Script - Entrance Area

(As one enters the interior Star Tours attraction queue, one enters what looks like a repair bay, where one sees two familiar droids working a StarSpeeder in the front.  To the right is a see-through screen of plastic tiles that becomes opaque in different patterns.  The whole screen becomes opaque when advertisements are projected on it.  The advertisements that are shown on the display have to do with the different destination packages that Star Tours has to offer.  Below the screen scroll arrival and departure updates, similar to what one sees in an airport.  As patrons enter a conversation is taking place.)
 

Male Announcer 1:  "Attention please, all droids leaving the system must cleared by customs control, proof of ownership is required for all droid passengers."

C-3PO:  "'Proof of ownership?'  We droids are made to suffer such indignities."

C-3PO:  "What is it now, Artoo?"

R2-D2:  *Warbles*

C-3PO:  "Don't get technical with me!  What pressure?  The fuel pressure!?!....  Well, why didn't you say so in the first place?  Let me check."

R2-D2:  *Warbles*

C-3PO:  "Yes, I am getting a rather high read here....  Oh yes, Artoo, I am shutting off the main line right now!!!"

R2-D2:  *Warbles*

C-3PO:  "Just you get back to fixing that motivator!"

R2-D2:  *Warbles*

C-3PO: "These new transports are impossible!"

Male Announcer 2:  "Star Tours introduces the perfect getaway vacation, with exclusive tour packages to Hoth.  Now you can ski the most incredible slopes in the galaxy, or if you prefer, explore beautiful and mysterious ice caverns and the famed Echo Base of the Rebellion Forces.  And while you are there, be sure to enjoy the exhilarating ride on a taun-taun.  It's all on Hoth, and it all begins soon, only from Star Tours.  Watch for details."

C-3PO:  "Well, you'll never get me to go back to that iceberg!"

R2-D2:  *Warbles*

C-3PO:  "I don't care how safe it is now, Artoo, it gives my motivators the chills just thinking about it.  Hmmm, I would rather be sent to, the spice mines of Kessel then go back to Hoth."

Male Supervisor:  "Hey, you droids on Transport 22, get back to work!"

C-3PO:  "Now see what you have done!  We'll lose our jobs for sure."

R2-D2:  *Warbles*

C-3PO:  "Don't insult me you overgrown scrap pile!  At least I'm doing my job!"

R2-D2:  *Warbles*

C-3PO:  "Yes, I am.  So you just get back to fixing that hyperdrive motivator!"

Female Announcer:  "Will the owner of a red and black landspeeder, vehicle ID THX-1138, please return to your craft.  You're parked in a no-hover area."

C-3PO:  "I do wish I could go with you to Endor...."

R2-D2:  *Something shorts out and he warbles loudly*

C-3PO:  "On second thought, I just remembered how much I hate space travel.  You have a nice trip though, Artoo."

Female Announcer:  "Attention please.  Star Tours flight 11-19, non-stop service to Endor, is now ready for boarding at gate number 1.  All passengers please proceed to the boarding area immediately."

C-3PO:  "Get back to work, before they deactivate you!"

R2-D2:  *Warbles*

C-3PO:  "Yes, I think they would.  And hurry up, they're be needing this transport any moment now."

R2-D2:  *Warbles*

C-3PO:  "No, I don't feel sorry for you at all."

R2-D2:  *Warbles*

C-3PO:  "Well, how should I know what's wrong with the ship?  I am a interpreter, not an astromech.  However, you might just check the logic circuits, sometimes I think these new transports have a mind of the own."

Male Announcer:  "Your attention please.  All interplanetary travelers must have a current passport and the necessary visas prior to leaving the space port.  Passengers requiring assistance should visit the nearest information kiosk.  Thank you."

C-3PO: "Thank you Artoo.  I don't know what I would do without you either."

R2-D2:  *Warbles*
