Everything I Know About Parenting I Learned From Return of the Jedi

Filed under: Fun  · 2 Comments

While watching Return of the Jedi the other day, I noticed how much their universe relates to ours. Darth Vader could be a grouchy dad with disobedient kids and Princess Leia a spoiled brat. C-3PO is the know-it-all kid, yours or the one next door, that is always complaining about something and always has an answer to your questions. With that in mind, I present some quotes from the movie relating to situations in the world of parenting.

VADER: The Emperor does not share your optimistic appraisal of the situation.
And neither will your father when he gets home.

VADER: That is correct, Commander. And he is most displeased with your apparent lack of progress.
So clean up the damn living room already!

NINEDENINE: You’re a feisty little one, but you’ll soon learn some respect.
But probably not until they are 35 years old.

JABBA: Soon you will learn to appreciate me.
Again, only when they are 35.

YODA: Hmm. That face you make. Look I so old to young eyes?
So I didn’t know what Twitter was, give me a break!

YODA: No more training do you require. Already know you that which you need.
Except how to do a keg stand. But now that they are leaving for college, don’t fool yourself, they will learn it.

LUKE: Search your feelings, father. You can’t do this. I feel the conflict within you.
So please let me borrow the car!
