    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (3)

      • Loo-Kee's Hiding Place: behind some debris before the rebels walk by with the straw wagon.

      • Loo-Kee's Moral: It's never too late to make a change for the better.

      • Spirit is nowhere to be seen when Adora is turning to She-Ra but is shown changing to Swift Wind after Adora has became She-Ra. Even though after She-Ra dismounts from Swift Wind he is not
        shown with the Rebels for the rest of the episode.

    • QUOTES (3)

      • Hordak: Promises were meant to be broken.

      • Sundar: Hordak, those taxes are unreasonable.
        Mantenna: Yes, so is Hordak. (he laughs and Hordak sends him down the trap door.)
        Hordak: Who says I'm unreasonable?
        (Hordak laughs and so does Grizzlor and Catra.)
        Hordak: I notice that you're not laughing too, General. If you thought it
        was funnier...(puts finger almost on the trap door button)...I would of done the same thing to you.
        Sundar: Then why don't you try to?
        (Hordak thinks for a minute)
        Hordak: Never mind! Take the prisoner She-Ra to her cell. I'll decide
        her punishment later.
        Sundar: Yes Hordak!
        (Sundar takes She-Ra to the dungeon)

      • Hordak: I don't know if I can trust Sundar anymore...he's getting to be too honest if you know what I mean.
        Grizzlor: And he's scared you too.
        (Hordak prepares to push the trap door button.)
        Grizzlor: No wait, I'm sorry Great One...
        (Grizzlor goes down the trap door.)
