The Defense Astrobellic

I’m coining a new term, the “defense astrobellic.” It means an argument or speech that is based on any story from the Star Wars universe.  


Here’s an example, in ‘Family Guy,” Peter says, “Strike me down Lois, and I will become more powerful than you can imagine.” This is a paraphrase of what Obi-Wan says to Darth Vader in Star Wars: A New Hope.


Imagine someone comes to your house in a beaten-down jalopy of a car. You could say as Leia said to Han Solo, “You came in that thing? You’re braver than I thought.”


Here’s a pick up line from The Empire Strikes Back, “You like me because I’m a scoundrel. There aren’t enough scoundrels in your life.”


Exrta points for lines taken from The Empire Strikes Back. Demerits for lines from The Phantom Menace.

    When my wife has bad breath I tell her I’d sooner kiss a wookie.

    After helping a friend fix a party meal you stick around to see the reactions. “Why don’t yu go home and rest?” she asks. “I can’t let you take all the credit and get all the reward now” I grin.
