"Aww, I'm stuck in traffic!"
- Thunder (while reporting his position to Duke)
Realizing that the creature needs ships in order to feed itself, Duke
believes it will head toward New York. Wild Bill, who is standing on a
bridge, spots the creature and tells the others that it is moving like
lightning. After Duke is told by Breaker that the tanks are in position
and that the Mauler is stuck in traffic by Thunder, Duke decides to hunt
the creature on his own with a Skystriker.
Moments before the mechanical serpent attacks a ferry with hundreds
of passengers, Duke fires two missiles into the creature's mouth in attempt
to stop it, however, the serpent remains unharmed and Duke radios the MOBATs
and Maulers on the pier to fire at the serpent. But their shots are just
as ineffective as Duke's missiles.
Lasers shoot from the serpent's eyes and set fires in the city, but
with the streets empty, the Mauler is able to drive forward and take two
shots at the serpent before it is destroyed. Lady Jaye tells Professor
Braxton that they need to find a way to stop the serpent. Professor Braxton
creates an energy bleed and the serpent falls into the water and swims
toward the ships to replenish its energy supply. Alpine drives the WHALE
and tells Bazooka to grab his bazooka and to fire at the creature as soon
as he passes over the serpent's nose. Bazooka fires into the water and
chokes as the water splashes on him; and Alpine just shakes his head. Suddenly,
the serpent's head rises from the water and the WHALE is stuck on top of
the serpent's head.
The hovercraft and the Joes fall into the water and as soon as Alpine
resurfaces, he calls out for his friend. But he is nowhere to be found.
Under the water, Bazooka hangs onto a fin on the tail until he is above
the water. He fires two shots at the serpent's head and the monster turns
and tries to bite Bazooka, but he dives into the water and the serpent
bites its own tail. Caught in a ourourbic shape, the serpent damages itself
and sinks to the bottom of the harbor.
Tomax, Xamot, the Baroness and Destro agree that the time to strike
When asked where he has been by Alpine, Bazooka simply replies: "Fishin'."
Cobra Eels jump out of Firebats and swim down to the serpent with the aid
of rocket packs underwater. Lady Jaye removes a piece of debris on top
of Professor Braxton's leg and carries him out after learning that his
leg is broken, and they attempt to reach the red room. Cobra Commander
shoots a speaker that is repeating the words "Coffee Break" and walks out
of the red room with a Cobra agent. Entering a corridor, Cobra Commander,
who is carrying a gun, turns to the Cobra agent and says, "Uh, you first."
As a Cobra submarine drops cables down to the Eels, who attach the hooks
on the cables to the mouth of the serpent, Deep Six drops off three Joe
divers and knocks of the ring supporting the cables on the Cobra submarine
with two missiles.
Lady Jaye, Professor Braxton and Bucky find the ejection chamber and
Professor Braxton explains that it is the only way out. As soon as Lady
Jaye opens the door, Bucky growls and Cobra Commander invites the two into
the room at gunpoint. The Cobra agent shuts the door and when Lady Jaye
sets Dr. Braxton on the ground, he refuses to tell Cobra Commander how
to escape. A speaker above Cobra Commander asks repeatedly, "Will you work?"
Cobra's leader shoots the speaker and several enforcer elements appear
and attack not only Cobra Commander but Lady Jaye. Quick Kick kicks open
the door, which smashes the Cobra agent against the wall, and he using
shears to cut the enforcers that have ensnared Lady Jaye. Grabbing Professor
Braxton, Quick Kick follows Lady Jaye out of the room while Cobra Commander
is ejected from the serpent's head.
The Eels abandon the fight with the Joes and swim away to save their
commander. The Joes give a thumbs up to one another and return home. A
large wench raises the serpent's head out of the water and Quick Kick,
Lady Jaye and Professor Braxton climb out of the serpent to greet their
friends while Bucky jumps into the arms of a relieved and elated Jimmy.
Professor Braxton thanks Bazooka and tells him that he is brave lad.
Bazooka replies that the job was nothing, and then Alpine, who wants to
get a picture of the prize catch, tells everyone to look at the camera
and say "cheese dip." As Jimmy jumps into the air, everybody raises a hand
into the air and shouts: "YO JOE!"
