SNOW DRIFT Scene -
BEN: You will go to
the Dagobah system.
LUKE: Dagobah system?
BEN: There you will learn from
Yoda, the Jedi Master who instructed me.
LUKE: Dagobah system...Yoda...
LUKE: (into comlink) We're going to
the Dagobah system.

LUKE: (sighs) Now all I
have to do is find this Yoda... if he even exists.
STRANGE VOICE: Feel like what?
LUKE: jumps out of his skin.
Artoo screeches in terror. The young warrior grabs
for his lightsaber as he spins around, looking for the speaker.
Mysteriously standing right in front of Luke is a strange, bluish creature,
not more than two feet tall. The wizened little thing (Yoda)is dressed in rags.
It motions toward Luke's sword.
LUKE: (looking at the
creature) Like we're being watched!
CREATURE: Away with your weapon! I mean you no harm. I am wondering,
are you here?
LUKE: I'm looking for

LUKE: (Trying to keep from

CREATURE: (teasing) Aww, cannot get your ship out? The creature spots
interest in Luke's case. Luke loses patience and grabs the case away.
The creature retains his prize - a tiny power lamp and examines it with

broken this. Don't do that. Ohhh... you're making a

CREATURE: (retreating with the lamp) Mine! Or I will help you not. With its
creature backs away from Luke, drawing closer to Artoo. As Luke and the
creature argue, one of Artoo's little arms slowly moves out toward the
lamp, completely unnoticed by the creature.
LUKE: I don't want your
help. I want my lamp back. I'll need it to get out of this slimy
CREATURE: Mudhole? Slimy? My home this is. Yoda the creature grabs hold of the lamp
and the two little figures are immediately engaged in a tug-of-war over it.
Artoo beeps a few angry, "Give me thats."
CREATURE: Ah, ah, ah!
LUKE: Oh, Artoo, let him
CREATURE: Mine! Mine!
CREATURE: Mine! The creature lets go with one hand and pokes Artoo lightly with
finger. Artoo reacts with a startled squeal, and lets go.
LUKE: (fed up) Now will
you move along, little fella? We're got a lot of work to do. CREATURE: No! No, no! Stay
and help you, I will. (laughs)Find your friend, hmm?
LUKE: I'm not looking
for a friend. I'm looking for a Jedi Master.
CREATURE: Oohhh. Jedi Master. Yoda. You seek Yoda.
LUKE: You know him?
CREATURE: Mmm. Take you to him, I will. (laughs) Yes, yes.
now, we must eat. Come. Good food. Come!. With that, the
scurries out of the clearing, laughing merrily. Luke stares

distance) Come, come.(Artoo is very upset, whistles a blue streak
LUKE: Stay here and

But as Luke disappears from view, the worried little droid

DAGOBAH - CREATURE'S HOUSE - NIGHT
There is a heavy downpour of rain pounding through the gnarled trees. A strange
mud house sits on a moss-covered knoll on the edge of a small lagoon. The small, gnomish
structure radiates a warm glow from its thick glass windows. As rain tap-dances a merry
tune on Artoo's head, the stubby little droid rises up on his tip-toes to peek into one of
Artoo, peeking in the window, sees the inside of the house - a very plain, but
Everything is in the same small scale as the creature. The only thing out of place in the
miniature room is Luke, whose height makes the four-foot ceiling seem even lower. He sits
cross-legged on the floor of the living room. Creature is in an adjoining area - his
kitchen - cooking up an incredible meal. The stove is a steaming hodgepodge of pots and
pans. The wizened little host scurries about chopping this, shredding that, and showering
everything with exotic herbs and spices. He rushes back and forth putting platters on the
table in front of Luke, who watches the creature impatiently.
I'm sure it's delicious. I just don't understand why we can't see
CREATURE: Patience! For the Jedi it is time to eat as well. Eat, eat. Hot. Good food, hm?
Good, hmm? with some difficulty in the cramped quarters, Luke sits down
the fire and serves himself from the pot. Tasting the unfamiliar
he is pleasantly surprised.
LUKE: How far away is
Yoda? Will it take us long to get there?
CREATURE: Not far. Yoda not far. Patience. Soon you will be with him. (tasting food
the pot) Rootleaf, I cook. Why wish you become Jedi? Hm?
LUKE: Mostly because of
my father, I guess.
CREATURE: Ah, your father. Powerful Jedi was he, powerful Jedi, mmm.
LUKE: (a little angry)
Oh, come on. How could you know my father?
You don't even know who I am. (fed up) Oh, I don't know what I'm doing here.
We're wasting our time. creature turns away from Luke and speaks to a third
party, Obi-Wan's Ghost.(Ben)
CREATURE: (irritated) I cannot teach him. The boy has no patience. Luke's head spins in
the direction the creature faces. But there is no one there. The boy is
but it gradually dawns on him that the little creature is Yoda,
Jedi Master, and that he is speaking with Ben.
BEN'S VOICE: He will learn patience.
YODA: Hmmm. Much anger
in him, like his father.
BEN'S VOICE: Was I any different when you taught me?
YODA: Hah. He is not
LUKE: Yoda! I am ready.
I... Ben! I can be a Jedi. Ben, tell him I'm ready. Wanting
to see Ben, Luke starts to get up but hits his head on the low ceiling.
YODA: Ready, are you?
What know you of ready? For eight hundred years have I

A Jedi must have the deepest commitment, the most serious mind.

This one a long time have I watched. All his life has he looked away...to the
future, to the horizon. Never his mind on where he was. Hmm? What he was

DAGOBAH - DAY
Yoda strapped to his back, Luke climbs up one of the many thick vines that grow
in the swamp. Panting heavily, he continues his course - climbing, flipping through the
jumping over roots, and racing in and out of the heavy ground fog.
Yes. A Jedi's strength flows from the Force. But beware of the
side. Anger... fear...aggression. The dark side are they. Easily

Vader. Is the dark side stronger?
No... no... no. Quicker, easier, more seductive.
But how am I to know the good side from the bad?
You will know. When you are calm, at peace. Passive. A Jedi uses
Force for knowledge and defense, never for attack.
But tell me why I can't...
(interrupting) No, no, there is no why. Nothing more will I teach you today.
Clear your mind of questions. Mmm. Mmmmmmmm.

Luke takes his shirt from a nearby tree branch and pulls it on. turns to see a huge,
dead, black tree, its base surrounded by a few feet of water. Giant, twisted roots form a

from his shoulders as his body disappears into the darkness. The metallic
banging of the helmet fills the cave as Vader's head spins and bounces,
smashes on the floor, and finally stops. For an instant it rests on the floor,
then it cracks vertically. The black helmet and breath mask fall away

Quickly, Luke lifts one hand from the ground. His body wavers, but he maintains

under the strain.

Yoda turns toward the X-wing fighter. With his eyes closed and his head bowed,
his arm and points at the ship., the fighter rises above the water and moves forward as
Artoo beeps in terror and scoots away. The entire X-wing moves majestically, surely,
toward the shore. Yoda stands on a tree root and guides the fighter carefully down toward

walks toward Yoda).

That is why you fail.

You must not go!
But Han and Leia will die if I don't.
BEN'S VOICE: You don't know that.
Luke looks toward the voice in amazement. Ben has materialized as a real,
shimmering image near Yoda. The power of his presence stops Luke.
Even Yoda cannot see their fate.
But I can help them! I feel the Force!
But you cannot control it. This is a dangerous time for you, when you
will be tempted by the dark side of the Force.
Yes, yes. To Obi-Wan you listen. The cave. Remember your failure

Luke is at the controls, with Artoo attached behind him

Luke in agony, is silent for a long moment, screwing up his courage.
Finally he is able to ask.
Master Yoda... is Darth Vader my father?
Yoda's eyes are full of weariness and compassion. An odd, sad smile creases his
He turns painfully on his side, away from Luke.
Mmm... rest I need. Yes... rest.
(Luke watches him, each moment an eternity). Yoda, I must know.
Your father he is.

(new look of concern crosses Yoda's face. He closes his eyes).

Yoda catches his breath. A shiver runs through the ancient green creature, and
Luke stares at his dead master as he disappears in front of his eyes.
EXT DAGOBAH SWAMP - X-WING
Luke wanders back to where his ship is sitting. Artoo beeps a greeting, but is
ignored by his
depressed master. Luke kneels down, begins to help Artoo with the ship, then stops and
shakes his head dejectedly.
I can't do it, Artoo. I can't go on alone.
Yoda will always be with you.
Luke looks up to see the shimmering image of BEN KENOBI.
Obi-Wan! Why didn't you tell me?
The ghost of Ben Kenobi approaches him through the swamp.
You told me Vader betrayed and murdered my father.
You father was seduced by the dark side of the Force. He ceased
to be Anakin Skywalker and became Darth Vader. When that
happened, the good man who was your father was destroyed.
So what I have told you was true... from a certain point of view.
(turning away, derisive) A certain point of view!
Luke, you're going to find that many of the truths we cling to
depend greatly on our own point of view.
Luke is unresponsive. Ben studies him in silence for a moment.
I don't blame you for being angry. If I was wrong in what I did,
it certainly wouldn't have been for the first time. You see,
what happened to your father was my fault. Ben pauses sadly.
Anakin was a good friend.
Luke turns with interest at this. As Ben speaks, Luke settles on a stump,
Artoo comes over to offer his comforting presence.
When I first knew him, your father was already a great pilot.
But I was amazed how strongly the Force was with him. I took
it upon myself to train him as a Jedi. I thought that I could instruct
him just as well as Yoda. I was wrong. My pride has had terrible
consequences for the galaxy.
Luke is entranced.
still good in him.
I also thought he could be turned back to the good side. It couldn't
be done. He is more machine now than man. Twisted and evil.
I can't do it, Ben.
You cannot escape your destiny.
I tried to stop him once. I couldn't do it.
Vader humbled you when first you met him, Luke...but that
experience was part of your training. It taught you, among other
things, the value of patience. Had you not been so impatient to
Vader then, you could have finished your training here
You would have been prepared.
But I had to help my friends.

who had to save you. You achieved little by rushing back

To be a Jedi, Luke, you must confront and then go beyond the dark

I can't kill my own father.

Yoda spoke of another.
The other he spoke of is your twin sister.
But I have no sister.

Owen on Tatooine... and your mother took Leia to live

Luke turns, and settles near Ben to hear the tale.
(attempting to give solace with his words) The Organa household
was high-born and politically quite powerful in that system. Leia
became a princess by virtue of lineage... no one knew she'd been
adopted, of course. But it was a title without real power, since
Alderaan had long been a democracy. Even so, the family
