(Marvel Comics I#1000/22) - Representing the Intergalactic Network, Tana'ri Dana'e approached the Guardians of the Galaxy Groot and Rocket Raccoon in an effort to interview them. As she began the interview, Dana'e introduced her viewers to Groot and his "little furry sidekick," Rocket. Rocket immediately took umbrage at being called a "furry sidekick" but Dana'e ignored Rocket's protests to focus on Groot. Reminding viewers that Groot had saved the galaxy numerous times and been voted Intergalactic Network's Sexiest Nonhuman, Dana'e asked Groot why he did what he did.
Groot replied with "I am
Groot.," prompting Rocket to argue that they did not do what they did
to bring honor between species but rather, for the money and fame.
Attempting to ignore Rocket's second outburst, Dana'e motioned the
microphone back to Groot, who again stated "I am Groot.," prompting
Rocket to again argue that they did their work for money and fame not
for the kids. Groot then again remarked "I am Groot." to Dana'e, who
swooned over Groot as Rocket stormed off, tossing Dana'e microphone to
the ground and pronouncing the interview over, as they did not do what
they did to be a good role model. Still insisting they worked only for
money and fame, Rocket walked completely off the set as Groot showed a
young alien boy how to make a heart shape with his hands, prompting
Dana'e to fall to the ground in love for Groot.
