Full quotes part 1

SERPENTOR: Blunderers! Fools! We possess power greater than any on earthWe possess power greater than any on earth yet our conquests are stripped from us on every front! Our most dangerous enemy is not G.I. Joe, but your collective incompetence! COBRA COMMANDER: Hogwash! SERPENTOR: What do you dare say? COBRA COMMANDER: The fault, most imperial Serpentor, lies not within us, but within you! Your leadership has been pompous, pusillanimous, and pathetic! ZARANA: What did he say? He's gone batty! ZANDAR: That's treason! DOCTOR MINDBENDER: I don't believe it! SERPENTOR: Yes, leadership is at the very heart of this matterleadership is at the very heart of this matter. But it is not mine that is inadequate, Cobra Commander, it is yours. Your ego-driven stupidity had converted victory to catastrophe for the last time! COBRA COMMANDER: Go ahead. Make me the scapegoat. My loyal subordinates could testify to my superb stewardship of Cobra, but you don't have the courage to let them speak. SERPENTOR: Wrong again! Defend him, if you can. COBRA COMMANDER: Indeed they shall. You first, noble Destro. DESTRO: Militarily speaking, it is only fair to say that Cobra Commander is a world class buffoon. COBRA COMMANDER: What? Baroness! Doctor Mindbender! Brave Xamot and Tomax! You won't let this treacherous assassination of my character go unchallenged, will you? DOCTOR MINDBENDER: Certainly not. Destro forgot to mention your frequent displays of cowardice. COBRA COMMANDER: Ash! Hogw! BARONESS: And you botched our desert campaign! DESTRO: We had won, but you countermanded my orderWe had won, but you countermanded my order! BARONESS: Your meddling brought us defeat, again and again and again! DOCTOR MINDBENDER: You're not just a fool, you're Cobra's curse! TOMAX: Inept! Insufficient! Inexcusable! COBRA COMMANDER: Unsubstantiated fantasy! Lies! Lies! LIES! SOLDIER: Intruder alert, sector 45A. Battle stations! There! Stop him! DESTRO: Look! Security has been breached! COBRA COMMANDER: This may be an assassination attempt. Serpentor must stay here. We will intercept the intruder. SERPENTOR: I will meet this intruder at arms! BARONESS: No! We must protect you! DOCTOR MINDBENDER: Without you, there is no Cobra! COBRA COMMANDER: Yes. Yes, if something happened to Serpentor, it would be tragic, wouldn't it? We shall stop this assassin. Come, follow me. Cobra! SOLDIER: Come on men lets move on COBRA COMMANDER: No, not this way, that way! SOLDIER: Intruder approaching Serpentor's war room. Seal all sectors!

Trivia

G.I. Joe is a line of action figures produced by the toy company Hasbro. The initial product offering represented four of the branches of the U.S. armed forces with the Action Soldier (U.S. Army), Action Sailor (U.S. Navy), Action Pilot (USAF), Action Marine (USMC) and later on, the Action Nurse. The development of G.I. Joe led to the coining of the term "action figure". G.I. Joe's appeal to children has made it an American icon among toys. The film's opening sequence with the G.I. Joe soldiers saving the Statue of Liberty from the Cobra invaders was originally intended to be the climax in the earlier drafts. The name "Cobra-La" was not intended to be in the movie. The writers planned to replace it when they came up with a better name, but Hasbro loved the name. The film was being produced at the same time as The Transformers: The Movie (1986).

Production

Produced by Sunbow and Marvel Productions and animated by Toei Animation; co-produced and directed by Don Jurwich; written by Ron Friedman; story consultant Buzz Dixon; produced by Jules Bacal, Tom Griffin; music by Johnny Douglas, Robert J. Walsh; film Editing by David Hankins.
