Anakin, Obi-Wan, and Qui-Gon stand before the twelve members of the Jedi Council.


The Mysterious M



  • Starts with Amidala walking out on Sheev and the senate, and ends with Obi-Wan declaring his readiness to take the trials.
  • Shot of Yoda's hump.


  • Some Jar Jar slapstick would be appropriate in this scene.
  • At this point, Sheev has basically won.
  • Samuel L. Jackson's performance in these movies.
  • The Jedi are really negative in this scene. Is the council supposed to be corrupt and impotent, or do they just appear that way to us?
    • Things might have worked out better if they had prevented Anakin's training, or formally trained him in the Jedi school.
  • The Jedi are set in their ways.
  • Discussing Anakin's fate right in front of him. He reacts with anger.
  • The five stages of becoming a Sith.
  • Jedi therapist.
  • The Jedi code
Key mantra

Emotion, yet peace.
Ignorance, yet knowledge.
Passion, yet serenity.
Chaos, yet harmony.
Death, yet the Force

Jedi Oath

I, [State your name] do swear on my honor,
and on the faith of the brotherhood of knights,
to use the Force only for good, denying,
turning always from the Dark Side;
to dedicate my life
to the cause of freedom, and justice.
If I should fail of this vow,
my life shall be forfeit,
here and hereafter.


  • The Force "fan-nonfic"; Theology Fanfic.
  • Anakin as the spoiled teacher's pet.
  • Mentioned: Rankin/Bass Rudolf the Red-Nosed Reindeer.
  • Odd prescience by Frank Oz: "Soon you won't even need me..."
  • The Trials. Do you just need to kill a Sith Lord?
  • Phantom Menace Number and rank the movies.
  • Plug for the Star Wars Minute Listener's Society.
