Darth Vader, PMP

I am a huge Star Wars nut so I found it funny to watch the opening of Return of The Jedi with the eyes of a project manager!  Who knew Darth Vader was a PM?  

JERJERROD:  Lord Vader, this is an unexpected pleasure.  We’re honored by your presence.

VADER:  You may dispense with the pleasantries, Commander. I’m here to put you back on schedule.

JERJERROD:  I assure you, Lord Vader, my men are workingas fast as they can.

VADER:  Perhaps I can find new ways to motivate them.

JERJERROD:  I tell you, this station will be operational as planned.

VADER:  The Emperor does not share your optimistic appraisal of the situation.

JERJERROD:  But he asks the impossible. I need more men.

VADER:  Then perhaps you can tell him when he arrives.

JERJERROD: The Emperor’s coming here?

VADER:  That is correct, Commander. And he is most displeased with your apparent lack of progress.

JERJERROD:  We shall double our efforts.

VADER:  I hope so, Commander, for your sake. The Emperor is not as forgiving as I am.
