    Ive searched this but can't find it so i hope im not gonna bring something up thats been round the forums already :p 

    The TF series is full of some awesome lines. My favourite probably being:

    "Is it fear or courage that compels you, fleshling?"

    However, there are quite a lot that just arent really needed. Im looking at the lines that were at the end of each movie. Was cool in the first one, the rest were just pretty lame!

    So, what is your favourite quote in the trilogy? and also, do you think they overdid some of it?

    If there's one thing the TF movies consistently brought to the table, it was great one-liners.

    Often aided by the fantastic gravitas of Peter Cullen and Hugo Weaving's voices.

    I still love everything the Wreckers said, for some unknown reason! Maybe it's just the fact that I love the Wreckers! :lol

    So many choices I have.

    "Punk-ass Decepticon!"

    "This fool is terribly misinformed."

    "Damn, I'm good!"

    "You DARE point a gun at ME?! You want a piece of me?! I will TEAR YOU APART!"

    "He's in a bad mood. He's not talkin' to anybody today."

    "Ha Ha! On de ground per favore and STAY there!"

    "Prime! Make something of yourself! He's pissed."

    "The ship?! We wah nevah in dah ship! We designed the damn thing didn't we?!"

    "Wreckahs, KILL 'IM!"

    "This is going to hurt, A LOT!"

    "Time to find out."

    And the top three:

    "Whoa, little mexican standoff we got here."

    "And we'll let you escape with your dignity."

    "Class Dismissed."

    Off the top of my head, this/\/\/\

    and in TF1 when Ironhide suggests killing Sam's parents, Optimus admonishes him with something along the lines of
    "Ironhide, what is wrong with you!?" then Ironhide says something like (not verbatim) "I was just saying it was an option... If we wanted to" :lol  that exchange always cracked me up!

    Every-time Megatron and Optimus banter, pure gold comes out of it:

    "Humans don't deserve to live."
    "They deserve to choose for themselves!"
    "Then you will die with them! Join them in extinction!"

    All great one-liners from both parties.

    "Is the future of our race not worth a single human life?"
    "You'll never stop at one. [Unsheathes his left blade] I'll take you all on!"

    And last but not least:

    "Who would you be without me, Prime?"
    "Time to find out."

    Badass.

    Pretty sick :) 

    There was one line though that was thrown in that could have been saved for another duel between them, the "on this day, one shall stand, one shall fall".

    "It is time for the slaves of Earth to recognize their masters. Seal off the city.

    Oh, this reminds me of another one I forgot:

    "It's just you and me, Megatron."
    "No, it's just ME, PRIIIME."

    Also from TF2007, we had:

    Optimus - "Autobots, RELIEF THE HUMANS FROM THEIR WEAPONRY." a pretty simple order, but badass.

    ROTF, we had:

    The Fallen - "NOW I CLAIM YOUR SUN!"/"DIE LIKE YOUR BROTHERS!"/"MY MATRIX!" [said as he rips the Matrix out of Optimus' chest], "Find the boy or your world will be no more.".

    In fact, The Fallen pretty much only speaks in badass one-liners when he's not talking to Megatron.

    Optimus - "Piece of tin."/ "Not today." [in response to Demolishor's Famous Last Words].

    Ratchet - "This fool is terribly misinformed."

    Sideswipe - "Damn, I'm Good."

    Jetfire - "BEHOLD, THE ETERNAL GLORY OF JETFIRAAAAH" [it seems to be his catchphrase, in fact]/"Let me show you how we brought the PAIN in my day."

    Megatron - "No more hiding, no more disguises, no mercy!"/ "You are so weak."

    DOTM:

    Ironhide - "Class Dismissed."/ "CONSIDER IT DONE!" [a pretty badass answer].

    Optimus - "You, DIE"/ "We will kill them all" [and the Time to Find out one]/"You'll have to go THROUGH ME!"/ "GET DOWN HERE, SENTINEL."

    Ratchet - "Target the Bridge!" Worthy of note because it's goddamn Ratchet. He's awesome.

    Leadfoot- "Wreckers, KILL IT."

    Roadbuster/Leadfoot - "This is going to hurt, A LOT." [nobody is sure which of them says the line].

    Dino/Mirage - "HA-HA! ON THE GROUND, PER FAVORE and STAY THERE!" Anthony Quinn just nails it.

    Wheelie and Brains - "No one's exiling us!" Worthy of note because DAMN, that's Wheelie being badass. There's something you don't see every day.

    Sentinel Prime - "I hereby discharge you from duty!"/ "Seal off the city."/ "LET THE HUMANS RECOGNIZE THEIR MASTERS OR PERISH!"/"On this planet, there can only be ONE."/ "Optimus, you forget your place."/ "I will ignore your condescending tone if you HEED THE GRAVITY OF MINE."

    Megatron - "THIS! IS! MY! PLANET!"/ "Here. Fight us now"/ "Time to eliminate the loose ends!"

    Soundwave - "Laserbeak. Kill them all."/ "No prisioners, only trophies."

    Starscream - "Thought you were working for us, BOY?" What a fucking troll.

    Laserbeak - "Pleasure working with you."/ "My superiors told me to..suicide you"/ "With pleasure." [in answer to Soundwave's order? This sounds remarkably creepy] and last but not least: "Is your daddy home?" and cue my nightmare for six months!

    Human Ones:

    "BRING THE RAIN!" - Epps.

    "Crankin' steel!" - One of the NEST soldiers.

    "ONE MAN. ALONE. BETRAYED BY THE COUNTRY HE LOVES." - Simmons.

    "Tell Megatron...let's tango." - Simmons.

    Damn, DOTM has some good lines.

    There are so many. I think I'll go with "On Cybertron, we were gods! Here, they call us machines." for my favorite because it explains why I think that Sentinel didn't deserve execution.

    My favorites are "Damn I'm good" and "The boy's pheromone level suggests he wants to mate with the female."
