It is the 40th anniversary of the airing of the Star Wars Holiday Special! And time, once again, at The Home For Wayward Girls and Fallen Women for the annual viewing of Cherry's favorite TV show. This year, George Lucas joins us (played by guest star Andy Ross). He claims he is there because, as he has often said, 'If I had the time and a sledgehammer, I would track down every copy of that show and smash it.'
