    Everybody knows the hits:
    Freedom is the right of all sentient beings
    one shall stand, one shall fall
    Do not grieve. Soon I shall be one with the matrix
    Fate rarely calls upon us at a moment of our choosing.

    But I think we just got a new one in Transformers Prime: legecy

    "We must never loose sight of the fact that apon this earth, We are titans. And such power must be used wisely.

    If you ask me it is classic prime.

    would have been a little better if Silas hadn't just used the "titans" bit in the last episode.

    I thought he was going to say WITH GREAT POWER COMES GREAT RESPONSABILITY

    I basically sighed in relief when he did not. Major "pheeeeeew" there.

    Same.

    As it stands it's just a rather generic bit of Optimus "wisdom." Not horirble, but not deserving of the "OMG SO EPIIIIIIIC" people are giving it. As said the descriptor of "titans" has been used a lot so it's hardly unique or meanginful at this point.

    I like it, as a one-off thing, but it's a bit too long to be added to the list of phrases Hasbro beats us over the head with....





    ...might cause some brain damage......

    I don't think it's so much what he said, but HOW he said it that made it epic. I think season 3 might happen sans Megatron....

    No. I dismissed it as just one of those things you expect Optimus would say and nothing more. In order for a line to be rendered "classic", it must stand the test of time and never lose the impact of its meaning. If OP continuously used the line you provided through every form of Transformers from here on, it would get old fast.

    Didn't feel epic to me. Just another one of the tons of moral narrations this Optimus does.

    And is it just me or is the word "epic" getting overused to hell?

    I got a brief epic feeling because of the way he said "titans", but then it died down.

    I was glad that OP wasn't preachy after he got the sword, other than what he said to Smokes.

    The line I liked was when Jack said "I pulled a Miko".

    I totally agree. Bad timing. It rung a bit hollow to be because of that.

    Perhaps Optimus might become a jerk over the remained of the season.

    then Alpha Trion comes in and sets him straight.

    I just thought he was trying his best not to say the Spiderman line.

    Yeap. People using it left and right as if they just discovered the meaning of it. Now everything is epic

    Epic is overused on an epic scale.
