Uno stupido che cammina va più lontano di dieci intellettuali seduti (Jacques Séguéla)

Il giornalista è stimolato dalla scadenza. Scrive peggio se ha tempo. (Karl Kraus)

Star_Wars_The_Force_Awakens_Theatrical_PosterNota bene: quando ho tempo le traduco….magari faccio un work-in-progress, basta che promettete di guardare Star Wars solo in lingua originale… Se proprio non riuscite a vederlo in un paese di lingua inglese attentedete il DVD! Just my advice….

It goes without saying…. che non ho voluto togliere le battute con Leonard Nimoy, lo Spock di Star Trek (just in case you are wondering).


Amy: That would be my boyfriend. Happier playing his dopey Star Trek game with his friends than hanging out with me
Penny: Wars.
Amy: What?
Penny: Star Wars. They get all cranky when you mix the two up.
Amy: What’s the difference?
Penny: There is absolutely no difference!

Sheldon: Why do I need you now?
Arthur: Well, as near as I can tell. You fell asleep watching Star Wars and now you’re dreaming you’re watching Star Wars.
Sheldon: So?
Arthur: Don’t you see a problem there? How you’re spending your limited time on earth?
Sheldon: Not at all.
Arthur: Okay. Good luck to you.

Raj: So Star Trek and Star Wars characters can go on the same branch?
Leonard: I know, it’s crazy. Welcome to the Thunderdome, people!

James Earl Jones: Let me guess. You like Star Wars.
*Sheldon nods*
James Earl Jones: You know I’ve been in other movies.
*Sheldon nods*
James Earl Jones: But you don’t care about those, do you?
*Sheldon shakes his head*
*James Earl Jones signals for Sheldon to come closer*
James Earl Jones: I have one thing to say to people like you. I like Star Wars too! Care to join me?

Sheldon: I’m working on the Star Wars day schedule. Now, I have a window built in, after Phantom Menace, for complaining. But I’m worried an hour won’t be enough time.

Raj: Come on, Sheldon, Star Wars.
Howard: I’m pushing play. I mean it. If we don’t start soon, George Lucas is going to change it again.

Sheldon: We’re gonna have to stop at Pottery Barn on our way to work. I bought these Star Wars sheets, but they turned out to be much too stimulating to be compatible with a good night’s sleep. I don’t like the way Darth Vader stares at me.

Sheldon: Arthur Jeffries was a scientist. I’m sure he didn’t care about stupid superstitions like funerals. If he were here, I think he’d say “Enjoy Star Wars day”.
Leonard: He was eighty-four. He’d say “Where’s my pudding?”

Penny: We won.
Leonard: Oh, that’s excellent. It’s a weird figure of speech, isn’t it? We won, when you weren’t actually playing. When we watch Star Wars, we don’t say we defeated the empire.
Penny: I’m glad to hear it.

Sheldon: Who is going to drive me to work?
Leonard: You’re a big boy you’ll figure something out.
Sheldon: Don’t talk to me like I’m a child. Now take me to return my Star Wars sheets.

Leonard: We don’t have an appointment. And we don’t belong here, but we’re like crazy big fans. Crazy for Star Wars crazy, not like we have a backpack full of duct tape. Although we do have a backpack that you really don’t want to look in.

Leonard: The funeral’s on Sunday.
Sheldon: But that’s Star Wars day.
Leonard: Yeah. Off all the things about this that are sad, that might not be number one.

Raj: Hey, want to spend some time playing the new Star Wars game this weekend?
Leonard: Oh, I don’t know. I kinda promised myself I’d get off the computer, be more physically active, get some exercise.
Howard: You’re about to walk up three flights of stairs.
Leonard: Good point. I’m in.

Sheldon: I’m sorry but I’m not going to watch the Clone Wars TV Series until I’ve seen the Clone Wars movie. I prefer to let George Lucas disappoint me in the order he intended.

*Raj comes in playing Darth Vader’s background music from Star Wars*
Leonard: Would you please turn your shirt off?
Raj: What? I’m giving myself dramatic entrance music. People will know I’m awesome and to be feared.
Wolowitz: Right. There’s nothing more awesome and frightening than a man who’s got music blasting from between his nipples.

Penny: “Do or do not do there is no try.”
Leonard: My girlfriend quoted Star Wars.
Penny: I believe I quoted The Empire Strikes Back.

Raj: Hey, Penny. Happy Star Wars day!
Penny: Okay.

Barry Kripke: Gentlemen, welcome to the fencing club. Before we start, I just want to warn you, fencing isn’t a joke. I hope you’re not here because you think it’s going to be like Star Wars.
Leonard: That’s not why we’re here.
Raj: Yeah, I’m here because I think it’s gonna be like Game of Thrones.
Howard: And maybe a little Princess Bride.
Raj: Ooh, ooh! I forgot about Princess Bride! That’s my answer!

Leonard: How can 5 not be worse than 1?
Raj: Yeah, Star Trek 5 worse than 1.
Sheldon: Okay, first of all that is a comparison of quality not intensity. Secondly, Star Trek 1 is orders of magnitude worse than Star Trek 5.
Raj: Are you joking? Star Trek 5 is the standard against which all badness is measured.

Leonard: It will be like our World of Warcraft party a few years ago when the neighbors called the cops on us.
Howard: They called the cops because of the smell. They thought we were dead.
Raj: We were badass back in the day.
Leonard: All right, let’s do it.
Howard: 48 hours of Star Wars gaming.
Raj: It’s on like Alderaan.

Leonard: Star Wars on Blu-ray.
Penny: Haven’t you seen that movie like a thousand times?
Leonard: Not on Blu-ray. Only twice on Blu-ray.
Penny: Oh, Leonard.
Leonard: I know, it’s high resolution sadness.

Adam Nimoy: And what is your earliest memory of the character Spock?
Sheldon: The first episode of Star Trek: The Original Series I ever saw was “The Galileo Seven.” Uh, Spock had just landed on the planet Taurus II.
Then my brother came in, sat on my head, and said, “Eat farts.” After that day, I was hooked.
On Star Trek, not my brother’s sphincter-based cuisine.
