"Transformers: Energon" (2004)
Arcee: Alright gentlemen. Let's move out.
Strongarm: Let's follow Arcee!
[Omnicons cheering]

Optimus Prime: [coming out of the warpgate] Transform!
Inferno, Autobot A: [coming out of the warpgate] Transform!
Hot Shot: They came back.
[Sees Arcee]
Hot Shot: Huh? Who is that with them?
Landmine: [Up in Unicron's Head] Huh?
Rodimus: No! Don't fire.
Arcee: [Engine reving] Transform! Okay boys let's move out.
Optimus Prime: It's okay men. She's on our side.
[flashback]
Optimus Prime: Her name is Arcee, the first female Omnicon to evolved from energon. You might say she's their better half. She organised a plan to help her fellow Omnicons to survive on their desolate little planet. When the Omnicons endevoured to mine enrgon they looked to Arcee for her drive and with it found a new sense of purpose. She is strong in character and a mighty warrior.
Arcee: On your feet. Let's pull it together gentlemen.
Omnicon: Whatever you say Arcee.
[Omnicons chuckle]
Omnicon: Yeah.
Arcee: Are you the one they call "Kicker?"
Kicker: Yeah.
Omnicon: It's nice to finally meet you. I must admit there's been a lot talk around Cybertron about that special gift of yours. Transform! Hop on!
Kicker: Huh? What?
Arcee: I said "hop on!"
Kicker: Okay. Yeah.
Carlos, Ironhide: Hey! What about me?

Arcee: [giggling] We did it little man.
Kicker: Hey what's with this little man stuff anyways? I AM NOT YOUR LITTLE MAN!
[kicks Ironhide]
Carlos, Ironhide: Ow! What are you kicking me for? I didn't do nothing!

Prowl: If we're going to put up this energon tower then we're going to have to dig deep.
Landmine: You can say that again.
Arcee: Hey you two get out of the way.
Prowl, Landmine: Huh?
Arcee: Come on you two. You'd better move it or lose it.
Prowl: We'd better get out of the way. TRANSFORM!
Landmine: TRANSFORM!
Arcee: Come on you guys. What's the matter with you? Put your back into it.

Arcee: [giggling] We did it little man.
Kicker: Hey what's with this little man stuff? I am NOT your little man.
[kicking Ironhide]
Carlos, Ironhide: Ow! What are you kicking me for? I didn't do nothing.

Arcee: Transform!
Carlos, Ironhide: Is that who I think it is? Alpha Q
Arcee: Kicker wait!
Carlos, Ironhide: Arcee.
Arcee: Uh? Ironhide?
Carlos, Ironhide: [Ironhide shakes his head] No.
Arcee: But he... Uh!
Kicker: We tried to protect you and your homeworld. How could this have happened?
Arcee: Kicker I know what you're going through
Scorponok: Megatron I've located the intruders. What would you like me to do?
Carlos, Ironhide: Scorponok
Arcee: Leave us alone.
Scorponok: Megatron sir what would you like me to do? Give me an order.
Carlos, Ironhide: Hey Pal!
Scorponok: Huh?
Carlos, Ironhide: Look Scorponok it's Alpha Q your real master.
Scorponok: Alpha Q?
Carlos, Ironhide: Yeah! Don't you remember?
Megatron: Destroy... The... Autobots
Scorponok: Ah! Megatron is my master. He's the only one I serve.
[Screaming and shooting]
Kicker: [Kicker screams but Rodimus scoops him and Alpha Q up] Hey it's Rodimus.
Rodimus: Let's get out of here you two. NOW!
Arcee, Carlos, Ironhide: Right. TRANSFORM!

Skyblast, Six Shot: Uh excuse me? We've never been to Cybertron before.
Arcee: What are you two whining about? You're soliders and you'll do exactly as you're told. Is that understood?
Jetfire, Strongarm: Yes sir! I mean mam!

Arcee: Kicker where exactly are we going?
Kicker: We're heading for Unicron's head. That's where we have to feed him. I figure once we feed him the energon he should settle down.
Arcee: Okay now hold on tight little man.
Kicker: Little Man? Oh man!

Strongarm: My rotator cuff is killing me.
Arcee: Will you two stop whining. We've got work to do.


The Transformers: The Movie (1986)
Springer: [about the Junkions] It's not hard to knock 'em down, it's getting them to stay down that's the trick!
Arcee: They're indestructible!
Daniel: And they're everywhere!

Arcee: The Decepticons are retreating!
Kup: Prime did it! He turned the tide!

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.

Arcee: I was afraid you'd be trapped outside the city.
Hot Rod: Hey, I wasn't worried for a microsecond.
Arcee: Then you probably didn't understand the situation.

Arcee: Stay close to me, Daniel.
Hot Rod: And you'd better stay close to me.
Arcee: No you'd better stay close to me.

Ultra Magnus: You're all alive!
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?
Wreck-Gar: And the answer is... Unicron!

Ultra Magnus: Springer, you and Arcee transform Autobot City. Perceptor, tell Blaster to radio Prime for reinforcements.
Blurr: [speaking very fast] What about me, Magnus? What about me? Hmm? Huh? Hmm? Huh? Hmm? Huh? I can help. I wanna help. What about me?
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: Ignition and...
Daniel: Wait, Ultra Magnus. Arcee is still out there.
Springer: [to Arcee] JUMP!
[Arcee jumps and grabs onto the shuttle's hatch]
Arcee: [Springer pulls her in] Thanks.
Daniel: That was close.
Springer: Believe it or not, that was the fun part.

Rodimus Prime: Let this mark the end of the Cybertronian wars as we march forward to a new age of peace and happiness... Till all are one!
Springer, Arcee, Kup: Till all are one!


"Transformers Prime: Darkness Rising: Part 1 (#1.1)" (2010)
Cliffjumper: I'm getting a signal.
Arcee: Need backup?
Cliffjumper: Do I ever need backup?

[Bulkhead arrives, driving off two Decepticon drones]
Arcee: What took you?
Bulkhead: Traffic.

Arcee: Relax. I just want to talk to you.
Jack Darby: Don't you mean you and your new friend?
Arcee: Kid, there's a lot you don't understand.
[Arcee's holographic driver disappears]
Jack Darby: Look, I get it, I get it. The first rule of Robot Fight Club is that you don't talk about Robot Fight Club.

[Bumblebee and Arcee bring in the three kids]
Ratchet: I thought there were two.
Arcee: Haven't you heard? Humans multiply.

Cliffjumper: So there I am on a lookout, when out of nowhere these high beams lit up my rear view. And then it hits me... I'm illegally parked.
Arcee: Another parking ticket?
Cliffjumper: Better... The boot!
Arcee: Big metal tire clamp, impossible to remove.
Cliffjumper: Bingo! So the local Po-lice do their thing, and I let them get all the way down the block. That's when I kick off my new shiny shoe, and BANG!
Arcee: New York's finest soil themselves.
Cliffjumper: You know me, Arcee. you mess with Cliffjumper...
Arcee: And you get the horns.

Arcee: Scrap.


"Transformers Prime: Partners (#1.20)" (2011)
[At Cliffjumper's gravesight]
Arcee: Hey partner, heck of a view you got up here. If there's even a small chance your spark is out there listening, well, we could really use you Cliff. Seems like everyday a new Decepticon arrives on the scene. We're outnumbered and outgunned. Yeah, I know what you'd say, "Sounds like a fair fight", and if that's the world we live in, so be it. I just want you to know, I haven't given up. I'm going to find the Con who took you from us.

Optimus Prime: Starscream's loyalty to Megatron has always been questionable. If he has truly split from the Decepticons, our prisoner's knowledge of their agendas could make him a valuable ally.
Bulkhead: You don't mean "permanently"? As in keys to the base and everything?
Optimus Prime: However unlikely that scenario, every sentient being deserves an opportunity for redemption.
Arcee: Even Bot-killers? Even Airachnid?
Optimus Prime: Without that hope, we may never achieve lasting peace.

Starscream: I'm not really soo bad, you know. Megatron, he's the evil one.
Arcee: Tell it to someone who cares.
Starscream: Like whom? Airachnid? What I wouldn't do to get my hands around wretched throat.
Arcee: So we can agree on one thing.
Starscream: Oh, you have no idea. She showed up one day, and the next thing you know, she's acting like she runs the place. She whispers lies into Megatron's ear, maneuvered to rob me of my rightful place.
Arcee: Well, she terminated my partner.
Starscream: What? She's taking credit for scraping him now too? That was my doing!
Arcee: ...What? You won't there.
Starscream: Uh, of course I wasn't! I don't know what I was thinking.
Arcee: Who were you talking about?
Starscream: No one, who were you talking about?
Arcee: Tailgate.
Starscream: Ah... who's Tailgate?
Arcee: ...You were the one. You extinguished Cliffjumper!

Starscream: You're tougher to scrap than your former partner, at least the one I scrapped. Was Tailgate weak like Cliffjumper?
Arcee: Just keep talking Starscream.

Optimus Prime: It is the external wounds that heal the quickest.
Arcee: I thought settling scores would allow me to move on. Instead I chased away our hope of winning this war anytime soon.
Optimus Prime: Wisdom cannot be granted, Arcee. It must be earned. Sometimes at a cost.

Starscream: [Captured by the Autobots] No need to use force. I'll tell you anything you want to know.
Bulkhead: Is that right? And what do you want in return?
Starscream: I want to be... on your side.
[the Autobots pause for a moment]
Bulkhead: On our side? Haha, yeah right! And I've been lobbying with the Fallen!
Arcee: You wouldn't betray the Decepticons.
Starscream: Wouldn't I? What have they done for me lately, besides humiliate me, spy on me, demote me? Megatron tried to extinguish my spark in cold blood, then all but replaced me with that traitorous wretch Airachnid! She abandoned me! Left me for scrap! So why not rat them out?
[Optimus, Bulkhead and Arcee move away from Starscream to talk in private]
Arcee: He's telling the truth about Megatron trying to scrap him. I saw it with my own eyes.
Bulkhead: You're not saying you actually trust Starscream?
Arcee: Trust him? Never. But this may be the one time our objectives align.
Optimus Prime: You're right to be weary, Bulkhead. But I agree with Arcee.


Transformers Prime: The Game (2012) (VG)
Optimus Prime: Autobots, are you ready?
Arcee: Just let me at them.

Arcee: Give it up, Airachnid, you're done!

Airachnid: I'm glad you survived the fall, Arcee. It would have been so boring to find your spark extinquished.
Arcee: Your about to wish you had.

Arcee: Time to shoot down some bugs.

Arcee: Your about to get scrapped!


"Transformers Prime: Speed Metal (#1.11)" (2011)
Arcee: Winning isn't enough, Jack. You wanna make him cry.

Jack Darby: Now might be a good time to offer Sierra a quick once around the block?
Arcee: Don't push it.

Arcee: Bee, do not engage! Your first priority is to keep Jack safe! Until I get my hands on him...

Arcee: Uh, Jack? A lady's "vital stats" are her own business.

Arcee: Have you guys seen Jack?
Miko Nakadai: ...not since we last saw him.
Arcee: They're racing, aren't they?
Rafael 'Raf' Esquivel: Just this once.
Arcee: Did you know about this?
Bulkhead: NO. Maybe, a little.


"Transformers Prime: Predatory (#1.12)" (2011)
Arcee: So much for closure.

Arcee: Quite the outdoorsman, aren't you, Jack?
Jack Darby: I may not have stinger-proof metal skin, Arcee, but in a pinch, I can use my multi-function pocket knife and magnesium fire-starter to cook up some freeze-dried mac and cheese.

Airachnid: These days, I travel solo in pursuit of my new hobby.
Arcee: I got a look at your souvenir case.
Airachnid: You mean my trophies. I collect endangered species. Of course, they aren't really endangered... until they meet me.

Airachnid: Arcee! Small universe.
Arcee: Too small!


"Transformers Prime: Con Job (#1.8)" (2011)
Arcee: Primes don't party.

Arcee: So, who's the boyfriend?

Bulkhead: I'm still picking shrapnel out of my backside!
Arcee: I'm not surprised, given the size of your backside.


"Transformers Prime: One Shall Fall (#1.23)" (2011)
Optimus Prime: [Opening lines] And it was written in the Covenant of Primus, that when the 47 spheres align, a perpetual conflict with culminate upon a world forged by chaos. And the weak shall perish in the shadow of a rising darkness.
Arcee: No sky is raining fire?
Ratchet: Goes without saying, it is a doom prophesy after all.
Bulkhead: I say it's a load of hooey.
Ratchet: I always assumed the ancients were referring to our home planet. But being that Cybertron has been dark for eons...
Optimus Prime: And considering what has befallen this planet since Megatron's arrival here...
Bulkhead: Wow, wow, wow... we've known about these superstitions for ages and never gave them a second thought.
Arcee: Why all the ominous rumbling now?
Optimus Prime: Because the planetary alignment to which the prophesy refers is nearly upon us.
Ratchet: And it would seem it's end point... is Earth.
Bulkhead: Uhh... crazy coincidence! Heh... R-right?
Arcee: How long are we talking?
Ratchet: A few days, at most.
Optimus Prime: However unsettling this revelation may be, I am more concerned about those who might believe that the prophesy speaks to them alone.

Arcee: Don't take it personally. Primes are built that way.
Bulkhead: Never seen Optimus laugh, cry, or lose his cool.
Ratchet: While Optimus certainly keeps his emotions in check, I've known him for far longer than any of you have. And he *was* different before he was made a Prime.
Rafael 'Raf' Esquivel: Optimus wasn't always a Prime?
Ratchet: On Cybertron, one isn't born into greatness, but rather one must earn it.
Jack Darby: So, different how? We talking "party animal"?
Ratchet: No, no. Optimus was more like... Jack.
Jack Darby: What? I'm nothing like...

[Bumblebee shakes in anger, striking a wall to the shock of the others. Arcee grabs Bumblebee and pins him against the wall]
Arcee: Bee, listen! You don't think I know how it feels to watch a partner... harmed. Revenge won't help Raf right now. You need to keep your emotions in check!


"Transformers Prime: New Recruit (#2.18)" (2012)
Arcee: All those 'Cons came out of one pod?
Ratchet: Humans refer to the phenomenon as "a clown car"!

[Smokescreen arrives via ground bridge in vehicle mode: a ground-hugging race car with '38" on checkered flags painted on the doors]
Arcee: Apparently nobody defined "low profile" for him.


Transformers Prime Beast Hunters: Predacons Rising (2013) (TV)
Arcee: It isn't fair. How many more times do we have to save a world? Have to fight for the survival of our home?
Ratchet: Regrettably the struggle between creation and destruction is an eternal one, and the battle lines which separate the two run through the very spark of Cybertron. Good and evil;, order and chaos; one victorious, one vanquished. Each forming the core of their own separate worlds, Cybertron and Earth. And now the darkness has followed us all the way home.

Arcee: Why'd you do it, Knock Out? Why'd you turn against Starscream?
Knock Out: Even if I had helped him seize this ship, he would probably just fire me out of the first airlock... Oh, and he's rude.


"Transformers Prime: Legacy (#2.20)" (2012)
Optimus Prime: Perhaps the best way for you to learn about the human world is from a human.
Arcee: Smokescreen gets his own partner?
Ratchet: Oh, please! Isn't having three humans here enough?
[the other Autobots stare at Ratchet]
Ratchet: [scoffs] Uggh!

Arcee: Optimus, with all due respect, Agent Fowler is out relocating Raf's family because the 'Cons discovered where he lives. Meanwhile, Smokescreen, in all his wisdom, chooses a vehicle mode with screaming double 38s on the doors, making him an easy target. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't more than concerned about Jack's safety.
Optimus Prime: Nonetheless, the fact remains that our new recruit is in need of instruction. I believe that Smokescreen's spark is in the right place, and that he now understands the necessity of protecting humanity.


Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen (2009)
Major Lennox: Arcee, you ready?
Arcee: We're locked and loaded.

Arcee: Follow us through the pillars. We'll take you to Optimus...
[gets hit]


"Transformers Prime: Darkness Rising: Part 2 (#1.2)" (2010)
[Arcee almost faints. Bumblebee reacts with concern]
Arcee: I'm fine, just... dizzy.
Miko Nakadai: Robots who get dizzy?
Rafael 'Raf' Esquivel: Robots with emotions.
Jack Darby: Robots... who can die.

Arcee: Cons!
Jack Darby: No! Mom!


"Transformers Prime: Out of His Head (#1.14)" (2011)
Arcee: Lucky for us Megatron was still alive.
[Bumblebee beeps]
Arcee: Yeah, I actually said that.


"Transformers Prime: Darkness Rising: Part 5 (#1.5)" (2010)
[Bumblebee brings in a weak and wounded Arcee]
Jack Darby: Arcee.
Arcee: Jack... really? There are other motorcycles in the world.
Jack Darby: But you're my first.


"Transformers Prime: Scrapheap (#1.7)" (2011)
Arcee: What do you suggest... wait, how about a game? Let's play 'Who Screwed Things Up Back at Base'.
Optimus Prime: Our predicament could be the result of a simple malfunction.
Arcee: Caused by Bulkhead. Let's see: no com-link, maybe even no power. The big lug probably tripped over a cord. He's never been too graceful. Remember when we first arrived on earth and Bulkhead walked into those power lines. Who knew he could dance like that.


"Transformers Prime: Armada (#2.10)" (2012)
Airachnid: When you extinguish my spark, make it hurt. You know I would extend that courtesy to you.
Arcee: I'm not like you.
Airachnid: Very well.


"Transformers: Animated: The Thrill of the Hunt (#1.7)" (2008)
Ratchet: Stay with me now. What's your name solder?
Arcee: Arcee, sir.
Ratchet: Don't call me sir, I work for a living! Call me Ratchet, understand?
Arcee: Yes, sir. Yes, Ratchet.
