But I wonder, did Cloud City send Boba Fett an invoice for the carbon freezing.
While Lando escaped with Leia and Chewie, Lobot was still around to pick up the pieces. While Tabana gas is profitable, after the Empire's cut, every credit counts. And those Unghnauts who work in the carbon freezing facility are backed by a strong union - pay or play is their motto.

Re: recent billing statement
Dear Mr. Fett;
Re; the recent invoice you have submitted, some issues have come to our attention requiring some discussion and adjustments.
Regarding your invoice, Huttcorp standing policy is to process these items on a net-30 basis without fail. However, for tax reasons, our accounting department is located on the second planet of the Kelfraib system, which, you may know, has a rotational period of 16,0043.5 hours. We realize this may cause you some small difficulties over interest accrued, but as a gesture of the Mighty Jabba's legendary hospitality, I have been authorized to make a special exception in your case, and round the .5 hours down in your favor. We don't extend this expedited "walking thru" of billing paperwork for just anyone, only those most favored by Jabba. Please don't tell rival spice gangs of this discount, as it tends to create disharmony and bad feelings in the sector. Also, we will have you killed.
Additionally, to enable the expedited re-processing of your invoice, kindly re-submit the invoice with the corrections noted in detail below, as the billing cycle has already ended with the recent solar eclipse.
Corrections to account:
We would like you to amend your line item regarding the aesthetic display. This was not part of the original bid, and while Lord Jabba the King of Aesthetics considers it very artistic, nevertheless the bidding committee and our Accounting Droid is adamant we should not be required to pay for items not in the original spec document and estimate. Also, our procurement department is distressed that you did not first submit Captain Solo's Carbon-Freezing process to at least three pre-qualified competitive bidders, with appropriate Imperial Department of Environmental Safety and Preservation paperwork.
Also, we will be back-charging you for the extra shipping costs due to the weight of the carbonite-related materials and related issues.
Thank-you for your timely attendance to these trivial yet necessary corrections to the account. If you have any questions, feel free to contact our Customer Accounts Service office service department, when they re-open after the three-day weekend on Kelfraib Beta.
