Mr. Blik saves Gordon's life, making him (Gordon) serve him.
This is the first time we see Mr. Blik swinging his tail in front of us.
Gordon: FEAR NOT, BLIK! I'M ON MY WAY!!! (pan to a painting of a volcano) Oops. (walks to a door) FEAR NOT, BLIK! I'M ON MY WAY!!!
Sonic: do you need Knuckles'es Help?
Gordon: I repaired the jet, for you.
