JAR, QUEEN AMIDALA, ANAKIN, ARTOO, QUI-GON, OBI-WAN,
PADME, RABE, EIRTAE, and the rest of her group are led
through a clearing full of GUNGAN refugees. At the far
end are the ruins of a grand temple with massive carved
heads. BOSS NASS and several other COUNCIL MEMBERS walk
out on the top of a three-quarter-submerged head.
NASS : Jar Jar, yousa payen dis time. Who's da uss-en
AMIDALA steps forward. CAPTAIN PANAKA and the JEDI stand

the circumstances it has become necessary to protect
myself. Although we do not always agree, Your Honor,
our two great societies have always lived in peace...until
now. The Trade Federation has destroyed all that we
have worked so hard to build. You are in hiding, my
people are in camps. If we do not act quickly, all will
be lost forever...I ask you to help us...no, I beg you
to help us.
drops to her knees and prostrates herself before BOSS
NASS. There is a gasp from CAPTAIN PANAKA, HIS TROOPS,
and the HANDMAIDENS.
: (Cont'd) We are your humble servants...our fate is
in your hands.
CAPTAIN PANAKA and his TROOPS bow down before the GUNGAN
COUNCIL. Then the HANDMAIDENS, ANAKIN, and finally the
JEDI. The GUNGANS are puzzled by this. BOSS NASS begins
NASS : Yousa no tinken yousa greater den da Gungans..
