    Any one up for a bit of inter-trilogy line mirroring?

    I'll start us with an obvious one

    Hopefully we can draw some conclusions as to what these similar lines tell us about the Saga overall too...


    TPM

    OBI-WAN : I have a bad feeling about this.
    QUI-GON : I don't sense anything.
    OBI-WAN : It's not about the mission, Master, it's
    somethging...elsewhere...elusive.
    QUI-GON : Don't center on your anxiety, Obi-Wan. Keep your concentration
    here and now where it belongs.
    OBI-WAN : Master Yoda says I should be mindful of the future...
    QUI-GON : .....but not at the expense of the moment.
    Be mindful of the
    living Force, my young Padawan.

    TESB

    YODA: Ready, are you? What know you of ready? For eight hundred years
    have I trained Jedi. My own counsel will I keep on who is to be
    trained! A Jedi must have the deepest commitment, the most serious
    mind. (to the invisible Ben, indicating Luke) This one a long time
    have I watched. Never his mind on where he was. Hmm? What he was
    doing.
    Hmph. Adventure. Heh! Excitement. Heh! A Jedi craves not these
    things. (turning to Luke) You are reckless!

    Luke looks down. He knows it is true.

    BEN'S VOICE: So was I, if you'll remember.

    Nice topic. Here's a favorite of mine...

    TPM

    SIDIOUS: We must accelerate our plans. Begin landing your troops.

    GUNRAY: My Lord, is that...legal?

    SIDIOUS: I will make it legal.



    ANH

    TARKIN: The Imperial Senate will no longer be of any concern to us.
    I've just received word that the Emperor has dissolved the council
    permanently. The last remnants of the Old Republic have been swept
    away.

    TAGGE: That's impossible! How will the Emperor maintain control
    without the bureaucracy?

    TARKIN: The regional governors now have direct control over
    territories. Fear will keep the local systems in line. Fear of this
    battle station.





    Here we see the tyrant's predilection of subverting law when making his ascension until the time comes when he has the luxury of discarding it altogether. Very nice, Mr. Lucas.

    EPISODE ONE
    Threepio: How do you do, I am See-Threepio, Human Cyborg Relations. How might I serve you?
    Padme: He's perfect.

    THE CLONE WARS
    Threepio: Mistress Padmé, are you all right? Was I too late?
    Padme: Threepio. Your timing was perfect.

    In ROTS, I was waiting for Yoda to say:

    "About this a bad feeling I have."

    How about "stay with the ship, R2"? I'd have to check, but I'm pretty sure that both Anakin and Luke say this to him multiple times. Poor little droid.

    Don't forget this one:

    "Lock S-foils into attack positions."

    Both in ROTS and ANH.

    Good contributions people

    TPM

    NUTE : The invasion is on schedule, My Lord.
    DARTH SIDIOUS : Good. I have the Senate bogged down in procedures. By the
    time this incident comes up for a vote, they will have no choice but to
    accept your control of the system.

    ROTJ



    VADER
    The Death Star will be completed on schedule.

    EMPEROR
    You have done well, Lord Vader. And now I
    sense you wish to continue your search for
    young Skywalker.

    Obi-Wan: Why do I get the feeling you're going to be the death of me?

    ROTS:
    Anakin: Don't make me kill you.

    ANH
    Obi-Wan: If you strike me down I shall become more powerful than you can possibly imagine.

    QUI-GON : Don't let them send ant transmissions. Be wary...I sense a
    disturbance in the Force.

    OBI-WAN : I feel it also, Master.

    TESB

    EMPEROR: There is a great disturbance in the Force.

    VADER: I have felt it.

    Padme says it in episode 2 on Tatooine, I think. Anakin says it in episode 3 on Mustafar so R2 doesn't see what he's about to do. I can't remember Luke saying it.

    I've used this in another thread but
    Shmi- 'Anakin, this path has been placed before you. The choice is yours alone.' -1
    Padme- 'Anakin, you're breaking my heart. You're going down a path I can't follow'-3
    Leia- 'He's got to follow his own path. No one can choose it for him' -4

    "you said that the biggest problem in the universe is no one helps each other..." Anakin

    "you have brought hope to those who have none." Shmi

    "help me, obi-wan kenobi, you're my only hope." Leia

    ROTS: The Jedi are relentless; if they are not all destroyed, it will be civil war without end.

    ANH: It is a period of civil war.

    ROTS: The Chancellor will not be able to control the thousands of star systems without keeping the Senate intact.

    ANH: How will the Emperor maintain control without the bureaucracy?

    QUI-GON : ...moisture farms for the most part, but also a few indigenous
    tribes and scavengers. The few spaceports like this one are havens for
    those who do not wish to be found...

    ANH

    BEN: Mos Eisley Spaceport. You will never find a more wretched hive of
    scum and villainy. We must be cautious.

    QUI-GON : Perhaps I killed a Jedi and stole it from him.
    ANAKIN : I don't think so... No one can kill a Jedi Knight.
    QUI-GON : I wish that were so...

    ROTS

    ANAKIN: I don't know . . . Many Jedi have been killed

    YODA: An old friend has learned the path to immortality.
    OBI-WAN: Who?
    YODA: One who has returned from the netherworld of the Force to train me . . . your old Master, Qui-Gon Jinn.

    "Now stay here, and keep out of trouble." Obi-Wan to Jar-Jar.

    "Once we get inside, Annie, you find a safe place to hide and stay there." Qui-Gon to Anakin

    AOTC
    "Anakin, We will deal with Count Dooku. The most important thing for you is to stay where you are." Mace to Anakin.

    ROTS
    "If what you told me is true, you will have gained my trust, but for now remain here." Mace to Anakin.

    ANH
    "Owen, he can't stay here forever. Most of his friends have gone. It means so much to him." Beru to Owen

    "Be patient, Luke. Stay and watch over the droids." Obi-Wan

    TESB
    "I thought you decided to stay." Leia to Han

    "You must not go!" Yoda to Luke

    ROTJ
    "I have decided that we shall stay here." C-3PO to anyone listening.

    And as someone else noted, Artoo in almost every film (often multiple times) is being told to STAY with the ship. Its kind of the establishing moment of R2 and 3PO's relationship in Attack of the Clones. R2 wants to go, 3PO is more than happy to stay.

    "Obi-Wan... there's still good in him... I know there's... still..." Padme to Obi-Wan

    ROTJ
    "There's still good in him. I've felt it." Luke to Leia

    Luke's already taken up his father's path; now it's time to temper it with the part of his mother's that allows him to stay in the light where Anakin fell to darkness.

    And of course, tying the STAY and HELP themes together again:

    "We have to go back. This is your last chance to return with us. You have nowhere to go. You cannot survive outside the city shell. We only want to help you. This is your last chance." Robot from THX 1138.
