Qui-Gon's comment about Anakin

Why: The line where Qui-Gon tells Shmi, “I didn’t actually come here to free slaves,” should be replaced with something else because it’s almost like an insult for him to be talking about her son as “one of the slaves” after she just asked him for help. It’s a big mood killer for me, and it just seems to ruin a perfectly good scene, especially being at the end of the conversation.

How: It can be replaced with something like “Even a Jedi doesn’t have the right to free a slave. (Pauses and looks over at Anakin) But I wish I could.

  1. Maybe with "The Republic/Jedi Council didn't send me on a mission to free slaves." Which I think is what he was really saying with this scene, anyways.
