has taken Leo, Mike and the Cyborg to his ship that orbits the Earth. As Vanguard explains to Leonardo that he's a soldier from another galaxy sent here to guard Earth against invasion from his people's enemy, Mike arrives and presents to the pair his newfound squeeze - a female mutant turtle who loves to smooch! Vanguard gets angry and yells at the girl "turtle", named Lurch
, to change back to its natural form. Mike is shocked as his "girlfriend" transforms from being his idea of a hot date into a shambling mass that appears to be a rough statue made of wet clay. Vanguard explains that Lurch is a morphling, an artificial being created in a lab - it has the intelligence of a dog and spends most of its time trying to escape, but it apparently took a shine to Mikey - who asks if there's any Draino that he can gargle with.
