Anakin: Is that what you're doing? What about our mission?
R2-D2: Next level I can get Enhanced Environmental Sealing. I'm obviously not going to infiltrate an enemy HQ without that.
Anakin: It's so touching that you're into self-improvement.

Captain Tarpals: Wesa done for, Jar Jar.
Jar Jar: Not yet! Here's da plan.
Jar Jar: Artoo issa very smart droid. Hesa can use da Trade Federation computers to tell da droids to stop working!
Captain Tarpals: But how yousa gonna tell him that?

GM: Er... There's no way R2 could know what Jar Jar thought of.
R2-D2: Do I sound like I'm talking in character?
