How I Met Your Mother / Star Wars
If you haven’t watched How I Met Your Mother, it’s actually one of my favorite shows. Every few episodes there is at least one Star Wars reference or joke embedded in there.
“Lily doesn’t chew loudly” - Marshall
“Dude, come on. This isn’t news. Why do you think I call her Chewbacca?” - Ted
“I assumed because she’s loyal, wears shiny belts, and I resemble a young Harrison Ford.” - Marshall
“Think of me as Yoda. Only, instead of being little and green, I wear suits and I’m awesome. I’m your bro. I’m Broda. And tonight, you’re going to use the force to get the hottest chicks into bed.” - Barney
“And if that doesn’t scare them away, there’s always your life sized storm trooper” - Lily
“No, that’s just awesome” - Barney
These are only a couple.
It’s one of those things where if you don’t see the series, you really don’t understand a lot of the pop culture references.
I recently discovered my younger brother has never seen Star Wars. At some point this Winter Break, I will be forcing him to watch all of them (Starting with episode IV and moving on).
