Quotes for Darth Vader

Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977)

Ben Obi-Wan Kenobi: [as Obi-Wan finds him and ignites lightsaber] I've been waiting for you, Obi-Wan. We meet again, at last. The circle is now complete. When I left you I was but the learner, but now I am the master.

Ben Obi-Wan Kenobi: Only a master of evil dies.

[fights Vader]

Darth Vader: Your powers are weak, old man.

Ben Obi-Wan Kenobi: You can't win, Darth. If you strike me down I will become more powerful than you could possibly imagine.

[fights more]

Darth Vader: You should not have come back.

[fights more]

Luke: [Obi-Wan spots him and allows himself to be killed] NO!

[stormtroopers shoot at him]


Darth Vader: I have you now!


Darth Vader: He is here.

Governor Tarkin: Obi-Wan Kenobi? What makes you think so?

Darth Vader: A tremor in the Force. The last time I felt it was in the presence of my old master.

Governor Tarkin: Surely he must be dead by now.

Darth Vader: Don't underestimate the Force.

Governor Tarkin: The Jedi are extinct, their fire has gone out of the universe. You, my friend, are all that's left of their religion.

[answering a comm signal]

Governor Tarkin: Yes?

Voice over comm: We have an emergency alert in detention block AA-23.

Governor Tarkin: The Princess? Put all sections on alert.

Darth Vader: Obi-wan *is* here. The Force is with him.

Governor Tarkin: If you're right, he must not be allowed to escape.

Darth Vader: Escape is not his plan. I must face him, alone.


General Tagge: What of the Rebellion? If the Rebels have obtained a complete technical reading of this station, it is possible, however unlikely, they might find a weakness and exploit it.

Darth Vader: The plans you refer to will soon be back in our hands.

Admiral Motti: Any attack made by the Rebels against this station would be a useless gesture, no matter what technical data they have obtained. This station is now the ultimate power in the universe! I suggest we use it!

Darth Vader: Don't be too proud of this technological terror you've constructed. The ability to destroy a planet is insignificant next to the power of the Force.

Admiral Motti: Don't try to frighten us with your sorcerer's ways, Lord Vader. Your sad devotion to that ancient religion has not helped you conjure up the stolen data tapes, or given you clairvoyance enough to find the rebels' hidden fort-...

[Vader makes a pinching motion and Motti starts choking]

Darth Vader: I find your lack of faith disturbing.

Governor Tarkin: Enough of this! Vader, release him!

Darth Vader: As you wish.

[He does]


Officer Cass: Our scout ships have reached Dantooine. They found the remains of a Rebel base, but they estimate that it has been deserted for some time. They are now conducting an extensive search of the surrounding systems.

Governor Tarkin: [referring to Leia] She lied. She lied to us!

Darth Vader: I told you she would never consciously betray the Rebellion.

Governor Tarkin: Terminate her... immediately!


Darth Vader: I've been waiting for you, Obi-Wan. We meet again, at last. The circle is now complete. When I left you, I was but the learner; now *I* am the master.

Ben Obi-Wan Kenobi: Only a master of evil, Darth.

[lightsabers clash]


[referring to Obi Wan]

Governor Tarkin: If you're right, he must not be allowed to escape.

Darth Vader: Escape is not his plan. I must face him. Alone.


Darth Vader: I sense something; a presence I've not felt since...


Darth Vader: The Force is strong with this one.


Darth Vader: [addressing the Tantive IV's captain, whom he is interrogating] Where are those transmissions you intercepted? WHAT have you DONE with those plans?

[holding Captain Antilles off the floor, the Captain's feet are dangling at Vader's knees]

Captain Antilles: We intercepted no transmissions...


Captain Antilles: ... This is a consular ship... We're on a -


Captain Antilles: diplomatic mission...

Darth Vader: [shouting] If this is a consular ship, WHERE is the ambassador?

[Antilles dies before he can answer, and Vader throws the man's body against the wall, narrowly missing 2 stormtroopers]

Darth Vader: Commander, tear this ship apart until you find those plans! And bring me all passengers, I want them ALIVE!


Darth Vader: Your powers are weak, old man.

Ben Obi-Wan Kenobi: You can't win, Darth. If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine.


Darth Vader: [zeroing in on Luke's fighter] I have you now!

[one of Vader's wing-men explodes]

Darth Vader: What?

Han Solo: YAHOOO!

[the Millenium Falcon appears]

Tie Fighter pilot: Look out!

[Han fires again, the second fighter collides with Vader's, sending him careening away]

Han Solo: You're all clear, kid, now let's *blow* this thing and go home!

[Luke fires, the torpedoes dive down the exhaust port; the Millenium Falcon leads the remaining rebel ships away as the Death Star explodes]


Darth Vader: This will be a day long remembered. It has seen the end of Kenobi, it will soon see the end of the Rebellion.


Governor Tarkin: Perhaps she would respond to an alternative form of persuasion.

Darth Vader: What do you mean?

Governor Tarkin: I think it is time we demonstrated the full power of this station. Set your course for Alderaan.


[Darth Vader enters Princess Leia's cell, followed by a sinister looking interrogation droid]

Darth Vader: And now, your highness, we will discuss the location of your hidden rebel base...


Governor Tarkin: Are they away?

Darth Vader: They've just made the jump into hyperspace.

Governor Tarkin: You're sure the homing beacon is secure aboard their ship? I'm taking an awful risk, Vader. This had better work.


Princess Leia Organa: Darth Vader. Only you could be so bold. The Imperial Senate will not sit still for this. When they hear you've attacked a diplomatic...

Darth Vader: Don't act so surprised, Your Highness. You weren't on any mercy mission this time. Several transmissions were beamed to this ship by rebel spies. I want to know what happened to the plans they sent you.

Princess Leia Organa: I don't know what you're talking about. I am a member of the Imperial Senate on a diplomatic mission to Alderaan...

Darth Vader: You are part of the Rebel Alliance and a traitor! Take her away!


[Attack warning alarms are sounding throughout the Death Star and stormtroopers, officers & technicians are running to their posts. An Imperial officer is trying to find Darth Vader & eventually finds him calmly walking down a hall towards the hangar bay]

Imperial Officer: We count 30 Rebel ships, Lord Vader, but they're so small they're avoiding our turbo lasers!

Darth Vader: We'll have to destroy them ship to ship. Get the crews to their fighters.

[the officer turns to carry out the order while Vader continues towards the hangar bay]


[Vader has reached the hangar bay where his personal Tie Advanced x1 is housed, as alarms continue to wail. He meets 2 Imperial pilots heading for the same hangar & addresses them]

Darth Vader: Several fighters have broken off from the main group. Come with me!

[the pilots follow Vader to the hangar]


Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back (1980)

Admiral Piett: Lord Vader, our ships have completed their scan of the area and found nothing. If the Millennium Falcon went into light-speed, it'll be on the other side of the galaxy by now.

Darth Vader: Alert all commands. Calculate every possible destination along their last known trajectory.

Admiral Piett: Yes, my Lord. We'll find them.

Darth Vader: Don't fail me again, Admiral.


Darth Vader: Yes, Admiral?

Admiral Piett: Our ships have sighted the Millennium Falcon, Lord. But it has entered an asteroid field and we can not risk...

Darth Vader: [interrupting] Asteroids do not concern me, Admiral! I want that ship, not excuses!


Darth Vader: [kneeling before Emperor Palpatine's hologram] What is thy bidding, my master?

Emperor Palpatine: There is a great disturbance in the Force.

Darth Vader: I have felt it.

Emperor Palpatine: We have a new enemy. The young Rebel who destroyed the Death Star. I have no doubt this boy is the offspring of Anakin Skywalker.

Darth Vader: How is that possible?

Emperor Palpatine: Search your feelings, Lord Vader. You will know it to be true. He could destroy us.

Darth Vader: He's just a boy. Obi-Wan can no longer help him.

Emperor Palpatine: The Force is strong with him. The son of Skywalker must not become a Jedi.

Darth Vader: If he could be turned, he would become a powerful ally.

Emperor Palpatine: [intrigued] Yes... He would be a great asset. Can it be done?

Darth Vader: He will join us or die, master.


Darth Vader: The force is with you, young Skywalker, but you are not a Jedi yet.


Darth Vader: Impressive. Most impressive. Obi-Wan has taught you well. You have controlled your fear. Now, release your anger. Only your hatred can destroy me.


Darth Vader: There is no escape. Don't make me destroy you.


Darth Vader: Luke, you do not yet realize your importance. You have only begun to discover your power. Join me, and I will complete your training. With our combined strength, we can end this destructive conflict and bring order to the galaxy.

Luke: I'll never join you!

Darth Vader: If you only knew the power of the Dark Side. Obi-Wan never told you what happened to your father.

Luke: He told me enough! He told me *you* killed him!

Darth Vader: No. *I* am your father.

Luke: No. No. That's not true. That's impossible!

Darth Vader: Search your feelings, you *know* it to be true!

Luke: [anguished] No! No!


Darth Vader: Your destiny lies with me Skywalker. Obi-Wan knew this to be true.

Luke: No...


Darth Vader: Calrissian. Take the princess and the Wookie to my ship.

Lando: You said they'd be left at the city under my supervision!

Darth Vader: I am altering the deal. Pray I don't alter it any further.


Darth Vader: There will be a substantial reward for the one who finds the Millennium Falcon. You are free to use any methods necessary, but I want them alive. No disintegrations.

Boba Fett: As you wish.


Darth Vader: You may take Captain Solo to Jabba the Hutt after I have Skywalker.

Boba Fett: He's no good to me dead.

Darth Vader: He will not be permanently damaged.


Lando: Lord Vader, what about Leia and the Wookiee?

Darth Vader: They must never again leave this city.

Lando: [outraged] That was never a condition of our agreement, nor was giving Han to this bounty hunter!

Darth Vader: Perhaps you think you're being treated unfairly?

Lando: [after a pause; nervous tone] No.

Darth Vader: Good. You know it would be unfortunate if I had to leave a garrison here.

Lando: [to himself] This deal is getting worse all the time!


Darth Vader: [having cornered Luke during their lightsaber battle] You are beaten. It is useless to resist. Don't let yourself be destroyed as Obi-Wan did.


Boba Fett: What if he doesn't survive? He's worth a lot to me.

Darth Vader: The Empire will compensate you, if he dies. Put him in.


[after choking Captain Needa to death]

Darth Vader: Apology accepted, Captain Needa.


C-3PO: Oh. They've encased him in Carbonite. He should be quite well protected. If he survived the freezing process, that is.

Darth Vader: Well, Calrissian, did he survive?

Lando: Yes, he's alive, and in perfect hibernation.

Darth Vader: He's all yours, bounty hunter. Reset the chamber for Skywalker.


[Darth Vader has just learned of Admiral Ozzel's big blunder, and activates a viewscreen]

Admiral Ozzel: [appearing onscreen with Captain Piett] Lord Vader, the fleet has moved out of lightspeed and we're preparing to...

[Ozzel stops, and suddenly begins to choke, clutching at his throat]

Darth Vader: You have failed me for the last time, Admiral! Captain Piett?

Captain Piett: Yes, my lord?

Darth Vader: Make ready to land our troops beyond their energy field, and deploy the fleet, so that nothing gets off the system.

[beside Piett, Admiral Ozzel utters one last strangled gasp, and falls over dead]

Darth Vader: You are in command now... Admiral Piett!

Admiral Piett: Thank you, Lord Vader.


Darth Vader: All too easy.


Darth Vader: Luke, you can destroy the Emperor. He has foreseen this. It is your destiny. Join me, and together we can rule the galaxy as father and son.


Darth Vader: What is it, General?

General Veers: My Lord, the fleet has moved out of lightspeed. Com Scan has detected an energy field protecting an area of the sixth planet of the Hoth System. The field is strong enough to deflect any bombardment.

Darth Vader: [getting angry] The Rebels are alerted to our presence. Admiral Ozzel came out of lightspeed too close to the system.

General Veers: He... he felt surprise was wiser...

Darth Vader: He is as clumsy as he is stupid! General... prepare your troops for a surface attack.

General Veers: Yes, my Lord.


Lando: Lord Vader, we only use this facility for carbon freezing. If you put him in there it might kill him.

Darth Vader: I do not want the Emperor's prize damaged. We will test it on Captain Solo.


Darth Vader: You have learned much, young one.

Luke: You'll find I'm full of surprises.


Darth Vader: Yes, Admiral, what is it?

Admiral Piett: The Emperor commands you make contact with him.

Darth Vader: Move the ship out of the asteroid field so that we can send a clear transmission.


Darth Vader: Alert my Star Destroyer to prepare for my arrival.


Darth Vader: [in 1997 Special Edition only] Alert my Star Destroyer to prepare for my arrival.


Darth Vader: We would be honored if you would join us.


Lando: [talks to Darth Vader about trapping Luke Skywalker] Lord Vader, we only use this facility for carbon freezing. You put him in there, it might kill him!

Darth Vader: I do not want the Emperor's prize damaged. We will test it... on Captain Solo.


Darth Vader: [1980 theatrical version] Bring my shuttle.


Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi (1983)

Luke: I'll not leave you here. I've got to save you.

Anakin: You already have, Luke.


Darth Vader: Luke... help me take this mask off.

Luke: But you'll die.

Darth Vader: Nothing... can stop that now. Just for once... let me... look on you with my *own* eyes.

[Luke takes off Darth Vader's mask one piece at a time. Underneath, Luke sees the face of a pale, scarred, bald-headed, old man - his father, Anakin. Anakin sadly looks at Luke but then gives a tired smile]

Anakin: Now... go, my son. Leave me.

Luke: No. You're coming with me. I'll not leave you here, I've got to save you.

Anakin: You already... have, Luke. You were right. You were right about me. Tell your sister... you were right.

[Anakin smiles and his eyes begin to droop slumps down in death while giving one last dying breath]

Luke: Father... I won't leave you.


Darth Vader: You cannot hide forever, Luke.

Luke: I will not fight you.

Darth Vader: Give yourself to the Dark Side. It is the only way you can save your friends. Yes, your thoughts betray you. Your feelings for them are strong. Especially for... sister. So, you have a twin sister. Your feelings have now betrayed her, too. Obi-Wan was wise to hide her from me. Now his failure is complete. If you will not turn to the Dark Side... then perhaps she will...

Luke: [igniting light saber, screams] NEVER!


Moff Jerjerrod: Lord Vader, this is an unexpected pleasure. We are honored by your presence...

Darth Vader: You may dispense with the pleasantries, Commander. I'm here to put you back on schedule.

Moff Jerjerrod: I assure you, Lord Vader. My men are working as fast as they can.

Darth Vader: Perhaps I can find new ways to motivate them.

Moff Jerjerrod: I tell you, this station will be operational as planned.

Darth Vader: The Emperor does not share your optimistic appraisal of the situation.

Moff Jerjerrod: But he asks the impossible. I need more men.

Darth Vader: Then perhaps you can tell him when he arrives.

Moff Jerjerrod: [aghast] The Emperor's coming here?

Darth Vader: That is correct, Commander. And he is most displeased with your apparent lack of progress.

Moff Jerjerrod: We shall double our efforts.

Darth Vader: I hope so, Commander, for your sake. The Emperor is not as forgiving as I am.


Moff Jerjerrod: The Emperor's coming here?

Darth Vader: That is correct, Commander. And, he is most displeased with your apparent lack of progress.

Moff Jerjerrod: We shall double our efforts.

Darth Vader: I hope so, Commander, for your sake. The Emperor is not as forgiving as I am.


Darth Vader: Obi-Wan has taught you well.


[Vader brings Luke before the Emperor and hands him Luke's weapon]

Darth Vader: His light saber.

The Emperor: [to Luke] Ah, yes. A Jedi's weapon, much like your father's. By now you must know that your father can never be turned from the Dark Side. So will it be with you.


Luke: Come with me. Leave everything behind.

Darth Vader: Obi-Wan once thought as you do. You don't know the power of the Dark Side. I must obey my master.


Darth Vader: A small rebel force has penetrated the shield and landed on Endor.

The Emperor: Yes, I know.

Darth Vader: My son is with them.

The Emperor: Are you sure?

Darth Vader: I have *felt* him, my master.

The Emperor: Strange that I have not. I wonder if your feelings on this matter are clear, Lord Vader.

Darth Vader: They are clear, my master.


Luke: Search your feelings, Father, you can't do this. I feel the conflict within you. Let go of your hate.

Darth Vader: It is too late for me, son. The Emperor will show you the true nature of the Force. He is your master now.

Luke: Then my father is truly dead.


Darth Vader: Do they have a code clearance?

Admiral Piett: It's an older code, sir, but it checks out. I was about to clear them.


[Aboard the Death Star, The Emperor's shuttle is greeted by hundreds of Imperial troops and officers. As the last of six red-robed Royal Guards exit the shuttle, both Darth Vader and Moff Jerjerrod kneel in reverence at the foot of the boarding ramp as the Emperor himself emerges]

Darth Vader: Rise, my friend.

The Emperor: The Death Star will be completed on schedule.

Darth Vader: You've done well, Lord Vader. And now I sense you wish to continue your search for young Skywalker.

The Emperor: Yes, my Master.

Darth Vader: Patience, my friend. In time, he will seek *you* out, and when he does, you must bring him before me. He has grown strong. Only together can we turn him to the Dark Side of the Force.

The Emperor: As you wish.

The Emperor: Everything is proceeding as I have foreseen.


Luke: I will not fight you, father.

Darth Vader: You are unwise to lower your defenses!


Darth Vader: He will come to me?

The Emperor: I have foreseen it. His compassion for you will be his undoing. He will come to you and then you will bring him before me.

Darth Vader: As you wish.


[igniting Luke's saber]

Darth Vader: I see you have constructed a new light saber. Your skills are complete. Indeed you are powerful as the Emperor has foreseen.


Admiral Piett: Shall I hold them?

Darth Vader: No. Leave them to me. I will deal with them myself.


Darth Vader: The Emperor has been expecting you.

Luke: I know... father.

Darth Vader: So, you have accepted the truth?

Luke: I have accepted that you were once a Jedi named Anakin Skywalker, my father.

Darth Vader: [angrily] That name no longer has any meaning for me!


Darth Vader: What is thy bidding, my master?

The Emperor: Send the fleet to the far side of Endor. There it will stay until called for.

Darth Vader: What of the reports of the rebel fleet massing near Sullust?

The Emperor: It is of no concern. Soon the Rebellion will be crushed and young Skywalker will be one of us. Your work here is finished, my friend. Go out to the command ship and await my orders.

Darth Vader: Yes, my master.


Luke: Your thoughts betray you, Father. I feel the good in you, the conflict.

Darth Vader: There is no conflict.

Luke: You couldn't bring yourself to kill me before and I don't believe you'll destroy me now.

Darth Vader: You underestimate the power of the Dark Side. If you will not fight, then you will meet your destiny.


[from the Blu-ray version, as Vader watches Luke being destroyed by the Emperor's Force lightning]

Darth Vader: No.

[Vader turns to the Emperor]


[Vader lifts the Emperor over his head, leading the Emperor to scream in shock as his force lightning shoots upward onto Vader, who throws the screaming Emperor into the abyss of the throne room and the Emperor hits the core of the shaft, causing an explosion, then Luke pulls his weakened father to safety]

[Vader brings Luke before The Emperor and hands him Luke's weapon]

Darth Vader: His light saber.

The Emperor: [to Luke] Ah, yes. A Jedi's weapon, much like your father's. By now you must know that your father can never be turned from the Dark Side. So will it be with you.

The Emperor: [In the throne room, Luke is watching the Imperial fleet attack the Rebels from the huge throne room window] As you can see, my young apprentice, your friends have failed. Now witness the firepower of this fully ARMED and OPERATIONAL battle station!

[The Emperor hits the comlink switch on his throne]

The Emperor: Fire at will, Commander!

Moff Jerjerrod: [In the Death Star's firing room, a group of hooded Imperial gunners starts priming the Death Star's superlaser - a device so advanced it can be trained on capital ships, such as the Rebel aircraft carriers. A series of tones signify that the weapon is ready] Fire!

[a second gunner hits a switch, and a huge laser beam roars down a firing shaft. The outer surface of the Death Star shows a huge laser dish start to develop, and then a titanic laser beam moves out from the Death Star's superlaser. It hits the Rebel Calamari Cruiser 'Liberty' and vaporizes the huge carrier in less than a second]

Darth Vader: A small rebel force has penetrated the shield and landed on Endor.

The Emperor: Yes, I know.

Darth Vader: My son is with them.

The Emperor: Are you sure?

Darth Vader: I have *felt* him, my master.

The Emperor: Strange that I have not. I wonder if your feelings on this matter are clear, Lord Vader.

Darth Vader: They are clear, my master.

The Emperor: And now, young Skywalker... you will die.

[Aboard the Death Star, The Emperor's shuttle is greeted by hundreds of Imperial troops and officers. As the last of six red-robed Royal Guards exit the shuttle, both Darth Vader and Moff Jerjerrod kneel in reverence at the foot of the boarding ramp as The Emperor himself emerges]

Darth Vader: Rise, my friend.

The Emperor: The Death Star will be completed on schedule.

Darth Vader: You've done well, Lord Vader. And now I sense you wish to continue your search for young Skywalker.

The Emperor: Yes, my Master.

Darth Vader: Patience, my friend. In time, he will seek *you* out, and when he does, you must bring him before me. He has grown strong. Only together can we turn him to the Dark Side of the Force.

The Emperor: As you wish.

The Emperor: Everything is proceeding as I have foreseen.

Darth Vader: He will come to me?

The Emperor: I have foreseen it. His compassion for you will be his undoing. He will come to you and then you will bring him before me.

Darth Vader: As you wish.

The Emperor: [to Luke] The Alliance... will die. As will your friends. Good, I can feel your anger. I am defenceless. Take your weapon. Strike me down with all of your hatred and your journey towards the dark side will be complete!

The Emperor: Everything that has transpired has done so according to my design. Your friends, up there on the sanctuary moon, are walking into a trap, as is your Rebel fleet. It was *I* who allowed the Alliance to know the location of the shield generator. It is quite safe from your pitiful little band. An entire legion of my best troops awaits them. Oh, I'm afraid the deflector shield will be quite operational when your friends arrive.

Luke: Never. I'll never turn to the Dark Side. You've failed, your highness. I am a Jedi, like my father before me.

The Emperor: [angry] So be it... Jedi!

Darth Vader: What is thy bidding, my master?

The Emperor: Send the fleet to the far side of Endor. There it will stay until called for.

Darth Vader: What of the reports of the rebel fleet massing near Sullust?

The Emperor: It is of no concern. Soon the Rebellion will be crushed and young Skywalker will be one of us. Your work here is finished, my friend. Go out to the command ship and await my orders.

Darth Vader: Yes, my master.

The Emperor: I'm looking forward to completing your training. In time you will call *me* master.

Luke: You're gravely mistaken. You won't convert me as you did my father.

The Emperor: Oh no, my young Jedi. You will find that it is you who are mistaken, about a great many things.

The Emperor: Come, boy, see for yourself. From here, you will witness the final destruction of the Alliance and the end of your insignificant rebellion.

[Luke's eyes go to his lightsabre]

The Emperor: You want this, don't you? The hate is swelling in you now. Take your Jedi weapon. Use it. I am unarmed. Strike me down with it. Give in to your anger. With each passing moment you make yourself more my servant.

Luke: No.

The Emperor: It is unavoidable. It is your destiny. You, like your father, are now *mine*.

The Emperor: [to Luke] Good! Use your aggressive feelings, boy. Let the hate flow through you!

The Emperor: If you will not be turned, you will be destroyed!

[shoots Luke with Force lightning]

The Emperor: Young fool... Only now, at the end, do you understand...

[The Emperor shoots at Luke with more Force lighting]

The Emperor: Your feeble skills are no match for the power of the Dark Side.

[shoots Luke with another burst of Force lighting]

The Emperor: Now, you will pay the price for your lack of vision!

[shoots more Force lighting]

Luke: Soon I'll be dead, and you with me.

The Emperor: [laughing] Perhaps you refer to the imminent attack of your rebel fleet? Yes, I assure you, we are quite safe from your friends here.

Luke: Your overconfidence is your weakness.

The Emperor: Your faith in your friends is yours!




Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace (1999)

[Anakin is about to leave his mother behind to train as a Jedi]

Anakin: I can't do it, Mom. I just can't do it.

Shmi Skywalker: Ani...

Anakin: Will I ever see you again?

Shmi Skywalker: What does your heart tell you?

Anakin: I hope so. Yes... I guess.

Shmi Skywalker: Then we will see each other again.

Anakin: I will come back and free you, Mom. I promise.

Shmi Skywalker: Now, be brave, and don't look back. Don't look back.


Anakin: Are you an angel?

Queen Amidala: What?

Anakin: An angel. I've heard the deep space pilots talk about them. They live on the moons of Iego, I think. They're the most beautiful creatures in the universe.

Queen Amidala: You're a funny little boy. How do you know so much?

Anakin: I listen to all the traders and star pilots who come through here. I'm a pilot, you know, and someday I'm going to fly away from this place.


Queen Amidala: You're a slave?

Anakin: I'm a person and my name is Anakin.


Yoda: How feel you?

Anakin: Cold, sir.

Yoda: Afraid are you?

Anakin: No, sir.

Yoda: See through you we can.

Mace Windu: Be mindful of your feelings.

Ki-Adi-Mundi: Your thoughts dwell on your mother.

Anakin: I miss her.

Yoda: Afraid to lose her I think, hmm?

Anakin: What has that got to do with anything?

Yoda: Everything! Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering. I sense much fear in you.


Anakin: You're a Jedi Knight, aren't you?

Qui-Gon Jinn: What makes you think that?

Anakin: I saw your laser sword. Only Jedi carry that kind of weapon.

Qui-Gon Jinn: Perhaps I killed a Jedi and took it from him.

Anakin: I don't think so. No one can kill a Jedi.

Qui-Gon Jinn: I wish that were so.


Anakin: I've built a racer. It's the fastest ever! There's a big race tomorrow on Boonta Eve. You could enter my pod. It's all but finished...

Shmi Skywalker: Anakin, Watto won't let you...

Anakin: Watto, doesn't know I've built it. You could make him think it was yours and you could get him to let me pilot it for you.

Shmi Skywalker: I don't want you to race Anni, it's awful. I die every time Watto makes you do it.

Anakin: But mom, I love it. The prize money would more than pay for the parts they need.


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


Anakin: But what about mom? Is she free too? You're coming too, aren't you mom?

Qui-Gon Jinn: I tried to free your mother Anni, but Watto wouldn't have it.

Shmi Skywalker: Son, my place is here, my future is here. It is time for you to let go.


Anakin: I will come back and free you mom, I promise.


Sebulba: You won't walk away from this one, you slave scum!

Anakin: Don't count on it, slimeball!

Sebulba: You're Bantha fodder!


Shmi Skywalker: All slaves have a transmitter placed somewhere in their body.

Anakin: I've been working on a scanner to try and locate mine.

Shmi Skywalker: Any attempt to escape...

Anakin: And they blow you up! BOOM!

Jar Jar Binks: How wude!


Anakin: Now this is pod racing!


Anakin: Qui-Gon told me to stay in this cockpit, and that's what I'm going to do!


[laser fire surrounds Naboo Starfighter. R2D2 beeps]

Anakin: I know we're in trouble, just hang on!


Anakin: What are midi-chlorians?

Qui-Gon Jinn: Midi-chlorians are a microscopic life form that resides within all living cells.


Anakin: Mom, you've always said the biggest problem in this Universe is that nobody helps each other.


Anakin: I don't know if I'll ever see her again, I wanted to say goodbye.

Queen Amidala: We will tell her for you. We are sure her heart goes with you.


Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones (2002)

Padmé Amidala: You're not all-powerful, Ani.

Anakin Skywalker: Well, I should be.


[while chasing Padme's assassin, Obi-Wan and Anakin track her to a nightclub]

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

Anakin Skywalker: Don't say that Master... You're the closest thing I have to a father... I love you. I don't want to cause you pain.

Obi-Wan Kenobi: Then why don't you listen to me?

Anakin Skywalker: I try, Master.

Obi-Wan Kenobi: Can you see him?

Anakin Skywalker: I think he's a she... and I think she's a Changeling.

Obi-Wan Kenobi: In that case be extra careful. Go and find her.

[He heads towards the bar]

Anakin Skywalker: Where are you going, Master?

Obi-Wan Kenobi: For a drink.

[while Anakin searches the nightclub for the assassin, Obi-Wan sits down at the counter, and the dealer to his right turns to him]

Elan Sleazebaggano: You wanna buy some death-sticks?

[Obi-Wan executes the Jedi Mind Trick]

Obi-Wan Kenobi: You don't want to sell me death sticks.

Elan Sleazebaggano: Ah, I don't want to sell you death sticks.

Obi-Wan Kenobi: You want to go home and rethink your life.

Elan Sleazebaggano: I want to go home and rethink my life.

[Elan leaves. The assassin closes in on Obi-Wan, but just before she can shoot him, he turns around and uses his lightsaber to cut off her arm. Anakin is suddenly at Obi-Wan's side]

Anakin Skywalker: Easy... Jedi business. Go back to your drinks.


Obi-Wan: Anakin, may the force be with you.

Anakin: May the force be with you, Master.


Anakin: We will find out who's trying to kill you, Padmé. I promise you.


Obi-Wan: Where are you going? He went that way!

Anakin: Master, if we keep this chase going any longer that creep is gonna end up deep fried. And personally, I'd very much like to find out who he is, and who he's working for. This is a short cut... I think.

Obi-Wan: Well, you've lost him!


Anakin: She went into the club, master.

Obi-Wan: Patience. Use the force. Think.


Anakin: Attachment is forbidden. Possession is forbidden. Compassion, which I would define as unconditional love, is essential to a Jedi's life. So you might say, that we are encouraged to love.


Anakin: It doesn't have to be that way. We could keep it a secret.

Padme: We'd be living a lie. One we couldn't keep, even if we wanted to. I couldn't do that. Could you, Anakin? Could you live like that?


Padme: I do not like this idea of hiding.

Anakin: Sometimes we must do what is requested of us.


Anakin: I've heard this lesson before.

Obi-Wan: You haven't learned anything, Anakin.


Anakin: Someday I will be the most powerful Jedi ever.


Anakin: Excuse me, I'm in charge of security here, milady.


[after Obi-Wan injures Zam inside the Night Club, Anakin and Obi-Wan drag her out into the alley to interrogate her]

Obi-Wan Kenobi: Do you know who it was you were trying to kill?

Zam Wesell: It was a Senator from Naboo.

Obi-Wan Kenobi: And who hired you?

Zam Wesell: It was just a job.

Anakin Skywalker: Who hired you? Tell us.

[Zam stays silent; Anakin raises his tone with anger]

Anakin Skywalker: Tell us now!

Zam Wesell: It was a bounty hunter called...

[Zam is suddenly shot in the neck by a toxic dart; Anakin and Obi-Wan see a "rocket-man" take off and fly away, and Zam dies]


Obi-Wan: I was beginning to wonder if you'd got my message.

Anakin: I retransmitted it to Coruscant, just as you'd requested, Master. Then we decided to come and rescue you.

Obi-Wan: [looks at his handcuffed hands] Good job.


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

Anakin: Don't say that, master. You're the closest thing I have to a father.


Anakin: You're the closest thing I have to a father.

Obi-Wan: Then why don't you listen to me?


Palpatine: You don't need guidance, Anakin. In time, you will learn to trust your feelings. Then, you will be invincible. I have said it many times, you are the most gifted Jedi I have ever met.

Anakin: Thank you, Your Excellency.

Palpatine: I see you becoming the greatest of all the Jedi, Anakin. Even more powerful than Master Yoda.


Anakin: When I'm around you, my mind is no longer my own.


Anakin: [telling Padme about the Sand People] I... I killed them. I killed them all. They're dead... every single one of them. And not just the men. But the women... and the children, too. They're like animals, and I slaughtered them like animals! I HATE THEM!


Obi-Wan: Just relax, concentrate.

Anakin: What about Padme?

Obi-Wan: She seems to be on top of things.


Anakin: I wasn't strong enough to save you mom. I wasn't strong enough, but I promise I won't fail again.


[In the speeder, while chasing the assassin]

Obi-Wan: You know I don't like it when you do that.

Anakin: Sorry, master. I forgot that you don't like flying.

Obi-Wan: I don't mind flying, but what you're doing is suicide.


Anakin: You're going to pay for all the Jedi that you killed today, Dooku.

Obi-Wan: We'll take him together. You go in slowly on the left...

Anakin: No, I'm taking him NOW!

Obi-Wan: No Anakin, NO!


Count Dooku: That was brave, boy, but foolish. I would have thought you'd have learned your lesson.

Anakin: I'm a slow learner.


Anakin: If you are suffering as much as I am, please tell me.

Padme: I can't... We can't... It's not possible.

Anakin: Anything is possible, Padme, listen to me.

Padme: No you listen! We live in a real world, come back to it. You're studying to become a Jedi, I'm... I'm a senator. If you follow your thoughts through to conclusion, it will take us to a place we cannot go, regardless of the way we feel about each other.

Anakin: Then you do feel something!

Padme: I will not let you give up your future for me.

Anakin: You're asking me to be rational. That is something that I know I cannot do. Believe me, I wish I could just wish away my feelings, but I can't.


Anakin: I've got a bad feeling about this.


C-3PO: Master Owen, may I present two most important visitors?

Anakin: I'm Anakin Skywalker.

Owen Lars: [intrigued, but wary, tone] Owen Lars. This is my girlfriend, Beru.

Beru: Hello.

Padme: I'm Padme.

Owen Lars: Well... I guess I'm your stepbrother. I had a feeling you might show up someday.

Anakin: Is my mother here?

[a one-legged Cliegg Lars appears]

Cliegg Lars: No, she's not. Cliegg Lars. Shmi is my wife. Come inside, we've got a lot to talk about.


Anakin: If you'll excuse me Master.

[Anakin jumps out of the speeder]

Obi-Wan: I hate it when he does that.


Padme: Please don't look at me like that.

Anakin: Why not?

Padme: Because it makes me feel uncomfortable.

Anakin: Sorry my lady.


Anakin: It's all Obi-Wan's fault. He's jealous. He's holding me back.


Padme: It must be difficult having sworn your life to the Jedi... not being able to visit the places you like... or do the things you like.

Anakin: Or be with the people I love.

Padme: Are you allowed to love? I thought that was forbidden for a Jedi.


[Anakin and Padme are about to be carted into the arena]

Anakin: Don't be afraid.

Padme: I'm not afraid to die. I've been dying a little bit each day since you came back into my life.

Anakin: What are you talking about?

Padme: I love you.

Anakin: You love me? I thought we had decided not to fall in love. That we'd be forced to live a lie and that it would destroy our lives.

Padme: I think our lives are about to be destroyed anyway. I truly... deeply... love you and before we die I want you to know.


Obi-Wan: What took you so long?

Anakin: Well, you know, Master, I couldn't find a speeder that I really liked...

Obi-Wan: There he is.

Anakin: ...with an open cockpit and the right speed capabilities.

Obi-Wan: If you spent as much time practicing your saber techniques as you did your wit, you'd rival Master Yoda as a swordsman.

Anakin: I thought I already did.

Obi-Wan: Only in your mind, my very young apprentice.


Anakin: I'm a Jedi.

Watto: A Jedi. Whaddya know?


Anakin: When I got to them we got into aggressive negotiations.

Padme: Aggressive negotiations? What's that?

Anakin: Ah, well, it's negotiations with a lightsaber.


[Anakin's lightsaber is broken in half]

Anakin: Not again. Obi-Wan's going to kill me.


[Anakin uses his Force levitation to slice a fruit for Padme]

Anakin: If Obi-Wan caught me doing that, he would be very grumpy.


Anakin: From the moment I met you, all those years ago, not a day has gone by when I haven't thought of you. And now that I'm with you again... I'm in agony. The closer I get to you, the worse it gets. The thought of not being with you- I can't breath. I'm haunted by the kiss that you should never have given me. My heart is beating... hoping that kiss will not become a scar. You are in my very soul, tormenting me... what can I do?- I will do anything you ask.

[uncomfortable pause]

Anakin: ... if you are suffering as much as I am, PLEASE, tell me.


Anakin: [about Amidala] Just being around her again is... intoxicating.


Padme: Ani? My goodness, you've grown.

Anakin: So have you, grown more beautiful... for a senator, I mean.

Padme: Ani, you'll always be that little boy I knew on Tatooine.


[to Pademe]

Anakin: Oh don't worry, I've given up trying to argue with you.


Anakin: Jedi business. Go back to your drinks.


Anakin: One day, I will become the greatest Jedi EVER. I will even learn how to stop people from dying.


Padme: We used to come here for school retreat. We would swim to that island every day. I love the water. We used to lie out on the sand and let the sun dry us and try to guess the names of the birds singing.

Anakin: I don't like sand. It's coarse and rough and irritating and it gets everywhere. Not like here. Here everything is soft and smooth.


Padme: To be angry is to be human.

Anakin: I'm a Jedi. I can be better than this.


Anakin: You call this a diplomatic solution?

Padme: No, I call it aggressive negotiations.


Anakin: You're asking me to be rational. I know that is something I cannot do.


[while pursuing Count Dooku, a laserblast knocks Padme out of the gunship]

Anakin: PADME!

[to pilot]

Anakin: Put the ship down!

Obi-Wan: Anakin! Don't let your personal feelings get in the way!

[to pilot]

Obi-Wan: Follow that speeder.

Anakin: Lower the ship!

Obi-Wan: I can't take Dooku alone! I need you! If we catch him, we can end this war right now! We have a job to do!

Anakin: I don't care! Put the ship down!

Obi-Wan: You will be expelled from the Jedi order!


Obi-Wan: COME TO YOUR SENSES! What do you think Padme would do were she in your position?

Anakin: [pause] She would do her duty.


Padme: You're making fun of me!

Anakin: Oh, no, I'd be too frightened to tease a senator!


Anakin: Mem boshka de Shmi Skywalker.

[I'm looking for Shmi Skywalker]

Watto: Ani? Little Ani? It is you!


[Cliegg Lars is telling Anakin about what happened to Shmi]

Cliegg Lars: It was just before dawn. They came out of nowhere. A hunting party of Tusken Raiders. Your mother had gone out early, like she always did, to pick mushrooms that grow on the vaporators. From the tracks, she was about halfway home when they took her. Those Tuskens walk like men, but they're vicious, mindless monsters. Thirty of us went out after her. Four of us came back. I'd be with them, only... after I lost my leg I just couldn't ride any more... until I heal. I don't want to give up on her, but she's been gone a month. There's little hope she's lasted this long.

[Anakin gets up from the table]

Owen Lars: Where are you going?

Anakin: To find my mother.

Cliegg Lars: Your mother's dead, son. Accept it.


Obi-Wan: You look tired.

Anakin: I haven't had much sleep of late.

Obi-Wan: Because of your mother?

[Anakin nods]

Obi-Wan: ...Dreams pass in time.


Obi-Wan: It's a great pleasure to see you again, milady.

Padme: It has been far too long, Master Kenobi. Ani? My goodness you've grown.

Anakin: So have you. Grown more beautiful, I mean. Well, for a Senator I mean.


Obi-Wan Kenobi: Captain Typho has more than enough men downstairs. No assassin will try that way. Any activity up here?

Anakin Skywalker: Quiet as a tomb. I don't like just waiting here for something to happen to her.

[Obi-Wan checks a palm-sized view scanner he has pulled out of his utility belt. It views R2D2, over by the door, but no sign of Padme's bed]

Obi-Wan Kenobi: What's going on?

Anakin Skywalker: [shrugs] She covered the cameras. I don't think she liked me watching her.

Obi-Wan Kenobi: What is she thinking?

Anakin Skywalker: She programmed R2 to warn us if there's an intruder.

Obi-Wan Kenobi: It's not an intruder I'm worried about. There are many other ways to kill a Senator.

Anakin Skywalker: I know, but we also want to catch this assassin. Don't we, Master?

Obi-Wan Kenobi: You're using her as bait?

Anakin Skywalker: It was her idea... Don't worry, no harm will come to her. I can sense everything going on in that room. Trust me.

Obi-Wan Kenobi: It's too risky... besides, your senses aren't that attuned, young apprentice.

Anakin Skywalker: And yours are?

Obi-Wan Kenobi: Possibly.

[Cuts to a shot of Zam Wesell loading a probe droid and dispatching it. When it cuts back, Anakin and Obi-Wan have moved their conversation to the balcony]

Obi-Wan Kenobi: You look tired.

Anakin Skywalker: I don't sleep well anymore.

Obi-Wan Kenobi: Because of your mother?

Anakin Skywalker: I don't know why I keep dreaming about her now. I haven't seen her since I was little.

Obi-Wan Kenobi: Dreams pass in time.

Anakin Skywalker: I'd rather dream of Padmé. Just being around her again is... intoxicating.

Obi-Wan Kenobi: Be mindful of your thoughts, Anakin, they betray you. You've made a commitment to the Jedi Order... a commitment not easily broken... and don't forget she's a politician. They're not to be trusted.

[the probe droid cuts a hole into Padme's window. R2 awakens, but when he sees no alarm, he shuts off]

Anakin Skywalker: She's not like the others in the Senate, Master.

Obi-Wan Kenobi: It's been my experience that Senators are only focused on pleasing those who fund their campaigns... and they are more than willing to forget the niceties of democracy to get those funds.

Anakin Skywalker: Not another lecture, Master. Not on the economics of politics...

[They return to the main room]

Anakin Skywalker: ... and besides, you're generalizing. The Chancellor doesn't appear to be corrupt.

Obi-Wan Kenobi: Palpatine's a politician. I've observed that he is very clever at following the passions and prejudices of the Senators.

[R2 sounds an alarm as the poisonous Kohuns get within inches of Padme's face]

Anakin Skywalker: I think he is a good man. My instincts are very positive about...

[He stops]

Obi-Wan Kenobi: I sense it, too.

[They move and quickly kill the Kohuns]


[Anakin visits Watto's place on Tatooine. The following dialogue between Anakin and Watto is in Huttese]

Anakin Skywalker: Chut, chut, Watto.

[Excuse me, Watto]

Watto: Ke Booda?


Watto: Di nova, "Chut, chut."

[I said, "Excuse me."]

Watto: [turns to his pit droids] Go ana bopa!

[Translation: "Shut Down". The pit droids obey]

Anakin Skywalker: Ding mi chasa hopa.

[Translation: "Let me help you with that". Anakin starts to fidget with a piece of equipment]

Watto: Ke booda? Yo baan pee hota. No wega mi condorta. Kin chasa du Jedi. No bata tu tu.

[What? I don't know you... What can I do for you? You look like a Jedi. Whatever it is... I didn't do it]

Anakin Skywalker: Mi boska di Shmi Skywalker.

[I'm looking for Shmi Skywalker]

Anakin Skywalker: [Watto eyes Anakin, and then Padme and starts speaking English]

Watto: Annie? Little Annie? Naaah!

[the piece of equipment Anakin has been tinkering with comes to life]

Watto: You are Annie! It is you! Ya sure sprouted! Weehoo! A Jedi! Waddya know? Hey, maybe you couldda help wit some deadbeats who owe me a lot of money...

Anakin Skywalker: My mother...

Watto: Oh, yeah. Shmi... she's not mine no more. I sold her.

Anakin Skywalker: Sold her?

Watto: Years ago. Sorry, Annie, but you know, business is business. Sold her to a moisture farmer named Lars. Least I think it was Lars. Believe it or not, I heard he freed her and married her. Can ya beat that?

Anakin Skywalker: Do you know where they are?

Watto: Long way from here... someplace over on the other side of Mos Eisley, I think...

Anakin Skywalker: I'd like to know.

Watto: Yeah... sure... absolutely. Let's go look in my records.


Anakin Skywalker: [as he and Obi-Wan come running to Count Dooku] You're gonna pay for all the Jedi that you killed today, Dooku.

Obi-Wan: We'll take him together.

Anakin Skywalker: You go slowly while I take him now!

[runs toward Dooku]

Obi-Wan: No! Anakin, no! No!

[Dooku electrifies Anakin with his hands]

Count Dooku: [to Obi-Wan] as you see, my Jedi powers are far beyond yours. Now, back up.

[tries to electrify Obi-Wan, who blocks the electricity with his lightsaber]

Obi-Wan: I don't think so.

[Dooku ignites lightsaber and fights]

Count Dooku: Master Kenobi, you disappoint me. Yoda holds you in such high steam.

[fights more]

Count Dooku: Surely you can do better!


Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith (2005)

Supreme Chancellor: I hope you trust me, Anakin.

Anakin Skywalker: Of course.

Supreme Chancellor: I need your help, son. I want you to be the eyes, ears, and voice of the Republic. Anakin, I'm appointing you to be my personal representative on the Jedi Council.

Anakin Skywalker: Me? A Master? I'm overwhelmed, sir. But the Council elects its own members. They will never accept this.

Supreme Chancellor: I think they will. They need you, more than you know.


Anakin Skywalker: We got 'em, R2.

[R2D2 beeps]


Anakin Skywalker: I missed you, Padmé.


Anakin Skywalker: Obi-Wan, may the force be with you.

Obi-Wan Kenobi: Goodbye old friend. May the force be with you.


Supreme Chancellor: I know what's been troubling you. Listen to me. Don't continue to a be a pawn of the Jedi Council! Ever since I've known you, you have been seeking a life of great significance, far more than any Jedi.

[turns his back on Anakin]

Supreme Chancellor: Are you going to kill me?

Anakin Skywalker: I would certainly like to!

Supreme Chancellor: I know you would. I can feel your anger. It give you focus... makes you stronger.


Anakin Skywalker: I'm going to turn you over to the Jedi.

Supreme Chancellor: Of course you should. But you can't be sure of their intentions.

Anakin Skywalker: I will learn the truth of all this quickly.

Supreme Chancellor: You have much wisdom, Anakin. But if I were to die, all the knowledge you seek about the true nature of the Force will be lost with me. Learn the power of the Dark Side, Anakin. The power to save Padmé.


Anakin Skywalker: I'm going there to end this war. Wait for me until I return. Thing's will be different, I promise. Please wait for me.


Supreme Chancellor: Be careful of the Jedi, Anakin. Only through me can you achieve a power greater than any Jedi. Learn to use the Dark Side of the Force and you will be able to save your wife from certain death.

Anakin Skywalker: What did you say? How do you know that...?

Supreme Chancellor: Use my knowledge, I beg you.

Anakin Skywalker: [igniting his lightsaber] You're the Sith Lord!


Anakin Skywalker: Master Windu, I must speak with you.

Mace Windu: Not now, Skywalker. We have just received word that Obi-Wan has destroyed General Grievous. We're on our way to make sure the Chancellor returns emergency powers back to the Senate.

Anakin Skywalker: He won't give up his power. I just learned the terrible truth. I think Chancellor Palpatine is a Sith Lord.

Mace Windu: [suprised] A Sith Lord?

Anakin Skywalker: Yes, the one we've been looking for.

Mace Windu: How do you know this?

Anakin Skywalker: He knows the ways of the Force. He's been trained to use the Dark Side.

Mace Windu: Are you sure?

Anakin Skywalker: Absolutely.

Mace Windu: Then our worst fears have been realized. We must move quickly if the Jedi Order is to survive.


Senator Amidala: I'm not going to die in childbirth, Anakin. I promise you.

Anakin Skywalker: No, I promise you.


Anakin Skywalker: I feel lost.

Padmé: Lost?

Anakin Skywalker: Obi-Wan and the Council don't trust me.

Padmé: They trust you with their lives.

Anakin Skywalker: Something's happening. I'm not the Jedi I should be. I want more. And I know I shouldn't.


Supreme Chancellor: [Anakin cuts off Dooku's hands ending the battle. Anakin catches Dooku's lightsabre and ignites it and puts both lightsabres to his neck] Good, Anakin, good. Kill him.

[Dooku looks at Palpatine in shock]

Supreme Chancellor: Kill him now.

Anakin Skywalker: I shouldn't...

Supreme Chancellor: Do it!

Anakin Skywalker: [Anakin decapitates Dooku] I couldn't stop myself.

Supreme Chancellor: You did well, Anakin. He was too dangerous to be kept alive.

Anakin Skywalker: Yes, but he was an unarmed prisoner.

[frees Chancellor Palpatine]

Anakin Skywalker: I shouldn't have done that. It's not the Jedi way.

Supreme Chancellor: [stands up, rubbing his wrists] It is only natural. He cut off your arm, and you wanted revenge. It wasn't the first time, Anakin. Remember what you told me about your mother and the Sand People.

[sound of sand people screaming in as if Anakin can still hear their death]

Supreme Chancellor: Now, we must leave before more security droids arrive.


[a large part of Greivous's ship breaks away]

R2-D2: [beeps] Uh-oh.

Anakin Skywalker: We lost something.

Obi-Wan: Not to worry. We're still flying half a ship.


Anakin Skywalker: Ray shields.

Obi-Wan: Wait a minute. How did this happen? We're smarter than this.

Anakin Skywalker: Apparently not. I say patience.

Obi-Wan: Patience?

Anakin Skywalker: Yes. R2 will be along in a few moments and then... he'll release us from the ray shields.

[R2 comes skidding across the hallway and bashes into the opposite wall]

Anakin Skywalker: See? No problem.


Anakin Skywalker: [Through a hologram projector] The Separatists have been taken care of, my master.

The Emperor: It is finished then. You have restored peace and justice to the galaxy.


Anakin Skywalker: Are you all right? You're trembling. What's going on?

Padmé: Something wonderful has happened. Ani, I'm pregnant.


Anakin Skywalker: [during the Opening Space Battle] This is where the fun begins.


Supreme Chancellor: Remember back to your early teachings. "All who gain power are afraid to lose it." Even the Jedi.

Anakin Skywalker: The Jedi use their power for good.

Supreme Chancellor: Good is a point of view, Anakin. The Sith and the Jedi are similar in almost every way, including their quest for greater power.

Anakin Skywalker: The Sith rely on their passion for their strength. They think inward, only about themselves.

Supreme Chancellor: And the Jedi don't?

Anakin Skywalker: The Jedi are selfless... they only care about others.

Supreme Chancellor: [looking a little frustrated] Did you ever hear the tragedy of Darth Plagueis "the wise"?

Anakin Skywalker: No.

Supreme Chancellor: I thought not. It's not a story the Jedi would tell you. It's a Sith legend. Darth Plagueis was a Dark Lord of the Sith who lived many years ago. He was so powerful and so wise that he could use the Force to influence the midichlorians to create life... He had such a knowledge of the dark side that he could even keep the ones he cared about from dying.

Anakin Skywalker: He could do that? He could actually save people from death?

Supreme Chancellor: The dark side of the Force is a pathway to many abilities some consider to be unnatural.

Anakin Skywalker: What happened to him?

Supreme Chancellor: He became so powerful... the only thing he was afraid of was losing his power, which eventually, of course, he did. Unfortunately, he taught his apprentice everything he knew, and then one night, his apprentice killed him in his sleep. It's ironic that he could save others from death, but not himself.

Anakin Skywalker: Is it possible to learn this power?

Supreme Chancellor: Not from a Jedi.


Yoda: Allow this appointment lightly, the council does not. Disturbing is this move by Chancellor Palpatine.

Anakin Skywalker: I understand.

Mace Windu: You are on the council, but we do not grant you the rank of master.

Anakin Skywalker: What? How can you do this? This is outrageous, it's unfair.

Mace Windu: Take a seat, young Skywalker.

Anakin Skywalker: Forgive me master.


Anakin Skywalker: [referring to Obi-Wan] You brought him here to kill me!


Obi-Wan Kenobi: You have allowed this dark lord to twist your mind, until now, until now you've become the very thing you swore to destroy.

Anakin Skywalker: Don't lecture me, Obi-Wan! I see through the lies of the Jedi. I do not fear the dark side as you do. I have brought peace, freedom, justice, and security to my new Empire.

Obi-Wan Kenobi: Your new Empire?

Anakin Skywalker: Don't make me kill you.

Obi-Wan Kenobi: Anakin, my allegiance is to the Republic, to democracy.

Anakin Skywalker: If you're not with me, then you're my enemy.

Obi-Wan Kenobi: [realizing that Anakin is consumed by evil and there's no reasoning with him anymore] Only a Sith deals in absolutes.

[draws his lightsaber]

Obi-Wan Kenobi: I will do what I must.

Anakin Skywalker: You will try.

[draws his lightsaber and confronts Obi-Wan]


Anakin Skywalker: You turned her against me!

Obi-Wan Kenobi: You have done that yourself.

Anakin Skywalker: You will not take her from me!

Obi-Wan Kenobi: Your anger and lust for power have already done that.


[R2-D2 tries repeatedly to control an elevator that Anakin and Obi-Wan are in while avoiding battle droids at the same time]

Anakin Skywalker: What was that all about?

Obi-Wan: Well, R2 has been...

Anakin Skywalker: No loose wire jokes.

Obi-Wan: Did I say anything?

Anakin Skywalker: He's trying.

Obi-Wan: I didn't say anything.


[Obi-Wan regains consciousness while hanging precariously inside an elevator shaft underneath Anakin]

Anakin Skywalker: Easy! We're in a bit of a situation.

Obi-Wan Kenobi: Did I miss something?


[Obi-Wan Kenobi and Yoda are escaping the Jedi temple as Obi-Wan noticed the hologram center]

Obi-Wan: Wait, Master. There is something I must know.

Yoda: If into the security recordings you go, only pain will you find.

Obi-Wan: I must know the truth, Master.

[Obi-Wan watches the recordings of Jedi, even younglings, being slaughtered]

Obi-Wan: It can't be... It can't be...

Anakin Skywalker: The traitors have been taken care of, Lord Sidious.

Darth Sidious: Good... Good... you have done well, my apprentice. Now Lord Vader, go and bring peace to the Empire.

Obi-Wan: [switches off the hologram] I can't watch any more.

Yoda: Destroy the Sith we must.


Yoda: Premonitions, premonitions. These visions you have...

Anakin Skywalker: They are of pain, suffering. Death.

Yoda: Yourself you speak of, or someone you know?

Anakin Skywalker: Someone.

Yoda: Close to you?

Anakin Skywalker: Yes.

Yoda: Careful you must be when sensing the future Anakin. The fear of loss is a path to the dark side.

Anakin Skywalker: I won't let these visions come true, Master Yoda.

Yoda: Death is a natural part of life. Rejoice for those around you who transform into the Force. Mourn them do not. Miss them do not. Attachment leads to jealousy. The shadow of greed that is.

Anakin Skywalker: What must I do, Master Yoda?

Yoda: Train yourself to let go... of everything you fear to lose.


[Anakin has been appointed onto the council, but denied mastership]

Anakin Skywalker: I swear to you... I didn't ask to be put on the council.

Obi-Wan Kenobi: But it's what you wanted. Your friendship with Chancellor Palpatine seems to have paid off. Anakin, I am on your side. I did not want to put you in this situation

Anakin Skywalker: What situation?

Obi-Wan Kenobi: The Council wants you to report on all the Chancellor's dealings.

Anakin Skywalker: They want me to spy on the Chancellor? But that is treason!

Obi-Wan Kenobi: We are at war, Anakin.


Anakin Skywalker: Love won't save you, Padme. Only my new powers can do that.


Anakin Skywalker: [after killing Mace Windu and in disarray] What have I done?

Darth Sidious: You are fulfilling your destiny, Anakin. Become my apprentice. Learn to use the dark side of the Force. There's no turning back now.

Anakin Skywalker: I will do whatever you ask. Just help me save Padme's life. I can't live without her. If she dies, I don't know what I will do.

Darth Sidious: To cheat death is a power only one has achieved through centuries of the study of the Force. But if we work together, I know we can discover the secret to eternal life

Anakin Skywalker: I pledge myself to your teachings. To the ways of the Sith.

Darth Sidious: Good. Good! The Force is strong with you, Anakin Skywalker. A powerful Sith you will become. Henceforth, you shall be known as Darth... Vader.

Anakin Skywalker: Thank you... my Master.

Darth Sidious: Lord Vader... rise.


Anakin Skywalker: I sense Count Dooku.

Obi-Wan Kenobi: I sense a trap.

Anakin Skywalker: Next move?

Obi-Wan Kenobi: [smiling] Spring the trap.


Anakin Skywalker: You are so... beautiful.

Padmé: It's only because I'm so in love.

Anakin Skywalker: No, it's because I'm so in love with you.

Padmé: So love has blinded you?

Anakin Skywalker: [laughs] Well, that's not exactly what I meant.

Padmé: But it's probably true.


Obi-Wan: [General Grievous' ship is about to crash land] Can you fly a cruiser like this?

Anakin Skywalker: You mean, do I know how to land what's left of this thing?


General Grievous: Anakin Skywalker. I expected someone with your reputation to be a little... older.

Anakin Skywalker: General Grievous... you're shorter than I expected.

General Grievous: Jedi scum!

Obi-Wan Kenobi: We have a job to do, Anakin. Try not to upset him.


Obi-Wan: You were the chosen one! It was said that you would destroy the Sith, not join them! Bring balance to the force... not leave it in darkness!

Anakin Skywalker: [shouts] I HATE YOU!

Obi-Wan: You were my brother, Anakin! I loved you!


Obi-Wan: I have failed you, Anakin. I have failed you.

Anakin Skywalker: I should have known the Jedi were plotting to take over!

Obi-Wan: Anakin, Chancellor Palpatine is evil!

Anakin Skywalker: From my point of view, the Jedi are evil!

Obi-Wan: Well, then you are lost!

Anakin Skywalker: [raises his lightsaber] This is the end for you, my master.


[first lines]

[R2-D2 bleeps]

Anakin Skywalker: Lock on to him R2.

[R2-D2 responds with more bleeping]

Anakin Skywalker: Master, General Grievous's ship is directly ahead. The one crawling with Vulture droids.

Obi-Wan: Oh, I see it. Oh, this is going to be easy.


Obi-Wan: Anakin, let's be fair. Today you were the hero and you deserve your glorious day with the politicians.

Anakin Skywalker: All right. But you owe me one, and for not saving your skin for the tenth time.

Obi-Wan: *Ninth* time. That business on Cato Neimodia doesn't- doesn't count.


Anakin Skywalker: You're going to need me on this one, Master.

Obi-Wan Kenobi: Oh, I agree. Though it could turn out to just be a wild bantha chase.


Obi-Wan: It's over Anakin, I have the high ground.

Anakin Skywalker: You underestimate my power!

Obi-Wan: Don't try it.


Mace Windu: [has Palpatine subdued] I'm going to put an end to this, once and for all!

Anakin Skywalker: You can't. He must stand trial.

Mace Windu: He has control of the senate and all the courts. He is too dangerous to be left alive!

Supreme Chancellor: [exhausted and disfigured] But, I'm too weak. Don't kill me.

Anakin Skywalker: That's not the Jedi way. He must live.

[Windu ignores Anakin, still intending to kill Palpatine]

Anakin Skywalker: I need him!

[Windu raises his lightsaber]

Anakin Skywalker: NO!

Supreme Chancellor: [Anakin draws his own lightsaber, cutting off Windu's arm, then Palpatine electricutes Windu] Power, unlimited power!


Anakin Skywalker: My powers have doubled since the last time we met, Count.

Count Dooku: Good. Twice the pride, double the fall.


Padmé: Anakin, I was so worried about you! Obi-Wan... told me terrible things!

Anakin Skywalker: What things?

Padmé: He said... you turned to the Dark Side. That you... killed Younglings!

Anakin Skywalker: Obi-Wan is trying to turn you against me.

Padmé: He cares about us.

Anakin Skywalker: Us?

Padmé: He knows. He wants to help you. Anakin, all I want is your love.

Anakin Skywalker: Love won't save you, Padme. Only my new powers can do that!

Padmé: But at what cost? You're a good person, don't do this!

Anakin Skywalker: I won't lose you the way I lost my mother. I am becoming more powerful than any Jedi has ever dreamed of, and I'm doing it for you. To protect you.

Padmé: Come away with me. Help me raise our child far away. Leave everything else behind while we still can!

Anakin Skywalker: No. Don't you see? We don't have to run away anymore! We no longer have to hide our love for each other. I am more powerful than the Chancellor, I... I can overthrow him! And together, you and I can rule the galaxy! We can make things the way we want them to be!

Padmé: I don't believe what I'm hearing! Obi-Wan was right... you've changed! You have turned to the dark side! You're not Anakin anymore!

Anakin Skywalker: [with a growing angry look and voice] I don't want to hear any more about Obi-Wan. The Jedi turned against me. Don't you turn against me!

Padmé: [crying] Anakin, you're breaking my heart! You're going down a path I cannot follow!

Anakin Skywalker: Because of Obi-Wan?

Padmé: Because of what you've done... what you plan to do! Stop! Stop now... come back... I love you!

[Anakin looks beside Padme and sees Obi-Wan standing at the ship's exit overhearing them]

Anakin Skywalker: [enraged and paranoid] Liar! You're with him! You brought him here to kill me!


Anakin Skywalker: From my point of view the Jedi are evil.

Obi-Wan Kenobi: Then you are lost!


Obi-Wan Kenobi: Roger...

Anakin Skywalker: Roger.

[they both laugh]


Obi-Wan Kenobi: [as he and Anakin walk into a room and find Chancellor Palpatine in a chair] Chancellor.


Anakin Skywalker: You all right?

Supreme Chancellor: Count Dooku.

[Anakin and Obi-Wan turn around to and see Count Dooku with two Super Battle Droids]

Obi-Wan Kenobi: This time we'll do it together.

Anakin Skywalker: I was about to say that.

Supreme Chancellor: You can't be any match for him, he's a Sith Lord.

Obi-Wan Kenobi: Chancellor Palpatine, Sith Lords are our specialty.

[he and Anakin take off robes]

Count Dooku: Your swords, please. You don't want to make a mess of things in front of the Chancellor.

Obi-Wan Kenobi: You won't get away this time, Dooku.

[he, Anakin, and Dooku ignite lightsabers and fight]

Count Dooku: I've been looking forward to this.

Anakin Skywalker: My powers are double since the last time we met, Count.

Count Dooku: Good. Twice the pride, double the fall.

[fights more]

Supreme Chancellor: [as Obi-Wan falls and gets back up, running toward Dooku] Get him!

[Dooku chokes Obi-Wan and throws him down the stairs]


Darth Sidious: [Vader's new mechanical body arises from the steam] Lord Vader... can you hear me?

Darth Vader: Yes, Master.

Darth Vader: [Vader looks at Sidious] Where is Padme? Is she safe? Is she all right?

Darth Sidious: It seems in your anger, you killed her.

Darth Vader: I...? I couldn't have! She was alive... I felt it!

[Vader growls, and his Dark Side strength crushes everything around him in the room. He frees himself from the metal stretcher, and steps off. Palpatine has a smirk on his face]

Darth Vader: Nooooooooooooooooooo!
