The flashback sequence to Ron's summer camp experience is reused footage from Monkey Fist Strikes.
At the beginning of the episode, Monkey Fist has four monkey ninjas, but when he invades the space center, he only has three. Later on the space station again, it's back to four.
After the artificial gravity is turned off. Kim is capable of moving through the air with out pushing off of anything. This is a physical impossibility.
At one point when the Mystical Monkey Monk appears to the monkey ninjas at the end of the episode, his monkey lacks any lighter coloring on his face.
When one of the Rocket Booster children says "I think she's my babysitter", the girl with blonde pigtails is the one whose head is moving, implying that she is saying the line. But when we cut to a wide shot halfway through the line, the black-haired kid standing next to her is the one whose mouth is moving.
Monkey Fist's chin switches between pointy and squared off at different points in this episode.
When Kim answers Ron at the door of her house, her hair is parted on the wrong side (her left as opposed to her right, which is normally where it's parted on).
When Kim and Ron are fighting Monkey Fist and his ninjas in space, Frederick turns the artificial gravity off, but, while the other characters start floating, Frederick and several background objects remain grounded. Why didn't they float as well?
How could Frederick's suit have the WHOLE English language in just six buttons?!
^-- Creative license. And it's a pretty big leap to assume the suit was equipped with a database of the entire English language, given the limited vocabularly Frederick displayed in this episode.
^-- It may not have had the entire English language, but Fredrick DID say (or at least pushed buttons to say) more than just six words.
^-- True, but it's silly to assume that each button corresponded only to one specific word; that'd be unbelievably inefficient. While the folks at "KP" may not have worked out a functional system (and who would expect them to for a single episode?), there are certainly ways to accomplish more than six tasks using a six-button input configuration.
As Monkey Fist and his monkey ninjas seal off mission control, the number of Rocket Booster hopefuls jumps from five to six. By the end of the day, no fewer than eight potential Boosters rush Kim as she exits Dad's shuttle. Late arrivals, perhaps?
Kim gets locked in a closet by Monkey Fist. How could she get locked *in*? All locks lock on the inside. The only way this is possibe is if Monkey Fist had a key to the closet.
Ron says 'Command module, check!' right when he bites the cookie.
The bearded scientist's mouth doesn't move correctly with the words.
I doubt that's what Dad meant by "no boys" (and Kim doesn't seem to think of Ron as a "boy", in that sense, anyway).
If no boys are allowed EVER, wouldn't Ron not be allowed to be Kim's sidekick??
Kim's shirt doesn't fit, but Ron's does? It may be due to the series' established style though...
The security guard from the Blandsfield Zoo can be seen helping Frank the booth guard (now inexplicably voiced by a different actor) restrain Lord Fiske at the episode's end. Guess they just needed some generic security, and someone either wasn't paying close enough attention, or assumed viewers wouldn't be.
^-- Maybe they call him Monkey Fist because he isn't really Monty Fiske anymore. He's abandoned all elements of his past life, meaning that he's not really the same person. Follow?
When Kim shoves Ron out of the Rocket Booster room, she has no backpack, yet when she is crossing the carpark she has one.
When Rufus chews through the roof, it becomes jagged and rigid. When they go down, it is now perfect again.
At the end, when Kim takes off her space helmet and throws it at Monkey Fist, he breaks it, but when Kim and Ron get off the space ship, she has her helmet back.
^-- When do we see the vent again after Rufus has chewed through it? That shot's immediately followed by a wipe to Ron dropping from a ventilation shaft into a Space Center hallway.
How is it that Monkey Fist and his ninjas are knocked out after falling only about twelve feet? It doesn't make sense.
(in the monkey shrine, the monkey ninjas is standing in front of the altar)
Monkey Monk: Um, hello, this is a little embarrassing, but I must correct one thing in my last message. Apparently some of us don't write very clearly (points to the monkey on his shoulder) . Anyway, when I said the leader of the Monkey Ninjas would be unstoppable what I should have said was that the leader will be Ron Stoppable. My bad. Hope that didn't cause too much confusion.
(after Monkey Fist is arrested)
Monkey Fist : But I was to be the ultimate monkey master! I was to be unstoppable!
Ron: Dude, it's not happening, get used to it.
Monkey Fist: Monkey Ninjas, attack!
Frank: Monkey what?
Ron: His legion of monkey ninjas. We captured them too.
Frank: Sorry, pal. There are no... "monkey ninjas" on board.
Monkey Fist: I taught them the way of the ninja and now they abandon me. NOOOOOO!
Ron: So, the monkey ninjas just vanished?
(Kim and Ron return home from the mission)
Ron: Since when do you know how to fly a spacecraft?
Kim: It's no big. I watched Frederick on the way up.
(they exit the spaceship)
All kids: Yeah! Woo-hoo!
Mr. Dr. Possible: Welcome back, Kimmie. You were great!
Girl: Oh, Kim, I want to be just like you when I grow up.
Mr. Dr. Possible: I admit it, she's grown up.
Kim: Not completely, Dad.
Mr. Dr. Possible: True, which means we've got some new rules to cover. Number one, no boys. Ever. Number two, driving, heh, forget it! Number three...
(Ron and Kim is preparing to leave home after beating Monkey Fist)
Kim: Nice work, boys.
Ron: Let's go home, buddy.
Frederick: (Computer voice) Ron go, Frederick stay.
Ron: What do you mean?
Frederick: (Computer voice) Frederick have job.
Kim: He's been training for this mission for long time, Ron. It?s only right that he sees it through.
Ron: But that means he'll stay up here for a year.
Frederick: (Computer voice) Frederick miss Ron.
Ron: I'll e-mail you every day.
(Ron is trying to get out of the spider room by pressing wildly on the code buttons)
Ron: C'mon, stupid door. (Rufus manages to press the right code) Alright, Rufus, you cracked the code!
Monkey Fist: Well, if it isn't the boy who detests monkeys.
Ron: Get your stinking paws off me, you filthy monkey. (Rufus bites his hand)
(a door opens)
Monkey Fist: Now what?
Ron: Kim! (noticed Frederick) Why did you bring him? He's gotta be working with Monty Freak!
Kim: Ron, Frederick risked his life to come. If it wasn't for him, I wouldn't be here.
Frederick: (Computer voice) Hello, Ron.
Ron: You came to help me?!
Frederick: (Computer voice) Frederick friend.
Monkey Fist: Frederick has come back. Oh, yes! The prophecy is back on track. I will be the ultimate monkey master
Kim: Monkey Fist, get a life!
(she gets into a battle stance)
(Ron does some weird Monkey Kung Fu moves)
Frederick: (Computer voice) Bring it on.
Monkey Fist: Monkey Ninjas, attack!
(Kim is about to go on a space trip, but her dad won't let her go)
Kim: Dad, I haven't had the heart to tell you but news flash! I'm a big girl! Just because I'm growing up, doesn't mean you'll stop being my dad.
Mr. Dr. Possible: Prepare for launch!
(they are standing outside Mr. Dr. Possible's home-made space ship)
Kim: Sweet! Dad, you designed this ship yourself?
Mr. Dr. Possible: I had some free time.
Lab Worker: Of course, you realize it's completely experimental.
Mr. Dr. Possible: Trust me, this baby will move.
Kim: That's good enough for me.
Mr. Dr. Possible: Thanks honey, I... Wait, good enough for what?
Kim: I'm going.
Mr. Dr. Possible: Absolutely not! An unproven ship is no place for my Kimmie-cub!
Kim: Look, Dad. I've been up the Amazon, and down a volcano. I dog-sledded through the Arctic, swimmed the English Channel, scaled Mount Everest. Not to mentioned acing the cheerleading regionals.
Lab Worker: But you don't have the training to pilot the spacecraft.
Kim: He does.
Frederick: (Computer voice) Frederick go, Frederick help.
Mr. Dr. Possible: But we haven't even begun to calculate the launch vectors!
Lab Worker: Not to mention all the other variables on the docking mission.
Kim: Did you get that, Wade?
Wade: Yeah. By the time you revved up, I'll have all relevant vectors and flight trajectory downloading to the space centre computers.
Kim: Ah, you continue to rock, Wade.
(at the Sapce Centre)
Mr. Dr. Possible: Poor Frederick.
Kim: Dot worry, dad, he's right here
Mr. Dr. Possible: Kimmie! What happened? Thank goodness you're alright.
Kim: Dad! Well, I was on my way to talk to you, when we ran into Monkey Fist. Lab worker: Dr. Possible. We're getting something on the spider-cam.
Kim: The what?
Lab Worker: The camera in the science bay monitoring the spider habitat.
Ron: (on the camera) Ahhhhh! Spiders, get 'em off me, get 'em off me!
Kim: Ron? Dad, you have to turn that rocket around.
Lab Worker: It's OK, the spiders are harmless
Kim: Hello! Ron's hurtling into space with Lord Monkey Fist! That's harm city.
Lab Worker: Ah, yes, well, we can't turn it around.
Kim: This is mission control, right?
Mr. Dr. Possible: It was. That monkey man changed all systems to manual control. Kim: Then we have to go and get him.
Lab Worker: Impossible! Even if there were a trained crew, we don't have a spacecraft available.
Mr. Dr. Possible: Well, that's not completely accurate.
(the rocket in the Space Center is ready for departure)
Copmuter: Initiation sequence complete.
Monkey Fist: Strap yourselves in. Frederick, you take the pilot's seat.
Copmuter: Launch in T minus 60 seconds.
(the lab workers are trying to stop the launch sequence)
Lab worker 1: We're locked out.
Lab Worker 2: That monkey man's overridden the main control system.
Mr. Dr. Possible: We can't halt the launch.
Computer: Ten... Nine... Eight... Seven... Six...
Monkey Fist: At last our time is at hand. (Frederick escapes) Frederick? Frederick! No! Come back!
Monkey Fist: This is not following the prophecy!
(Ron is running from the monkey ninjas)
Ron: Ahh! Monkeys! Monkeys! Ahh! Monkeys! Gotta hide, gotta hide, gotta hide! (he runs into a room, and the monkeys run past) Safe for now. Must be some kind of science lab. What was that? Why is the room moving? (the room he is in is put into the rocket)
(Kim and Ron has just gotten into the Space Center)
Ron: Which way?
Monkey Fist: ...I just can't wait to become the ultimate monkey master. (discovers Kim and Ron) Kim Possible and her monkey-phobic friend. What are you doing here?
Ron: It's the Rocket Boosters open house. They have these rocket shaped cookies...
Kim: We came to stop you, Monkey Fist.
Monkey Fist: I'm afraid not, Monkey ninjas, attack! (Ron runs in fear) After him!
Kim: You'll never make it out of the space centre.
Monkey Fist: On the contrary, my transportation is arranged. Now, if you'll excuse me. (he manages to lock Kim into a room) Farewell, Kim Possible. (takes Frederick) Come.
(Kim and Ron are trying to get into an air vent in the Space Center)
Ron: Some tools would be nice.
Kim: Well, I've got smoke pellets, lip gloss and today's history homework.
Ron: Ooh, I wouldn't mind a look at that!
Ron: Okay, okay! Rufus, you're on.
(Rufus chews up the air vent)
(Inside the Space Center)
Monkey Fist: Any attempt to follow us will be dealt with severely. From the space station we will rule the world. Oh, the weapons there must be incredible.
Mr. Dr. Possible: There are no weapons on the space station. It's dedicated to peaceful research.
Monkey Fist: Now, that is whack. Oh, well, no matter. The Prophecy clearly states Frederick must lead us there. So it was foretold, so it shall be.
(Kim and Ron are peeking into the Space Center from a window)
Kim: It's Monkey Fist. What's he doing in Middleton?
Ron: He's working with that traitor, Frederick. I told you, KP, never trust a monkey!
Kim: (takes up the Kimmunicator) Wade, Monkey Fist is inside mission control. We need a way in, and fast. Can you access blueprints?
Wade: You're talking highly classified information, Kim. (starts to tap his keyboard) There's layers upon layers of encryption, and... I'm in! Looks like your best bet is through an air vent on the roof.
Kim: Isn't it always?
(Inside the Space Center)
Monkey Fist: My dear, Frederick, it has been foretold that you would lead us to the stars. Destiny awaits us.
Frederic: (Computer voice) Frederick stay.
Monkey Fist: Frederick, you cannot fight destiny. It's just not done. Otherwise things here could get very ugly. Understand?
(Frederic looks at all the children with concern)
Frederic: Frederick go, friends safe.
Monkey Fist: Well done.
(Inside the Space Center)
Boy: (looks at Monkey Fist) Whoa!
Monkey Fist: Take a picture, it'll last longer.
Boy: You've got hairy hands!
Monkey Fist: And the feet to match.
Mr. Dr. Possible: There's nothing cool about stealing a spacecraft.
Monkey Fist: Oh, really?
Mr. Dr. Possible: That's right, in fact I'd say it's quite whack...
Monkey Fist: Doctor, I am guided by the ancient prophecy of the mystical Monkey Monk. I am not whack!
(Kim and Ron can't get into the Space Center)
Wade: The Space Center's computer system is being jammed, Kim. I think something's up.
Kim: C'mon, Ron. We've gotta get look inside.
(Inside the Space Center)
Monkey Fist: There is no need for alarm. I have come for Frederick.
Mr. Dr. Possible: But he can't leave. Frederick is a highly trained astronaut. He's due for a mission!
Monkey Fist: Oh, I know, Doctor, and I shall accompany him.
(Kim and Ron is leaving the space center)
Kim: I really should have said something to Dad, just flaking on him is so flawed.
Ron: Some things are better left unsaid, KP. Especially when there's a monkey in the vicinity.
Kim: Forget about the monkey.
Ron: I'm trying, but that's hard to do as long as we stay here.
Kim: Look, I've gotta go back. I'll suck it up and tell him I'm too old for the Rocket Boosters.
Ron: Or, you could write him a letter. Everybody loves to get mail.
Kim: C'mon, Ron.
(they head back, and arrive at the front door, but it won't open)
Kim: That's weird.
(Rufus locks into the lock)
Ron: It's a sign! Someone's trying to tell us to stick with my plan. Put distance between us and the monkey.
Kim: Interesting theory, but doubt it. Let's try the side door. (that door is locked as well, and they look around, only to see a deserted place) Where is everybody? Something's definitely not right. (takes up the Kimmunicator) Wade, we're outside the space centre and the doors are locked. Can you see if anything is going on?
Wade: I'm on it.
(Mr. Dr. Possible is showing the Rocket Boosters a rocket)
Mr. Dr. Possible: This spacecraft is being prepared for a special mission. Frederick is going to spend a year at our space station monitoring experiments from elementary school students around the country. (a lot of monkey ninjas arrive) What's going on here?
Monkey Fist:: A prophecy... is being fulfilled.
(Ron has just met Frederick, the monkey astronaut)
Frederick: (Computer voice) Frederick. Friend. (hugs Ron)
All kids: Aww.
(Rufus comes up and shoves Rufus away)
Kim: I think he likes you.
Ron: Well, I don't like him back. I'm out of here. Are you coming?
Kim: Hey, hang on. I'm gonna tell my dad straight up that I'm too old for this. Dad.
Mr. Dr. Possible: There's my girl. (hugs Kim) You know, it doesn't get any better than this. Me, you, a deep connection. So, what's up?
Kim: Um, I, I have to... show Ron something.
(Mr. Dr. Possible is introducing the Rocket Boosters to the new astronaut)
Mr. Dr. Possible: I'd like you all to meet the special new addition to our space crew, Frederick.
Frederick: (Computer voice) Welcome, friends.
Girl: Hey, how come he uses that box thingy to talk?
Mr. Dr. Possible: I think you'll like this, boys and girls. You see, Frederick isn't a human astronaut. He's a...
(Frederick takes off his helmet)
Ron: (screams in fear) Monkey! Ahhhhhhhh!
Frederick: (Computer voice) Come play.
Girl: What's his problem?
Kim: Long story short, Ron had a bad summer-camp experience. He didn't get along with the monkey mascot.
(Kim is standing among a group of small kids)
Girl 1: Are you the teacher?
Kim: (irritated) No.
Girl 2: I think she's my baby-sitter.
Girl 1: Are you going to baby-sit us?
Kim: No, I'm just a big girl who really has no business being here.
Mr. Dr. Possible: That's my Kimmie. Good morning, Rocket Boosters, I'm Dr. Possible.
All kids: Good Morning, Dr. Possible!
Mr. Dr. Possible: I started the Rocket Boosters as a way to show Kim that we do some pretty exciting work here at the space centre.
Kim: When I was eight.
Ron: (eats one and oen part of a rocket-shaped cookie) Booster rocket ...check. Retro rocket, check. Command module, check.
Mr. Dr. Possible: Once a year since then, we've had Rocket Booster open house to show just how cool science can be, plus it's still a great way to spend the day with my Kimmie-cub. So, why don't we start with a tour of the space centre? You can meet our newest astronaut!
(outside the Middleton Space Center, Mr. Dr. Possible is stopping outside the gate guard house)
Frank: Morning, Dr. Possible, hiya, Kim. What brings you out our way?
Mr. Dr. Possible: Today's the annual Rocket Booster's open house, Frank.
Frank: Isn't that just for the, er ...little kids?
Kim: Thank you.
Mr. Dr. Possible: Oh, Frank, Kimmie-Cub is my little girl.
(he drives on)
Frank: Look's like someone's got letting-go issues.
(in Monkey Fist's training room, he is checking the net for smart monkeys)
Monkey Fist: Even if we must search the entire globe we will find the brightest monkey. The one who is smarter than any other. Oooh, this looks promising... the Blandsfield Zoo, home of the notorious "Digger McDirt". Hmmm, seventeen escape attempts. Most impressive. Captured by the authorities every time. Not so smart at all, really. (finds a monkey who is reading a newspaper) Ah, a most intelligent fellow.
Man on TV: Mr. Jiggy, you just gotta wear the dress. I told my boss I'd fix him up with my sister, only I don't have a sister. (studio laugh)
Narrator: Life with Mr. Jiggy. We'll be right back!
Monkey Fist: Ugh, to waste such simian talent on a sitcom. It sickens me. What is this? My search is over. The monkey who will lead us to the stars is him! (he shows a picture of a monkey in a space suit)
(Kim is in the kitchen, depressed)
Mrs. Dr. Possible: What's the matter Kimmie, school or villains?
Kim: It's Dad. He's making me go to the Rocket Boosters' Open House at the space centre today.
Mrs. Dr. Possible: Honey, I'm sure if you talked to him...
Kim: I can't. The slightest mention of me growing up and he gets all goofy.
Mr. Dr. Possible: Look what I found, Kimbo, our matching Rocket Booster sweatshirts.
Kim: Dad, you got this for me when I was eight!
Mr. Dr. Possible: Our very first Rocket Booster Day. Slip it on!
Kim: Help me!
Mrs. Dr. Possible: Dear, do you think maybe Kim's getting too old for the little Rocket Boosters?
Mr. Dr. Possible: There's rocket-shaped cookies!
(the doorbell rings)
Ron: Fellow Rocket Booster, are you ready?
Kim: So not. I'm actually trying to bail.
Ron: And miss the rocket-shaped cookies?
(In a Tai Shing Pek Qwar training room)
Monkey Fist: You are ready... my monkey ninjas. (they smash poles and similar objects around them) And so am I. (he presses a button, and an altar is revealed) The Monkey Prophecy states that a team of monkey ninjas stands ready and the Golden Banana has been returned to its golden stand, the ultimate monkey master will receive a sign. I shall await that sign. (he puts a banana into the altar, it peels, and a mystic light appears above it, with a monk standing in it)
Monkey Monk: Good day, disciple. Thanks to your efforts. It is time to anoint the ultimate Monkey Master.
Monkey Fist: Yes!
Monkey Monk: You must search out the brightest monkey. Follow him to the stars. There the ultimate Monkey Master will be...unstoppable! May your journey be a smooth one. (the banana closes itself)
Monkey Fist: You heard him. I will be unstoppable! I, the ultimate monkey master, will rule the world! Woooyah!

Kim telling her dad that she swam the English Channel is a reference to Gertrude Ederle, who was the first woman to swim the English Channel faster than any man, one hour and fifty-nine minutes.
Ron: I told you, KP, never trust a monkey!
Recalls the punchline (such as it was) to one of Brak's more popular "School Daze" stories for "Cartoon Planet" (featured on "Space Ghost's Musical Bar-B-Que", the series' first commercially available compilation CD) was -- that's right:
"I told you, never trust a monkey!"
Ron: Get yer stinking paws off me, you filthy monkey!
A parody of Charlton Heston's classic line from 1968's "Planet of the Apes":
"Get your stinking paws off me, you d---ed dirty ape!"
