The Joes stumble upon an oil platform being used by Cobra to try to salvage the anti-matter pod that went down with the USS Flagg and the Cobra helicarrier. (which were sunk in the episode "Computer Complications") It's learned that they are resting on a ledge, in range for divers to reach. So a team of Joes are sent to explore the wreckage, with Zartan and his siblings are on their tails. Both groups are captured by an insane Cobra cook named LaCar, and who's maintaining an underwater city in the wreckage. Cobra attacks the oil platform. Depth charges rock the wrecks from the ledge and knock some sense into LaCar. The Joes & Cobra trapped inside team up to use the anti-matter pod to raise the Flagg and the helicarrier.

Other notes

Animation and/or technical glitches

  • Hawk somehow gets into the pressure chamber in the end.

Continuity errors

  • After COBRA drops depth-charges on the Flagg, and Zarana gets trapped, Wet-Suit helps her from the rubble. She observes that she never thought a Joe would help her... apparently she must have hit her head and contracted amnesia, how else could she have forgotten all about her Joe love-interest Mainframe?
  • How is the Cobra Helicarrier supposed to lift an aircraft carrier that's at least 5 times larger than the helicarrier?
  • The Flagg sinks in "There's No Place Like Springfield (Part I)"/"There's No Place Like Springfield (Part II)", yet is somehow able to maintain buoyancy on its own once it reaches the surface.

Real-world references

  • B.A. LeCarre's name was taken from two sources: B.A. Baraccus, who is better known as Mr. T, from The A-Team (a television show parodied in "The Wrong Stuff") and John LeCarre, who wrote the novel The Spy Who Came in from the Cold, a title that is an appropriate description for the former Cobra cook since he was trapped in the depths of a cold sea.
  • When Roadblock first meets B.A. LeCarre, he asks, "Who in the Robinson Crusoe are you?" The name referenced by Roadblock is a character from Daniel Defoe's novel Robinson Crusoe, a story about an English sailor who was marooned on a desert island for nearly thirty years.
  • When first seeing the wreckage, Wet-Suit declares "Holy Lloyd Bridges," a reference to the actor and his role in the TV series Sea Hunt.
  • To silence the fighting between the Joes and Cobra, B.A. LeCarre fires a gun and then states: "Now, what we have here is a failure to communicate." The quote was from the film Cool Hand Luke.
