    Jabba the Hutt tells Bib Fortuna: I told you not to admit him( paraphrasing) . How did Jabba know Luke was on his way to save his companions?

    He would have little birds everywhere, with communication devices. I am guessing that is how he would know. Maybe Luke didn't care about being seen landing his ship and all.

    Luke (in his hologram message to Jabba): "I seek an audience with Your Greatness to bargain for Solo’s life." Which is followed by a veiled threat of: "...enable us to avoid any unpleasant confrontations."

    Jabba knew Luke was coming because Luke told him so in the message :)

    What Angelman said above me.

    Also, at this point in time everybody in the galaxy knew Luke, Leia and Han as a team. I believe Jabba knew it was only a matter of time before Luke showed up on his doorstep, looking for his best friend.

    I love the idea that Fortuna was expected to say: "Sorry, Skywalker, I'm not allowed to let you in..." and Luke would just turn around and walk away...

    I think he anticipated that Luke set up the trap by using his droids, threepion and R2. Something along those lines, so yeah, anticipation!

    I love that the same crack security team that let some rando walk right up to Jabba with a concealed bomb, was expected to keep anyone out at all :D

    LUKE: Hello there. Can I see Jabba please?

    SCROTUM-BOT: Maybe. You’re not Luke Skywalker are you?

    LUKE: What? Me? No. No no no no. No, I’m . . . uh, I’m . . . Duke. Yeah - I’m Duke, um . . . Air . . . Strutter.

    SCROTUM-BOT: Duke . . . Airstrutter?

    LUKE: Eeeeyep.

    SCROTUM-BOT: . . . . . . oh, what a relief. Sorry man, I’m just on pretty thin ice right now after letting some Wookiee wrangling weirdo with a grenade in earlier. Alright then, Nuke-

    LUKE: Duke.

    SCROTUM-BOT: Fluke, come on in . . . . . . . . . . . whoa whoa whoa - hold up a tick!

    LUKE: Yes?

    SCROTUM-BOT: Sheesh, I almost forgot to ask. Why are you here?

    LUKE: Right, I . . . uh . . . have a gift for Jabba.

    SCROTUM-BOT: Geez, the boss sure is getting a lot of gifts lately. OH CRAP!! Is it his birthday? I think it’s his birthday! Oh man, Kook-

    LUKE: Duke.

    SCROTUM-BOT: Juke, you think you can do me a solid and say the gift is from both of us?

    LUKE: . . . sure . . . no problem.

    SCROTUM-BOT: Ah, you’re the best, man. OK, Mook, go on through . . . . . . phew, that was pretty close. I really gotta start paying more attention.
