ANAKIN and OBIE WAN are fighting each other with lightsabers, precariously close to
the Yoda Pool. They jump around on things, and they keep almost hitting each other
but then one of them will duck just in time and not get hit. There is a bead of
sweat on Obie Wan’s brow, and his usually lighthearted temperament is tempered with
steely angriness.

You shall not knock me in! I am more powerful
than you have ever been, former master. I am more
powerful than ANYONE has ever been!

Anakin, you must let the Yoda Pool cleanse you
of your dark-side taint!

My name is still Darth Vader now!

ANAKIN lunges at Obie Wan and their struggle continues.


PADME is rocking LEIA in her arms and looking worried. Leia coos and gurgles like a
baby would. Padme is clearly waiting for something... or someone! There is a knock
at the door. Padme answers it, and it is JAR JAR.

Massa, me got a message fo’ ya, from massa
Bail Organa. He wanna take yo baby, chile.

Bail Organa? I am reluctant to trust a senator
now that Palpatine has declared himself Emperor.

He naw senator no mo,’ chile. He a king now! Yo
baby gonna be a princess!

Well I suppose that sounds pretty good. Would
you take it to him now?

Sho’nuff, massa.

Jar Jar takes little Leia in his arms and exits. Padme sits in a chair and weeps,
because she is sad that both of her babies are gone.


OBIE WAN continues to battle ANAKIN above the Yoda Pool.

If you will not listen to reason, I shall have to
knock you into the Yoda Pool by force!

Never! My midichlorians will remain just as they are!

But Anakin, your midichlorians have turned evil and
are destroying the balance in your body! Can you not
see what you have turned into!

I have turned into... A GOD!

Anakin and Obie Wan fight some more. We see PALPATINE step out of the shadows,
outside their field of view. Palpatine pulls a bubbling potion out of his cloak and
holds it over the Yoda Pool.

Obie Wan is a fool! I shall taint the Yoda Pool,
And Anakin will NOT be healed when he falls in,
but will instead be turned... turned into a
terrible robot of the Dark Side!

Palpatine pours the potion into the Yoda Pool, which turns from a cool minty blue
to a terrible swirling red and black color.

WHO DAH MAN? YODA MAN! THAT'S RIGHT BABY, YODA MAN! Thanks to the SA Forum Goons for making my life worth living. Send food please. I'm tired of stale popcorn and flat soda.

    Meditations from a Movable Weiner

    Sometimes I dream that I'm sitting in the back of the defunct Weinermobile as it careens driverless down the highway. At first I thought this was symbolic of the powerlessness I feel in life, but then I realized it's actually the Weinermobile's dream of being able to drive again.

  • Dog Reviews: The Barquis de Sade & Cleaver Dog Reviews: The Barquis de Sade & Cleaver

    Three years ago, when we were burying my uncle, Cleaver and some gross lady dog (Solstice???) showed up at the cemetery and starting going at it really loudly. It ruined everything and we had to have a "re-do" the next day and it cost a fortune. I've hated him ever since for that.
