No worries if you don’t want to use it, Hal; I don’t even remember who raised the issue in the first place. To what earlier line are you referring though? I don’t recall any others off-hand.
And yeah, there I did add an “s” to the end of the word, but I can make it louder. I didn’t want to just copy the earlier use of “Taking one last look at my friends.” I was worried that copying the line so soon after would be too obvious; so I had to get the word “friend” from somewhere else.
Honestly, I find it more distasteful how 3PO describes this procedure as “dangerous and sinful” or whatever, and none of our heroes even care for a second. Poe’s more worried about bumping into his ex than he is about potentially hurting or damaging this Star Wars icon. I wonder if it would be possible to slot in a little extra Poe dialogue, something like “Let’s do that!” “Well… I do know a black-market droidsmith. But he’s on Kijimi.” Maybe extend the sequence with a shot of a worried look from Rey. Gives them at least a moment to ponder over the ramifications of what they’re about to do to their “friend,” while still letting Finn make his little joke.
