Optimus Prime: Do not grieve. Soon I shall be one with the Matrix.
Hot Rod: Prime.
Optimus Prime: Ultra Magnus, it is to you, old friend, I shall pass the Matrix of Leadership as it was passed to me.
Ultra Magnus: But Prime, I'm... I'm just a soldier. I... I'm not worthy.
Optimus Prime: Nor was I. But one day, an Autobot shall rise from our ranks, and use the power of the Matrix to light our darkest hour.
[opens his chest to reveal the Matrix. Removes it and begins to hand it over to Ultra Magnus]
Optimus Prime: Until that day, till all are one.

Ultra Magnus: Blurr, get the Dinobots in the shuttle!
Blurr: [speaking quickly] I'm trying to get them in the shuttle, Ultra Magnus. 'Cause I know we can't launch the shuttle until I get them into the shuttle. But I can't seem to get them into the shuttle 'cause they're impossible, impossible, impossible!
Ultra Magnus: Okay, forget it! Kup, Hot Rod, you guys get the Dinobots aboard and get out of here.
Hot Rod: [lassoing Grimlock's neck] Come on, you big bozo, get in the shuttle!

Hot Rod: Yeah, but what about our problems? We need a ship.
Springer: [sees Unicron attacking Cybertron] I don't believe it.
Hot Rod: Doesn't this remind you of anything, Kup?
Kup: Nope, I've never seen anything like this before.
Hot Rod: We've got to get a new travel agent. What is this place?
Kranix: The world of the savage Sharkticons and their cruel masters the Quintessons. I am Kranix. My planet was destroyed by Unicron.
Hot Rod: Unicron? Who's Unicron?
Kranix: A planet that devours everything in its path.
Kup: So that's the monster's name.
Kup: Reminds me of the Nitith slave mines on Galganas 7.
Hot Rod: Every place reminds you of some place else.
Kup: Experience, lad. You should learn to appreciate it.
Hot Rod: A lot of good it's done us so far.
Arcee: I was afraid you'd be trapped outside the city.
Hot Rod: Hey, I wasn't worried for a microsecond.
Arcee: Then you probably didn't understand the situation.
Kup: Of all the circuit glitched, diode blown dimwittery. You left a piece out.
Hot Rod: No way. You're just a little stiff.
Kup: Anyway all things considered you did an amazing job lad. Amazing.
Hot Rod: Really?
Kup: Yeah. You even got rid of a nasty burr in my rotator. Now let's find the Dinobots and get off of this twisted planet.
Hot Rod: Why settle for a peek, Daniel, when you can see everything from Lookout Mountain?
Daniel: [views the shuttle from a viewscope] Hot Rod, look, there's a hole in the shuttle!
Hot Rod: [shocked] What?
Hot Rod: [zooms his eyes in on the damaged shuttle] Decepticons!
Kup: [sees Hot Rod shooting at the incoming shuttle] What's that darn fool doing?
Hot Rod: Heh, not bad for an old timer.
Kup: Old Timer? That's something you'll never be, if you don't get back to the city.
Hot Rod: [shouts] Save it, Kup!
[Blitzwing comes screaming over head very closely while shooting at the two]
Hot Rod: Let's *burn rubber*!
[Both Hot Rod and Kup transform]
Wreck-Gar: Have a nice day and please, close cover before striking, friends! Breep drit, aw rootie! So say the Junkions!
Hot Rod: Where did you learn to talk like that?
Wreck-Gar: T.V. We talk T.V. You talk some T.V.?
Kup: I talk some T.V. And now the news, don't touch that dial.
Quintesson: Would you like to beg for your lives? It sometimes helps... but not often.
Kup: I can't transform.
Hot Rod: Keep trying.
Quintesson: Silence or you'll be held in contempt of this court.
Hot Rod: I have nothing but contempt for this court.
Hot Rod: They're closing on us.
Kup: Yep, like the Shrikebats of Dromedon.
Hot Rod: How'd you beat them?
Kup: I'm trying to remember. There were an awful lot of casualties that day. Oh, yeah. We invented polarities!
Kup: The Insecticons are in our way.
Hot Rod: Wrong. They're our way in! Hyah!
Arcee: Stay close to me, Daniel.
Hot Rod: And you'd better stay close to me.
Arcee: No you'd better stay close to me.
Ultra Magnus: You're all alive!
Hot Rod: The Matrix?
Ultra Magnus: It's gone...
Kup: And with it all hope.
Hot Rod: No!
Arcee: Galvatron has it.
Hot Rod: Where's Galvatron? Where is he?
Wreck-Gar: And the answer is... Unicron!
Hot Rod: The Matrix.
Galvatron: It will do you no good Autobot. It cannot be opened.
Hot Rod: Not by a Decepticon.
Galvatron: Like it or not, we are allies now against a common foe.
[shrill noises and bright lights surround Galvatron]
Unicron: Destroy him, Galvatron *now* or you, yourself shall be obliterated.
Galvatron: Of course, my master.
Galvatron: Puny Autobot. You lack even Prime's courage. Come out Autobot. We all must die sometime.
Hot Rod: Not today, Galvatron!
[Hot Rod tackles Galvatron. Galvatron then puts his hands around Hot Rod's throat and begins choking him]
Galvatron: Die, Autobot. First Prime, then Ultra Magnus, and now you. It's a pity you Autobots die so easily, or I might have a sense of satisfaction now.
Hot Rod: [after landing on the planet of Junk and encountering the Junkions] Guns aren't exactly friendly.
Kup: Neither are they in case you haven't noticed!
[as Optimus Prime battles Megatron]
Hot Rod: I've got to help Prime!
Kup: Stay away, lad! That's Prime's fight.
Kup: Yep, I remember the dust was so thick on Beta 4, you had to use windshield wipers on your optic sensors.
Grimlock: Me Grimlock know all about wipers! Want to hear good part of story!
Swoop: Good part, Kup! Tell Swoop good part!
Kup: Okay, okay. Well, the dust was really thick, and this gigantic icthyac came tromping down the mountain, flames spewing out of its nostrils, and I thought for sure...
Hot Rod: Hey, Kup, don't you think we have better things to do now than tell old stories?
Kup: Like what?
Hot Rod: Like maybe figure out how we're gonna rescue our friends and then save Cybertron.
Grimlock: No! Tell story!
