QUOTES FROM Peter Cullen CHARACTERS

Lockdown
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!

Optimus Prime
[Groaning] Who sent you here?
Optimus Prime
Who sent you here?
Lockdown
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

Optimus Prime
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
How many more of my kind must be sacrificed?
Optimus Prime
After all we've done, humans are hunting us.
Cade Yeager
Will we ever see you again?
Optimus Prime
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
Teenagers...
Optimus Prime
I went through the same thing with Bumblebee.
Optimus Prime
I vowed to never kill a human, but whoever is responsible for this is going to die.
Optimus Prime
You have no soul!
Galvatron
That is why I have no fear!
Optimus Prime
You have no soul!
Galvatron
That is why I have no fear! You die!
Optimus Prime
Autobots, ROLL OUT!
Optimus Prime
Who sent you here?
Optimus Prime
This is not war, it's human extinction.
Sam Witwicky
Optimus?
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.
Optimus Prime
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
I think I know where to look.
Ratchet
His levels are faint. He locked himself away to guard the pillars.
Optimus Prime
Sentinel. You're coming home, old friend.
Optimus Prime
Ratchet, let's roll.
Optimus Prime
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
Who is it's captain?
Optimus Prime
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
And from a fellow space traveler, it's a true honor.
Optimus Prime
The honor is mine.
Sentinel Prime
So majestic and peaceful, this planet. Unlike the final days of 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
(Handing over the Matrix of Leadership) 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.
Roadbuster
Optimus!
Optimus Prime
Wreckers!
Roadbuster
We're coming!
Sentinel Prime
Optimus, all I ever wanted was the survival of our race. You must see why I had to betray you.
Optimus Prime
You didn't betray me. You betrayed yourself.
Sentinel Prime
No, Optimus!
Sergeant Epps
That is one scary-ass Decepticon!
Optimus Prime
They got my trailer. I need that flight tech. Shockwave can't hunt all of us at once. Wreckers, we need a diversion.
Roadbuster
Let's get some!
Leadfoot
You got that right!
Optimus Prime
We need to move before the fighters spot us. Wait here until we scout a route ahead. Let's roll.
Sideswipe
Ratchet, cover high.
Optimus Prime
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
That's suicide. The Cube is raw power. It could destroy you both.
Optimus Prime
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
We rolling!
Ironhide
Why are fighting to save the humans? They're a primitive and violent race.
Optimus Prime
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
The code. The code on these glasses indicates the All Spark is 230 miles from here.
Ratchett
I sense the Decepticons are getting ready to mobilize.
Ironhide
They must know it's here as well.
Jazz
What about Bumblebee? We can't just leave him to die and become some human experiment!
Optimus Prime
He'll die in vain if we don't accomplish our mission. Bumblebee is a brave soldier. This is what he would want.
Ironhide
The parents are very irritating. Can I take them out?
Optimus Prime
Ironhide, you know we don't harm humans. What is with you?
Ironhide
Well, I'm just saying we could. It's an option.
Optimus Prime
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
My grandfather.
Optimus Prime
It was an accident that intertwined our fates.
Mikaela Banes
Why are you here?
Optimus Prime
We are here looking for the All Spark, and we must find it before Megatron.
Sam Witwicky
Mega-what?
Optimus Prime
Our medical officer, Ratchet.
Ratchett
The boy's pheromone levels suggests he wants to mate with the female.
Jazz
What's cracking, little bitches?
Optimus Prime
My first lieutenant. Designation, Jazz.
Jazz
This looks like a cool place to kick it.
Sam Witwicky
What is that? How did he learn to talk like that?
Optimus Prime
We've learned Earth's languages through the World Wide Web.
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...
Optimus Prime
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
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
Humans don't deserve to live.
Optimus Prime
They deserve to choose for themselves!
Megatron
Then you will die WITH THEM!

Optimus, all I wanted was for the survival of our race. You must see why I had to betray you.
Optimus Prime
You didn't betray me. You betrayed yourself.
Sentinel Prime
No, Optimus!
Optimus Prime
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
Megatron!
Megatron
Priiiiime!
Optimus Prime
What if we leave.. and your wrong?!
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
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
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
We need a truce. All I wanted was to be the man in charge. Besides, who would you be without me, Prime?
Optimus Prime
Time to find out!
Optimus Prime
I'm coming for you!
Optimus Prime
Today, in the name of freedom, we take the battle to them!
Optimus Prime
Why, Sentinel, why?
Sentinel Prime
For Cybertron! For our home! What war destroyed, we can rebuild! But only if we join with the Decepticons.
Optimus Prime
No, it's not the only way! This is our home! We must defend the humans!
Sentinel Prime
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
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
It's not over...
Optimus Prime
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.

Die, like your brothers!

They were your brothers, too!
Optimus Prime
Before time began, there was the cube.
Optimus Prime
You may lose faith in us, but never in yourselves.
Optimus Prime
It's you and me Megatron.
Megatron
No it's just me, Prime!
Optimus Prime
At the end of this day, one shall stand, one shall fall.
Optimus Prime
Fate rarely calls upon us at a moment of our choosing.
Sam Witwicky
This isn't my war.
Optimus Prime
I fear it soon will be.
Ironhide
(to Sam)You feelin' lucky punk?!
Ironhide
[to Sam]You feelin' lucky punk?
Optimus Prime
Easy Ironhide.
Ironhide
Just kiddin',I just wanted to show him my cannons.
Sentinel Prime
I bring you Cybertron, your home, and still you choose humanity.
Optimus Prime
You were the one who taught me, freedom is everyone's right.

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.
