    • Hardison: This is not the room you're looking for.

      Referencing the Star Wars series and the Jedi Knights. The Jedi Knights are the "good" protectors of the galaxy, capable of tapping into the mystic Force to gain a variety of powers such as mind control and telekinesis. They avoid strong emotion, which can lead them to the Dark Side, the "evil" side of the Force. The Jedi and the Force are first mentioned in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope (1977). The women in gold bikinis refer to Princess Leia, who goes undercover as a slave, wearing a similar outfit, in Star Wars VI: Return of the Jedi, and they're wielding light sabers, the preferred weapon of Force users. Hardison's line refers to a similar line, "These are not the droids you're looking for," used to mind control stormtroopers in A New Hope.
