Six young actors gathered on a Hollywood soundstage on May 4, 1994. The six eyed each other warily, made small talk, shared smokes outside the stage door and reveled in the good fortune of being chosen for the pilot for a new series called Six of one. “That day was really strange, I was kind of like, ‘Hi, I don’t know who you are, but hopefully we’ll be working together for the next 12.000 years’.” recalled Matthew Perry.

This will be a day long remembered.  It has seen the end of Kenobi, it will soon see the end of the Rebellion.

"I had always heard your entire life flashes in front of your eyes the second before you die. First of all, that one second isn’t a second at all, it stretches on forever, like an ocean of time… For me, it was lying on my back at Boy Scout camp, watching falling stars… And yellow leaves, from the maple trees, that lined our street… Or my grandmother’s hands, and the way her skin seemed like paper… And the first time I saw my cousin Tony’s brand new Firebird… And Janie… And Janie… And… Carolyn. I guess I could be pretty pissed off about what happened to me… but it’s hard to stay mad, when there’s so much beauty in the world. Sometimes I feel like I’m seeing it all at once, and it’s too much, my heart fills up like a balloon that’s about to burst… And then I remember to relax, and stop trying to hold on to it, and then it flows through me like rain and I can’t feel anything but gratitude for every single moment of my stupid little life… You have no idea what I’m talking about, I’m sure. But don’t worry… you will someday." - American Beauty (1999)
