  • Episode Description
  • Gears is in one very foul mood, so nothing is really new there. However, the Decepticons suddenly strike and get the drop on him. The thing is, all they want from him is his personality cartridge. Now, Gears has one heck of a sunny disposition no matter who he is around. Meanwhile, the Decepticons have the final component for the space needle. If they aren't stopped, the sun itself will be destroyed.moreless

    • Starscream: I should have destroyed you when I had the chance, but Megatron can't save you now! Gears: Heh heh heh! I really hate to disappoint you Starscream, but you'd better look behind you! Starscream: Do you seriously expect me to fall for such a stupid trick? (Bumblebee rams Starscream from behind)

    • Optimus Prime: Alert! Alert! Autobots, assemble at once! (Several Autobots run to the main area of the Ark, Gears is taking his time) Gears: Aah wouldn't you know it? Every time I get sent to lube my cable relays, something happens. Ironhide: Action first, Gears. Maintenance later! Gears: That's easy for you to say, your pulleys don't squeak! (Bumblebee jumps onto Gears's shoulders then somersaults off) Bumblebee: Your squeakin's not the problem, it's your squawkin!

    • Starscream: (shoots at Gears) This time I shall show you no mercy! Gears: (dodging the blasts) Right! This time the only thing your gonna show me is... (tackles Starscream) your caboose! (Gears throws Starscream into Soundwave)
