Starscream: Hello… Starscream here.
Starscream: Hey, I heard you guys flying around down there, so, I just thought I’d wait for you here. I know you must be surprised to see me here.
Ratchet: Not really, since you’ve followed us all over the world.
Starscream: Right. Well, uhhh … anyway … what I wanted to tell you about is that I’ve changed, and I, uhhh, I’m good now, and well I think I should join your group. See, I, uhhh …
Bulkhead: You want to what now?
Arcee: You can’t possibly think that any of us would trust you, can you? I mean, how stupid do you think we are?!
Ratchet: Yeah, all you’ve ever done is hunt us down and try to capture us!
Starscream I’ve done some good things! I mean, I could have killed Arcee when Airachnid tied her up, but I set her free. That’s something!
Bulkhead: He does have a point there.
Ratchet: He probably just did that to trick us. I’m not buying it.
Starscream: I can understand why you wouldn’t trust me, and I know I’ve made some mistakes in the past.
Ratchet: Like when you helped Megatron and later MECH?
Arcee: Or when you killed Cliffjumper?
Starscream: Look, I admit I’ve some awful things. I was wrong to try to kill you, and I’m sorry that I attacked your humans. And I never should have tried to use dark energon against you… Why aren’t you saying anything, Optimus? You once said you thought we could be friends. You know I have good in me.
Optimus: …There’s no way we can trust you after everything you’ve done. We’ll never let you join us.
Arcee: You need to get out of here. Now.
Starscream: I’m trying to explain that I’m not that person anymore!
Bulkhead: Either you leave, or we attack.
Starscream: If you won’t accept me as a friend, then maybe you’ll take me as a prisoner.
Ratchet: No, we won’t! Get out of here, and don’t come back! And if we ever see you again, well, we’d better not see you again!
