Start with the phrase Yes, your fat ma is hers and perform the following steps, in some order, to find a famous quote:

  • Rearrange the words.
  • Remove a single letter from one word.
  • Reverse one word.
  • Remove one space.
  • Replace one word by its antonym.
  • Remove a single letter from one word.

The answer is:

No, I am your father.

Steps:

Starting Phrase - Yes, your fat ma is hers.
First, take an antonym - No, your fat ma is hers.
Second, reverse - No, your fat am is hers.
Then, remove one letter - No, Your fat am I hers
Then, rearrange - No, I am your fat hers
Remove the last letter of "hers" - No, I am your fat her
Finally, remove one space - No, I am your father

This quote is from:

Star Wars - The Empire Strikes Back

    $\begingroup$ Conclusively proving that the quote is not 'Luke, I am your father'. (how does Rand know this? He's never watched SW.) $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @Mithrandir Perhaps unfortunately, I've spent enough time on a certain sci-fi website to have picked up a lot of info like this by osmosis :-) Also, spoilers! $\endgroup$ Commented Feb 19, 2017 at 11:58
