The Force Runs Strong in my Family

If I don't make it back, you're the only hope for the Alliance.

Princess Leia: 
Luke, don't talk that way. 
You have a power I don't understand and could never have.

You're wrong, Leia. 
You have that power too. 
In time you'll learn to use it as I have. 
The Force runs strong in my family. 

My father has it. I have it. And... my sister has it. Yes. It's you, Leia.

Princess Leia: 
I know. Somehow, I've always known.

Luke Skywalker: 
I can't do it, Ben.

You cannot escape your destiny. 
You must face Darth Vader again.

Hang on - why, actually...?
I mean sure, for closure's sake, for the boy's mental health and hygine
- which actually is a good enough reason by itself, although it shouldn't be -

With this many lives on The Line, with the fate of the entire Galaxy, Freedom, Liberty, Egalite and The Brotherhood at stake :

Why can't somebody with a low pressence in The Force, who isn't related to him lure Vader onto The Death Star 
(since they already know that The Emperor is going to be there)

And just blow it up - as happens anyway.

 Ah - it only happens that way
Because it Was Meant to.

You cannot...


Orson Welles' Last Words,

Transformers : The Movie (1986)

[ Orson plays the part of The Death Star in that movie - it's really  very moving. ]

Luke Skywalker: 
I can't kill my own father.

That's what I said...!

What's Truly appalling here is that apparently Ben fully expects him to do so -

Okay, Ben - Lie to Me :

Then the Emperor has already won. 
You were our only hope.

Tell The Truth
Tell The Truth

...or at least, Don't Lie.

Luke Skywalker: 
Yoda spoke of another.

The other he spoke of is your twin sister.

The Hearth.

Luke Skywalker: 
But I have no sister.

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 Skywalker: 
Leia! Leia is my sister.

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

Darth Vader: 
You cannot hide forever, Luke.

Luke Skywalker: 
I will not fight you.
[ ...for Me. ]

Here we are again :
So, Guess What...?


Your Father Already Knows This -
But You Don't. Yet.

You're About to Know it.

And Your Father is Going to Teach You This
Starting From -

Darth Vader: 
Give yourself to the Dark Side. 

Anakin is a Very Generous and completely Self-less Individual.

That's Precisely Why He Killed Himself (Basically) 
to try to Keep His Wife Alive and Allow His Son to be Born.

As the Jewish Fight Promoter says in Rocky VI:
"Hey, It's Good to Give."

Giving and Charity are not exactly synonymous - 
and Especially Within Judaic Rabbinical Tradition

So Jews will sometimes often speak of 

Which is Always and Specifically Monetary -

In the Jewish Tradition, Monetary Giving is 

(Alms, basically - but with certain conditions and strings attatched (actually literally, originally))

The Phrase 
"(No) Strings Attached"

was, in fact, originally a reference to the Talit


It is the only way you can 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: 
[igniting light saber, screams]
