Voice of Director: Christopher Walken, Han Solo screen test. Okay, Chris, whenever you’re ready.
Christopher Walken: “I’m Captain of.. the Millenium.. Falcon. Chewie here.. tells me.. you’re looking for passage.. to the.. alderaan system.”

Voice of Director: “Yes, indeed, It’s a fast ship.”

Christopher Walken: “Fast.. ship? You’ve never heard.. of the.. millenium falcon? It’s the ship.. that made the kessel run.. in less than.. 12 parsecs. She’s.. fast enough.. for you.. old man..” That sucked! I’m sorry.. [ turns and walks away ] You know.. I had it..

Voice of Director: C-3PO screen test. Okay, C-3PO.. I’m sorry. Who’s in there?

Richard Dreyfus: It’s Richard Dreyfus! [ removes mask ] Damn you! I told you I didn’t want to wear the damn mask!

Voice of Director: Okay. Just do the scene. “What I really need is a droid who understands The binary language of moisture vaporators.”

Richard Dreyfus: “Vaporators? Sir, my first job was programming binary load lifters. Very similar to your vaporators in most respects.”

Voice of Director: Thank you very much.

Richard Dreyfus: [ upset ] Listen, I can do that better, okay?

Voice of Director: Thanks, but we’ve got all we need..

Richard Dreyfus: Look! I don’t need this! I was in “Jaws”, okay?!

Voice of Director: Okay. Thanks.

Voice of Director: Walter Matthau, Obi Wan Kenobi screen test. Alright, Walter, here we go. “I’ve never heard of them Hitting anything this big before.”

Walter Matthau: “They didn’t. But we are meant to think they did. These tracks are side-by-side. Sandpeople always ride single file to hide their numbers.”

Voice of Director: “These are the same Jawas that sold us R2 and 3PO.”

Walter Matthau: [ confused ] Jawas? What the hell is this picture about, anyway?

Voice of Director: Well, Walter, it’s a space adventure about a magical force, and all the people and creatures that..

Walter Matthau: Oh, Christ! [ walks off ]

Voice of Director: Walter? Walter?

Announcer: “Star Wars”, the 20th Anniversary home video. Available at video stores everywhere.
