Best line in a Transformers episode?

Post by Mirage » Wed May 16, 2007 8:07 pm

i was watchin' a tf dvd last night, and found the best line ever in a transformers episode......childish, but, still the best...........

from Prime Target, G1, Season 2;

Optimus Prime, after witnessing Astrotrain and Blitzwing fall in to a trap, 'Wow! a booby trap that actually traps boobies!'

way to go Prime, keepin' it real, any other suggestions for best line??

From Triple Takeover

“Tell me what’s on your mind or I’ll splatter it against the wall and see for myself!”

Not what you expect from a kids cartoon that went out before 9AM never mind 9PM

"some liquid nitrogen should cool things off"-variants
I do not agree that the original Transformers cartoon is bad, but I do agree that my opinion is probably biased.

I actually don't like signatures.

"A warrior doesn't need a head, just a good strong body" - Megatron sums up, in one line, just why the Decepticons were an utterly pathetic bunch of idiots only four-year olds could take seriously.

Bah! You're forgetting that episode's truly most memorable quote!

Megatron: "Either you're lying, or stupid!"
Starscream: "I'm stupid, I'm stupid!"


Web World had some lovely moments, such as the casual conversion between Cyclonus and some therapist as he's filled out paper work. However, Galvatron's insane ramblings through out his various therapy sessions are just wonderful! For example;

Therapist: "Galvatron, don't fight it. Just say whatever comes to mind."
Galvatron: "Rip... kill... mangle!"
Therapist: "Yes. Go on..."
Galvatron: "Tear... rend... distort!"
Therapist: "Interesting."

From 'The Big Broadcast 2006'

Cyclonus: Mighty Galvatron. Where are you going?

Galvatron: To the signal..To be a winner...Cause I believe in me!

[ Follows up his remark by punching Cyclonus aside the head, then flys off with a group of other Decepticons. ]



The part where Galvatron randomly socks Cyclonus is what make this scene a classic.

From my signature i have a few classic lines:

"Starscream, activate the null ray" is funny cause it's as if the null ray is some random device and not Starscream's arm cannon. It's not a fluke as megs says it in two different episodes.

"Hang onto your Crankshaft" Is funny because it just is....is Wheeljack using a cybertronian euphemism for " Hang on to your Ass"? or is the "crankshaft" even more risque than that?

the line from triple takeover about the brain splattering mentioned earlier is great writing.

During Victor Carolli's Ultimate Doom recap he says ..."threaten to rip the planet apart" all evil like.

there are so many more, but I'll leave some for the rest of you
Come on and wind me up.

Galvatron saying "I belive in me" is one of the funniest things I've heard in a long time. And yes, Cyclonus did suffer a lot of random punchings. Yet he stayed with Galvatron. Hmmm...does that make this the first case of domestic violence in Transformers?
But best line? Megatron's endless variations of "You're an idiot Starscream!". Really, it's no surprise Starscream was always trying to kill him.

In the TFCog fandub episodes of Victory, whenever Leozack says "My liege." to his leader Deszaras/Deathsaurus and what a badass voice by Rob Michel.

I have to give the best line award to Ultra Magnus when he's about to blow Paradron up. He ran down to the crystalline core-like thing and taken in surprise by its aesthetics. Then, he uttered this classic line...

"It's so beautiful! Alright, give me the bomb."

Blecch, do fandubs even count?

EDIT: Because if they do, I might as well include the following from the crackhead StarTV dub of Masterforce:

"I am Optimus Prime. I am Japanese."

At least the TFCog dub makes more sense than the StarTV dud.

And that's their only advantage over the StarTV dubs - and they still went and named 'God Ginrai' 'Apex Prime'. :wall:

Ah well. Since I personally can't stand dubs of any kind (well, except for comedy purposes), my opinion hardly matters, yes?

It's also from Triple Takeover. I can't exactly remember the line from Prime, but it goes something like "Thrones are for Decepticons. As for me, I'd rather... ROLL."

This was from the last scene, when Prowl & the other Autobots threw themselves on each other to form a makeshift throne.

Speaking of lines, I've noticed there have been several G1 episodes where Peter Cullen would slip & Prime would talk like Ironhide, his other character.

Megatron(with his gun to Starscream's head)-"Either your lying, or your stupid."
Starscream-"I'm stupid, I'm stupid!"

Funny. To me, at least.:)
