    Luke Addresses Obi-Wan Differently After He Learns The Truth

    From Redditor u/baxterrocky:

    This scene in Return of the Jedi is the ONLY instance of Luke addressing his mentor as “Obi-Wan,” rather than Ben Kenobi. When confronting Ben about lying about his father’s death, Luke levels the accusation at the stranger he never knew, rather than the gentle old man he admired.
