Jar Jar opens his mouth in surprise, and the frog snaps away, ricochets around the market, and lands in Sebulba's soup, splashing him.


Paul Scheer



  • Starts with Jar Jar tonguing some food, and ends with Anakin explaining about Dugs.
  • Gragra
    • She is a Swokes Swokes (her species) and works as a Gorgmonger (gorgs are the amphibians she sells).
    • She never does get paid for the Gorg that Jar Jar tried to steal.
  • We meet Sebulba.


  • To Paul, this scene encapsulates everything that is wrong with this movie.
    • This isn't a very intimidating way to introduce Sebulba.
  • Referenced: The Three Stooges
  • Much like Bruce Willis doesn't understand why people like "Die Hard", George Lucas doesn't understand why people love Star Wars.
  • The extras in this movie are bad—they have nothing to react to since most of the backgrounds and characters around them are entirely CG.
    • The reason it looks like nothing is going on is that nothing is going on.
  • What racist accent would they have given Sebulba if he spoke English?
    • Southern US?
    • The actor who voiced him is Scottish.
