Quotes / Return of the Jedi

Han Solo: Together again, huh?
Luke Skywalker: Wouldn't miss it.
Han: How we doin'?
Luke: Same as always.
C-3P0: (over loudspeaker) Victims of the almighty Sarlacc! His excellency hopes you will die honourably. But should any of you wish to beg for mercy, the great Jabba the Hutt will now listen to your pleas.
Han Solo: Threepio! You tell that slimy piece of worm-ridden filth! He'll get no such pleasure from us!
Chewbacca: (roars in agreement)
Han: (to Chewie) Right?
Chewie: ... Roh!

Chewbacca: RAHR! RAW! RAH, RA, RAH!
Han Solo: BOBA FETT?! BOBA FETT! WHERE?! (swings vibro-axe blindly and scores a direct hit to Fett's jetpack behind him as the Mandolorian tries to snipe Luke with his wrist blaster, the blow ignites his thrusters and sends the famed mercenary flying towards Jabba's sailing barge without any course control)
Boba Fett: AAAARRRGGGHHHH!!! (slams head first into the hull to drop and tumble into the Sarlacc's mouth) AIIIEEE!
The Sarlacc Pit: (BELCH)

Master Yoda: (facing the other way) That face you make... look I so old to young eyes?
Luke Skywalker: (caught, quick to deflect his worries) No. Of course not.
Yoda: (chuckles) I do. Yes, I do. Sick have I become, old and weak... (embers reignite as he sees Luke's distress) When nine hundred years old you reach, look as good you will not, hmm?
(they both laugh but Yoda devolves into coughing and limps to sit on his bed)
Yoda: Soon will I rest, yes, forever sleep. Earned it I have.
Luke: (disbelieving) Master Yoda, you can't die!
Yoda: Ah, strong am I with the Force, but not that strong. Twilight is upon me, and soon, night must fall. (lies down as Luke helps tuck his master into bed) That is the way of things. The way of the Force.

Princess Leia Organa: Luke, what's wrong?
Luke Skywalker: Leia, do you remember your mother? Your real mother?
Leia: Just a little bit. She died when I was very young.
Luke: What do you remember?
Leia: Just... images really. Feelings.
Luke: (gently) Tell me.
Leia: She was... very beautiful. Kind, but sad. Why are you asking me this?
Luke: I have no memory of my mother. I never knew her...
Leia: (concerned) Luke, tell me. What's troubling you?
Luke: Vader is here, now, on this moon.
Leia: How do you know?
Luke: I felt his presence. He's come for me. He can feel when I'm near. That's why I have to go. As long as I stay, I'm endangering the group and our mission here. I have to face him.
Leia: Why?
Luke: ... He's my father.
Leia: (stunned beyond belief) Your father?
Luke: There's more, it won't be easy for you to hear it but you must — If I don't make it back, you're the only hope for the Alliance.
Leia: Luke, don't talk that way. You have a power I don't understand, and could never have!
Luke: You're wrong, Leia. You have that power, too. In time, you'll learn to use it as I have. ... The Force is strong in my family. My father has it. I have it. And... my sister has it. Yes - it's you, Leia.
Leia: (quietly) ...I know. Somehow...I've always known.

Darth Vader: The Emperor has been expecting you.
Luke Skywalker: I know, father.
Vader: ... So, you have accepted the truth.
Vader: (emphasising sternly with Luke's saber) That name - no longer has any meaning for me.
Luke: It is the name of your true self, you've only forgotten. I know there is good in you. The Emperor hasn't driven it from you fully. (turns away from his father and leans against the bridge's railing) That was why you couldn't destroy me. That's why you won't bring me to your Emperor now.
Vader: (ominously ignites Luke's saber close to his son's unprotected back) I see you have constructed a new lightsaber... (examines the craftsmanship) Your skills are complete. (shuts the weapon down and turns his own back on his son) Indeed you are powerful, as the Emperor has foreseen...
Luke: (beseeches the bowed form of his sire) Come with me.
Vader: Obi-Wan once thought as you do... You don't know the power of the Dark Side. I must obey my Master.
Luke: (the tiniest of head shakes) I will not turn. And you'll be forced to kill me.
Vader: If that is your destiny...
Luke: Search your feelings, father. You can't do this. (urgently) I feel the conflict within you, let go of your hate!
Vader: (with the barest traces of both admiration and sadness) It is - too late for me, son. (gestures to his men, two stormtroopers prepare to escort Luke) The Emperor will show you the true nature of the Force. He is your Master now.
Luke: (nods understandingly, almost pityingly) Then my father is truly dead.

"Everything that has transpired has done so according to my design. Your friends, down there on the sanctuary moon, are walking into a trap, as is your Rebel fleet. It was *I* who allowed the Alliance to know the location of the shield generator. It is quite safe from your pitiful little band. An entire legion of my best troops awaits them. (mocking facsimile of grandfatherly concern) Oh, I'm afraid the deflector shield will be quite operational when your friends arrive..."
Emperor Palpatine

Admiral Ackbar

Emperor Palpatine: (cackling) Heh, heh, heh, heh, haaa! Gooooood! Your hate has made you powerful. Now, fulfill your destiny! And take your father's place at my side!
Luke Skywalker: (realises how similarly Anakin fell, by falling into lower emotions to protect those he loved, he deactivates his saber) Never. (throws his only defence away) I'll never turn to the dark side. ... You've failed your highness. I am a Jedi, like my father before me.

(As the Millennium Falcon and Wedge Antilles fly deeper into the Death Star, Admiral Ackbar observes the ongoing space battle. Before him, one of the Star Destroyers escorting Executor is blown to hell)
Admiral Ackbar: We've got to give those fighters more time! Concentrate all fire on that Super Star Destroyer!
(A pair of A-Wings dive on one of the Executor's shield generator domes, which blasts apart. On the bridge, the crew is shaken as one of the officers checks a readout)
Bridge Officer: Sir, we've lost our bridge deflector shield!
Admiral Firmus Piett: Intensify the forward batteries. I don't want anything to get through.
(Far below them, an A-Wing and X-Wing are in the Executor's superstructure. The A-Wing sustains a glancing blow and flies off, while the X-Wing is vaporized)
Piett: (sees the approaching A-Wing) Intensify forward firepower!
Commander Gherant: TOO LATE!
(Piett and Gherant dive for cover as the A-Wing rams into the bridge, killing everyone. Outside, we see the bridge tower erupt in flame from front to back. With its main bridge and navigation complex destroyed, the mighty flagship loses attitude control and dives towards the Death Star. Ackbar slumps back in his chair as his crew cheers at such a kill. Executor then slams into the Death Star bow first, creating a massive fireball that consumes the ship)

(Vader had just pulled the Force Lightning shooting Emperor Palpatine off of Luke, and threw him down a very deep shaft to his death. Vader collapses from absorbing the lightning and his respirator failing. Luke is now cradling his father's dying form. Later, as alarms blare and the Imperial Navy flees the doomed station, they make their way to a shuttle bay, but Vader collapses at the foot of his own ship)
Vader: Luke...help me take this mask off.
Luke: But you'll die!
Vader: Nothing...can stop that now. Just for once...let me look at you...with my own eyes.
(Luke does just that, revealing the pale, emaciated face of Anakin Skywalker)
Anakin: Now...go, my son. Leave me.
Luke: No. You're coming with me. I'll not leave you here, I've got to save you.
Anakin: You already...have, Luke. You were right. You were right about me. Tell your sister...you were right.
Luke: Father... I won't leave you!
