This scene set a terrific tone for the political workings of the film. A lot of people have something to say, but none if it really adds up, and things are not what they seem. This is a theme that runs throughout the film and is captured perfectly here. I do kinda wish one of Padme's lines hadn't been cut. In the screenplay, she thanks Yoda for his greeting, saying seeing her alive brings warm feelings to his heart. She says in the screenplay "Thank you Master Yoda." Instead, we cut to "Do you have any idea who's behind this attack?" She doesn't care that Yoda cares about her! How rude!
