    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (1)

      • Goof: When wearing his cloth mask, Cobra Commander is usually seen with brown eyes. But at the end of his televised transmission that the Joes are viewing, his eyes are blue.

    • QUOTES (13)

      • (After Destro announces that he's going to use Flint and the other survivors for his guinea pigs)
        Destro: I shall use them to test another natural wonder of which I have developed. (Dropping a twig in Cobra Commander's hand)
        Cobra Commander: Brillant as usual, Destro. Why I'm sure that Flint and the World will quake with terror at the site of a dried up sprig of creeper vine.
        Zartan: It looks like a bit like poison ivy.
        Cobra Commander: (Drops the sprig) Poison Ivy.

      • (After Cobra Commander makes his demands)
        Scarlett: We've got to do something. (Walking away from the monitor)
        Sparks: You're right, Scarlett. The only question is what?
        Scarlett: I don't know...yet. But I do know, Duke and Flint would want us to keep punching. No matter what.

      • (Cobra Commander makes an announcement)
        Cobra Commander: Citizens of the world. On behalf of the great Cobra Empire. I address you now.
        Gung-Ho: I address you, too sweetheart. (Wiggling his hand on his nose)
        Lady Jaye: (To Sparks) See if you can put a tracer on his speech.
        Clutch: Yeah, all you need is a garbage detector.

      • (After Duke and Snake Eyes fail to escape)
        Destro: First, I must harness the laser core to my Weather Dominator. To the water vapor controling mechanisms of the Hydro Master and the electro magnetic energizing capabilities of the Ion Corrilator. I now add the unlimited power of the laser core. It's strength will enable me to dominate the weather any place on Earth.

      • (As Cobra Commander, the Baroness, Zartan and the Dreadnoks weave in and out of the swamp lands)
        Cobra Commander: Be careful, Zartan. I am too valuable to end up spattered all over some Cyprus tree. (Branch smacks him up the side of his head)
        Zartan: Great escapes require great risks, Cobra Commander. Hang on.

      • (As the Dreadnoks cut open the metal door)
        Zartan: Ahh, sunlight. (Skin changes gray) I hate the sunlight. It robs me of my camouflage ability.

      • (After Dr. Cansalles has suggest that Cobra Commander be up for review for parole)
        Cobra Commander: You wouldn't want to deprive me of my constitutional rights. Would you, Muscle head. (Laughs)
        Gung-Ho: How would you like me to bench press your face?

      • Zartan: Welcome to my domain, Col. Sharp. While G.I. Joe and Cobra battle for the land. I, Zartan, rule the swamp.

      • Torch: Ah, (Referring to Col. Sharp and his driver) look at the lovely monkey's we bagged.
        Buzzer: Don't look like monkey's to me, Torch. (Cutting the rope with his chainsaw which causes the cage to fall into the river) They look like trout just before you pop 'em in the flying pan and eat 'em.
        Ripper: (Laughs) Trout that's a good one that is Buzzer.

      • Roadblock: Duke and Snake Eyes just you wait. We're going to chop Cobra up for bait.

      • (After Gung-Ho catches Cobra Commander)
        Gung-Ho: You were saying something about fighting fearlessly rust breath.
        Cobra Commander: You may have hurt me temporarily (Pointing to the cargo net that has Duke and Snake Eyes) but I also have you. (Laughs)

      • Duke: What's the situation on your side, Flint?
        Flint: So far so good. But things could still get hairy between here and Head Quarters. Remember a cobra is a snake and snake is sneak spelled sideways.

      • Duke: No sign of Cobra. How does it look from ground level, Scarlett?
        Scarlett: Clear here, Duke. But I don't believe it'll stay that way.
        Duke: Me neither. The laser core for our cannon is just the kind of hardware to make our friendly neighborhood reptiles hiss with envy.
