Phrase used by Obi-Wan Kenobi to justify lying to Luke Skywalker about his father, Darth Vader. This phrase may give us deep insight into Obi-wan's character, and explain how he did/will manage to so thoroughly drop the ball with Anakin.

In fairness, some fans choose to view this as George Lucas using Obi-Wan as a convenient way to change the story part way through, and feel that it does not properly reflect Obi-Wan's character.
