  • "Vicious, mindless monsters". Mentioned: Ska.
  • Cliegg is kind of a jerk for going through the whole story and making the punchline "oh and she's probably dead".

  • Maybe Owen bears ill will toward the Skywalker family because of what happened to his father.
  • Does Owen find out that Anakin is Darth Vader? Did Obi-Wan tell him?
  • A potential Obi-Wan prequel.
  • Hayden Christiansen's abilities as an actor.

  • Meredith: ...I don't want Qui-Gon. I don't need Qui-Gon.
  • Meredith: Congrats, man. You got that ten seconds right.
