"Star Wars: The Clone Wars: The Zillo Beast Strikes Back (#2.19)" (2010)
Dr. Sionver Boll: It's scales are remarkably strong and light. If we could examine their composition, we might be able to synthesize them to reinforce our clone armor.
Chancellor Palpatine: And what is stopping you?
Dr. Sionver Boll: We need to remove the scales first. It's very difficult, not to mention painful.
Chancellor Palpatine: Would it not be more efficient to simply kill the beast?
Mas Amedda: Kill it? Are you sure?
Dr. Sionver Boll: Chancellor, I must protest. Besides being the last of its kind, this creature may be intelligent.
Chancellor Palpatine: I find that hard to believe. It is, after all, just an animal.
[Zillo beast growls]
Dr. Sionver Boll: It didn't seem to like your comment.
Chancellor Palpatine: I applaud your high moral stance, Doctor. After all, principle is in short supply these days. However, every passing minute of warfare brings countless deaths, deaths that could be prevented once the beast's secrets are unlocked. If there is anyway to hasten that process, it is our moral duty to explore it.
Dr. Sionver Boll: I serve at your pleasure, Chancellor. I'm just not sure where to begin. The fact remains that the beast is indestructible.
Chancellor Palpatine: Nothing is truly indescribable, Doctor. Wasn't there something in Malastare fuel that affected the beast?
Dr. Sionver Boll: It weakened the Zillo, yes, but...
Chancellor Palpatine: Excellent. I suggest you start there. Doctor, you need to find a way to kill that beast, or we shall replace you with someone who can.

Chancellor Palpatine: I should have known secrets do not stay secret for long around here.
Padmé Amidala: Isn't that precisely the point of a democracy?
Anakin Skywalker: Of course, in wartime, some things must be kept secret, even from the people, so as not to aid the enemy.
Mas Amedda: It is unfortunate that the beast must die, Senator. But the greater good demands it.
Padmé Amidala: How is killing the last of a species, in secret and without debate, good for anyone?

Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith (2005)
[Shock troopers are searching for the body of Yoda]
Clone Commander Thire: There is no sign of his body, sir.
Mas Amedda: Then he is not dead?
The Emperor: Double your search!
Clone Commander Thire: Yes, sir! Right away, sir!
[the troopers exit]
The Emperor: [to Mass Amedda] Tell Captain Kagi to prepare my shuttle for immediate takeoff.
Mas Amedda: Yes, Master.
The Emperor: I sense Lord Vader is in danger.

Captain Colton: We are receiving a message from the Chancellor's office, sir.
Senator Bail Organa: Send it through.
Captain Colton: Yes, sir.
[the pilot pushes some buttons and Mas Amedda appears on screen]
Mas Amedda: Senator Organa... the Supreme Chancellor requests your presence at a special session of Congress.
Senator Bail Organa: I will be there.
Mas Amedda: He will be expecting you.
[Mas Amedda's image disappears and Bail turns to Yoda and Obi-Wan]
Senator Bail Organa: It could be a trap... It could be a trap.

Chancellor Palpatine: Prepare my ship.


Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones (2002)
Mas Amedda: This is a crisis. The Senate must vote to give the chancellor emergency powers. He can then approve the creation of an army without a vote.
Palpatine: But what senator would have the courage to propose such a radical amendment?
Mas Amedda: If only Senator Amidala where here.


"Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Pursuit of Peace (#3.11)" (2010)
Chancellor Palpatine: Isn't it remarkable that one can have all the power in the galaxy and yet the words of a single senator can sway the thoughts of millions?
Mas Amedda: What do you plan to do about this?
Chancellor Palpatine: For now, we must adhere to the principles of our democracy. We must let the wheels of the Senate turn.


"Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Duchess of Mandalore (#2.14)" (2010)
Duchess Satine Kryze: If the Republic gets involved in our affairs, it will only lead to further violence. Thus I shall reassert our position of neutrality.
Mas Amedda: [scoffs] Talk of an idealist!
Duchess Satine Kryze: No, those are the words of a pacifist, and a people who have chosen non-violent action.
