Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen (2009) (part 2 of 6)
After brushing off his ridiculously hot girlfriend, Sam goes to chat with Bumblebee, and tells him that he can’t go with him to college, because at Princeton, freshmen aren’t allowed to have cars. Um, not exactly. Princeton freshmen can have cars, but they aren’t allowed to park them on campus, is all. But since this story dictates that kid and robot must somehow be parted, close enough!
Bumblebee responds by… playing music and clips from movies on his speakers. He does this because, as in the first movie, he can’t talk. He was actually given the ability to speak at the end of the first film, but clearly someone in charge said, “Hey, the kids love that Bumblebee talking in music! So let’s keep him doing that! Yeah! High five!”
So Sam basically tells Bumblebee to butt out of his life, and that he can take care of himself. Yes, that makes plenty of sense, given that he and his family were nearly slaughtered a few minutes ago.
