Randal: A construction job of that magnitude would require a helluva lot more manpower than the Imperial army had to offer. I’ll bet there were independent contractors working on that thing: plumbers, aluminum siders, roofers.
Dante: Not just Imperials, is what you’re getting at…
Randal: Exactly. In order to get it built quickly and quietly they’d hire anybody who could do the job. Do you think the average storm trooper knows how to install a toilet main? All they know is killing and white uniforms.
Dante: All right, so even if independent contractors are working on the Death Star, why are you uneasy with its destruction?
Randal: All those innocent contractors hired to do a job were killed - casualties of a war they had nothing to do with.
[noticing Dante’s confusion]
All right, look-you’re a roofer, and some juicy government contract comes your way; you got the wife and kids and the two-story in suburbia - this is a government contract, which means all sorts of benefits. All of a sudden these left-wing militants blast you with lasers and wipe out everyone within a three-mile radius. You didn’t ask for that. You have no personal politics. You’re just trying to scrape out a living.
Clerks. (1994) heh
The characters were so great and they had so much fun that somehow I can’t stop thinking I may have that kind of fun if I were a real star wars fan. Too bad I just can’t love those movies.
Hey sister of mine. Turtles. Star Wars. Just for you.
May the fourth be with you all
Yeah, I tried to resist for most of the day… but I just can’t.
I know, I should be ashamed. I mean, I’m a geek and I don’t like Star Wars, I guess it’s wrong in a very deep level. But I can’t help it. I mean, I’m not even talking about the I, II and III desasters (those I hate), but even the IV, V, VI… It’s not that I hate it, but I actually don’t have any pleasure at all at watching it. I watched it once when I was like 12, and enjoyed it, but since then, I find it boring. I don’t know why, because I’m a real fangirl, and I’m very enthousiastic, and Star Wars have everything that should be amusing me a lot. But no. I mean, the only thing I enjoy in Star Wars is Leïa and Han fighting, and even that is not enough. I don’t know what my problem is…
