|Home Episode Summaries Season 1 Red Rocket's Glare
- Lady Jaye (before kicking a Cobra agent in the face)
One of the paintings on the wall rotates and a biker communicates via
the Tele-Viper’s communication network that RR-104 was met with resistance
from two individuals who counter-attacked and shouted the G.I.Joe battlecry.
Tomax and Xamot thump their desks simultaneously and tell the biker that
they will handle it. In another Red Rocket dinner, Mr. Quigg watches a
couple sign the papers to sell back the diner to Extensive Enterprises
for an amount less than the original purchase price and receives a signal
on his beeper. After calling Tomax and Xamot, he is ordered to terminate
negotiations and reacquire RR-104 property and is authorized to use extreme
Cobra ASPs and Stingers are placed on a ledge above the diner while
a G.I.Joe WHALE carries Cutter, Flint and Lady Jaye across the water and
onto the restaurant’s parking lot. As Mr. Quigg enters the diner, Aunt
Sarah cowers behind Roadblock as she explains to her nephew that Mr. Quigg
said that they must sell the Red Rocket Diner back to him. Roadblock growls
and after he tells his aunt that he will take care of the stiff while she
tends to the customers, Roadblock tosses the Cobra agent out the door.
Getting up from the ground, Mr. Quigg turns his thumb toward the
ground, signaling the destruction of the diner.
The ASPs open fire and destroy several cars. Cutter and the other Joes
run outside, catch sight of the Cobras and counter-attack with the WHALE.
With a swift kick to a Cobra agent’s face, Lady Jaye says, “Adios, sucker,”
and while the other Joes force the rest of Cobra agents to retreat with
the help of Ferrets and Stingers. Perplexed as to why Cobra would want
to muscle his aunt and uncle out of their hamburger stand, Roadblock and
the other Joes return to headquarters.
After researching the history of the Red Rocket Diner franchise, Breaker
explains that Extensive Enterprises originally sold the hamburger joints
to mostly retired couples and is now buying them back. Roadblock suggests
they pay a visit to the company, who have had dealings with Cobra in the
past. Flint agrees and accepts Snake Eyes’ offer to guard the last diner
which has not sold back to Extensive Enterprises, the diner owned by Roadblock
uncle and aunt.
Tomax and Xamot learn from Cobra Commander that the ultimatum will be
delivered at midnight and he ends the communication moments before the
Joes enter the room, led by a furious Roadblock who demands to know why
they enlisted Cobra to hassle his aunt and uncle. Tomax simply replies
with a “Tsk, tsk” and replies that they cannot be held accountable for
their client’s sometimes heavy-handed tactics and Xamot suggests that they
take the complaint to Cobra.
Flint suggests that they leave, and as Roadblock turns, he stops, growls
and stares at a squirming and sweating Mr. Quigg. As the Joes walk out
of the building, Flint tells Lady Jaye and Roadblock that they will return
after-hours. Piloting a Dragonfly to hover near the Extensive Enterprises
building, Lady Jaye shouts at Flint because she is not sure how he convinced
her to come along since she is afraid of heights. However, as she examines
the office and notices that there are no filing cabinets or desk drawers,
Tomax and Xamot enter the room and attack her.
