Here, have a look at Sally Forth from the last couple of days:
So Ted has a new job, and is having a tough time making friends at the office, up until he meets As-Yet-Nameless Attractive Female Dork. Obviously, and is instantly smitten with her knowledge of ’80s Star Wars rip-offs. Well and good, and not just a little mind-blowing to see two references in as many days to the beloved films of my childhood in a mainstream newspaper comic strip about, like, y’know, grownups and stuff.
Anyway…what the hell kind of quote is “We shall see, Xur. We shall see.”? Other than the reference to Xur, nothing makes it distinctive or memorable, certainly not quotable. I’d say the closest that movie comes to quotable is the final exchange between Bad Guy 1 and Bad Guy 2 after Luke has used the Force to hit the exhaust port Alex has done whatever it was he did to destroy the enemy ship – “What do we do now?!” “We die.”
Beyond that, who goes around throwing out quotes from obscure, dorky ’80s movies, anyway? Does Ted Forth just so thoroughly exude Nerd Vibes that As-Yet-Nameless Attractive Female Dork knew without asking that she’d found a kindred spirit? I mean, “Use the Force, Luke” isn’t totally out there with a stranger. But, “We shall see, Xur?” Who does that?
