Qui-Gon Jinn: I shall do what I must, Obi-Wan.

Obi-Wan: I have a bad feeling about this.
Qui-Gon Jinn: I don't sense anything.
Obi-Wan: It's not about the mission, Master. It's something... elsewhere. Elusive.

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.

Anakin: You're a Jedi Knight, aren't you?
Qui-Gon Jinn: What makes you think that?
Anakin: I saw your laser sword. Only Jedi carry that kind of weapon.

Anakin: I don't think so. No one can kill a Jedi.
Qui-Gon Jinn: I wish that were so.

Qui-Gon Jinn: There's always a bigger fish.

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?

Qui-Gon Jinn: I have... acquired a pod in a game of chance. The fastest ever built.
Watto: I hope you didn't kill anyone I know for it.

Watto: I want to see your spaceship the moment the race is over.
Qui-Gon Jinn: Patience, my blue friend.

Qui-Gon Jinn: Remember, concentrate on the moment. Feel, don't think. Trust your instincts.

Anakin: But what about mom? Is she free too? You're coming too, aren't you mom?
Qui-Gon Jinn: I tried to free your mother Anni, but Watto wouldn't have it.
Shmi Skywalker: Son, my place is here, my future is here. It is time for you to let go.

Qui-Gon Jinn: These Federation types are cowards. The negotiations will be short.

Qui-Gon Jinn: Remember: Your focus determines your reality.

Qui-Gon Jinn: I can only protect you, I cannot fight a war for you.

Qui-Gon Jinn: Keep your concentration here and now, where it belongs.

Qui-Gon Jinn: Finding him was the will of the force, I have no doubt of that.

Shmi Skywalker: Can you help him?
Qui-Gon Jinn: I don't know. I didn't actually come here to free slaves.

Qui-Gon Jinn: You must have Jedi reflexes if you race pods.
[Jar-Jar tries to grab a piece of fruit with his tongue, but Qui-Gon catches it]
Qui-Gon Jinn: Don't do that again.

Qui-Gon Jinn: Captain.

Qui-Gon Jinn: Tell them we wish to board at once.
Radiant VII captain: [to communication device] With all due respect, the ambassadors for the Supreme Chancellor wish to board immediately.
Nute Gunray: [on view screen] Yes, of course. As you know, our blockade is perfectly legal and we'd be happy to receive the ambassadors.

Qui-Gon Jinn: He can see things before they happen. That's why he appears to have such quick reflexes. It's a Jedi trait.

Qui-Gon Jinn: Anakin! Tell them to take off!

Padmé: Are you sure about this? Trusting our fate to a boy we hardly know? The Queen will not approve.
Qui-Gon Jinn: The Queen does not need to know.
Padmé: Well, I don't approve.

Qui-Gon Jinn: Anakin Skywalker, meet Obi-Wan Kenobi.

Qui-Gon Jinn: There is something else behind all this, Your Highness. There's no logic in the Federation's move here. My feelings tell me they will destroy you.

Qui-Gon Jinn: [to Anakin] May the force be with you.

Qui-Gon Jinn: Your Highness, under the circumstances, I suggest you come to Coruscant with us.
Queen Amidala: Thank you, Ambassador. But my place is with my people.
Qui-Gon Jinn: They will kill you if you stay.

Qui-Gon Jinn: [mumbles, as Obi-Wan sits him up after battle with Darth Maul] Uhh, it's too late, it...
Obi-Wan: No!
Qui-Gon Jinn: Obi-Wan, promise... Promise me you will train the boy.
Obi-Wan: Yes, master.
Qui-Gon Jinn: [wiping a tear from Obi-Wan's right cheek] He is the chosen one. He will bring balance. Train him.

Qui-Gon Jinn: I don't have anything else...
[waves hand]
Qui-Gon Jinn: But credits will do fine.
Watto: No, they won't-a.
[Qui-Gon waves his hand more firmly]
Qui-Gon Jinn: Credits will do fine.
Watto: No, they won't-a! What? You think you're some kind of Jedi, waving your hand around like that? I'm a Toydarian. Mind tricks don't work on me. Only money. No money, no parts, no deal!

Qui-Gon Jinn: Let's get out of here before more droids show up
Jar-Jar Binks: More? More did you spake?

Anakin: What are midi-chlorians?
Qui-Gon Jinn: Midi-chlorians are a microscopic life form that resides within all living cells.

Qui-Gon Jinn: Not likely, we have nothing of value. That's our problem.
