- Amidala: "No one at this table can fail to have noticed the recent increase in Separatist activity in the region. As a representative of the Republic, I propose a peace battalion be posted around Gus Talon for the duration of—"
- Slotho: "Preposterous! The Republic can see their power is slipping. Your proposal plays upon our fears of attack to blockade whole systems and leave these planets at your mercy."

As a representative on the Galactic Republic, Senator Padmé Amidala came to discuss how to respond to the recent increase in Separatist activity in the region, proposing to send a Republic battalion to defend the moon. The proposal was vigorously denounced by Slotho, who claimed the Republic was playing upon their fears of a Separatist attack to take control of their world.
Before the negotiations could go any further however, the conference was disrupted by the intervention of a Separatist GNK power droid, which powered down the automated diplomatic complex and instructed its droid servants to kill the diplomats. Attacked by a cleaning droid, a garbage droid, astromech droids, mouse droids and holograms, the occupants of the building were saved by R2-D2, which shut down the Separatist power droid and rebooted the automated facility.
