Ben Kenobi & Vader Duel Scene Lyrics

20th Century Fox Lyrics

DARTH VADER: I've been waiting for you, Obi-Wan. We meet again, at last. The circle is now complete.

Ben Kenobi moves with elegant ease into a cla**ical offensive position. The fearsome Dark Knight takes a defensive stance.

DARTH VADER: When I left you, I was but the learner; now I am the master.

BEN KENOBI: Only a master of evil, Darth.

The two Galactic warriors stand perfectly still for a few moments, sizing each other up and waiting for the right moment. Ben seems to be under increasing pressure and strain, as if an invisible weight were being placed upon him. He shakes his head and, blinking, tries to clear his eyes.

Ben makes a sudden lunge at the huge warrior but is checked by a lightning movement of The Sith. A masterful slash stroke by Vader is blocked by the old Jedi. Another of the Jedi's blows is blocked, then countered. Ben moves around the Dark Lord and starts backing into the ma**ive starship hangar. The two powerful warriors stand motionless for a few moments with laser swords locked in mid-air, creating a low buzzing sound.

DARTH VADER: Your powers are weak, old man.

BEN KENOBI: You can't win, Darth. If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you can possibly imagine.

Their lightsabers continue to meet in combat.

Han Solo and Chewbacca, their weapons in hand, lean back against the wall surveying the forward bay, watching the Imperial stormtroopers make their rounds of the hangar.

HAN SOLO: Didn't we just leave this party?

Chewbacca growls a reply, as Luke and the princess join them.

HAN SOLO: What kept you?

We ran into some old friends.

LUKE SKYWALKER: Is the ship all right?

HAN SOLO: Seems okay, if we can get to it. Just hope the old man got the tractor beam out of commission.

Vader and Ben Kenobi continue their powerful duel. As they hit their lightsabers together, lightning flashes on impact. Troopers look on in interest as the old Jedi and Dark Lord of The Sith fight. Suddenly Luke spots the battle from his group's vantage point.

LUKE: Look!

Luke, Leia, Han, and Chewie look up and see Ben and Vader
emerging from the hallways on the far side of the docking
Threepio and Artoo-Detoo are in the center of the Death Star's
Imperial docking bay.

THREEPIO: Come on, Artoo, we're going!

Threepio ducks out of sight as the seven stormtroopers who
were guarding the starship rush past them heading towards
Ben and The Sith Knight. He pulls on Artoo.

Solo, Chewie, Luke, and Leia tensely watch the duel. The
troops rush toward the battling knights.

HAN SOLO: Now's our chance! Go!

They start for the Millennium Falcon. Ben sees the troops
charging toward him and realizes that he is trapped. Vader
takes advantage of Ben's momentary distraction and brings
his mighty lightsaber down on the old man. Ben manages to
deflect the blow and swiftly turns around.

The old Jedi Knight looks over his shoulder at Luke, lifts
his sword from Vader's then watches his opponent with a serene
look on his face.

Vader brings his sword down, cutting old Ben in half. Ben's
cloak falls to the floor in two parts, but Ben is not in it.
Vader is puzzled at Ben's disappearance and pokes at the
empty cloak. As the guards are distracted, the adventurers
and the robots reach the starship. Luke sees Ben cut in two
and starts for him. Aghast, he yells out.
