    I think I missed that one in the movie. Or I forget when they said that in the movie. They never gave a clear answer I think?

    Can someone explain this to me?

    Now that i think of it, isn't Optimus' speech at the end of TLK basically the exact same as the one at the end of the first movie? (Humans are brave, all remaining Autobots come here, etc.)

    It was a mix of the first one and the one from ROTF.

    You're 100% right. Also in the trailer they made it look like that line had some weight to it. In the actual movie the line is just said in an introduction just to sound funny and worst of all we never get a proper explanation.

    I think the only reason Bay cast Hopkins is so he can have him say things you would never hear him say in another movie ever. For example that is a "bitchin ride". I that was the line anyway.
