Divide and Conquer: Thanks to the Patrol Buggy's detachable sidecars, the Turtles can split to chase down two separate vehicles. While Donnie and Raph go to save April from Fong's van, Leo and Mikey go to stop Dogpound's tanker truck.
Doomed Hometown: Invoked. Shredder knows the turtles are in the sewers, so he plans to destroy the sewers in order to kill them. Thus, the turtles have to defend their home from being doomed.
Never Say "Die": Averted. Splinter does not sugarcoat the danger that the Shredder poses to the turtles.
Splinter: Rest? The Shredder will not rest...until you are all dead!
Never Trust a Trailer: Much like the previous episode, the commercials for this make it look as if the plot revolves around Mikey declaring a prank war and only shows scenes of him hitting his brothers with water balloons.
What a Piece of Junk: The patrol buggy. Although Donnie insists that it's not ready yet, it still has some nifty features and allows the Turtles to catch up with the bad guys. Then again, it falls apart when the chase is over.
Wig, Dress, Accent: April disguises herself as a pizza delivery boy simply by wearing a coat, a hoodie over her head and talking in a deeper voice. It's good enough to fool the Purple Dragons, but not the Foot.
