The Transformers: The Movie (1986)
Optimus Prime: Megatron must be stopped... no matter the cost.
Hot Rod: [about the Sharkticons] We can't hold out forever, Kup, but we *can* give them one *humongous* repair bill.
Springer: I've got better things to do tonight than die.
[before their final battle]
Megatron: [surprised] Prime!
Optimus Prime: One shall stand, one shall fall.
Megatron: Why throw away your life so recklessly?
Optimus Prime: That's a question you should ask yourself, Megatron.
Rumble: First we crack the shell, then we crack the nuts inside!
Starscream: Who disrupts my coronation?
Galvatron: Coronation, Starscream? This is bad comedy.
Starscream: Megatron? Is that you?
Galvatron: Here's a hint!
[Galvatron transforms and shoots Starscream. Starscream crackles and falls to dust]
Galvatron: [crushing Starscream's fallen crown under his foot] Will anyone else attempt to fill his shoes?
Rumble: What did he say his name was?
Uninjured Decepticons: Long live Galvatron! Galvatron!
Kup: Don't act hostile, I'll use the universal greeting.
Hot Rod: Universal greeting?
Kup: Watch, I'll have them eating out of my hands. Bah weep gragnah weep nini bong!
Hot Rod: Bah weep gragnah weep nini bong?
Allicon: Bah weep gragnah weep nini bong!
Kup: See, the universal greeting works every time.
Unicron: I have summoned you here for a purpose.
Megatron: Nobody summons Megatron.
Unicron: Then it pleases me to be the first.
Megatron: State your business.
Unicron: This is my command: you are to destroy the Autobot Matrix of Leadership. It is the one thing... the *only* thing... that can stand in my way.
Megatron: You have nothing to fear. I have already crushed Optimus Prime with my bare hands!
Unicron: You exaggerate.
Megatron: The point is he's dead! And the Matrix died with him!
[the Decepticons attempt to find out who is most worthy to take over Decepticon leadership]
Scrapper: Wait, the Constructicons form Devastator, the most powerful robot. We should rule!
Soundwave: Soundwave superior. Constructicons inferior.
Bonecrusher: Who are you calling inferior?
Hook: Nobody would follow an uncharismatic bore like you!
[Soundwave ejects his cassette minions]
Rumble: Hey, nobody calls Soundwave uncrassimatic!
Frenzy: Yeah, let's kick tailgate!
[pointing a gun at Optimus Prime's head]
Megatron: I would have waited an eternity for this. It's over, Prime.
Brawn: [Decepticons ambush Autobots on board shuttle] Megatron? Decepticons!
Megatron: Die, Autobots!
Megatron: [Decepticons kill Autobots on board shuttle except Ironhide] This was almost too easy, Starscream!
Starscream: Much easier, almighty Megatron, than attacking the real threat; the Autobots' moonbase!
Megatron: You're an idiot, Starscream. When we slip by their early warning systems in their own shuttle and destroy Autobot City, the Autobots will be vanquished forever.
Megatron: Such heroic nonsense!
[blasts Ironhide's head off, killing him]
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!
Starscream: [chasing after Arcee and Springer who are closing themselves inside Autobot City] Pathetic fools! There's no escape!
Starscream: [struggling to free his trapped foot. He decides to blast his foot free before being crushed] Oooh! My foot!
Ultra Magnus: [straining] Open, damn it, open! Prime, you said the Matrix would light our darkest hour.
[Optimus Prime has thrown Megatron to the ground]
Kup: Finish him off, Prime! Do it now!
[Optimus Prime picks up his laser rifle and takes aim]
Megatron: [feigning defeat as he reaches for a laser gun] No more, Optimus Prime! Grant me mercy, I beg of you!
Optimus Prime: You, who are without mercy, now plead for it? I thought you were made of sterner stuff!
Hot Rod: I never thought I'd be so happy to see those big bozos.
Grimlock: Me Grimlock no bozo. Me king!
Quintesson Judge: Sharkticons, execute them!
[Grimlock stomps his foot]
Grimlock: Me Grimlock say, execute *them*!
[the Sharkticons think about it for a second then attack the Quintessons]
Kup: I think the problems on this planet will be solved very shortly.
Hot Rod: Yeah, but what about our problems? We need a ship.
Perceptor: Ultra Magnus, a cursory evaluation of Decepticon capability indicates a distinct tactical deficiency!
Ultra Magnus: In other words, Perceptor...?
Springer: We're outnumbered!
Shockwave: Laserbeak returns, Megatron.
Megatron: Welcome, Laserbeak! Unlike some of my other warriors, you never fail me. Soundwave, play back Laserbeak's findings.
Soundwave: As you command, Megatron.
Optimus Prime: [on the playback] I want you to make a special run to Autobot City on Earth.
Ironhide: But, Prime...
Optimus Prime: Listen, Ironhide. We don't have enough energon cubes to power a full-scale assault. Ready the shuttle for launch! Now all we need is a little energon and a lot of luck.
Megatron: More than you imagine, Optimus Prime.
Perceptor: I fear the wounds are... fatal.
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.
[opens his chest to reveal the Matrix. Removes it and begins to hand it over to Ultra Magnus]
Optimus Prime: Until that day, till all are one.
[the Matrix starts to fall to the ground. Hot Rod catches it, gives it to Ultra Magnus. Ultra Magnus inserts it inside. Optimus Prime dies]
Blurr: [speaking very fast] We got Decepticons at the gates! Decepticons in the air! Decepticons inside the walls! Decepticons, Decepticons, Decepticons! If we beat them off the walls they're still in the air, if we shoot them out of the air they're still at the gates! So where does that leave us? Nowhere that's where!
Megatron: Why should I, what's in it for me?
Unicron: Your bargaining posture is highly dubious. But very well. I will provide you with a new body, and new troops to command.
Unicron: And nothing! You belong to me... now.
Megatron: I belong to nobody!
Unicron: Perhaps, I misjudged you. Proceed... on your way to oblivion.
[Unicron begins to dissolve Megatron]
Megatron: No, no. I accept your terms! I accept!
Springer: [sees Unicron attacking Cybertron] I don't believe it.
Hot Rod: Doesn't this remind you of anything, Kup?
Kup: Nope, I've never seen anything like this before.
Hot Rod: We've got to get a new travel agent. What is this place?
Kranix: The world of the savage Sharkticons and their cruel masters the Quintessons. I am Kranix. My planet was destroyed by Unicron.
Hot Rod: Unicron? Who's Unicron?
Kranix: A planet that devours everything in its path.
Kup: So that's the monster's name.
Megatron: Soundwave, jam that transmission!
Soundwave: Rumble, Frenzy, Ravage, Ratbat, eject. Operation: interference.
Spike: [sees Unicron] It isn't even dented! Oh shit! What are we going to do now?
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!
[said with smirk on his face]
Starscream: Oh, how it pains me to do this!
Megatron: Wait! I still function!
Starscream: Wanna bet?
[Starscream lets Megatron's body drift from the open shuttle door into space]
Megatron: Starscream!... argh!...
[Megatron's crumbled body disappears into space]
Kranix: [to the Quintessons] Spare me this mockery of justice.
Wreck-Gar: Yes friends, act now, destroy Unicron! Kill the Grand Poobah! Eliminate even the toughest stains!
Megatron: Their defenses are broken, let the slaughter begin!
Swoop: Me Swoop no see nothing.
Grimlock: Me Grimlock positive Hot Rod and Kup close.
Slag: Me Slag say you full of beryllium baloney!
Grimlock: Me Grimlock say you full of cesium salami.
Slag: Beryllium baloney!
Kup: Of all the circuit glitched, diode blown dimwittery. You left a piece out.
Hot Rod: No way. You're just a little stiff.
Kup: Anyway all things considered you did an amazing job lad. Amazing.
Hot Rod: Really?
Kup: Yeah. You even got rid of a nasty burr in my rotator. Now let's find the Dinobots and get off of this twisted planet.
Jazz: [sees Unicron] Where'd that come from?
Cliffjumper: Who cares? I'm more worried about where it's going.
Kup: Grimlock, get your noodle outta my face!
Grimlock: Me Grimlock love Kup's war stories.
Kup: You're living one, now.
[to Hot Rod]
Kup: Engage the boosters for Cybertron's sake!
Grimlock: Tell Grimlock about petro-rabbits again.
Kup: I'll give you petro-rabbits.
Narrator: The battle is over, but the galaxy spaning adventures of the Transformers will continue and the greatest Autobot of them all - Optimus Prime - will return.
Shockwave: [Unicron attacks Cybertron] Decepticons, we're under attack! Scramble!
Wreck-Gar: [about the Junkion ship] Framed in enamel! Resists fire, rain and corrosion for up to five years. Satisfaction guaranteed.
Junkions: Or your money back!
Galvatron: I, Galvatron, will crush you just as Megatron crushed Prime!
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!
Narrator: It is the year 2005. The treacherous Decepticons have conquered the Autobots' home planet of Cybertron. But from secret staging grounds on two of Cybertron's moons, the valiant Autobots prepare to retake their homeland.
Starscream: [Megatron has been gravely injured in his fight with Optimus Prime] How do you feel, mighty Megatron?
[Starscream kicks Megatron]
Starscream: Astrotrain, transform and get us out of here!
Megatron: [in a very weak voice] Don't leave me, Soundwave.
Soundwave: As you command, Megatron.
[Astrotrain transforms into his train mode]
Starscream: [the last of the Decepticons load into Astrotrain] Astrotrain, take off!
Hot Rod: Why settle for a peek, Daniel, when you can see everything from Lookout Mountain?
Daniel: [views the shuttle from a viewscope] Hot Rod, look, there's a hole in the shuttle!
Hot Rod: [shocked] What?
Hot Rod: [zooms his eyes in on the damaged shuttle] Decepticons!
Kup: [sees Hot Rod shooting at the incoming shuttle] What's that darn fool doing?
Hot Rod: Heh, not bad for an old timer.
Kup: Old Timer? That's something you'll never be, if you don't get back to the city.
Hot Rod: [shouts] Save it, Kup!
[Blitzwing comes screaming over head very closely while shooting at the two]
Hot Rod: Let's *burn rubber*!
[Both Hot Rod and Kup transform]
Blaster: Hey, Perceptor, what's shaking? Other than this fortress?
Perceptor: Blaster, Ultra Magnus sent orders to contact Optimus Prime on Moon Base One!
Blaster: All right! Cover your receptors, Perceptor!
[He transforms into a ghetto blaster and broadcasts the message]
Blaster: Optimus Prime, do you read me? The Decepticons are blitzing Autobot City, we're really taking a pounding. Don't know how much longer we can hold out.
Wreck-Gar: Have a nice day and please, close cover before striking, friends! Breep drit, aw rootie! So say the Junkions!
Hot Rod: Where did you learn to talk like that?
Wreck-Gar: T.V. We talk T.V. You talk some T.V.?
Kup: I talk some T.V. And now the news, don't touch that dial.
Kup: Reminds me of the Nitith slave mines on Galganas 7.
Hot Rod: Every place reminds you of some place else.
Kup: Experience, lad. You should learn to appreciate it.
Hot Rod: A lot of good it's done us so far.
Jazz: Roger me. Wilco me. Anything. Hello. Hello. Earth?
Blaster: I'm pickin' up a faint signal!
[He transforms into a ghetto blaster and monitors the message]
Jazz: This is Jazz. A ginormous weird lookin' planet just showed up in the suburbs of Cybertron.
Cliffjumper: And it's attacking Moon Base One...
[static obscures the message]
Ultra Magnus: Jazz! Cliffjumper!
Quintesson: Would you like to beg for your lives? It sometimes helps... but not often.
Kup: I can't transform.
Hot Rod: Keep trying.
Quintesson: Silence or you'll be held in contempt of this court.
Hot Rod: I have nothing but contempt for this court.
Hot Rod: They're closing on us.
Kup: Yep, like the Shrikebats of Dromedon.
Hot Rod: How'd you beat them?
Kup: I'm trying to remember. There were an awful lot of casualties that day. Oh, yeah. We invented polarities!
Quintesson: Guilty or innocent?
Quintesson Judge: Innocent.
Quintesson: Feed them to the Sharkticons.
Galvatron: I'll rip open Ultra Magnus, and every other Autobot, until the Matrix has been destroyed!
Galvatron: Unicron! Unicron! Answer me! See this, the Matrix. I now possess that which you most fear.
[Unicron unleashes a booming roar]
Galvatron: You'll do my bidding or taste my wrath!
Unicron: [Galvatron struggling to open the Matrix] You underestimate me, Galvatron.
Unicron: [the planet Unicron begins to transform in front of a shocked Galvatron as he stumbles and falls on Unicron. Unicron transforms into his robot form] For a time, I considered sparing your wretched little planet, Cybertron. But now, you shall witness... its DISMEMBERMENT!
[Unicron flies towards Cybertron]
Unicron: [after giving Megatron a new body] Behold, Galvatron! And these shall be your minions.
[giving Thundercracker, Shrapnel and Kickback new bodies]
Unicron: Scourge, the tracker. And his huntsmen, the Sweeps.
[giving Skywarp and Bombshell new bodies]
Unicron: Cyclonus, the warrior. And his armada.
Optimus Prime: Ironhide, report to me at once.
Ironhide: Every time I look into a monitor Prime, my circuits sizzle. When are we going to start busting Deceptichops?
Optimus Prime: I want you to make a special run to Autobot City on Earth.
Ironhide: But, Prime!
Optimus Prime: Listen, Ironhide. We don't have enough energon cubes to power a full-scale assault. Ready the shuttle for launch!
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.
Megatron: Breach their defenses!
Kickback: Delicious, eh Shrapnel?
Shrapnel: A little heavy on the electrons, electrons...
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!
Hot Rod: The Matrix.
Galvatron: It will do you no good Autobot. It cannot be opened.
Hot Rod: Not by a Decepticon.
Galvatron: Like it or not, we are allies now against a common foe.
[shrill noises and bright lights surround Galvatron]
Unicron: Destroy him, Galvatron *now* or you, yourself shall be obliterated.
Galvatron: Of course, my master.
Galvatron: Puny Autobot. You lack even Prime's courage. Come out Autobot. We all must die sometime.
Hot Rod: Not today, Galvatron!
[Hot Rod tackles Galvatron. Galvatron then puts his hands around Hot Rod's throat and begins choking him]
Galvatron: Die, Autobot. First Prime, then Ultra Magnus, and now you. It's a pity you Autobots die so easily, or I might have a sense of satisfaction now.
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.
Kup: [to Hot Rod] Turbo roddin' young punk! I'll straighten you out yet.
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!
Unicron: [last words] Destiny... you cannot... destroy... my... DESTINY!
Wreck-Gar: Offer expires while you wait, operators are standing by.
Galvatron: How dare, Unicron! Cybertron and all its moons belong to me!
Scourge: But remember we belong to him.
Galvatron: I belong to nobody.
[Unicron tortures him]
Galvatron: I will obey, Unicron. Decepticons, to Earth!
Spike: This is Spike and Bumblebee up here on Moon Base Two.
Bumblebee: This thing, this monster planet, just ripped the first moon to shreds.
Spike: And it's heading this way.
Bumblebee: We'll try and slow it down.
Spike: But you'd better get here fast because we're not gonna...
[static obscures the messaage]
[Galvatron triumphantly holds the Matrix in his hand]
Galvatron: Unicron, my master... with this, I shall make you my slave.
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: [after landing on the planet of Junk and encountering the Junkions] Guns aren't exactly friendly.
Kup: Neither are they in case you haven't noticed!
[as Optimus Prime battles Megatron]
Hot Rod: I've got to help Prime!
Kup: Stay away, lad! That's Prime's fight.
Springer: Looks like you're bunking with me, Daniel!
Daniel: [surprised] All right!
Springer: But if you get space sick, you're gonna walk home.
Blurr: Without the Matrix, there is no hope, no hope, no hope, no hope at all!
Kup: Yep, I remember the dust was so thick on Beta 4, you had to use windshield wipers on your optic sensors.
Grimlock: Me Grimlock know all about wipers! Want to hear good part of story!
Swoop: Good part, Kup! Tell Swoop good part!
Kup: Okay, okay. Well, the dust was really thick, and this gigantic icthyac came tromping down the mountain, flames spewing out of its nostrils, and I thought for sure...
Hot Rod: Hey, Kup, don't you think we have better things to do now than tell old stories?
Kup: Like what?
Hot Rod: Like maybe figure out how we're gonna rescue our friends and then save Cybertron.
Grimlock: No! Tell story!
Springer: [Unicron self-destructing, Spike and Daniel find remaining Autobots] Spike! Daniel!
Spike: Springer, what's going on?
Springer: No time for that now! Let's get out of here!
[Autobots start to escape Unicron's hull]
[sees Hot Rod, now Rodimus Prime, running from the depths of Unicron]
Rodimus Prime: Autobots, transform and roll out!
[Spike and Daniel climb into transformed Rodimus Prime]
Kup: I always knew you had potential, lad.
[Autobots escape out Unicron's eye as he self-destructs]
Wheelie: Friend find, look behind!
Grimlock: Who say that?
[looks away from Wheelie]
Wheelie: Friend find, look behind! You go wrong way, you fool I say.
Grimlock: [seeing Wheelie] Me Grimlock fool?
Wheelie: Get me you got, no fool you not.
Grimlock: Me Grimlock no like you.
