Good Call! At the point where they think C-3PO is a god, wait until C-3PO says his first words in Ewokese. Call me crazy, but it sounds exactly like one of the Ewoks says "Martin Short."

Well, seeing as Endor must have been under Imperial control for a long time (long enough to build the deathstar and whatnot) I'm sure the ewoks would have picked up a little English from whatever Imperials were in the forest.. Doesn't seem too unlikely.

It sounds to me like the Ewok says "That guy's wise," rather than "Yes, that's wise."

I've listened to the 2nd Ewok many times trying to figure out what was said. The 1st said, "That guy's wise." The 2nd then said, "Yeah, more than me short," to confirm the 1st's comment. I also watched a documentary (I can't remember which) that confirmed this.

Also when Han gets a spear shived in his face he pushes it a side and the ewok shoves it back and says "eat it."

I'm pretty sure during the scene when Leia meets the Ewok and feeds him that great looking food he says "Yo Mama" after being shot at by the Stormtroopers version of the Hells Angels. This wouldn't surprise me since Lucas has momentary lapses of reason. See Jar-Jar Binks.

If the Ewoks can speak English, then why are Luke and the rest having 3PO translate everything they say?

Well apparently "Boom" translates into any language...

The second Ewok says "More than I am short." that is why a comment above says he says "Martin Short."

Yeah, there are also some Ewoks that are saying "Whoa help!" when C3PO is 'flying'.

Yeah, it does sound like that Ewok says, "Martin Short"! Cool! I noticed that too before this post but I thought I was just crazy

I think the second ewok says "Money for sure" I think he's referring to the gold plating on C-3PO.

I AGREE WITH KAREN. HE DOES SAY "THAT GUY'S WISE" I'VE NOTICED THIS BECAUSE I'VE HEARD THAT EWOKESE WAS SUPPOSED TO BE AN ACTUAL DIALECT SPOKEN SOMEWHERE AND ENGLISH IS CLEARLY SPOKEN THERE. (ewokese isn't the name of the language obviously, but it is patterned after a real language)

Does anyone realize that Wicket learned to talk in the ewok movies :-)

also when Leia first meets Wicket I think after Leia explains her hat to her Wicket says something like, "Oh, alright."
