** It becomes a lot more poignant with further thought. In that moment, Luke is alone in the trench. There is nobody who can help him. The one person who could come to his rescue is the last person who ''would'', who told him it was suicide, who told him he would never risk his life on heroism, who got his reward and left without looking back. And then '''''Han comes back.'''''

* At the end we find out that R2 will NOT be the victim of the HeroicSacrifice after all.

* A meta-example, overlapping with awesome; at the 1997 MTV Movie Awards, Chewbacca was given the Lifetime Achievement Award - in the form of the medal that he never got at the end of Episode IV. The really awesome part? George Lucas allowed it on one condition...that Peter Mayhew himself wear the wookie suit. Even better, Carrie Fisher was the one who gave Chewie his medal. The ovation of the crowd was deafening.

** And especially after the Battle of Yavin, where they're laughing together in a big celebratory GroupHug.

* Meta example, but MarkHamill recalls goofing around on set to make Creator/GeorgeLucas laugh because the director looked like he was about to cry. It's nice to see actors willing to mess up just to make their directors crack.

** Similarly, even though they didn't share any screen time, Mark got to meet Creator/PeterCushing during production, [[TheKnightsWhoSaySquee who was amazed at how much he admired him]].

* The scene right after Obi-Wan saves Luke and the droids from the Tusken Raiders. Luke and Kenobi find C-3P0 with a severed arm and the droid suggests he be abandoned while the others get away. Luke's reaction is simply that of ''course'' they are not going leave their companion behind. If that does not mark Luke as a hero you can respect, nothing will in the series.

** Although, in a bit of FridgeLogic, at that point in the movie, Luke is still focused on retrieving a newly-purchased, and probably expensive, droid so he can get to work on his farm chores, and his search has resulted in the other new droid becoming damaged. He's trying to preserve a valuable piece of equipment, and if that means he has to cajole and encourage Threepio to get him moving, then so be it.

** And when Threepio is lamenting about how there's no point in the others being put at risk to save him and how he's done for, Luke comfortingly replies with "No you're not, what kind of talk is that?" He's actually treating this droid -- who many others could have dismissed as just a machine and abandoned to get out of danger -- like a person, and it really shows what a good guy Luke is.
