“- Quintessa: Optimus, it is time you knew the truth. The place you call Earth has another name: Unicron.
- Optimus Prime: Earth... Unicron? Cybertron's ancient enemy?

“- Megatron: We were brothers once!
- Optimus Prime: Once.”
“- Quintessa: There is a way to heal your world. My power of creation, the staff, was stolen from me by my twelve Guardian Knights. They betrayed me, and hid it on Earth... gave it to your precious humans. The staff is the only way to bring life back to Cybertron. You are going to find it for me. Do you seek redemption, Prime? Do you?

“At the heart of every legend, there is truth: a few brave souls unite to save the world. We can be heroes in our own lives, every one of us, if we only have the courage to try. Our fates were always intertwined, but now our worlds are joined as one. We need to repair our planets, work together, if we wish to survive.

“- Galloway: If we ultimately conclude that our national security is best served by denying you further asylum on our planet, will you leave peacefully?
- Optimus Prime: Freedom is your right. If you make that request, we will honour it. But before your President decides, please ask him this: what if we leave, and you're wrong?”
“Fate rarely calls upon us at a moment of our choosing.”
“Our races, united by a history long forgotten and a future we shall face together. I am Optimus Prime, and I send this message so that our past will always be remembered. For in those memories, we live on.”
“- Optimus Prime: Ultra Magnus, it is to you, old friend, I shall pass the Matrix of Leadership as it was passed to me.
- Ultra Magnus: But Prime, I'm... I'm just a soldier. I... I'm not worthy.
- Optimus Prime: Nor was I. But one day, an Autobot shall rise from our ranks, and use the power of the Matrix to light our darkest hour.”
“Not much of a house. Just right for not much of a donkey.”
“- Optimus Prime: One shall stand, one shall fall.
- Megatron: Why throw away your life so recklessly?
- Optimus Prime: That's a question you should ask yourself, Megatron.”
