Rattrap: Man, all this for a Golden Disk!
Optimus: It was Cybertron's most carefully guarded relic, Rattrap. It gave the location of a major energon source. That's why Megatron stole it.
Rattrap: Yeah, like I care. Ya know, we was supposed to be doin' deep-space exploration! Playin' "Galactic Patrol" wasn't nowhere in my job description, ya know what I'm sayin'? You sure you're cut out for this commander gig?
Optimus: [sigh] Remember the Great War, Rattrap. If the Predacons get enough energon, they'll start it again! We can't let that happen. Besides, you wanted exploration, and here we are, on an unknown planet. What more do you want?
Rattrap: Well, call me picky, but a working spacecraft might be nice!
Optimus: [sigh] Just no pleasing some people.

[Cheetor has just raced away to show off to a pair of live cheetahs.]
Optimus: [into commlink] Cheetor, return to base immediately! We don't have time for this! Cheetor?! Please respond!
Rhinox: : No good. The energon fields mess up the commlinks. Anything over a hundred meters, they ain't worth scrap.
Optimus: : Well, that's just prime!
Rattrap: : So, uh, this your first day on the job, or what?
Optimus: : Shut up, Rattrap.
Rattrap: : Oh, yes, sir! You know, I just feel heaps better knowing that our lives are in your capable hands... we're all gonna die.

Optimus: We don't have to do this Megatron. There has been peace between the Maximals and Predacons for centuries. Why start this up again?
Megatron: Peace belongs on your side, Maximal scum! Yeesss. But not on ours. Permit me to inform that an enemy which appears to be peaceful may in fact be merely... bidding it's time.
Cheetor: [fixes his gun] Finally!
Megatron: We Predacons have never abandoned our rightful goal of galactic conquest. Nooo! We have merely been waiting... for the right moment, to strike!
Cheetor: You mean like THIS?! [shoots Megatron right in the neck]
Optimus: Cheetor!
Megatron: [in a sadistic tone] Ah, a treacherous under-handed sneak attack. Oh, I like you pussy cat, yeeesssss. But it shall avail you not, no! For now the power gauntlet has been cast. Predacons; Terroize!
Optimus: [to the Maximals] Do it! Maximize![all the Maximals and Predacons transform into robot mode]

TV Show: Beast Wars
[Optimus and Dinobot duel for leadership of the Maximals. They lock swords and push against each other.]
Optimus: [about Dinobot's concept of honour] For a Predacon, Dinobot...[straining with effort] ... you have qualities I could like!
Dinobot: And you... have proven to be a worthy adversary... I will have you recycled... with full honours.
Optimus: Well... that's... just... PRIME!

TV Show: Beast Wars
Megatron: Well, well. This is an interesting sight, yeesss. Optimus Primal and the traitor Dinobot, engaged in battle.
Scorponok: Who do you think's gonna win?
Waspinator: Ooooooh, Waspinator bet on Optimus!
Tarantulas: [snickers] The winner isn't what interests me.
Megatron: Nor me. Nooo. How much more... preferable it would be if they both lost... Yeeesssss...

[Waspinator and Terrorsaur retreat. Dinobot fires after them, and accidentally knocks down a large rock, which almost crushes Rhinox.]

Optimus: Ease off, Rattrap. It was an accident.
Rattrap: Says you!
Optimus: That's right, "Says me!" You wanna question my orders one more time?!

TV Show: Beast Wars
Megatron: Across the galaxy it has come to this, Optimus Primal. Face to face, tooth to claw. Yeeessss... Have you anything to say?
Optimus: I'd say that's prime. Let's do it!

Optimus: Not here! Do you understand?! Take it outside! Rhinox, keep those repairs coming.
Megatron: Ah, I see we have a new "Optimal Optimus" to deal with. And carrying Prime's spark as well.
Optimus: I said outside!
Megatron: You wouldn't dare fire in here! It might upset history.
Optimus: We'd have 4 million years to clean you off the walls Megatron. I might risk it!
Inferno: I will protect you, Royalty!
Megatron: No, Inferno! Not this time. This is not the end of it, Optimal Optimus, no. The Universe cowered once at the name of Megatron, and it shall do so again!
Optimus: Freedom is the right of all sentient beings, Megatron!
Megatron: Then they'd better stay out of my way!

TV Show: Beast Wars
Dinobot: [Arguing with Rattrap] With Optimus gone, I should be... [Rhinox grabs him by the neck and lifts him off the ground]
Rhinox: I'm in a bad mood. Understand?
Dinobot: [weakly] Uh-huh!

[Tarantulas is preparing to feast on Cheetor]
Cheetor: This is a really dumb plan, web brain. I don't have any real blood, just mech fluid.
Taratulas: Oh, my filters will adjust. It is the act I enjoy more than the nourishments.
Rattrap: [from behind] Y'know, you're one sick bug, Eight-Eyes!

TV Show: Beast Wars
[Dinobot is telling the Maximals about how he fought a clone of his]
Rattrap: Besides, if there was a clone, then where is he?
Dinobot: I'm afraid he's gone for good. A shame really. He was such a handsome creature. And…quite tasty.
[Dinobot flicks a piece of flesh from between his teeth at Optimus Primal's face and belches. Cheetor gives him a thumbs-up, Rattrap stares at him, Rhinox frowns and Optimus says...]
Optimus Primal: You're disgusting.
[Dinobot smiles]

TV Show: Beast Wars
Scorponok: There it is, just as Megatron said.
Blackarachnia: "Just as Megatron said, just as Megatron said." Don't you even get tired of groveling to that saurian?
Scorponok: [dangerously] Megatron is our leader. He rewards loyalty and punishes those who oppose his will.
Blackarachnia: Oh, I'm all a-quiver.

TV Show: Beast Wars
Dinobot: Unlike you, I do not spend my time scurrying though sewers!
Rattrap: Yeah?! Well a sewer smells better than your breath, Bronto-brain!

Tarantulas: DIE, MAXIMALS!
Rattrap and Dinobot: SHUT UP![They both punch Tarantulas, knocking him out again]

[Megatron has reformatted Rhinox into a Predacon, who has systematically wrecked the other Predacons and turned on him]
Megatron: Rhinox... Such a pleasure to see you, Rhinox.
Rhinox: Always a treat to see you, too.
Megatron: Traitor!
Rhinox: Yup, you got a point there! In which case; Rhinox, TERRORIZE! [transforms] They're playin our song, Megatron; time to dance!
Megatron: Oh I do so hate to disappoint, but you won't mind if I sit this one out?

TV Show: Beast Wars
[Megatron has reformatted Rhinox into a Predacon, who has systematically wrecked the other Predacons and turned on him]
Rhinox: Well what do you know? I win. Reprograming me was the worst mistake you ever made, 'cause now that I'm a Predacon, I'm just a little too crafty for you.
Megatron: ... Yes, I see this now.
Rhinox: It's called irony, sport. I take over and you head straight for the recycling bin, yesss.
Megatron: So it would seem, and even now, Rhinox, you're teaching me a very valuable lesson.
Rhinox: Yeah, what's that?
Megatron: Sometimes Predacons gloat too much! [Activates a machine, turning Rhinox back into a Maximal]

Megatron: Good work, Inferno. Now go and repair yourself.
Inferno: Yes, my Queen!
Megatron: ...I wish he wouldn't call me that.

[The Predacons have faked their own deaths to trick the Maximals, and are hiding in a crevice. Tarantulas eats a rat, letting the tail drop on Terrorsaur.]
Terrorsaur: Stop slobbering on me, Tarantulas!
Tarantulas: I am feasting!
Waspinator: [pushing against Tarantulas's abdomen] Give Waspinator room! Tarantulas fat enough.
Tarantulas: If Waspinator doesn't stop cuddling me like a stuffed toy when he sleeps, I will eat him as well!
Waspinator: I'd like to see you try!
Tarantulas: Oh, yes I will!
[Waspinator and Tarantulas begin a loud, undecipherable arguement.]
Terrorsaur: YOU ALL MAKE ME SICK! I can't stand this any longer, Megatron! I've gotta get out of here!
[Terrorsaur is so mad that he even starts to hop and laugh maniacally, until Scorponok punches him.]
Scorponok: We wouldn't be here if you hadn't tripped over that spy cable.
Megatron: You are correct, Scorponok. But thanks to Terrorsaur's inadvertant discovery of our enemy's spy camera, we were able to pull off this little... deception. Yesss.
Blackarachnia: But what if they detect us? Do not forget that my signature-damping device is only experimental.
Megatron: We have only to wait until they repair their ship, and then attack while their guard is down. With the Maximal ship in our posession, we will be able to recover the orbiting stasis pods, containing Maximals "eager" [evil chuckle] to become new Predacons. [stomps over to Terrorsaur] SO NO ONE LEAVES!
Terrorsaur: Leaving? [nervous chuckle] Who said anything about leaving?
