[The scene cuts to Megatron and Starscream]

Starscream: Of the Energon deposits we have located while you were away, Lord Megatron, this one is by far the most significant. The drones have been mining without a pause during your absence, and have amassed quite a stockpile. [to Decepticon Miner] You there! Fetch me a sample!

Megatron: Starscream! Now that I have returned I will issue the commands.

Starscream: I understand, Lord Megatron. Then as your humble servant, shall I ready the Space Bridge to bring forth the Decepticon army you have surely gathered during your three years in space?

Megatron: My army will come. But my time away has yielded a more intriguing means of materializing them. The solidified form of the matter the ancient texts referred to as the Blood of Unicron!

Starscream: Unicron the Destroyer. But it is said that his blood is the Anti-spark!

Megatron: Plucked from cosmic shores, gaze upon Dark Energon.

Starscream: Legend tells that it holds the power to revive the dead.

Megatron: We require only a cadaver to be certain. Are you willing to make the ultimate sacrifice?

Starscream: Hehehe, ahem, that may not be necessary. If I may, Lord Megatron?

[Decepticon Miners drag in Cliffjumper's corpse]

Starscream: Consider it a welcome-home present.
