Shego: Could this be any easier?

Kim: Ughh, I don't think so...


Puppet Pals: (Singing) "Lalalalalalalalalalala..."

Shego: (Embarrassed and mad) "This is sooo worse than moopy."

Puppet Pal: (To Drakken and Shego) "Today's color is green. Do you see anything green?"

Shego: "Yeah, I got your green, felt face." (Shego's hands glow)

Drakken: (scared) "Shego, you're going to anger Mr. Sitdown!" (Shuts his eyes)

Shego: (Shego's glowing hands stop and she looks up) "What? (Mr. Sitdown sits on them) Oh..."


Chef Lady: "We are going to cook a fantabulous meal today using our secret ingredient: (Takes off the pot lid to show Rufus as the secret ingredient) Naked Mole Rat."

Rufus: (Screams) "AHHH!!!!" (Jumps up and out of the pot and Ron grabs him)

Chef Lady: "So, is this a family recipe?"

Drakken: (Happily) "Yes! Eh, back home we like to fry 'em up good!"


Drakken: (Annoyed) Ah, put a ham in it, you little (pops balloon) jabber mittens.

Ron: Yeah. It’s a classic I never knew existed till now.


Ron: (picks the remote and about to press it) Cool! They’ve got cable!

(Kim looks angry at Ron)

Ron: On second thought, I think I’ll stick to video games from a while.


Kim: Nice wig, Miss Tries-Too-Hard.


Shego: Great. Dweeb to the rescue.

Kim: And what makes you think you’re coming with?

Shego: Because this is way too moopy for me.

Shego: Figures.


Doctor: Nurse, the patient’s turn into a naked mole rat! I need a tox screen stat!

Ron: Ron? Ron Stoppable?

Drakken: Yes! That’s exactly who you are! I...

(explosion) (the ship shaking) (all yell)

Kim: Uh, am I missing something here?

Cain: We’re under attack by the Korpulons!


Wade: "Kim! That was Commander Cain! You're on an episode of Space Passage!" "Can you get me an autograph?"

Kim: Scaring me!


Kim: I am so not into this sci-fi stuff.

Wade: Kim, Don’t call it sci-fi! That denigrates the genre. And it sickens me.


Host: I’m sorry. You’re been voted out of the igloo. Hand in your fish.

(Kim gives the fish to the host)

Kim: Eeeeww!

(she leaves the igloo)

Kim: That... was gross.


Shego: Do you always got to be the hero?

Kim: Always got to be the pain?


Advert Announcer: ‘Bueno Nacho, where every bite is a fiesta on your tongue! Cha-cha-cha’.


Ron: Thanks, KP.

Kim: So not the drama. But that... is.

(Kim points as she and Ron sees all the monkeys blocked the whole vortex)

(all gibber)

Ron: Eewww! Gross! Monkey plug!


Host: Ok, now, pick a triangle.

Contestant: Can I pick Kim twice?

Drakken: Why doesn’t anybody pick me?

Contestant: ‘Cus you’re the creepy blue guy.

Guy: Blue is so last season.

Larson: This year it’s evil umber.

Doctor: Blue skin? That means he’s not breathing! Somebody get the jaws of life!


Kim: OK – don’t know this show.

Ron: Hey, forgot about the cable guide.

(Ron opens the magazine)

Ron: That 1670’s show.

Peasant #1: My friends, I am in dire need of a courting match.

Peasant #2: Thou art dreaming. No-one would ever court thee.

Peasant #3: Why not ask that cow thou tipp’d a fortnight ago?

(studio laughter) (applause)

Peasant #4: Well, doest thou journey here with great frequency, young maid?

Shego: Back off, barn boy!

All peasants: A witch!

Shego: A what?

Peasant #4: Get her!

(Shego gasps and run away)


Ron: Wait a minute. The shows are following the schedule!

Ron: Wade, Can you change the channel? Make Ape Island next?

Wade: “Yeah, but why?”

Ron: It began with monkeys – it’s gonna end with monkeys.


Ron: (scream as he chased by monkeys) Eeeeaaaaarrrggh! MONKEEEEEEYS!

Ron: Yes. Si. Two orders of Noccos with extra cheese, pour favour!

Rufus: (squeaks / smack lips)

Kim: Ron,... so not the time!


Shego: Just not your day... or dimension.


Voiceover: ‘Welcome to Ape Island.’

Ron: It can’t be! (heard of monkeys approaching) No... Not the...

Voiceover: ‘For the annual Running Of The Monkeys!’

Ron: (screams) Ultimate nightmare! I – (monkeys towards Ron)


Shego: Hey! what is going on? (applause)

Woman: Oh, honey, are you ok?

Shego: No, no why are you hugging me?

Woman: Because you broke up with Billy.

Shego: Who's Billy?

Girl: That's the spirit! pretend you forgotten all about him. Oh, unless you really forgotten him already. That would be like a reason to see your doctor.

(both chuckle)

Shego: Ok that's gotta stop.

(open door) (applause)

Man: Could this day get any weirder?

Shego: Finally someone else notices.

Girl: Yeah, It is kinda moopy. (laughter)

Woman: Moopy? Did you just make that up?

Girl: No, I made it up when I was seven, seven was a moopy year.

Shego: I've got to get out of this place.

Man: Oh hey, now that Billy dumped you maybe we should give it a go again you know what they say? Seventh time’s a charm.

Shego: Grrr! (throw him)

Man: Let's call that a maybe.

Shego: Cut that out!
