Qui-Gon's defiance I sense in you. Need that, you do not!

Yoda

Qui-Gon Jinn: I don't presume...
Yoda: But you do! Revealed, your opinion is.

Queen Amidala: Although we do not always agree, Your Honor, our two great societies have always lived in peace. The Trade Federation has destroyed all that we have worked so hard to build. If we do not act quickly, all will be lost forever. I ask you to help us... no, I beg you to help us. We are your humble servants. Our fate is in your hands.
Boss Nass: Hmmmmm. Yousa no tinken yousa greater den da Gungans? Mesa like dis. Maybe wesa... bein' friends.

It is clear to me now that the Republic no longer functions.

Queen Amidala

Qui-Gon Jinn: [after being struck down by Darth Maul] Uhh, it's too late, it...
Obi-Wan: No!
Qui-Gon Jinn: Obi-Wan, promise... Promise me you will train the boy.
Obi-Wan: Yes, master.
Qui-Gon Jinn: [wipes tear from Obi-Wan's face] He is the chosen one. He will bring balance. Train him.

Shmi Skywalker: Can you help him?
Qui-Gon Jinn: I don't know. I didn't actually come here to free slaves.

Captain Tarpals: Hey, you-sa! Stop-pa dere!
Jar-Jar Binks: Hey yo, Daddy, Captain Tarpals. Mesa back.
Captain Tarpals: No-ah 'gain, Jar Jar. You-sa goin' to da Bosses. You-sa in big doo-doo dis time!

Rune Haako: You didn't tell him about the missing Jedi.
Nute Gunray: No need to report that to him until we have something to report!

Nute Gunray: And the Jedi?
Darth Sidious: The Chancellor should never have brought them into this. Kill them immediately.

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

Darth Sideous: And Queen Amidala, has she signed the treaty?
Nute Gunray: She has... disappeared, my lord. One Naboo cruiser got past the blockade.
Darth Sideous: I want that treaty signed!
Nute Gunray: M-my lord, it... it's impossible to locate the ship. It's out of our range.
Darth Sideous: Not for a Sith. This is my apprentice, Darth Maul. He will find your lost ship.
[disappears]
Nute Gunray: This is getting out of hand! Now, there are *two* of them!

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!

Star Wars: The Phantom Menace Quotes

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.

I was not elected to watch my people suffer and die while you discuss this invasion in a committee!
