He’s A Few Kessel Runs Short Of A Parsec

| Related | May 13, 2013

(It’s May 20th, 2005, and ‘Star Wars: Episode III’ has come out.)

Dad: “Hey, we’re thinking of going to see Star Wars. Do you want to come?”

Me: “I saw it yesterday at midnight.”

Dad: “Yeah. Do you want to see it again?”

Me: “Sure. I can keep Mom from getting confused.”

(My mom is not terribly good about remembering plot elements, but my parents have been Star Wars fans since 1977.)

Dad: “She’ll be fine.”

Me: “Yeah, sure. She told me after Episode I that she’s glad Senator Palpatine is on their side.”

(Dad laughs. We go to the movie theater and an hour into the movie, nice Senator Palpatine has just murdered four Jedi, and named Anakin Skywalker, Darth Vader. He pulls up his hood.)

Dad: “ OH MY GOSH; IT’S THAT GUY?!”
