  • Trivia

    • It is revealed that Izzy is adopted, through Izzy's childhood flashbacks.

    • This is the first episode where anyone actually calls the Digivice a Digivice. But, this is an error, as the kids haven't been told the name yet (It's only a dub error).

  • Quotes

    • Andromon: That Black Gear reprogrammed my system somehow. I'm normally a non-violent Digimon.
      Tai: You could have fooled us!
      Sora: No kidding!

    • Joe: Looks like some kind of factory.
      Matt: Let's hope they can manufacture a way for us to get home!

    • (While Tai picks up the crane and traps Andromon)
      Joe: Could you please stop taunting the deranged android?

    • Sora: I'm sure if we're friendly to him, he'll be friendly to us.
      (Andromon stands up, grabbing Sora by the leg and hanging her upside-down in the process)
      Sora: Forget what I said about him being friendly!

    • Joe: (When Andromon starts to open his eyes) I saw this movie, where this robot came to life and ate everyone.

    • Mimi: (When the lights come back on) They didn't pay their power bill. Is that it?
      Matt: You know, you have no imagination.

    • Tentomon: [while being electrocuted] I'm dancing like i've never danced before!
