Looks like O'Grady managed to walk off having a bomb detonate inside him.

He's a robot now, remember? Hood even said he would rebuild him.

I know he's a robot.
Robots can still explode.

Can "$8000 toilet seat" be explained? I think there was a joke about it in the first "Independence Day" movie, explaining how Area 51 was paid for.

The US military is famously innefficient, they pay a lot of money above market prices for a lot of ordinary items. Some of that is due to the military needing more stringent requirements for eg. perishability than the civilian market, most of it is probably just good ol' fashioned graft, but some of it is also a way to secret projects (or how much other projects actually cost) in the budget of innocous objects.

In GI Joe the funds used for the Invasion of Cobra Island which was *unknown to the Joes actually doing it* somewhat of a rogue op was earmarked for Basketballs.

On a tangent to that, a student at my college who'd been in one of the armed forces talked about how her unit were told to get rid of things, even in wasteful ways, just destroy things in some cases, by the end of a period of time because if her unit used less than they were allotted they'd get less money for the next period because it would look like they didn't need as much funding.

That's standard bureaucratic practice.

Cap should have known singing those Hydra marching songs in the shower would come back to haunt him. But they're so catchy.

... I doubt Hydra would approve of Wicked.

Edit: Except maybe the songs Wonderful and Sentimental Man.

"Where I Come From, We Believe All Sorts Of Things That Aren't True. We Call It History.
A Man's Called A Traitor
Or Liberator. A Rich Man's A Thief
Or Philanthropist. Is One A Crusader
or ruthless invader? It's all in which label
is able to persist.
There Are Precious Few At Ease
With Moral Ambiguities, So We Act As Though They Don't Exist."
