Episode Summary

The Delightful Children kidnap the team's classmate, nerdy, spit-talking "Leaky" Leona, and force her to lead them to the dark underbellies of the school. Alerted by Numbuh 5, the team follows them, and find themselves in an ancient school, laden with deadly booby traps. Avoiding them all, the team finds Leona, strangely aged to an old woman, who leads them to the mythical Fountain of Youth! The KND are amazed at the prospect of remaining ten years old forever, but the Delightful Children desire nothing less than to destroy the Fountain, claiming that the goal of all children should be to grow up. Can the Kids Next door save the supernatural spring? And what strange secret is "Leaky" Leona hiding?moreless

      • Numbuh 4: Okay, run this by me again. Why are we risking our lives to save Leaky Leona?!

    • NOTES (13)

    • ALLUSIONS (2)

      • Leona: You... have to find the fountain...
        This is a reference to the game Golden Sun, likely. There's a point quite late on when you find a man who's lived to be over 150. He tells you he's lived off magical draught, and is almost dead from a recent lack of it. You are then sent to get it, in a similar way that Leona said that line.

      • Fountain Of Youth Secret Passage: Harry Potter
        There is a secret passage in the girl's bathroom activated by turning a knob on the sink. It's probably a reference to Harry Potter And The Chamber Of Secrets.
