I love you. I know.

February Challenge


In The Empire Strikes Back, the script originally had Han and Leia kiss, and then she says, "I love you. I couldn’t tell you before, but it’s true.” Han replies, "Just remember that, ‘cause I’ll be back.” Harrison Ford didn’t think the phrase fit and told the director, Irvin Kershner, he wanted to change it to “I love you. I know.”

Kershner reluctantly agreed, as he thought the phrase “I’ll be back” would be paramount to ending the scene with Han being encased in carbonite.

Little did he know his beloved line would later become famous through another iconic action move.*
