Star Wars: The Clone Wars Episode Opening Quotes

Being unemployed gives one free time to do anything. Naturally, I’m re-watching a mediocre Star Wars show on Netflix. Each episode of Star Wars: The Clone Wars opens with the John Williams’ Star Wars Theme and a short quote that serves as the episode’s motif (pictured).

Especially if you have plot armor.An example of an opening quote from the series Star Wars: The Clone Wars

The show isn’t terrible; after Season 1 the episodes become pretty palatable and there’s some decent humor and drama interspersed throughout. Not required viewing for Star Wars fans but certainly an easy way to burn a weekend or four. Since I’m devoid of other commitments presently I figured that if I’m watching the series again anyways, I may as well provide a service while doing so. The full list of opening quotes doesn’t appear to be available online elsewhere so this can be my contribution to the galactic knowledge base.
