Anakin Skywalker: Calm down, Ahsoka. Remember, revenge is not the Jedi way.
Barriss Offee: The evidence seems clear, Ahsoka. Nothing will ever change.
Admiral Tarkin: The Chancellor feels very strongly that the Jedi be removed from as many military matters as possible. You yourselves said that you're peacekeepers, not soldiers.
Ahsoka Tano: I hope Chancellor Palpatine knows what he's doing.
Admiral Tarkin: I assure you that he rarely does anything without a strategy.
Governor Tarkin: I believe I owe you an apology, Director Krennic. Your work exceeds all expectations.
Director Krennic: And you'll tell the Emperor as much?
Governor Tarkin: I will tell him that his patience with your misadventures... has been rewarded with a weapon that will bring a swift end to the Rebellion.
Director Krennic: And that that was only an inkling of its destructive potential.
Governor Tarkin: I will tell him that I will be taking control over the weapon... I first spoke of years ago effective immediately.
Director Krennic: We stand here amidst my achievement! Not yours!
Governor Tarkin: I'm afraid the recent security breaches... have laid bare your inadequacies as a military director.
Admiral Tarkin: Emperor Palpatine's priorities have changed. With the war at an end, the need for future clones is being questioned.
Lama Su: Our contracts stipulate the continued production.
Admiral Tarkin: Your contracts were with the Republic, which no longer exists.
Lama Su: Surely you realize the precarious state this newly formed Empire is in. Clone troopers will be needed to maintain order throughout the galaxy.
Admiral Tarkin: Indeed. A service conscription soldiers could provide at half the cost.
Lama Su: The skill level and efficiency of our clones is far superior to that of any recruited body.
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, 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.
