Han Solo shot first.

Who shot first?" is a phrase used by Star Wars fans to refer to a controversial change made to a scene in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. In the original theatrical version of the film, Solo shoots Greedo under the table and Greedo dies without firing a shot. The scene was modified for the 1997 re-release to feature Han using his weapon in retaliation after Greedo fires at him; the latter rather implausibly missing Han at point-blank range (<2 meters away). Thus, the phrase "Who shot first?" is a retort to director George Lucas' explicit cinematographic assertion that "Greedo shot first.
Peter: I saw episode IV the other day, and I swear Greedo didn't shoot first in the original. Who shot first?

James (fanboy): Han Solo shot first.
