    Jack Spicer's stupidity released giant spiders on the world.Jack,Kimiko,clay,an d Raimundo get captured while omi and chase escape to save the world,but can they with the fountian of wi and eagle scope. This is exactly why I watch this show.It was full of surprises along with many twists and turns.First jack realeses giant spiders and then looses the only shengongwu that can save the world.when omi and chase escape and the others get captured by the giant spiders their seems to be no hope at all.After omi gave his word to chase young not to use the shegongwu to find a way to destroy evil he does any way. i love episodes that keep me guessing on what will happen next like this one did.This is kinda a foreshadowing or hint on what is gonna happen to Omi in the next few epiodes...hint hint.this is another reason I love XIAOLIN SHOWDOWN. This episode is about defeating giant spiders that rule the world. After Jack inadvertently releases the world's most biggest and powerful spiders, the Warriors, Jack, and Chase Young temporarily team up to stop the spiders before they proceed to consume the world. Kimiko, Raimundo, Clay, and Jack are captured while Chase and Omi escape. To look for an answer on how to defeat the spiders, they combine the Fountain of Hui and Eagle Scope. Will Omi and Chase be able to find the answer and put an end to the spiders' reign? Yes. My favorite part of this episode is when Omi and Chase get rid of the spiders and when Chase Young disappears at the end when the xiaolin dragons are in a place where everyone is taking pictures.

    Giant evil spiders destroy the world- incredible but interesting I was not seriously interested in spiders ruining our planet, but this story was fine. Chase as usual helped Omi out and cowardly Jack tried to betray everyone at the last minute. The spider thing was daft yet attracted me to figure out what would happen next. Using fire as a solution was pretty much an anticlimax, I thought it would be something more elaborate but it certainly drew Omi and dear Chase's relationship closer. Hideous Chase. Anyway, in the end Chase is very convinced Omi would join him on the dark side soon enough, and I hope that would not happen, Omi is nice. This episode is super-cool. You know, at first, I thought that it was gonna be like the episode "The Emperor Scorpion Strikes Back" or "The Demon Seed". It's just like another villain appears, and this one is very strong (can destroy the world), and there's only one Shen Gong Wu to stop it. I thought the monks will find the Hodoku Mouse and stop the spiders. But this episode is different. They didn't use the Hodoku Mouse. They combined the Fountain of Hui and the Eagle Scope to find out the way to fight against the spider, the lava. And I like when Omi smartly put Jack's Molar 2000 into auto-pilot to drill to the Earth's Core and flood the queen's chamber with molden lava. That's very creative and interesting.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (9)

    • Wuya says that she is not a girl, but is marked as female she is turned human in later episodes.

    • Chase and Omi landed in Atlantis to save the others, right? But in Enter the Dragon, Master Fung said that the last time Dojo got out of his cage was the last time they saw Atlantis (meaning that Dojo had eaten it). Did Dojo cough it back up or something? And even if he did, why would Master Fung say it was the LAST time they saw Atlantis?

    • When Chase Young and Omi arrived at Atlantis to save the monks and Jack Spicer, Chase is briefly seen without his gloves on. But in the next scene, he has his gloves on again.

    • Omi uses the Tongue of Saiping to speak with a spider, but Jack had it only a short while ago in this episode!

    • While the monks and Jack are in the spiders' lair, their positions keep changing. Wide shots: from left to right, Jack, Clay, Raimundo, Kimiko. Close ups: from left to right, Kimiko, Raimundo, Clay, Jack.

    • If what Dojo says is correct that he is 1500 years old, then in Enter The Dragon Dojo has never successfully remained inside his box for 24 hours.

    • When in the underground tunnel, Dojo's tail turned yellow when it is usually red.

    • How did the water stream in Atlantis send them up Old Faithful? Atlantis is a Greek city, and Old Faithful is in the U.S.

    • Why was Atlantis that far underground? It should be at the bottom of the ocean, but instead it's in a place that at least appears to be much deeper.

  • QUOTES (21)

    • (After the monks find the Hidoku Mouse)
      Omi: It appears Lady Luck is finally spitting on us.
      Raimundo: You mean shinning on us.
      (The Molar 2000 bursts through the wall, sending the monks into the air)
      Clay: I reckon the little guy had it right the first time!

    • Jack: Does anyone have a strange feeling that they're gonna... heave?
      Raimundo: Don't even go there! That kind of talking can get awfully contagious!
      Kimiko: I say we change the subject!
      Jack: What do you think the spiders want with us?
      Raimundo: Dude, we're in their web! Take a guess!
      Jack: (thinks for a moment then eyes go wide) I DON'T WANT A SPIDER TO EAT ME!!!!

    • Kimiko: Where are we?
      Dojo: My guess: Atlantis.
      Clay: Why Atlantis?
      (Dojo points to a sign that says 'Welcome to Atlantis')

    • Chase: Where are the others?
      Dojo: The spiders got 'em! They were everywhere! It was awful! (Starts babbling, and then notices Chase) Hey, you're one of the bad guys.
      Omi: When we find our friends, I am certain we will find the queen and the egg chamber!
      Dojo: Queen? Egg chamber?

    • Omi: We must drill to the Earth's core, and flood the chamber with molten lava. Once it hardens, the spiders will be encased forever.
      Jack: Peachy plan. Except whoever you send will wind up as toast!
      Omi: (points to the Molar 2000)
      Jack: No, no! You can't! I may be evil, but I have rights! And, uh, I burn easily!
      Omi: As tempting as that sounds, I will put the Molar 2000 on auto-pilot.

    • Jack: (After seeing spiders, he jumps on Omi's head) Protect me! Or at least hold me tight...

    • Omi & Chase: Fountain of Hui! (Dome surrounds them) Eagle Scope!(Dome fills with images)
      Omi: (Points to an image) Ooo, I did not know that! (points to another image) Ooo, I did not know that either! (Points to a third image) I did not know that I did not even know that!
      Chase: (Glaring at him) Omi! Concentrate upon the information we seek.

    • (Kimiko, Raimundo, Clay, and Jack are hanging upside-down in the spiders' lair)
      Clay: Oh, spiders don't eat folks.
      Jack: (nervously) You sure?
      Clay: Positive. They desiccate 'em! Suck out the inner fluids 'til nothin' is left!
      (Clay sucks in his fat, as though his inner fluids are being removed; stops when he sees Rai and Kim staring at him)
      Clay: ...What? A cowboy can't have a hobby?
      Jack: (freaking out) I DON'T WANNA BE - WHAT HE SAID!
      Clay: I reckon they usually start with the squirmiest!

    • Dojo: (singing crazily) I have a horse; his name is Boo. SHH! We all live in his shoe! Heeheeheehoo...
      Omi: Dojo!
      Dojo: Where am I? What year is it? How long have I been living like this...(sobs and hugs Omi)
      Omi: Thirty-eight minutes.
      Dojo: (Lets go of Omi and strokes chin) Funny. It always seems longer than that.

    • Jack: Hi, Chase. I heard you wanted to see me?
      Chase: Yes, as repulsive as I find it.

    • Master Fung: If the spiders aren't stopped --
      Raimundo: Let me guess, it's 10,000 years of darkness. Hey, I go with the odds.

    • Wuya: Use your Shen-Gong-Wu to fight these spiders like a true evil villain.
      Jack: (in a bath towel) I'm not usually modest, but I'm a little uncomfortable talking to a girl like this.
      Wuya: I'm not a girl! I'm a 1,500 year-old evil spirit!

    • Omi: I am not afraid of spiders! I eat spiders for breakfast!
      Dojo: Personally, I would prefer a nice bowl of cereal.

    • Wuya: It's the end of the world!
      Jack: This is so unfair. The one time I win, the world has to end!

    • Chase: I'm giving you a chance to make up for your ill deed and to show everyone what you're made of.
      Jack: If the spiders rip me apart, everyone will see what I'm made of!

    • Omi: That is the biggest spider I have ever seen.
      (bigger spider crawls in)
      Omi: No, second biggest!
      (bigger spider crawls in)
      Omi: THIRD BIGGEST!

    • Jack: Say hello to my wormbots!
      Clay: Why in tarnation would anyone build robotic worms?
      Jack: Hello, hat for brains. For digging?!

    • Chase: I'm giving you a chance to correct your mistakes and show everyone what you're made of!
      Jack: But if the spiders rip me up, then everyone will see what I'm made of!

    • Dojo: Oh well, at least I had a good 1500 years... I WANT TO LIVE!

    • Omi: Jack Spicer, I challenge you to a Xiaolin Showdown! The game is mud wrestling.
      Jack: But I just took a bath!

    • Omi: Looks like we'll have to kiss our backsides goodbye.
      Raimundo: Kiss our butts
      Omi: That is most disgusting.

  • NOTES (13)

  • ALLUSIONS (2)

    • The title Dangerous Minds
      could be a reference to the Elvis Presley song: Suspicious Minds...or to the 1995 movie Dangerous Minds, starring Michelle Pfeiffer as an inner-city schoolteacher.

    • This episode was a spoof of the movie Eight Legged Freaks in which giant spiders try to destroy the world.
