"That Harvey do Paul Bunyan proud."
- Wild Bill (after hearing Harvey explain to a crowd that G.I.Joe asked him for help)
Destro tries to convince Cobra Commander that the rocket fuel can be
used as a super-fertilizer which can be added to plants and substituted
for the ground forces. Cobra Commander tells Destro that he fears for the
arms dealer’s sanity and tells his Crimson Guards to take Destro to the
prison. After he has been escorted out of the room, Cobra Commander tosses
the pea out of a window, and it lands and begins to rapidly grow toward
the Cobra base.
Cobra Commander visits Destro, who is chained to a wall, but he is interrupted
as the vines from the pea pod break down the walls and cause rubble to knock out
the Crimson Guards. Cobra Commander is trapped in the grip of a vine and
Destro shoots the vine to free Cobra Commander after insulting him about
how even Cobra Commander's minuscule imagination should now be able to grasp the power of
the mutated plants. Destro tells Cobra Commander, who immediately talks
with the arms dealer in a chummy voice, that the plant seeds they need can be found in a greenhouse
in North Dakota and that a show of force should be made in Chicago.
Breaker radios Wild Bill and the other Joes that Chicago is under attack
by Cobra’s plants and that Cobra Commander has demanded the surrender of
the city or else he will turn the entire metropolis into a “weedbasket.”
Breaker also tells the Joes that Airtight is working on a formula to kill
As Shipwreck is sprayed with orange juice from an orange shot by Bazooka
and mocked by Polly for his lack of knowledges about vitamin C, Alpine
climbs the side of an Extensive Enterprises building, where the Crimson
Guard Commanders shoot various vegetables at the city. Alpine shoot Tomax
and Xamot’s cannon and the twins leap over the side of the building, climb
onto Cobra CLAWs and fly away. As Alpine rappels down the side of the building,
the twins attack him, but Alpine dodges the swipes of their wings and leaps
onto Xamot’s CLAW.
Tomax tries to shoot Alpine, so the Joe kicks Xamot off the CLAW, thanks
him for flying G.I.Joe Airlines and flies away while Tomax catches his
brother and retreats. Their CLAW smashes into a building and the twins
drop seeds for lettuce on the ground to soften their fall. Alpine turns the ground
and yells, “Imagine finding them in your salad - YECH!”
Wild Bill catches up with Destro and again tries to shoot his FANG down
with a Dragonfly. Wild Bill flies through celery stalks and follows Destro
around the Extensive Enterprises building.
Destro: “Don’t you good guys ever give up?”
Wild Bill: “No! That’s why we’re the good guys!”
Airtight lands his Sky Hawk near the Bazooka, Dusty, Shipwreck, Polly
and Barbecue and fires a tube of his weed killer at one of the vegetables,
which shrinks down to its normal size. The Joes retreat and Airtight suggests
that they crystallize the weed killer, seed the clouds and let the rain
help stop the mutant veggies. As they spread the crystals in the air, Barbecue
mentions that if their plan doesn’t work, he will definitely buy lots
of stock in a salad forks.
Wild Bill watches as Destro’s FANG is caught in the roots of a potato,
and as Destro retreats, Wild Bill announces while flying over a baseball
field that another Cobra game has been rained out since the Joes’ plan
Back at the county fair, Alpine, Airtight, Bazooka and Wild Bill listen
to Harvey explain to the crowd that G.I.Joe came to him for help. “That
Harvey do Paul Bunyan proud,” Wild Bill tells the other Joes. Airtight
catches sight of a poster with a piece of corn and tells the Joes that
he has an idea.
As the crowd asks if he was scared, Harvey replies that he doesn’t even
know the meaning of the words. Then, he turns around, sees the large poster
of the corn held by Airtight and he dives under a table, causing the Joes,
the crowd and even Harvey to laugh.
