  • A new villain comes into play

    9.3
    This episode features the introduction of Monkey Fist. Who is he? Let's go some back in time. He was once the archeologist Monty Fiske, and the world's foremost expert on monkeys. This had Ron very nervous due to his obsessed fear of monkeys. Monty called in Kim and Ron to help him recover a jade monkey, which supposedly had, whith three other identical relics, the ability to grant one Mystical Monkey Power, as well as complete masterign of Tai Shing Pek Kwar - Monkey Kung Fu. The funny thing about this is that it is really a martial arts style in the living world. Of course, Monty uses these monkeys to turn him into "the ultimate monkey master" or something in that general direction. This is kinda cool, because a monkey obsessed freak villain is excactly what the world needs... not.



    But the problems doesn't stop with that. Kim has to deal with her dweeb cousin, Larry. And he is the stereotypical nerd: glass-wearing, role-playing game obsessed, and he fails completely to realize that he totally bores other by talking about his interests. Wade tries to rescue Kim, by testing out the new hologram function he had made, and this sounded very tempting to Kim. Well, I like Larry. As a character. Every show like this needs at least one person from Dweeb Planet. Preferably only one.



    So Ron and Kim decides to go to Monkey Fist, whislt the holo-Kim is left with Larry. But, we see clear signs that holo-Kim is with Ron, and not the real one. Of coruse, that brings trouble, as they discover Monty Fiske's secret, and he attacks them. Ron does eventually get the help of Larry, who tells him what to do through geek language. This leads to Ron gaining Mystical Monkey Power, and this is the background for several of my favorite eopisodes later in the series. And the battle between Monkey Fist (which is an anagram of Monty Fiske) and Ron is cool, and funny. ANd I like Ron's great finish.



    Overall, this episode had many good plots, were well-written, and had something special that I just can't quite put my finger on.

  • This is the first episode I'd ever seen, and it got me hooked.

    8.0
    If there's anything funnier than a radically genetically mutated (with dangerous experimental surgery) monkey-man trying to take over the world with mystical monkey powers, and by doing so forcing my personal favorite character, Ron, to suck it up and 'Become that which he fears most', Then I don't know what is!

    This is a great episode in that it features some major Ron-ness (always good), and that it's the first appearance of Ron's own personal arch foe, Monkey Fist. I'm not about to question how badical Kim is, but it's nice for Ron to get some spotlight here and there.moreless
  • This episode is about a new villain that has mystical monkey powers.

    9.7
    When Kim and Ron are assigned to help out Lord Monty Fiske who is trying to explore some monkey based ruins, Ron attempts to go through the ordeal despite his intense fear of monkeys. However, when a ninja who specializes in monkey kung fu steals the artifact that Kim managed to recover from the ruin, she discovers that things aren’t going to go as well as she expected; especially since she has to visit her annoying cousin Larry’s house for the weekend. This episode was the first appearance of Monkey Fist, Larry and the first glimpse of Ron's recurring fear of monkeys. My favorite part of this episode is when we see that Kim and Ron were actually helping an evil villain with mystical monkey powers.moreless
  • Here is one of my favorite-episodes!

    10
    This episode was one of the best! I really liked all the monkey kung fu stuff! And Lord Monkey Fist is one of my favoritevillians! The second one is Mandarin from the show Super Robot Monkey Team Hyperforce Go! This episode allso shows that some people is prepared to pay high prices to become into their favorite-animals. I hope that they will one day do a episode about Monkey Fists childhood! It would be awsome! And this episode allso shows that Ron can take care of things himself! It was great to see them fight, Monkey Fist vs Ron Stoppable! I hope there will be more of that in the future!moreless
  • We get to know Ron a lot better. In a good way.

    8.3
    Kim and Ron help out a guy, Lord Monty Fiske, who claims that he needs help finding a jade monkey. When Kim finds the last of the four jade monkeys, she gives it to Monty Fiske, who then pretends to be a ninja to steal it just to throw them off.

    Later Kim's dad tells her that she has to go to her cousin Larry's house on Saturday. Kim doesn't really want to go, but her dad said that she had to go, and that she couldn't go no matter what. So Wade sends a Holo Kim, without Kim knowing, to go with Ron to Monty Fiske place.

    But when Monty Fiste gets the power of the jade monkeys, he turn himself into a monkey, then says that he is know Monkey Fist. Ron is scared out of his mind. But with a little help from cousin Larry, Ron says to himself that he must become what he fears most. So he get the power of the jade monkeys, and Monkey Fist get mad and jelous. He callanges Ron to a fight. But Ron wins, and Kim finds out that other people can help her out. Even when you don't think that they can.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (15)

    • When Kim asks Wade what monkey kung fu is, Ron's left sleeve is flesh-coloured.

    • When the hooded ninja and Kim start to fight, the scene focuses on Kim, in which the ninja's gloveless hand flies by Kim's face despite the fact that the ninja was wearing gloves. Also, in that scene, the hand was normal, despite the fact that Lord Monty Fiske was supposed to be the ninja, though if that were true, the hands would have been monkey hands. It's impossible for Lord Monty Fiske to have received his monkey hands overnight so it would have been impossible for the ninja to actually be him, though it was implied that it was in the episode.

    • When "the hooded ninja" is caught stealing the monkey statue, and Kim engages him in battle, the statue disappears and reappears in the ninja's left arm (just before Kim kicks it to Ron).

    • When Ron's mouth hangs open after Fiske's comment of personally directing questions to Kim, his tongue is white.

    • When Ron says "Completely mental in this case!" and rushes past Bates, his entire outline is black, rather than grey on his shirt, pants and gloves.

    • When Bates opens the door to Ron and the Holo-Kim, Ron's belt is briefly grey.

    • The plane in which Kim and Ron fly to Cambodia looks like a jet airplane, however the sound effect used is of a propeller aircraft.

    • When Ron receives mystical monkey power from the idols, the floor beneath him is yellow with no monkey image on it. However, later, as Monkey Fist is trying to catch the falling idols to keep them from breaking, the giant monkey picture on the floor is visible.

    • When the ninja (Monkey Fist) picks up Ron to get the jade monkey from him, the ninja's gloves are missing.

    • As Kim scales the cliff to save the eagle, she has the Kimmunicator strapped to her wrist. As she parachutes down, it's missing. Then, when she lands, she brandishes it from nowhere.

    • After Ron knocks Bates on his back, the latter's hair and mustache darken for a frame as he struggles to stand.

    • The appearance and color of the monkey idols changes from the scenes where Kim gets the idol and Wade tells Kim about the legend to the scenes where Lord Fiske and Ron acquire the mystic monkey power, then changes back after Ron tells Rufus to "search and destroy".

    • The Kimmunicator is briefly red as Kim demonstrates one difference between the Holo-Kim and the real McCoy.

    • Near the conclusion of Ron's hand-to-hand battle with Monkey Fist, Fiske slams Ron to the ground. For that moment, and that moment alone, Ron's hands are bare.

    • When Lord Fiske thinks Kim and Ron have found out his secret, he's wearing a robe and ascot; though in the next scene, both are gone.

  • QUOTES (24)

    • (At Larry's)
      Larry: And the rebellion on Barnacles was given such a passing mention in the film, I wrote my own story about the battle. You can imagine the debates that raged when I posted it on the fan site, Kim.
      Kim: (bored) Really?
      Larry: I'm not boring you, am I?
      Ron: No, no, no, go on please, this is fascinating stuff.
      Larry: Hay, wanna see outtakes from Moon Beyond Ios?
      Ron: The deleted footage of the Shrieker Race?
      Larry: Got it at the 99 Tulsa Convention.
      Ron: Score!
      Kim: Your guys are the greatest. When the chips were down you both came through. I'm really proud.
      Ron: So you gonna watch with us?
      Kim: Not even a chance. Later, guys.
      Ron: What, this is cool stuff, Kim! Kim?

    • (Ron and Holo-Kim runs through the hallways of Monkey Fist's castle)
      Holo-Kim: Ron!
      Ron: Kim, tell me you're real?
      Holo-Kim: (she flickers) I wish, Wade got carried away with his new gimmick.
      Ron: Dead end! Oh man!
      Holo-Kim: There's a window!
      Ron: Give me a boost!
      Holo-Kim: Uh, Ron, I'm not really here, you know.
      Ron: Right. (he climbs, only to bend a candle-holder, revealing a secret passage) This will work.
      (Back at Larry's)
      Kim: I don't know what to do. If I were there, I could help him but.
      Larry: Give it to me. I have an idea.
      Kim: This isn't one of your stupid science fiction games, Larry! Ron's facing a kung fu mutant with bioengineered hands and mystical monkey powers and... here.
      (Larry appears in Monkey Fist's castle as a hologram)
      Ron: Who are you?
      Larry: Kim's cousin, Larry, but that's not important.
      Monkey Fist: I will no longer be distracted by holograms. Prepare for pain!
      Larry: Remember level 9 of Fortress? To defeat the Cloud Guardian, you must drink from his enchanted well!
      Kim: That's supposed to help?
      Larry: It's a geek thing.
      Ron: (thinking) I must become that which I fear most. (shouting) Hey monkeys! Hit me! (he gets Mystical Monkey Power) Oh yea! I'm fellin' it!
      Monkey Fist: No! Mystical monkey power is reserved for me, and me alone.
      (they start a monkey battle)
      Bates: Away with you, vile rodent! (Rufus low kicks him to the ground)
      Monkey Fist: Mystical power or not, you have no chance against a master of monkey kung fu!
      Ron: That's why I'm pullin' the plug. Rufus, search and destroy!
      (Rufus starts to kick down the statues)
      Monkey Fist: No! You'll ruin everything! That's quite enough. Stop it this very instant! I insist! (after saving them) I saved... I saved them all. Mystical Monkey Power will still be mine!
      Ron: Monkey this, you hairy freak! (he sends a flying kick towards Monkey Fist, knocking him unconscious, and breaking the statues)

    • Kim: Wade, Lord Monty Fiske stole that icon, I think he believes in mystical monkey power.
      Wade: It's worse! He has the power, and now he called himself Monkey Fist.
      Kim: And you know that how?
      Wade: Ron is in his house right now.
      Kim: Why did he go there alone?
      Wade: He didn't exactly; you're with him... sort of.
      Kim: The Holo-Kim?

    • (In the Mystical Monkey Power room)
      Monkey Fist: So monkey hater, we meet again!
      (a bell rings)
      Monkey Fist: Serenity chime, time to center.
      Bates: Monkey kung fu is half mental.
      Ron: Completely mental in this case.
      (a bell rings)
      Monkey Fist: Now then. Where were we?
      Bates: He's escaped, my lord.
      Monkey Fist: After him!

    • (Kim is watching the Kimmunicator)
      Larry: Is that real time streaming video?
      Kim: Yeah, a Knowing Channel documentary. I'm sure you wouldn't be interested.
      Larry: Au contraire. Long have I followed the career of Lord Monty Fiske. A little known fact, he is a master of Tai Shing Pek Kwar.
      Kim: What?
      Larry: Monkey Kung Fu?
      Kim: Monkey Kung Fu? He was the ninja.
      Larry: (grabs the Kimmunicator) Oh, can you play games with this?
      Kim: Ron was right, he is bad road.
      Larry: Hello, away team, do you read me?
      Kim: Give me that!

    • (At Monty Fiske's castle)
      Monty Fiske: Kim Possible, and your monkey-phobic friend. How delightful.
      Kim: Sorry to bother you Lord Fiske, but we wanted to ask you some questions about…
      Monty Fiske: So, you know all about it? About my obsession with Tai Shing Pek Kwar?
      Ron: Say again?
      Monty Fiske: Oh, we're playing stupid, I see. Tai Shing Pek Kwar? Monkey Kung Fu!
      (Monty Fiske walks down into the secret room)
      Ron: Is it just me, or is he walking funny.
      Monty Fiske: But did you know that I spent the family fortune to get these? (shows his monkey hands) And these?! (shows his monkey feet)
      Ron: Bad road, bad road, bad road!
      (Monty Fiske acquires Mystical Monkey Powers)
      Monkey Fist: Bow to my power. I am Monkey Fist!
      Rufus: Mayday!
      Monkey Fist: So, now you know my secret, which you will take to your graves.
      Ron: How can you be so sure? I mean a lot can happen in the next 60 or 70 years. (Monkey Fist looks at Ron) Oh, gotcha.
      (Monkey Fist attacks Kim, but flies straight through her)
      Monkey Fist: She is good.
      Ron: You're the holo-Kim!
      Monkey Fist: What! Then where is the real Kim Possible?

    • (At Larry's)
      Larry: Greetings, Kim, I am Oathar. Maybe you recognize me from Return to Ios.
      Kim: Hello, Larry.
      Larry: I do not know this Larry of whom you speak. I am Oathar. You really don't get into the spirit of role playing do you, cousin? As you can see, my Ios collection has grown quite impressively since your last visit. (shows her a figure) Notice anything amiss?
      (Kim shakes her head)
      Larry: Ah, it's a Barnales Senator with a silver cape, huh, rather dramatic error on the part of the manufacture, given that the Senators wore only purple.
      Kim: Really, Larry, isn't that fascinating.
      Larry: Can I interest you in a game of Fortress? I can cheat code us right to level 9.

    • (Outside Monty Fiske's castle)
      Ron: So what made you decide to do the virtual flake after all?
      Kim: Wade really wanted to test out the holo-Kim.
      (pause)
      Ron: Are we gone ring the door bell? Knock? Something?
      Kim: (steps away) Er... yeah, doorbell.
      Bates: (opens the door, surprised) Kim Possible?!
      Kim: Nice to see you again Bates, we just have a few questions for Lord Monty Fiske.
      Bates: I shall announce your presence.

    • (At Bueno Nacho)
      Wade: The leading expert on all things simian is Lord Monty Fiske.
      Kim: We helped him, he'll help us. We'll go talk to him this weekend.
      Ron: Oh, that would be a fun conversation; monkey this, monkey that, monkey, monkey, monkey!
      Kim: Ron, look... oh, Saturday, just remembered my dinner with Larry.
      Wade: Can't you flake?
      Kim: No, all flaking options denied.
      Holo-Kim: Can I make a suggestion? Send me.
      Ron: Oh no, which one's the real Kim?
      Kim:(puts a hand through the holo-version of her) What do you think?
      Ron: Oh, sure, make fun, but when holographic duplicates start running around, you can't be too careful!
      Wade: Think about it Kim, my holographic simulator is ready for a field test.
      Holo-Kim: Really Larry? That's very interesting, Larry. Nice costume, Larry.
      Kim: It rocks Wade, but I can't do the virtual flake, I promised dad. It is very tempting though.

    • (At Monty Fiske's castle)
      Monty Fiske: Bates! Bates!
      Bates: Coming my lord. You know my lord, I do wonder if it might have been a mistake to call in Kim Possible?
      Monty Fiske: Nonsense, the plan worked perfectly. She retrieved the item, didn't she?
      Bates: My lord could have handled those primitive booby-traps.
      (Bates stumbles and lets the tea tray fly. Monty grabs the stuff with his hands and feet, which look like those of a monkey.)
      Monty Fiske: And risk injuring... these hands?! Besides, by masquerading as the ninja, I threw suspicion off me.
      Bates: You know best, of course my lord.
      Monty Fiske: And now destiny awaits. For at last, I have all four monkeys! (he laughs maniacally)
      (they walk down a secret corridor, into a room)
      Bates: Stunning in its monkeyosity.
      Monty Fiske:It is magnificent. And now, mystical monkey power shall be mine!
      Bates: You mean that figuratively of course... my lord?
      Monty Fiske: What's that, Bates?
      Bates: Well, to truly believe that old myth would be crazy.
      Monty Fiske: (angry) Crazy you say? Like it was crazy to spend the family fortune radical genetic mutation, and dangerous experimental surgery? Like it was crazy to become a man-monkey? Who violates every law of nature and science?! It's a touch unconventional. Now, but the magic monkey in place.

    • (At Bueno Nacho)
      Kim: (despaired) Saturday is going to be night of the living Larry.
      Ron: You know, I gotta tell ya, this Larry, he sounds like a majorly fun guy.
      Rufus: Majorly fun!
      Kim: Want me to send him to your house? (the Kimmunicator beeps) Go, Wade!
      Wade: Kim, I dug up some info on that jade monkey.
      Ron: (loudly) La, la, la, la no monkey stuff, get it no monkey stuff. La, la, la... (Kim puts a hand on his mouth)
      Kim: Please continue, Wade.
      Wade: The temple was one of four built by the followers of Monkey Kung Fu. Each temple had a jade monkey.
      Kim: Back up! What is... Monkey Kung Fu?
      Ron: Other than sick and wrong?
      Wade: (brings up a drawing similar to the one on Monty Fiske's map) According to legend, when the four jade monkeys were brought together, they gave the warriors Mystical Monkey Power.
      Kim: It's the same drawing we saw at the dig. But why separate the monkeys?
      Ron: Because mystical monkey power is sick and wrong!
      Wade: Actually, the legend says that the warriors didn't want anybody else to get the power.
      Kim: Maybe the thief believed the legend?

    • (At the Possible residence)
      Mr. Dr. Possible: Morning Honey. How'd Cambodia go?
      Kim: Mixed. The good part, I saved a priceless icon from a ferociously snaky spiky pit, less good, a ninja stole it.
      Mr. Dr. Possible: Oh, isn't just like those darn ninjas? Well, this aught to flip that frown upside down, Cousin Larry felt so bad about missing you for family game night, Aunt June invited us all over for dinner Saturday.
      Kim: (spits out the water in her mouth, and coughs) Oh, I wouldn't want to... impose.
      Mr. Dr. Possible: Not at all, June says Larry never has friends over.
      Jim: Maybe because he's the dweebiest guy on the planet?
      Mr. Dr. Possible: Jim, don't mock family.
      Tim: Maybe he's not even of this world, maybe he come from some far off planet of dweebs.
      (twins high-five)
      Mr. Dr. Possible: Take a lesson from your sister boys, Larry might not look like the coolest kid around, but Kim knows you can't judge a book by its cover. Right, honey?

    • (in the jungle, a figure is moving through the trees)
      Ron: (whispering) There's a monkey in camp! A live one!
      Kim: You're obsessed! Sleep!
      Ron: (scared) Getting closer... (it enters a tent) the monkey! (it then gets out again) phew... it's just a hooded ninja.
      Kim: He's got the statue! (Kim starts to fight the ninja, and kicks the statue away from him) Ron, catch!
      Ron: Don't worry Kim, I've got the monkey! (panicked) I got the monkey!
      (the ninja takes the monkey and flees)
      Kim: Oh no! He's gone, and the statue's gone with him.
      Monty Fiske: (exiting his tent) What's all this then?
      Kim: Someone stole the jade monkey.
      Monty Fiske: How shockingly awful.
      Bates: Yes, awfully shocking, my lord.
      Monty Fiske: Word of our discovery must have gotten out. Oh rot! If only your bravery was not wasted!

    • (In the jungle camp, at night)
      Ron: I'm telling you Kim, he's bad road! I feel it!
      Kim: (tired) He has a royal title!
      Ron: Which you can buy on the Internet!
      Kim: Go to sleep!

    • (After rescuing the Jade Monkey)
      Ron: Kim! What happened?
      Monty Fiske: Kim Possible! I shall see to it that the National Museum celebrate your heroic efforts!
      Kim: Oh, it was no big

    • (After dodging several flames with her cheerleading moves)
      Kim: Once again, cheerleading saved my life!

    • (They are going into the temple)
      Kim: Come on!
      Ron: Maybe there's a back way in?
      Kim: Honestly Ron, there is nothing to be afraid of.
      (she falls down a hole in the ground, into a room)
      Ron: Kim!
      Kim: O-kay. At least the walls aren't... (the walls starts to move together) ...moving!

    • (Outside the monkey temple)
      Kim: (sighs) Ron! Could you get a grip?
      Ron: Mark my words Kim, his lordship is five hundred miles of bad road!
      Kim: Ron, Lord Monty Fiske is a world famous explorer and highly respected scholar.
      Ron: Bad road! (he walks into Monty) Ah, Monty old chap...
      Monty Fiske: I believe I will direct all further communication to Miss Possible, directly. (He brings up a map) According to this map, the jade statue is here.
      Ron: What's the statue of?
      Monty Fiske: A monkey.
      (Ron trembles in fear)
      Kim: (pointing to something on the map) What's that?
      Monty Fiske: The locals believe that placing this icon in precise alignment with three others would generate a mystical monkey power... utter non-sense of course.

    • (In the jungle)
      Ron: Nice place KP, come for the humidity, stay for the leaches.
      Kim: (gasps) A monkey temple!
      Ron: (really scared) M-m-m-m-m-m-monkey!
      Kim: (sighs) Oh, no.
      Monty Fiske: Kim Possible I presume? I'm Lord Monty Fisk. This is my vale Bates.
      Kim: This is my friend Ron.
      Bates: Your friend seems rather troubled.
      Monty Fiske: Quite.
      Kim: Um... yeah, well, see, it all goes back to Ron's first summer at Camp Wannaweep. He had to bunk with the camp mascot, Bobo the Chimp.
      (We see a small flashback from Camp Wananweep where Bobo runs rampant inside Ron's hut)
      Ron: That was one crazy monkey.
      Monty Fiske: You do know of course that chimpanzees are actually part of the ape family, they're not monkeys at all.
      Ron: Monkeys, apes, they all hold stuff with their feet man! We're talking freaks of nature!

    • (Aboard a plane)
      Kim: Thanks so much for the lift, Colonel.
      Colonel: Well after the way you tipped us off to that assault, Miss Possible, it's an honor and a privilege.
      Ron: (squeezed between the soldiers) Anybody got gum?

    • (At Middleton, Wade appears in the hallway)
      Wade: Kim, Ron.
      Ron: Hey, Wade.
      Kim and Ron: Wade?!
      Ron: Live?
      Kim: In person?
      Ron: High five! (his hand goes straight through Wade) Ahh! Wade's a ghost! Wade's a ghost!
      Wade: Ron! I am not a ghost.
      Ron: Don't play me, specter.
      Kim: (Kim moves her hand through Wade) Hologram?
      Wade: Precisely.
      Ron: You almost fooled me... almost.
      Wade: (Excited) The technology is incredible. You can literally be in two places at once! (The hologram flickers) Eh, there are still a few bugs to work out. (he removes the hologram, and appears on Kim's computer) Anyway, we got a hit on the site from a Lord Monty Fiske.
      Kim: The archeologist?
      Wade: How did you know?
      Kim: I saw a documentary about him on the Knowing Channel.
      Wade: He's discovered the location of a rare artifact. But he needs your help to get it.
      Kim: Cool! So, who do we know who can give a lift?
      Ron: To Cambodia?

    • (After successfully evading game night with Larry)
      Kim: Yes! Close one, cus, but not this time.
      Ranger: Cousin a loser?
      Kim: He's totally creepy.
      Ron: Cousin Larry again?
      Rufus: Woah, Larry.
      Ron: You've been complaining about him since, forever. What's so bad about Cousin Larry?
      Kim: Do you have all night? It all stated when we were 3. Aunt June brought Cousin Larry over for a play date. Flash forward to family game night. Once a month Larry comes over, and I am stuck in Freakville. And now, Larry drones on and on about these creepy conventions he goes to... in costume! And the video games, last month I learned everything I never wanted to know about that stupid Fortress game.
      Ron: Fortress?! The other night I spent 6 hours battling the hill top fortress with nothing but a joy stick and a will that could not be denied!
      Kim: And to think that's time you actually you might have otherwise wasted.

    • (Kim lands using a parachute)
      Kim: Hi!
      Ranger: You saved a life, Kim Possible.
      Kim: It's what I do, you know, the help thing.
      Ron: (hanging from a tree) I'm the sidekick.
      (the Kimmunicator beeps)
      Kim: What up Wa... Dad?!
      Mr. Dr. Possible: Kimmie, do you know what night it is?
      Kim: Um... it's still day here
      Mr. Dr. Possible: Well, it's Family Game Night in Middleton, and we're missing a gamer.
      Kim: My bad. It was an emergency.
      Mr. Dr. Possible: Your cousin Larry will be so disappointed.
      Kim: I saved a baby eagle.
      Ranger: You should be very proud of your daughter here, sir.
      Mr. Dr. Possible: Oh, she's a pip alright. Well, I'll break the bad news to Larry.
      Kim: Tell him I feel terrible, dad.
      Mr. Dr. Possible: I know you do, hon. Bye now.
      (she turns off the Kimmunicator)

    • (Kim is climbing a mountain)
      Kim: Signal strong, and annoying.
      Ron: Don't look down, Rufus. (He looks down) You looked down! You looked down!
      Kim: Getting closer. Where are you hiding? (Kim finds a small bird) Well, there you are.
      (Ron is dragging himself up instead of climbing, but his pants go off)
      Ron: Okay, this is a setback.
      Kim: We'll get that wing fixed up, you're safe now.
      (she puts the bird in her pocket. As she starts to climb down, she falls)

  • ALLUSIONS (8)

    • Scooby Doo: Where are You?:

      In Scooby Doo: Where are You?, every time the gang encounters something supernatural, Scooby-Doo jumps into Shaggy's arms. In this episode, Ron does the same exact thing when he believes holo-Wade is a ghost. Also, on occassion, both Scooby and Shaggy leap into Velma's arms when scared, suggesting both she and Kim are quite strong for their tiny size, being able to support the weight of a trembling boy and his pet without falling.

    • Kim: Saturday is going to be night of the living Larry!

      Tongue-in-cheek reference to George A. Romero's Night of the Living Dead.

    • Tomb Raider:

      The monkey temple sequence is a homage to Tomb Raider, which features another heroine who can seemingly "do anything."

    • Harry Potter:

      This might seem like a stretch, but when Kim goes into the temple to get the jade monkey, she has to dodge the trap where fire shoots out of the stone-carved monkeys, which is similar to when Harry has to dodge the fire that shoots out of the stone-carved snakes in the computer game based on the book and movie, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.

    • Kim: And Larry goes on and on about these creepy conventions he goes to, in costume!

      Larry is similar to a dedicated group of Sci-Fi/Fantasy fans, such as Star Trek or Star Wars fans who go to conventions in costumes to discuss the series.

    • Kim: "Spikes. Gee, where are the snakes?"

      This is a reference to Indiana Jones. Indy was afraid of snakes, and they always seemed to be in every temple he went into.

    • Lord Fiske: So. You know all about my obsession with Tai Shing Pek Kwar.

      Tai Shing Pek Kwar (Monkey Kung Fu) apparently does exist.

    • Cousin Larry: (into Kimmunicator) Hello, away team, do you read me?

      References Star Trek and its "communicator" device.
