Izzy falls victim to Vademon, a Digimon who preys on curiousity, and becomes lost, both physically and mentally, in another dimension.


DA ep24 recap

Episode recap for No Questions, Please.


Izzy and Tentomon, on a rocky path, on a journey to find Gennai, find themselves surrounded by signs warning them to turn back (as a trap set by DemiDevimon to get Izzy's tag and crest for his master, Myotismon). The ground crumbles from underneath them, sending them into darkness. As he falls, Izzy hears a voice which accuses him of being greedy when it comes to knowledge, and demands that he give up his curiosity. (In the original Japanese, the voice demanded Koushiro's "inner heart".) With no other options, Izzy gives in, and enters a trance-like state. Moments later, he and Tentomon are floating through endless space, and the mystery voice reveals itself as the Big-brained Digimon, Vademon, telling Izzy to forget everything. Tentomon's attempts to bring back the old Izzy fail, as Izzy pushes him away and focuses more on Vademon's guidance and tutoring. Meanwhile, DemiDevimon offers a piece of his curiosity to Vademon in exchange for Izzy's crest. Back in endless space, Tentomon has de-digivolved to his weakest form, Pabumon, and catches Izzy's attention, who initially, angrily, shouts at him for interrupting his lesson. Pabumon reminds Izzy of the times they've had together, and Izzy snaps out of his dozy behavior, horrified at what he's done. After apologizing to Pabumon, they then find their way into Vademon's store room where Izzy's curiosity is held, but not before Vademon discovers them and chases them back into his 'endless space' dimension, where a battle begins and Pabumon digivolves up to the ultimate MegaKabuterimon. He destroys Vademon's dimension, and carries Izzy out of an enormous explosion back outside, where Matt, Tsunomon, T.K., and Patamon are waiting for them.

Meanwhile, Myotismon punishes DemiDevimon for his failure by making him stay up in a tree.

Tentomon: "I like that about you, Izzy. You have a never ending thirst for information. It's amazing your brain doesn't explode with all that knowledge."
Izzy: "There are lot more things I can learn."
Tentomon: "How much room do you have up in your brain?"
Izzy: "As much as I need."

Tentomon is fascinated with Izzy's intelligence

Tentomon: "Look, Izzy, it's a sign!"
Izzy: "From above?"
Tentomon: "No, here on the ground."

Izzy and Tentomon find one of the signs that DemiDevimon left for them.

Izzy: "It says 'Beware of Falling Sludge'."
Tentomon: "Uh-oh, this could get real ugly."
"Yuck! Please tell me this was just a dream!"
Izzy: "Bottomless sludge pit, not a very pleasant experience."
Tentomon: "Ahh! I feel like I've been flushed! I hope i never see another sign again as long as i live!"
Izzy: "Attack Sludge? Impossible!"
Tentomon: "How humiliating! Being attacked by an attack sludge!"

Izzy's and Tentomon's misfortune with the signs

"What could possibly be wrong with gaining knowledge and information?"

Izzy in response to Vademon's taunting accusations.

"Vademon: curiosity salesman extraordinaire! A penny for your thoughts, a nickel for your fears!"

—As strange a business Vademon has, he does come prepared.

"Have you gone bananas?! You can't throw those away!"

Tentomon can't believe Izzy would just throw away his tag and crest.

"Have you forgotten who I am already, Izzy? Have you forgotten who you are? Try to remember, try!"

—A crying Pabumon tries to snap Izzy out of his trance.

"Come back in my heart. Come back in my heart."

Izzy, recovering his curiosity.

DemiDevimon: "Hehe. A funny thing happened to me on the way to Vademon's..."
Myotismon: "Prepare to face the consequences."
DemiDevimon: "I hate this part!"
Myotismon: "Quiet! You had your chance!"
DemiDevimon: "Don't make me sit in this tree all night! I'm afraid of heights! Can I at least have some milk and cookies?"

—DemiDevimon fails Myotismon yet again.

Other notes[]

Continuity errors

  • In the English dub, this episode's version of Izzy's video call to Tai does not match the version shown in Home Away From Home.
  • Izzy's digivice detects Matt and T.K. nearby shortly before his video call, despite them not leaving to search for him until they reunited with Tai.[please confirm]

Animation errors

  • When Izzy speaks to Tai on his laptop, Tentomon is holding the laptop. After he done, Izzy simply floats away from Tentomon, who is still holding the laptop. But in the next scene, Izzy has his laptop on his backpack. In the very next scene, Tentomon is seen holding the laptop again.
  • Tentomon is partially miscolored at several points in this episode:
    • At the very beginning of the episode, his thighs are colored red instead of green.
    • When Tentomon views the first sign posted by DemiDevimon, the grey part on his thighs is green.
    • When imagining the falling sludge, the bottom of Tentomon's feet are black where they should be red.
    • When Izzy and Tentomon are floating in the pit, Tentomon's right upper arm is red instead of green.
    • Soon after entering Vademon's universe, the black markings between Tentomon's eyes are gray.
    • When Izzy is throwing his possessions away, Tentomon's right thigh is red instead green.

Dubbing changes

  • In the Japanese airing, DemiDevimon's warning signs spoke of feces. The dub changed this to sludge.
  • In the Japanese airing, Vademon suggests that Izzy's curiosity will send him to Hell, while the English dub has him mention "a very unpleasant place".
  • DemiDevimon originally offered Vademon some of his guano, not his curiosity, as is stated in the English dub.
  • In the Japanese airing, Myotismon punishes DemiDevimon by siccing his bats on him, while in the English dub he imprisons him in a tall tree.

Miscellaneous trivia

  • MegaKabuterimon announces the episode title in the Japanese episode.
  • Vademon is the last Digimon to be analysed using the original Digimon Analyser theme.
