"This is like toy shopping with the thousand pound toddler!"

-Bruce Banner

"Betty hurt?"


"Betty say "No hurt Hulk". Why lie to Hulk?"


"No, that creature wasn't supposed to survive!"

-General Ross


-Rick Jones in his Hulk form

"I'm so sorry!"

-Grey Hulk, first lines


  • Voice cast lists 'Trubble' as Barking Dog.


  • General Ross' military jacked briefly appears when he talks to Betty while being handcuffed to the pole.
  • It makes very little sense for Talbot to reprimand Bruce after he saved his life.
  • Betty's sad monologue only delays an experiment that can save both Bruce and Hulk's lives. While it's understandable that she is distraught over her boyfriend's fate, she shouldn't do anything to hinder the experiment that is the only way to save him. She should have saved this monologue until after this experiment.
  • When General Ross sabotages the experiment, he stands very close to the machines he damages with fire extinguisher. He should have been blasted back by explosion.
  • General Ross must have poor eyesight since he easily mistook Rick-Hulk for real Hulk, even though Rick-Hulk has entirely different face, much longer hair and different clothes.
  • Before Bruce and Hulk are merged back, Bruce is barefoot but when he falls out of Nutrient Bath, he has black shoes on. Later, when Bruce follows Rick-Hulk, he is barefoot again.
  • When Rick-Hulk says "Banner!", his mouth doesn't move.
  • During her monologue at the end Betty completely disregards the fact that Hulk always cared for her and saved her life many times.

The original script of this episode called for Bruce and Betty to get married, but it was changed at the last minute.

The full moon in the background of Bruce's Grey Hulk transformation echoes the original comic book, where Bruce would transform every night at sunset.

Rick Jones being turned into a teenage Hulk and Bruce Banner changing into his Grey Hulk incarnation following a dip in the nutrient bath follows the original comic book storyline.

The wedding scene from this episode is loosely adapted from writer/artist John Byrne's final issue on the Incredible Hulk: number 319.
