Yoda: When 900 years old you reach, look as good you will not.

3

Darth Vader: Obi-Wan once thought as you do. You don't know the power of the dark side.

2

Luke Skywalker: Never. I'll never turn to the dark side. You failed, your highness. I am a Jedi, like my father before me.

The Emperor: If you cannot be turned, then you will be destroyed.

Darth Vader: If you will not fight, then you will meet your destiny!

The Emperor: If you will not be turned, then you will be destroyed!

Han Solo: I'm sure Luke wasn't on that thing when it blew.
Leia: He wasn't. I can feel it.
Han Solo: You love him. Don't you?
Leia: Yes.
Han Solo: All right, I understand. Fine. When he comes back, I won't get in the way.
Leia: Oh, Han. It's not like that at all. He's my brother.

Han Solo: I have a bad feeling about this.

Luke Skywalker: You told me Vader betrayed and murdered my father.
Obi-Wan Kenobi: Your father was seduced by the dark side of the force: he ceased to be Anakin Skywalker and became 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.

Darth Vader: You cannot hide forever, Luke.
Luke Skywalker: I will not fight you.
Darth Vader: Give yourself to the Dark Side. It is the only way to save your friends. Yes, your thoughts betray you. Your feelings for them are strong. Especially for...sister. So, you have a twin sister. Your feelings have now betrayed her too. Obi-Wan was wise to hide her from me. Now his failure is complete. If you will not turn to the Dark Side, then perhaps she will.
Luke Skywalker: [ignites lightsaber] NEVER!

Han Solo: I think my eyes are getting better - instead of a big dark blur I see a big light blur.

Trivia: When filming ROTJ, Lucas didn't want anyone to find out that they were shooting the third Star Wars movie, because pandemonium could break out. So when someone asked the crew what they were filming, they said "Blue Harvest". All of the crew had shirts and hats that said Blue Harvest on them. The fictitious film's tagline was "Horror beyond imagination."

More trivia for Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi

Question: Can Jedi and Sith actually read thoughts? In this movie, Vader was able to realize that Luke was thinking about Leia during their fight on the Death Star. If he could read Luke's thoughts, even though Luke is also a powerful Force-user (not a weak-minded person), how come Jedi in the past couldn't detect the thoughts of other strong Force-users? For example, why didn't Mace, Yoda, or other powerful Jedi find out that Anakin was keeping a secret about his marriage to Padme, the way that Luke was keeping a secret about having a twin sister?

Answer: Jedi Knights and Sith can read thoughts using the Force, and they can communicate with each other that way if they wish, but they can also block others from reading their minds. The Jedi are well trained in mind control. Darth Vader was able to read Luke's thoughts because Luke was not yet a fully trained Jedi Knight; he was unable to block Vader's mental intrusion. Anakin was an exceptionally strong Jedi, and even as an apprentice, he possessed very advanced abilities.
