Do you think the way Sam and Mikaela got together in TF1 would work in real life ?

    The title speaks for itself. I think that, in real life, Mikaela at some point would freak out and just run away.

    Well, at least the story establishes the point that Mikaela ain't exactly a "naive everygirl" and had run-ins with the law in the past and such. She's probably stuck her neck out for her dad before.

    Sure, giant stompy death robots are a bit different than the cops, but she's established to not shy away from danger.

    It barely works in the movie. The whole film hinges on the thin and illogical "Fifty years from now do you want to say you got in the car?" Without that forced bit there is no movie.

    While not as common in real life as in movies, a good pickup line like that could spark something.

    That's the thing. It's not a good pickup line. It's some stupid attempt at a person's vanity immediately following them almost being killed in an extraordinarily ridiculous manner (i.e. giant robots from space). Any person with a modicum of sense would respond, "Fifty years from now I'd like to say I lived." and leave that jittery dork on his own.

    The whole 'Fifty years from now' killed it for me. It's such a flimsy line.
    Sam shoulda tried a nerd pickup line.

    Yes but they are teenagers so they are more naive, they will take more chances and are more adventurous. Remember back to when you were a teen and all the dumb things you did.

    If Transformers -- or any giant, transforming robots for that matter -- come to Earth in Real Life, then I'd highly doubt that Sam and Mikaela -- or any boy and girl who encounter said giant transforming robots -- would get together and stay together as a couple through their meeting and interacting with alien robots.

    Look at Sam.

    [​IMG]

    Now look at Mikaela.

    Conclusion: Not even in Sam's wildest dreams, no matter how smooth the pickup line was. And it wasn't even that good of a pickup line anyway.

    Ever notice a really hot chick with an old guy or some really fat dude? It's called money. Money will make any man much more appealing. I know that's not the case here but it is possible.

    I think if Sam had the "updated" version of Bumblebee first, then there's a chance with Mikaela. But Mikaela being picked up in a beaten old rusty car? No way! Girls are not only attracted to money, but hot cars as well. Well, hot cars usually equal money anyway so there you go. :D

    If we ever have an alien invasion of giant fucking robots, hopefully someone will make a thread with a similar story. Until then, no.

    Well, I think that would have to depend on how one interprets the term "giant fucking robots", because I might think about ditching Mikaela for the great alien robot orgy of 20XX...

    I had snu-snu...:)
