Star Wars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace - I'm Building a Droid
Right after Anakin invites the gang into his house Qui-Gon introduces himself to Shmi (Annie's mom) and sez "Im Qui-Gon Ginn" then he turns his head down to Jake Loydd and sez "Im building a droid" just as Anakin/Jake sez that same line. He was helping him out. So through the scene Liam Neeson is saying "Im Qui-Gon Ginn, Im building a droid. Your son was kind enough to offer us shelter."

Ok... I just checked it out. Listen and look at the scene closely. As Quigon says "Hi, I'm Qui-Gon Jinn and this is Padme and Jar Jar" to Anakins mother, Anakin is SIMULTANEOUSLY saying the "I'm building a droid..." line to Padme and Jar Jar. It gets confusing because their speach is overlapping - but it's easy enough to distinguish between the voices of Qui-Gon and Anakin (especially if you watch the seen twice - once looking at Anakin speaking and once watching Qui-Gon Jinn. Sorry but this is no slip-up - just two conversations running together.

If you turn on the closed caption option on your computer I clearly reads "Hi, I'm Quigon Jinn and this is Padme and Jar Jar. Try it.

I just remembered this one as I was watching the movie yesterday. And it really does seem like Liam Neeson is calling Jake Lloyd's line there, although it sounds a bit garbled. It sounds sort of like "I'm built 'kut droid" or something like that. Also, he starts to say it just a split-second after Jake starts talking. If he wasn't calling his line for him, I can't tell what else he might've been saying. He doesn't seem to be talking to anyone in particular.

That's stupid. They should've redone the scene. I checked it out. It is kind of funny.

It makes the scene more real. It would be more likely for a kid to not wait for someone to finish to say something. And personally I think it's very easy to distinguish the two voices.

I heard him say something, but after listening to it a few times, I'm not sure he's saying Jake Lloyd's line, it sounds a little different and Jake starts before Qui Gon does. Who really know what he said? Good ear though, I didn't notice it until I read this!!!!

I've got to go check this out. There's no way that someone could mess up on their lines like that and have the person he's talking to keep a straight face.

He started to say "I'm" he got half a word out then a cut there is a mistake in the film but I think they just cut it out becouse "Anakin ~ I'm building a droid" is more important then what ever it was he was going to say. but there was a slip-up at 00:36:52½...
