  • Quotes

    • Shockwave: (Leaving a message to Megatron) If the Elite Guard is able to contact Optimus and his crew on Earth, my cover will be blown any nanosecond. If you receive this message, know that I am taking matters into my own servos. Shockwave out.

    • Optimus Prime: Prowl! Bulkhead! Step away from Wasp. Innocent or not, he may still be a threat.
      Bulkhead: Oh it's okay, it's really Bumblebee. I know because I knocked a building on Sentinel and he told me!

    • Sentinel Prime: I don't have time to listen to your lame excuses, Optimus, I have an Autobot traitor to find.
      Optimus Prime: Oh, you mean the one you just let get away?

    • Wasp: Alright, you caught Wasp! But Wasp was good bot once, until Bumblebot ruined Wasp!
      Bulkhead: No, Wasp. You were always mean to me and Bumblebee. You may not be a traitor, but you were never a good bot.

    • Wasp: (As Bumblebee) Me, an imposter? Sarge, you remember in boot camp, when I dropped all those oil barrels on top of you?
      Sentinel Prime: No.
      Wasp: What about when I exploded a box of pink paint in your face?
      Sentinel Prime: Nuh-uh.
      Wasp: How about when I broadcasted all those horrible things you said about Ultra Magnus over the loudspeaker?
      Sentinel Prime: No, it doesn't jog my cir... Wait a nanoclick, that was you?!

    • Jazz: So hit me with that one more time. A robot in disguise swaps metal with a double agent who's really on the level?
      Bulkhead: Makes even less sense when you say it.

    • Optimus Prime: (About Sentinel Prime) How do you put up with him?
      Jazz: I just tune out half of everything he spits up.
      Optimus Prime: Only half?

    • Bumblebee: Wasp! What are you doing here?
      Wasp: Oh, not much. Just seeking revenge on the bot who ruined Wasp's life!
