Room with a Moose is one of my favorite episodes. Zim
finally becomes murderously agitated with the Skoolchildren and decides to get rid of them all…permanently. He rigs up a starship to look like a bus and blasts them into a wormhole in space (they thought they were going on an impromptu fieldtrip). Zim
takes the time to tell Dib
about his evil plan - to send the children to a dimension filled with a room which has a moose in it. To avoid his moosey fate Dib
(who of course had his laptop and was able to use it to plot out the path of the bus through multiple wormholes) has to convince all the other children to sit on one side of the bus.
This episode also marks a bit of a turning point in the Dib-Zim
relationship - Zim
begins to respect Dib
as an opponent. We see that Zim
states that Dib
is the only one who would appreciate the amazingness of his plan and that with Dib
gone his mission wouldn't be as interesting. One of the unproduced episodes had Zim
getting bored with the mission after Dib
dedicates himself to "real science" so it appears that this trend was to continue.
Ever think that Dib's
laptop is the Mac that brought the aliens down in Independence Day?
My Favorite Moments:
The revealing of the Moosey Fate and the shot of the moose eating the nuts are definitely highlights of this one.
