I'm dying I'm not sure if this really counts as a detail, but these two conversations seem to fit together so nicely. They make Return of the Jedi so, so touching. Were it not for these two conversations, Return of the Jedi wouldn't have as much finality as it does. These quotes were lifted from IMDB. Conversation 1: Luke: Search your feelings, Father, you can't do this. I feel the conflict within you. Let go of your hate. Darth Vader: It is too late for me, son. The Emperor will show you the true nature of the Force. He is your master now. Luke: Then my father is truly dead. I bolded that line because it has always held so much weight for me. It reveals the humanity that still lives in Vader. Everyone always complains about how the PT made Vader a tragic hero instead of an epic villain, but in my opinion it was subtly established here. The delivery of the line by James Earl Jones coupled with the body language by David Prowse make this line come to life. Now we can see that Vader isn't necessarily proud of where he is. He almost sounds regretful. He can't turn back, even if he wanted to. Or so he thinks... Conversation 2: Darth Vader: Luke... help me take this mask off. Luke: But you'll die. Darth Vader: Nothing... can stop that now. Just for once... let me... look on you with my *own* eyes. [Luke takes off Darth Vader's mask one piece at a time. Underneath, Luke sees the face of a pale, scarred, bald-headed, old man - his father, Anakin. Anakin sadly looks at Luke] Anakin: Now... go, my son. Leave me. Luke: No. You're coming with me. I'll not leave you here, I've got to save you. Anakin: You already... have, Luke. You were right. You were right about me. Tell your sister... you were right. [Anakin slumps down in death] Luke: Father... I won't leave you. Vader is saying that Luke was right about the good still being within him. The conflict that Luke was referencing was truly there, and his father redeemed himself (and saved the galaxy in the process). The delivery of those lines are so touching. Vader's final lines could not have been better.
