  • Trivia

    • Goof:
      Jeff and the girls decide that with the kidnapper's van unattended, they can hide in it and be taken straight to the monastery. One problem; they had just seen the driver of the van knock himself out trying to climb a drain pipe while chasing Spike. They could have been in for a long wait.

    • Goof:
      As they climb up the rock outside the monastery, Woody's hand appears to grab Mr. T's crotch.

    • Goof:
      At the end of the episode, Sky says that "Mr. T would never lead the group into trouble". She can't have been with them long, as that's what he does every time.

    • Goof:
      After stopping the helicopter from flying away by tying it to the monastery bell tower, Mr. T pulled all 4 people out of it and dropped them to the ground. However, the helicopter continued to fly without a pilot instead of crashing to the ground, exploding and killing Mr. T.

    • Goof:
      The kidnapper with the eye-patch tells the captured kids to get on their feet, but they were all already stood up.

    • Goof:
      During their escape from the hotel room, Woody swung on the ceiling fan causing it to rotate slightly, but when Mr. T did it, it didn't move at all.

    • Goof:
      On the way into town there were at least 14 people on the bus, but only 8 actually take part in the story. So where were the other 6 people during all of this? All 14 are back on the bus as they leave though.

    • Goof:
      Why did Mr. T feel it was necessary to knock Miss Bisby's hotel room door down? He knew she was there, but apparently couldn't wait 5 seconds for her to open it. Now, without a door, those "awful kidnappers" she was afraid of will find it even easier to kidnap her should they return.

    • Goof:
      When Mr. T and Woody are knocking on Miss Bisby's door in the hotel, Dozer the dog had somehow managed to join them despite not having been present at all up until now.

    • Goof:
      As the kidnapper's van pulls up outside the cantina, the exposed brick work around the door of the building was a different shape than when the driver walks in seconds later.

    • Goof:
      As Mr. T got in the bus to chase the kidnapper's van, the bus revs up before he turned the key and started the engine.

    • Goof:
      When Woody sees the Gila monsters in the hotel room, he asks, "What are those?" It's hard to believe a boy his age couldn't identify the species. Also, how did the boss put them in the bag without getting himself bitten? Gila monsters are venomous, so handling them with ease would have been impossible.

  • Quotes

    • Mr. T: You ever do somethin' that really wasn't right because you thought you were doin' it for a good reason? Like tellin' a story you knew wasn't true. Well, this is the mystery about a member of our team who tried to pull a fast one. We were on our way to New Mexico. We were supposed to be goin' to a meet, but there was no meet to be found. Sounds confusin'? Then see if you can figure out the Mystery of the Forbidden Monastery.

    • Mr. T: When you are tempted to do somethin' wrong, even if the reasons are good, think twice 'cause you never know how things will turn out. You might be gettin' yourself and everybody else into a whole lot of trouble. Do what's right and you can't go wrong. Take it from me, Mr. T!

    • Robin: What the hairy heck is going on here?

    • Spike: I pity the fool who messes with me. I pity you!

    • Mr. T: Bisby! Bisby! Open up!
      Miss Bisby: Who is it?
      Mr. T: The Easter Bunny. Who'd you think it is?

    • Woody: I take it they got away.
      Mr. T: You lookin' to eat that steering wheel kid?

    • Woody: You were the one driving, how come you don't remember the way back to town?
      Mr. T: I was busy listening to you complain!
