- The hosts circle back to analyze the Jabba scene from the Special Edition in SW Special Edition Minute 54: Boogie
- The hosts request that someone keep track of the secret Rebel agents. Sounds like a job for the SWM wiki!
- Pete: It's the part of the movie where I've been sleeping with your wife and now we have to have dinner and be all civil. It's like, 'So... uh-'" Mike: "Alex is mine! Alex belongs to me! Now that I'm here and I have a few things to say."
- Pete: "See, who says there aren't enough women in Star Wars?"
