Your random Star Wars TV reference of the week

On Thursday’s 30 Rock, Liz Lemon (Tina Fey) dressed up as Princess Leia, put on a wacky accent, and claimed to be able to “read thoughts,” all to get out of jury duty.

You can see a brief clip at Gawker, and the full episode at Hulu.

I’m pretty sure it’s a hell of a lot easier than that – when I was called a few years back, they dismissed a guy in his early 20’s for basically wearing his nametag upside down. Or maybe it was the Young Jedi Knights book he was reading. Whatever – I ended up having to put in six days on that jury. Sigh.

    30 Rock is a great source for Star Wars references:

    Liz Lemon, you’re my only hope! –Carrie Fisher
    Explain it to me in Star Wars… — Tracy Jordan, 30 Rock.

    So I wonder if more people will use the Princess Leia method of getting out of jury duty.
