by Love and Rock Music. (TCW) The first half of "Destroy Malevolence," as Anakin and Padmé make their way towards each other.
P/A QUOTES: ATTACK OF THE CLONES
"Ani?! My goodness, you've grown."
Anakin: "So have you-- grown more beautiful, I mean-- well, for a Senator, I mean..."
Padmé: "Oh, Ani. You'll always be that little boy I knew back on Tatooine."
(Backpedaled awfully quickly, didn't you, M'Lady? ;))
"She hardly even recognized me, Jar Jar. I've thought about her every
day since we parted... and she's forgotten me completely."
Jar Jar: "Shesa happy. Happier than mesa seein' her in a longo time."
Obi-Wan: "Be mindful of your thoughts, Anakin; you're focusing on the negative... she was pleased to see us."
Anakin: "I'd much rather dream about Padmé. Just being around her again is... intoxicating."
"Sometimes we must let go of our pride, and do what is requested of
Padmé: "Anakin... you've grown up."
"Anakin... don't try to grow up too fast."
Anakin: [draws himself to full height] "But I am grown up. You said it yourself."
Padmé: "Please don't look at me like that."
Anakin: "Why not?"
Padmé: (rather stiffly) "It makes me feel uncomfortable."
Anakin: "Sorry, milady."
"Must be difficult having sworn your life to the Jedi. Not being able
to visit the places you like, or do the things you like..."
Anakin: "Or be with the people that I love?"
Padmé: "Are you allowed to love? I thought that was forbidden for a Jedi."
Anakin: "Attachment is... forbidden. Possession is forbidden. Compassion, which I would define as unconditional love, is central to a Jedi's life... so, you might say, we are encouraged to love."
Padmé: (smiles) "You've changed so much..."
Anakin: "You haven't changed a bit. You're exactly the way I remember you in my dreams."
"But when the Queen asked me to serve as Senator, I couldn't refuse
Anakin: "I agree with her. I think the Republic needs you - I'm glad that you chose to serve."
"Do you know, Anakin, you're the first boyfriend my sister's ever brought
Padmé: "He's not my boyfriend!"
"Why haven't you told us about him?"
Padmé: "What's there to talk about? He's just a boy."
Sola: "A boy?! Have you seen the way he looks at you?"
Padmé: "Sola, stop it!"
Sola: "It's obvious he has feelings for you."
Padmé: "Anakin and I are... friends. Our relationship is strictly professional."
[after breaking the kiss]: "No... I shouldn't have done that."
Anakin [confused]: "I'm sorry..."
"You're making fun of me!"
Anakin: "No, no. I'd be much too frightened to tease a Senator."
Anakin: "From the moment I met you, not a day has gone by when I haven't thought of you."
Anakin: "What can I do? I will do anything that you ask."
"If you follow your thoughts through to conclusion, it'll take us to a
place we cannot go - regardless of the way we feel about each other."
Anakin: "Then you do feel something!"
Padmé: "I will not let you give up your future for me!"
Anakin: "You're asking me to be rational. That is something I know I cannot do. Believe me, I wish I could just wish away my feelings. But I can't."
Padmé: "I will not give in to this."
"Well, you know... it wouldn't have to be that way."
Padmé: [hesitating just a moment] "We'd be living a lie! One we couldn't keep even if we wanted to. I couldn't do that. Could you, Anakin? Could you live like that?
Anakin: "No. You're right. It would destroy us."
Padmé: "I don't want to disturb you."
Anakin: "Your presence is soothing."
"You're going to have to stay here. These are good people, Padmé.
You'll be safe."
Padmé: (almost forlornly) "Anakin..." [embraces him]
Anakin: "I won't be long."
"Ani, are you just going to sit here and let him die? He's your
friend, your mentor!"
Anakin: "He's like my father! But you heard Master Windu - he gave me strict orders to stay here."
Padmé: "He gave you strict orders to protect me. And I'm going to help Obi-Wan. If you plan to protect me, you'll just have to come along."
"As a member of the Senate, maybe I can find a diplomatic solution to this
Anakin: "Don't worry. I've given up trying to argue with you."
"Don't be afraid."
Padmé: "I'm not afraid to die. I've been dying a little each day since you came back into my life."
Anakin: "What are you talking about?"
Padmé: "I love you."
Anakin (his expression of disbelief here is wonderful): "You love me...? I thought we had decided not to fall in love. That we would be forced to live a lie. That it would destroy our lives..."
Padmé: "I think our lives are about to be destroyed anyway. I truly, deeply, love you... and before we die I want you to know."
[grins] "You call this a diplomatic solution?"
Padmé: [grins back] "No, I call it 'aggressive negotiations!'"
"I can't leave her!"
Obi-Wan: "You will be expelled from the Jedi Order! Come to your senses! What do you think Padmé would do in your position?"
Anakin: (very resignedly) "She would do her duty.">
"Where is your apprentice?"
Obi-Wan: "On his way to Naboo. Escorting Senator Amidala home."
