From "What You Seed is What You Get"
>"Okay picture dis! Da Boss is out on a mission out in da desert," explains Meowth as we see Giovanni in a pith helmet staring through binoculars as a nameless driver drives him through a forbidding desert, "He's tinking of building a new Team Rocket base in dat area.... but da desert's heat is getting tah be to much fer him, see! And just when he's going crazy from first, he sees the watermelons we perched their for him!"
"He slices one open," Meowth explains as we see Giovanni use HIS FUCKING HAND to slice up the melon, chow into the red meat and then spit out seeds to form a Team Rocket 'R' in the sand, "And he says, "I should reward Meowth and his friends for giving me dese fine watermelons!" HAHAHAHAHA!"
