Tak Rydel: Arm yourselves. Sand mouse, can you shoot? Anakin Skywalker: Yes. SFX: [SLIP] Tak Rydel: Dap, commence firing — I want that thing wrecked. All personnel, off the bridge. Nurrestes, you know what to do. Lek Nurrestes: Sure thing, Tak. Anakin Skywalker: I can handle myself. Obi-Wan Kenobi: I don’t doubt it. Trust your instincts and be mindful. May the Force be with you.
Tak Rydel: You bastards! We had a deal! SFX: [BEEP] Obi-Wan Kenobi: Even if you send me over, they’ll want no witnesses. Dap: Damage to the Rush. Damage to the Raid. Tak, they’re targeting the carriers. Gyff: Tak, communications are effectively jammed. Tak Rydel: Scramble remaining starfighters. Launch a coordinated on their battleship and bring it down. Yerl: [SOUND OF WAVES] Tak Rydel: Damn! Hangar bay’s shot. Then fire everything! SFX: [CRASH!] Tak Rydel: What now? SFX: [THUMP!]
Tak Rydel: Yerl, report. Yerl: [SOUND OF WAVES] Tak Rydel: Those morons! Tak Rydel: Separatist Admiral, this is the Commodore of the Marauders, Tak Rydel. What in blazes are you doing firing on my flagship? SFX: [BEEP] Obi-Wan Kenobi: Incoming! SFX: [BOOM!!!!!] SFX: [TREMBLE] SFX: [AHHH!!!] SFX: [THUMP!] SFX: [OOF!]
Tak Rydel: Keep your end of the bargain and I'll keep mine. Obi-Wan Kenobi: I need to see my companion first. SFX: [BEEP] Tak Rydel: Yerl, tell their Admiral I’ll send the Jedi over in twenty minutes. I made you a promise, didn’t I? Obi-Wan Kenobi: A pirate’s promise. Tak Rydel: Hey, I like that. Obi-Wan Kenobi: Tak has agreed to help us. Anakin Skywalker: Trusting pirates? Tak Rydel: You have a better choice? SFX: [OPEN] Anakin Skywalker: Incoming.
Obi-Wan Kenobi: Her planet is under attack by the Separatists, and the Republic cannot help us. I was hoping to barter your services in order to save her people. Tak Rydel: Hold on. The Marauders are not soldiers. It’s her planet — make her fight for it. Obi-Wan Kenobi: She tried, but she was taken prisoner. Tak Rydel: Falling asleep on the job, then? Obi-Wan Kenobi: If I’m handed over to the Separatists, you’ll be signing not only my death warrant, but death for all of us. Every Marauder. Every Naboo and Gungan. If you help us, I can get you fuel, a place at a repair dock, anything you need. I only ask for the opportunity to rescue the Queen. Tak Rydel: You mean a battle. What proof can you give me? Obi-Wan Kenobi: Check the astromech’s registration. Property of the Royal House of Naboo.
Tak Rydel: Why come out here, huh? Obi-Wan Kenobi: To find you. SFX: [OFF] Tak Rydel: So not a coincidence running into us? SFX: [BUZZ! BUZZ!] Tak Rydel: Yerl, report! A battleship is infiltrating our space. Obi-Wan Kenobi: X-4. She must have been tracked before. And they’re tracking her again. SFX: [BEEP] Tak Rydel: Really? They have? Turn off the klaxon. Rydel out. SFX: [BUZZ!] SFX: [BU--] Tak Rydel: The owners of the Separatist battleship only want ‘the Jedi’. That’s you, isn’t it? Of course it is, they wouldn’t bother with a sand mouse. Tak Rydel: The deal is, if I turn you over to them, my fleet can go free, but if not … Why are they so interested in you?
Obi-Wan Kenobi: I am the designated guardian of Queen Amidala of the Naboo.
Obi-Wan Kenobi: Excuse me. Obi-Wan Kenobi: Excuse me. Are we here to negotiate? Tak Rydel: See that? Tak Rydel: Repairs. Fuel. Crew members who need to eat. I need those things and you’re going to provide them for me. That is, if you have anything of worth. Though I doubt it, seeing as how you dress like you’re poor. Tak Rydel: So what’ll it be? I know a pirate who could use such a robe. Obi-Wan Kenobi: If I can give you what you want, is there any guarantee that I and my fellow traveler will be allowed to leave? Tak Rydel: Don’t trust my word as a pirate? Obi-Wan Kenobi: Your profession does leave much to be desired.
Tak Rydel: Surrender all weapons and you might survive this. Tak Rydel: My name is Tak Rydel. You are guests of the Marauders. Anything you have is now ours. That ship … if you want to call it that … is ours. Any tech you have is ours. Could use a mechanic. Have a protocol droid needs a new memory core. Tak Rydel: Don’t have charity to give. Obi-Wan Kenobi: What if we’re looking to escape with our lives? Tak Rydel: We trade in goods and services. Obi-Wan Kenobi: Then I’m willing to trade. SFX: [HAHAHAHA!!!] Tak Rydel: Brig.
Lieutenant Thule: I can’t disguise myself as a clone — they know each others’ movements. I would give us away immediately. Qui-Gon Jinn: You can tell this isn’t the real Dooku? Captain Panaka: A clone can always spot another clone. SFX: [FZZT! FZZT!] SFX: [LAND] SFX: [FZZT!] Captain Panaka: If we destroy it, we’ll only have seconds before the main power clicks back on. SFX: [FZZT!] SFX: [SNAP-HISS] SFX: [FZZT!] SFX: [SIZZLE] SFX: [HUMM] SFX: [FZZT!] SFX: [SHOO] SFX: [CRACK!] SFX: [FALL...] SFX: [AHHH!!!] SFX: [AHHH!!!]
Anakin Skywalker: Thank you, Watto, at least there’s fuel. SFX: [CLICK!] Obi-Wan Kenobi: X-4, scramble code five to Courscant, care of the Old Folks’ Home. SFX: [ZE-WH-NA!] Obi-Wan Kenobi: The Sith have returned. Anakin Skywalker: X-4, input the coordinates for the Pirate’s Nest. SFX: [TREMBLE] SFX: [ZOOM!] Anakin Skywalker: Hang on.
Anakin Skywalker: I’m calling in a favor, Watto. A ship. You owe me. Watto: Yeah, Ani, yeah. SFX: [FLAP FLAP FLAP] Anakin Skywalker: And pilots. We need pilots. Watto: The Pirate’s Nest. Only the mad go there, eh. SFX: [FLAP FLAP FLAP] Obi-Wan Kenobi: Should take a two day lightspeed jump to get there. I assume they’re not nice people. Watto: You assume right. Cut your throat just as soon as look at you. This is suicide, Ani. SFX: [FLAP FLAP FLAP] Anakin Skywalker: When can you get us that ship?
