  • Same music as when the droid army was assembling in Episode I.
  • New Padmé outfit (number 7) Picnic dress.
  • Shaaks.


  • In addition to his pay, Jango wanted an unaltered clone for himself with no genetic enhancements or modifications. This is like a man ordering a plain hamburger with no lettuce or cheese or anything, which is somewhat unusual.
  • Would you want to raise a clone of yourself?
    • Depends, is it a “plain” clone or does it come with some barbecue sauce?
    • People in Pete's family look a lot alike, so he is currently living this reality.
    • If you were to raise of clone of yourself, what modifications would you get?
    • You could pull a Boys from Brazil.
      • Mentioned: Primer (2004).
  • How well is Jango getting paid? He's still taking bounty hunting jobs. He should have gotten royalties per clone.

  • 23:22 podcast episode length.
  • Link to the news story about the twins finding out they were triplets.

  • The episode of the Clone Wars cartoon that Pete referenced was episode 8 from season one. It has the unfortunate title of "Bombad Jedi".
  • We don't yet know if the clones are good guys or bad guys, but we suspect that they're bad guys.


  • Alex: What modifications would you want on your clone? Pete: Ketchup.
  • Ricky: I'll take a stooge.
  • Pete: C-3PO and Jar Jar on the planet of the Greedos.
  • Pete: I think it's called "flangeing a harble".
