"Would you settle for a cold flood?"
- Shipwreck (in response to Lady Jaye's wish for a hot bath after seeing an approaching large wave of water)
However, the “cheap Cobra junk” gun, runs out of ammo and Footloose
tries to escape. As he runs from the room, Storm Shadow cuts a stone pillar
with Excalibur and the stones fall onto Footloose. While Cobra Commander
screams for the Joe to be taken away, Destro plots to acquire the invincible
sword for himself before Cobra Commander discovers its power.
As Quick Kick and Spirit approach Cobra’s castle, Duke and Lady Jaye
examine the dam near village and discover that it is about to break due
to the excessive rain. As Duke orders Lady Jaye to evacuate the village
and then save the radar system, Beemish arrives and tells the Joes that
evacuating the village will not work, and the only way to save the villagers
is by returning the sword to the Lady of the Lake. Duke considers himself
going crazy, but he is beginning to believe Beemish.
Mutt and Junkyard visit Flint while he is on guard duty, however, their
conversation and coffee break is interrupted by Cobra. While evacuating
the townspeople, a little girl tugs on Duke’s pancho and tells him that
she can’t leave without her cat, Queen Anne, and Duke promises to find
her pet. Lady Jaye reports that Cobra has forced the Joes to retreat from
the Tactical Battle Platform and are holding the moors at the moment.
Cobra attacks the Joes and the village and Destro, who is catching a
cold due to the “blasted English weather,” apologizes to his friend, Storm
Shadow, for firing a rocket at him, however, Destro explains that he must
have the sword. But just as he is about to fire the rocket at Storm Shadow,
Destro sneezes and the rocket is fired toward the town.
As per Duke’s orders, Mutt and Junkyard survey the village for any citizens
and along the way they find a cat in a tree. Destro’s missile strikes the
dam and as soon as Mutt tucks the cat in his rain coat, he and his best
friend are caught in the debris of a house that explodes due to Destro’s
Wild Bill arrives and with several other Dragonfly the Joes rescue their
teammates thanks to a few well-placed missiles fired at the Cobra Water
Moccasins. The Baroness orders Cobra to retreat and as Major Bludd leaves,
he fires a rocket that strikes the dam and the water flows down to flood
the village and drown the unconscious Mutt and Junkyard.
Mutt awakens to the meows of the cat and after pushing the timbers off
of himself and Junkyard, he picks up the cat and asks why she is meowing
like crazy. Mutt then turns toward a tidal wave and tells Junkyard to brace
himself. And soon the two are swept away in the force of the tidal wave.
Since Cobra has retreated, the Joes march back to the village in the
rain and Lady Jaye says, “Man, what I would give for a nice hot tub right
about now.” Shipwreck points to the sky and asks her, “Would you settle
for a cold flood?” The tidal wave from the shattered dam smoothers the
Joes, and after Mutt hangs ten and Junkyard hangs twenty on pieces of debris,
Mutt pumps his fist in the air and shouts, “Man! What a ride!”
