Episode 43: My Diplomacies, Let Me Show You Them

<<FIRST     <PREVIOUS     NEXT>     LATEST>>

One of the most fulfilling things about making this comic is being able to watch the movie in a completely new light - with the original dialogue, but with our characters overlaid onto it. This scene, in particular, now cracks us up every time we watch it.

In fact, when we got up to this scene in our scene-by-scene review of the movie before writing new strips, we all burst into spontaneous laughter as soon as we saw Qui-Gon simply walk up to the combat droids and start talking to them. From there, this strip virtually wrote itself.

Transcript

Panaka: We're not going anywhere unless you can free the pilots.
Obi-Wan: We should sneak around behind the droids.
Qui-Gon: I have a better idea. {walks straight up to them}
Qui-Gon: Right, which one of you is in charge?
Droid: State your business.
Qui-Gon: Let these men go. We're taking them to Croissant.
Panaka: Coruscant.
Qui-Gon: What he said.
Droid: Under what authority?
Qui-Gon: Don't you recognise me? I'm your commander!
Droid: ... My commander is a droid.
Qui-Gon: I'm undercover.
Droid: What is your serial number?
Qui-Gon: It's... uh... I roll for Bluff!
GM: There aren't enough dice in the world.
GM: They draw their weapons.
[SFX]: {Qui-Gon attacks with his laser sword} Whooom!
[SFX]: Krtzssh!
Obi-Wan: I don't know about "better", but it was certainly more entertaining.
