I had the exact same reaction upon hearing Jou make that comment, in spite of never having seen more than a few clips from the dub. I was just really bizarre and forced.That part really bothered me, too. Several people have commented on how Jou's portrayal in this series is closer to the dub's more neurotic take on him. That moment, though, inserting such a bad joke into such a serious life-or-death situation, was exactly the sort of thing the dub would do. It stood out unpleasantly in an otherwise decent episode.(Although the Jou gag about his scores dropping felt out of place and weird.)
The episode wasn't as enjoyable as the last one, but feels like it is leading up to something potentially more interesting. Let's see if it pays off. I genuinely think we will see WarGreymon and MetalGarurumon next episode, which I really hope I'm not right about because that might indicate another batch of boring evolution episodes incoming.
