Darth Vader Loves Surprises

This breakdown of the betrayal on Bespin is everything:

But… Vader tells Lando, … I want you to invite them to dinner. Bring them to the banquet room. Then when you enter the banquet room, I will be sitting there waiting for them and it will be a huge surprise. I even have a funny line prepared.”…

Lando: “Okay, but why will you be sitting? …

Vader: “Calrissian, I want to be sitting. It adds to the effect that I’m just sitting down for a meal like anyone else would be. But when they enter, I will stand.”

Fett: “Wait, I’m also sitting at the table?”

Vader: “No, bounty hunter. You come in later, after I deliver my punchline.”
