  • Kim loses her memory and must gain it back while Drakken tries to use his mind controlling serum to turn the military into his slaves.

    9.5
    Well done from start to finish with the villains particularly Shego using Kim's amnesia to the villains' advantage. Kim starts to regain her memory and recalls just about everything expect that she and Ron are now a couple. Eventually she and Ron foil Drakken's 'foolproof' plan. The best part was a "Make a Wish" kid who had a moment on the show.
  • Well i had thought this was an ok episode but i like the idea that she lost her memory.

    I had liked this episode some what. But i do like the idea that she loses her memory. That is very original. I had also that this episode was very cleverly plotted and planned carefully. It is a pleasure to watch this episode. It is very original and i had enjoyed very much. I will watch it over and over and search for mistakes and admire its greatness. She had lost her memory due to Drakken's stupidness, but it showed what it would be like if Kim wasnt a super hero because she forgot how to fight. I think this episode and think it is very creative. I also like the idea that she forgets that she and Ron are together.moreless
  • Kim loses her memory

    9.2
    Yeah, this episode was great.

    Already from before, there had been speculation about Kim losing her memory, and everyone thinking that were right. Kim did lose her memory... by accident. I had thought it would be more like Drakken doing it on purpose, but, well not everything can go the way I want.

    And I liked how she kinda gradually got her memory back, and I liked the Captain Constellation stuff. "Rockets are go!" Hilarious.

    And then there was the relationship. Kim didn't believe it at all. But she finally remembered, when Ron lost his pants. It was a weird trigger for it, but it did the work. Kim remembered him losing his pants, and her giving him a belt for the "half-versary" And she finally said those three words; "I love you". Been waiting a long time to hear that.

    And then there was Drakken and his papers, they were hilarious. He almost ended up losing his memory as well, becoming completely dependent on the papers to remember stuff. And his supposedly "foolproof" plan. When will he learn?

    Finally, there was a "make a wish" kid in this episode. When she entered the screen, asking for Kim's autograph, I was jut like "Make a wish kid". And I was right.

    All in all, this was a really great episode, and it deserves the score 9.2moreless
  • An episode you won't forget (no pun intended)

    9.0
    I really enjoyed this episode. Before this episode aired, I made speculations that Kim would lose her memory (others thought it meant a villian would turn over a new leaf). When I first read the spoilers for this episode, I was surprised by how close I called it (part of me felt like gloating). For two weeks I waited for this episode, and when it aired, I wasn't disappointed. True, some parts didn't go like I thought they would (the scene during the ending credits could have been better), still, this episode was really enjoyable. There were a few things I would've done differently though. For one thing, I would've had Drakken strip Kim of her memories on purpose, showing how evil and clever he can really be. Second, I probably would've gone with Kim just losing her memories of events that occurred in season four, having her memories stop after season three (she'd still lose her memories of dating Ron, that's what really matters). Also, I would've thrown in a subplot involving Kim and Ron's anniversary and Kim worrying that Ron forgot about it (that would be a twist of irony). Don't get me wrong, the writers' ideas were good too, I'm just saying I would've used a few different plot devices if I was them. There were a lot of parts of this episode I really enjoyed. Ron trying to convince Kim they were dating throughout the episode was good (I thought that picture of them at the prom was cute, and Kim mentioning Ron's dream from Ill-Suited was funny), Kim continuously saying "Rockets are go!" was cute, Drakken's thing with those cards was pretty funny, and seeing the flashbacks of Ron losing his pants was hilarious too, but I have to say my favorite part was at the end when Kim said the "L" word to Ron (personally, I would've waited till the season/series finale for her to say it), and I'm sure many K/R shippers will agree with me. I'm also sure that many will agree with me in saying that scene was probably the best part of the ep. That scene reminded me of the final scene of So The Drama, because it made the whole episode worth watching. In my opinion, this is one of the best season four episodes yet.moreless

  • QUOTES (18)

    • Drakken: (writing on cards) Go to hospital, steal machine, remember foolproof plan.
      Shego: Oh, no. No! You are not going to become one of those list guys. That is so lame.
      Drakken: (writing on a card) Tell...Shego...to...zip it.

    • (Ron arrives at Kim's house)
      Ron: Morning, Mr. Dr. P, Mrs. Dr. P. So, any progress?
      Mrs. Dr. Possible: Good news, most of Kim's basic memory's been restored.
      Mr. Dr. Possible: But there was a little mix-up between the dishwasher and bathtub this morning.
      Mrs. Dr. Possible: Worked out fine. Kimmy and the dishes all got clean.
      Ron: Oh, but what about?
      Mr. Dr. Possible: Don't worry, the forks and knifes were in the face-down position.

    • (As Ron is taking Kim to school)
      Mrs. Dr. Possible: Oh, Ron, one thing.
      Ron: Not to worry. I'll have KP back in time for dinner. After school, I'll give her a refresher around Middleton. It'll be like a second first date.
      Kim: Are you hitting on me?
      Ron: Um, Kim, we are dating. I'm your boyfriend.
      Kim: Boyfriend? (Giggles) Oh, wait you're serious?
      Ron: Oh, that wasn't painful at all.

    • (After Drakken is foiled)
      Shego: Oddly enough, I have a card for this: "Dr. D fails."
      Drakken: Grrrrr.

    • Drakken: (reading his cards) First, we break into the lab, steal the M.R.M, I remember my foolproof plan, and then, we bowl with the henchmen. No, wait, bowling is tomorrow. These cards are out of order!

    • Drakken: Shego. At last, the pure nanotroneum is mine. The smallest, most powerful energy source known to ma...
      Shego: (cutting him off) Are you for real? I was with you. I know what it is, Doctor Exposition.
      Drakken: Fine. I was just enjoying the moment.
      (Kim swoops in and takes the nanotroneum)
      Kim: Sorry to spoil it.

    • Ron: (looking around) Um, aren't there supposed to be soldiers on this train?
      Drakken: (checks his card) I bypassed the cooling system which set off the engine overload alarm. They all jumped off.
      Shego: Overload? You mean the train's gonna explode?
      Drakken: Yes, if I actually did bypass the system.
      All: Did you?
      Drakken: Um, er, no! Of course, I, um... I forgot to write a card to fake the bypass.
      Shego, Ron, and Kim: So it is going to explode?
      (There is a small explosion as an alarm sounds)
      Drakken: It, um, would appear so.

    • (Shego is about to blast Kim and Ron)
      Ron: Hey, wait wait wait! Shego, you tell her! Kim and I are dating, right?
      Shego: What? For real? Oh come on. That never made any sense to me. I mean...
      Ron: (to Kim) See? That wasn't a no...(Shego blasts him) Woah!

    • Drakken: It's the final stage of my plan; the serum that makes it all come together.
      Shego: (sniffing) Hey, that smells like...
      Drakken: Yes yes, I had plenty of the mind-control shampoo leftover. I concentrated it into a form that will make my plan...
      Shego: Do not say "fool proof" because the more I hear, the more I think it's anything but.
      (Shego storms off)
      Drakken: Oh, yeah? Well. Hmrph. I need more cards of things to say when Shego gets lippy.

    • (After Drakken finishes his mind-control serum)
      Drakken: (reading off a card) "Once completed, gloat with evil satisfaction."
      Shego: Are you gloating to yourself?
      Drakken: Mmm, no...
      Shego: You totally were! Rrrgh, freak.

    • Drakken: So long, Kim Possible! You used to think you were all that, but you don't remember the all-thatness that you used to think that...you were...then, but...not now...
      Shego: Yeah just, yeah just...just stop.

    • Ron: Any luck, Rufus?
      (Rufus appears from beneath a clutter of wires and whimpers to Ron)
      Ron: It's okay, buddy. Just take it slow.
      (Rufus squeeks angrily at him)
      Ron: Okay. Right. Don't take it slow. Try the blue one.
      (A part of the train explodes)
      Ron: Not the blue one! Not the blue one!

    • Kim: Why is my watch beeping?
      (Ron turns the screen on)
      Ron: Wade.
      Kim: Hi, uh, Wade.

      Kim: What is?
      Ron: You are.
      Kim: Am what?
      Ron: Kim Posssible.
      Kim: That so doesn't sound like a name.

    • (Kim and Ron arrive at the Middleton Hospital)
      Kim: (to Ron) We're here to cheer. But not too much cheer.
      Ron: Kim. Laughter is the best medicine. Unless, you know, you have an acute case of the giggles. Then the cure is worse than the condition.

    • (After his balloon animal flies out of his hands and lands on his head)
      Ron: Okay. You know what, any clown can do balloon animals. What I do defies description.
      Monique: True that.

    • Drakken: (reading off a card after the M.R.M. explodes) Oh, snap.

    • (After Kim has a flashback of all the times Ron lost his pants)
      Kim: I remember. I remember! I gave you the belt for our half-iversary.
      Ron: Yeah, I still don't get what exactly that is.
      Kim: Ron, I remember that you are my boyfriend, and that I think I love you.
      Ron: For real?
      Kim: For real.
      (Kim hugs Ron)
      Ron: Now this is a memory.
