Synopsis: A long time ago, far away on the planet of Cybertron, a war is being waged between the noble Autobots (led by the wise Optimus Prime) and the devious Decepticons (commanded by the dreaded Megatron) for control over the Allspark, a mystical talisman that would grant unlimited power to whoever possesses it. The Autobots managed to smuggle the Allspark off the planet, but Megatron blasts off in search of it. He eventually tracks it to the planet of Earth (circa 1850), but his reckless desire for power sends him right into the Arctic Ocean, and the sheer cold forces him into a paralyzed state. His body is later found by Captain Archibald Witwicky, but before going into a comatose state Megatron uses the last of his energy to engrave into the Captain's glasses a map showing the location of the Allspark, and to send a transmission to Cybertron. Megatron is then carried away aboard the Captain's ship. A century later, Captain Witwicky's grandson Sam Witwicky (nicknamed Spike by his friends) b

Before time began, there was the Cube.

We know not where it comes from,

only that it holds the power

to create worlds and fill them with life.

That is how our race was born.

For a time, we lived in harmony,

but like all great power,

some wanted it for good, others for evil.

And so began the war,

a war that ravaged our planet

until it was consumed by death,

and the Cube was lost

to the far reaches of space.

We scattered across the galaxy,

hoping to find it and rebuild our home,

searching every star, every world.

And just when all hope seemed lost,

message of a new discovery drew us

to an unknown planet called Earth.

But we were already too late.

Oh, God, five months of this.

I can't wait to get a little taste of home.

A plate of mama's alligators touffe.

You've been talking

about barbecued 'gators and crickets

for the last two weeks. I'm never going

to your mama's house, Fig. I promise.

But Bobby, Bobby, 'gators are known

to have the most succulent meat.

I understand.

English, please. English.

I mean, how many times have we...

We don't speak Spanish. I told you that.

Why you got to ruin it for me, man?

That's my heritage.

Go with the Spanish. Whatever.

Hey, you guys remember weekends?

Huh? The Sox at Fenway.

- Cold hotdog and a flat beer.

- Perfect day.

What about you, Captain?

You got a perfect day?

I just can't wait to hold my baby girl

for the first time.

- He's adorable.

- That's too...

Shut up!

Hey, I'm ready to do this.

Hey, any of y'all grow some balls,

come see me on the court, man.

Hey, hey!

Watch this crossover, baby.

Like Jordan in his prime,

pushing through the front line.

- Step aside, ladies.

- Oh, man. What?

- Lennox!

- Hey, what are you doing?

- Water?

- Thank you.

Are you gonna help me with the gear?

Colonel Sharp, we have an inbound

unidentified infiltrator, 10 miles out.

Unidentified aircraft, you are

in restricted US military airspace.

Squawk ident and proceed east

out of the area.

Raptors one and two, snap to heading

two-five-zero to intercept.

Bogie is in the weeds ten miles out,

not squawking.

Unidentified aircraft, we will escort you

to US SOCCENT airbase.

If you do not comply,

we will use deadly force.

Copy the bogie.

Tail 4500 X-ray.

Sir, says here 4500 X

was shot down three months ago.

- Afghanistan.

- That's got to be a mistake.

- Check again, then recheck.

- I did, sir.

A friend of mine was on that chopper.

Unidentified aircraft, we will escort you

to US SOCCENT airbase.

- Radar, where's the inbound?

- Bogie's five miles out, sir.

- My wife on?

- Yes, Captain.

- My ladies!

- Look.

Oh, my goodness. Look at her.

She's getting so big.

Look at those cheeks.

I just wanna chew on them.

Baby, we made a good-looking kid.

I know that people say that all the time,

but, wow, we made

one good-looking kid. Nice work.

She has your laugh.

- She laughed?

- Her first one, yeah.

You sure she didn't just fart?

No, she's a lady.

She doesn't know you yet, but she will.

Bogie's on the deck.

Whoa, whoa, whoa. Radar's jammed.

It's coming from the chopper.

- Will?

- Sarah?

Hey, Sarah, if you can hear me,

I love you and I'll be home soon.

- To the right. Go to the right.

- Check fire.

MH-53 pilot, power down now.

Have your crew step out

or we will kill you.

Hold your fire! Stand by to engage!

My God.

They bombed the antenna farm!

We're under attack!

Go! Move! Move!

It's going after the files!

Cut the hard lines!

I need a key! It's locked!

Move! Move!

Here, come here! Come here!

Here, hide in here!

Oh, my God. Okay.
