Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones (2002)
Mace Windu: Anakin, escort the Senator back to her planet of Naboo. She'll be safter there. And don't use registered transport. Travel as refugees.

Yoda: The council is confident in its decision, Obi-Wan.
Mace Windu: The boy has exceptional skills.
Obi-Wan: But he still has much to learn, Master. His abilities have made him... well arrogant.
Yoda: Yes. Yes. A flaw more and more common among Jedi. Too sure of themselves they are. Even the older, more experienced ones.

Mace Windu: Protect the senator at all costs.

Mace Windu: This party's over.

Palpatine: I will not let this Republic, which has stood for a thousand years, be split in two. My negotiations will not fail.
Mace Windu: If they do, you must realize there aren't enough Jedi to protect the Republic. We're keepers of the peace, not soldiers.

Count Dooku: Brave, but, foolish, my old Jedi friend. You are impossibly outnumbered.
Mace Windu: I don't think so.
Count Dooku: We'll see.

Yoda: Blind we are, of creation of this clone army we could not see.
Mace Windu: I think it is time we inform the senate that our ability to use the force has diminished.
Yoda: Only a Dark Lord of the Sith knows of our weakness. If informed the senate is, multiply our adversaries will.

Mace Windu: What is it?
Yoda: Pain, suffering, death I feel. Something terrible has happened. Young Skywalker is in pain. Terrible pain.

[Padme says that she believes Count Dooku is behind the attacks on her life]
Ki-Adi-Mundi: He is a political idealist, not a murderer.
Mace Windu: You know, m'lady, that Count Dooku was once a Jedi. He couldn't assassinate anyone. It's not in his character.

Mace Windu: We will not be hostages to be bartered, Dooku.

Obi-Wan Kenobi: [deleted scene; Obi-Wan and Mace are walking along the Jedi Landing Platform] It appears someone doesn't want us to know about this Kamino System.
Mace Windu: Which means there's something happening in their System we should know about.
Obi-Wan Kenobi: Master, do you think a Jedi could have erased those files?
Mace Windu: I hope not.
[they walk over to Obi-Wan's Jedi Starfighter]
Mace Windu: This disturbance in the Force is making it hard to get a sense of things.
[the small platform they are on with Obi-Wan's Starfighter moves outside]
Mace Windu: [pause]
Obi-Wan Kenobi: I'm concerned with my Padawan. He is not ready to be on his own.
Mace Windu: If the prophesy is true, he is the one who will bring balance to the Force.
Obi-Wan Kenobi: But he still has much to learn. His skills have made him, well, arrogant. I realize now what you and Master Yoda said from the beginning, the boy was too old to start his training. Master we should not be given this assignment. I fear Anakin will not be able to protect the Senator.
Mace Windu: Why?
Obi-Wan Kenobi: He has an emotional collection with her. It's been there since he was a boy. Now he's confused. Distracted.
Mace Windu: Obi-Wan, you must have faith that he will choose the right path.
Obi-Wan Kenobi: [bows his head] Yes, Master.
[gets into his Starfighter and takes off]

Count Dooku: Master Windu, how pleasant of you to join us. You're just in time for the moment of truth. I would think these two new boys of yours could use a little more training.
Mace Windu: Sorry to disappoint you, Dooku. This party's over.
Count Dooku: Brave, but foolish, my old Jedi friend. You're impossibly outnumbered.
Mace Windu: I don't think so. The Geonosians aren't warriors. One Jedi has to be worth a hundred Geonosians.
Count Dooku: It wasn't the Geonosians I was thinking about. How well do you think one Jedi will hold up against a thousand battle droids?

Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith (2005)
Mace Windu: May the force be with us all.

Anakin Skywalker: Master Windu, I must speak with you.
Mace Windu: Not now, Skywalker. We have just received word that Obi-Wan has destroyed General Grievous. We're on our way to make sure the Chancellor returns emergency powers back to the Senate.
Anakin Skywalker: He won't give up his power. I just learned the terrible truth. I think Chancellor Palpatine is a Sith Lord.
Mace Windu: [suprised] A Sith Lord?
Anakin Skywalker: Yes, the one we've been looking for.
Mace Windu: How do you know this?
Anakin Skywalker: He knows the ways of the Force. He's been trained to use the Dark Side.
Mace Windu: Are you sure?
Anakin Skywalker: Absolutely.
Mace Windu: Then our worst fears have been realized. We must move quickly if the Jedi Order is to survive.

Mace Windu: The oppression of the Sith will never return! You, my lord, have lost!
Supreme Chancellor: [speaking as Darth Sidious] No... no... no! YOU WILL DIE!

Mace Windu: I sense a plot to destroy the Jedi. The Dark Side of the Force surrounds the Chancellor.
Ki-Adi-Mundi: If he does not give up his emergency powers after the destruction of Grievous, then he must be forcibly removed from office.
Mace Windu: It will be tricky. The Jedi Council will have to take control of the Senate to ensure a peaceful transition to a new goverment and a new leadership for the Republic.
Yoda: Hmm. To a dark place this line of thought will carry us. Great care we must take.

Yoda: Allow this appointment lightly, the council does not. Disturbing is this move by Chancellor Palpatine.
Anakin Skywalker: I understand.
Mace Windu: You are on the council, but we do not grant you the rank of master.
Anakin Skywalker: What? How can you do this? This is outrageous, it's unfair.
Mace Windu: Take a seat, young Skywalker.
Anakin Skywalker: Forgive me master.

[after Anakin is assigned by the Jedi to spy on Chancellor Palpatine]
Obi-Wan Kenobi: Anakin did not take to his new assignment with much enthusiasm.
Mace Windu: It's very dangerous, putting them together. I don't think the boy can handle it. I don't trust him.
Obi-Wan Kenobi: With all due respect, Master, is he not the Chosen One? Is he not to destroy the Sith and bring balance to the Force?
Mace Windu: So the prophecy says.
Yoda: A prophecy that misread could have been.
Obi-Wan Kenobi: He will not let me down. He never has.
Yoda: I hope right you are.

Mace Windu: In the name of the Galactic Senate of the Republic, you're under arrest, Chancellor.
Supreme Chancellor: Are you threatening me, Master Jedi?
Mace Windu: The senate will decide your fate.
Supreme Chancellor: [now speaking as Darth Sidious] I AM the senate!
Mace Windu: Not yet.
[the Chancellor/Darth Sidious rises slowly, and his lightsaber snaps to his hand from his sleeve]
Supreme Chancellor: It's treason, then...
[ignites his lightsaber and leaps over his desk to attack]

Mace Windu: [has Palpatine subdued] I'm going to put an end to this, once and for all!
Anakin Skywalker: You can't. He must stand trial.
Mace Windu: He has control of the senate and all the courts. He is too dangerous to be left alive!
Supreme Chancellor: [exhausted and disfigured] But, I'm too weak. Don't kill me.
Anakin Skywalker: That's not the Jedi way. He must live.
[Windu ignores Anakin, still intending to kill Palpatine]
Anakin Skywalker: I need him!
[Windu raises his lightsaber]
Anakin Skywalker: NO!
Supreme Chancellor: [Anakin draws his own lightsaber, cutting off Windu's arm, then Palpatine electricutes Windu] Power, unlimited power!

Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace (1999)
Qui-Gon Jinn: [describing his encounter with Darth Maul] He had all the lightsaber fighting capabilities and the moves of the Jedi, only faster and more agressive. My only conclusion... is that it was a Sith lord.
Ki-Adi-Mundi: Impossible! The Sith are extinct! They have been for nearly a millenium.
Mace Windu: I agree. The Sith would not have returned without us sensing it.
Yoda: Hard to see, the dark side is. We must investigate further before drawing a conclusion to the idenity of your adversary.

Yoda: How feel you?
Anakin: Cold, sir.
Yoda: Afraid are you?
Anakin: No, sir.
Yoda: See through you we can.
Mace Windu: Be mindful of your feelings.
Ki-Adi-Mundi: Your thoughts dwell on your mother.
Anakin: I miss her.
Yoda: Afraid to lose her I think, hmm?
Anakin: What has that got to do with anything?
Yoda: Everything! Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering. I sense much fear in you.

Yoda: Master Qui-Gon. More to say have you?
Qui-Gon Jinn: With your permission, my master, I have encountered a vergence in the Force.
Yoda: A vergence, you say?
Mace Windu: Located around a person?
Qui-Gon Jinn: A boy. His cells have the highest concentration of midi-chlorians I have seen in a life-form. It was possible he was concieved by the midi-chlorians.
Mace Windu: You refer to the prophecy of The One who will bring balance to the Force. You believe it's this boy?

Yoda: Always two there are, no more, no less. A master and an apprentice.
Mace Windu: But which was destroyed, the master or the apprentice?

Mace Windu: May the force be with you.

"Star Wars: The Clone Wars: R2 Come Home (#2.21)" (2010)
Anakin Skywalker: [R2 bleeps cautiously] You're not kidding, little buddy. I don't like the feel of this place either.
Mace Windu: Your astromech is programmed to feel?
Anakin Skywalker: R2 is kind of a... special case. He's got a lot of personality, that's all.
Mace Windu: You encourage it too much.

Anakin Skywalker: Ugh! I hate just sitting here!
Mace Windu: Calm yourself, Skywalker. We'll soon see if the faith you put in the droid is worth it...

Anakin Skywalker: Who's helmet is that anyway?
Mace Windu: It belongs to a bounty hunter I killed on Geonosis by the name of Jango Fett.

Mace Windu: Boba was on Geonosis when his father died. He watched as I killed him.
Anakin Skywalker: That would complicate things.
Mace Windu: Indeed.

Mace Windu: I can see why your master trusts you, little one. Good job.
[R2 chirps a happy reply, then rolls off]
Anakin Skywalker: Heh. That's definitely more praise than I ever get.

"Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Children of the Force (#2.3)" (2009)
Cad Bane: [deviant] What are you going to do, Jedi? Torture me?
Mace Windu: I think the fear of whoever you work for outweighs your fear of us.
Cad Bane: [suddenly serious] This conversation is over.

Mace Windu: The Chancellor wants a report on our progress.
Obi-Wan Kenobi: Tell him this is not Republic business. It's an internal Jedi affair
Anakin Skywalker: I'm sorry to dissagree, but as long as the Jedi are acting military, we should report to the Chancellor. Even on internal matters such as this.
Obi-Wan Kenobi: [puts his arm on Anakin's shoulder] Well then, I guess you just volunteered to go. Give the Chancellor my regards.
Anakin Skywalker: Now wait a minute...

Anakin Skywalker: This could be a trap, Master. You sure you don't need us to go?
Mace Windu: Of course it's a trap, Skywalker.

Mace Windu: Blast!
Obi-Wan Kenobi: You certainly stepped in it this time!

Obi-Wan Kenobi: The important thing is that the children are safe and we've recovered the Holocron.
Mace Windu: The list is intact and there is no evidence it was copied.
Yoda: Still, the future of all Jedi uncertain is. Move forward cautiously we must.

"Star Wars: The Clone Wars: The Zillo Beast (#2.18)" (2010)
Dr. Sionver Boll: We have accounted for every probable outcome.
Mace Windu: It's the improbable that concerns me, Doctor.

Mace Windu: I have a bad feeling about this.

Anakin Skywalker: Don't worry about me, I'm alright.
Mace Windu: Where's your starfighter?
Anakin Skywalker: That thing ate it.

Doge Urus: Our ancestors warned us that one would return someday and destroy our entire civilization. Will you help us or not?
Mace Windu: I respect your traditions and your ancestors, but... we cannot allow the destruction of an innocent life form.
Doge Urus: Then there will be no treaty.

Anakin Skywalker: Hey! It worked.
Mace Windu: Are you sure?
Anakin Skywalker: Yes I'm sure. You go first.

"Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Liberty on Ryloth (#1.21)" (2009)
Cham Syndulla: Senator Taa. So glad you could join us from comfortable Coruscant. Our people have survived with only me.
Orn Free Taa: [via hologram] I knew you would try to turn this into a campaign to take power. Need I remind you that it is I who leads our people in the senate?
Cham Syndulla: And it is I who leads our people here and now.
Mace Windu: There will be nothing left to lead if you two refuse to work together.

Mace Windu: I'll hold them off. Get that bridge back up!

Wat Tambor: General Windu! Perhaps we can come to a compromise.
Mace Windu: Not when I hold all the cards.

"Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Lethal Trackdown (#2.22)" (2010)
Anakin Skywalker: How about tracking him down?
Mace Windu: So I should behave as this child does? I should seek revenge?

Boba Fett: I see now I've done terrible things.
[raises voice]
Boba Fett: But you started when you murdered my father! I'll never forgive you.
Mace Windu: Hm... Well, you're going to have to. Take him away.

"Star Wars: Clone Wars: Chapter 25 (#3.5)" (2005)
Yoda: [while fighting the Droid Army on Coruscant] Strange is the enemy's strategy.
Mace Windu: A massive invasion but no attempt to take the temple or the senate.
Yoda: Unless... an elaborate distraction.
Mace Windu: To hide their primary objective.
Yoda, Mace Windu: Palpatine!

Mace Windu: [hologram transmission] Kenobi, Skywalker. Coruscant is under siege and General Grievous has abducted the Supreme Chancellor. Must return immediately. You must rescue Palpatine.

"Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Sacrifice (#6.13)" (2014)
Mace Windu: The council has assembled. They are eager to hear your report.
Yoda: Afraid, not much there is to say, about my journey.
Obi-Wan Kenobi: So, nothing significant happened to you out there?
Yoda: Yes, and no. To the end, we are coming now.
Mace Windu: Did your journey give you insight on how to win the war?
Yoda: No longer certain, that one ever does win a war, I am. For in fighting the battles, the bloodshed, already lost we have. Yet, open to us a path remains. That unknown to the Sith is. Through this path, victory we may yet find. Not victory in the Clone Wars, but victory for all time.

"Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Lair of Grievous (#1.10)" (2008)
[Kit Fisto informing the Jedi High Council about the loss of his former apprentice]
Mace Windu: What about your former padawan?
Kit Fisto: His heart was in the right place, but he tried to answer Grievouses power with his own.
Yoda: To answer power with power the jedi way this is not, in this war a danger there is of losing who we are.

"Star Wars: Clone Wars: Chapter 21 (#3.1)" (2005)

[hands macrobinoculars to General Kenobi]
Obi-Wan Kenobi: It appears to be one of Anakin's improvised plans.
Mace Windu: How can it be a plan if it's improvised?
Obi-Wan Kenobi: Not to worry, just catch them when they fall.
Captain Rex: A lot of the General's plans involve falling.

"Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Death Trap (#2.20)" (2010)
Mace Windu: You seem more disappointed than our cadets.
Anakin Skywalker: It's our job to instruct and inspire.
Mace Windu: You just wanted to show off.
Anakin Skywalker: Hey, when I show off, it is instructive.
[a beat]
Anakin Skywalker: And inspiring.
Mace Windu: For you, maybe.

"Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Gungan Attack (#4.2)" (2011)

Obi-Wan Kenobi: Dathomir? The planet of the witches? I was under the impression that Darth Maul's home world was Iridonia.
Mace Windu: Dathomir was the planet where Maul was raised. Iridonia is where the rest of the males of the species dwell.
Yoda: Travel to Dathomir, you must. Find the source of the threat, you will.

"Star Wars: Clone Wars: Chapter 23 (#3.3)" (2005)
Sassese Tinn: Master Windu, enemy starships continue to spill out of hyperspace. Our forces are holding, but they need help.
