Transformers (2007)
Ironhide: Why are we fighting to save the humans? They're a primitive and violent race.
Optimus Prime: Were we so different? They're a young species. They have much to learn. But I've seen goodness in them. Freedom is the right of all sentient beings. You all know there's only one way to end this war: we must destroy the Cube. If all else fails, I will unite it with the spark in my chest.
Ratchet: That's suicide! The Cube is raw power, it could destroy you both!
Optimus Prime: A necessary sacrifice to bring peace to this planet. We cannot let the humans pay for our mistakes. It's been an honor serving with you all.

Optimus Prime: My weapons specialist: Ironhide.
Ironhide: [drawing his guns] You feelin' lucky, punk?
Optimus Prime: Easy, Ironhide...
Ironhide: [retracts his guns] Just kidding. I just wanted to show him my cannons.

USAF Master Sgt. Epps: [radioing to a lone F-22 flying overhead] Raptor, Raptor do you copy? We have your visual. Green smoke is the mark. Provide air cover and vector Black Hawks for extraction.
[guided by the smoke, the F-22 heads for the group, but there's no answer... ]
Ironhide: [transforms] It's Starscream!
USAF Master Sgt. Epps: Please tell me you copy...
Ironhide: Back up! Take cover! Bumblebee...!
[With Bumblebee's help, Ironhide grabs a van and lift it up as a shield as the Raptor comes closer]
Captain Lennox: No, no, no, no... MOVE!
Ironhide: Back up! Back up!
Captain Lennox: RETREAT! FALL BACK!
Ironhide: INCOMING!
[the Raptor strafes the ground, blowing up the truck and blasting everyone to the ground]
Captain Lennox: What the hell was that?
USAF Master Sgt. Epps: What are you talking about?
Captain Lennox: What do you mean, what am I talking about? They shot at us!
USAF Master Sgt. Epps: F-22 pilots would never fly below buildings! That's alien... that ain't friendly!

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.

Ironhide: You have a rodent infestation.
Sam Witwicky: A what?
Ironhide: [aiming cannons at Mojo] Shall I terminate?
Sam Witwicky: No! No! This is a chihuahua. We love chihuahuas.
Ironhide: He's leaked lubricants all over my foot! Hmmph!
Sam Witwicky: He peed on you? Bad Mojo! Bad!
Ironhide: Bad Mojo! Ugh, my foot's gonna rust...

[Ratchet runs into power lines, shocking him and causing a tremor throughout the neighborhood]
Ron Witwicky: [crawling under a table] Earthquake! Earthquake! Judy, get under the table!
Judy Witwicky: How did you get over there so fast?
[Outside, a dazed Ratchet staggers to his feet]
Ratchet: Wow... that was tingly! You gotta try that!
Ironhide: [sarcastic] Yeah, that looks fun...

Ironhide: Prime... we couldn't save him.
[hands him Jazz's remains]
Optimus Prime: Oh, Jazz... We lost a great comrade, but gained new ones. Thank you, all of you. You honor us with your bravery.

Ironhide: [drawing his guns] The parents are very irritating...
Ratchet: [trying to calm him] Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah...
Ironhide: Can I take them out?
Optimus Prime: Ironhide, you know we don't harm humans! What is with you?
Ironhide: Well, I'm just saying we could. It's an option.

Ironhide: Keep moving, Sam! Don't stop!

[Mojo wets Ironhide's foot]
Ironhide: Ewww, wet wet wet wet wet...!

Ironhide: Cover fire!


"The Transformers: Heavy Metal War (#1.14)" (1984)
[as Megatron approaches the Autobots' headquarters, Ironhide's sensors warn of his presence]
Ironhide: Huh? Those signals spell trouble, and I'm talkin' Decepticons!
Sparkplug Witwicky: Can you make out how many, Spike?
Spike Witwicky: Looks like just one, Dad.
[Megatron appears in sight]
Spike Witwicky: One's one too many when it's Megatron!

Optimus Prime: Since when have you decided to make yourself a target without fighting back, Megatron?
[Optimus shoots at Megatron. Megatron deftly dodges the shots without firing back]
Megatron: I have come to talk, not fight, Optimus Prime.
Optimus Prime: Autobots, hold your fire! Very well. Speak, Megatron.
Megatron: I come about a matter of Cybertron law, Optimus Prime. Our war has gone on for millions of years, Decepticons fighting Autobots, in which opposing leaders - you and I, Optimus Prime - may do battle. The loser must exile himself and his army to deep space for eternity. The winner may stay where he chooses. Do you have the courage for that?
Cliffjumper: I don't trust him, Optimus.
Wheeljack: But it would end the war.
Ironhide: And you can take him, Optimus. You're the best!
Optimus Prime: Also, it is the law of our native planet. Very well, I accept the challenge.
Megatron: [smiling slyly] Somehow I felt you would, Optimus Prime. You have such a strong sense of honour.
[Megatron flies back to Deceptions' base]

[the Autobots arrive to the battle site - large, wide hollow in the barren ground, shaped like arena]
Optimus Prime: Autobots, transform!
[the Autobots transform back]
Ironhide: Okay, we're here! Where's the opposition?
Chip Chase: [pointing to the sky] That answer your question, Ironhide?
[the Decepticons arrive, landing on the ground]
Megatron: [raises his hand in mocking welcome gesture] Hail Optimus Prime, and welcome to defeat!
Optimus Prime: Defeat, Megatron? But our battle has not yet begun!
Megatron: As soon as our respective armies take their places, we shall correct that oversight.
[the Decepticons sit down at the edge of the arena]
Optimus Prime: Remember the law, Megatron. This battle is between you and me, alone and unaided.
[the Autobots, Spike and Sparkplug go down to the arena. Ironhide gives Chip a lift]
Chip Chase: Doesn't this remind you of the gladiatorial combats in ancient Rome?
Ironhide: Maybe it would, if I knew what you were talking about.
Chip Chase: [smiles] It's Earth history, Ironhide. Skip it.
[Soundwave opens his chest-lid, releasing Ravage and Laserbeak. As Ravage starts snarling menacingly, Soundwave pets him]

[Optimus Prime, severely damaged, strains to keep figthing while the Autobots encourage him]
Chip Chase: Optimus Prime!
Spike Witwicky: Get up, Optimus!
Sparkplug Witwicky: You can beat him, Optimus!
[Optimus Prime shoots and hits Megatron. The Autobots cheer for him]
Ironhide: Way to go, Prime! You're not down yet!
[Optimus Prime charges at Megatron, grabbing him by the waist. Megatron flies upward, dragging Optimus Prime with him, laughing viciously]
Megatron: [laughing] You cannot blast what you cannot see!
[flashes of light burst out of Megatron's chest, blinding Optimus Prime temporarily, forcing him to let go of his opponent. Optimus Prime falls to the ground with heavy thud, to the dismay of the Autobots, who exclaim "Oh no!". Before he can recover, Megatron uses another of his borrowed weapons]
Megatron: [laughing] Nor what you cannot hear!
[Megatron unleashes high-frequency soundwaves. Optimus Prime drops his gun and tries to cover his ears from the deafening sound, writhing in agony on his knees]
Starscream: [to Skywarp] Reflector and Thundercracker must be proud, or rather their power chip rectifiers must be...
[Megatron lands and shoots Optimus Prime in the back. Optimus Prime collapses]
Megatron: You were good, Optimus Prime, but not good enough to fight Megatron! And so the battle ends!
[Megatron shoots Optimus Prime, who is so damaged that cannot fight anymore]

[as the Autobots return to their base, Spike notices the battle between Devastator and the Dinobots]
Spike Witwicky: [points at Devastator] Hey... check that out! What is it?
[Devastator advances toward the Dinobots. Grimlock charges and sinks his fangs into Devastator's right hand, but Devastator is unaffected, and throws Grimlock away with slight move. Grimlock lands heavily on his back. Snarl growls and charges, hitting Devastator's right leg with his mighty tail - again, Devastator is not damaged. Devastator kicks at Snarl, sending him into the lava-filled ravine. Snarl manages to grab the edge of the ravine and pulls himself out]
Ironhide: Our Dino-buddies! We gotta help!
Optimus Prime: No, Ironhide. Remember the law.
[the Autobots enter their base, leaving the Dinobots to fight Devastator]

[Ratchet and Wheeljack fix Optimus Prime]
Ironhide: Uhh... sorry about that.
Ratchet: [smiles, closing Optimus Prime's chest-lid] There! Optimus is as good as the day he rolled off the mechanical line. Better, even.
Wheeljack: But I still don't understand where Megatron got enough strength to whip him.
Chip Chase: I do! I just had Teletraan 1 do an energy scan on Optimus' damaged parts, and... see for yourselves!
[Teletraan sounds its alarm. On its main screen appear images of the Decepticons, alternating rapidly]
Wheeljack: Of course! Somehow Megatron used the powers of all the other Decepticons!
Ironhide: Then... then Megatron cheated and we can ignore the agreement with him! Right, Optimus?
Optimus Prime: That is affirmative. Autobots, the time has come to fight back!
[the Autobots cheer, eager to pay their enemies back]

[outside, the Dinobots still cannot overcome Devastator. The Decepticons stand nearby, watching the unequal battle]
Devastator: Nothing defeats the Devastator! Nothing!
Giant Autobot: Nothing, little one? Ha-ha-ha!
[Devastator turns back. He and the other Decepticons are shocked to see giant Autobot, bigger than Devastator - actually, a hologram projected by Hound]
Giant Autobot: [folds his arms, scorning Devastator] What would you say about me? Ha-ha-ha!
Optimus Prime: Now! Before he realizes what is happening...
[Optimus Prime shoots Devastator, hits him so severely that Devastator is forced to separate into the six individual Constructicons. Now that the odds are again in their favor, the Dinobots open heavy fire on the Constructicons, forcing them to fall into the ravine. The Constructicons drown in the lava. Hound shuts off the hologram of the giant Autobot - only now the Decepticons understand that they've been had]
Megatron: [glaring at Starscream, as if it was his fault] The giant Autobot was a holographic illusion! It wasn't real!
Optimus Prime: No! But we are!
[the Autobots attack the Decepticons, hitting them sverely. The Decepticons are unable to fight back because Megatron still has their power chip rectifiers in his possession]
Ironhide: Nail 'em, guys! Turn 'em to scrap!
[the Decepticons retreat and fall into the ravine, drowning in the lava. Only Megatron is left]
Optimus Prime: No, Megatron! You will not have to fight all Autobot powers at once - just me!
[Megatron raises his arm-cannon, but too late. Optimus Prime shoots and hits Megatron severely, sending him into the ravine. Megatron drowns in the lava. His hand remains above the lava surface, then it also disappears]

Megatron: It is over! Optimus Prime has been defeated! All Autobots must exile themselves to deeper space!
[the Autobots rush to help Optimus Prime]
Spike Witwicky: Oh... I can't believe it.
Chip Chase: Optimus Prime... beaten by Megatron?
[Optimus Prime groans in pain]
Spike Witwicky: He's functional... but barely.
Optimus Prime: Uhhh... my fault. Underestimated Megatron. Never suspected he had so many powers. I was not prepared...
Ironhide: [furiously] Well, I'm prepared - to knock those Decepti-bums all the way back to Cybertron!
[the other Autobots exclaim in approval]
Optimus Prime: [getting on his feet] No! Megatron has beaten me according to Cybertron law. To violate that law would destroy our honour. We will comply and leave this Earth forever.
Optimus Prime: As you command, Optimus.
Ratchet: [to Wheeljack] We'll need Teletraan 1 to diagnose all this damage.
Wheeljack: Optimus, can you transform?
Optimus Prime: I-I'll try.
[straining in pain, Optimus Prime transforms into truck. The other Autobots transform into vehicles]
Huffer: Maybe I can help Optimus save some of his strength on the way back...
[Huffer tranforms into vehicle mode]
Huffer: Let me take that load, Optimus.
Optimus Prime: You're a true friend, Huffer.
[Optimus Prime disengages from his trailer, and Huffer takes it]
Optimus Prime: Autobots, roll out! Perhaps for the last time...
Megatron: We will accompany them back to their headquarters to make certain "noble" Optimus Prime keeps his word.
[the Decepticons fly above the Autobots' line]


Transformers: Dark of the Moon (2011)
Sam Witwicky: [to Lennox] We gotta get Sentinel outta here, he is the key to all this...
Sentinel Prime: Indeed I am! What you must realize my Autobot brothers, is we were never going to win the war! For the sake of our planet's survival, a deal had to be made... with Megatron!
[blasts Ironhide]
Lennox: GET BACK!
Ironhide: [rusting away] Sentinel... what have you done?
Sentinel Prime: [to Ironhide] I hereby discharge you from duty!
[shoots Ironhide again]

Que: Ah, good, you're here. My name's Que. I do hope you have answers for him. I've never seen him so upset!
Lennox: Optimus, you remember Charlotte Mearing, our director of National Intelligence?
[Optimus stays in truck mode]
Dino: He's in a bad mood. He's not talking to anybody today.
Charlotte Mearing: What is this, the silent treatment?
Ironhide: We've seen that and this is not that.
Que: Definitely not!
Ironhide: This is worse. Prime, make something of yourself!
[bangs fist on top of Optimus's cab, Optimus transforms]
Ironhide: He's pissed.
Optimus Prime: [pounds the ground] You lied to us! Everything humans know of our planet we were told had all been shared!
[points to component]
Optimus Prime: So why was this found in human possession?

[Ironhide smashes into Crankcase and Crowbar]
Ironhide: Is there a problem?

[Ironhide and Sideswipe vs Crankcase and Hatchet]
Sideswipe: Whoa, we got us a little Mexican standoff!
Ironhide: Weapons down!
Sideswipe: And we'll let you escape with your dignity!

Que: This gun is the perfect invention, Ironhide!
Ironhide: Right.

Ironhide: Decepticon punk!
[sticks Crankcase's spear through his own head and kicks him into a building]
Ironhide: Class dismissed.

[the Autobots and NEST gather around to reawaken Sentinel Prime]
Lennox: [to Mearing] That's the Matrix of Leadership, the only thing in the Universe that can repower a Transformer's spark.
Optimus Prime: Let us begin... Sentinel Prime, we bid you return.
[drives the Matrix into Sentinel's chest, reviving him... Sentinel grabs Optimus in a deadlock]
Lennox: Hold your fire!
Optimus Prime: Stop! Sentinel, it is I, Optimus Prime!
Ironhide: You are home, Sentinel.
Ratchet: There is nothing to fear.


Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen (2009)
Ironhide: [to a captured Demolishor] Punk-ass Decepticon!
Optimus Prime: Any last words?
Wheelbot: This is not your planet to rule! The Fallen shall rise again!
Chief Master Sergeant Epps: [puzzled] That did not sound good.
Optimus Prime: Not today.
[blasts Wheelbot in the head]

Ratchet: Ironhide, we should leave this planet...
Ironhide: That's not what Optimus would want.

[sensing Demolishor]
Ironhide: He's here. I smell him.

[surrounded by soldiers]
Sideswipe: What is the meaning of this?
Ironhide: You dare point a weapon at ME? You want a piece of me? I WILL TEAR YOU APART!

[Autobot reinforcements arrive at the forest fight]
Ironhide: Autobots, attack!
Ratchet: Bumblebee, get them out of here!

Ironhide: Get up, Prime!
Jetfire: Oh, no!


"The Transformers: Dinobot Island: Part 2 (#2.4)" (1985)
[the Autobots arrive where the first time-warp was detected. Sideswipe uses his hand drills to release Spike and Bumblebee from the wrecked building]
Bumblebee: About time you guys showed up!
Ironhide: What about Spike? Is he...
Spike Witwicky: Not a scratch, Ironhide, though I can't say the same for Bumblebee. He protected me with his body. He's a real hero!
Bumblebee: [meekly] Aw... anybody'd have done the same.

[after saving Spike and Bumblebee, the Autobots are ready to deal with the time-warp and the creatures which came though it]
Hound: Warning, Optimus Prime! The energy disturbance is directly ahead!
Ironhide: Let me get a better look and - huh?
[the Autobots watch in amazement the mammoth and its barbarian rider]
Ironhide: What are they?
Hound: New Earth-like forms?
Optimus Prime: Or old ones that entered this era through that time warp.
[Optimus points at the time-warp]
Hound: There's something on the other side of the warp... and it's coming through!
[more barbarians and mammoths emerge from the time warp. They roam the street, destroying cars and other property, scaring the people away. One of the barbarians notices jewelery store. He stops his mammoth mount near it, dismounts and examines the merchandise at the store window. $ 27,500 worth necklace catches his eye. Mumbling in incomprehensible language, he breaks the window with his club and grabs the necklace, ignoring the alarm. Examining the necklace closely, he mumbles in amazement]
Ironhide: We gotta do something, Optimus!
Optimus Prime: Agreed, but gently. Remember, those creatures are flesh and blood, not unfeeling machines like the Decepticons. Forward!
Sideswipe: [smiles, rubbing his palms] Then we'll just have to pull our punches!

[the Autobots grab hold of the three mammoths]
Optimus Prime: Huffer, Ironhide, Sideswipe! We must put the animals where they'll be safe and out of the way... and I know just the place!
[Optimus Prime transform into truck mode. The trailer back doors are opened. The Autobots shove the mammoths into Optimus' trailer]
Ironhide: All right, beasties! In ya go!
[once all the mammoths are inside the trailer, the doors are closed. Optimus moves closer to the time-warp]

[Optimus Prime stops as close as possible to the time-warp. The trailer doors are opened]
Ironhide: Come on, you walkin' sandrugs! Time to go back to your time!
[the three mammoths step outside Optimus' trailer, Ironhide directing them into the time-warp. Sideswipe shoots near the barbarians, forcing them to run back into the time-warp]
Sideswipe: Keep movin'!
Optimus Prime: That should do the trick.
[all the barbarians and mammoths enter the time-warp and disappear within it. Few moments later, the time-warp closes and vanishes, as if never existed]
Huffer: [sighs in relief] I thought they'd never leave!

[the Autobots arrive at Dinobot Island. Behind bushes, they watch the Decepticons]
Optimus Prime: If that stolen energy is taken from this area, this entire galaxy could crumble!
Ironhide: Yeah, try tellin' that to them...
[Optimus Prime and Ironhide come out. Megatron turns to face them]
Megatron: You were a fool to come here, Optimus Prime! And fools pay a heavy price!
[Megatron shoots and hits Optimus Prime. Optimus Prime collapses, but immediately recovers]
Ironhide: Prime!
Optimus Prime: I'm okay. Repair systems already compensating for damage.
Ironhide: Great! Then let's make the Decepticons Decepti-crumbs!
[Ironhide shoots at the Decepticons. Megatron and Starscream recoil, evading the shot. The other Autobots come out and open fire]
Megatron: Resist! Terminate them! Reduce them to Lithium litter!
Starscream: Attack... from the sky!
[Starscream transforms into jet, and flies. Thundercracker, Skywarp, Ramjet, Dirge and Thrust follow him, and bomb the Autobots from above. Warpath and Perceptor return fire]
Warpath: ZOWIE! WHAM! BANG! I'll blow 'em out of the blue, Perceptor! They don't call me Warpath because I'm gentle, ha-ha-ha!
[Warpath hits Thundercracker and Skywarp. Starscream shoots null ray at Warpath and Perceptor, and they both collapse]
Starscream: Boisterous clown! You won't hit anything with your circuits nullified!
Perceptor: [groans in pain] Ohh! Null ray... disrupting... electron flow!


"The Transformers: Megatron's Master Plan: Part 2 (#2.16)" (1985)
[after they were found guilty on most unfair trial and banished from earth, the Autobots are on the spacecraft, provided them by Berger, while Cosmos is flying outside the ship, believing they are on the way to Cybertron. Unknown to them, Megatron sabotaged Teleraan 1, altering the ship destination to the sun and destroying the computer's communications]
Ironhide: Are we going anywhere, Cosmos, or is this a tour of the stars?
Jazz: Lay off him, Ironhide. He didn't cause our problems.
Ironhide: You're right. Maybe we ought to take it out on the one who got us into this mess
[Ironhide clutches his fists]
Optimus Prime: I did what was necessary.
Huffer: But we lost, and the Decepticons won, and we bought a one-way ticket to nowhere!
Cliffjumper: There's still time to change our mind...
[Cliffjumper stands and rushes to the cockpit]
Optimus Prime: [muses loudly] Perhaps I did make the wrong decision... Cliffjumper, turn us around. We're going back to Earth!
Cliffjumper: [clicking the controls, then recoils in horror] The ship isn't responding!
Optimus Prime: What?
Cliffjumper: [clicking the controls, then turns to Optimus] Major malfunction. Our course is locked in!
Optimus Prime: [realizing what's wrong] They've jammed our guidance system! Hound, check our destination.
Hound: At once, Prime.
[Hound activates his sensors, then exclaims in horror]
Hound: We're targeted for... the sun!
[Hearing this, the Autobots are at panic, exclaiming "What?" "The sun?"]
Optimus Prime: [regaining his composure] Cosmos, make up with Teletraan 1.
[Cosmos activates his communication system, then calls in horror when this also fails]
Cosmos: Negative, Prime! I can't interface!

[as the Autobots' spacecraft gets closer to the sun, its metal body begin to melt due to the immense heat. The sign "BERGER INC" is burnt. Brown vapors rising from the Autobots' bodies]
Bumblebee: Hey... my circuits are overheating!
Huffer: We'll, uhh... we'll...
Hound: We'll vaporize!
Optimus Prime: Cosmos... take action!
[Cosmos also suffers the same damage from the heat]
Cosmos: Like what?
Optimus Prime: [straining to speak] If I knew, I'd do it myself!
Cosmos: [transforms to robot mode] I guess anything is better than nothing...
[Cosmos enters the spacecraft and clicks the controls]
Ironhide: Well... any luck?
[Cosmos clicks the controls, then raises his hands in despair]
Cosmos: No...
[the spaceship continues its deadly, unstoppable course into the sun]

Megatron: Decepticons, assemble for battle!
Optimus Prime: [transforms] Autobots - transform!
[the Autobots transform into robots mode, pointing their weapons]
Ironhide: And let's show 'em a little reality...
Megatron: No missing!
[the Decepticons open fire. The Autobots hesitate for a moment, then return fire. Optimus Prime shoots at Starscream, severely hits him. Starscream yells in agony and collapses]
Megatron: Keep firing! Don't leave an Autobot standing!
Ironhide: Come on, guys! Let's wrap this package of Decepticon garbage!
[Spike, Sparkplug and Chip get close to the hole in the wall]
Chip Chase: Who's winning, Spike?
Spike Witwickey: [smiles] guess...
Starscream: [struggling to his feet] It's no use... we're outnumbered.
[once again, Starscream is shot and collapses. Megatron looks back and sees that nearly all the Decepticons are down, severely damaged, unable to fight]
Megatron: We've lost the advantage!
[Megatron, as always, is the first to flee. The other Decepticons transform and follow their leader in shameful retreat]

[last lines]
Ironhide: [frees Chip of the electronic handcuffs] Uhh, there you go, Chip. Free.
Chip Chase: Huh, thanks, Ironhide! Is there anything you can't do?
[the Autobots and the ex-prisoners are gathered outside the power plant]
Mayor: If you can ever forgive us, Optimus Prime, please stay here on Earth.
Shawn Berger: [genuinely remorseful] I doubt anyone will ever forgive me, but I'll... I'll make amends. I'll... I'll disband my private army.
Sparkplug Witwicky: [sarcastically] Oh, that's real *big* of you, Berger. They all quit when they found out what a dog lunch you are!
[one of Berger's ex-guards nods in approval]
Shawn Berger: Well, um, I... I... I said I'm sorry.
Optimus Prime: You are going to face justice, and may it be kinder to you than it was to us. Autobots, transform and roll for home!
[the Autobots transform into vehicles and drive to base with their three loyal human friends]

The Transformers: The Movie (1986)
Brawn: [Decepticons ambush Autobots on board shuttle] Megatron? Decepticons!
Megatron: Die, Autobots!
Megatron: [Decepticons kill Autobots on board shuttle except Ironhide] This was almost too easy, Starscream!
Starscream: Much easier, almighty Megatron, than attacking the real threat; the Autobots' moonbase!
Megatron: You're an idiot, Starscream. When we slip by their early warning systems in their own shuttle and destroy Autobot City, the Autobots will be vanquished forever.
Ironhide: No!
Megatron: Such heroic nonsense!
[blasts Ironhide's head off, killing him]

Shockwave: Laserbeak returns, Megatron.
Megatron: Welcome, Laserbeak! Unlike some of my other warriors, you never fail me. Soundwave, play back Laserbeak's findings.
Soundwave: As you command, Megatron.
Optimus Prime: [on the playback] I want you to make a special run to Autobot City on Earth.
Ironhide: But, Prime...
Optimus Prime: Listen, Ironhide. We don't have enough energon cubes to power a full-scale assault. Ready the shuttle for launch! Now all we need is a little energon and a lot of luck.
Megatron: More than you imagine, Optimus Prime.

Optimus Prime: Ironhide, report to me at once.
Ironhide: Every time I look into a monitor Prime, my circuits sizzle. When are we going to start busting Deceptichops?
Optimus Prime: I want you to make a special run to Autobot City on Earth.
Ironhide: But, Prime!
Optimus Prime: Listen, Ironhide. We don't have enough energon cubes to power a full-scale assault. Ready the shuttle for launch!

Fire Chief: No two ways about it, I gotta take that vacation.


"The Transformers: More Than Meets the Eye: Part 3 (#1.3)" (1984)
Optimus Prime: You gave us all a pretty good scare.
Ironhide: It's been worse. I remember the time on Cybertron...

"The Transformers: Changing Gears (#2.7)" (1985)
Gears: Owww... Wouldn't you know it. Everytime I get set to lube my cable-relays something happens!
