    4. Padme kept some lesbian porno mags in that hangar and was worried they were about to be discovered. I mean, have you seen the way she RUNS?

    Because Portman Read the Script before acting out the role..............Face it true believers, the Acting in the Prequels is one of the primary reasons THEY SUCK along with the Writing, the story, the overblown CGI, the Cartoon aliens.......etc, etc, etc,

    This whole thread sucks. It's just a misplaced attempt to level another complaint at the PT movies.

    Why? Because this plot point wasn't a blooper. This complaint is. Padme didn't automatically know where the hangar was. She suspected Dooku was heading for a hangar, because she had brains and KNEW he couldn't leave the planet on the damn hover scooter he was traveling on when she, Anakin and Obi-Wan first spotted him from the gunship. After falling from the gunship, she looked up and noted the direction in which Anakin and Obi-Wan were following Dooku and ordered clone troopers to accompany her and follow them. Yoda got to the hangar BEFORE SHE DID. In fact, she didn't reach the hangar until after Yoda's duel with Dooku.

    She saw it before she fell out.

    For all those saying "She saw it from afar" I don't really know when was the last time you watched that scene. They fly for like a minute more at top speeds, through a winding canyon and the "hangar" is no more than an average sized landing strip sticking out of a cliff wall. It's not much bigger than a Republic gunship. Not really noticeable from far away.
    And in fact, why would he even have to go to a hangar? He could easily hide his ship in a random cave, or between two big rocks or, hell, just put it out in the middle of the desert, throw some sand over it. Perfect camouflage :p

    I'm more amused by the way she jumps up and orders the trooper to "Gather what troops he can" and to hurry and he's all like "Uh...alright, we're in a middle of a desert so..." and just picks a random direction and starts running.

    I don't think it's that big a deal, personally. We see that the Separatists have a holographic map depicting all the Republic's troop movements. I think it's very likely, therefore, that the Republic would be equipped with something similar, particularly since they manage to block all Separatist communications. That they would have a map or readout on board the ship Padmé was on seems likely to me, purely for practical reasons. Additionally, they seem to be flying through the desert, with not too much around them, so Dooku's ultimate target would be pretty clear to Padmé even if she couldn't see the structure itself. The clonetroopers, I would imagine, have a system to keep in constant communication so once he came up to Padmé, having him contact others would make the most sense.

    Yoda did not pick up Padme. After her fall from the gunship, she gathered a group of clone troopers and they set out in the same direction as Dooku, Anakin and Obi-Wan. However, Yoda got to the hangar some time before she did.

    Before she lost her will to live because a boy called her a poopyhead, she was smart enough to deduce that Darth Tyranus had to get off the planet somehow.

    By the way, Padme did not quickly regain consciousness after her fall from the gunship.

    Not only that, but I think he ran in the opposite direction of where the gunship was coming from which was where the battle was. Clone dude #2119 got lost!

    I just finished watching AOTC. It took Padme quite a while to regain consciousness. In fact, she didn't regain consciousness, until after Obi-Wan and Dooku had began their duel inside the hangar. Even Yoda was on his way to the hangar before she regain consciousness. When Padme did regain consciousness, she groaned for a few seconds or more before she "jumped up". And she and the Clone troopers went toward the direction of the battle to get transport to allow them to follow Dooku, Obi-Wan and Anakin's direction.

    Must have been on a mysterious deleted scene, because I certainly didn't saw that anywhere...

    Actually, it isn't in a deleted scene. It's a version of episode 3 called, "Lost Hope"
    But it was the other way around. Padme, and Obi Wan called Anakin a poo poo head.
    It's right in this video, signed in purple crayon!

    I'll have to rewatch it, but I actually thought that the clone was running toward the hangar, not toward the battle.
