Phantom Menace Number

From The Star Wars Minute Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

"What is your Phantom Menace number?" has become a standard question for guests on The Phantom Menace Minute. It refers to the number of times that the person has seen The Phantom Menace in theaters (though the responder will often discuss how many times they've seen it since then too).
Alternatively, the Phantom Menace number can be thought of as the amount of time (either time into the movie or number of viewings) that it took the guest to decide that he or she didn't enjoy The Phantom Menace as much as the Original Trilogy.
The phrase was coined by Alex in minute 96 of ROTJ.
