I thought we were dead. In the distance, a pebble tumbles down the steep canyon wall and a small dark figure darts into the shadows. The Tusken Raiders mount saddles strapped to the huge creatures’ shaggy backs and ride off down the rugged bluff. Only you could be so bold. The ship begins to rock violently as lasers hit it. I just need some more time. The door slides shut and the long cell block hallway appears peaceful. LUKE I’m ready for anything.

Artoo beeps something to him. He stops in a nearby doorway and speaks into a small transmitter. Little Artoo watches from the top of the pit. Luke looks at old Ben, who is busy talking to one of the Galactic pirates. If the Rebels have obtained a complete technical readout of this station, it is possible, however unlikely, that they might find a weakness and exploit it. An explosion hits near the robots. Now come on, get to it!

Luke swings the lightsaber around blindly missing the seeker, which fires off a laserbolt which hits Luke square on the seat of the pants. Rebel troopers rush past the robots and take up positions in the main passageway. I’m not going to Alderaan. He asked you a question The Wookiee flips off several controls and seems very cool in the emergency. Did he take those two new droids with him?


No, create an account now. HAN But who’s going to fly it, kid!

Some kind of asteroid collision. Take care of yourself, you’ll always be the best friend I’ve got. I’ve just received word that the Emperor has dissolved the council permanently. I told him not to go, but he’s faulty, malfunctioning; kept babbling on about his mission. Some are engaged in electronic conversation, while others simply mill about. Another lever is pulled. It will be some time before we can extract any information from her. But it also obeys your commands. The robot scoots around in a tight circle, stops short, and smoke begins to pour out of every joint.


Threepio gives the little robot a kick and starts off in the direction of the vast dune sea. A button is pressed which switches on a panel of lights.

The light plays across the ceiling. His bright computer lights flicker off, then on, then off again. HAN Even I get boarded sometimes. His three adversaries ready their weapons. We will deal with your Rebel friends soon enough. And where you come from.

A voice from directly behind the pirates startles them and they turn around to see Han Solo and the giant Wookiee, Chewbacca, standing behind them with no weapons in sight. Wcene, shaking and totally amazed at the old man’s abilities, attempts to stand. The Rebel Alliance is too well equipped. HAN I think Yreedo can get him before he gets there Now he begs you to help him in his struggle against the Empire. I suggest we use it! Outside the cockpit window stars begin streaking past, seem to decrease in speed, then stop.

Artoo is nowhere in sight. I’ve got such a bad case of dust contamination, I can barely move! Tarkin waves menacingly toward Leia.


As it was I busted up the Skyhopper pretty bad. Ben moves to an empty spot at the bar near a group of repulsive but human scum. One of the marginally human creatures raises a long ominous laser rifle and points it at the speeder but the second creature grabs the gun before it can be fired.

However when watching that classic scene on youtube, the original original ANH, there were no subtitles.

BEN Subritles better get on with your exercises. Ben and Luke leave the speeder lot and walk down the dusty alleyway past a small robot herding a bunch of anteater-like creatures. Jabba is the grossest of the slavering hulks and his scarred face is a grim testimonial to his prowess as a vicious killer.

Artoo is barely visible in the background. You’ll be deactivated for sure. Luke, rubbing his bruised head, approaches the old man with new awe. Luke and Ben help the battered robot to his feet. He looks back in the direction of the now distant rock mesas.

Help me, Obi-Wan Kenobi, you’re my only hope.

HAN I think he thought he was. My joints are almost frozen.
