In all honesty, I didn't care much for Han when I saw Star Wars--maybe because I was already in love with Zorro/Diego. I saw SW in 1980 when it was re-released before "Empire Strkes Back" came out, so I was about age 7 or so. Then ESB came out and I saw Han jump on a tauntaun with a quick "Yah!", and I took notice. By the time we got to this scene, I was telling Leia, "Kiss him! KISS him!" Once she did, I was hooked on him for good.
