More Stars


Bob received a deck of Star Wars playing cards from his grandma. He and I sat on the couch today and I read aloud the movie quotes listed on each card.

"So the two of clubs says, 'His cells have the highest concentration of midi-chlorians I have seen in a life form.' That's Qui Gon Jinn."

"He's saying that to the Jedi Council," said Bob.

"Okay... and the three of diamonds says, 'Laugh it up, fuzzball.'"

"Han is talking to Chewbacca and being silly."

"I think you're right, Boo. So, the queen of hearts card says, 'Anakin, you're breaking my heart!'"

"Queen Amidala? How do you break a heart, Mom?"

"Having a broken heart means that you're desperately sad and a little hopeless, maybe."

"Oh yeah, Anakin made her sad. Who is that guy with Yoda?"

"The four of clubs? That's... I don't know that character's name. You'll have to ask daddy."

"You don't know? You've never seen him before?"

"Not in Star Wars. I've seen him other places."

"But what is his name?"

"His real name is Jimmy Smitts."

"What planet is he from?"

"He's from earth and The West Wing and LA Law."

"Is The Jimmy Smitts a good guy or a bad guy?"

"I don't know him but he always seemed pretty good."

"In LA Law?"

"Yeah."

  1. I recognized one of those quotes. I clearly fail at Star Wars and Bob is the Master. Bob is the Yoda of four year olds. So small. So wise.

  2. I choose to think of Jimmy Smitts as one of the best guys.

    Oops, my geek is showing.
    I adore these posts so very much. I would say I can't wait to have conversations like this with my boy, but that's a fib...I totally milk each day, and wouldn't rush them for the world.

  5. He is The Jimmy Smitts because Bob is The Bob. And a singular The Bob he is.

  6. Make sure you bring up to Bob that the Jimmy Smitts is sometimes a bad guy. I mean, doesn't he watch Dexter? Maybe next year, he is a little young...

  9. I knew he was on the Jedi Council, but Danger Boy trumped me with an actual name.

    And I think Dusty Earth Mother is my favorite blogger name EVER.

  11. "Laugh it up, Fuzzball"? Hahahaha! I don't remember that from the movies. Bob is much funnier than Star Wars. (But maybe don't tell him that...)
