*Megatron sues for peace after beating up Sentinel. You may think Optimus will accept. Instead, he turns it down with a BadassBoast, then kills Megatron in about 10 seconds. A rematch 3 years and 2.3 hours in the making... and it ends before you realize it's begun.



*

to:

* Laserbeak provides a lot...
--> Pleasure working with you.
** He kills a pair of birds. For no reason other than he wanted to.
** Jerry Wang's obnoxious co-worker ('''[- I'm still stewing about that binder incident, Jerry. -]''') tries using Laserbeak's copier disguise. He even comments that it's complicated because it's Japanese. You may cheer when his racist ass gets shot by Laserbeak.

* Megatron has finally had enough of Starscream:
--> ''Spare me, you gaseous sycophant!''

* Dylan Gould (here due to his HeelFaceTurn)
** His introduction comes right after Carly has been talking him up. It's obvious he's a RichIdiotWithNoDayJob. Except he isn't, he's actually just as smart and charming as he is handsome, working as the head of his company. You can't hate him, even though he's perfect!
*** Except he's totally an evil selfish jerk.
** Sam only got his job because Dylan is on the Board. Good luck enjoying that [[BrickJoke bonus tonight, Sam.]]
** In spite of its seriousness, TheReveal that Dylan is evil may cause a chuckle at its abruptness. Especially when Sam starts to run, and Dylan asks a party guest if it was something he said. She said no.
** In Chicago, Dylan must pay his respects to Megatron.
---> (bows) '''Your excellency.''' (turns away) '''He is ''such'' a dick.'''
** Dylan's OhCrap face when Bumblebee is about to shoot up his apartment...
** His LargeHam taunting of Sam at the Control Pillar is pure {{Narm}}.

* Sentinel's first act upon waking up is to tackle Optimus. It comes out of nowhere (only later do we recognize the foreshadowing), providing excellent MoodWhiplash.

* One of Epp's mercenaries falls out of the tilting building. He screams all the way... even as he passes Shockwave on the way down, who looks up following the human splattering next to him. Even better, the animators made sure one of the coffee mugs that fell shatters against Shockwave in slow motion.

* Carly goes to convince Megatron to fight Sentinel. She does so by taunting him.
--> Any minute now, you'll be nothing but Sentinel's ''bitch''.
** Megatron rightly goes to smash her- and then he backs off, realizing, "Oh shit, she's right."

** He has a medal from the president. No one cares.
*** Speaking of the medal, that's when he meets Carly. By breaking an expensive decorative vase in the White House.
*** The novelization makes it better: the vase was a gift from Winston Churchill! [[DontExplainTheJoke Carly is British.]]


Added DiffLines:

** After running from the Driller, Epps and the Mercenaries are separated from Sam and Carly. Epps and Hardcore Eddie have a great discussion.
---> '''Epps:''' Where are Sam and Carly?\\
'''Eddie:''' da um...\\
(cut to them running from Starscream, then cut back)\\
'''Epps:''' I give you one thing to do! One thing to do, and you drop the ball on that?\\
'''Eddie:''' I didn't sign up for all this! I got aliens blastin' at me, runnin' around, chasin' me! I'm duckin' through churches and buildin's nd all that kinda crap, man, this is bullshit! I didn't sign up for this Epps. ({{Beat}}) I'm tryin' to keep it down.
*** WebVideo/CinemaSins points out the BFG strapped across his chest. What did he think he was signing up for?
*** Eddie had another great moment earlier, when he was trying to shoot the Pillar with their rocket launcher. He was stressing out, and Sam comes over to motivate him. He takes aim again and this time mutters that it doesn't matter if the aliens kill him or the building falls over, because he's about to have a heart attack anyway.


Added DiffLines:


* After Dylan reveals his true nature, he fits Sam with a Decepticon torturer disguised as a wristwatch. Every time Sam tries something the watch doesn't like, it electrocutes him. Whenever it wants him to do something different, it zaps him with less electricity, causing his body to jerk around randomly. At one point, the spasms cause him to roll across a table in an impressive display of agility. He pops right up next to Charlotte Mearing and brushes himself off like, "yeah, I meant to do that." Another time, his hand basically ''caresses'' one of the NASA technicians. Sam denies he did anything, and the techie orders Sam to get away from him.

* The Wreckers
** Mearing sums it up well:
---> '''We don't let 'em off the base much, 'cause they're assholes.'''
** They threaten to kill a NASA tech because he gave a bolt the wrong number of turns. In all fairness, they were working on an alien spaceship and the slightest miscalculation could mean death, so...
** When Epps is saying he runs interference for them, Roadbuster can be heard in the background:
---> '''Well you're not helping!'''
** Upon arrival in Chicago they tear a Decepticon pilot limb from limb. It would be serious... if not for Leadfoot.
---> '''This is going to hurt. A lot!'''

* Optimus' trailer is knocked away by the Driller, much to his consternation. The funny part is that his complaining is seriously out of character (thought not an example of OOCIsSeriousBusiness), and comes across as Hasbro wanting the movie to promote the toyline.

* When Optimus is shot down by Shockwave, the look on his face reads, "Well this sucks" crossed with, "I am such a freaking dumbass, I should've seen that coming."

* Brains and Wheelie hijacked a Decepticon fighter, hoping to do some damage... they fly it strait into the hold of an AirborneAircraftCarrier and crash.
** Brains: '''[- "This is a total [[CurseCutShort clusterf-"]] -]'''
** Then they decide to trash the larger ship. ('''[- Oh, We gonna screw dis ship up. -]''') They cause it to drop all of its stored fighters just as [[MoodWhiplash Soundwave is about to execute Bumblebee.]]
** Then as the ship is about to crash, they exchange last words:
---> '''Wheelie:''' We had a nice run Brains, you and me!\\
'''Brains:''' Yeah, we gonna die.
*** HarsherInHindsight, the sequel reveals that Brains survived... Wheelie (presumably) did not.

* After the battle is over, Sam and Carly reunite. He promises to make things up to her... and Bumblebee pulls out a bunch of gears and washers, playing the traditional wedding march. Sam is very put off.

"He's pissed."
* During the highway chase, Bee has to avoid a crashing truck. He does so by transforming and flipping over the wreck, tossing Sam into the air. Sam is screaming like a little girl. Bee meanwhile is quite calm, batting aside bits of truck, before grabbing Sam and turning back, putting Sam into the front seat before Sam has stopped screaming. Sam's deadpan afterthought sells it:
--> Right, back to NEST.

* Just about everything Brains and Wheelie do in the beginning, including:
** Brazenly admitting to rifling through Carly's underwear
** Providing some excellent foreshadowing by watching Star Trek
** Trying to say Sam is family (he's not having any of it)
* Mirage intimidates some Iranian guards... politely.
--> On the ground, per favore. And stay there!

** He's in charge of the Wreckers. That as a concept is pretty funny.
*** In the novelization, he keeps them under control by playing a 24-hour loop of a NASCAR race.

Added DiffLines:


* Charlotte Mearing replaces Theodore Galloway as National Security Director and Autobot Liaison. As such, she gets several moments to be humorous.
** Her first appearance has her berating a Senator over the phone. Doubles as a CrowningMomentOfAwesome, maybe even an AwesomeMomentOfCrowning.
** Her interactions with Lennox and Optimus are just brimming with comedic awkwardness.
** Once Sam arrives at NEST, the SnarkToSnarkCombat is real.
** Then she talks to him, Carly, and the two mini-bots in her office. Brains jumps on her desk, and she immediately pulls out a gun. He gets down.
** Her OhCrap face once she recognizes Sam is telling her the truth about the Decepticons' plans is full of {{Narm}}.
** Ditto for the way she blames Optimus for the base's destruction.
