  • When Han and Leia visit Luke in the sickbay after being attacked by the wampa.
    Han: Don't forget, that's two you owe me, junior.
    Han: Hey, Luke, thanks. Thanks for coming after me. Now I owe you one.
  • "I love you." "I know." Both times.

  • Obi-Wan's interior monologue in the novelization of Revenge of the Sith where, after mutilating Anakin he realizes that he can honor the memory of the man his friend used to be by protecting Anakin's kids.
    • “Anakin survived it,” Obi-Wan said. “Luke can, too. And I can — well, I could take him there, and watch over him. Protect him from the worst of the planet’s dangers, until he can learn to protect himself.”
    • “Like a father you wish to be, young Obi-Wan?”
    • “More an . . . eccentric old uncle, I think. It is a part I can play very well. To keep watch over Anakin’s son—“ Obi-Wan sighed, finally allowing his face to register a suggestion of his old, gentle smile. “I can’t imagine a better way to spend the rest of my life.”
    • Also:

  • "Rey's Survival Guide" is filled with stories about how tough life on Jakku is but it still contains some sweet moments.
    • The fact that the guide exists. Rey wrote it to pass on what she knows about living on Jakku to whoever shows up next so that they might have a chance of surviving too.
    • Rey writes that she once came across a dead TIE Fighter pilot. She scavenged all the gear he had and buried him in his uniform.
    • Rey writes "TOTAL SALVAGE FROM SHIP: 37 PORTIONS. THANK YOU YELLOW-4!!!" next to a diagram of an X-wing, along with a smiley face.
    • At the end of the guide (before the "Addendum that describes the early events of The Force Awakens), Rey says she enjoys seeing strange ships take off again and how happy she is for those who make it off Jakku even if she can't.
