Kim: So, did we learn anything?
Ron: By we, you mean...
Kim: You, did you learn anything?
Ron: Well, some of the stuff on that wheel is kind of tasty!
Ron: Eating a balanced diet will keep you from turning into a mutated maniac?
Kim: Yeah, something like that!
(Ron turns back to normal)
Kim: Ron, are you alright?
(His pants fall off)
Ron: Owww, Ron loose pants!
Tweebs: It's every freshmen's dream, to feed vegetables to a senior, a mutated senior!
Kim: (Sweetly) Just don't hurt him, okay!
Bonnie: That's quite an appetite your BF has Kim. Maybe someone should explain to him when jocks bulk up, it means muscle.
(Ron sees Bonnie's tray of mystery meat)
Ron: You gonna eat that?
Kim: Ron, you have to stop this. What you’re doing. It’s not healthy. For you or for us.
Wade:We have something BIG.
Kim:we got something big here too.
Ron: ANOTHER line crossed! MAN!
When Ron shrunk back to normal,his red jersey was gone. They didn't show it fall off or anyhting.
The title of the Episode (Grande Size Me) is a play on a Morgan Spurlock movie by the name of "Supersize Me!: A film of Epic Proportions", which takes a look into who's to blame on the order of why 37% of Americans are obese or overweight. But this is the first cultural reference for a Movie that was nominated for an Academy award for Best Documentary Film. Additionally during the making of the film McDonald's at the time was putting Kim Possible toys into their Happy Meals. Kind of Ironic that KP and this Movie would be linked.
This Episode is yet another in a long Line of 'Public Service Announcement' Episodes that Disney has run in its history. Other shows that Disney have had PSA's including * Darkwing Duck: Dead Duck* which dealt with helmets and seatbelts,Gargoyles: Deadly Force which dealt with gun safety, and Buzz Lightyear of Star Command: Super Nova which dealt with a Parental guide on how to talk to kids about drug and substance abuse. Additionally, Disney isn't the only company to put PSA's into their Shows. G.I.Joe by Sunbow/Hasbro put a little 60 second PSA in their Episodes, as did He-Man and the Masters of the Universe and She-Ra:Princess of Power.. So this episode joins a long line of Shows that dealt with Public Service Announcements.
