"I can only protect you, I can't fight a war for you."
I have come to resolve this attack on our sovereignty now!
You were right about one thing Master, the negototians were short.
When they find us, they will crush us, grind us into tiny pieces and blast us into oblivion!
You have been a good apprentice, Obi-Wan, and a much wiser man than I. I forsee you will be a great Jedi Knight.
Wipe them out. All of them.
The boy is dangerous. They all sense it, why can't you?
I have a bad feeling about this.
I don't sense anything.
It's not about the mission, Master. It's something elsewhere...elusive...
any line by Sidious
"Wipe them out-all of them."
"Get that slunted slime out of my face."
Up! I knew this was around here somewhere...
"the ability to speak does not make you intelligent" -american politics 2004 anyone?
lol. Too true.
I was not elected to watch my people suffer and die, while you discuss this invasion in a committee!
I love the tone and valid point in this line. Great stuff!
You?ve been a good apprentice Obi-Wan. And you?re a much wiser man than I am. I foresee you will become a great Jedi Knight.
"Go back! But, Your Majesty, be realistic! They will force you to sign the treaty! Please Your Majesty. Stay here, where it's safe."
The irony behind that line, coupled with the barest glint of a smile on Palpatine's face as the scene ends, makes this perhaps my favorite dialogue in the movie. Ian is brilliant. I can only hope that at some point in ROTS, Padme realizes how Palpy has been manipulating her from the very beginning.
Of course, there are many other great quotes as well...
You had me at Midochlorian, you had me at Midochlorian...
Amidala: "We'll take the long way"
Excellent change of strategy=) I'd do the same thing if I opened a door and found Darth Maul waiting for me...
Some of these are serious and some are funny.
1. Kitster's right. I'll win this time.
2. I hope you didn't KILL anyone I know for it.
3. THEY'LL BLOW YOU UP--BOOM!!!
4. I think you can kiss your trade franchise goodbye.
5. More likely they were WIPED OUT.
6. Oh, excuse me. (TC-14).
7. WHHHHEEEERE are you taking them???
8. He is too old.
9. What tells me we've picked up another pathetic lifeform?
10. THE DEATH TOLL IS CATASTROPHIC!!!
11. VOTE NOW VOTE NOW VOTE NOW
12. Chesko Sebulba.
13. What's that got to do with anything?
14. NOW, Viceroy, we will discuss a NEW treaty.
15. I will sign NO TREATY, Senator.
16. Whosa diss?
17. --That crazy sound the Kaadu make--
18. How wude.
19. Oooh! Icky Icky goo!
20. Either way, you win.
21. Captain, look!
22. We muzz do something.
23. Ani, Watto won't let you.
24. My tounge is faaat. Wrerz da wrenrch. Dhankoo.
25. Wouldn't have lasted so long anyway if I wasn't so good at building things.
26. What do you mean "naked?"
Those are some of my favorite and funny lines off the top of my head.
"I will sign NO treaty Senator, my fate will be no different than that of our people."
The line is probably the best line ever delivered by Queen Amidala. I love the tone of her voice!
"Uhh...wait....uhhh...you're under arrest." - battle droid captain
"Any help here would be hot." - Jar Jar
"Well that smells stinkowhiff." - Jar Jar
Wht do I sense we've picked up another pathetic life form?
"Not for a Sith... This is my apprentice, Darth Maul. He will find your lost ship."
Hey-I thought of more!
Anakin Skywalker, meet Obi-Wan Kenobi.
This isn't exactly because of the line itself, but because of the forshadowing of the future.
Fear leads to anger, anger leads to hate, hate leads to suffering.
Master don't defy the Council, not again!
I will do what I must, Obi-Wan.
You were banished because you were klumsy?
This is mostly because I love the way he says klumsy!
Always two there are, no more, no less, a Master and an apprentice.
I can only protect you. I can't fight a war for you.
Qui-Gon's defiance I sense in you. Need that, you do not.
It's a trick. Send no reply. Send no transmission of any kind.
Just because of Obi-Wan's attitude.
Alright, that's it. it's all I can think of. Ta!
I agree the "wipe them out, all of them" line gave me the chills. I also love the scene when Maul reveals himself at the palace, and Qui-gon comments "we'll handle this" (it gives the scene much drama for a great fight to come).
"Greed can be a powerful ally", because it is a key to the saga, foreshadowing the machinations of Palpatine to come, as well as Qui-Gon's simple use of others' greed for good. Also, "Your focus determines your reality", because it explains, among other things, the two approaches, by Sidious and Qui-Gon, to greed and power...
Any line by Sidious.
At last we will have revenge-Darth Maul.
Anything said by Capt. Tarpals to Panaka. Which isn't much really but....
"Wipe them out, all of them!"
"are you an angel?"
"what yet? moster out there leakin' in here all sinking and no power, when usa thinking wesa in trouble?"
"de scruni dopot slamo"
(don't count on it slime ball)
"it's beautiful, but i don't need this to remember you by."
Maybe we need a "Best TPM Lines" contest, like in the AOTC forum...?
"Master, what's a bongo?"
"It's a transport...I hope."
"We would neeeeeever do aaaaanything without the approooooval of the Seeeeenate"
"Have you ever encountered a Jedi Knight before, sir?"
"Well, no, but I, er...seal the blast doors!"
"Don't do that again..."
"Our communications disruption can mean only one thing..." *pause, meaningful nod* "...invasion!"
(It's all about that meaningful nod )
"Mind tricks donna work on me, only monnneyy!"
"You...could call for a vote of no-confidence in Chancellor Valorum..."
"The bureaucrats are in charge now."
TPM, like all the SW films, is damn quotable.
