Darth Maul: {voiceover} "Palpatine figured the Feds couldn't possibly know your true mission since he hadn't given it to you yet."
Nute Gunray: We will not torerate your spies.
Palpatine: Spies? They're ambassadors representing the Senate, there to negotiate—
Nute Gunray: You wouldn't have sent Jedi for a simple trade dispute.
Palpatine: If they were spies, they'd be searching your base; not waiting politely to talk to you.

Qui-Gon: We search the room. Anything valuable?
