    • Parsecs are a unit of distance, not time
  • Luke's clueless reaction to the negotiations
  • What if Ben had taken the wrong teenager with him?
  • The first thing Han does after Ben says "No questions asked" is ask a question.
  • Mentioned: You'll be Dead!
  • The (in)famous Millennium Falcon story
    • Turns out those smuggling compartments were full to the brim with cockroaches

Meta Minute

  • Listeners that called the hotline to say "Millennium Falcon" had their calls stitched together at the top of Minute 53
  • Tony will reprise his surprisingly good TIE Fighter sound in Star Wars Minute: Weekend Edition 64.
  • The Indy 500 is an automobile race that is a total of 500 miles in length, requiring 200 laps of the 2.5 mile track to finish. Running it in 400 would mean being 40 laps short of completing the race.

Quotes

  • Alex: (In a hoity-toity British accent) Lovey, bring up the Falcon, won't you?"
  • Pete: Fast ship? ...It ran the Indy 500 in 400!
  • Pete: I'll have a venti macchiato, and no questions. Alex: Is that for here or to go? Pete: I SAID NO QUESTIONS!
  • Alex: (In reference to the visual of a Millennium Falcon swarming with roaches) Somebody recreate that. Pete: Please don't.
