Ever get called for jury duty hoping to find a handy way out of it? Whatever you do, don’t dress up as Princess Leia, talk in a low voice and call officers of the court Imperial Guards.
On this week’s episode of 30 Rock — “The Funcooker”, Liz Lemon played by Tina Fey dresses up like Princess Leia to do just that, with hilarious results.
Here’s some dialog from the episode:
“And I don’t really think it’s fair for me to be on a jury because I’m a hologram.”
“Excuse me Imperial Guard, how long do these arson trials typically last?”
“Couple weeks proabably, and you can drop the voice.”
“This used to get me out of jury duty in Chicago all the time.”
“This ain’t Chicago, honey. Look at these people.”
