With the massive blockbuster Star Wars: Rogue One coming out this week, a fair few of us are excited about it. Some of you… a bit less so. Some girls will just have to just accept that they’ll be dragged to watch it by their boyfriends, whether they want to or not.
What you really don’t want to do, is admit that you’ve actually never seen a Star Wars film in your life. If you think two hours out of your life is painful – try the fourteen hours it will take to watch all of seven films that are already out! Sometimes you just have to pick your battles.
Luckily for you, The Daily Struggle have enlisted a Star Wars expert (otherwise known as a bad, bad nerd) to help you pepper in as many Star Wars quotes into your normal conversations so you don’t arouse suspicion…
When 900 years old you reach, look as good, you will not – Yoda
Whenever your boyfriend makes a poorly judged comment on your appearance say this to him instead of tearing his head off. Said by the little green dude with the pointy ears, you must know him… right?
I find your lack of faith disturbing – Darth Vader
The ideal comeback when you’ve just proved him wrong and he can’t take it. There is no greater power than the force – just start referring to yourself as ‘the force’ and he’ll finally get the picture.
Mind tricks don’t work on me – Watto
In the films, Jedi’s can trick weak minded people into doing whatever they tell them. Let him know you’re not that much of a pushover when he tries to use reverse psychology on you to get what he wants…
You came in THAT thing? You’re braver than I thought – Princess Leia
If he shows you a picture of his ex, and let’s hope he never does, you can fire back with this beauty. He can’t get mad, it’s only a quote…
You can’t win Darth. Strike me down and I will become more powerful than you could possibly imagine – Obi-Wan Kenobi
Play fighting is part and parcel of any relationship. Make sure he knows who’s boss so he always lets you win.
Great kid, don’t get cocky – Han Solo
Sometimes he’ll get something right, and if he’s anything like me, he’ll never let you forget it. Attempt to shut him up with this one liner.
IT’S A TRAP – Admiral Ackbar
Shouted by a massive talking crab (no, seriously), this is always a good one to fall back on anytime you suspect something isn’t what it seems.
Who’s more foolish: the fool, or the fool who follows him? – Obi-Wan Kenobi
If you’ve ever gotten lost trying to get somewhere, and I think it’s safe to say we all have, make sure you shut up his moaning with this great line.
Why you stuck-up, half-witted, scruffy looking Nerf herder! – Princess Leia
The perfect go-to insult when your feller is being a tit. Put two donuts on either side of your head to complete the Princess Leia look.
