Notes

Film

  • Starts with Wedge going in, and goes to Lando worrying that that was "too close".
  • A bunch of spaceships flying in a shaft.
  • Two new Rebel pilots.
  • Wedge's real voice.
  • Second appearance of the Falcon's headlights.
  • Fake-out as we fly into the open shaft.
    • Masterful camera control.
  • The Falcon's radar dish gets knocked off.
  • First time that the word "TIE fighter" is used.

Podcast

  • What is the hole that all the ships fly down for?
  • It's ridiculous that the Falcon can fit inside the shaft, but we're glad to see it in action.
  • Matte paintings in Star Wars movies.
  • Nien Nunb's dialog.
  • The Nien Nunb puppet. Mentioned: The ROTJ Rebel pilot cut footage.
  • The strongest power source should be the main power generator. Unless it's the Emperor.
  • Rebel pilots. Mentioned Star Wars Rebels
  • Favorite Star Wars ships?
  • Mentioned: Wrong show. Referenced: Mr Show - Monsters of Megaphone.
  • How Simon Pegg's daughter saved Star Wars.
  • Lando's promise that the Falcon wouldn't get a scratch.
  • The pacing in Star Wars, especially when compared to modern movies
  • Learning the "proper" names for things from the toy commercials.
  • Lando has taken over the role of Han Solo. He gets to drive the cool car.
    • Setting up spin-offs because of contract disputes.
  • "Cat-people".
  • Rachel and Songe will be back tomorrow.
  • Support the Show on social media and with money.

Meta Minute

  • 33:29 podcast episode length.
  • 8-DAY-GREEDO call from Jason in Denver. Imitating Lando's pronunciation of "too close".
  • According to Wookieepedia, the Cloud car was an atmospheric vehicle, so they do not count as spaceships.
  • When they brought up the number of actors to play Wedge on the big screen before, they determined there were a total of three, if you count Fake Wedge.
  • The first time that the Falcon's headlights went on, the hosts didn't bring it up.
  • This is the minute the hosts will reference when it is later revealed that the Falcon has a new radar dish in TFA.

Quotes

  • Songe: I am Songe Riddle, from "Russia with Love".
  • Alex: (paraphrasing Sidney Poitier in In the Heat of the Night) They call me "Mister Ackbar!"
  • Rachel: Speaking of pulling a knob...
  • Rachel then Pete: (sounding very similar to the Mouse droid) "Phil Tippett. Tippett."
  • Pete: "Simon Pegg made him shoot things." That defense is not going to hold up.
  • Pete: What's his [Green 4's] name? "Steve Johnson"?
