No listen!! Jar Jar forced Qui-Gon to take him by tackling Qui-Gon in the swamp. Then he just wouldn't go away. Jar Jar didn't tackle Qui-Gon. Jar Jar panicked, tried to get away, then ran into Qui-Gon who saved his life. Jar Jar didn't go away afterwards because he was completely alone, and he wanted to help Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan. Remember, Jar Jar told the Jedi about the Gungan city. He only went there with the Jedi because the Jedi asked him to escort them there. And as I said before, Jar Jar didn't ask the Jedi to take him with them when they went to Theed, he only asked for them to help free him from punishment. Then later Qui-Gon saved Jar Jar from being executed because he's not that heartless. Not that heartless? Qui-Gon IS NOT heartless by any means. Would you let a good hearted creature (a creature who ultimately got you from point A to point B) be executed? I certainly hope not, because if so, I'm going to stay away from you And if Jar Jar hadn't told Padme about the Gungan's army they would have stayed on Coruscant where it's safe. and Qui-Gon wouldn't have died!!! Even if Jar Jar hadn't told Padme about the Gungan army, Padme would still have attempted to take control over Naboo again anyway. And Qui-Gon died because of Maul, NOT Jar Jar. The question is whether or not Qui-Gon could have actually found someone willing to take Jar Jar No, the question is, are you actually serious about this debate?
