:) Part 4 had a lot of laughs.  Among the parts I enjoyed....
Don Vittorio of Sicily VIII, former Godfather of Galactic Crime
Moe bitching about Louie exploding all over the bar
Tony the Hutt, though I wish there were more descriptions of him
Jimmy the Scumbag getting wasted for being a snitch by Stormtrooper #10
Skinner's "Obsession for Grand Moffs"
Homer messing up and destroying Alderaan by accident
"Obedient Droid" magazine
Artificial Marlon Brando doppelganger
Maggie and Santa making up after their fight.
Everyone else has given their glowing commentary already, but this is really a fun piece, Karsten. I hope to read Part 5 soon. :)
Homer eats a little too much Chile to strong pepper and is found with hullicinations amongst other things it speaks with a dog.

Yep, it's a supert parody you have here. :-) I'd say more but I'm jealous cause Simpmoon isn't this good. :-)
Funny, that's exactly what I was thinking, only vice versa. :)

Frink...as...Yoda?! Yikes!

Sure, Yoda acts as if he landed on Dagobah head-first most of the time, but he's not that weird, is he?

*remembers the scene where Yoda plays with Luke's flashlight*

...I rest my case.

It was so much easier to blame it on Them. It was bleakly depressing to think that They were Us. If it was Them, then nothing was anyone’s fault. If it was Us, what did that make Me? After all, I’m one of Us. I must be. I’ve certainly never thought of myself as one of Them. No one ever thinks of themselves as one of Them. We’re always one of Us. It’s Them that do bad things. - Jingo, Terry Pratchett

Comments about Bart Wars part 4.(Part one)

"            ABE

(uneasily) I...uh...I didn't - yet. I thought we could...
uh...well...sell your speeder.


           BART

You *could* have asked me."

Well it's not as if you can take it with you on the Falcon.

"            BART

Well, that's true. I always wanted a hoverboard, or at
least an ordinary skateboard, but..."

Heh hoverboard, who does he think he is? Michael J Fox?

"            LOUIE

He had a little...accident, if ya know what I mean."

Hehehehehehe, assassination of the week! Do they live or are they wormfood?

"            MIL

(quietly) Boy, what a way to go..."

Heh nicely handled, it's not like Milhouse would shoot him like Solo did.

"            HOMER

Yes. You're going to use the Princess as a bait to
lure her family on board, and then you're going to
toture *them* because they're weaker than the Princess
and will give in much sooner. How fiendishly clever!


           SKINNER

(throws his arms up) I give up!"

Awwwww Homer's on form as usual, HE'S GONNA BLOW THE PLANET UP YOU BAKA!

"            BART

But isn't that evil?


           ABE

(shrugs) Eh, as long as you don't take more than five
thousand credits, it's still in the gray zone. Now
let's hurry!"

Heh heh, gotta love that grey area. Besides it's for a good cause.

"If Solo's ship as fast as his nose is big, we ought
to make it to Alderaan in no time."

LOL What a great line, Milhouse = Asterix?

"            MIL

I had to do it. The risk was too great. Smuggling
bootleg "Pokémon" trading cards is a serious crime."

Heh nice illicit cargo. Not quite as good as doing the Kessel run with spice...

"Santa walks towards the ship while the others stop
in disbelief when they see the hunk of junk that is
the Raven."

Then again most of the Star Wars ships look like a dirty hunk of junk.

"Hey, I know she doesn't look like much, but she's got
it where it counts. Besides, I've added some small...
surprises."

The chess game?

"He turns and walks away, but he doesn't get very far
before Stormtrooper #8 guns him down.


           STORMTROOPER #9

(startled) What'd you do that for?


           STORMTROOPER #10

(disgusted) I hate snitches."

LOL He managed to hit him in just one hit? Are you crazy?!

"            MIL

(sighs) What is it n... (sees something ahead of
them) Aah!


EXT. SPACE - TATOOINE


A Star Destroyer appears behind the planet."

Ooooo now your in trouble those things have more guns than Col Gadafee.

"            BART

No, there are two. See? (pointing) One...two.


           ABE

Oh. Then I guess I'm seeing double again. Never mind."

LOL Like two is any less of a problem. They are gonna do that thing where they get them to nearly ram each other right?

Comments about Bart Wars part 4.(Part two)

"            ABE

Of course. Their cannoneers are as miserable shots as
the stormtroopers, only on a much larger scale."

Er..no it's because Turbo laser cannons are designed to hit capital starships not small ships. They have Carrack cruisers and Lancer frigates for that.

"The Raven races into deep space, pursued by the Star
Destroyers. The Imperial cruisers manage to hit the
pirate ship more frequently now."

Ok maybe they can hit small craft sometimes, evasive manoeuvres anyone?

"            SKINNER

Foul stench? (sniffs his uniform) That's "Obsession
for Grand Moffs"!"

LOL Smelly Mad Old Fat Fart.[That would be what MOFF stands for IMO]

"Homer studies the buttons carefully. After a while,
he aims at the third button - but accidentally hits
the fourth. He immediately realizes his mistake, but
it is too late."

Awwww baaaadddd. And that's why Homer should be kept away from the main cannon controls.

"            ABE

No! My head hurts, my liver's acting up again, I felt
a great disturbance in the Force as if millions of
voices cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced,
and don't get me started on my prosthetic hip!"

Heh nice one. He'll need a prosthetic head by the end...

"            ABE

Let's try a different approach. (places the blindfold
over Bart's eyes)"

Yay! Blindfighting, although why he'd need to do that is beyond me...

"            MIL

(giggles childishly) Heh, right at his bu..."

Heh heh, stupid Jedi.

"            ABE

In my experience, there's no such thing as luck."

Too right, you make your own luck.

"            MIL (CONT'D)

The microwave oven? You sure?


Santa nods."

Sw33t it's got a microwave oven. Didn't expect that on a tub like that.

"            SKINNER

(almost a whisper) She lied to us."

Well duh, you blew the planet up anyway.

"            ABE

Eh, planets are big. Not even a stormtrooper could
miss one."

Eh you'd be surprised.

"            ABE

That's no moon. It's an artificial Marlon Brando
doppelganger. (looks closer) No, wait, it's a space
station. But the similarity is remarkable."

LOL That's gotta be the best line in this part so far!

"            ABE

(puts a hand on his shoulder) You can't win. You
wouldn't stand a chance against a jittery old woman
with cataracts. But luckily for you, there *are*
alternatives to fighting."

Heh you underestimate how much damage a granny with a brick in a handbag can do.

Well it's not as funny as part 2 but there's some good lines, there are some good bits with Homer, especially the bit with where he doesn't understand Skinner and he blows the planet up by mistake. The constant taking the p*8s out of Milhouse is funny too although it's wearing a little thin now. It was good how you handled the scene with Louie and Milhouse.  Abey's line about the Death Plant was good too and when he was seeing double. If there was a bit I disliked it would be Abey One going on about the force but that was in the film anyway. Heh keep on with it, I can't wait to see Abey and Darth Homer have it out.

Heh heh that’s what comes from playing to many Star Wars games and mods... :uhdrop:

Admiral Stan: Quick we need fighter cover! Don't let em flank you! Target their weapons godammit! Get those frigates out there! Fire the turbo lasers! - The kind of thing I'd scream while playing on Rebellion or that Homeworld mod.

Scary non? ;D

Homer'c comment about the Re: OPINIONS - Bart Wars

Post by aoifestorm » Wed May 01, 2002 6:59 pm

:)  I enjoyed Part 5, especially the trash compactor scene.  Among my favorite parts....
Homer's comments about the upcoming execution of the guy who invented Mountain Dew
The crossword clues gag
Bart explaining how he and Mil gambled away their stormtrooper armor at a casino on a seedy planet
The gag with Mil and Bart in Lisa's cell
Skinny on his celi with his mom
of course the garbage chute scene, especially the mutant tomato, and Lisa figuring out how to get out of there.
I am sure the next part will be fun as always, Karsten. :)
Homer eats a little too much Chile to strong pepper and is found with hullicinations amongst other things it speaks with a dog.
