"Ignore Cobra Commander! He’s a jerk!"
- Breaker (disrupting the subliminal messages heard by the citizens of Pleasant Cove)
Shipwreck tells Cutter to use the vertical thrusters and the WHALE rises
above the water and the torpedoes fly under the Joes’ hovercraft. The docks
are damaged by the torpedoes and the Joes destroy the Moray in their counter-attack.
As they shout and congratulate themselves, the WHALE is struck from behind
by a Cobra Water Moccasin, which has the Baroness in the gun turret and
Major Bludd in the driver’s seat.
But the Water Moccasin is also hit from behind and is destroyed by a
Cobra submarine, which avoids the angry Baroness and proceeds toward the
Joes. Shipwreck orders the missiles on the hovercraft to be armed, but
the hatch on the submarine pops open and Lady Jaye yells to her teammates
that she borrowed the sub from Cobra. “YO JOE!” shout the Joes, and they
dive underwater and head to Cobra base.
Bazooka parachutes to the television station transmitting the subliminal
messages and meets Breaker outside. Realizing that he forgot the darts,
Shipwreck receives docking instructions and after the Joes climb out
of the sub, Lady Jaye orders Tripwire to disarm the missile while the other
Joes and herself will rescue the townspeople. They run out and whisper
together: “Yo Joe.” Cobra Commander sees the Joes on a monitor and orders
the citizens of Pleasant Cove to defend the city at all costs while
on the monitors around the city. The Joes arrive at a crossroads and are
surrounded by the townspeople. Lady Jaye tells the Joes not to harm the
people. Shoving the people back from them, the Joes try to defend themselves.
Flint arrives and tries to choke Tripwire, but Tripwire breaks free and
runs off to disarm the missile. Barbecue tells Lady Jaye to follow Flint
and try to stop him.
As the Baroness and Zartan argue over who is to blame for the Joes appearing
in the city, Cobra Commander screams at them to be silent since he is watching
something very interesting: a brain-washed Flint attacking Lady Jaye. While
the Joes are inside an airlock, Cobra Commander orders Flint to close the
door to the city and open the sea door.
Inside the television station, Bazooka looks at the dart board, which
is on television and tells Breaker that he doesn’t understand what is going
on. And Breaker hopes that Cobra Commander won’t know either. Tripwire
examines the missile’s wiring system and realizes that if he touches the
missile it will launch immediately and that he has ten minutes to figure
out what to do. Cobra Commander watches the Joes attacked by the citizens
and before Flint turns the door’s handle, he grabs his head in pain. The
Pleasant Cove townspeople run off to the sub and climb aboard while Lady
Jaye hugs a confused Flint and shouts at him, “Flint! You’re back!”
Destro informs Cobra Commander that someone must be interfering with
the subliminal transmissions on the television, and while the picture of
Cobra Commander from Breaker’s dart board is on the airwaves, Cobra Commander
asks, “Who is that fool on TV?” Bazooka removes the dart board from screen
and sticks his tongue out at Cobra Commander while Breaker yells, “Ignore
Cobra Commander! He’s a jerk!” Enraged beyond measure, Cobra Commander
shoots the screen and then turns to face the Joes who enter the room armed
and Flint tells Cobra Commander that he is finished. But the rocket launches
and Cobra Commander declares himself the victor.
Tripwire runs into room and tells the Joes that he wasn’t able to deactivate
the rocket. Cobra Commander insults Tripwire by calling him incompetent
and also tells him that the world will now pay the price. However, Tripwire
replies, “Not really. I rerouted it. It’s heading straight out to space.”
Cobra Commander pushes a button and the Cobra elite descend on a platform
and escape while the explosions begin to tear the base apart. As water
floods the city, the Joes sprint back to the Cobra submarine and escape.
While the Cobra city begins to fall to pieces, Flint tells Cutter, Barbecue,
Shipwreck, Polly, Quick Kick and Lady Jaye that even though the sub is
small, he loves the speed.
With two AWE Strikers parked in front of his house, Ted asks Flint if
he thinks Cobra is gone for good, but Flint tells his cousin that it’s
not likely and adds that the only thing that is gone for good is his car
and his vacation. Lady Jaye then tells Flint the Colonel Sharpe has offered
Flint another two weeks of vacation, and Ted tells Flint that he’d love
to have Flint hang out for awhile. But Flint replies, “I want to get back
on duty - where I can get some peace and quiet.” And Ted, his wife, Flint and Lady Jaye burst out laughing.
