Optimus Primal: Ease off, Rattrap, it was an accident!
Rattrap: Says you!
Optimus Primal: That's right, says ME! You wanna question my orders one... more... time?
Rattrap: I... ahhh... I don't trust Predacons!
Megatron: Across the galaxy, it has come to this, Optimus Primal! Face to face, tooth to claw! Yeesss... Have you anything to say?
Optimus Primal: I'd say that's PRIME! Let's do it!
[as they duel on a narrow rock bridge, Optimus Primal nearly falls, but is rescued by Dinobot]
Optimus Primal: What are you doing? You'd won.
Dinobot: You slipped. To defeat you in such a manner would be lacking in honor. I would not have earned the right to lead. I prefer to beat my opponents the old-fashioned way... BRUTALLY!
[the fight continues]
Optimus Primal: For a Predacon, Dinobot, you have qualities I could like
Dinobot: And you... have proved to be a worthy adversary. I will have you recycled with full honors.
Optimus Primal: [lunges] Well, that's... just... PRIME!
[Optimus Primal defeats Dinobot]
Dinobot: I still live... finish it!
Optimus Primal: That's not how we Maximals do things.
Dinobot: Then that will have to CHANGE!
[uses his optic lasers on Optimus]
[Optimus Primal rescues Rattrap]
Optimus Primal: [no thanks received] You're welcome.
Rattrap: You're the leader. It's your... ah... job.
Dinobot: Face me, Optimus! I, Dinobot challenge you for leadership of the Maximals! You and I, one on one! The winner shall be leader, and the loser, well... it is a long way down!
Optimus Primal: I don't want to fight you!
Dinobot: You do not have a choice!
[the Maximals transform]
Optimus Primal: Defensive positions!
Rattrap: [about Dinobot] What about HIM?
Optimus Primal: He's with US!
Rattrap: I ain't buying it just 'cause YOU say so!
Optimus Primal: Admit defeat, Maximal! The Energon shall be ours!
Optimus Primal: Not if I can help it!
[Dinobot deflects a missile aimed at Optimus Primal, saving him]
Optimus Primal: Thanks.
Dinobot: My actions do not imply loyalty, Optimus. I owe you my life. Now we are merely... even.
Optimus Primal: I'll accept that.
Optimus Primal: You are welcome to join us, but you shall NOT lead!
Dinobot: I beg to differ! In preparation for my role as leader, I have already reprogrammed my activation code! Dinobot: MAXIMIZE!
[Cheetor and Rhinox transform to save Optimus and Dinobot]
Rattrap: Hey, hey, hey! YOU go an' get yourselves scrapped, 'cause I ain't...
[an annoyed Rhinox picks him up for the second time and glares at him]
Rattrap: All right, all right...
Optimus Primal: Surrender, Megatron! You're scrapped!
Megatron: NOOO! You shall NOT defeat me!
[about Dinobot's challenge towards Optimus Primal]
Rhinox: Don't WE get a say in this?
Rattrap: Let Chopperface and the boss monkey duke it out! Ain't no fur off of my tail...
Cheetor: No way! Hey, Scale Belly! How's about you try a piece of the fat kitty, huh?
[the energon mountain starts to vibrate... ]
Rhinox: It's gonna blow!
Cheetor: Time to fade, heroes!
Optimus Primal: We have to get there first... all FIVE of us!
Rattrap: Yeah, all five of us! You mean... Dinobot is... we're all gonna die. Hey, wait!
[runs after the Maximals]
Megatron: Well, this is an interesting sight, yeesss... Optimus and the traitor Dinobot, engaged in battle.
Scorponok: Who do you think's gonna win?
Waspinator: Oooooh, Waspinator bet on Optimus!
Tarantulas: [Chuckles] The winner isn't what interests me!
Megatron: Nor me, No. How much more preferable would it be if they BOTH lost, yeesss...
Optimus Primal: If you guys aren't doing anything...
[hanging from a narrow bridge by one leg]
Optimus Primal: ...a little SPEED would be PRIME!
Dinobot: Release me! Let me fall and save yourself!
Optimus Primal: Now where's the honor in that?
[Optimus Primal's grip weakens... ]
Dinobot: You have no choice.
Optimus Primal: Then we BOTH go!
[Both robots begin to fall, but Rhinox grabs Optimus]
Rhinox: Going up!
[pulls both robots up]
Rattrap: Oh, for bootin' up cold...! You're not gonna believe a PREDACON, are yah?
Optimus Primal: That's MY call!
Megatron: So much Energon... with a crystal that size, the Predacon forces will be unstoppable. Yeesss... for Maximals, and then the galaxy, will be ours to conquer!
Megatron: So much Energon, yeesss, I can almost taste its power...
Optimus Primal: It is over, Megatron!
Megatron: It is NEVER over! NOOO!
[transforms into robot mode]
Megatron: For if I must die, I shall take you with me!
[fires a missile at Optimus Primal]
Rattrap: Yeah, well, at least Megattron's gone, and so's the Energon, so it's over! Can we go home now?
Optimus Primal: No, Rattrap! For now, we're stranded here with the Predacons on this unknown planet. Megatron may be back, and there is still more Energon. If they ever get enough, they could conquer the galaxy. So for now, let the battle be here, on this strange primitive world, and let it be called... BEAST WARS!
