  • Episode Description
  • Danny and Sam get into a fight, and when Sam utters the words, "I sometimes wish I'd never met you," she finds herself in a world in which she and Danny are strangers, courtesy of an escaped, vindictive, and more powerful Desiree. Worse than that, since it was Sam who encouraged Danny to check out the Fenton Portal the night he got his ghost powers, Danny doesn't have any powers! Now, Sam must convince Danny that they share a friendship and a history, and lead him back to the Fenton Portal for a second "accident" so he can again become Danny Phantom, but with a permanent change to his suit.moreless

    • Sam: Uh, excuse me? I saved your butt, and you're giving me grief? Danny: Welcome to my world, remember? "We should make the menu recyclo-vegetarian." "We should let the gorilla out." "We should sell all of your dad's stuff at a garage sale."

    • Danny: Yeah, you broke into my locker, and doctored an old photo me. You must really like me... or your nuts. You're not nuts are you?

    • (After beating the giant cow Desiree had brought to life, Danny and Tucker are still covered in milk. Sam, however, is untouched.) Tucker: Good job beating that big cow, Danny! Danny: Yeah, well it hasn't stopped Sam about busting my chops about cruelty to unliving plasic animals. Sam: I had to choose between fake cows and evil trucks. The cow won.

    • (As Danny is about to be crused by Desiree) Sam: (To herself) Oh, this is all my fault. I wish I had never fought with Danny... (Pauses, then smiles) And she's granting every single wish she hears! (To Desiree) I wish Danny and I had never had that fight! And I wish Danny, Tucker, and I remembered everything and his costume stayed the way it is because I really, really like it! Desiree: So you have wished it and so it shall be! (Blasts Danny and his memories return)

    • Danny: (To Tucker, while watching Sam battle Nightmerica) That might just be the coolest girl on the planet. Tucker: Or she's nuts. Really, really nuts.

    Notes (76)

    • Femalien was the only one of the Trinity that Danny defeated. Also, she was the last ghost Danny defeated in his original look.

    • Apparently, Danny was originally scared of ghosts, but after getting his powers, he began to become more confident and brave.

    • Look Hard: At the end of the episode, when Danny, Sam and Tucker are watching everyone dance at Paulina's party, Tucker doesn't have a backpack on. When the next shot is shown of them viewed from the front, Tucker does have a backpack on.

    • Danny must be younger than Paulina because she turned 15 this episode and Danny hasn't had a birthday yet.

    • Cable Episode Info: After an arguement, Sam wishes she had never met Danny.

    Trivia (17)

    • On the Trinity Of Doom movie poster, Nightmarica was shown wearing a clawed glove only on her left hand. But when she attacked Elmer's, she had clawed gloves on both hands.

    • When Sam enters Elmer's in her colorful clothing, Danny pushes Tucker off of his chair and Tucker's ice cream lands on the table. Then when Sam puts her diary on the table, the ice cream is gone.

    • In the beginning when Tucker and Danny are admiring the Gi-normo 6000's, the one they are looking at has a sign that says "Big" on it. The next few times we see the sign, it says "Huge", not "Big".

    • In the scene after Danny regains his ghost powers, it shows Danny and Sam sitting in class at school. When Danny leans over on her chair, it shows his desk being right next to hers. However when he falls on the floor, it shows there being a lot of space between his and Sam's desk, so he couldn't possibly have leaned on Sam's chair to talk to her.

    • When Sam hands Danny his suit before he enters the ghost portal, he has his normal clothes on. Then the next scene shows Sam and Tucker, and the scene afterward, he's zipping the suit on. You can see his bare chest while he is, so, that would mean he took off his clothes in those few seconds the scene switched to Sam and Tucker, and right in front of them too.
