    Dinobot's death eulogy done with almost perfect delivery by most of the main cast

    The last few lines of Armada episode "Rebellion" from exceptional delivery from both David Kaye and Paul Dobson

    The whole scene at the observatory in TF1.

    This scene from Beast Machines. Just comes to show well Gary Chalk and David Kaye play off each other
    YouTube - Optimus Primal and Megatron discuss philosophy


    All of Vector Prime's lines from the episode "Guardian". Great job on Richard Newman's part.

    Ratchet's confrontation with Lockdown and his talk with Optimus at the end of Thrill of the Hunt. Corey Burton just shows how great of a voice actor is with those scenes.

    "To be or not to be; that is the question. These disks I hold, are they a record of what will be, or only what may? For if, the future is indeed imutably foretold, then my demise is but moments from the confirmation. For I, I could not live if not the master of my fate. But if the future can be changed, if these disks record merely one path of all the miriad ways the cosmos might conform, then their power is infinite, and yet, still limited. For they could be used but once, and in that change be rendered fiction, forevermore. I could destroy them! But no. That would be a coward's answer. I will know the truth instead. Then, it will be either them, or me, that face oblivion. Till then!..."
    "Destiny is one great test in store for us all. Has mine already come and have I failed it? A deed once done cannot be undone, but perhaps, it may yet be mitigated."
    "The question that once haunted my being has been answered. The future is not fixed, and my choices are my own. And yet, how ironic... for I now find that I have no choice at all! I am a warrior... let the battle be joined."
    All these quotes well delivered by Scott McNeil.


    Optimus's last words before his first death done well by Peter Cullen

    What do you think are some of the best delivered lines in TF media history?

    Off the top of my head...I always liked kay's delivery in the final beast wars episode " That is the most powerful decepticon warship in transformer history...the Nemisis" I always felt that line was done perfectly. It conveys megatron's maniacal joy at having such a powerful ship at his fingertips, while still sounding like he respects and is in awe of it.
    AlsoI agree wholeheartedly with your choices, especially this one -
    "The question that once haunted my being has been answered. The future is not fixed, and my choices are my own. And yet, how ironic... for I now find that I have no choice at all! I am a warrior... let the battle be joined.

    All of Dinobot's monologues in Beast Wars were simply amazing. I don't think i ever enjoyed Shakespeare as much as I did when Scott Mcneil delivered the lines lol.

    Bumblebee "I'm Bumblebee what is your name?"
    Sari " I'm Sari"
    Bumblebee "Don't be sorry, i like my name"


    A delivery worthy of the comedic genius and delivery of Abbott and Costello.

    Optimus primal " Diecast...It's a lost art"

    Thanx

    In addition to those here, I will again (as in previous threads) mention a great exchange from the '86 film.

    Megatron: "I would have waited an eternity for this. It's over, Prime."
    Optimus Prime: "NEVER!"

    G1 Prime: "Megatron must be stopped... no matter the cost"

    Waspinator: "Why universe hate Wazzzpinaturrrr??"

    Dinobot: Pretty much any line he ever said....especially if he says Vermin

    BW Megatron: Lots but my personal favorites are "Oh my crazed crustacean! Do you know what this means?" and "I like you pussy cat. Yesss..."

    Almost every line of Dialogue from BW Megatron comes to mine.

    "Say goodbye to the universe, Maximals! The future has changed, yes! The Autobots LOSE! Evil triumphs! And you... YOU no longer EXIST!"

    BW could've ended right there.

    Agreed, Beast Wars had spectacular acting. As did Beast Machines, even though no one apparently really liked it.

    Dinobot was great with his monologues, Megatron was hilarious but menacing - "Destroy this valley! And all in it!!! (to the Predacons)", "This is MY world! (to Tigerhawk)", "I am your master! YOUR CREATOR!!! (to Dinobot II)."

    Depth Charge's last words to Rampage were absolutely hard-core and vicious. "Take it STRAIGHT to the Pit, you sickening piece of SLAG.

    Primal in those end-of episodes (a la Agenda, Nemesis, Other Voices, End of the Line, Endgame) was spectacular.

    Animated Starscream was incredible - "THERE IS NO MEGATRON!!!!!!!" All his yelling and screeching and what not.

    Movie Prime is pretty great too - you can tell the war has worn him, and has really taken a toll on his Spark. He's lost so many friends, comrades, and his home. Especially in the Observatory sequence, his TF1 ending speech, and when he asks for help from Sam.

    07 and RotF Prime delivers great dialogue, but in saying that, I think about 90% of Prime's lines were just cool one liners. My favourite is still "fate rarely calls upon us at a moment of our choosing" or however it goes.

    Due to watching it so many times, a lot of the 86 lines stick in my head.

    "I got better things to do tonight than die!" being one of my favourite.

    The brief dialogue between prime and megatron is great

    "why through away your life so recklessly!?"

    "that's a question you should ask yourself Megatron"

    and so on and forth.

    David Kaye's performance in "Sparkwar pt. 3" in Beast Machines, where Megatron begins his descent into utter depravity, all the while emitting Kaye's most bone-chilling cackles.

    This thread makes me miss Beast Wars,
    I miss the new\transmetalled old character introductionary guitar riff.
    BW Megs speeches were fantastic, any lines by him. Shame he lost the humour in BM.

    I loved Beast Machines. Hell, I was on the edge of my seat for most of it. I thought BM Megatron was EASILY the most sinister Megatron ever.

    I'm pretty sure BW is going to dominate this thread, though.

    David Kaye has had a large chunk of good lines and delivery in the 14 years he's been a major voice actor.

    "BEFORE TIME BEGAN..."

    Cullen's voice just BOOMED out of the speakers. Good call on Bay's part bringing up the bass tones in the Prime voice.
