Anakin Skywalker: The citadel wasn't designed to hold common criminals. It was created to hold Jedi if any of us lost our way. It's not a place for padawans.
Ahsoka Tano: You're just being protective again. That's not fair. How am I supposed to learn if you won't let me share the risk?
Anakin Skywalker: This isn't a mission for learning. You either do or die. And that's not a risk I'm willing to share.
Anakin Skywalker: I'm sorry your talks with Bonteri failed.
Ahsoka Tano: How did you know?
Anakin Skywalker: We have eyes and ears everywhere, Ahsoka. That was dangerous and careless, going to Raxus, not to mention illegal. You went too far this time.
Ahsoka Tano: You would do the same. You do the same all the time.
Anakin Skywalker: This was too much.
Ahsoka Tano: Maybe so. But I did realize something. The politics of this war, are not as black and white as I once thought they were.
Padmé Amidala: You just gave me an idea. You're a Jedi, which gives you special clearance.
Ahsoka Tano: Right.
Padmé Amidala: And Jedi are allowed to travel to neutral worlds like Mandalore, where we could then board a cargo ship to a Separatist system.
Ahsoka Tano: Are you suggesting I use my status as a Jedi, to smuggle you behind enemy lines?
Padmé Amidala: It's just that you could get us through to meet with her, and I haven't seen her or her family, in so long.
Ahsoka Tano: Relax, I'll help you.
Ahsoka Tano: Truthfully, I don't understand any of it. I know the Separatists are evil, but all anyone argued about was banking deregulation, interest rates and, well, almost nothing about why we're fighting in the first place.
Anakin Skywalker: War's complicated, Ahsoka, but let me simplify it. The Separatists believe the Republic is corrupt, but they're wrong, and we have to restore order.
Padmé Amidala: Maybe talking to the Jedi council isn't the role for you, after all. Thanks for your help. Come on, Ahsoka.
Anakin Skywalker: Hey!
Padmé Amidala: You told me to teach her about politics. So I'm going to.
Ahsoka Tano: Master, let me come with you. If I'm not with you, who else will have your back?
Anakin Skywalker: Stay here, finish your studies, get some rest.
Ahsoka Tano: You've said it yourself. I learn more in the field than I ever do here.
Anakin Skywalker: Well, think of this as a chance to prove me wrong. And stay out of trouble.
