Fun Stuff

From "The Transformers: Megatron's Master Plan: Part 2 (#2.16)" (1985)
[now that the Autobots are gone, the Decepticons seize control of the city, ruthlessly enslaving the residents. The people are forced into hard labor at refineries, power plants and mines, working to exhaustion in producing energon cubes, while the Decepticons oversee them. Spike, Sparkplug, Chip, the mayor and Berger are imprisoned in a power plant, watched by Soundwave, their hands are chained with electric handcuffs]
Soundwave: Increase efficiency or be terminated!
[Soundwave shoots over the workers' heads]
Chip Chase: Those generators never worked so hard before.
Spike Witwickey: Generators? What about us?
Mayor: [pants heavily while working] Megatron was true to his word. He rewarded Berger with everything... he deserved.
[the mayor glances at Berger, who is forced to work like the other captives, clearly not used to hard labor. One of Berger's ex-gaurds passes by, carrying energon cube on his back, glaring at his former employer with hatred]
Berger's Guard: What's the matter, traitor? Real work's something new to you?
Chip Chase: Berger sure doesn't have many friends in these ranks.
Spike Witwickey: Still, I can't forget how he tried to help me...
