Episode Summary

As the tournament begins, the first two duels are announced as Joey Wheeler vs. Apdnarg Otum and Leon Wilson vs. Dr. Richard Goat. Leon and Goat both arrive at their designated duel area on time, and so does Apdnarg, but Joey doesn't realize he has to be at his duel area, and because of that, must race against time to find Apdnarg in the Amazon Cruise zone. When Joey and the other eventually get there, the two start their duel. However, Yugi, Tea, and Tristan are too preoccupied by how much Apdnarg looks like Yugi's grandpa. Professor Hawkins appears behind them to fill them in. Solomon had called him to tell him that he would be participating in Kaiba's new tournament.

Apdnarg soon plays his Stone Giant and his Ancient City, which special summons two Stone Giant tokens. In addition, he claims that the worst is yet to come...moreless

  • Joey makes it all worth while to get out of bed.

    Joey Wheeler has always been my favorite duelist from Yu gi oh. This episode proves why. It was funny, and smart. The only draw back was that dumb doctor duelist. Leon is sure to kick his butt any day of the week!! I want to see more of Leon in this series. He and Siegfried are intriguing me. I feel like there's a connection...wonder what it is...

  • QUOTES (16)

    • Solomon: How do ya like them apples?
      Joey: Ah, that saying went out about fifty years ago. And while we're at it, so did those overalls.

    • Téa: About Mr. Muto. I just hope he doesn't hurt himself.
      Yugi: I'm more worried about Joey.

    • Tristan: Hey, you invited him, right?
      Mokuba: Nope. Actually, Mr. Muto begged to be let in.
      Everyone: Huh?

    • Mokuba: If you're not here in ten seconds, you're disqualified. Six, Five... (Joey grabs hold of him.) Wahh!
      Joey: I... made it... With five seconds to spare. Hey, how'd you get here before I did?
      Mokuba: (sighs) I tried to tell you. There's a secret passageway for special guests.
      Joey: Wa! No! It's not fair! I fought off giant snakes!

    • (They're being chased by a boulder.)
      Joey: Now what?

      Joey: Ah! (falls in pitfall)
      Tristan: ...pitfalls.
      Téa: You okay?
      Joey: This place is the pits!

    • Mokuba: (Sees Joey with hotdogs.) You should be on the Amazon Adventure trail.
      Joey: Guess again, pal. Joey doesn't duel on an empty stomach. I gotta bulk up for my first match.
      Mokuba: Wake up! You're first match has already started!
      Joey: Huh?
      Mokuba: And if you don't get your butt over to that dueling site in the next ten minutes, then you'll be disqualified!
      Joey: Aiee! You wouldn't... hold on, ten minutes is a piece of cake.
      Mokuba: You'll never make it! The Amazon Adventure is a 15 square mile virtual jungle!
      Joey: Aieh?
      Tristan: Drop the dogs.

    • Tristan: Oh, man... This dude in the mask looks so familiar.
      Téa: Wait, isn't that our gym teacher?

      Yugi: Uh-huh.

    • Dr. Goat: Draw five cards and call me in the morning.
      Leon: Huh?
      Dr. Goat: It's a doctor thing.

      Joey: What is that thing?
      Grandpa: Well, as the card's name suggests, it's an ancient city.

    • Joey: (being attacked by bats) Anytime you guys wanna jump in and help!

      Tristan: And spoil the fun?
