Sam Witwicky: Bee, I want to talk to you about the college thing, okay?

Sam Witwicky: Hey! I'm not taking you with me!
[Bumblebee is downcast]
Mikaela Banes: I'm gonna wait outside...
[goes outside and starts to strip]
Sam Witwicky: Bumblebee, just hear me out okay? You know, freshmen aren't allowed to have cars, that's all it is. It is best for both of us. I know it doesn't sound like it but... you're an Autobot, you shouldn't be living in my dad's garage. I mean you're suffocating in here. Hey will you look at me please? Hey, come on big guy...
[gives Bumblebee a hug]
Sam Witwicky: Look, the guardian thing is done, okay? You did your job. It's over with. You've gotta be something else, you've got have a bigger purpose then just me, Bee! I can't be the end all deal in your life! I wanna be normal, I want to go to college. Everybody has this, and I should be able to experience this. And I can't do that with you.
[Bumblebee bursts into tears; literally, with his windscreen cleaners malfunctioning]
Sam Witwicky: Come on... it's not the last time I'm gonna see you, you know? Come on, don't do that... Bee, you're killing me...
[Bee angrily gesticulates to Sam to go away]
Sam Witwicky: You'll always be my first car man. I love you.
[leaves the garage]

[Sam shows Mikaela Bumblebee testing his vocal processors]
Mikaela Banes: Is he still having voice problems?
Sam Witwicky: He's playing it off.

Sam Witwicky: [on the phone with Mikeala] I just read a 903-page astronomy book in 32.6 seconds. I had a meltdown in the middle of my class. I am seeing symbols ever since I...
Mikaela Banes: Since what?
Sam Witwicky: Ever since I touched the Cube splinter.

Sam Witwicky: Hey, beautiful! I made you a long-distance relationship kit... I got you a webcam so we can communicate 24/7!
Mikaela Banes: Sounds cute. I can't wait...

Mikaela Banes: Kiss this, bitch!
[runs Alice over]

Mikaela Banes: It took all this to say you love me.
Sam Witwicky: You said it first.

Leo Spitz: Dead pigs.
Mikaela Banes: YUCK!
Agent Simmons: What you are about to see is top secret. Do *not* tell my mother!
[Simmons reveals a secret bunker in a meat locker]
Leo Spitz: Swine flu, not good.
Agent Simmons: Now you know: next time you eat a goat or a pig, there's a story behind it, sad little story.

[Wheelie leads the group to an SR-71 Blackbird jet]
Wheelie: Oh, there he is... This guy's a legend, like the Chairman of the Board! Yo, freshman, point the shard and watch the magic happen.
[Sam sticks the Allspark shard into the jet. Mikaela makes a closer examination of the plane, and discovers a symbol... ]
Mikaela Banes: Oh, shit... It's a Deception!
Agent Simmons: Decepticon? Behind the MiG NOW!
[Sam, Mikaela, Leo and Simmons scramble away as the Blackbird transforms]
Jetfire: What sort of hideous mausoleum is this?
[Jetfire spots the humans]
Jetfire: Answer me, pawns and knaves! Show yourselves, or suffer my infinite wrath!
[Cautiously, the humans approach the robot]
Jetfire: You little spinal-cord-based organisms...!
[bangs his head on a model of a satellite, which drops and just misses Sam]
Jetfire: Oh, bugger it!
[stands upright]
Jetfire: Behold, the eternal glory of Jetfire! Prepare for remote systems override!
Wheelie: I tell you, this guy did NOT age well!
Mikaela Banes: I don't think he's gonna hurt us...

Mikaela Banes: Okay, so how do we stop him?
Jetfire: Only a Prime can defeat the Fallen.
Sam Witwicky: Optimus Prime?
[Jetfire leans forward to look at Sam]
Jetfire: So you've met a Prime? Why, you must have met a great descendant. Is he alive? Here, on this planet?
Sam Witwicky: He sacrificed himself to save me.
Jetfire: So he's dead. Without a Prime, it's impossible. No one else could have stopped the Fallen.
Sam Witwicky: So, the same energy that's gonna be used to reactivate the machine... could that energy somehow be used to reactive Optimus and bring him back to life?
Jetfire: It was never designed for that purpose, but it's an energy like no other.
Sam Witwicky: So, then how do you get us to the Matrix before the Decepticons get to me?
Jetfire: Follow your mind, your map, your symbols! What you carved in the sand, it's your clue: "When dawn lights the Dagger's Tip, Three Kings will reveal the doorway!" Find the doorway! Go now! GO! That was my mission! It's YOUR mission now! Go before the Decepticons find me and find you!
[Sam, Mikaela, Leo, Simmons, Bumblebee and the Twins leave]

Mikaela Banes: Here we are in the middle of the desert, with the stars above us, and you still can't tell me you love me.

Wheelie: I'm changing sides. I'm changing sides too, Warrior Goddess!
[climbs on Mikaela's foot]
Wheelie: Who's your little Autobot?
Mikaela Banes: Aww, you're cute...
Wheelie: Name's Wheelie. Yeah. Say my name, say my name...
Sam Witwicky: What are you allowing to happen to your foot just now?
Mikaela Banes: At least he's faithful, Sam.
Mikaela Banes: Yeah, well, he's faithful and he's nude and he's perverted. Can you just... Can you stop?
[pulls Wheelie off Mikaela]
Wheelie: Hey, what are you doing?
Sam Witwicky: Just stay right there, okay? I'm not gonna tell you again.

[Mikaela catches Sam with Alice]
Alice: Is that your girlfriend?
Mikaela Banes: EX!

Sam Witwicky: I love it when you say "camshafts." Whisper it to me.
Mikaela Banes: Camshafts.

Mikaela Banes: Hey, Bones, you hungry?

Leo Spitz: [breaking down during the assault by the Decepticons] Oh, God. Please, God! Please...!
Mikaela Banes: Leo, stop freaking out, stop freaking out.
Agent Simmons: Shut this guy up, huh?
Leo Spitz: Please, just let me live, just let me live!
Mikaela Banes: Shut up and let him drive!
Sam Witwicky: Just stop screaming...
Agent Simmons: All right, that's it!
[tases Leo, rendering him unconscious]
Agent Simmons: I can't take that guy anymore.

[Mikaela discovers Wheelie and captures him]
Wheelie: Is that the best you got, huh? Is that the best you can do?
Mikaela Banes: What are you doing here, you little freak?
[she grabs a blowtorch, and burns Wheelie's right eye off]
Wheelie: That's my eye, you crazy bitch!
[clips a blue eye over his injured one as a replacement]
Mikaela Banes: You gonna talk now?
Wheelie: I seek knowledge from the Cube. The Fallen demands me!
Mikaela Banes: What knowledge?
Wheelie: You got the shard, I need the shard. Give me the shard. I need the shard. They're gonna whack me! I'm gonna be dead with that shard!
[Mikaela toys with Wheelie's good eye with the blowtorch]
Wheelie: Easy, Warrior Goddess, I'm just a little salvage-scrap drone!
Mikaela Banes: Then I'm your worst nightmare!
Wheelie: Hey, hey, hey!
[Mikaela grabs Wheelie and stuffs him in a box]

Ticket Agent: And have any strangers given you anything suspicious to carry on today?
Wheelie: [muffled, inside a box] Yeah, a live bomb! Tick, tick, tick...
[Mikaela slams her foot on the box]
Mikaela Banes: No.

Sam Witwicky: [about the kiss from Alice] You ever had your stomach tongued by a mountain ox with a five-foot tongue? It's fun for me, okay, Mikaela? And it smelled like... Like diesel! Like a diesel-y tinge to it!
Mikaela Banes: You're such a little girl!

Major Lennox: [trying to revive Sam] Stay back! Mikaela, stay back!
Mikaela Banes: Fucking do something!

Mikaela Banes: [to Wheelie] I'm sorry, I'm so sorry about your eye. But if you're a good boy, then I'm not gonna put out your other eye. I'm not gonna hurt you. Just tell me what these symbols are, please...
Wheelie: [examines the documents] Oh... oh, I know that, that's the language of the Primes! I don't read it, but these guys... Where the frick did you find photos of these guys?
Sam Witwicky: Is this them?
Wheelie: Yeah! Seekers, pal! Oldest of the old! They've been here for thousands of years, looking for something. I don't know what, nobody tells me nothing. But they'll translate those symbols for you. And I know where to find them!

Mikaela Banes: You're the best thing that ever happened to me.
Sam Witwicky: And?
Mikaela Banes: I'd do anything for you.
Mikaela Banes: And?
Judy Witwicky: [watching intently] He's about to say the L-word?
Ron Witwicky: [impatient] Come on, kiddo.
Sam Witwicky: I... adore you.

Wheelie: I will have so many Decepticons on your butt!
Mikaela Banes: [brings out blowtorch] Hey, behave!
Sam Witwicky: What is it, a Decepticon?
Mikaela Banes: Yeah.
Sam Witwicky: And you're training him?
Mikaela Banes: I'm trying to.
Agent Simmons: I spent my whole adult life combing the planet for aliens, and you're carrying around one in your purse like a little Chihuahua.
Wheelie: Huh? Do you want a throwdown, you pubic 'fro-head?

Leo Spitz: That's it! No mas! I'm not going anywhere, all right? And you guys are crazy! You don't even know where you're going! I'm staying! Who's with me, huh?
[no response]
Leo Spitz: Viva la revolution!
Mikaela Banes: Good luck, Leo.
Sam Witwicky: Enjoy the heat!
Agent Simmons: You're better off staying, you're slowing down the mission. I give you twenty minutes before the vultures start pecking at you like lunch meat! Try swallowing your tongue, go out quickly. End it with dignity.
[Everyone gets in the car and leaves]
Leo Spitz: Wait, wait, wait! Don't leave me with this old-ass plane... WAIT!
[runs after the convoy]

Mikaela Banes: You live with your momma?
Agent Simmons: No, my momma lives with me. There's a big difference.

Mikaela Banes: Guys always run when you say it first.
Sam Witwicky: Yeah, well, so do girls. Especially, girls like you with options.
Mikaela Banes: So this is all part of your elaborate plan to keep me interested?
Sam Witwicky: Can be.
Mikaela Banes: Ain't those working?


Transformers (2007)
[Bumblebee, with Sam and Mikaela inside, is being chased by Barricade]
Mikaela: Oh, God! We're gonna die! We're gonna die!
Sam Witwicky: No, we're not. No, we're not gonna die. Trust me. He's a kick-ass driver!
[Bumblebee heads towards a wall]
Sam Witwicky: [high-pitched scream] Oh, my God! No! We're gonna die!

Agent Simmons: Last night at the station, you told the officer your car transformed. Enlighten me.
Sam Witwicky: Well, here's what I said, okay? 'Cause this is a total misunderstanding that my car had been stolen...
Agent Simmons: Really?
Sam Witwicky: ...from me, from my home, but it's fine now because it's back! It came back!
Mikaela: Well, not by itself.
Sam Witwicky: Well, no.
Mikaela: Because cars don't do that because that would be crazy.
[everyone laughs]
Agent Simmons: So what do you kids know about aliens, huh?
[laughing stops]

Captain Lennox: Sam! Where's the Cube?
Sam Witwicky: Right there.
Captain Lennox: Okay. Epps, get those Black Hawks here!
[sees a building]
Captain Lennox: That building. Okay.
Sam Witwicky: What?
Captain Lennox: All right, I can't leave my guys back there, so here, take this flare.
[hands him the flare and the All Spark]
Captain Lennox: Okay, there's a tall, white building with statues on top. Go to the roof. Set the flare.
Sam Witwicky: No.
Captain Lennox: Signal the chopper and set the flare.
Sam Witwicky: No, no. I can't do this!
Captain Lennox: [grabs him] Listen to me! You're a soldier now! All right? I need you to take this Cube. Get it into military hands while we hold them off, or a lot of people are gonna die.
[to Mikaela]
Captain Lennox: You got to go. You got to go.
Mikaela: No, I'm not leaving.
Captain Lennox: You need to go. Go.
Mikaela: No, I'm not leaving till I get Bumblebee out of here, okay?
USAF Master Sgt. Epps: [into radio] Army Black Hawk requested. Immediate evac for civilian boy with precious cargo. Headed to rooftop marked by flare.
Ironhide: Sam, we will protect you.
Sam Witwicky: [breathing heavily] Okay.

[Bumblebee drives Sam and Mikaela through a tunnel]
Mikaela: [in the back seat] This car's a pretty good driver.
Sam Witwicky: [in the passenger seat] Yeah.
[looks at the empty driver's seat]
Sam Witwicky: Why don't you go sit on that seat there?
Mikaela: I'm not gonna sit on that seat. He's driving.
Sam Witwicky: Yeah. You're right. You know, maybe you should sit on my lap.
Mikaela: Why?
Sam Witwicky: Well, I have the only seat belt here. Safety first.
Mikaela: Yeah. Right.
[Mikaela moves from the back seat to Sam's lap]
Sam Witwicky: See? That's better.
Mikaela: You know, that seat belt thing was a pretty smooth move.
Sam Witwicky: Thank you.

Trent: Why doesn't my little bunny hop in the back seat?
Mikaela: God, I can't even tell you how much I'm not your little bunny.
[walks off]
Trent: [cocky] Okay. You'll call me.

Mikaela: Why are you here?
Optimus Prime: We are here looking for the All Spark. And we must find it before Megatron.
Sam Witwicky: Mega-what?
[Prime projects a holographic view of Cybertron]
Optimus Prime: Our planet was once a powerful empire, peaceful and just, until we were betrayed by Megatron, leader of the Decepticons. All who defied them were destroyed. Our war finally consumed the planet, and the All Spark was lost to the stars. Megatron followed it to Earth, where Captain Witwicky found him...
Sam Witwicky: My grandfather.
Optimus Prime: It was an accident that intertwined our fates.
[Captain Witwicky discovers Megatron in the ice]
Optimus Prime: Megatron crash-landed before he could retrieve the Cube.
[the Captain fiddles with Megatron's gears, causing a bright light to strike him... ]
Optimus Prime: He accidentally activated his navigation system. The coordinates to the Cube's location on Earth were imprinted on his glasses.
Sam Witwicky: How did you know about his glasses?
Optimus Prime: eBay.
Sam Witwicky: eBay...
Ratchet: If the Decepticons find the All Spark, they will use its power to transform Earth's machines and build a new army.
Optimus Prime: And the human race will be extinguished. Sam Witwicky, you hold the key to Earth's survival.
Mikaela: Please tell me that you have those glasses?

Sam Witwicky: Where's my car?
Tom Banachek: Son, listen to me very carefully. People could die here. We need to know everything you know, and we need to know it right now.
Sam Witwicky: Okay... But first I'll take my car, my parents - maybe you should write that down. Oh, and her juvie record. That's gotta be gone. Like, forever.
Tom Banachek: [exhales] Come with me. We'll talk about your car.
Mikaela: [to Sam] Thank you.
Sam Witwicky: Sure.
Agent Simmons: [deep sigh] The man's an extortionist.

Mikaela: [after Sam has tripped on his mother's bike] That was, uh... that was really awesome.
Sam Witwicky: Felt awesome.
Mikaela: Are you okay?
Sam Witwicky: No, I'm not okay alright? I'm losin' my mind a little bit. Gettin' chased by my car right now, gotta go!

Mikaela: Sam, wait! No matter what happens, I'm really glad I got in that car with you.

Mikaela: Remember those cars my dad used to teach me to fix? Well, they weren't always his.

Optimus Prime: Are you Samuel James Witwicky, descendent of Archibald Witwicky?
Mikaela: They know your name!
Sam Witwicky: Yeah.
Optimus Prime: My name is Optimus Prime. We are Autonomous Robotic Organisms from the planet Cybertron.
Ratchet: But you can call us "Autobots", for short.

Mikaela: I'll drive, you shoot!

Agent Simmons: I'm gonna lock you up forever!
Mikaela: [to Sam] Oh God, you know what? Don't listen to him, he's just pissy because he has to get back to guarding the mall.
Agent Simmons: You in the training bra, do not test me!

[trying to escape Barricade, Sam tackles Mikaela off her bike]
Mikaela: What is your problem, Sam?
Sam Witwicky: Okay, there's a monster, it just attacked me!
[Barricade stomps after them]
Sam Witwicky: Here it comes!

Mikaela: You got a high rise double pump carburetor. That's... that's pretty impressive, Sam.
Sam Witwicky: Double pump?
Mikaela: It squirts the fuel in so you can go faster.
Sam Witwicky: Oh... I like to go faster.

Sam Witwicky: [looking up at Bumblebee] Can you talk?
Bumblebee: [through his radio] "XM Satellite One"..."Digital Cable brings you"..."Columbia Broadcasting System"...
Sam Witwicky: So, you... so you talk through the radio?
Bumblebee: [clapping his hands] "Thank you, you're beautiful! You're wonderful, you're wonderful."
Sam Witwicky: So what was that last night? What was that?
Bumblebee: [pointing skywards] "Message from Starfleet, Captain"..."Throughout the inanimate vastness of space"..."And angels will rain down like visitors from Heaven! Hallelujah!"
Mikaela: Visitors from heaven... so you're, like, an alien?
[Bumblebee points a finger at her and nods, and converts into a Camaro]
Bumblebee: "Any more questions you want to ask?"
Sam Witwicky: He wants us to get in the car.
Mikaela: [laughing nervously] And go where?
Sam Witwicky: Fifty years from now, when you're looking back at your life, don't you want to be able to say you had the guts to get in the car?

[Bumblebee fires a shot straight into Devastator's chest]
Mikaela: Nice shot!

Mikaela: You know what I don't understand?
Sam Witwicky: What?
Mikaela: If he's like, this super-advanced robot, why does he transform into this piece-of-crap Camaro?

[Bumblebee approaches Sam and Mikaela]
Mikaela: What is it?
Sam Witwicky: It's a robot. You know, like a super advanced robot. It's probably Japanese. Yeah, it's definitely Japanese.
[He slowly walks towards Bumblebee]
Mikaela: [alarmed] What are you doing?
Sam Witwicky: I don't think it wants to hurt us. He would've done that already.
Mikaela: Really? Well, do you speak robot? Because they just had, like, a giant droid death match!

Judy Witwicky: Sam, we heard you talking to someone...
Sam Witwicky: Mom, I...
[Sam's parents fall silent and stare at Mikaela]
Mikaela: Hi, I'm Mikaela. I'm a... I'm a friend of Sam's.
[Judy starts giggling and chucks Sam on the shoulder]
Judy Witwicky: Gosh, you're gorgeous!
[turns to Ron]
Judy Witwicky: Isn't that the prettiest girl?
Sam Witwicky: She can hear you talking, Mom.

Sam Witwicky: What is Sector 7? Answer me!
Agent Simmons: I ask the questions round here, not you, young man!
Mikaela: All right, how did you know about the aliens?
Sam Witwicky: Where did you take my parents?
Agent Simmons: I am not at liberty to discuss...
[Sam snatches his badge away]
Agent Simmons: Hey, you touch me, that's a federal offense!
Sam Witwicky: [holding it up] "Do whatever you want and get away with it" badge, right?
Agent Simmons: Brave now, all of a sudden with his big alien friends standing over there.

Mikaela: [to Sam] You are the strangest boy I have ever met!

[Sam makes Mikaela talk to his mother]
Mikaela: [to Sam, smiling] Your mom's really nice.

[Sam gives Mikaela a ride home]
Mikaela: [looking out the window] I can't believe that I'm here right now.
Sam Witwicky: You can duck down if you want. I mean, it won't hurt my feelings.
Mikaela: Oh, no no no. I didn't mean here with you. I just meant here, like, in this situation. The same situation that I'm always in. 'Cause, I don't know, I guess I just have a weakness for hot guys, for tight abs and really big arms.
Sam Witwicky: Big arms?
[swallows]
Sam Witwicky: Well, there's a couple new additions in the car. Like, I just put that light there...
[points back, and flexes his arm muscle]
Sam Witwicky: ...and that disco ball...
[he turns his hand forward, still flexing]
Sam Witwicky: ...and so the light reflects off the disco ball.
[points back and forth, flexing his arm all the while]


Transformers: The Game (2007) (VG)
Sam Witwicky: [as Bumblebee transforms in front of him] That's my...Car?
Mikaela Banes: Oh, cool, where can I get one like that?
