Princess Leia: [in a message] General Kenobi: Years ago, you served my father in the Clone Wars; now he begs you to help him in his struggle against the Empire. I regret that I am unable to present my father's request to you in person; but my ship has fallen under attack and I'm afraid my mission to Alderaan has failed. I've placed information vital to the survival of the rebellion into the memory systems of this R2 unit. My father will know how to retrieve it. You must see this droid safely delivered to him on Alderaan. This is our most desperate hour. Help me, Obi-Wan Kenobi; you're my only hope.
Help me, Obi-Wan Kenobi; you're my only hope.Princess Leia
Luke: I'm Luke Skywalker. I'm here to rescue you.
Princess Leia: You're who?
Well, you can forget your troubles with those Imperial slugs. I told you I'd outrun 'em.Han Solo

Hokey religions and ancient weapons are no match for a good blaster at your side, kid.Han Solo
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.
The Force is what gives a Jedi his power. It's an energy field created by all living things. It surrounds us and penetrates us. It binds the galaxy together.Obi-Wan
That's no moon. It's a space station.Obi-Wan
Princess Leia: But Alderaan is peaceful! We have no weapons, you can't possibly...
Governor Tarkin: [impatiently] Would you prefer another target, a military target? Then name the system! I grow tired of asking this so it'll be the last time: Where is the rebel base?
Princess Leia: ...Dantooine. They're on Dantooine.
Governor Tarkin: There. See, Lord Vader, she can be reasonable. Continue with the operation; you may fire when ready.
Princess Leia: WHAT?
Governor Tarkin: You're far too trusting. Dantooine is too remote to make an effective demonstration - but don't worry; we'll deal with your rebel friends soon enough.
I don't know who you are or where you've come from, but from now on you'll do as I say, okay?Princess Leia
General Willard: You're safe. When we heard about Alderaan, we feared the worst.
Princess Leia: We have no time for sorrows, Commander. You must use the information in this R-2 unit to help plan the attack- it's our only hope.
