    Kim goes with her brothers and her father to visit her uncle’s ranch in Montana, in which Ron decides to go along because he figures that he’ll be able to be lazy at the ranch. However, when Dr. Drakken decides to hold a convention for the smartest people in the world, he uses his “silly hats” to make them ignorant so that he may become the best genius in the world. It’s up to Kim to save the day once again, though she soon learns that she may need help from her family; especially her cousin Joss who considers Kim her idol but is kind of annoying and after that has a new idol (Ron) but is herself not Kim. My favorite part of this episode is when we see Joss being annoying and when she helped Shego accidentally by messing up the battle. My lastly favorite part was when Joss learned her lesson and when we see her new idol which is Ron Stopable.moreless
  • Silly hats, hero worship, and robot horses--what more could you want from Saturday morning? Drakken turns Middleton's finest minds into a cadre of driveling imbeciles.

    9.0
    Drakken is angered over being rejected for a MENSA-type organization, so he uses cowboy hats wired with electronics to eliminate the competiton. Here we see Dr. D's quite insidious, with a scheme that's one part Pinky and the Brain and two parts The Mad Hatter, but dreadfully short-sighted. If he'd stopped to consider it, wouldn't he want to use the biggest brains in town to help him build a doomsday device to rule the globe, rather than waste his time with silly dances and mindless gibbering? It might have been funny if Shego had pointed this out to him afterwards, and treated us to one of Drakken's sputtering, nonplussed tantrums, as only John DiMaggio could deliver. Plus, this episode gives a lesson on obsessive hero worship. One must wonder if this episode was the writers' response to parents who wonder if the waiflike crimefighter is a proper role model for little girls: although role models are good to have, one should not be a mindless carbon copy, looking to a cartoon character for direction. Be yourself.moreless

    • Slim Possible: How'd yer prarie dog lose his hair? (Rufus shakes his fist angrily) Feisty little fella!

    • Ron: (of the ranch) The lazy C. Well, the lazy me should fit right in!

    • Drakken: I need to invent something so brilliant, so irrefutably mind-bogglingly wowful. . .
      Shego: (quietly) So close. . .

    • Shego: Oh, c'mon. Why do you wanna join some super dorky club?
      Drakken: To prove that I'm brillianter than a lot of them!
      Shego: Brillianter?
      Drakken: Most smartest, whatever. I'm a scientific genius, not an englist.
      Shego: Linguist.
      Drakken: Stop that!

    • Shego: (reading letter) Cerebellum Ultra Smarty Super-Genius Thinking Society, are you kidding me?
      Drakken: (growls as he tries to get the letter) Give it!
      Shego: Whoa, whoa, and they won't let you join?

      Kim: In Montana.
      Ron: Montana?! Okay. I'll be here when you get back.

    • Kim: So Ron, you just going to chill? All summer?
      Ron: "Chillin'," as you put it, is for amateurs. I'm marinating.

      Rufus: Huh? No! Sorry!
      Ron: Wha-- oh, you're right. Yeah, it's a Japanese school girl.

    • Kim: Ron, Uncle Slim's ranch is a working ranch.
      Ron: I thought it was a dude ranch. You know, for dudes?

    • Kim: Dad! Ron!
      Joss: Captured by Shego? That means your arch foe is next door. Spankin'!
      Kim: Joss, it's not spankin', it's serious.
      Joss: But nothing ever happens here. This is major!
      Kim: That's what I'm afraid of.

    • Ron: (seeing Ramesh with silly hat on) That is one strange square-dance.
      Mr. Dr. Possible: I'll bet it's a square-root-dance.
      Ron: What's that?
      Mr. Dr. Possible: I don't know. . .

  • NOTES (3)

  • ALLUSIONS (3)

    • Joss Whedon:

      Kim's cousin is named after Joss Whedon, creator of such shows as Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Firefly, a science fiction western. The lattermost is clearly the main inspiration for this episode.

    • Back to the Future III:

      Drakken's cowboy outfit is similar to Marty's cowboy outfit in Back to the Future III.

    • The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers:

      The scene where Shego's horse is attempting to step on Kim is similar to a scene in the movie The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, in which a horse nearly steps on the hobbit named Pippin.
