"I saved a customer."
- Destro (replying to Cobra Commander's statement that he had been saved from the Joes)
Cobra troops take defensive positions at Cobra’s base while the Firebat
lands. Cobra Commander and Destro walk with several Crimson Guardsmen to
the Firebat, and as Shipwreck awakens and finds himself surrounded by Cobra
agents, he immediately stands up and declares that they are all his prisoners,
however, the sailor is knocked out from behind and dragged away to a chamber
for the sole purpose of entertaining the sick pleasures of Cobra Commander.
Inside the commissary at Miracle Studio, the Joes grumble over their
losses and Marty storms into the room wondering out loud if their next
move is to burn down the studio. Cover Girl snaps her fingers and shouts,
“That’s it!” “What?” Mutt asks. “We are going to burn down the studio?”
Cover Girl explains that burning down the studio isn’t her plan but, rather,
they could use some Hollywood magic to get Shipwreck back.
Cobra Commander listens to Shipwreck ask if he expects him to talk.
However, Cobra’s leader states that he only expects him to fry. As Cobra
agents shoot at Shiprwreck, who stands on a beam over molten lead and tries
to avoid the lasers, a Crimson Guard reports that the Joes have sent a
message on Cobra’s ultra-secret transmission frequency. Cover Girl explains
that Torch, who is strapped to a table and is about to be crushed with
a large plate covered with spikes, is about to give up the location of
Cobra headquarters and demands that Cobra return Shipwreck.
As the transmission ends, Cover Girl hands Recondo a towel so he can
wipe the make-up off. As Zartan and his Dreadnoks rescue Torch and return
back to the motel, the rescued Dreadnok tells Zartan that the “female Joe”
studied his face. Zartan tries to contact Cobra Commander, however, a Tele-Viper
tells Zartan that Cobra Commander has ordered all radio frequencies to
Landsburg complains that he is two weeks behind schedule and that he
has not yet captured a believable battle scene on film. A large number
of Cobra Firebats appear in the sky and Cobra Commander lands on the ground
in front of the Joes. With a gun next to Shipwreck, who is tightly bound
by rope and blindfolded, Cobra Commander demands the return of Torch, but
as the conversation between the two armies becomes tense, Shipwreck decides
to take matters into his own hands by knocking Cobra Commander to the ground.
Destro believes Cobra has fallen into a trap and orders the Cobra forces
to attack. The Joes scatter and rescue Shipwreck while Junkyard attacks
Cobra Commander, who demands that his army scatter the bones of the Joes
at his feet.
As the battle rages, Landsburg does not know what is happening but he
wants it all on film, so the drivers race around the studio and try to
capture the battle. Shipwreck asks Cover Girl how they are going to get
out alive and she points to the sky. G.I.Joe Skystrikers attack the Cobra
Firebats and soon the Joes are fighting Cobra’s forces on the ground. Cobra
Commander’s Firebat is destroyed by a wrecked Firebat that falls from the
Screaming for Destro to get him out of the field of battle, Destro tells
Cobra Commander to follow his signal. At a saloon Cobra Commander keeps
Cover Girl at bay until Shipwreck shoves a burning wagon into the saloon,
however, Cobra Commander sneaks out the back and climbs into Destro’s Firebat.
“You saved me!” says Cobra Commander.
“I saved a customer,” replies Destro.
With the studio in ruins, Marty yells at Shipwreck and Cover Girl, however,
Cover Girl explains that the situation is worse than he believes because
Cobra Commander escaped. Landsberg drives up and tells them that he has
captured all of the battle on film; as a result, the Joes are exonerated.
While at the premiere of The G.I.Joe Story, the Joes, who are
all in tuxedoes, watch Landsburg drive up and explain to a group of reporters
that the film wouldn’t have been possible without the help of two very
special people, his mom and dad. Infuriated that he was not mentioned,
Shipwreck tries to rush forward, however, the other Joes hold him back
and listen to him yell, “Let me at him! I’ll murderlize the bum!”
