Season 5 Episode 12

Titans Together

Aired Weekdays 4:30 PM Jan 14, 2006 on Cartoon Network



  • Trivia

    • Why didn't Kyd Wykkyd just teleport out? Although he could have escaped, since so little is known about him he could have used a power we have not seen yet to escape being frozen.

    • When Gnarrk first wields Kole, her arms change position while she is petrified. That shouldn't happen.

    • Tying in to the theme of the previous episode, the floor where the combat occurs has a chessboard pattern.

    • At the very beginning of the episode, it showed Starfire being taken hostage by Kitten and her big Moth, but then she appears free and unfrozen.

    • Look Hard: While Cinderblock/Jericho is carrying the other four Titans to the Brotherhood of Evil's base, his eyes can be seen glowing red for a split second, and then go back to green, showing he is under Jericho's control.

    • Notice that when a shot of all the villains is made, after they captured Beast Boy and 'his team', right before the other Titans arrive, Hotspot is standing among them, even though he's a hero and already frozen.

    • In the group shot at the very end of the episode, Mas Y Menos are nowhere to be found. We assume that they are still behind the machine, but why so? The villains are frozen and it would take merely a split second to run towards the others.

    • At one point, Lightning was drawn flying without his normal burst of lightning from the waist down. Is this an animation goof, or a new power?

    • Although it is hard to notice, Dr. Light is one of the villains fighting during the huge battle. So if he presumably was frozen with all the other villains, how was he able to be robbing a bank at the end of the episode?

    • Why weren't the Doom Patrol at the fight with the Brotherhood of Evil? These are their enemies and this was the perfect chance for them to defeat them for good. So where were they?

    • Wasn't it the Brotherhood of Evil's plan to freeze all the Titans? So, why did Mammoth leave Cyborg in that hole? Including others who were defeated, were the allies of the Brotherhood of Evil supposed to bring them back?

    • At the beginning of the episode, Jericho needed to make direct and absolute eye contact with a helpless victim to possess his/her body, a process that took much time. So, how was he taking control of so many villains so fast towards the middle of the episode?

    • In "Divide and Conquer," "Haunted," and various other occasions where the Titans have fought Cinderblock, he has been very enduring and capable of retaliating from an attack, namely from Starfire. In this episode, why would he have fallen unconscious so fast if he is so strong and the heroes who attacked him are clearly not as powerful as Starfire or the rest of the orginal team, who couldn't even take him down together?

    • In the first view of all the Titans, after they put the frozen villains up, Puppet King appears next to The Herald and Jericho.

    • How did the Titans know where Cinderblock was going to be when they went to find him?

    • Where did the Titans come from at the end to help out Beast Boy's team? At the beginning, several of them are clearly defeated - Starfire is overwhelmed by Kitten's bugs, Raven is helpless and tossed into Psimon's gateway, etc. Cyborg explains why Mammoth left him for dead, but what did the villains do with the other heroes they defeated like Raven and Starfire? Did Kitten just knock out Starfire with dozens of giant bugs, then leave her unconscious and go back to Paris?

    • Cheshire cut apart Speedy's bow in the previous episode, and the scene where Speedy is frozen confirms that he does not have it -- so why is he holding it when he is thawed out?

    • In earlier episodes, Madame Rouge was not able to get near Hotspot because she would melt. But here, she tackles him and is fine.

    • In this episode, Kole has red hair, when it should be pink, as it was in "Kole" and "Calling All Titans."

    • How did The Herald, Pantha, Jericho, and Mas know where the secret hidden base was for the Titans' one. They where never told and the communicators couldn't have said it, nor did they ever have the time to explain, so how did they find it?

    • Two questions regarding Red Star:

      1) How is he still alive if he blew up in outer space and couldn't have come down without dying on impact?

      2) He was fighting all-out against the villains, but his powers didn't overload. How is that possible?

    • At the end of the episode when all the villains are frozen and there is a shot of the good guys, you can see XL Terrestrial in the middle of them and the Puppet King.

    • When Beast Boy and his "team" are captured and it shows the villains surrounding him, when it shows Overload, the red disk that should be in his body isn't there.

    • Pantha knocked out Mammoth during the ambush-battle and he's clearly unconscious, but then in the main chamber The Herald takes him out again.

    • At the end of "Calling All Titans," it was shown that Aqualad was dumped into the pile of defeated Titans at the lair of the Brotherhood of Evil. However, at the beginning of this episode, it shows him and Tram fighting Trident and Plasmus.

  • Quotes

    • Cyborg: (Nostalgically) It's good to be back!
      (Kid Flash appears behind him, reflected in the window; Cyborg starts)
      Kid Flash: Cool pad. (Zooms to the other side of the room) Got any eats?
      (The Titans survey all the other honorary Titans in their Tower and their jaws drop in an extremely comical manner)

    • Starfire: The Dr. Light?
      Raven: (Dryly) Somehow, that's not surprising.

    • Herald: How do you even know your twin is here?
      (Mas talks frantically in Spanish and a drop of water slides from Herald's forehead)
      Pantha: (Translates to the clueless Herald) He says it's a twin thing.

    • Brain: Sometimes the only way to win is to clear the board completely. In only a moment, this entire base will be gone. I am afraid you have simply run out of options. Pity.

    • (Looking at the winning Titans as the villains start to weaken)
      Raven: Is it just me, or is this getting easier?
      Madame Rouge: Children, when will you learn? You cannot hope to defeat me…
      (Rest of her sentence is lost as Hotspot and Wildebeest tackle her to the ground)
      Raven: (Dryly, turning to face the three other Titans behind her) Like I said.

    • (After the Brain ejects from his body and it turns into a bomb)
      Cyborg: It's a fusion device, and a big one (To Starfire) I have no idea how to shut it down, we need a miracle.
      Starfire: No, we need a friend. (flies back into the battle and two minutes later brings back The Herald)
      The Herald: Any requests?
      Cyborg: Far away would be good.
      (The Herald opens a portal into space and Starfire & Cyborg throw it through the portal, and the bomb explodes in space)

    • Madame Rouge: Any final words?
      Beast Boy: (Sees the floor under her starting to crack) Yeah, I wouldn't stand there if I were you.

    • Cyborg: (As the huge battle royal begins) I don't even know where to start.
      Beast Boy: I do. And I won't stop until the Brain is mine.
      Cyborg: Then let's get started.

    • Beast Boy: I'll take the monkey, you take the jar.
      Robin: Sounds like a plan.

    • Robin: It's over, Brain.
      Beast Boy: Isn't that obvious? Duh.

    • Brain: Patiently we watched you all, waiting for our moment to strike. You forged your alliance. You trusted without bars, and finally when you thought your world was safe, it fell apart before your very eyes. You are merely pawns in a game and you have played your part perfectly. There is nowhere you can hide and there is nothing you can do to stop us. Each small victory brings us closer to an even greater prize - the elimination of an entire generation of heroes. And we owe it all to you, Robin. Your network has been crushed, your friends have no way to communicate or follow your commands. Together you may be formidable, but apart, you are lost, powers mine. You will fall, one by one. Who among you can possibly stop me now?

    • (While Más Y Menos are freezing bad guys, Kid Flash deposits three or four villains beneath the freezing nozzle, saluting the twins)
      Más Y Menos: Ooh! Más rapido!

    • Menos: (After Mas saved him) Necesito chocolate caliente. (Put hands together) Mas Y Menos, si podemos!

    • The Herald: (Punk Rocket attacked him with his guitar) I don't like your music. (Blows into his horn, creating a vortex, Mas pushes him in)

    • The Brain: Little, green one. You always try so hard, and always fail so completely. This time will be no exception.

    • Jericho: (As Cinderblock) I'm here. He may have bricks for brains, but I can see enough. The Brotherhood base is in Paris.

    • Beast Boy: (To Mas, Pantha, The Herald, & Jericho) Look, this may not be the perfect team, but it's all we've got. We're the Teen Titans now! If we work together, we can accomplish anything. Soo... exactly what can you guys do? The Herald: My horn opens rifts in space. Pantha: I am strong. Mas: Anticipero rapido, pero si mano... (Sighs) Jericho: (Holds up two fingers and points to his eyes) Beast Boy: Ook... this might be tougher than I thought.

    • Jinx: (Snaps her fingers; ground below Madame Rouge crumbles) Oops! Did I do that?

    • (As the Titans continue fighting)
      Madame Rouge: Is this part of the plan, leader?
      Brain: A minor annoyance.
      (All frozen Titans become unfrozen)
      Madame Rouge: Your annoyance is no longer minor. I do things my way now.

    • Robin: This isn't over!
      Brain: For you, it most certainly is.

    • Private HIVE: Cinderblock, they're about to freeze Robin, Hurry or you'll miss it.
      (Cinderblock, possessed by Jericho, follows with the group)
      Private HIVE: By the way, nice catch, sir.
      Cinderblock: (Carrying Beast Boy, Pantha, The Herald, & Mas) Thanks.
      Private HIVE: (Realizes that he doesn't talk) Since when have you been able to talk... sir?
      (Jericho jumps out of Cinderblock and into Private HIVE)
      Private HIVE: Hey, get out of me!
      LeBlanc: What is the meaning of this?
      (Titans go out of their fake knocked out mode)
      Pantha: It is called... an ambush.

    • Kid Flash: (Appears on-screen as the HIVE Five is running away) Now's the time when you're probably thinking, "I shouldn't have hooked up with these Brotherhood guys." Hate to say it, but told ya!
      (Cyborg and Control Freak come on screen, fighting)
      Kid Flash: Sorry I'm late, I had to pick up a friend.
      (Jinx walks on screen; when she reaches the end of the stairs, Kid Flash looks at her and grins; she also smiles at him; the Hive Five freak out)
      Gizmo: You're with him?! Traitor!
      Kid Flash: You probably have some catching up to do. (Runs off to join the fight)
      Jinx: Nothing personal. (Attacks HIVE Five)
      Cyborg: Now, that was unexpected.
      (Control Freak nods; Cyborg punches him)

    • Beast Boy: You know, for a top-secret emergency outpost, it's actually kind of... homey. (Light bulb sizzles and pops, leaving Beast Boy in the dark) Argh...

    • Robin: "Beast Boy?"
      (Beast Boy emerges from behind a frozen Monsieur Mallah, dusting off his hands; Robin tosses him the Brain; Beast Boy freezes it and points to it, chuckling)
      Beast Boy: "Dudes, check it out. (Tosses the Brain under the machine to be frozen) Brain freeze! Haha haha haha ha…"
      (All of the Titans groan)

    • Cyborg: Maybe we ought to show him who he's up against.
      Raven: He's totally gonna freak this time.
      (Camera pans back to show entire Titans assemblage)

    • Raven: (To Timmy, Teether, & Melvin, who have looks that mean they want to fight) Okay, fine. Just stay away from anyone older than you.

    • Raven: So... does anyone actually have a plan?
      Starfire: Yes: we kick the butt.
      Cyborg: Just like old times.
      Beast Boy: Except better.
      Robin: Let's finish this.

    • Private HIVE: (While being possessed by Jericho) Quit hitting myself! Uhh! Quit hitting myself! Uhh!

    • Cyborg: (Bursts in with Kole & Gnarrk) Lesson #1 - never throw me down a hole unless you make sure I stay there.
      Starfire: (Bursts in with Bumblebee & Red Star) The lesson 2 - we never give up.
      Raven: (Bursts in with Melvin, Timmy, Teether, & Bobby) Lesson 3 - your secret lair isn't very secret.
      Beast Boy: Titans, together!

  • Notes

    • This is also the second time Starfire and Raven combine their attacks like they did in the episode "Every Dog Has His Day".

    • The villain the I.N.S.T.I.G.A.T.O.R. makes his third appearance for the series; the first being a cameo in the episode "Deception," the second being in "Calling All Titans." I.N.S.T.I.G.A.T.O.R. stands for Integrated Neural System Techno-Intelligence Gyroscopic Atomic Tactical Organic Robot.

    • Although all of the villains shown in this episode are frozen, many of them (even Madame Rouge and Immortus) appear in the "Teen Titans Go" comic book series, unfrozen.

    • Teen Titans Go would continue Jinx's redemption. She is finally given a Titans Communicator in #43 (Robin gave that one to their resident mailman by mistake). She remains together with Kid Flash.

    • If Professor Chang had frozen Mas before the other Titans arrived, then the other heroes might not have been unfrozen and the Brotherhood of Evil could've won.

    • With the unfreezing of Wildebeast and Hotspot, and excluding Terra, almost all the teenage heroes in the world are now Honorary Titans. Similar to how almost every adult hero in the world is a member of the Justice League.

    • Notice that XL Terrestrial (who is a HIVE student and thus a villain) is standing among the Titans after the battle has ended. The Titan Jericho is not standing among the Titans either. It could be possible that he is possessing XL Terrestrial, but why is there a need to do so after the battle?

    • It's presumed that The Brain and Monsieur Mallah crash landed in their HQ (in this episode) from the episode "Homecoming (2)" after they blasted off in the rocket, because you can see the rocket making a hole in the roof when the two are trying to escape this episode. They probably just set up a hideout soon after they crashed in Paris.

    • The 30 Titans are:

      Robin, Cyborg, Starfire, Beast Boy, Raven, Bumblebee, Speedy, Aqualad, Mas, Menos, Tramm, Kole, Gnarrk, Thunder, Lightning, Jinx, Kid Flash, Red Star, Melvin, Timmy, Teether, Bobby, Kilowatt, Wildebeest, Pantha, Hot Spot, Jericho, Bushido, The Herald, and Argent.

    • Robin and Cyborg use the Sonic Boom move in this episode. It is the second time that they manage to properly execute it.

    • The plan of the Brotherhood of Evil was to cryogenically freeze the Teen Titans, as Professor Chang did in "X."

    • At its core, even though 30 Titans are in attendance, this is a Beast Boy episode.

    • The handcuffs Robin is shown in at the beginning of the episode are very similar to the ones on Starfire when she first comes to earth in "Go!."

    • Plasmus' human form is shown again.

    • This is the third time producer David Slack has appeared, the first two were in "Divide and Conquer" and "The End (1)."

    • The HIVE mistress from "Final Exam" gets a cameo in this episode.

    • Wintergreen gets a cameo appearance in this episode.

    • This is the second time a villain has completely wimped out without being actually attacked by the Titans. The first time was in "Birthmark" with Dr. Light, and LeBlanc also was a coward in this episode.

    • Whenever Jericho ends up in someone's body, they also take on his eyes.

    • This is the second time we see the button on Beast Boy's belt flash. The first time is in the episode "How Long is Forever?."

    • Apparently, Kid Flash was the only person aware of Jinx's reform. Both the HIVE Five and Cyborg were surprised when she started to attack the villains.

    • Raven defeats Plasmus with her soul-self attack again. This is the second time she's beaten him this way, the first was in "The End (1)."

    • For the first time, Cinderblock speaks while being possessed by Jericho.

    • This is the third appearance of LeBlanc.

    • The soles of Billy Numerous' shoes have division symbols imprinted in them.

    • The three Titans other than Beast Boy that escaped showed up with people that they were linked to in previous episodes. Raven had a previous episode where she transferred Timmy, Bobby, Melvin, & Teether to safety and rescued them from Monsieur Mallah. The Titans had fought Dr. Light alongside with Kole and Gnarrk. Red Star appeared in a Starfire episode and Bumblebee was asked if she was Starfire in an episode concerning Control Freak when the Titans East was substituting for the Titans.

    • Mas is still a competent fighter, even without Menos.

    • Wonder Girl (the girl on the compass next to Bumblebee, Lightning, and Menos) never came to help fight in the big battle.

    • Lauren Tom didn't do the voices of Gizmo & Jinx, as she normally would do.

    • When he was brought back from being stone by touching his twin, the first thing that Menos said was that he needed hot chocolate.

    • When Beast Boy is in the top secret emergency lair, the order that the Titans come in are: Mas, Pantha, The Herald, Jericho. The Herald aided Jericho in getting to the base.

    • Cyborg is the first of the original Titans to find out that Jinx has reformed.

    • Jinx is now a hero after the events in "Lightspeed."

    • Red Star now has the ability to fly.

    • The Brotherhood of Evil and its allies are frozen.

    • The Brotherhood of Evil's base was located in Paris.

    • Dr. Light is robbing a bank at the end of the episode and all THIRTY Titans, including Jinx and the imaginary bear Bobby, are in the mix.

    • Dr. Light is the only villain who was not captured being that he wasn't even invited to the Brotherhood.

    • Red Star lived after the ending events of "Snowblind."

    • Raven yet again exhibits her motherly side by telling the kids to fight but stay away from anyone older than them.

    • Among the villains seen assisting the Brotherhood of Evil in this episode (some continuing from last episode) are Cinderblock, Professor Chang and his scientists, André LeBlanc, Adonis, Mammoth, Private HIVE, Plasmus, Kardiak, Wintergreen, HIVE Headmistress, Mad Mod, Overload, Fang, Cheshire, Killer Moth, The Amazing Mumbo, Control Freak, Steamroller, Psimon, Phobia, Ding Dong Daddy, Master of Games, Billy Numerous, See-More, Trident, Gizmo, I.N.S.T.I.G.A.T.O.R., Katarou, Johnny Rancid, Angel, Kyd Wykyyd, Puppet King, Mother Mae-Eye, Malchior, XL Terrestrial, Atlas, Kitten, and an unknown HIVE Student.

    • Everyone returns to Titans Tower at the end.

    • Raven - comes with Timmy, Bobby, Melvin, & Teether
      Cyborg - comes with Kole and Gnarrk
      Starfire - comes with Red Star and Bumblebee

    • Jinx and Kid Flash return to help out -- Jinx did reform.

    • During battle, the actiony version of the theme song is played.

    • There is a villain dressed in red and blue in this episode who has previously made a cameo appearance at the HIVE.

    • Jericho finally talks in Cinderblock and Private HIVE.

    • "Never throw me down a hole unless you make sure I stay there." - What Mammoth did to stop Cyborg is exactly the same thing that Terra did to defeat him in "Aftershock (1)."

    • In the comics, Jericho can only take over someone and speak if they're unconscious, but Cinderblock clearly isn't. Presumably they made Jericho's power simpler for the audience's benefit.

    • This is the first time that one of the twins (Mas Y Menos) actually has a solo role in the show.

    • Jericho's powers are actually seen in this episode - he can inhabit people's bodies by making eye contact.

    • The Teen Titans have a "top secret underground outpost" in a forest/jungle area.

    • We actually get to see Speedy being frozen.

    • The Brotherhood of Evil intends to defeat the Titans and turn them into statues. They had frozen Hotspot and Wildebeest in the beginning.

    • Professor Chang makes a cameo appearance in this episode.

    • For the first time, Beast Boy leads his own team consisting of Más, Pantha, Herald, and Jericho.

    • Not only is this the last appearence of Titans East in season 5, this is their last appearance, period.

  • Allusions

    • Kid Stuff
      Herald came from a dimension, which looks almost exactly the same like the one where Mordred banished all the adults in the Justice League Unlimited episode: "Kid Stuff."

    • Jinx: Oops, did I do that?
      At one point when Jinx (along with Hotspot, Wildebeest and others) is battling Madame Rouge, she utters the line, "Oops, did I do that?" A line made famous by the character Steve Urkel on Family Matters.

    • Control Freak: Light Saber
      When Jericho is inhabiting Control Freak during the big battle, he is wielding the quadruple light-saber Control Freak used in "For Real."

    • Beast Boy: Team
      Owing to Beast Boy's history with the Doom Patrol and the Brotherhood of Evil, Beast Boy's leading a team of extras against the Brotherhood is in keeping with what happened in the New Teen Titans comics when Beast Boy (in his other codename Changeling) went against the Brotherhood to rescue the Titans.

    • Titans Together: Titans, Go!
      In the comics, Robin would call out "Titans Together," instead of "Titans, Go" as he does on the show. The title of this episode is possibly a reference to that.
