The Monarch continues to reconstruct his villainous empire via the assist of his shadowy new Number 2, Dr. Henry Killinger, but Henchman 21 is suspicious of the deadly foreigner"s unctuous charms. At the same time, as Dr. Orpheus attempts to exorcise a Japanese demon from Dr. Venture, a mysterious womale from Doc"s past resurfaces. And she"d kill to uncover out where Hank and Dean are.
An office structure. Looks quiet. A shadow looms over them. The Cocoon. A few of the workers go over to the home window to research, just to have them shatter. Hundreds of razor sharp mechanical butterflies pierce the skin of anyone unlucky enough to be in their way. Some henchmen swing in, shooting or capturing anyone they see and planting explosives. The employees scream in horror and also flee for their stays. The Monarch walks in, laughing manically.
THE MONARCHWhere is he?! Where is Venture!!
Roll opening credits.
In Dr. O"s research he is petting his cat as soon as tbelow is a ring at his doorbell. Dr. Venture. Back from Japan. With a guest. An Oni.
A Japanese demon that"s typically after some create of retribution. Though Brock can not view it apparently, however Dr. O deserve to. Dr. O goes to his bookshelf and also gets out some gigantic gold tongs. The tongs, however, upcollection the Oni and also he flies approximately the room, dragging Dr. Venture via him. Dr. Orpheus decides he requirements to consult a higher power on the matter.
DR. ORPHEUSWait here while I go to my daughter"s clocollection.
Back in the Cocoon the henchguys and the Monarch are going over their earlier attack, though nobody seems to be paying attention and the Monarch appears bored out of his mind. 24 is providing a lecture and describes that the factor they failed is bereason they lacked weaponry. 21 takes the floor. He presents "the petablade". Two razor sharp knives menacingly attached to not the finish of a skinny arm, yet the finish of a long fat leg. Okay, so they"re number skates. A henchman that is plainly not adept at skating demonstrates the cutting power of the "petablade" by kicking a sandbag dummy and acquiring his foot caught.
THE MONARCHWha- what? We raided the wrong resolve. We need actual planning not, what, number skates?!HENCHMAN 21Look, I am trying. This is really hard. I know I"m not Dr. Girl-THE MONARCHDO. NOT. SAY. HER. NAME.KILLINGERForgive me, yet the trouble is among planning. Not one of armament. Mister the Monarch already has actually a dazzling armory. What he requirements is a strategist. A man of his prestige cannot simply pursue an enemy all willy nilly.HENCHMAN 21He can not give an enema to Free Willy? What?THE MONARCHShut up, 21. You might learn somepoint from this guy.KILLINGERWhat you need is a 2nd in command also who understands the intricacies of arranged villainy. This I deserve to sell you.THE MONARCHPerfect. You"re hired. Uhh, number...KILLINGERNumber Killinger. Dr. Henry Killinger. And this is my magic murder bag.
At the same time at the Venture Compound Hank and Dean are practicing for their upcoming road test. Or fairly, Dean is driving incredibly slow and running right into cones while Hank comlevels. Just then Hank notices a damaged down automobile ahead of them. Dean comments that he didn"t understand they obtained that much traffic inside the compound. Dean says they have to pull over and check for injuries and flag down a state trooper. He then performs an exceptionally sluggish k-revolve which Hank decides not to stick roughly for, exiting the auto. Dean freaks out because Hank has simply jumped from a relocating auto, but Hank comes over to the driver"s side and also turns off the auto for Dean so they can check out the other auto.
There"s a woman laying in front of it, seemingly unconscious! Without warning she spins about and sprays Hank via some kind of... spray... that knocks him out. Same for Dean. Uh oh.
Dr. Orpheus, meanwhile, has actually uncovered the Master again:
DR. ORPHEUSMaster? Master are you here? I have actually need of your counsel. Ohh?THE MASTEROrpheus you"re gonna love this, check me out. Huh? I"m Catherine the Great"s equine. To teach you a leskid around biting off more than you can chew. My partially lovely assistant, Mrs. Manyface, will certainly be playing the part of Catherine.MRS. MANYFACEMmm, hi.THE MASTERHey sufficient through the chatter, gain under there.
In the Cocoon the Monarch is mirroring Killinger approximately. Killinger tells the Monarch that he"s a small overstaffed in his regulate room. The Monarch responds by informing one of his new guards to kill two of the henchmen in the room. Him, and the dead guy beside him.
HENCHMAN 21This location is all creepy given that that mumbly male just magically proved up.HENCHMAN 24Totally. Those brand-new black guard dicks took the Tekken 3 game out of the lounge.HENCHMAN 21Oh those males are wicked spooky. How unfair is it that they acquire the cooler uniforms?! I"m still wearing an orange jerkin!HENCHMAN 24Jerkin.THE MONARCHHey among you little chatterbugs desire to pop open up the Venture files? Killinger requirements to be carried as much as speed.HENCHMAN 21Yeah, those papers are classified.THE MONARCHBy whom?HENCHMAN 21Byyy... uh, you?THE MONARCHOkay good. Well
Back at the compound Brock has uncovered the boys" abandoned car and also is looking for them. Dr. Venture and also Dr. Orpheus display up following the Oni, though Brock still can"t see it. Brock wanders off to look for Hank and Dean. The Oni, meanwhile, has quit by the abandoned automobile the boys were driving. Perhaps the car is connected with a current sin? Dr. Venture says he can not remember the last time he acquired lucky in it.
Just then Dr. Venture grabs the Oni and stuffs him right into the trunk, seemingly victorious. However Dr. Orpheus notes that he"s still attached to the Oni by some sort of psychic thcheck out. Seemingly on cue the automobile starts and begins to drive around, dragging Dr. Venture with it of course. It stops and opens the door.
DR. ORPHEUSI suggest we obtain in and also see where it takes us.DR. VENTUREWhat if it wants to go earlier to Japan!?
At the Cocoon, meanwhile, Killinger is going over the Venture "problem", as soon as he notes that there are some problems with the Cocoon. 21 and 24 gang up on him for coming in, seemingly out of nowhere, and taking things over prefer he did. The Monarch finally gets fed up when 24 says that Killinger is trying to destroy them from the inside. He tells the guards to take 24 to the Chamber of 1000 Torments. He"ll let Killinger execute 993. Killinger comments that the Monarch"s approaches of torture are as well Draconian, and that all he requirements is a minute alone through 24. They walk off till Killinger remembers that he forgot his magic murder bag. 21 looks fully unhappy.
Dr. O and Dr. V, meanwhile, pull up to an old beat up motel:
DR. ORPHEUSWe"ve quit. What is this place?DR. VENTUREA cheap motel.DR. ORPHEUSPerhaps it desires us to... continue to be right here and remainder till morning?DR. VENTUREWait, I recognize what you"re doing. You"re trying to get me in the sack!DR. ORPHEUSI beg your pardon!?DR. VENTURENo wonder nobody however you deserve to watch that head!DR. ORPHEUS
The car starts up aacquire and pulls into a parking room at the motel.
On the other hand Brock and also HELPeR are driving approximately trying to find the boys and listening to Led Zeppelin, or at least something comparable that will not cost almost as a lot to license. HELPeR turns the volume down.
He pulls up in front of a dumpster. Located. He jumps in and starts in search of the boys, however just uncovers their communicators. They flash the message "The Boys..." and also "Are Mine!". Brock removes ameans some paper from them. A bomb.
BROCKOh crap, Myra"s back.
The dumpster explodes.
Hank and Dean, meanwhile, are in an extremely dank looking room somewbelow. Tied up. Of course. Hank wakes Dean up.
HANKDean! I smell pee-pee.DEANWell what are you looking at me for?HANKDeeean, did you obtain pee-pee scared again?DEANNo, shut up. Wright here are we this time?
Just then in the following room over a woguy singing a lullaby walks by a damaged dvery own door. She appears to be pacing and lastly notices the boys are now awake.
MYRAOh, you"re up! You can relax. The nightmare is lastly over.HANKUh, no it isn"t.MYRAHankie, my bit snotty-puggy-dinky. Dean, Dean, Dean, Jimmy Dean, Jimmy Dean sausages.
HENCHMAN 21Uhh, I need to bring the prisoner his medication.
Hank and Dean, meanwhile, are grappling with the prospect of lastly understanding that their mother is. Only she can not be on account of the crazy, right?
HANKIf you"re expected to be our mom then why execute you gained us tied up, huh? People only carry out that once they desire to kill us.DEANOr hold us for ransom.HANKOr touch us inaccordingly.DEANWhat?! When? That never hap-HANKSergeant Hatred? What, did you block that out? Oh, no wait. You were passed out from the wine. Many of it was awful. Trust me.
Myra them proceeds to freak the fuck out and then unexpectedly calms down and also asks Hank and Dean if she"s ever told them exactly how she and Rusty met.
Back in the Cocoon 21 has snuck into Killinger"s room. He yells "EAT WEB!" and also then sprays Killinger"s magic murder bag via those Spider-Man internet shooters that fire silly string. You know the ones. Killinger wakes up and also calls in a black guard (that reportedly did not check out 21 enter the room at all) who grabs 21.
HENCHMAN 21You have the right to silence me yet tbelow will certainly be others!! Semper fidelis tyranosaurus!KILLINGERIt"s "sic semper tyrannous". You sassist "constantly faithful disastrous lizard".HENCHMAN 21I did? Cool!
Back at the motel Dr. O enters the room through ice and also snacks from the vending machine. Dr. Venture apologizes for previously and also Orpheus accepts. After a brief awkward silence Dr. Venture asks if Dr. O desires to go halfsies on a skin flick. Kay.
Back at the Cocoon aobtain, 21 is warning the babsence guard about exactly how gassy he gets as soon as he"s scared. The guard talks to him and also reveals himself to be 24. 21 attempts to complimentary 24 for the "hypno-spell" he is reportedly under. He utters some weird stuff and also then runs amethod while 24 watches in what I guess is either amusement or disidea (it"s hard to tell because you can not check out his challenge under the mask). 21 makes a run for it but trips and lands on his cell phone.
Back in the dank area, Myra is talking to Hank and Dean:
MYRAHe was my first project. Fresh out of the OSI academy. I was still just a girl, what did I know? Never let your guard down, never let "em out of your sight, never autumn in love. That"s what they taught me. But I couldn"t assist myself! Your father
HANKEwwww!MYRANo!! No! It was not ookey! It was the a lot of wonderful, passionate night of either of our lives!! And nine months later? You two perfect little bit wet pink kit10s came right into the world. From out of my body.DEANAww, double-eww!
21, meanwhile, has actually ennoted the assist of someone. It"s Dr. Girlfriend. 21 starts going on about spin-art. Clbeforehand Dr. Girlfriend is not amoffered. They drive out of frame and Brock and also HELPeR, that has deployed his helicopter capabilities, fly into framework. Brock thanks HELPeR for rescuing him.
At the motel the next morning the Oni is driving the auto into the wall in order to wake a really unhappy Dr. Venture up.
Myra, meanwhile, is still going on. Now she"s talking about Dr. Venture and exactly how he had her locked up so he could control the boys without her in the image. Hank and also Dean are resting. Myra mentions that the boys are nineteen. Dean corrects her, saying they"re sixteen. Myra notes that she had actually to kidnap them in order to conserve them. Especially from the "lie machines" Dr. Venture makes them sleep in. Just then five cats come into the room. Hank and Dean"s brothers and sisters. Right. Myra states that the cats are hungry, and then freaks out aacquire as soon as she realizes Hank and also Dean haven"t been fed. She unzips her height and also shoves her jugs in Hank and Dean"s encounters in an amazingly negative effort to breast feed them. A bell rings. Myra stops what she was doing, grabs a shotgun and also conveniently runs right into the next room.
It"s Dr. Orpheus! Checking out? Uh oh. Myra notices Dr. Venture sitting in the car external. She jumps over the front desk and pummels Dr. Orpheus. Dr. Venture, meanwhile, is listening to the radio and entirely oblivious to the savage beating his tenant is receiving.
Back in the Cocoon Dr. Girlfrifinish lis10s to 21 ramble a tiny till they concerned a hallmethod lined with a laser protection grid. Dr. Girlfriend does a bunch of crazy gymnastic moves and slips by the grid without triggering it. 21 attempts the same but instead falls on his challenge and also of course sets off the alarm.
DR. GIRLFRIENDSo, are you as good at fighting as you are at talking?HENCHMAN 21Hell no, look at me! I"m even more of a tools skilled.
Black guards flood right into the room and Dr. Girlfriend goes to work-related. She takes out 2, and also then does an awesome wallwalk move, yet is grabbed by 2 more guards. A 3rd developments and also she kicks him in the face before he have the right to strike and offers him to vault over the 2 holding her. She grabs their spears while they"re perplexed and also stabs them both via the chest. Awesome.
HENCHMAN 21That is so fantastic. Well I prefer to execute that too. It"s soft!
Back at the motel Myra straps the boys into her auto. Dr. Venture is in the front seat.
Myra clocks Dr. Venture with the butt of her shotgun, knocking him out. Brock lands.
BROCKStay close. Any of your weapons still work?HELPeR
Myra runs down Brock and HELPeR and also drives off. Brock gets up and walks into the street. When Myra notices him in the rear check out mirror she does a 180 and guns it towards Brock. Brock simply stands there via his back to Myra"s car. He breathes deeply and closes his eyes. Right before the vehicle hits him he drops backwards, crashing through the windshield and landing in the driver"s seat on height of Myra. He hits the breaks.
BROCKEveryone okay?HANKEveryone except mommy.BROCKYeah, she"ll be albest.MYRA
In the Cocoon meanwhile, Killinger and the Monarch are in the meeting room pointing out Killinger"s plans. The Monarch argues through him given that they don"t involve crushing Venture when Killinger tells him to relocate to stop Dr. Girlfriend once she falls from the ceiling. The Monarch doesn"t understand also Killinger though, so Killinger just pulls him ameans right prior to Dr. Girlfrifinish lands on the table in front of them.
THE MONARCHWhat the hell is she doing here?!KILLINGERThis womale has actually come to rescue you.THE MONARCHFrom what?KILLINGERFrom loneliness, you silly-billy.DR. GIRLFRIENDWho the hell are you?KILLINGERDr. Henry Killinger. Wait.
Back in the Venture car:
HANKSo? Is she or isn"t she?BROCKOkay, Hank, look! She provided to be Power Cat on American Gladiators. Show gets tanked, she checks herself into the nuthouse. Eincredibly couple of years she puts on the old costume, kidnaps you or tries to kill your dad or burns down the compound. Depends on what meds she"s coming off of.DEANHow come we don"t remember her then?BROCKLook you don"t remember because you"re clone-
Roll finish credits.
Still in the car, the trunk opens as soon as Killinger whistles. The Oni flies out.

KILLINGERYou tried your ideal. Yes, you failed to reunite them, yet look at it this method. You conserved his boys, and also that"s what counts. Compromise, my frifinish, is the essence of diplomacy. And diplomacy is the cornerstone of love. Sweeeeet love.
NotesThe title of this episode is a referral to the Maya Angelou autobiography I Kcurrently Why the Caged Bird Sings. Likewise, she is pointed out in the episode by HELPeR of all world (uh, of all robots?) in recommendation to Myra and also why she continues to bother the Venture family.So apparently the Monarch does have actually a home page with a Quicktime of his minty-fresh entrance? the Internet is an amazing place.The Oni of course is based on the same from Japanese mythology. However before their actions has adjusted throughout the years. Originally they were benevolent creatures said to be able to ward off evil, yet over the years their association with evil brought about them to become viewed as harbingers of evil and calamity. Today they are viewed as spirits of the dead (and miscellaneous various other things) and are mostly to be avoided. I can not seem to uncover much on Onis trying to gain human being back together though, so that can be a new task function for them.Dr. Henry Killinger is fairly obviously based about Henry Kissinger, who was secretary of state under President Nixon (and later on Ford) from 1973 - 1977 and also prior to that he was nationwide defense advisor under Nixon from 1969 - 1973. Kissinger is many well-known for his influence in US international plan at the moment. He pioneered the policy of detente which assisted relax US-Soviet tensions and also additionally played a vital role in the "opening" of China in 1972.Kissinger was among the much better liked members of the Nixon management as a result of his lack of involvement via Watergate and also his intellect and also diplomatic skill as a politician. Tright here was also a movement to allow the president to be non-US born (Kissinger was born in Germany) so Kissinger can run.Another facet of Killinger"s character not revealed till later on in the episode is exceptionally reminiscent of Mary Poppins, which is a Disney movie around a nanny that comes from seemingly nowright here in order to solve a family. At the end of the film she is effective and flies ameans via her umbrella, equivalent to Killinger at the end of the episode.Catherine the Great, or more accurately Catherine II of Russia, discussed in this episode by the Master (and also later on Myra) was the Empush of Russia from 1762 till her death in 1796. The actual cause of her death was a stroke while taking a bath (she died the complying with day without ever before reacquiring consciousness). However the a lot of widespread city legfinish for her cause of death was that she attempted to, uh, gain it on with a stallion. However before the harness broke and she was crushed to fatality. This is completely untrue (and probably acquired from other tall tales around Catherine stating that she engaged in sexual connections through a steed but at a younger age than 67), though I guess the Master does not seem to treatment. Hopetotally Mrs. Manyconfront will certainly be okay.Tekken 3 is a 3rd in the Tekken series of fighting games. Presumably the Monarch"s henchguys have actually the arcade variation, though they might also have the Playterminal or Dreamactors versions of the game.This has been discussed to me a lot, so below we go. The black guards share many similar architecture facets to Cobra Commander, the leader of COBRA in GI Joe. Although Cobra Commander has actually undertaken miscellaneous redeindications over the years, among his getups is pretty similar to the babsence guards, namely the one featured in the TV series. I have actually no principle if this is intentional or not.Brock"s love for Zep surfaces aget in this episode. HELPeR complains that Zep sings around hobbits a lot, which is a recommendation to the Zeppelin songs "Over The Hills and Far Away", "Misty Mountain Hop", "The Battle of Evereven more," and also "Ramble On", all of which contain clear recommendations to Tolkien"s works (The Hoblittle and also Lord of the Rings which Jimmy Page and Robert Plant were fans of).Myra"s character shows up to be at leastern partly based on Michelle Pfeiffer"s Catwoman/Selina Kyle character in Batman Returns. Both are a little off their rocker, obsessed through cats and wear a reportedly sewn together patent leather suit. Myra"s additionally detailed to have actually been "Powercat" on American Gladiators by Brock and her license plate claims "PSSYKAT", which even more adds to the cat angle.No doubt tright here will certainly be a lot of conflict over weather or not Myra is the boys real biological mom or just some crazy lady as Brock said. Jackson and also Doc have actually shelp they won"t drop the "mommy bomb" till a a lot later on seaboy (they said season five during an Adult Swim panel), and also Brock did seem favor he was telling the boys the truth considering that he accidently slipped up and also told them they were clones (it"s fortunate the boys aren"t exceptionally bright). However before there are specific things that have the right to throw it off, such as Dr. Venture admitting to doing the nasty via Myra and Myra doing the exact same "ten and two" thing that Dean did while driving. It"s additionally worth noting that Myra has blonde hair and display screens maybe some similarities to Hank"s somewhat off-kilter personality. She also knows about the boys" beds and also the truth that they are not actually sixteen (or should not be) which was briefly touched upon in Hate Floats once the Hank questioned the birthdate on their driving permits. All we have the right to really do is speculate though. Speculate away!21"s line "he knows nopoint of honor or living by the sword" is a line spoken by Dracula in Blade: Trinity.21"s internet shooters are easily accessible for purchase if you have the right to discover it I guess. They were pretty well-known once the Spider-Man movies were released. They shoot silly string and in basic aren"t a lot fun given that you need to clean it all up after you"re done. Plus silly string is a negative substitute for webbing fluid.In the exact same scene 21 likewise yells "Semper fidelis tyranosaurus!" which is actually analyzed to "constantly faithful tyrant lizard" (tyranosaurus implies "tyrant lizard", not "devastating lizard", dinosaur suggests "devastating lizard"). It"s a butchering and combicountry of the Latin phrases "semper fidelis" (the US Marine Corp motto) and "sic semper tyrannis", which was the phrase spoken by John Wilkes Booth after he swarm President Lincoln. Those phrases interpret to "always faithful" and also "for this reason always to tyrants", respectively. Presumably 21 wants to utter just the second expression.Myra"s story about how she and Rusty acquired together has actually a couple recommendations. First her line "Never let your guard dvery own, never before let "em out of your sight, never autumn in love" is the tagline from the movie The Bodyguard, and also likewise the scene wbelow she takes a bullet for Rusty is type of equivalent to a scene from that movie (though in the movie the bodyguard is a man and also the perchild being swarm at is a woman).Earlier on she states "So true, funny exactly how it appears, constantly in time, yet never in line for dreams" and also "I bought a ticket to the world, yet now I"ve come earlier again!" which are lines from the song True by Spandau Ballet.And ultimately when she says "Search for feelings, you recognize it to be true" after the boys refusage to believe she"s their mommy, this is a recommendation to The Realm Strikes Back as soon as Vader tells Luke that he is his father.Dr. Girlfrifinish slipping past the laser grid is reminiscent of the scene in Entrapment wbelow Catherine Zeta-Jones character slips past a similar laser grid (though not as quickly).HELPeR"s weapons being offline is perhaps a referral to Victor. Echo. November. when HELPeR was ripped acomponent by Guild commandos protecting Dr. Venture.
