"Flint! I knew you'd miss me."
- Lady Jaye (receiving a phone call from Flint, who is on vacation)
As a paperboy yawns and leaves for his morning delivery, a man is narrowly
missed by a woman in a car as she backs out of the driveway. The man turns
and numbly tells Mrs. Harris, “Good morning.”
Breaker tosses a dart at his Cobra Commander dart board, strikes the
center of the board and shouts, “Bull's-eye!” Flint congratulates Breaker
on his shot and tells Lady Jaye and Footloose that he is ready to take
his vacation. Grabbing Flint’s arm, Lady Jaye walks with Flint to his car
and asks what his plans are for his days off. Flint explains that he is
driving to the coast to visit his cousin’s family, who are living in an
experimental housing project. “See ya later,” Flint says and Lady Jaye
leans off the two-door coupe and waves as Flint drives away.
Flint drives up to a house in Pleasant Cove and a weather man on the
television announces in a monotone voice that they will have a pleasant
day tomorrow followed by another pleasant night, then hands off the floor
to Bill, the anchor of the news show.
After ringing the doorbell, Flint is welcomed inside by an unemotional
cousin, Ted, whose family answers all of Flint’s friendly ‘catching up’
questions in the same monotone voice as the television news team. As the
two kids go of to bed, Ted and his wife then decide to go to sleep as well,
which shocks Flint since it is rather early.
As Ted and his wife walk away, they tell Flint simultaneously, “Early
to bed, early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy, and -”
“- boring,” Flint whispers.
Flint calls Lady Jaye and after she answers the phone, Flint tells her
that he is happy to hear her voice. “I knew you’d miss me,” she says happily.
Flint tells her that his cousin was so happy to see him that he went to
bed ten minutes after he arrived. “It helps to call,” Lady Jaye says. Flint
reluctantly agrees and says that he will see her soon.
Running down the street, Flint’s feet are grabbed by snakes, however,
he chops at the snakes with his hand and they disappear. Flint continues
to run and a very tall Cobra Commander tells Flint that he cannot escape
since he has the Joe in the palm of his hand. The buildings beside Flint
collapse and he yells in his bed for help before waking up and realizing
that he was just dreaming.
Looking out the window and noticing the townspeople are walking along
the sidewalk in the middle of the night, Flint rushes to the bedrooms in
the house and discovers that Ted and his family are gone.
Ducking behind a bush when catching sight of a Cobra agent, Flint follows
the town’s citizens to the dock and tries to signal Ted while behind a
crate. Unfortunately, a Cobra agent sees Flint and begins to fire at him.
Flint jumps over a wall and runs into the sheriff’s office, where three
deputies are playing cards and calling one another a “bloody cheat.”
Flint tells the sheriff that Cobra has kidnapped the townspeople and
asks if he can use the sheriff’s phone, but the sheriff tells his deputies
that they have a loon in their midst. Flint looks at the deputies and recognizes
them as Torch, Buzzer and Ripper, who are collectively known as the Dreadnoks,
and the sheriff rips off his mask and uniform to reveal himself as Zartan.
