When have you quoted Star Wars lines in the right situation? — Page 2

I just stand around quietly and look intimidating, but nobody ever says "Hey, man, nice Boba Fett impression!"

=(

 

But no, I quote Star Wars so often that I can't even begin to think of all the times I say something in the right situation. I'll keep better track from now on and keep you posted, though.

Keep Circulating the Tapes.

END OF LINE

Its "I hate sand" GET IT RIGHT!

;)

No kidding... it's only the most crucial, pivotal line in the entire saga!  Everything that happens throughout the series hinges on Anakin's extreme hatred of sand.

Eons ago, a teacher of mine asked me to do her a favor.

I replied:

"But I was going to Toshe Station to check out the power converters!"

There's something fun about quoting the cut scenes.  Mostly because practically no one knows what the heck you are talking about.

"You're getting a little soft in the city."

"You've got a mouth bigger than a meteor crater."

"It looks like Wormie's got too much sun!"

Or if you want to get really obscure, which I do sometimes, is start quoting lines out of the earlier drafts of the scripts:

"I'm a free-booter, not a revolutionary.  You're aboard the wrong ship, son!"

I use "everything is proceeding exactly as I have foreseen" sometimes to make it look like my mistakes are intentional.

Almost anytime I say "good luck" I automatically follow it with "you're gonna need it."

I do that, but I say: "But I was going to Tosche Station to pick up some power converters!"

I use "What a wonderful smell you've discovered" much too often ...

I was comforting a depressed friend because his slutty ex had made a cuckhold out of him. I actually thought it was pretty well deserved because we had warned him quite a few times before it happened for real. While he was preparing to unleash another one of his tantrums I suddenly say the following lines, making my best Emperor impersonation (which is fairly good): "Good, good. The dark side is strong in you. Now witness the FIREPOWER of this fully armed and OPE-RA-TIONAL BATTLESTATION!".

He immediately tried to kick my ass while me and my (other) friend were laughing our asses off.

Ignorant of many things, but still a real bro.

The only SW line that I truly use all the time is "Sometimes I amaze even myself."  It's almost become an inside-joke with my friends.

The one I use the most is "Not this ship, sister."

Sample context...

co-worker: "Can you believe the boss wants those figures on such short notice? She said we all have to send her the updates by day's end."

me, not planning on complying: "Not this ship, sister."

I prefer the Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind counterpart:

JOEL: Sand is overrated.  It's just tiny, little rocks.

Back in the day when I used to play Dungeons And Dragons, if anyone rolled a dice to hit someone and had a near miss, one of us would always say: "It's a hit, it's a hit.  Negative, it didn't go in.  It just impacted on the surface."

Just the other day I was telling my class that a state test would be given by the assistant principal, while I'd be elsewhere due to scheduling.

"And I warn you, Mr. David is not as forgiving as I am."

I felt pretty cool.

This one was actually from a friend of mine, who is not even a Star Wars fan.

After walking in on my girlfriend and I in a compromising situation (with her in the approximate pose above), his favourite joke for the next week or so was to bend down and say "Help me Obi-Wan Kenobi, you're my only hope!". I couldn't help but think it was hilarious and that we also deserved it for being in the kitchen at the time...

Some friends of mine and I were having a movie night at my place.  I think.  Or we were chilling, I don't quite remember.  Anyway, point is, one of my friends got a text message from a mutual friend: our mutual friend was pleased to announce that he was on his way to getting himself very laid that night!

 

So, naturally, all four of us started texting him back like mad with quotes from the radio chatter from the Death Star run. "ALMOST THERE!" "YOU'VE GOT ONE ON YOUR TAIL!" "BLAST IT, BIGGS, WHERE ARE YOU?!" "ALMOST THERE!" and so on and so forth.  After a good fifteen, sixteen of these texts we got a very angry phone call.  The man was laughing so hard that he couldn't breath and wasn't able to pay attention to the lady he was wooing.

 

Actually, he didn't get any that night anyway - and it wasn't our fault (not our fault)!  The friend who received the original text promised to deliver the final blow to him later: "Negative, negative.  It didn't go in..."

I caught this thread and it made me laugh.

I thought I’d bump it up so that the new members can join in.
