#BEDM Day 4 - Star Wars Day!


Day 4 of Rosalilium’s 'Blog Every Day in May' Challenge


I wasn't sure what to write for this one, I wouldn't say I'm a huge Sci-Fi geek; I like it but that's about as far as it goes. So full credit to the other half for thinking of something to meet today's challenge.


HG Wells Stories



So here you go (courtesy of Andrew) - a look at how Sci-Fi has managed to infiltrate our everyday language - how many of these do you find yourself saying?


Beam me up Scotty

42

Help me {replace with appropriate name}, you're my only hope

Don't forget your towel!

I am your father

Exterminate

Live long and prosper

(and of course...) Phone home



I'm sure you all know exactly where they're from but I'll ask the question anyway - name the film? :-)

  1. What's the third quote from? I know all the others (which I am rather surprised by, as I don't like Sci Fi much at all). Just saw my logo in your sidebar too :) Eep! xxx

    1. The third one is from Star Wars, Episode IV (A New Hope).

      "Help me, Obi-Wan Kenobi. You're my only hope."

    1. Haha, I didn't think I knew very many but it's suprising how many you do know when you start thinking about it! :-) x

    1. Thanks Michelle! Also, a "serious sci-fi problem" - sounds a little bit like something you might get a cream for! :-) xx

Thank you very much for all your lovely comments; I do have every intention of replying but sometimes life with a baby gets in the way...
