  • Great way to end a series.

    Anyway I LOVED this episode, and went beyond my expectation which was pretty high to begin with.



    The battle scenes, and the destruction were excellent. Drakken finally won, so happy for him, and he has a new power, he is no longer the helpless man he used to be.



    The Kim / Ron stuff were great, I loved the finale image of them riding into the moonlight. An awsome part was Ron fighting Warhok with his monkey powers. A loved that it was seeing Kim helpless and in the clutches of Warhok, that got Ron to master his monkey powers and become the the monkey master.



    Seeing Ron like that, it reminds of the Avatar state, it was so cool to see Ron like that, and for this time for Kim to see it, unlike last time. And Shego's line to Drakken, "You had to be there." So true.



    And I got a tengling feeling seeing Kim, Ron, Drakken, and Shego all holding hands and fighting the alien invasion.



    Just loved it. 10 / 10moreless

    Ha???? What do those people want with KP and Drakken?????? I have to resee this episode I guess. I really enjoyed this episode. What I really liked was that the episode focused on what would happen to Kim and Ron after graduation. It was just a good deal to have Ron do something. I jsut don't get KP not paying Good attention now. Kim was trying to assure a worried Ron that graduation was nothing to be afraid of when in reality. If they were both that concerned about their relationship, then they do belong together. The ending of this episode was really suspenseful. Going to To Be Continued after Kim made it to the ship I need to see the next episode. To see what this has to do with anything!moreless
  • Part 1 of the most thrilling KP episode ever

    9.5
    I really enjoyed this episode. The part with Drakken becoming part flower was really amusing. What I really liked was that the episode focused on what would happen to Kim and Ron after graduation. It was about time that the writers put more emphasis on their relationship. And talk about interesting. Kim was trying to assure a worried Ron that graduation was nothing to be afraid of when in reality, she was just as scared about it as him. If they were both that concerned about their relationship, then they do belong together. The ending of this episode was really suspenseful. Going to To Be Continued after Kim made the last line.moreless

    Old an New charactors join together to celibrate a Magnificent series.



    Miss Josh in the gathering of the family, but the remaining Possible's show what a family should be.



    Drakken and Shego shippers will jump for Joy.



    Felix fans find him paired up with a classic charactor of her own (Always wondered what happen for Zita)



    Mystical Monkey power ROCKS. The final battle had an anime tone that will not be forgoten (They weren't lying. They did show its destiny)



    I do wish they had given a bit of their future plans out, buuttt. Our protests at the Series ending had left its mark, so maybe we can plead for a Movie Sequel. That would ROCK.



    And the final scene, totaly Grease.



    So till the movie hits:



    NEVER BE NORMAL



    ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE



    And



    NOTHING BUT LOVEmoreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (7)

    • Kim is startled by Ron while drinking soda and spits a huge mouthful of it everywhere. This joke also appeared in the pilot episode Crush, when Josh Mankey, another boy Kim liked, suddenly surprised her in a similar manner.

    • The joke with the clock breaking down during the Seniors' last hour in high school is a reference to the very first Kim Possible episode produced. When Kim is in detention in Tick, Tick, Tick, the clock goes way too fast and Barkin has to reset it.

    • At Smarty-Mart, Barkin tells Ron, "The center cannot hold." In Ron's memory, Barkin's words are "The center will not hold."

    • When Ron was feeding and watering the animals at Smarty-Mart, he was whistling the theme to the Naked Mole Rap.

    • Kim and Ron kiss twice in this episode. The first time was at Bueno Nacho in this part, and the second time was at the end of the second part when they were flying away in Kim's car.

    • The running gag where someone interrupts Kim and Ron kissing is finally broken in this episode. They did kiss in the episode Oh No! Yono!, but it was brief due to Hana jumping between them.

    • In this episode, we finally find out what Mrs. Dr. Possible's name is. Her husband's brother, Slim, calls her by the name "Annie". This also explains where Kim got her middle name.

  • QUOTES (6)

    • (After Drakken is drenched in his Pollinator mutagen)
      Kim: (about Drakken) He's mutating!
      Shego: This is new.
      Ron: He's...He's...
      (Drakken emerges from the shadows)
      Ron: He's a pansy?
      Kim: Um, I'd say marigold.
      (Drakken looks at his reflection)
      Drakken: What?! I look like a kid playing a flower in a school play! All I want is one clear-cut victory. Is that too much to ask? Is it?!

    • Shego: You know, I could have stolen something actually dangerous, but no, no. You had to be "creative".
      Drakken: This time, I win, Shego. I'm due. It's my turn. One blast and zowie!
      Shego: And "zowie" is good?
      Drakken: "Zowie" is zowie, Shego. It's better than good. It's bad!

    • Drakken: With this Super High Pollinator - of my own design, I will create my own army of...
      Shego: ...killer plants?
      Drakken: Are you guessing, or did you just look at my notes?
      (He holds up a doodle of himself and a giant plant)

    • Kim: Do you realize we're actually leaving a lair intact for once?
      Ron: Yeah, I know. I kinda miss the explosion.

    • (The power goes out just as the final bell for the seniors is about to ring)
      Mr. Barkin: Well that was anticlimatic.
      (He makes a ringing noise as the seniors file out)
      Mr. Barkin: Oh, every year! It's like opening a barrel of rabid monkeys!

    • (Kim and Ron are at Bueno Nacho)
      Ron: Okay, not going to panic. Maybe I'm overreacting. What Mr. Barkin said, then Kim's college offers. Okay, nothing to worry about, right?
      Rufus: Hmm-mm.
      Ron: Yeah, right, okay, mum out. Don't want Kim to freak.
      (Kim comes to the booth with their food)
      Kim: Salad for me. Grande combo for you.
      Ron: (Freaking) KP! Why does it have to end?!
      (Kim spits soda in Ron's face)
      Ron: I guess I sort of freaked.
      Kim: (after a second) So, what's the sitch?
      Ron: Well, see, I was talking to Mr. Barkin, and he said senior year was the best time of his life, and that the center couldn't hold, and now he can't live in the past!
      Kim: Once more, with puncuation.
      Ron: Don't you get it? It's all going to end. It's a trick. Graduation. It isn't the start of something. It's the end of everything!
      Kim: No it's not Ron. We're just graduating. It's not like we're breaking up.
      Ron: Breaking up? Breaking up?! I didn't even think of that!
      Kim: Oh, no, no, no. It's all going to be okay.
      Ron: Okay?! Kim, we're breaking up and we're graduating!
      Kim: No, we're not.
      Ron: Wait, so we're not graduating?! I knew I needed to take another P.E class!
      Kim: Ron, we're both graduating, but we're not breaking up.
      Ron: We're not?
      Kim: No. It's just graduation, it's not the end of the world.
      Ron: How sure?
      Kim: This sure.
      (She romantically kisses Ron, who smiles as an effect)
      Rufus: Aww.

  • NOTES (3)

    • This episode aired on Toon Disney's Most Impossible Kim Possible Marathon on April 12th, 2008.

    • The final two episodes of season four aired on Disney Channel Australia on February 1st, 2008 as a part of a Kim Possible double episode special.

    • This episode's premiere was ecliped by a 54-hour megathon on Disney Channel in which every single episode and movie in the series was shown.

  • ALLUSIONS (9)

    • Sesame Street:

      When the classroom clock breaks down seconds before school is dismissed, Mr. Barkin imitates the bell's ring. The sound and even the triangular shape of his mouth resemble the two aliens in Sesame Street when they discover their first telephone and try to communicate with (not through) it.

    • The Second Coming:

      Barkin: The centre cannot hold.

      This line by Barkin is a direct quote from the W.B. Yeats' poem "The Second Coming."

    • People:

      The magazine featured in this episode is called Humans, which is a reference to the very popular real-life magazine People.

    • Spaceballs:

      Barkin: Soon the now will be the past, and the future, the new now.

      This is a reference to Spaceballs, with the "When will it be then?" gag when they search for themselves in Spaceballs: The Movie.

    • Resident Evil 2:

      Drakken's mutation is a direct pass at the Resident Evil 2 game, with William Birkin's mutation into the Tyrant when dropping the G-virus sample.

    • Gilligan's Island:

      When Kim and Ron are making their move on Duff Killigan's headquarters, over the communicator, Wade calls it Killigan's Island. This is a play on the name of the very popular TV series Gilligan's Island.

    • Payback's the Bitch:

      When Kim utters the line "Payback's the sitch" as the last words before episode ends, she is making a reference to the popular phrase "Payback's a bitch".

    • Braveheart:

      Duff: Don't go all William Wallace on me!

      William Wallace, aka "Braveheart" was a Scottish patriot who led the resistance during the Wars of Scottish Independence.

    • Star Wars:

      Sensi appears to Ron similar to how Obi-Wan Kenobi appears to Luke Skywalker in Star Wars.
