"You're all clear, kid. Now let's blow this thing and go home!"
Credit to the filmmakers and editors of 1977 for cleverly and skillfully making us actually forget about Han Solo and Chewbacca for fifteen minutes or so during the electric-to-watch battle of the Death Star, and in doing so generating such a welcome crowd-pleasing reaction when the duo ultimately speeds in from above to help their young friend Luke Skywalker in his most desperate need. A scene that will always generate hearty cheers and applause!

|Harrison Ford has some dialogue trouble again in this blooper!|
As Luke and the remaining survivors fast depart the about-to-blow Death Star, a line was filmed but cut in which he says to Han in reply: "Glad you were here to see it. Now let's get some distance before this thing goes supernova!"
