Gil / Gill
Officer Hobble/Dr. Lurkin
Gill is back in the net, in the wide shot, when Kim is talking to the police officer. At this time, he should already be in the giant fishbowl.
Although Ron is shown as the cheer squad mascot in this episode, he doesn't become the "Middleton Mad Dog" until Attack of the Killer Bebes, which was produced prior to Sink or Swim and is set chronologically earlier.
When Gill is saying, "It turns out, and you're gonna love this, the lake had been polluted by run-off from the science camp," his nose changes colors and shapes several times.
Ron's pockets frequently change from cargo pants pockets to normal pockets throughout this episode.
Seen from the outside, the bus looks pretty big (like a normal school bus), but the inside is small, as it only has four rows of seats.
As Tara eats the pork wafer, her bellybutton is missing.
When Gill says, "So... he ditched you," the fin on top of his head is light green.
When we first see Gill after he is captured, he is in Ron's handmade net. Yet, when he is dropped into the giant fishbowl moments later, he is on a canvas stretcher.
When Gill says, "All part of my plan... to have revenge on Ron Stoppable!", the fin on his left foot is missing.
When Ron and Gill are fighting in the lake, Gill's hair, for a moment, turns green like the color of his muck.
Right after Ron says, "And it's back there!," the "13" on Cabin 13 is missing, then it appears again.
When Gill is saying "You took my arts and crafts," and also when he's saying, "They shut down the camp," one of his nostrils disappears.
When Gil's telling the Counselor how he's not getting out of the water, his eyelids are skin-colored. But when they show him before he dives under, his eyelids are black.
The positions of the cheerleaders change over and over when they are being held captive by Gill.
Barkin: Hey listen up, the police are gonna give us a lift home. Lock and load!
Ron: I'll be there in a minute, Mr. B.
(Ron is looking at the now destroyed Cabin 13)
Kim: Pretty amazing.
Ron: What do you mean?
Kim: Everything! You were awesome!
Ron: Yeah. This is the one place where I know the score. Where Ron Stoppable knows what it takes to be he last camper standing.
(The step he is standing on breaks causing him to fall)
Kim: Ron, the stuff you did. You were resourceful, you were brave. That hasn't anything to do with this place. It's you.
Ron: You think so?
Ron: So on our next mission, I call the shots?
Kim: Ah... ehe, we'll see.
Ron: Oh, come on, I know what that means.
Kim: It means that we'll see.
Ron: Yeah, that's a code for not a chance!
Kim: Actually, it's code for ferociously unlikely.
Ron: Aw, man!
Hobble: Nice, work, Miss Possible.
Kim: Actually, Officer Hobble, it was all Ron.
Hobble: (laughs) Good one, young lady.
Kim: I'm serious.
(Points over to Ron who is being followed by Barkin and the cheer squad)
Barkin: (pats Ron on his back) Nice work, Stoppable.
Cheerleaders: Nice work! Good going, you rule!
Rufus: (fast) Oh, thank you, thank you, thank you.
Ron: No, no no! Thank you
(Tara kisses Ron on his cheek)
Bonnie: You know, it's not like not like you're still, you know, you. But it would really stink if that jerk had turned us into mutants. And you were kinda brave, and all.
Ron: (high fives Rufus): Who rocks?
Bonnie: (sighs) You do.
Ron: (to Gill who is trapped in a net) Let me tell you, Ron Stoppable makes a mean lanyard.
Barkin: Hurry man, my feet are webbing as we speak!
(Some scientists remove the muck on Barkin)
Gill: Ron, you're still a squeeb! (he gets dropped in a large fish bowl tank) And you always will be!
Kim: Dr. Lurkin specializes in genetic mutations.
Ron: (shakes hands with Lurkin) So you... think you can reverse Gill's mutation?
Lurkin: Well, I specialize in genetically altered rutabagas, so this should be quite a challenge!
Gill: I will have my revenge!
Lurkin: Oh, don't worry, I'll fix him up!
Ron: Get normal soon, Gill!
Barkin: (to Lurkin) Hey, hey. Check my neck, everything cool?
Gill: Give it up, Ronnie!
Ron: Not when I've got my old Cabin 13 escape tunnel handy!
Bonnie: He is ditching us!
Tara: That... ditcher!
Kim: Ron does not ditch! He's...(Barkin makes weird sounds) Mr. Barkin, what's up with you?
Barkin: Man, my neck feel all weird and itchy, and... (gills starts to grow on Barkin) cheese and crackers, I'm mutatin'!
(Gill sticks Kim to a tree with muck)
Gill: Step away from Miss Possible, Ronnie!
Ron: How do you know her?
Gill: Oh, I know all about your life, squeeb. It's been going great, hasn't it?
Ron: I -- I've got some complaints, but who doesn't?
Gill: Is one of your complaints that you're a stinking mutant?!
Barkin: Alright son, let's take a time out here, before things get out of hand.
(Gill sticks Barkin to a tree with muck)
Gill: Do you mind? Can't you see I'm catching up with my old camp buddy? (turns to Ron) So, Ron. Did you ever hear why they shut down the camp?
Ron: Err... no.
Gill: It turns out -- oh, you're gonna love this -- the lake had been polluted with runoff from the Science Camp! (We see the Science Camp)
Ron: I thought that was Band Camp...
Gill: No, that's Band Camp. (We see the Band Camp)
Ron: Really? I thought that was Clown Camp.
Gill: No, that's Clown Camp! (We see the Clown Camp)
Ron (laughing): Oh, yeah. I love those clowns.
Gill: Argh! Okay, the point is, the lake was toxic!
Ron: See, I thought that lake was funky! But, I'm glad I never went in. You, on the other hand, you practically... lived in that... water.
Gill: While you made wallets!
Ron: And lanyards. I ruled at lanyards... hehe.
Kim: Look, we know plenty of scientists. Maybe someone can cure you.
Gill: Science? Science made like this!
Ron: Are you sure it wasn't the clowns?
(The cheersquad is in Cabin 13)
Ron: In this very cabin I was able to survive every evil Camp Wannaweep could throw at me.
(We see a flashback of Ron. He is about to enter his cabin when some other campers shoots arrows at him)
(back in present time)
Ron: This will be our base of operations!
Tara: Uh, Ron?
Ron: Yes, Tara?
Tara: I'm hungry.
Ron: Well, if we lift the floorboad like so (steps on one end of a floorboard.), you'll find my secret stash of snacks. (Ron takes up a package of snack)
Kim: Tara, those are ancient!
Ron: Pop Pop Porters food-style pork wafers have enough preservatives to last for decades!
Tara: (tastes the snack) It's not... so bad. It's definitely food-style.
Bonnie: Great! Our squad is short two people, and there is nobody to drive us to the competition!
Cheerleader: Dude, forget the competition! How are we gonna survive the night? There's something out there!
Bonnie: Okay, okay, you're right. Do you think that something can drive?
Kim: Everybody stay calm. I'm going to handle this. Here's the plan.
Ron: Excuse me.
Ron: On the school bus, Barkin's in charge. When we're saving the world, you're in charge. But here at Camp Wannaweep, I'm in charge!
Kim: Ron, this is serious.
Ron: (with serious face) Hello! Note serious face!
(Kim and Barkin are collecting firewood in the forest. We hear some gushing sounds)
Kim: Mr. Barkin, did you hear that?
Barkin: Stoppable's gettin' to 'ya. Ahh, it's just nature's night music.
(a slimy hand grabs Barkin and drags him into the brush)
Kim: Mr. Barkin? Mr. Barkin? MR. BARKIN! (back at camp) Have you seen Barkin?
Bonnie: Kim, duh. Barkin's with you.
Kim: Not anymore.
Tara: So, where is he?
Kim: I... I don't know. There was these weird sounds, he was there. More weird sounds, then he disappeared!
Kim: Uhhh... where are Liz and Marcella?
Tara: They went to the little girl's cabin.
(two girls scream. Kim runs over to the little girl's cabin)
Ron: KP, buddy system! (Ron stops outside the cabin, and puffs) Kim, do I have to remind you the importance of the buddy system?
Kim: It didn't help Liz and Marcella.
(Rufus points at a weird footprint)
Ron: That's not a human footprint, Kim!
Kim: Okay, I'm getting a little freaked out here.
Ron: There's only one place to go! Cabin 13!
Tara: (To Ron) So... you shared a cabin with a tick-infested chimp?
Ron: Yeah, that's right. This place holds a lot of memories for me. Some bad, some... no, no no, all bad.
Kim: (Groans) I'm, um... I'm going to get some more firewood. Yeah
Ron: Ooo, KP, Camp Wannweep rule number one! Use the buddy system.
Kim: Oh, well, I think I can handle it.
Barkin: He's right, Possible. I'll go too.
Ron: Mr. B's with the program.
Barkin: (whispering to Kim) I can not take another camp story.
Kim: Why do you think I'm going?
Ron: I was trapped, hiding in the hollow of a tree... and then the woodpeckers came.
Bonnie: (To Kim) Your freaky friend is acting extra freaky.
Kim: He's not freaky, Bonnie!
(some birds squeaks. Ron turns around in fright) Well.. okay, he kinda is, but it's not his fault.
Ron: It's the curse of Camp Wannaweep!
Tara: What if he's right? What if this place is cursed?
Kim: Tara, please.
Barkin: Stoppable, you're working on my nerves!
Ron: Mr. B, shh. We got a rustle in the brush.
(Ron heads over to check in the brush, but is interrupted by Kim)
Kim: Ron, I think we've established that the squirrels mean us no harm
Ron: What's that supposed to mean?
Kim: Let's just enjoy the campfire and relax?
(as they go back, two eyes look at them through a bush)
Cheerleader: (frightened) I saw something move!
(Kim grabs a flashlight, and lights up, only to find that it was a squirrel.)
Kim: It's just a squirrel!
Ron: Just a squirrel? Really?
(we see another flashback from Ron's summer at Camp Wannaweep. Big squirrels with red eyes and sharp teeth snarls at Ron)
Camp Ron: (scared) Leave me alone!
(The squirrels break nuts with their bare paws, to frighten Ron)
(Back in present time)
Barkin: So you've always been a piece of work, huh, Stoppable?
Ron: They were bigger then!
Barkin: Sure you just wasn't smaller?
Ron: (with stubborn attitude) They were bigger!
Kim: Well, looks like we're stuck for the night. (everyone looks at Kim) Okay, let's make the best of it!
(Rufus pulls on Ron's shirt)
Ron: Yes, right. Follow me.
(At the Camp Wannaweep payphone, Kim is trying to call)
Kim: Out of order.
Barkin: I don't like this
Ron: (hinting to what he said earlier) Place of evil.
Tara: (scared) This is just like those movies. Innocent teens, stranded in a camp in the middle of nowhere. Then, some creepo starts to pick them off. One... by... one
Kim: So not the drama, Tara! This isn't a horror movie!
Ron: (lights up face with flashlight) oh, isn't it?
Bonnie: Okay, if it were a horror movie, there'd be more guys! And they would be way cuter than him!(pointing to Ron)
Ron: Oh, Bonnie. You remind me of the cruel kids at camp. Sticks and stones.
Tara: (gasps) They called you names?
Ron: Yes, while they were hitting me with sticks and stones.
(One of the bus' tires is punctured, and the bus drives wildly)
Barkin: No bus wipes out on Steve Barkin's watch!
(After the bus had stopped because of the flat tire)
Barkin: Sound off if you're hurting.
(Everyone says that they are okay)
Rufus: Ahh, phew!
Ron: I'm hurting!
Barkin: (after checking the tires on the bus) Dandy. (heads into bus)We've got two flats. Better call for help.
Bonnie: Ladies, cellphones!
(all the cheerleaders find their cellphones, and try to call. The cellphones beep)
Everyone: (In choir) No service?
Kim: That's weird. The Kimmunicator is not working either.
Barkin: Stoppable, you know the way of the land?
Ron: (anxious) Every rock, every tree, every bloodthirsty tick. It haunts me.
Barkin: Good. Where's the phone?
(Ron has a flashback of him being at Camp Wannaweep)
Camp Ron: (in telephone) Mom, hey it's me again. Yeah. Yeah, yeah, I know I called you three minutes ago, but I just wanted to ask one more time: CAN YOU PLEASE GET ME OUT OF HERE?
Ron: I seem to recall a payphone
Barkin: Lead the way
Ron: Mr. Barkin, I am no... what did you say?
Barkin: I said, lead the way!
Ron: Yeah! This is it! The one time that Ron Stoppable gets to lead, gets to call the shots, gets to be the big boss man
Kim: Ron, please just take us to the payphone!
Ron: Oh, I will! But you need to understand this: I am your only hope.
Kim: What? Ron, normal!
Ron: (after finding out that they are near Camp Wannaweep) Aaah!
Barkin: Stoppable, you got a problem?
Ron: Drive; drive fast Mr. Barkin! Drive like my life depends on it!
Barkin: What are you yabbering about!?
Ron: It was the worst summer of all time, I swore I'd never come back to Camp Wannaweep! Never!
Ron: (looking at a map) It can't be! It can't be!
Ron: It's my worst nightmare! Return to Camp Wannaweep!
Kim: Ron, you're already on thin ice with these girls. Can you try to be somewhat normal?
(the motor boat stops)
Ron: (panicked) Rufus, didn't you check to see if we had enough gas?!
Rufus: (sheepish laugh) Uh-oh.
(Gill appears in front of the boat)
Gill: Hey Ron, it's free swim!
Ron: (Pause) You're on! (Ron jumps out in the water, dives down and surfaces)
Ron: Okay, that water is WAY too funky.
Gill: (surfaces) You think?! You can't win, Ronnie! This is my element!
(Gill drags Ron underwater, a rope attaches to Gill's foot.)
Ron: (surfaces) And arts and crafts is my element!
Ron: Now, Rufus!
(Rufus starts engine)
Gill: Hey, what's going on!? You were out of gas!
Rufus: (running down and leaping off of Gill's head) Psyche!
(After the boat with Gill has crashed into the lakeside cabin)
Ron: Free swim's over!
Tara: You know, Ron, I happen to think it's kinda nice here.
Ron: Oh, really?
Tara: Sure, I mean, the woods are, you know, woodsy. And, and well, just look at the lake. It seems so peaceful.
Ron: Ah, yes. Lake Wannaweep.
Ron: How I hated that lake!
The other cheerleaders: Argh... not another story!
(Ron sparks the fire)
(Flashback of Ron, looking into the toxic green Lake Wannaweep)
Camp Ron: No... way! I'm not going into that water!
Counselor: All right, everybody jump in the lake!
(Everyone jumps into the lake, except Camp Ron. He dodges all the water that splashes towards him)
Counselor: Oh, what's wrong now, Stoppable?
Camp Ron: The lake! Have you looked at it? (Ron smells at it) Have you smelled it?
Gil: Look at Ronnie. The squeeb's scared of the water. (Gil squirts water at Ron. He screams and dodges it)
Camp Ron: I am not scared! The water is green! It stinks, and I'm pretty sure I've seen the fish glowing at night!
Counselor: Gil, weren't you in the morning swim group? You're supposed to be in arts and crafts right now.
Gil: There's no way I'm getting out to make some stupid wallet!
Counselor: You stay in there too long, you gonna wrinkle up like a prune!
Gil: Yeah, right!
Camp Ron: You know, I could take Gil's spot in arts and crafts, and he could have my afternoon swim. I mean... you know, for the whole summer?
Counselor: Oh, fine! Whatever. Just change the activity roster! We're heading for jungle law, that's all I know.
Gil: I still say you're a squeeb! (blows raspberry)
Camp Ron: We'll see who's the squeeb at the end of summer when you're all wrinkled up like a prune and I got a suitcase full of handmade wallets, potholders and lanyards.
Ron: That was the last time I ever saw Gil.
Bonnie: So, you've been a loser for, like, ever?
(Ron tries to start the motorboat, but it doesn't start)
Ron: This... does not bode well.
(Rufus kicks the engine and it starts)
Ron: Go, Rufus!
(Back at Cabin 13)
Gill: So... he ditched you.
Kim: He did not ditch us, okay? He obviously -- (motorboat engine noises) er, found a motorboat! So he could --
Bonnie: Totally ditch us.
Gill: He's out on the lake? My lake? How dumb can he be?
Gill: Did I mention that contact with this muck will turn you into a mutant? Just like me.
Kim: Well. You left that part out.
Mr. Barkin: This is SICK and WRONG!
Bonnie (screams): There is no way they are going to let a squad of mutant cheerleaders in the competition!
Gill: THERE IS NO COMPETITION! Don't you get it? It was all a trap. And guess what, Ronnie -- you're next!
Ron (making net): Mr. Rabbit comes out of his hole and hops around the tree...
Ron (backing away): Hey, Gil... (nervous laugh) Maybe this is a good time to sing the "Camp Wannaweep Friendship Song."
Mr. Barkin: (screams) Possible!
Ron: Mr. Barkin!
Kim: He's out there! Let's go!
Mr. Barkin: (covered in muck) Possible!
Kim: It's okay, Mr. Barkin! We're here!
Mr. Barkin: It's... Dripping and oozing muck, and... Gah!
Ron: Mr. B., what exactly is "It"?
Mr. Barkin: Freakish. It's, it's... Makes me ill to visualize it...
Kim: Oh, come on, I'm sure I've faced worse. (pause) Did you say "oozing muck"?
(Crashing sounds come from Cabin 13, as well as screams)
Ron: And it's back there!
(They head over to Cabin 13. It explodes, overflowing with muck. The cheerleaders are all tied to the wall, and a creature is standing in the middle of the cabin)
Mr. Barkin: That's the guy.
Ron: He is freakish.
Gill: I heard that, squeeb! Remember me?
Ron: Not really... And, I gotta tell you, I think I'd remember.
Gill: Oh, c'mon, Ronnie, think! We switched places. You took my arts and crafts, and I took your swim time.
Mr. Barkin: Gil... ?
Kim: Gil, who?
Gill: Oh, I am no longer "Gil". Now, I am "Gill"!
Ron: Uhhh... What's the difference?
Gill: I added an "l." You know, as in "gill." As in these things that grew when I mutated!
Gill: Aren't you wondering how I jammed all of your communications?
Kim: Equipment stolen from Telecommunications Camp?
Gill: (half shocked) Lucky guess.
Kim: So, you were behind the blowout on the bus, and everything! Why?
Gill: All part of my plan... to have revenge against Ron Stoppable!
Ron: Part of me is terrified. And yet part of me is flattered.
This episode was published in the Cine Manga Kim Possible Volume 6.
There is an episode of The Suite Life of Zack and Cody that has the same name of this episode.
This was the first episode of Kim Possible ever to be offered on DisneyChannel.com.
Animation Production by: Rough Draft Korea Co. Ltd.
The scene in which Kim and Mr. Barkin walk by the camera followed by Gill after they pass off screen is the exact same of shot used in nearly every episode of Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! The lighting of the scene and overall design of Gill even make the scene appear like the classic TV show.
Ron: (while making a knot) Mr. Rabbit comes out of his hole and hops around the tree...
This is reminiscent of a scene in Jaws in which Chief Brody is trying to make a knot. (The rope was tied to a barrel, which would be used to catch the shark.) This is also how many cub scouts are taught to make the bowline knot.
Tara: It's just like one of those horror movies. Teens stranded at a camp. All alone in the middle of nowhere. And then some creepo starts to pick them off. One by one.
Tara's description of "one of those horror movies" matches that of the original Friday the 13th movie.
