Quotes:

(On Beast Wars Megatron's Rubber Duckie)
"It's such a wonderful visual isn't it. Megs in a tub squeezing his rubber ducky !! That's his escape. Locking the doors filling the tub...lotsa bubbles ....and his little friend."

(in Optimus Prime's voice)
"That's it, Megatron. I've had it! Bumblebee... SpongeBob... transform and roll out!"

(When requested upon doing an small bit of improv on what if Megatron, Sesshomaru and Treize were roomies in an apartment)
Megatron: All right, who has been putting dirty socks in the kitchen sink?
Sesshomaru: It was Jaken's fault!
Megatron: And where the hell is my rubber ducky?
Sesshomaru: Trieze, what are you doing in the bedroom?
Trieze: I'm spending time with Lady Une...
Megatron: Oh, "spending time with Lady Une" huh? *sigh*

(in Megatron's voice)
"Oh, rubber ducky, you're the one..."

(On Megatron and Frank Welker)
"All in all, I just tried to have fun with him and lets not forget, Frank Welker's a bit of a legend. Me...I've a lot of years to go."
