* The particular herb that Tunnel Rat identifies for treating Scarlett's reaction to the poison is ''plantain'', also known as ''plantago''. Plantago was brought to North America by European colonists, and promptly spread over the entire continent like AlienKudzu- Tunnel Rat locating it so quickly was less a matter of finding just the right herb at a critical moment, and more like a trained survivalist believably remembering that there's a weed which has anti-toxic, anti-inflammatory, and anti-histamine properties that is so widespread that this troper is surprised that he had to look for more than a second to find some. On top of that, plantain is widely believed to cure ''[[MythologyGag snake]]bite''.

"A Ragtag bunch of fugitives"
* The Joe's have always been the best of the best degrading them to "fugitives trying to clear their names" degrades the entire franchise. Heck i can live with their cover being fugitives until they can expose cobra but the idea that they don't even have the support of the government just makes my stomach turn. a more Mission Impossible vibe would have suited me better, "As you know until we expose cobra the United States government can neither condone nor acknowledge your existence."
