Anakin Skywalker: Good job protecting the prince.
Ahsoka Tano: It's all part of the plan, Master.
Anakin Skywalker: I was hoping you were going to say that. Anything I can do?
Ahsoka Tano: Unfortunately, this time it's out of our hands.
Anakin Skywalker: I'm not sure I like this plan after all.
Padmé Amidala: There's a lot of enemy troops between us and the surface.
Anakin Skywalker: It's no problem. I just hope you're a fast swimmer.
Padmé Amidala: Says the boy from the desert planet.
(Anakin looses a helmet under water and can't breathe...)
Ahsoka Tano: You called for backup? (brings him his helmet)
Anakin Skywalker: I had... it... under control, Snips.
Ahsoka Tano: Hah! I knew you'd say that.
Master Plo Koon: What is Ahsoka's strength?
Anakin Skywalker: She is fearless.
Master Plo Koon: That can also be a weakness. Is she a worthy apprentice?
Anakin Skywalker: No one has her kind of determination.
Master Plo Koon: Except you.
Anakin Skywalker: I'll find her.
Master Plo Koon: This may not be within your power.
Anakin Skywalker: Whatever you're trying to say master Plo, just say it!
Master Plo Koon: I am suggesting, that perhaps, if you have trained her well, she shall take care of herself. And find a way back, to you.
(After Ahsoka's been missing for hours...)
Anakin Skywalker: I'm not abandoning her.
Master Plo Koon: Your emotions are clouding your judgment.
Anakin Skywalker: I will not leave her fate up to others.
Captain Tarkin: A job well done, general Skywalker. I wish more Jedi had your military sensibilities. Perhaps I can inform the chancellor of your valor.
Obi-Wan Kenobi: I'm not sure what to think of your new ally.
Anakin Skywalker: I think we need people like him. This is a war. If we aren't willing to do what it takes to win, we risk losing everything we try to protect.
Obi-Wan Kenobi: Unfortunately, war tends to distort our point of view. If we sacrifice our code, even for victory, we may lose that which is most important, our honor.
Anakin Skywalker: You know it's not wise to argue with master Piell. It's certainly not a good career move.
Captain Tarkin: General Skywalker, I stand by my principles, no matter what. Besides, I needn't worry about my career. I've fallen into favor with the chancellor. He shall support me.
Anakin Skywalker: Oh. I happen to know the chancellor quite well, myself.
Captain Tarkin: Oh. Really?
Anakin Skywalker: Really.
Anakin Skywalker: Captain Tarkin feels the Jedi should be relieved from the burden of leading the war effort.
Ahsoka Tano: That's ridiculous.
Anakin Skywalker: Maybe, but we aren't soldiers. We're peacekeepers. The Jedi code often prevents us from going far enough to achieve victory.
Obi-Wan Kenobi: A rather simple point of view.
Anakin Skywalker: Either way, he is a good captain.
Anakin Skywalker: Captain Tarkin, haven't you learned to trust me by now?
Captain Tarkin: You may have learned my trust, general Skywalker, but my faith in your comrades is still lacking.
Anakin Skywalker: You lack faith in the Jedi.
Captain Tarkin: I find their tactics ineffective. The Jedi code prevents them from going far enough to achieve victory, to do whatever it takes to win, the very reason why peacekeepers should not be leading a war. Have I offended you?
Anakin Skywalker: No. I've also found that we sometimes fall short of victory because of our methods.
Captain Tarkin: I see we agree on something.
Anakin Skywalker: Looks like Obi-Wan's distraction worked. Things seem to be going as planned.
Captain Tarkin: It's when things do not go as planned that concerns me. What then?
Anakin Skywalker: It's when things don't go as planned that we Jedi are at our best. Trust me.
Captain Tarkin: I reserve my trust for those who take action, general Skywalker.
Anakin Skywalker: Then let me remind you... We rescued you back there and I reserve my trust for those who understand gratitude, Captain Tarkin.
