Tread Lightly

This is an example of a random thought mixed with a curious expectation. I am a huge fan of the Star Wars franchise and like many fans I am not happy with people making fun of it. Keeping that in mind I am perfectly happy to see comedy in any form even of Star Wars if it’s done well. I have always postulated that comedy is the most difficult thing to do well.

This scene takes place right after Vader awakens in the suit.


Vader: No I can’t go on with out Padme

Emp: Oh shut up. Here, go try out your new and improved mechanical hand.

Vader walks over to a mechanical device, reaches out (Mechanical sounds whirl) and picks up the device, crushes it in his hand

Vader: Groovey (Steal from the best)

Emp: Ok Vader the first thing you need to learn is the intimidating “look”

Vader gazes at the Emperor. The Emperor pauses to comprehend, then moves on.

Emp: Next you must learn about discipline. Be firm but yielding, be hard but forgiving, be forceful but –

Vader simply force chocks a random bridge officer.

Emp: Or that…
