    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (5)

      • Wouldn't it have made more sense to announce the members of the school football team at the school rather than the Youth Center?

      • Mr. Kaplan announces a 'Bob' playing for the football team immedietly after the three Ranger teens yet no-one appears.

      • Billy becomes one of the starting line-up for Angel Grove High's football team!? Sure, he's been gradually beefed up over the season, and will get even more jockier next season, but in this episode, we still see his clumsy, flinching attitude when he's chased by Putties. It's absurd to think he'd have it easier, being the geek he is, than Tommy, in making the team.

      • When the Rangers' use the MegaDragonzord to blow up Rhinoblaster, a different monster (possibly Scorpina's pet worm) is shown being hit by it instead (you have to have quick eyes to see it). Also, Rhino Blaster falls and explodes when he's hit by the MegaDragonzord's finisher. But when Mutitus and Scorpina's worm were hit by it earier in the show, they were disintegrated in a bright light.

      • The Megazord steps out of the vortex, yet the Rangers were trapped inside with no access to anything, including their Zords.

    • QUOTES (4)

      • Rita Repulsa: I want a smashdown!
        Squatt: You mean 'touchdown'?
        Rita Repulsa: Whatever!

      • Skull: It says here that many footballers study "ballette".
        Ernie: He's right, Bulk. It makes 'em light on their feet.
        Bulk: Alright. But if I hear one "twinkletoes" remark, I'll cream you with my tutu.

      • (to Rhino-Blaster)
        Jason: If you think you're gonna mess up our town...
        Zack: Then you're way offside!
        Billy: So pack up your ball and go home!
        Trini: 'Cause we don't want you on our field!
        Kimberly: So punch yourself outta here!
        Jason: Or you'll face the...
        All: Power Rangers!

      • Tommy: Wait! I see now that I and the Dragonzord are no match for you.
        Rhinoblaster: Well now, I'm glad you've finally seen sense; Makes it easier on both of us!
        (blasts Tommy)
        Tommy: But please, won't you let me spend my last few moments with my friends?
        Rhinoblaster: Well, since i'm such a nice guy....NO!

    • NOTES (4)

      • Rhino-Blaster will return (and make his US footage debut) in next season's "Orchestral Maneuvers in the Park" (as an illusion), "Zedd's Monster Mash", "The Wedding (2)", among the patrons at Onyx in PRLG's "Heir to the Throne" and down in the Shadow World in PRLR's "The Fate of Lightspeed (2)".

      • Tommy pilots the Dragonzord from its internal cockpit for the second and final time in this episode (he'd previously done so in "The Green Candle (2)").

      • This is the last time the Mega-Dragonzord is used to destroy a monster.

      • When Tommy warns the Rhino-Blaster that it's his two-minute warning, it really does take two minutes from the time Tommy said that for the other Rangers to destroy the Rhino-Blaster with the Mega-Dragonzord.
