  • During the show, the hosts attempted to dim the house lights, but it was either all or nothing, leading to a momentary blackout. They ended up choosing to keep all lights on.
  • Pete was surprised by the inclusion of the picture of Stuart's wife as a child, who kinda sorta looks like Cindel.
  • The slide of Wicket dancing on the table is an animated .gif, and they just let it go for a while.


  • Stuart: Night falls on the moon of Endor. Pete: For those of you listening at home, everybody just went blind
  • Jenny: He [the Gorax] just looks like Klingon Hagrid.
  • Pete (as Burl Ives): "Deej will find his sons using this skin glider"
