[Back to Scene 11]

[Scene: Inside a home somewhere.]

Ben Kenobi: "Yoda and Obi-Wan were reunited. And as Yoda nursed his inebriated friend back to health, he told Obi-Wan of Nute Gunray's death and the existence of Lord Maul, the six-horned Sith who murdered his master. Considering Obi-Wan's lifelong search, he handled the news surprisingly well.
[Obi-Wan falls head first into a bowl of food]

Ben Kenobi: Yoda took great care in reviving Obi-Wan."

Yoda: Gooood fooood, yes? ...how you get so big on food so bad?

[Yoda dunks Obi-Wan's head into hot and cold water-filled buckets in turn to sober him]

Obi-Wan: That's enough! That's enough! Where is this Darth Maul now, so I may kill him?

Yoda: He's with the Senator, in Theed Palace. But the palace gate is guarded by thirty Destroyer Droids.

Obi-Wan: How many could you handle?

Yoda: [Counts on fingers] More than ten I could not.

Obi-Wan: Leaving twenty for me. At my best I could never defeat that many. I need Nute Gunray to plan. I have no gift for strategy.

Yoda: But dead is Nute Gunray.

Obi-Wan: No, not Nute Gunray. I need the man in black.

Yoda: What?

Obi-Wan: Look, he bested you with the Force, your greatness. He bested my lightsaber. He must have out-thought Nute Gunray. And a man who can do that can plan my palace onslaught any day. Let's go.

Yoda: Where?

Obi-Wan: To find the man in black, obviously.

Yoda: But know where he is, do we not!

Obi-Wan: Don't bother me with trifles. After twenty years, at last my Master's soul will be at peace. There will be blood tonight!

[Palpatine did not place much faith in "Lock the door and hope they don't have blasters." Thus the thirty destroyer droids.]

[Yoda was skeptical about finding the man in black.]
