Hi I know this is five years after the fact that this episode was on air, but I think that the rest of the world hates us not because we don't help them, but they hate us because the US is the easier target to hate. The rest of the world (Africa, Asia, Latin America and most parts of Europe) have their own issues to deal with but its easier for the governments of these countries to point what the US is doing wrong, and with this the people lose focus of their own problems and the politicians are happy. but that's my own view

Who\'d want to be immortal, they\'re just a load of serene bastards. Yes ,you would need a hobby. Like creating the universe, or insulting every living thing in the universe.

Think about this though, maybe you are immortal. The universe, as you know it, will cease to exist when you die. Therefore, you were alive for the entire existence of your universe. Is that a form of immortality?

The problem with the prequels, for me anyway, was that they were made for kids, but the real fans were now in their 30s and 40s. Maybe he expected the fans to take their kids to see them, ha sci-fi nerds with kids, what was he thinking. They definitely needed to be darker. On the other hand, Darth Maul could have been in all 3, like a Monty Python Black Knight charachter. Each time he challenges the Jedi, he loses a limb. Can you cauterize an arm stump with a light-saber? \"Tis but a scratch\".

I would love to see a Tarantino Star Wars film. \"You know on Coruscant, they don\'t call it a Bantha Patty, it\'s called a Royale Patty\"

One question though, why is it that the Jedi mind tricks never seem to work on the greedy? Does greed overpower the force? Is greed the Dark Side?
Neither Jabba nor Watto could be fooled by the Jedi.


P.S. R2D2 had to be in all 6 films, R2D2 was the real chosen one after all.

Who wants to live forever? Me, me, me, me, me. I\'m one of those guys that loves to wake up just so I can see what happens next. There would be less pressure on me so I could take things in at my leisure and become a polymath and a serene bastard.
