** Some FridgeBrilliance: It's SchrodingersCanon now, but apparently, Dooku left the Order within a year of Qui-Gon's death. Which, combined with this scene, rather makes one wonder WhatCouldHaveBeen.

* Meeting Owen and Beru as a polite young couple, hospitable to and concerned for the stepbrother they've only just met ... and knowing all along that they're DoomedByCanon to be ''murdered on his orders''.

** Jango's only fee for donating his DNA was having an unaltered clone. The novelization has Obi-Wan note that perhaps Jango [[DotingParent only wanted]] [[EvenEvilHasLovedOnes a son]], rather than someone to replace him.

Added DiffLines:

** Yoda's meditation of the whole affair beginning with Qui-Gon (probably the only person other than Shmi and Padme who had absolute faith in Anakin becoming a great Jedi) crying Anakin's name before screaming [[BigNo "No!"]] and fading away to Darth Vader's iconic breathing. Frank Oz's performance just sells the immense sorrow and concern he feels for Anakin.
--> '''Mace''': What is it?
--> '''Yoda''': Pain...suffering...death, I feel. Something terrible has happened. Young Skywalker is in pain. Terrible pain.

* Shmi Skywalker's death. She's been captured by Tusken Raiders, tortured to near death, and dies in the hands of her son, just managing to get out "I... love..." before dying. And people wonder why Anakin's so messed up. You could totally understand why Anakin would do what he did next (even though it was horrible itself) after having his mother die in his arms like that. Anakin's utterly broken plea of "Stay with me, mom." - complete with trembling jaw and watering eyes... Anyone who has ever lost a parent will know his sorrow.
* But that doesn't forgive what he then does. He ''kills the entire tribe of Tuskens''. And not just the men, but ''the women and the children as well''. Which leads to a horrific MyGodWhatHaveIDone.

And then, after that, he has a horrific MyGodWhatHaveIDone.massive MyGodWhatHaveIDone HeroicBSOD.

* Obi-Wan, taken captive by the Seperatists, is confronted with Count Dooku who tells him that he regrets Qui-Gon's death and would have liked them to work together. Obi-Wan retorts that Qui-Gon would never have joined up with Dooku. His tone and facial expression show that he's ''[[TranquilFury furious]]'' and that even after ten years the loss still ''hurts like hell''. So much for no attachments, ey?

* A CryForTheDevil moment: the female assassin gets injured and captured, and as a result Obi-Wan and Anakin interrogate her politely. They don't use any Jedi Mind tricks, just PolitenessJudo, seeing that she's incapacitated, and then she gets ''killed'' in front of them as she's about to reveal her employer's name.

* In the novelization, while visiting Padme's parents Anakin finds a photograph of Padme doing intergalactic community service. She tells him she was helping to save civilians from a planet whose sun was dying, and that they "were" wonderful. When Anakin asks, "''Were''?" she soberly tells him that [[ShootTheShaggyDog the civilians couldn't live off their planet]], meaning her work was AllForNothing. Yet she kept doing that work, despite the losses, until she became queen.
