No, that is not exactly what he says. Let me quote him for you: - I took it upon myself to train him. I thought I could instruct him just as well as Yoda. I was wrong... (The first sentence may not be entirely correct.) He does say that he took the training upon himself and he does say that he thought he could instruct him just as well as Yoda, but he does NOT say that he took it upon himself BECAUSE of the latter! That is just something you assumed from hearing this. EDIT: It doesnÂ´t matter if most of their relationship occurs offscreen, we can still see that there is friendship.
