Years ago I used to collect MAD Magazine. The one with the boy on the front with the missing front tooth. Well, I have been thinking of that lately, and there is one issue that I quote bits from as it is so funny. It was from 1983, and the main story was “Rehash of the Yeti” – a reworking of “Return of the Jedi“. Here are some of the quotes:
[Lando against the Death Star] “The only thing we aren’t throwing against them is the kitchen sink …. oh there it is”
Luke: You are my sister
Leia: I know and R2 is my Barstool, and Chewie is my rug, and Han is my distant cousin five times removed
Yoda: When 900 years old you reach, talk as good you will not
And my personal favourite:
Luke: Yoda, I need to know; is Darth Vader my father?
Yoda: One of your parents he is, your mother he’s not
