Otoh Gunga, leaving the glow of the settlement in the
SUB COCKPIT - UNDERWATER

JAR : Dis is nusen.
OBI-WAN : Master, why do you keep dragging these pathetic
life forms along with us?...Here, take over.

JAR JAR : Ooooh, maxibig..."da Force"...Wellen,

JAR veers the craft to the left and turns the lights
on. The coral vistas are grand, fantastic, and wonderous.
: Why were you banished, Jar Jar?
JAR JAR : Tis a long tale, buta small part wawdabe mesa...ooooh...aaaa.....clumsy.
OBI-WAN : They banished you because you're clumsy?
the little sub glides into the planet core, a large
dark shape begins to follow.

there is a loud CRASH, and the little craft lurches
to one side. QUI-GON looks around and sees a huge, lumimnous
OPEE SEA KILLER has hooked them with its long gooey
: Full speed ahead.
of full ahead, JAR JAR jams the controls into reverse.
The sub flies into the mouth of the creature.
JAR : Oooops.
OBI-WAN : Give me the controls.
takes over the controls and the OPEE SEA KILLER instantly
releases the sub from its mouth.
JAR : Wesa free!
the sub zooms away they see a larger set of jaws, munching
on the hapless KILLER. The jaws belong to the incredible
SANDO AQUA MONSTER. The lights on the tiny sub begin
to flicker as they cruise deeper into the gloom.
: There's always a bigger fish.

and RUNE stand before a hologram of DARTH SIDIOUS.
: The invasion is on schedule, My Lord.
DARTH SIDIOUS : Good. I have the Senate bogged down
in procedures. By the time this incident comes up for
a vote, they will have no choice but to accept your
control of the system.
NUTE : The Queen has great faith the Senate will side
DARTH SIDIOUS : Queen Amidala is yound and naive. You
will find controlling her will not be difficult. You
have done well, Viceroy.
NUTE : Thank you, My Lord.
SIDIOUS fades away.

NUTE : No need to report that to him, until we have
something to report.

OBI-WAN : Power's back.
lights flicker on, revealing an ugly COLO CLAW FISH
right in front of them.
JAR : Monstairs back!
large COLO CLAW FISH is surprised and rears back. The
sub turns around and speeds away.
JAR : (cont'd) Wesa in trouble now??
QUI-GON : Relax.
puts his hand on JAR JAR's shoulder. JAR JAR relaxes
into a coma.
: You overdid it.
COLO CLAW FISH leaps after the fleeing sub as it shoots
out of the tunnel and into the waiting jaws of the SANDO
(cont'd) This is not good!
JAR regains consciousness.
JAR JAR : Wesa dead yet?? Oie Boie!
JAR's eyes bulge, and he faints again. The sub narrowly
avoids the deadly teeth of the AQUA MONSTER. The COLO
CLAW FISH chasing them isn't so lucky. It is munched
in half by the larger predator. The little sub slips
: Head for that outcropping.

long columns of the DROID ARMY move down the main road
leading to Theed, the Naboo capital.
THEED PLAZA - DAY (FX)

They exit the transport.

THEED - ESTUARY - DAY
Billowing clouds frame a romantic body of water. There
is a LOUD RUSH OF BUBBLES, and a small sub bobs to the
The current in the estuary begins to pull the sub backward
into a fast moving river. OBI-WAN switches off the two
remaining bubble canopies. QUI-GON stands up to look
around. JAR JAR lets out a sigh of relief.
JAR : Wesa safe now.
QUI-GON : Get this thing started.
JAR JAR : Dissen berry good. Hey?
OBI-WAN : What is it?
JAR looks back to where they're drifting. He sees they
are headed for a huge waterfall.
JAR : What!!?? Oie boie!
tries to start the engine. The long props behind the
sub slowly begin to rotate. OBI-WAN struggles until
finally, a few feet short of the waterfall, the sub
starts and is able to generate enough power to stop
drifting backward in the powerful current. The sub slowly
moves forward. In the background, QUI-GON takes a cable
out of his belt. The engine coughs and dies. They start
drifting backward again. JAR JAR panics.
JAR : (cont'd) Iyiiyi, wesa die'n here, hey!
shoots the thin cable, and it wraps itself around a
railing on the shore. The sub pulls the cable taut,
and the little craft hangs precariously over the edge
of the waterfall.
: Come on...
climbs out of the sub and pulls himself along the cable.
QUI-GON starts in after him.
: (cont'd) Come on, Jar Jar.
JAR JAR : No! Too scary!
OBI-WAN : Get up here!
JAR JAR : No a mighty no!
JAR looks back and sees he is hanging over the waterfall.
JAR : (cont'd) Oie boie...mesa comen. Mesa comen!
JAR starts to climb out of the sub. OBI-WAN is on shore
and helps to pull QUI-GON out of the water.
: That was close.
BATTLE DROID 3B3 : (O.S) Drop your weapons!
TWO JEDI turn around to see a BATTLE DROID standing
in front of them. JAR JAR climbs up on shore between
DROID 3B3 : I said drop your weapons
ignites his laser sword, and in a brief flash, the DROID
is cut down by the JEDI. A stray laser bolt hits the
cable and the sub breaks lose, crashing down the waterfall.
The JEDI move on. JAR JAR reluctantly follows and looks
back at the mess.
JAR : Whoa!!!
