Episode Quotes
Aku: As far as the eye can see the land is desolate and full of despair. Shadows draw across the earth and block out the light. Darkness oozes from every crevice. Hope has been eradicated; only terror reigns! And yet there is one who mocks my omnipresent evil with his existence. He possesses a sword which could destroy me. They call him... Samurai Jack!

Demongo: I am the Dealer of Destruction, the Merchant of Doom!

Demongo: You cannot win, samurai! I am more powerful!
Jack: A power fueled only by the strength and skill of the great warriors whose essence you have stolen, Demongo! Without that, you are nothing!
Demongo: Heh, heh, heh, heh, heh. You are wise, Samurai... but who cares?! Bleah!!

Aku: You have failed me, Demongo.
Demongo: No, Master, please forgive me!
Aku: Hmmm. (thinks about it) No! (crushes Demongo) Once again the saga continues.

Episode Goofs
When Demongo sends his warriors over the cliff to chase Jack, the animators "loop" the animation three times. Several warriors leap over the canyon edge out of sight to the left, and then run back from the right-hand side to leap out sight to the left, again...

and again...

and again.
