Anderson Cooper 360 (2003 US) - So here's a Pop quiz for you tonight. Tonight you're watching a scene right now from, A) Return of the Jedi, B) Revenge of the Sith or, C) a political convention. See the battle between good and evil in the Star Wars Saga is grossing over from a galaxy far away to the universe of raw politics.    Judy Woodruff = REPORTER
REPORTER: A few days ago in a land not so far away the Cannes crowd looked at Darth Vader and saw George Bush.  When Anakin Skywalker said, "If you are not with me, you are my enemy" ..some movie goers heard this.. *Bush quote* - "Either you are with us or you are with the terrorists".
REPORTER: ...and in the epic clash of galactic powers they saw the war in Iraq.  Were they right?  George Lucas says the original Star Wars movie sprung from the ashes of Vietnam making Vader a little less Bush and a little more Nixon.  Though he's quick to draw connections.  The parallels of what we're doing in Iraq and Vietnam are unbelievable.
REPORTER:  at its heart it has always been a political parable.. Why do you think Ronald Reagan called the Soviet Union an evil empire?  I fare cuts in the defense budget and carrier groups and troops in Europe and Star Wars and any number of areas.
REPORTER: Even in these dark days with an earthly senate..one senator seduced by a dark vision of absolute power seeks to destroy this fabled order replacing fair judges with far right Clones.  To do this, he's ready to use a nightmare weapon known as the nuclear option.
REPORTER:  Yes, that's senate majority leader Bill Frist.  The liberal group moveon.org is spending $150,000 to run that ad.  "Don't make me destroy you!"
REPORTER: Revenge of the Sith will surely make ten times that sum by next week.  With or without the Force.  "I hope right you are"
REPORTER: Judy Woodruff, CNN, Washington.

Big and Hairy (1998) - 

Big Breakfast UK (1999 UK) - Game show on the program called "Star Bores" with special guest Billy Dee Williams. Some excerpts: Billy Dee Williams appeared on Channel 4's Big Breakfast in the UK, promoting the Black Film Makers Festival and his new film "The Visit".  The presenter, Richard Bacon showed the clip where Han Solo & Lando Calrissian meet up on Cloud City in the Empire Strikes Back, resulting in the following exchange, to which there was much laughter:
RB: That's the scene where you double cross Han Solo. BDW: I didn't double cross Han Solo.
RB: Yes you did. BDW: We don't want to have to get into this whole discussion. RB: Alright mate.
BDW: Takes too long to explain
Richard Bacon then asked him what he thought of The Phantom Menace, which resulted in the following revealing exchange:
BDW: I really didn't see all of it, I just saw a little bit of it. The only character I don't like in that is Jar Jar.
RB: I hate Jar Jar.
BDW: Jar Jar makes me nervous ... but I think the kids probably love Jar Jar though ... you have to be a kind of a frenetic kinda person to like Jar Jar.
The funniest bit of the interview was a quiz entitled "Star Bores", in which 3 Star Wars fans were asked Star Wars questions by Billy Dee Williams. The catch being the 2 losers would have to give the winner treasured items from their Star Wars collections. It's not everyday you see British Star Wars fans on UK Breakfast TV, so we figured we'd give them 15 minutes of fame (or humiliation when you see what some of them couldn't answer):
Contestant No 1
Adrian - "I've brought 2 of the final figures from the old line that were ever to come off the factory line."
Contestant No 2
William - "I've brought this collection of conceptual art prints which are very rare, very hard to get a hold off now, almost impossible"
Contestant No 3
Dan - "I've got this Boba Fett poster and it's signed by Jeremy Bulloch who played Boba Fett in the films."
Billy Dee fired off the following questions in 60 seconds:
How did Luke smuggle his lightsaber into Jabba's palace?
What are double bladed lightsabers used by the Jedi for?
In the Empire Strikes Back, what attacked Luke on Hoth?
Who was in command of the 2nd Death Star?
Who was in charge of the Trade Federation?
How did Han Solo win the Millennium Falcon?
What planet is Han Solo from?

[1] A skit with Yoda and other Star Wars characters (anyone with the correct info please help!!)
[2] TPM reference Apr 1999
[3] 2001 Conan uses closed-captioning in a skit. The closed-captioning becomes a chat room, 'Hey, do any of you guys have the new version of Star Wars: Episode 1?' (regarding the 'Phantom Edit' )
[4] Oct 31, 2001 - The audience was dressed up for Halloween and they showed one who was dressed up as Chewbacca. Conan, says, 'Awww, Chewbacca's here EVERY night!' like it's nothing...hehe.
[5] May 2002 Today 20th Century Fox announced that they overestimated the receipts of "Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of The Clones." They overestimated by about $6 million. Yeah, and they said it was a really stupid mistake because they figured in that fans would bring along dates.
[6] May 2002 "Star Wars Episode Two: Attack of The Clones" opened last night. Die-hard fans that had been camped out for weeks were finally able to see it. The best part about the movie was the fight scene; the worst part about the movie was sitting next to someone who had camped out for weeks.
[7] Last night on Conan O'Brien, there was a mildly Star Wars-esque reference. Conan was talking to Saddam Hussein via his magical television where only the mouths of famous people move. Saddam said something to the effect that of course he couldn't be dead. He has to be alive for "Part 3: Attack of the Kurds" and said that in the sequel he will reveal himself to be George W. Bush's father.
[8] 2002 "George Lucas is giving the band N'Sync cameos in the upcoming Star Wars movie. Apparently because he wanted C3PO to look less gay "

[ In nasal voice ] "I hear you, Conan O'Brien!"  [ Laughter ] the actor who plays C-3Po in the "star wars" movies just filmed his very last scene ever in a "star wars" movie. Said that it made him very Sad. [ Audience aws ] apparently, they're aren't that many roles that call for a gay robot. [ Laughter ] "I'll just be a gay robot someplace else." How hard could it be?
[11]  3/30/05 Carrie Fisher who pled -- pled. Who played Princess Leia in the original "star wars" Movies says she's going to write a tell-all Book about all of the sex that took place on the set.  [ Cheers ] she's Al a companion Book for "star wars" Fans that explains what sex is. [ Laughter and applause ]
[12] 4/2/05 (part of monologue) This is the latest on the "star wars"ovie that's about to come out. Director George Lucas says that people should not bring kids to the newest "star wars" movie. Should not bring kids. Yeah. After hearing this, "star wars" Fans said, "kids? We've never even had girlfriends.
[13] 4/9/05 I gotta talk about this. The other day at the Michael Jackson trial, which I am following very closely, it was revealed that one of the items in Michael's bedroom is a life-size replica of C-3Po from "star wars." [ Scattered cheers ] he has a life-size C-3Po in his bedroom. Yeah, Jackson's C-3Po looks like the one in the movie, except his is Bent over at the waist. [ Audience groans ] [ cheers and applause ] wow.
[14] 4/15/05 One thing -- >> Conan: yes! [ Laughter ] I Hope you don't mind, a brought light sabers. Let's do it in slower motion and we also need the sound. [ Both make "star wars" sound effects ] >> imagine  Conan: you're Darth Vader. So I want to hear some Darth Vader [breathes deeply..imitates Darth Vader]  Conan: and then zoing! [laughter] next, you're going to teach me how to throw somebody..."  (Star Wars theme music is played)
[15] 04/26/05 Conan: "30,000 people attended the Star Wars Celebration 3... and it was the highest concentration of celibate men other than the inauguration of Pope Benedict XVI"
[16]  04/29/05 Hey, this weekend at a "star wars" convention -- this is big news -- at a "star wars" Convention, fans voted and said their favorite alien life forms are wookiees. Yeah. [ Cheers and applause ] yeah. Yeah, "star wars" fans said their second favorite alien life forms are women.
[17] 04/30/05
CONAN: I plan to see the new Star Wars movie - " Harrison Ford wrote, "at a red-carpet premiere in L.A. " Carrie Fisher wrote, "at a Gala Charity event." Mark Hamill wrote, "when Mr. D'Angelo says the grill is clean enough, and I can go...[laughter and ooohs] it's at Denny's, interestingly enough, too" ..."speaking of "Star Wars" - "If I were real, I would - " "If I were real, I would _" C-3P0 wrote, "work with the underprivileged" [laughter]
Wait a minute, wait a minute. That's the "star wars" fan. Why is that Star Wars fan there? Sir? >> Isn't this the line for "revenge of the sith"? [ Frankenstein's groan ] no! Ahh! *Applause* *Star Wars fan screams*
Conan: all right. While they're murdering him, we'll take a break.
[18]  05/04/05 (monologue)
[19] 01/22/05
Author TARIQ NASHEED: This is why the book is called The Mack Within
CONAN: Yes
TARIQ: Give it up, man! All these macks!
CONAN: It's like a - it's a Jedi Principal.  It's channeling that Mack within you, right?  *light laughter* okay, forget it.  I won't talk. You go *laughter* probably, Star Wars references don't help.
TARIQ: No, that's not macking *laughter*
CONAN (nerdy): Kind of like on Star Trek when they went to Romulan 9.
[20] 05/20/05 About the film Revenge of the Sith:
CONAN: Jedi are dying all over the place. So with all this going on, why would anyone of us care about Yoda's head Lice problem? *Laughter* a lot of the movie's about Yoda's head Lice problem. They're terrible scenes. Take a look. *film clip* Anakin does not take to his new assignment with much enthusiasm. It's very dangerous putting them together. *laughter* I don't think he can handle it. *laughter* Maybe he's not the chosen one.  does he not bring balance to the Force?  That's what the prophecy said. *cheers and applause*  
CONAN:  I don't want to give anything away, but that's two-thirds of the movie *laughter*  he goes and gets a cream and that doesn't work.  It's not good.  All right, now some people who aren't Star Wars fans wonder why they devote so much of their lives to a series of movies.  Well, the answer is pretty simple.  Awkward and less athletic people sometimes feel inferior to muscular jock types.  And they'll search out other areas in which they can excel and outperform those more popular guys.  With this in mind, we'd like to present the Star Wars geeks worst nightmare, the jock who knows as much about Star Wars as a geek *laughter and applause*
JOCK: You know, the original Jabba action figure came with a vinyl cape.  The cloth robe was added a little later.
GIRLS: Oh!  Ah!  [applause]
CONAN: ...was pretty much me [laughter] with a few changes.  Now, a lot of toys have come out in conjunction with the Star Wars movies.  Probably the most popular is a talking Yoda doll.  Everyone loves to get this talking Yoda doll.  You squeeze his hand and he dispenses mystical wisdom.  But be careful.  There are a lot of bootleg versions of this doll out there that they're selling on the street, like this one right here.  And they're just not the same.  Listen to this bootleg Yoda right here.
YODA DOLL:  Hey, How YOU doing?  I'm Yada the puppet from the movie and...  Hey, dad, the pizza man's here!   Don't come in to daddy's room without knocking!  I'm recording the yada thing!
[21] 5/18/05 
CONAN to a "guest" SW fan:  So, Tim, by the way, what's Grievous? Is that a "star wars" character? FAN TIM: Yeah, that's General Grievous, a cyborg who hunts Jedi. *applause* Fan, Tim, with Star Wars t-shirt.
[22] 5/26/05 Revenge of the Sith, everyone is talking about it because everyone knows the big reason for the film's popularity is all of the great Star Wars characters like R2-D2, Darth Vader, Yoda.  People love those characters, that's why they see the films. Many people don't know that there were several characters that were actually cut out of the new Star Wars movie.  *laughter* True story.
Yeah, apparently, George Lucas has tried very hard to sweep these failed characters under the rug.  He doesn't want anyone to know about them.  It's like stuff that they tried, it didn't work, they cut it out of the film.  He wants them to go away.
Our first rejected Star Wars character is a Wookiee with deep-felt religious beliefs dating back to the old testament.  Please welcome, Jewbacca!! *laughter*  You guys like it!  The nerds are mad now. *speaking in nerd voice* '..it's CHEWbacca, not Jewbacca!'
I'll bet a lot of you have wondered if you are a Hutt. Well, if you like watching enslaved Twi'leks dance while you eat a frog in a Naboo Starfighter, then you just might be a Hutt. *applause*  Very good.  Jabba the Foxworthy.  All right.
Our next rejected Star Wars character is named Lamb Vindaloo, an Indian restaurant entree that has turned to the Dark Side.  Rejected character's devotion to the evil Empire is matched only by his love of mainstream country music.  Please, welcome Darth Brooks *applause*
Oh, I'm drinking my way to the Dark Side some day I'll even fight my own son Luke, it's hard to remember Yoda's teachings when you wake up every morning in your puke *laughter, applause* CONAN: Very nice!  I can hear his ... *Darth Vader breathing*  ...He comes from the planet... *laughter* all right.  In his latest Star Wars movie, George Lucas wanted to make a tougher, meaner version of the robot R2-D2. He wanted to toughen R2-D2 up, by combining him with a badass TV icon of the 1980s.  It didn't quite work, he cut him out of the film.  But here he is anyway, R2Mr.T2 *laughter*
[23] 1999 Now, folks, you don't have to be a science fiction fan to hate this next character. Say hello to Bar-Bar Glinks, the new Star Wars character that's even more annoying than Jar-Jar Binks.

We've got a really fine show tonight. We have a lot of cool stuff we're going to do. I mentioned over there the new Star Wars film to a less than thrilled crowd, but we are -- it's hard to believe we have less than one week away from the official opening of the final Star Wars movie, Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith. I have no idea what that title means. I didn't even know the Sith was angry at us. *Laughter* I don't even know what a Sith is, but the Sith, apparently, is getting its revenge in this movie so, ooh, watch out. *laughter*
But If you're a fan of the Star Wars franchise, this is a huge deal, especially If you like to collect Star Wars action figures, right? These things are huge. Action figures have always meant a lot to Star Wars fans and some of the collectibles, over the years, are now worth thousands of dollars. People collect these things, they trade them and you can get, I think, some of them go for tens of thousands of dollars. For this last movie, for the very first time -- this is kind of cool -- the producers have created a whole new line of action figures.
That's right!  They're action figures of Star Wars fans themselves! *laughter* Yeah, you know the fanatics, the weirdos who camp out in front of the theatre a week before it opens?  They've made action figures of those people,  and these incredible collectibles have been kept under wraps.  You know how secretive Lucas is, and the Star Wars people.  No one gets to see these until we came along.  We managed to get a hold of these action figures.  We're gonna show them tonight.  We're gonna get in a lot of trouble, but we're going to do it.  Here they are, the new Star Wars fans action figures!  *Star Wars them music and cheers*  I hate to brag, but, that's a huge special effect. *laughter* We can make words come up and go away, but to have words go like that?
All right, let's look at some of these.  These are really good.  These are beautifully made.  Here's the first Star Wars fan action figure.  Take a look.  It's Morbly Obeseus, this is the guy waiting in line in a homemade outfit *laughter* and look at the craftsmanship.
Here's a guy right here.  This is going to be worth a lot of money, so hang on to this.  This is a character known as "Idiota" - the guy who dressed up as Jar-Jar Binks and got his ass kicked.  *laughter, applause*  complete with violent bruising.   Internal hemorrhaging is also available for extra money.  And then, finally, there's this character right here, called "Anonymous."  It's the die-hard fan who's embarrassed to be seen in line *laughter* he's got a little hood on, and look, as an added feature, you can pull the hood back and actually look at him *laughter, applause* of course, look what happens when this guy tries to go to her *another figure*...
This next one, highly collectible and rare.  This is "Lovelatch," one of the few female Star Wars fans.  *laughter* there she is.  There's not many of them.  They've only made a few of these because there really aren't that many female Star Wars fans, but look at this - this is an added feature.  Beautiful attention to detail.  Look what happens when she tries to approach this guy in line.  It's fascinating.   She's not interested. *laughter* it's all very sad.  Well, there they are - the Star Wars fans action figures.  Collect all seven! *cheers and applause* *Star Wars theme music*
[25] 05/21/05 
CONAN: That's about it? I paid you $500 and that's all you found out?
>>: Okay. Truth is I had to tail someone else around last night.
CONAN: wait a minute. Someone else hired you?
>>: Oh, yeah. I did, pal, I had him follow you and take some great pictures. As a matter of fact, here you are stealing from the tip jar at Starbucks. *laughter* Here you are pouring some whiskey on your cornflakes there. Oh, this is my favorite. You've gone to see the new Star Wars movie dressed as Princess Leia.
[26] 06/15/05 "Late night guest autographs" Twelve minutes into the show.  CONAN: George Lucas, man, George Lucas, the director, the creator of the Star Wars franchise.  He was on the show.  That was a great show.  Let's see what he wrote: 'Conan, you're the biggest nerd I've ever seen, and I'm George Lucas'  CONAN: That's not funny.
[27] 6/25/05 Guest is Ethan Hawke.
CONAN: Any Star Wars fans here? *cheers and applause* all right, then. Oh, yeah, you can tell. *Laughter...then in nerdy voice* "mmmm, hooray! Mmmm !" *laughter*
What am I doing? What am I doing? Like I'm such a jock, you know? *laughter* who am I, but yet I do.  I can't help it.
No, this week George Lucas was given the American Film Institute's "Lifetime Achievement Award."  Good.  *applause*  Thanks, good. That's very nice. Yeah. Not only that, not only that, C3PO was given a "Lifetime Achievement Award" by "Gay Robot Magazine." *laughter* Very narrow-focus magazine. And then, I think this is the strangest quote of the week but in a new interview Billy Bob Thornton said that having sex with Angelina Jolie was like having sex with a couch.
CONAN to ETHAN: now, I don't want to get in trouble with you. I was sort of making fun of Star Wars a little bit in the monologue area. But were you -- you're a big Star Wars fan, is that right?  
ETHAN: Yeah, yeah, I am. You know, I was -- I'm peak, you know. I was 7-years-old when the first one came out. And, so I've now -- have you seen the new
CONAN: No, I have not seen the new one yet.
CONAN: Thanks, buddy. Great, great . So Darth Vader's bad? *laughter*  
ETHAN: Yeah.
CONAN: OH .  
ETHAN: But, yeah , I've been obsessed with the whole thing. I feel there 's a certain peace in my life now that it's come to a conclusion.
CONAN: But do you, now, do you think that's really it for the Star Wars franchise, though? I think -- so much money, they're just going to say, "oh, wait, he didn't die, that guy, he's come back." You know? (laughter* he ate a come-back-to-life pill or something. *laughter*
[28] May 4, 2005 During a skit featuring Rune Haako and Nute Gunray (Conan's actors in costumes), Conan is asking questions of the audience (obvious plants), the audience guy says, "and then those two guys should have a lightsaber battle on a catwalk."
CONAN  Um, again, that would be a copyright infringement, Lucas lawyers would eat us alive.."  "...Rune Haako...let's go back to the scene and see what Rune actually did..."  "ACTION!"  
RUNE (singing): Hey, I'd rather be a chicken than a turkey like you! Now, everyone join in!   CONAN: That was a great.  Well, folks if you love that, you're gonna love the new Star Wars movie.  It's the same.

Coupling (UK) -
[1] Size Matters (#1.2) 5/19/00 
HOWARD (Scott-Masson): Typical lefty puritan.
SALLY (Isitt): Typical What? Come the revolution.
PATRICK (Miles): What revolution? You guys are in power, we're the revolution now.
SALLY: No, that can't be right.
PATRICK: You're..the evil Empire.
SALLY: No!
HOWARD: Yes, like Star Wars. And Patrick and me are the rebel Alliance. (Patrick and Howard start singing the main theme from Star Wars)
SALLY: No, no, we're the goodies, we're the lefties, we're always the goodies. (Patrick and Howard continue to sing)
PATRICK (speaking into his beer glass with an impression of Vader): No...Sally...YOU are the establishment! *Jeff (Coyle) gets up to use the restroom, Sally follows, stops him, tells him he's got to go with Patrick...Howard and Patrick are making lightsaber sounds and are using their bottles as lightsabers.*
[2] The Melty Man Cometh (#2.4) 9/24/01 Ha! Terrified pants. There's nothing funny about the Melty Man, Patrick. You know about the Melty Man, too? We all know the Melty Man. Who is he? The archenemy of trouser confidence. Professor Moriarty in groin form. Darth Vader... Without the helmet...
Patrick is visited by "Melty Man" :

MELTY MAN: "Join Me Patrick!"
PATRICK: "NO, you killed my erection!"
MELTY MAN: "no, Patrick, I AM your erection!"
PATRICK: "NOOOO!" (there was one more scene where Melty Man made an appearance...but I don't recall what the lines were.)
[3] The Freckle, the Key, and the Couple Who Weren't (#3.5) 10/21/02 Yes, I suggested it was time you started acting a bit more like a proper dominant male, and you did a Darth Vader impression. Darth Vader, while chiefly famous for breathing out, also... (doorbell rings..)

Craig Kilborn (Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn) (2002 US) - 
[1] Today I found out that my Jedi Stormtrooper helmet is waterproof. It wasn't raining, my head was shoved into a toilet. I drove by one theater today and "Star Wars" was playing and all the people in line were dressed up like Star Wars characters. Then I drove by another theater where Spider-Man was playing and the people were dressed up like Spider-Man. Then I drove by the theater where Unfaithful was playing and the people were dressed like Bill Clinton.
[2] In The News skit 7/28/04  He makes mention of the title of Episode III, some of the audience members chuckled and snickered and he added that the title was going to be, "...Yet Another Disappointment" *more laughing*.  At another point Kilborn is summarizing the film and at the bottom of the screen the words, "Jedi Dork Alert!" flash.
[3] In The News skit 7/28/04 The show interviews "Vader":
KILBORN: Do you like the title?
VADER: Craig, I am your father.
KILBORN: Heh heh, you're Darth Vader, now tell me what you think of the title.
VADER: But, I am your father. Your mother was really into Star Wars and we had a one night stand at a Comfort Inn *audience laughter*
KILBORN: I'm totally shocked by this, why are you telling me now? And why do you wear that mask?"
VADER: Because I'm embarrassed that you're my son. *audience laughter*
