Droidengespräche 4 INT. FEDERATION BATTLESHIP - DOCKING BAY - SPACE A Protocol Droid, TC-14, waits at the door to the docking bay. Two Worker Droids, PK-4 and EG-9 watch. PK-4: ?They must be important if the Viceroy sent one of those useless protocol gearheads to greet them.? The door opens, and the Republic cruiser can be seen in the docking bay. Two darkly robed figures are greeted by TC-14. TC-14: ?I'm TC-14 at your service. This way, please.? They move off down the hallway. EG-9: ?A Republic cruiser! That's trouble...don't you think?? PR-4: ?I'm not made to think.? Obi-Wan im Sumpf 22 EXT. NABOO SWAMP - SHALLOW LAKE - TWILIGHT Three landing craft slowly descend through the cloud cover of the perpetually grey twilight side of the planet. One by one, the Federation warships land in the eerie swamp. Obi-Wan's head emerges from the mud of a shallow lake. For in the background, the activities of the invasion force can be seen in the mist. Obi-Wan takes several deep breaths, then disappears again under the muddy swamp. Troop Transports (MTT's) emerge from the landing craft. Jar Jar´s Frühstück 24 EXT. NABOO SWAMP - TWILIGHT An odd, frog-like Gungan, Jar Jar Binks, squats holding a clam he has retrieved from the murky swamp. The shell pops open. Jar Jar's great tongue snaps out and grabs the clam, swallowing it in one gulp. Jar Jar looks up and sees Qui-Gon and the other creatures running like the wind toward him. Wasserfallszene 36 EXT. THEED - ESTUARY - DAY Paradise. Billowing clouds frame a romantic body of water. There is a loud rush of bubbles, and a small sub bobs to the surface. The current in the estuary begins to pull the sub backward into a fast moving river. Obi-Wan switches off the two remaining bubble canopies. Qui-Gon stands up to look around. Jar Jar lets out a sigh of relief. JAR JAR: ?Wesa safe now.? QUI-GON: ?Get this thing started.? JAR JAR: ?Dissen berry good. Hey?? Obi-Wan: ?What is it?? Jar Jar looks back to where they're drifting. He sees they are headed for a huge waterfall. JAR JAR: ?What!!?? Oie boie!? Obi-Wan tries to start the engine. The long props behind the sub slowly begin to rotate. Obi-Wan struggles until finally, a few feet short of the waterfall, the sub starts and is able to generate enough power to stop drifting backward in the powerful current. The sub slowly moves forward. In the background, Qui-Gon takes a cable out of his belt. The engine coughs and dies. They start drifting backward again. Jar Jar panics. JAR JAR: (cont'd) ?Iyiiyi, wesa die'n here, hey!? Qui-Gon shoots the thin cable, and it wraps itself around a railing on the shore. The sub pulls the cable taut, and the little craft hangs precariously over the edge of the waterfall. QUI-GON: ?Come on...? Obi-Wan climbs out of the sub and pulls himself along the cable. Qui-Gon starts in after him. QUI-GON: (cont'd) ?Come on, Jar Jar.? JAR JAR: ?No! Too scary!? OBI-WAN: ?Get up here!? JAR JAR: ?No a mighty no!? Jar Jar looks back and sees he is hanging over the waterfall. JAR JAR: (cont'd) ?Oie boie...mesa comen. Mesa comen!? Jar Jar starts to climb out of the sub. Obi-Wan is on shore and helps to pull Qui-Gon out of the water. OBI-WAN: ?That was close.? BATTLE DROID 3B3: (O.S) ?Drop your weapons!? The two Jedi turn around to see a Battle Droid standing in front of them. Jar Jar climbs up on shore between the Jedi. BATTLE DROID 3B3: ?I said drop your weapons? Qui-Gon ignites his laser sword, and in a brief flash, the Droid is cut down by the Jedi. A stray laser bolt hits the cable and the sub breaks lose, crashing down the waterfall. The Jedi move on. Jar Jar reluctantly follows and looks back at the mess. JAR JAR: ?Whoa!!!? Lagebesprächung der Föderation 52 INT. FEDERATION BATTLESHIP - CONFERENCE ROOM Nute and Rune sit around a conference table with a hologram of Darth Sidious. NUTE: ?We control all the cities in the North and are searching for any other settlements... ? DARTH SIDIOUS: ?Destroy all high-ranking officials, Viceroy...slowly...quietly. And Queen Amidala, has she signed the treaty?? RUNE: ?We should not have made this bargain. What will happen when the Jedi become aware of these Sith Lords?? Jar Jar´s Flehen 58 EXT. NABOO SPACECRAFT - MAIN AREA Obi-Wan is hoisting the hyperdrive out of a floor panel. Jar Jar rushes up to him and falls to his knees. JAR JAR: ?Obi-Wan, sire, pleeese, no mesa go!? OBI-WAN: ?Sorry, Qui-Gon's right. You'll make things less obvious.? Jar Jar walks back to Artoo in the hallway as Qui-Gon (dressed as a farmer) enters the main area. OBI-WAN: (Cont'd) ?The Hyperdrive generator is gone. We will need a new one.? Qui-Gon moves closer to Obi-Wan and speaks quietly to him. Anakin bei Jira 68 EXT. MOS ESPA - STREET - FRUIT STAND - DAY Anakin and the Group stop at a fruit stand run by a jolly, but very poor, old lady named Jira. ANAKIN: ?How are you feeling today, Jira?? JIRA: ?The heat's never been kind to me, you know, Annie!? ANAKIN: ?Guess what? I've found that cooling unit I've been searching for. It's pretty beat up, but I'll have it fixed up for you in no time, I promise.? JIRA: ?You're a fine boy, Annie.? Vor dem Morgengrauen 85 EXT. MOS ESPA - SLAVE QUARTERS - PORCH - SUNRISE Padmé exits the hovel. 86 EXT. MOS ESPA - SLAVE QUARTERS - BACK YARD - SUNRISE As the twin suns rise, Artoo is busy painting the racing Pod. Anakin is asleep. Padmé passes Artoo. PADME: ?I hope you're about finished.? Artoo whistles a positive reply. Padmé sees Kitster riding toward them on an Eopie, a strange camel-lile creature. He is leading a second Eopie behind him. Padmé goes over to Anakin. He looks very vulnerable as he sleeps. She watches him, then touches him on the cheek. Anakin wakes up, yawns, and looks at her, a little puzzled. ANAKIN: ?You were in my dream...you were leading a huge army into battle.? PADME: ?I hope not; I hate fighting. Your mother wants you to come in and clean up. We have to leave soon.? Anakin stands up and stretches just as Kitster arrives. ANAKIN: ?Hook 'em up, Kitster. (to Padmé) I won't be long. Where's Qui-Gon? ? PADME: ?He and Jar Jar left already. They're with Watto at the arena.? Anakin / Greedo Kampf 111 EXT. TATOOINE - STREET - SLAVE QUARTERS - DAY Anakin and A Greedo are rolling around on the floor, fighting. About a dozen of so Kids are standing around them, yelling. Suddenly, a long shadow is cast over the two BOYS; they stop fighting and look up. Qui-Gon is towering above them. Kitster is with them. QUI-GON: ?What's this?? ANAKIN: ?He said I cheated.? QUI-GON: ?Did you?? ANAKIN: ?No!? QUI-GON: ?Do you still think he cheated?? GREEDO: ?Yes.? QUI-GON: ?Well, Annie. You know the truth... You will have to tolerate his opinion, fighting won't change it.? Qui-Gon moves off down the street. Anakin follows. The Greedo wanders over to Wald who has been watching the goings-on. WALD: ?Keep this up, Greedo, and you're gonna come to a bad end.? Farther down the street Qui-Gon and Anakin head toward Anakin's hovel. Qui-Gon takes a handful of credits from beneath his poncho and hands them to the boy. QUI-GON: ?These are yours. We sold the Pod.? ANAKIN: (suddenly beaming) ?Yes!? Abschied von Kitster 114 EXT. MOS ESPA - STREET - SLAVE QUARTERS - DAY Kitster runs up to Anakin as he and Qui-Gon exit Anakin's hovel. Shmi stands in the doorway. Anakin pulls a handful of coins out of his pocket and gives them to Kitster. KITSTER: ?There are so many of us who want you to stay, Annie... You're a hero.? ANAKIN: ?I... (looks to Shmi) I... have to go.? Qui-Gon has moved a short way down the street. KITSTER: ?Well.? ANAKIN: ?Well.? KITSTER: ?Thank's for every moment you've been here. You're my best friend.? ANAKIN: ?I won't forget.? Anakin hugs Kitster Abschied von Jira 116 EXT MOS ESPA - STREET - FRUIT STAND - DAY Anakin and Qui-Gon exit Watto'S and stop before JIRA'S fruit stand. Anakin hands JIRA some coins. ANAKIN: ?I've been freed, and I'm going away. Buy yourself a cooling unit with this... Otherwise I'll worry about you.? JIRA is astonished. She stares, not knowing what to say. JIRA: ?Can I give you a hug.? ANAKIN: ?Sure.? She gives him a hug. JIRA: ?I'll miss you, Annie.. there isn't a kinder boy in the galaxy. You be careful...? Anakin runs to join Qui-Gon, who has already started down the street. As they walk along together, Qui-Gon notices something out of the corner of his eye. Suddenly, without breaking his stride, he ignites his laser sword, swing around, and lunges forward and cuts a lurking Probe Droid in half. Qui-Gon inspects the sparking and fizzing Droid. ANAKIN: ?What is it?? QUI-GON: « Probe droid. Very unusual... not like anything I've seen before. Come on.? Qui-Gon and Anakin start running. Tatooine Lichtschwertkampf 121 EXT. TATOOINE - NABOO SPACECRAFT RAMP - DAY The Sith Lord immediately jumps onto the ramp after Qui-Gon, but barely makes it. His heels hang over the edge of a forty-foot drop. Qui-Gon swings his laser sword with all his might and knocks Darth Maul off the ramp and onto the desert floor. The ramp closes, and the Naboo craft rockets away, leaving the Sith Lord standing alone. Vorzimmer von Palpatines Büro 134 INT. PALPATINE'S QUARTERS - ANTEROOM - DAY Queen Amidala is sitting listening to Palpatine. Eirtaé and Rabé stand behind the Queen; Padmé is nowhere to be seen.
