He then remembers the present Art gave him which apparently is another kind of transmitter! Art saves the day again. How did the guards not find it? Anyway – he inserts another cartridge which give him the directions to assemble the device. And Harvey Korman is back. This time as a instruction-giving malfunctioning humanoid. We’re going to gloss over this because it is too ridiculous to put into words. Lumpy puts the damn thing together.
Downstairs the crowd gathers in front of the TV transmitter for a broadcast from the Empire called “Life on Tatooine”. In the video we head back to our favorite Tatooine canteen. There’s a Greedo lookalike! And the evil werewolf guy with the red eyes! And the band playing that damn canteen song!
Did you ever think you would see this picture?
And Harvey Korman! And Bea(trice) Arthur! Of course – makes total sense. Bea is forcing drinks on the customers when Harvey comes in with flowers for her. She won’t talk to him until he orders a drink. He does and she walks away to help another customer. He proceeds to pour his drink into a hole on the top of his head. I swear I’m not making this up.
A video transmission comes through from the Empire (so a video in the video?) ordering an early curfew and orders everyone into their homes. Bea tries to kick everyone out, but no one wants to leave. They grow a little unruly. So, like any good barmaid she decides to buy a round for the crowd and sing a song. Because of course she does. Its basically “you don’t have to go home, but you can’t stay here” in song form sung by Dorothy Zbornak.
Why is she making out with a giant hamster?
She gets passed around the room dancing with all the patrons and somehow the song evolves in an intergalactic number from Fiddler on the Roof. She gets everyone out except for Harvey who re-presents her with the flowers.
The video ends and we are back in Casa de Chewie. Clever Lumpy has used the transmitter to send a message to the Imperial troop telling them to “return to base”. The officer orders everyone to leave except for one stormtrooper. The rest leave, but the message keeps repeating. The stormtrooper realizes something is amiss. He goes upstairs to find Lumpy and his transmitter.
Commercial time! Wow, have you guys seen this movie? It is amazing. For all the right AND the wrong reasons.
Ease on down the road!
The stormtrooper takes the transmitter from Lumpy and smashes it on the ground. Lumpy runs downstairs and out onto the deck. He aims his blaster at Lumpy just when Chewie shows up! He is not having it and shields Lumpy. Han sneaks up behind the trooper and knocks the gun out of his hand. When he goes to grab the gun, Han pushes him and goes over the railing – falling a few thousand feet.
There, there Lumps
