    I've never really gotten why they try to kill him. Does anyone know why? ?[face_plain]

    They didn't like the way he looked.

    Must have been the 70's haircut.

    I'd go with the drunk theory as well. Also, here's a young farm kid who walks in to "their" bar. They probably wanted to intimidate him and try to pick a fight.




    That and Lucas had to put something in there to prompt Obi-Wan to use his lightsaber and call attention to them. ;)

    i don't think that they were actually going to kill luke...it was most probably the star wasr version of "are you calling my pint a puff?"

    they only went for their blasters when obi-wan got involved, when they probably thought it was going to kick off.

    Well it's not like they were wholesome characters to begin with. It was a wretched hive of scum and villany ;). They were intoxicated, and looking to start trouble, and it's not like Luke was super nice. "Sorry //shrug." was very sarcastic. ;)

    I agree with what others have said. They were drunk and didn't take kindly to strangers being in the bar.

    They weren't exactly sober, I'm guessing since they were in a bar. Plus, Luke has that whole really innocent looking farm boy thing going on. Now his father would have never have taken the guff he got from that pair. ;)

    They make it pretty clear why: They don't like him.

    also,it's probably not too hard to piss off someone who has spent their life with an ass for a face.

    I think it paints a broader, more colorful picture of the GFFA. They show that the galaxy is a dangerous place full of people that will kick your butt just because they don't like you. It also shows the audience that the old guy (Obi-Wan) has some pretty cool power (and a lightsaber).

    Plus, they were drunk. :D

    They looked like the type who just wanted to rumble. It's like, "Yeah, you lookin' at me? You think you're bad? C'mon, let's step outside!"

    They were bad and did not need a reason to pick on someone they did not like the looks of.

    Maybe they were loaded on juri juice. Teemto was fairly hammered off that stuff in the PS1 Phantom menace game.

    Anyhow, I agree with most of what's been said here. Here's my 2 cents: The guy (whose face looked like it was mashed against a hot frying pan) had the death sentence on 12 systems. He took one look at Luke and thought: here's a fight I can win. When Luke shrugged off his first veiled threat, it probably irritated him that Luke was ignoring him. So, combine intoxicants with frying-pan-face-guy's ego (and his intelligence, or lack thereof), and what do you get?

    Obi-Wan's handiwork.

    This brings up a key point in starwars. These two villains were obviously intoxicated. So by what? Is it the same stuff Obi drank in AOTC? (in moderation of course).

    Or is it spice? Perhaps spice = marijuana in starwars lol. People start picking fights with Jedi's on that stuff!

    If we remember right, Han transported spice so this would make him a drug trafficker, in the eyes of the Empire. Does the Rebellion have a policy on "spice?" I don't think so, darn potheads!
