Episode Recap

Operation: D.O.G.H.O.U.S.E.: Sector V were playing some sport that involved throwing a cinder block around (as you do) and it accidentally got thrown into a house window (on the gigantic doghouse from the blog). Numbuh 5 went in to get it but was taking her time, and the others were getting worried. Then they heard a scream so they went in and Numbuh 5 was lying on the ground as though she'd fallen down the stairs, and claimed to not know what had just happened. But she had the cinder block so they went back out. Later, back at the Treehouse, Numbuh 4 was struggling with his homework, so Numbuh 5 agreed to help him out (you 4/5 fans are gonna love it) but the next day when Numbuh 4 was about to hand in his homework it was gone. Numbuh 5 was acting unusually freaked out (she was even in tears a couple of times) but later Numbuh 4 went into the doghouse to get his homework back (turns out it's Valerie and Mrs Thompson's hideout, as you've probably guessed) and while there, Numbuh 5 apologised to him and explained that it was her bringing his homework here so that she could be turned back to normal. It turns out that Numbuh 5 was turned into a weredog at the beginning, but eventually they get Numbuh 4's homework back and Numbuh 5 was cured. But in school the next day Numbuh 4 got yet another triple F minus, not because he didn't hand it in but because he's just stupid. Operation: P.L.A.N.E.T.: Numbuh 74.239 announces in Launch Control that Numbuhs 3 and 4 are to be launched into deep space in an experimental flight to break the "Ridiculous" space barrier. If it's successful, Kids will be able to colonize places outside the solar system. While Numbuh 3 is munching on a big bucket of popcorn, Numbuh 2 pulls Numbuh 4 aside and tells him that he "has to tell her". Numbuh 4 flatly refuses, but Numbuh 2 insists "She needs to know". As the two astronauts sit in the cockpit preparing to take off, Wally hesitantly tries to tell Kuki something important, but she's distracted by the countdown. After take off and acceleration to "Ridiculous Speed" both operatives black out. Numbuh 4 wakes up, on a patch of sand next to a tropical lagoon where he watches his ship sink. He calls for help on his communicator and sets out to find Numbuh 3. As he walks through the foliage he is pursued and eventually captured. Numbuh 4 wakes again to find himself the captive of two Rainbow Monkey psychologists who ask him cognitive questions to understand how he thinks. Eventually he is taken away by soldier Rainbow Monkeys and put on trial for being a boy. During the legal process he discovers Numbuh 3, who is called to testify against him (Unfortunately she thinks it's all pretend). After her testimony he is condemned to be "hugged to death". Numbuh 3 and Numbuh 4 escape from the courthouse and get to a rocket provided by the two Rainbow Monkey psychologists. When it fails to launch the two discover that all the Rainbow Monkeys are actually animatronics in a theme-park on Earth. As the two young astronauts walk out of the park, Wally tries once more to tell Kuki what she "needs" to know. He blushes as he clasps her hand, and she smiles and blushes as he explains....... that she has a popcorn kernel stuck in her teeth.
