"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!
[to the astonishment of the others, Berger rushes to help Spike]
Mayor: Berger!
[Laserbeak shoots at Spike, narrowly missing. Berger grabs microphone pole and hits Laserbeak with it. Laserbeak loses balance while flying and crashes down. Meanwhile, Ravage manages to get free and charges again at Spike. Spike turns on a projector directly at Ravage, blinding him temporarily, halting his charge. Berger approaches Spike]
Shawn Berger: Are you all right, kid?
Megatron: [approaches them] Compassion is for fools, Berger! You're going nowhere, boy!
[Starscream and Soundwave pick Sparkplug and Chip]
Spike Witwickey: Megatron, please, don't hurt them...
Megatron: [teasing] And why should I want to hurt them? Healthy slaves can do much more work. And you, Berger, do you still want your reward?
Shawn Berger: Yes!
Megatron: Then you shall have it. Everything that you've earned...
[Megatron laughs viciously]

[At the power plant]
Chip Chase: Spike, I've got to get to Autobot Headquarters. Maybe I can get Teletraan to help us out of this fix.
Spike Witwickey: [smiles] Hmm, it's worth a try. I'll give you some cover.
[Spike waits till Soundwave looks in different direction, then he leaves his post. Hiding behind machinery, Spike notices a cart loaded with energon cubes. Spike runs to the cart and slams his shoulder against it. The cart rolls away, rapidly accelerating, toward Rumble. Rumble, who is carrying energon cube, notices the cart too late. The cart slams into Rumble with great force, the energon cubes are thrown away from it, and without slowing - it continues its course with Rumble at the front, scaring the workers away]
Spike Witwickey: Roll, Chip! Roll!
[Chip rolls his wheelchair toward the exit. The cart, caught in its momentum, smashes Rumble against machinery. The impact causes severe damage. Rumble, unable to move away from the damaged console, groans in agony as he suffers electric shock of thousands volts. Megatron approaches as he hears the commotion]
Megatron: Shut off the power!
[one of the prisoners turns off the main power switch. The room is engulfed with darkness. At last Rumble manages to move away from the damaged machinery. Chip reaches the door, unfortunately it is protected with invisible knee-high infra-red beam. As Chip crosses the beam, the alarm is activated. Chip does not linger, but rolls outside as fast as he can. Hearing the alarm, Soundwave looks through the window and notices Chip]
Soundwave: Megatron! Immobilized human escapes.
[the lights are back. The prisoners cover their eyes, momentarily blinded by the sudden burst of light]
Megatron: He is harmless!
[Megatron laughs viciously]
Megatron: Thrust! Bring him back!
[Thrust nods. He steps outside, transforms to airplane and flies above the plant. While Chip hides around the corner of the building, he sees Ramjet standing near a truck whose trailer doors are open, with digonal board leaning on its edge for loading. A worker pushes cart full of crates on the board into the truck. As Ramjet and the worker walk away, Chip seizes the opportunity, rolling his wheelchair on the board into the truck trailer. He hides inside the trailer near a crack in its wall]
Chip Chase: It's not an Autobot, but it'll have to do.
[the worker returns. He puts the board inside the truck, closes the doors and drives away. Chip looks through the crack till he sees gas station with huge sign "STAN'S"]
Chip Chase: That's it!
[the driver stops the truck at the station. Looking at the side mirror, he is puzzled to see Chip exiting from the trailer]
Chip Chase: [waving to the driver] That's my stop, thanks!

[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...
[a shot, fired by Soundwave, passes between Spike and Chip, narrowly misses them. They recoil in horror]
Soundwave: Less talk and more work.

[back at the power plant]
Chip Chase: [whimpering] I should never have gone to Autobot Headquarters... now Teletraan is destroyed.
Spike Witwickey: Hey, Chip, you tried.
[Spike places his hand consolingly on his friend's shoulder]
Spike Witwickey: Teletraan wouldn't have been much help without the Autobots, anyway.
[Soundwave shoots above Chip and Spike's heads, frightening them]
Soundwave: Work!
Chip Chase: [back to work] Now there's no hope at all.

[Megatron and Starscream are touring the power plant]
Megatron: Have you ever seen so much energy, Starscream?
[Soundwave's sensors detect danger]
Soundwave: Warning! Strong energy transmissions detected.
Megatron: [impatiently] Of course, from these generators, Soundwave!
Soundwave: Negative, Megatron. From primitive jet engines.
[an Air Force group heads for the power plant. Hearing Soundwave, the prisoners are filled with hope for rescue]
Sparkplug Witwicky: [excitedly] Jet engines?
Megatron: Starscream, go and...
Starscream: I anticipated your order, Megatron!
[Starscream transforms into airplane and breaks through the ceiling]
Starscream: Decepticons, transform!
[Blitzwing, Thrust, Dirge, Ramjet, Thundercracker and Skywarp transform and join Starscream in attack formation. As the Air Force closes in, the Decepticons jets open fire, destroying several of the approaching jets. The surviving aircrafts retreat, without having fired even one single shot at the Decepticons during the battle]
Starscream: [yelling after the retreating aircrafts] Any further rescue attempts... will result in the termination of this city!

Judy Witwicky: Hello? I mean, bon soir!

Judy Witwicky: What? Who is this?
Soundwave: Where is the boy?
Judy Witwicky: For Pete's sakes, I'm not impressed with your perverted mouth-breathing!
[hangs up]

Galloway: Now, what do we know so far? We know that the enemy leader - classified NBE-1, aka Megatron - is rusting in peace at the bottom of the Laurentian Abyss, surrounded by sophisticated detection nets AND full-time submarine surveillance. We also know that the only remaining piece of your alien All Spark is locked in an electromagnetic vault, here on one of the most secure naval bases in the world...
Soundwave: Decepticons: we have located the shard.

Starscream: Starscream in pursuit.

Transformers: Dark of the Moon (2011)
Soundwave: Soundwave reporting, Lord Megatron.
Megatron: And what news from your little assassin?
Laserbeak: Autobots have taken the bait! They've discovered the Ark, and returned with its cargo!
Megatron: You did me a great honour, tracking that ship to the moon. Your human collaborators have served their purpose, Soundwave. It's time to eliminate loose ends.
[Laserbeak flies away]
Soundwave: Laserbeak: kill them all.
Laserbeak: With pleasure!

Dylan: Prisoners? You're keeping prisoners?
Soundwave: Yeesss...
Dylan: You need to teach them about respect! This was all business, but now it's all personal, do you understand me?
Soundwave: [laughs] I understand. No prisoners, only trophies!
Que: Bee, I think they're going to kill us!

Soundwave: [grabs Que] You! Your time is up!
Que: Wait! We surrendered! We're your prisoners! Can't we talk this out? We're all a bunch of good chaps! We mean you no...
[Barricade shoots Que]
Que: What'd you do that for...?
[Soundwave shoots Que, killing him]
Bumblebee: Goodbye, my oldest friend.

Soundwave: [grabs Carly] You're mine!

Megatron: More than you imagine, Optimus Prime.

Starscream: [Megatron has been gravely injured in his fight with Optimus Prime] How do you feel, mighty Megatron?

Soundwave: As you command, Megatron.
[Astrotrain transforms into his train mode]
Starscream: [the last of the Decepticons load into Astrotrain] Astrotrain, take off!

[Soundwave notices that the Sky Platform is falling onto the Decepticons' headquarters]
Soundwave: Correction: problem is ours.
Megatron: Energize the force fields!
