The following was cut from MTMTE #22 (the documentary issue) for reasons of space - it would have taken up five pages. But as you can see, it was written up and ready to go. It was never seen or approved by John Barber or Hasbro, let alone published, so it's not canon (it's headcanon to me, though).
The lead-in to this scene would have been a to-camera interview with Drift in which he would have bemoaned Ratchet’s lack of a sense of humor. I’d originally written it – or something like it – for issue #13, but again it had to go when more important things took up page space.
1 / Drift walks into the medibay, where Ratchet is waiting with Rewind. Ratchet looks troubled and pensive. He’s leaning on one of the circuit slabs.
DRIFT: You wanted to see me.
DRIFT: Am I ill?
RATCHET: You’re fine. It’s me.
RATCHET: Close the door.
2 / Ratchet in the foreground, looking at the floor. Drift in the background, in front of the closed door, hand on the door activation pad, looking at Ratchet.
RATCHET: This is—
RATCHET: You’ll appreciate this is particularly difficult
for me to talk about, however…
RATCHET: You may be many things, but—until your
next massive personality shift—you’re not one to gloat.
3 / Drift stands opposite Ratchet, looking worried.
DRIFT: Okay, I’m worried now.
DRIFT: What is it? Is everything alright?
4 / Cut to Drift being interviewed.
DRIFT: I’d never seen him so worried.
DRIFT: And he was being nice—to me.
5 / Back to the medibay, as Panel 3. Ratchet is looking at his hands.
RATCHET: It’s my hands.
RATCHET: Pharma’s hands.
RATCHET: I mean the hands you, er, liberated from
RATCHET: The rogue doctor we met on Delphi. Who’s
6 / Cut to Ratchet being interviewed.
RATCHET: I don’t know why I added that bit.
