"All right, you overgrown iguanas - let’s move it!"
- a Crimson Guard (yelling at the dinosaurs while herding them into a room for brainwashing)
Smoke fills the cockpit of Flint’s Skystriker and he crashes into a
swamp. Scarlett and Gung Ho run to help their teammate. Flint shoots the
canopy of his plane and dives into the waters of the swamp before the Skystriker
explodes. Scarlett and Gung Ho arrive and watch the plane explode. Gung
Ho tells Scarlett that he thought Flint was going to escape and asks what
they should do next. With a great sadness in her voice, she tells Gung
Ho, “We carry on.” They turn to walk away, but a loud gasping noise is
heard behind them. They turn around and watch Flint climb out of the water
and ask, “Does anyone have an aspirin?”
The Joes immediately run for cover as three Crimson Guards on Cobra Ferrets arrive.
Deciding that no one could have survived the plane crash, the Cobra agents
leave and Flint, Scarlett and Gung Ho come to the realization that since
they do not have a radio to call an airstrike and rescue party, they will
have to attack Cobra's fortress by themselves.
Much to his own surprise, Dr. Massey successfully creates three dinosaurs.
Meanwhile, the Joes continue to march through the island's jungle and Flint
and Scarlett listen to Gung Ho complain about not being able to satisfy
some of his primal urges, such as food and sleep. However, Scarlett tries
to lighten the mood by joking that the place should remind Gung Ho of home.
"It does," replies Gung Ho. "Now you know why I left."
The dinosaurs are placed in a tank of water and after Cobra Commander
orders the tank to be drained, he allows Destro his “brief moment of glory”
by letting him activate a machine to brainwash the dinosaurs. Flint and
the other Joes march through a jungle and they find the Cobra base while
Gung Ho’s stomach growls loudly. “If that isn’t the luck of the Irish,”
states Scarlett. As Flint states that he is not Irish, growls from the
base are heard by the Joes. “Let’s just pretend it’s the wind,” Scarlett half-wishes.
As Cobra Commander watches several Crimson Guards use guns that shoot
electricity in order to direct the dinosaurs to the brainwashing pit, he
hears them shout, “All right, you overgrown iguanas - let’s move it!” Cobra
Commander turns to the Crimson Guard Commanders and tells them, “Your Crimson
Guards are either incredibly brave or incredibly stupid.” But the twins
explain to Cobra Commander that their guards are neither, but, rather,
they simply have an unusual idea of how to have a good time.
Once the minds of the creatures have been quieted by Destro’s brainwashing
machine, Destro informs Cobra Commander that the he can now use the cybernetic
control disk to order the dinosaurs. Placing the disk near his head, Cobra
Commander tells the reptiles to stifle themselves. The Crimson Guards lower
their guns and are surprised to see the dinosaurs become dead silent.
As the Joes approach the base, Flint hopes that Dr. Massey isn’t the
dinosaurs’ first dinner. But after Scarlett points out that the doctor
would only be an appetizer, Gung Ho grabs his stomach and asks the others
to please stop talking about food. The Joes trip a light sensor and Destro
tells Cobra Commander that the Joes have survived. To the dismay of Dr.
Massey, who tells Cobra Commander that he must feed the dinosaurs, Cobra
Commander orders the reptiles to be released and tells Dr. Massey: “Feed
them? That’s exactly what I plan to do!” And Cobra Commander laughs in
his insane, raspy voice.
The Joes watch the doors at the bottom of the Cobra base swing open
and they retreat as the dinosaurs walk out. Flint takes a shot at one of
the dinosaurs, but after his laser shots bounce off the creature, Flint
and Scarlett dive for cover as a tree is smashed down by an angry dinosaur.
Gung Ho tells the Joes that he will wrestle one of the smaller ones, which
looks like an alligator, but the Joe who wrestled gators in his youth asks
his teammates upon seeing the huge dinosaur, “Would you believe chameleons?”
A camera rises from the ground and Cobra Commander recognizes Gung Ho
and then orders the dinosaurs to devour him. Gung Ho rejoins his teammates
and Scarlett tells Flint, “I thought dinosaurs were supposed to be stupid.”
Flint replies, “They just don’t make them like they used to.” Scarlett
spots the camera and after Gung Ho picks the camera off with a shot from
his gun, Cobra Commander then tells the others that he will have to rely
on the dinosaurs’ instincts for food to destroy the Joes.
