    Darth Vader: And the Empire will be defeated... by Ewoks!
    Luke: That's... (totally lost) highly unlikely.
    Darth Vader: And as a child, I built C-3PO!
    Luke: (completely stony-faced with confusion)...Huh?
    (Later, with Vader sipping coffee and Luke smoking a cigarette)
    Darth Vader: (matter-of-factly) And the Force? Well, that's just microscopic bacteria in your bloodstream called midichlorians.

  • How about the InuYasha sketch? Weirdest Batman Gambit ever.
