Episode Summary

Operation: L.O.V.E. / Operation: C.O.U.C.H.
Operation: L.O.V.E.: Numbuh 3 stars in a romantic musical (a la West Side Story). But when Numbuh 4 interrupts the play, it becomes a real war on stage between the Delightful Children and the KND. Operation: C.O.U.C.H.: Numbuh 4 tricks the other KND into going to China, falsely claiming there's trouble at Sector C. He does this so he can spend the time watching TV. But when Numbuh 3 stays behind as well, the two battle over the TV remote, which gets lost when it drops down the sofa. Numbuh 4 dives in after it, then finds himself in an unusual world where he meets the Daves, a bunch of guys who love watching TV themselves and the remote control is a sacred item. Numbuh 4 has to challenge the Emperor Dave if he wants his precious remote back. Will he be able to win the struggle to reclaim it?moreless

  • West Side Story-KIDS NEXT DOOR STYLE!!!

    I love this episode! Not only does it showcase Numbah 3's AMAZING singing voice (and her actress' talents too) but it offers a twist on West Side Story, an already awesome Broadway show. Also, we get a tiny hint to Wally's feelings for Kuki here, before the Children (how'd they all fit in that one jacket?! And what'd they bribe the director with to cast them in the lead and get that giant thingummybob in? But, I'm thinking too hard...) kiss her for the final number. I also LOVED Nigel's getup here, in true West Side gang mockup--he looks so cute, don't you think?moreless
  • A really good episode

    Operation: L.O.V.E.

    It starts with Number 3 singing about she\\\'s in love and goes \\\'outside\\\' to meet her \\\'love\\\' the DCFDTL. right before they kiss(how would they do that anyway?) number 4comes and throws them away and almost says that he loves her (for the like, 15th time) but then gets told it\\\'s a play and they have a big fight with the DCFDTL. when they beat them, number 3 is upset because she couldn\\\'t do the final duet, so number 4 says he\\\'ll do it, but halfway through walks out in disgust.The End

    Operation: C.O.U.C.H.

    While numbers 1,2,3 and 5 are watching KNN, number 4 bursts in and says that there\\\'s an emergency in sector C, in china. Everyone runs out, but number 4 comes back in and starts watching \\\"the manly man yelling and dropping heavy things hour\\\" on t.v. Unfortunately number 3 decides to watch \\\"the rainbow monkey\\\'s caring and sharing hour\\\" and after a short fight over the remote, it goes in the air and falls in the couch. Number 4 instantly dives into the couch and accidently falls into, kind of a parallel couch world, to fid a civilisation of Daves in there, who claim that until number 4 becomes emperor of the land, he can not caress the holy remote. so number 4 and emperor Dave have a dust bunny race, leading to a \\\"mine\\\"\\\"no mine\\\" fight over the remote, causing number 3 to come in and snatch the remote out of anger at the constantly changing channels, but this angers the Daves, because a girl can never touch the remote. In the end, number 4 and 3 fall into a crevass running from dust bunnies, who follow them down, and end up in China, wouldn\\\'t you know it, leading to a happy ending from numbers 1,2 and 5 rescue.

    Operation : L.O.V.E.

    I consider it the ultimate "Numbuh Three Episode".It takes plase in the school gimnasium cleverly converted into a big stage, on which the romantic musical "West-side story" is played.Num.3 is the girl which is in love with a boy from

    " the other side "(played from the DCFDTL) .But, as Num.2 sais "We're in the middle of a gang war" it soon turns to a real war between Sector V and the Delightful Children...

    Operation : C.O.U.C.H.

    In this episode Numbuh Four makes a false alarm to make the rest of the team leave so he can watch a very outrageous program.But to his surprise Numbuh Three stayes and insists they watch her "Rainbow Monkey" channel.So a fight for the remote beguins.But it falls under the couch and Num.4 goes to get it, but he meets the Dave community living in his couch.(Odd how such a big ''city'' can fitt in the space under the place that Sector V put their "tushies"(I can't imagine how they breathe down there when someone farts).

    Now he has to get it back...moreless

    Operation: L.O.V.E

    This was the first episode of I watched of this season. I LoVE this episode. Numbuh 1 looks cool with those 2-shade glasses and you actually see numbuh 5 with jeans! It's great!

    I especially LOVE the ending with numbuh 4 cheering up numbuh 3 by telling her that he'd sing the duet with her! And after he told her to forgwt the whole thing during the song she told him to come back and she told him that he looked ADORABLE!!

    Operation: C.O.U.C.H

    This episode was also very good. Numbuh 4 and numbuh 3 were fighting over the remote. Then the remote went into the couch so numbuh 4 went in to retrieve the remote. I didn't like those "Dave" guys though. They were stupid. But nonetheless this episode was great!

    I LOVE them both!!!moreless
  • Operation L.O.V.E.- Numbuh 3 stars in the school's "West Side Story" like play. Soon everything goes out-of-whack and a battle scence erupts. Operation C.O.U.C.H.- Numbuh 4 loses the couch's remote after fighting over it with Numbuh 3. Themoreless

    Operation L.O.V.E - I found this episode hilarious. I loved how Four just randomly jumps onto the stage oblivious to the production going on. The ending was quite funny too. Also, I loved the plays "West Side Story" resemblance. Overall, It was the best episode I have seen as of yet. I'll give it a 10.

    Operation C.O.U.C.H.- The beginning was quite funny and sorta unexpected. I loved how they actually went to China, to fight against the emergency. The Roman world was pretty cool too, but I thought it got choppy in the "couch world". Couldn't they extend it by one measley minute to explain it a little more. I'll give it a 8.moreless

    • Goof: In Operation: L.O.V.E., When Numbuh 2 jets up to the rafters, the boy who's working the spotlights is first seen with dark hair, wearing a black shirt and shorts with gray sneakers. But in the closeup shot after he lands, the boy is seen with light brown hair and is wearing an orange shirt and red shorts with white-and black-colored sneakers.

  • QUOTES (9)

    • (The opening song in Operation L.O.V.E.) :
      Numbuh 3:
      What is this feeling?
      That I hope will never pass
      What is this feeling?
      That mom thinks is just gas

      It makes me queasy, so uneasy
      and just a little funky
      Like a giant huggy wuggy
      Smiling Rainbow Monkey

      I never cared so much before
      More then I loved Stuffed Animals
      Now my life happiness galore
      My heart flies like the um...Seagulls

      What can it be?
      This mystery?
      Happening to me?
      Can my friends see?
      I'm happily in love

      I've said it
      Isn't that so cute?
      I've said it
      Really really sweet
      I've said it
      Like yummy fresh fruit
      I've said it

      I'm so in love
      My heart is full
      I'm so in love
      It's adorable
      I'm sooooooooooo in love.

    • (After the opening song)
      Boy: Hey, toots. What time is it?
      Numbuh 3: Time to follow my HEART!
      Boy: No, seriously. What time is it? I gotta be home for dinner at six.

    • (The KND airship crashes into the Sector C treehouse where two of the Chinese KND are calmly eating)
      Numbuh 1: Don't worry fellow Kids Next Door. Sector V has heard your distress call and we're here to help.
      Girl: (speaking in Chinese) What did he say?
      Boy: (also in Chinese) I think they need the toilet or something. (The girl points the way and Numbuhs 1, 2, and 5 charge into action with KND vacuum gadgets as Numbuhs 3 and 4 spring out from a sofa in an adjacent room with the giant dust bunnies after them)
      Numbuh 1: Let's clean house, guys! (He vacuums one dust bunny and the others finish the job offscreen while the Chinese KND continue eating)
      Numbuh 1: (After Sector V returns to the airship before flying away) No need to thank us. We're happy to help.
      Boy: (speaking in Chinese) Crazy Americans.
      Girl: (also in Chinese) You got that right, dude.

    • Emperor Dave: Hope you got enough stomach to play the game, kid. Because I have plenty of stomach to spare. Whu-hoo!

    • One Dave: Okey-dokey-artichokey! Your challenge is a chariot race driven by near wild dust...(one of the dust bunnies roars and covers him with dust)...bunnies. Whoever snatches he most holy remote and keeps possession of it until the end of the race will be crowned emperor. (slight pause) Oh, and the loser gets dumped down (switching to a more ominous tone) THE CREVASSE THAT LEADS TO THE BOTTOM OF THE WORLD. (returns to the more happy tone Any quest-arinos?
      Numbuh 4: Yeah, who came up with such a dumb, stupid, cruddy challenge?!
      One Dave: (looking at Emperor Dave) It is kinda stupid, isn't it. But, hey, hey, don't look at me. I'm with stupid!
      Emperor Dave: Guilty as charged! (Laughs)

    • Numbuh 4: You're the emperor that lives in my couch?
      Emperor Dave: Not a bad job, eh? Though sometimes I can't tell if I'm working hard or hardly working! (The Daves laugh)

    • Numbuh 4 (not really singing his line in the ending song with Numbuh 3): We're just the cutesy, wutesy, lutesiest pair.

    • Numbuh 1: You know, Delightful Dorks, you should take your show on the road, because you're smashed.
      Delightfuls: A SMASH! The expression is, "A SMASH"!
      (The Delightfuls look up as scaffolding, weakened during the battle, falling apart. It drops and smashes the Delightfuls' battle walker)
      Numbuh 1: That's not the expression I was thinking of.

    • Random Parent: (in the audience) Oh, that's my girl up there, avoiding deadly laser blasts! (another parent takes a picture with her camera)

  • NOTES (7)


    • KND Nighty News

      This is a spoof off of NBC Nighty News.

    • The musical in Operation: L.O.V.E. bears a strong resemblence to the classic musical West Side Story, which includes Numbuh 2's line "When You're a Jet, You're a Jet", one of the songs from that musical.
