Dojo Kanojo Cho
Master Fung (Season 1)
Kimiko wears two different outfits in this episode(not counting her Xiaolin robes): Kimiko's first outfit is a red and white cap that trails down her feet, a red coat with white fringe on the edge, yellow buttons, white backpack with wings on the back and furry white knees lenght boots.
Kimiko's second outfit is a pink kimono with a yellow sash and yellow linings on the edge of the cuffs on the kimono.
Why is Kimiko the one who shows more signs that she struggles with her kimono when she's wearing her cultural attire? If anyone should be struggling with their new clothes it should be Raimundo and Clay. (Reply: Kimiko was raised in modern Japan, as the daughter of a rich game designer. Therefore, she has likely never worn a kimono in her life, as her typical attire in Japan would have been a t-shirt and pants. plus, kimonos are most commonly worn on special occasions, which Kimiko would likely not have attended many of.)
When Jack is about to take the monkey staff he is well within arm's reach of it. But when Kimiko takes the staff with the comb he needs to take a few steps to get to it.
If Omi says Kimiko's lipstick tastes so bad, why does he continue eating it?
When Kimiko takes the Monkey Staff from Jack she never calls out its name before she uses it. Don't you usually call out a Shen-Gong-Wu's name before you use it? (Reply: This also happened in the episode 'The Year of the Green Monkey.' Apparently if someone stays in contact with the monkey staff long enough, it slowly turns them into a monkey even if they don't activate it.)
This is the first time the Monks lose a Xiaolin Showdown.
Wuya says that the Monkey Staff slowly turns the owner into a monkey the longer it's held. However, every other time it's used, it instantly turns the owner into a monkey.
In the second showdown, Jack never said what Shen-Gong-Wu should be wagered. (Reply: It assumed since both the Monkey Staff & Tangle Web Comb were visible when the Showdown was called, the audience is to assume those are the wagered Wu, which they are.)
Kimiko does the Xiaolin Showdown in her kimono and wooden sandals. Don't the warriors change to their "uniform" when they enter a Xiaolin Showdown? (Reply: The Xiaolin Warriors are in the Emperor's Palace. This is a mystical and formal place, so they still need to keep the fancy clothes on instead of changing their clothes.)
In this episode, the Jet Bootsu are revealed. They allow the owner to walk on walls. But in the first episode, while Omi is talking to Master Fung, he knows how to walk on walls. So, couldn't he have just taught the Xiaolin Warriors that technique? (Reply: As shown in "My Homey Omi" and "Mala Mala Jong," the Jet Bootsu let you float even when you're not touching ground. However, with the Monkey Staff showdown, Omi could've taught Kimiko to walk on walls. It also might have just been something Omi could do.)
Kimiko was rather silly to use the Fist of Tebigong. She could've used the Mantis Flip Coin to jump up the mountain, or the Third Arm Sash to climb the mountain / reach the Monkey Staff. Now isn't that silly? (Reply: Jack probably named the beginning showdown.)
Kimiko: I'm hoping to get a little more respect around here.
Raimundo: You got it, monkeybutt.
Omi: (after losing the bet) Okay, we shall do your chores for the next two weeks.
Raimundo: Four. We doubled again, remember?
Omi: Actually, I was hoping you would forget.
Jack: (watching Kimiko fall) It helps if you don't fall on your butt.
Raimundo: (watching Kimiko struggle with the Xiaolin Showdown) Anybody wanna double our little wager again?
Clay: (watching the Jack-bot fall) Thanks for dropping by. Or, just dropping.
Jack: Jack-bots! Get rid of them! And give me some gingerale.
Raimundo: (watching Kimiko struggle upstairs) Anybody want to double our bet? Say, two weeks of chores?
Omi: I think Kimiko's clothing is most appropriate. She at last resembles a girl.
Omi: So the Golden Tiger Claws are in that palace?
Dojo: That's what this rash is telling me. I wonder if there's an ointment for this?
Wuya: Drop the Monkey Staff! The longer you hold it, the more monkey-like you'll become!
Jack: (eating a banana) I don't see it.
Jack: (swinging from his lab equipment) Look at me! I'm a monkey in a tree!
Omi: I am surprised Kimiko can lift such an incredibly heavy pot with her delicate female arms.
Kimiko: (spilling the tea) WHAT!?
Kimiko: (struggling with the Tangle Web Comb) I never met an accessory I couldn't handle!
Omi: (referring to the Shen Gong Wu) It's here?
Kimiko: As in right here?
Dojo: That's what 'here' traditionally means.
Omi: I believe her failure was due to her lack of upper body strength.
Kimiko: I'LL SHOW YOU UPPER BODY STRENGTH!!!
Raimundo: Look out! She might use her slip and fall move on you.
Omi: Oh, Kimiko. Please, do not feel sad.
Kimiko: I don't! And I don't need your pity either!
Omi: I was merely going to point out that you could not expect to do better since you are a girl.
Kimiko: PARDON ME!!!
Jack: (to Kimiko) Classic miscalculation: your hot little head has ensured your defeat.
Jack: You know this is a showdown, right Kimiko?
Kimiko: You know those boots make you look like a dweeb! Right, Jack?
Jack: I am SO loving this! I have a tail! (tail wiggles) See? I'm happy.
Omi: A stairway into the darkness. How very...
Omi: (Timidly) Yes!
(After Kimiko uses the Monkey Staff for too long)
Omi: Girls have tails?!
Clay: Aren't we supposed to be wearing our formal duds?
Omi: These are my formal robes. The thread count is slightly higher. Notice the exquisite sheen!
Omi: These are lion claws. That's close!
Raimundo: But no dice.
Omi: Oh, dice. Are we looking for dice, too?
Wuya: Quit your incessant moaning and get the Tiger Claws, you fool!
Jack: Can't help it. I'm banana-nauseated.
Wuya: I cannot believe your incompetence! You lost yet another Xiaolin Showdown!
Jack: Couldn't help it. I had bananas and tire swings on my mind.
Ashley: So, I guess you're Jack - the guy they're all talking about upstairs?
Jack: They're talkin' about me? What do they say? That I'm a genius?
Ashley: Nah, more like weirdo.
Jack: Weirdo? Weirdo?! What's so weird about me?! (Smashes a table) Ooh, my monkey strength.
Wuya: With the Tiger Claws in our arsenal, we shall be invincible!
Jack: You think I could get a tire swing installed in here?
Omi: Oh yes! (reading the "Ancient Guide to Females") Females are easily frightened!
Kimiko: You're lucky you're cute, Omi.
Wuya: (referring to the Jack-bots) Why do you build these stupid machines? They are useless!
Jack: My mom said I needed a hobby. (Burps)
Omi: Yuck! This candy is most unpleasant!
Raimundo: That's 'cause it's lipstick.
Kimiko: (referring to the Shen-Gong-Wu) This one's all mine!
Raimundo: Kim's right. It should definitely be hers. She has to replace the one she just lost.
Raimundo: Sorry! I mean, the two she just lost.
Omi: (Kimiko dives into the water) Do girls know how to swim?
Raimundo: It's a ... comb. Cute.
Clay: I think it's great you found a comb, Kimiko.
Omi: Oh, yes. Accessorizing is within your talents - as a female.
Raimundo: You guys want to go look through Kimiko's stuff?
Omi: Ohh! I have never looked through a girl's stuff before! This should be enlightening!
This marks the first time we see Clay's battle opening.
For once, Kimiko has competed in the most Showdowns. (Omi has most at the end of the third series.)
Kimiko competes in her first Xiaolin Showdown.
We get the fell that Raimundo might have a slight crush on Kimiko when he bets that she will find her inner peace, declaring at the end of the episodes.
"See, I told you guys that she would find it" (That or something close) Whether or not this is true lies in future episodes.
In this episode, Raimundo, Clay and Omi bet on 4 weeks of chores thinking that Kimiko can't win, Raimundo vs Clay and Omi. Raimundo bets that she can win, while Clay and Omi believe she can't. This shows that Raimundo believes in Kimiko more than what Omi and Clay do.
This is the first time one of the monk's clothes do not change to the usual robes during a Xiaolin Showdown.
This is the first time Jack actually wins a Xiaolin Showdown.
Jack and Kimiko's Showdown for the Monkey Staff is the first showdown to have already started before the show began.
Jack Spicer either didn't know about the activation of the Tangled Web Comb or just didn't care because he did not attempt to retrieve it from Scotland.
Locations Of Shen Gong Wu:
Jet Bootsu: Unknown because Jack already had it when we first see him.
Monkey Staff: On top of a tall pillar.
Tangle Web Comb: In a bottom of a Loch in Scotland (likely the Loch Ness)
Golden Tiger Claws: Under the Emperor's Palace.
When Kimiko loses the Fist of Tebigong in this episode, it slowly disappears off of her hand. In other episodes it just appears with the winner of the showdown.
Jack already had the Jet Bootsu at the start of the episode and their location was never shown or mentioned.
When Ashley first enters Jack's lair, she passes by a table with lab bottles and beakers. When she passes the last one -- a beaker with liquid above an empty one with two spouts on each end -- she passes her face on the lower one and the reflection shows her in her catlike face, serving as a hint to who she will become in the future.
Kimiko's first outfit: A red and white cap that trails down her feet, a red coat with white fringe on the edge,yellow buttons, white backpack with wings on the back and furry white knees length boots.
Kimiko's second outfit: A pink Kimono with a yellow sash and yellow linings on the edge of the cuffs on the kimono.
When Kimiko calls her father, she says 'Mushi Mushi'. This is Japanese for "hello" (0n the phone, otherwise konichiwa), and is the one word a fox in disguise cannot use.
Jack now has the Jet Bootsu and Fist of Tebigong. The Warriors now have the Tangle Web Comb, Monkey Staff, and the Golden Tiger Claws.
Jennifer Hale has experience playing a cat-like character, for she has provided the voice of Black Cat for the Fox Kids' Spider-Man series.
As well as his 40-foot dragon form, Dojo can also morph into boats.
Katnappé also has three 'genetically altered superkittens' as minions (like Jack has Jack-bots).
Showdowns: Kimiko vs. Jack - First to the top of the mountain for the Monkey Staff. Kimiko vs. Jack - First across the bridge for the Golden Tiger Claws. Kimiko's Fist of Tebigong against Jack's Jet Bootsu; Kimiko's Tangle Web Comb against Jack's Monkey Staff.
Dojo is related to the Loch Ness Monster!
New villain: Katnappé. A thief with cat-like abilities.
Featured Shen-Gong-Wu: Tangle Web Comb, Monkey Staff, Jet Bootsu, Golden Tiger Claws.
Kimiko doesn't change her hairstyle in this episode.
The glow of the Tangle Web Comb underwater is similar to the glow of treasure chests made underwater from the game: Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker.
Reference: Star Wars Episode IV.
The part where Kimiko is remembering what Master Fung says about the Tangle Web Comb, is similar to the part where Obi-Wan Kenobi reminds Luke of the force.
Title: Tangled Web
The episode title is a spoof of the phrase "A Tangled Web of Lies".
