Comic #842

1 {scene: The new Death Star, under construction.}
1 Moff Jerjerrod: I assure you, Lord Vader, my men are working as fast as they can. The Emperor asks the impossible. I need more men.
2 Vader: Then perhaps you can tell him when he arrives.
2 Moff Jerjerrod: The emperor's coming here? We shall double our efforts!
3 Vader: Double? So now you'll have them working twice as hard as they possibly can?
4 Moff Jerjerrod: If we can mount a successful planetary invasion in ridiculously top-heavy vehicles with legs, we can do anything, Lord Vader!

I had to rewrite this at the last minute when putting this strip together. My recollection of Moff Jerjerrod's line was, "We shall redouble our efforts." And then I had Vader saying:

Redouble? So you already have them working two shifts? Now they'll work 32 hours a day?
But when I checked the script, the line was, "We shall double our efforts." I even loaded up the DVD to check, and, indeed, that's what he said.
2014-07-08 Rerun commentary: It's great having plenty of stormtrooper minifigures, for making scenes like this. I wish I had hundreds of them though, so I could have shot this scene with a really wide angle. That would have been truly awesome.
