Getting Really Old Will Upset Plans
Summary: The episode starts with Numbuhs 2,3,4,and 5 being attacked by the notorious Delightful Children From Down The Lane. But once again, they are defeated when Numbuh 1 shows up and defeats them. Father - appearing for the first time - is disappointed with the DCFDTL, but gives his children once more chance, giving the kids "The Really Really Incredibly Destructive Machine" at their request. They return to the Treehouse, and after a long, destructive battle, transform Numbuh 1 into an adult (using the Age Cigar from Operation: C.A.B.L.E.-T.V.). Numbuh 1 must therefore leave the KND, because he is too old to be in it, and leaves to find a job. The story skips ahead two weeks later. The DCFDTL have destroyed their treehouse, so Sector V uses a cardboard box as a temporary clubhouse. Finally, Numbuh 4 convinces the others to go get ice cream, but Numbuh 1, the ice cream truck driver, refuses to give any of the kids ice cream, much to their disappointment.
The team goes to visit the Delightfuls, and manage to steal the device - but the Delightfuls refuse to give it up, and they struggle over the ray, turning into teens, babies, and even seniors. The battle ends with Numbuh 1 coming in, simply asking for the Age Cigar. The Delightfuls are incredulous until he points out that he is now an adult, and therefore, they must obey him.
The Delightfuls reluctantly hand over the remote just as Father comes in, congratulating Nigel on "tricking a bunch of kids." Father than unleashes his demonic fire powers on Nigel. Mr. Uno and the Sector V agents fight back, finally overcoming him with a barrage of Nigel's ice cream. Nigel is turned back to normal, and the team leaves. Due to the attack from The Really Really Incredibly Destructive Machine, however, the Treehouse is in ruins. Numbuh 1, however, is not worried, as he states, "It's going to be a long time before [they] grow up."
The end credits show their Treehouse being rebuilt.
