  • An episode that could've, and should've been so much better. (A line I've used many times to describe most episodes from the 2nd half of Season 4.)

    • Drakken: (after looking through a peephole) It's ten times worse! It's my former cellmate: Frugal Lucre! Shego: You mean that dweeb who wanted a dollar from everyone by shutting down the Internet? False alarm. Drakken: Do not underestimate the annoyance factor, Shego. Shego: So, he really bugs you? Drakken: To the max! Now hide! (slips under the table) Ok, let's pretend we're not here, and maybe he'll leave. Frugal Lucre: Maybe who will leave? Drakken: Frugal... (hits head on the table) How did you get in?

    • (Kim and Shego are about to fight) Shego: So...small talk? Kim: Mmm...not so much. (they begin to fight)

    • (Shego appears in a blonde wig) Shego: Um...excuse me. But I seem to be um...uh, lost. (grumbles under her breath) And out of my mind.

    • (Shego and Drakken are looking for things to steal on the video screen) Shego: Okay. I give up. We've been at this all day. There's got to be something you want to steal. What's wrong with the Global Incinerator Ray? Drakken: It's Mundane. Shego: Quantum Gravity Drill? Drakken: BTDT. Shego: Been There, Done That? Drakken: Acronyms are very handy when texting one's BFFs.

    • (After the entire ordeal is over with) Ron: Ok, well, I have no idea what just happened. But I'm clearly not cut out to help people make life choices. Kim: Oh, I wouldn't be so sure. You helped me choose you. Ron: Ok, that time I was a genius. (Kim and Ron move in to kiss, and as they do, the screen cuts to Rufus, who gags and runs off) Ron: Hey, where's Rufus? (Rufus jumps into the mail tube and goes off)

    • Spiderman: When Ron says "With great pets, comes great responsibility", this is a play on the famous line spoken by Ben Parker in Spiderman.

    • Title: The Mentor of Our Discontent The episode's title is a reference to the phrase "winter of discontent," a common term historically used to describe a winter season in which tragic or controversial events take place (most commonly the British winter of 1978-79, which was riddled with trade union strikes). It is derived from the opening lines of William Shakespeare's Richard III: "Now is the Winter of our Discontent, made glorious summer by this son of York."
