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