What did Q.G. Jinn say?

I always wonder what Qui Gonn says at the beginning of TPM when the gas starts blowing into the chamber. What does he say? It sounds like 'dioxx' or something.
And that still amazes me what he says later when he introduces himself to Anakin's mother. "I'm Qui Gonn Jinn." Then he says something that sounds just like Anakin's next line, "I'm building a droid." "Your son was kind enough to offer us shelter." That's the goofiest thing. Did anyone ever decide what that was for sure?

Brad,
I believe that Qui-Gon uses the force on Jar-Jar to calm him down. Instead of just calming him down, QGJ nearly made Jar-Jar pass out.

It is Aankin not Qui Gon that says "Im building a droid, wanna see" to Princess A.
Qui Gon says "DIOXIS" when the gas is comming in at the start of the film.

I had to check the subtitles the last time I saw TPM (I hadn't seen it in about a year and a half) during the underwater city scenes.
It sounds like Neeson says "And speeders on their way."
What he really says, according to the subtitles, is "Then speed us on our way..."
Weird... I never get that he's trying to mind-trick Boss Nass.

Luckily for us we have administrators. *Bonk* why didn't I think to check the subtitles?? I'll have to do that when I get home.

Weird. I never noticed that before. It's like Liam had another line there, but Jake screwed up and they never did anything to fix it (like remove Liam's voice and edit in a head from another shot where his lips aren't moving). It sounds to me like he was trying to introduce Jar Jar.

Mark, it's a reference to 'Shindler's List'.
You wanna hear something REALLY funny, check out the scene on Corascant when Anakin says to Qui Gon on the landing platform "Qui Gon sir, I don't wanna be a problem."
If you listen real close you can actually hear Qui Gon mumble under his breath "Well you are!"

Maybe this is a joke and I'm the world's biggest rube, but I don't hear this at all. In fact, his reply is so quick there almost isn't any time for him to mumble anything. All I hear is:
"Qui Gon sir, I don't want to be a problem."
"You won't be, Ani."

when he puts Jar Jar to sleep I was always under the impression that it was a little reflection back to Star Trek and he was using the Spock grip---Probably not but there are allot of references to other science fiction films in tpm

Yeah, and you caused me to take out my Buck Rogers disc! Now, I have to sit through that damn VCI movie theater intro again!
