I am a complete fan of Star Wars. I have seen it in every medium... including original release in the 70's. I own all versions of each episode. I know every line of IV-VI... and I can definitely say that Mark says in an exited, rushed (almost squealed) voice as he approaches the princess... "CARRIE" and embraces her. I even triple checked it. It is in the Original, Second, and Current editions of the movie.

Ok, the captioning does not have the line there, but something is said, and it is "Carrie." It's a mistake the George Lucas has admitted to.

It's a true slip-up. I met Mark Hammil a few years ago when I worked at a radio station in Boston, and asked him about that. He says it's true, but he didn't remember saying it, and caught it a few years later.

Saying "Carrie" is a slip-up, so how would you be able to check the script?

It is a well documented slip-up, he says it. It is on all 3 versions and probably will be on the DVD. He definitely says "Carrie". Actors screw up, deal with it.

Interesting one this, the web site says that Hamill DIDN'T say it but apparently Lucas had previously admitted to it, saying that he didn't want to re-shoot the entire scene since no one would spot it (ha ha fat chance I should coco). Either Lucas' "admittance" is one of many Star Wars rumours that are just untrue, or Lucas is changing his mind again, like he constantly seems to be doing with the prequels

Ok, I guess I'm the worst at finding slip ups because I never noticed this. And you would think that they would notice this!!

I've heard this one before, but I don't think it's true. After watching that scene a few times, I'm fairly certain he is saying "Hey!" not "Carrie!"

I saw some stuff on this subject on the offical site. It said they processed the tape or something and found he doesen't say carrie. Acording to the site, Mark Hamill said he said something like there she is, but ended up swalowing most of it.

George Lucas has admitted to this slip-up. Mark actually did say "CARRIE!" It was left in because this was a complicated scene with a lot of extras and would have taken too long, and been too expensive, to set up again.

I don't know, I heard about this supposed slipup years ago, watched that particular line reading over and over and over again, and it has never sounded like "Carrie" to me. At all.

Even if it was admitted that this was a slip-up, how do you explain the fact that it DOESN'T sound like "Carrie"? He's saying "Heeeeey!" The only way it could be interpreted as Carrie is because it's sort of drawn out. But there's no 'c' sound and no 'r' sound. Seriously.

Luke Definitely does not say "Carrie!" More than likely he flubbed his line and blurted out something resembling "Hieeeee!!!" or he was saying "Hey!" as in "Hey!!! Did you see me use that force thingy???" Also, the first words Han Solo says in that scene are "Hey!" Perhaps Lucas had a severe case of writers block...

So many people on so many web sites have their own opinion on what he says.....I think he was just really excited and said something along the lines of "hey" and "yay". It sounds like this to me: chayay! I just think he was cheering. And, if he did say Carrie, he caught himself in the middle of the word, like : Ca-yay! They probably thought it sounded close enough to yay or hey so they kept it.

This is BOGUS! Hamill himself has admitted he did NOT say Carrie. This is another case of people hearing what they're told to. If you think he says Carrie, then that's what you'll hear no matter how many different versions you watch.

After carefully reviewing the movie nearly fifty-seven times, I have concluded that Mark Hamill does in fact, say something resembling "Carry". However, it is hard to tell for sure. It would be safe to say that he did miss a line, but hid not exactly say "Carry". NOTE:The mess-up can be found in either new or old versions.

I've heard this. He DOES say "Carrie." Before I owned the new (remastered, with this line cut out) gold editions, I rented the silver editions, which are just the same movies in different packaging and in slightly better condition. As far as I know, it's not in the gold editions, but when the movie was made, he said "Carrie."

I have heard "Carrie" in both the new and old versions of A New Hope. I have heard Lucas admit it, but I remember before all this speculation hearing my dad say "wow, now that was a mess-up. He called her Carrie" back in the 80s when I first saw the movie. So whether he did or he didn't....I heard Carrie :O)

Maybe he was just looking at her hair or mustache or something and saying..."Wow, she's HAIRY!"

First off, kinda sounds like "Carrie" to me, and the way she laughs immedieately afterwards doesn't necessarily confirm this, but it sounds as if she's saying "Oh, Mark, you silly boy. I know you want my body." (Carrie is still hot today in my opinion.)
