Plot Summary

Kim and Ron are having problems with Bonnie Rockwaller and Mr. Barkin respectively. On a mission to stop Professor Dementor from stealing something from a top secret research facility, they're unable to stop Dementor from stealing the facility's invention, but Ron, unknowingly, ended up with Dementor's invention called a "Bondo Ball," which can bind people together at points on their bodies.

Once back in Middleton, Ron ends up being bonded to Mr. Barkin at the shoulder while Kim gets bonded to Bonnie at the hip. Until they or Wade can find a solvent that will get them unstuck, Kim and Ron have to deal with being stuck to Bonnie and Barin, respectively. Ron finds out that Mr. Barkin acts as a den mother to a troop of Pixie Scouts in Middleton—or "Brigadier Pixie" as he calls it. Kim discovered that Bonnie's home life was not easy for her when she met Bonnie's got two older sisters named Connie and Lonnie who are just as mean to Bonnie as she typically is to others. After Connie and Lonnie leave after insulting Bonnie, Kim's shown to be feeling uncomfortable and actually kind of sorry for Bonnie.

On a tip from Wade, Kim and Bonnie head for Dementor's Bavarian Alps hideout but are captured by him and his giant mutant Dachshunds. Wade alerts Ron and Mr. Barkin while they were at the Middleton Community Center to tell them what happened to the girls. The Pixie Scouts accompany him and Mr. Barkin on a rescue mission. While the two cheerleaders were hooked up to a machine of Dementor's, Kim apologizes to Bonnie for dragging her into the situation, but Bonnie assures Kim that it was actually kind of fun--Kim also admits that she has a better understanding of why Bonnie acts the way she does.

Ron, Mr. Barkin, and the Pixie Scouts manage to save them—with Kim revealing that she was once a Pixie Scout herself—while Kim and Bonnie use their cheerleading skills to kept Dementor from escaping.

Back at the Middleton Community Center, everyone's celebrating defeating Professor Dementor and getting separated from each other with a solvent. Ron's made an honorary Pixie Scout and, badly, raps about it, weirding out Bonnie and especially Kim.

Trivia

  • It can be presumed Bonnie's sour disposition probably stems from her sisters, Connie and Lonnie, making their only physical appearance, always being so mean to her.
    • Connie claims to have gotten "all the brains" while Lonnie claims to have gotten "all the looks," leaving Bonnie to have gotten "the rest."
  • The Pixie Scouts are an allusion to the Girl Scouts and similar such organizations for girls.
    • When Mr. Barkin and the Pixie Scouts were performing squirrel calls, they then expected Ron to do one as well. The question is why would he want to. As mentioned in Sink or Swim and Return to Wannaweep, he has a fear of squirrels. He was probably relieved when the squirrel got off his head.
  • When Ron and Mr. Barkin were bonded together, and Ron was doing his math test. We do not know the name of the teacher, but when Ron and Mr. Barkin exited the classroom, you do see another teacher in the teacher's seat. This does show that someone besides Mr. Barkin teaches classes. Naked Genius and Stop Team Go are two other episodes.
  • Ron wore his mission outfit pants with his civilian outfit instead of his usual light brown pants.
  • This is the second episode and mission where Bonnie and Kim work together.

Errors

  • When Wade calls Kim on the Kimmunicator after Ron and Barkin get stuck together, Ron temporarily moves to the other side of Barkin, which should be impossible based on the nature of the adhesive substance.
  • When Kim and Bonnie are in Kim's room, you can see a door and Kim's dad passing by it. However, it has seen in every other episode that the way to enter into Kim's room is by going up a flight of stairs.
    • That door is always there, just usually closed.  Kim's mom passes by in "Steal Wheels" carrying laundry, so there is a hallway there, probably leading to a deck with clothes lines as the laundry room is off the kitchen as seen in "Trading Faces".
  • After Mr. Barkin tells his scout about the invading troops, he turns the lights on and the projector off, but the image remains on the projector board.
  • When Kim and Bonnie got captured by Dementor, Kim had her snowsuit on, but when she was tied up in his lair, Kim was wearing her mission clothes instead of her snowsuit.
    • It is likely that Kim was wearing her mission clothes under the snowsuit. And since Dementor did take the Kimmunicator from her, it's not a stretch to imagine he might have taken the snowsuit off of Kim while searching her for gadgets. Possibly Bonnie wasn't searched, either because she was clearly a civilian, or because she might have threatened to become even more annoying over the idea of having strange men pawing at her.
  • When Kim and Bonnie are climbing the rock-face, Bonnie asks why Kim did not just use a jet-pack. Kim replied that the jet-pack can only carry one person, however Kim has carried Ron with said jet-pack in previous episodes.
    • But Kim and Ron were not bonded together side-by-side, so that may make it more difficult.
  • Kim and Bonnie changed clothes but they were affected from the backside.
    • Likewise, Ron and Mr. Barkin were also able to change clothes and remove their shirts during rugby, swimming and when staying overnight at Ron's house.
  • When Kim and Bonnie are stuck to Dementor's machine they get "frizzies" but when they get off it, their hair is back to normal.
  • When Ron found out about the adventure badges, and Mr. Barkin told him, that he will not be getting one this time, because unlike the Pixies, this is his first adventure. Mr. Barkin knows that Ron has been traveling with Kim Possible, all over the world, acting as her sidekick, for a number of years, possibly since he was 12 years old, as can be established in A Sitch in Time. Ron should definitely be able to get an adventure badge. He has probably been on more adventures than these scouts combined.
    • But he was NOT affiliated with the scouts, before or then, so none of that counted. Scout organizations have to verify and oversee the earning of badges of their members. Being stuck to Barkin does not a member make.
