Ultra Magnus: Then you'll die trying just like Megatron!
[Ultra Magnus fires his laser and hits Galvatron]
Galvatron: Argh! Autobot scrap!
Cyclonus: You want me to gut Ultra Magnus?
Galvatron: There are plenty of Autobots for you. Ultra Magnus is mine!

Ultra Magnus: Blurr, get the Dinobots in the shuttle!
Blurr: [speaking quickly] I'm trying to get them in the shuttle, Ultra Magnus. 'Cause I know we can't launch the shuttle until I get them into the shuttle. But I can't seem to get them into the shuttle 'cause they're impossible, impossible, impossible!
Ultra Magnus: Okay, forget it! Kup, Hot Rod, you guys get the Dinobots aboard and get out of here.
Hot Rod: [lassoing Grimlock's neck] Come on, you big bozo, get in the shuttle!

Ultra Magnus: [straining] Open, damn it, open! Prime, you said the Matrix would light our darkest hour.

Daniel: [long pause] Prime, you can't die.
Optimus Prime: Do not grieve. Soon I shall be one with the Matrix.
Hot Rod: Prime.
Optimus Prime: Ultra Magnus, it is to you, old friend, I shall pass the Matrix of Leadership as it was passed to me.
Ultra Magnus: But Prime, I'm... I'm just a soldier. I... I'm not worthy.
Optimus Prime: Nor was I. But one day, an Autobot shall rise from our ranks, and use the power of the Matrix to light our darkest hour.

Cliffjumper: And it's attacking Moon Base One...
[static obscures the message]
Ultra Magnus: Jazz! Cliffjumper!

Perceptor: Ultra Magnus, a cursory evaluation of Decepticon capability indicates a distinct tactical deficiency!
Ultra Magnus: In other words, Perceptor...?
Springer: We're outnumbered!

Arcee: Did we have to let them detonate three-quarters of the ship?
Springer: Seeing as how they would have detonated four-quarters, I think it was a good choice.
Arcee: But then how are we gonna get there in this wreck?
Ultra Magnus: Perceptor, can you locate a place to set down for repairs?
Perceptor: Gamma waves in this sector of space create marginal navigation probabilities, however...
[Ultra Magnus and Springer look impatient]
Perceptor: Ahem, yes I believe I can. The planet of Junk is in this vicinity.

Hot Rod: The Matrix?
Ultra Magnus: It's gone...
Kup: And with it all hope.
Hot Rod: No!
Arcee: Galvatron has it.
Hot Rod: Where's Galvatron? Where is he?

Ultra Magnus: Blurr, you can help me alert the others.
Blurr: [speaking very fast] Absolutely, positively, definitely. Nobody can get the job done faster than I can. Nobody. Nobody. Nobody.
Springer: Come on, Arcee, let's go.
Arcee: But Hot Rod and Kup are still outside the city.
Springer: We can't wait. They'll have to take care of themselves. Come on!

Springer: Kup and Hot Rod just bought it.
Ultra Magnus: I can't deal with that right now.
Springer: Face it, Magnus. The Decepticons are going to dog us until they see us dead.
Ultra Magnus: Then that's exactly what they're going to see. Prepare for emergency seperation.
Perceptor: That's too dangerous.
Ultra Magnus: What choice do we have?

Hot Rod: Aren't you getting a little carried away here? I'm still me, you're still you, Matrix, schmatrix!
Marissa Faireborne: Hot Rod, listen to what you're saying!
Hot Rod: I know exactly what I'm saying! I'm telling you - *all* of you - that I'm sick of being responsible for the preservation of the universe and its outlying suburbs! Day in and day out, punch this Decepticon, bash that Decepticon, what's the point? This has been going on a few dozen millennia now, and I don't see it changing! Do you? You want the Matrix back?
