Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back (1980)
Admiral Piett: Lord Vader, our ships have completed their scan of the area and found nothing. If the Millennium Falcon went into light-speed, it'll be on the other side of the galaxy by now.
Darth Vader: Alert all commands. Calculate every possible destination along their last known trajectory.
Admiral Piett: Yes, my Lord. We'll find them.
Darth Vader: Don't fail me again, Admiral.

Darth Vader: Yes, Admiral?
Admiral Piett: Our ships have sighted the Millennium Falcon, Lord. But it has entered an asteroid field and we can not risk...
Darth Vader: [interrupting] Asteroids do not concern me, Admiral! I want that ship, not excuses!

[Darth Vader has just learned of Admiral Ozzel's big blunder, and activates a viewscreen]
Admiral Ozzel: [appearing onscreen with Captain Piett] Lord Vader, the fleet has moved out of lightspeed and we're preparing to...
[Ozzel stops, and suddenly begins to choke, clutching at his throat]
Darth Vader: You have failed me for the last time, Admiral! Captain Piett?
Captain Piett: Yes, my lord?
Darth Vader: Make ready to land our troops beyond their energy field, and deploy the fleet, so that nothing gets off the system.
[beside Piett, Admiral Ozzel utters one last strangled gasp, and falls over dead]
Darth Vader: You are in command now... Admiral Piett!
Admiral Piett: Thank you, Lord Vader.

[reacting to the arrival of Boba Fett and others]
Admiral Piett: Bounty hunters. We don't need that scum.

Darth Vader: Yes, Admiral, what is it?
Admiral Piett: The Emperor commands you make contact with him.
Darth Vader: Move the ship out of the asteroid field so that we can send a clear transmission.

Captain Needa: [on a hologram] They were damaged, Lord Vader, the last time they appeared in any of our scopes. Considering the amount of damage we've sustained, they must be destroyed.
Darth Vader: [not on the hologram] No, Captain. They're alive. I want every ship available to sweep the asteroid field until they are found.
[Needa bows and the hologram disappears]
Admiral Piett: [walks up to Vader] Lord Vader.
Darth Vader: Yes, Admiral, what is it?
Admiral Piett: The Emperor commands you to make contact with him.
Darth Vader: Move the ship out of the asteroid field so we can send a clear transmission.
Admiral Piett: Yes, master.
[Vader goes into his room and bows as the Emperor appears on a giant hologram]
Darth Vader: What is thy bidding, my master?
Emperor Palpatine: There is a great disturbance in the Force.
Darth Vader: I have felt it.
Emperor Palpatine: We have a new enemy. Luke Skywalker.
Darth Vader: Yes, my master.
Emperor Palpatine: He could destroy us.
Darth Vader: He's just a boy. Obi-Wan can no longer help him.
Emperor Palpatine: The Force is strong with him. The son of Skywalker cannot become a Jedi.
Darth Vader: If he could be turned, he would become a powerful ally.
Emperor Palpatine: Yes... Yes. He would be a great ascent. Can it be done?
Darth Vader: He will join us, or die, my master.

Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi (1983)
Darth Vader: Do they have a code clearance?
Admiral Piett: It's an older code, sir, but it checks out. I was about to clear them.

Admiral Piett: Shall I hold them?
Darth Vader: No. Leave them to me. I will deal with them myself.

Admiral Piett: I have my orders from the Emperor himself. He has something special planned for them. We only need to keep them from escaping.

Stardestroyer Controller #1: Sir! We've lost our bridge deflector shield!
Admiral Piett: Intensify the forward batteries, I don't want anything to get through.
[A-Wing careenes towards Super Star Destroyer Bridge]
Admiral Piett: Intensify forward fire power!
Imperial Officer: Too late!
