'''''How It Should Have Ended''''' is an Internet parody series depicting alternate endings for popular movies. It was started by Daniel Baxter and Tommy Watson, featuring Tina Alexander. The episodes are hand drawings given animation, and augmented with special effects and music. Each features an original "ending" that ranges from crazy awesome crossovers, to ridiculous and funny developments, to deconstructing it by [[WhyDontYaJustShootHim simply shooting the villain]] or [[TakeAThirdOption taking a third, sensible action]]. It also hosts featurettes such as the ''Super Cafe'' SpinOff, and some comics.

The site [[http://www.howitshouldhaveended.com/ can be found here]], and their Website/YouTube channel is [[http://www.youtube.com/user/HISHEdotcom here]].

Now has a [[ShoutOut/HowItShouldHaveEnded Shout-Out]] page.

!!Tropes used in spoofs:

%%If one episode references another movie that shares a cast member with the main subject, please put it on the Shout Out page, unless the real actor voices the characters.
* ActuallyPrettyFunny: After Captain America gets fed up with Superman and Batman making fun of him, this happens:
-->'''Cap:''' But wait! Shh! Do you guys hear that?\\
'''Batman:''' Hear what?\\
'''Cap:''' Do I hear the JusticeLeague calling?\\
'''Superman:''' I don't hear anything.\\
'''Batman:''' Yeah, me neither.\\
'''Cap:''' [[Film/TheAvengers Exactly!]]\\
'''Superman:''' (laughs)\\
'''Batman:''' Whammo!\\
'''Superman:''' Captain America burn!
* AffablyEvil: Their interpretation of Darth Vader as a highly quirky individual, who stops to gleefully run around the galaxy informing everyone when he discovers he has kids!
-->'''Vader''': I have a ''daughter'' too! That is ''wonderful!'' I must tell everyone!\\
'''Emperor''': You see what you did? Who knows how long he'll be running around like that! Do you ''realise'' how annoying it is to put up with him this way?!
* AffectionateParody: Sometimes. They also have a knack of making fun of films but making fans of the film laugh as well as haters. One example of this is their take on ''Film/TheSocialNetwork''. While it does change the ending, it doesn't actually point out the many logical problems with the movie, just presents the events in a funnier way.
* AlasPoorVillain: In-universe, the "I'm just a lonely Zombie" song from Resident Evil.
* AllJustADream: Indy believes his exploits in ''Kingdom of the Crystal Skull'' to be this.
* AllStarCast: [invoked] Parodied in the ''[[OceansEleven Ocean's 40]]'' trailer.
* AlwaysSomeoneBetter: Batman and Groot started a CatchPhrase duel: "I'm Batman", "I am Groot", "I'm Batman", "I am Groot", and so on for a while. Batman got the hiccup, and Groot won.
* AlternateCharacterInterpretation:
** One of [[Film/TheWizardOfOz Glinda the Good Witch]] becomes revealed in-universe after one of the Munchkins shoots the Wicked Witch of the West:
-->Well, this ruins my plan to send you [Dorothy] on a journey, and teach you a lesson, and eventually have you ''kill the Wicked Witch yourself!''
** One of [[SuperMarioBros Bowser]] becomes revealed in one of the other videos: he witnessed Mario slaughter his people, and so decided to call Princess Peach for negotiations. Unfortunately, Mario always interrupts, and nearly kills Bowser in the process.
** Bella from ''{{Twilight}}'' when turned is ''not'' a VegetarianVampire like the Cullens and is pretty damn happy about it.
-->'''Bella:''' Let's go eat some PEOPLE! Woo!
* AnticlimaxCut: See "How The Batman v Superman SDCC Teaser Should Have Ended", and get ready for a very violent fight between Superman and Batman... or not.
-->'''Superman:''' Wanna take some cofee?
-->'''Batman:''' Yes
* ArmourIsUseless: Invoked during ''Return of the Jedi''.
--> '''Stormtrooper''': We're wearing armor and these Ewoks are ''still'' killing us!
* ArtEvolution: The animation became livelier as the show progressed.
* ArtifactTitle: The series became more about random ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' or ''WesternAnimation/RobotChicken''-style skits.
* ArtShift: "[[WesternAnimation/TheLEGOMovie The Lego HISHE]]" is animated in stop motion with real Franchise/{{LEGO}}.
* AssShove: Film/PulpFiction has Butch choosing to make sure that his treasured watch is NOT forgotten thanks to an airhead girlfriend.
-->'''Butch:''' "In fact...I'm continuing the tradition, baby!"
* AwardSnub: InUniverse. For the 2012 Best Picture Summary where Harry, Snape, and Voldemort wonder why their latest effort in ''Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2'' didn't get a Best Picture nomination.
* AWizardDidIt: Zig-zagged in ''Harry Potter''. [[spoiler:Snape]] initially just says, "Magic. Duh." when explaining how [[spoiler:he survived his apparent death by Nagini]], but immediately goes on to explain ''how'' he used magic to do it: [[spoiler:one of the backup plans he'd naturally prepared as a double agent, honey badger antivenom]].
* BadGuyBar: The Villain Pub introduced in the ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cmhEg-nDGJA Thor : The Dark World]]'' video.
* BeautyIsNeverTarnished: Averted in "How ''Tangled'' should have ended," via an OverlyLongGag of random things getting stuck in Rapunzel's hair.
* BlackBeadEyes: Most of the characters have these.
* BlatantLies: The ''OceansEleven'' parody ''Ocean's 40'' movie trailer said that it was BasedOnATrueStory.
* BondGunBarrel: "How ''Casino Royale'' Should Have Ended" begins with all the official ''Film/JamesBond'' actors up to that point (in order of appearance: Creator/DanielCraig, Creator/PierceBrosnan, RogerMoore, Creator/GeorgeLazenby, Creator/SeanConnery, and TimothyDalton), plus [[spoiler:Creator/WoodyAllen, [[TheLastOfTheseIsNotLikeTheOthers James Bond's nephew]] in ''Film/CasinoRoyale1967'',]] arguing over who gets to shoot at the camera.
* BondOneLiner: Newt delivers one to the queen after helping Ripley and Bishop gun it down in ''Aliens''.
--> "You're mostly dead now. Mostly."
* {{Bowdlerise}}: When Drax asks Star-Lord what exactly life is giving them a chance to do, Star-Lord answers, "To give a crap!", instead of the more profane response from he gave in the movie.
* {{Breakout Character}}s: The episodes with Franchise/{{Superman}} and Franchise/{{Batman}} at the cafe are considered by many to be the best shorts. As a result, they received have their own show: ''Super Cafe''.
* ButtMonkey: Spider-Man. Especially at the end of ''The Avengers'' video.
-->'''Spider-Man:''' When do I get to come in the cafe?\\
'''Superman:''' Dude, nobody said you can't come in here.\\
'''Batman:''' Yeah, this is a public place.\\
'''Spider-Man:''' ... I've been hanging around out here for two years!\\
'''Superman:''' Yeah, we know.\\
'''Batman:''' It's been hilarious.
** This seems limited to the Raimi/[=McGuire=] Spider-Man. The Webb/Garfield Spidey is nowhere as whiny.
%% * TheCameo
* CallBack
** The Pacific Rim parody featured Godzilla coming out of the rift instead of Slattern and then die immediately. In the Godzilla parody Gypsy Danger appears to fight the Kaiju, only to die immediately by Godzilla's Atomic Breath. Furthermore Gypsy opens up with its swords as Riley suggested.
** In TheAmazingSpiderMan2 parody, the lab workers close the lid on the eel tank, using similar reasons to the lab workers taking Flint Marko out of the sand pit in their parody of SpiderMan3
** "When Captain America throws his mighty shield" turns up again at the end of the second movie, as Batman and Superman add to the list of things that don't yield.
* CannotKeepASecret: Batman apparently reveals (or tries to reveal) his SecretIdentity to every girl he finds attractive.
-->'''Iron Man:''' You mean to tell me you've never revealed your secret identity before?\\
'''Batman:''' Uh, no.\\
'''Superman:''' Ha! Try every girl you've ever dated!\\
'''Batman:''' What?\\
'''Superman:''' "Oh, I'm Bruce Wayne, and I like you! Let me tell you my big secret!"\\
'''Batman:''' Oh, [[Film/SupermanII you're one to talk,]] [[LaserGuidedAmnesia Mr. Mind Eraser]].
* CanonDiscontinuity: [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] in-universe, after Batman has declared that he has the power to "''make an incredibly awesome movie!''":
-->'''Superman:''' So, we're just going to pretend like ''those'' guys never happened? ''[Points to a table with [[Film/BatmanReturns Penguin]], [[Film/BatmanForever Two-Face, the Riddler]] and [[Film/BatmanAndRobin Mister Freeze]]]'' Is that what we're doing?\\
'''Batman:''' Yep.
* CardboardPrison: IronMan is GenreSavvy enough to point out that if he hadn't killed Obadiah Stane the latter was ''eventually'' going to escape imprisonment. Franchise/{{Batman}} engages in SuspiciouslySpecificDenial about it:
--->'''Batman:''' Yeah...that never happens.
** Later referenced in the Film/BatmanBegins parody, when Ra's al-Ghul and Scarecrow break out of Arkham for a night at the [[BadGuyBar Villain Pub]].
* {{Catchphrase}}:
** Film/{{Batman}}:
*** "I'm Batman." / "Because I'm Batman!" Based on the recurring line from the films.
*** "You wanna know my secret identity?" based on Batman revealing his secret identity to all his girlfriends.
** Film/IronMan: "Tank missile!" To the point even non-Tony Stark characters played by Creator/RobertDowneyJr use it.
* CatchPhraseInterruptus: Sometimes Batman doesn't get time to finish exclaiming, "Because I'm Batman!" due to the video ending. Superman also interrupts an instance of Bats trying to use the phrase as a HandWave as he asks Tony Stark to continue his story.
* CharacterizationMarchesOn: The first time Batman said, "Because I'm Batman!", it sounded more subdued than later instances.
* CharlieAndTheChocolateParody: Mostly the "scary tunnel" sequence.
* ChekhovsGun: The ''Wizard of Oz'' video contains a literal example. As Dorothy rides a carriage through Munchkinland, some Munchkins with guard uniforms and giant guns march behind her. See WhyDontYouJustShootHim below for the payoff.
* ClassicalMythology: [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]].
-->'''[[VideoGame/GodOfWar Kratos]]''': [[YouLookFamiliar Ares?]] I already killed you.
-->'''Mars''': Nope, I'm [[PaletteSwap Mars]], the [[InsistentTerminology ''Roman'']] God of War... [[BlatantLies Tooootally different.]]
-->'''Kratos''': NO!
-->'''Mars''': Aww, man.
* ChristmasEpisode: "The Holiday Movie Special".
* CloseOnTitle: "How ''Film/TheDarkKnightRises'' Should Have Ended," closes on the HISHE logo, following Creator/ChristopherNolan's lead.
* ClumsyCopyrightCensorship: "How ''Frozen'' Should Have Ended" had a cover of "Let it Go" during the first stinger, but Disney made ''HISHE'' release a version with different lyrics.
-->Where'd it go? Where'd it go?\\
That other song is gone!
* ComicallyMissingThePoint: ''The Dark Knight'' vid has the Chechen completely miss the point of Joker's "magic trick."
-->'''Chechen:''' That wasn't a magic trick! I saw the pencil just went up into his eye, this is lame...
* ContrivedCoincidence: According to Batman, the destruction of Krypton being "a fixed point in time", as a reason [[Series/DoctorWho the Doctor]] didn't save it. According to the Doctor, Batman's utility belt having anything he needs for the situation at hand.
* CoolOldGuy: Creator/JimmyStewart claims he's one in "A Look Back at ''Film/ItsAWonderfulLife''.
* CrossOver:
** [[Franchise/{{Terminator}} How Terminator Should End]] is actually a [[SoCoolItsAwesome fantastic]] mock trailer crossover between ''Terminator'' and ''[[spoiler:Film/BackToTheFuture]]''.

** Every superhero movie video will end up in the cafe with Superman and Batman.
** Likewise, movie villains now argue in the Villain Pub. The first one in ''Film/ThorTheDarkWorld'' features [[Film/ManOfSteel Zod]] in a neckbrace and [[Film/TheDarkKnight the Joker]] alongside Loki, with [[Literature/TheSilenceOfTheLambs Hannibal Lecter]], [[Film/TwoThousandOneASpaceOdyssey HAL 9000]], and the Franchise/{{Predator}} in short cameos and a badly injured Malekith showing up.
** The WebVideo/HonestTrailers narrator cameos in the end of "How Star Trek Into Darkness Should Have Ended", after HISHE created a skit in the WebVideo/HonestTrailers video of ''Film/StarTrekIntoDarkness''.
** In ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'', Grand Pabbie takes a young Elsa to [[spoiler:[[Film/XMen The Xavier School for Gifted Youngsters]]]].
* CurseCutShort:

** Logan's "Go f*** yourself" to Xavier and Erik gets interrupted by the future Logan's warnings about upcoming dangers.
* CutLexLuthorACheck
** Elektro plays with Spider-Man by tossing him around and making music with it. Spider-Man gave him an idea: he should try Dubstep. Great idea, Elektro loves being a DJ!
** One of the random techs lampshades this in the ''Hunger Games'' parody...
-->'''Tech:''' Hey, you guys ever think we should use all this money and technology to actually ''solve'' the world's problems? End world hunger? Save the rainforest? No, just me? We'd rather kids fight to the death. Okay... Just thought I'd ask.

-->''If I could save time in the bottles of time\\
then I could save all of the time''
* DiscreditedMeme: InUniverse, TheStinger of "How Skyrim Should Have Ended" has everyone show their hatred of the "arrow to the knee" meme;
-->'''Guard:''' I used to be like [the Dragonborn]. Then I took an arrow-\\
'''Crowd:''' SHUT UP!
* DisneyDeath: Discussed in "How ''Captain America: The Winter Soldier'' Should Have Ended", after Batman points out that quite a few denizens of the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse had their deaths become either undone or revealed as fake (never mind the fact that Batman faked his own death in ''[[spoiler:Film/TheDarkKnightRises]]'').[[note]]Specific Marvel-related examples either mentioned or referenced during this scene include [[Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier Nick Fury]], [[Series/AgentsOfSHIELD Coulson]], [[Film/TheAvengers Tony Stark]], [[Film/ThorTheDarkWorld Loki]], and [[Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy Groot]].[[/note]]

'''Captain America:''' ''(laughs)'' None of us are gonna die! That's silly talk.\\
'''Batman:''' Okay, well we'll see.

-->"Can you imagine what it would've been like if we had walked the entire way?"
-->([[EverybodyLaughsEnding Everybody starts laughing]])
-->"It's funny because it's extremely far."
* DownerEnding: Usually played for laughs.
** Since a Munchkin killed the Wicked Witch before Dorothy took her journey through Oz, she went home early, and never took the Scarecrow, the Tin Man, and the Cowardly Lion to have their desires granted by the Wizard, and we see their bad fates. Oz then creates Mood Whiplash as he tries to cheer up the viewers.
-->'''Oz''': Eh, don't be sad. I didn't really ever give them what they asked for in the first place!

** All the children that Anakin killed in ''Film/RevengeOfTheSith'' show up as Jedi-Ghosts at the end of ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi'', and Padmé is not a Force Ghost.

--> {{Beat}}
--> '''Yoda''': Awkward, this is.
** "{{Slender}} [[Film/TheHungerGames Games]]" ends with [[TheSlenderManMythos Slender Man]] [[KillEmAll killing,]] [[AlternateCharacterInterpretation or doing whatever he does]] [[KillEmAll to all the characters.]]

-->'''Commissioner Gordon:''' Well, poop. I guess that means we're screwed. (explosion)
** ''The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2'' has Alice tells the Volturi exactly what will happen if they choose to fight them, to try and convince them to back down. The Volturi thank her for [[NiceJobBreakingItHero giving them foreknowledge]] of what to avoid, then they kill her and then proceed to [[KillEmAll massacre everyone]] except for Jacob and Bella's daughter.
** ''Film/JurassicPark'' has the T-Rex eat Grant, Sattler, the kids and Mr. Arnold, and it's implied that a poison-spitting dinosaur kills Hammond, Malcolm and [[Series/{{Lost}} Frank Lapidus]] (who was piloting the helicopter that saved Hammond and Malcolm).
** Since Gandalf made Bilbo destroy the Ring in ''Film/TheHobbit'', our heroes are unable to defeat the dragon, who apparently burns them as they try to flee.
** ''Film/{{Inception}}'' (before the credits) ends with Mal pointing out Cobb and his team in Fischer's dream and dream security killing them. However, after that, [[spoiler: we have the beach party ending, which isn't much of a downer.]]
--> '''Mal''': There they are.\\

-->'''Dutch:''' You idiots! There are weapons on the chopper!
* EasterEgg: At the end of "How ''The Avengers'' should have ended," not only do the boxes link to the videos about the Avengers' solo movies, and the onscreen heroes to their movies' parodies, but Superman's and Batman's tabletop and everything on it links to other vidoes featuring the duo.
* EnemyMine: The Film/DCCinematicUniverse incarnations of Batman and Superman form an alliance with the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse version of Ultron against the MCU Avengers.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: PlayedForLaughs in the bonus scene for ''Film/TheHungerGames'', "The Careers and the Tree," when Cato solemnly warns the others in the group not to burn Katniss out of the tree or cut each other's throats in their sleep.

** In the ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier'' video, a [[spoiler: potted Groot]] can be seen passing by the window of the cafe for a couple seconds, presumably being carried by Rocket.
* FridgeLogic: [[invoked]] They often show more common sense or realistic ways for the movies to have ended invoking this trope.
* FunnyAneurysmMoment: In-universe. As Six notices in the ''HaloReach'' short, one way to make an introduction ''really'' awkward is if every comment you make only keeps highlighting each character's eventual death.
* FunnyBackgroundEvent:
** Occurrences during Batman's chats with {{Wolverine}} and Emma Frost in "How ''Film/XMenFirstClass'' Should Have Ended" include [[Film/TheIncredibleHulk Hulk]] sitting with PowerGirl, TheFlash sharing a booth with [[WesternAnimation/HarveyBirdmanAttorneyAtLaw Harvey Birdman]], and Spider-Man waiting outside for an invite.
** ''Film/ThePhantomMenace'' had George Lucas and several aliens and creatures from works other than ''Star Wars'' in the seats of the Galactic Senate.
* GRatedDrug: Willy Wonka decided to install the infamous scary tunnel while on a sugar high.
* GenreSavvy:
** Spider-Man in his final battle with Venom knows full well [[CharacterShield that he won't die]].
** Six hears Carter's inspirational opening, [[TemptingFate heavily tempting their fate]], and knows immediately how each of the members will die. [[spoiler: Then knows that he's a dead man too if he lingers with these guys and runs for the hills]].
** Jack in ''Film/{{Titanic}}'' knows full well that he's doomed to freeze to death and Rose is going to hog the debris for herself.
** Tony Stark realizing that ''Film/IronMan3'' has the exact same premise as ''WesternAnimation/TheIncredibles''.
** Randy explains the rules for surviving horror movies in ''Film/{{Scream 1996}}''. Except this time, they're along the lines of "don't date creepy guys, have parents who care, call for help, and attack the killer if they go down." [[spoiler: Turns into WrongGenreSavvy when Freddy Krueger shows up]]. Tying in with the "have parents who care" rule, a mother tells her son he's not leaving the house due to a masked killer on the loose.
* GilliganCut: From [[Franchise/StarWars Darth Vader]] anticipating how [[ExactWords excited]] his long-lost son is going to be when they meet, to Luke Skywalker's BigNo.

* GroinAttack:
** The easy way to defeat [[Film/TheTexasChainsawMassacre2003 chainsaw guys from Texas]].
** James Bond gets repeatedly beaten as he asks viewers to subscribe.
** How Jane determines Loki is still alive in the ''Film/ThorTheDarkWorld'' video.
* GutturalGrowler: Parodied in the ''Dark Knight'' vid.

'''Superman:''' Well it's about ti- wait, is that your new stage voice?\\
'''Batman:''' ''Yeah. So?''\\
'''Superman:''' Well, what are you doing, gargling marbles? I can barely understand you.
* TheGuardsMustBeCrazy: Pretty much what the ''Franchise/AssassinsCreed'' parody boils down to.
* HandWave: From the ''Iron Man 3'' video:
-->'''Tony Stark:''' You know what bugs me?\\
'''Batman:''' What?\\
'''Tony Stark:''' [[Film/TheDarkKnightRises How you got back to Gotham City after climbing out of that prison on the other side of the planet.]] Why don't you explain that?\\
'''Batman:''' Why do so many people have a problem with this? I said, ''it's because...I'm Batma-''\\
'''Superman:''' [[CatchphraseInterruptus Can we get back to the story, please?]]
* HeroicComedicSociopath: Kratos amusingly decides to kill every last god he can find. But not even he can kill [[spoiler: Morgan Freeman.]]
* HeroicSacrifice: [[Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger Captain America]] is determined to invoke this, even though there are other and better options available to him.
* HeroInsurance: Superman laments that he doesn't have this, but Batman does.
--> '''Batman''': I'm ''Rich'' Batman!
* HilariousOuttakes: "A Look Back at ''ItsAWonderfulLife''"
* HypocriticalHumor: Megatron jokingly asks if the aliens in ''Film/{{Battleship}}'' look like the pegs from [[TabletopGame/{{Battleship}} the game]], and proceeds to rant about how some movies completely alter iconic designs. To highlight Megatron's hypocrisy, this video portrays him with the same design from the live-action ''Film/{{Transformers}}'' movies, and Optimus Prime as his G1 incarnation (per the events of "How ''Film/TransformersRevengeOfTheFallen'' Should Have Ended").
* IChooseToStay: Thor decides to stay on Midgard with [[HotScientist Jane Foster]] instead of return to Asgard and fight Loki.
* IKnowYouKnowIKnow: During the ending of ''Film/SherlockHolmes'', Holmes and Moriarty counter each others' preparations as they fall from Reichenbach Falls. Unfortunately, they did not account for the rocks at the bottom.
* ILoveTheSmellOfXInTheMorning: Quaritch in ''Avatar'' saying he loves the smell of CGI in the morning.
* ImAManICantHelpIt: HISHE's interpretation of Arthur, in ''Film/{{Inception}}''.
* ImperialStormtrooperMarksmanshipAcademy: Naturally parodied in the Film/ReturnOfTheJedi film.

The words written on the bombs were names of US cities: New York, Chicago, etc. However, this is a goof: these names are written the same way in both English and German.
** And in ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'', the beginning parodies the fact that the chanting from the movie's opening has no place at all in the rest of the movie. It is actually a traditional Sami chant, Sami being a group of indigenous people in Scandinavia - where the movie takes place. (Also, Kristoff happens to be Sami)

** Superman is ''very'' fond of lording all his superpowers -- and the awesome things they enable him to do -- over Batman.

-->'''Superman and Batman simultaneously''': ''Fly really fast, saving everyone from the bullets and explosions!''
-->'''Superman''': Exactly!

On Batman's suggestion, Xavier later decides to send Logan even further into the past, to the very first time Erik and Charles met him, and so he could explain everything that's going to happen.
* StealthPun: Not quite stealth, but definitely a bit sneaky. In the Film/StarTrek deleted scene, Scotty is spacing the {{Red Shirt}}s and spare parts to lighten the ship. He's even pushing an antique cannon into the airlock.

--> '''Red Shirt:''' Yeah, but... even the cannon?

* StolenMacGuffinReveal: In the ''Film/SherlockHolmes 2'' parody, Holmes and Moriarty try to one up each other in this regard with an air tank and life vest, respectively.
* StupidSacrifice:
** Captain America's HeroicSacrifice is parodied to be this in HISHE. Why couldn't Cap turn the plane around, circle for a while, find warmer water to crash land into, fly one of the bomb-planes as an escape, or try to find some other way to avoid crashing into freezing arctic water? The film proper never explains, and HISHE has a ''field day'' with it.
** Bond unsuccessfully pleads with Vesper Lynd not to drown herself.
-->'''Bond:''' Why are you doing this?
-->'''Vesper:''' I love you, James! Now I must kill myself for no reason! ''(drowns)''

* TakeThat:
** To ''Green Lantern'', who they say can only come in the cafe when he actually makes a ''good'' movie!
** To George Lucas for his ''constant'' need to edit the original Star Wars films, much to the displeasure of the fans. Luke jokes that he's glad his father's force ghost showed up as the Sebastian Shaw version, since it's the only one he'd actually be able to ''recognize''.
** As well spoofing the "Han Shot First" controversy, pointing out Han ''also'' did so in ''Empire'';

---> '''Harry''': I took a grenade to the ''face'', dude!
