While the Land Bounty is traveling towards the Castle of Ice, Jay is playing Lava Zombies on an Arcade Cabinet in an attempt to teach Krag how to play, but the Yeti does not understand and he attempts to steal the game from Jay. Annoyed, Jay tries to get Cole to reason with Krag, but Cole simply states how he doesn't understand Yeti and points out how Krag was capable of harming Jay, at which Jay nervously allows Krag to play. Shortly after, Cole attempts to get Krag to stop playing, but he refuses, at which Cole threatens the Yeti that he would revoke Krag's video game privileges should he continue, after which Krag reluctantly leaves the game behind.
