    Trying to be as tackful as I can. Has anyone else ever noticed the Jar Jar big "O" scene in the film? It's this silly little noise/sound thing that Jar Jar does in the film while him and Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon are in the Bongo. Look for it right when Obi-Wan says: "Powers back on." Then watch and LISTEN for how would you say... Jar Jar's release. Its quite disturbing. My friends and I all get a kick out of this when it happens. For the life of me I can't figure out why he does it, but he does. Enjoy.

    Qui-Gon uses the Force to make him calm down but, as Obi-Wan points out, he goes too far. What you're referring to is when Jar Jar comes to. Err.. that is to say, when he wakes up.

    Or wait.. it might be when Qui-Gon first puts him to sleep. Anyway, it's one of those..

    I think he's referring to the "Ooooh" sound he utters towards Qui-Gon just before Obi-Wan says "Power's back".
    I always think about this as well, but I don't think it's particularly disturbing. I guess it's just some sort of gungan habit. When they've yelled at someone, they always say "Ooooh" ;)



    Gungans - they are weird

    Yeah. Isn't that when Jar Jar wakes up? He kinda blinks funny and goes, "OOoohh.." Like, "Oh, my head."

    No, it's when they're inside the cave, waiting for Obi-Wan to fix the bongo. You've got the scene mixed up! :)



    Scenes - they can mix up

    Nope. Just checked the DVD. He does do this weird Donald Duck kinda frustrated noise at that part but the really questionable sounding one is when Qui-Gon puts him to sleep. Then right after Obi-Wan says, "You overdid it..." Although I did mix up the going to sleep and waking up parts. It's the going to sleep part where he makes the noise.

    There is nothing weird with that sound. He moans because Qui-Gon puts him to sleep. The other sound, however, seemingly comes out of nowhere. If you can explain it, I'll be impressed.



    Jar Jar has many sounds

    Eh, Jar Jar's weird. But I think it's just a noise of frustration with the whole situation. But c'mon.. his going to sleep noise is disturbing. Listen to it.

    I'm not in the gutter. I'm perfectly satisfied with "noise of frustration". In fact, I'm impressed ;)



    Gutters - they exist
