Episode Summary

Job Unfair
When Career Day comes to Kim's school, she is stuck with a job that is very unfair. Meanwhile Drakken plans a raid on Canada.

Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • This episode is about Drakken stealing a weather machine.

    It’s career day and Kim expects to be paired up with her mother. However, when Bonnie gets teamed up with her instead, Kim gets stuck with a janitor who seems too dedicated to his job. Meanwhile, Ron gets paired with a secret agent and gets a plethora of unique gadgets to try out. However, with Dr. Drakken stealing a weather machine so he can flood Canada, Kim may just realize that her mentor may be more useful than she first thought. The stolen weather machine reappears in Day of the Snowmen. My favorite part of this episode is when we see Ron plays with the gadgets that he doesn't know how to use and we learn that Ron's teacher is Kim's teacher too.moreless
  • Job Unfair wasnt one of the best KP episodes I have watched. It could have been much better as I dont really like stories David Block directs (no offense).

    Job Unfair is one of the not-so-must-see episodes of Kim Possible. Many aspects of the episode was potrayed badly.

    The janitor was one of my least favourite characters and I am glad he doesnt appear in future episodes of Kim Possible. ANyway, we got to see Ron having his own gadgets which was good and it provided us with character development.

    Drakken and Shego in this episode were predictable and I just cant help but feel very sorry for them. I just wish the world will be conquered by villians soon because Kim winning is getting kinda predictable. Overall, O would not recommend you to see this episode.moreless
  • One of my favorite episodes. Seeing Ron in a spy outfit was great. Nice to see Ron get some weapons and the action was cool. Nice moments between Draken and Shego. I also love the animation in this one for onece. I loved how Ron and Draken said the same.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (12)

    • When Rufus tries to get the dinghy off of Ron, his arm is a different color for a moment.

    • When the fish are dumped into the cockpit of the weather machine, Shego clearly says "So that's where the fish went." She should not have been able to say this while submerged in water, not to mention fish.

    • When Bonnie comes over Kim's house, the heart on Kim's shirt turns a different color for a moment (presumably mistaken for vacuum bag debris).

    • As Kim and Ron leave the Tri-City-Air booth, the bottom of Kim's hair turns green.

    • Janitor Joe was supposed to be Canadian, but he had an American accent.

    • When Ron releases the sneezing powder on Drakken, it goes in Drakken's face even though the wind was clearly blowing towards Ron.

    • Kim's hair gets wet from the rain while she and Ron are tied to the lightning rod. However, when she and Ron climb aboard Joe's floating ship, it appears to be fully dry.

    • Kirsten Storm's (Bonnie) name is misspelled "Kristen" in the credits.
      When Job Unfair aired on 8/29/03 at 10:30 Pacific Time, Kirsten Storms was spelled correctly.

    • During Kim's "OK girls, that was almost perfect" speech, one cheerleader's uniform is colored differently from the rest (gold bands rather than red). Stranger still, that same cheerleader's arm is missing from the wrist up!

    • That black that tops Shego's collar appears and disappears once again throughout the show. (I think the animators do that on purpose!)

    • While talking to Janitor Joe, Kim brandishes the Kimmunicator from her cheerleading uniform (pockets?)

    • The volume of water in the Great Lakes is 6 quadrillion gallons of water (6,000,000,000,000,000 gallons) weighing about 24,000,000,000,000 tons (not including fish). That amount of water is many times the size of the machine, so where does it all go?

  • QUOTES (9)

  • NOTES (1)


    • Ron: Nitro Smoke Bomb, Krypto Decoder, don't know what this is...

      Ron looking through his bag of gadgets, naming them and claiming he doesn't know what one of the gadgets are is faintly similar to a line from an episode of Danny Phantom titled "Identity Crisis" where some entertainment items are moving toward Technus and he's naming all of them. His exact words were "Plasma screen, surround sound, I don't know what this thing does..."

    • Ron: This chimerito will self-destruct in ten seconds...

      This is a gag on the self-destructing letter which appear in many inspector or spy type movies/series. The purpose of a self-destructing letter was to remove all evidence of said letter existing, so the person had to memorize it... and fast!

      Inspector Gadget got self-destructing letters, which always seamed to end up blowing up in his face, or blowing up in his superior's face. "GADGET!!!"

    • Ron: the immobilization ray...

      The immobilization ray backfiring and hitting Ron is very similar to a scene in the movie/book Harry Potter: Chamber of Secrets, in which a character(who's also named Ron) tries to use a spell on an enemy, but it ends up backfiring and hitting him

    • Harry Potter:

      The Cumulus 2000 (weather machine) is a play on Harry's Nimbus 2000 (broom). Cumulus, like nimbus, refers to a type of cloud.

    • Ron: ...this chimurrito will self-destruct in ten seconds.

      A reference to the TV show "Mission: Impossible." The agents would receive their messages on tapes, which would self destruct after they had been played.

    • Ron: Hello, Miss Possible. The name's Stoppable. Ron Stoppable.

      Ron emulates James Bond, not only paying homage to the famous line, but impersonating him (doing a Connery-Bond accent).
