Obi-Wan gives Anakin a dirty look.

  • Starts with Obi-Wan warning that they will not exceed their mandate, and ends with Jar Jar figuratively busting with happiness.

  • TGIF (Tony's glad it's Friday)
  • Darth Jar Jar theory (be on the lookout!)
  • Obi-Wan as a wet towel killing the momentum of the movie. Is he just a lazy employee? Or did the union rep come talk to him about exceeding mandates?
  • Does Obi-Wan realize the "romantic tension" between Padmé and Anakin? He's a terrible wingman.
    • He doesn't want them to be in a relationship because if they got married then he and Anakin couldn't be roommates anymore.
  • Perceived love triangle was cut, but the skeleton remains.
  • We think Anakin is creepy, but does George Lucas think that Anakin is a creep? Whose side are we supposed to be on here?
  • Pete sides with Obi-Wan here because he is a stickler for rules.
  • Anakin is a typical whiny teenager.
  • Padmé said she would go retire so she could escape from Anakin.
  • Jedi are too important for protection.
  • Ring theory: not much so far.
