Episode 78: The Wagers of Jinn


We've spent a bit of time here at the dinner table, but this is really quite a long scene in the film, where a lot of plot exposition takes place. So we wanted to take advantage of it.


Jar Jar: Yousa can't turn youself in for a bounty!
Shmi: It's an intriguing challenge that could work. And it's definitely more noble than gambling.
Qui-Gon: Gambling! Yeah, is there anything we can gamble on?
Anakin: There's pod racing.
Qui-Gon: Okay, we bet on that.
Anakin: Watto has me fixing a pod for him. He plans to drive it in the Boonta Race.
R2-D2: That decrepit shopkeeper? We bet on whoever he's racing against.
Qui-Gon: {thoughtful} Hmmm.
Shmi: {lowering her eyes} Gambling has been the ruin of this town. We live in fear of the gangsters who control the rackets. And Watto beats us whenever he loses a race.
Jar Jar: That'sa terrible!
R2-D2: Yes, the suboptimal probability assessment capability of organic beings is indeed pathetic.
