The Transformers: The Movie (1986)
Optimus Prime: Megatron must be stopped... no matter the cost.
Hot Rod: 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.
[the Decepticons try to see who is most fit to take over Decepticon leadership]
Scrapper: Wait, the Constructicons form Devastator, the most powerful robot. We should rule!
Soundwave: Soundwave superior. Constructions 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.
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.
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!
Allicon: "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.
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: Will anyone else attempt to fill his shoes?
Rumble: What did he say his name was?
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 but they're impossible, impossible, impossible!
Ultra Magnus: OK, 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: AH! My foot!
[before their 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.
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.
Springer: It's not hard to knock 'em down, it's getting them to stay down that's the trick!
Brawn: [Decepticons ambush Autobots on Autobot 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]
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 play back] 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.
Ultra Magnus: [straining] Open, damn it, open! Prime, you said the Matrix would light our darkest hour.
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.
[Matrix starts to fall to the ground. Hot Rod catches it, gives it to Ultra Magnus. Ultra Magnus inserts it inside. Prime dies]
Astrotrain: Jettison the weight or I'll never make it to Cybertron.
Starscream: Fellow Decepticons, Astrotrain has requested that we lighten our burden.
Kup: I can't transform.
Hot Rod: Keep trying.
Quintesson: Quiet or you'll be held in contempt of this court.
Hot Rod: I have nothing but contempt for this court.
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.
Spike: It isn't even dented! Oh shit! What are we going to do now?
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.
Blaster: Hey Perceptor, what's shaking? Other than this fortress?
Starscream: Astrotrain has requested that we lighten our burden.
Bonecrusher: In that case I say it is survival of the fittest!
Starscream: Do I hear a second on that?
Starscream: And against?
Injured Decepticons: Nay!
Starscream: The Ayes have it!
Ramjet: Git! Make room for others!
Injured Decepticons: Brothers! Don't!
[they throw the injured Decepticons off Astrotrain]
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.
Blurr: [speaking quickly] Absolutleypostivelydefinately! NobodycangetthejobdonefasterthanIcan. Nobodynobodynobody!
Kup: [the Decepticons are fleeing Autobot City] Prime did it! He turned the tide!
Perceptor: Do you think you got through to Prime?
Blaster: Let's hope so, 'cause if I didn't we're all gonna look like burnt out toaster ovens.
Cyclonus: You want me to gut Ultra Magnus?
Galvatron: There are plenty of Autobots for you. Ultra Magnus is mine!
Wheelie: Friend find, look behind! Friend find, look behind!
Grimlock: [Looks away from Wheelie]
Wheelie: 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!
Narrator: It is the year 2005. The treacherous Decepticons have conquered the Autobot's home planet of Cybertron. But, from secret staging grounds on two of Cybertron's moons the valiant Autobots plan to take back their homeland.
Starscream: Astrotrain, transform and get us out of here!
[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: [Daniel views the shuttle from a viewscope] Hot Rod, look, there's a hole in the shuttle!
Hot Rod: What?
Hot Rod: [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: [Blitzwing comes screaming over head very closely while shooting at the two]
Hot Rod: Save it, Kup!
Hot Rod: Let's *burn rubber*!
[Kup and Hot Rod both transform]
[Optimus has thrown Megatron to the ground]
Kup: Finish him off, Prime! Do it!
[Optimus 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!
Perceptor: Blaster! Ultra Magnus sent orders to contact Optimus Prime on Moon Base 1.
Blaster: All right. Cover your receptors Perceptor.
[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: Starrrrrrrscreammmmmmmmm!... argh!...
[Megatron's crumbled body disappears into space]
Hot Rod: Where'd 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.
Quintesson Judge: Sharkticons, execute them!
[stomps his foot]
Grimlock: Me, Grimlock, say, execute *them*!
[the Sharkticons think about it for a second and then attack the Quintessons]
Kup: I think the problems on this planet will be solved very shortly.
Hot Rod: I never thought I'd be so happy to see those big bozos.
Grimlock: Me, Grimlock, no bozo. Me king!
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.
Quintesson: Would you like to beg for your lives? It sometimes helps... but not often.
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: First Prime, then Ultra Magnus, and now you. It is a pity you Autobots die so easily, or I might have a sense of satisfaction.
Galvatron: [Galvatron has just destroyed Starscream] Will anyone else attempt to fill his shoes?
Rumble: What'd he say his name was?
Uninjured Decepticons: ALL HAIL GALVATRON! GALVATRON!
Galvatron: I'll rip open Ultra Magnus, and every other Autobot, until the Matrix has been destroyed!
Wreck-Gar: Yes friends, act now, destroy Unicron! Kill the Grand Poobah! Eliminate even the toughest stains!
[after being shot down, captured and imprisoned]
Hot Rod: We've got to get a new travel agent.
Blurr: We got Decepticons at the gates Decepticons in the air Decpticons inside the walls Decepticons Decpticons Decpticons. If we beat them off the walls they're sill 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.
[Unicron transforms in front of a shocked Galvatron]
Unicron: For a time, I considered sparing your wretched little planet, Cybertron. But now, you shall witness... its DISMEMBERMENT.
Perceptor: Ultra Magnus, a cursory evaluation of Decepticon capability indicates a distinct tactical deficiency!
Ultra Magnus: In other words, Perceptor...?
Springer: We're outnumbered!
Soundwave: Rumble, Frenzy, Ravage, Ratbat, eject! Operation: interference.
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!
Galvatron: I, Galvatron, will crush you just as Megatron crushed Prime!
Ultra Magnus: And you'll die trying just like Megatron.
Grimlock: Me, Grimlock, kick butt.
[he does, only to realize... ]
Grimlock: Me Grimlock need new strategy!
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!
Ultra Magnus: Perceptor, can you locate a place to set down for repairs?
Perceptor: Gamma waves in this sector of space create marginal navigation probablilites, 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 micro-second.
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: Yes 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.
Hot Rod: 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.
Ultra Magnus: Springer. You and Arcee transform Autobot City, Perceptor tell Blaster to radio Prime for reinforcements.
Blurr: [speaking 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 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 look after themselves. Come on!
[Arcee jumps and grabs on to the shuttle's hatch. Springer pulls Arcee in]
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!
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. Decipticons, to earth.
Spike: This is Spike and Bumblebee up here on Moon Base II.
Bumblebee: This thing, this monster planet, just ripped the first moon to shreds.
Spike: And it's heading this way.
Bumblebee: We'll try to hold it down.
Spike: But you'd better get here fast because we're not going to...
Kup: Grimlock, get your noodle outta my face!
Grimlock: Me, Grimlock, love Kup's war stories.
Kup: You're living one, now.
[Galvatron triumphantly holds the Matrix in his hand]
Galvatron: Unicron, my master... with this, I shall make you my slave.
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!
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 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: All right!
Springer: But if you get space sick you're walking your way 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: Ok, ok. 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!
Starscream: [Megatron has been gravely injured in his fight with Optimus Prime] How do you feel, mighty Megatron?
Starscream: [Starscream kicks Megatron]
Megatron: Soundwave, jam that transmission!
Soundwave: Rumble, Frenzy, Ravage, Ratbat, eject. Operation: interference.
Wreck-Gar: [about the Junkion ship] Framed in enamel! Resists fire, rain and corrosion for up to 5 years. Satisfaction guaranteed.
Junkions: Or your money back!
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]
