From "Pulp Fiction" we know the French call a Big Mac a "Royale".

 

What was Marty McFly's name in 1955 in the French translation of "Back to The Future"/

In France, Calvin Klein was not well known, so they used Pierre Cardin instead.

Useless and trivial....

 

 

If Luke and Leia are siblings and both adopted... how can Leia be a princess?  Isn't a bloodline required for that title?  If she is a princess, why isn't Luke a prince?

She could be a princess if her adoptive parents are royalty... it is just a title. Luke isn't a prince because his Aunt and Uncle (who raised him) were farmers.

 

I have also wondered how Leia can remember her biological mother.... she died in child birth.

Mustard Devil called it, but Bert's answer is mighty good. Dan has three weeks of A school in Great Lakes and then he may head to VA to a ship, he'll know more in a few days. He's a great kid, we are very proud of him
