  • Ron doesn't feel like a real man

    Ron makes a project about himself and his life. However his rabbi forgot to sign the bar mitzvah certificate and Mr. Barkin harasses him for it. Ron becomes depressed but gets excited on a mission once he comes across a ring that will allow him to become far more muscular. Meanwhile Dr. Drakken and his team try to steal an Pan Dimensional Vortex just to have his rival Professor Dementor and his team to have beaten them to it. Just before the device is about to go off Ron has to humble himself to remove the ring so that he can get skinny again and stop the device from detonating. Fortunately his rabbi was nearby at a rabbi convention and was able to talk some sense into him with Kim's help. In the end the certificate is signed and it is made official.moreless
  • This is a very fine and personal episode for me.

    As a devote Jew, I found that this episode of Kim Possible to be excellent. It shows that when Ron disovers that his rabbi forgot to sign his bar mitzvah certificate and the fact that he is not all that musclar, he feels like less than a man. He then discovers the hard way that a real man is mesured by his brains and character, not by his brawn. Not only that, but Dr. Drakken was hilariously pouty and Rufus looked mighty cute all bulked up.This has to be one of the best Kim Possible episodes ever in my opinion.moreless
  • Ron thinks he isn't a man because his Bar Mitzvah certificate isnt signed so he sets out on a quest to become a man with the help of a ring he got from Jack Henchmoreless

    Ron makes a colliage for a school project about his life. Mr. Barkin notices that his Bar Mitzvah certificate was never signed. He hassles Ron about not being a real man until he gets the certificate signed. Drakken plans to steal a Pan Dimensional Vortex Inducer but Professer Dementor has already done it. Drakken plans to chase down Dementor in Las Vegas until he gets the inducer back. Ron plans to prove his manly self with the help of a ring he got from Jack Hench and which Drakken robbed from to buff up his pathetic henchmen up with. When they arrive in Las Vegas Ron finds Rabi Katts at the Las Vegas Las Vegas hotel and the battle for the inducer begins. Drakken gets his hands on it and accidently activates it. That was going to wipe out Nevada until Ron climbs into a vent to shut it off after he took the ring off. His rabi comes back and signs the certificate and Ron becomes a true manmoreless
  • This episode is about Ron officially becoming a man.

    When Ron finds out he hasn’t officially become a man according to his traditions; he becomes depressed and works to find a way to prove he’s a man. However, when he finds an answer through a ring that turns it’s wearer into a very muscular individual, the concept of being a man rushes to his head; though will he manage to learn what truthfully makes a man before his muscle-bound rampage puts Kim’s mission in jeopardy? You can say that the answer is yes. My favorite part of this episode is when we see Ron learn that being a man isn't about having muscles.moreless
  • There was a lot of good character development here. The animation slightly better than normal, Kim's character was once agian whack lol. It was nice to see Draken and Ron getting the character development here. I enjoyed this episode a lot, very funny andmoreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (20)

    • While Kim and Ron sit in Jack Hench's waiting room, a Muzak version of the Kim Possible theme song can be heard playing in the background.

    • This is one of four episodes where Ron changes his image to get more popular, with the other three being Ron Millionaire, All The News, and The New Ron.

    • Jack Hench's private jet looks exactly like the one in The Twin Factor.

    • When Kim and Ron are at the receptionist in the Hench Co. building, Kim sits down and crosses her arms but not her legs. In the next shot, Kim has both her arms AND her legs crossed.

    • The movement of the manly dot is completely out of proportion with Ron's movement.

    • The animation used for Ron's "manly dot" and "manly resort" lines are the same.

    • During Wade's "energy signature" line, the screen of the Kimmunicator is missing its light blue border.

    • After Ron says "The manly resort", Kim slaps her hands over her eyes. However right before that she was holding the Kimmunicator and her books, she could not have put them away that fast.

    • At the end of the episode, after Rabbi Katz signs Ron's bar mitzvah certificate, he says, "There you go, Ronald - now it's official." As he says "now it's official," Ron appears to mouth the phrase a split second behind Rabbi Katz - suggesting that this was to be Ron's line before a script revision, and either the animators started to draw it that way, or added Katz's mouth motion and didn't clean up Ron's.

    • How exactly does Dementor leave the mountain lab? He's not wearing a jetpack, and we explicitly see all his men take off without him. I guess it's possible they swept back in after him, but that doesn't seem very efficient/safe.

    • Nitpick: When Drakken and Shego step out of the elevator, the indicator lights are reversed from the norm - usually the light to indicate "up" is lit in green, not red.

    • When Kim is reading from the stack of client correspondence on the receptionist's desk at Henchco, she mentions Señor Senior Senior. SSS is not known for using henchmen.
      ^-- As evident by this episode's plot-essential ring, Jack also deals in villainous technology, which the Seniors use in spades. To site a specific example, the jet packs the Seniors fire up in "Animal Attraction" are very similar to those Dementor's goons employ, suggesting, perhaps, a link back to HenchCo.

    • Drakken's henchmen have always looked muscular (or
      bulky) when we've seen them in previous episodes, yet here they are 98-pound weaklings until the acquisition of the molecular muscle enhancer.

    • As seen in two out of three instances of the below-mentioned recurring shot: Drakken's scar is under the wrong eye, as the cels have been flipped horizontally for their reuse.

    • Kim's upper lip is all but missing as she stares at the heap Ron's made of Drakken's henchmen.

    • Nitpick: The second (re-used) shot of Jilly from Jersey jumping in surprise was completely unnecessary.

    • When Wade show's Ron's new energy signature, the signature appears by the entrance. Ron takes a step back to see the signature move and the signature moves all the way over to the other side of the building.

    • When Drakken climbs out of the pool he slicks his hair back into spikes, yet when he orders his henchmen to attack his hair is flat again.

    • When Drakken, Shego and his henchmen are climbing down the building, the henchmen change in number frequently.

    • When Ron's stuck in the ventilation shaft, one of his hands is pressing against the wall outside of the shaft (so he can raise his hand about Rabbi Katz's comment) and then, when he's trying to get the ring off, he realizes his other hand has somehow wedged between his chest and the bottom of the shaft.
      ^-- I think the key concept here is not so much that his left hand was stuck, but that he couldn't squeeze it past his now-enormous chest to remove the ring on his right hand. The implication, then, is that his left became wedged-in as he attempted the above, some time after we last saw it free.
      When Ron is in the ventilation shaft, and reaches to get the Pan Dimensional Vortex Inducer, he bends the shaft out of shape. Then later, the shaft appears to be perfectly straight.

  • QUOTES (29)

    • (Shego has just climbed up a high cliff)
      Shego: Be ready to move on my signal.
      (Drakken and his henchmen also reach the top, exhausted)
      Dr. Drakken: Shego, wait up!
      (the building they were going into starts to shake, and the door gets blown up)
      Professor Dementor: (laughs manically) Victory is mine!
      Dr. Drakken: (angry) Professor Dementor?
      Professor Dementor: Dr. Drakken. Hello. What brings you here?
      Dr. Drakken: I plan to steal the Pan-dimensional Vortex Inducer with
      which I will wreak much havoc.
      Professor Dementor: (holds up the Pan-Dimentional Vortex Inducer) This Pan-dimensional Vortex Inducer?
      Dr. Drakken: You can't steal it! I want to steal it!
      Professor Dementor: Too bad. (clicks his fingers) Come, my loyal henchmen! (his henchmen comes out, doing various athletic tricks, and Drakken looks with dissatisfaction at his henchmen)
      Professor Dementor: To the sky!
      Dr. Drakken: I really wanted that Pan-dimensional Vortex Inducer!

    • Mr. Barkin: Alright, listen up. I regret to inform you that Ms. Jenkins made a mistake many first-year teachers make. She ate the cafeteria meatloaf. (everyone in class gasps in shock) Now, until she's out of intensive care, I'll be covering her class. So, let's begin with a pop quiz.
      Kim: Uh, Mr. Barkin, we were supposed to present our personal history projects today.
      Mr. Barkin: Personal history project?
      Monique: It's great. We each did a project that explores who we are.
      Ron: There was only one rule, have fun!
      Mr. Barkin: Have fun? No wonder the meatloaf got her. She's weak. Alright, bring on the projects.

    • (Ron is presenting his personal history project)
      Ron: We all know Ron Stoppable is "the man", but can we prove it? I believe we can with this collage!
      Mr. Barkin: Collage? That's a French word, isn't it? Points off for that.
      Ron: It's all here, Mr B. From birth to Bar Mitzvah and beyond.
      Mr. Barkin: I'm not so sure about this.
      Ron: Don't feel bad. Many people are unfamiliar with Jewish traditions. The Bar Mitzvah occurs when a boy is 13 years old. It's ferociously cool. You go to temple, you read from the Torah and boom, you're a man. My rabbi even printed out a signed souvenir certificate which he signed.
      Mr. Barkin: Correction. Which he did not signed.
      Ron: No way! Rabbi Katz definitely... (notices it's not signed) did not sign it.
      Mr. Barkin: Some would say that you're reading from the Torah before the assembled, that's what's important.
      Ron: Yeah? You think so?
      Mr. Barkin: I said some, not me! I'm a stickler for detail. You got a certificate here you bring around and it's not signed.
      Ron: Oh, no.

    • (In Ron's house)
      Ron: I can't believe it. I've been living a lie all these years!
      Mrs. Stoppable: Oh, Ronnie, you have not living a lie.
      Ron: Have so!
      Rufus: Aww.
      Mr. Stoppable: If it makes you feel better, drop by temple tomorrow and get Rabbi Katz to sign it.
      Mrs. Stoppable: Well, no, honey, it'll have to wait till next week. Rabbi Katz is at that rabbinical conference in Vegas, remember?
      Mr. Stoppable: Oh, right.
      Ron: Oh! So I've got to wait a whole another week to be a man?
      Mr. Stoppable: That stuff is not what makes you a man.
      Ron: It's the only proof I've got.
      Mr. Stoppable: What's important now is: what kind of man are you?
      Ron: I don't know. Rufus, what do you think?

    • (In Drakken's lair)
      Dr. Drakken: Inadequate! It's the only word for it. Let's review, shall we?
      (he shows his henchmen several small movie clips of their disastrous actions)
      Dr. Drakken: I stand corrected. It's not only inadequate, it is embarrassing.
      Shego: So, do what Professor Dementor does.
      Dr. Drakken: And what is that?
      Shego: Visit Jack Hench.
      Dr. Drakken: Oh, please. Every villain on the planet uses Hench. Not me. I paddle my own canoe, thank you very much.
      Shego: You're just too cheap.
      Dr. Drakken: The man's prices are outrageous.
      Shego: Alright, alright, I'll infiltrate his research facility and, you know, maybe I can find some free samples.
      Dr. Drakken: Please, Hench never gives free anything. He... (stops) Oh, you mean stealing, don't you?
      Shego: Doy!
      Dr. Drakken: Very good then. Steal something wonderful.

    • (Ron is walking in the halls of Middleton High, and bumps into Mr. Barkin)
      Ron: Oh, hey, sorry, Mr. B.
      Mr. Barkin: I can't help but feel somewhat responsible for your current funk.
      Ron: Actually, I'm on to a new funk. My dad said the question isn't am I a man, it's what kind of man. And I gotta tell you, I'm just not sure.
      Mr. Barkin: It's easy. You're small and weak.
      Ron: Excuse me?
      Mr. Barkin: Stoppable, the ideal man is big and/or strong. You are neither.
      Ron: I get by.
      Mr. Barkin: You get rescued by a girl.
      Ron: Sometimes.
      Mr. Barkin: Frequently.

    • (In the halls of Middleton High)
      Ron: Been looking everywhere for you, Ron. (she notices Mr. Barkin) Hey, Mr. Barkin.
      Mr. Barkin: Possible.
      (they walk towards Kim's locker)
      Ron: Kim, how often would you say you rescue me?
      Kim: Uh, I don't know. Sometimes? Hm, frequently?
      Ron: Frequently?
      (they arrive at Kim's locker)
      Kim: Okay, Wade, we're here. What's the sitch?
      Wade: We got a hit on the site from a Jack Hench.
      Kim: Who?
      Wade: This guy is a total mystery. Nobody knows what he does, whatever it is he makes some serious cash. Wait till you see his private jet.

    • (In Jack Hench's building)
      Guy: Why, you must be Kim Possible and Ron Stoppable. I'll let Mr. Hench know you're he Please, please, take a seat.
      Kim: Thanks.
      (they sit down)
      Kim: I don't like this.
      Ron: (reads a magazine) Me either. These questions they're asking. Manliness quiz? Ha!
      Kim: I meant the whole Hench Co. vibe.
      (she walks over to the reception guy)
      Kim: Excuse me, could you please get a bottle of water?
      Guy: You bet.
      (he walks off, and Kim checks some papers)
      Kim: Senor Senior Senior? Professor Dementor? This guy hench deals with every villain bent on global conquest.
      Ron: Okay, my manly score could not be that low. Kim, check my math?
      Kim: Come on!

    • (Kim and Ron is fighting henchmen in Drakken's lair)
      Ron: How we doing?
      Kim: Been better.
      Jack Hench: People, people. Miss Possible is my guest
      (the henchmen disappear)
      Ron: That's a good call, fellas, 'cause you know, I was primed to make my move!
      Jack Hench: The hero and the sidekick. Classic.
      Kim: So, this was a trap?
      Jack Hench: Not at all. According to your website, you help people, and, Miss Possible, I need help.

    • (in Jack Hench's lair)
      Ron: You're showing us a ring.
      Kim: (scans the ring with the Kimmunicator) It's no ordinary ring, Ron. It operates on a molecular level, right?
      Jack Hench: You are a smart one. That's exactly right. This is my molecular muscle enhancer.
      (shows a video of a weak man who takes on the ring and turns into a body-builder)
      Ron: Hey! That rocks
      Jack Hench: That's what I said when those crazy kids down in research and development came up with it.
      Kim: Instant muscles.
      Jack Hench: Exactly. Does it get any better? I don't think so. Then that jerk Drakken had to send in Shego.
      Kim: Drakken?
      Ron: Shego?
      Jack Hench: She stole the whole batch, except for this one.
      Kim: And we should care about this why?
      Jack Hench: Miss Possible... Kim...
      Kim: Miss Possible.
      Jack Hench: Okay, fine. Anyway, you fight a lot of villains, right?
      Kim: Yeah.
      Jack Hench: And they usually have henchmen, right?
      Kim: Uh, yeah.
      Jack Hench: Where do you think the name came from? Here at Hench Co, we're building a better henchman. I'd like to think that we're performing a service for the community.
      Kim: The evil community.
      Ron: Sure, this guy runs a shady business, but, I mean, come on, that technology in Drakken's hands?
      Kim: Good point. Okay, we're on it.
      Jack Hench: Great!
      Ron: (takes the ring) And this will be crucial to our investigation.

    • (In Ron's house)
      Mr. Stoppable: Oh, great, you're home. I've been wanting to talk to you about your crisis.
      Ron: The crisis? Oh, oh, no, that's over.
      Mr. Stoppable: Really? That fast?
      Ron: Let's just say I found an instant solution.
      Mr. Stoppable: Oh, really? But I worked up some real good advice about manhood.
      Ron: Really? That's cool. Um, hey, you give Rufus the down-low. He'll brief me later.
      Mr. Stoppable: Uh... Okay.

    • (In Ron's room)
      Barkin's voice: (in Ron's head) That's easy. You're small and weak.
      Ron: Not for long.
      (he takes on the ring, and he gets big muscles)

    • (Drakken is walking in front of his enhanced henchmen)
      Dr. Drakken: Molecular muscle enhancement. I love it! Ha-ha-ha! Now you are manly men, we will steal the Pan-dimensional Vortex Inducer, which was ours to steal in the first place! Shego, have you located Professor Dementor's latest lair?
      Shego: Yeah, but it looks like nobody's home.
      Dr. Drakken: Argh! Revenge was to be mine, but now Professor Dementor has vanished without a trace. Oh, cruel fate! Maybe I should call him. I've got him on speed dial.
      (calls on the phone)
      Professor Dementor: Hello...
      Dr. Drakken: Where are you hiding, you cursed….?
      Professor Dementor: ...I can't take your call right now...
      Dr. Drakken: Uh, the machine.
      Professor Dementor: I've taken my entire staff and my newly-acquired (shouts) Pan-dimensional Vortex Inducer! And we're off to Las Vegas. Leave a message at the tone.
      (Drakken throws the phone)
      Dr. Drakken: Agh! He's so brazen.

      Guy: Awesome!
      Girl: Look at his biceps!
      Ron: Man, can't see past my pecks. Ah, well.
      (he opens his locker, but the door gets torn off)
      Monique: Ron, what happened?
      Kim: Molecular muscle enhancer.
      Monique: See, I never woulda guessed that.
      Kim: Take it off, Ron.
      Ron: No way! I finally feel like a man!
      Kim: Muscles do not make a man.
      Monique: Uh-uh. You gotta dig deeper than that.
      Kim: Way deeper.

    • (At Middleton High)
      Brick: Stoppable?
      Ron: Yo, Brick.
      Brick: You seem... different.
      Ron: It's just me, you know, hanging. Being manly.
      All: Cool.
      Ron: Yeah, it is. Who's the man?
      Monique: Okay, since when do you care what those other guys think?
      Ron: Since... just now when they accepted me.
      Kim: Ron, look... (the Kimmunicator beeps) Hey, Wade. Guess who decided to try out the molecular
      muscle enhancer?
      Wade: Ron.
      Ron: How did you know?
      Wade: The enhancer gives off a weird energy signature.
      Ron: Oh, yeah! ...Hey, Kim, what's an energy signature?
      (Wade shows them a view from otuside Middleton High, and a green dot)
      Wade: Ron, you are here.
      Monique: Hey, you're the dot.
      Ron: The manly dot.
      Kim: So Wade, if you scan for a bunch green dots...
      Wade: We'll find out where Drakken is! Already did it. He's in Vegas.
      Kim: He's where?
      Wade: At the Las Vegas, Las Vegas resort.
      Ron: The manly resort!
      (Kim sighs)

    • (In Las Vegas)
      Dr. Drakken: Las Vegas, the place where vengeance will be mine.
      Shego: I spotted Professor Dementor and his boys.
      Dr. Drakken: Poised to threaten the free world with the Pan-dimensional Vortex Inducer?
      Shego: Uh, no, actually, they're chilling by the pool.
      (he walks to the pool)
      Dr. Drakken: How does he find time to relax? How does he get to have it all? (tries to open the gate) Ah, stupid gate.
      Employee: Uh, sir, the pool area is for hotel guests only. You need a room key.
      Dr. Rakken: Argh, fine! We'll check into the hotel, then we will steal the stolen Pan-dimensional Vortex Inducer, and then... vengeance will finally be mine!

      Jilly: Welcome to Las Vegas, Las Vegas, paly, what can I do you for?
      Dr. Drakken: Yes... Jilly from Jersey. Hm. I need a room.
      Jilly: Sorry, baby, but we are booked with the cuckoo conventions.
      Dr. Drakken: Fine. Whatever. Just hand over a key so I can get into the pool.
      Jilly: Easy, clyde. The swim is for registered cats only.
      Dr. Drakken: (grabs him) That's what I'm trying to do, you annoying little poser!
      Jilly: Uh, get the hands off the suit, creep.

      Kim: Yeah, hi. Have you seen this guy (shows him a picture of Drakken)
      Jilly: A-ring-a-ding-ding.

      Kim: Okay, Rufus, you slip through and unlock the gate from the inside.
      Rufus: Check!
      Ron: Kim, I could just bend the bars.
      Kim: Save it for the circus, Ron.
      (Rufus opens the door)
      Rufus: Ta-da!

    • (Inside the pool area at the Las Vegas, Las Vegas Hotel)
      Kim: (notices Drakken and his henchmen on the top of the roop) Drakken. And look, more instant muscle men.
      (Dementor also notices, and clicks his hands to call out his henchmen, who cuts the ropes Drakken and the others are climbing down with, causing them to fall into the pool)
      Professor Dementor: (as Drakken is getting out of the pool) Hm. Looking for... this, hm?
      Dr. Drakken: The Pan-dimensional Vortex Inducer.
      Kim: The Pan-dimensional Vortex Inducer?
      Ron: What do the rings have to do with the Pan-dimensional Vortex Inducer?
      Dr. Drakken: Use the power of the rings! Get that Pan-dimensional Vortex Inducer!

    • (In the Las Vegas, Las Vegas Hotel)
      Dr. Drakken: Comb this place from penthouse to pavement.
      Shego: Sure. I'll take the buffet.
      Dr. Drakken: Nice try. I'll take the buffet.

    • Kim: Wade, what have you got on Professor Dementor?
      Wade: Okay, several days ago, he stole a Pan-dimensional Vortex Inducer from a research facility in the Rocky Mountains.
      Kim: Why am I just finding out about this now?
      Wade: Um, local, federal and international law enforcement are on the case. They thought they didn't need you.
      Kim: Well, I guess they thought wrong. Come on, Ron. Let's move!
      Ron: Way ahead of you, KP. I'll check in here. (rips up the doors to a room full of rabbis) My bad.
      Kim: (embarassed) Heh-heh-heh! Excuse us.
      Ron: Guess I don't know my own strength.

    • (Kim and Ron are walking around in the Las Vegas, Las Vegas hotel)
      Kim: (notices Dementor) Ron, look! Professor Dementor.
      Ron: (looks to his left) Drakken!
      Kim: It's Kim Possible! Get her!

    • (Ron is beaten by Drakken's henchmen, and ends up in a room with many rabbis)
      Ron: Rabbi Katz?
      Rabbi Katz: Ronald? Ronald Stoppable?
      Ron: Yeah. What are you doing here?
      Rabbi Katz: It's a rabbinical conference. Ronald, have you been working out or something?
      Ron: Nice, huh? By the way, did you know you forgot sign my Bar Mitzvah certificate?
      Rabbi Katz: Really? Certainly I'll sign it as soon as get back to Middleton.
      Ron: No, no, it's not necessary.
      Rabbi Katz: I would have to agree. The Bar Mitzvah ceremony itself is what counts, Ronald.
      Ron: What counts is this.
      Rabbi Katz: What, your muscles?
      Ron: Let's face it. If I got any more manly, the world couldn't handle me.
      Rabbi Katz: Ronald, I think you're confused.
      (Drakken's henchmen come)
      Ron: Better lay low, Rabbi K. I gotta take care of business, Ron style.

    • (In the Las Vegas, Las Vegas hotel)
      Professor Dementor: What's next, boys? Should we hit the buffet or take in a show?
      Dr. Drakken: Hand over the Pan-dimensional Vortex Inducer.
      Professor Dementor: Never!!
      Dr. Drakken: Have it your way. My henchmen aren't afraid to play rough.
      (He notices that none of his henchmen is following him)
      Professor Dementor: (laughs) Drakken, you are always entertaining. (screams) Get him!!
      Shego: It's six against two. How many can you take?
      Dr. Drakken: Put me down for... none.
      Shego: Oh, good.
      (Kim is down with Ron and Drakken's henchmen)
      Kim: Ron, are you in there?
      Ron: Yo.
      (Kim notices that Drakken and Dememtor is figthing)
      Kim: Ron, I gotta go. Can you and your muscles handle things down here?
      Ron: Yo.

    • (Drakken and Dementor is figthing over the Pan-Dimentional Vortex Inducer)
      Dr. Drakken: Give it to me!
      Professor Dementor: No! It's mine!
      (it falls off the floor)
      Both: No!!
      (Kim grabs it)
      Kim: I'd say finders keeps their supplies here.
      Shego: (takes the Vortex Inducer) Sounds fair to me.
      (Kim and Shego starts to fight, and Kim eventually kicks it over to Drakken)
      Dr. Drakken: Thank you, Kimberley. What's that beeping?
      Professor Dementor: It's been activated.
      Dr. Drakken: Is that a bad thing?
      (Kim and Shego sighs)
      Professor Dementor: Don't you have any idea what the Pan-Dimensional Vortex Inducer does?
      Dr. Drakken: Something very dangerous, I'm sure, or else it wouldn't be top secret.
      Kim: How dangerous?
      Professor Dementor: The vortex it creates will be a contained disruption in the very fabric of reality!!
      Dr. Drakken: States? Time? Energy?
      Professor Dementor: All will be twisted in a vortex of pure chaos!
      Dr. Drakken: (throws it into an air vent) Let's get out of here!
      Professor Dementor: Did I mention that vortex will be the size of the state of Nevada?
      Dr. Drakken: Oh, we're in Nevada! How ironic.

    • (Kim and Shego is trying to get the Pan-Dimentional Vortex Inducer, which is stuck in an air vent )
      Shego: Move and I can get it.
      Kim: I'll get it.
      Shego: It's gonna fall any second.
      Ron: (grabs them both) Easy does it, ladies.
      Kim: Ron, We can't mess around here. That thing's gonna wipe out the entire state of Nevada!
      Ron: Sounds like this is man's work.
      (He tries to get in, but he gets stuck)
      Shego: So, he is as dumb as he looks.

    • (Ron is hearing voices in his head)
      Barkin's voice: Stoppable, the ideal man is big and or strong.
      Ron: Yeah, big and strong. This is not a problem for the new me.
      Rabbi Katz: But Ronald, there was nothing wrong with the old you.
      Ron: Okay, Rabbi, get out of my head.
      Kim: Ron, he's right. These instant muscles have got to go. It's not the real you.
      Ron: So many voices in my head!
      Kim: Ron, we're talking to you through a ventilation shaft.
      Rabbi Katz: Ronald, the measure of a man is not about biceps or pecks.
      Ron: How about rock-hard abs?
      Kim: What he's saying is, take off the ring!
      Ron: Not till I save the day! (tries to grab the Vortex Inducer) It's gonna fall!
      Kim: You've got to take off the ring!
      (Ron tries to take it off, but he can't reach it)
      Ron: I can't do it!
      Kim: Yes, you can.
      Ron: No, I really can't. (Rufus takes it off) Thanks, buddy. (Ron returns to normal, and he grabs it) This beeping is so irritating. (he bangs it to the wall ) I shut it off! Is that Okay?
      Dr. Drakken: (takes it) Ha-ha! Peachy. (Rufus, with the ring on himself, beats Drakken)

    • (At Ron's home, Rabbi Katz signs Ron's Bar Mitzvah certificate)
      Ron: There you go, Ronald. Now it's official.
      Mrs. Stoppable: My little boy is a man... Again.
      Mr. Stoppable: Congratulations.
      Ron: Boo-yah!

  • NOTES (4)


    • X-Men:

      Professor Dementor kind of looks like Juggernaut from the X-Men series.

    • Jack Hench: (Sing-songy) I don't think so!

      Hench's (Fred Willard) line and its delivery are taken directly from a "catch-phrase" coined by Mike LaFontaine, a character from A Mighty Wind (also played by Willard) who launched a failed comedy show featuring several catch-phrases that never caught on.

    • Taskmaster:

      Jack Hench's role in supplying henchmen for villains is similar to that of Marvel Comics' Taskmaster, who runs training centers for thugs who are then hired by some of Marvel's main villains.

    • Ron: "Yo!"

      Ron repeatedly uses the word "yo". This word is associated with Sylvester Stallone, particularly his MANLY, muscle-bound character of Rambo.

    • Hotel Name: Las Vegas, Las Vegas:

      The "Las Vegas, Las Vegas" hotel is probably a play off the "New York, New York" which is a New York themed casino/hotel in Las Vegas. Interestingly enough, though, the casino is drawn to resemble the original Flamingo hotel-casino, not New York New York or any of the modern "megaresorts".

    • The Lord of the Rings:

      Very, very loose reference- so loose it might drop off- but in 'The Lord of the Rings', of the rings given out to each race, many are rings of power... in this episode, a ring gives out strength.
