QUOTES FROM Peter Cullen CHARACTERS

Lockdown says: I feel sorry for you, Prime. Your legion, these humains. The trouble be [with] loyalty to a cause...is that the cause will always betray you!

Lockdown says: I feel sorry for you, Prime. Your legion, these humans. The trouble be with loyalty to a cause...is that the cause will always betray you!

Optimus Prime says: [Groaning] Who sent you here?

Optimus Prime says: Who sent you here?

Lockdown says: Where do you think you came from? [smirks] You think you where born? No...You were built! And your Creators want you back! [Walking away] We all work for someone!

Lockdown says: Where do you think you came from? You think you where born? No...you were built! And your Creators want you back! We all work for someone!

Optimus Prime says: There are mysteries to the universe we were never meant to solve, but who we are and why we are here, are not among them, those answers we carry inside.

Optimus Prime says: How many more of my kind must be sacrificed?

Optimus Prime says: After all we've done, humans are hunting us.

Cade Yeager says: Will we ever see you again?

Optimus Prime says: Cade Yeager, I do not know. But whenever you look to the stars, think of one of them as my soul. Defend this family, Autobots. As they have you. Defend all they can be.

Cade Yeager says: Teenagers...

Optimus Prime says: I went through the same thing with Bumblebee.

Optimus Prime says: I vowed to never kill a human, but whoever is responsible for this is going to die.

Optimus Prime says: You have no soul!

Galvatron says: That is why I have no fear!

Optimus Prime says: You have no soul!

Galvatron says: That is why I have no fear! You die!

Optimus Prime says: Autobots, ROLL OUT!

Optimus Prime says: Who sent you here?

Optimus Prime says: This is not war, it's human extinction.

Sam Witwicky says: Optimus?

Optimus Prime says: What your leaders say is true. This was all my fault. I told them whom to trust. I was so wrong.

Sam Witwicky says: That doesn't make it your fault. It just makes you human for a change.

Optimus Prime says: Remember this. You may lose your faith in us, but never in yourselves.

Optimus Prime says: They're surrounding the city to make a fortress, so that no one can see what they're up to inside. Our only chance is the element of surprise.

Sam Witwicky says: I think I know where to look.

Ratchet says: His levels are faint. He locked himself away to guard the pillars.

Optimus Prime says: Sentinel. You're coming home, old friend.

Optimus Prime says: Ratchet, let's roll.

Optimus Prime says: The ship's name was the Ark. I watched it escape Cybertron myself. It was carrying an Autobot technology which would've won us the war. And it's captain.

Charlotte says: Who is it's captain?

Optimus Prime says: The great Sentinel Prime, the technology's inventor. He was commander of the Autobots before me. It's imperative that I find it before the Decepticons learn of its location. Our Autobot spacecraft has the ability to get there. And. . . you must pray it's in time.

Buzz Aldrin says: And from a fellow space traveler, it's a true honor.

Optimus Prime says: The honor is mine.

Sentinel Prime says: So majestic and peaceful, this planet. Unlike the final days of Cybertron.

Optimus Prime says: I've wondered what might have been, if you had fought the final battle instead of me.

Sentinel Prime says: Never mourn the past, young warrior. Thanks to you, our race survives.

Optimus Prime says: (Handing over the Matrix of Leadership) You were our leader, Sentinel. It is your right to lead us again.

Sentinel Prime says: In a world I do not know, I am no longer your teacher, Optimus. You are mine.

Roadbuster says: Optimus!

Optimus Prime says: Wreckers!

Roadbuster says: We're coming!

Sentinel Prime says: Optimus, all I ever wanted was the survival of our race. You must see why I had to betray you.

Optimus Prime says: You didn't betray me. You betrayed yourself.

Sentinel Prime says: No, Optimus!

Sergeant Epps says: That is one scary-ass Decepticon!

Optimus Prime says: They got my trailer. I need that flight tech. Shockwave can't hunt all of us at once. Wreckers, we need a diversion.

Roadbuster says: Let's get some!

Leadfoot says: You got that right!

Optimus Prime says: We need to move before the fighters spot us. Wait here until we scout a route ahead. Let's roll.

Sideswipe says: Ratchet, cover high.

Optimus Prime says: You all know there's only one way to end this war. We must destroy the Cube. If all else fails, I will unite it with the spark in my chest.

Ratchett says: That's suicide. The Cube is raw power. It could destroy you both.

Optimus Prime says: A necessary sacrifice to bring peace to this planet. We can not let the humans pay for our mistakes. It's been an honor serving with you all. Autobots, roll out!

Jazz says: We rolling!

Ironhide says: Why are fighting to save the humans? They're a primitive and violent race.

Optimus Prime says: Were we so different? They're a young species. They have much to learn. But I've seen goodness in them. Freedom is the right of all sentient beings.

Optimus Prime says: The code. The code on these glasses indicates the All Spark is 230 miles from here.

Ratchett says: I sense the Decepticons are getting ready to mobilize.

Ironhide says: They must know it's here as well.

Jazz says: What about Bumblebee? We can't just leave him to die and become some human experiment!

Optimus Prime says: He'll die in vain if we don't accomplish our mission. Bumblebee is a brave soldier. This is what he would want.

Ironhide says: The parents are very irritating. Can I take them out?

Optimus Prime says: Ironhide, you know we don't harm humans. What is with you?

Ironhide says: Well, I'm just saying we could. It's an option.

Optimus Prime says: Our planet was once a powerful empire, peaceful and just, until we were betrayed by Megatron, leader of the Decepticons. All who defied them were destroyed. Our war finally consumed the planet, and the All Spark was lost to the stars. Megatron followed it to Earth, where Captain Witwicky found him.

Sam Witwicky says: My grandfather.

Optimus Prime says: It was an accident that intertwined our fates.

Mikaela Banes says: Why are you here?

Optimus Prime says: We are here looking for the All Spark, and we must find it before Megatron.

Sam Witwicky says: Mega-what?

Optimus Prime says: Our medical officer, Ratchet.

Ratchett says: The boy's pheromone levels suggests he wants to mate with the female.

Jazz says: What's cracking, little bitches?

Optimus Prime says: My first lieutenant. Designation, Jazz.

Jazz says: This looks like a cool place to kick it.

Sam Witwicky says: What is that? How did he learn to talk like that?

Optimus Prime says: We've learned Earth's languages through the World Wide Web.

Optimus Prime says: 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...

Optimus Prime says: Earth, birthplace of the human race. A species much like our own, capable of great compassion and great violence. For in our quest to protect the humans, a deeper revelation dawns: our worlds have met before...

Optimus Prime says: With the All Spark gone, we cannot return life to our planet. And fate has yielded its reward: a new world to call home. We live among its people now, hiding in plain sight, but watching over them in secret, waiting, protecting. I have witnessed their capacity for courage, and though we are worlds apart, like us, there's more to them than meets the eye. I am Optimus Prime and I send this message to any surviving Autobots taking refuge among the stars. We are here. We are waiting.

Megatron says: Humans don't deserve to live.

Optimus Prime says: They deserve to choose for themselves!

Megatron says: Then you will die WITH THEM!

Sentinel Prime says: Optimus, all I wanted was for the survival of our race. You must see why I had to betray you.

Optimus Prime says: You didn't betray me. You betrayed yourself.

Sentinel Prime says: No, Optimus!

Optimus Prime says: Before time began, there was the Cube. We know not where it comes from, only that it hold the power to create worlds and fill them with life. That is how our race was born. For a time we lived in harmony, but like all great power, some wanted it for good, others for evil. And so began the war. A war that ravaged our planet until it was consumed by death, and the Cube was lost to the far reaches of space. We scattered across the galaxy, hoping to find and rebuild our home. Searching every star, every world. And just when all hope seemed lost, message of a new discovery drew us to an unknown planet called...Earth. But we were already too late.

Optimus Prime says: Megatron!

Megatron says: Priiiiime!

Optimus Prime says: What if we leave.. and your wrong?!

Optimus Prime says: 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 says: You picked the wrong planet! Give me your face! (tears off the Fallen's face and spears him with his staff) I rise... You fall...

Optimus Prime says: You picked the wrong planet! Give me your face! [tears off the Fallen's face and spears him with his staff] I rise... You fall...

Megatron says: We need a truce. All I wanted was to be the man in charge. Besides, who would you be without me, Prime?

Optimus Prime says: Time to find out!

Optimus Prime says: I'm coming for you!

Optimus Prime says: Today, in the name of freedom, we take the battle to them!

Optimus Prime says: Why, Sentinel, why?

Sentinel Prime says: For Cybertron! For our home! What war destroyed, we can rebuild! But only if we join with the Decepticons.

Optimus Prime says: No, it's not the only way! This is our home! We must defend the humans!

Sentinel Prime says: So lost you are, Optimus. On Cybertron, we were gods! And here, they call us machines. Let the humans serve us, or perish! (walks away) You're lucky I didn't kill you. In time, you'll see.

Sentinel Prime says: So lost you are, Optimus. On Cybertron, we were gods! And here, they call us machines. Let the humans serve us, or perish! [walks away] You're lucky I didn't kill you. In time, you'll see.

Optimus Prime says: It's not over...

Optimus Prime says: In every war, there are calms between storms.There will be days when you loose faith in some of us, days when our allies turn against us , but the day will never come if we forsake this planet and its people.

Optimus Prime says: In every war, there are calms between storms. There will be days when you loose faith in some of us, days when our allies turn against us, but the day will never come if we forsake this planet and its people.

The Fallen says: Die, like your brothers!

Optimus Prime says: They were your brothers, too!

Optimus Prime says: Before time began, there was the cube.

Optimus Prime says: You may lose faith in us, but never in yourselves.

Optimus Prime says: It's you and me Megatron.

Megatron says: No it's just me, Prime!

Optimus Prime says: At the end of this day, one shall stand, one shall fall.

Optimus Prime says: Fate rarely calls upon us at a moment of our choosing.

Sam Witwicky says: This isn't my war.

Optimus Prime says: I fear it soon will be.

Ironhide says: (to Sam)You feelin' lucky punk?!

Ironhide says: [to Sam]You feelin' lucky punk?

Optimus Prime says: Easy Ironhide.

Ironhide says: Just kiddin',I just wanted to show him my cannons.

Sentinel Prime says: I bring you Cybertron, your home, and still you choose humanity.

Optimus Prime says: You were the one who taught me, freedom is everyone's right.

Optimus Prime says: we will kill them all

Optimus Prime says: We will kill them all.

Optimus Prime says: 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.

Optimus Prime says: "Remember this: you may lose you faith in us but never in yourselves."

Optimus Prime says: Remember this: you may lose you faith in us but never in yourselves.

Optimus Prime says: Our races united, by a history long forgotten, and a future we shall face, together. I am Optimus Prime, and I send this message so that our pasts will always be rememberd, for in those memories, we live on.

Optimus Prime says: With the All Spark gone, we cannot return life to our planet. But faith has yielded its reward, a new world to call: home. We live among its people now, hiding in plain sight, but watching over them in secret. Waiting, protecting.
