[The Autobots meet Sam and Mikaela in an alley]
Optimus Prime: Are you Samuel James Witwicky, descendant of Archibald Witwicky?
Mikaela Banes: [stunned] They know your name!
Sam Witwicky: Yeah.
Optimus Prime: My name is Optimus Prime. We are Autonomous Robotic Organisms from the planet Cybetron.
Ratchet: But you can call us "Autobots" for short.
Sam Witwicky: Autobots.
Jazz: What's crackin', little bitches? [does a somersault]
Optimus Prime: My first lieutenant. Designation: Jazz.
Jazz: This looks like a cool place to kick it! [jumps onto a car behind him as if it were a chair]
Sam Witwicky: What is that? How did he learn to talk like that?
Optimus Prime: We've learned Earth's languages through the World Wide Web. [points to Ironhide] My weapons specialist, Ironhide.
Ironhide: [brandishing his weapons] You feeling lucky, punk?
Optimus Prime: Easy, Ironhide.
Ironhide: Just kidding, I just wanted to show him my cannons.
Optimus Prime: Our medical officer, Ratchet.
Ratchet: [sniffing] The boy's pheromone levels suggest he wants to mate with the female.
[Mikaela scratches her head in embarassment - Sam whistles]
Optimus Prime: You already know your guardian, Bumblebee.
Bumblebee: [does a little dance] Check to the rep/Yep, second to none.
Sam Witwicky: Bumblebee, right? You're my guardian, huh? [Bumblebee nods]
Ratchet: His vocal processors were damaged in battle. I'm still working on them.
Mikaela Banes: Why are you here?
Optimus Prime: We are here looking for the All Spark, and we must find it before Megatron.
Sam Witwicky: Mega-what?
Optimus Prime: [produces a hologram of Cybertron for Sam and Mikaela to see] Our planet was once a powerful empire, peaceful and just, until we were betrayed by Megatron, leader of the Decepticons. All who defied them were destroyed. Our war finally consumed the planet, and the Allspark was lost to the stars. Megatron followed it to Earth, where Captain Witwicky found him.
Sam Witwicky: My grandfather...?
Optimus Prime: It was an accident that intertwined our fates. [flashbacks to Archibald's discovery of Megatron in the ice] Megatron crash-landed before he could retreive the Cube. He accidentally activated his navigation system. The coordinates to the Cube's location on Earth were inprinted on his glasses.
Sam Witwicky: How did you know about his glasses?
Optimus Prime: eBay.
Sam Witwicky: eBay...
Ratchet: If the Decepticons find the Allspark, they'll use its power to transform Earth's machines, and build a new army.
Optimus Prime: And the human race will be extinguished. Sam Witwicky, you hold the key to Earth's survival.
Mikaela Banes: [to Sam] Please tell me you have those glasses.
