“Chewie, we’re home!”

From: Star Wars: The Force Awakens

Genre: Movies

Who said it?: Han Solo

The story behind the quote: This week’s quote comes from Episode VII of the Star Wars film series, The Force Awakens. This film heralded the return of the franchise to the big screen and was met with acclaim from fans and casual audiences alike. Of course, it didn’t hurt that The Force Awakens saw the return of some characters from the original Star Wars trilogy, namely Han Solo, Chewbacca, Princess/General Leio Organa and Luke Skywalker.

Speaking of Han Solo (played once again by an aging Harrison Ford), it was he who actually delivered the quote. After Ray, Finn and BB-8 escape from Jakku on the Millennium Falcon, the ship that made the Kessel Run in under 12 parsecs, the legendary ships breaks down and it sucked into a large ship. As Ray, Finn and BB-8 hide in the bowels of the ship, Han Solo and Chewbacca, who have been tracking their long lost ship, board the Millennium Falcon which is when Han says the line.

Geek wisdom: There’s no place like home. No matter where you are in the world, home is usually a place where you can feel safe and secure. It’s a place where you can just be yourself. Once in a while, it’s always a good idea to return home just for you to remember that feeling of security.

“Let the hate flow through you.”

From: Return of the Jedi

Genre: Movies

Who said it?: Emperor Palpatine

The story behind the quote: This week’s quote comes from “Episode VI” of the Star Wars film franchise, Return of the Jedi. It is, as of this writing, the last film timeline-wise in the Star Wars movies. However, we are going to get a new trilogy starting with Episode VII: The Force Awakens this December.

But we’re not talking about The Force Awakens. We’re talking about Return of the Jedi!

The quote comes during the final scenes of the film. Luke Skywalker has come aboard the new Death Star to confront his father, Darth Vader. It turns out Emperor Palpatine, the leader of The Empire, is also aboard and the Sith Lord intends to turn Luke to the Dark Side. In order to accomplish this, Palpatine goads Luke to kill his father and, essentially, give in to the intense dark feeling the young Jedi master has against Darth Vader.

Geek wisdom: Hate is a very strong emotion. But that’s all it is: an emotion. It’s something that you can control. Like all emotions, it’s something you can control. In fact, in this day of age, you need to have full control over it and never late hate control you.
