Still, she’s got a lot of spirit. I don’t know, what do you think? I want to come with you to Alderaan. There’s nothing for me here now. I want to learn the ways of the Force and be a Jedi, like my father before me. I need your help, Luke. She needs your help. I’m getting too old for this sort of thing. Alderaan?

I call it luck. As you wish. Ye-ha! I can’t get involved! I’ve got work to do! It’s not that I like the Empire, I hate it, but there’s nothing I can do about it right now. It’s such a long way from here. I don’t know what you’re talking about. I am a member of the Imperial Senate on a diplomatic mission to Alderaan
