  • Episode Description
  • Danny meets his evil opposite in Vlad Plasmius, a childhood friend of his ghost hunting dad, Jack. Unfortunately, Vlad acquired ghostly powers twenty years ago, which means he's stronger and more experienced than Danny -- and bent on taking everything away from Jack Fenton as revenge for ruining him -- including his life.

  • Quotes (27)

    • Danny: (after arriving late at home) Oh, poop. (The vulture drops the feces on Danny's head)

    • Danny: Finally! One day where I get home on time without any ghost detours making me miss my ten o' clock curfew! (Ghost sense goes off and he spots the ghost vultures) Or not! Going ghost!

    • Jack: (Being overshadowed by Plasmius) If you live to tell the tale, remember that big, fat Jack Fenton did this to you! Danny: Guess again, Cheese-head. (Pushes Plasmius out of Jack) Jack: (After returning to normal) Nobody uses Jack Fenton as a human meat puppet!

    • Danny: (Grabs ghost vulture's legs) You know that old saying about about "a bird in the hand?" Well, neither do I! (Spins around and throws it at the other two vultures) And don't go messing up any windshields on your way outta town! (Paper with Jack's face flies down; Danny catches it) I wonder why those guys were trying to waste Dad. (Clock chimes, signaling 10:00) Oh no, Dad.

    • Danny: (About Vlad) Is he hitting on Mom? Jazz: As long as he has working toilets, and Mom says no, who cares?

    Notes (73)

    • Danny being shown that he can control Jack with no problem while Jack resisted Vlad could be a sign that Danny's ghostly potential is greater than Vlad's or it's possible that Danny didn't have trouble because he had Jack do something that he subconsciously wasn't against (i.e saving Maddie).

    • This is the first Danny Phantom episode in which Sam and Tucker play absolutely no part.

    • Look Hard: When the Fenton Ghost RV is pulling up into Vlad's driveway, you can see the "Welcome to Wisconsin" sign in the far bottom left corner from the upcoming episode, "The Million Dollar Ghost."

    • Apparently, when Vlad was hit with ectoplasmic goo, he fell to the ground. It could be a coincidence, or it's possible that ectoplasmic goo cancels out a ghost's powers, but only temporarily.

    • This is the first time since "Attack of the Killer Garage Sale" that Danny couldn't control his powers. When his parents were yelling at him for being late, his arm went intangible.

    Trivia (18)

    • Why didn't Danny figure out the truth about Vlad being a ghost hybrid too before he revealed himself to him? Shouldn't he have realized that Vlad's accident was similar to his own when Jack told him about it?

    • If Jack could resist Vlad's hold on him, then why couldn't he resist Danny in "Parental Bonding"? Vlad has 20 years of experience, so shouldn't it be the other way around?

    • If Skulker's ectoskeleton was destroyed in "One of a Kind", then why is the PDA attached to his new armor? Did he repair his old one?

    • After the Dairy King sets Danny free the room turns blue again. But a couple shots that show the Dairy King show it's still neon pink.

    • When Jack drives the RV into Vlad's private studies, Danny flies out of the way. But when it shows him again, he's lying on the ground.

    • Skulker's Glowing Blade: Appearance Skulker's new weapon somewhat resembles the blade weapons on the wrist of the monster from the Predator movies.

    • Vlad: Appearance & Story Vlad Tempes, the man that started the Dracula myth was given the name Vlad the Impaler: a Transylvanian war lord that drank the blood of his victims. He even dipped bread in blood, saying that it was healthy, but he was eventually captured and imprisoned in a tower where he ate rats and drank their blood. Then he was killed. Dracula has fangs, weird eyes, and pointed ears, as does Vlad Plasmius in his ghost mode. And Vlad also lives in a castle, like Vlad the Impaler, and Dracula. In conclusion, Vlad's name and residence likely relates to Vlad the Impaler.

    • Maddie: Jack, I’ve never seen you like this. You beat that ghost all the way to Kenosha! Kenosha is a city located in Kenosha County, Wisconsin. It is the fourth largest city in Wisconsin, next to Milwaukee, Madison, and Green Bay (which were all also acknowledged in this episode). More Info

    • Vlad: (To Danny) Sleep tight, little badger. Vlad seems to be making a reference to the Wisconsin Badgers, which is the name of the sports team in the University of Wisconsin, which coincidentally is the same college that Vlad, Maddie, and Jack attended. More Info

    • Fenton RV: Appearance & Functionality The Fenton RV seems to be a parody of the “Ectomobile” in the movie, Ghostbusters. Like the RV, the Ectomobile contained a lot of ghost-hunting weapons and gadgets.

      In my opinion, Vlad Masters/Vlad Plasmius is the combination of: Lex Luthor, The Green Goblin, The Joker, Doctor Doom and Ra's Al Ghul.

      *also forgot Venom and Deathstroke.
