Obi-Wan Quotes in Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977)


Obi-Wan Quotes:

  • Obi-Wan: I felt a great disturbance in the Force, as if millions of voices suddenly cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced. I fear something terrible has happened.

  • Han Solo: Stay sharp. There's two more coming in. They're gonna try and cut us off.

    Luke: Why don't you outrun them? I thought you said this thing was fast!

    Han Solo: Watch your mouth, kid, or you're gonna find yourself floating home! We'll be safe enough once we make the jump to hyperspace. Besides, I know a few maneuvers. We'll lose 'em.

    [the ship shudders as an explosion flashes outside the window]

    Han Solo: Here's where the fun begins.

    Obi-Wan: How long before you can make the jump to light speed?

    Han Solo: It'll take a few moments to get the coordinates from the navi-computer.

    [the ship begins to rock violently as lasers hit it]

    Luke: Are you kidding? At the rate they're gaining...?

    Han Solo: Traveling through hyperspace ain't like dusting crops, boy! Without precise calculations we could fly right through a star, or bounce too close to a supernova and that'd end your trip real quick, wouldn't it.

    Luke: [notices a flashing light] ... What's that flashing?

    Han Solo: [slaps Luke's hand away] We're losing a deflector shield. Go strap yourselves in. I'm going to make the jump to light speed.

    [And so they do]

  • Obi-Wan: You must do what you think is right, of course.

  • Obi-Wan: But Master Yoda says I should be mindful of the future.

    Qui-Gon Jinn: But not at the expense of the moment.

  • Obi-Wan: Why do I get the feeling that we've picked up another pathetic life form?

  • Obi-Wan: The boy is dangerous. They all sense it, why can't you?

  • Qui-Gon Jinn: [mumbles, as Obi-Wan sits him up after battle with Darth Maul] Uhh, it's too late, it...

    Obi-Wan: No!

    Qui-Gon Jinn: Obi-Wan, promise... Promise me you will train the boy.

    Obi-Wan: Yes, master.

    Qui-Gon Jinn: [wiping a tear from Obi-Wan's right cheek] He is the chosen one. He will bring balance. Train him.

    [nods, cries over Qui-Gon Jinn's body]

  • Jar-Jar Binks: Dis is nutsen

    [looks out window]

    Jar-Jar Binks: Oh Gooberfish

    Obi-Wan: Why were you banished Jar-Jar?

    Jar-Jar Binks: It's a longo taleo buta small part of it would be mesa... clumsy

    Obi-Wan: You were banished because you were clumsy?

    Jar-Jar Binks: Yousa might'n be sayin dat

  • [regarding returning to Otoh Gunga]

    Jar Jar Binks: My forgotten, da Bosses will do terrible tings to me TERRRRRIBLE is me going back der!

    Qui-Gon Jinn: Do you hear that?

    [a rumbling is heard in the distance]

    Jar Jar Binks: Yeah.

    Qui-Gon Jinn: That is the sound of a thousand terrible things headed this way.

    Obi-Wan: If they find us, they will crush us, grind us into TINY pieces and BLAST us into oblivion!

    Jar Jar Binks: Hmmm... yousa point is well seen.

  • Obi-Wan: The council has granted me permission to train you. You will be a Jedi, I promise.

  • Obi-Wan: You were right about one thing, master. The negotiations were short.

  • Obi-Wan: We haven't much time.

  • Obi-Wan: You were banished because you were clumsy?

  • Obi-Wan: Do not defy the council, Master, not again.

    Qui-Gon Jinn: I shall do what I must, Obi-Wan.

  • Obi-Wan: I have a bad feeling about this.

    Qui-Gon Jinn: I don't sense anything.

    Obi-Wan: It's not about the mission, Master. It's something... elsewhere. Elusive.

  • Obi-Wan: Once those droids take control of the surface, they will take control of you.

  • Luke: [approaching R2-D2] I can't do it, R2. I can't go on alone.

    Obi-Wan: [from out of sight] Yoda and I will always be with you.

    Luke: Obi-Wan.

    [Obi-Wan's spirit approaches Luke]

    Luke: Ben! Why didn't you tell me? You told me that Darth Vader betrayed and murdered my father.

    Obi-Wan: Your father... was seduced by the Dark Side of the Force. He ceased to be the Jedi Anakin Skywalker and "became" the Sith Darth Vader. When that happened, the good man who was your father was destroyed. So, what I told you was true... from a certain point of view.

    Luke: A certain point of view?

    Obi-Wan: Luke, you're going to find that many of the truths we cling to depend greatly on our own point of view. Anakin was a good friend. When I first met him, your father was already a great pilot. But I was amazed how strongly the Force was with him. I took it upon myself to train him as a Jedi. I thought that I could instruct him just as well as Yoda. I was wrong.

    Luke: There is still good in him.

    Obi-Wan: He's more machine now than man. Twisted and evil.

    Luke: I can't do it, Ben.

    Obi-Wan: You cannot escape your destiny. You must face Darth Vader again.

    Luke: I can't kill my own father.

    Obi-Wan: Then the Emperor has already won. You were our only hope.

    Luke: Yoda spoke of another.

    Obi-Wan: The other he spoke of is your twin sister.

    Luke: But I have no sister.

    Obi-Wan: Hmm. To protect you both from the Emperor, you were hidden from your father when you were born. The Emperor knew, as I did, if Anakin were to have any offspring, they would be a threat to him. That is the reason why your sister remains safely anonymous.

    Luke: Leia! Leia is my sister.

    Obi-Wan: Your insight serves you well. Bury your feelings deep down, Luke. They do you credit, but they could be made to serve the Emperor.

  • Obi-Wan: You were the chosen one! It was said that you would destroy the Sith, not join them! Bring balance to the force... not leave it in darkness!

    Anakin Skywalker: [shouts] I HATE YOU!

    Obi-Wan: You were my brother, Anakin! I loved you!

  • Obi-Wan: It's over Anakin, I have the high ground.

    Anakin Skywalker: You underestimate my power!

    Obi-Wan: Don't try it.

  • [Padme is in the medical center]

    GH-7 Medical Droid: Medically, she is completely healthy. For reasons we can't explain, we are losing her.

    Obi-Wan: She's dying?

    GH-7 Medical Droid: We don't know why. She has lost the will to live. We need to operate quickly if we are to save the babies.

    Senator Bail Organa: Babies?

    GH-7 Medical Droid: She's carrying twins.

  • Obi-Wan: Now, let's get a move on. We've got a battle to win here.

    Commander Cody: Yes, sir.

    [Obi-Wan and his lizard ride off. Commander Cody stops and opens his comlink, revealing the hologram of Darth Sidious]

    Darth Sidious: Commander Cody, the time has come. Execute Order 66.

    Commander Cody: Yes, my Lord.

    [the comlink is shut. Cody gestures towards Obi-Wan]

    Commander Cody: Blast him!

  • [R2-D2 tries repeatedly to control an elevator that Anakin and Obi-Wan are in while avoiding battle droids at the same time]

    Anakin Skywalker: What was that all about?

    Obi-Wan: Well, R2 has been...

    Anakin Skywalker: No loose wire jokes.

    Obi-Wan: Did I say anything?

    Anakin Skywalker: He's trying.

    Obi-Wan: I didn't say anything.

  • Obi-Wan: I have failed you, Anakin. I have failed you.

    Anakin Skywalker: I should have known the Jedi were plotting to take over!

    Obi-Wan: Anakin, Chancellor Palpatine is evil!

    Anakin Skywalker: From my point of view, the Jedi are evil!

    Obi-Wan: Well, then you are lost!

    Anakin Skywalker: [raises his lightsaber] This is the end for you, my master.

  • Obi-Wan: [after Anakin crash-lands The Invisible Hand onto a landing platform] Another happy landing.

  • [a large part of Greivous's ship breaks away]

    R2-D2: [beeps] Uh-oh.

    Anakin Skywalker: We lost something.

    Obi-Wan: Not to worry. We're still flying half a ship.

  • Obi-Wan: [jumps down to Grievous] Hello, there.

    [sees he is surrounded by hundreds of battle droids]

  • Obi-Wan: Flying is for droids.

  • Obi-Wan: Anakin, let's be fair. Today you were the hero and you deserve your glorious day with the politicians.

    Anakin Skywalker: All right. But you owe me one, and for not saving your skin for the tenth time.

    Obi-Wan: *Ninth* time. That business on Cato Neimodia doesn't- doesn't count.

  • Tion Medon: Greetings, young Jedi. What brings you to our remote sanctuary?

    Obi-Wan: Unfortunately, the war.

    Tion Medon: There is no war here unless you've brought it with you.

    Obi-Wan: With your kind permission, I should like some fuel and to use your city as a base as I search nearby systems for General Grievous.

    Tion Medon: [Tion Medon signals a ground crew to refuel Obi Wan's ship and moves closer] He is here. We are being held hostage. They are watching us.

    Obi-Wan: I understand.

    Tion Medon: The tenth level... thousands of Battle Droids...

    Obi-Wan: Tell your people to take shelter. If you have warriors, now is the time.

  • [about Anakin]

    Obi-Wan: Always on the move.

  • Obi-Wan: [crashing towards the hangar] Oh, I have a bad feeling about this.

  • Anakin Skywalker: Ray shields.

    Obi-Wan: Wait a minute. How did this happen? We're smarter than this.

    Anakin Skywalker: Apparently not. I say patience.

    Obi-Wan: Patience?

    Anakin Skywalker: Yes. R2 will be along in a few moments and then... he'll release us from the ray shields.

    [R2 comes skidding across the hallway and bashes into the opposite wall]

    Anakin Skywalker: See? No problem.

  • [Obi-Wan Kenobi and Yoda are escaping the Jedi temple as Obi-Wan noticed the hologram center]

    Obi-Wan: Wait, Master. There is something I must know.

    Yoda: If into the security recordings you go, only pain will you find.

    Obi-Wan: I must know the truth, Master.

    [Obi-Wan watches the recordings of Jedi, even younglings, being slaughtered]

    Obi-Wan: It can't be... It can't be...

    Anakin Skywalker: The traitors have been taken care of, Lord Sidious.

    Darth Sidious: Good... Good... you have done well, my apprentice. Now Lord Vader, go and bring peace to the Empire.

    Obi-Wan: [switches off the hologram] I can't watch any more.

    Yoda: Destroy the Sith we must.

  • Obi-Wan: Not even the younglings survived.

  • [first lines]

    [R2-D2 bleeps]

    Anakin Skywalker: Lock on to him R2.

    [R2-D2 responds with more bleeping]

    Anakin Skywalker: Master, General Grievous's ship is directly ahead. The one crawling with Vulture droids.

    Obi-Wan: Oh, I see it. Oh, this is going to be easy.

  • Obi-Wan: Very well. The burden is on me not to destroy all the droids before you get there.

  • Obi-Wan: [General Grievous' ship is about to crash land] Can you fly a cruiser like this?

    Anakin Skywalker: You mean, do I know how to land what's left of this thing?

  • [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: I can't get the vision out of my head. They are my friends and I 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. Where 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 abilites The Emperor wants. That is why your friends were 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: Stop they must be, on this it all depends. Only a fully trained Jedi knight with the force as his allie 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 interfeare.

    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.

  • Obi-Wan: Why do I get the feeling you're going to be the death of me?

    Anakin: Don't say that, master. You're the closest thing I have to a father.

  • [last lines]

    Obi-Wan: I have to admit that without the clones, it would have not been a victory.

    Yoda: Victory? Victory you say? Master Obi-Wan, not victory. The shroud of the dark side has fallen. Begun the Clone War has.

  • Count Dooku: What if I told you that the Republic was now under the control of a dark lord of the Sith?

    Obi-Wan: No, that's not possible. The Jedi would sense it.

    Count Dooku: The Dark Side has clouded their vision. Hundreds of senators are now under the influence of a Sith lord called Darth Sidious.

    Obi-Wan: I don't believe you.

  • Obi-Wan: What took you so long?

    Anakin: Well, you know, Master, I couldn't find a speeder that I really liked...

    Obi-Wan: There he is.

    Anakin: ...with an open cockpit and the right speed capabilities.

    Obi-Wan: If you spent as much time practicing your saber techniques as you did your wit, you'd rival Master Yoda as a swordsman.

    Anakin: I thought I already did.

    Obi-Wan: Only in your mind, my very young apprentice.

  • Yoda: [Yoda is training children to be Jedi at the Jedi Temple. Obi-Wan comes in and explains he's looking for a planet] Mmm. Lost a planet, Master Obi-Wan has. How embarrassing. How embarrassing. Find it, we will try.

    Obi-Wan: [Pointing to a spot in the star hologram] This is where it ought to be, but it isn't. Gravity is pulling all the stars in this area inward to this spot. There should be a star here, but there isn't.

    Yoda: Most interesting. Gravity's silhouette remains, but the star and all its planets have disappeared. How can this be?

    J.K. Burtola: [One of the children raises his hand] Because someone erased it from the archive memory.

    Jedi Bear Clan: [All of the children] That's right! Yes! That's what happened! Someone erased it!

    Mari Amithest: If the planet blew up, the gravity would go away.

    Yoda: Truly wonderful, the mind of a child is. Uncluttered. To the center of the pull of gravity go, and find your planet you will.

    Obi-Wan: But Master Yoda, who could have erased information from the archives? That's impossible, isn't it?

    Yoda: [Frowning] Much harder to answer, that question is.

  • [while pursuing Count Dooku, a laserblast knocks Padme out of the gunship]

    Anakin: PADME!

    [to pilot]

    Anakin: Put the ship down!

    Obi-Wan: Anakin! Don't let your personal feelings get in the way!

    [to pilot]

    Obi-Wan: Follow that speeder.

    Anakin: Lower the ship!

    Obi-Wan: I can't take Dooku alone! I need you! If we catch him, we can end this war right now! We have a job to do!

    Anakin: I don't care! Put the ship down!

    Obi-Wan: You will be expelled from the Jedi order!

    Anakin: I CAN'T LEAVE HER!

    Obi-Wan: COME TO YOUR SENSES! What do you think Padme would do were she in your position?

    Anakin: [pause] She would do her duty.

  • Anakin: You're going to pay for all the Jedi that you killed today, Dooku.

    Obi-Wan: We'll take him together. You go in slowly on the left...

    Anakin: No, I'm taking him NOW!

    Obi-Wan: No Anakin, NO!

  • Yoda: The council is confident in its decision, Obi-Wan.

    Mace Windu: The boy has exceptional skills.

    Obi-Wan: But he still has much to learn, Master. His abilities have made him... well arrogant.

    Yoda: Yes. Yes. A flaw more and more common among Jedi. Too sure of themselves they are. Even the older, more experienced ones.

  • Anakin: If you'll excuse me Master.

    [Anakin jumps out of the speeder]

    Obi-Wan: I hate it when he does that.

  • Obi-Wan: [returning Anakin's lightsaber] This weapon is your life.

  • Anakin: You're the closest thing I have to a father.

    Obi-Wan: Then why don't you listen to me?

  • Obi-Wan: Just relax, concentrate.

    Anakin: What about Padme?

    Obi-Wan: She seems to be on top of things.

  • Elan Sleazebaggano: You wanna buy some death sticks?

    Obi-Wan: [using a Jedi Mind Trick] You don't want to sell me death sticks.

    Elan Sleazebaggano: Uh, I don't want to sell you death sticks.

    Obi-Wan: You want to go home and rethink your life.

    Elan Sleazebaggano: I want to go home and rethink my life.

  • Obi-Wan: I was beginning to wonder if you'd got my message.

    Anakin: I retransmitted it to Coruscant, just as you'd requested, Master. Then we decided to come and rescue you.

    Obi-Wan: [looks at his handcuffed hands] Good job.

  • [In the speeder, while chasing the assassin]

    Obi-Wan: You know I don't like it when you do that.

    Anakin: Sorry, master. I forgot that you don't like flying.

    Obi-Wan: I don't mind flying, but what you're doing is suicide.

  • Obi-Wan: Anakin, may the force be with you.

    Anakin: May the force be with you, Master.

  • Anakin: She went into the club, master.

    Obi-Wan: Patience. Use the force. Think.

  • [to Obi-Wan]

    Count Dooku: As you can see, my Jedi powers are far beyond yours. Now, back down.

    [shoots Sith lighting at Obi-Wan who blocks it with his lightsaber]

    Obi-Wan: I don't think so.

  • Count Dooku: You must join me, Obi-Wan, and together we will destroy the Sith!

    Obi-Wan: I will never join you.

  • Obi-Wan: These Kaminos, are they friendly?

    Dexter Jettster: That depends.

    Obi-Wan: Depends on what Dex?

    Dexter Jettster: On how well your manners are, and how big your pocketbook is.

  • Obi-Wan: I hope he doesn't try anything foolish.

    Captain Typho: I'd be more concerned about *her* doing something than him.

  • Obi-Wan: Be mindful of your thoughts Anakin. They'll betray you.

  • Obi-Wan: Anakin, how many times have I told you to stay away from the power couplings.

  • Count Dooku: May I ask why a Jedi Knight is all the way out here on Geonosis?

    Obi-Wan: I'm tracking a bounty hunter named Jango Fett. Do you know him?

    Count Dooku: There are no bounty hunters here that I am aware of. The Geonosians don't trust them.

  • [as he realizes the man he just pushed off a building is still attached to him]

    Obi-Wan: Oh, not good.

  • Obi-Wan: Well that's Anakin's tracking signal, all right. But it's coming from Tatooine. What the blazes is he doing there? I told him to stay on Naboo.

  • Dexter Jettster: This baby belongs to them cloners. What you got here is a Kamino Saberdart.

    Obi-Wan: I wonder why it didn't show up in the analysis archives.

    Dexter Jettster: It's these funny little cuts on the side that give it away. Those analysis droids only focus on symbols. Huh! I should think that you Jedi would have more respect for the difference between knowledge and... heh heh heh... wisdom.

    Obi-Wan: Well if droids could think, there'd be none of us here, would there?

  • Obi-Wan: Ever make your way as far into the interior as Coruscant?

    Jango Fett: Once or twice.

    Obi-Wan: Recently?

    Jango Fett: Possibly.

  • Obi-Wan: Your clones are very impressive. You must be very proud.

  • Obi-Wan: You have made a commitment to the Jedi order, a commitment not easily broken.

  • Obi-Wan: Where are you going? He went that way!

    Anakin: Master, if we keep this chase going any longer that creep is gonna end up deep fried. And personally, I'd very much like to find out who he is, and who he's working for. This is a short cut... I think.

    Obi-Wan: Well, you've lost him!

  • Obi-Wan: Anakin, don't do anything without consulting either myself or the Council.

  • Anakin: I've heard this lesson before.

    Obi-Wan: You haven't learned anything, Anakin.

  • Obi-Wan: Blast. This is why I hate flying.

  • Obi-Wan: They are using a bounty hunter named Jango Fett to create a clone army.

  • Count Dooku: Geonosians don't trust bounty hunters.

    Obi-Wan: Well, who can blame them?

  • Obi-Wan: You're sweating.

  • Obi-Wan: I will never join you, Dooku.

    Count Dooku: It may be difficult to secure your release.

  • Obi-Wan: And don't forget, she's a politician, and they're *not* to be trusted.

  • Obi-Wan: Do you believe what Dooku said about this 'Darth Sidious' controlling the senate? It doesn't feel right.

    Yoda: Joined the Dark Side Dooku has. Lies, deceit, creating mistrust are his ways now.

  • Obi-Wan: You look tired.

    Anakin: I haven't had much sleep of late.

    Obi-Wan: Because of your mother?

    [Anakin nods]

    Obi-Wan: ...Dreams pass in time.

  • Obi-Wan: It's a great pleasure to see you again, milady.

    Padme: It has been far too long, Master Kenobi. Ani? My goodness you've grown.

    Anakin: So have you. Grown more beautiful, I mean. Well, for a Senator I mean.

  • Anakin Skywalker: [as he and Obi-Wan come running to Count Dooku] You're gonna pay for all the Jedi that you killed today, Dooku.

    Obi-Wan: We'll take him together.

    Anakin Skywalker: You go slowly while I take him now!

    [runs toward Dooku]

    Obi-Wan: No! Anakin, no! No!

    [Dooku electrifies Anakin with his hands]

    Count Dooku: [to Obi-Wan] as you see, my Jedi powers are far beyond yours. Now, back up.

    [tries to electrify Obi-Wan, who blocks the electricity with his lightsaber]

    Obi-Wan: I don't think so.

    [Dooku ignites lightsaber and fights]

    Count Dooku: Master Kenobi, you disappoint me. Yoda holds you in such high steam.

    [fights more]

    Count Dooku: Surely you can do better!

  • Obi-Wan: [Jocasta Nu asks Obi-Wan if he's having a problem] Yes, I'm trying to find a planet system called Kamino. It doesn't seem to show upon any of the archive charts.

    Madame Jocasta Nu: Kamino? It's not a system I'm familiar with. Let me see.

    Madame Jocasta Nu: Are you sure you have the right co-ordinates?

    Obi-Wan: According to my information, it should be in this quadrant somewhere, just south of the Rishi Maze.

    Madame Jocasta Nu: No co-ordinates? It sounds like the kind of directions you'd get from a street tout, some old miner or Furbog trader.

    Obi-Wan: All three actually.

    Madame Jocasta Nu: Are you sure it exists?

    Obi-Wan: Absolutely.

    Madame Jocasta Nu: Let me do a gravitational scan.

    [They study the star hologram]

    Madame Jocasta Nu: There are some inconsistencies here. Maybe the planet you're looking for was destroyed.

    Obi-Wan: Wouldn't that be on record?

    Madame Jocasta Nu: It ought to be. Unless it was very recent.

    [She shakes her head]

    Madame Jocasta Nu: I hate to say it, but it looks like the system you're searching for doesn't exist.

    Obi-Wan: That's impossible. Perhaps the archives are incomplete.

    Madame Jocasta Nu: The archives are comprehensive and totally secure, my young Jedi. One thing you may be absolutely sure of - if an item does not appear in our records, it does not exist!
