This post, over at e.clec.tic spaghetti, reminded me of the first time I watched The Empire Strikes Back with Monkeyboy in DC. He was 6 or 7 and we had it on video tape.
We got to the scene in the Dagobah swamp where Luke is looking for Yoda. I put the video on pause for a minute and told him "Hang on a sec pal, there's an important part coming up. Mr. Lucas wrote some lines here that I think are pretty cool. If you don't remember anything else from this movie, try to remember this."
I turned the video back on.
Luke meets a small, odd creature who seems like a pest, and who he tries to give the brush-off. (It's Yoda, but Luke hasn't figured this out yet.)
Yoda: Help you I can. Yes, mmm.
Luke: I don't think so. I'm looking for a great warrior.
Yoda: Ohh. Great warrior. [Laughs] Wars not make one great.
Monkeyboy puts the video on pause.
"Dad," he asks, "Do you think President Bush has seen this movie?"
