    • (At the hallways of Middleton High) Ron: So, it wasn't really the haircut that made me popular, what people saw was confidence. So I lose the haircut, keep the confidence and I'm chatzy! (notices Amelia) Hey, Amelia! We're still on for after school? Amelia: After school... with you? And you are? Geek out? Ron: But, come on it's, it's me! It's Ron. What so I... so I ditched the do, it's what inside that's matter, right? ...right? Amelia: Who told you that, loser? (Amelia walks away, and Ron walks back to Kim's locker while Rufus jumps out to Ron) Kim: See? Someone likes you just the way you are!

    • (Ron enters the room where Kim is just barely avoiding the spinning tops of doom) Ron: Kim! (grabs a metal stick) Get down! (throws the stick at the spinning top of doom, and it runs into another one, destroying both) Kim: Thanks! (the rest of the spinning tops of doom breaks) Never, never tell anyone to go out and buy spinning tops of doom! (Señor Senior Senior runs out of the room) You gotta be careful about what you say, Ron. I mean, one little thing... Ron: Like you need a new hairstyle? Kim: Yeah! (with a apologizing tone) Like that.... sorry. Ron: Do you know what the worst thing is? Pleather doesn't breathe! (We hear a motorboat sound as Señor Senior Senior makes his escape) Kim: A secret grotto and a speed boat! Great for escapes! Ron: You know, I am so not talking to anyone ever again. Kim: Come on. Let's ace this place.

    • (Señor Senior Junior is pressing some buttons) Sr. Senior Jr: I have to launch his stupid missiles! (the missile tubes open) Ron: Step away from the console! Sr. Senior Jr: Or step away from your bossy attitude. You think just because you're so nicely dressed... (Ron jumps on him and they fight by ruffing each other's hair; Ron does it to Señor Senior Junior, and begins to press the control panel for the missiles) Sr. Senior Jr: No, you don't! (Senõr Senior Junior breaks Ron's comb) Ron: Oh, you are gonna pay! (They start to fight for Junior's comb and Ron looks at his reflection in the glass wall) Ron: Huh? (pause) Look at me. What have I become? Sr. Senior Jr: I do not know. What? (Rufus rubs Ron's hair back to the normal style) Ron: My Ron-nes! I... I feel it! Yeah! This look... works! Sr. Senior Jr: What look? Let me see. But your hair is all messy, it's so... so... Ron: Totally me! (Rufus kicks Junior's comb down towards the water) Sr. Senior Jr: Ahhhh! Ron: Woah, the stairs! Use the stairs!

    • (Kim and Ron run until they find a huge power cord) Ron: Is that what I think it is? Kim: That's how he's draining the power. Come on, let's get this settled. Ron: How are you planning on getting inside? Kim: The door. (Kim knocks on the door) Señor Senior Senior, open up! (Kim and Ron enter the lair) Sr. Senior Sr.: Ah, Kim Possible, my feisty teen... Ron: Hey, you put in a lagoon! Sr. Senior Sr.: The pirahna won't be here 'till Monday, but I assure you, the koi have not been fed in days. I ordered this book on world domination off the internet. Huh, it said you would be coming back Kim: Have you gotten to the chapter where you give yourself up? Sr. Senior Sr.: No, actually, I'm up to the part where I tell you "that it is too late for you to stop my evil plan". Ron: (Ron notices red dot on his face) Oh man, I've got a zit in my nose. Kim: Will you get over yourself? Ron: You do too, right there. Kim: Self-activating lasers! (Kim jumps away with Ron just as two lasers fire) (to Ron) threw in some traps. Ron: Hey, on the positive side, this guy is clearly a terrific listener! (Kim and Ron are running away from the lasers, and they hide) Kim: Señor Senior Senior is really starting to get on my nerves! Ron: Should pleather lose it's sheen so quickly? Sr. Senior Sr.: Kim Possible! Here is a good target: Middleton. I'm going to attack your hometown! Junior, go to the tower and activate the missiles. Sr. Senior Jr: Oh, now I am your missile launching person too? Ron: Junior just split! Kim: I'll deal with Senior, you go after Junior! (Ron runs away, Kim takes Rufus out of her pocket) Keep an eye on him. The old Ron may still be inside there somewhere.

    • (Kim and Ron is climbing up the Senior's island) Ron: So then Amelia ran up and said "Brad Pitt!", but she tapped me on the shoulder, and... Kim: Ron, we're sneaking here! Ron: Sorry. Brad Pitt, though. Kim: Wooah! (The Seniors have built barbed wire and giant searchlights on top of the wall) Ron: Double woah! He's been busy! Kim: (drags Ron down) Get down! Kim: (notices missiles in the wall) Oh, good. Missiles. I'm so glad you told him to get missiles! Ron: Oh, so I made a few suggestions. Does that make it my fault? Kim: 100 percent!

    Trivia (15)

    • When we saw Kim's locker after she told Rufus that he could live in her locker, there was a picture of Ron hanging between the pictures of Shego and Drakken. When Kim opened the locker at the end of the episode, and Rufus jumps out of Kim's locker, his picture is gone.

    • When Kim is getting thanked by the female pilot for helping them earlier, the male pilot's eyes are blue, with no pupils. When he says his line after that, he has only the pupils in his eyes with no color. When Ron comes in, his eyes are suddenly blue, with the pupils as well.

    • This is one of four episodes where Ron changes his image to get more popular, with the other three being All The News, Ron the Man, and Ron Millionaire.

    • When Ron's fighting the spinning tops of doom, there's a shadow on the wall on the other side of the doorway behind him, but in the next shot, it's gone.

    • When Kim and Ron are sneaking into the Seniors' lair, Ron is wearing mission clothes. When they confront the Seniors however, he has somehow changed back into his new outfit.

    • Julio and Enrique Iglesias: Señor Senior, Sr. is a parody to Julio Iglesias, while his son, Señor Senior, Jr., is a parody to Enrique Iglesias.

    • Fantasy Island:

      The private island locale is a nod to Ricardo Montalban's (voice of Señor Senior Sr.) previous role on the show Fantasy Island.

    • James Bond:

      There are several noticeable references to James Bond:

      1. The private island is a dig at the preferred hideout of most Bond villains, especially Francis Scaramanga in The Man with the Golden Gun. The giant sunlamp is also a reference to that movie. Scaramanga's scheme involved solar power.

      2. The design theme of the interior of the Seniors' home reflects that of Dr. No.

    • Ron: You've got doors that go -- that go "whoosh"!

      This is a nod to Toy Story, where Woody tries to make Buzz feel better about himself and one of his comments is, "Your helmet does that, that... "whoosh" thing!"

    • Señor Senior, Sr.: I like the "whoosh," it's the door saying "I am closed."

      The doors sound just like the doors in Star Trek when they open and close. Ricardo Montalban, who is the voice of Señor Senior, Sr., played Khan in the original Star Trek series and in the movie, The Wrath of Khan.
