It’s widely accepted that UFOs exist, and yet May the 4th is still not a holiday. As a (meager) consolation, we’ve pulled together some Star Wars quotes that could be amazing email replies or signatures. A special shout-out to Lisa James and Ratul Shah for co-piloting this post.

From laughter to loss, fright to fearlessness, and mechanical-fisted reigns to rebellion, we’ve got you covered when it comes to intergalactic corporate warfare and peace.

If you strike me down I shall become more powerful than you can possibly imagine: Email replies for your mortal work nemesis

Every story has a villain and hero – and when told from the opposing side of view, it could be hard to determine which character is which. The same holds true in the world of work, where employees strategize about how to win The Great Turf Wars, each PowerPoint created to be more powerful than the last.

Along the way, sometimes you find your one true nemesis – and if you do, we’ve been told these would be amazing Star Wars email replies:

  1. “The ability to speak does not make you intelligent.” Qui-Gon Jinn, The Phantom Menace
  2. “Congratulations. You are being rescued.” K-2SO, Rogue One
  3. “Then I will see you in Hell.”
    Han Solo, The Empire Strikes Back

  4. “Don’t be too proud of this technological terror you’ve constructed. The ability to destroy a planet is insignificant next to the power of the Force.” Darth Vader, A New Hope
  5. “Finish this? Who do you think you’re talking to?” General Hux, The Last Jedi
  6. “Hello there.” Obi Wan, A New Hope
  7. “Yeah, I’m responsible now; the price you pay for being successful.” Lando Calrissian, The Empire Strikes Back
  8. “Be careful not to choke on your aspirations, director.”
    Darth Vader, Rogue One
