Darth Vader: And now, young Starkiller, you will die. I will have justice for my dead son!
C-3PO: You're doomed, Corey.
Luke: Maybe...I was saving this to get Vader distracted so I could land a mortal blow, but screw it...Obi-Wan never told you what happened to your son.
Darth Vader: He told me enough. He told me you killed him.
Luke: No. I am your son.
Darth Vader: No. No. That's not true. That's impossible!
Luke: Search your feelings, you know it to be true!
Darth Vader: No! Noooooo...!

Luke: You can't kill me now - you're my father.
Darth Vader: No. I know that's not true. That really is impossible.
Luke: Oh come on, I figured it out. All very clever. Princess is your daughter, adopted at birth by Bail Organa and Breha Moon-Flower. And I'm her twin brother, placed in the care of Owen and Beru Lars on Tatooine. Ergo, you are Anakin, my father. You killed Padmé, the woman you loved. My mother!
Darth Vader: No.
Luke: You are my father!
Darth Vader: No, Luke. I am your mother.
