Funny / Transformers Rescue Bots

  • The end of "Family of Heroes" shows the Burns family's reaction to learning the truth about their Rescue Bot partners.
    Chief Burns: .... They're aliens.
    Kade, Graham, Dani: "WHAT!?"
    • Then we see the family photo, with everyone freaking out except Cody and his dad.
    • Right after the scanning scene, Chief Burns is introduced to the Rescue Bots.
      Chief Burns: (Looking at the regular vehicles) It's an honor and a privilege.
      Heatwave: Over here.
  • In "Flobsters on Parade", poor Blades has to stand perfectly still as the lobsters keep pummeling him in the face.
    • When Blades finally gets Cody's "Flobster" joke, he laughs, and everyone looks at him like he's an idiot.
    • Frankie bats a few of the flobsters away with a spatula. Cue a horde of flobsters surrounding her, with one taking the spatula right out of her hand.
  • From "Four Bots and a Baby" we get this gem:
    • Loved it when Heatwave stops him the first time by covering his mouth mid-song:
      Heatwave: Not helping!
  • "Return of the Dinobot". I ask you, is there anything more ridiculous than watching a rampaging robotic T-Rex getting a cup of coffee?
    "Trex is good boy!"
    • Though Cody and Graham seemed to like him.
      Cody: Noble! Dad?
      Charlie Burns: You're not getting one.
      Graham: What about—
      Charlie Burns: You either.
    • While Doctor Greene is getting a ride from Dani and Blades:
    Doctor Greene: I've never been in your copter before, Dani. It's quite...stylish.
    Blades: *smug look on monitor*
    Dani: *quickly turns off the monitor* And it's really fast. Especially when there's an emergency, like now.
    Blades: *whimpers*
    Dani: (to Doctor Greene) Uh, rotors need oil.
  • Blades and Heatwave, trying to find food for Cody in "The Lost Bell".
    • Also, Blades and Chase have an "encounter" while looking for camping materials.
      Blades: It's coming for us! (jumps into Chase's arms, then... a puffin appears)
      Chase: We tell no one of this.
      Blades: Agreed.
  • Chase's attempts at humor in "Shake Up".
    Two peanuts walked down the street. One had high sodium content. Ha ha ha. (hits Boulder on the back in a manner similar to beating a drum. The other Bots give Chase a confused stare.)
    • Chase's knock-knock joke.
    Chase: I would like to attempt some Earth humor, sir. Ding-dong.
    Chief Burns: Uh, Chase, you don't use the doorbell. It's a knock-knock joke.
    Chase: Ah, yes, then I am knocking.
    Chief Burns: Who's there?
    Chase: A concerned citizen.
    Chief Burns: A concerned citizen who?
    Chase: A concerned citizen who wishes to inform you that your car is in a "No Parking" zone! Ha ha ha!
    Chief Burns: (wincing) Uh, okay, we're gonna work on those punch lines, Chase.
  • In "Walk on the Wild Side", Blades gets startled by a giraffe.
  • When Cody announces they're going to watch a history movie instead of the war movie Heatwave wants to see: ".... War's a part of history..." and "Cody, you're hurting me on the inside".
    Cody: The natives have spears and blowguns!
    Heatwave: Now you're talking!
  • Near the end of "The Reign of Morocco", Morocco's deadpan reaction as one of his own grenades is about to blow up in his face.
    Dr. Morocco: Well, that's unfortunate. (Runs away as fast as he can.)
  • Bumblebee's awkward smile at the end of "Bumblebee to the Rescue".
  • While Chase is trapped inside the alien slime monster in "You've Been Squilshed", he has this to say:
    "It is growing rather crowded. The squirrels are becoming restless..."
  • At one point during "The Haunting of Griffin Rock", Cody brings his dad evidence that the Lady of Griffin Rock was a real person. Chief Burns is still more than skeptical.
    Cody: Dad! The Lady of Griffin Rock was a real person!
    • Later, when the team is investigating a ghost sitting at the bank, the ghost appears and says, "Follow me, men!" While everyone else is shocked, Dani seems more concerned about the possibility of being offended.
  • During a crisis in "Countdown", Blades once again whimpers at the prospect of having to perform difficult flying maneuvers while he, Dani and Cody are giving Frankie a lift.
    Frankie: What was that?
    Cody: Engine noise.
    Dani: Funky rotor.
    • The best part is how they both say it at the same time!
  • When Frankie learns that the Rescue Bots are sentient in "It's a Bot Time":
    Frankie: You can talk!
    • Later....
    Frankie: Do you Bots have to do everything Cody tells you to?<br />
    Heatwave: Absolutely not!<br />
    Boulder: Once in a while.<br />
    Chase: I take orders only from Chief Burns.<br />
    Blades: We have a choice?!
  • In "Road Trip", after the transporter takes Cody and the bots (minus Blades) atop Mount Griffin, Chase, of all people, goes into a panic.
    Chase: Mayday! S.O.S.! This is not a test! Mommy! (Heatwave looks at him confused) Those are all the human distress signals I know.
    • Kade during Heatwave's "drivers test".
    • This exchange when Heatwave recognizes the locations to which the teleporter has been sending them.
    Blades: That's amazing! You actually pay attention to Kade.
    Heatwave: Don't you dare tell him.
  • In "Tip of the Iceberg", Cody spots a control panel covered in ice. Blades tries to warn Cody not to touch it, but he presses a button on it anyway, and a hatch opens under Blades' feet. Then Blades turns downright strict and serious for a moment.
  • "A Virtual Disaster" ......... Where do we begin? It's basically one meme after another.
    CAT: I'm afraid I can't do that, Cody.
    Blades: I used to like video games, then I took an arrow to the knee.
    CAT: (glitches out) All your base are belong to us.
    CAT: A winner is you!
  • Chase going through narration like a Film Noir detective in "Bots and Robbers".
    • Highlights include:
      Chase: The air was heavy. Heavy with the fog of lawlessness. That's when she walked in...and asked me the one question I wasn't prepared to answer.
      Dani: Why is it so dark in here? Chase, is there a reason you're in here with the lights off?

      Chase: And like a swimming pool in winter, the case was closed.
      Boulder: Who are you talking to?
    • The Rescue Bots are forced to cross the town, huddled together, walking in sync and going "left, right, left, right" ad infinitum.
      Heatwave: UGH. Well...that was humiliating.
      • And shortly after, when trying to figure out how to disable a device and save the day:
        Chase: Evan and Myles put that device in the sky. Perhaps if we imagined we were villains like them, we could think of a solution!
        Heatwave: That's the dumbest thing I've—
        Boulder: Hello, I'm Myles! I love to steal!
  • Blades and Dani switch bodies in Switcheroo. Blades has entirely too much fun with being Dani.
    Dani (in Blades' body): Blades! Get out of my room!
    Blades (in Dani's body, eating frozen yogurt): This is amazing! It's cold, but it's smooth on my tongue. Ooh! Can I try potato chips? I'll mix them in with the yogurt.
    Dani: You're gonna make me sick.
    Blades (twirling around her room): I've always wanted to see where you live.
    Dani: There are a lot of chores you're gonna have to do for me.
    Blades: Grocery shopping! I've always wanted to push the cart.
    Dani: Get out of my room and get out of my dress!
    • Also funny is what Dani says when they've all switched back and a picnic is suggested.
      Dani: No thanks. For some reason, (Death Glare to Blades) I'm not hungry.
    • Actually there's a lot of funny in this episode given that all the characters switch mannerisms instead of voices so we see things like Chase acting like Frankie, Heatwave biting the dentist off-screen for putting his hand in his mouth, much to Kade's mortification, and Cody completely mangling driving as Boulder. Graham's reaction to discovering the switch is funny too.
      Graham: (watching the others freak out) Glad I stayed here.
  • Blades after being convinced by Optimus Prime to try acquiring a Dinobot form...
    Blades: But this time, I don't want to be....
    Blades (seeing the Pterodactyl): A flying thing!? Come on! Again?!
  • Blades telling Optimus he's "bigger than Elvis!"
    Optimus: (confused) I have not met this Elvis and am unaware of his size.
  • When the Rescue Bots expose themselves as aliens, while all the other humans are shocked, Mrs. Neederlander looks unsurprised. Apparently, she made a bet with Huxley Prescott and he lost, holding out her hand as he gets his wallet out.
