  • Cold open: Alex ordered them a 4-lb sack of Osetra Golden Imperial Caviar for $9600 by going to starwarsminute.com/amazon.
    • At the standard affiliate payment rate of 4.0% of purchase price, this purchase would (back when the affiliate link still worked) have earned the guys $384.
  • Despite the lush, Northern California-like environs, Endor has only 8% surface water, according to Wookieepedia.
  • At the time this episode aired, Pete had not purchased Star Wars movies since the '97 Special Edition VHSes. He has since broken that streak.
  • The IndieGoGo campaign for The Prequels Strike Back: A Fan's Journeys was fully funded by the time it closed in July of 2015. The documentary has since been digitally released.
  • Mr. T played B. A. Baracus on "The A-Team". His character famously had a fear of flying, and the team had to try many elaborate tricks to get him on a plane. As a teetotaler, B. A. preferred milk to alcohol.
