When the Queen is in Palpatine's apartment, Palpatine says "Our best choice would be to push for the election of a stronger Supreme Chancellor. One that could control the beauracrats" there is an odd noise.
It almost sounds like a creaky floorboard or an offstage noise of some kind.
It's always bugged me. At first, I thought it was my VHS copy, then I heard it again on the DVD, so that wasn't it.
Is it sloppy audio or am I missing something, like Darth Maul hiding in the closet and knocking something over (Jack Tripper style)?
It's at 1 hour 23 minutes (Chapter 27) on the DVD in case you want to see it.
