Notes

Film

  • The film quotes itself "You assume too much"
    • Last time was Nute Gunray talking to The Queen (is that where she got it from?)
  • Introduction of Jabba the Hutt & Bib Fortuna
  • Debut of previously mentioned Gardulla the Hutt
  • Diva Shaliqua and Diva Funquita (played by Amanda "Powerhouse" Lucas)
  • Cameo by Rob Coleman
  • R5-X2 the gambling bot

Podcast

  • So, Qui-Gon knows that Padmé is the Queen, right?
  • Doing all of Amidala's lines using a Nemoidian accent
  • Is that the same Bib? or Does Jabba make replacement Twi'Leks change their name?
  • We are "treated" to Paul's Marlon Brando as Vito Corleone impression
    • And Pete's "attempt" at a "Scottish" accent
  • Referenced: My Fair Lady, The Six Million Dollar Man
  • Mentioned: Ben Burtt and his excellent sound design work, Ghoel
  • Discussion of iterations of Jabba
    • TPM Jabba is second best (obviously ROTJ Jabba is tops)

Meta Minute

  • 21:43 podcast episode length.
  • According to Wookieepedia, Hutts were once thought to be hermaphrodites, but this is no longer canon.
  • Diva is a religious title in Star Wars.

Quotes

  • Alex: "So Padmé is Nute Gunray."
  • Paul: "It's a Hutt thing." Pete: "You wouldn't understand."
  • Pete: (Regarding Ms. Lucas) "Easier more seducti—no wait."
