Main Characters in this Episode
- One of the originally-scripted bits for this episode was to feature Al entertaining his guests with the tale of how he was originally cast in Star Wars: Episode IV: A New Hope as "Luke Skywalker's annoying brother," followed by scenes of Star Wars with Al digitally inserted next to Luke Skywalker. Lucasfilm and George Lucas gave their approval. However, Mark Hamill did not, and the gag was cut.
