Shmi Skywalker Quotes:
Shmi Skywalker: You can't stop change any more than you can stop the suns from setting.
[Anakin is about to leave his mother behind to train as a Jedi]
Anakin: I can't do it, Mom. I just can't do it.
Shmi Skywalker: Ani...
Anakin: Will I ever see you again?
Shmi Skywalker: What does your heart tell you?
Anakin: I hope so. Yes... I guess.
Shmi Skywalker: Then we will see each other again.
Anakin: I will come back and free you, Mom. I promise.
Shmi Skywalker: Now, be brave, and don't look back. Don't look back.
Shmi Skywalker: All slaves have a transmitter placed somewhere in their body.
Anakin: I've been working on a scanner to try and locate mine.
Shmi Skywalker: Any attempt to escape...
Anakin: And they blow you up! BOOM!
Jar Jar Binks: How wude!
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.
Shmi Skywalker: There was no father. I carried him, I gave birth, I raised him. I can't explain what happened.
Anakin: I've built a racer. It's the fastest ever! There's a big race tomorrow on Boonta Eve. You could enter my pod. It's all but finished...
Shmi Skywalker: Anakin, Watto won't let you...
Anakin: Watto, doesn't know I've built it. You could make him think it was yours and you could get him to let me pilot it for you.
Shmi Skywalker: I don't want you to race Anni, it's awful. I die every time Watto makes you do it.
Anakin: But mom, I love it. The prize money would more than pay for the parts they need.
Shmi Skywalker: Can you help him?
Qui-Gon Jinn: I don't know. I didn't actually come here to free slaves.
Shmi Skywalker: [podrace] Well done, Anakin. You have given hope to all these people.
