The one Han talked to in the holding cell over the comm who didn't buy his BS and asked for an operating number, followed by one of my favorite lines. "Boring conversation, anyway. LUKE, WE GOT COMPANY!!" :mrgreen: 8)

I've always liked the story behind that scene - good thinking, and probably an improvement over whatever was originally written.

Harrison had something of a knack for that. He made up the 'I know' line as well.

Given that TR-116 is generally used to refer to random changes in topic that remain discussions, rather than simply degenerating into DITL wierdness, I think we need a new term for the latter phenomenon.

One of these days a semi-serious but mostly-fun dictionary of DITL terms/posters should be written. ;)

I think what's telling against the "shit-for-aim Stormie" stereotype, more than what they did actually accomplish, is that in ANH Obi-wan identified them by their accuracy.

I think someone wrote one a while ago. No idea where it is though, or how up to date it is.
