Male 1: That got their attention!
Male 2: We can't let Starscream get away!
Male 1: This should do the trick. Excellent. The power surge [inaudible 00:00:22] all shielding of the Tower's matrix shots! Eh...the network is coming back online faster than I thought. I must reach Shockwave's lab quickly! Must come quickly! [inaudible 00:00:56] won't be down for long. Meh. Not that way!
Shockwave: The subject continues to resist every test. I suspect they were administered incorrectly.
Sharpshot: I assure you, the tests were done as you instructed.
Shockwave: We shall see, Sharpshot.
Sharpshot: Stars on line! Let us do this face to face! Always tinkering, aren't you, Shockwave? Must be quite the test.
Shockwave: Shockwave's log, 77839. The subject's core functions are operating within tolerable levels, despite complications encountered during microsurgery. Subject's power readings have increased tenfold, thanks to my rerouting energon feeds from all but the most basic cerebral circuitry. Hardshell, administer stress test 87B.
Sharpshot: [inaudible 00:02:22] Let me play with it.
Shockwave: In due time, Sharpshot. Insecticons, follow me.
Male 3: Nice try, Starscream! You picked on the wrong...ahhhh!!
Starscream: So...you are the one called Grimlock. I am Starscream. I know what Shockwave has done to you and your team. I've scanned his logs, looked excruciated...I bet you're just chomping at the bit to pay him back. What is a Grimlock to do? Surely, Optimus has written you off. And you're entirely too stupid to think for yourself. Pathetic! You will swear your allegiance to me. You will do my bidding. And in turn, I will set you free.
Grimlock: No thanks. I'll free myself!
Scarscream: Wait! I can help you!
Grimlock: Nothing feels right. Hard to think!
Robot voice: Alert! Alert! Test subject is mobile.
Male 4: It's escaped!
Grimlock: Must find my team.
Male 5: Call for reinforcements!
Grimlock: Where are my teammates?
Male 6: I don't wanna get deactivated!
Male 7: Alert Shockwave!
Robot voice: Warning. Reaching detainment cell 1G. Subject prone to violent outbursts. Please escort subject back to detainment area.
Grimlock: What has Shockwave done to me?
Robot voice: Initiated lock down.
Male 8: We need reinforcements!
Grimlock: Take me to my team!
Male: There he is! Open fire! You're not the sharpest tool in the [inaudible 00:05:59]
Male 8: There it is! Don't let it reach the others!
Grimlock: Others? Yes! My team!
Male 9: [inaudible 00:06:15]
Males: [inaudible 00:06:28]
Male 10: [inaudible 00:06:34]
Grimlock: [inaudible 00:06:52]
Male 11: [inaudible 00:07:02]
Grimlock: Must find the others.
Robotic Voice: Caution. Approaching detainment cell 1S.
Grimlock: Security. Must be getting close. Swoop. What have they done?
Shockwave: Welcome, Grimlock! Your attempt to rescue your friend was easily predicted.
Shockwave: I've siphoned your cerebral circuitry to push additional power to combat for needed functions. Frankly, I'm amazed you can even talk. 98.7 percent of your redesign is dedicated to the total destruction of your enemy.
Grimlock: Lucky you.
Robotic voice: [inaudible 00:08:57] Deactivated.
Swoop: That's more like it.
Grimlock: How'd you do that?
Swoop: I don't know. But I like it! Can you change form?
Grimlock: No! Everything's different.
Swoop: You mean...better!
Grimlock: Just different! Need to find the others.
Swoop: So? Where do we start?
Grimlock: Don't know. Start looking.
Male: There they are!
Grimlock: Swoop! Take 'em out!
Swoop: Ha! Watch this! I like flying!
