Rock 'n Roll and Mutt meet up with Alpine and Bazooka at Old Clyde's bar in a Delhi Hills. Mutt has replaced Junkyard with Junkyard Junior due to age. Alpine has been offered a high paying accounting job in the town and Bazooka has been hitting the gym. The four Joes see three men in dark suits enter and go into a back room.
Cobra Commander is one hundred miles away in an ARBCO truck, upset at Dr. Mindbender about losing the B.A.T. Lillian is being used as Cobra Commander's servant. Destro reports in, stating that the Strike Hiss prototype is ready.
Baroness tells Destro that she is going to leave Scotland to run out Germany for some clothes shopping. Destro and Baroness are using Alexander to clean their floors. Once in the car, the Baroness is kidnapped by someone from the Yakuza.
The four Joes at Old Clyde's begin to get suspicious, and question Clyde. Clyde says there is just a poker game going on in back. Clyde overhears the Joes talking about a previous mission and reports in to Cobra. Bazooka runs into someone wearing a Serpents' Jersey.
Rock 'n Roll realizes that Clyde is wearing a Cobra ring, and attacks, but the four Joes are subdued because everyone in town is armed and working for Cobra.
