    Obiwan Kenobi, after killing Grievous : "So uncivilized..."
    Resonates so much with Ben's statement, in ANH, speaking about the lightsaber : "an elegant weapon, from a more civilized age"

    To me, the best quote of the PT comes from Darth Maul's TPM TV spot. It is quite possible that my love for this character stems more from this 30 sec advert than from anything he did in the actual film!

    "Fear. Fear attracts the fearful... the strong... the weak... the innocent... the corrupt. Fear... Fear is my ally."

    (vicious)

    Funny question is....would fans complain that the line wasn't in the film today? We'd burn down the internet, lol

    Obi-Wan Kenobi: "You're using her as bait?"
    Anakin Skywalker: "It was her idea... Don't worry, no harm will come to her. I can sense everything going on in that room. Trust me."
    Obi-Wan Kenobi: "It's too risky... besides, your senses aren't that attuned, young apprentice."
    Anakin Skywalker: "And yours are?"
    Obi-Wan Kenobi: "Possibly."

    I like this quote a lot. It's very true and deeper than it may seem. At least IMO.

    Great thread, btw!

    But... but... I don't regard this as deep cut!!! Please, don't say I'm that old?!?!? These TV spots really informed the films back in the day...

    *throws in the towel* I guess the Emperor and I are yesterday's news...


    (No wonder the young'uns aren't impressed by Darth Maul anymore)... :p

    During the credits of Ralph Breaks the Internet, there is a gag about scenes that are in the trailer but not in the movie. I won’t ruin it, but the underlying implication could be interpreted as “Just trust that they were deleted for a good reason.”

    Came here to say this. I really love this line it's not just one of the best in the PT but the entire saga.

    As someone else said, the entire Obi Wan/Anakin Mustafar exchange. I specifically love when Obi Wan finally reveals that Anakin was the Chosen One "It was said you would destroy the Sith not join them. Bring balance to the force not leave it in darkness...You were my brother Anakin, I loved you." Ewan really sells the hell out of it making the great line of dialogue one of the best.

    I also like earlier on Mustafar "You will not take her from me!" "Your anger and your lust for power have already done that. You've allowed this dark lord to twist your mind until now, now you've become the very thing you swore to destroy."

    Oh yeah. I love this line.

    My favorites, all of them from TPM:

    Maul: "At last we will reveal ourselves to the Jedi. At last we will have revenge."

    Amidala: "I was not elected to watch my people suffer and die while you discuss this invasion in a committee!"

    Yoda: “Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering.”

    Another great one. I can feel George Lucas's righteous anger dripping off this dialogue :p

    Most of the good dialog involves Obi-Wan. In TPM it's humorous lines such as "The negotiations WERE short", in AOC I love the conversation between him and the Kaminoans and Jango, in ROTS it's his conversations with Anakin and also funny lines like "Not a happy landing" and "We're still flying HALF a ship". Most of the humor in the prequels was not that great, but lines like these work for me.

    Aside from Obi-Wan's scenes I love a lot of dialog from ROTS, such as the opera house scene, the scene where Anakin learns that Padme is pregnant, although that's contributed more to the fact that Anakin's face says "Oh blast" at first, and then he's trying to deal with the situation, less to the dialog (which was also good) and whenever Palpatine is manipulating Anakin I'm drawn to the film more and more

    I absolutely love this scene and every scene that Count Dooku is in. I’ve never discovered if it’s because Count Dooku is awesome, or I really like Christopher Lee. Easier to love characters when they’re played by amazing, likable actors.

    "It's time for you to go."
    "...so it is."

    A small moment, but feels very theatric/operatic. Love it.
