  • Gone too soon.
Asterios ROTJ memories
 He caught onto Star Wars later in life, which is surprising considering how into Star Trek he is. He first saw ROTJ as a remastered VHS before the Special Editions.
 Asterios doesn't care for the Jabba's sail barge massacre, unlike most other guests. It sets a strange tone, and isn't a "more elegant weapon".
 Luke being more at risk of turning to the Dark side. Parallel to Anakin murdering the Tusken Raiders in Episode II.
  • Fighting non-Jedi with your lightsaber.
  • One way or another, everybody left on Jabba's barge is toast.
  • Plug for the upcoming live show at Star Wars Celebration, and SWM on social media.

Meta Minute

  • 26:22 podcast episode length.
  • Cold open: plug for John Ingle and "Dodd Skalle".
  • Yoda's race and birthplace have never been revealed in either canonical or E.U. sources. However, some fans have come to know them as "Yodans" and "Yodaria", respectively.
  • E.G.O.T. stands for "Emmy", "Grammy", "Oscar", and "Tony". To earn your EGOT is to win the major award given for performance in each of the following: Television, Music, Movie, and Theater, respectively.

Quotes

  • Pete: What, you want to go live in a world with holographic pornography? Alex: Wait, come back!
  • Alex: <in response to Asterios getting a Star Wars-related fact wrong> We'll edit it out, we'll protect your cred. We'll edit it out. Asterios: Thank you. Phew! Pete: *whispering* We're not going to edit that out.
  • Alex: "Jediewok".
  • Pete: Here's my Jedi card.
