Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith (2005) Poster

Natalie Portman: Padmé



  • Padmé : So this is how liberty dies, with thunderous applause.

  • Padmé : Anakin, I was so worried about you! Obi-Wan... told me terrible things!

    Anakin Skywalker : What things?

    Padmé : He said... you turned to the Dark Side. That you... killed Younglings!

    Anakin Skywalker : Obi-Wan is trying to turn you against me.

    Padmé : He cares about us.

    Anakin Skywalker : Us?

    Padmé : He knows. He wants to help you. Anakin, all I want is your love.

    Anakin Skywalker : Love won't save you, Padme. Only my new powers can do that!

    Padmé : But at what cost? You're a good person, don't do this!

    Anakin Skywalker : I won't lose you the way I lost my mother. I am becoming more powerful than any Jedi has ever dreamed of, and I'm doing it for you. To protect you.

    Padmé : Come away with me. Help me raise our child far away. Leave everything else behind while we still can!

    Anakin Skywalker : No. Don't you see? We don't have to run away anymore! We no longer have to hide our love for each other. I am more powerful than the Chancellor, I... I can overthrow him! And together, you and I can rule the galaxy! We can make things the way we want them to be!

    Padmé : I don't believe what I'm hearing! Obi-Wan was right... you've changed! You have turned to the dark side! You're not Anakin anymore!

    Anakin Skywalker : [with a growing angry look and voice]  I don't want to hear any more about Obi-Wan. The Jedi turned against me. Don't you turn against me!

    Padmé : [crying]  Anakin, you're breaking my heart! You're going down a path I cannot follow!

    Anakin Skywalker : Because of Obi-Wan?

    Padmé : Because of what you've done... what you plan to do! Stop! Stop now... come back... I love you!

    [Anakin looks beside Padme and sees Obi-Wan standing at the ship's exit overhearing them] 

    Anakin Skywalker : [enraged and paranoid]  Liar! You're with him! You brought him here to kill me!

  • Padmé : Obi-Wan... there... is good in him. I know there is... still...

    [Padme dies] 

  • The Emperor : [to the Senate]  In order to ensure our security and continuing stability, the Republic will be reorganized into the first Galactic Empire, for a safe and secure society which I assure you will last for ten thousand years.

    [Senate fills with enormous applause] 

    Padmé : [to Bail Organa]  So this is how liberty dies... with thunderous applause.

  • Obi-Wan Kenobi : [referring to Anakin]  When is the last time you saw him?

    Padmé : Yesterday.

    Obi-Wan Kenobi : Do you know where he is now?

    Padmé : No.

    Obi-Wan Kenobi : Padmé, I need your help. He is in grave danger.

    Padmé : From the Sith?

    Obi-Wan Kenobi : From himself. Padmé, Anakin has turned to the Dark Side.

    Padmé : You're wrong! How could you even SAY that?

    Obi-Wan Kenobi : I have seen a security hologram... of him... killing Younglings.

    Padmé : No! Not Anakin! He couldn't...

    Obi-Wan Kenobi : He was decieved by a lie... we all were. It appears that the Chancellor is behind everything, including the war! After the death of Count Dooku, Anakin became his new apprentice.

    Padmé : I don't believe you. I can't...

    Obi-Wan Kenobi : Padmé, I must find him.

    Padmé : You're going to kill him, aren't you?

    Obi-Wan Kenobi : He has become a very great threat.

    Obi-Wan Kenobi : [He gets off of the couch, walking towards his ship]  Anakin is the father, isn't he?

    Obi-Wan Kenobi : [Padmé doesn't know what to say]  I'm so sorry.

  • Senator Amidala : I'm not going to die in childbirth, Anakin. I promise you.

    Anakin Skywalker : No, I promise you.

  • Anakin Skywalker : Are you all right? You're trembling. What's going on?

    Padmé : Something wonderful has happened. Ani, I'm pregnant.

  • Anakin Skywalker : You are so... beautiful.

    Padmé : It's only because I'm so in love.

    Anakin Skywalker : No, it's because I'm so in love with you.

    Padmé : So love has blinded you?

    Anakin Skywalker : [laughs]  Well, that's not exactly what I meant.

    Padmé : But it's probably true.

  • [Captain Typho is trying to talk Padme out of leaving Coruscant without protection] 

    Captain Typho : My Lady, let me come with you.

    Padmé : There is no danger. The fighting is over, and... this is personal.

    [Typho bows] 

    Captain Typho : As you wish, My Lady... but I strongly disagree.

    Padmé : I'll be all right, Captain. This is something I must do myself. Besides, Threepio will look after me.

    C-3PO : Oh, dear.

    [Typho leaves; Padme and C-3PO board the Naboo skiff; Obi-Wan sneaks on board] 

  • Padmé : What if the democracy we thought we were serving no longer exists, and the Republic has become the very evil we have been fighting to destroy?

  • Padmé : Obi-Wan? Is Anakin all right?

    [Obi-Wan looks at her sadly and does not answer. He brushes her hair back. Padme drops back into unconsciousness] 

  • C-3PO : My lady, is there anything I might do?

    Padmé : No, thank you, 3P0.

    C-3PO : [walking away]  I feel so helpless.

  • Padmé : Hold me, like you did by the lake on Naboo; so long ago when there was nothing but our love. No politics, no plotting, no war.

  • Anakin Skywalker : I feel lost.

    Padmé : Lost?

    Anakin Skywalker : Obi-Wan and the Council don't trust me.

    Padmé : They trust you with their lives.

    Anakin Skywalker : Something's happening. I'm not the Jedi I should be. I want more. And I know I shouldn't.

  • Padmé : This war represents a failure to listen. Now you're closer to the Chancellor than anyone! Please, ask him to end this war and let diplomacy resume.

  • Padmé : Anakin, you're breaking my heart!
