A= Anakin Skywalker
P= Padmé Amidala
A: And when I got to them,
we went into aggressive negotiations.
P: “Aggressive negotiations”? What’s that?
A: Well, negotiations with a lightsabre.
Anakin moves Padmé’s pear with the force,
then cuts it in two…
A: If Master Obi-Wan caught me doing this,
he’d be very grumpy.
gives the one half back to her.
(both of them smile)
A: From the moment I met you…
all those years ago…
not a day has gone by when I haven’t thought of you.
And now that I’m with you again…
I’m in agony.
The closer I get to you, the worse it gets.
The thought of not being with you… I can’t breath.
I’m haunted by the kiss
that you should never have given me.
My heart is beating…
hoping that that kiss will not become a scar.
You are in m very soul… tormenting me.
What can I do?
I will do anything you ask.
If you are suffering as much as I am,
please, tell me.
P: I can’t. We can’t.
It’s… just not possible.
A: Anything is possible, Padmé.
Listen to me.
P: No, you listen.
We live in a real world. Come back to it.
You’re studying to become a Jedi.
I, I’m a senator.
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.
A: Then you do feel something.
P: I will not let you give up your future for me.
A: You’re asking me to be rational.
That is something I know I cannot do.
Believe me, I wish that I could just wish away my feelings…
but I can’t.
P: I will not give in to this.
A: Well you know…
it wouldn’t have to be that way.
We could keep it a secret.
P: 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?
A: No. You’re right.
It would destroy us.
