Desktop Calendar // March/April 2015




Padmé: "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?  ;))

Anakin: "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."

Anakin: "Sometimes we must let go of our pride, and do what is requested of us."
Padmé: "Anakin... you've grown up."

Padmé: "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."

Padm´┐Ż:  "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."

Padmé: "But when the Queen asked me to serve as Senator, I couldn't refuse her."
Anakin: "I agree with her.  I think the Republic needs you - I'm glad that you chose to serve."

Sola: "Do you know, Anakin, you're the first boyfriend my sister's ever brought home?"
Padmé: "He's not my boyfriend!"

Sola: "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."

Padmé [after breaking the kiss]: "No... I shouldn't have done that."
Anakin [confused]: "I'm sorry..."

Padmé: "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."

Padmé: "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."

Anakin: "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."

Anakin:  "Don't go."
Padmé:  "I don't want to disturb you."
Anakin:  "Your presence is soothing."

Anakin: "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."

Padmé: "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."

Padmé: "As a member of the Senate, maybe I can find a diplomatic solution to this mess."
Anakin: "Don't worry.  I've given up trying to argue with you."

Anakin: "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."

Anakin: [grins] "You call this a diplomatic solution?"
Padmé: [grins back] "No, I call it 'aggressive negotiations!'"

Anakin: "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.">

Mace: "Where is your apprentice?"
Obi-Wan: "On his way to Naboo.  Escorting Senator Amidala home."
