From "The Transformers: Megatron's Master Plan: Part 2 (#2.16)" (1985)
[after hearing that the Autobots' ship was destroyed]
Spike Witwickey: The Autobots may be gone, but I still have to clear their names!
[Spike runs with the incriminating tape, intending to use it to reveal the Decepticons' trick. Sparkplug tries to stop his son, but it is too late]
Sparkplug Witwicky: Spike, Son! Don't! Spike, come back!
[hearing the commotion, Soundwave turns and sees Spike running away with the tape]
Soundwave: Laserbeak, Ravage - get him!
[Soundwave presses a switch on his left shoulder. His chest-lid opens, and Laserbeak and Ravage emerge, chasing Spike. While running, Spike's foot gets caught at projector base. He falls down and the tape drops from his hand]
Spike Witwickey: The tape!
[Laserbeak shoots and destroys the tape, while Ravage charges at Spike. At the last moment, Spike stands on his feet and jumps aside. Ravage bumps against pile of filming equipment and gets caught in it]
Shawn Berger: It is the end! Hahah! The apocalypse!
