Adam will know how I feel...

One of the most underrated scenes occurs in the season one He-Man episode "Quest for the Sword", as Teela and Ram Man get dangerously close to the truth about He-Man and Prince Adam. When two people are trying to hide a secret from others, they often want to appear as calm as they can, even when communicating with each other, and so the animators lack of expression on He-Man and Man-At-Arms works in the scripts favor! When Teela and Ram Man are brainstorming out loud, He-Man and Man-At-Arms remain perfectly motionless, expressionless, and calm, hoping to dispel any credence to the truth. When He-Man and Man-At-Arms look at each other, it is with the understanding that they must exhibit a calm exterior whilst becoming frantically worried inside. It is a riveting moment for all the characters involved...

This episode is loaded with stock footage, compared to many other episodes ... Probably the most intense looks we get from He-Man, in this one, include his worried expression after he attempts to clear the rock pile from the cave and when he is about to collide with Ram-Man, while swinging on the iron vine inside the cave!

Man-At-Arms' "save," in an attempt to change the "secret identity" subject, is great and well acted out, for this scene, when he suggests He-Man look for his sword, right away. :)

Thanks for posting and reading! God Bless...
