Darth Vader: You've learned much, young one.
Luke: You'll find I'm full of surprises.

Lando: Lord Vader, we only use this facility for carbon freezing. If you put him in there it might kill him.
Darth Vader: I do not want the Emperor's prize damaged. We will test it on Captain Solo.

Darth Vader: What is it, General?
General Veers: My Lord, the fleet has moved out of lightspeed. Com Scan has detected an energy field protecting an area of the sixth planet of the Hoth System. The field is strong enough to deflect any bombardment.
Darth Vader: The Rebels are alerted to our presence. Admiral Ozzel came out of lightspeed too close to the system.
General Veers: He felt surprise was wiser...
Darth Vader: He is as clumsy as he is stupid. General, prepare your troops for a surface attack.

Luke, you can destroy the Emperor. He has foreseen this. It is your destiny. Join me, and together we can rule the galaxy as father and son.

All too easy.


Darth Vader: You have failed me for the last time, Admiral. Captain Piett?
Captain Piett: Yes, my lord?
Darth Vader: Make ready to land our troops beyond their energy field, and deploy the fleet, so that nothing gets off the system.

C-3PO: Oh. They've encased him in Carbonite. He should be quite well protected. If he survived the freezing process, that is.
Darth Vader: Well, Calrissian, did he survive?
Lando: Yes, he's alive, and in perfect hibernation.
Darth Vader: He's all yours, bounty hunter.

Boba Fett: What if he doesn't survive? He's worth a lot to me.
Darth Vader: The Empire will compensate you if he dies. Put him in.

[to Luke] You are beaten. It is useless to resist. Don't let yourself be destroyed as Obi-Wan did.

Lando: Lord Vader, what about Leia and the Wookie?
Darth Vader: They must never again leave this city.
Lando: That was never a condition of our agreement, nor was giving Han to this bounty hunter.
Darth Vader: Perhaps you think you're being treated unfairly?
Lando: No.
Darth Vader: Good, because it would be unfortunate if I had to leave a garrison here.
Lando: [to himself] This deal is getting worse all the time.

Darth Vader: You may take Captain Solo to Jabba the Hutt after I have Skywalker.
Boba Fett: He's no good to me dead.
Darth Vader: He will not be permanently damaged.

Darth Vader: There will be a substantial reward for the one who finds the Millennium Falcon. You are free to use any methods necessary, but I want them alive. No disintegrations.
Boba Fett: As you wish.
