It isn't often that Stormtrooper Bruce is on his best behavior when Vader shows up unannounced, but every once in a while he feels compelled to do the right thing.
Vader: Ever since the Emperor’s nephew has been on board he comes by my quarters after his lessons.
Stormtrooper Bruce: Not to be disrespectful but is that good or bad?
Vader: It's worse than interrogating a Gungan who won't shut up.
STB: That doesn't sound good.
Vader: His parents won't let him wander the ship so his only option is exploring the officer's deck. And he always comes to my quarters.
STB: Can't you lock your door?
Vader: And risk the wrath of you-know-who? No, sadly I must endure every single unbearable minute.
STB: Trust me, I can relate.
Vader: He visits just to annoy me, that's the only explanation.
STB: I’m sure he doesn’t mean to, it just happens.
Vader: No, he means to! The names he chooses are beyond belief. Yesterday he was Bippity Boppity Boo, and before that he was Cheese Burger, and before that he was IDK. For crying out loud, what does that even mean?
STB: I don't know.
Vader: Me neither. And then he asked me if I knew Marshall Arts? And laughed when I said I'd never heard of him.
STB: Wow. Um, OK. So now you're here to learn how to play this game so you can beat the pants off him?
Vader: It's his favorite but he won't show me how it works.
STB: Well, it is a difficult game, and you're on Level 4, so you're doing great.
Vader: Stinker is up to level 39, so I have a long way to go before I destroy his score.
STB: Not very mature of you, not being disrespectful.
Vader: I‘m an officer not a baby sitter. What do you expect?
STB: If I may be so bold as to offer some advice? Before you send him back home, fill him up with lots of cookies and coffee.
Vader: That's deplorable, he's just a child. He may be driving me barking mad but I can't do that.
STB: The caffeine and sugar will make him uber-hyper, his parents will eventually forbid him from visiting you.
Vader: That's genius. I find your level of deviousness commendable.
STB: I aim to please. Now let's work on getting you to the next level.
