[the Decepticons clear a path through the dense jungle on their way to their spaceship, carelessly destroying the vegetation]
Rumble: Nice scenery.
Scavenger: Yeah! Let's waste it! I hate nice things.
[Starscream shoots at trees, but misses to his disappointment]
Rumble: He-he-he, good shot, Starscream!
Starscream: [angrily pointing his arm-cannon at Rumble] Shut up or I'll blast you, punk!
[Starscream does not notice that huge python is about to drop on top of him]
Rumble: [notices the python] Hey, hold that pose! I wanna remember you that way!
[the python drops on top of Starscream, wrapping itself around him]
Starscream: Uhhh! Help! Get this thing off me! Oh-oh-uhh!
[the Decepticons burst out laughing at Starscream's predicament]
Rumble: [laughs nastily] I think it looks stunning on ya! He-he-he!
[a leopard attacks Ravage. Using his weapons, Ravage fights it off]
Starscream: Enough of this! Let's fly! Uuh!
[at last, Starscream manages to shake off the python]
Megatron: No! We must remain on the ground to avoid satellite detection.
Brawn: [to Perceptor while he is fixing Ironhide] Real work is crushing Decepticons, not fussing with chips!
Perceptor: If I didn't "fuss with chips," you couldn't crush Decepticons.
[Perceptor fixes Ironhide's memory microchip]
Brawn: Oh, bah!
Bumblebee: Hey, lay off, Brawn! Perceptor's as important as any of us!
Brawn: So where is he when we're fighting?
Perceptor: It takes more than muscle to fight.
Brawn: Yeah, it takes courage! Or maybe that word is not in your fancy vocabulary!
Bumblebee: [clutches his fists] Leave him alone, Brawn, or you're gonna tangle with me!
Brawn: [sneers] Oh, I'm shakin' in my proton boots...
[after scaring off the archaeologists, the Decepticons cut a hole in the spaceship hull, revealing small shining crystal - the "Heart of Cybertron"]
Megatron: After millions of years, it's mine! Hook, your cyber-forceps.
[Hook gives Megatron his cyber-forceps. Megatron uses them to remove the Heart]
Megatron: The Heart of Cybertron! This tiny energy maximizer powered our ship all the way from Cybertron to this miserable planet.
[Megatron places the Heart in Hook's palm]
Hook: And what will you do with it now?
Megatron: Implant it inside me.
[Megatron lies on the ground, opening his chest-lid. Hook implants the Heart inside Megatron's chest]
Hook: [closing Megatron's chest-lid] It is done, Megatron.
Megatron: I know...
[Megatron rises on his feet]
Megatron: ...for already the power courses through my circuits!
Optimus Prime: You'll need every bit of it, Megatron! Autobots, attack!
[using his new power, Megatron shoots beams of energy from his fingers, hitting Optimus Prime. Optimus Prime collapses, smoke rises from his chest]
Megatron: Come on, Autobots! Follow your leader's orders and attack!
[Megatron shoots at the Autobots more energy beams]
[after being defeated by Megatron, the Autobots return to their base, most of them severely damaged. Perceptor and Sparkplug are shocked to see them]
Brawn: [pointing angrily at Perceptor] Funny. You don't have a scratch on you...
Optimus Prime: Brawn, lay off Perceptor! If I hear one more word against him, you'll answer to me.
Brawn: Do you have any better ideas, or is your intelligence as fleeting as your courage?
Perceptor: As a matter of fact, I do: get inside Megatron and disconnect the heart of Cybertron.
Brawn: Are you defective? How're we gonna do that?
Perceptor: Simple: we use my trans-mat reduction beam to shrink down to microscopic size. Then, we crawl into Megatron and rip the blasted heart out!
Optimus Prime: What do you think of his intelligence now, Brawn?
Brawn: [reluctantly] Uh, I reserve judgment.
Optimus Prime: You and Bumblebee go with him. Powerglide, can you fly?
Perceptor: Like a bird!
[Perceptor, Bumblebee and Brawn stand under the reduction beam]
Perceptor: Now we'll show Megatron that bad things come in small packages!
[Perceptor activates the beam. The beam reduces the three of them to microscopic size]
[Perceptor, Brawn and Bumblebee, after being reduced to microscopic size, managed to get into Megatron's body, in search for the Heart of Cybertron]
Perceptor: The Heart of Cybertron must be in Megatron's chest, and we've got less than two hours to get to it.
Bumblebee: Why is that?
Perceptor: Because the reductor beam will wear off, and we'll return to normal size.
Brawn: [sarcastically] Now you tell us!
Bumblebee: Yeah, and Megatron ain't big enough for the three of us.
[Perceptor is nearly crushed between gears. Brawn rescues him in the last second]
Brawn: [panting] Some hero! Next time, stay home!
[Perceptor, Brawn and Bumblebee approach Megatron's brain]
Brawn: Then I got a honey of an idea. Let's bash brain!
Perceptor: No, Brawn! It's too dangerous!
[Brawn ignores Perceptor and walks toward Megatron's brain. Perceptor and Bumblebee grab Brawn and try to pull him away]
Bumblebee: Listen to Perceptor! He's right!
[Brawn, being stronger than the other Autobots, gets free easily]
[Megatron approaches the Autobots' headquarters. Unknown to him, Brawn is about to destroy his brain, ignoring Perceptor's warning]
Perceptor: [to Brawn] If you destroy his brain, he'll fall. The impact could detonate the Heart of Cybertron!
Brawn: It's our only chance.
[Megatron raises his hands, ready to fire at the Autobots, using the power of the Heart of Cybertron. Inside him, as Brawn approaches Megatron's brain, strange things - resembling metallic serpents with sinister expression - coming out of the brain]
Brawn: What are they?
Perceptor: Brain impulses. Evil brain impulses!
[Megatron opens fire, striking the Autobots. Inside him, one of the brain impulses chases Bumblebee]
[the brain impulse wraps itself around Bumblebee's neck, makes him fall down]
[after Perceptor watches intently the brain impulses, he snaps his fingers, as he realizes that they are heading for specific location]
Perceptor: Got it!
[Warpath charges at Megatron, but his shots do not harm Megatron. Megatron shoots and strikes him. Meanwhile, Brawn frees Bumblebee from the impulse. Grabbing it by its "tail" and swinging it, Brawn smashes the impulse]
Perceptor: That's Megatron's database conveying orders to the Heart of Cybertron. If we can hitch a ride, it'll lead us straight to it!
[Bumblebee notices that one more brain impulse coming out of Megatron's brain]
Bumblebee: Here comes one!
Perceptor: Grab it!
[the three Autobots jump astride on the brain impulse. It carries them to the Heart]
Perceptor: [as they get closer to the Heart] There it is! Jump!
[the Autobots jump off the impulse, as it absorbs into the Heart. Meanwhile, Megatron continue shooting at Warpath. The impact causes Warpath to turn on his side and fall upside down]
Brawn: Let's rip the wires and get out of here!
[Brawn bends down to rip the wires which connect the Heart to Megatron]
Perceptor: [stops Brawn] No! This thing's like a hyper bomb. One wrong move and the whole planet is rubble!
[Megatron approaches the force-field which protects Optimus Prime, Ratchet and Wheeljack]
Megatron: [scornfully] Do you think a mere force shield can stop me?
[as Megatron is about to shoot, Perceptor grabs one of the wires and rips it. Bumblebee pulls Perceptor by his shoulder, saving him from being hit by another brain impulse. Megatron opens fire at the force-field]
Perceptor: [pants] Thanks, Bumblebee!
[Perceptor continues ripping the wires. Bumblebee and Brawn notice more brain impulses heading toward Perceptor]
Brawn: Perceptor, look out!
[at the last memont, Perceptor jumps aside. Megatron continues firing relentlessly. Watching the intensive stream of brain impulses into the Heart, the three microbots realize what Megatron is doing]
Brawn: He must be pounding the living daylights out of the Autobots!
Perceptor: [pants] One... last... wire... uhh...
[Perceptor tries to reach the wire]
Perceptor: Can't... make it...
[Perceptor keeps trying to reach the last wire, but he is repeatedly shoved backwards by the brain impulses]
[as Megatron continues firing at the force-field, it is finally destroyed, leaving Optimus Prime, Ratchet and Wheeljack at the mercy of Megatron]
Ratchet: The force field is down!
[Megatron ceases fire in order to savour his moment of victory - and that proves to be his undoing. Now that the stream of brain impulses stopped for a moment, at last Perceptor can reach the last wire]
Perceptor: Ohh! Got to... disconnect it!
[Perceptor grabs the last wire, preparing to rip it. Unaware of what is happening inside him, Megatron is overconfident of his seemingly imminent victory]
Megatron: It's all over, Prime!
Optimus Prime: Not until every Autobot program is erased, Megatron!
Megatron: You're finished! Ehh!
[Megatron raises his hands... but no fire bolts are shot from his fingers]
Ratchet: Perceptor did it!
[the microbots are running back to the gap at Megatron's shoulder, Brawn carries the Heart of Cybertron. They grow bigger in size with each step]
Bumblebee: [pants] Is it my imagination, or is this tunnel getting tighter?
Perceptor: It's us! We're returning to our normal size. We've got to get out of here!
Optimus Prime: Now we'll see who's finished!
[Optimus Prime opens fire at Megatron, hits him severely, striking him down. As Megatron lies down, the three Autobots coming out of his body, returning to their normal size while stepping on Megatron's body. Megatron recovers in time to see Bumblebee stepping on him]
Bumblebee: Uh... excuse us!
Megatron: [standing on his feet, furious at his failure] You... filthy retro-rats! Uhhh!
[Megatron flies away]
Wheeljack: He's getting away! Stop him!
Perceptor: No! Wait! We've got the Heart of Cybertron!
Brawn: But it's destabilizing! It could explode at any second!
[Brawn throws the Heart of Cybertron with all his might to deep space]
Optimus Prime: Track it, Perceptor!
Perceptor: I'm on it!
[Perceptor transforms into telescope]
Perceptor: One thousand miles... fifteen-hundred miles... two thousand miles!
[as the Heart is far enough from Earth, Perceptor shoots at it, striking his target. The explosion fills the sky with bright light rays. Everyone realizes what disaster could have happened if the Heart had exploded on Earth]
Optimus Prime: Sharp shooting, Perceptor.
[Perceptor transforms back into robot]
Ratchet: [places his hand on Bumblebee's shoulder] Do you realize that we just saved Megatron's life?
Brawn: Somebody saved *all* our lives!
Optimus Prime: Who, Brawn?
Brawn: [places his hand on Perceptor's shoulder] Ask my buddy here about it, and ask him polite, because anyone who doesn't think he's a hero - is gonna have to answer to me!
[Brawn pats amiably on Perceptor's chest]
