Favorite lines from the original cartoon

Apologies if there is already a thread like this. I didn't see one.

With 2020 being so crazy, it's made me think back to when I was a little kid in the 80's and life was simple. A big part of my childhood (and continues to be) was the original G1 cartoon. I thought it would be fun to have a thread where we can post all of our favorite lines from the original G1 cartoon, including the '86 movie.

For me, I'm a Decepticon fanboy, but in rewatching this with my son all these years later, I think that Springer has some of the best lines ever:

"I've got better things to do tonight than die!" (Best line of all time as far as I'm concerned)
"Seeing as how they would have detonated FOUR quarters, I think it was a good choice."
"Believe it or not, this is the fun part!"
"I don't know, but I hope THEY didn't get him!"
"Are you crazy? Why'd you short circuit yourself? Wake up, you...you moron!"
"Well well, Commander Modesty's here!"
"They'll pay for this, Arcee!" (One of my personal favorites because it alludes to their relationship)

What are some of your favorite lines from the original cartoon?

I think it's a bit unfair to include the movie, as it had better quality writing and voice acting. Not saying the cartoon was crap, but it shows the movie had a higher production value, and that includes writing and voice talents. I think even the voice actors who were on the show and in the movie put forth the extra effort, knowing they would be heard on the big screen.

So, excluding the movie, I can't really come up with a lot of show lines, it's been over a decade since I've seen it. I'm sure the Cons have more entertaining lines, though. I do remember Brawn threatening to give someone a nickel-plated knuckle sandwich.
