  • 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 smiles darkly at Jar Jar. Jar Jar bows his head piteously. Obi-Wan looks at Jar Jar, his face full of pity]
