Prowl's condescending (and belittling) speech to Lockdown's intelligence is inspired from Marge's speech to Homer in the movie, during the Pig Silo scene. Which, naturally, peeves Lockdown off because, well, he isn't dumb. Any clumsy slip-up he may have endured with his teammate in combat is simply the result of someone who has never worked with a group before. He's always been a lone wolf; this is new to him and it drives him crazy.
Also, this is the only Prowl drinking scene you'll see. I promised you it, I gave it to you. It's likely just not what you guys expected. >: D
