To eradicate a whole group of people. From Star Wars III: Revenge of the Sith when Darth Palpatine ordered the genocide of all Jedi in order to ensure the Sith's possesion of the Republic.
"Damn our team just got Order 66'ed"
"He just got order 66'ed"
's Commando Order (Kommandobefehl in German) that was secretly distributed to high command, ordering that all irregulars (ie. commandos) captured be handed over to the Sicherheitsdienst (SD: intelligence arm of the SS) for interrogation and execution.
Used in common speech as a reference to eradicating a group of (usually valiant) people.
It has recently surfaced in popular culture in the George Lucas
film Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, when Emperor Palpatine orders his Stormtroopers to "execute order 66", which is the instruction to kill all Jedi.
"The bastard put an order 66 on his friends."
Quite possibly the greatest words ever said in a movie, "Order 66." Order 66 is the murder of all remaining Jedi placed by Emperor Palpatine. Watching one Jdi after another get slaughtered is one of the most fulfilling things I've ever seen. Bow down to your Dark Lord you weakling.
Darth Sidious: Execute order sixty-six.
Clone General: It will be done, my Lord.
To pwn somebody who's seen Star Wars Episode III.
Dinks: Who locked me out?!
Me: Dude you got Order 66'd.
An order that came after 65 and before 67.This order said to kill off all Jedi of any and all ranks.The fucked up thing is that these guys are supposed to be so smart,but got their asses played for 3 straight movies,not to mention they didnt see any of this shit coming.The enemy was a bunch of half-retarded droids.How the fuck would they organize an army?!
2.What is yelled when nerds at a burger joint notice that the order ticket for a customer has the number 66 on it,in a nerdy reference to star wars.
1.I'm such a dumbfuck!That asshole executed Order 66!
2.HOLY SHIT!THAT TRUCKER GOT ORDER 66!
When a team turns against their leader, who is right, to incur favor with someone higher in the command chain. This references "Order Sixty-Six" in Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith, when the emporer issues the order for the soldiers to turn against the Jedi.
Even though Vince had come up with a better proposal, the rest of the team Order 66ed him when the director disagreed. Now we're stuck using the directors plan.
