    I rewatched ROTF yesterday and that part where bumblebee cries about Sam leaving is actually pretty sad IMO and that got me thinking: what if he did the same thing when WheeljaQ gets killed? Would it make that scene have more of an impact? Or would it just mak BB seem like a pu$$y?
    The reason I didn't suggest he do it when ironhide dies is because he would have gotten killed by sentinel BTW :p

    Bumblebee was crying for comedic effect and to make himself look pitiful to endear Sam to keep him. It wasn't actually crying, but fake-crying while shooting wiper fluid out of his eyes.

    It was sad, but when in the movies has any character cared much about the death of any other character. "He's dead... oh well, time to stand looking at the sunset while Linkin Park plays"

    Since Bumblebee's waterworks were sarcastic and visually ridiculous, I think having him do the same thing when comrades die would have actually had the opposite effect that the OP was looking for. I think Bumblebee would have been able to get that point across with body language alone.

    Not sad at all, I laughed rather than found it sad.

    It would have carried more weight, say if Ironhide or Q had died, if Bee collapsed to his knees (being defeated), and they did a close up of his face so that you could see the emotions being overcome by rage.

    I think it's ridiculous. Robots shouldn't cry or piss on John Turturro.

    I still never saw the point of Bee pissing on Simmons other than gross toiliet humour.

    Yeah that was a little weird and uncalled for. Just because Mojo peed on Ironhide doesn't mean Bee can do it to Simmons!

    I felt sad because Sam was leaving without him but I laughed at how Bee over-reacted and did that whole crying thing. It was so cute and I thought it showed some of Bee's character, a rare thing to see in these Bayformers movies.

    I agree that they shouldn't "lubricate" on people. And that shot served no purpose. But simulating human "tears" by leaking windshield washer fluid is fine by me.

    Bumblebee's behavior just seems odd when you remember that when he speaks, he's a deep-voiced British man.

    actually, he sprayed it in his eye and it dripped down his face. just to be picky. :D 

    :lol  i wish that whole scene was in the actual movie. it has more character than the final scene they used.

    i think the one in the movie was sad butthe one in the showest footage is one of the funniest things in the trilogy.

    Frankly, the emotions of ALL the robots could have been expressed so much better if they...you know...had actual mouths and not some circular stuff that only serves to make them look alien. BB, Starscream, and Mirage are all guilty of this.

    They are aliens, robot aliens. And they should have designed their faces better, like Optimus Prime. I think it's impossible for him to even remotely smile, which I would have like to have seen.

    Bee showed plenty of emotion when Q died. When you are in the field like that, in that situation, it isn't exactly the time to start crying though. Take the fact he added the "goodbye old friend", while he was being moved into position, he stopped to grab Q as if he was having a emotional outbreak from his death. There was a hell of a lot more emotion to that scene than BB's "crying" in ROTF.

    If you really wanna get picky, he had more emotion when Sam died in ROTF, than the "crying".
