* Lando didn't hold Han against when when he punched him, understanding what Han's feeling so he let it slide. He even stopped his guards from restraining Han for striking him.

* The scene where Leia is briefing some RedShirts at the beginning of the Battle Of Hoth. Even when one of them expresses doubt she doesn't get mad or tell him to shut up, but instead reassures him it will work. Which just shows [[AMotherToHerMen how much she cares about even the low ranking people]].

* After the release of ''Film/Solo:AStarWarsStory'', Lando encountering the Millennium Falcon again after so many years is given new levels of heartwarming context. His comments to Han of "What have you done to my ship?", followed up by "That ship's saved my life quite a few times! She's the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy!" are especially poignant, when you consider that [[spoiler: the consciousness of his trusted first mate, L3-37, was been integrated into the Falcon's systems after her destruction.]] And at the end, when the Rebels escape, Lando, despite the dire circumstances, has to feel elated to finally be reunited with his beloved ship [[spoiler: and, by extension, L3]].

Added DiffLines:

* Again on Hoth with an AT-AT approaching Luke took a second to check if his copilot was still alive before bailing out to avoid getting crushed. Of course ideally you want to bring the dead back for burial but war doesn't always allow for that. Even with a very nasty death on the line though Luke did the right thing and made sure that the other person in that Snow Speeder was definitely dead before leaving him behind.


** General Veers also makes a small nervous attempt to defend Ozzel after his unstealthy blunder, seemingly knowing [[YouHaveFailedMe Vader's plans for him]].

to:

* Not believing [[spoiler: Lando]]'s HeelFaceTurn, Chewie proceeds to strangle him, with Leia's approval; C3-PO is the one to shout, "Trust him! Trust him!"



to:

* The BitterSweetEnding: After the heroes have been put through the ringer and Han has been taken, we see that our heroes are not beaten yet. Luke has been given a new prosthetic hand, Lando and Chewie set off to find Han, and we see that the Rebels were successful in escaping and regrouping, with Luke, Leia, C-3PO, and R2-D2 looking out a viewport at the massed Rebel Fleet, the biggest force of good guys we've seen in the franchise up to this point.
