Yoda: Master Qui-Gon. More to say have you?
Qui-Gon Jinn: With your permission, my master, I have encountered a vergence in the Force.
Yoda: A vergence, you say?
Mace Windu: Located around a person?
Qui-Gon Jinn: A boy. His cells have the highest concentration of midi-chlorians I have seen in a life-form. It was possible he was concieved by the midi-chlorians.
Mace Windu: You refer to the prophecy of The One who will bring balance to the Force. You believe it's this boy?
Yoda: How feel you?
Anakin: Cold, sir.
Yoda: Afraid are you?
Anakin: No, sir.
Yoda: See through you we can.
Mace Windu: Be mindful of your feelings.
Ki-Adi-Mundi: Your thoughts dwell on your mother.
Anakin: I miss her.
Yoda: Afraid to lose her I think, hmm?
Anakin: What has that got to do with anything?
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.
Anakin: You're a Jedi Knight, aren't you?
Qui-Gon Jinn: What makes you think that?
Anakin: I saw your laser sword. Only Jedi carry that kind of weapon.
Qui-Gon Jinn: Perhaps I killed a Jedi and took it from him.
Anakin: I don't think so. No one can kill a Jedi.
Qui-Gon Jinn: I wish that were so.
Obi-Wan: But Master Yoda says I should be mindful of the future.
Qui-Gon Jinn: But not at the expense of the moment.
C-3PO: I beg your pardon, but what do you mean, "naked?"
C-3PO: My parts are showing? Oh, my goodness, oh!
Yoda: Always two there are, no more, no less. A master and an apprentice.
Mace Windu: But which was destroyed, the master or the apprentice?
Qui-Gon Jinn: You must have Jedi reflexes if you race pods.
[Jar-Jar tries to grab a piece of fruit with his tongue, but Qui-Gon catches it]
Qui-Gon Jinn: Don't do that again.
Anakin: Mom, you said that the biggest problem in the universe is no one helps each other.
Qui-Gon Jinn: Remember, concentrate on the moment. Feel, don't think. Trust your instincts.
Qui-Gon Jinn: Remember: Your focus determines your reality.
Shmi Skywalker: You can't stop change any more than you can stop the suns from setting.
Jar-Jar Binks: Ooh mooey mooey I love you!
Qui-Gon Jinn: You almost got us killed! Are you brainless?
Jar-Jar Binks: I spake!
Qui-Gon Jinn: The ability to speak does not make you intelligent. Now get out of here.
Anakin: Are you an angel?
Queen Amidala: What?
Anakin: An angel. I've heard the deep space pilots talk about them. They live on the moons of Iego, I think. They're the most beautiful creatures in the universe.
Queen Amidala: You're a funny little boy. How do you know so much?
Anakin: I listen to all the traders and star pilots who come through here. I'm a pilot, you know, and someday I'm going to fly away from this place.
[Anakin is about to leave his mother behind to train as a Jedi]
Anakin: I can't do it, Mom. I just can't do it.
Shmi Skywalker: Ani...
Anakin: Will I ever see you again?
Shmi Skywalker: What does your heart tell you?
Anakin: I hope so. Yes... I guess.
Shmi Skywalker: Then we will see each other again.
Anakin: I will come back and free you, Mom. I promise.
Shmi Skywalker: Now, be brave, and don't look back. Don't look back.
Obi-Wan: The boy is dangerous. They all sense it, why can't you?
Qui-Gon Jinn: I can only protect you, I cannot fight a war for you.
Obi-Wan: Why do I get the feeling that we've picked up another pathetic life form?
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: I don't have anything else...
Qui-Gon Jinn: But credits will do fine.
Watto: No, they won't-a.
[Qui-Gon waves his hand more firmly]
Qui-Gon Jinn: Credits will do fine.
Watto: No, they won't-a! 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!
Shmi Skywalker: All slaves have a transmitter placed somewhere in their body.
Anakin: I've been working on a scanner to try and locate mine.
Shmi Skywalker: Any attempt to escape...
Anakin: And they blow you up! BOOM!
Jar Jar Binks: How wude!
Darth Sideous: And Queen Amidala, has she signed the treaty?
Nute Gunray: She has... disappeared, my lord. One Naboo cruiser got past the blockade.
Darth Sideous: I want that treaty signed!
Nute Gunray: M-my lord, it-it's impossible to locate the ship. It's out of our range.
Darth Sideous: Not for a Sith.
[Darth Maul appears alongside Darth Sideous in the hologram]
Darth Sideous: This is my apprentice, Darth Maul. He will find your lost ship.
[the hologram disappears]
Nute Gunray: This is getting out of hand! Now, there are *two* of them!
Qui-Gon Jinn: [mumbles, as Obi-Wan sits him up after battle with Darth Maul] Uhh, it's too late, it...
Qui-Gon Jinn: Obi-Wan, promise... Promise me you will train the boy.
Obi-Wan: Yes, master.
Qui-Gon Jinn: [wiping a tear from Obi-Wan's right cheek] He is the chosen one. He will bring balance. Train him.
[nods, cries over Qui-Gon Jinn's body]
Anakin: But what about mom? Is she free too? You're coming too, aren't you mom?
Qui-Gon Jinn: I tried to free your mother Anni, but Watto wouldn't have it.
Shmi Skywalker: Son, my place is here, my future is here. It is time for you to let go.
C-3PO: Hello, I am C-3PO, human cyborg relations. How might I serve you?
Padmé: Are you sure about this? Trusting our fate to a boy we hardly know? The Queen will not approve.
Qui-Gon Jinn: The Queen does not need to know.
Padmé: Well, I don't approve.
Qui-Gon Jinn: Finding him was the will of the force, I have no doubt of that.
Shmi Skywalker: There was no father. I carried him, I gave birth, I raised him. I can't explain what happened.
Senator Palpatine: There is no civility, only politics.
Darth Maul: Tatooine is sparsely populated. If the homing trace is correct, I will find them quickly, Master.
Darth Sideous: Move against the Jedi first. You will then have no difficulty in taking the Queen back to Naboo to sign the treaty.
Darth Maul: At last we will reveal ourselves to the Jedi. At last we will have revenge.
Darth Sideous: You have been well trained my young apprentice. They will be no match for you.
Queen Amidala: I was not elected to watch my people suffer and die while you discuss this invasion in a committee!
Qui-Gon Jinn: Keep your concentration here and now, where it belongs.
Qui-Gon Jinn: Captain.
Radiant VII captain: Yes, sir?
Qui-Gon Jinn: Tell them we wish to board at once.
Radiant VII captain: [to communication device] With all due respect, the ambassadors for the Supreme Chancellor wish to board immediately.
Nute Gunray: [on view screen] Yes, of course. As you know, our blockade is perfectly legal and we'd be happy to receive the ambassadors.
Qui-Gon Jinn: I'm not allowed to train you, so I want you watch me and be mindful. Always remember, your focus determines your reality.
Jar Jar Binks: Wesa got a grand army. That's why you no liking us meesa thinks.
Qui-Gon Jinn: [describing his encounter with Darth Maul] He had all the lightsaber fighting capabilities and the moves of the Jedi, only faster and more agressive. My only conclusion... is that it was a Sith lord.
Ki-Adi-Mundi: Impossible! The Sith are extinct! They have been for nearly a millenium.
Mace Windu: I agree. The Sith would not have returned without us sensing it.
Yoda: Hard to see, the dark side is. We must investigate further before drawing a conclusion to the idenity of your adversary.
Jar Jar Binks: Monsters out there, leaking in here. Weesa all sinking and no power. Whena yousa thinking we are in trouble?
Jar Jar Binks: Better dead here than deader in the Core. Ye gods, whatta meesa sayin'?
Captain Tarpals: Hey, you-sa! Stop-pa dere!
Jar-Jar Binks: Hey yo, Daddy, Captain Tarpals. Mesa back.
Captain Tarpals: No-ah 'gain, Jar Jar. You-sa goin' to da Bosses. You-sa in big doo-doo dis time!
[Jar Jar gets shocked by a Gungan spear]
Jar-Jar Binks: Yipe! How wude!
Jar-Jar Binks: Dis is nutsen
[looks out window]
Jar-Jar Binks: Oh Gooberfish
Obi-Wan: Why were you banished Jar-Jar?
Jar-Jar Binks: It's a longo taleo buta small part of it would be mesa... clumsy
Obi-Wan: You were banished because you were clumsy?
Jar-Jar Binks: Yousa might'n be sayin dat
[first title cards]
Title card/crawl:: A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away...
Title card/crawl:: Turmoil has engulfed the Galactic Republic. The taxation of trade routes to outlying star systems is in dispute. Hoping to resolve the matter with a blockade of deadly battleships, the greedy Trade Federation has stopped all shipping to the small planet of Naboo. While the Congress of the Republic endlessly debates this alarming chain of events, the Supreme Chancellor has secretly dispatched two Jedi Knights, the guardians of peace and justice in the galaxy, to settle the conflict...
Governor Sio Bibble: A communications disruption could mean only one thing: invasion.
Qui-Gon Jinn: I need to speak to the Jedi Council. The situation has become much more complicated.
Chancellor Palpatine: And you, young Skywalker; we shall watch your career with great interest.
Anakin: I've built a racer. It's the fastest ever! There's a big race tomorrow on Boonta Eve. You could enter my pod. It's all but finished...
Shmi Skywalker: Anakin, Watto won't let you...
Anakin: Watto, doesn't know I've built it. You could make him think it was yours and you could get him to let me pilot it for you.
Shmi Skywalker: I don't want you to race Anni, it's awful. I die every time Watto makes you do it.
Anakin: But mom, I love it. The prize money would more than pay for the parts they need.
Queen Amidala: Senator, this is your arena. I feel I must return my mine. I have decided to go back to Naboo.
Senator Palpatine: Go back? But your Majesty, be realistic. They'll force you to sign the treaty.
Queen Amidala: I will sign no treaty, Senator. My fate will be no different to that of our people.
Queen Amidala: Although we do not always agree, Your Honor, our two great societies have always lived in peace. The Trade Federation has destroyed all that we have worked so hard to build. If we do not act quickly, all will be lost forever. I ask you to help us... no, I beg you to help us.
[Amidala drops to her knees in front of the Gungan assembly]
Queen Amidala: We are your humble servants.
[One by one, everyone in Amidala's party gets on one knee in front of the Gungan assembly]
Queen Amidala: Our fate is in your hands.
Boss Nass: Hmmmmm.
[rubs his chin in thought]
Yoda: Qui-Gon's defiance I sense in you. Need that, you do not!
Qui-Gon Jinn: Let's get out of here before more droids show up
Jar-Jar Binks: More? More did you spake?
Jar-Jar Binks: Mesa cause one, two-y little bitty axadentes, huh? Yud say boom de gasser, den crashin der bosses heyblibber, den banished.
[Fode and Beed, the two-headed announcer, is calling the podrace]
Fode: [in Huttese, subtitled] We have perfect weather today for the Boonta Classic. The most hazardous of all Podraces.
Beed: [in English] That's absolutely right. And a big turnout here, from all corners of the Outer Rim territories. I see the contestants are making their way out onto the starting grid.
Fode: Yes, there they are!
Beed: I see Ben Quadinaros from the Tund system.
Fode: And Gasgano in the new Ord Pedrovia.
Beed: Two time winner, Boles Roor...
Fode: On the front line, the reigning champion, Sebulba from Pixelito. By far the favorite today.
Beed: And a late entry, Anakin Skywalker, a local boy.
Fode: I hope he has better luck this time.
Beed: I see the flaggers are moving onto the track.
Jar Jar Binks: [Sees R2-D2 and other R2 units for the first time] Hello boyos.
Anakin: What are midi-chlorians?
Qui-Gon Jinn: Midi-chlorians are a microscopic life form that resides within all living cells.
Queen Amidala: How did you end up here with us?
Jar Jar Binks: I don't know. Mesa day startin pretty okee-day with a brisky morning munchy, then BOOM! Gettin very scared and grabbin that Jedi and POW! Mesa here! Mesa gettin' very very scared!
[laser fire surrounds Naboo Starfighter. R2D2 beeps]
Anakin: I know we're in trouble, just hang on!
[regarding returning to Otoh Gunga]
Jar Jar Binks: My forgotten, da Bosses will do terrible tings to me TERRRRRIBLE is me going back der!
Qui-Gon Jinn: Do you hear that?
[a rumbling is heard in the distance]
Jar Jar Binks: Yeah.
Qui-Gon Jinn: That is the sound of a thousand terrible things headed this way.
Obi-Wan: If they find us, they will crush us, grind us into TINY pieces and BLAST us into oblivion!
Jar Jar Binks: Hmmm... yousa point is well seen.
Queen Amidala: I will not condone a course of action that will lead us to war.
Qui-Gon Jinn: I have... acquired a pod in a game of chance. The fastest ever built.
Watto: I hope you didn't kill anyone I know for it.
Watto: I want to see your spaceship the moment the race is over.
Qui-Gon Jinn: Patience, my blue friend.
Obi-Wan: The council has granted me permission to train you. You will be a Jedi, I promise.
Obi-Wan: You were right about one thing, master. The negotiations were short.
Sebulba: You won't walk away from this one, you slave scum!
Anakin: Don't count on it, slimeball!
Sebulba: You're Bantha fodder!
Anakin: Qui-Gon told me to stay in this cockpit, and that's what I'm going to do!
[after a meeting with Darth Sidious]
Rune Haako: You didn't tell him about the missing Jedi.
Nute Gunray: No need to report that to him until we have something to report!
Shmi Skywalker: Can you help him?
Qui-Gon Jinn: I don't know. I didn't actually come here to free slaves.
C-3PO: [wobbling significantly as he starts walking] I am not sure this floor is entirely stable.
Jar-Jar Binks: [to the Queen] Yousa thinking yousa people ganna die?
Jar-Jar Binks: Mesa called Jar-Jar Binks. Mesa your humble servant.
Queen Amidala: [speaking to Chancellor Palpatine] It is clear to me now that the Republic no longer functions. I pray you will bring sanity and compassion back to the Senate.
Boss Nass: Yousa no tinken yousa greater den da Gungans? Mesa like dis. Maybe wesa... bein' friends.
Jar Jar Binks: Where wesa goin?
Qui-Gon Jinn: Don't worry. The Force will guide us.
Jar Jar Binks: Ohh, maxi big da Force. Well dat smells stinkowiff.
Boss Nass: Mesa no carrrrrrin' about the Naboo. The Naboo think they are so smarty. They think their brains so big.
Qui-Gon Jinn: You and the Naboo form a symbiont circle, what happens to one of you affects the other, you must understand this.
Anakin: Mom, you've always said the biggest problem in this Universe is that nobody helps each other.
Anakin: I don't know if I'll ever see her again, I wanted to say goodbye.
Queen Amidala: We will tell her for you. We are sure her heart goes with you.
Shmi Skywalker: [podrace] Well done, Anakin. You have given hope to all these people.
Qui-Gon Jinn: There is something else behind all this, Your Highness. There's no logic in the Federation's move here. My feelings tell me they will destroy you.
Qui-Gon Jinn: He owes me what you call a Life Debt.
Boss Nass: Binks? Yousa been havin' the life play with thissen hissen?
Jar-Jar Binks: Uh-huh.
Boss Nass: Blurublurublu! Be gone with him!
Jar-Jar Binks: Count me outa this one. Better dead here than dead at the core. Ye Gods! What is mesa sayin'?
[after a pod racer crashes and explodes into a billion pieces]
Beed: I don't care what universe you're from, that's got to hurt.
Daultay Dofine: This scheme of yours has failed, Lord Sidious. The blockades is finished. We dare not go against the Jedi.
Darth Sidious: Viceroy, I don't want this stunted slime in my sight again!
Obi-Wan: I have a bad feeling about this.
Qui-Gon Jinn: I don't sense anything.
Obi-Wan: It's not about the mission, Master. It's something... elsewhere. Elusive.
Darth Sidious: This turn of events is unfortunate. We must accelerate our plans. Begin landing your troops.
Nute Gunray: 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!
C-3PO: I can assure you they will never get me onto one of those dreadful starships.
Qui-Gon Jinn: These Federation types are cowards. The negotiations will be short.
Captain Panaka: Your highness, this is a battle I do not think we can win.
Queen Amidala: Our people are dying, Senator. We must do something quickly to stop the Federation.
Senator Palpatine: To be realistic, your Majesty. I think we are going to have to accept Federation control for the time being.
Queen Amidala: That is something I cannot do.
Obi-Wan: Once those droids take control of the surface, they will take control of you.
Watto: [to Anakin] Better stop your friend's betting or I'll end up owning him, too.
Qui-Gon Jinn: He can see things before they happen. That's why he appears to have such quick reflexes. It's a Jedi trait.
Governor Sio Bibble: The death toll is catastrophic. We must bow to their wishes. You must contact me.
Qui-Gon Jinn: Your Highness, under the circumstances, I suggest you come to Coruscant with us.
Queen Amidala: Thank you, Ambassador. But my place is with my people.
Qui-Gon Jinn: They will kill you if you stay.
Chancellor Valorum: Will you defer your motion to allow a commission to explore the validity of your accusations?
Senator Palpatine: Fellow Senators, Honored delegates. A tragedy has engulfed our system which started right here with the taxation of Trade Routes.
Jar-Jar Binks: Oh, maxi big the Force! Well, that smells stinkerwhiff.
Rune Haako: Are you brain dead? I'm not going in there with two Jedi! Send a droid.
Co-pilot: [to Nute Gunray] With all due respect...
Jar-Jar Binks: No again! No again! The beings hereabouts are kwazy! We shall be robbed and crunched!
Qui-Gon Jinn: Not likely, we have nothing of value. That's our problem.
