Luke gets into a scuffle.

Guests

Tony Consiglio

Notes

Film

  • Introduction of Ponda Baba ("Walrus Man") and Dr. Evazan.
  • Hammerhead (an Ithorian) .
  • The arguing Duros':
    • Aliases Baniss Keeg and Ellors Madak.
    • "Real" names Ohwun and Chachi De Maal ('De Maal' mispronounced by Pete).
    • Married, own docking bay 94.
  • The skirmish and Dr. Evazan's iconic dialogue.

Podcast

  • Hammerhead action figure was cool but like many Kenner figures it was different than the movie.
  • Kenner wasn't all that concerned with staying true to the film.
  • Discussion on many of the creatures.
  • Is this a bar or a coffee shop? Tony thinks it's clearly a coffee shop.
  • Luke is definitely out of his depth in the cantina (e.g. he tugs the bartender's shirt; "I'll have one of those"). Although he does know when to hit the floor in a fight.
  • The cantina is owned by a Wookiee named Chalmun. Did he introduce the "no droids' rule and, if so, why?
  • Tony used to confuse Dr. Evazan and Snaggletooth when he was a kid.
  • How Dr. Evazan should have introduced himself ("I'm a Doctor in 12 systems").
  • How has Evazan accrued 12 death sentences? Convicted in absentia?
  • What Walrus Man says to Luke.
  • Star Wars figurine toys.
  • This podcast episode is the origin of the You'll be Dead Running Joke by Tony.
  • Teaser for Tony's infamous "Millennium Falcon story".
  • Debate over the debut appearance of Chewbacca in the movie.

Meta Minute

  • 15:36 podcast episode length.
  • Tony is the first returning guest commentator.
  • Alex refers to the "Principle of Priority" which is one of the guiding principles of the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature.
  • Alex and Pete will meet a Kenner Hammerhead cosplayer at Star Wars Celebration (See SWM:WE 2).
  • Although there is some debate over who invented the flavor of Rocky Road, the name was coined by Dreyer and Edy in 1929.
  • This minute begins a run of minutes in which Alex can't pronounce, or simply can't remember, Dr. Evazan's name. At one point he says something like Dr. Hazannn (trails off...).

Quotes

  • Tony: And I'm Tony Consiglio, the inventor of Rocky Road ice cream.
  • Alex: It's a very 'saunter-heavy' minute.
  • Pete: All you hand fetishists out there - you're gonna love Minute 47.
  • Alex: [singing]: "Everybody saunter!" (to the tune of "Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now)")
  • Alex: So, Dr. Whats-his-face. Tony: I thought he was Dr. What-is-his-name.
  • Tony: YOU'LL BE DEAD!
