Other notes

Animation and/or technical glitches

  • In the rec room, Flint and Lady Jaye's couch briefly disappears.
  • When Mrs. Fairmont takes the baking sheet of cookies out of the oven, she uses her bare hands. That woman must have some really impressive callouses built up!
  • After Lady Jaye and Fairmont land on the beach, Lady Jaye's shirt turns to a dark green for a rather long shot, and then back to the normal tan in the following wide-angle shot.

Continuity errors

  • Charles Fairmont manages to blow up Cobra's Power Destroyer by throwing a grenade hundreds of feet into a small vent at the side of the machine -- a feat that would be nearly impossible for even the best MLB ballplayer.

Miscellaneous trivia

  • The transport vehicle at the beginning of the episode looks a lot like 1988's Rolling Thunder.
  • Two men in trenchcoats and dark glasses meet Fairmont at the airport - one is obviously Alpine, while the other (by process of elimination) is Airtight.
  • The Joe Team is a covert operations group - and Charles Fairmont's reaction to meeting them shows that there's a reason they stay out of the spotlight.

G.I. Joe references

  • While the Joes are watching tv, an announcer says a contestant has won an all-expenses-paid trip to the Florida Everglades - location of Zartan's headquarters.

Real-world references

  • Shipwreck is reading a copy of TV Grind.
    • Additionally, the cover of the magazine says "go see Cal" next to a picture of a cowboy, a reference to prolific used-car salesman Cal Worthington[1], whose ridiculous commercials featured a song with that phrase repeated many times in the chorus.
