This Thanksgiving holiday, Star Wars fans on Twitter decided to celebrate by posting their favorite movie quotes with a festive food twist in the #StarWarsThanksgiving meme.

Here’s some of our favorites:

What is thy basting, my Master? – via @dracoboy

Let the turkey win. – via @gskull

Laugh it up, Butterball. – via @goodhands

May the fork be with you. – via @adventureran

I’d just as soon kiss a turkey. – @adventureran

Stuffing leads to Mashed Potatoes. Mashed Potatoes leads to Gravy. Gravy leads to Turkey. – via @H_Factor73

It’s as if millions of green beans cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced. – via @cstephens2

I can’t see him! I can’t Shake ‘n Bake him! – via @ellingson

Flying through hyperspace ain’t like stuffing turkeys, kid. – via @TJ_Will

I recognized your fowl stench when I was brought in board. – via @chadhunter

Uncle Bob doesn’t like you. I don’t like you either. – via @CatRey

Away put your congealed cranberry sauce shaped like a can, I mean you no harm. – via @apelad

Many turkeys died to bring us this meal. – via @rachel_renegade

These aren’t the mashed potaoes you’re looking for. – via @jennsaysmeow

Great pie, kid! That was one in a million! – via @weaselbacon

Judge this turkey by its size, would you? – via @weaselbacon

I find your lack of faith in cranberry sauce disturbing. – via @ohbjuan

If you only knew the power of the Dark Meat! – via ObiWanKenoclue

These are not the yams you are looking for. – @rockandrollgary

I find your lack of pie disturbing. – via @welshmnky

Han Solo: “Great, always thinking with your stomach!” – via @StJoeFreePress

Nice turkey. Either I’m beginning to like it, or I’m going to kill it! – via @TheHalcyon

Hmpf. Turkey. Heh. Stuffing. A Jedi craves not these things. – via @Liinuh

Myself, the boy, 2 droids and do you want us to bring anything? Some wine, maybe? – via @odin42

I am altering the meal. Pray I don’t alter it further. – via darthvader
