  • Ron has turned evil in this episode but he changed back meanwhile Dakken turns good but changes back.

    9.6
    Hoping to avoid having to confront his ill behaved cousin at a wedding Ron awkwardly suggests taking Kim along as a friendly date. Drakken meanwhile attempts to use a HenchCo device to make himself even more evil. The plan fails when Kim and Ron break the machine turning Ron into a super villain and Drakken into a good person. My favorite part of this episode is when we see the evil Ron control Shego because he has turned as an evil genius. What was brilliant of Ron was to track Kim by the Kimmunicator that Kim always goes on missions with.moreless
  • Ron gets all of Dr. Drakken evil and Dr.Drakken in turn Ron's goodness. Due to a incident at a supervillian convention.

    9.6
    Ron has always had a very good imagination when it comes to being evil. As he was able to advise Senor Senior Senior how to better defend his mansion in "The New Ron". Drakken's evil and Ron's imagination create a villian far more dangerous than any of Kim's previous foes. He's to figure out how to defend against Shego's energy blast with a force field, and even able to put Shego in her place. Locates Kim not by security camera but by scanning the Kimunicator frequencies, and has a secondary world conquest plan.



    Drakken on the other hand seems to be no more than a male Martha Stewert making coco and cookies.moreless
  • Ron's bad side showing!

    9.7
    Okay what is with blue bad guys? Anyways, this episode is great. Ron becomes a evil manical genius that even Shego adores. Dr. Drakken turns normal skin color and good. He works with Kim Possible to stop the crazy Ron Stoppable on his bad guy rampage! Either you will love this episode, or not, but it is truly a good animated adventure that the whole family will enjoy. Good acting and plot. The fact that Ron becomes bad is funyn and you get to see lots of new outfits o nthe characters that have never been seen before. I give "Bad Boy" and "Good" rating of 9.7.moreless
  • Bad Boy was one of the rare Ron episodes that was well written in the series.

    7.9
    Bad Boy had us seeing Ron wanting to be a bad boy. Drakken also wants to be more evil but they end up switching characters.



    Ron was quite irritatng with his laughter but he was innovative with his design and I liked the parts when Drakken kep saying "Coco Mu!?", I love those words! We also get to see the Kim/Ron relationship continueing when Ron said "Thanks for being my date!" which means Ron likes Kim alot.



    I think Will Friedel did a good job with Ron's laughter but I did feel like Shego that the laughter was irritating and the fact that the scenes Ron was trying to be bad was pa9nful to watch.



    So, this episode builds the character development for Ron and a moral for all of us, that Ron is better at being Evil and Drakken is better at being Good!moreless
  • You asked for an evil Ron? Well, here he is!

    5.5
    Some could call this episode good, while others could call this episode bad. Me? I'd describe this episode to be like a rose with thorns on it--some parts are good, others not so good. I'll list the thorns of this episode first:

    While the part at the beginning where Ron was explaining about his cousin Sean woes to Kim while she was fighting Shego put some excellent pointers on the hope of Kim and Ron pairing up, to me, it felt sort of otherwise pointless. 'Agony County' also felt pointless. The scene where Drakken keeps making his coco moo comments to Shego were just plain annoying. The part where Shego ditches Drakken to be with Ron put a negative point on the Drakken/Shego relationship. And then there is the sharpest thorn: As amusing as it may have been for other viewers, I did not like the scene where Ron put Shego in her place, nor the scene where Ron attacked Kim. Kim and Shego are my favourite characters, so having them being threatened and/or hurt always makes me dislike a certain episode.



    Time to move on to the roses: The scenes where Kim and Shego were being threatened by Ron were practically the only scenes where Ron's villainous character was unlikeable. All the other scenes where Ron was evil were enjoyable, right down to Ron's villainous laugh. Will Friedle did a five star job of doing an evil Ron in this episode, as John DiMaggio also did a five star job at good Drakken. Kim looked great in her leopard costume. And last, but not least, there is the part where Ron inadvertantly asks Kim to be his 'date' (er, friend) to the wedding.



    So while this episode isn't the best episode ever made, it's still an okay episode watching only once.moreless

    • Shego: Come on, Stoppable! You're coming with us.
      Drakken: If you don't mind terribly.
      Ron (as Zorpox): No one commands me! No one!

    • Mr. Barkin: No food fight goes unpunished on my watch, Stoppable. That's one month of detention.
      Ron: BOOYAH-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA!
      Mr. Barkin: Oooh, that's funny to you, food fighter? Fine, let's make it TWO MONTHS!

    • Drakken: (to Kim) I'm feeling super-evil. How do I look?

    • Jack Hench: Well, I just wanted to say how terribly sorry Hench Co. is about the unfortunate mishap.
      Shego: What mishap?
      Jack Hench: Well, our analysis of the ruckus at the convention shows that Dr. Drakken's evil was clearly transplanted to that Zorpox fellow.
      Shego: Aha! No wonder Dr. D's messed up!
      Jack Hench: Hey, hang on, your check bounced...
      (Shego disconnects the satellite feed)

    • Ron (as Zorpox): (after Cousin Shaun throws a cake to his face) You think you got game?! You ain't got game! That's right, baby, it's payback time. BOOYAH-HA-HA-HA-HA!! I refined my potato tosser into a plasma catapult.
      Kim: That's an unexpected twist.
      Ron (as Zorpox): This will cut that brat down to size! (activates the device and shoots plasma to Cousin Shaun who runs away from the device)

    • Ron: (about his experiment) Ooh, things are about to get spudtacular.
      (Ron runs away as the device begins to throw mashed potatoes to the students)

    • Kim: Ron, you better stop this. Evil isn't your thing, it's Drakken's thing.
      Ron (as Zorpox): But I'm so much better at it. Did Drakken ever built a plasma blaster this dangerous?
      Drakken: (sadly) I did not.
      Shego: You didn't? Who knew the buffoon was a natural? Later, Dr. Do Nothin! (tosses Drakken out of the hovercar)

      Mr. Barkin: (grabs Ron) No, but I can.

    • Kim: Ron, there's something you should know. Hey, you're blue.
      Ron (as Zorpox): Kim Possible!
      Kim: Since when did you use my last name?
      Ron (as Zorpox): Since I realized my full evil potential.
      Kim: Yeah, about that.
      (Cousin Shaun throws cake on Ron)

    • Kim: Shh-shh-shh! It's starting. (The words "agony county" appear on the screen)
      Ron: You actually watch "Agony County"?
      Kim: Just to stay current.

    • Ron: Come on, KP, you know where nice guys finish.

    • Drakken: Are you thinking what I'm thinking?
      Shego: That you're paying retail?

    • Shego: You'll just gorge yourself on corndogs and hock on Dementor again.
      Drakken: That was last year and those were funnel cakes.

    • Drakken: The super villain trade show and convention? (reading ad) Doomsday demonstrations. Henchmen seminars. Evil snack bar!

    • Kim: You watch Agony County?
      Ron: Am I not supposed to stay current?
      Kim: Yeah.

    • Charity: Danny, you have spinach in your teeth and your hair is a mess!

      Charity: But I care! I care so much it hurts.
      Danny: I like when you hurts.

    • Ron: So you like the bad boys.
      Kim: Well, sometimes I, (sees her dad walk by) No. Not at all.

    • Kim: I never thought I'd say this, but Dr. Drakken, I'm counting on you.

    • Shego: Don't you have something you want to take over? Starts with a "W."
      Drakken: I love guessing games. Don't tell me. Watermelon? Wooly Mammoth? Woodchuck? (phone rings) Whirly-gate?
      Jack (on the phone):Is this the lair of Dr. Drakken?
      Drakken: Wombat?
      Shego: More or less.

    • Drakken: Want a PB sticky? (Shego blasts PB sticky) Oh, someone's a grumpy monkey.

    • Kim: Why don't you tell your parents that Sean is always picking on you?
      Ron: I tried, but they're all like, "Seany is littler than you. . ."
      Kim: How "littler"?
      Ron: Seven. But he's like, an evil seven!

    • Ron: I need to go badder.
      Kim: (sarcastically) You wouldn't want anyone liking you for the real you.

    • Ron: All will fear me and tremble beneath my storm, and then hand over to me the world supply of nacos! BOOYAH-HA-HA-HA!!!

    • Ron (as Zorpox): Welcome, Kimberly Ann Possible!
      Kim: The middle name is so overkill!

    • Ron (as Zorpox): (to Shego) Did ya see that? You were all "boom boom" and I was all "zap zap" and now you're all "boo hoo!"

    • Kim: (after Ron and Shego team up) This is bad.
      Drakken: (with his face in an entree) I have to disagree; it's delicious. I must ask the cook for the recipe.

    • Ron (as Zorpox): Shego, Kim Possible is coming.
      Shego: How do you know? She's not on any of the monitors.
      Ron (as Zorpox): I just did some scanning on the Kimmunicator's frequency.
      Shego: Why didn't Drakken ever think of that?
      Ron (as Zorpox): That's why I'm the big dog now. WOOF WOOF BARK!

    • Drakken: There must be some world domination plan I've tried that worked.
      Shego: Here's a news flash: If it worked, you'd be running the world. The only thing I see you running is your mouth!

    • Shego: Stop saying Cocoa Moo!
      Drakken: (takes a sip) Mmm, that's good Cocoa Moo.
      Shego: (frustrated) AAAGH!

    • Drakken: Someone needs some Cocoa-Moo!
      Shego: (angrily) If I hear Cocoa-MOO one more time, I'll flip!
      Drakken: Someone's grumpy. I think you need some Cocoa-Moo!

    • Ron: Oh please, are they still teasing that Charity and Dannie are gonna get together?
      Kim: Like that's ever gonna happen. It would end the series.

    • Shego: Why are you dressed in that stupid costume?
      Kim: Have you looked in the mirror?
      Shego: Grrr. . .

  • ALLUSIONS (8)

    • Ron: Oh please, are they still teasing that Charity and Dannie are gonna get together?
      Kim: Like that's ever gonna happen. It would end the series.

      This is an obvious dig at Kim and Ron's own "Will they/won't they" relationship. Ironically, the series almost did end with So The Drama, in which they finally give a romantic relationship a try.

    • Ron: Did you see that? You were all 'boom boom' and I was all 'zap zap' and now you're all 'boo hoo!'

      What Ron says is very similar to the movie Finding Nemo, where Crush, a turtle, says something in a very similar manner.

    • Ron: Just call me "bad boy."

      Ron's 'bad boy' outfit makes him look a lot like Shaun Hunter from Boy Meets World. Will Friedle, who voices Ron, used to star on the show.

    • The O.C.:

      The in-show television show Agony County"is very similar to another program called Orange County, more popularly known as The O.C..

    • Horror Movies:

      The organ music playing under Ron's rant to Shego in the lair is "Toccata and Fugue in D Minor." This is commonly used in horror movies.

    • Superheroes:

      The outfit looks remarkably like Catwoman's, only with spots. Sheela sounds like a spoof of the character "She-ra". Both are famous female superheroes.

    • Drakken: Are you thinking what I'm thinking?"

      A nod to Brain from Pinky and the Brain. Shego's answer was random, but not as random as Pinky's usually is.

    • Wade: Zorpox the Conqueror, from The Villain's League of Evil Villains...

      The comic book Wade sites as the source of Zorpox is a parody of the Leagion of Doom from the 1970s cartoon The Challenege of the SuperFriends.
