Episode Summary

Darkness on the Edge of Town
The Turtles, investigating a strange blackout, discover the Foot Ninja stealing a Japanese ceremonial sword from the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The sword turns out to have incredible powers — able to create powerful vibrational shockwaves. Investigating another blackout, the Turtles discover the Foot has hooked up the sword to a high-tech cannon apparatus for some nefarious purpose. The Turtles battle more Foot Ninja, but now they must shut down the vibrational cannon, which threatens to topple a good chunk of lower Manhattan...moreless

    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (3)

      • The glove for the sword of Tengu looks to be made for the left hand, as Donny and Master Splinter wear it there. It gives the impression that the Shredder is left handed. After all, he's the one who had the sword forged.

      • When we get a good look at the Sword of Tengu we can see very clearly that the hilt is ended with a nob in the shape of an Utrom, but in real life Japanese swords DON'T have nobs on the end. This mistake is caused from artists confusing the design of the katana with that of swords wielded by British and European knights.

      • According to Raph, nobody will be able to be seen in the darkness. So how did the Turtles see the Foot Ninja surrounding them if it was pitch black?

    • QUOTES (13)

      • Saki: (after the turtles stole the Sword of Tengu) For a long time, longer than you can possibly imagine, my enemies have managed to elude me. Here at last is proof of their presence in this city, and all it costs me was the Sword of Tengu!

      • Donatello: My name is Donatello, and right now, I'm learning just how long I can hold my breath. That vibrocannon is seriously messing up the East River, if this keeps up, the whole South Street Seaport could go crumbling into the water. I'd be fascinated by the technology, if I wasn't otherwise occupied.

      • Leonardo: Wait up! (sigh It's tough being a leader.

      • Raph: I smell a rat and I don't mean Splinter.

      • Mikey: (Talking about Splinter) What's up with the Big Cheese?

      • (Raph knocks the head of a practice dummy across the room into Mike's bag of chips.)
        Mike: Woah, remind me never to get on your bad side, dude.
        Raph: Too late.

      • Raph: I say we head topside, kick ninja butt, take ninja names and find out the whole ninja story.

      • (Splinter lights a candle)
        Leo: Keep that flame away from Mikey. He scarfed down a whole chili pizza for dinner.

      • (The vibration cannon is destroying the pier)
        Mikey: Talk about bad vibes!
        Raph: Not funny, Mikey!

      • Leo: Master Splinter told us not to go top side.
        Raph: Sensi only told us not to fight those ninjas, he didn't say anything about investigating the blackouts.
        Leo: It's not easy being the leader.

      • Mikey: Argh! Shiver me timbers! Blow me down! (Foot Ninjas corner him.) Um... about the blow me down part...

      • Leo: (While fighting the Foot) A little help here?
        Don, Mikey, Raph: We're on it!
        Leo: Guys, look out!!
        (All the Foot jump away, the rest crash into Leo.)
        Mikey: Uh, I sense a team work training session in our future...

      • (Leo races past Splinter.)
        Leo: Excuse me, Sensei!
        (Donny's bike launches over Splinter's head.)
        Don: Heads up, Sensei! I mean down!
        (Splinter jumps out of Raphael's way.)
        Raph: Nice recovery, Sensei!
        (Mikey snatches one of Splinter's cup-cakes as he skates past.)
        Mikey: Hey, thanks, Sensei!
