    I thought he spoke at the end of the first movie - many people do. BUT. My brother noticed that his words at the end were taken from Star Wars where Obi-Wan stated he wanted to stay with the boy (Anikin)

    So I really don't think he spoke at all. The only time he actually did speak was in ROTF but as we know that was cut out.

    I could be wrong though.

    He said "permission to speak, sir."

    And he was voiced by Mark Ryan. That was no Star Wars clip.

    I just hope he sort of speaks in TF3. It doesn't have to be much, but at least a couple of sentences.

    I have never heard Obi-Wan making that statement...ever... The closest line he had in Episode 3 was, I will take the boy to him family and look after him. Those lines were all Mark Ryan, Bee's mouth moved during that whole thing as well.

    Wish they would've kept the "what... is... your... purpose... Sam?" dialogue from ROTF.

    Same here. It more firmly established that he could talk a little, just not very much and prefered being silent.

    There might be some truth to this, but another scene where BB probably had a hint of some voice over was back in TF1; when Ratched mentioned he has beey trying to fix his voice.
    Darn, wish Bay could let us know about this, BB talking I wouldn't mind as far as spoils are concerened.

    Bah, it's just an ordinary plot hole. He spoke, now he doesn't, they half-assedly explained it in the second. If a movie becomes too concerned with explaining every little detail, you lose track of the big picture.

    His injury has had enough time to heal. Let him speak and not just squeek and squawk..getting old.

    bumblebee should have his voice and have his radiotalk as a comic-relief

    Yeah, you're totally wrong. Mark Ryan did the voice, and it was horrible. Hopefully if movie-verse BB ever talks again it will sound a bit younger and less british.

    At this point anything will be better than the R2 D2 thing Bumblebee has going on in TF Prime.
