    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (2)

      • Prof Hart tells Ryan to infiltrate the base, yet it's Kaitlin & JB who actually do it!

      • How did Prof. Hart make adjustments to Kaitlin's car? First, she didn't drive it to the lab (they walked), and secondly, it was never parked within the lab's portal!

    • QUOTES (1)

      • (after Jeb has been affected by a device)
        Ryan: Jeb, are you okay?
        Jeb: Yeah. Sure. I'm just fine, Ryan.
        (the Trooper teens are shocked to hear the words right out of his mouth)
        Kaitlin: J-J-J-Jeb? Did, um, he just talk?!
        Professor Hart: (laughs) As I said, that device can have strange effects on living beings.
        Ryan, Kaitlin, and J.B.: (laugh) Jeb!
        Jeb: You're lookin' at me like I drooled on your slipper.
        J.B.: Professor, you're doin' this! Right?
        Professor Hart: No. But I could return him to normal, if you wish.
        Jeb: No way!
        (he blows his first raspberry, and Kaitlin laughs)
        Ryan: Okay. Okay. Okay, you guys. We have gotta keep this a secret.
        Kaitlin: Yeah!
        Ryan: Jeb, you've got to promise me that you will never let anybody know that you can talk. I don't think the world is ready for it just yet.
        Jeb: Right! You got it, boss!

    • NOTES (5)

      • Debut of the VR Skybase and its tank component, the VR Battlecruiser (though neither are named in this episode).

      • Ryan's hound dog, Jeb, gains the ability to speak in this episode, thanks to his nosing around in the lab.

      • Skugs, Grimlord's gold-headed, robotic-mutant footsoldiers capable of passing between worlds, fight the Troopers for the first time. The majority of their battles with the team will involve our heroes being untransformed, due to the dexterity of the costumes (and the fact they were the only full villain suits fabricated for first season at all!)

      • Kaitlin's red car gets an upgrade, making it now capable of flying and communicating with Professor Hart.

      • General Ivar, Grimlord's chief military commander (seen briefly last episode) fights the Troopers for the first time with his tank.
