After Starfire launches a city bus at Robin during their initial fight, he comments, "Hmm. Stronger than she looks." This is similar to what Starfire says of herself to Cinderblock in the first episode, "Divide and Conquer."
After Robin says "Come on, we've got a city to save," and the scene moves to the Gordanian ship, when you see some flashing green and red piping listen closely. There are two soundbytes of the Whale Probe from the fourth Star Trek movie "The Voyage Home."
After kissing Robin, you can see Starfire smiling a little while flying away.
Listen Closely: While the Titans are arguing, you can hear Starfire yelling in Tamaranian, and then Robin yelling, "I CAN'T UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU'RE SAYING!"
In past references, Starfire made it seem like her people were a peaceful race. But in this episode, when she stated the closest word her people have to nice is weak, she made it seem like all they understood was fighting. However in "Betrothed" The Tamaranians seemed to be a little of both.
Why are Robin's birderangs in this episode gray? They should be red and yellow.
Starfire's story of how she came to Earth does not equal the narrator's description at the beginning of "Transformation." From how the story is told, Starfire simply came to Earth in a spaceship, when in this episode, she crash-landed from space escaping alien creatures.
"He's green, half of me is made of metal, and she's from space. You fit in just fine."
When Cyborg says this to Raven, he is saying that all team members have something that makes them different, but he doesn't mention anything about Robin.
When Beast Boy says "besides, we all made a pretty good team," his mouth doesn't move.
What's the coincidence that Starfire landed at the same spot that Beast Boy and Robin were patrolling, Cyborg's neighborhood, and the place that Raven was wandering around in?
The way that Starfire arrives on Earth does not fit the way she described it in "Sisters." In that episode, she said she did not think she would ever fit in, which she clearly was not worried about in this episode.
When Starfire begins yelling at Robin for it being his fault that the Gordanians would destroy the city, the middle gray stripe on the part of the suit covering Starfire's stomach changes color from gray to black and then gray again.
Toward the end, Raven comments that Beast Boy is funny. She does it in the exact same way to Malchior in "Spellbound."
In the third act of the episode, Beast Boy's boots and gloves change from their alternate Doom Patrol design to their traditional series appearance.
When they show Starfire in her new clothes at the end of the episode, the bottom half of her legs are much too skinny.
Trogaar: It takes more than five juvenile heroes to...
Why did he say five heroes, when he was taking one of them (for whom he had no respect) into slavery?
Response: He probably said "five heroes" because he knew she had befriended them and is fighting with them for her freedom.
At the end of the episode, Raven laughs at Beast Boy's joke, and says, "You're kinda funny." In "Nevermore," Beast Boy says, "She's never laughed at any of my jokes." Could this have been the first time Raven's emotions were out of control?
When Robin frees Starfire from her shackles and they fall to the ground, Starfire's boots are the original purple color instead of black. They change back to black after that short clip.
Robin has a slightly mechanical voice in this episode.
How was Cyborg's chin armor silhouetted by a hood if his human flesh wasn't?
Raven's normal forcefields in previous episodes are just a solid black wall, so why would she create a soul-self wall here?
When the Gordanian ship fell out of the sky and into the water, it would cause massive flooding of the city, but it didn't.
How exactly did Starfire acquire the outfit that she normally wears in later episodes? Tamaran is the only planet where those suits are available and she didn't leave Earth in this episode.
Near the end of the episode, after Starfire asks the team if she is pretty. If you'll notice, all the Titans are extremely thin.
When Beast Boy is commenting the size of the Gordanian ship, his head looks a lot larger than his body.
Beast Boy, when asking about his mask, called Raven by name. How did he know her name, she never told him.
If Starfire had to learn English, then how does the rest of her race know?
Starfire: I thank you all for your bravery and help and I would like to ask to stay here, where the people are strange but also most kind. (Talking about Earth)
(Cyborg blasts Trogaar)
Cyborg: I'm only gonna say this once: Boo-yah!
Starfire: Nice... we do not have this word on my planet. Closest is "rutha." Weak.
Cyborg: Well, around here, "nice" means "nice." And if you want us to keep being nice, you better tell us why the lizard king took you prisoner.
Starfire: Not "prisoner." I am "prize." The Gordanians deliver me to the Citadel to be their servant.
Raven: The Citadel... they are...
Starfire: Not nice.
Robin: (After Starfire kicked a car at Robin) Hmh... stronger than she looks.
(Beast Boy tells a joke)
Raven: (Laughs) You know, you're kinda funny.
Beast Boy: You think I'm funny? Woohoo! Dude, I know some jokes!
Beast Boy: Ex-Doom Patrol member Beast Boy, sir. How can I help? Wowzers! You're Robin, aren't you, sir?
Robin: Well, you can start by not calling me sir.
Cyborg: (Takes hood off) There! Take a good long look. I had an accident, and now I'm a monster, all right? A cyborg.
Beast Boy: Cyborg? Cool! You're like Robot Man 2.0.
Cyborg: You're a weird, little dude, you know that?
Beast Boy: Ha ha. You called me dude.
Cyborg: Oh, man. My suit.
Beast Boy: So, you look way cooler without it.
Cyborg: Yeah, like I'm taking fashion advice from the guy in the goofy mask.
Beast Boy: Goofy! My mask is cool... isn't it? Raven?
(Cyborg & Raven shake their heads no)
Beast Boy: But what about my secret identity?
Raven: What secret identity? You're green.
(Raven dissolves her forcefield)
Beast Boy: Uhh... That dark energy stuff gives me the...
Beast Boy: Uh, I mean, it's cool!
Robin: Alright, we need some way to track ...
Raven: She's near.
(Everyone looks at her strangely)
Raven: (Embarassed) I can sense things.
Bank Robber: (To Robin) Hey, this isn't your town. Aren't you supposed to be with...
Robin: Just moved here. And from now on, I work alone.
Starfire: (To Robin, after the Gordanians announce the destruction of the city) All the fault is yours! I commanded you leave me alone, but you insisted upon the being nice!
Robin: My fault?! You blast me, you kiss me, but you never stop to mention that they have a gigantic particle weapon?!
Robin: I suppose I could team up... just this once.
Trogaar: The earth scum shall learn. It takes more than five juvenile heroes to defy the mighty Lord Trogaar.
Robin: We're not five heroes; we're one team.
Raven: You're going to track down the alien?
Robin: I have to find out if she's a threat.
Cyborg: (Muttering) More like find out if she'll give him another kiss.
Robin: Stand down.
Cyborg: What, do you think you're the boss or something?
Cyborg: Mind telling me why you're always by yourself?
Raven: You heard the kid. I don't exactly fit in.
Cyborg: He's green, half of me is made of metal, and she's from space. You fit in just fine.
Gordanian #1: And if this thing gets loose?
Gordanian #2: Then Zorg help us all.
Beast Boy: (To Robin) I think we made a pretty good impression. Crazy space girl is gone, the city is saved. Mission accomplished. Right, sir?
Robin: Seriously... stop calling me that.
Beast Boy: Roger.
Robin: I thought we might wanna keep in touch, so Cyborg and I designed these. (Gives them their communicators)
Cyborg: Made them out of my own circuits.
Robin: When there's trouble, you know who to call.
(All the Titans fight)
Raven: Quiet!!!! (Shyly) Hi.
Robin's voice is deeper.
According to Teen Titans Go #46: Starfire is slave to the Gordanians because Blackfire turned her over as a peace treaty. In exchange, Tamaran was safe from the invasion.
According to Teen Titans Go #45: The reason Cyborg was on his own was due to resentment towards his parents (They applied the cybernetic attachments towards him for his survival). The panel of the issue led up to Cyborg's first scene in the episode.
Raven is a pacifist. That's why she's acting so peaceful during this episode.
In the animated version, Robin just went solo from Batman, but in the old comics, he just went solo from the original Teen Titans team.
Starfire's hair is darker in this episode.
Robin originally didn't want to fight with a team, but wanted to be a solo hero.
Robotman is mentioned in this episode.
One can assume Starfire's outfit we are used to is a commoner's clothes.
This can be assumed because at first Starfire was wearing the same outfit as Blackfire, so it can be assumed as a "royal" outfit.
Since in "Betrothed" during the wedding, you see more "common" Tamarians, all wearing the same type of outfit as we often see Starfire wearing.
Therefore, it can be assumed Starfire was accepting to be more normal by wearing the commoners' clothes.
YTV airdate: June 5, 2006.
"Rutha," the Tamaranian word for "Weak," was utilized by Starfire in "Betrothed" in her first dialogue with Galfore, and it combined with what she said in "Go!" about he being the only one "nice" to her in Tamaran.
In the opening sequence of the episode, the monster that appears in the first cage to the right bears quite a resemblance to the Preserver, from the Superman: The Animated Series two-parter, "The Main Man."
The Gordanian's holographic projector is apparently the base for the Titans T.
In this episode, Robin hints he used to work with Batman.
This episode shows why Beast Boy uses "dude" a lot. Cyborg called him dude and Beast Boy was very excited.
Running Gag(s): 1) Robin getting annoyed when Beast Boy calls him "sir." 2) Beast Boy constantly saying the word "dude."
Everyone other than Starfire is wearing the uniform they would normally wear in regular episodes.
Cyborg's attitude towards Robin and Starfire kissing mirrors his attitude in "Stranded" when he made fun of the romantics of Robin and Starfire.
This is the only episode where Raven's forcefield takes the form of her soul self.
After Starfire kicked a car at Robin and he says, "Hmm... Stronger than she looks." This is what Starfire said to Cinderblock before she broke his grip on her in "Divide and Conquer."
The episode proves that the Titans met over a year ago.
According to comic lore, Tameranians are able to absorb language through touch. As for why she knows no common expressions, this is common for Tameranians. They only absorb the dictionary version of any language, without slang.
Raven was actually shy when she first met everyone. She wasn't mean to Beast Boy or anyone else in the matter.
Cyborg's attitude towards Robin, after Robin says, "Stand down!" is a possible reflection of the fight he had with Robin in "Divide and Conquer."
Beast Boy has a militaristic accent in this episode.
Beast Boy is the first person to see Cyborg is a cyborg. He also doesn't seem to mind that he is cybernetic; in fact, he thinks that it is awesome.
Beast Boy is actually scared of Raven's powers.
The second time the gang fights Starfire, it is in the movie store they fought Control Freak in "Fear Itself."
Starfire reveals that her name on Earth, Koriand'r, means Starfire, also verifying that "Starfire" isn't her hero identity.
How and when everyone met:
Robin - He appeared to fight a criminal in an alley.
Starfire - She crashed down to Earth and engaged Robin after escaping a Gordanian ship.
Raven - She appeared in a dark alley and appeared to stop the fighting with her aura powers.
Beast Boy - He appeared to help Robin after leaving the Doom Patrol.
Cyborg - He came out of nowhere to stop Starfire from slamming the bus on everyone.
Raven actually thinks Beast Boy is funny, although his joke-telling seems to scare her (as implied by her expression, which would also lead us to believe why she no longer thinks he's funny in previous episodes). The fact Beast Boy kept telling jokes because of Raven, gives more reason to believe he actually likes her.
Now we know why Blackfire said to Starfire "Earth has changed you."
This is the first time we've ever seen Starfire and Robin "kiss".
This episode is the first and possibly only prequel episode in the series.
This is the first time Cyborg uses "Boo-yah," but unlike what he said, it's not the last.
This episode relates to many things from the comic book series:
Starfire was to be delivered to the Citadel by the Gordainians as a bride, which is why she is wearing the crown she wore in episode "Betrothed."
Robin had just gone solo, shortly after which in the comics he became Nightwing.
Raven had just turned 18 and had visions of the evil she was supposed to commit and fled to Earth to try and change her grim destiny.
The Doom Patrol had just been slain and Beast Boy had nowhere to go.
Cyborg, or Victor Stone (who was an exceptional athlete of great potential) had been in an accident at STAR Labs and his father had used the technology he was working with to save Vic, but he was very upset with his appearance, considering himself "a freak."
Answers to all the questions in the summary:
Robin met Starfire in a fight.
Beast Boy tells jokes because of Raven.
Cyborg built the Sonic Cannon because Robin asked him to.
Raven first called them her friends during a battle.
Villain(s): The Gordanians.
Now we know why Beast Boy said to Mento in "Homecoming (2)" that he wasn't going to wear that stupid mask anymore.
Beast Boy apparently was enamored by Robin.
Beast Boy appears in his Doom Patrol outfit.
Starfire kisses Robin before the Teen Titans started.
A Locrix, Plasmus, and the alien that attacked the team in "Stranded" make cameos.
Zorg is apparently what the Gordanians call their God.
This is the only season 5 episode that David Slack wrote, due to "Teen Titans: Tokyo."
Starfire dresses in Blackfire's outfit, complete with the crown we saw in "Betrothed."
The Gordanians make their first and only appearance. However, they were mentioned in "Sisters."
This is the series' "origin episode," in which we find out about each Titan's past and how they met each other and formed the team.
Raven: If you knew who I am...
When Raven is asked whether she is going with the group, she replies that if they knew who she was, they wouldn't want her to be near them. This is a reference to the season 4 story arc.
Robin: (Ambushing the criminal by swinging through a swarm of bats)
Definite reference to Batman.
Cyborg: All right, I'm only gonna say this once: "Boo-yah."
This would become Cyborg's regular victory cry.
Starfire: (Rapidly devouring all the snacks)
Beast Boy: Uh... those taste better without the wrapper.
This is the first sign the other Titans saw of Starfire's strange appetites.
Raven: Team Formation
In the comic book series, originally, it was Raven who summoned the Titans together and a powerful, rich tycoon who funded all of their needs, including Titans Tower, which was built by Cyborg's father.
Robin: When there's trouble, you know who to call.
Reference to the theme song.
Robin: Sorry, I just went solo...
Referencing him and Batman's fallout.
Robin & Starfire: Kiss
As in the comics, this is how Star learned how to speak English, by kissing Robin. Also, this is how Tamaranians learn different languages.
Thug: Hey! This isn't your town! Aren't you supposed to be with...
Referencing to Robin working with his mentor Batman, in Gotham City.
Go: Japanese Meaning
The word "Go" means five in Japanese. There are 5 Titans, so the episode title showing each of their pasts makes sense.
Episode Title: Go!
The title "Go" is an allusion to Robin's battle cry, "Teen Titans, Go!"
