Ah, Obi-Wan. Stuck on the sidelines, helplessly waiting while his master concocts some harebrained scheme to get the money for their ship's repairs. By the time Qui-Gon shows up with the parts, you can see his Padawan has just about reached the end of his tolerance for impulsive eccentricities.

"Why do I sense we've picked up another pathetic life form?"

We usually assume that the previous pathetic life form he's referring to is Jar Jar, but maybe it's not just him. Maybe this isn't the first mission where Qui-Gon has picked up strays with the vague sense that they might prove useful. My husband and I have even joked that Qui-Gon has been constantly on the hunt for potential Chosen Ones. Can you imagine Mace Windu wearily rolling his eyes about it -- "You think everyone's the Chosen One. Last week you thought it was that potted plant!"

But seriously. Obi-Wan is going to get some intense comeuppance for his snark this time. This "pathetic life form" is mere days from becoming his Padawan, and their relationship is arguably the most important he will ever know, for better or worse. He'll go from the unpredictable but steady care of his father-figure, Qui-Gon, to becoming the caretaker of a tumultuous surrogate son/brother in Anakin. And he'll learn very quickly that Anakin is far more than some helpless pitiable creature. Don't underestimate anyone's potential. That slave from an obscure planet could very well be the Chosen One.

Next, some words of wisdom from Shmi...
