*** The most obvious joke is in a galaxy named Ford. It was funny because the Ford Galaxy was a common car.

* As Dark Helmet told Lone Starr, the good guys ''are'' pretty dumb in this movie; so what does that make the bad guys, [[StupidEvil seeing as they still lost?]]

** In particular, it was common for the SpareToTheHeir to be sent away, partly for redundancy (if some disaster befalls the heir, the younger sibling is less likely to suffer the same fate), and partly to remove them from the political equation (it's much harder for the Spare to plot against the Heir while living in a Monastery, serving in the military, or running a colony in the New World). Plus, it gives the Heir something to do with their lives other than sitting around waiting for their older sibling to kick it.

** TruthInTelevision: It used to be very common to send away a young royal to a monastery or foster parents just in case something happened at the palace. It was just more common for young ''princesses'' to be sent away to a convent, which ensured her education, piety, and marriageability. Being raised by a cloistered group of nuns is pretty good insurance for making sure she has no suitors or doesn't get knocked up before [[AltarDiplomacy selling her for an alliance with the neighbors.]]

** Considering who Pizza is based on, the same thing that happened to Jabba's crime empire probably happened here; a dozen bosses like him decided to muscle in and divvy up what got left behind, and by the time the dust settles, that debt is probably going to be small beer. Plus, Druidia initially did offer to pay it all, and they probably would after Lone Starr marries into the royal family.

** Think about the competence of the Spaceball leadership. The same amount of brilliance probably extends to their engineers, who likely half-assed the job in the first place
