    Definitely "pathetic fools, there's no escape!" for me. It's Latta's delivery, mainly, everything the man read was gold

    Have to cast my vote and agree with these:

    The autobots would have lost eons ago if I'd been calling the shots.

    My desire for power is as great as yours!

    Everyone has a weakness.

    Time makes all things possible. I can wait. (best one IMO)

    and the G1 quote from his techspec, plus maybe the bit before Mirage sparks the ship in MTMTE where he aays "I won't miss this time"..or something close to it.

    All the best

    How's about they DON'T pump the next movie full of rehashes from the 86 movie, eh? Use your imagination, Roberto, and try to create some memorable lines yourself.

    I mean - Transformers Animated Starscream didn't re-use any of G1 Starscream's lines, and he already has won his place in my memory with lines like the "Yes, yes, yes! Brilliant strategy, oh wise and great leader!" or "Solemn face, solemn face... " :) 

    I mean, many of the G1 lines in the Bayformers movie last summer felt really... forced. Like the 'one shall stand...' especially since the following fight mostly happened off-screen.

    If they want to honor G1, honor it by staying true to the character's personality and appearance. Not by giving G1 lines into the mouth of an overgrown gorilla.

    I know is not G1 and I don't even care about Transformers Animated but I like this conversation:

    Pilot: Unidentified aircraft entering US airspace over Michigan. Identify yourself, or you will be considered as a hostile.

    Starscream: You haven't seen hostile yet!!

    When Starscream would collect energon by himself he would normally say " All hail the desepticons!" or I think it was in the original movie he saaid "All hail the decepticons and their new leader!"

    "How do you feel oh mighty megatron?" *kick*

    depending on megatrons fractured return to the movie I think this line is a classic fans will recognize.

    beat me to it. It is a funny line, though I can't see movie starscream saying it.

    "pathetic fools theres no escape" would be good as well. Come to think of it its one of the few good lines that don't trace back to megatron in some way.

    "Oh, how it pains me to do this"

    "I will rule the universe, even if I am the only one left in the universe!"

    "Conquest is made of the ashes of one's enemies"

    Top three choices for me. The first one shows how he's cruel yet sarcastic as we all know what he'd be doing wouldn't pain him at all and the second two show his boundless ambition and show just how far he's willing to go, and just how vicious he's willing to be, to achieve his goals.

    I dunno, a lot of the movie lines were pretty memorable for their characters. From Jazz's "what's crackin lil bitches" to Ratchet's "The boys pheromone levels indicate he wants to mate with the girl"(which also shows that TFs can smell stuff...while making perfect sense as to why and how :lol ) to Megatron's "If you're lucky I might keep you as a pet". But throwing in a G1 nod for the sake of the fans, like Megatron's "you failed me yet again Starscream" where it was done right, with Megatron in full view as he spoke, worked wonders as it fit with the character while showing the fans some love with a little easter egg. So having Starscream do the same, and having them do it right(as I agree the 'one shall stand etc' part was forced and possibly tacked on at the end) would be rather cool.

    In the end, it's more about how they say it rather then what they say, as it's the delivery that makes something memorible.

    I second anything from Animated and Cybertron. I love G1 and G1 Screamer, but to limit the choices to just that era of material would be a waste.

    From Ghost in the Machine:
    Scourge: Give me that blaster!
    Starscream: NO, get one of your own!

    *talking to Scourge* "For the strong silent type, you sure do talk too much!"

    From Triple Takeover:
    Megatron: Either you're lying or you're stupid!
    Starscream: I'm stupid, I'M STUPID!
    (What can I say, it's not the same without Megatron's line)

    From DW comics:
    From Vol 2. War and Peace: Countdown to Extinction
    *kills Reflector and pushes him out of the seat* "Is this seat taken?"

    From Vol. 3 Night of the Combaticons:
    "Autobots are so much more tolerable when they've been deactivated."

    From Vol. 3 Black Sunshine
    Skywarp: Ah slag! What do we do now, Starscream?!
    Starscream: Less questioning, more firing!

    *Talking to Bruticus* "Huh? Oh, you again. Sorry Brute, but-- unfortunately-- during times like this it's every mech for himself."

    Really would love that little scream of frustration that Starscream and Cobra Commander share when things aren't going their way.

    To get outside of the animated movie how about Beast Wars:

    "Allow me to present myself: Air Commander Starscream of the Decepticon battle fleet!"

    "Lesson One: Always show compassion. It's a useful cover for your true motives."

    "Flattery will get you flattened."

    "I'll be back! Even if it takes a thousand years, I'll be revenged on you allllllll!"

    Of course some fan quote about Starscreams chicken legs might also be a cool little insider joke if Orci could get it worked in.

    I love the line from "More than Meets the Eye pt. 1" where he's shooting the Ark saying:

    "I am just saying goodbye"

    My wife's favorite Starscream line is, "I, Starscream, am your new leader." If that were to make the cut in the new movie, she would lose her mind. She'd probably be so happy about it she'd start crying in the theater the way I did with the Autobot Arrival in TF1.
