Badges?

Badges?!

WE DON'T NEED NO STINKIN' BADGES!!

And of course, we need a 'I am the true leader of the Deceptions!' line, just for good measure.

My personal favorite: "Do I have a second on that?" before nearly everybody went "Aye!"

To tell you the truth, though: It's not about what Starscream says, but what he does. He OWNED in the movie despite how unattractive he looks. My hope is that he continues to OWN in the sequal.

Besides, the "best quote award" belongs to Bonecrusher's "In That Case, I Say It Is Survival Of The Fittest." B-)

"OW my foot!" is of course, a classic, and any of the phrases from his many mottos would work :]

I'm sure all the best ones from the animated movie have all been done, so here's some from the series:

In SOS Dinobots, after some laser blasts from Ironhide miss him by miles: "You're too slow, rusty-pants!"

A great exchange from Heavy Metal War - Megatron: "Soon, Scrapper’s invention will give me the power to defeat the Autobots once and for all!” To which Starscream replies, “Forgive me, but I believe your boast sounds vaguely familiar.”

He's at it again in Autobot Spike - Megatron: “Interesting! Perhaps I can turn the situation to my advantage, and use this Autobot Spike to destroy the other Autobots... What supreme irony! Turning their friend into their foe!” To which Starscream replies, “You’ve made such boasts before, Megatron!”

In Prime Problem, Starscream memorably calls the Autobot leader "Floptimus Prime!" In The Insecticon Syndrome, he then calls Bombshell a "Rust-encrusted cockroach!"

And finally, in The Golden Lagoon - Megatron: "Show no mercy!" Starscream: "Do we ever?"

This is the challenge: G1 Starscream's "best" lines were goofy, at his "dumbest", or just plain silliest.

The other lines play off of Megatron, which while fitting, don't mesh with what I want from TF2. I mean, context is what a lot of these lines need to work. And not just that, but I DON'T want to see Megatron in TF2. It's still too early to bring him back, I think.

It's hard to find the perfect "Starscream" line for the new Starscream.

I fell defending my leader Galvatron against the most powerful enemy of all, the giant Transformer Unicron.

I'm surprised no one's said this one yet.

"I will rule the universe, even if I am the only one left in the universe."
"Time makes all things possible. I can wait."

Megatron: DECEPTICONS!
Starscream: Let me guess, WE RETREAT!
(Megatron flies off without a second thought)

liked that so much I got a shirt printed that says
"The best laid plans of mice and Megatron" (a quote from myself)followed by the con logo and "Let me guess, WE RETREAT!"

I think you are onto something here. Starscream did seem to be at his best playing off of Megatron. I half expect an Allspark changed Megatron named Galvatron to make the appearance for Starscream to play off of.

Does anyone else remember this: "I am the new leader of the Decepticons"? He's said it many times in various phrasings. How appropriate it would be for the Movie sequel since Megatron took a dirt nap.

I always liked:

Starscream: "It was Astrotrain and Blitzwing! They tricked me!!!"
Megatron: "Starscream, you're either a liar or an idiot."
Starscream: "I'm an idiot! I'm an idiot!"

Also:

Starscream: "It looks like some kind of... rust!"
Megatron: "Impossible! We are rust-proof!"
Starscream: "Perhaps you're made of shoddy materials, Megatron!"
Megatron: "That's ABSURD!"

However, I'd prefer Movie Starscream continue to be a serious villain like he is in IDW's series and TF:Animated, than have him be comic relief like in G1.

Edit: Good ones for the movie might be:

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

"I have a code of conduct — victory at all costs!"

"Power leads to victory and power is what I shall obtain."

"Power is its own justification."

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

"Time makes all things possible. I can wait."

Megatron: [charging into battle] "SHOW NO MERCY!"
Starscream: [sarcastically] "Did we ever?"

I don't remember anything in particular, but as I recall, some of Starscream's conversations with Doctor Archeville were quite strong.

These guys need to learn how to write their own scripts. :?

Just give the Decepticons some actual scenes with dialogue in the next movie, rather than have everyone else talk about how evil they are without letting us find out for ourselves through their characters.
