Princess Leia: Governor Tarkin, I should have expected to find you holding Vader's leash. I recognized your foul stench when I was brought on board.
Governor Tarkin: Charming to the last. You don't know how hard I found it, signing the order to terminate your life.
Princess Leia Organa: I'm surprised that you had the courage to take responsibility yourself.
Governor Tarkin: Princess Leia, before your execution, I'd like you to join me for a ceremony that will make this battle station operational. No star system will dare oppose the Emperor now.
Princess Leia: The more you tighten your grip, Tarkin, the more star systems will slip through your fingers.
Governor Tarkin: Not after we demonstrate the capabilities of this station.
Princess Leia: [Seeing the Millennium Falcon for the first time]
You came in that thing? You're braver than I thought.
[Luke blows up his first TIE fighter]
Luke Skywalker: Got him! I GOT HIM!
Han Solo: Great, kid! Don't get cocky.
Darth Vader: Where are those transmissions you intercepted? WHAT have you DONE with those plans?
[Holding Captain Antilles off the floor, the Captain's feet are dangling at Vader's knees]
Captain Antilles: We intercepted no transmissions...
[Gasps]... This is a consular ship... We're on a - [chokes] diplomatic mission...
Darth Vader: Tear this ship apart until you find those plans! And bring me all passengers, I want them ALIVE!
Luke Skywalker: [on first seeing the Millenium Falcon] What a piece of junk!
Han Solo: She'll make point five past light speed. She may not look like much, but she's got it where it counts, kid.
Obi-Wan Kenobi: There was nothing you could have done, Luke, had you been there. You'd have been killed too, and the droids would now be in the hands of the Empire.
Luke Skywalker: I want to come with you to Alderaan. There's nothing for me here now. I want to learn the ways of the Force and become a Jedi like my father.
Darth Vader: This will be a day long remembered. It has seen the end of Kenobi, it will soon see the end of the Rebellion.
Princess Leia: Darth Vader. Only you could be so bold. The Imperial Senate will not sit still for this. When they hear you've attacked a diplomatic...
Darth Vader: Don't act so surprised, Your Highness. You weren't on any mercy mission this time. Several transmissions were beamed to this ship by rebel spies. I want to know what happened to the plans they sent you.
Princess Leia: I don't know what you're talking about. I am a member of the Imperial Senate on a diplomatic mission to Alderaan...
Darth Vader: You are part of the Rebel Alliance and a traitor! Take her away!
Han Solo: Not a bad bit of rescuing, huh? You know, sometimes I amaze even myself.
Princess Leia: That doesn't sound too hard.
Han Solo: Where did you dig up that old fossil?
Luke Skywalker: Ben is a great man.
Han Solo: Yeah, great at getting us into trouble.
[As Han runs off chasing some Stormtroopers] Princess Leia: He certainly has courage.
Luke Skywalker: What good will it do us if he gets himself killed? Come on.
[Luke and Leia run off in the opposite direction]
