    Fast forward to Shegoton, where Shego rules the world and green is the new black. Kim and Ron must travel in time to team up with their now-grown up friends to destroy the Tempus Simian Monkey Idol and restore the space-time continuim before all ends up in chaos in the Future with Shego as the new world ruler which is a scary thought! My favorite part of this episode is when we see the present turn back to how it is supposed to be and when we see Ron scream "I hate meat cakes....don't know why I said that!" at the end.moreless
  • Wonderful!

    I loved this entire series! I saw on DVD, and in so saw it all together! I loved all the future characters, and the turn of finding it was not Drakken who took over the world, but Shego!



    Seeing the future tweebs was the best. They had grown so from when she saw them. I enjoyed every minute of this well written 3-parter.

    This episode was very well written. It was humors and action packed. All of the characters were pretty cool even the villians. The animation was great, and Ron and Shego really shined here. The episode over all was just brilliant. I loved it, it's one of my favorites. Loved it.
  • Kim, with Ron in tow, travels to future Middleton, where Shego has become the supreme ruler. Now they must team up with the future versions of their friends to bring her down and restore the time stream.moreless

    Kim and Ron go back to the “Future” in Part 3 of “A Sitch in Time”. One thing I loved about “Sitch” is that even though Kim, Drakken, Monkey Fist, Duff Killigan got top billing at first, it was the sidekicks who shined in the end. Nicole Sullivan was great as Shego, the egomaniac supreme one who took over the world and renamed Middleton to Shegoton, Will Friedle provided a lot of laughs, especially when Ron asked why everyone in the future was so buff. It was also an added bonus that Ron was the one who set things right in the end. One thing that “A Sitch in Time” had that “So the Drama” didn’t was hefty amount of special guest stars. Dakota Fanning as “Pre-K Kim”, Kelly Ripa as “Future Bonnie”, Micheal Dorn as “Rufus 3000”, Freddie Prinze, Jr. as “Future Tim and Jim, Vivica A. Fox as “Future Monique”, and Academy Award Nominee Michael Clarke Duncan as “Future Wade” were all enjoyable to listen to. The action scenes through out “Sitch” were well done, but they saved the best for last. The climatic battle was really fun and I notice that it was cut in a “Star Wars” kind of way, because there were three different battles going on at once. We had Rufus and the naked mole rats battling Fist and his monkey ninjas, Wade and the tweebs fighting Robo-Duff, and Kim and Monique combating a super buff Drakken. Ron even said a line about Robo-Duff that mirrors what Obi-Wan Kenobi said about Darth Vader in “Return of the Jedi”. In conclusion, all three episodes of “A Sitch in Time” was truly some of Loter and company’s best work, in any time period.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (5)

    • When this episode airs by itself instead of the movie, the scene where Ron asked Wade if he had a matter transporter is cut out.

    • When Jim says, "Sorry dude," the background of the center of the place is used.

    • In the Kimminator Mark 12, there's a closeup of two switches being flipped. In the wide shot where the third one should be flipped, Tim's finger moves to flip a switch, but is placed wrong, hovering over the other two rather than the third.

    • When Kim and Ron are discovered in the high school, Ron's freckles are all but missing around the time the cuffs come up.

    • When it goes back to the first day of school, and Kim says "Future?" (after Ron's "Brain freeze!"), her necklace becomes a triangular shape instead of a circle.

  • QUOTES (23)

    • (Shego grabs Kim to stop her from returning to the past.)
      Shego: No way!
      (Kim kicks Shego in the face.)
      Kim: Yes way!

    • (Ron keeps pointing fingers at Shego for being the cause of his problems)
      Drakken: Hey! No one touches the Supreme One! (Ron grabs Drakken by the arm) Whoa! (Ron flings Drakken across the room)

    • Ron: (To Shego) You are the reason why I had to eat meat cakes?!!

    • Ron: That's not fair!
      Shego: Maybe, but I got the muscle to prove it. (Drakken flexes his muscles.)

    • (After Time Monkey is destroyed and scene changes back to present)
      Ron: KP, our future is...(Wave of time goes through them; Kim and & he hold their heads) Oh, brain freeze.
      (Rufus shakes his head)
      Kim: The. . . the future?
      Ron: What was that, KP?
      Kim: Something. . . something about the future.
      Ron: Uh, yeah! I was saying the future is bright!
      Kim: Yeah, Ron. Yeah. It really is.
      Ron: Yep, and I hate meat cakes!
      Kim: Huh?
      Ron: No idea why I said that!

    • Ron: (To Future Wade, as they're walking through the sewer) Wade, don't you have something like a matter transporter? Can't you just beam us into Shego's palace?
      Future Wade: Sure, but your insides might wind up on the outside.
      Future Jim: It would be a great chance for you to meet your spleen.
      Ron: How would I even know it's my spleen?

    • Future Shego: An evil dictator always delegates. Dr D, you're on!
      Kim: You're gonna have Drakken fight us?
      Ron: As a last line of defense? That is weak sauce!
      (Drakken appears and flexes his huge muscles)
      Future Drakken: Who are you calling weak?
      Ron: Now see? Everyone in the future is ripped!

    • Monkey Fist: They are just mole rats!
      Rufus 3000: Naked Mole Rats!

    • Attitude Adjustment Center Sign: Obey the Supreme One

    • Robo-Duff: Now they call me: Robo-Duff, the world's deadliest cyborg golfer!
      Kim: Wow, now that's a mouth full.
      Ron: And really. How many other cyborg golfers are there? It can't be a very crowded field.

    • Robo-Duff: (laughs evilly) Never count out the world's deadliest cyborg golfer! Aye, you're right. It is a mouthful.

    • Rufus 3000: Rufus Prime, please, share your wisdom. What is the meaning of life?
      Rufus: Cheese!
      (All applaud)
      Future Rufus: (to another Future Rufus): You owe me a buck.

    • Kim: It's Wade!
      Ron: And he's a giant!
      Wade: Heh. I had a growth spurt.

    • Drakken: What should I do with her?
      Shego: Nothing's on TV. . . well, (chuckles) except me. Let's make her suffer.

    • Kim: Someone loves herself a little too much!

    • Ron: Sewers? Ah man, there's a whole rainbow of smells down here!

    • Future Jim: Eat hot plasma, Supreme One stooges.
      Future Tim: Vive la Résistance.
      Ron: Hey, Norwegian.

    • Future Jim: Get ready to bolt, Kim.
      Future Tim: We'll handle Robo-Doof.
      Robo-Duff: Robo-Duff, not doof.
      Future Jim: Says you.

    • Ron: Be honest, does the costume work without the hat?
      Kim: Ron, it didn't work with the hat.

    • Kim: Monkey Fist, you're working for Shego, too?
      Monkey Fist: Well. I don't get a paycheck if that's what you mean...

    • Drakken: I've got fab abs!
      Kim: This is so wrong.

    • Monkey Fist: All right, Rodentia. Let me show you what a true master of Monkey Kung Fu can do.

    • Rufus 3000: Flee, cowards!
      Rufus: Ha-ha! High five!
      Rufus 3000: (after high-fiving Rufus, knocking him off-screen) Sorry, Rufus Prime! Sorry!

  • NOTES (1)

    • Animation Production by: Starburst Animation Co., Ltd
      First aired as part of the Disney Channel TV movie A Sitch in Time (11/28/03).

  • ALLUSIONS (9)

    • The Terminator:

      The name of Tim and Jim's ship, the Kiminator, is a play off of Arnold Shwarzenegger's The Terminator, in which a race of machines has taken over the world in the future and has sent a machine back in time to eliminate the man who will eventually lead the human race to freedom, similar to the plot in this movie. Since that movie, practically anything Arnold touches gets stuck with the "-inator" suffix.

    • Star Trek: The Next Generation:

      Before stepping into the time portal to head to the future, Kim says to Rufus 3000, "Let's Warp!...or whatever you call it." The deeply-toned actor who voices Rufus 3000 is the great Michael Dorn. He is most famous for portraying the stern Klingon, Lieutenant Worf, in Star Trek: The Next Generation, in which space was travelled at "warp" speed.

    • Planet of the Apes:

      When Ron discovers that the ruins in Shegoton are those of Bueno Nacho, his reaction is quite reminiscent of Charlton Heston finding the Statue of Liberty in Planet of the Apes.

    • Future Tim: I'm Sonny Tim. He's Sonny Jim.

      This is a reference to Jim Henson's Muppet comedy "Muppet Treasure Island", in which a dying Billy bones grabs Gonzo by the nose and says "Oh, Jimmy-Jim-Jim-Jim-Jim" to which Gonzo responds "I'm not Jimmy-Jim-Jim-Jim-Jim, he's Jimmy-Jim-Jim-Jim-Jim".

    • War of the Worlds:

      The small drones used to carry Ron and Kim to the "Attitude Adjustment Center" are mini-replicas of the ships used in the 1953 film, War of the Worlds.

    • 1984:

      There are many references to George Orwell's 1984 in this episode. One of the most predominant is the "attitude ajustment center" which is similar to Room 101, where unruly citizens were taken for an "attitude adjustment" (i.e. tortured).

      Kim and Ron's roles are similar to that of the main protagonists Winston and Julia (John Hurt and Suzanna Hamilton) from the novel and film, who are rebellious of the totalitarianism in their world.

      Shego (in this timeline) is also considered a female version of Big Brother (Bob Flag) from the book and movie, save for the lesser reference to the quote "Big Brother is watching you.", in which the the enigmatic dictator watches through security cameras everywhere.

      Drakken represents the book and film's true antagonist O'Brien, even if he did not have any super strength.

    • Ron: He's more robot than golfer now.

      This recalls a scene from the movie Return of the Jedi, when Obi-Wan tells Luke that Darth Vader is "more machine now than man."

    • The Terminator:

      The clothes worn by the Freedom fighters greatly resemble the clothes of the Freedom Fighters in The Terminator.

    • Star Wars:

      The deflection bubbles worn by Jim, Tim and Wade are very similar to the deflection shields used in Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace.
