** The fact that we see the first possible kernels of Obi-Wan and Yoda being wrong about Vader in this scene; Luke offers Vader to come with him, and for the first time across the entire trilogy, Vader's shell breaks and the Dark Lord of the Sith seems weary, quiet, and resigned. Doubles as a TearJerker if you consider that Vader is entirely aware of how his master operates at this point, and that Luke is his intended replacement.

* Darth Vader seemingly throwing away the fight just so Luke can win, Deep down he knows the Emperor expects only one of them to come out alive and isn't willing to kill his own child so in an act of attempted sacrifice he toys with Luke long enough to get him angry and leads both of them towards the shaft allowing Vader to put himself on the railing allowing Luke to deal him every blow till he cuts his arm off allowing Luke to come out as the victor.
* Vader putting his hand out towards Luke as if it's a way to physically tell him to calm down and control his emotions

* Han misinterpreting Leia when she says she loves Luke, and willing to step out of the way when Luke returns, not knowing Luke and Leia recently found out they're brother and sister.

* Luke and Darth Vader's interaction when Luke surrenders himself. Luke tries so hard to speak to his father and bring him back from the DarkSide, even though Vader repeatedly denies that there's any hope left for him. Heck, the fact that he calls him "Father" is an indicator that some love is there between them.

** Anakin's smile the moment he lays his eyes on his son. It tells us his emotion with just one expression, he's proud of his children.

** His son has utterly surpassed him; he's mastered himself and the ways of the Jedi, has gained power greater than his own without falling to the dark side, and has shown up alone to face the most powerful evil in the galaxy and has basically ''just won'' by refusing to give the Emperor what he wants- how proud would that make anyone feel, to see their son be so epically awesome?

** The Special Edition ending has the entire galaxy celebrating when the second Death Star is destroyed, which means that the Imperial army is gone and freedom and democracy have returned. It's just... the fireworks, the cheering, the energy... *sniff*
*** Made even better when Luke sees his redeemed father's spirit, returned to the man he once was before he fell to the dark side, or as the man he would have been had he not turned, depending on your preference of editions, sharing a friendly look with his old master, and then favoring his son with a loving smile.
* The hug between Luke and [[AcePilot Wedge,]] especially when you consider how Wedge and Rogue Squadron fought nonstop while Luke trained in the Force. Their relationship may have been mainly professional, but their embrace is warm and brotherly, each sharing their relief and thanking the other for their tenacity.



* Han was skeptical about Luke's plan to save him. But who can blame him? The first plan they did together, saving Leia aboard the Death Star, barely worked out, and the last time they were together, Han had to save ''him'' from Hoth's subarctic temperatures, that again, both barely survived. But after they get away, Han is grateful, telling him "Thanks for coming after me. Now, I owe you one."

* When the heroes are about to be executed by Jabba:
-->'''Han''': How we doin', kid?
-->'''Luke''': [[SelfDeprecatingHumour Same as always.]]
-->'''Han''': [[GallowsHumour That bad, huh?]]
* It's blink-and-you-miss-it, but in the second movie, Vader says, "Only your hatred can destroy me." Think about it - there's a double meaning: [[spoiler:it would kinda suck if your own son hated you, wouldn't it?]]
* Luke's ShutUpHannibal to The Emperor, but one line always stands out because of its multitude of heartwarming implications;
-->'''Luke''': I am a Jedi, like my father before me.
** Darth Vader's son, who has every reason to deny even the remotest connection with him, has just openly, and proudly acknowledged the relationship between them. Considering he's been trying to get his son on his side for two movies now, that's gotta mean something.
** That the man he was, someone who has made so many terrible mistakes, is a person his son has decided is worthy of his respect and admiration. In fact, the implication of that statement is that he ''still considers'' his father a Jedi, and is therefore capable of redemption.
