I need your help, Luke. She needs your help. I’m getting too old for this sort of thing. Alderaan? I’m not going to Alderaan. I’ve got to go home. It’s late, I’m in for it as it is. As you wish. Red Five standing by.
There’s no mystical energy field that controls my destiny. It’s all a lot of simple tricks and nonsense. Red Five standing by. Red Five standing by.

The plans you refer to will soon be back in our hands. Any attack made by the Rebels against this station would be a useless gesture, no matter what technical data they’ve obtained. This station is now the ultimate power in the universe. I suggest we use it!
