This movie sees a galactic battle between the forces of a small group of resistance fighters and an evil empire. In this particular scene, the lines are spoken by Princess Leia to Luke Skywalker, who, in his disguise as one of the evil Emperor’s soldiers, has come to rescue her from the detention block on the Death Star where she has been incarcerated.

Tuesday’s Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from??? “Go ahead, make my day.”
Monday’s Quizzler is……
Down these long canals they’ve made
Tame, yet wild, I run elusive
Multitasking to your aid.
Before I came, the world was darker
Colder, sometimes, rougher, true
But though I might make living easy,
I’m good at killing people too.
Tuesday’s Quizzler is…….
A different fruit (a total of twelve) is buried in every one of the following lines.
Example: A word is considered ‘buried’ when it can be read like P A R I S in the sentence “Grand-pa(pa ris)es at seven every morning.”
Can you detect them?
Ah! If I get my good ship home
I’ll find a tempting spot,
Where mayhap pleasant flowers will bloom,
And there I’ll shape a charming cot.
Where bees sip nectar in each flower,
And Philomel on hawthorn rests,
I’ll shape a rustic, sun-kissed bower –
A bower meet for angel guests.
Then she who lives and loves with me,
Sing our days of calm repose,
Sole monarch of the flowers will be –
For Myra is indeed a rose.
