unmasked and revealed as Amber, which shocks Quick Kick.
In an interrogation chamber, Amber tells the Joes that all she wanted
to do was join the Joes and asks Quick Kick for support. However, Quick
Kick tells Duke in his best John Wayne impression, “If you ask me, pilgrim,
I say we oughtta string ‘er up.” Duke declares the crisis is at an end
and orders Quick Kick to give Amber the nickel tour.
They visit the Skystriker hanger and Quick Kick explains that the security
codes for all of the planes are changed every night. A tech notes that
the code for the evening is 10-6-9. “That should cut down on uninvited
guest,” Quick Kick says. “Like me, Quick Kick?!” asks Amber. And as she
turns to run, Quick Kick follows her while Alice, the Skystriker tech,
tells Lady Jaye that her plane will soon be ready upgraded with the new
As Scarlett, Bazooka, Breaker, Alpine, Roadblock, Dusty, Spirit and
Flint listen to Duke explain that Gung Ho’s last transmission was received

Escorting her away, Quick Kick tells her that she is now down to the penny
Destro flies his FANG toward Snake Island and contacts Cobra Commander,
who explains that he has arrived just in time to witness his latest stroke
of genius. After Cobra Commander signs off, Destro wonders, “What is that
madman is up to now?”
Doc informs Duke that the long-range laser guidance system passed all
the tests and Duke picks up the device and notes with an impressed voice
that the system could allow someone to shoot a gnat off the rings of Saturn.
Amber and Quick Kick enter the room and Quick Kick apologizes for showing
up since he thought the Joes would be in the map room, and the two leave
to travel back to Amber’s sorority. Lady Jaye tells Duke with a scratchy
voice that she doesn’t trust Amber. Concerned for his teammate health,
Duke insists that she pay Doc a visit, so she turns around and sets an
apppointment with Doc for tomorrow.
The security code for the night, 10-6-9, is transmitted to Cobra’s base
on Snake Island, and as soon Cobra Commander orders the Rattlers to attack
the Joes’ base, Destro enters the room and reminds Cobra Commander that
their aggreement states that he is to supply Cobra with all of their weaponary.
Cobra Commander explains that he has not viloate the agreeement and adds
that he will show Destro and the entire world his plan starting tomorrow.
Rattlers drop bombs onto the Joes’ Skystrikers and all but Lady Jaye’s
are destroyed. She flies into the air and attacks the Cobra planes, but

Dusty, Cover Girl, Blowtorch, Airborn, Quick Kick, Spirit, Shipwreck,
Mutt, Flash, Snake Eyes, Ace and Roadblock listen to Duke explain that
Deep Six is currently looking for Lady Jaye and that the Joes had a visitor
who may have been a Cobra spy. Turning to Quick Kick, Duke tells him that
he wants Amber brought in. Sighing heavily, Quick Kick tells Duke: “Like
Mae West said, ‘When women go wrong, men go right after them.’” Scarlett
turns to Duke and asks him if Quick Kick even cares, but Duke cuts her
off and explains that Quick Kick does care; he simply just isn’t the type
to show his feelings.
Driving a Silver Mirage up to a sorority house, Quick Kick enters the
building and causing half-dressed women to scream and run to their rooms
while Sandy walks up to Quick Kick and asks if Quick Kick has a brother
with shoulders like his. “No, a sister,” he replies. Led to Amber’s room,
Sandy tells Quick Kick that it is embarrasing to have a neat roommate and
then plays Amber’s answering machine tape for Quick Kick since she sometimes
leaves messages. The two learn that Amber feels like the Joes believe her
to be a Cobra spy, therefore, she has gone to Snake Island to destroy it
on her own. “Wish me luck,” she says happily before adding sadly, “I’m
going to need it.” Quick Kick is shocked and runs from the room.
