Eric Strothers When I was listening to this episode I had a revelation of sorts regarding Obi-Wan not remembering R2-D2 in A New Hope. This might seem over the top, but go with me on this:
Have you ever had that moment where your wife is at one of your gigs and after the show a girl you used to hook up with before you were even with your wife comes up to the two of you and starts chatting? It's like that. Obi-Wan is freaking out inside, thinking, "Oh balls. Alright Kenobi, be cool. BE COOL. Maybe he won't even say anything." And when he thinks Luke can't see him he's making the huge eyes at R2 and giving the imperceptible head shake and trying to send mental messages to him like, "Don't mention his mom, don't mention his mom. Or his dad, you little blue butthole. Or his sister."
It explains everything.
AND... (I need to get a life)
Princess Leia says she remembers her mom in ROTJ. I always took that to mean her adopted mom, not knowing she was adopted. But yeah.
