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.
One Reply to “Your random Star Wars TV reference of the week”
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.
