    Ok, this could be completely old news but it is something I just noticed. I was rewatching TF1 and when Ironhide say, "the parents are very irritating, shall I terminate?" Ratchet is sort of jumping and nodding behind him, which leads to my question: WTF?

    Ratchet also tends to say perverted things out loud without thinking whether or not he should say them

    Yeah, that always makes me WTF Ratchet and his qualification as a medic and "protector of life".

    He was either just joking (likely, as he invited Ironhide to get electrocuted by power lines) or yeah, he's crazy.

    He didn't like being one-upped in the "Awkward moment supplier" position.

    In the german dub, Ratchet actually says something there, asking Ironhide to cooldown. I guess thats also what he was supposed to be doing in the english version, but i guess they just forgot about it.

    XD This part in the film had me laughing. Not because Ratchet was jumping up and down, but I swear I heard him say "Can I take them out?" to Ironhide. It might have been Ironhide requesting permission from Prime, but I'm pretty sure it was Ratchet.

    He was either jumping in a over-the-top and [failed] attempt to say: "STOP THAT, IRONHIDE!", either that meeting with the eletretic wires really messed up with his head.

    That was Ironhide.

    Judging by his performance throughout the trilogy, I'd wager Ratchet's a medical impersonator and not a real doctor.

    Hm, I always took his "yeah yeah yeah" to be "Yeah, we get it, now shut up" as opposed to actually egging him on. You can see other subtle buddy moments between the two at other points too, such as when they confront S7, one whacks the other with their gun.

    That was funny as Hell. "Yeah yeah yeah!!!" while jumping up and down and pointing Ironhide's cannon at Ron and Judy. :lolol 

    Meh. It was out of character for a medic who is supposed to protect life, yes, but Ratchet isn't exactly in the limelight often, if at all, so I pardoned it. Funny as Hell.

    He's questionable in the Prime cartoon as well. He's funny, but seems to eager to want to shove the little brats through the ground bridge to Japan.
