Star Wars: The Original Radio Drama, Episode 10, "The Luke Skywalker Initiative"

Ben, Luke, Han, Chewbacca and the droids hide themselves in the Millennium Falcon’s concealed smuggling compartments - and amazingly, they survive, despite Threepio’s built-in disinclination to stop talking, which nearly gives them away. Through the Force, Ben Kenobi senses a presence aboard the Death Star, and insists that he must go on alone to face it and to disrupt the tractor beam that would end any escape attempts. He leaves Luke, Han, Chewie and the droids to cool their heels in a secure area, but when R2-D2 plugs into the Death Star’s computers and locates Princess Leia on board, Luke changes the plan. After some cajoling, Han and Chewbacca accompany him on a daring raid of the Death Star’s detention block, freeing the Princess - and then plunging into more trouble in a makeshift escape into a trash compactor (x).
Oh, and hurry on over and tell Jim what you're listening to. He did this last time and it was quite fun. I'm like that nosy neighbor in the 50s sitcom. I'm probably always washing dishes or cooking or beating the kids, too. Something like this.

Beat the dirt off the dishes by smashing them off the kids. Then cook the kids.
And yeah, the part that always amused me the most was that I got served another round of drinks with the dart in my head without anyone caring. It was quite a rough pub.
