Action adventure sci-fi prequel to the Transformers movie series, directed by Travis Knight. The story takes place in 1987 where Bumblebee finds refuge in a junkyard in a small Californian beach town. A teenage girl named Charlie Watson (Hailee Steinfeld), who is trying to find her place in the world, discovers Bumblebee, battle-scarred and broken. When Charlie revives him, she quickly learns this is no ordinary, yellow Volkswagen Beetle.
Charlie Watson: I’m Charlie Watson. I’m eighteen, today actually. Is the Beetle for sale?
Uncle Hank: It’s yours kid. Happy Birthday.

Charlie Watson: Oh, my God. What are you?
[after watching Bumblebee transform]
Charlie Watson: Who are you? Do you speak?
[Bumblebee shakes his head, Charlie puts up her hands]
Charlie Watson: I won’t hurt you.
[Bumblebee looks at her hands, then leans his face into her hands]
Charlie Watson: What’s your name?
Charlie Watson: Maybe music can help you say what you’re feeling. Try this.
[she enters a cassette tape into his music player, turns it on and we hear Rick Astley’s Never Gonna Give You Up, immediately Bumblebee ejects the tape and throws it across the room]

Memo: So you have no idea where he came from?
Charlie Watson: No idea.
Charlie Watson: Here’s the deal, people can be terrible about things they don’t understand. From now on the only person you can show yourself around is me.
[as Bumblebee starts to pat her head]
Charlie Watson: Oh, I’m good. Yeah, I’m good, thanks.
Shatter: [to Powell] There’s a war raging on our planet. If this criminal isn’t found, that war may find its way…
Charlie Watson: Is there anyone that can help you? Do you have a family?
[Bumblebee points to her]
Charlie Watson: Oh, me.
Agent Burns: I’ve seen firsthand what these things really are.
Optimus Prime: Bumblebee, there is only one way to end this war, you must protect earth and its people.
[to his men; referring to Bumblebee]
Agent Burns: Take it down!
Charlie Watson: Fight back, B!
Charlie Watson: You got people out there who need you. This is why you’re here, Bee.
Charlie Watson: This is how we stop them. You’ve got me, and I’m not going anywhere.
