A Period of Civil War

Sometimes when things go off the rails and someone suggests they start over, Pete always wants to start ALL the way over. I feel like this is another borderline Running Joke.--Kabutton (talk) 16:11, 9 May 2018 (PDT)


Not sure where this would go either (SWM-Canon or here?), but I'm thinking about putting an entry for "What order should you watch the movies?"--Kabutton (talk) 16:11, 9 May 2018 (PDT)

What's a duck

The "What's a duck?" quote is, I feel, borderline as a running joke. Alex, especially, brings it up occasionally, but I'm not decided on the matter. --Kabutton (talk) 11:27, 12 May 2016 (PDT)

I think it counts. It is so often! Spookypeanut (talk) 22:03, 14 May 2016 (PDT)

Would you put it under Quotes? It was a line from the movie that was cut, so it's in a weird gray area.--Kabutton (talk) 09:27, 26 May 2016 (PDT)

Womp rats

They're brought up in pretty much every ad, but rarely in the main show so I'm not sure they count. --Kabutton (talk) 06:54, 14 May 2016 (PDT)

I think I agree in this case. But that does bring me to another thing that I've been considering: having a section of the Episode template for ad description. Do you think we should do that? Spookypeanut (talk) 22:03, 14 May 2016 (PDT)


I've been thinking something along the same lines. I was thinking of eventually making a page for each ad, and then mentioning in the episode pages which ad was played before and linking to it

Are the ads ever exactly the same? I don't remember the early ones, but recently I don't remember hearing the same ad twice! Spookypeanut (talk) 13:36, 15 May 2016 (PDT)

I'm relistening to some of the old Empire Minutes. All of their ads for (which I guess is now just were the same, and start off with talk about how it was cold enough to freeze a tauntaun's bum, so there's that.--Kabutton (talk) 18:20, 15 May 2016 (PDT)

"Taste the rainbow"—so funny!--Kabutton (talk) 08:21, 8 May 2018 (PDT)

Separate articles

It might be a bit disruptive, but I was thinking of splitting up the "Quotes" from the "Running Jokes" articles because the page is a bit on the long side. No action needed on this any time soon, just getting my thoughts out there.--Kabutton (talk) 07:53, 2 June 2016 (PDT)

...Yeah, this page is a bit lengthy. I'd like to see if we can make more individual pages like I did for the Secret Rebel Agents page.--Kabutton (talk) 11:15, 9 September 2016 (PDT)

What is that in Enterprises?

Do you think this deserves "Inside Joke" status? I just re-listened to to the TPM Minute where they finally mention how long the ship is.

I dunno... it seemed rather fleeting (but then it does come up several times). Screw it, do it. So long as there's at least one reference to when it comes up, it's useful info Spookypeanut (talk) 13:55, 21 June 2016 (PDT)

Life Debt

Oh man! I was just about to write this article myself. Nice going, User:Dl1846! I couldn't figure out whether it should go here, or in SWM-Canon.

latest revision

‎Dl1846, there is some overlap between the entry you've just added and this section of the SWM-Canon page: SWM-Canon#Ben Kenobi is a killer. I think we should do our best to differentiate so there is no overlap between these two Pages that talk about the podcast.
Also, my goal for the Inside References/Running Jokes page is to document references and jokes that span more than just one film and have taken on a life of their own as part of Star Wars Minute lore. I'm not sure if this entry fits that description. Just some thoughts I had. I'm trying not to be too controlling, but I do have a feeling of ownership over this page.--Kabutton (talk) 18:05, 27 August 2016 (PDT)

Thanks; that definitely overlaps and I'll remove it now. It doesn't fit that description at all; you're right.
You're not being controlling - you are ensuring a better overall outcome. Keep giving feedback. Thanks again.--Dl1846 (talk) 00:18, 28 August 2016 (PDT)

Secret Rebel Moles

I think there are enough examples of this that it needs it's own page, don't you? I know that Khurgee is the most blatant, but I remember the guys suggesting that the "hold your fire; there's no life signs" guy was also working for the Rebellion, and they've even gone so far as to implicate Darth Vader and the Emperor on the conspiracy. --Kabutton (talk) 05:21, 3 September 2016 (PDT)

OK, I've made a separate page for this with as many examples as I could remember offhand. If you think of any more just let me know.--Kabutton (talk) 07:20, 6 September 2016 (PDT)

David, David, David

This is just a note for myself. I plan to add a running joke about how everybody who supports Star Wars Minute on patreon is named David.--Kabutton (talk) 10:59, 3 January 2017 (PST)

Potential new SWM quotes

I realize that they quote "3 or 4 seasons" and Tarkin's "in a way..." quite a bit. If we do end up breaking the quotes off into its own article, I think I'll add these to that page.--Kabutton (talk) 08:44, 6 January 2017 (PST)

Potential new Running Joke

"Alex doesn't listen to the show"

I don't know if this is a joke so much as a "fun fact" but I'm not sure where else to put it. Thoughts?

Right-hand-side TOC

Do you like this way of doing the TOC? The TOC for this page got a bit long, so I thought it would be good to see content without having to scroll past it. Spookypeanut (talk) 06:07, 21 June 2018 (PDT)

Awesome. Thanks so much for doing that! It looks WAY better.--Kabutton (talk) 08:53, 21 June 2018 (PDT)
