Star Wars Thanksgiving

WGarth Callaghan

I have been a very active participant and supporter of Star Wars Thanksgiving, a social media event in which we take average Star Wars quotes and make them more awesome by using Thanksgiving related themes.   I have been posting on Twitter, Facebook, and Google+ all day.  Here's a list of my posts. 

May the Fork Be With You


A long time ago in a dining room far, far away... 

That's no moon.  That's a Gravy Boat. - Ben Kenobi 

I felt a great disturbance in the Force, as if millions of turkeys cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced. 

I'm not full. - Luke  You will be.  You will be. - Yoda 

Now, tomorrow I want you to take that turkey to Anchorhead and have it's memory erased. 

We have an emergency alert in detention block AA-23. The Turkey? Put all sections on alert. 

 Obi-wan *is* here. The Stuffing is with him. 

The ability to destroy a planet is insignificant next to the power of the Stuffing. 

I find your lack of drumsticks disturbing. 

You would prefer another turkey, a military turkey? Then name the system! 

Your father's drumstick. This is the weapon of a Jedi Knight. Not as clumsy or random as a blaster 

For over a thousand generations, the Jedi Knights were the guardians of stuffing & potatoes in the Old Republic 

There's nothing for me here now. I want to learn the ways of the stuffing and become a Jedi like my father. 

Going somewhere, Solo?
Han Solo: Yes, Greedo. I was just going to see your boss. Tell Jabba I've got his turkey. 

Uh, everything's under control. Situation normal.
Uh, we had a slight carving knife malfunction 

Uh, uh... negative, negative. We had a gravy leak here now. Give us a few minutes to lock it down. 

I used to bullseye turkeys in my T-16 back home, they're not much bigger than two meters. 

Traveling through hyperspace ain't like whipping potatoes, boy! 

The Stuffing is what gives a Jedi his power. It's an energy field created by all living things. It surrounds us and penetrates us. It binds the turkey together. 

 Hokey religions and ancient weapons are no match for a good drumstick at your side, kid. 

Governor Tarkin, I should have expected to find you holding Vader's drumstick. 

C-3PO: Don't call me a mindless philosopher, you overweight glob of gravy. 

C-3PO: I suggest a new strategy, R2: let the turkey win. 

These aren't the drumsticks you're looking for. 

Someone *was* in the gravy boat. The tracks go off in this direction. 

The ability to destroy a planet is insignificant next to the power of the Stuffing. 

Ready are you? What know you of ready? For eight hundred years have I trained Turkeys.

Only a fully trained Jedi Knight, with the Stuffing as his ally, will conquer Vader and his Emperor. 

Sir, the possibility of successfully navigating a Thanksgiving Buffet is approximately 3,720 to 1. 

Judge me by my size, do you? Hmm? And well you should not. For my ally is the Stuffing, and a powerful ally it is. 

Vader: What is thy bidding, my master? Emperor: There is a great disturbance in the Stuffing. 

The Stuffing is strong with him. The son of Skywalker must not become a Jedi. 

Han Solo: Afraid I was gonna leave without giving you a goodbye kiss?
Princess Leia: I'd just as soon kiss a Turkey. 

 The Stuffing is with you, young Skywalker, but you are not a Jedi yet. 

It'll keep you warm until I get the shelter up...  Ugh. And I thought turkeys smelled bad on the outside. 

Yoda: I am wondering, why are you here?
Luke: I'm looking for turkey.
Yoda: Looking? Found turkey, you have 

Luke: All right, I'll give it a taste.
Yoda: No. Taste not. Eat... or eat not. There is no taste.  

Obi-Wan has taught you well. You have controlled your gravy. Now, release your cranberries. 

Away put your drumstick. I mean you no harm. 

A Jedi's strength flows from the Stuffing. 

But beware of the dark meat. Anger, fear, aggression; the dark side of the Stuffing are they. 

Echo Station 3-T-8, we have spotted Saugage Stuffing. 

The Rebels are alerted to our presence. Admiral Ozzel came out of lightspeed too close to Grandmother's House. 

Lord Vader, we only use this facility for turkey frying. If you put him in there it might kill him. 

Obi-Wan once thought as you do. You don't know the *power* of the Stuffing, I *must* obey my master. 

Search your gravy, Father, you can't do this. I feel the conflict within you. Let go of your hate. 

Darth Vader: The Turkey Dinner will be completed on schedule.
The Emperor: You've done well, Lord Vader. 

I see you have constructed a new drumstick. Your skills are complete. 

Take your drumstick. Strike me down with all of your hatred and your journey towards the dark side will be complete! 

Remember, a Jedi's strength flows from the Stuffing. But beware. Potatoes, Gravy, the dark side are they. 

Family Dinner Time.  "It's A Trap!" 

Remember, a Jedi's strength flows from the Turkey. But beware. Drumsticks, Thighs, the dark side are they. 

I have a bad feeling about this.  

Obi-Wan: But Master Yoda says I should be mindful of the stuffing
Qui-Gon Jinn: But not at the expense of the turkey

Qui-Gon Jinn: Gravy can be a very powerful ally. 

Anakin: You're a Jedi Knight, aren't you?
Qui-Gon Jinn: What makes you think that?
Anakin: I saw your drumstick. 

Qui-Gon Jinn: There's always a bigger turkey. 

Queen Amidala: I was not elected to watch my people suffer and die while you discuss this invasion in a buffet! 

Yoda: Always two there are, no more, no less. A turkey and a baster.

Jango Fett: I'm just a simple man, trying to make my way through the buffet. 

Jango Fett: Always a pleasure to meet a turkey.  

Obi-Wan: But he still has much to learn, Master. His abilities have made him... well hungry

Yoda: Mmm. Lost a gravy ladle Master Obi-Wan has. How embarrassing. How embarrassing.

I killed them all. They're dead, every single one of them. Not just the turkeys, but the cranberries & the yams, too 

I will not let this turkey, which has stood for a thousand years, be split in two. My negotiations will not fail. 

This contest cannot be decided by our knowledge of the stuffing.. but by our skills with a carving knife

I think it is time we inform the senate that our ability to use the stuffing has diminished. 

Do you really think it will come to war?
The dark meat clouds everything. Impossible to see the future is. 

 So this is how the turkey dies, with thunderous applause. - Padme Amidala

Luke, we're going to have company! 

Hokey recipes, and old carving tools are no substitute for a good baster at your side.

meh. Turkey. Gravy. A Jedi craves not these things

Droids don't pull turkey's wishbones apart when they lose. Wookiees have been known to do that.

"Governor Tarkin...I recognized your "fowl" stench when I was brought on board"...

May the fork be with you, always. 

Grand Moff Turkey: "Evacuate the kitchen at our moment of triumph? I think you overestimate the oven's chances." 

Ready are you? What know you of ready? For eight hundred years have I cooked Turkey

Don't lecture me, Obi-Wan!! I see through the lies of the Jedi. I do not fear the dark meat as you do 

Something's happening. I'm not the Jedi I should be. I want more gravy. And I know I shouldn't
