Recap: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2003 S 1 E 14 Notes From The Underground Part 2
Inside the Foot Genetics lab, the Turtles learn of past experiments that turned human subjects into monsters. The brothers soon encounter a group of these creatures who are at first hostile, but eventually become allies. The Turtles now find themselves helping these creatures evade the attacks of similar, but mindless monsters. This new partnership takes the Turtles deeper into the seemingly haunted catacombs, where creatures, and later Donatello, have disappeared.

This episode provides examples of:

  • Convection Schmonvection
  • Foreshadowing: Quarry only remembers that his real name starts with an S. In the sequel episode "Return to the Underground", it's revealed that his name or rather, her name, is Sidney.
  • Power Glows: the crystals
  • Reluctant Monster: Quarry, Stonebiter and Razorfist only attack the turtles because they believe they are affiliated with The Foot. Once both sides realize they're not enemies they start working together.
  • Shout-Out: Mikey saying "Zoinks"
  • Underground City: What Quarry refers to as 'The Forbidden Zone' and 'The Necropolis'.
