Episode 260: Memory Like a Mixmaster


Although this scene appears in the movie, it is quite short. There is a deleted version where this scene carries on for about 15 minutes while they walk approximately 19 miles from the shuttle landing site to wherever it is they're going, past gorgeous Italianate palatial scenery, with Anakin and Padmé talking about the politics of Naboo in excruciating, mind-numbing detail. If only they'd talked about their past RPG campaigns, it would have been a much more interesting scene and they could have left it in.


{Padmé and Anakin are arriving on Naboo, and carrying their bags from the shuttle}
Anakin: So tell me about this fantasy game you played.
Padmé: Oh, it was really cool.
R2-D2: {aside} If by "cool" you mean "it sucked".
Padmé: I was a barbarian. You should have seen my stats.
Anakin: What was the adventure about?
R2-D2: {aside} About three months too long.
Padmé: We were on this important diplomatic mission for the King. And we got attacked by a horde of pirate ninjas.
Anakin: Pirate ninjas?
Padmé: Yeah, ninjas on pirate ships. It was pretty cool. I sunk a few of the ships—
R2-D2: {aside} That's not all he sunk.
Padmé: —but the boss ninja escaped and started stalking us.
Padmé: We kidnapped a couple of hobbits and took a shortcut through this Dwarven kingdom after I figured out how to open the door. There was a big battle at the end and I killed a bunch of bad guys.
R2-D2: You idiot! You're mixing it up with Lord of the Rings!
R2-D2: That would have been a fun campaign in comparison!
