Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back (1980) Quotes

Latest quotes added:

Luke Skywalker (to Chewie and Lando): Take care, you two. May the Force be with you.

C-3PO (to R2): How would you know the hyperdrive is deactivated? The city's central computer told you? R2-D2, you know better than to trust a strange computer.

Darth Vader (to Luke): You can destroy the emperor. He has foreseen this. It is your destiny. Join me... and together we can rule the galaxy as father and son. Come with me. It is the only way.

Darth Vader: There is no escape. Don't make me destroy you. You do not yet realize your importance. You have only begun to discover your power. Join me... and I will complete your training. With our combined strength... we can end this destructive conflict... and bring order to the galaxy.

Luke Skywalker: I'll never join you!

Darth Vader (to Luke): Obi-Wan has taught you well. You have controlled your fear. Now, release your anger. Only your hatred can destroy me.

Darth Vader (to Luke): The Force is with you, young Skywalker. But you are not a Jedi yet.

Master Yoda (about Luke): Told you, I did. Reckless is he. Now... matters are worse.

Ben Kenobi: That boy is our last hope.

Master Yoda: No, there is another.

Lando Calrissian (to Han): Why, you slimy, double-crossing, no-good swindler. You've got a lot of guts coming here, after what you pulled. (Lando laughs and hugs Han) How you doin', you old pirate? So good to see you!

Luke Skywalker: I can't. It's too big.

Master Yoda: Size matters not. Look at me. Judge me by my size, do you? 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 Skywalker: You want the impossible. (Yoda lifts the ship out of water) I don't... I don't believe it.

Master Yoda: That is why you fail.

Luke Skywalker: Is the dark side stronger?

Master Yoda: No, no. Quicker, easier, more seductive.

Luke Skywalker: How am I to know the good side from the bad?

Master Yoda: You will know... when you are calm, at peace... passive. A Jedi uses the Force for knowledge and defence... never for attack.

Master Yoda: 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.

Master Yoda: 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... what he was doing. Adventure. Excitement. A Jedi craves not these things.
