I second that AshleyBenlove this episode should be shown a lot!! Still can't believe some vote meehhh...this was a great episode! It should be a landslide for BOOYAH!! Of course it difference in opinion I guess...so whatever it is i still say this is so far the best eps.
Anybody notice that when Wade brought over the poster about Juniors concert that one sec Ron's in his civvies and next he's in his mission clothes? Also where the heck was Ron when Kim and Wade got into the car?

Wow, I just saw this episode and I don't know where to start. Wade showed a little bit of his evil side with his new contraption. What I like is a romantic comedy and this episode was exactly that. From Monique to all the girls crushing on SSJ and everything in-between, one of the funniest episodes of the SERIES, not only the season up to this point.

Honestly, this episode was my favorite of the bunch! (though the funniest moment of Saturday night was definitely the attempt to park!)
I thought it a cute, creative idea. I like how it did not use Ron and Kim for the Valentine mood (though I feel they got their romance in there). I was laughing the entire episode, and I truly felt everyone was in character. It gave Monique and Wade a lot more than they usually get, and the chemistry of all the characters was hilarious.
It's also realistic for kids around Wade's age to think that way. I don't care if he's a genius--he's a twelve-year old with twelve-year old hormones and "bright" ideas. I have brothers that age, I have worked with far too many kids that age, and so I found the entire concept entirely too believable-- that's what made it work for me. You see, I have had little boys follow me around in a state of love. I was actually proposed to a few summers ago by a 12-year old scout (I was 20 or 21 or something like that at the time). I truly related to this show.
5 out of 5.
As for some of the complaints of seen... I think that some people in fandom try to take this show to too much of a real-world status. I find it absolutely hilarious that all these super-villains just happen to know where these kids live, and yet don't take advantage of it (though with the Senors being themselves, I don't think they would intend any harm on anyone). As we saw from StD, Drakken also knows where Kim lives. I just love the idea of all this villainy that is incapable of yanking people from their own homes.
As for what Wade did as being too extreme... what on the show isn't? As I said before, I understood the situation perfectly, and if they wanted to over-exagerate it, fine by me.

Another hilarious ep, loved Wade's re-appearance in person, and his line: "I look like Lincoln!" Other great bits were SSS's "poem," and SSJ's "singing." Oh, and Ron and Wade in drag, freakin' hilarious! ;D

Only one continuity I spotted, and that's when Wade, Kim and Ron were discussing the Junior sitch in Kim's garage. It cuts to Ron in his regular clothes, then it cuts back to wade and quickly back to Ron, only when we Go back to Ron he's magically changed into mission clothes. Huh? He must change really fast.
I was about to post something like this a moment ago. Glad I checked out the thread to see if it was posted before hand.
I wouldn't be surprised to see this scene added to our little "Mistake screecap thread" in the near future. It really did make you do a double -take. I got a good laugh out of it, but like you said, it didn't detract my love for this episode.

They certainly went a long way around to establish their ages (well, technically, just Wade and Monique)
College grad, but won't be able to drive for four years - that means he's 12. Monique is 5 years older, therefore 17 at that point. I think they pretty much inferred Kim and Ron are the same in that conversation, and I'm willing to bet they'll keep them 'minors' throughout the series, unless they do a birthday ep. (I don't think they will, if you consider the example of the Olson twins turning 18)
