Episode Summary

The boys have made friends with a group of homeless, and are worried when they start mysteriously disappearing into the night! Some Turtle-style detective work leads them to the Garbageman, an immense, smelly egomaniac, who is kidnapping the homeless for slave labor to build an empire on a foundation of garbage. Sounds like it's time for the Turtles to take out the trash!moreless

      • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: Secret of the Ooze

        Leonardo: It's quiet, too quiet.
        Michelangelo: Okay, how does Leo make that line work?

        This is remniscent of a scene from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: Secret of the Ooze. When Rapahel is captured and the rest of the turtles go to rescue him. Leo says the line, "It's quiet, a little too quiet." Mikey in his efforts to crack jokes says when they see Raph, "It's Raph, a little too Raph."
