Chancellor Palpatine: I don't know how much longer I can hold off the vote, my friends. More and more star systems are joining the Separatists.
Mace Windu: If they do break away.
Chancellor Palpatine: I will not let this Republic that has stood for a thousand years be split in two. My negotiations will not fail.
Mace Windu: If they do, you must realize that there aren't enough Jedi to protect the Republic. We're keepers of the peace, not soldiers.
Chancellor Palpatine: Master Yoda, do you really think it will come to war?
Yoda: Hmmm. The Dark Side clouds everything; impossible to see the future is.
[hologram shows Rodian]
Rodian: [in Rodian language] The Loyalist Committee has arrived, Your Honor.
Chancellor Palpatine: Good.
Rodian: [says something else]
Chancellor Palpatine: Send them in. [as Committee enters] We will discuss this matter later.
Yoda: Senator Amidala! Your tragedy on the landing platform, terrible. Seeing you alive brings warm feeling to my heart.
Padmè Amidala: Do you have any idea who's behind this attack?
Mace Windu: Our intelligence point to disgruntled spice miners on the moons of Naboo
Padmè Amidala: I think that Count Dooku is behind it.
Ki-Ali-Mundi: He is a political idealist, not a murderer.
Mace Windu: You know, milady, Count Dooku was once a Jedi. He couldn't assassinate anyone; it's not in his character.
Yoda: But for certain, Senator, in grave danger you are.
Chancellor Palpatine: Master Jedi, may I suggest that the Senator be placed under the protection of your graces?
Bail Organa: You really think that is a wise decision during these stressful times.
Padmè Amidala: Chancellor, if I may comment, I do not believe-
Chancellor Palpatine: The situation is that serious? Oh, but I do, Senator. I realize all too well that additional security might be disruptive for you, but... perhaps someone you're familiar with. An old friend, like... Master Kenobi.
Mace Windu: That's possible. He's just returned from a border dispute on Ansion.
Chancellor Palpatine: Do it for me, milady, please. The thought of losing you... is unbearable.
Mace Windu: I will have Obi-Wan report to you immediately.
Padmè Amidala: Thank you, Master Windu.
