Prowl has been studying the photo he took of himself lately. He is displeased by his insignia. It is breaking. And with every party, with every drink, with every encounter with Kitty, it gets more and more shredded. Perhaps it is her claws… Hmm.. Something must be done to fix this.
He phones Ratchet. Ratchet is busy with the other Autobots. So… he makes do with Dr. Penguin, the famous Plastic Surgeon from Rome. Dr. Penguin is confident that he can fix Prowl’s issue. Prowl is not confident… but as Ratchet is booked for the next year, and as the Insignia seems to get worse by the minute, he has no other options.
He consults with Kitty. Kitty feels horrible about shredding the insignia during their late night sex parties. She offers to pay for the surgery but wants to meet Dr. Penguin first. Dr. Penguin is pleased to meet Kitty… he shows them several options available for insignia replacement. Kitty can barely contain her excitement. Prowl tells her to shut up and makes her wait in the waiting room. Insignia choosing is serious Robot business. Stupid kitties cannot understand such complexities.
Dr. Penguin posts the choices on the wall. Prowl studies them. Doesn’t feel that he can make a decision from this angle, he needs to study them closer.
Dr. Penguin moves the choices to the floor. Prowl gets on his knees and studies them closely. Decides which will do. Shows the Dr. what he wants. The Dr. gets the surgery station ready and calls for a gurney to take Prowl to the operating room.
Prowl is prepped for surgery. Kitty sits quietly beside him… she is worried. She sniffles. She wonders where she will find another Autobot that will drag her around if Prowl does not survive. Prowl tells Kitty to shut the hell up. Kitty loves being yelled at. Even when he’s like this, she twitches with anticipation and grabs her cords in excitement.
Prowl is sedated and taken into surgery. Dr. Penguin begins the operation.
The old insignia is carefully removed with tweezers. Dr. Penguin is careful to remove all pieces of the old insignia.
The new insignia is fitted carefully onto Prowl’s chest. The incision is closed, screws are tightened. Prowl is recharged and awakens immediately.
He asks the human how he looks. The human assures him that he has never looked better. Well, perhaps when he was new, but this is as good as it gets. Prowl is satisfied and seeks out Dr. Penguin.
He shakes Dr. Penguin’s hand. Dr. Penguin has done him a great service. He tells the Dr. that he will put in a good word for him with Ratchet. Dr. Penguin is pleased and says that he will call the Pope and make sure that the Autobots will eventually be canonized.
Prowl seeks out Kitty who has been waiting impatiently in the waiting room, biting her cords, pacing back and forth. She is overjoyed to see Prowl, and is even more excited that the insignia looks so pretty. There will me much more insignia to tear apart now.
Pleased that Kitty is satisfied, Prowl grabs her by the cords again and leaves the surgical center. Kitty squeals with anticipation as he drags her out the door.
