    When trying to save a scientist from Dr. Drakken’s secret arctic base, Kim and Ron are hit with a truth ray which forces them to speak the absolute truth about every issue. Kim soon discovers that this is a huge embarrassment while Ron is enjoying his newfound truth potential, but can they get through the day without causing themselves huge problems? Well Ron can cause less trouble and Kim can cause more trouble. This episode was 1/2 length episode and the other half is the episode named The Truth Hurts. My favorite part of this episode is when we see Ron say the truth, all the truth and nothing but the truth.moreless
  • Silly, yes, but quite fun....

    8.0
    Kim loses her ability to lie after being hit with Drakken's truth ray...and is faced with the consequence of blurting out what's on her mind, totally uninhibited. We would have to wait a while for her to admit her true feelings for Ron, of course, but we do learn Kim is a closet nose-picker. Oddly Ron, under the ray's effects, seems to enjoy an almost Howard Sternesque celebrity status around school for speaking his mind without fear. (This being Disney, of course, he couldn't tell Mr. Barkin to shove his boring book up his butt sideways.) Drakken and Shego drop out of the script--literally--a bit too soon; I'd rather have liked to see them suffer the effects of their dunking in frigid water (perhaps a bad cold, as a throwback in this short's companion "Sick Day"?) The highlight of the piece is Kim's desperate struggle to stifle her Judas mouth with a pillow and her loud assertion that aliens could see her father's coworker's cheap rug from space.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (6)

    • During the episode while the cheerleading interview's going on Kim says she can't sleep without her Pandaroo. But other episodes when you see her in bed there is no Pandaroo.

    • Kim said two lies while she was under the truth ray. The first was that she could tell a lie and the second was that aliens could see her dad's partner's hairpiece was fake from space. Of course, this second was technically an exaggeration for comic effect, not really a lie. And it seems the truth ray not only keeps you from lying but robs you of all sense of tact and decorum!

    • In the beginning of this episode Kim has her yellow outfit. (Yellow T-shirt with blue star, and blue jeans). However, after she saves the day and finishes cheerleading practice she leaves school wearing her green tank-top and shorter blue jeans. It is possible that she might have had a change of clothes at school, but I wanted to point this out.

    • When Kim and Ron are in the jet on the way to Drakken's ice lair, both have white straps over their shoulders, and as they eject, these straps disappear from Ron.

    • As Ron says, "I know it's not the coolest thing to admit," his mouth cel overlaps his left hand twice.

    • Ron's mouth disappears briefly during his reaction to Kim after he asks "Nana?" on the phone.

  • QUOTES (10)

  • NOTES (3)

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • Kim: The color of my hair is greeeeeee...red

      This is a reference to the Jim Carrey movie Liar, Liar, as is the rest of the episode. This quote is similar to the one in the movie, where Carrey's character looks at a blue pen and tries to say its red, with the same effect, except his went on for several minutes, until his posessed hand wrote that the pen was blue all over his face. Some others include that in both, they are in that condition for one day and that both Kim and Carrey try the tactic of covering their mouth, and both fail.
