Qui Gon was never a master, only a knight, due to his disobedience towards the council. Obi Wan points this out when he disargees with him about taking and training Anakin.
Most epic death in star wars; 'Freeze you Rebel Scum!' *is pelted with a box and screams like a girl while falling to his death.*
Made forever more epic by the fact that scream is saved and reused in literally every single movie since.
Ahh..actually that scream was first used in the 1951 film Distant Drums. Though ya after star wars, Indy films and disney cartoons used it it became more popular.
