National Star Wars Day

Happy National Star Wars Day to you all! Apparently, May 4th is National Star Wars Day because "the 4th will be with you". Seriously, I'm not making this up! Why they picked May, I don't know.

Let's see, I got a bunch of Star Wars stuff stuck on my computer, so lets settle for a little of each.

: some quotes. Classics, all of them.

Mace: "Mount up. Right now."
Nick: "Shee, still pretty free with the orders, aren't we? What if I just don't wanna? What if I do like thinking about all that stuff? What if I want those people dead? What then?"
Mace: "Then I will beat you into unconsciousness and ask someone else."
Mace Windu, convincing Nick Rostu to help him with the Balawai[src]

Mara: "The Emperor would have considered you a sentimental fool who deserved to die."
Corran: "I'll remember that next time I dance on his grave."
Mara Jade and Corran Horn[src]

Corran: "Consider also that the odds this room is being monitored are extraordinarily high."
Anakin: "Since when did a Corellian ever care about odds?"
Corran: "Fine. No odds. They are listening to us. Count on it."
Corran Horn with Anakin Solo, detained by the Givin[src]
You're weird, Anakin Skywalker."
Amee, to Anakin Skywalker in the understatement of the year[src]

Owner: "What's your name, little fellow?"
R2-D2: "THAT'S NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS. IN ANY CASE, YOUR FACIAL FEATURE SET SUGGESTS THAT YOU DO NOT HAVE THE INTELLIGENCE TO RETAIN MY NAME FOR MORE THAN A NANOSECOND. IT IS EVIDENT THAT YOU HAVE BEEN TAUGHT TO REPEAT SOUNDS YOU HAVE HEARD AND THAT YOU UNDERSTAND NEITHER THE WORDS YOU HEAR NOR THE ONES THAT EMERGE FROM YOUR MOUTH."
―A shop owner on Vannix and R2-D2[src]


Etain: "Is there a plan C?"
Fi: "The nice thing about the alphabet, ma'am, is that it gives you plenty of plans to choose from."
Etain Tur-Mukan and Fi[src]
Besides, Master, those miners intended to murder you. Or worse. Any complaints they would have at being murdered would be the highest form of hypocrisy."
HK-50 unit, to the Jedi Exile[src]
Pavan: "Hey, what happened to the door?"
I-5YQ: "It appears to have had a disagreement with somebody."
Lorn Pavan and I-5YQ, viewing the handiwork of Darth Maul[src]

Sharr: "No, she can't."
Piggy: "Yes, she can."
Sharr: "I'm the psychological warfare expert here, and I say she can't."
Piggy: "I'm three times your mass, and can take off your head with a single bite, and I say she can."
Sharr Latt and Voort saBinring[src]

"Their force nearly equals ours?! Unacceptable odds! Order an immediate retreat!"
―A Neimoidian commander, displaying typical Neimoidian battle tactics[src]

Booster: "But you didn't bring my grandchildren."
Corran: "They're scattered to the four corners of the galaxy on Jedi business. Not my fault."
Booster: "Humpf." [to Mirax] "Your husband still can't do simple math. You can't scatter two children to four corners."
Mirax: "Jedi think that everybody can be divided into fractions."
Booster Terrik, Corran Horn, and Mirax Terrik Horn[src]

Old trick


"There's a Wookiee behind me? Riiiiiight. Like I'm gonna fall for that."





"Someday the Fetts will learn to stop wearing jetpacks. Someday."


"Styrofoam? Kidding, you must be. Insane you are, if getting on that deathtrap you think I am!" -- Yoda, after budget cutbacks hit the Republic fleet.


:D

Also, today is Audrey Hepburn day. No offense, but Star Wars owns Audrey Hepburn right out of the sky.

Now I have My Fair Lady songs stuck in my head.
Rats.

  3. The quotes are actually all from books! Beside each quote caption, you will see a little blue [src] sign that will tell where the quote is from! (its kinda hard to see.)
    You have to agree, that actually translating r2d2 is more interesting then just saying "r2 d2 beeped."

    Have you read the adventure in odyssey books? I've read "strange journey back", "the passages series", and another book which name i can't remember.

  4. This is getting complicated! I don't post where you commented (my Blogger) anymore... but I used to be involved in a Star Wars Fanforce- I was the co-founder for it in my area. Have you heard about Fanforces? They're a great opportunity for fans and families to get together and do fun stuff. If you've heard of them, then I'm sorry to advertise it to you. ;-)

    I'm not going to CV because I'm in a bunch of weddings this summer, and none are near Orlando. I've only done one Celebration before, but it was the first one! I was about 13 back then... long time ago. Hah! The photo of me with Jango was taken at the RotJ premiere in El Paso, near where I'm from.
