"I can only guess how poor Anakin is feeling now ... He is extremely fond of Master Kenobi, you must know, even if our esteemed Jedi friend disciples him so often. I wish there was something I could do for him. One way to ease his pain. Because as much as I respect and admire the Jedi, Padmé, I sometimes find their insistence on emotional distance almost as ... well, unpleasant. And Anakin ... Good heavens, he's not like the other Jedi, is he? He is much more sensitive. More vulnerable. He doesn't need people around him who love him, who he knows they care about, not in spite of its heated nature, rather because he is like that. "
