  • Starts with Jar Jar telling the Jedi that they are "bombad", and ends with "the Queen" making a decision about whether they should stay or go.
    • First time that "bombad" is used.
  • Clear shot of Saché
    • Played by Sofia Coppola.
  • First time "Coruscant" is mentioned.


  • Referenced: Poochie from the Simpsons.
  • Ralph is not a big fan of this movie.
  • Sio Bibble is super ungrateful to the Jedi for rescuing them.

  • Captain Panaka is being Mr. Negative yet again.
  • Limited numbers of bad guys.
    • Referenced: Willow (1988).
  • Qui-Gon points out that the Federation's plan makes no sense (lampshading?).
  • Spin-off: "Hogan's Heroes" but in the Nemoidian camps on Naboo.
  • Qui-Gon says "destroy" rather than kill. They rarely say "kill" in these movies.
  • Sabé is looking to Padmé to figure out what they should do next.
    • Is she telling her the correct decision in code? She says "we are brave", and since "brave" starts with "b", they should choose plan B, which is to go.
  • Sio Bibble's voice is nearly always dubbed in.
    • Referenced: Jigsaw Killer from the Saw film franchise.
  • Complex, pristine costumes in this movie (vs. the Original Trilogy).
