          Tighten Your Grip

          Princess Leia: Governor Tarkin, I should have expected to find you holding Vader's leash. I recognized your foul stench when I was brought on board.

          Governor Tarkin: Charming to the last. You don't know how hard I found it, signing the order to terminate your life.

          Princess Leia: I'm surprised that you had the courage to take the responsibility yourself.

          Governor Tarkin: Princess Leia, before your execution, I'd like you to join me for a ceremony that will make this battle station operational. No star system will dare oppose the Emperor now.

          Princess Leia: The more you tighten your grip, Tarkin, the more star systems will slip through your fingers.

          Governor Tarkin: Not after we demonstrate the capabilities of this station.
