Hey, nerds need love, too.

Just because you're a Trekkie or can name every township in Middle Earth doesn't mean you don't need a little something to make that hot muggle across the bar (or at the next booth over at Comicon) laugh. Here are 10 pick-up lines that'll give you a shot to, ahem, Slytherin to bed with someone.

10. Excuse me, but I'm having trouble walking. I think I've fallen harder for you than Bran Stark.

If they don't understand this one, they should probably stay out of Westeros. Game of Thrones references wouldn't have worked a few years ago, but you might be able to find your own Khal/Khaleesi using this line.

Alternative: Hodor Hodor Hodor? Hodor!

9. Are you using the Confundus charm or are you just naturally mind-blowing?

With all of the Harry Potter lines out there, you're going to have to do better than a simple wand joke if you want to keep anyone's attention. Plus, this one's way more complimentary than asking to see their, ahem, Chamber of Secrets.

Alternative: I'm just like Oliver Wood, baby. I'm a Keeper, but I might just let you score.

8. I'm no Star Lord, but you've got my pelvic sorcery hooked on a feeling.

It'd be a bold move to pull out a Rocket Raccoon line, but if you're a few drinks in and feeling pretty good about yourself, go for it. Until then, what superhero movie had better innuendo and humor than Guardians of the Galaxy? None.

Alternative: I am Groot. (Come on, it works for anything.)

7. You look more like a Romulan, but I'd mind meld with you any day.

While it might take a serious Trekkie to know that Romulans and Vulcans share an ancestry but don't share the telepathic ability to mind meld, it'll probably work wonders on anyone who does. If it doesn't, may they live long and prosper anyway.

Alternative: Mumble some horrible sounding nonsense and tell them it's Klingon for "I find you very attractive. Would you care to see my kingdom?"
