HA! I found a transcript of the argument Ebert & Roeper (his new TV partner) had about Attack of the Clones on their last show. It’s hilarious! Roeper loved it; Ebert hated it. The bit about Yoda at the end is the best part:
Ebert: Listen, if you’re Yoda and you have the Force. …
Roeper: He’s a Jedi master.
Ebert: …If you encompass the Force, you don’t need no lightsaber!
Roeper: You do when you’re going up against another Jedi dude who’s also got super-duper mind powers!
Ebert: You’ve just got to go like this [makes a mind-reading gesture]. You’re Yoda, nobody can stop you.
I love that they completely drop into fanboy-speak. And how bitchy is that “He’s a Jedi master” interjection? I can just picture it. And Ebert making a “mind-reading gesture”. Hee! Man, I wish I’d seen this show!
