Space pessimists

If you get a vague sense of déjà vu while listening to the dialogue in any given installment of the Star Wars movies, there's a reason: every episode contains at least one variation of the line "I have a bad feeling about this."

It all started with the back-to-back utterances in the 1977 original, Star Wars: Episode VI – A New Hope. Luke Skywalker lamented the Millennium Falcon's approach of the Death Star by saying, "I have a very bad feeling about this," and then Han Solo echoed his note of concern while trapped in a trash compactor by saying, "I got a bad feeling about this." Ever since, it's become something of a running joke and has made way into each subsequent film (so far) by way of various characters. Most recently, in Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens, Han uttered his classic line one more time, repeating the exact phrasing from his first mission with the Rebel Alliance.
