Episode Quotes

Galvatron: There will be no war today, Optimus Prime. You have earned Galvatron's respect.
Quintesson: PLEASE STOP!
Galvatron: Never Quintesson! This world is OURS! OPTIMUS PRIME SHALL DIE AGAIN! [Lights start to come out of Optimus. Galvatron stops] What? What is this?
Optimus Prime: [Optimus awakens, opens his chest and removes the matrix and opens it] Now light our darkest hour!
Hot Rod: [as Galvatron Walks past them] Does this mean the fighting will continue?
Kup: Hard to say.
Galvatron: [Galvatron shakes Optimus Prime's hand] There shall be no war today Optimus. You have *earned* Galvatron's respect!


  • Goof (continuity error): As the Autobots are discussing all that has happened, Prime turns gray for a moment. By this time, his protective paint has either worn off, or he has been painted over with his true colors.
  • Goof (revealing mistake): When the Autobots all drive off in the last scene, Kup is drawn backwards, making it look like he's driving in reverse.
  • Goof (errors made by characters, possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): Galvatron states as a fact that Autobots, as a rule, cannot fly. While this rule has become accepted since then, in earlier episodes, Autobots were shown to be capable of flight.
  • Goof (plot holes): If the substance they coat Optimus Prime with is so resistant to external effects as the characters claim, how did they melt it into a liquid in the first place?
