Trent pretty much told them to get lost, but Mikaela then dumped Trent.
Realizing he had his one shot, Sam abandoned Miles and offered to give Mikaela a ride home.
The lead robot, after inquiring about Sam's identity, introduced himself as Optimus Prime, leader of the Autobots, autonomous robotic lifeforms from a planet known as Cybertron.
Prime introduced Jazz, his first lieutenant; Ironhide, his weapons expert; and Ratchet, their medical officer (who claimed that Sam's pheromone level indicated that he wanted to mate with Mikaela, embarrassing both teens); and identified the Camaro as Bumblebee, Sam's appointed guardian.
After throwing Sam onto a nearby vehicle, the cop car demanded the location of Sam's e Bay items, but Sam fled and ran into Mikaela.
The Camaro arrived and took them to a power plant, where the two cars fought it out while Sam was chased by a spastic abomination who pantsed him.
Mikaela was hesitant, but Sam convinced her to get in. She agreed, then admitted to Sam that it was a smooth move on his part.
While driving, Sam had shotgun, but Mikaela refused to sit in the driver's seat. Mikaela then asked if the robot was so advanced, then why did he turn into a piece of crap Camaro? As Sam lamented how four thousand dollars had driven off, the car returned as a 2009 Camaro.
After giving her a ride home, Mikaela asked Sam if he thought she was shallow.Mikaela was able to cut off its head, which Sam punted.Sam and Mikaela approached the Camaro, who could only speak through his radio and offered them a ride.Optimus explained their mission to locate the All Spark, the betrayal of Megatron and the Decepticons, and how Archibald Witwicky's glasses played a vital role in finding the All Spark.Going to his house, Sam frantically searched for the glasses, but the Autobots were somewhat impatient and totally wrecked his dad's backyard.
