|Boy: (in hallway) I came out a Green Guppy. (waves Animology book)
Junior: (about Kim) I would like to know this Blue Fox person.
Junior: It says the Yellow Trout only cares about himself. They make that sound like a bad thing.
Ron (chasing Amelia): Wait! I'm a textbook sloth! Outcast, follower, socially inept! I smell like corn dogs!
Ron (after his feet have been frozen): I've got footsicles!
SSS: Ahhh, Kim Possible. And so, our little game of cat and mouse goes on, huh?
Ron: Are we the cat or the mouse?
SSJ: (chuckles) Mouse.
Ron: But *we* were stalking you. That's cattish, my friend.
SSJ: This is a good point.
Wade: That smell? Cologne. Very expensive. Custom blended for an exclusive clientele. Guess who's on the list.
(Kim thinks for a moment)
Kim: Señor Senior, Jr.
Wade (defeated): Right.
SSJ: Why did you not just aim the laser at their bodies?
SSS: Junior, if you do not understand these traditions of villainy, I have failed as a father.
SSJ: Did we not leave Kim Possible on a conveyer belt to her doom?
SSS: Yes. A proper villain always leaves his foe when he's about to expire.
SSS: Well, it would be bad form just to loll about waiting for it.
[ While the two lie strapped to the cryovator's conveyer belt ]
Kim: My perfect match can NOT be Señor Senior, Jr.!
Ron: Oh, I'm sure you'll be real happy together... if he can defrost you!
Ron: What could be bigger than mini corndogs?
Kim: You are such a Pink Sloth.
|As Bonnie attempts to wave Amelia over, the, erm, "solidly-built" cheerleader from "Tick-Tick-Tick" is back and sitting with Bonnie, along with a pony-tailed cheerleader, who, though we see only the back of her head, doesn't resemble any of those seen on the squad before or since. The latter's hair also changes from black to blonde, as she gains a bracelet (or wristband) and loses an ear.
The photo of Drakken on the inside of Kim's locker door vanishes as an embarrassed Kim indirectly admits to taking the Animology quiz, because she "can't resist a challenge".
Junior's given a wandering mole in a couple of the opener's shots.
Ron's perpetual cowlick poofs out between shots, from a few thin hairs to a massive tuft, as Kim leaves him and his Animology book to head for practice.
Cleanup Goof: Just before the above, a stray line appears beside Ron's nose (presumably mistaken for a nostril).
The pony-tailed cheerleader is also on the bleachers near the episode's beginning -- but as a redhead, this time.
The cheerleader sitting behind Bonnie on the bleachers has black hair in the wide shot, and blonde when we cut in closer.
Is Phillipe Bullion's monogrammed medallion on a chain, or pinned to his clavicle? If that line beneath his ample chin is meant to be a chain (rather than simply a neck crease), it detaches several times, leaving the gold piece floating on Phillipe's upper chest.
When Kim says "Good little hairless rodent", one of Ron's feet can be seen, clearly not frozen.
Continuity error: Pop-pop Porter. Kim knows nothing about him in this episode, though she interacted with him in "All the News".
The Billionaire Club lobster (which is so large that it appears to have an apple in its mouth) is facing the wrong way as Junior tears off a claw. The contents of the table it sits on are also very inconsistent, and, in this specific case, none of the candles, grapes, and glasses that are sometimes seen in wider shots are present.
Bullion's copy of "Euro Today" disappears from the table from the time he sets it down, to the time he picks it up again.
As seen in the pics for the lobster and Euro Today goofs, the picture on the front of Junior's Animology book temporarily disappears.
When the cryovator first arrives at the Billionaires Club, the swimsuit on the woman at the far left of the screen first changes from an apparent one-piece to a bikini, then swaps colors with that of the beach's other bikini-clad sunbather.
How exclusive can the Billionaire's Club be? Among those seen fleeing its island: three of Middleton High's more ubiquitous students and three of the Mad Dog Squad's cheerleaders (including the mysterious Ponytail).
When Kim goes to cheerleader practice, she goes through the single door of a Middleton High classroom yet when she gets to the other side they're the double doors of the gym. Someone could say that is not actually a goof because the two shots are not technically consecutive, but the intervening shot is Ron blinking his eyes twice, and there is only one sound of a door opening and closing.
The exterior of Middleton High is shown five times, utilizing three sequences of flag animation. In the sequence used for the first and fourth shots, the flag has no stars, in the second shot, it has has five, and in the third and fifth, there are seven.
Kim's eyes alternate between green and grey thoughout the episode.
Logistics error: During the call from Wade about Pop-Pop Porter, Kim says she "avoids fried foods." Yet she eats often at Bueno Nacho. After all, they're not called reBAKED beans.
Addition to Logistics error: Kim's breakfast in "Twin Factor" - bacon and eggs? So fried!
At the end of the episode, after Wade has delivered Senor Senior, Jr.'s e-card, Wade laughs with his hands in the air. His left arm is hidden behind his computer monitor. As the screen fades to black, the monitor fades away and Wade's left arm can be seen.
When Ron is polishing off those millions of corndogs and he flicks away one of the cocktail sticks, he has no gloves.
As Kim and Ron are lying on the conveyor, Kim's glove goes missing twice: The first time before they start moving, and the second as Rufus runs out of Ron's pocket to push the red button.
As Kim takes the animalogy quiz, her tongue is colored white, not pink, as she sticks it out.
^-- Either those are her teeth, and not her tongue, or somebody mistakenly assumed this to be the case. Considering all frames: I'm going to have to go with the former.
In the opening sequence, SSS and SSJ escape via jet packs, however prior to the opening of the vault, they are not wearing any.
^-- The jet packs could've been hidden. In all of the 007 flicks, they always have hidden parachutes for aerial stunts.
^-- The jetpacks are bulky, metal, and appear seemingly without disturbing the Seniors' relatively close-fitting clothing. Were this not an animated series, the "hidden" theory would be entirely implausible... unless, perhaps, the jetpacks were hidden off their persons. The safecracker robot is large enough to conceal the packs, but its tentacles would have to work almost impossibly fast to distribute them during the quick cut to SSS's remote control.
When the flowers fall out of Kim's locker, some of the flowers can be seen to the left of the monitor. When the locker is seen from the front, these flowers are gone.
The Middleton High gym doors are blue in this episode instead of the usual orange.
As Kim says "Señor Senior, Jr." after Wade gets the air quality anaylisis, her shirt sleeves are longer than they should be (down past her gloves).
During the segment where Ron's trying to convince Kim how great Animology is, the spine of the book he's holding changes sides several times.
Ron and Kim board Pop Pop Porter's "big 'lil corndog" in their normal outfits, without any extra baggage, save for Kim's backpack. In the next shot they appear in (presumably after the ride), they're both wearing their mission outfits. I know cargo pant pockets are big, but big enough to hold entire outfits? And as long as I'm here, Kim's backpack vanishes in the shot where the blimp lands, just before Ron walks over to it.
When Kim and Ron are on the conveyer belt, they pass the same set of stairs three times.
The commercial seen in this episode for Pop Pop Porter's frozen corndogs is also seen (on the TV screen) in "Pain King Vs. Cleopatra".
SSS's remote control looks similar to the ones that Dr. Fenster and Dr. Director use.
The soldiers guarding the "experimental prototype" wear the same uniforms as those guarding the Nevada lab in "The Twin Factor". The entire group also consists of the same two soldiers repeated over and over again, perhaps most noticably as the Seniors escape. Is the government cloning?
The Drs. Possible were able to find each other without the help of Animology.
There is a sorta romantic happening at the end when Kim (a blue fox) finds out Junior is a yellow trout, her match. There probably could be a few love notes going to Kim from SSJ in future episodes.
Kim and Ron's argument about "crime...corndogs" follows the same as their "steal Christmas...take over the world" argument in "Crush".
This episode marks the first appearance of Pop-Pop Porter, whose products will be seen and/or referenced in: "All the News" (appearance by PPP, fleet of food-shaped blimps), "Sink or Swim" ("food-style" pork wafers), "Low Budget" (mini pizza bagels), and "Pain King vs. Cleopatra" (mini corn dog commercial).
Clothes and Animology
Just as an example
Kim = blue pants = blue fox
Junior = yellow shirt = yellow trout
Dad = beige shirt = beige raccoon
Bonnie = purple cheerleading outfit = lavender mouse
Amelia = red pants = red otter
This is the second time on the show Ron has had a rotten banana (first time being in his locker in "Crush").
When Bullion shows the issue of "Euro Today" to SSS, the two pics on the cover are stills from "The New Ron".
About the soldiers at the vault
Note also, the Middleton PD's SWAT team that showed up to arrest Drakken in "Tick-Tick-Tick" and the The Knights of Rodeghan in "Royal Pain" also wear the same uniform.
|SSJ and SSS: "Father, if I was a tree, what tree do you think I would be?" "Ah, one that would be banned from the Billionaire Club, Junior."
This exchange is similar to one in the movie "Mallrats." While trying to win his girlfriend back on a dating game show, the ex-girlfriend asks "If you were a car, what kind of car would you be." To which the boyfriend replies "The kind you wouldn't dump your boyfriend in."
No Speaker: No Quote
[^-- Much more likely, it's in reference to Barbara Walters and her infamous query (of Katharine Hepburn): "If you were a tree, what kind of tree would you be?".]
Pop-Pop Porter's mini corn dog commercial, in which a smiling corn dog dives into a pool of batter and stands under a flash freezer beam, is not dissimilar -- even in styling -- to a classic black-and-white M & M's commercial, in which, if memory serves, a smiling peanut dives into a pool of chocolate and stands under a candy-coating shower.
