Hayden Christensen: Anakin Skywalker
Supreme Chancellor : Remember back to your early teachings. "All who gain power are afraid to lose it." Even the Jedi.
Anakin Skywalker : The Jedi use their power for good.
Supreme Chancellor : 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.
Supreme Chancellor : And the Jedi don't?
Anakin Skywalker : The Jedi are selfless... they only care about others.
Supreme Chancellor : [looking a little frustrated] Did you ever hear the tragedy of Darth Plagueis "the wise"?
Anakin Skywalker : No.
Supreme Chancellor : 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 who lived many years ago. He was so powerful and so wise that he could use the Force to influence the midichlorians 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 do that? He could actually save people from death?
Supreme Chancellor : The dark side of the Force is a pathway to many abilities some consider to be unnatural.
Anakin Skywalker : What happened to him?
Supreme Chancellor : 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 one night, his apprentice killed him in his sleep. It's ironic that he could save others from death, but not himself.
Anakin Skywalker : Is it possible to learn this power?
Supreme Chancellor : Not from a Jedi.
Obi-Wan Kenobi : You have allowed this dark lord to twist your mind, until now, until now you've become the very thing you swore to destroy.
Anakin Skywalker : 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?
Anakin Skywalker : Don't make me kill you.
Obi-Wan Kenobi : Anakin, my allegiance is to the Republic, to democracy.
Anakin Skywalker : If you're not with me, then you're my enemy.
Obi-Wan Kenobi : [realizing that Anakin is consumed by evil and there's no reasoning with him anymore] Only a Sith deals in absolutes.
[draws his lightsaber]
Obi-Wan Kenobi : I will do what I must.
Anakin Skywalker : You will try.
[draws his lightsaber and confronts Obi-Wan]
Padmé : Anakin, I was so worried about you! Obi-Wan... told me terrible things!
Anakin Skywalker : What things?
Padmé : He said... you turned to the Dark Side. That you... killed Younglings!
Anakin Skywalker : Obi-Wan is trying to turn you against me.
Padmé : He cares about us.
Anakin Skywalker : Us?
Padmé : He knows. He wants to help you. Anakin, all I want is your love.
Anakin Skywalker : Love won't save you, Padme. Only my new powers can do that!
Padmé : But at what cost? You're a good person, don't do this!
Anakin Skywalker : I won't lose you the way I lost my mother. I am becoming more powerful than any Jedi has ever dreamed of, and I'm doing it for you. To protect you.
Padmé : Come away with me. Help me raise our child far away. Leave everything else behind while we still can!
Anakin Skywalker : No. Don't you see? We don't have to run away anymore! We no longer have to hide our love for each other. I am more powerful than the Chancellor, I... I can overthrow him! And together, you and I can rule the galaxy! We can make things the way we want them to be!
Padmé : I don't believe what I'm hearing! Obi-Wan was right... you've changed! You have turned to the dark side! You're not Anakin anymore!
Anakin Skywalker : [with a growing angry look and voice] I don't want to hear any more about Obi-Wan. The Jedi turned against me. Don't you turn against me!
Padmé : [crying] Anakin, you're breaking my heart! You're going down a path I cannot follow!
Anakin Skywalker : Because of Obi-Wan?
Padmé : Because of what you've done... what you plan to do! Stop! Stop now... come back... I love you!
[Anakin looks beside Padme and sees Obi-Wan standing at the ship's exit overhearing them]
Anakin Skywalker : [enraged and paranoid] Liar! You're with him! You brought him here to kill me!
Anakin Skywalker : [after killing Mace Windu and in disarray] What have I done?
Darth Sidious : You are fulfilling your destiny, Anakin. Become my apprentice. Learn to use the dark side of the Force. There's no turning back now.
Anakin Skywalker : I will do whatever you ask. Just help me save Padme's life. I can't live without her. If she dies, I don't know what I will do.
Darth Sidious : To cheat death is a power only one has achieved through centuries of the study of the Force. But if we work together, I know we can discover the secret to eternal life
Anakin Skywalker : I pledge myself to your teachings. To the ways of the Sith.
Darth Sidious : Good. Good! The Force is strong with you, Anakin Skywalker. A powerful Sith you will become. Henceforth, you shall be known as Darth... Vader.
Anakin Skywalker : Thank you... my Master.
Darth Sidious : Lord Vader... rise.
Yoda : Premonitions, premonitions. These visions you have...
Anakin Skywalker : They are of pain, suffering. Death.
Yoda : Yourself you speak of, or someone you know?
Anakin Skywalker : Someone.
Yoda : Close to you?
Anakin Skywalker : Yes.
Yoda : Careful you must be when sensing the future Anakin. The fear of loss is a path to the dark side.
Anakin Skywalker : I won't let these visions come true, Master Yoda.
Yoda : Death is a natural part of life. Rejoice for those around you who transform into the Force. Mourn them do not. Miss them do not. Attachment leads to jealousy. The shadow of greed that is.
Anakin Skywalker : What must I do, Master Yoda?
Yoda : Train yourself to let go... of everything you fear to lose.
Anakin Skywalker : Master Windu, I must speak with you.
Mace Windu : Not now, Skywalker. We have just received word that Obi-Wan has destroyed General Grievous. We're on our way to make sure the Chancellor returns emergency powers back to the Senate.
Anakin Skywalker : He won't give up his power. I just learned the terrible truth. I think Chancellor Palpatine is a Sith Lord.
Mace Windu : [suprised] 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.
[R2-D2 tries repeatedly to control an elevator that Anakin and Obi-Wan are in while avoiding battle droids at the same time]
Anakin Skywalker : What was that all about?
Obi-Wan : Well, R2 has been...
Anakin Skywalker : No loose wire jokes.
Obi-Wan : Did I say anything?
Anakin Skywalker : He's trying.
Obi-Wan : I didn't say anything.
Obi-Wan : I have failed you, Anakin. I have failed you.
Anakin Skywalker : I should have known the Jedi were plotting to take over!
Obi-Wan : Anakin, Chancellor Palpatine is evil!
Anakin Skywalker : From my point of view, the Jedi are evil!
Obi-Wan : Well, then you are lost!
Anakin Skywalker : [raises his lightsaber] This is the end for you, my master.
Anakin Skywalker : Love won't save you, Padme. Only my new powers can do that.
Supreme Chancellor : I know what's been troubling you. Listen to me. Don't continue to a be a pawn of the Jedi Council! Ever since I've known you, you have been seeking a life of great significance, far more than any Jedi.
[turns his back on Anakin]
Supreme Chancellor : Are you going to kill me?
Anakin Skywalker : I would certainly like to!
Supreme Chancellor : I know you would. I can feel your anger. It give you focus... makes you stronger.
Anakin Skywalker : [during the Opening Space Battle] This is where the fun begins.
Mace Windu : [has Palpatine subdued] I'm going to put an end to this, once and for all!
Anakin Skywalker : You can't. He must stand trial.
Mace Windu : He has control of the senate and all the courts. He is too dangerous to be left alive!
Supreme Chancellor : [exhausted and disfigured] But, I'm too weak. Don't kill me.
Anakin Skywalker : That's not the Jedi way. He must live.
[Windu ignores Anakin, still intending to kill Palpatine]
Anakin Skywalker : I need him!
[Windu raises his lightsaber]
Anakin Skywalker : NO!
Supreme Chancellor : [Anakin draws his own lightsaber, cutting off Windu's arm, then Palpatine electricutes Windu] Power, unlimited power!
Supreme Chancellor : Be careful of the Jedi, Anakin. Only through me can you achieve a power greater than any Jedi. Learn to use the Dark Side of the Force and you will be able to save your wife from certain death.
Anakin Skywalker : What did you say? How do you know that...?
Supreme Chancellor : Use my knowledge, I beg you.
Anakin Skywalker : [igniting his lightsaber] You're the Sith Lord!
[Anakin has been appointed onto the council, but denied mastership]
Anakin Skywalker : I swear to you... I didn't ask to be put on the council.
Obi-Wan Kenobi : But it's what you wanted. Your friendship with Chancellor Palpatine seems to have paid off. Anakin, I am on your side. I did not want to put you in this situation
Anakin Skywalker : What situation?
Obi-Wan Kenobi : The Council wants you to report on all the Chancellor's dealings.
Anakin Skywalker : They want me to spy on the Chancellor? But that is treason!
Obi-Wan Kenobi : We are at war, Anakin.
Supreme Chancellor : [Anakin cuts off Dooku's hands ending the battle. Anakin catches Dooku's lightsabre and ignites it and puts both lightsabres to his neck] Good, Anakin, good. Kill him.
[Dooku looks at Palpatine in shock]
Supreme Chancellor : Kill him now.
Anakin Skywalker : I shouldn't...
Supreme Chancellor : Do it!
Anakin Skywalker : [Anakin decapitates Dooku]
Supreme Chancellor : You did well, Anakin. He was too dangerous to be kept alive.
Anakin Skywalker : Yes, but he was an unarmed prisoner.
[frees Chancellor Palpatine]
Anakin Skywalker : I shouldn't have done that. It's not the Jedi way.
Supreme Chancellor : [stands up, rubbing his wrists] 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.
[sound of sand people screaming in as if Anakin can still hear their death]
Supreme Chancellor : Now, we must leave before more security droids arrive.
Supreme Chancellor : I hope you trust me, Anakin.
Anakin Skywalker : Of course.
Supreme Chancellor : I need your help, son. I want you to be the eyes, ears, and voice of the Republic. Anakin, I'm appointing you to be my personal representative on the Jedi Council.
Anakin Skywalker : Me? A Master? I'm overwhelmed, sir. But the Council elects its own members. They will never accept this.
Supreme Chancellor : I think they will. They need you, more than you know.
Anakin Skywalker : I'm going there to end this war. Wait for me until I return. Thing's will be different, I promise. Please wait for me.
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 the 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.
Mace Windu : Take a seat, young Skywalker.
Anakin Skywalker : Forgive me master.
Anakin Skywalker : I missed you, Padmé.
Anakin Skywalker : Ray shields.
Obi-Wan : Wait a minute. How did this happen? We're smarter than this.
Anakin Skywalker : Apparently not. I say patience.
Obi-Wan : Patience?
Anakin Skywalker : Yes. R2 will be along in a few moments and then... he'll release us from the ray shields.
[R2 comes skidding across the hallway and bashes into the opposite wall]
Anakin Skywalker : See? No problem.
Anakin Skywalker : [referring to Obi-Wan] You brought him here to kill me!
[Obi-Wan Kenobi and Yoda are escaping the Jedi temple as Obi-Wan noticed the hologram center]
Obi-Wan : Wait, Master. There is something I must know.
Yoda : If into the security recordings you go, only pain will you find.
Obi-Wan : I must know the truth, Master.
[Obi-Wan watches the recordings of Jedi, even younglings, being slaughtered]
Obi-Wan : It can't be... It can't be...
Anakin Skywalker : The traitors have been taken care of, Lord Sidious.
Darth Sidious : Good... Good... you have done well, my apprentice. Now Lord Vader, go and bring peace to the Empire.
Obi-Wan : [switches off the hologram] I can't watch any more.
Yoda : Destroy the Sith we must.
Anakin Skywalker : I'm going to turn you over to the Jedi.
Supreme Chancellor : Of course you should. But you can't be sure of their intentions.
Anakin Skywalker : I will learn the truth of all this quickly.
Supreme Chancellor : You have much wisdom, Anakin. But if I were to die, all the knowledge you seek about the true nature of the Force will be lost with me. Learn the power of the Dark Side, Anakin. The power to save Padmé.
Anakin Skywalker : We got 'em, R2.
Obi-Wan Kenobi : [as he and Anakin walk into a room and find Chancellor Palpatine in a chair] Chancellor.
Anakin Skywalker : You all right?
Supreme Chancellor : Count Dooku.
[Anakin and Obi-Wan turn around to and see Count Dooku with two Super Battle Droids]
Obi-Wan Kenobi : This time we'll do it together.
Anakin Skywalker : I was about to say that.
Supreme Chancellor : You can't be any match for him, he's a Sith Lord.
Obi-Wan Kenobi : Chancellor Palpatine, Sith Lords are our specialty.
[he and Anakin take off robes]
Count Dooku : Your swords, please. You 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.
[he, Anakin, and Dooku ignite lightsabers and fight]
Count Dooku : I've been looking forward to this.
Anakin Skywalker : My powers are double since the last time we met, Count.
Count Dooku : Good. Twice the pride, double the fall.
Supreme Chancellor : [as Obi-Wan falls and gets back up, running toward Dooku] Get him!
[Dooku chokes Obi-Wan and throws him down the stairs]
