Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace (1999) Poster

Pernilla August: Shmi Skywalker



  • Shmi Skywalker : You can't stop change any more than you can stop the suns from setting.

  • [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.

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • Shmi Skywalker : There was no father. I carried him, I gave birth, I raised him. I can't explain what happened.

  • Shmi Skywalker : [podrace]  Well done, Anakin. You have given hope to all these people.

  • 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.

  • Shmi Skywalker : Can you help him?

    Qui-Gon Jinn : I don't know. I didn't actually come here to free slaves.
