Luke Ben Baran Do

Luke and Ben Skywalker wear breath masks in order to protect themselves from Dorin's helium-rich atmosphere.

Ben: "Hey, there's something I've been meaning to do for you. I've been practicing while you weren't around."
Luke: "Go ahead."
Ben: "*Takes a deep breath of helium-rich air, and sings* Where fields once grew, a road runs through, and buildings hide the sun."
Luke: "Ben, don't."
Ben: "Where grass of green could once be seen, are only gray and brown."
Luke: "I hate that song under normal circumstances."
Ben: "My childhood home, while I did roam, became a place of sadness."
Luke: "I'll just wait until you pass out."
Ben: "Now I return, my heart does yearn for times of light and gladness."
Luke: "You'll make your throat sore."
Ben Skywalker, teasing his father on Dorin[1]
