* 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.

** 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.

** 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.

* When Han and Chewbacca are reunited. Chewie even gives him a BearHug.
--> '''Han''': Chewie? Chewie, is that you?
--> ''Chewie grabs Han and shakes him''
--> '''Han''': Ch-Chewie! I can't see, pal. What's going on?
--> ''Chewie barks something about Luke''
--> '''Han''': Luke? Luke's crazy! He can't even take care of himself, much less rescue anybody.
--> ''Chewie barks again''
--> '''Han''': A Jedi Knight? Jeez, I'm out of it for a little while, everyone gets delusions of grandeur!
** Speaking of which, Han's reunion with Luke. This is the first time since ''Echo Base'' in the last movie that they're together. Also a CrowningMomentOfFunny:

BearHug. He's just so elated to have his best buddy (and holder of his Life Debt) back. He can't even take care of himself, much less rescue anybody.

* One of the, possibly, more thoughtful tweaks to Return of the Jedi was showing various locations celebrating the fall of Emperor Palpatine. Yes, even Mos Eisley and the Imperial capital are celebrating his death.

** And when Vader's killed the Emperor and is slumped against the railing, clearly dying by inches, Luke crawls over to him and supports him, doing his best to help.
