Optimus Prime: In any war, there are calms between the storms. There will be days when we lose faith, days when our allies turn against us. But the day will never come, that we forsake this planet and its people.
Simmons: Years from now they're going to ask us: where were you when they took over the planet? We're gonna say: we stood by and watched.
Que: Ah, good, you're here. My name's Que. I do hope you have answers for him. I've never seen him so upset!
Lennox: Optimus, you remember Charlotte Mearing, our director of National Intelligence?
[Optimus stays in truck mode]
Dino: He's in a bad mood. He's not talking to anybody today.
Mearing: What is this, the silent treatment?
Ironhide: We've seen that and this is not that.
Que: Definitely not!
Ironhide: This is worse. Prime, make something of yourself!
[bangs fist on top of Optimus's cab, Optimus transforms]
Ironhide: He's pissed.
Prime: [pounds the ground] You lied to us! Everything humans know of our planet we were told had all been shared!
[points to component]
Optimus Prime: So why was this found in human possession?
Sentinel Prime: Optimus... all I ever wanted... was the survival of our race... You must see why I had to betray you...
Optimus Prime: [picks up Megatron's gun] You didn't betray me, Sentinel. You betrayed yourself.
[takes aim at Sentinel]
Sentinel Prime: No. NO, OPTIMUS...!
Megatron: Now, we need a truce. All I want is to be back in charge. Besides, who would you be without me, Prime?
Optimus Prime: Time to find out!
[attacks Megatron and beheads him]
Optimus Prime: What your leaders say is true: this was all my fault. I told them whom to trust. I was so wrong.
Sam Witwicky: That doesn't make it your fault, it just makes you human for a change.
Optimus Prime: Remember this: you may lose your faith in us, but never in yourselves.
Sam Witwicky: I need to know
how you're going to fight back. I know there's a strategy, I know you're coming back with reinforcements, something. I know there's a plan. You can tell me, no other human will ever know.
Optimus Prime: There is no plan.
Sam Witwicky: If we just do what they want, how are we ever going to live with ourselves?
You are my friend Sam, you always will be. But your leaders have spoken. From here the fight will be your own.
Lennox: What the hell was that thing?
Optimus Prime: That is Shockwave.
Sam Witwicky: [to Lennox] We gotta get Sentinel outta here, he is the key to all this...
Sentinel Prime: Indeed I am! What you must realize my Autobot brothers, is we were never going to win the war! For the sake of our planet's survival, a deal had to be made... with Megatron!
Lennox: GET BACK!
Ironhide: [rusting away] Sentinel... what have you done?
Sentinel Prime: [to Ironhide] I hereby discharge you from duty!
[shoots Ironhide again]
Simmons: Don't worry, I speak their language.
[doorman opens sliding hatch]
Simmons: Do svidaniya.
Russian Bouncer: That means goodbye!
Sentinel Prime: So majestic and peaceful, this planet. Unlike the final days on Cybertron.
Optimus Prime: I've wondered what might have been, if you had fought the final battle instead of me.
Sentinel Prime: Never mourn the past, young warrior. Thanks to you, our race survives.
Optimus Prime: [offers the
Matrix to Sentinel] You were our leader, Sentinel. it is your right to lead us again.
Sentinel Prime: In a world I do not know, I am no longer your teacher, Optimus, you are mine.
Sentinel Prime: [mercilessly beating Optimus Prime] We were gods once, all of us! But here...
Optimus Prime: Please...!
Sentinel Prime: ...there can only be ONE!
[raises his lance...]
Megatron: [attacks Sentinel from behind] This is MY planet!
Optimus Prime: We were once a peaceful race of intelligent mechanical beings. But then came the war between the Autobots, who fought for freedom and the Decepticons, who dreamt of tyranny. Overmatched and outnumbered, our defeat was all but certain. But in the wars final days, one Autobot ship escaped the battle. It was carrying a secret cargo, which would
have changed our planet's fate. A desperate mission, our final hope...
[the Ark flies from Cybertron into space... and is gunned down]
Optimus Prime: A hope that vanished.
[Buzz Aldrin and Optimus Prime meet]
Buzz Aldrin: From a fellow space traveller, it's an honour meeting you.
Optimus Prime: The honour is mine.
Laserbeak: What... did you say... to Witwicky?
Jerry Wang: Oh, shit...
[pulls two guns on Laserbeak]
Jerry Wang: Who wants some chicken dinner now, bitch? Huh? 'Cause somebody messed with the wrong Wang today!
Charlotte Mearing: CIA's up my ass about this mystery raid in the Middle East. So it's time to come clean. Was your unit involved?
Lennox: Uh, I'm not sure ma'am.
Charlotte Mearing: As director of National Intelligence, I'm a really big fan of intelligent answers.
Lennox: I really can't tell you definitively.
These Autobots are like teenage kids, they like to sneak out of the house every once in a while.
Optimus Prime: [shoots down the ship attacking Sam and Epps] We will kill them all! Your leaders will now understand: Decepticons will never leave your planet alone. And we needed them to believe we had gone. For today, in the name of freedom, we take the battle to them!
[other Autobots appear]
Sam Witwicky: I saw your ship blow up!
Roadbuster: The ship? We were never in the ship! We designed the damn thing, didn't we?
Leadfoot: We were hidden in the first booster rocket to seperate - splashed down back in the Atlantic, just as planned.
Leadfoot: We ain't going nowhere!
Brains: Yeah, no one's exiling us!
Wheelie: The Autobots are staying right here. We're gonna help you win this war!
Sentinel Prime: How doomed you are, Autobots. You simply fail to understand, that the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few...
[Ironhide and Sideswipe vs Crankcase and Hatchet]
Sideswipe: Whoa, we got us a little Mexican standoff!
Ironhide: Weapons down!
Sideswipe: And we'll let you escape with your dignity!
[Cybertron looms above Chicago]
Megatron: Cybertron... you are saved, at last.
[Carly approaches Megatron]
Megatron: Oh, have you come to surrender?
Carly Miller: Was it all worth it?
Carly Miller: All your work to bring Sentinel back, and now clearly
he has all the power! It's actually almost tragic!
Megatron: YOU DARE LECTURE ME, SLAVE?
Carly Miller: Your Decepticons finally conquering this planet, and yet their leader won't be you!
Megatron: It will be me! It will always be me!
Carly Miller: In any minute now you'll be nothing but Sentinel's
[Megatron snarls and rises]
Robert Epps: Where are Sam and Carly?
Robert Epps: I give you one thing to do, one thing to do, and you drop the ball on that?
Eddie: I ain't signed up for all this! Got aliens blasting at me, running around, chasing me! I'm ducking through churches and buildings and all that kind of crap! This is
bullshit! I ain't signed up for this, Epps. I'm trying to keep it together.
