Added DiffLines:

* While walking through NEST headquarters, Sam sees and acknowledges Ironhide and Ratchet. It's easy to miss but both greet him back with engine revving and lighting up siren lights.


** At the beginning of the movie, after all of the drama setting up the details behind the discovery of the Autobot ship on the Moon, we get an introductory scene with Carly that gives us a bit of insight on her and Sam's relationship at this point, complete with flashbacks to how it all started. Carly gifts Sam with a stuffed "lucky bunny", prompting some cute banter between them when Sam comments that it's usually "just the foot" as they go about waking up and getting ready for their respective days, and generally just making for a calm, adorable scene in an otherwise action-charged film. [[Funny/TransformersDarkOfTheMoon And then Brains ruins it.]]

* Optimus telling Sam that they will always be friends was both this and a TearJerker.

-->'''Buzz Aldrin:''' From a fellow space traveler, it's an honor meeting you.

Added DiffLines:

** The latter phrase is especially touching, considering that it comes from a former Decepticon.


** Another special mention goes to when Neil Armstrong says "the eagle has landed." Cue the heartwarming montage of Mission Control applauding and Walter Cronkite with a big smile on his face, with [[AwesomeMusic Steve Jabonsky's score added to the mix]].

** On that note, just the visual of Sam with his hand over Bee's mouth had this troper wibbling a bit.
** Especially heartwarming when one remembers that the series was made partly with the idea of it being a story about "a boy and his car."



** In that moment, we see him for what he is deep down inside: a being who's [[YouCantGoHomeAgain lost his first home to destruction]], and just wants to fix it again. In that moment, for this Troper, at least, Megatron might have redeemed himself a bit in his eyes. Which makes [[spoiler:seeing him die, for sure this time, with the object of all he's worked toward fixing imploding into oblivion]]... it's almost a TearJerker.

* YMMV, but Sam and Carly running into each others' arms at the end of the movie. You can tell how happy and relieved they both are they made it out of this alive.

Wheelie- Remember, in ROTF, he was working for the 'Cons just because they would smash him if he didn't do what they say. By the time Chicago comes around, he rides proudly into battle with the Wreckers and Brains. He could easily have ditched them outside the city, but he stayed. He even had the bearings to take on a Decepticon ship.
