The Emperor: You want this, don't you? The hate is swelling in you now. Take your Jedi weapon. Use it. I am unarmed. Strike me down with it. Give in to your anger. With each passing moment you make yourself more my servant.
Luke: No.
The Emperor: It is unavoidable. It is your destiny. You, like your father, are now mine.

The Emperor: I'm looking forward to completing your training. In time you will call me master.
Luke: You're gravely mistaken, you won't convert me as you did my father.
The Emperor: Oh no, my young Jedi. You will find that it is you who are mistaken, about a great many things.

Luke: You will take me to Jabba now.
Bib Fortuna: I take you to Jabba now.
Luke: You serve your master well. And you will be rewarded.

Darth Vader: The Emperor has been expecting you.
Luke: I know, father.
Darth Vader: So, you have accepted the truth?
Luke: I have accepted that you were once Anakin Skywalker, my father.
Darth Vader: [angrily] That name no longer has any meaning for me!

Darth Vader: Luke... help me take this mask off.
Luke: But you'll die.
Darth Vader: Nothing can stop that now. Just for once... let me... look on you with my OWN eyes.

Luke: Never. I'll never turn to the Dark Side. You've failed, your highness. I am a Jedi, like my father before me.
The Emperor: So be it... Jedi.

Darth Vader: You cannot hide forever, Luke.
Luke: I will not fight you.
Darth Vader: Give yourself to the Dark Side. It is the only way you can save your friends. Yes, your thoughts betray you. Your feelings for them are strong. Especially for... sister. So, you have a twin sister! Your feelings have now betrayed her, too. Obi-Wan was wise to hide her from me. Now his failure is complete. If you will not turn to the Dark Side... then perhaps she will...
Luke: Never!

Luke: If I don't make it back, you're the only hope for the Alliance.
Princess 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 runs strong in my family. My father has it. I have it. And... my sister has it. Yes. It's you, Leia.
Princess Leia: I know. Somehow, I've always known.

Han Solo: Chewie and I will check it out, you two stay here.
Luke: Quietly. There may be more of them out there.
Han Solo: Hey, it's me!

Luke: Master Yoda, you can't die.
Yoda: Strong am I with the Force, but not that strong.

Luke: Master Yoda, is Darth Vader my father?
Yoda: Rest I need. Yes, rest.
Luke: Yoda, I must know.
Yoda: Your father he is.

Luke: I'm endangering the mission. I shouldn't have come.
Han Solo: It's your imagination, kid. Come on. Let's keep a little optimism here.
