One of the side effects of having your wife watch enough Star Wars - it's an offshoot of the Jedi Mind Trick. A wife performs the Jedi wife trick, by simply saying something to her husband that causes her husband to do her will. It's sometimes accompanied with the hand motion that Obi Wan used on the Storm Troopers in Episode IV.
Husband: My buddies and I are going to go shoot some pool over at Pool Hall X.
Wife: (with hand motion) You do not want to go out with your buddies.
Husband: I do not want to go out with my buddies.
Wife: You do not want to play pool.
Husband: I do not want to play pool.
Wife: These aren't the droids you're looking for.
Husband: These aren't the droids we're looking for.
Wife: You want to clean the kitchen.
Husband: I want to clean the kitchen.
Husband calls one of the buddies.
Husband: Sorry, I think I'd rather clean the kitchen and not play pool tonight.
Buddy: Damn, your wife pulled the Jedi wife trick again.
Buddy 2:(In background) That woman's a Jedi master.
