Transformers: Dark of the Moon (2011)
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?

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!

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

Que: Wait! I'm not letting you go out there without my urban combat prototypes. They're great inventions for kicking ass! Those are boomsticks, armed in 30 seconds. Grapple gloves for climbing.

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.


"Transformers Prime: Con Job (#1.8)" (2011)
Starscream: Do you not see that you are vastly outnumbered?
Wheeljack: I see fellas who might vastly enjoy watching me pound some dents into you.

Wheeljack: [to Miko] If anything happens to my favourite Wrecker, I'm coming after you!

Wheeljack: If you're trying to ruin my day, you're going to have to try harder!

Wheeljack: You keeping Bulkhead out of trouble?
Miko Nakadai: I try, but trouble finds us anyway.
Wheeljack: We're gonna get along just fine.


"Transformers Prime: Loose Cannons (#2.6)" (2012)
Optimus Prime: Wheeljack, this planet is heavily inhabited. Any strike we make against the Decepticons must be carefully measured... as a team. Least we risk endangering the human population.
Wheeljack: Are you suggesting we just sit back and do nothing?
Agent William Fowler: You! Loose cannon! Your cowboy antics almost blew our cover!
Wheeljack: Cover?
Bulkhead: We're robot in disguise, Jacky. You need an Earth-based vehicle mode outside of here.
Agent William Fowler: That spaceship you shot down, NOT EARTH-BASED! Had to jump through some big hoops to get it hauled out of plain sight! You need to keep a tighter leash on your people, Prime!
Wheeljack: "A tighter leash"? Let me clarify, tiny...
Bulkhead: Jacky!
Wheeljack: ...I'm *not* one of Optimus Prime's people.

Wheeljack: You know Wreckers don't call for backup...
Wheeljack, Bulkhead: They call for clean-up!

Wheeljack: Ow! take it easy, Doc, I need that arm!
Ratchet: Hold still, and maybe you'll keep it.

Bulkhead: Jackie, look, even if it weren't for the humans we couldn't take on the Cons right now! We're outnumbered!
Wheeljack: Roadbuster, Pyro, Impactor, Rotorstorm, Seaspray... all dust.
Bulkhead: That's what I'm talking about! Wreckers or Autobots, there just aren't that many of us left. But if we get behind Optimus, we have a chance to end this once and for all.
Wheeljack: Guys like Optimus, they talk a good game, but when you're in the scrap they don't wanna get their hands dirty.


"The Transformers: Heavy Metal War (#1.14)" (1984)
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]

[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]

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]


"The Transformers: Dinobot Island: Part 2 (#2.4)" (1985)
[back at Autobots' headquarters]
Optimus Prime: Well, Chip? Have you formulated an explanation?
Chip Chase: The time disturbances can be traced to Dinobot Island.
[image of Dinobot Island appears on the computer screen. Suddenly the cave starts trembling]
Wheeljack: Something is making this volcano active again!
Optimus Prime: The energy disruptions on Dinobot Island have activated this volcano as well. We must repair the damage to the timeflow at once! Warpath, Beachcomber, Perceptor, Ironhide, Smokescreen, Trailbreaker! Strap on your jetpacks and follow me - to Dinobot Island!
[Optimus Prime takes jetpack and gives it to Beachcomber. The seven Autobots put on the jetpacks and fly to Dinobot Island]

[back at Autobots' headquarters, Chip uses Teletraan I to find the location of the time-warps]
Chip Chase: We just picked up two new time-warps!
Optimus Prime, Wheeljack: Two time warps?
[At the sea, small yacht is sailing, two lovely women in bikinis sunbathe on its deck. Suddenly a time-warp appears and a pirate ship emerges from it. The pirate captain watches the yacht with binoculars]
Pirate Captain: [to the yacht people] Abaft, ye scurvy swabs!
[the pirates cheer. One of them, burly brown-skinned giant, throws a grapnel at the yacht. The grapnel catches on the yacht railing. The pirate pulls the rope, getting the yacht near the ship]
Pirate Captain: [to the yacht people] We be boardin' your vessel to confiscate yer treasure!
[the two women cling to the yacht captain, watching the pirates fearfully. Meanwhile, on the mainland, bunch of hooligan bikers ride their motorcycles when suddenly a time-warp appears in front of them and several cowboys on horses emerge from it, shooting in the air. The bikers halt]
Cowboys gang leader: [to the other cowboys] Don't rightly know where these trails are takin' us, boys, but since we're runnin' from the law, we'll get away faster if'n we rustle these newfangled mechanical horses!
[the cowboys leader points at the bikers, laughing viciously. The bikers look at each other]

Bumblebee: [pants] Is it my imagination, or is this tunnel getting tighter?
Perceptor: It's us! We're returning to our normal size. We've got to get out of here!
Optimus Prime: Now we'll see who's finished!
[Optimus Prime opens fire at Megatron, hits him severely, striking him down. As Megatron lies down, the three Autobots coming out of his body, returning to their normal size while stepping on Megatron's body. Megatron recovers in time to see Bumblebee stepping on him]
Bumblebee: Uh... excuse us!
Megatron: [standing on his feet, furious at his failure] You... filthy retro-rats! Uhhh!
[Megatron flies away]
Wheeljack: He's getting away! Stop him!
Perceptor: No! Wait! We've got the Heart of Cybertron!
Brawn: But it's destabilizing! It could explode at any second!
