Star Wars! A New Hope! But made with a keyboard and emojis! Part 19!
Can: Not a bad bit of rescuing, huh? You know, sometimes I even amaze myself.
Leia: That doesn't sound too hard. Besides, they let us go. It's the only explanation for the ease of our escape.
Can: Easy... you call that easy?
Leia: They’re tracking us.
Can: Not this ship, sister.
Leia: At least the information in Artoo is still intact.
Can: What’s so important about it anyway?
Leia: It has the technical readouts of that battle station. I only hope that when the data is analyzed, a weakness can be found. It's not over yet!
Can: It is for me, sister! Look, I ain't in this for your revolution, and I'm not in it for you, Princess. I expect to be well paid. I'm in it for the money!
Leia: You needn't worry about your reward. If money is all that you love, then that's what you'll receive! Your friend is quite a mercenary Luke. I wonder if he really cares about anything... or anyone.
Luke: I care.

Willard: You're safe! We had feared the worst. When we heard about Alderaan, we were afraid that you were... lost along with your father.
Leia: We don't have time for our sorrows, Commander. The battle station has surely tracked us here. It's the only explanation for the ease of our escape. You must use the information in this R2 unit to plan the attack. It is our only hope.
Willard: We’ll get on it right away.

Tarkin: Yes what is it?
Officer: We are approaching the planet Yavin. The Rebel base is on a moon on the far side. We are preparing to orbit the planet.
Dodonna: The battle station is heavily shielded and carries a firepower greater than half the star fleet. It's defenses are designed around a direct large-scale assault. A small one-man fighter should be able to penetrate the outer defense.
Gold Leader: Pardon me for asking, sir, but what good are snub fighters going to be against that?
Dodonna: Well, the Empire doesn't consider a small one-man fighter to be any threat, or they'd have a tighter defense. An analysis of the plans provided by Princess Leia has demonstrated a weakness in the battle station.
Dodonna: The approach will not be easy. You are required to maneuver straight down this trench and skim the surface to this point. The target area is only two meters wide. It's a small thermal exhaust port, right below the main port. The shaft leads directly to the reactor system. A precise hit will start a chain reaction which should destroy the station. Only a precise hit will set up a chain reaction. The shaft is ray-shielded, so you'll have to use proton torpedoes.
Wedge: That's impossible, even for a computer.
Luke: It's not impossible. I used to bull's-eye womp rats in my T-sixteen back home. They're not much bigger than two meters.
Dodonna: Man your ships! And may the Force be with you.

Rebel: All flight troopers, man your stations. All flight troopers, man your stations.
Luke: So... you got your reward and you're just leaving then?
Can: That's right, yeah! I got some old debts I've got to pay off with this stuff. Even if I didn't, you don't think I'd be fool enough to stick around here, do you? Why don't you come with us? You're pretty good in a fight. I could use you.
Luke: Come on! Why don't you take a look around? You know what's about to happen, what they're up against. They could use a good pilot like you. You're turning your back on them.
Can: What good's a reward if you ain't around to use it? Besides, attacking that battle station ain't my idea of courage. It's more like suicide.
Luke: All right. Well, take care of yourself, Han. I guess that's what you're best at, isn't it?
Can: Hey, Luke... may the Force be with you.
Can: What're you lookin' at? I know what I’m doing.
Leia: What's wrong?
Luke: It’s Han. I really thought he would change his mind.
Leia: He's got to follow his own path. No one can choose it for him.
Biggs: Luke! I don't believe it! How'd you get here... are you going out with us?!
Luke: Biggs! Of course, I'll be up there with you! Listen, have I got some stories to tell.
Red Leader: Are you... Luke Skywalker? Have you been checked out on the Incom T-sixty-five?
Biggs: Sir, Luke is the best bushpilot in the outer rim territories.
Red Leader: I met your father once when I was just a boy, he was a great pilot. You'll do all right. If you've got half of your father's skill, you'll do better than all right.
Luke: Thank you, sir. I'll try.
Biggs: I've got to get aboard. Listen, you'll tell me your stories when we come back. All right?
Luke: I told you I'd make it someday, Biggs.
Biggs: You did, all right. It's going to be like old times, Luke. We're a couple of shooting stars that'll never be stopped!
Technician: This R2 unit of yours seems a bit Beat up. Do you want a new one?
Luke: Not on your life! That little droid and I have been through a lot together.
Technician: Okay, easy she goes!
C3P0: Hang on tight,Artoo, you've got to come back. You wouldn't want my life to get boring, would you?
Dodonna: All fighters prepare for take off!
Obi-Wan: The force will be with you Luke.
