** The awkward moment of the ''huge'' Optimus sitting cramped inside Wheeljack's (comparatively) tiny ship.
*** It's the look on his face, coupled with the impatient (for Optimus) way he drums his fingers on his knees, that really does it.
** The 'Bots' threat to Dreadwing at the end basically boils down to, "If we all die, we're going to haunt you."

** Earlier, Fowler turns on his radio to reveal that he's a fan of [[WesternAnimation/TransformersTheMovie The Touch]] and hums along in an off key manner.
* From "Grill", the whole episode is basically a recap episode and Fowler's superior is doubting a lot of what Fowler is saying, including that Optimus is still alive. Eventually, Fowler just ''calls'' Prime to let him know that the General is concerned about his health and well being. Prime promptly shows up ''right next to the building'' with:
