Memorable quotes

"I know... I've tried!!!"

--Cobra Commander, insisting that Serpentor's dream of capturing Washington DC in one fell swoop is a pipe-dream.

Other notes

Animation and/or technical glitches

  • Alpine, Bazooka and Mainframe are simultaneously shown at both Cobra Island and G.I. Joe Headquarters.
  • Two Airtights shows up at Cobra Island.
  • Along with Alpine and Bazooka, Breaker and the two Airtights appear and disappear during the skirmish on Cobra Island.

Continuity errors

  • When General Hawk is showing the Joes the computer simulation of Serpentor, it's outfitted in his serpent outfit, even though up to that point the Joes have not yet seen what Seprentor looks like or what he's wearing.
  • Even though he's missing Sun Tzu's DNA, Serpentor still has, among others, Napoleon, Hannibal and Julius Caesar's military expertise; arguably none of them would have undertaken the Washington DC attack since, with no strategy or long-term plan for occupation, it is simply not a particularly well thought-out nor feasible plan.
  • Apparently none of Serpentor's Vipers bother to frisk the "President" or the other "politicians," since they walk right up to the Cobra emperor with guns in their briefcases. You'd think they would have learned their lesson after "The Revenge of Cobra!"

Miscellaneous trivia

  • Owing to the lack of Sun Tzu's DNA, Serpentor is impetuous and rash, leading him to attack and attempt to take Washington DC by force with a direct assault when such a maneuver has no reasonable chance of succeeding.
  • Zandar is voiced by Milt Jamin in this episode.
