    I would have to say the final duel between Luke and Vader in ROTJ. That gets my heart pumping everytime I see it. Of course, Leia in the bronze bikini is no slouch scene either [​IMG]

    The asteroid sequence in Empire Strikes Back is the best. The music's soo good, plus you get some excellent dialogue in there. Oooh yeah!

    Here are a couple lines that I love:
    #1
    Vader: Obi-Wan is here, the Force is with him.
    Tarkin: If you're right, he must not be allowed to escape.
    Vader: Escape is not his plan. I must face him...alone.
    LOVE that last line!
    -----------------------
    #2
    *IN CARBON-FREEZING CHAMBER*
    Vader: The Force is with you, young Skywalker. But you are not a Jedi yet.

    I think mine would be the entertwining of 3 scenes in ROTJ...

    - The space battle at the deathstar

    - The land battle between the rebels/ewoks and the storm troopers

    - The duel between Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker

    Classic stuff, from which The Phantom Menace drew from.

    I'll also agree with the asteroid sequencein ESB.

    I also love Han's slams on 3PO all during the flick.

    "Hurry up goldenrod, or you're gonna be a permanent resident."

    "Take the professor and plug him into the computer" or something like that.

    Tee-hee-hee.

    The light saber battle in TPM is great, but it doesn't have the same tension in it that the duel between Darth Vader and Luke had in ROTJ.

    I'm partial to the battle on Hoth. Those Imperial walkers are just too cool!

    That's a difficult one...

    But narrowed down to just one, I'd say the space battle at the end of ROTJ... THE best ever!

    "We've got to be able to get some kind of reading on that shield up or down. Well how could they be jamming us if they don't know if....we're coming.....Break off the attack! The sheild is still up."

    "I get no reading, are you sure?"

    "Pull up! All craft pull up!"

    "Take evasive action! Green group stick close to holding sector MV-7."

    "Admiral, we have enemy ships is sector 47!"

    "It's a trap!"

    ---------

    And that started the best space dogfight of all time.

    Also,

    - Twin sunset scene on Tatooine

    - "The force is with you young Skywalker.....but you are not a Jediiiiiiyet"

    - Final lightsaber duel in ROTJ (love the music) and Vader saving Luke (only time the force theme is played for Vader)

    ESB - "Luke, I am your father." (How many times have we heard that line in movies and tv shows?)

    I have to agree with the meteor chase in Empire. I love that scene.

    Favorite funniest not-intended-to-be-funny scene is when:

    In Episode 4...

    Vader says, "I sense something. I presence I've not felt since..."

    and then he quickly turns and runs away.

    Why is this funny: Think "I've got to go to the bathroom."

    Other funny but not-intended-to-be-funny scene is when:

    In Empire...

    Vader is talking about Hoth being the location of the hidden Rebel base and he turns to the Admiral and says, "Admeral Veers (sp?), prepare your men."

    Why is this funny: Yeah, he's one inch from the guys face as if the actor was too close to Vader unbeknownest to Vader." (I think I botched describing this one)

    And who else laughs when Jar Jar gets kicked in the nuggets by the pit droid in Episode 1?
