    R2-D2 brings the sanity to DC!

    R2-D2 helps Jon Stewart prove to Stephen Colbert that he cannot judge all robots by the actions of Terminators, Decepticons, and Cylons, toward the end of this clip. Very funny stuff. Unfortunately, this doesn't show the follow-up, with an excellent speech by Jon Stewart.
    That's my jacket!

    Why did R2-D2 have a restraining bolt on? Seems a little suspicious to me. Kinda like they are trying to lure me into a false sense of security about robots.

    Colbert also mentioned that R2 shouldn't use such language as he beeped around children. Bad robot after all!

    I saw that. I caught almost the whole show on Cspan.
    It looked like his top was about to come off there for a few seconds. Like it wasn't sitting on it's threads properly when it was turning. Is there anyone in those R2 units like the old days of Kenny Baker, or is it RC now?

    I thought it was a nice surprise though. How can you not have an impact with R2?

    Kenny was only ever in the suit when it was two-legged. The three-legged one has never had a human inside it.

    Makes sense. I guess he did the walking parts and the two legged hop thing when R2 was excited no?

    btw he ran over John Stewart's foot as he was exiting the stage, John said.
