70s/80s Tv Episodes that mention/reference Star Wars

I’m trying to figure out all the TV episodes from the golden age (so the time the movies were out and popular, meaning 70s and 80s; this isn’t the thread for bringing up Family Guy) that reference Star Wars in any way. Like for example, Michael mentions Darth Vader in a Knight Rider episode. And the girls say they went to the Empire Strikes Back in a Facts of Life episode. That kind of thing. There’s more I’ve got, but I’ll leave some for the discussion.

I did look at this page, and there’s not a whole lot in the realm I was looking for. I also wondered if there were specific things that stood out to forum members. And I know things are missing, like I didn’t see reference to that Facts of Life episode I mention in my OP. I also know of a mention of Luke Skywalker in a Silver Spoons episode, which wasn’t on the list either.

Not from the era without thinking longer about it.

From the 90s though the things that I recall immediately recall are the X-Files episode Small Potatoes https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uqNC2K4YbK0

And the ending of this Spaced episode https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5XMkW1btoEM

Oh this too https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EZnsOZsA7_4

Thanks! Yeah, I should have mentioned it in my original post, 90s is good too. I just didn’t want really modern shows.
