26. “I Have A Bad Feeling About This” Is Spoken In Every Film And Most Books

A running gag throughout all six — and soon to be seven — films in the franchise is the line “I have a bad feeling about this.” It’s spoken for the first time in A New Hope by both Luke Skywalker and Han Solo.

Since 1977, the line has popped up in self referential fashion in every single theatrical Star Wars movie.

The Phantom Menace: It’s the first line of dialog that Obi-Wan speaks in the very first scene of the movie.

Attack of the Clones: Anakin says it during the Geonosis arena battle sequence.

Revenge of the Sith: Obi-Wan says it as Anakin flies them towards a large battleship hangar bay in the opening battle scene.

Empire Strikes Back: Leia utters the line when the Millennium Falcon is in the belly of the astroid monster.

Return of the Jedi: The line is said twice. The first time is when C-3PO and Artoo land on Tatooine and approach Jabba’s palace. The second time is when Han is on Endor following the group’s capture by the Ewoks.
