I was watching Empire Strikes Back and I never noticed this before, but in the scene where Leia briefs the pilots on Hoth? You can see Han in the background, working on the Falcon

image

Leia begins the briefing and he’s still welding in the background

image

still welding…

image

but the Hobbie asks about two fighters against a star destroyers and Leia turns to talk to him

image

meaning she’s now facing the Falcon

image

and when we cut back to the wider shot…

image

look who suddenly found something better to do, and is in fact not even pretending to work anymore, he’s literally just standing there

image

(it’s almost like he perked up when Hobbie questioned Leia’s plan like he wanted to see how she’d respond to it aka reminder that Leia’s “calm facade concealed an impressive temper” and Han “enjoyed watching it in action” and how the hell did he even notice this with the noise and the sparks from the welder, eh Han? Eh?)

anyway as soon as it’s clear that she’s turned away again, it’s back to the welding

image

… at least until the commander guy yells “okay, everybody to your stations!” and Leia turns to go

image

at which point he’s back to just standing there, although this time he remembered to at least pretend to be engrossed in work

image

so basically Han Solo notices when Leia Organa turns towards him halfway across the hangar, stops what he’s doing to watch her give orders when she turns so he can see her, then hurriedly goes back to pretending to work once he realises what he’s doing
