Chancellor Valorum: The chair recognizes the senator from the sovereign system of Naboo.
Senator Palpatine: Supreme Chancellor, delegates of the senate, a tragedy has occurred... which started right here with the taxation of trade routes... and has now engulfed our entire planet... in the oppression of the Trade Federation.
Senator Dod: This is outrageous! I object to the senator's statements!
Chancellor Valorum: The chair does not recognize the senator from the Trade Federation at this time.
Senator Palpatine: To state our allegations, I present Queen Amidala, recently elected ruler of the Naboo, who speaks on our behalf.
Queen Amidala: Honourable representatives of the Republic, I come to you under the gravest of circumstances. The Naboo system has been invaded by the droid armies of the Trade -- [interrupted by Senator Dod]
Senator Dod: I object! There is no proof! This is incredible. We recommend a commission be sent to Naboo to ascertain the truth.
Senator Teem: The Congress of Malastare concurs with the honourable delegate from the Trade Federation. A commission must be appointed.
Chancellor Valorum: The point -- [interrupted by the bureaucrat]
Bureaucrat: Excuse me, Chancellor. [whispers to Chancellor Valorum]
Senator Palpatine: [Whispers to Queen Amidala] Enter the bureaucrat. The true rulers of the Republic, and on the payroll of the Trade Federation, I might add. This is where Chancellor Valorum's strength will disappear.
Chancellor Valorum: The point is conceded. Will you defer your motion to allow a commission to explore the validity of your accusations?
Queen Amidala: I will not defer. I've come before you to resolve this attack on our sovereignty now. I was not elected to watch my people suffer and die while you discuss this invasion in a committee! If this body is not capable of action, I suggest new leadership is needed. I move for a vote of no confidence in Chancellor Valorum's leadership!
Senators: [Chanting] Vote now, vote now...!
Senator Palpatine: Now they will elect a new Chancellor, a strong Chancellor, one who will not let our tragedy continue.


Watto: How are you going to pay for all this?
Qui-Gon Jinn: I have twenty thousand Republic dataries.
Watto: Republic credits? Republic credits are no good out here. I need something more real.
Qui-Gon Jinn: [gesturing to nudge Watto's mind] I don't have anything else, but credits will do fine.
Watto: No, they won't!
Qui-Gon Jinn: [nudging harder]: Credits will do fine.
Watto: No, they won't! What, you think you're some kind of Jedi, waving your hand around like that? I'm a Toydarian! Mind tricks don't work on me, only money! No money, no parts, no deal!

Fear. Fear attracts the fearful. The strong. The weak. The innocent. The corrupt. Fear. Fear is my ally. From the Star Wars main trailer sequence

Anakin Skywalker: Master, sir, I heard Yoda talking about midi-chlorians. I've been wondering...what are midi-chlorians?
Qui-Gon Jinn: Midi-chlorians are a microcopic lifeform that reside within all living cells and communicates with the Force.
Anakin Skywalker: They live inside of me?
Qui-Gon Jinn: In your cells, yes. We are symbionts with them-
Anakin Skywalker: Symbionts?
Qui-Gon Jinn: Life forms living together for mutual advantage. Without the midi-chlorians, life could not exist, and we would have no knowledge of the Force. They continually speak to you, telling you the will of the Force. When you learn to quiet your mind, you will hear them speaking to you.
Anakin Skywalker: I don't understand.
Qui-Gon Jinn: With time and training, Annie, you will. You will.

Anakin Skywalker: Are you an angel?
Queen Amidala: What?
Anakin Skywalker: An angel. I've heard the deep space pilots talk about them. They're the most beautiful creatures in the universe. They live on the moon of Iego, I think.
Queen Amidala: You're a funny little boy. How do you know so much?
Anakin Skywalker: I listen to all the traders and star pilots who came through here. I'm a pilot, you know, and someday I'm going to fly away from this place.
Queen Amidala: You're a pilot?
Anakin Skywalker: Mmhm. All my life.
Queen Amidala: How long have you been here?
Anakin Skywalker: Since I was very little, three, I think. My Mom and I were sold to Gardola the Hutt, but he lost us betting on the pod races.
Queen Amidala: You're a slave?
Anakin Skywalker: I'm a person and my name is Anakin.

Ki-Adi-Mundi: The Force is strong with him.
Qui-Gon Jinn: He's to be trained, then.
Mace Windu: No. He will not be trained.
Qui-Gon Jinn: No?!
Mace Windu: He is too old.
Qui-Gon Jinn: He is the Chosen One! You must see it!
Master Yoda: Hmmm. Clouded, this boy's future is.
Qui-Gon Jinn: I will train him, then. I take Anakin as my Padawan learner.
Master Yoda: An apprentice, you have, Qui-Gon. Impossible, to take on a second.
Mace Windu: The code forbids it.
Qui-Gon Jinn: Obi-Wan is ready--
Obi-Wan Kenobi: I am ready to face the trials.
Master Yoda: Our own council, we will keep, on who is ready.
Qui-Gon Jinn: He is headstrong and he has much to learn about the living Force, but he is capable. There is little more he will learn from me.
Master Yoda: Young Skywalker's fate will be decided later.
Mace Windu: Now is not the time for this. The Senate is voting for a new Supreme Chancellor and Queen Amidala is returning home, which will put pressure on the Federation and could widen the confrontation.
Ki-Adi-Mundi: And draw out the Queen's attacker.
Mace Windu: Go with the Queen to Naboo and discover the identity of the dark warrior. This is the clue we need to unravel this mystery of the Sith.
Master Yoda: May the Force be with you.

Nute Gunray: At last we're getting results. Again you come before us your highness.
Queen Amidala: You will not be so pleased when you hear what I have to say, viceroy. Your trade boycott of our planet has ended.
Nute Gunray: [smirks] I was not aware of such failure.
Queen Amidala: I have word that the chancellor's ambassadors are with you now and that you have been commanded to reach settlement.
Nute Gunray: I know nothing of any ambassadors. You must be mistaken.
Queen Amidala: Beware, Viceroy. The Federation has gone too far this time.
Nute Gunray: We would never do anything without the approval to the senate. You assume too much.
Queen Amidala: We will see.

Battle Droid Commander: Halt!
Qui-Gon Jinn: I'm Ambassador for the Supreme Chancellor. I'm taking those people to Coruscant.
Battle Droid Commander: Where are you taking them?
Qui-Gon Jinn: To Coruscant.
Battle Droid Commander: Coruscant...uhh...that doesn't compute. We...uhh... you're under arrest!

At last, we will reveal ourselves to the Jedi. At last, we will have revenge.

Obi-Wan Kenobi: I have a bad feeling about this.
Qui-Gon Jinn: I don't sense anything.
Obi-Wan Kenobi: It's not about the mission, Master. It's something... elsewhere. Elusive.
Qui-Gon Jinn: Don't center on your anxieties, Obi-Wan. Keep your concentration here and now, where it belongs.
Obi-Wan Kenobi: But Master Yoda says I should be mindful of the future.
Qui-Gon Jinn: But not at the expense of the moment. Be mindful of the living Force, my young Padawan.
Obi-Wan Kenobi: Yes, Master. How do you think the trade viceroy will deal with the chancellor's demands?
Qui-Gon Jinn: These Federation types are cowards. The negotiations will be short.

Mesa called Jar Jar Binks, mesa your humble servant!

Daultay Dofine: This scheme of yours has failed, Lord Sidious. The blockade is finished. We dare not go against the Jedi.
Darth Sidious: Viceroy, I don't want to see this stunted slime in my sight again. This turn of events is unfortunate. We must accelerate our plans. Begin landing your troops.
Nute Gunray: Ah, my lord, is that... legal?
Darth Sidious: I will make it legal.
Nute Gunray: And the Jedi?
Darth Sidious: The Chancellor should never have brought them into this. Kill them immediately.
Nute Gunray: Yes, my lord. As you wish.

Anakin Skywalker: I can't do it, Mom. I just can't do it.
Shmi Skywalker: Ani...
Anakin Skywalker: Will I ever see you again?
Shmi Skywalker: What does your heart tell you?
Anakin Skywalker: I hope so. Yes... I guess.
Shmi Skywalker: Then we will see each other again.
Anakin Skywalker: I will come back and free you, Mom. I promise.
Shmi Skywalker: Now, be brave and don't look back. Don't look back.

Master Yoda: How feel you?
Anakin Skywalker: Cold, sir.
Master Yoda: Afraid, are you?
Anakin Skywalker: No, sir.
Master Yoda: See through you, we can.
Mace Windu: Be mindful of your feelings.
Ki-Adi-Mundi: Your thoughts dwell on your mother.
Anakin Skywalker: I miss her.
Master Yoda: Afraid to lose her, I think, hmm?
Anakin Skywalker: What has that got to do with anything?
Master Yoda: Everything! Fear is the path to the Dark Side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering. I sense much fear in you.

Tatooine is sparsely populated. If the trace was correct, I will find them quickly, master.
