This is how Thunderwing tries to recruit Twilight and Starlight to join him goes in
Thunderwing: Wake up, little Alicorn and Unicorn. Wake up. No, you're not dead yet. Just paralyzed... ...temporarily.
Twilight Sparkle: Thunderwing!
Starlight Glimmer: Why are you here?
[Thunderwing lands and furls his wings]
Thunderwing: You're amazing ponies, Twilight and Starlight. You two and I are not so different.
Twilight Sparkle: We're not like you. You're a follower of Unicron.
Thunderwing: Well, to each their own. I chose my path, you two chose the way of the hero. And they found you amusing for a while, the Ponies of Equestria. But the one thing they love more than a hero is to see a hero fail, fall, die trying. In spite of everything you've done for them, eventually they will hate you. Why bother?
Twilight Sparkle: Because it's right.
Thunderwing: Here's the real truth. There are lots of different species in Equestria. And those teeming masses exist for the sole purpose of lifting the few exceptional species onto their shoulders. You, me, we're exceptional. I could squash you two like bugs right now. But I'm offering you two a choice. Join me. Imagine what we could accomplish together. What we could create. Or we could destroy. Cause the deaths of countless innocents in selfish battle again and again and again until we're both dead. Is that what you both want? [unfurls his wings] Think about it.
[Thunderwing then flies away]
Thunderwing: You're both patheticly predictable. Like a moth to the flame. What about my generous proposal? Are you two in or are you out?
Twilight Sparkle: It's you who's out, Thunderwing. Out of your mind.
Thunderwing: Wrong answers!
[Thunderwing, Twilight, and Starlight fight, during the fight Twilight gets a cut on her left front hoof.]
[Twilight blasts Thunderwing and disappears with Starlight]
Thunderwing: No one says no to me!
