    Heh! Another one:

    ROTS
    ANAKIN-VADER: She was alive! I felt it!

    ANH
    ANAKIN-VADER: Commander, tear this ship apart until you've found those plans, and bring me the passengers! I want them alive!

    The tone is almost the same in those two different lines as well. Well played, JEJ!

    Of course he is actually talking about his wife, and unbeknownst to Vader, his daughter as well in these scenes.

    Something I noticed the other day while watching ANH (though I'm almost certain it's not intentional):

    THREEPIO: Where am I? I must have taken a bad step...
    LUKE: Can you stand? We?ve got to get out of here before the Sandpeople return.
    THREEPIO: I don?t think I can make it. You go on, Master Luke. There?s no sense
    in you risking yourself on my account. I?m done for.

    Artoo makes a beeping sound.
    LUKE: No, you?re not. What kind of talk is that?

    ...and later in ROTJ:

    LUKE Search your feelings, father. You can?t do this. I feel the conflict within you.
    Let go of your hate.
    VADER It is too late for me, son.

    I just found it interesting how both Threepio and Vader implore Luke not to waste time trying to save them as it's too late, they're both done for. Admittedly, Threepio's dilemma is much more light-hearted, but both creator (Vader) and creation (Threepio) face a similar challenge, with the same savior. Both lose a hand too. :p

    Nice catch! But Threepio actually loses an arm -- like Anakin.

    [face_laugh]For the first time I have to say this is a bit of a stretch.

    Sure. I don't think, in and of itself, it's any great shakes, but MissPadme and DarthWolvo have finessed it. It's merely a link; and like any link, it can be commented on, thought about, scorned, praised, rejected, whatever. If it doesn't get your juices flowing, that's fine. Not every last link can or will.

    I think this ROTS quote connects to the ANH quote much better than the ROTJ one you mentioned:

    OBI-WAN: Wait . . . wait . . . I can't see a thing! My cockpit's fogging. They're all over me, Anakin.
    ANAKIN: Move to the right.
    OBI-WAN: Hold on, Anakin. You're going to get us both killed! Get out of here. There's nothing more you can do.

    Nice catch! I kind of focused on the other quotes because both speakers made it a point that it was too late for themselves. Here, Obi-Wan's saying there's nothing more Anakin can do, but not that he's beyond help. But it's an interesting parallel between Luke and his father nonetheless.

    Here's another:

    Anakin: He's overly critical, he never listens, he doesn't understand!

    And then later,

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


    Here, I think, Lucas is illustrating the communication gap between Anakin and Obi-Wan, how they both seem unable to comprehend each other largely because they're unwilling to completely listen to their Master or padawan. So Anakin gets upset when he feels Obi-Wan's unfairly criticizing and Obi-Wan doesn't understand why Anakin is acting out the way he is and gets frustrated.

    SHMI
    You can?t stop change any more than you can stop the suns from setting. Listen to your feelings; Annie, you know what?s right.

    ROTS

    OBI-WAN
    Yes, but use your feelings, Anakin. Something is out of place.


    ESB
    VADER: Search your feelings. You know it to be true.

    ROTJ

    LUKE
    Search your feelings, father. You can't do
    this. I feel the conflict within you. Let go
    of your hate.

    Children being witness to the death of their parents.

    Anakins watched Shmi die

    Boba watched Jango die

    I think in TPM he says "you will never find me on one of those spaceships" too

    Also...Obi Wan in ROTS: "Flying is for droids"

    Nice additions Wolvo.

    Just noticed this...

    TPM-
    PROTOCAL DROID: Excuse me.

    AOTC-
    PADMÉ: Excuse me! I was thinking I would stay in the Lake Country. There are some places up there that are very isolated.
    ANAKIN: Excuse me! I am in charge of security here, M'Lady.

    ROTS-
    DROID: Excuse me.

    TPM-
    SIDIOUS: You have been well trained my young apprentice. They will be no match for you.
    ROTJ-
    SIDIOUS: There is no escape, my young apprentice. The Alliance will die...as will your friends.

    Possibly?

    **************************************************************************************************************************
    ROTS-
    PADME: What is it?
    ANAKIN: Nothing.
    ANH-
    BASE VOICE: Luke, you switched off your targeting computer. What's wrong?
    LUKE: Nothing. I'm all right.

    **************************************************************************************************************************

    ROTS-
    ANAKIN: What's wrong then?
    OBI-WAN: The Senate is expected to vote more executive powers to the Chancellor today.
    ROTJ-
    LEIA: Luke, what's wrong?
    LUKE: Leia... do you remember your mother? Your real mother?

    Here's an ironic one I like...

    AOTC:
    Anakin (to Obi-Wan): I'd much rather dream about Padme. Just being around her again is... intoxicating.

    ROTS:
    Anakin: I found a way to save you.
    Padme: Save me?
    Anakin: From my nightmares.

    Yeah I noticed that one. Also in TPM Shmi says "Now you can make your dreams come true".
    Spooky.

    Yes! And unfortunately for them all, his dreams about Shmi and Padme did come true... spooky indeed.
