Escape from custody. resisting arrest. Imagine if the Imperial authorities had found out who you really were, Jyn Erso. That is your given name, is it not? Jyn Erso, daughter of Galen Erso?

"Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Heroes on Both Sides (#3.10)" (2010)
Gume Saam: This is not a matter of philosophy. More troops are needed. The Republic cannot afford to let the Separatists gain anymore ground.
Bail Organa: Our generals inform us that troops in the field continue to perform valiantly. What we cannot afford is to be irresponsible. The Republic is near bankruptcy due to the cost of the war.

Mon Mothma: Won't this bill essentially deregulate the banks?
Halle Burtoni: A small price to pay to finance the war, is it not?
Padmé Amidala: Members of the Senate. Do you hear yourselves? More money, more clones, more war. Say nothing of fiscal responsibility, what about moral responsibility? Hasn't this war gone on long enough?

Padmé Amidala: Of course not. But negotiation might be a better course of action.

Halle Burtoni: Private conversation or Separatist conspiracy?
Lolo Purs: How dare you? We are not pro-Separatist. We want to end the war.
Padmé Amidala: Committing more troops to the front lines will not allow diplomacy to resume.
Halle Burtoni: Diplomacy failed the Republic long ago.
