Luke Skywalker: [about life on Tatooine] If there's a bright center to the universe, you're on the planet that it's farthest from.
Princess Leia: Help me, Obi-Wan. You're my only hope.
Luke Skywalker: So, what do you think of her, Han?
Han Solo: I'm tryin' not to, kid.
Luke Skywalker: Good.
Han Solo: Still, she's got a lot of spirit. I don't know, whaddya think? You think a princess and a guy like me...
Luke Skywalker: No.
[R2-D2 and Chewbacca are playing a game aboard the Millennium Falcon]
Luke Skywalker: No, my father didn't fight in the Clone Wars. He was a navigator on a spice freighter.
Obi-Wan Kenobi: That's what your uncle told you. He didn't hold with your father's ideals; he felt he should've stayed here and not gotten involved.
Luke Skywalker: You fought in the Clone Wars?
Ben Obi-Wan Kenobi: Yes. I was once a Jedi knight, the same as your father.
Luke Skywalker: I wish I'd known him.
Ben Obi-Wan Kenobi: He was the best star pilot in the galaxy, and a cunning warrior.
Obi-Wan Kenobi: .And he was a good friend.
Princess Leia: No! Alderaan is peaceful! We have no weapons, you can't possibly...
Governor Tarkin: [impatiently] You would prefer another target, a military target? Then name the system! I grow tired of asking this so it will be the last time: *Where* is the rebel base?
Princess Leia Organa: ... Dantooine. They're on Dantooine.
Governor Tarkin: There. You see, Lord Vader, she can be reasonable. Continue with the operation; you may fire when ready.
Princess Leia Organa: WHAT?
Governor Tarkin: You're far too trusting. Dantooine is too remote to make an effective demonstration - but don't worry; we will deal with your rebel friends soon enough.
Luke Skywalker: [As The Millenium Falcon approaches the Death Star aboard ] I have a very bad feeling about this.
Aunt Beru: Where are you going?
Luke: Looks like I'm going nowhere... I'm gonna finish cleaning those 'droids.
Aunt Beru: [after Luke leaves] Owen, he can't stay here forever, most of his friends have gone. It means so much to him.
Uncle Owen: Well, I'll make it up to him next year, I promise.
Aunt Beru: Luke's just not a farmer, Owen. He has too much of his father in him.
Uncle Owen: That's what I'm afraid of.
Obi-Wan Kenobi: [as Luke wakes up after being knocked out by Tuskan Raiders] Rest easy, son. You've had a busy day. You're fortunate to be all in one piece.
Luke Skywalker: Ben? Ben Kenobi? Boy, am I glad to see you.
Obi-Wan Kenobi: The Jundland Wastes are not to be travelled lightly. Tell me, young Luke, what brings you out this far?
Luke Skywalker: This droid. He's searching for his former master. I've never seen such devotion in a droid before. Ah, he claims to be the property of an Obi-Wan Kenobi. Is he a relative of yours? Do you know what he's talking about?
Obi-Wan Kenobi: [thoughtfully] Obi-Wan Kenobi. Obi-Wan... Now, that's a name I've not heard in a long time.
Luke Skywalker: I think my uncle knows him. He said he was dead.
Obi-Wan Kenobi: Oh, he's not dead. Not yet.
Luke Skywalker: You know him?
Obi-Wan Kenobi: But of course I know him. He's me.
Obi-Wan Kenobi: I haven't gone by the name of Obi-Wan since... oh, before you were born.
Luke Skywalker: So. You got your reward and you're just leaving, then?
Han Solo: That's right, yeah. Got some old debts I gotta pay off with this stuff. Even if I didn't, you don't think I'd be fool enough to stick around here, do you? Why don't you come with us? You're pretty good in a fight. We could use you.
Luke Skywalker: Come on. Why don't you take a look around. You know what's about to happen, what they're up against. They could use a good pilot like you, you're turning your back on them.
Han Solo: What good is a reward if you ain't around to use it? Besides, attacking that battle station is not my idea of courage. It's more like, suicide.
C-3PO: Did you hear that? They shut down the main reactor. We'll be destroyed for sure. This is madness.
[Luke is practicing lightsaber drills against a remote] Han Solo: Good against remotes is one thing. Good against the living, that's something else.
Han Solo: [after Leia blasts a vent] What the hell are you doing?
Princess Leia: Well, somebody has to save our skins. Into the garbage, fly-boy!
Han Solo: Can't get out that way.
Princess Leia: Looks like you've managed to cut off our only escape route.
Han Solo: [sarcastic] Maybe you'd like it back in your cell, your Highness.
Luke Skywalker: You know, I think that R2 unit we bought may have been stolen.
Uncle Owen: What makes you think that?
Luke Skywalker: Well, I stumbled across a recording while I was cleaning him. He says that he belongs to someone named Obi-Wan Kenobi. I wonder if he's related to old Ben.
Uncle Owen: Tomorrow I want you to take that R2 unit to Anchorhead and have its memory erased. That'll be the end of it. It belongs to us now.
Luke Skywalker: But what if this Obi-Wan comes looking for him?
Uncle Owen: He won't. I don't think he exists anymore. He died about the same time as your father.
Luke Skywalker: He knew my father?
Uncle Owen: I told you to forget it.
Luke Skywalker: You know, between his howling and your blasting everything in sight, it's a wonder the whole station doesn't know we're here.
Han Solo: Bring 'em on, I'd prefer a straight fight to all this sneaking around.
