Until this battle station is fully operational we are vulnerable. The Rebel Alliance is too well equipped. They’re more dangerous than you realize. Dangerous to your starfleet, Commander, not to this battle station! The Rebellion will continue to gain a support in the Imperial Senate as long as…. The Imperial Senate will no longer be of any concern to us. I’ve just received word that the Emperor has dissolved the council permanently. The last remnants of the Old Republic have been swept away. That’s impossible! How will the Emperor maintain control without the bureaucracy? The regional governors now have direct control over territories. Fear will keep the local systems in line. Fear of this battle station.
Let him go! Stay on the leader! Hurry, Luke, they’re coming in much faster this time. I can’t hold them! Artoo, try and increase the power! Hurry up, Luke! Wait! I’m on the leader. Hang on, Artoo! Use the Force, Luke. Let go, Luke. The Force is strong with this one! Luke, trust me. His computer’s off. Luke, you switched off your targeting computer. What’s wrong? Nothing. I’m all right. I’ve lost Artoo! You may fire when ready. I have you now.
Jabba’s through with you. He has no time for smugglers who drop their shipments at the first sign of an Imperial cruiser. Even I get boarded sometimes. Do you think I had a choice? You can tell that to Jabba. He may only take your ship. Over my dead body. That’s the idea. I’ve been looking forward to killing you for a long time. Yes, I’ll bet you have. Sorry about the mess.
