Sith, short form

Via funkaoshi, who has some kind of link groove on, I came across the abridged script to Revenge of the Sith. I would like to extract a few particularly clever bits, but in all honesty, the whole thing is pretty good (runs out of steam by the end?). I think that my favorite part is the constant reference to Mace Windu as SAMUEL L. MOTHERFUCKING JACKSON, but I also like this bit:

EXT. KASHYYK

YODA leads an army of WOOKIEES to fight against DROIDS. The scene is utterly superfluous and present solely to have a scene containing WOOKIEES. It also serves to make the STAR WARS UNIVERSE seem even smaller with more cameos by characters from the original trilogy.

CHEWBACCA

And later on:

IAN MCDIARMID appears in a HOLOGRAPH to one of the CLONE TROOPERS.

IAN MCDIARMID

Execute order 66.

CLONE TROOPER

Kill all shrieking CGI creatures.
(to his troop) Alright men, shoot down the giant Iguana.

IAN MCDIARMID

Oh, and order 67.

CLONE TROOPER

Jedi, too. Got it.

They shoot at EWAN, who falls into the water.
