November 21st, 2016


Yoda and Mace Windu move to greet the senator, Yoda taps Amidala with his cane.


(Returning champion) Tony Consiglio



  • Starts with Yoda saying "Reply hazy, try again."
  • First Rodian in the movie.
    • Dar Wac.
  • First fully CGI Yoda (The Phantom Menace Yoda was replaced in 2011 for the Blu-ray).
  • Ahmed best was the stand-in for Yoda in this scene, and many others (so the actors could get the timing of their lines right).
  • Second Padmé outfit: "Loyalist Committee" dress.


  • Callback to Empire Minute 49: Yodabutt.
  • Mentioned: SWM-Canon#"The Force" does not exist.
  • Is Sheev sending out some kind of Dark Side "smokescreen" to obscure the Jedi Force Vision?
    • Is it like when there is a sandstorm and your satellite TV goes out?
  • How come, when Sheev was killed, the Empire pretty much collapses right away?
  • Callback to Minute 63 of TPM when Alex and Pete went Rodian for Rodian. Dar Wac was not on that list.
  • Discussion of CGI vs. Puppet Yoda
    • Potential fan theory that Puppet Yoda and CGI Yoda are actually different characters, and the Puppet was exiled to Dagobah because he couldn't compete with his CG rival.
    • Order of "Yoda quality": ESB puppet Yoda>ROTJ Puppet Yoda>CGI Yoda>>>TPM puppet Yoda.
  • Callback to Theomet Danlé (disgruntled spice miner).
  • Naboo's three moons.
  • It's a very mansplainy scene - all the male Jedi dismiss Amidala's assertion out of hand. He might as well be saying "You don't know what you're talking about little lady."
  • Referenced: Mister Mxyzptlk from the Superman comics, who if he said or spelled his name backwards, would be returned to his home dimension.

Meta Minute

This is where Yoda would come to on Ahmed Best.
  • 30:21 podcast episode length.
  • Introduction of
  • Tony was the first guest ever on the STAR WARS MINUTE, so it's fitting having him be the first guest for Attack of the Clones.
  • The line "She survived the attack" is not subtitled, nor does it appear in the script.
  • "Talk Like Yoda Day" is May 21st ("Talk Like a Pirate Day" is September 19th).
  • There are Yoda syntax generators online. To say the phrase "There totally should be" you would say "Be, there totally should. Hmmmmmm."


  • Pete: You're here with us to cover minute 6 of Attack of the Clones Tony: What?!
  • Pete: Onaconda Farr? Nehh... Dar Wac.
  • Alex: Well he's [Dar Wak is] a Rodian and, as we know all know, they are involved in shady stuff. Pete: What are you trying to say?
  • Tony: <terrible Yoda impression> I can't leave my house. Pete: That's a good Yoda impression.
  • Pete: (As Padmé) Shut up, frog. Who tried to kill me?!
  • Alex: <heavy sarcasm> As hard as it is to imagine Anakin complaining about something...
