    In "Rock Bottom", shortly after Jack arrives, Starscream says, "And then there were two." What does that mean? Yeah, there were two humans alright, but it sounded like Scream was quoting from something. A religious text perhaps? Who knows.

    Starscream was quoting a pretty well-known and not very politically correct poem.

    Didn't he also say it after Jack and Miko left? It wouldn't make much sense if he said it before hand and I don't remember finding the timing off when I watched it.

    Yeah, he did say it after Jack and Miko left. He could be referring to himself and Bulkhead with a random quote from the Transformers religious text or something. Who knows. This poor Starscream is a bit mentally ill and does love to talk to himself. I just found what he said interesting.

    Oh well. Great episode regardless.

    I doubt it was religious or quoting anything. It's a common phrase in fiction, especially in dramatic moments like that.

    Not to over analyze the question:

    It is not religious but it was from an Agatha Christie mystery novel from England.

    In short, she wrote a story about 10 people landing on an island and everyone died mysteriously.

    or

    Starscream could be talking to himself.

    It could be a basis of a future episode we'll see.

    Maybe Scream likes to read Agatha Christie novels? :lol 

    Thanks for letting me know where this quote could have come from. Very intersting. Wherever it came from, it was an interesting thing for Scream to say.

    God, I love this episode!

    It's a very common thing to say in fiction when a person leaves behind a duo.

    Screamer does come out with some good dialogue.
