While rewatching this, I realized... Razor's Ejektor Seat apparently has a homing function.
When he goes into the tower, he ejects (ejekts?) in the seat and crashes in through a window on what we later learn is the 145th floor.
After the first commercial break, we last see the seat sitting upright in the room Razor landed in, and he walks off. Thereafter, he encounters Callie and the two head to the roof (more on this in a second). There, after a scuffle with Viper, the two get picked up by T-Bone in the Turbokat... complete with Razor's seat, last seen on the 145th floor.
Also, judging by the pic above, Razor can stick his fingers through glass.
did Razor and Callie go to the roof? At the time they make this decision, they're in the air ducts on the 145th floor. Even before they get the idea to freeze the building, they're going to the roof for some reason. And even after
getting the idea, why head for the roof? The place that will have to be the main target for the tank of rocket coolant? The place where Viper is? The place T-Bone (repeatedly) tells Razor he can't get close enough to for an extraction? Going to the roof makes no
sense. And the only thing that happens when they get there is a fight with Viper that ends with Razor getting his butt kicked; if not for T-Bone's timing, Razor would've fallen 300 stories to the pavement.
But for whatever reason, they go, and act like they have
to go. The only point of no return is when they encounter the giant Plantimal in the central air shaft, which chases them up. Only then do they have
to go up. It would've made more sense if they were originally looking for some other way out, intent on avoiding the roof entirely, and the encounter in the air shaft is what forces them to go upwards.
Also, interesting how, despite all of T-Bone's claims, the flying Plantimals left the Turbokat alone long enough for him to both rescue Razor and
get Callie. Where were they during the rooftop confrontation? I know the walking Plantimals* on the roof couldn't see the Turbokat rising up, but the flying ones should have!
*We really need this episode's script or model sheets to learn what to call the very different types of Plantimals. There are so many radically different-looking kinds that just "Plantimals" is insufficient sometimes, and I hate saying "walking Plantimal," and "flying Plantimals" and "giant Plantimal," especially the third one, as I then have to specify whether I mean the one guarding the front door, or the one in the air shaft.
Also, I found this odd:
One of the very few instances that suggests Megakat City has any law enforcement besides the Enfocers. And, it being an early episode, the designers and animators still haven't quite gotten the hang of "K instead of C," so it isn't "M.K.P.D.," it's "M.C
.P.D." There are three explanations:1.
By "M.C.P.D.," they mean the Enforcers, as in early episodes, the Enforcers are sometimes called the police (Razor's "Try the police band" in The Metallikats
There is a regular police which we never see.3.
going to be a regular police force in addition to the Enforcers, but they were phased out in pre-production, with little things like this being all that remains of their existence in the show.
#1 is the most likely, especially considering, their very specific name aside, the Enforcers are
police. Similarly, Feral says "the authorities are handling this," not "the Enforcers are handling this" in The Giant Bacteria
. So I'm willing to bet almost any references to police or authorities in early episodes are meant to refer to the Enforcers.
#2 is the least likely. Even if they don't handle large-scale threats, you'd think after so many episodes we'd see some evidence of them besides police tape. #3 I can kinda see, but I'd need some further comment from the writers or the Tremblays or whoever first.
this guy seen very briefly in The Pastmaster Always Rings Twice
, but he could be anything from a weirdly recolored Enforcer officer, to some kind of meter reader or a guard for one of the nearby buildings; any job requiring a uniform and peaked cap.
There are also these cars, which show up with the Enforcer Sergeant's cruiser at the museum. However T-Bone says "the Enforcers are here," so I think they're just a type of Enforcer car we never see again.
