It's been almost 40 years since the first Star Wars movie hit screens, and since then the phenomenon has gotten bigger and bigger, reaching galaxies far, far away. The force is strong with this one and it’s only going to get stronger when Star Wars: The Force Awakens premieres on December 18, a decade after the last one was released.

Even if you've never seen a minute of any of the movies, you probably know the major plot points and iconic characters thanks to your friends or relatives who are fans, or the TV shows and movies you watch. Below are some of the best Star Wars references in recent pop culture—feel free to add to the list in the comments!

 1  Modern Family. We wouldn't be surprised if Phil named his son Luke just so he could say this iconic quote.
