And then left a little early, and hooked up with my sister Jett in line at the Cinerama, where we then watched Star Wars: Attack of the Clones.

... that Boba Fett is the older brother of all the Imperial Stormtroopers.
And who else thought that Boba Fett quite properly felt that he had the coolest dad in the entire Galaxy?
