Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen (2009)
Jetfire: What do you want?
Sam Witwicky: Look, we just want to talk!
Jetfire: I've got no time to talk, I'm on a mission! I'm a mercenary doom-bringer!... What planet am I on?
Sam Witwicky: Earth.
Jetfire: Earth? Terrible name for a planet. Might as well call it DIRT, Planet Dirt...

Jetfire: I have issues of my own, and it started with my mother! My ancestors have been here for centuries! My father, why, he was a wheel! The FIRST wheel! Do you know what he tranformed into?
Agent Simmons: No.
Leo Spitz: What?
Jetfire: NOTHING! But he did so with honour! DIGNITY, damn it!

Jetfire: Tell me, is that robot civil war still going on? Who's winning?
Sam Witwicky: The Decepticons.
[Jetfire grimaces and spits]
Jetfire: Well, I changed sides to the Autobots.
Sam Witwicky: What do you mean, changed sides?
Jetfire: It's a choice. It's an intensely personal decision. So much negativity... Who wants to live a life filled with hate?
Wheelie: You mean you don't have to work for those miserable freaking Decepticons?
Jetfire: If the Decepticons had their way, they'd destroy the whole universe!

[last words]
Jetfire: In my Decepticon life, I never did a thing worth doing until now... Optimus, take my parts, and you will have a power you've never known. Fulfill your destiny...!
[rips out his spark]

Sam Witwicky: I'm sorry, what were you saying?
[Jetfire thrusts himself right in their faces, making them fall over]
Jetfire: I told you my name was Jetfire! So stop judging me!
Wheelie: Whoa, somebody shit the bed this morning!

[Wheelie leads the group to an SR-71 Blackbird jet]
Wheelie: Oh, there he is... This guy's a legend, like the Chairman of the Board! Yo, freshman, point the shard and watch the magic happen.
[Sam sticks the Allspark shard into the jet. Mikaela makes a closer examination of the plane, and discovers a symbol... ]
Mikaela Banes: Oh, shit... It's a Deception!
Agent Simmons: Decepticon? Behind the MiG NOW!
[Sam, Mikaela, Leo and Simmons scramble away as the Blackbird transforms]
Jetfire: What sort of hideous mausoleum is this?
[Jetfire spots the humans]
Jetfire: Answer me, pawns and knaves! Show yourselves, or suffer my infinite wrath!
[Cautiously, the humans approach the robot]
Jetfire: You little spinal-cord-based organisms...!
[bangs his head on a model of a satellite, which drops and just misses Sam]
Jetfire: Oh, bugger it!
[stands upright]
Jetfire: Behold, the eternal glory of Jetfire! Prepare for remote systems override!
Wheelie: I tell you, this guy did NOT age well!
Mikaela Banes: I don't think he's gonna hurt us...

[in the middle of the Egyptian desert]
Leo Spitz: [looking around] Hey, I think we're in Vegas!
Agent Simmons: That really, really hurt. You're just lucky that I didn't get hurt! People could have gotten killed, okay? And if I would have gotten hurt, you would have heard...
Jetfire: Oh, shut up! I told you I was opening a space bridge, it's the fastest way to travel to Egypt.
Sam Witwicky: [his hand injured and bandaged] When did you... When did you tell us? You didn't tell us anything. You didn't tell us anything. Why are we in Egypt?
Jetfire: Don't you get snippy with me, fleshling! You were duly informed!

Mikaela Banes: Okay, so how do we stop him?
Jetfire: Only a Prime can defeat the Fallen.
Sam Witwicky: Optimus Prime?
[Jetfire leans forward to look at Sam]
Jetfire: So you've met a Prime? Why, you must have met a great descendant. Is he alive? Here, on this planet?
Sam Witwicky: He sacrificed himself to save me.
Jetfire: So he's dead. Without a Prime, it's impossible. No one else could have stopped the Fallen.
Sam Witwicky: So, the same energy that's gonna be used to reactivate the machine... could that energy somehow be used to reactive Optimus and bring him back to life?
Jetfire: It was never designed for that purpose, but it's an energy like no other.
Sam Witwicky: So, then how do you get us to the Matrix before the Decepticons get to me?
Jetfire: Follow your mind, your map, your symbols! What you carved in the sand, it's your clue: "When dawn lights the Dagger's Tip, Three Kings will reveal the doorway!" Find the doorway! Go now! GO! That was my mission! It's YOUR mission now! Go before the Decepticons find me and find you!
[Sam, Mikaela, Leo, Simmons, Bumblebee and the Twins leave]

[Optimus is resurrected with the Matrix]
Optimus Prime: [to Sam] Boy, you returned for me...
Jetfire: [awestruck] A living Prime... I don't believe it!
[the Fallen warps and jumps on Prime, and plucks the Matrix from his chest]
The Fallen: My Matrix.
[warps off]

[hobbling around]
Jetfire: Itchy, wretched rust in my arse!
[scratches himself]

Jetfire: Somewhere buried in this desert, our ancestors built a great machine. It harvests Energon by destroying suns.
Sam Witwicky: Destroy suns?
Leo Spitz: You mean blow them up?
Jetfire: Yes! You see, in the beginning, there were seven Primes, our original leaders. And they set out into the universe, seeking distant suns to harvest. The Primes set out with one rule: never destroy a planet with life. Until one of them tried to defy this rule. And his name was, forevermore, the Fallen...
[projects a hologram and narrates the events seen within]
Jetfire: He despised the human race, and he wanted to kill you all by turning on that machine. The only way to activate it is with a legendary key called the Matrix of Leadership. A great battle took place over the possession of the Matrix. The Fallen was stronger than his brothers, so they had no choice but to steal and hide it from him. In the ultimate sacrifice, they gave their lives to seal the Matrix away in a tomb made of their very own bodies. A tomb we cannot find.
[shuts off the hologram]
Jetfire: Somewhere, buried in this desert, that deadly machine remains. The Fallen knows where it is, and if he finds the Tomb of the Primes, you world will be no more.

[Lennox and Sam are under attack by Mixmaster]
Jetfire: [flying] INCOMING!
[transforms]
Jetfire: Stick the landing... Arrggghhhh!
[crash-lands, and attacks Mixmaster]
Jetfire: Behold the glory of Jetfire!
[slices Mixmaster in half]
Jetfire: Now let me show you how we brought the pain in MY day!
[stomps on Mixmaster and breaks off his head]

Jetfire: This planet was visited by our race once before, by our earliest ancestors, millennia ago. They were on an exploratory mission to harvest Energon, the lifeblood of our race. Without it, we'll all perish, oxidize and rust... like my wretched self! Do you have any idea what it's like to slowly fall part and die?
Agent Simmons: Let's not get episodic, okay, old-timer? Beginning, middle, end. Facts, details. Condense: Plot. Tell it!

Sam Witwicky: Maybe we can help each other. You know things I don't know, I know things you don't know...
Leo Spitz: I don't think he knows what we know.
[Sam carves Cybertronian symbols into the ground with a dagger]
Sam Witwicky: I could do this all day. It comes in waves, these vivid symbols. They're symbols, but they're in my mind. You see, all this is in my mind, and Megatron want what's in my mind, him and someone called the Fallen...
Jetfire: The Fallen? I know him. He left me here to rust! The original Decepticon! He's terrible to work for, it's always apocalyose, chaos, crisis...
[scrutinizes the symbols]
Jetfire: These transcriptions, they were part of my mission! The Fallen's search... I remember now!... for the Dagger's Tip, a-and the Key!
Sam Witwicky: Slow down! The Dagger's Tip? The Key? What are you talking about?
Jetfire: [activating a space bridge] No time to explain! Hold on, everybody! Stay still or you'll die!
[Humans and robots vanish into a flare of light, they all fall in the sand as they arrive in Egypt]
Jetfire: Well, that wasn't so bad. I just hope we're still on the right planet.
Wheelie: [tumbling] Hey, that freaking hurt!

[in a bout of flatulence, a parachute ejects from Jetfire, causing him to topple backwards]
Jetfire: [creaking] My boosters are fried...!

Jetfire: [wounded by Scorponok] I'm too old for this crap...!

Jetfire: Right... I'm on a mission!

Jetfire: I command these doors to open!
[aims his blaster at a door]
Jetfire: Fire!... I said, FIRE!
[the blaster malfunctions and misfires]
Jetfire: Oh, bollocks! Damn these worthless parts...
[smashes his way out of the museum]

Ironhide: Get up, Prime!
Jetfire: Oh, no!


"The Transformers: Fire in the Sky (#1.13)" (1984)
Skyfire: [revived] What happened? Starscream... it's you. You have... rescued me. But where am I? This is not Cybertron.
Starscream: No. This is Earth, where you crashed many years ago.
Megatron: I am Megatron, Skyfire. Supreme leader of all Decepticons. We are on this planet to collect the energy we need to revive Cybertron and conquer the universe. And the Autobots are now our enemies.

Megatron: Hail Cybertron!
Skyfire: Hail Cybertron!
Megatron: And destruction to all Autobots!
Skyfire: [uncertain] Destruction...

[Spike and his father cry for help]
Skyfire: Strange voices. Must be coming from Earth creatures. I'll try to communicate with them.

Sparkplug Witwicky: Keep your big mitts offa me!
Spike Witwicky: Let go of us, please!
Sparkplug Witwicky: Help! Optimus Prime!
Skyfire: Why are you so frightened? I will not harm you.
Spike Witwicky: Then why are you wearing the Decepticon symbol?
Skyfire: Only the evil Autobots need fear me.
Spike Witwicky: The Autobots are not evil, they're good. They're fighting to protect our planet and all us humans.
Sparkplug Witwicky: He's right. You Decepticons are the real monsters!
Skyfire: No, no, that can't be true. I'll prove we are not evil. I'll take you to Megatron, my leader. He'll show you that you have nothing to fear.

Skyfire: I promised the Earth creatures no harm would come to them! This is wrong!
Megatron: Then you overstepped your authority.

Skyfire: [thinks] My function is to further science and learning, not to destroy innocent life forms!

Starscream: Those years under the ice diminished your loyalty coefficiency, Skyfire, but because of our old friendship I shall be generous. You may have the pleasure of melting down these Autobots.
Skyfire: But I'm a scientist, not an executioner!
Starscream: I am your superior. I order you to terminate them!
Skyfire: No. I will not. They have done no wrong.
Starscream: But you have, traitor!
[strikes Skyfire]

Megatron: Skyfire, destroy Optimus Prime! Crush him and all the Autobots once and for all!
Skyfire: I take no orders from you! I am an Autobot now!

[Starscream blasts Autobot prisoners to parts]
Starscream: [laughs] Farewell, Autobot parts! As for you, Skyfire, consider yourself fortunate that you did not end up like your friends.
[Starscream leaves. The Autobots reveal themselves to be alive]
Skyfire: Uhh... But... I saw him... destroy you!
Ratchet: Heh heh, an illusion, Skyfire. You and Starscream saw one of Hound's holograms.
Skyfire: Then you are... functioning. Good.
[collapses]
Hound: Yeah, we're functioning. I sure hope we'll be able to say the same for you.
Ratchet: Let's get him behind some cover and start working.
