(From Darths and Droids. Click for full-sized self-inflicted breakdown in negotiations.)
When Qui-Gon was caught saying, “Jar Jar, you’re a genius!” it spread through the Internet like wildfire, with more than a little nudging from the Comic Irregulars themselves.
Regardless of whatever the circumstances of the original movie may be, I’m somewhat shocked they didn’t try it again with “Help us, Jar-Jar Binks. You’re our only hope.”
But then I guess you can only do the same trick so many times before people say, “We get it. Now go away.”
(If there were a Darths and Droids drinking game, at this point Pete drinking at whatever fantasy story/RPG cliche happens to happen is worth at least two drinks.)
