This is how Starscream talks to Soundwave goes in Partners.
[We see Starscream staring at his reflection in Soundwave's vizor]
Starscream: I have been a fool. Made mistakes. Monumental ones. I now realize that I was never destined to be a leader. Or even an equal partner. And I'm at peace with that. I have gained a clear understanding of my place in this universe. Of who I am. Of who I was always meant to be. Starscream. Second-in-command. Humble servant to Lord Megatron. Thank you for listening, Soundwave.
[He turns and leaves]
[Nightmare Moon appears]
Starscream: What is it?
Nightmare Moon: Two Elements remain, Commander Starscream.
Starscream: Well, by all means then, let's finish it. And you will finally have the revenge you want.
Nightmare Moon: But if all the Elements are reunited, we will no longer have Transformer bodies.
Starscream: Sister, do not question my command.
Nightmare Moon: [frowns as she leaves]
[She finds Tirek, the Dazzlings, Tempest Shadow, Queen Chrysalis, and King Sombra placing the Element of Kindness in a container]
Nightmare Moon: Villains of Equestria, I think our master has planned to betray us. The last two Elements of Harmony must not be found.
Adagio Dazzle: I would hate to lose my Transformer body.
Aria Blaze: Count me in.
Sonata Dusk: I'm with you.
Tempest Shadow: Let's do it.
Queen Chrysalis: Starscream won't know what hit him.
King Sombra: His time for giving orders is over.
[Starscream is being watched by Megatron and Airachnid]
Megatron: Is this true?
Airachnid: Starscream never mentioned it?
Megatron: If he's up to his old tricks, I shall grind him into powder.
Starscream: Lord Megatron, please excuse Airachnid's impertinence. Now, what was it that I allegedly failed to mention?
Megatron: The Harbinger. [shows a picture on the screen]
Starscream: What about it?
Airachnid: Eons ago, a Decepticon transport crash landed on this planet.
Starscream: Oh, please. Common knowledge. I scouted the crash site when we first arrived on Equestria.
Airachnid: Then I presume you recovered the experimental weapon prototype the Harbinger had been transporting.
Megatron: Where is the crash site?
Starscream: It was never logged into your ship's database.
Megatron: You failed to record the coordinates of a Decepticon transport?!
Starscream: An oversight, master. But I noted its exact location.
Megatron: Then you can lead Airachnid there so that she may retrieve the prototype for me.
Airachnid: My personal native guide -- how delightful.
