Quotes 

  • [as Luke leaves before completing his training] 

    Yoda : Told you I did. Reckless is he. Now, matters are worse.

    Obi-Wan : That boy is our last hope.

    Yoda : No. There is another.

  • Yoda : Why wish you become Jedi?

    Luke : Well, mostly because of my father, I guess.

    Yoda : Ahh... father. Powerful Jedi was he. Powerful Jedi.

    Luke : [suspcious]  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 : [Looking away from Luke]  I cannot teach him. The boy has no patience.

    Obi-Wan : [voice-over]  He will learn patience.

    Yoda : Much anger in him... like his father.

    Obi-Wan : [voice]  Was I any different when you taught me?

  • [Yoda tries to convince Luke not to leave] 

    Yoda : You must not go!

    Luke : But Han and Leia will die if I don't.

    [Obi-Wan's Force-spirit suddenly appears] 

    Obi-Wan : You don't know that. Even Yoda cannot see their fate.

    Luke : But I can help them! I feel the Force!

    Obi-Wan : But you cannot control it. This is a dangerous time for you, when you will be tempted by the Dark Side of the Force.

  • Yoda : Stopped they must be; on this all depends. Only a fully trained Jedi Knight, with the Force as his ally, will conquer Vader and his Emperor. If you end your training now - if you choose the quick and easy path as Vader did - you will become an agent of evil.

    Obi-Wan : Patience.

    Luke : And sacrifice Han and Leia?

    Yoda : If you honor what they fight for? Yes.

    Obi-Wan : If you choose to face Vader, you will do it alone. I cannot interfere.

    Luke : I understand. R2? Fire up the converters.

    Obi-Wan : Luke! Don't give in to hate. That leads to the Dark Side.

    Yoda : Strong is Vader. Mind what you have learned. Save you it can.

    Luke : I will. And I'll return, I promise.

  • Yoda : [Luke is preparing his X-Wing fighter for take off]  Luke. You must complete the training.

    Luke : No, I can't keep the vision out of my head. They are my friends; I've got to help them.

    Yoda : You must not go.

    Luke : But, Han and Leia will die if I don't.

    Obi-Wan : You don't know that.

    [Force ghost of Obi-Wan appears] 

    Obi-Wan : Even Yoda cannot see their fate.

    Luke : But, I can help them. I feel the Force.

    Obi-Wan : But, you cannot control it. This is a dangerous time for you. When you will be tempted by the dark side of the force.

    Yoda : Yes! Yes! To Obi Wan, you listen. The cave. Remember your failure with the cave?

    Luke : But I've learnt so much since then. Master Yoda, I promise to return and finish what I've begun. You have my word.

    Obi-Wan : It is you and your abilities the Emperor wants. That is why your friends are made to suffer.

    Luke : That's why I have to go.

    Obi-Wan : Luke. I don't want to lose you to the Emperor, the way I lost Vader.

    Luke : You won't.

    Yoda : Stopped, they must be. On this, all depends. Only a fully trained Jedi Knight, with the Force as his ally, will conquer Vader and his Emperor. If you end your training now, if you choose the quick and easy path as Vader did, you will become an agent of evil.

    Obi-Wan : Patience.

    Luke : And sacrifice Han and Leia?

    Yoda : If you honor what they fight for? Yes!

    Obi-Wan : If you choose to face Vader, you will do it alone. I cannot interfere.

    Luke : I understand.

    [Yoda looks surprised] 

    Luke : R2, fire up the converters.

    [Luke boards his X-Wing fighter] 

    Obi-Wan : Luke! Don't give in to hate. That leads to the dark side.

    Obi-Wan : Strong, is Vader. Mind what you have learned. Save you, it can!

    Luke : I will! And I'll return. I promise!

    [Luke takes off and departs Degobah] 

    Yoda : [Obi-Wan and Yoda watches Luke fly away. Obi-Wan vanishes]  Told you I did. Reckless, is he. Now... matters are worse.

    Obi-Wan : That boy is our last hope.

    Yoda : No. There is another.
