No… I am your father!

For some reason, this scene reminded me of that fantastic scene in Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, when Darth Vader reveals to Luke Skywalker that, contrary to what Obi Wan had led Luke to believe, Luke’s father was not dead.  In fact, Vader was Luke’s father.  To this day, that has got to be one of the greatest twists in all of cinema, and when I saw this movie when it first came out, oh so many years ago, I never saw this coming.  A lot of people out there (you could be one of them) misquote that famous Vader line as “Luke, I am your father.”  Heck, I wish that had been the line, ’cause to me, at least, that is far more quotable, but the truth is the exchange between Vader and Luke goes like this:

Darth Vader: Obi-Wan never told you what happened to your father.
Luke Skywalker: He told me enough! He told me you killed him!
Darth Vader: No. I am your father.
Luke Skywalker: No… that’s not true! That’s impossible!
