Ron learns that his family is moving to Norway, separating him from Kim and breaking up Team Possible. They try to carry on by getting separate rides to the mission site, but it doesn't really work out — Ron arrives late the first couple times they try, and without him Kim is far less effective (even with Monique recruited as a substitute partner).
Meanwhile, Drakken, Killigan, and Monkey Fist team up to retrieve the parts of the "Tempus Simia", a monkey idol that, when assembled at the right time and place, is capable of generating time-travel portals.
This episode provides examples of:
- Breaking the Fellowship: Team Possible is split up.
- The Cavalry Arrives Late: In Team Possible's first mission split up, Ron arrives at the museum long after the baddies have made their escape. However, this actually allows him to rescue Kim who was trapped in a sarcophagus.
- Dismantled MacGuffin: the Tempus Simia.
- Everyone Loves Blondes: Inverted. While he in Norway, Ron say that is really tired of the blonde girls.
- San Dimas Time: Killigan complains about this being in effect when Monkey Fist is using the Tempus Simia to time travel.Killigan: He has the power of time travel, and he's late!
- Sdrawkcab Name: Team Possible is split up when Mrs. Stoppable is reassigned to Norway by "Ms. Ogehs".
- Surrounded by Idiots: Shego's reaction to a triple dose of supervillain stupidity.
- Team Rocket Wins: Despite Kim's attempts, the villains succeed in retrieving the Tempus Simia.
- Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: The three villains squabble incessantly, even (or perhaps especially) when they should be focusing on their objective. Shego is the only one who stays focused:Monkey Fist: Patience. When the idol is near its head, the Tempus Simia will clap.
Drakken: There's no such thing as mystical monkey power.
Monkey Fist: You wouldn't know mystical monkey power if you held it in your tiny little hands.
Killigan: Aye, they are wee small digits.
(Tempus Simia starts clapping its cymbals together)
Shego: Uh, guys....
Drakken: I'll let my wee fingers do the talking, Mr. Skirty Pants!
Monkey Fist: Can you two buffoons take this outside?
Killigan: At thirty thousand feet?
Monkey Fist: Precisely.
All Three: What?
Shego: The monkey clapped.
- Temporary Substitute: Monique acts as a substitute for Ron while he is in Norway.
- Villain Team-Up: Drakken, Killigan, and Monkey Fist join forces to retrieve the "Tempus Simia". Shego comes along with Drakken, but is treated as hired muscle rather than a full member of the team (not that she really cares what they think — if anything, she is even more contemptuous of the other two than she is of Drakken).
- Welcome to My World: Kim says this to Monique during a battle after Monique is shocked when one of Duff Killigan's golfballs explodes.
