    Why is Optimus Prime being so impatient and immature when he's waiting for Sam to find the glasses? That's not how our Prime of old would have reacted. Ironhide should at least have been the impatient one, with Prime ordering him to stop and wait...

    I think it was because they where trying to make that scene funny. Not counting Sam’s Happy Time I thought that whole part ran on far to long and was to shticky.

    It did run for a while, but then again it was the only real attempt at character developement for the Autobots too. I mean if that scene hadn't taken place, the movie would have been all car chase scenes and explosions...instead of mostly car chase scenes and explosions. LOL!

    The Decepticons are mobilizing, they don't have time to sit around and let some kid talk to his parents.

    Yeah, that might make Prime a little grumpy. Plus, he doesn't know Sam all that well at that point in the movie. Maybe his opinion of humans isn't all that high yet.

    Agreed with everything that was said. Yes he was a little bit od a Dick, but Sam was a litte lippy for a fleshbag too.

    Lets see, if your planet, friends and abundance of happiness had been sucked out of your life because of some damned cube, I would be very impatient to get the damn thing back too

    Plus, Prime couldn't see what Sam was doing. All he knows was that he went inside the house to get one little thing and then come right back out, he didn't expect him to be in there so long. I don't think the scene played in real time, either.. it was probably closer to 20-30 minutes instead of the four or five that we saw.

    He caught on a bit toward the end, though, when he realized that Sam didn't know exactly where they were and he was trying to be sneaky about finding them. Bumblebee seemed to be the only one that got it from the start, with his hi-larious "hushing" motions to Prime. Probably because he'd spent more time with humans and understood them better.

    I was wondering how Bumblebee got fixed in the end of the movie.

    The Allspark, I think restored his voice. Maybe Ratchet fixed his feet.

    I didn't mind that, really.

    But I did mind when he said "Oh shit, my bad". I mean, that isn't the Prime I know.

    I liked that about Prime.. it gave him a character flaw. I mean prime is so perfect and noble most of the time. There was even some hints of this in G1. In a way it's very befitting him.

    Plus you have to consider the situation. His planet it dead or dieing, the All Spark could bring doom to the earth and possibly countless other worlds. He traveled god knows how far to get to earth. They had been searching for it for thousands of years.

    Lets say you had a million dollars... and miss placed it, but a mouse found it.... you may be a little impatient too.

    "As the Earthlings would say, lay it on me, man."
    "As the humans say, Fat chance, Fathead!"
    "What do you know? A boobie-trap that catches boobies!"


    Yes, old Prime was so dignified :p

    He said "Sorry, my bad". Not "Shit, my bad."

    I really like that scene now, the more I think about it.
    It really established the "good guys" in my mind.
    It showed that they were more than heartless machines.
    The were funny, quirky, living beings with senses of humor.
    More than fighting robots.
    They were they were (somewhat) caring beings.
    More than meets they eye!
    Sorry, had to say it.
