Yoda: ... problems, she is causing.
Palpatine: Yes, I know. Unfortunately she's... unconventional in her approach to diplomacy; and very headstrong.

Palpatine: As Chancellor, I must respect the will of the Senate, M'Lady.
Padmé: We should have kept the old Chancellor. He really knew how to get things done.
