ACT ONE

RODIMUS PRIME

Last big party of the summer, folks! Let's go out with a bang!

ULTRA MAGNUS

Just once, couldn't your attitude reflect the gravity of the situation?

RODIMUS PRIME

Not if I can help it!

JUDGE DELIBERATA

Yes! Yes! Even if it means my life is forfeit! Destroy them! Destroy -- ooh!

GRIMLOCK

Me Grimlock say shut your faces!

BLAST OFF

The Autobots are helpless! This time their doom is certain!

DEAD END

And we owe this grand opportunity entirely to our new allies.

BLAST OFF

I do not take your meaning.

SWINDLE

He means, what other opportunities--

GALVATRON

Now, Decepticons, learn the price of your disloyalty!

Attack!

CYCLONUS

Attack whom?

Galvatron blasts Cyclonus.

CYCLONUS

Uhh!

GALVATRON

Everyone!

BLAST OFF

Fire from the rear!

DEAD END

What matter whether death comes from in front or behind? Death is death!

SWINDLE

We've been double-crossed!

GALVATRON

You have forsaken the Decepticons' one true leader, and for your treachery you will pay!

MOTORMASTER

Galvatron, you have returned!

GALVATRON

Beg for your life!

MOTORMASTER

Spare me and I am yours to command! Hail Galvatron!

THE SWEEPS
(in unison)

Hail Galvatron! Hail Galvatron!

SWINDLE

They gave us energon! They led us on this raid! What can you give us that they didn't?

GALVATRON

"They?" "They??" Who are "they??"

Perhaps I should introduce myself!

Decepticon to Autobot

RODIMUS PRIME

We should have been molten by now. What's going on up there?

ULTRA MAGNUS

Sloppiness. Disorganization. As I've tried to teach you, undisciplined thinking can make even the simplest task impossible.

None of these devices, except the TVs, are functioning.

RODIMUS PRIME

Wait a second. I've got a feeling.

Rodimus Prime twiddles a few knobs, making a screen activate with the image of Junkion commander Wreck-Gar.

WRECK-GAR

Hello, hello, hello, you out there in Television Land! Glad you used the dial -- wish everybody would.

ULTRA MAGNUS

Wreck-Gar?

RODIMUS PRIME

I thought so.

WRECK-GAR

Kimosabes Rodimus and Ultra Magnus, you look like brand new. Radio, we go wide, warts and all, but why do you come on down to Goo?

RODIMUS PRIME

We didn't come on down, we crashed here.

WRECK-GAR

Bulletin: You are in danger of being canceled or losing your time slot.

ULTRA MAGNUS

What's he talking about?

RODIMUS PRIME

We're gonna get killed. Wreck-Gar, we need personalized service with friendly convenient payment terms. Let's all be there?

WRECK-GAR

While you wait for me, Wreck-Gar will put you in good hands.

Autobot to Autobot

MARISSA FAIREBORN

Faireborn to Metroplex. Entering Jupiter's magnetic field.

BLASTER

I got static boogie all over my screen already. Any sign of Blurr and Wheelie?

MARISSA FAIREBORN

Continuing to scan.

If you can still hear me, Blaster, I think I've spotted them! Alive! But something's very wrong down there. I'm going after them!

Wheelie struggles with a flock of strange, bat-like creatures.

WHEELIE

Uhh! Keep one away, others play!

Ooh! Ooh! Uhh! Ooh!

BLURR

I'm okay, but you're in bad shape! I just can't leave you in bad shape, so I gotta do something to save you, but that'll probably put me in bad shape!

WHEELIE

Ooh! Ohh! Uhh! Take the cog! You're faster!

Wheelie throws the transforming cog toward Blurr.

WHEELIE

Keep Metroplex from disaster!

MARISSA FAIREBORN

Autobot Blurr! Come aboard with the cog!

BLURR

We have to save Wheelie! What would I do without Wheelie? Now what am I gonna do? Either I save the cog or I save Wheelie, but if I save Wheelie, then she could get hurt and we might lose the cog, and so what am I gonna do and why do I always have to make decisions like this??
