KNOCK OUT
No worries, herr commandant.
STARSCREAM
It is "Lord" to you!
KNOCK OUT
Only if Megatron takes a nosedive.
STARSCREAM
[snarls] The day our master emerges from stasis, I will graciously relinquish the title. But I believe that outcome is unlikely - something to do with the quality of medical care around here! So continue buffing. We do want Megatron looking his best for the memorial.
KNOCK OUT
[flips Starscream off] Buff THIS.

STARSCREAM
[Closing lines] I have been a fool. Made mistakes. Monumental ones. But I have gained a clear understanding of my place in the universe. Of who I am. Starscream: aligned with no side; servant, to no one.

STARSCREAM
My "greatest mistake"? I've made a few. But there is one I do not intend to make again!
MEGATRON
My greatest mistake? I've made a few. But there is one I do not intend to make again!

STARSCREAM
Lord... Megatron. [stammers] You... are - you're healed! Praise the Allspark! It is a miracle!
MEGATRON
Oh, it will be a miracle all right, Starscream... if you survive what I have planned for you!

STARSCREAM
You cannot harm me while Dark Energon flows through my veins!

STARSCREAM
[Captured by the Autobots] No need to use force. I'll tell you anything you want to know.
BULKHEAD
Is that right? And what do you want in return?
STARSCREAM
I want to be... on your side.
BULKHEAD
On our side? Haha, yeah right! And I've been lobbying with the Fallen!
ARCEE
You wouldn't betray the Decepticons.
STARSCREAM
Wouldn't I? What have they done for me lately, besides humiliate me, spy on me, demote me? Megatron tried to extinguish my spark in cold blood, then all but replaced me with that traitorous wretch Airachnid! She abandoned me! Left me for scrap! So why not rat them out?
ARCEE
He's telling the truth about Megatron trying to scrap him. I saw it with my own eyes.
BULKHEAD
You're not saying you actually trust Starscream?
ARCEE
Trust him? Never. But this may be the one time our objectives align.
OPTIMUS PRIME
You're right to be weary, Bulkhead. But I agree with Arcee.

STARSCREAM
[Opening lines] I have been a fool. Made mistakes. Monumental ones. I now realize I was never destined to be leader, or even an equal partner. And, I am at peace with that. I have gained a clear understanding of my place in the universe. Of who I am. Of who I was always meant to be. Starscream: second in command, humble servant to Lord Megatron. Thank you for listening, Soundwave.

STARSCREAM
Yes! I love when a plan comes together!

STARSCREAM
Megatron's greatest mistake was ever allowing you to live, Prime!

STARSCREAM
Knock Out, was I not clear? You have defied my orders yet again!
KNOCK OUT
My mistake, Commander Starscream. But I've learned my lesson, and paid the price!
STARSCREAM
It is LORD! And you have paid when I SAY you have paid! [extends a claw]
STARSCREAM
Do not worry, your punishment shall be merely... cosmetic.
KNOCK OUT
No, not the finish! Anything but the finish! NOOOO!
