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

Natalie Portman: Queen Amidala, Padmé



  • Queen Amidala : You're a slave?

    Anakin : I'm a person and my name is Anakin.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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 : 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 : 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] 

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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 : 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 : 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.

  • Padmé : You assume too much.

  • Queen Amidala : Get to your ships!

  • Queen Amidala : If this Body will not Act, I propose a vote of no confidence in Chancellor Valorum's Leadership.

  • Queen Amidala : Jar Jar Binks?

    Jar Jar Binks : Mesa, your Highness?

    Queen Amidala : Yes. I need your help.
