  • In need of a job.

    9.0
    Dining at a fancy place using kiddie coupons to order off the kid's menu gets really old really fast especially for a serious couple. If Ron can't find better coupons, he ought to consider getting a job to pay for a meal. Kim leads by example by applying at Club Banana. Ron however keeps having lousy luck. Meanwhile Senor Senior Junior busts Shego out of prison while not bothering getting Drakken out (who must deal with Lucre's ramblings). Junior this time asks Shego for her aid into finding a gift for his father while he plays cards with the other wealthiest people on the planet. Junior really wants to impress his dad by pulling off a serious criminal scheme. In the end Ron is awarded for an act of heroism with a job.moreless
  • Maintaining the great start to season 4

    8.5
    I really thought season 4 of Kim Possible was going to be horrible, but after watching the first few episodes, I thought different. Seriously, when the creators first thought they were ending the series in So The Drama, Kim and Ron were going out and Drakken and Shego were in jail and everything. It was a great ending to the series, but hard to continue on. So when they added a new season, they did a really good job of adding it on. It was a smooth transition and the new episodes are just as good as the other ones-maybe even better.moreless
  • Senor Senior Junior breaks Shego out of jail to help him get his father's birthday present.

    9.5
    This episode was hilarious! I loved the scene where Kim and Ron catch Senor Senior Junior in California while looking for a parking spot. It was funny seeing Kim and Shego fight, then stop to talk, and then start fighting again. I also liked the fight Junior and Ron got into while Kim and Shego were fighting. They were fighting over who would get some stupid parking spot! That's just too funny! I sort of feel sorry for Drakken though. If I were stuck in that jail cell with a guy that annoying, I would purposely knock myself out or something.moreless
  • Senor Senior Junior breaks Shego out of jail to help him steal the perfect birthday gift for his father; Kim and Ron squabble over money issues.

    8.5
    Statistically speaking, one of the main reasons that couples break up is over money, or the lack of it. Kim and Ron face this problem in “The Big Job.” Fed up with Ron constantly using coupons on everything, even their dates, Kim gets a job, in hopes that Ron will follow suit. He does evidentially, although the results are less then great. Meanwhile, Shego (Nicole Sullivan) teams up with Senor Senior Junior (Nestor Carbonell) to pull an evil heist for his father’s birthday.

    It was fun watching Shego and Junior team up again. It revisited “Two to Tutor” in which they teamed up for the first time. It also established what I think will be a running storyline for this season. I believe we will see Shego team up with other villains, before finally going back to Dr. Drakken (John DiMaggio). Speaking of which, Drakken makes a funny cameo appearance in this episode with his cellmate Frugal Lucre (Richard Kind). It made sense that world’s cheapest villain would make an appearance with the main theme of this episode is money. I think it would be a good idea to keep the good Doctor in the background for awhile. This lets Shego step out on her own, which is definitely a good thing. The episode really showed that the green lady is Kim’s most dangerous enemy, as she is both funny and threatening at the same time. Of course, Kim and Shego engage in some well choreographed fight scenes, and Ron and Junior provided some nice comic relief. This episode gives us the debut of the Kim-Mobile. Okay, her car is not really called that, but it should be! Her new wheels will give her adventures a new added dimension which will be fun to watch. In the end, Ron saves the day in his own unique way, and gets a job at Smarty Mart for his reward. So, Kim’s wish is fulfilled, but he is still very much the immature Ron he has always been. And you know that she would not want it any other way. This was a nice episode that advances the Kim and Ron romance and Shego’s role for this season. “The Big Job” does a good job!moreless
  • It deserves a raise.

    8.3
    When dining in one of Middleton’s classiest eateries, using coupons and ordering from the children’s menu just don‘t cut it on dates...at least, according to Kim. She gets a job and encourages Ron to do the same. Meanwhile, Shego gets busted out of jail, leaving Drakken behind. As it turns out, Senor Senior Junior needs her help on an evil scheme.



    Even with the expected mishaps of Ron searching for a job, “The Big Job” was a lot of fun, seeming, at times, like a first-season entry. Wherever Shego and Junior go, Kim always seems to be there, whether in South America or (in a very funny sequence) San Francisco.



    And where is Senor Senior Senior in all of this? The answer leads the partners-in-crime to a most clever idea for extortion. Other engaging bits include the normalizing of Ron’s voice (kind of a personal triumph) and the insane ramblings of Drakken’s cellmate (a special guest that I’m not about to reveal here).



    Perhaps the best episode so far in the new season.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (7)

    • The idea that Lucre was pitching to Drakken about the evil kiddie toys was the master plan Drakken used in the TV movie So The Drama, which ironically got him there in the first place.

    • After Ron was pinned to a wall by spears through his shirt, he jumped in the car and his shirt was mistakenly in one piece again.

    • Even though they are featured, Senor Senior Senior, Dr. Drakken, and Frugal Lucre are not actual villians in this episode

    • When Kim and Ron infiltrate the Seniors' island, the giant sunlamp is turned off. In past episodes, it was always on.

    • The video game that Jim and Tim are playing is reused footage from the episodes Ill Suited and Dimension Twist.

    • Kim now uses an actual grappling hook instead of her usual modified hairdryer, which she had used since "Bueno Nacho."

    • Since Disney Channel aired the episodes out of order, Kim's car is used, but it is not even made until Car Alarm.

  • QUOTES (28)

    • (Ron cuts off Junior trying to escape on a llama)
      Ron: Give it up, Junior, there's no way a llama can outrun a car!
      (The llama takes a big bite out of the left front tire)
      Ron: Okay, so maybe it can out bite a car, but that's cheating!
      (Junior and Shego escape on their llamas)

    • Martin Smarty: (After Ron rescues him from Shego) I like to reward people who save my life.
      Ron: And I like to be rewarded...you hear that, KP? A reward!
      Martin Smarty: How about a job?
      Ron: Not exactly the reward I was thinking of...

    • Ron: (after using the remote to shut off the motion activated lasers) Booyah! That's what I'm talking about! (laser begins to shoot even faster) That's not what I'm talking about!

      Junior: Good! I will make our demands known! (picks up phone and dials)
      Answering Machine: Thank you for calling Smarty Mart. For Customer Service, press one. For job opportunities, press two. To demand an enormous amount of money for the safe return of our founder, press three. (Junior looks excited and presses a button on the phone) Please enter the enormous amount of money you are demanding.

    • Shego: Not to seem ungrateful, Junior, but why did you break me out of prison?
      Junior: Well, my father's birthday is coming up and. . .
      Shego: Hold it right there, slick. I don't do cakes, okay? I don't bake 'em, and I don't jump out of 'em!

    • Dr. Drakken: They think a prison cell can hold Dr. Drakken? Ha! At this very moment, the entire criminal underworld is deciding who will have the honor of breaking me out!
      Lucre: Yeah, who? Who's it gonna be? Wait, don't tell me, don't tell me, I know! It's you!
      Dr. Drakken: Me? Lucre, think for a minute. I'm the one IN PRISON!
      Lucre: No, but you, you, you're the real genius! You. . . You'd invent some kind of a teleportation time-machine, allowing you to rescue yourself, but, no wait, no, then there would be two of you! And the inherent impossibility of two Drakkens in the same place at the same time would force the space-time continuum to repair itself, merging the two Drakkens into one, who would be...
      Dr. Drakken: Standing right where I am now?
      Lucre: Oh, you are good! Oh, yeah! Oh you're gonna take me with you right? I'll go get my stuff.

    • (Drakken and Lucre discussing how they should escape from prison)
      Lucre: Here's what you do, you demand an enormous amount of money for the safe return of the richest people in the world.
      Drakken: Lucre, lights out means lips shut!
      Lucre: Just spitballing here, but heres the twist, you don't actually abduct anyone, no, no, you just make people think youre holding them.
      Drakken: Are you sleep-talking?
      Lucre: Oh, how about this, you distribute evil robotic technology through fast food kiddie meals. Can you hear me okay through that pillow?

    • Back to the Future: Part Two:

      When Kim pushes the button to convert the car so that it flies over the cable car in San Francisco, the car looks like the DeLorean after Doc comes back from the future in Back to the Future: Part Two.

    • The Spy Who Loved Me:

      When Ron drives the car into the water, this is a reference to the classic Bond film, The Spy Who Loved Me, in which Bond drives a Lotus Elise that transforms into a submarine. Only in that movie, the car actually had aquatic capability.
