  • Silly, yes, but quite fun....

    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.
