-->'''Cade''': Took a hell of a hit, you know. The missile just missed your power source.
-->'''Optimus''': We call it a Spark. It contains our life force and our memories.
-->'''Cade''': Yeah, we call it a soul.
-->'''Optimus''': Cade. Why are you willing to help me?

-->'''Cade''': When you said you were done fighting for humans, you didn't mean that, did you?
-->'''Optimus Prime''': How many more of my kind must be sacrificed to atone for YOUR mistakes?
-->'''Cade''': [[HumansAreFlawed What do you think being human means? That's what we do. We make mistakes.]] Sometimes, out of those mistakes come the most amazing things. When I fixed you, it was for a reward. That was it. That was why--the money. And it was me making a mistake. Without it, you wouldn't be here. So even if you got no faith in us, I'm asking you to do what I do. I'm asking you to look at all the junk and see the treasure. You gotta have faith, Prime, in who we can be.

* Tessa convinces Bumblebee to take them back and assist Cade and Optimus against Lockdown, because she won't leave her father behind. Whilst this in itself is touching, it's made doubly touching in that, earlier in the film, Optimus compares Cade's issues to raising her as a teenager to the same thing he went through with Bumblebee, effectively making him a ParentalSubstitute to the young Autobot. This is further emphasized by the reactions of Cade and a currently-incapacitated Optimus when they return. Cade bemoans how Tessa "never listens" whilst Optimus exclaims that he gave Bumblebee an order to get out of there. Bumblebee ignores him and goes ''straight'' for Lockdown in order to protect Optimus.
* The Chinese airstrikes that force Galvatron to retreat don't scratch a single autobot. It seems someone remembered they were on humanity's side after all.

** Also, earlier in the film when Cade, Shane, and the Autobots have just boarded Lockdown's ship to rescue Optimus and Tessa, Crosshairs begins to leave, stating that he has no interests whatsoever. Hound then threatens Crosshairs at gunpoint, asserting him that none of them are leaving until they rescue Optimus AND Tessa. It's heartening to see that Hound knows how much Tessa's safety means to Cade.

* Cade goes into the final battle to help Optimus. Cade, who lost his brother and nearly lost his daughter, and has no reason to go back beyond not wanting to let Optimus fight Lockdown alone. And then his daughter and future son-in-law come back to help him. It's no wonder Optimus changes his mind about humanity.
