    I love the moment in ANH in the cockpit of the Falcon when Luke quietly says "I care..." after Leia scolds Han for not caring about anything. Or anybody.

    awww, that's a great moment!

    Luke is at his most lovable in ANH.

    Probably would be Luke's second lightsaber being green. While it was done to contrast better with the blue Tatooine sky, it did help to immediately indicate that Luke had a new lightsaber.
    Aw, how cute. This was mine:

    Just after Leia has unfrozen Han from carbonite in Jabba's Palace, as the curtains come back to reveal Jabba, a blind Han tries to reason with Jabba whilst facing the wrong way :D:D

    Also, 3PO saying "I never knew I had it in me" after being levitated in front of the Ewoks

    I use these examples as I'm watching ROTJ right now :)(green)

    The abstract "94" on the outer wall of Docking Bay 94 and the serial number on the TIE pilot helmet of Vader's wingman in ANH.

    Han's face when he accidentally shuts the outer blast door during the battle on Endor. And also, all the little details that make Yoda seem real even though you know he's a puppet.

    And the best exchange ever
    "I don't believe it"
    "That is why you fail"

    One of my tope scenes is when Luke ignites his GREEN lightsaber in ROTJ, and it's something new instead of just blue and red. The whole Yoda scenes in ESB is up there too, and he did seem so real instead of a puppet. Then, the beginning of ROTJ when Vader arrives and tells Jarjerrod that the emperor is not as forgiving as I am, to which he says we shall double our efforts. I think the most iconic Star Wars image for me is when in ANH, Luke is starring at the 2 sunsets and the Binary Sunset music is playing. That is the moment.

    I forgot about one, and I can't believe I did, because it really sticks with me. There is a scene in ESB where Luke gets a hug from Chewie and then Han and he kind of chat just a little, and stare a bit. It's a deep stare with warm feelings. Luke we know won't see Han for a while, as the next time will be after he is unfrozen, but it always struck me with the feels. Like Han kind of looked out for him and now he is going on a new adventure, and that he really appreciates and loves him. Han gets kind of a look like "What was that all about" at the end.

    When we are introduced to Obi-Wan, the "Now there's a name I've not heard in a long, long time. A long time." And also when he is talking about "a more civilized age." They just give such an aura of a real history to him, not just a random guy that we found in a desert. What a great introduction to a character.

    One of my favorite things all through the OT is Threepio always smacking or kicking or insulting Artoo. And Artoo replying in kind (although we can't understand exactly what he's saying, we get the idea.) It's one of the elements that was sorely missing from the PT.
    Yes! This is my favorite Vader moment. I love the slight double take he gives the window. And, yes Piett is so sure he's about to get choked! I was glad to see Piett back by Vader's side in RotJ.

    Seeing Vader's exposed head in ESB was a cool bit. Also scary as a kid.

    I just noticed that a few months ago! These movies are so DENSE! After a hundred views there's still things we haven't seen!

    Every Salacious Crumb shot is pure gold. Especially when hes watching Jabba's tain move back and forth.

    Those and a hundred others...I love it all.

    Luke in ROTJ when he clicks Leah is his sister, and Luke again when he hands himself in to Vader. " I feel the conflict within you, let go of your hate!" Just Mark H, awesome :)

    My favorite moment was when Luke caught his new, green lightsaber and went to town with it on the skiff! The music that plays when he ignites it is just so triumphant and so... Star Wars feeling. :)

    This is one of the many little moments that make Return of the Jedi my favorite Star Wars film!

    Mine is the deleted scene on Hoth when Threepio changed the sign and the snow troopers get torn to shreds by The Wampas .

    The Omen

    That famous omen-rich chat between Ben and Yoda in Empire about fate, which a lot of people misinterpret as a reference to Luke's sister the Princess. The last hope of the Jedi is that Anakin defects from the Sith.

    OBI-WAN: That boy [Luke] is our last hope...
    YODA: No. There is another [Anakin]...

    There are too many to name.

    But, one of the most favorite is Luke's background/reaction faces:

    I like when they show the Space Troopers in A New Hope. I recently found out that they existed (they're a special oxygen-tank-wearing variant of stormtrooper that operates on the outside of the Death Star) and its awesome that the filmmakers made such a unique variant of stormtroopers just for a two-second scene. Adds a lot of depth to the universe.
