Padmé: [crying] Anakin, you're breaking my heart! And 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!

Padmé: I don't believe what I'm hearing... Obi-Wan was right... you've changed!
Anakin Skywalker: I don't want to hear any more about Obi-Wan. The Jedi turned against me; don't you turn against me!

Padmé: Anakin, all I want is your love.
Anakin Skywalker: Love won't save you, Padme! Only my new powers can do that!
Padmé: 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; leave everything else behind while we still can!
Anakin Skywalker: Don't you see? We don't have to run away anymore! I am more powerful than the Chancellor, I ... I can overthrow him! And together, you and I can rule the galaxy! Make things the way we want them to be!

Padmé: 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 Skywalker: [smirks]

Senator Amidala: I'm not going to die in childbirth, Anakin. I promise you.
Anakin Skywalker: No, I promise you.

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: 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.

Anakin Skywalker: Master Windu, I must talk to you.
Mace Windu: 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.

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.

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.

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.
Owen Lars: Where are you going?
Anakin: To find my mother.
Cliegg Lars: Your mother's dead, son. Accept it.

Anakin: Mem boshka de Shmi Skywalker.
Watto: Annie? Little Annie? It is you!

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!
Anakin: I CAN'T LEAVE HER!
Obi-Wan: COME TO YOUR SENSES! What do you think Padme would do were she in your position?
