Billy falls for a girl named Marge, whom he must rescue after she gets sucked into another dimension by the evil Madame Woe.
Well, we’re at the Youth Center again. There’s a dance coming up, and the Rangers are busy putting up decorations. Bulk arrives on a skateboard and collides with Ernie’s cake, ruining it – a shame because it actually looked rather delicious. Ernie scolds both Bulk AND Skull and bans them from the establishment until they pay for the cake.
Zack wants to teach Billy some dance moves to impress the ladies. “No thanks,” says Billy “I’m not really interested in engaging feminine attention through bodily gyrations.”
As Billy heads for the exit, he bumps into a girl, and cheesy saxaphone music starts to play. Her name is Marge, and she’s just as nerdy as Billy; the other Rangers watch with glee as she asks him out. “Looks like a match made in heaven,” says Zack.
Elsewhere, we see some weird costumed lady at a rocky beach – Madame Woe – whom Rita calls on for assistance. “I am honored to do your evil deed,” says Woe.
Madame Woe finds Marge at a park and mistakes her for a Power Ranger. It’s funny how this scene alternates between American and Japanese footage. It’s pretty obvious that Woe isn’t in the same place as Marge.
Woe uses her forehead jewel to zap Marge into another dimension. What does this dimension look like? It’s pretty bare, actually, with only a couple trees.
Billy shows up to the park with a bouquet of flowers and finds Marge’s fallen necklace on the ground. This reminds me a lot of Willy’s disappearance from the Eye Guy episode. It’s even the same park!
Putties show up, but they patiently wait for Billy to call the other Rangers for help before beating the crap out of him. The Rangers show up, there’s a fight scene, the Putties disappear.
Zordon summons the Rangers to the Command Center. He confirms that Marge was indeed kidnapped by Madame Woe: “She controls wind, rain, heat, and cold with the energy of her crown jewel, which also has the power to send people into different dimensions.”
The only way the Rangers can defeat Woe is by combining their powers. Don’t they usually do that anyway? This time it’s different. They have to combine their Power Coins and give all their power to one person. Billy volunteers.
The Rangers morph and teleport to some cliffs, where Woe doesn’t waste time in sending them to the other dimension. There, Billy reunites with Marge, but Woe shows up hankering for a fight. Why doesn’t she just leave the Rangers in that dimension?
The Rangers take out their coins and combine them – “Morph to the power of one.” Billy gets the power and turns into a ball of light. He escapes the dimension and fights Woe one-on-one, yanking off her jewel and smashing it with his fingers, which frees Marge and the other Rangers.
The Rangers end the fight by combining their Power Weapons and firing the Power Blaster at Madame Woe, destroying her.
At the dance, Marge tells Billy that she’s grateful the Power Rangers saved her, especially the blue one. He returns her necklace, and she reciprocates with a kiss.
Bulk and Skull are dressed up conspicuously as the Marx Brothers, but Ernie sees right through their disguises and tries to kick them out. “That cake cost me money. Money you owe me now.” Bulk pays his debt with smelly cash he pulls out from between his toes. Ernie faints from the smell and lands face first on another cake.
The first thing I noticed about this episode was the title and its lack of an Oxford Comma. Boo!
Madame Woe was a more interesting villain than usual. For one, she’s the first female monster-of-the-day the Rangers have had to fight. Also, like Knasty Knight and Ticklesneezer, she wasn’t created by Finster’s Monster Matic. The fight with Madame Woe itself was underwhelming, though, with yet another deus ex machina saving the day.
Again we get an episode focused on Billy, this time with a romantic interest in the form of Marge. It wasn’t bad and was actually…well, I wouldn’t say it’s charming, but it’s somewhere between charming and not charming. The only problem is that Marge, like so many guest characters we’ve seen in the past, will never appear again.
Nothing really special here. Just move along.
