Despite her best efforts, Kim catches Jim and Tim's cold and passes it along to Shego, leaving Ron and Duff Killigan to take the lead.
There was much sneezing in the Possible home. Jim and Tim were suffering from a cold, which Kim was desperate not to catch. However, in spite her best efforts, it was not long at all before she was confined to bed, also sick.
Even though under the weather, Kim decided to take on a mission to guard a top secret device known as "Ray X". Believing it to simply be a matter of babysitting the thing until it was moved to a more secure location, Kim headed, certain she could handle it.
However Drakken and Shego soon arrived on the scene and, while Kim was dealing with a protracted sneezing fit, the pair walked in and grab the device. Fortunately, Kim caught them on the way out, triggering the lab's security shutters, preventing them from getting away. During the course of Kim and Shego's the fight, one of Shego's blasts goes astray, activating the sprinklers and according to automated emergency protocols, opened all the sealed security shutters to open. Which allowed Shego and Drakken to escape with Ray X, but only after Shego has taken one of Kim's sneezes right in the face.
Soon, Shego was herself out of commission the cold, prompting Drakken to seek out and partner up with Duff Killigan. Mainly because he works cheap.
Meanwhile, Kim found herself grounded after her mother found out she had gone on a mission while sick. So she was forced to stay in bed. Ron assured her he had a plan to retrieve the Ray projector, using Kim's Favor Network for rides.
Ron actually put together a fairly competent plan and to carried it out with only at least one pants-related incident. Hang-gliding scuba dive, he made to Drakken's island lair, using suction cups and bungee line to gain access and wheel Ray-X out from under Drakken and Killigan's noses while they haggled over their partnership contract. Ron ran into Shego who was too miserable from her cold to care about stopping him, and he gets away without a fight.
Once back at the Possible residence, Ron finally came down with the cold and was also forced to his sick bed.
Meanwhile Drakken got the cold as Killigan to took over the "lead villain's duties. He then Duff hired a "temporary lackey" in the form of the perky Hank Perkins. A temp agency lackey with a law degree, which Killigan accepted as "close enough" to actual villain experience. They then manage to re-steal Ray-X out from under Kim and Ron's cold-ridden noses.
With both Ron and Kim out of the running, Jim and Tim, along with Rufus, take it upon themselves to try their hand at the mission to get the device back using a modified version of Ron's plan. However, although Killigan was also under the weather, highly efficient and motivated for the "growth industry" of the evil market Hank had set a trap, catching the twins.
Upon discovering both the missing Ray-X and twin brothers, Kim, almost over her cold,was forced to leave her sick bed once more. She arrived just in time to prevent Hank from using the boys for target practice, and mixed it up with Shego, who also was almost over her cold as well. They fight as normal, except for periodically to pausing sneeze.
Between them, Kim and the Tweebs manage to roll Shego up in a rug. They then catch Hank by dropping a chandelier about him, but not before accidentally dropping another on top the Ray-X, destroying it in the process. Back at the lab, Kim asked the scientists who invented Ray-X what it did, only to find out it was meant to cure the common cold. Prompting Ron to declare how he hated irony.
