[Back to Scene 14]

[Scene: Obi-wan, Yoda, and Anakin are crouched behind a battlement overlooking the palace gate.]
Yoda: Obi-Wan, more than thirty there are!

Obi-Wan: What's the difference? We've got him. Help me here. We'll have to Force-feed him.

Yoda: Fifteen minutes it has been?

Obi-Wan: We can't wait. The wedding's in half an hour. We must strike in the hustle and the bustle beforehand. Tilt his head back. Open his mouth.

Yoda: How long do we have to wait, before if we know the miracle works?

Obi-Wan: Your guess is as good as mine.

Anakin: I'll beat you two apart! I'll take you both together!

Yoda: I guess not very long.

Anakin: Why won't my arms move?

Yoda: Mostly dead have you been all day.

Obi-Wan: We had Miracle Mace make a pill to bring you back.

Anakin: Who are you? Are we enemies? Why am I on this wall? Where's Amidala?

Obi-Wan: Let me explain. No, there is too much. Let me sum up. Amidala is to marry Palpatine in a little less than half an hour, so all we have to do is get in, break up the wedding, steal the princess, make our escape, after I kill Lord Maul.

Anakin: That doesn't leave much time for dilly-dallying.

Yoda: Wiggled your finger you did! Wonderful that is!

Anakin: I've always been a quick healer. What are our liabilities?

Obi-Wan: There is but one working castle gate. And it is guarded by [he peers over the fortification]... sixty battle droids.

Anakin: And our assets?

Obi-Wan: Your brains, Yoda's strength, my lightsaber.

Anakin: That's it? Impossible. If I had a month to plan, maybe I could come up with something, but this...[Anakin shakes his head]

Yoda: Shook your head, did you! Make you happy that does not?

Anakin: My brains, your strength, and his lightsaber against sixty battle droids, and you think a little head jiggle is supposed to make me happy? Hmmmm? I mean, if we only had an Astromech Droid, that would be something.

Obi-Wan: Where did we put that Astromech that the Gungan had?

Yoda: With the Gungan, I think.

Anakin: Why didn't you list that among our assets in the first place? What I wouldn't give for a Sith Lord's cloak.

Obi-Wan: There we cannot help you.

Yoda: Would this do?

Obi-Wan: Where did you get that?

Yoda: At Miracle Mace's. Fit well, it did; so keep it, he said.

Anakin: All right, all right. Come on, help me up. Now I'll need a lightsaber eventually.

Obi-Wan: Why? You can't even lift one.

Anakin: True, but that's hardly common knowledge, is it? Thank you. Now, there may be problems once we're inside.

Obi-Wan: I'll say. Namely, how do I find Lord Maul? Once I do, how do I find you again? Once I find you again, how do I escape?

Yoda: Pester him not. A hard day had he.

Obi-Wan: Right. Right. Sorry.

Yoda: Obi-Wan?

Obi-Wan: What?

Yoda: I hope we win.
