Video store assistant Randal explains to his friend Dante whatâ€™s always bothered him about The Return of the Jedi in the 1994 slacker comedy Clerks.
RANDAL: â€œA construction job of that magnitude would require a helluva lot more manpower than the imperial army had to offer.
„Iâ€™ll bet there were independent contractors working on that thing: plumbers, aluminium siders, roofers.â€
DANTE: â€œAll right, so even if independent contractors are working on the Death Star, why are you uneasy with its destruction?â€
RANDAL: â€œLook â€“ youâ€™re a roofer, and some juicy government contract comes your way; you got the wife and kids and the two-story in suburbia â€“ this is a government contract, which means all sorts of benefits.
â€œAll of a sudden these Left-wing militants blast you with lasers and wipe out everyone within a three-mile radius.
â€œYou didnâ€™t ask for that.
â€œYou have no personal politics.
â€œYouâ€™re just trying to scrape out a living.â€
Deswegen: Denkt darüber nach, bevor ihr den nächsten Todesstern zerstören wollt.
