* Splinter. Donatelo often puts too much burden on himself. Sometimes the best solution only arrives when you take a step back from the problem.
* Raph: Are we gardeners or ninjas? How we gonna stop that thing?
* Raph: I can’t believe he really came up with the right antidote.
April: I guess he really does have a photographic memory.
Synopsis: Donnie is working in his lab. Mikey distracts him and ruins days of work. Donnie leaves and everything starts falling off the shelves. A jar has cracked and Mikey does not realize it. All the contents seep out. Something weird grows. It appears plant like. It hears the turtles practicing. Raph beats Donnie soundly. Donnie was distracted. He talks with April about losing to Raph. Donnie and April go back to his lab. It’s destroyed and Donnie is really angry. Donnie calls Mikey Raph. That was not normal. Donnie has a bad headache. April gets an ice pack for Donnie. April doesn’t know what’s wrong. Leo is practicing in the dojo and the creep shows up. Leo screams for help. He passes out. The rest of the turtles and Splinter arrive. The turtles all get beaten, so Splinter steps in and demolishes him. The turtles realize that when stuff got knocked over in the lab the creep was revitalized. It also took the snakeweed claw. Donnie really is quite distracted and spaced out. Raph gets angry and takes charge. Donnie causes the shell razer to stop working. While April fixes it, Donnie disappears. They track down the creep. It’s got the claw and it seems to have created a snakeweed offspring. Raph tries to fight the creep but he doesn’t fight back. Finally he does. Mikey comes up with a plan that might actually work. Donnie is really not himself. They try to lead the creep to the shell razer. She runs them over with the shell razer and then blows them up. Back in the lair, Donnie’s mentality continues to deteriorate. Mikey goes back into Donnie’s lab to try and make it right. They finally notice that Mikey is missing and find him in the lab. Donnie actually drinks the concoction. It doesn’t seem to help. Suddenly, the whole place shakes like an earthquake. When they check what’s going on top side they see a giant plant growing quickly. The creep and snakeweed have managed to combine and it’s out of control. April asks Splinter to try the healing mantra but he doesn’t think it will help. They find a whole bunch of humans captured and being fed off of. Mikey goes into action. They attempt to kill it with fire but that doesn’t work. Leo’s oxygen comes out and he passes out. Raph get captured but frees himself. Then his oxygen tank stops working. Mikey is the only one left. He nearly defeats it but Donnie returns. He’s made a retromutagen weed killer and it works. Donnie tells Mikey that his antidote worked. Donnie locks the last piece of creepweed in a box.
