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.

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

Queen Amidala

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.

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

I don't care what universe you're from, that's got to hurt.

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

Yoda

Governor Sio Bibble: A communications disruption could mean only one thing: invasion.

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!
