Memorable quotes

"Good evening. Welcome to 'Bomb Theater.'"

--Quick Kick greets his bomb-defusing class with his impression of Alfred Hitchcock, side-profile outline and all.

"He was a good man. No bomb expert, but a good man."

--Quick Kick, lamenting the apparent demise of Bazooka after he fails to deactivate the training bomb in time.

"Hamburgers? Yuck."

--Taeko's response to "Bazooka's" opinion of eating octopus parts.

"Ugh, i think it just grabbed my chopsticks."
"Wait until it gets to your stomach."

--Flint and Gung-Ho try the octopus during a Japanese meal.


Animation or technical errors

  • During the scenes of the Joes disarming the three bombs, Lady Jaye's bomb already has its blue wire cut when Bazooka says to cut the red wire first. It is suddenly intact when he gives the direction to cut the blue wire.

Continuity errors

  • Cobra plants a bomb at the statue of the Great Buddha by chaining it around the statue's neck? Not very inconspicuous.

Miscellaneous trivia

  • Breaker, Deep Six, and Wild Bill all appear on Flint's duty roster, but none make an appearance in this episode. However, at least one Dragonfly helicopter can be assumed to be flown by Wild Bill.
  • Bazooka is recognized as an explosives expert in this episode. This can be traced back to his filecard, which states that in addition to anti-armor and armor, Bazooka is an EOD specialist. His dimwitted portrayal in the cartoon is not reflected in his filecard, which describes him as "a decisive fast-thinker with all the instincts of a natural survivor."
  • The cups the Joes are drinking from in the end scene are obviously sake cups. Apparently the censors were not familiar with Japanese alcoholic beverages.
