Notes

Film

  • Watto and Qui-Gon reach a deal.
  • Dewbacks.

Podcast

  • The "high five" actually looks pretty good.
  • Teaser for upcoming Jar Jar moment.
  • Jar Jar is multilingual.
  • Dewbacks are walking in lock-step.
    • The hosts offer their explanations for this.
  • Can you use the Force on animals? Probably the telekinesis, but not the mind trick.
  • Direct Quote (honorable mention): Long time.
    • "Foreshadowing": Obi-Wan himself ends up being stuck there.

    • Referenced: About a Boy (2002)
  • Greed has been a recurring theme for the last few minutes.
    • Is this a message from Lucas to himself?

  • Support the show on patreon.

Meta Minute

  • 18:06 podcast episode length.
  • 8-DAY-GREEDO call from Josh in Seattle. Potential Shmi/Qui-Gon romance?
  • This is the first, but definitely not the last, time that the guys refer to Qui-Gon as "Qui-Guy".
  • Boringly, the average lifespan of Jawas is 80 standard years[1].
  • Alex has outed Pete as a nerd on previous occasions, including minute 17
