    • Shot of Artoo, also standing by

Podcast

  • Callback to the "Ben is Darth Vader's Tyler Durden" theory from episodes 75 and 99. Referenced: Fight Club

  • Referenced Krazy Glue
  • The Death Star countdown is roughly accurate: the movie ends in 19 minutes
  • Porkins discussed at length
    • Alex talks about his proto-SWM riffsNote 1. He still can't pronounce Dr. Evazan's name.

Meta Minute

  • 15:34 podcast episode length.
  • The bucket was a modified 50 Gallon trash can. The role of the "Massassi Base Rebel Scout (uncredited)" was given to Lorne Peterson because of the danger posed by the high recon tower and the fact that, of the three crewmembers present, he was the only one that did not have children[1].
