Luke: Got 'im! I got 'im!
Han Solo: Great, kid. Don't get cocky.

Han Solo: This is not going to work.
Luke: Why didn't you say so before?
Han Solo: I did say so before.

Obi-Wan: Luke, there was nothing you could have done, had you been there. You would have been killed, too, and the droids would now be in the hands of the Empire.
Luke: I want to come with you to Alderaan. There is nothing here for me now. I want to learn the ways of the Force and become a Jedi like my father.

Han Solo: Here's where the fun begins!
Obi-Wan: How long before you can make the jump to light speed?
Han Solo: It'll take a few moments to get the coordinates from the navi-computer.
[the ship begins to rock violently as lasers hit it]
Luke: Are you kidding? At the rate they're gaining...
Han Solo: Traveling through hyperspace isn't like dusting crops, boy!

Han Solo: Stay sharp. There's two more coming in. They'll try and cut us off.
Luke: Why don't you outrun them? I thought you said this thing was fast.
Han Solo: Watch your mouth kid, or you're gonna find yourself floating home. We'll be safe enough once we make the jump to hyperspace. Besides, I know a few maneuvers. We'll lose em'!

Luke: [on the Millenium Falcon] What a piece of junk!
Han Solo: She'll make point five past lightspeed. She may not look like much, but she's got it where it counts, kid. I've made a lot of special modifications myself.

Luke: I don't understand how we got by those troops. I thought we were dead.
Obi-Wan: The Force can have a strong influence on the weak-minded.

Luke: How did my father die?
Obi-Wan: A young Jedi named Darth Vader, who was a pupil of mine until he turned to evil, helped the Empire hunt down and destroy the Jedi knights. He betrayed and murdered your father.

Luke: I'm Luke Skywalker. I'm here to rescue you.
Princess Leia: You're who?

Luke: Listen, I can't get involved. I've got work to do. It's not that I like the Empire; I hate it. But there's nothing I can do about it right now... It's all such a long way from here.
Obi-Wan: That's your uncle talking.

Dr. Evazan: [explaining] He doesn't like you.
Luke: I'm sorry.
Dr. Evazan: I don't like you either. You just watch yourself. We're wanted men. I have the death sentence on twelve systems.
Luke: I'll be careful.
Dr. Evazan: You'll be dead!
