lines] Luke: Echo
Three to Echo Seven. Han, old buddy, do you read me? Han Solo: Loud
and clear, kid. What's up? Luke: Well,
I finished my circle. I don't pick up any life readings. Han Solo:
There isn't enough life on this ice cube to fill a space cruiser.
Sensors are placed. I'm going back. Luke: Right.
I'll see you shortly. There's a meteorite that hit the ground near
here. I want to check it out. It won't take long.
I am wondering, why are you here? Luke: I'm
looking for someone. Yoda: Looking?
Found someone, you have, I would say, hmmm? Luke:
Right... Yoda: Help
you I can. Yes, mmmm? Luke: I
don't think so. I'm looking for a great warrior. Yoda: Ohhh.
Great warrior. [Yoda laughs and shakes
his head] Yoda: Wars
not make one great.
Why wish you become Jedi? Luke: Well,
mostly because of my father, I guess. Yoda:
Ahh...father. Powerful Jedi was he. Powerful Jedi. Luke:[suspicious] Oh,
come on! How can you know my father? You don't even know who I am. Oh,
I don't even know what I'm doing here! We're wasting our time! [Yoda
looks away from Luke] Yoda: I
cannot teach him. The boy has no patience. Obi-Wan:[voice only] He
will learn patience. Yoda: Much
anger in him...like his father. Obi-Wan:[voice only] Was I
any different when you taught me?
[to Luke] Yoda: Ready
are you? What know you of ready? For eight hundred years have I trained
Jedi. My own counsel will I keep on who is to be trained. A Jedi must
have the deepest commitment, the most serious mind. This one a long
time have I watched. All his life has he looked away...to the future,
to the horizon. Never his mind on where he was. Hmm? What he was doing.
Hmph. Adventure. Heh. Excitement. Heh. A Jedi craves not these things.
You are reckless.
[when Luke can't
levitate his X-Wing out of the bog] Luke: I
can't. It's too big! Yoda:
Size matters not. Look at me. Judge me by my size, do you? Hmm? Hmm.
And well you should not. For my ally is the Force, and a powerful ally
it is. Life creates it, makes it grow. Its energy surrounds us and
binds us. Luminous beings are we, not this crude matter. You must feel
the Force around you; here, between you, me, the tree, the rock,
everywhere, yes. Even between the land and the ship.
[Luke's ship sinks into
the mud] Luke: We'll
never get it out now! Yoda: So
certain are you. Always with you it cannot be done. Hear you nothing
that I say?
run! Yes, a Jedi's strength flows from the Force. But beware of the
dark side. Anger, fear, aggression; the dark side of the Force are
they. Easily they flow, quick to join you in a fight. If once you start
down the dark path, forever will it dominate your destiny, consume you
it will, as it did Obi-Wan's apprentice. Luke:
Vader...is the dark side stronger? Yoda: No,
no, no. Quicker, easier, more seductive. Luke: But
how am I to know the good side from the bad? Yoda: You
will know...when you are calm, at peace, passive. A Jedi uses the Force
for knowledge and defense, NEVER for attack. Luke: But
tell my why I can't... Yoda: No,
no! There is no "why".
right, I'll give it a try. Yoda: No.
Try not. Do or do not. There is no try.
Luke: I want
my lamp back. I'm gonna need it to get out of this slimy mud hole. Yoda: Mud
Slimy? My home this is!
[to Luke] Yoda: You
must unlearn what you have learned.
possibility of successfully navigating an asteroid field is
approximately 3,720 to 1. Han Solo:
Never tell me the odds.
If I may venture an opinion... Han Solo:
I'm not really interested in your opinion 3PO.
What is thy bidding, my master? Emperor: There
is a great disturbance in the Force.
I have felt it. Emperor: We
have a new enemy, the young Rebel who destroyed the Death Star. I have
no doubt this boy is the offspring of Anakin Skywalker. Darth Vader:
How is that possible? Emperor:
Search your feelings, Lord Vader. You will know it to be true. He could
destroy us. Darth Vader:
He's just a boy. Obi-Wan can no longer help him. Emperor: The
Force is strong with him. The son of Skywalker must not become a Jedi. Darth Vader:
If he could be turned, he will become a powerful ally. Emperor: Yes.
Yes. He would be a great asset. Can it be done? Darth Vader:
He will join us or die, my master.
