Intercom voices in the OT

Hi.
A quick question about some lines that are not in the script. I'm making subtitles for these movies and I'm not sure about some of these intercom voices. Here's what I can't figure out:

SW
When Han & Luke as stormtroopers are walking Chewie to the elevators, there's twice "Five-three, to upper..." What? Bay? It sounds like bay-co. Hmm...
The very first time when we see the rebel hangar (just after heroes come inside), what does the intercom voice say?
When Luke goes to his X-Wing, voice says "stay clear from X-Wing..." something?
Also does stormtroopers continue talking after they say "they're maybe on levels five and six now, sir" and Ben comes in that scene?

TESB
Just before scene cuts to probe droid near the generators, rebel base intercom says "pilots, report to hangar..." what? Seven? Bay?
Is there any other rebel base voices which don't appear in the script? I can't tell if there's something that anyone could hear before Han is going to check Leia and in the hallway ice is cracking from the ceiling, there's something there.

I guess there's no extra lines in ROTJ that are hard to hear, or is there... I do have the SW Trilogy script book which is the base for my subtitles, but these lines are just added as sound effects so there's no mention about these.

And in the time of greatest despair, there shall come a savior, and he shall be known as the Son of the Suns.

Also, in the Star Wars Special Edition there's added some sandtrooper talk in the new dewback/escape pod scene.
And when talking about the SEs, in the end of ROTJ some guy(s) yells something on Coruscant = English? The '97 version, that is, so don't even think about saying that some damn Gungans are yelling "wesa free!".

Can anyone help me out if they have some audio editing thingies where you can reduce noise or happens to know what these people are trying to say... or just have very good hearing. Any help would be appreciated.

The guy yelling on Coruscant at the end of ROTJ says: "The son of suns! The son of suns!"

iirc, this is a reference to an old draft of Star Wars that refers to the the "son of suns" who would fulfill a prophecy.

You know of the rebellion against the Empire?

In Star Wars, troopers ask the bartender something and then he points at Han's table. I guess he ask if some dudes were "here", which is the only word I can hear. What do they ask?

Pretty silent here... I hope someone knows something.

Well, my laserdiscs are close-captioned, so I guess I could play those with the subtitles, and see what comes up.

Do you have the official SW DVDs? Those subtitles would be easier to check.

<span class=“Italics”>MeBeJedi: You aren’t one of us.
<span class=“Bold”>Go-Mer-Tonic: I can’t say I find that very disappointing.</span></span>

Now I feel stupid. I checked A New Hope and there's few in there. It's "53, to upper bay door" and some others that I just guessed are now confirmed. Those other things I mentioned aren't there and I found one more intercome voice. It's right there when a guy shuts Y-Wing canopy before they leave the hangar.
Also, those subtitles prove that my script isn't so accurate! BT-16 is now VT-16, top gassing is outgassing, and "The door's locked?" is "The door's locked.". Those I found when I watched random scenes.
