My prediction: forever. Not sure we would recognize their star wars, though ... "Han shot first" pale in comparison to what will next generations do with it when they will be doing holographic version. -- Hkmaly (talk) 08:50, 9 September 2013 (UTC)

The idea of this makes me sad. --DanB (talk) 13:09, 9 September 2013 (UTC)

(Oh, hello, edit conflict. Anyway...) Assuming that humanity is (collectively) doomed to die off at some point in the possibly distant future, through natural cateclism, external interference or some form of self-inflicted destruction, there 'will' be a last time for every saying and quote, in their original form or morphed into the dialect/language of the future. Thus someone will say some form or other of "May the force be with you" on one final occasion, although whether it outlives (just) "Don't tell me the odds" and/or "I've got a bad feeling about this!" is a question for another day. ;) 13:16, 9 September 2013 (UTC)

Sadly, those last two examples will no doubt long outlive MTFBWY, if for no other reason than people will use them "accidentally" in casual conversation. In terms of conscious use of a Star Wars references, I'd like to think that MTFBWY would outlast them all... -- Nonnal (talk) 13:25, 9 September 2013 (UTC)

Aww. Steven Wright started the thought. I thought Randall had come up with a clever way to signal the "end" of a quote, it's death, by saying unquote!  :¬I But doesn't that also resurect the quote! Damn!ExternalMonolog (talk) 21:13, 9 September 2013 (UTC)ExternalMonolog

Will someone please edit that misspelled "resurrect"? ExternalMonolog (talk) 21:16, 9 September 2013 (UTC)ExternalMonolog

Typing from a phone, but the title text is very likely from Neil Gaiman's recent book, The Ocean at the End of the Lane, where numerous references to a mythical "Old Country" are made. Randall seems like a Gaiman fan. Sorry for not abiding by appropriate edit/comment rules. (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)
