Scene: Earlier this week. My car, on the way to school. Son #3 and classmate/carpool companion in the backseat, engaging in a mock Star Wars battle.
Son #3: (whacking his friend with an imaginary light sabre) I'm Darth Maul! I shall kill you! (thwhack!)
Carpool Kid: I'm Darth Vader, I shall kill YOU! (THWACK!)
Son #3: Well, I'm Darth Sion! I shall kill YOU! (THWACK THWACK THWACK!)
Me: (in best mock Patient Earthmother type voice, pretending they're four instead of twelve years old) Now now Darths, no hitting. Use your words.

Son #3: I'm Darth Thesaurus. I shall kill you with my words!
