Supreme Chancellor: 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, so powerful and so wise 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 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, then his apprentice killed him in his sleep. It's ironic he could save others from death, but not himself.

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.

Anakin Skywalker: Are you all right? You're trembling. What's going on?
Padmé: Something wonderful has happened. Ani, I'm pregnant.

Anakin Skywalker: The Separatists have been taken care of, my master.
The Emperor: It is finished then. You have restored peace and justice to the galaxy.

I sense great fear in you, Skywalker. You have hate. You have anger. But you don't use them.

Count Dooku

Yoda: If so powerful you are... why leave?
Darth Sidious: You will not stop me! Darth Vader will become more powerful than either of us!
Yoda: Faith in your new apprentice, misplaced may be. As is your faith in the dark side of the Force.

At an end your rule is, and not short enough was it.

Yoda

Darth Sidious: I have waited a long time for this moment, my little green friend. At last, the Jedi are no more.
Yoda: Not if anything to say about it I have.

R2-D2: [beeps] Uh-oh.
Anakin Skywalker: We lost something.
Obi-Wan: Not to worry. We're still flying half a ship.

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

Anakin Skywalker: I couldn't stop myself.
Supreme Chancellor Palpatine: You did well, Anakin. He was too dangerous to be kept alive.
Anakin Skywalker: Yes, but he was an unarmed prisoner.

Count Dooku: Your swords, please. We 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.
Count Dooku: I've been looking forward to this.
Anakin Skywalker: My powers have doubled since the last time we met, Count.
Count Dooku: Good. Twice the pride, double the fall.
