Obi-Wan: Very well. We should leave right away. Guess I should cancel my Tatooine Times delivery.

Obi-Wan: Uh... can I stay over? I've got my own bedroll.
GM: Sure, Ben.
C-3PO: What?! You're coming home, aren't you?
Obi-Wan: Sally, can you do me a favour? Don't tell mum and dad I'm back.
Obi-Wan: I don't want you to have to deal with their questions. I'll talk to them in a couple of days.
