    Did anyone notice during the scene in Sam's backyard, when Ironhide says: "The humans are very annoying, can I take them out?" to Prime, Ratchet nods his head vigerously, saying "yeah, yeah, yeah" and actualy points Ironhide's left cannon at the house! I wasn't sure at first but now I'm positive after seeing the movie again. I busted out laughing!

    So much for "all life is precious".;lol

    To be fair, Ratchet seemed much more likeable in this version.

    I hated his G1 persona, or what little of it there was, but Movie Ratchet, he was awesome.
    His bits outside the house, the powerlines, his trying to talk Prime out of his decision and the 'mating' moment (made the whole cinema burst into laughter), were pure awesomeness.

    Movie Ratchet wooo!

    EDIT: Also, when the Autobots are moving away from the house, he nearly shoves Ironhide over, and theres a little background exchange between them.
    IIRC Ratchet tells Ironhide to be quiet, then walks into the powerlines, yells, smashes a greenhouse and slams to the ground. The Ironhide makes a snide remark.

    Ratchet was pretty funny when he was called on for humor.

    Ratchet and Ironhide reminded me of troublesome youths. Except one was Fraiser and one was a British Gunslinger.

    Those two never interacted much in G1. But their antics here gave each some nice character.

    I think Ratchet was trying to push down Ironhide's cannon and call him calm.

    But Yah, Ratchet is funny when he gets TOO obsessed about his profession XD

    I don't think he was, you could hear Ratchet going "Yeah. Yeah. Yeah !" When Ironhide was suggesting it.

    Nah, Im sure he was urging him on, I thought it was funny when I saw it.
    Ratchets green-ness draws attention to him, so I was focused on him most of that scene.

    I mean, lets face it, Him and Ironhide, they completely stole that scene.

    No, he was nodding and jumping, he even pulled Ironhide's gun up to the window.

    The greatest part of their relationship was that for all the bickering, those two had to hold down the battle themselves and worked in perfect unison. Jazz was a chewtoy, BB was a legless gimp, and Prime was a late arrival.
    I confess I never expected that much from those two.

    I really like Ratchet in this movie. He was a real chum with Ironhide, they were like SpongeBob and Patrick or Merry and Pipin in LOTR.

    Ironhide and Ratchet are two of my favourite G1 characters, and being that they shared the same molds, I thought it was great in the film they were a tag-team. I just can't stop praising how I happy I am with Ratchet's depiction: forget Jazz, he was the real second-in-command.

    They didn't seem very serious about it.

    I understand you like Ratchet but no need to slap my man Jazz down. He already got the business by Megatron anyway.
