Allusion to Star Wars

Great it’s a “ackbar its a trap allusion” in the last episode

As a Wookie I have another one : Its not wise to upset a Wookie :bear: or a Russian :bear::joy::smiling_imp:. Just ask Napoleon.

Not sure if you can weave it into an episode.

Tanks Drivers in North Africa: I don’t like sand, it’s course rough, and irritating, and it gets everywhere.
I was rewatching The Great War and noticed Indy said this relating to British tank drivers in the Palestine Front and there was a picture of Anakin with the WW1 British.
The Italian Soldiers defending El Alamein as the Germans retreated:
The Italian soldiers felt a great disturbance in the force, and suddenly millions of grains of sand were driven over by British Tanks.
Another one for when the Allies attempt to go a bridge too far in Operation Market Garden:
Allied Paratroopers: I feel like I can take on the whole Empire myself
It’s also worth noting that some of the actors from Empire Strikes Back were in the movie A Bridge Too Far.

Allies: My allegiance is to democracy!
Axis: If you’re not with me, then you’re my enemy.
Allies: Only a Hitlerite deals in absolutes. I will do what I must.
Axis: You will try.

If you change it to “disturbing”, then Stalin and the Axis, of course.

And, to a lesser extent, Roosevelt.

No, no, no. Quicker. Easier. More seductive.
