An Imperial shuttle floats down from the Death Star and lands gracefully on the huge platform.

  • Starts with Leia telling Han that she can't tell him, and ends with the Imperial shuttle landing on the Endor platform.
  • "Death Star with crickets" fakeout.


  • What/why can't Leia tell Han?

Paul remembers getting a load of Star Wars (especially ROTJ) toys for Christmas one year because a few years had passed since the movie and they were marked down in a fire sale.
He saw ROTJ in the theater when he was 2. Supposedly it was the first movie he saw in theaters.
Fun memories passing time while waiting in line to go on Star Tours at Disneyland.
  • Weird time shift between when this episode was recorded and when it aired, and grammatical issues arising from this.
  • Do all the things to Support the Show.
