Official summary
It’s time for the annual physical at Kadic school! X.A.N.A. possesses the school nurse, Yollanda, and she captures Aelita. Her goal is to get Aelita to Lyoko and hand her over to the Scyphozoa. For Jeremy, there is only one possible solution -- they must prevent the school nurse from reaching the scanner room! He decides to put a project he’s been working on for some time into action… he activates a tower for his own use, then pixelizes Odd, giving him the same powers as someone possessed by X.A.N.A.. Odd can now fight Yollanda on equal terms! Unfortunately, X.A.N.A. has some ideas of its own to fight back against Jeremy…

Detailed summary
It’s medical check-up day at Kadic and Odd is trying not to appear skinny in the eyes of Yolanda, the nurse. Jeremy is worried about Aelita who has no health record, nor vaccinations…
Odd leaves disappointed with his results and sits with Ulrich who’s awaiting his turn while Aelita and Sissi have theirs. Sissi is shocked by her weight which has exceeded her expectations. While Aelita explains that it’s not worth making a scandal about, XANA attacks and takes control of Yolanda, who kidnaps Aelita, leaving Sissi frightened.
Jeremy, Yumi and Odd rush to the factory through the sewers to head Yolanda off while Ulrich pursues the kidnapper and tries to keep her in the main room of the factory.
Jeremy blocks the lift from the terminal and executes his new program: by activating a tower, he can give someone similar powers to XANA’s spectres by pixellising them: it’s “Jeremification” according to Odd! Jeremy takes control of a tower for the first time and its halo turns green, and he then applies the program to Odd who runs to save Ulrich and Aelita from Yolanda’s grip.

The fight is hard for poor Odd because even at the peak of his power, he’s facing a very powerful Yolanda who’s throwing powerful energy balls, which he can only dodge. The situation becomes complicated when XANA takes control of the tower Jeremy activated, and begins to drain Odd’s vital energy.

The others need to act quickly before the boy dies of exhaustion, which is why Aelita and Yumi go to the Mountain Sector, leaving Ulrich to clean up in the Forest Sector in front of the activated tower.
Struggling in the fog XANA has covered the Mountains in and guided by Jeremy, Aelita and Yumi manage to deactivate the tower Jeremy (then XANA) had control of, almost losing Yumi to the Digital Sea in the process. The girls then return to the Forest Sector where Ulrich, split into three, has just finished off XANA’s monsters.
Aelita deactivates the tower at the moment when Yolanda is about to deal the final blow to Odd and Jeremy…

The kids bring the nurse back to Kadic and belie Sissi’s claims of a “hypothetical kidnapping of Aelita by Yolanda”…

About the series

- French title: Au meilleur de sa forme

- This episode was originally number 48.
- Usually XANAfied people and spectres throw purple lightning, but in this episode only XANA-Yolanda throws yellow balls of energy and is surrounded by a yellow aura.
- Aelita (to Yumi): "XANA has already pulled this one on us!”
Aelita makes an allusion to episode 40 “Attack of the Zombies” in which XANA made the tower invisible to try and stop Aelita from deactivating it.

About references

- Ulrich makes an allusion to “Rambo”. This is the character from the film and book in which the hero is John Rambo, a retired and very skilled soldier.


Julien: I’m nearsighted, but I don’t want to have to wear glasses, that’d be too lame!
Ulrich: Oh you’re right, being blind as a bat sure is a lot more cool!

Ulrich: Holding up the wall huh, Odd?
Odd: No, push ups! Why, can’t you tell?
Ulrich: No!

Ulrich: But you are scrawny!
Odd: I am not scrawny, I’m svelte!

Sissi: Look at my weight curve, just right! And my growth curve? Just right! Perfection is really wonderful, isn’t it?

Yolanda (to Odd): Are you sure you’re eating enough?
Jeremy: By enough do you mean more than an elephant?

Odd: Not to worry, Einstein! She thought you were human, didn’t she?

Jeremy: An activated tower!
Ulrich: In the middle of a medical check-up? XANA has no respect for anything!

Jim: Hey, quit dawdling! This is a 100-metre sprint, not a chorus line!

Sissi (seeing her weight): What?! Oh, your scale must be broken! That’s five pounds over!
Yolanda: This scale is perfectly accurate, Elisabeth!
Sissi: It’s Sissi! This is outrageous! I’m gonna tell my father!
Yolanda: I’d run over to his office if I were you, it might help you lose a few pounds!

Sissi: My ultra-perfect weight curve has just been wrecked by these five extra pounds!

Yumi: Couldn’t that be a bit risky?
Jeremy: I could say no, but I’d be lying!

Ulrich: How much time d’you need?
Jeremy: Ideally, about three months! But I’ll see what I can do to speed things up!

Odd: So how do you plan on pixellising us, Frankenstein?

Odd: If this ends badly, Jeremy, you promise to look after Kiwi?
Jeremy: If this ends badly, there’ll be nobody left to look after Kiwi!

Odd (to Yolanda): So miss nurse, do you think I look scrawny now?
(XANA-Yolanda throws super Odd off with a shield)
Odd: This way, nasty nurse! Catch me if you can!

Ulrich: Am I dreaming or has Odd turned into a superhero?
Yumi: Jeremy’s managed to Jeremify him!

Ulrich: Any news from Odd and his private nurse? Last time I checked, the atmosphere was electric!

Odd: Jeremy, I’m losing power, is that supposed to happen?
Jeremy: Uh…
Odd: That’s what I thought! You’re using your “I hate to say it, but you bummed the exam” voice!

Jeremy: Aelita and Yumi are on their way to you!
Ulrich (tripled): Good, the three of us could use a few ladies around here!

Ulrich: The girls are coming, we’d better clean up!

Odd: It was pretty rude of you to leave me there in the middle of our conversation, nurse Yolanda!
Jeremy: Oh, Odd! Am I glad to see you!
Odd: Yeah, I’m glad to see me too!
(XANA-Yolanda knocks him off balance with a yellow energy ball)

Odd: I really think XANA needs to work on his bedside manner, don’t you?

Sissi: Yolanda turned into this weird, super scary demon and jumped out of the window, that’s what happened!
Jim: Reminds me of when I worked in a psychiatric hospital!
Principal: You worked in a psychiatric hospital?
Jim: I’d rather not talk about it.

Aelita: Ms Perraudin wasn’t feeling very well, so she went out for some air!
Principal: Out the window?
Aelita: Uh, yes, of course! Why not?

Odd: You know, anybody that lies that well could only be human, right Jeremy?
