Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen
Revenge Takes Many Forms
For the last 2 years, 
an advanced team of new Autobots has taken refuge here under my commands.
Together, we form an alliance with the humans: 
a secret but brave squat of soldiers, a classified strike team called NEST.
We hunt for what remains of our Decepticon foes,
hiding in different countires around the world.
~Optimus Prime

Ironhide: Punk-ass, Decepticon!
Optimus Prime: Any last words?
Wheelbot: This is not your planet to rule. The Fallen shall rise again.
Epps: That doesn't sound good.
Optimus Prime: Not today. [shoot Wheelbot]

When you go, he goes.
I cannot live with a psychotic alien in my garage!
~Judy Witwicky, about Bumblebee

You're an Autobot.
You shouldn't be living in my dad's garage.
You're suffocating in here. You deserve better than this.
The guardian thing is done. You did your job. I'm safe now.
You need to go be with Optimus Prime and the others.
~Sam, to Bumblebee.

You'll always be my first car.
Love you, Bee.
~Sam, to Bumblebee

You gotta wonder, if God made us in his image, who made him?
~Epps, about Optimus Prime

Galloway: Under the classified Alien/Autobot Cooperation Act,
you agreed to share your intel with us, but not your advancements in weaponry.
Optimus Prime: We've witnessed your human capacity for war.
It would absolutely bring more harm than good.
Galloway: But who are you to judge what's best for us?
Lennox: With all due respect, we've been fighting side by side in the field for 2 years.
Epps: We've shed blood, sweat, and precious metal together.
Galloway, to Epps: Soldier, you're paid to shoot, not talk.
Epps, mumbling: Don't tempt me!
Galloway: And the newest members of your team...
I understand they arrived here after you sent a message into space,
an open invitation to come to earth,
vetted by no one at The White House.
General Morshower: Let me stop you right there, Mr. Galloway.
It was vetted right here.
And in my experience, the judgement of both Major Lennox and his team
has always been above reproach.
Galloway: Well, be that as it may, General,
it is the position of the President that when our national security is at stake,
no one is above reproach.

Galloway: So let me ask, 
if we ultimately conclude that our national security is best served
by denying your further asylum on our planet,
will you leave peacefully?
Optimus Prime: Freedom is your right.
If you make that request, we will honor it.
But before your President decides, please ask him this.
What if we leave, and you're wrong?

Optimus Prime: I'm here for your help, Sam,
because your leaders believe we brought vengeance upon your planet.
Perhaps they are right.
That is why they must be reminded by another human of the trust we share.
Sam: This isn't my war.
Optimus Prime: Not yet, but I fear it soon will be.

Sam: I'm sorry, I really am.
Optimus Prime: Sam, fate rarely calls upon us at a moment of our choosing.
Sam: You're Optimus Prime, you don't need me.
Optimus Prime: We do, more than you know.

Fallen: For millenia, I have dreamed of my return to that wretched planet
where I, too, was once betrayed by The Primes I called my brothers.
Only a Prime can defeat me, and now, only one remains.
Megatron: Optimus! He protects the boy.
Fallen: Then the boy will lead us to him and revenge will be ours.

[whispering argue at the library]
Mikaela: I can tell that you really missed me a lot, Sam!
Sam: Look, it's not my fault, okay?
Mikaela: It's not your fault?
Sam: Listen, I'm a victim!
Mikaela: You're a victim? Of what? A little 80-pound girl?
Sam: Of molestation.
It was like getting humped in the neck by a mountain ox!
Mikaela: You didn't have to put your tongue in her mouth!
Sam: I didn't!
Mikaela: You did!
Sam: Look, you ever had your stomach tongued by a mountain ox with a 5-foot tongue?
It's not fun for me, okay, Mikaela.
And it smelled like... like diesel! Like a diesel-y tinge to it!
Mikaela: You're such a little girl!

Revenge is mine.

I spent my whole adult life combing the planet for aliens,
and you're carrying around one in your purse like a little chihuahua.

Jetfire: I change sides to The Autobots.
Sam: What do you mean 'changed sides'?
Jetfire: It's a choice. It's an intensely personal decision.
So much negativity.
Who wants to live a life filled with hate?

Somewhere buried in this desert, our ancestors built a great machine.
It harvest Energon by destroying suns.
In the beginning, there were 7 Primes, our original leaders.
And they set out into the universe, seeking distant suns to harvest.
The Primes set out with one rule, never destroy a planet with life,
until one of them try to defy this rule.
And his name forevermore was The Fallen.
He despised the human race and he wanted to kill you all by turning on that machine.
The only way to activate it is with a legendary key called The Matrix of Leadership.
A great battle took place over possession of The Matrix.
The Fallen was stronger than his brothers, 
so they had no choice but to steal and hide it from him.
In the ultimate sacrifice, they gave their lives to seal The Matrix away,
in a tomb made of their very own bodies, a tomb we cannot find.
Somewhere, buried in this desert, that deadly machine remains.
The Fallen knows where it is and if he finds the tomb of The Primes,
your world will be no more.

Sam: Then how do you get us to The Matrix before The Decepticons get to me?
Jetstar: Follow your mind, your map, your symbols.
What you carved in the sands, it's your clue.
"When dawn alights The Dagger's Tip, Three Kings will reveal the doorway".
Find the doorway! Go now, go!
That was my mission. It's your mission now!

Do you realize that I just flew 3000 miles to keep you from getting killed?
Who else could be your girlfriend, Sam?
Look at the things I go through with you.
~Mikaela Banes

Mikaela: You can't bring him back, Sam. There's nothing left.
Sam: Look! Look around you!
We didn't just go through everything we went through for no reason at all
to just have it end like this.
There is a reason that we are here.
The voices and the symbols in my head led us here for a purpose.
[Sam collecting The Matrix dust into his sock]
Everyone' s after me because of what I know,
and what I know is that this is going to work.
Mikaela: How do you know it's gonna work?
Sam: Because I believe it.

Remember what I did to my country.
This is my moment.

We have been watching you a long, long time.
You have fought for Optimus, our last descendant, 
with courage and with sacrifice, the virtues of a leader.
A leader worthy of our secret.
The Matrix of Leadership os not found, it is earned.
Return now to Optimus.
Merge The Matrix with his spark.
It is, and always has been, your destiny.
~The Primes

All my decepticon life, I never did a thing worth doing until now.
Optimus, take my parts and you will have a power you've never known.
Fulfill your destiny.

I rise, you fall.
~Optimus Prime, after tore apart Fallen's face

Not to call you a coward, Master.
But sometimes cowards do survive.

Optimus Prime: Thank you, Sam, for saving my life.
Sam: Welcome.
Thank you for believing in me.

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 remembered,
for in those memories, we live on.
~Optimus Prime
