    I recently re-watched the Mexican stand-off scene again, and I was wondering. Did anything Crankcase and Crowbar say to eachother sound like english?

    I thought Crankcase said 'Crowbar', but I'm not too sure.

    I don't think it was English, although I wish they had spoken in English, or that there had at least been subtitles. I have a feeling they were probably just saying something like "Let's do it" or "Let's drop out weapons."

    Someone mentioned Crowbar saying "Can't go home", and I can't unhear it now.

    I'm also thoroughly convinced that either Crowbar or Crankcase (hopefully the latter) was the one to say "drop 'em".

    Decepticons that dont have bigger roles usually speak only in Cybertronian, so its more likely they were speaking Cybertronian.

    This is one of the few (perhaps only) scenes I actually like the Cons speaking Cybertronian. We could tell they were up to something, but there was none of that "how'd the other guys not hear them" worries.

    Decepticons speak Cybertronian among them because I think they must despise Earth's languages.

    Its not like Crowbar or Crankcase were expecting Ironhide and Sideswipe not undetstanding what they were saying...its their mother language for chrissakes xD...so unless they were speaking a rare dialect of Cybertronian, which I doubt existed, Ironhide and Sideswipe understood perfectly what they said.

    If any English is to be made out, it's likely unintentional. I didn't really catch anything.

    This is what I heard. I don't know if it's intentional or not, but if sounded like this to me.

    I think that scene was one of the best uses of unsubtitled Cybertronian. It was much more suspensful knowing they were cooking something up, but not knowing what until BOOM weapons on their backs.

    someone said "Drop em" im pretty sure it was Crankcase or Crowbar as it didnt sound like Sideswipe or Ironhide.
