Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace (1999)
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.

Queen Amidala: You're a slave?
Anakin: I'm a person and my name is Anakin.

Queen Amidala: I will not condone a course of action that will lead us to war.

Queen Amidala: I was not elected to watch my people suffer and die while you discuss this invasion in a committee!

Queen Amidala: Our people are dying, Senator. We must do something quickly to stop the Federation.
Senator Palpatine: To be realistic, your Majesty. I think we are going to have to accept Federation control for the time being.
Queen Amidala: That is something I cannot do.

Queen Amidala: How did you end up here with us?
Jar Jar Binks: I don't know. Mesa day startin pretty okee-day with a brisky morning munchy, then BOOM! Gettin very scared and grabbin that Jedi and POW! Mesa here! Mesa gettin' very very scared!

Queen Amidala: The Federation has gone too far this time.

Qui-Gon Jinn: Your Highness, under the circumstances, I suggest you come to Coruscant with us.
Queen Amidala: Thank you, Ambassador. But my place is with my people.
Qui-Gon Jinn: They will kill you if you stay.

Queen Amidala: Senator, this is your arena. I feel I must return my mine. I have decided to go back to Naboo.
Senator Palpatine: Go back? But your Majesty, be realistic. They'll force you to sign the treaty.
Queen Amidala: I will sign no treaty, Senator. My fate will be no different to that of our people.

Queen Amidala: Get to your ships!

Queen Amidala: [speaking to Chancellor Palpatine] It is clear to me now that the Republic no longer functions. I pray you will bring sanity and compassion back to the Senate.

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.
[Amidala drops to her knees in front of the Gungan assembly]
Queen Amidala: We are your humble servants.
[One by one, everyone in Amidala's party gets on one knee in front of the Gungan assembly]
Queen Amidala: Our fate is in your hands.
Boss Nass: Hmmmmm.
[rubs his chin in thought]

Anakin: I don't know if I'll ever see her again, I wanted to say goodbye.
Queen Amidala: We will tell her for you. We are sure her heart goes with you.

Padmé: Are you sure about this? Trusting our fate to a boy we hardly know? The Queen will not approve.
Qui-Gon Jinn: The Queen does not need to know.
Padmé: Well, I don't approve.

Padmé: You assume too much.

Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith (2005)
Obi-Wan Kenobi: [referring to Anakin] When is the last time you saw him?
Padmé: Yesterday.
Obi-Wan Kenobi: Do you know where he is now?
Padmé: No.
Obi-Wan Kenobi: Padmé, I need your help. He is in grave danger.
Padmé: From the Sith?
Obi-Wan Kenobi: From himself. Padmé, Anakin has turned to the Dark Side.
Padmé: You're wrong! How could you even SAY that?
Obi-Wan Kenobi: I have seen a security hologram... of him... killing Younglings.
Padmé: No! Not Anakin! He couldn't...
Obi-Wan Kenobi: He was decieved by a lie... we all were. It appears that the Chancellor is behind everything, including the war! After the death of Count Dooku, Anakin became his new apprentice.
Padmé: I don't believe you. I can't...
Obi-Wan Kenobi: Padmé, I must find him.
Padmé: You're going to kill him, aren't you?
Obi-Wan Kenobi: He has become a very great threat.
Obi-Wan Kenobi: [He gets off of the couch, walking towards his ship] Anakin is the father, isn't he?
Obi-Wan Kenobi: [Padmé doesn't know what to say] I'm so sorry.

Anakin Skywalker: I feel lost.
Padmé: Lost?
Anakin Skywalker: Obi-Wan and the Council don't trust me.
Padmé: They trust you with their lives.
Anakin Skywalker: Something's happening. I'm not the Jedi I should be. I want more. And I know I shouldn't.

[Captain Typho is trying to talk Padme out of leaving Coruscant without protection]
Captain Typho: My Lady, let me come with you.
Padmé: There is no danger. The fighting is over, and... this is personal.
[Typho bows]
Captain Typho: As you wish, My Lady... but I strongly disagree.
Padmé: I'll be all right, Captain. This is something I must do myself. Besides, Threepio will look after me.
C-3PO: Oh, dear.
[Typho leaves; Padme and C-3PO board the Naboo skiff; Obi-Wan sneaks on board]

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

The Emperor: [to the Senate] In order to ensure our security and continuing stability, the Republic will be reorganized into the first Galactic Empire, for a safe and secure society which I assure you will last for ten thousand years.
[Senate fills with enormous applause]
Padmé: [to Bail Organa] So this is how liberty dies... with thunderous applause.

C-3PO: My lady, is there anything I might do?
Padmé: No, thank you, 3P0.
C-3PO: [walking away] I feel so helpless.

Padmé: Hold me, like you did by the lake on Naboo; so long ago when there was nothing but our love. No politics, no plotting, no war.

Anakin Skywalker: You are so... beautiful.
Padmé: It's only because I'm so in love.
Anakin Skywalker: No, it's because I'm so in love with you.
Padmé: So love has blinded you?
Anakin Skywalker: [laughs] Well, that's not exactly what I meant.
Padmé: But it's probably true.

Padmé: Obi-Wan... there... is good in him. I know there is... still...
[Padme dies]

Padmé: What if the democracy we thought we were serving no longer exists, and the Republic has become the very evil we have been fighting to destroy?

Padmé: Obi-Wan? Is Anakin all right?
[Obi-Wan looks at her sadly and does not answer. He brushes her hair back. Padme drops back into unconsciousness]

Padmé: Anakin, I was so worried about you! Obi-Wan... told me terrible things!
Anakin Skywalker: What things?
Padmé: He said... you turned to the Dark Side. That you... killed Younglings!
Anakin Skywalker: Obi-Wan is trying to turn you against me.
Padmé: He cares about us.
Anakin Skywalker: Us?
Padmé: He knows. He wants to help you. Anakin, all I want is your love.
Anakin Skywalker: Love won't save you, Padme. Only my new powers can do that!
Padmé: But at what cost? You're a good person, don't do this!
Anakin Skywalker: I won't lose you the way I lost my mother. I am becoming more powerful than any Jedi has ever dreamed of, and I'm doing it for you. To protect you.
Padmé: Come away with me. Help me raise our child far away. Leave everything else behind while we still can!
Anakin Skywalker: No. Don't you see? We don't have to run away anymore! We no longer have to hide our love for each other. I am more powerful than the Chancellor, I... I can overthrow him! And together, you and I can rule the galaxy! We can make things the way we want them to be!
Padmé: I don't believe what I'm hearing! Obi-Wan was right... you've changed! You have turned to the dark side! You're not Anakin anymore!
Anakin Skywalker: [with a growing angry look and voice] I don't want to hear any more about Obi-Wan. The Jedi turned against me. Don't you turn against me!
Padmé: [crying] Anakin, you're breaking my heart! You're going down a path I cannot follow!
Anakin Skywalker: Because of Obi-Wan?
Padmé: Because of what you've done... what you plan to do! Stop! Stop now... come back... I love you!
[Anakin looks beside Padme and sees Obi-Wan standing at the ship's exit overhearing them]
Anakin Skywalker: [enraged and paranoid] Liar! You're with him! You brought him here to kill me!

Padmé: So this is how liberty dies, with thunderous applause.

Padmé: This war represents a failure to listen. Now you're closer to the Chancellor than anyone! Please, ask him to end this war and let diplomacy resume.

"Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Pursuit of Peace (#3.11)" (2010)
Chancellor Palpatine: Members of the Senate, please, please...
Senator Aang: How dare they?
Zion Paulness: They attack, and now they want peace?
Padmé Amidala: Chancellor Palpatine, may I remind the senators that the peace proposal was made prior to their assault.
Senator Aang: That only highlights its insincerity.
Halle Burtoni: Chancellor Palpatine, in light of this unprovoked attack on Coruscant and the vulnerabilities it raises, I propose the Republic purchase an additional 5 million clone troopers.
Bail Organa: The Republic is already operating in deep debt. How do you propose we pay for these additional troops?
Halle Burtoni: My people are drafting an emergency appropriations bill that would raise funds...
Padmé Amidala: From the Banking Clan?
Halle Burtoni: Yes, of course. Do you have an alternate means of paying?
Padmé Amidala: One alternative might be to stop the war, not escalate it.
All Senators: Traitor! Traitor!
Padmé Amidala: Whoever attacked the power grid wants us to continue to fight. It's a calculated attempt to destroy the peace process. Not everyone in the Confederacy wants this. I know this for a fact.
Mee Deechi: You have Separatist friends, Senator?

Bail Organa: If your friend met with a violent end because of her politics, let's make sure her courageous effort wasn't in vain.
Padmé Amidala: What can we do?
Bail Organa: For one, defeat this bill.
Padmé Amidala: Can we really win this war with the troops that we have?
Bail Organa: Let's hope we don't have to. I'll start lining up support, but I'll need ammunition.
Onaconda Farr: We can't afford ammunition, remember? I joke.
Bail Organa: Go to the Banking Clan and see how much interest they're going to change for the loan. The more I know about the exact cost of this bill will be, the better I can make my case to defeat it.

Mak Plain: We will lend the Republic at our standard interest rate of... 25%.
Padmé Amidala: What?
Onaconda Farr: 25% - that's outright theft.
Padmé Amidala: Your previous arrangement with the Republic was 10%.
Mak Plain: Please, please, that was before deregulation. The same rules don't apply, my dear. The Separatists don't seem to mind a rate hike. In fact, they just secured a loan to fund an additional 3 million battle droids.
Onaconda Farr: They will wipe us out.
Padmé Amidala: You would let Dooku do that? You live on Coruscant too.
Mak Plain: We have no stake in this war, Senator. You know that. War is... distasteful to all of us.

Padmé Amidala: Can't you all see this bill is shortsighted l? Millions of clones won't win this war. The only winner will be the Banking Clan. They want to pass this bill so badly, they're using scare tactics to sway votes.

Padmé Amidala: As long as senators are being threatened and attacked, I'm afraid we don't stand a chance.
Bail Organa: Intimidation won't work on everyone. Senator Farr is proof of that.
Padmé Amidala: Even so, we're still at least six votes short of a majority, and you saw how effective my plea was today.
Bail Organa: Some minds can't be altered no matter what they hear.
Padmé Amidala: From my experience, it depends a great deal on who's sending the message.
Bail Organa: And what are you thinking?
Padmé Amidala: Bail, you're the finest public speaker I know. If anyone can convince the Senate that voting for this bill will bankrupt the Republic both financially and spiritually, it's you.
Bail Organa: It will be dangerous.
Padmé Amidala: I urge you to speak before the full Senate.
Bail Organa: I'll need some time to prepare.

Christo: What does ideology matter at this point? Is it worth being beaten to death? Look at what they did to you.
Onaconda Farr: These wounds will heal, but what about the millions who are dying in this war?
Christo: Who? The clones? We created them for just that purpose.
Padmé Amidala: They are people.
Christo: The people I care about are my constituents, the ones who put me in office.
Onaconda Farr: And when was the last time you ever spoke to your people?
Christo: Probably the same time you did... or you, Senator.
Padmé Amidala: Senator Christo, please, is there anything we can do to get you to change your mind?
Christo: [sighs] Where does Senator Organa stand on this? Why isn't he here?
Padmé Amidala: Senator Organa is preparing to speak before the full Senate.
Christo: Senator Organa? Hmm, I'll listen to what he has to say.
Padmé Amidala: So you are open to voting with us?
Christo: I said, "I'll listen to what he has to say."

Padmé Amidala: What has happened to democracy? And why doesn't anyone seem to care?
Teckla Minnau: Well, you do. Forgive me, my lady. Um, you're not like most politicians.
Padmé Amidala: If only that were enough, Teckla.
Teckla Minnau: Well, you actually talk to the people... people like me. Good night, my lady.
Padmé Amidala: Teckla, tell me, how is your family?
Teckla Minnau: They are fine.
Padmé Amidala: How is the war affecting them?
Teckla Minnau: Well, it hasn't been easy, and it's only getting worse.
Padmé Amidala: How? Please, tell me. Tell me how it's getting worse.

Onaconda Farr: You must give the speech in his place.
Padmé Amidala: But they're expecting to hear from the great Bail Organa. He carries a certain weight. He's seen as a voice of reason.
Onaconda Farr: You are very respected.
Padmé Amidala: As a partisan. I've been against this bill from day one. If they didn't listen to me before, why would they listen now?
Teckla Minnau: Because you do listen. You understand what the people are going through. Please... your people are waiting for you.

Padmé Amidala: Teckla Minnau. Teckla is one of my aides. Like so many of the people that we tell ourselves we're here to serve, Teckla lives in a district that rarely has electricity and running water as a result of the war. Her children can now only bathe every two weeks, and they have no light in which to read or study at night. The Republic has always funded these basic services, but now there are those who would divert the money to the war with no thought for what the people need to survive. If not for people like Teckla and her children, who are we fighting for? My people, your people, all of our people-this war is meant to save them from suffering, not increase it. I support our brave soldiers, whether they come from the clone factories or from any of the thousands of systems loyal to the Republic, but if we continue to impoverish our people, it is not on the battlefield where Dooku will defeat us, but in our own homes. Therefore, it is our duty and our responsibility to preserve the lives of those around us by defeating this bill.

"Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Corruption (#3.5)" (2010)
Padmé Amidala: There are times I wish I could follow Mandalore's lead. Neutrality. And not just in the war.
Satine Kryze: But the politics as well?

Padmé Amidala: I must say, when I came to visit I hadn't pictured us in such an... informal setting.
Satine Kryze: Yes, well, from what Master Kenobi tells me, during your tenure as Queen you became quite familliar with such 'excursions'.

Satine Kryze: Perhaps a Jedi, working undercover at the academy could be of service to us. And in more ways than one. For if we lose our young, Mandalore will indeed be lost.
Padmé Amidala: I will speak with Master Yoda. Don't lose hope, my friend.

Satine Kryze: Thank you for coming, Padmé. I know our decision to stay neutral has caused distress in the Senate. But for many here, the fallout from your war has been too much.
Padmé Amidala: If your government has trade concerns, we can talk. Many systems have been affected. I assure you not everyone in the Republic has neglected Mandalore, and there are those of us who would still vote to give you any help you require.
Satine Kryze: The help we need now is opening trade routes so we may get supplies more freely.
Padmé Amidala: We are making progress in the Senate.

Padmé Amidala: Prime Minister Almec seems a bit overwhelmed.
Satine Kryze: If you're volunteering your services as a negotiator, please, be my guest.
Padmé Amidala: Perhaps they will listen to a new voice.
[speaks to the Ruling Council]
Padmé Amidala: Ruling Council, may I speak?
Prime Minister Almec: Senator Amidala. The floor is yours.
Padmé Amidala: I hear your worries, your frustration, but the longer you argue, the more your people suffer. You are right. New trade routes are essential to survival, but the black market is no substitute for legitimate and legal trade.

Satine Kryze: Tell me, Padmé, how do you feel about the Republic's war with the Separatists?
Padmé Amidala: It's so complicated. As you know, in the Senate, the Chancellor says it's going very well, but my sources say otherwise.
Satine Kryze: And how does that make you feel?
Padmé Amidala: There are times I wish I could follow Mandalore's lead: neutrality, and not just in the war.
Satine Kryze: But the politics as well? The contamination of greed reaches deep and far within the Republic: corporations, trade guilds, too many senators serving their own interests.
Padmé Amidala: There are still those of us who work to overcome the corruption and believe it to be possible.
Satine Kryze: Enough of this dreary talk. A new hospital has opened. Tomorrow you and I shall visit, see true good at work.

Padmé Amidala: It wasn't Death Watch, Prime Minister. It was a group of black market smugglers. They were diluting the drink with slabin. What they didn't count on was that the process would make the drinks poisonous.
Prime Minister Almec: And what about the sick children?
Satine Kryze: I ordered shipments of the antidote for all the schools and hospitals.
Prime Minister Almec: Oh, I'm glad this is over.
Satine Kryze: No, I'm afraid it's not over. The corruption we witnessed is intolerable. Payoffs, police unwilling to comply, my government fooled. How does this happen?
Prime Minister Almec: I'm sorry. I'm setting up a committee to look into it.
Satine Kryze: Children nearly died because our government cannot be counted on.
Prime Minister Almec: I assure you this will not go unpunished.
Satine Kryze: I'm counting on you, Almec.

Satine Kryze: I'm troubled, Padmé.
Padmé Amidala: You heard Prime Minister Almec say he'll investigate.
Satine Kryze: His heart is in the right place, but this corruption...
Padmé Amidala: You must have hope, Satine.
Satine Kryze: Hope will only go so far. The very people conducting this investigation might be corrupt. Perhaps a Jedi working undercover at the academy could be of service to us and in more ways than one, for if we lose our young, Mandalore will indeed be lost.

"Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Senate Murders (#2.15)" (2010)
Onaconda Farr: It is quite exciting.
Padmé Amidala: Exciting isn't exactly the word I would use. I think terrifying is more appropriate.

Padmé Amidala: The creation of more warriors will not end this war. The financial costs alone will bankrupt and cripple the Republic. By adding more clones to the conflict, we are only escalating destruction, not winning the war, which is why we must vote for this resolution, to promote more diplomacy and to bring an end to this killing and hatred.

Mee Deechi: That was quite a moment, my dear.
Padmé Amidala: Thank you, Senator Deechi.
Mee Deechi: Oh, it wasn't a compliment. You shouldn't make speeches like that. It's unpatriotic.
Padmé Amidala: The only thing I find unpatriotic is your warmongering.

Mon Mothma: My dear, you were brilliant.
Padmé Amidala: Thank you. But perhaps we should wait till we actually win the vote before we make a victory speech.
Halle Burtoni: [Burtoni enters the room] What a novel idea. Imagine that. Amidala's actually making sense for once in her life.
Padmé Amidala: Senator Burtoni, this is a private conversation.
Halle Burtoni: Private conversation or Separatist conspiracy?
Lolo Purs: How dare you? We are not pro-Separatist. We want to end the war.
Padmé Amidala: Committing more troops to the front lines will not allow diplomacy to resume.
Halle Burtoni: Diplomacy failed the Republic long ago.

Lt. Tan Divo: Senator Amidala, is it possible you might be going deaf?
Padmé Amidala: Lieutenant?
Lt. Tan Divo: Because when I said I didn't want you to interfere with my investigation, I can only assume that you didn't hear me.
Padmé Amidala: I had some information about a lead here at the docks.
Lt. Tan Divo: Which you naturally brought to me straightaway so I could investigate, only- No, wait. You did the exact opposite of that. There are rules, Senator.
Padmé Amidala: My friend was murdered. I don't care about rules.
Lt. Tan Divo: [scoffs] Don't care about rules? My dear, without rules, there's only chaos. Everyone must care about rules.

Bail Organa: It's been a difficult time. You've handled yourself well.
Padmé Amidala: I had to try. Ono believed if you see injustice, you can't wait for someone else to fix it. You must stand up and get involved.

Padmé Amidala: After all that, we lost.
Chancellor Palpatine: I know this decision was most unexpected. I myself don't support it, but democracy must stand.
Padmé Amidala: Of course. You are right, Chancellor.
Chancellor Palpatine: Actually, given recent events, perhaps it is for the best. How can we justify fortifying our security here in the Senate if we don't also provide reinforcements on the front lines? You see, the victory of the clone army, for now, is the only thing that can lead us to peace.

"Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Senate Spy (#2.4)" (2009)
Anakin Skywalker: I... brought dinner.
Padmé Amidala: How did you manage this?
Anakin Skywalker: I hitched a ride on a cargo freighter.
Padmé Amidala: What happened to your military transport?
Anakin Skywalker: Eh... it blew up.

Padmé Amidala: [referring to her apartment] You called this home.
Anakin Skywalker: What else would I call it?

Padmé Amidala: I'm on the Holonet with the Neimoidians every day asking for trade concessions but I can't ever seem to make progress.

Padmé Amidala: I'll be happy to go with you. It'll be like... old times.
Rush Clovis: [chuckles] On the contrary. I hope it'll be better than old times.

Padmé Amidala: I'm sorry.
Anakin Skywalker: What for? We got away and we have the hologram. The Jedi will use that information to destroy Count Dooku's foundry. Your mission was a success.
Padmé Amidala: But I made you doubt me...
Anakin Skywalker: Never.

"Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Heroes on Both Sides (#3.10)" (2010)
Anakin Skywalker: War is 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: [to Anakin] Maybe talking to the Jedi Council isn't the role for you after all.

Gume Saam: This is not a matter of philosophy. More troops are needed. The Republic cannot afford to let the Separatists gain anymore ground.
Bail Organa: Our generals inform us that troops in the field continue to perform valiantly. What we cannot afford is to be irresponsible. The Republic is near bankruptcy due to the cost of the war.
Lott Dod: Bankruptcy is not necessary, my friends. If we pass Senator Saam's bill to open new lines of credit, we will gain access to the needed funds.
Mon Mothma: Won't this bill essentially deregulate the banks?
Halle Burtoni: A small price to pay to finance the war, is it not?
Padmé Amidala: Members of the Senate. Do you hear yourselves? More money, more clones, more war. Say nothing of fiscal responsibility, what about moral responsibility? Hasn't this war gone on long enough?
Gume Saam: Senator Amidala, are you suggesting we surrender to the Separatists?
Padmé Amidala: Of course not. But negotiation might be a better course of action.

Padmé Amidala: You must ask the Jedi Council to speak with Chancellor Palpatine.
Anakin Skywalker: Don't involve me in this.
Padmé Amidala: A peaceful solution is the only way out of this morass war.
Anakin Skywalker: That's not my role, Padmé.
Ahsoka Tano: Why not? Why isn't it your role? Aren't we Jedi Knights? Isn't it our duty to speak our minds to advise the Chancellor?
Anakin Skywalker: Uh, I suggest you teach my young Padawan a thing or two about politics.
Padmé Amidala: After today's debate, I was hoping she learned a great deal.
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 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.

Padmé Amidala: If only I could talk to Senator Bonteri.
Ahsoka Tano: Who's he?
Padmé Amidala: He is a she, a senator in the Confederacy of Independent Systems.
Ahsoka Tano: Your friend is a Separatist? One of Dooku's pawns?
Padmé Amidala: The Separatists used to be a part of the Republic. I was close with many of the senators who left. I may not agree with them, but they're more than pawns.
Ahsoka Tano: If you think negotiating is the right thing to do, let's talk to her.
Padmé Amidala: [sighs] The Senate's made it illegal.
Ahsoka Tano: Illegal?
Padmé Amidala: They say official meetings would only legitimize the Separatists.
Ahsoka Tano: Well, Master Skywalker and I hold what we call aggressive negotiations all the time. It's a shame you can't hold more peaceful talks when you want.
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. Besides, Master Skywalker said you should teach me about politics.
Padmé Amidala: Right.
Ahsoka Tano: You know, you two have more in common than you think. It's no wonder you get along so well.
Padmé Amidala: Huh. Of course.

Padmé Amidala: Members of the Senate. Do you hear yourselves? More money, more clones, more war. Say nothing of fiscal responsibility, what about moral responsibility? Hasn't this war gone on long enough?

Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace (1999) (VG)
Queen Amidala: [after being shot with a rocket launcher] I'm not hurt. The laser blast just grazed my shoulder.

Queen Amidala: [while Qui-Gon is being attacked by Tusken Raiders] This place might be more dangerous than I thought.

Naboo soldier: Thank you for saving me. They
[the droids]
Naboo soldier: were taking me to be interrogated.
Queen Amidala: I have no time for you now. I must first liberate the planet.
Naboo soldier: Sometimes I wonder why we elected you queen.

Queen Amidala: You will pay for your actions, villain!
Nute Gunray: You've fallen into my trap! Battle droids, surround them!
[Droids die]
Nute Gunray: I surrender!
[victorious music]

Queen Amidala: You're stepping on my dress!

"Star Wars: The Clone Wars: The Zillo Beast Strikes Back (#2.19)" (2010)
Padmé Amidala: It's what we're capable of that frightens me. A creature's life, maybe even an entire species, is at stake. Doesn't that at least warrant a discussion?

Anakin Skywalker: Not that it isn't a pleasure, Senator, but I thought I was just meeting with Obi-Wan here.
Padmé Amidala: Master Kenobi explained the problem. I'm here to help.
Anakin Skywalker: Problem? What problem?
Obi-Wan Kenobi: The situation with our friend from Malastare.
Anakin Skywalker: Uh-huh. I see what's going on here. You think I could influence the Chancellor.
Padmé Amidala: The Zillo Beast was chained up and brought here against its will. It has no voice to defend itself. Anakin, we have to be that voice.
Anakin Skywalker: [chuckles] You haven't seen it in action. You have no idea what it's capable of.
Padmé Amidala: It's what we're capable of that frightens me. A creature's life, maybe even an entire species, is at stake. Doesn't that at least warrant a discussion?
Anakin Skywalker: [sighs] I didn't think you'd feel so strongly about it. All right, let's speak to the Chancellor. But I still don't like this.

Padmé Amidala: How is killing the last of a species, in secret and without debate, good for anyone?

Chancellor Palpatine: I should have known secrets do not stay secret for long around here.
Padmé Amidala: Isn't that precisely the point of a democracy?
Anakin Skywalker: Of course, in wartime, some things must be kept secret, even from the people, so as not to aid the enemy.
Mas Amedda: It is unfortunate that the beast must die, Senator. But the greater good demands it.
Padmé Amidala: How is killing the last of a species, in secret and without debate, good for anyone?

Chancellor Palpatine: I should have known secrets do not stay secret for long around here.
Mas Amedda: Isn't that precisely the point of a democracy?
Anakin Skywalker: Of course, in wartime, some things must be kept secret, even from the people, so as not to aid the enemy.
Padmé Amidala: It is unfortunate that the beast must die, Senator. But the greater good demands it.
Mas Amedda: How is killing the last of a species, in secret and without debate, good for anyone?

C-3PO: I'm having a bad feeling about this. With your permission, Senator Padmé, I would like to shut down before I get sensory overload.
Padmé Amidala: Permission denied.

Padmé Amidala: See if you and 3P0 can download any of the other battle droid's memory. I'm going to find that lab.
Captain Typho: Are you sure that's wise?
Padmé Amidala: Come on, Jar Jar.

Dr. Nuvo Vindi: What's a life form like you doing in a swamp like this?
Padmé Amidala: I was about to ask you the same thing.

Anakin Skywalker: Are you okay?
Padmé Amidala: Ani, how about the next time you rescue me before you kill all the Battle droids.
Anakin Skywalker: A little thank you would go a long way.

"Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Destroy Malevolence (#1.4)" (2008)
Padmé Amidala: I will not be made a Separatist bargaining chip. Continue your attack! You must destroy this monstrous ship.

Anakin Skywalker: Oh, the things you do to get me alone.
Padmé Amidala: Stop talking.

Padmé Amidala: [to Anakin] Ever since I've known you you've been playing with droids.

Obi-Wan Kenobi: Nice shot, senator.
Padmé Amidala: Beginners luck.

"Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Gungan Attack (#4.2)" (2011)
Padmé Amidala: I think I'm getting seasick...

Anakin Skywalker: I just hope you're a fast swimmer.
Padmé Amidala: Says the boy from the desert planet.

Padmé Amidala: That'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.

Ahsoka Tano: I can't just stay behind knowing about the threat to your life. Allow me to come with you, please?
Padmé Amidala: Well, I... suppose it couldn't hurt. Besides, I enjoy your company. Of course you can join me. As... extra security.

Padmé Amidala: [Padmé has bested Ahsoka in a game of Dejarik] You'll learn to play in time, Ahsoka. Someday, you'll even beat me.

Padmé Amidala: Fear: in these times, it is the greatest weapon wielded against those who would stand up for truth and justice. We have a responsibility as the elected representatives of the Republic to face our fears and challenge those who threaten the safety of its people. I stand before you today bruised, but not beaten. The voices of the people shall be heard. And together, we shall represent them. The homeless shall no longer be homeless and faceless, the soldiers who so valiantly fight to protect us must also be protected once their job is done. We need legislation to defend the displaced from slavery, to protect our soldiers from feeling as if there is no future beyond their warfare, and we must open channels through diplomacy so that we can end this war. I know there are those among the Separatists who would end this conflict. And I know there are those individuals in the galaxy who would seek to promote fear and spread chaos. To those who act as agents of chaos, I say this: I stand resolute and unyielding. And if you strike my voice down, know that a chorus of thousands shall rise up in its place, for you have no dominion over the righteous. We are the defenders of truth.

"Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Bombad Jedi (#1.8)" (2008)
Padmé Amidala: This is a mission of peace. I put my faith in diplomacy. We can't solve all of our problems by throwing troops at them.

Onaconda Farr: I am sorry, my sweet. I had no choice.
Padmé Amidala: There's always a choice! To live in fear is no life at all!

Padmé Amidala: Go back to the ship and call for help.
C-3PO: I regret the transmitters on the ship are out of order.
Padmé Amidala: What?
C-3PO: The ship has been destroyed.
Padmé Amidala: Battle droids?
C-3PO: No.
Padmé Amidala: Jar Jar?
C-3PO: Jar Jar.

"Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Hostage Crisis (#1.22)" (2009)
Anakin Skywalker: When I finished constructing my lightsaber. Ob-Wan said to me: Anakin, this weapon is your life. This weapon is my life.
Padmé Amidala: No, Anakin, I can't. A Jedi lightsaber is...
[Anakan puts his weapon in her hand]
Padmé Amidala: Wow. It's heaver than I thought.
Anakin Skywalker: It's yours. Believe me now?

Bail Organa: Why do you have a Jedi's lightsaber?
Padmé Amidala: The question is whether we should try to get it back to A- the Jedi Knight, or use it ourselves?

"Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Sphere of Influence (#3.4)" (2010)
Padmé Amidala: Should you really proceed without the Council's approval?
Anakin Skywalker: We do it all the time, don't we, Snips?
Ahsoka Tano: Yep!
Padmé Amidala: Well, be careful Ahsoka.
[to Anakin]
Padmé Amidala: I still can't believe they let you teach.

Padmé Amidala: Should you really proceed without the Council's approval?
Anakin Skywalker: We do it all the time, don't we, Snips?

Yoda: Very little time there is, Senator. Our only hope to rescue Jedi. To Ilum we must go. Now.
Captain Typho: This is not a rescue ship. May I remind our Master Jedi we have a more pressing mission.
Yoda: A slight detour. Jeopardize the mission, it will not.
[waves his hand slightly]
Captain Typho: A slight detour. Jeopardize the mission, it will not.
[Padmé looks at him in surprise, then smiles at Master Yoda]
Yoda: Be put in danger, the senator will not.
Captain Typho: Be put in danger, the senator will not.
Yoda: Save the lives of Jedi, we must.
Captain Typho: Save the lives of Jedi, we must.
Padmé Amidala: Master Yoda, I am convinced. I will not require my captain's farther... persuasion.
Captain Typho: [snaps out of it] Huh?

Padmé Amidala: Master Yoda, I can't let you go off to attempt a rescue mission alone.
Yoda: Yet alone I must be, for the rescue to succeed. Call you I will if assistance I require.

"Star Wars: The Clone Wars: The Wrong Jedi (#5.20)" (2013)
Padmé Amidala: [Padme crosses Ahsoka's cell and sits beside her] Until we hear from Anakin, let's work on your defence.
Ahsoka Tano: [Ahsoka sighs] Forgive me if I'm not optimistic. I thought I was part of that Order. But everyone, except Anakin, has abandoned me. I'm not holding out much hope the Senate will treat me any better.

Padmé Amidala: [Padme is pleading Ahsoka's defence in the Republic military courtroom] Look at the facts. Letta Turmond called Ahsoka to her cell to reveal the name of the true mastermind behind the bombing of the Jedi Temple. Letta told Ahsoka she was afraid. She told her the mastermind was a Jedi. And before she could reveal the Jedi's name, Letta Turmond was strangled to death by way of the Force. Why would Ahsoka kill Letta with a method that would so obviously tie the murder to her? A Jedi may be responsible for the murder. But that Jedi is not Ahsoka Tano. Members of the court, you are prosecuting the wrong Jedi!
Admiral Tarkin: [Takin claps, slowly and exaggeratedly] Well said, Senator Amidala. However, if she is innocent, then why was she seen conspiring with known Separatist terrorist Asajj Ventress?
Ahsoka Tano: Ventress set me up! My Master will prove that.
Admiral Tarkin: And where is your Master?
Ahsoka Tano: He's trying to find the real murderer!
Admiral Tarkin: Then maybe, he should be looking at you.

"Star Wars: Clone Wars: Chapter 23 (#3.3)" (2005)
[During the battle on Coruscant, a stray missile flies over and blows a hole in the wall of Padme's apartment]
C-3PO: OH, NO! We're under attack!
Captain Typho: [over 3PO's wailing] Milady, we must get you to safety!
Padmé Amidala: No, we have to evacuate the building! Get everyone to a shelter.
Captain Typho: Yes, milady.
C-3PO: [looking out the hole] I don't believe my circuits! An army of droids, here? I'd like to have a serious talk with your programmers...
Padmé Amidala: [grabbing him] Come on, 3PO!

Disney Infinity 3.0 (2015) (VG)
Padmé Amidala: Thank you, Master Jedi, Padawan Tano. Without your help, Darth Maul would have ruined any chance for a peaceful end to the Clone Wars. But now we can try to work toward a ceasefire.
Anakin Skywalker: Good luck, Senator. Know that the Jedi will do all we can to bring an end to this war.
[Amidala others walk away]
Ahsoka Tano: So... what's next?
Anakin Skywalker: The battle is not over yet, Snips. We haven't seen the last of Maul.
Obi-Wan Kenobi: Or Grievous, or Cad Bane, for that matter.
Obi-Wan Kenobi: We seem to attract all kinds of unpleasant beings.
Yoda: More worlds to visit, there are. More stories to tell, there will be.
