...with a minimum of fuss. Throwing out old insults, basically being a jackass to him, bringing up a mutual old shame (read more about it in ''Scoundrels'' and the HanSoloTrilogy!)--and all of it meant to make Han pull a Cartman, tell Lando where to shove it, and fly away. Boom, no Solo, no trouble. Except Boba Fett and Vader were already there and very much in control; they basically point a gun at Lando's head, use Cloud City against him, and say Obey Or Die. And so he begrudginly lets Han in to the city, knowing [[OhCrap full damn well what's going to happen to all of them]].

* Alternatively, Crix Madine may have had something to do with it. He defected to the Rebellion [[RogueSquadron between Episodes IV and V]], but you never know how sincere he actually was.

* It's also possible that Lando's technicians did absolutely nothing in the first place. They didn't even touch the hyperdrive. Vader takes it as read that it's broken beyond repair, not counting on R2D2 being able to repair it.

** Luke locates Yoda so easily because Dagobah is a very small world. If I understand time dilation (and I don't,) a smaller planet = less gravitational force =
time passing more quickly relative to an observer under greater exertion, such as A) Lando and Vader on the "gas giant"-type Bespin or B) Han, Leia and Threepio jetting around at or approaching the speed of light. Yoda and Luke are the "old twin" of Einstein's thought experiment, having racked up significantly more relative "time" than the other characters.

[[WMG: Yoda visited Dagobah in his youth.]]
It's one of the worlds he visited as a Padawan/Knight, centuries before the events of the films. Because it was so long ago, the planet never got into galactic records and became a private planet for Yoda.

** Or it was just an awkward situation: accepting the above, pissing Han off was an excuse for Leia to TestKiss Luke. When [[NoSparks the test failed]], they both knew something else was up between them.

* It's highly unlikely to be ''that'' eccentric an orbit (otherwise it would probably be pretty dark as well as cold), but it's probably eccentric that the whole planet freezes over for a good part of the year. I'd imagine it's not called an "ice planet" for nothing, though, and the whole point of the Rebels setting up a secret base there is that it's the least likely place the Empire are likely to find it, its being so inhospitable. So, I'm imagining the warmer regions around the equator/tropics resemble the Arctic Tundra during "summer" whilst the areas nearer the poles stay permanently frozen.
