Episode 376: The Prodigal Robot


In a game situation, sometimes you need to display knowledge that exceeds your own meagre skills as a player. If you don't personally have the knowhow to do certain things, you can make handy notes and refer to them. For example, the right forms of address to use when greeting nobility; or the correct ratios of ore, coke, and limestone to use when smelting iron; or how to calculate reaction fuel requirements and transfer times between planets using a Hohmann transfer orbit.

Or making apologies and showing contrition.


Padmé: Pete! You're back!
R2-D2: Yeah. I just want to say something...
Anakin: Yes?
R2-D2: The factory session was... poorly run.
Padmé: It was?
R2-D2: I shouldn't take it so seriously.
Padmé: You were taking it seriously?
R2-D2: It's just a game.
{beat, Padmé looking confused}
R2-D2: I like this group and I want to keep playing with you.
R2-D2: All of you.
Anakin: That's actually... very mature of you.
Mace Windu: I still hate you.
Obi-Wan: Hang on. Were you reading that off your PDA?
