A creepy criminal known as Killer Moth threatens to destroy the city with a flying army of mutant moths, unless Robin agrees to take his spoiled-rotten teenage daughter, Kitten, to her junior prom. So while the other Titans are scouring the city in search of Moth's secret hideout, a reluctant Robin has no choice but to go along with the villain's bizarre demand.moreless
Starfire uses the eyebeams, which she claims she gets in the next episode, "Transformation." How could she use them now?
Starfire wore a pink sleeveless dress with no shoulder pads at the dance, but at the end of the dance, she's in her original costume and her top HAS shoulder pads.
As shown earlier, the mutant moths could eat through solid steel and wire. Why couldn't they eat through or rip off the things blocking off the basement?
How could Robin and Starfire have become Prom King and Queen if they don't even attend the school? Plus, everyone evacuated the boat (except for the two who were paralyzed by Fang's venom), so how could anyone have voted for them in the first place?
When the Titans are blocking the vents, Beast Boy turns into a jellyfish to block a vent, but then he goes back to the group. Couldn't the moths have escaped?
When Robin tears off his black suit, his gloves magically appear on his hands. He doesn't wear his gloves with the suit.
Whenever Starfire dives for Robin when he just got zapped by Fang's venom, Starfire's metal band is on the wrong arm.
When Killer Moth goes up to check on Kitten, the entrance to the basement is just an average door. When the Titans go in, however, it is a secret passage through the floor.
When Starfire gives Robin his flower, it is white, but sometimes during the episode it looks pink.
Why was Raven riding in the car with Cyborg when the Titans were chasing Fang if she can fly?
After Starfire throws her glove on the floor after slapping Kitten, it reappears on her arm without her putting it back on. Not only that, but there is a glove still on her arm even while she is slapping Kitten with it. Also, the gloves she wears do not have a glove end with fingers, but when she pulls the glove off, if you look closely it has a hand coming out of it the color of Starfire's skin, and leaves a hand-shaped mark on Kitten's face, even though Kitten is only on the screen, and slapping it with anything shouldn't have affected her at all. This entire thing makes even less sense than the chess game between Raven and Cyborg in "Overdrive."
When Starfire is holding Robin upside down, and Robin see's how the team is doing, his communicator is the wrong colors. The T is black and the outside is yellow. (It's supposed to be a white T with a black background and a yellow outline.)
Right before Starfire hit the limo, the car next to her was red, and the car far in front of her was the pink limo, but when she hit the car to her right, it was the pink limo.
When Kitten was on the screen next to Killer Moth, she was almost kissing the screen, however, when Starfire flew up and smacked Kitten, Kitten had red lipstick while she was puckering. The same thing happened when Kitten was about to kiss Robin.
When Starfire flew up and said, "'This Prom' is some manner of duel, yes?," and slapped Kitten, she took off her metal around her forearm like a glove, and it had an orange hand on it where her real hand usually is, but when Robin picked up her metal and said it was a date, it didn't have a hand on it, just the metal.
When Beast Boy screams after running into the pull chain for the light in the basement, Cyborg's robotic eye develops a pupil.
In the basement, when Beast Boy turns into a jellyfish, he changes color. He's not supposed to change color when he transforms, except for black markings on some of his forms. Why is he teal as a jellyfish?
Robin: (about the date) I have to do it.
Starfire: What?! (her boots fall and then rise again, as Robin's hair is messed up)
Robin: It's the only way that we can track down Killer Moth.
Starfire: But, but, but? (follows Robin)
Robin: I have to do it, Star, no matter how much I don't want to. (closet door opens) And I really don't want to.
Robin: (to the two frozen teenagers being wheeled away) Okay, well, sorry we pretty much ruined your prom.
Boy: Are you kidding? This was the best prom ever!
Girl: Even if I still can't move my legs!
Robin: Yeah, that'll wear off. (he and Starfire wave to them as they are being wheeled off)
Man on Intercom: (spotlights circle around them, and they get in their battle positions) And now the moment you've all been waiting for. The king and queen of this year's prom are...Robin & Starfire! (as the spotlights stop on them, much to their surprise)
Robin: I guess one more dance wouldn't kill me. (he then takes Starfire's hand and they go dance together)
Killer Moth: (Wrapping up evil monologue) ... Soon the city will bow before its new master, Killer Moth!
Kitten: Daddy, DADDY!
Robin: (about Kitten) Start your search with her.
Raven: Who is she?
Starfire: She is a Glempork not worthy of Robin's time!
Robin: (turns back to screen) Name's Kitten. She's got some kind of connection to Killer Moth. Find the connection, and I bet you'll find him.
Kitten: Fangie-poo, you really do care!
Fang: Let's never fight again, baby! (Fang holds up some jewels)
Kitten: Oh, Fang! (They kiss)
Robin: You know, you two make a really bad couple.
Beast Boy: (After Fang spits spider webbing at him that pins him to a wall) Super loogie! Eeeurgh!
Beast Boy: (About Fang) He's got a spider for a head. Not like he's gonna be hard to find.
Starfire: (Eyes flaring) Kitten is a manipulative Zorblark who does not deserve Robin's attention!
Robin: Starfire will join you on the search.
Cyborg: And you?
Robin: I can't... I have a date (Beast Boy, Raven, & Cyborg look puzzled)
Starfire: (At the Tower; Robin is frozen by Fang's poison thing; Starfire just put Robin upside down and cracked him) Are you feeling better?
Robin: Much, thanks.
Starfire: (Smiles) I welcome you.
Kitten: (Yelling) You're going to pay for this, Robbie-poo! You're going to pay!
Cyborg: So, no second date?
Robin: (Vertical shot of Starfire in her Prom dress) Starfire?
Starfire: In such occasion, I believe it is costumary to wear a dead plant? (Places white rose on Robin's tuxedo)
Kitten: Would it kill you to smile? (Robin tries to smile)
Fang: (To Robin) Keep your hands of my girl! (Kicks Robin)
Starfire: (Throws a starbolt) Keep your legs off my boy! Feeling better, Robin?
Robin: (Tearing his tuxedo off) Best I've felt all day!
Kitten: From now on, this is going to be our song.
Robin: (Desperately, to Cyborg) Please tell me you've found Killer Moth.
Kitten: (To Starfire, yelling) You ruined my dress!
Beast Boy: (About Killer Moth) For a weirdo who lives in his basement, this guy is pretty tough.
Cyborg: Not yet, but we tracked down your girlfriend's address.
Robin: SHE'S NOT MY -
Kitten: (Robin & Fang are fighting) Isn't this romantic? They're fighting over me!
Starfire: They are NOT fighting over YOU!! (Kitten & Starfire start fighting)
Kitten: And I don't want just anyone, daddy. I want someone handsome and totally cool. Someone who will drive Fang wild with jealousy. I WANT... (Shot of Robin)
Kitten: Kiss me...
Robin: Sorry. I don't like you that way. Matter of fact, I just don't like you.
Robin: Killer Moth's being taken down as we speak. We're done here. (Begins to leave)
Kitten: No, we are not! Daddy's not calling the shots tonight, Robbie-poo. I am!
Kitten: And unless you want me to let those nasty bugs out for a midnight snack, then you better pucker up! (Kitten tries to kiss Robin, but he blocks it with his finger)
Robin: Not even if you paid me!
Robin: Consider yourself dumped!
(Steps on control for the giant moths' control)
Starfire: Besides, you may require saving. This Kitten is perhaps some form of ooze monster in disguise. She certainly is ugly like a monster, yes?
Kitten: Come on, Robbie-poo. You've never ever danced before?
Robin: Tried it once, didn't like it.
Kitten: Fine, then I can have the whole city destroyed, or we can skip straight to the kissing.
Robin: Wanna dance?
Beast Boy: You know, now that nobody's making them on mutating, these little guys might actually make good pets.
Raven: Don't even think about it.
Kitten: (A pink limo arrives at the prom, Kitten steps out) Yoo-hoo! Robbie-poo! Your Kitten has arrived! Meow!
Robin: On second thought, maybe I will need saving.
Killer Moth: Unless you want your city reduced to a moth eaten waste land, you will do exactly as I say.
Robin: What do you want?
Killer Moth: My demands are simple, the city will declare me as ruler, the Teen Titans will surrender, and Robin... will take this lovely, young lady to her junior prom.
Kitten: Hi, Robbie-poo! (Robin stares at Kitten in disbelief)
Robin: Um... What was that last part again?
Starfire: Robin, who is the girl? And why does she call you "poo"? (Robin starts to crumble to pieces)
Killer Moth: Her name is Kitten, and you will take her to Prom!
Starfire: (Slapping Kitten) This PROM is some manner of duel, yes? If so, Robin eagerly accepts!
Robin: It's not a duel, Star. It's a date.
Starfire: (Gasps) Robin DOES NOT accept! Do you hear? ROBIN DOES NOT ACCEPT!
First aired on Valentine's Day.
Considering the theme and the time it was aired, this episode is somewhat of a Valentine's Day special.
This episode along with "How Long Is Forever", "Every Dog Has His Day", "Terra", "Only Human" and "Fear Itself" was released on DVD as Teen Titans: Fear Itself.
The title "Date With Destiny" is fitting. Not only with Robin and Starfire actually dancing at the end, but in the Teen Titans: Trouble In Tokyo movie, Robin and Starfire finally kissed, noting that they are "destined" for each other.
This is the second episode where we see the Robin/Starfire relationship deepen a little.The first was in "Switched," where Starfire gently held on to Robin's puppet when he was imprisoned.
Robin's "tuxedo" was like the same as a paper doll's.
Thomas Haden Church, who does the voice for Killer Moth, also played Lyle Vandergroot in the movie George of the Jungle.
Opener: Killer Moth's daughter, Kitten, screams at him about no longer having a date for the prom, since her ex-boyfriend, Fang, dumped her. Now, she wants him to get her Robin as her new date.
Robin & Starfire episode.
In the comics, Killer Moth was originally a Batman villain.
Villain(s): Kitten, Fang, & Killer Moth.
The girl in the purple shirt from "Every Dog Has His Day" appears on the dance floor in this episode.
Opening theme song is sung in Japanese.
Killer Moth's house is an exact replica of the house from The Brady Bunch.
The balloons at the prom are the marshmellow charms from Lucky Charms cereal - look for them when Fang falls and hits the table.
The Titans communicator has the exact same chirping noise when activated that the original Star Trek communicators do.
Killer Moth: House
The interior of Killer Moth's house is identical to that of the Brady Bunch home.
Robin: (About dancing) Tried it once, didn't like it.
This could be a reference to the episode "Sisters," where viewers got to see Robin bust a move on the dancefloor at the club Blackfire takes the team to.
Killer Moth: Mask
In the end, when Killer Moth is in the police van, he's wearing a mask like the one Hannibal Lecter wore in The Silence of the Lambs. If you look close, you can see it.
