Quotes

"If my calculations are correct, it's all your fault... The others needed D-3s in order to compete with you, so their subconscious minds must have somehow willed their digivices to chance, although I'm not sure Davis has a subconscious mind."

Izzy theorizes about the existence of the D-3s.

"Huh? Tell me I'm not seeing what I think I'm seeing!"

Yolei, reacting to seeing BlackWarGreymon appear in Kyoto.

Ken: "All right, Yolei, the rest is up to you now."
Yolei: "What are you talking about?! Come back!"

—Yolei's not too happy about Ken seemingly abandoning her.

"When everything happened three years ago, I was right in the middle of the battle. Actually, my brother Joe was a little more involved. I was sort of helping out from the sidelines. It's not that I couldn't help them fight, it's just that I wanted to give the kid a chance to learn on his own."

Jim has an interesting take on the events of Digimon Adventure.

Other notes

Continuity errors

  • Michelle and Terry are in the same class as Yolei despite the fact that they were Mimi's classmates in 1999, and therefore should be in the 7th grade, as the Japanese class system doesn't allow one to repeat grades under normal circumstances.

Digimon references

Real-world references

  • This episode sees Yolei in Kyoto.
  • The car Joe's brother is driving is a Volkswagen New Beetle.
  • Izzy and Ken, while discussing issues concerning the human subconscious, cite fictional books and authors such as Singvold's "Theory of Ultimate Brain Power" (on which Ken had taught a class), Tissaro's "Strengthening Your Mind", and Korsky's "My Buddy, My Brain".

Miscellaneous trivia

  • Yolei announces the episode title in the Japanese episode.
  • This is the first episode to see a Digimon armor digivolve in the human world, as well as the first time a Digimon transitions through multiple forms while degenerating.
