BARNEY: I'm teaching Ted how to live. And, lucky you, I have room for one more student. 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 chick in this bar into bed.
TED: He's going to use force? 'Cause that sounds wrong, Broda.
BARNEY: No, the Force. It's a Star Wars reference.
TED: So we should make lots of Star Wars references around girls, that's what you're saying
[15] Spoiler Alert (#3.8) 11/12/07TED: I mean, you got used to Lily's loud chewing, right?
MARSHALL: Lily doesn't chew loudly.
TED: Come on. This isn't news. Why do you think I call her Chewbacca?
MARSHALL: I assumed because she's loyal, wears shiny belts..and I resemble a young Harrison Ford
[16] Do I Know You? (#4.1) 09/22/08 Barney's Clone Trooper!
[17] Do I Know You? (#4.1) 09/22/08 The whole episode revolves around Stella seeing Star Wars to prove if she's a good fit for Ted.
After seeing Star Wars with Ted and Marshall:
STELLA: I loved it.
TED: Yes! Yes, I am marrying a woman who is not only hot, but loves Star Wars. That's the dream. Yes! I was high-fiving 15 year-old me through the space-time continuum. *turns to self* We did it. We did it, you masturbating little bastard.
*Ted walks away* Marshall and Stella talk:
MARSHALL: You hated it, didn't you?
STELLA: It's so stupid. I mean, first of all, how do they understand that walking bear they hang around with all the time?
MARSHALL: Wookiee
STELLA: Yeah, he goes *grunts* And they're all like, 'That's a good point, Bear, let's try that.'
MARSHALL: Okay, he's a Wookiee, and his kind is actually more intelligent than they appear.
MARSHALL: Look, Stella, that is Ted's favorite movie of all time. He watches it when he's home sick with the flu. He watches it on rainy Sunday afternoons in the Fall. He watches it on Christmas Eve. Ted watches Star Wars in sickness and in health, in good times and in bad. Do you really think you can pretend to like a movie that you actually hate for the rest of your life?
STELLA: I do.
MARSHALL: Well, then, Ted's a lucky guy.
[18] Intervention (#4.4) 10/13/08 LILY: Okay, you guys finish unpacking. I'm gonna go bake some cookies to fill R2-Sweet Tooth.
[19] Happily Ever After (#4.6) 11/03/08 Ted about Stella:
TED: This is about Stella and I finally communicating. I mean, clearly, that was...
MARSHALL: Stella hated Star Wars. She lied to you. Search your feelings, Ted. You know it to be true.
[20] Not a Father's Day (#4.7) 11/10/08 At the bar:
BARNEY: I am not impressed with the talent here tonight. And the more I drink, the less attractive they get. I'm one Scotch and soda away from the cantina scene in Star Wars.
[21] Woooo! (#4.8) 11/17/08 Ted draws Barney a thank you.
TED: Now, go easy on me. It's a work in progress.
BARNEY: Ted, this is amazing. The detail. The shading. The playfulness of the lines. This is exactly what Princess Leia would look like topless.
TED: My way of saying thanks. So, you want to see my designs for the building?
BARNEY: No, I'm good.
[22] The Fight (#4.10) 12/08/08 Marshall envisioning Thanksgiving (and the use of lightsabers) a few years away:
MARSHALL: We're civilized guys. Civilized guys don't fight. Unless it's with lightsabers, but that's like three to five years away, so...
ROBIN: Well, that' snot true.
MARSHALL: Robin, I'm on the forums every day. Three to five Thanksgivings from now, I'm gonna be carving the turkey with Old Green...
[23] The Fight (#4.10) 12/08/08 A future Thanksgiving at the Erikson's:
MARSHALL: Okay, here we go. Goggles on! *ignites his green lightsaber* Alright, so, you guys pass the plates. Lily, you want white or dark meat?
[24] Three Days of Snow (#4.13) 01/19/09 Ted and Barney are behind the bare when two pretty women walk in from the snow outside:
WOMAN 1: Oh, thank God you're still here.
WOMAN 2: I don't know if you guys have ever seen Star Wars, but it's like Hoth out there.
TED *turning to Barney*: Dibs.
[25] Front Porch (#4.17) 03/16/09 Lily and Ted are talking about his past girlfriends:
LILY: Remember that weird sci-fi girl who wanted you to propose after like, two months? You barely even liked her, but you were still thinking about it, so  *cuts to Ted in line at Attack of the Clones where everyone, including Ted and Marshall are in costumes*
SCI-FI GIRL (dressed as Darth Vader): Listen, Ted, you're great, and this is so difficult, but I think we're looking for different things. *Ted as Luke looks shocked*
MARSHALL (dressed as Chewbacca): *Roars as Sci-Fi girl leaves*
[26] Right Place, Right Time (#4.22) 05/04/09HARLEN (Duerler): A hundred girls? Is that what this is about? Barney...I lied.
BARNEY: Sure you did.
HARLEN: I was 12. Of course I was lying. I didn't have a pet Ewok either.
BARNEY: Sure you didn't.
[28] Double Date (#5.2) 09/28/09 Ted, Marshall, and Barney in the car talking about the Origins of Chewbacca exhibit...
MARSHALL: Hey, do you think they'll have Wookiee-to-English dictionaries there? I mean, even just an everyday phrase book would be helpful.
BARNEY: We're not going to the Origins of Chewbacca exhibit, Marshall.  It's in Houston this year. Everyone knows that.
[29] Double Date (#5.2) 09/28/09BARNEY: Guess who just got four tickets to the Origins of Chewbacca Star Wars exhibit?
LILY: Why?
BARNEY: No, I said, "Guess who?"
ROBIN: Yeah, isn't it a little early in our relationship to do something that would end our relationship?
MARSHALL *excited*: It can be our first double date as couples! Is the original Chewbacca going to be there?
BARNEY: Peter Mayhew, in the fur.  Who's with me?
[30] The Rough Patch (#5.7) 11/09/09 First appearance of the classic Stormtrooper. Barney had a Clone Trooper in previous episodes.
LILY: We need to reignite the four biggest fights they've ever been in...Number three: the Star Wars altercation. *flashbacks to Robin and Barney arguing*
ROBIN: Isn't it time you got rid of your stupid doll?
BARNEY: It's not a doll. It's a Stormtrooper.
ROBIN: Uh...He's wearing a diaper.
BARNEY: It's not a diaper, Robin. It's protective armor.
ROBIN: Stormtrooper, more like Stormpooper.
BARNEY: Stop it!
ROBIN *makes farting noises*: Whoa! Oh! It sounds like your Stormtrooper here needs a changing.
[31] The Rough Patch (#5.7) 11/09/09 TED: What the hell is this?
LILY: They didn't have any Stormtroopers, so I had to get a different robot. This will still work.
TED: Different robot? Stormtroopers aren't robots.
LILY: Of course they're robots. *uses standard robot voice* 'Must. Kill. Luke. Skywalker.'
TED: Nobody says that in Star Wars.
LILY: Okay, so wait, wait, wait...When they blew up the Death Star, knowing full well there were thousands of Stormtroopers on it, those were people?
MARSHALL: Well, it was called the Death Star, baby.
[32] The Playbook (#5.8) 11/09/09 Barney's Stormtrooper!
[33] Of Course (#5.17) 03/08/10 Jennifer Lopez guest stars, she's in Barney's apartment where the Stormtrooper is shown.
[34] Of Course (#5.17) 03/08/10 Marshall, Lily, Ted, and Barney are coming into Barney's apartment.  Marshal knocks the helmet of the Stormtrooper down on the floor.
BARNEY: Dude, why would you do that?
MARSHALL: Because I'm angry at you! I'm angry at me!  I'm angry at Ted! And, frankly, I'm still angry at the Empire.
[35] Of course (#5.17) 03/08/10 Barney is upset that Robin has been upset...
*Barney throws up in his Stormtrooper bucket* O.O
BARNEY: I can't believe Robin's been so upset.
MARSHALL: I can't believe you threw up in your Stormtrooper helmet.
BARNEY: Eh. I did something worse in it after The Phantom Menace premiere.
[36] Cleaning House (#6.2) 09/27/10 Barney's childhood room has a Stormtrooper action figure on his dresser.
[37] Unfinished (#6.3) 10/04/10 NARRATOR: But then that night...
TED: I'm telling you, no architect would ever design a giant exposed vent...right over a Death Star's core reactor. That's Space Architecture 101.
[38] Unfinished (#6.3) 10/04/10 MARSHALL: Yes, GNB is, uh, the Empire from Star Wars, but the Death Star's gonna get built either way. And don't you think the architect of the Death Star is pretty psyched to have that thing on his space résumé?
[39] Architect of Destruction (#6.5) 10/18/10BARNEY: Why? Because new is always better.
TED: So...those new Star Wars movies...those are better than the old ones?
BARNEY: Yea. The first three barely mention the intricacies of intergalactic trade law.
[40] Baby Talk (#6.6) 10/25/10 Scene in Barney's apartment with the Stormtrooper.
[41] Legendaddy (#6.19) 03/21/2011 Marshall feels that his friends are treating him differently after his father passed away so he tests them then confesses.
MARSHALL: But nothing. so then I started to test you guys. *shows different times he tested them*
'The Phantom Menace is by far the best Star Wars movie.' *Barney gags on his drink*
BARNEY: It ages well. That's the thing. Mm-hmm.
[42] Landmarks (#6.23) 05/09/11 TED: Zoey might be the mother of my children. So in addition to doing this for John Clifford Larrabee, I'm also doing this for Luke and Leia.
LILY: She's gonna let you name your kids Luke and Leia?
TED: Not if I knock down her favorite building she isn't.  Barney, I'm sorry.
[43] The Stinson Missile Crisis (#7.4) 10/03/11 Shows a Halloween where Marshall and Lily are dressed as C3P0 & R2D2 and Ted is R2-D4.
[44] The Field Trip (#7.5) 10/10/11Gruber Pharmaceuticals is a company full of well-meaning people doing their jobs, just like you and me.
MARSHALL: Guys, I'm afraid that Garrison Cootes has gone soft! He's like a teddy bear!
TED: A teddy bear or an Ewok? You know, cute and cuddly around the village, but once the battle starts... He'll smash in your metal skull with giant swinging logs.
LILY: Marshall!
TED: Okay, he'll hug you until you agree to peaceably shut down the Death Star.
[45] The Field Trip (#7.5) 10/10/11 Barney is dating Nora and she makes a statement...
NORA: Ugh, I hate the Ewoks
*after Nora leaves the table*
BARNEY: Nora hates Ewoks. Well, I have to break up with her. Be Gentle when you tell her, guys.
LILY: Not liking Ewoks is no reason not to date somebody.
[46] The Field Trip (#7.5) 10/10/11 Barney gives a lesson on The Ewok Line during Ted's architecture class.
BARNEY: In 1983, George Lucas introduced the world to the Ewoks, (shows slides of Ewoks) a race of creatures indigenous to the second moon of Endor. Now, the Ewoks have a rich back-story that the movie didn't really go into. Ah, yes. *shows an Ewok Appreciation graphic* Ultimately, Ewoks split Star Wars fandom into two camps: those born before, and those born after May 25, 1973. The Ewok Line. Anyone born on this side of the Ewok Line was at least 10 years old when Jedi came out, and thus too old for something so cloying and cute. Anyone born on this side loved the Ewoks because, why? They reminded you of...

STUDENT: Our teddies?
BARNEY: They reminded you of your teddies *slide shows photo of Ewok = Teddy* And so, by the immutable laws of The Ewok Line, my 29 year-old girlfriend who hates Ewoks must in fact be no younger than...37.
[47] Field Trip (#7.5) 10/10/11 Barney and his date, Nora (Boniadi) are talking about Ewoks and her age.
BARNEY: Well, if you were really 29, then you would have been a little kid the first time you saw the Ewoks and you would have loved them.
NORA: Barney, I didn't see any of the Star Wars movies until last year.
BARNEY: You...you're 29!

[50] Trilogy Time (#7.20) 04/09/12 Barney is talking with the guys:
BARNEY: Anyway, while it's just us guys, let me ask you something. We've all dad that same fantasy about having sex with a girl in a Stormtooper costume, right?
TED: Mm, no.
MARSHALL: Never
BARNEY: Let's stop being polite and start gettin' real. Stormtrooper fantasy...Every guy's had that one, right?
TED: Not even once, no.
MARSHALL: No, no, no.
BARNEY: So I'm the weird one?
TED and MARSHALL: Yeah.
[51] Trilogy Time (#7.20) 04/09/12MARSHALL: I was just trying to use the Force. Do you think instead of making a beer fly out of the fridge, I made that lamp break? Either that or the Stormtrooper did.
*everyone laughs*
BARNEY: Oh, the Stormtrooper would never do that. He knows that lamp costs $1200.
[52] Trilogy Time (#7.20) 04/09/12 Barney is with a woman on his sofa, you don't see her at first:
BARNEY: Oh, that was awesome.
*woman pops up from sofa in Barney's Stormtrooper armor*
You were right, not weird. No
[53] Trilogy Time (#7.20) 04/09/12NARRATOR: Kids, here's the deal with Trilogy Time. It all started a long time ago in a dorm room far, far away...[Star Wars-esque credits say "Wesleyan The Year 2000"]
MARSHALL: Dude, if we fail this e-con final, for the rest of are lives we're not gonna be able to...*Waves hands* We won't know how to...Do you even know what E-con is?
TED: No idea, we're screwed. Well there's only one thing left to do at a time like this: watch the entire Star Wars trilogy all the way through 'cause I haven't done that in like five years!
MARSHALL: Dude, you can't let that happen. If you're not trilling it at least once every three years, the dark side wins.
TED: Okay, let's make a pact. No matter what, every three years, we sit down and trill it up big time. Agreed?
MARSHALL: A-Greedo.
[54] Trilogy Time (#7.20) 04/09/12 TED to Marshall: You're not going anywhere. It's trilogy time.
[55] Trilogy Time (#7.20) 04/09/12NARRATOR: In the summer of 2009, Barney and Robin were secretly dating.
TED: Oh, Barney said she's taking some extension class on how to decoupage and Barney's taking a different decoupage class in the same building- that's why they shared a cab that one time.
NARRATOR: We were idiots.
MARSHALL: Wait a minute. You're saying that Barney Stinson is at a decoupage class? That means we can watch Star Wars on his giant TV!
TED: Punch it, Chewy!
[56] Trilogy Time (#7.20) 04/09/12 Robin and Barney are seeing each other without the others knowing, she is in his Stormtrooper armor and they are almost going to live out Barney's Stormtrooper fantasy. Ted and Marshall show up at Barney's apartment while Robin is there. Robin isn't ready to reveal their relationship to the others. Barney convinces her to stay hidden in the costume:
ROBIN *whispering*: Get me out of this thing!
BARNEY: There's no time!
ROBIN: Barney, I am not ready for them to find out about us.
BARNEY: Then you're gonna have to stay in there for the entire trilogy...Don't worry..It's only 382 minutes.
ROBIN: Nerd!
[57] Trilogy Time (#7.20) 04/09/12 Ted about to sit down with the baby and watch the trilogy:
TED: Okay, you are about to see something awesome.
BARNEY (to the baby): And just know this...Han shot first.

TED: Is that R2-D2? ...Do you like Star Wars?
CARLY: I love Star Wars
TED: Me, too! *they kiss*
CARLY: I mean, I've only seen the new ones.
TED: Close enough.
[63] Bad Crazy (#8.16) 02/11/13 Barney and Marshall buy things that they can't keep at their own homes (supposedly because Robin and Lily don't know they've spent money buying the items and they have to keep them in storage at Ted's place...because he's single.)
One thing that Barney had to store at Ted's was a life-sized Boba Fett.
[64] Bad Crazy (#8.16) 02/11/13 Ted dresses as Boba Fett to try to get rid of his crazy girlfriend, Jeanette.
[65] The Bro Mitzvah (#8.22) 04/29/13 BARNEY: Shut it, Ralph Macchio! Why don't you go have a party with Luke Skywalker, and Harry Potter, and War Horse, and all the other movie bad guys..and stop ruining mine!
[66] Coming Back (#9.2) 09/23/13 On Marshall getting another flight back home:

BARNEY: There is no try!
[67] Knight Vision (#9.6) 10/21/13 Ted has three possibly wedding date choices in this Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade reference (tinged with a smattering of The Empires Strikes Back)


"You chose...poorly."
[68] Mom and Dad (#9.10) 11/18/13 When their mom gets back together with James' father, instead of Barney's father,
BARNEY: I've been dreaming of that since I was five. Well, that, and my own operational Death Star.  But mostly them getting back together...why does James get it and I don't?
[69] Unpause (#9.15) 01/20/14 Ted had always said that he'd name his kids Luke and Leia. In a conversation with his future son in the car about the 2am rule:
TED: 2am, it's a good rule. But every rule has an exception. And for us, that exception was you, Luke.
[70] Unpause (#9.15) 01/20/14 Barney (drunk before his wedding) speaks like Jabba the Hutt.
[71] Sunrise (#9.17) 02/03/14 Ted is having a conversation with Stella, he is trying to get back a locket which belongs to Robin, he believes Stella has it.
TED: You know what's weird? Not seeing Star Wars until you're 30!
STELLA: You're trying to blow up the wedding!
TED: You called C-3P0 the Tin Man!
STELLA: He's made of Tin!
TED: Tatooine scrap metal!  This is not an argument you are going to win.
