Jim put down his coffee and looked at Ryan. There was confusion in his eyes and his hand trembled a little.

"What do you mean you've never seen Star Wars? Everybody's seen Star Wars!"
"Well, I haven't. Never saw it as a kid, never saw it as an adult. I think I've seen some scenes on the internet or on television, but I hardly remember those."
"What do you mean you hardly remember those?!"

Jim slammed the table.

"Damn it, Ryan, this is one of the most iconic movies ever!"
"Okay! Fine! I remember one thing."

Ryan put his hand to his mouth and spoke in a massively flawed attempt at Darth Vader.

"Luke, I am your daddy."

Ryan put his hand down again and smiled.

Jim picked up his coffee, got up, looked at Ryan with contempt and walked towards the break room exit.

"You're dead to me, Ryan. Dead," he said before walking out.

Ryan shrugged and filled his cup with fresh coffee. Of course he'd seen Star Wars. He just didn't like Jim very much.
