"How about after our break, Destro? We're union, you know?"
- a Crimson Guard (after Destro tells a group of Cobra agents that they are wasting company time)
Destro, who is unimpressed with the turn of events, suggests that using
the instincts of the dinosaurs may help them learn why they became extinct.
But Cobra Commander is not impressed with the play on words. Destro turns
to a group of Crimson Guards who are drinking coffee and donuts and tells
them that they should be looking for the Joes. However, they respond that
they will look after their coffee break. “We’re union, you know?” one adds.
“Move it!” Destro yells, and every Crimson Guard runs out of the room saying "Yessir" in fearful voices.
Flint leads the Joes to a cave and the Crimson Guards arrive on Cobra
Ferrets behind the dinosaurs who are pursuing the Joes. A small dinosaur
enters the cave and attacks Flint, who tries to crawl away as Gung Ho and
Scarlett shoot at the dinosaur, but Flint’s backpack is ripped away. Scarlett
realizes that the reptiles are only after the Joes’ foodpacks, so she pierces
her foodpack with an arrow, stands close to the opening of the cave and
shoots the foodpack toward the Crimson Guards.
One of the Cobra agents picks the arrow up and comments that the weapon
looks quite strange, then he looks up and sees all of the dinosaurs bearing
down on him.
The Crimson Guards retreat and after the dinosaurs destroy the Cobra
Ferrets and Stingers, Flint finds some dynamite in the debris and tells
the Joes, “This should come in real handy.” As Destro explains that no
mind control device can control the need for food, Cobra Commander threatens
to feed both Destro and Dr. Massey to the reptiles.
Flint orders Scarlett and Gung Ho to rescue Dr. Massey while he prepares
a welcome for Cobra with the explosives. Firing a hook with rope attached,
Scarlett and Gung Ho scale the side of the cliff, burst into the command
room by breaking through a window and kicks Cobra Commander to the ground.
Dr. Massey yells for Gung Ho to grab Cobra Commander’s command disk, but
as soon as he jumps on top of Cobra Commander and yells “Gimmie,” Scarlett
calls Gung Ho’s name with a reminding tone in her voice and the Joe looks
up and sees that he is surrounded.
Wishing to demonstrate Gung Ho’s stupidity, Cobra Commander challenges
Gung Ho to explain what he would have told the dinosaurs if he had the
control disk since the fortress is impregnable. Gung Ho rubs the back of
his neck and explains that they didn’t plan on bringing the dinosaurs to
the fortress but did plan on bringing the fortress to the dinosaurs. Flint’s
dynamite explodes and the foundation of the base is rocked. Scarlett knocks
her Crimson Guard captors aside, grabs the disk and orders the reptiles
to wreak havoc on the base. The disk is knocked out of her hand by the
Crimson Guards and Dr. Massey picks up the rolling disk and is told by
Flint, who climbs through the broken window, to tell the dinosaurs that
food is available in the base.
Cobra Commander tackles Dr. Massey and the disk flies out of the window
and out of the reach of everyone. Every Joe and Cobra stands horrified
as they realize that no one can control the reptiles.
The dinosaurs enter the base and begin to destroy everything in sight.
As a dinosaur enters the command room, Destro punches a button on each
of his metal gloves and rockets on each glove ignite and allow him to fly
away. But before he takes off, Tomax and Xamot ask before laughing, “Mind
if we hitch a ride.” They each grab a foot and fly away. The Joes, Dr.
Massey and Cobra Commander jump out of the window and tumble down the hill
to escape the sharp jaws of one of the dinosaurs.
At the bottom of the hill, Flint asks if everyone is okay, and after
learning that no one was hurt, he then orders Cobra Commander to come with
the Joes, unfortunately, Cobra’s leader has escaped. Scarlett wonders what
the Joes should do with the dinosaurs and Dr. Massey suggests that his
investors would probably like to open a museum, however, Flint interrupts
and tells Dr. Massey that the investors "can suck eggs" since the Joes
are leaving and Dr. Massey can stay. “Any questions?” Flint asks the doctor
menacingly. “Yeah,” Gung Ho says. “Where’s the grub?” Scarlett points to
the crates of food which are being devoured by the dinosaurs and tells
Gung Ho that he will have to share. However, Gung Ho’s own primal urges
for food urge him forward and he tells the dinosaurs: “Move over, boys!
