    When Director Miriam was asking if Optimus was giving her the silent treatment, Ironhide replied that they have seen that before. I've got to wonder the hows and whys and such about that. Was the former Director Galloway so upset with NEST for ditching him off the plane that he merely stared at everyone behind it? Maybe the Autobots blew up the wrong target and knocked off some allies by mistake. What do you guys think would cause someone to (and very comically at that) give the Autobots the silent treatment?

    I kind of took it as a reference that happened somewhere not on Earth. A past adventure.

    I think you misunderstood the context. When Ironhide said they've seen that before, he meant that they have seen Prime so pissed off before that he doesn't talk or reply to anyone, hence the 'silent treatment'. That's why Ironhide slapped him and told him to pull it together.

    He's a person too after all. If someone pissed you off by saying that they essentially knew your mentor/father figure was still alive on the Moon yet they never bothered to tell you after four or so years of teamwork, I'd be pretty pissed.

    That was probably my favorite exchange in the whole film besides "Sentinel's bitch."

    Dino: "He's... in a bad mood."
    Mearing: "Oh, what? Is this the silent treatment?"
    Ironhide: "Oh no. I've seen that."
    Quejack: "Definetly not."
    Ironhide: "This is worse. Prime! Make something of yourself!" *bang* "He's pissed."

    And quite frankly, as triggerhappy as Ironhide is, and Prime having to ask him in the first movie, "What is WITH you?!?", there's no question Ironhide's been in trouble with his boss at least a few... dozen times. Well if your subordinate blew up an entire moon, wouldn't you be pissed off at him? :lolol

    THIS.

    "We've seen that and this is not that. This is worse. Prime, make something of yourself! *DING!* He's pissed."

    Sorry, but everyone else was quoting it, so I felt left out.

    Or I guess you could also see it as simply a reference to an unknown past event. That works too.

    :lol  No, I don't think the silent treatement is much of a rebuttal to worldwide war and genocide.

    Miriam, Mearing, close enough. But be sure to correct all the Wheeljack/Q, Dino/Mirage mix ups too. Everytime I hear the name Dino, I think of that idiotic Flintstones pet.
