  • Trivia

    • The Moral of the episode was about Leadership. He-Man explains that to make a good leader you need intelligence, respect for others and an unselfish desire to do good.

    • The Rock People in this episode are not the same Rock People who later appeared in the She-Ra series.

    • When He-Man and Man-At-Arms realise the sword has been taken underground, Man-At-Arms states it has gone to 'the center of the Earth'! He seems to have forgotten what planet they're on...

  • Quotes

    • Teela: Hearing He-Man lecture Adam will be more fun than a party!
      Adam: Did someone say party? (Man-at-Arms' jaw drops) And what was that about He-Man?
      Man-at-Arms: (in shock) How...?!
      Teela: He-Man is going to let you know what's on his mind!
      Adam: I already know!
      Man-at-Arms: How...?!
      Teela: Don't tell me you and He-Man came face-to-face and I wasn't there to see it?!
      Adam: Okay, I won't tell you. (walks away)
      Man-at-Arms: HOW...?!
      Teela: (frustrated) I just don't understand.
      Man-at-Arms: That makes two of us!

    • He-Man: It's a good thing Orko got my sword back today, or Prince Adam might never have been seen again. The rock man who took my sword thought it made him a leader, but he was wrong. A sword or any other symbol doesn't make a person a good leader. What does is intelligence, respect for others and an unselfish desire to do good. People are proud of a leader with those qualities. So, if you develop them in yourself, you could become a good leader too. See you soon.

    • Prince Adam: Just think Cringer, if it weren't for Orko you'd have been BattleCat for the rest of your life

    • He-Man: I promise you,Teela, Adam will know how I feel about the whole thing.
      Teela: If you find him. He's never around when you are, anyway.
      Ram Man: Yeah! You know, I don't think I've ever seen the two of you together.
      Teela: It is strange how your paths seldom cross.
      He-Man: Powers just will it that way, I guess.
