Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (4)

    • In two shots while Skeletor fights Hordak, we can see Skeletor's havoc staff but he doesn't use it. He just uses magic from his hands to battle Hordak. The havoc staff appears for nothing.

    • The brief role of Spikor at Snake Mountain was originally going to be assigned to Beast Man in the original script.

    • Skeletor's warrior Spikor, who was last seen in the 2nd season He-Man episode The Games, makes a brief cameo appearance in this episode.

    • Loo-Kee's Moral: If someone hurts your feelings, forgiveness is better than revenge.

  • QUOTES (9)

    • Imp: What's the matter with you cowards? Are you just gonna let Skeletor order us around like this? He's nothing compared to Hordak!
      Scorpia: You know, I just realized Hordak isn't here to protect Imp!
      Catra: No, he isn't, is he? I've waited just for this moment to be here!
      (All of Hordak's lackeys chase Imp out of the throne room)

    • Skeletor: (re: She-Ra) Blast that woman! She's worse than He-Man!

    • Skeletor: Behold my mystic cage of bone!
      Shadow Weaver: You expect that flimsy thing to hold Hordak?

    • (after capturing Hordak and Shadow Weaver)
      Skeletor: I can't remember when I've had a more pleasant day!

    • Skeletor: (to She-Ra) Just like He-Man; always meddling!

    • (Shadow Weaver has just proposed her plan to destroy Hordak to Skeletor)
      Spikor: You sure you can trust her?
      Skeletor: Who said I was going to?

    • Imp: Oh, do something awful to her, Great One!
      Shadow Weaver: Oh, you pig-faced little worm! I'll turn you into a sausage!
      Imp: Oh, save me! Save me, Great One! She's gonna zap me!
      Hordak: You dare threaten Imp in my presence?!
      Shadow Weaver: Oh, I was only--
      Hordak: Get out of my sight! I'll think of your punishment later.

    • Kowl: Do you think they know where we are?
      (lasers start firing at them)
      Bow: I think they know...

    • Madam Razz: Weezle-Wozzle-Woozle-Wize metal robots magnetize! (robots cling together)
      Broom: Cute. Very cute.
      Madam Razz:: I liked it!
