Tom Banachek Quotes in Transformers (2007)
Tom Banachek Quotes:
Captain Lennox: [points a gun at Simmons] Take him to his car!
[a standoff ensues between the Special Forces and Sector 7]
Tom Banachek: Whoa whoa whoa...
Agent Simmons: Drop your weapon, solider. There's an alien war going on and you're gonna shot me?
Captain Lennox: You know, we didn't ask to be here.
Agent Simmons: I'm ordering you under S-Seven executive jurisdiction...
USAF Tech Sergeant Epps: S-7 don't exist!
Captain Lennox: Right, and we don't take orders from people that don't exist.
Agent Simmons: I'm gonna count to five, okay...
Captain Lennox: Well, I'm gonna count to three.
[cocks his gun]
Agent Simmons: What you're about to see is totally classified...
[Project Iceman is reveled: a towering mechanical clossus, imprisoned in a cryogenic chamber]
Keller: Dear God... what is this?
Tom Banachek: We think that when he made his approach over the North Pole our gravitation field screwed up his telemetry and crashed into the ice, probably a few thousand years ago. We shipped him here to this facility in 1934.
Agent Simmons: We call him NBE-1.
Sam Witwicky: I don't mean to correct you on all that you think you know, but that's Megatron. He's the leader of the Decepticons.
Tom Banachek: He's been in cryo-stasis since 1935. Your great-great-grandfather made one of the greatest discoveries in the history of mankind.
Agent Simmons: Fact is, you're looking at the source of the modern age. The microchip, lasers, cars, space flight: all reverse-engineered by studying him. NBE-1...
[glares at Sam]
Agent Simmons: That's what we call IT!
Keller: And you didn't think that the United States Military might need to know that you're keeping a hostile alien robot frozen in the basement?
Tom Banachek: Until these events we had no credible threats to national security.
Keller: Well, you got one now!
Sam Witwicky: Where's my car?
Tom Banachek: Son, listen to me very carefully. People could die here. We need to know everything you know, and we need to know it right now.
Sam Witwicky: Okay... But first I'll take my car, my parents - maybe you should write that down. Oh, and her juvie record. That's gotta be gone. Like, forever.
Tom Banachek: [exhales] Come with me. We'll talk about your car.
Mikaela: [to Sam] Thank you.
Sam Witwicky: Sure.
Agent Simmons: [deep sigh] The man's an extortionist.
Tom Banachek: You have to accept that there are certain things you won't understand right away. Sector Seven is a special access division of the Government, convened in secret under President Hoover eighty years ago. You might remember NASA JPL lost the Beagle 2 Mars Rover? We told them to report the mission a complete failure. It wasn't. Beagle 2 transmitted for thirteen seconds. This was classified ABOVE top secret...
[Banachek plays a video of a giant lifeform crushing the Beagle]
Tom Banachek: More than just a pile of Martian rocks.
[Banachek shows the Secretary two photographs]
Tom Banachek: This is the image from Mars. This is the image your Special Ops team managed to retrieve from the base attack. We believe that they are of the same exoskeletal type, and obviously not Russian or North Korean.
Keller: Are we talking about... an invasion?
Tom Banachek: We intercepted the message from your Special Ops team. These things can be hurt by our weapons, and now they know it. That's why the virus shut us down, so we can't coordinate against their next attack... which I would bet my ridiculous government salary is coming soon.
Tom Banachek: Follow me. You're about to see our crown jewel...
[Everyone enters the All Spark Chamber]
Tom Banachek: The First Seven came upon the Cube. We knew it was extraterrestrial because the symbols on its surface matched those on NBE-1. The Dam was built around it in 1935 to mask its signal. Four walls of concrete, as thick as four football fields, enable the Cube to avoid being detected by any humans, or any aliens from outside...
[Frenzy comes across the Cube, whose energy boosts and repairs him]
Frenzy: All Spark located!
