"Crush" is the first aired episode of Kim Possible, premiering on June 7, 2002, although it was the thirteenth episode produced.

Synopsis

The day begins with Ron searching in his locker for Rufus. After Rufus is found, Ron notices Kim staring across the hallway, enraptured. As Ron turns around, he sees that it is Josh Mankey that Kim is staring at. Neither he nor Rufus are impressed by Josh.

Kim approaches Josh, but is unable to talk to him, and just ends up rambling. Kim then announces her intentions to Ron about wanting to ask Josh to the Spirit Week Dance. Ron responds stating that won't Josh feel weird going with them, as they always go together. Kim responds saying that's as friends, and this time she wants a date. Ron announces then he will also bring a date to the dance. Wade calls Kim to inform her of a situation in Tokyo involving her arch nemesis Dr. Drakken. Kim and Ron then hitch a ride with Britina to Tokyo, and on the flight, Ron makes his first failed attempt at getting a date for the dance by asking Britina if she wants to dance with him.

Upon arriving in Tokyo, Kim and Ron are introduced to Nakasumi-San and informed that his factory has been taken over and that its two workers are trapped inside. As Kim and Ron infiltrate the factory Ron comes to the conclusion that Drakken is trying to steal Christmas, Kim is doubtful and convinced it's a take over the world plot. Kim and Ron locate the hostages and Kim gives Ron the Kimmunicator so he can distract Drakken while she frees the hostages. Ron's distraction works, and Kim is able to free both hostages. Drakken discovers Kim and Ron, and prepares to tell them his plan. However, Shego interrupts, pointing out when ever he does this, Kim wins. Drakken then activates a series of cables, which are attached to the factory's production line, and then proceeds to escape with the production line, his henchmen, and Shego by helicopter.

The next morning Kim is at breakfast with her father as he reads in the paper about Kim's exploits the previous evening. Kim starts telling her dad about the Josh situation and how she wants to take him to the dance. Kim then begins telling her mother about Josh, when Jim and Tim interrupt saying Kim should send Josh an anonymous email through Sweden. Her father then recalls that Jim and Tim's principal has been getting anonymous emails from Sweden, at which point the boys disappear. Kim's mom then gives Kim some advice on how to talk to Josh.

Kim tries several times throughout the day to ask Josh out but is unable to do so. Ron likewise tries several times to find a date, but is rejected each time. Kim plans to talk to Josh as he paints a banner for the dance; however Bonnie's arrival causes Kim to decide to ask him after cheer practice. During practice, the Kimmunicator rings and the distraction causes Kim to fall over, ripping Josh's banner.

KP 2

Ron surrounded by Drakken's henchmen

Kim and Ron follow up a tip on Drakken's newest lair, which leads them to a fortress deep in a snowy mountain region. Wade is unable to shut down the sensor beams around it. However he is able to increase the beams frequency thus making them visible to the human eye. As Kim announces they can't touch the beams, Ron crashes into her and both head into the field of laser beams. They manage to avoid the beams, unfortunately Rufus slides into one, setting off an alarm and causing them to be captured. Kim and Ron are then taken inside Drakken's lair and surrounded by henchmen. Kim leaps over the henchmen to fight Shego on a catwalk above them. As the henchmen close in on Ron, he calls for help. Kim proceeds to throws him a tin of lip gloss. Ron threatens the henchmen with the tin, causing them to burst out laughing. Kim tells Ron to hold his breath and open the lid, which he does, releasing a potent stink which knocks out the henchmen. Kim then uses the lip gloss on Shego, knocking her out as well. Drakken then appears, and Ron tells him he knows of his plan to steal Christmas, to which Drakken replies "not even close".

Drakken then uses the factory assembly line he stole to form the ultimate robot warrior. As Drakken begins his rampage around his lair, Kim calls Wade, who informs her that Nakasumi built an override into his factory's system. Ron then distracts Drakken while Kim climbs up the robot's back searching for the override. As Drakken attempts to remove Kim from his back, he inadvertently reveals the override switch. Kim plugs the Kimmunicator into the override and Wade begins hacking into the robot. Ron attempts a flying kick on the robot, but is caught in mid-air by Drakken. As Ron hangs upside down, Rufus falls out of his pocket. Kim uses her hair dryer to swing down and rescue Rufus. As Drakken prepares to vaporize Kim, Wade gains control of the robot and then uses the robot to hang Drakken upside down like Ron.

KP 3

Kim and Josh

However, Shego is quickly able to disable Wade's control of the robot. Both Shego and Kim jump into the cockpit and fight for control over the robot. This causes Drakken and Ron to be flung around on the outside of the robot. During the fight, Ron and Drakken are released from the robot's grip and Shego is able to cause Kim to fall out of the cockpit. However Kim is able to use her hair dryer to entangle the robot's legs during her descent. As the robot tips over, Kim uses her rocket skates to move herself and Ron to safety.
Crush

On her return to Middleton, Kim plans to ask Josh to the dance, however as Josh gets closer to her position, Kim freaks out, hiding in the janitor's closet. Ron encourages Kim and she leaves the closest and starts talking to Josh who agrees to go with her to the dance. As they walk away together, Ron announces his need for the ride to the dance. However, Kim slams the door close to the janitor's closet. Kim is then seen dancing with Josh at the dance. During the dance, the Kimmunicator beeps, but she switches it off and continues to dance with Josh. As the episode ends it turns out that poor Ron is still trapped in the janitor's closet.

Trivia

General

  • Though this is the first episode aired, Kim's familiarity with Drakken and Shego reinforce its place as taking place later in the first season.
  • Throughout the entire episode, Kim's hair dryer is purple, even though in all other episodes it is red.
  • Roughly 3 minutes and 30 seconds into the episode, while on Britina's plane, Ron and Rufus are shown holding drinks. The scene cuts to a close up of Britina's face for about 1 second when she says "Kim, duh, it's the least I could do after you saved my Chicago show". After the cut Ron and Rufus are no longer holding their drinks; and at 3:40 you can see they are not on the table behind Kim.
  • When Ron asks Britina to the dance, his freckles appear mid-scene. He is also missing the right temple arm on his sunglasses.
  • During their infiltration of the Nakasumi factory, Kim unhooks a length of rope from her belt, but in the next scene she shoots black cable from her hair dryer and the rope is never seen again.
  • When Drakken points to Ron's hiding place he is missing his scar.
  • When Ron gets pushed against the wall with the forklift his freckles are missing.
  • When Shego is telling Drakken not to blab about his plan, she is briefly missing her mouth.
  • The colors on Shego's arms and legs are reversed as she is jumping onto the now airborne Nakasumi factory.
  • When Dr. Possible (Dad) says, "Josh?", his eyebrows are gray.
  • When Dr. Possible (Mom) says "Golden...that's good, right?", her lower lip is shaded.
  • For a moment, when Ron's holding Rufus in Heinrich's snow-mobile thing, his hands are flesh-colored, when he should be wearing gloves.
  • When Kim is hanging from the scaffolding fighting Shego, Shego's left boot is black, instead of its usual green.
  • While Kim is performing a back handspring to evade some cannon fire, she is holding her hair dryer, but in the scenes immediately before and after she is empty-handed. This is also interesting because of the four hair dryer appearances in this episode, this is the only time it is red.
  • When Drakken sees Kim climbing up the back of the robot she is missing her left glove.
  • When Kim uses her hair dryer to catch Rufus, she is missing both of her gloves.
  • When Ron is hanging upside down when the Ultimate Robot Warrior grabs him, Rufus falls out of his pocket. After Kim rescues Rufus, she puts him in her pocket. But when Kim rocket skates to Ron's rescue as the Robot is falling, Rufus is back with Ron.
  • This episode was nominated for a 2003 Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Animated Program (for Less Than One Hour). It lost to The Simpsons.
  • An uncredited song, I.C.U. (And My Heart Just Stops), can be heard during the Spirit Week dance.
  • This episode was nominated for an Emmy Award for Outstanding Animated Program (less than one hour in length) in 2003. It was the first episode in the series to be nominated for any Emmy.
  • When Kim asked Ron, why doesn't he get a normal pet. One not naked, it has not been revealed that Mr. Stoppable is allergic to every kind of fur, and the only kind of pet that Ron could get, would be a naked pet. This is discovered in A Sitch in Time: Past, and it is again mentioned in "Rappin' Drakken". Although, if Kim has really known Ron since they were both four years old, she would already know this, because they have already had this discussion before their first mission in A Sitch in Time.

Running Gags

  • Ron thinking that Dr. Drakken's evil plan is to steal Christmas, a far cry from the truth.
  • Ron is constantly asking girls who will go to the Spirit Dance with him, only to be rejected.

Allusions

  • "Britina" is a combination of Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera, two famous real-life pop stars.
