Mace Windu quotes

I sense a great deal of confusion in you, young Skywalker. There is much fear that clouds your judgment.

I sense a plot to destroy the Jedi. The dark side of the Force surrounds the Chancellor.

The oppression of the Sith will never return. You have lost!

Our worst fear has been realized.

I am going to end this, once and for all!

In the name of the Galactic Senate of the Republic, you are under arrest, Chancellor.

[last words] He has control of the senate and the courts! He's too dangerous to be left alive!

Anakin Skywalker: Master, General Grievous' ship is dead ahead. The one crawling with vulture droids.
Obi-Wan Kenobi: Oh, I see it. This is going to be easy.

Anakin Skywalker: The General's command ship is dead ahead.
Obi-Wan Kenobi: Well, have you noticed the shields are still up?!
Anakin Skywalker: Sorry, Master.

Anakin Skywalker: I sense Count Dooku.
Obi-Wan Kenobi: I sense a trap.
Anakin Skywalker: Next move?
Obi-Wan Kenobi: [smiling] Spring the trap.

Anakin Skywalker: What was that all about?
Obi-Wan Kenobi: Well, R2 has been...
Anakin Skywalker: [interrupts] No loose wire jokes.
Obi-Wan Kenobi: Did I say anything?
Anakin Skywalker: He's trying.
Obi-Wan Kenobi: I didn't say anything!

Obi-Wan Kenobi: This time we will do it together.
Anakin Skywalker: I was about to say that.
Chancellor Palpatine: Get help. You're no match for him, he's a Sith Lord.
Obi-Wan Kenobi: [turns and smiles] Chancellor Palpatine, Sith Lords are our speciality.
Count Dooku: Your swords, please. We don't want to make a mess of things in front of the Chancellor.
Obi-Wan Kenobi: You won't get away this time, Dooku.
Count Dooku: I've been looking forward to this.
Anakin Skywalker: My powers have doubled since the last time we met, Count.
Count Dooku: Good. Twice the pride, double the fall.

[Anakin has Dooku on his knees. Having cut off Dooku's hands and caught his lightsaber, Anakin is about to finish the job] Chancellor Palpatine: [joyful] Good, Anakin, good. [suddenly turns sinister] Kill him. Kill him now. [Dooku looks shocked]
Anakin Skywalker: [hesitates] ...I shouldn't.
Chancellor Palpatine: [Angrily] Do it.
[Anakin decapitates Dooku]
Chancellor Palpatine: You did well, Anakin. He was too dangerous to be kept alive.
Anakin Skywalker: Yes, but he was an unarmed prisoner. I shouldn't have done that, it's not the Jedi way.
Chancellor Palpatine: It is only natural. He cut off your arm, and you wanted revenge. It wasn't the first time, Anakin. Remember what you told me about your mother and the Sand People?

Anakin Skywalker: Ray shields.
Obi-Wan Kenobi: Wait a minute, how did this happen? We're smarter than this!
Anakin Skywalker: Apparently not. I say patience.
Obi-Wan Kenobi: Patience?

General Grievous: Ah, yes... the negotiator, General Kenobi. We've been waiting for you.
Battle Droid: Excuse me. [Takes Anakin's and Obi Wan's lightsabers from them]
General Grievous: [Angrily snatches the lightsabers from the droid] That wasn't much of a rescue.
Battle Droid: [sarcastically] You're welcome.
General Grievous: And [coughs] Anakin Skywalker. I was expecting someone of your reputation to be a little... older.
Anakin Skywalker: General Grievous. You're shorter than I expected.
General Grievous: [coughs] Jedi scum.
Obi-Wan Kenobi: We have a job to do, Anakin. Try not to upset him.
General Grievous: Your lightsabers will make a fine addition to my collection.
Obi-Wan Kenobi: Not this time. And this time, you won't escape.

Obi-Wan Kenobi: Can you fly a cruiser like this?
Anakin Skywalker: You mean, do I know how to land what's left of this thing?
Obi-Wan Kenobi: Well?

[The back of Grievous's flagship breaks off. Artoo beeps]
Anakin Skywalker: We lost something.
Obi-wan Kenobi: Not to worry, we are still flying half a ship.

Darth Sidious: The end of the war is near.
General Grievous: But with the loss of Count Dooku--?
Darth Sidious: His death was a necessary loss. Soon I will have a new apprentice. One far younger, and more powerful.

Anakin Skywalker: Sometimes I wonder what's happening to the Jedi Order. I think this war is destroying the principles of the Republic.
Padm? Amidala: Have you ever considered that we may be on the wrong side?
Anakin Skywalker: What do you mean?
Padm? Amidala: What if the democracy we thought we were serving no longer exists, and the Republic has become the very evil we've been fighting to destroy?
Anakin Skywalker: I don't believe that, and you're sounding like a Separatist.
Padm? Amidala: What this war represents is a failure to listen. Now you're closer to the Chancellor than anyone, please, ask him to stop the fighting and let the diplomacy resume.
Anakin Skywalker: Don't ask me to do that.

Master Yoda: Allow this appointment lightly, the Council does not. Disturbing is this move by Chancellor Palpatine.
Anakin Skywalker: I understand.
Mace Windu: You are on this council, but we do not grant you the rank of Master.
Anakin Skywalker: ... What? How can you do this?! This is outrageous! It's unfair! How can you be on the council and not be a master?!
Mace Windu: Take a seat, young Skywalker.
Anakin Skywalker: Forgive me, Master.

Obi-Wan Kenobi: The Council wants you to report on all of the Chancellor's dealings. They want to know what he's up to.
Anakin Skywalker: They want me to spy on the Chancellor? That's treason.
Obi-Wan Kenobi: We are at war, Anakin.

Mace Windu: It's very dangerous putting them together. I don't think the boy can handle it. I don't trust him.
Obi-Wan Kenobi: With all due respect, Master, is he not the Chosen One? Is he not to destroy the Sith and bring balance to the Force?
Mace Windu: So the prophecy says.
Master Yoda: A prophecy that misread could have been.

Anakin Skywalker: You wanted to see me, Chancellor.
Chancellor Palpatine: Yes, Anakin. Come closer, I have good news. Our Clone Intelligence Units have discovered the location of General Grievous. He's hiding, in the Utapau system.
Anakin Skywalker: At last! We'll be able to capture that monster and end this war.
Chancellor Palpatine: I would worry about the collective wisdom of the Council if they didn't select you for this assignment. You are the best choice, by far. Sit down. Anakin, you know I'm not able to rely on the Jedi Council. If they haven't included you in their plot, they soon will.
Anakin Skywalker: I'm not sure I understand.
Chancellor Palpatine: You must sense what I have come to suspect. The Jedi Council want control of the Republic. They're planning to betray me.
Anakin Skywalker: I don't think--
Chacellor Palpatine: Anakin. Search your feelings. You know, don't you?
Anakin Skywalker: I know they don't trust you.
Chancellor Palpatine: Or the Senate. Or the Republic. Or democracy, for that matter.
Anakin Skywalker: I have to admit, my trust in them has been shaken.
Chacellor Palpatin: Why? They asked you to do something that made you feel dishonest, didn't they? They asked you to spy on me, didn't they?
Anakin Skywalker: I don't know what to say.
Chancellor Palpatine: Remember back to your early teachings, Anakin. All those who gain power are afraid to lose it. Even the Jedi.
Anakin Skywalker: The Jedi use their power for good.
Chancellor Palpatine: Good is a point of view, Anakin. The Sith and the Jedi are similar in almost every way. Including their quest for greater power.
Anakin Skywalker: The Sith rely on their passion for their strength. They think inward, only about themselves.
Chancellor Palpatine: And the Jedi don't?
Anakin Skywalker: The Jedi are selfless. They only care about others.
Chancellor Palpatine: Did you ever hear the tragedy of Darth Plagueis the Wise?
Anakin Skywalker: No.
Chancellor Palpatine: I thought not. It's not a story the Jedi would tell you. It's a Sith legend. Darth Plagueis was a Dark Lord of the Sith, so powerful and so wise. He could use the Force to influence the midi-chlorians to create... life. He had such a knowledge of the Dark Side that he could even keep the ones he cared about... from dying.
Anakin Skywalker: He could actually... save people from death?
Chancellor Palpatine: The Dark Side of the Force is a pathway to many abilities some consider to be unnatural.
Anakin Skywalker: What happened to him?
Chancellor Palpatine: He became so powerful, the only thing he was afraid of was... losing his power which, eventually of course, he did. Unfortunately, he taught his apprentice everything he knew. And then his apprentice killed him in his sleep. Ironic. He could save others from death... but not himself.
Anakin Skywalker: Is it possible to learn this power?
Chancellor Palpatine: Not from a Jedi.

General Grievous: It won't be long before the armies of the Republic track us here. I am sending you to the Mustafar system in the outer rim. It is a volcanic planet. You will be safe there.
Nute Gunray: Safe?! Chancellor Palpatine managed to escape your grip, General! Without Count Dooku, I have doubts about your ability to keep us safe!
General Grievous: Be thankful, Viceroy, you have not found yourself in my grip. Your ship is waiting.

Obi-Wan Kenobi: [jumps down from the upper levels] Hello there.
[All droids activate their weapons and surround Obi-Wan.]
General Grievous: General Kenobi. You are a bold one. [to the Magna Guards] Kill him!
[The Magna guards advance. Obi-wan pulls down a heating vent on top of them.]
General Grievous: [to the droids] Back away! I will deal with this Jedi slime myself.
Obi-Wan Kenobi: Your move.
General Grievous: You fool. I've been trained in your Jedi arts by Count Dooku.
[Grievous' two arms split into four. Each activates and wields a stolen lightsaber.]
General Grievous: Attack, Kenobi!

General Grievous: Armed or not, you must realize, you are doomed.
Obi-Wan Kenobi: Oh, I don't think so.

Anakin Skywalker: Master Windu, I must to talk to you.
Mace Windu: Skywalker. We just received word that Obi-Wan has destroyed General Grievous. We are on our way to make sure the chancellor returns emergency power back to the Senate.
Anakin Skywalker: He won't give up his power. I've just learned a terrible truth. I think Chancellor Palpatine is a Sith Lord.
Mace Windu: A Sith Lord?
Anakin Skywalker: Yes. The one we've been looking for.
Mace Windu: How do you know this?
Anakin Skywalker: He knows the ways of the Force. He's been trained to use the dark side.
Mace Windu: Are you sure?
Anakin Skywalker: Absolutely.
Mace Windu: Then our worst fears have been realized. We must move quickly if the Jedi Order is to survive.
Anakin Skywalker: Master, the Chancellor is very powerful. You'll need my help if you're going to arrest him.
Mace Windu: For your own good, stay out of this affair. I sense a great deal of confusion in you, young Skywalker. There is much fear that clouds your judgement.
Anakin Skywalker: I must go, master.
Mace Windu: No. If what you've told me is true, you will have gained my trust. But for now, remain here. Wait in the council chambers until we return.
Anakin Skywalker: Yes, master.

Mace Windu: In the name of the Galactic Senate of the Republic, you are under arrest, Chancellor.
Chancellor Palpatine: Are you threatening me, Master Jedi?
Mace Windu: The Senate will decide your fate.
Chancellor Palpatine: I am the Senate!
Mace Windu: Not yet.
Chancellor Palpatine: It's treason, then.

You are under arrest my lord!
Ani. I told you it would come to this. The JEDI ARE TAKING OVER!
THE OPPRESSION OF THE SITH WILL NEVER RETURN! YOU HAVE LOST!
NO! NO YOU WILL DIE!
HES A TRAITOR!
HE IS THE TRAITOR AH!
I HAVE THE POWER TO SAVE THE ONE YOU LOVE! YOU MUST CHOOSE ANAKIN!
DONT LISTEN TO HIM ANI!
I CANT HOLD OUT ANY LONGER!
I AM GOING TO END THIS ONCE AND FOR ALL!
YOU CANT! HE MUST STAND TRIAL!
HE HAS CONTROL OVER THE SENATE AND THE COURTS! HES TO DANGEROUS TO BE KEPT ALIVE!
THATS NOT THE JEDI WAY! HE MUST LIVE! I NEED HIM! NO!
POWER! UNLIMITED POWER!
What have I done? WHAT HAVE I DONE?!
You are fufiling your destiny ani. Become my Apprentice. LEARN TO USE THE DARK SIDE!
I WILL OBEY YOU MY MASTER! JUST help me save Padmes life. I cant live without her.
GOOD!
Anakin Skywalker: I pledge myself... to your teachings.
Darth Sidious: Good. Good. ...The Force is strong with you! A powerful Sith you will become. Henceforth, you shall be known as Darth... Vader.
Darth Vader: Thank you, my master.
Because the Council did not trust you, I believe you're the only Jedi with no knowledge of this plot. When the Jedi learn what has transpired here, they will kill us, along with all the Senators.
I AGREE! THEIR NEXT MOVE WILL BE AGAINST THE SENATE!
Every single Jedi, including your friend, Obi-Wan Kenobi, is now an enemy of the Republic.
We must move quickly. The Jedi are relentless. If they are not all destroyed, there will be civil war without end.
First, I want you to go to Jedi Temple. We will catch them off balance. Do what must be done Lord Vader. Do not hesitate. Show no mercy.
Their betrayal will be dealt with. After you have killed all the Jedi in the temple, go to the Mustafar system, wipe out Viceroy Gunray and the other separatist leaders. Once more, the Sith will rule the Galaxy. And... we shall have... peace.

And the Jedi Attempt to rebel had left me scared and deformed.
And the Jedi rebellion has been foiled.
The remaining Jedi will be hunted down and defeated!
In order to ensure the security and continuing stability, The Republic will be reorganized into the FIRST GALACTIC EMPIRE! FOR A SAFE AND MORE SECURED SOCIETY!

Not even the Younglings survived!
Killed not by clones this Padawan but by lightsaber he was.
Who could have done this?
If into the security holograms only pain you will find.
It cant be!
Now my apprentice go and bring peace to the Empire.
I cant bother to watch!
Master Yoda: Destroy the Sith, we must.
Obi-Wan Kenobi: Send me to kill the Emperor. I will not kill Anakin.
Yoda: To fight this Lord Sidious, strong enough you are not.
Obi-Wan Kenobi: He is like my brother. I cannot do it.
Master Yoda: Twisted by the Dark Side, young Skywalker has become. The boy you trained... gone he is. Consumed by Darth Vader.

Obi-Wan Kenobi: Padme, I need your help. He's in grave danger.
Padm? Amidala: From the Sith?
Obi-Wan Kenobi: From himself. Padm?, Anakin has turned to the dark side.
Padm? Amidala: You're wrong. How could you even say that?!
Obi-Wan Kenobi: I have seen a security hologram of him... killing younglings.
Padm? Amidala: Not Anakin. He couldn't...
Obi-Wan Kenobi: He was deceived by a lie. We all were. It appears that the Chancellor is behind everything, including the war. Palpatine is the Sith Lord we've been looking for. After the death of Count Dooku, Anakin became his new apprentice.
Padm? Amidala: I don't believe you. I can't...
Obi-Wan Kenobi: Padm?, I must find him.
Padm? Amidala: You're going to kill him, aren't you?
Obi-Wan Kenobi: He has become a very great threat. Anakin is the father, isn't he? I'm so sorry.

Darth Vader: I saw your ship. What are you doing out here?
Padm? Amidala: I was so worried about you. Obi-Wan told me terrible things.
Darth Vader: What things?
Padm? Amidala: He said you turned to the dark side. That you... killed younglings.
Darth Vader: Obi-Wan is trying to turn you against me.
Padm? Amidala: He cares about us.
Darth Vader: Us?
Padm? Amidala: He knows. He wants to help you. Anakin, all I want is your love.
Darth Vader: Love won't save you, Padm?. Only my new powers can do that.
Padm? Amidala: At what cost? You're a good person, don't do this!
Darth Vader: I won't lose you the way I lost my mother. I've become more powerful than any Jedi has ever dreamed of. And I'm doing it for you, to protect you.
Padm? Amidala: Come away with me. Help me raise our child. Leave everything else behind while we still can.
Darth Vader: Don't you see? We don't have to run away anymore. I have brought peace to the Republic. I am more powerful than the Chancellor, I can overthrow him. And together you and I can rule the galaxy. Make things the way we want them to be.
Padm? Amidala: [steps away] I can't believe what I'm hearing. Obi-Wan was right. You've changed.
Darth Vader: I don't want to hear any more about Obi-Wan. The Jedi turned against me, don't you turn against me.
Padm? Amidala: I don't know you anymore. Anakin, you're breaking my heart. You're going down a path I can't follow.
Darth Vader: Because of Obi-Wan?
Padm? Amidala: Because of what you've done! What you plan to do. Stop, stop now. Come back. I love you!
Darth Vader: [seeing Obi-Wan] LIAR!
Padm? Amidala: No!
Darth Vader: You're with him! You brought him here to kill me! [begins to choke Padme]
Padm? Amidala: No, Anakin--
Obi-Wan Kenobi: Let her go, Anakin!
Padm? Amidala: Anakin...
Obi-Wan Kenobi: LET HER GO!
[Anakin releases Padm?, who collapses]
Darth Vader: You turned her against me!
Obi-Wan Kenobi: You have done that yourself.
Darth Vader: You will not take her from me!
Obi-Wan Kenobi: Your anger and your lust for power have already done that. You have allowed this "Dark Lord" to twist your mind until now... until now you have become the very thing you swore to destroy.
Darth Vader: Don't lecture me, Obi-Wan. I see through the lies of the Jedi. I do not fear the Dark Side as you do! I have brought peace, freedom, justice and security to my new empire!
Obi-Wan Kenobi: Your new empire?
Darth Vader: Don't make me kill you...
Obi-Wan Kenobi: Anakin, my allegiance is with the Republic... to democracy!
Darth Vader: If you're not with me... then you're my enemy!
Obi-Wan Kenobi: Only a Sith deals in absolutes. I will do what I must.
Darth Vader: You will try.

Master Yoda: I hear a new apprentice you have, Emperor, or should I call you Darth Sidious?
Emperor Palpatine: Master Yoda... you survived.
Master Yoda: Surprised?
Emperor Palpatine: [grinning] Your arrogance blinds you, Master Yoda. Now you will witness the full power of the Dark Side!
[He strikes Yoda to the floor with Force Lightning]
Emperor Palpatine: I have waited a long time for this moment, my little green friend. At last, the Jedi are no more.
Yoda: Not if anything to say about it I have!
[Yoda Force-flings Palpatine across the room and across his desk]
Yoda: At an end, your rule is. And not short enough, it was!
[Palpatine leaps towards a door in panic, but Yoda leaps in and blocks his way]
Yoda: If so powerful you are... why leave? [ignites his lightsaber]
Emperor Palpatine: You will not stop me! Darth Vader will become more powerful than either of us! [ignites his lightsaber]
Yoda: Faith in your new apprentice, misplaced may be. As is your faith in the Dark Side of the Force.

Obi-Wan Kenobi: I have failed you, Anakin. I have failed you.
Darth Vader: I should have known the Jedi were plotting to take over!
Obi-Wan Kenobi: Anakin, Chancellor Palpatine is evil!
Darth Vader: From my point of view, the Jedi are evil!
Obi-Wan Kenobi: Well then, you are lost!

Obi-Wan Kenobi: It's over, Anakin! I have the high ground!
Darth Vader: You underestimate my power!
Obi-Wan Kenobi: Don't try it.

Obi-Wan Kenobi: You were the Chosen One! It was said that you would destroy the Sith, not join them! Bring balance to the Force, not leave it in darkness!
Darth Vader: I HATE YOU!
Obi-Wan Kenobi: You were my brother, Anakin. I loved you!

Emperor Palpatine: Lord Vader, can you hear me?
Darth Vader: Yes, Master. Where is Padme? Is she safe? Is she alright?
Emperor Palpatine: It seems, that in your anger, you killed her.
Darth Vader: I... I couldn't have. She was alive! I felt it!
[In his anguish, Vader damages several surrounding objects and droids through the Force. He then breaks the clamps that have been holding him down and takes a few steps forward. Palpatine watches, grinning cruelly.]
Darth Vader: NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!
