  • Episode Description
  • The Turtles and Casey once again return to the old farm to get away from all of the chaos and destruction of the Big Apple. However, nothing is peaceful when April and Casey's mother do not get along. Also, several locals who survived the Triceraton invasion have hijacked nuclear weapons and intend to "solve" the problem. Hopefully Don and Raph can stop these maniacs from their own destruction.

    • Don: Guys, I want to bring back at least one apple that's still... Mikey: (fires an arrow at the apple Don's holding.) Don: intact.

    • Raph: This is where you get off! Don: Since when do I do the crazy stuff Raph?! That's your department!

    Notes (6)

    • Prologue Narrator: Donatello

    • The H.A.T.E. leader mentions an alien being chased by a mob down Avenger Alley in New York City. Back in the episode, Touch and Go, Raphael was chased by a mob down an alley he names as "Avenger Alley." Most likely, Raph was the so-called "alien" being referenced here.

    • It is interesting to note that Casey's mother wasn't at all surprised to learn of Leo and Splinter. She acted like seeing a giant rat and turtle are an everyday thing. But I guess since the Triceraton invasion, people are willing to believe anything.

    • Casey's mother made April go through her "test," even though she knew they weren't engaged. She must have realized they have feelings for each other, since she was observant enough to notice Leo and Splinter.

    • Casey's mother revealed that his first name is Arnold.

    Trivia (5)

    • When Don and Raph were gassed by the H.A.T.E. leader, the trailer doors are open, but when he jumps in the truck and leaves (through the wall) the door is closed.

    • Toward the end of the episode when Don and Raph are walking down the hill after the explosion, their belts disappear and after that the lower line across their plastron that is usually hidden by the belts disappears too.

    • Even though Leo appears in this episode, he isn't part of the action, nor does he do any fighting.

    • Don's bo staff both disappears and reappears throughout this episode. He is shown to not have it at the beginning of the episode, yet he is later seen fighting with it. Also, when Don leans out of the doon buggy, we can see that he does not have his staff. The shadow he projects on to the truck however, clearly shows that he has it with him even though he doesn't have it after he climbs into the truck.

    • The man wielding the rocket launcher isn't too bright. He was trying to kill the Turtles from a close range with the rockets, which would have killed him also.

    Allusions (5)

    • After Raph pulls one of the H.A.T.E. guys off the cliff, the next one that he knocks off the gatling gun looks like Sub-Zero from Mortal Kombat.

    • A Christmas Story Michelangelo: Hey, pal, didn't your mom tell about these things [guns]? You'll put your eye out, kid. This "eye out" line about guns is extremely similar to the excuse Ralphie receives frequently in the 1983 movie A Christmas Story about why he shouldn't get a rifle for Christmas: "You'll shoot your eye out, kid!"

    • E.T Michelangelo: E.T. phone home. E.T. says this exact line in E.T.-The Extraterrestrial. This is probably the most famous line spoken by an alien.

    • Evel Knievel Michelangelo refers to himself as "Turtle Kanertle, an obvious parody of Evel Knievel, the famous motorcyclist stunt superstar.

    • William Tell Donatello: Forget it, William Tell... Rapheal and Michaelangelo were using a bows and arrows to hit apples stacked on top of Donatello's head. Their actions as well as Donatello's line are references to the legendary hero William Tell.
