  • Ron races through the lairs of several of Kim's enemies in order to recover an overdue book of hers he lost and she took the blame for.

    8.1
    When Mrs. Hatchet discovers that Kim Possible has an overdue library book, Kim Possible's cheerleading activities are suspended. What is really bad is that Bonnie dissed Kim when the librarian came and Kim couldn't do anything but stay in the library with the librarian. Ron realizes that he lost the book which is about a lot of kinds of cheese, and he has to retrace his steps through the last few missions he and Kim went on to save Kim from...library lock-up! At the end Ron returns with a book that looks exactly like the one with the cheese. The bad thing that happens at the end is that we see the non cheese bock being opened by the librarian and some thing bad happens which is really bad. This episode didn't have a lot of suspense but it was an okay episode.moreless
  • I loved this episode another favorite of mine. Seeing Ron alone on a mission was great. I just wish Monkey Fist had a bigger part than the end of the episode. Poor Kim though being stuck in the Library that has to suck, but at least Ron found it. A++moreless

    I loved this episode another favorite of mine. Seeing Ron alone on a mission was great. I just wish Monkey Fist had a bigger part than the end of the episode. Poor Kim though being stuck in the Library that has to suck, but at least Ron found it. A++
  • About as much fun as returning a library book...maybe less.

    4.1
    For not returning a book to the school library on time, Kim is forced to assist nasty librarian Mrs. Hatchet after school. Ron remembers that he lost it on a mission. But which one?



    In retracing his steps, Ron encounters many of the show's significant baddies. It's too bad that none of them are around long enough to make an impression (though Duff Killigan had a wonderfully wicked plan in mind).



    The Wade-bot 2.0 (the only real reason to sit through this) is on hand to assist Ron, but he can't make up for an unfunny, unnecessary outburst from Ron and a painfully predictable ending (I'd have expected more from co-writer Brian Swenlin - "The Fearless Ferret", "Emotion Sickness").



    In short, if you're looking for a watered-down version of "Blush"...you've got way too much time on your hands.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (5)

    • When Kim is looking for her overdue book, she says, "This is so the drama!". This is little joke from the creators, as the movie with the same title aired one week before this episode.

    • When Shego confronted Ron, he yelled "Kim's not my girlfriend!". This states that the events in this episode occurred before the events of So The Drama, despite it airing one week before this episode.

    • Kim's voice goes from being gummy and slurred (her tongue is dry and possibly swollen from licking labels) to perfectly clear when she says Ron's name, much too quickly.

    • Ron says that Lord Monkey fist is the ONLY person who EVER remembers his name, but Senor Senior, Sr. says his name at least once in The New Ron

    • When Ron infiltrates Drakken and Shego's hideout, we see Shego wearing a bathing suit. But when she confronts Ron, she is wearing her regular suit.

  • QUOTES (12)

    • Killigan: (on seeing Ron on the floor) Ach . . . the Possible lass's dippett.
      Ron: (jumping up from floor) THAT ODOR!!
      Killigan: Ya mean my lunch?
      Ron: LUNCH?!
      Killigan: Aye, I made a batch of me Gran Killigan's Haggis. And in my castle, nobody says nae to me deary Gran's Haggis!
      Ron and Rufus: WHAAAAAAAAAA!!

    • Ron: How many times. . . is someone going to force-feed me sheep's lungs, cooked in its own stomach, before they get. . . that I DON'T LIKE IT!!

    • Ms. Hatchett: (to Kim) Well, it appears you are free to go. . . for now. But there will come a day when you forget to return a book, and I'll be waiting for you. (Laughs manically)

    • Monkey Fist: What sort of magic is this?
      Ron: The best kind. . .
      Ron and Wade: Science!

    • MHS Sign: Reading: It's a Novel Idea

    • Wade: So, what is this book anyway?
      Ron: A Brief History of Cheese.
      Wade: Sounds like a Gouda read.

    • Shego: (to Ron) So your TV follows you around? Whatever. Where's Possible?
      Ron: She's not my girlfriend!!
      Shego: Whoa there...never said she was!
      Ron: Right...AWKWARD...

    • Wade: Next up is Lord Monkey Fist.
      Rufus: Uh oh. Monkeys.
      Ron: We have nothing to fear, but fur itself.

    • Ron: Ow! Thorns! Thorns! With all their poking!

    • Wade: (in Monkey Fist's lair) What's going on down there?
      Ron: The usual stuff: Take over the world. "I want to be the Monkey King." As if it's all about him.

    • Monkey Fist: Today dawns the age of the phantom monkey, with me as Supreme Monkey King!
      Ron: Told ya. Monkey king. So predictable.

      Ron: You're the only one who ever gets my name right. I respect that.

  • NOTES (2)

  • ALLUSIONS (4)

    • Ron: Nothing to fear but fur itself.

      This is a parody of Franklin Delano Roosevelt's famous words, "There is nothing to fear but fear itself."

    • Super Mario Sunshine:

      The giant crysanthemums are a reference to the Mario videogames, 'Super Mario Sunshine' in particular.

    • The Lord of the Rings:

      Ron's behavior when he says "he suspects us," such as his crawl along the ground and wheezing, are very similar to Gollum's behavior when he is conflicted in The Lord of the Rings.

    • Little Shop of Horrors:

      The giant plans Prof. Dementor had grown are modeled after Audrey II from Little Shop of Horrors.
