  • I going to assume you saw the episode and not worry about summarizing.

    Wow. Just wow. Amazing episode. When April and Casey died, I was in shock. I also felt sorry for Klunk (he's so cute), and it was sweet how Mikey tried to save him. I thought, "There's no way. You kill off two major characters and a kitty like that!" I was relieved when I found out this was a dream. Although, it was pretty obvious it wasn't real when all those bad guys came up, I mean c'mon, all those bad guy who hated each other in the past aren't just gonna come together out of nowhere. Although the worst fear hallucination plot has been used before, I still enjoy this episode!moreless
  • a really great episode

    This episode is one of my favorites. It first starts out looking a dream episode (which would have been really stupid because dream episodes are really stupid) but later on you find out it's a fight inside the minds of each of the turtles and splinter. the foot mystics return and try to destroy the turtles and splinter from the inside out, but splinter being a sensei, figures out its a dream and then he and the turtles fight and truimp against them. the turtles learn the impotance of meditation and so did I! it was a really great episode because of the suspense and also knowing that there is more to meditation then crossing your legs and humming.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (1)

    • In the opening scene before the theme song, you can see Donnie sitting in the front seat next to April, but in the episode, Leo's the one sitting in the front seat.

  • QUOTES (5)

    • Bishop: Wherever you go, there will be a responsible citizen waiting to rat you out; pardon the pun.

    • Don: I should've changed the signatures on the shellcells; I should've known they were traceable.
      Raph: Nobody thinks it's your fault, Donny.
      Don: But I led Bishop right to the lair.
      Splinter: It was not Bishop who found us at the lair Donatello. I do not know what it is, but there has been a great evil in our presence all evening.
      Don: But Master, who would even have that kind of power.
      Familiar Voice: Come, Donatello, surely you know there is only one person who could bring this level of vengeance down upon you.
      Leo: It can't be.
      Raph: There ain't no way.
      Familiar Voice: (turns out to be Shredder) Did you honestly think my loyal servants would abandon me? You and the accursed Utroms thought you could send me to my doom. Instead, you have sealed yours!
      Mikey: Just how many times are we supposed to destroy this guy?!

    • Don (in the opening scene) Okay, pop quiz. If a dozen of Agent Bishop's commandos are pursuing at 90 miles an hour from points A, B, and C, what are the odds that you'll survive the next five minutes?!

    • Mikey: I wonder if you can combine burgers and nachos into one tasty treat. Mmm....burchos.
      Master Splinter: (sternly) Michaelangelo!

    • Splinter: And your behavior is most troubling of all Leonardo. There is a new hardness to you, one that strays from the true path of Ninjitsu.
      Leonardo: I do what I have to to protect this family.
      Splinter: As do I (angrily) Back to meditation.

  • NOTES (7)


    • The plot of this episode is similar to the New Batman Adventures episode "Over The Edge" where Batgirl is hit with fright dust and has a vision of her worst fear, much how this episode is a vision of the turtles worst fears.

      In the illusion, Batgirl, Batman, and Commissioner Gordon die (like how April, Casey, and Klunk died), and the government intiates a manhunt for the turtles, much like how Commisioner Gordon led a manhunt for Batman.
