We grabbed our tissue boxes and made a list of our personal top 3 and then shared them with each other. These moments carry more than just dialogue and visuals with them. They also hold the weight of many layers of emotional depth. We break-down the characters' losses, struggles, and missed opportunities - taking all of this into account as to why they have such a heavy place in our hearts.<br /> <br />  <br /> <br /> RESISTANCE TRANSMISSIONS asked the listeners to share what they felt could be the person, place, or thing Han uses to gamble with which eventually wins him the Falcon. Up for debate were a cut of money, a larger ship, or even Chewbacca himself!
