Jack Fenton (Dad)
Danielle Fenton / Dani Phantom
In "Maternal Instincts," when Vlad wears the Specter Deflector, it shocks and hurts him because he is a ghost. In this episode though, when they put it on him, it only prevents him from transforming.
Why does the Booomerang fly after Vlad if it is locked in on Danny?
In "Ultimate Enemy" when Danny used the Ghostly wail on Dark Danny, he defeated him with ease. But when he used it on Vlad (who's clearly nowhere near as powerful as Dark Danny), he was able to recover and get up as if nothing happened.
Look Hard: When Vlad's last clone revealed it's form, it looked like a green vapor version of Danny and one of it's eyes fell out and dissolved. Just before the clone melted, it looked exactly like Danny and it still had two eyes.
If Vlad didn't have Danny's mid-morph gene, how was he able to give Dani the ability to transform from human to ghost?
When Danny was searching for Danielle, he said she was twelve. She never told him her age, so how did he know this?
Possible Explanation: Either Danielle told him between scenes, or Danny guessed.
Since Dani is Danny's clone, she is actually his sister, not his cousin, because she has his DNA which is a combination of Jack & Maddie's DNA.
Technically, Vlad should have gotten Danny's mid-morph DNA because Danny was mid-morph the whole time he was in the holding chamber being shocked.
After Danny feeds Danielle, she leaves a rather huge mess all over his bed. After he pulls her away to speak with his parents, she runs back into the room. Right when the bed reappears, the mess has magically disappeared.
When Danielle first appears on Danny's bed, she has a suitcase next to her, despite this, what's inside it is never stated and the suitcase is never seen or mentioned later.
In the cafeteria, right before Dani pops in and spills food all over Sam and Tucker, to the bottom right of the screen is the food, already spilled.
When Danny uses the ghostly wail, when the Maddie program tells Vlad everything is shuting down, the ghostly wail is gone, then in the next scene it's back.
Lancer calls the Fentons to report on all three kids. Don't Tucker and Sam have their own parents Lancer could call?
After Danielle is introduced, the outline on Danny and Danielle's hair in Ghost Mode switches from black to gray throughout the episode.
The first time Danny is in the containment chamber, the computerized Maddie turns a pressure knob to 6 but when you see it again, its on 7.
When Sam and Tucker run up to Danny that look like they had been hurt, but they were nowhere near the fight with the bedsheet ghost.
When Danny was in the containment chamber for the second time, there's a close up on his face. During the close up, Danny has a ghostly glow even though he's in human mode.
When Danielle transforms for the first time, the collar of her suit is plain black. However, when Danny says "And I have a lot of questions", the collar of her suit it white.
In an earlier episode, "Beauty Marked" Danny and Tucker drove the Specter Speeder into the ghost zone and it broke down there. At the end of the episode, Danny just flew Sam and Tucker back, and there was no sign of him bringing the Specter Speeder back through the portal. In this episode, however, the Specter Speeder was back in the Fenton's lab, and it didn't look damaged at all.
When the Booo-merang falls in front of Danny and Danielle in Vlad's lab, Danielle is missing her lipstick.
Why was Lancer angry at Sam and Tucker for not being in the cafeteria, when they were throwing out the trash? They had to throw out the mess.
The shades of black and gray On Dani's uniform alternately switch sides.
Danny: (After Danielle spills food over Sam and Tucker) Look, you can't just come in here and use your powers like that!
Danielle: Oh come on, it was funny! Maybe it'd be funnier if I messed up... (Looks to Dash) that guy.
Dash: (Wiping some of the food off Tucker's hat and tastes it) Bummer, today's apple juice day.
Danny: Wow. (Smiles, finally starting to get along with her) You like NASA and you already hate Dash, maybe we are related. (Smile drops) How about you tell me how you got those powers in the first place? (Both of their ghost senses go off, alerting them to another attack)
Danny: (To Danielle) Can I help you?
Danny: (To Sam through phone) NO, NOT YOU!
Danielle: Not so loud. I'm Danielle. Your third cousin once removed? I ran away from home. Hey, you got any food?
Danny: Uhm... I gotta go...
Sam: Of COURSE you do!
(After Danielle eats a lot of food and belches loudly)
Danielle: You wanna be an astronaut? Did you know they only choose 100 people-
Danny and Danielle:(In unison) Every 2 years to go in the space program...
Danny: Yeah, I knew that. How did you?
(Danielle sees a Dumpty Humpty CD next to her)
Danielle: Dumpty Humpty! Those guys rock!
Danny: Yeah, I knew that too! Have you had enough to eat?
Danielle: Mmm hmm.
Danny: Then it's time to talk to my parents!
(Grabs Danielle's left arm and attempts to take her to his parents)
Danny: Look, you say your my cousin, and maybe you are, but we still have to call your parents!
Danielle: I SAID NO!
(Danielle runs back into Danny's room)
Danny: Hey come back!
(Danny sees that Danielle has disappeared)
Danny: (About Danielle)Man she's fast!
Danny: (Trying to fight off Vlad's ghost ray) Help me! Do something!
Danielle: Oh, I am...
(She blasts Danny in the back; he falls to the ground, and turns back into human form)
Danny: (Lifting his head) I don't understand...
Danielle: (Flies next to Vlad) Did I do good, Daddy?
Vlad: You did excellent, child. I could not wish for a better daughter.
(Danny passes out; Vlad laughs maniacally)
(Tucker & Sam are getting in the Spector Speeder when Jack & Maddie storm in)
Jack: (To Sam and Tucker) Sam, Tucker, get out of that thing!
Sam: (To Jack) What? I can't hear you over the roar of the rockets! (To Tucker; whispering) Could you activate the roar of the rockets, please?!
(Tucker pulls ignition and Spector Speeder flies out of tunnel)
Jack: You kids are in a world of trouble!
(Danny gets out of the cloning pod and flies through Vlad)
Vlad: I will...(Suddenly sees Danielle behind him) Danielle! (Nervously) How long have you been floating there?
Danielle: (With tears in her eyes) Am I an imperfection? A mistake?
Vlad: What? Oh, dearest, I wasn't talking about you. I was talking about the other clones. (Points at the clone of Danny melting on the ground)
Vlad: I know. It's horrible, isn't it? That's why i need Daniel's DNA. To stabilize you, my greatest creation.
Vlad: Uh huh. (Looks down; smiles) But here's what I need you to do.
(In the cafeteria, Danny explains to Sam & Tucker what happened yesterday)
Danny: So, I hid her in the guest bedroom in the op-center and she was gone before I left for school! (Noticies Sam & Tucker are not interested in his story) Are you guys okay?
Tucker: (Angrily) Dude, we rebuilt a miniature golf course from scratch yesterday. How do you think we are?
Danny: Guys, I'm sorry.
(Sam & Tucker cross their arms and look away from Danny)
Tucker: Broken record...
Danny: I am! I'm sorry! But I was dealing with a super powered cousin I didn't know I had!
(Dani Phantom suddenly pops up in the middle of the table and spills food over Sam & Tucker, while she innocently waves to Danny)
Sam: (Angry) And this must be her.
(After Danielle dissapears, Danny transforms and tries to find her)
Danny: Okay, she's a 12 year old girl. How far could she possibly-? (Ghost sense goes off; laughs sarcastically) Oh, swell. After the bed sheet ghost, what's this gonna be? A spooky bat on a string?
(A roar is heard from above him and Danny gets punched into the ground by the hulk-like clone)
Danny: (To the Hulk-like clone) Man, you like I do on a bad day! But I'm gonna make you look worse!
(As Danny as about to be hit by the hulk-like clone, Danielle pops in out of nowhere)
Danielle: (To clone) Hey! Leave him alone!
Danny: (To Dannielle) Get out of here! (Tries to release himself from the clone's grip, but fails)
Danielle: (To Danny) Forget it. I know who you are and I came a long way to find you. (Crosses her arms) And I'm not leaving now!
(Transforms into Dani Phantom)
Danny: I've said it before and I'll say it again: you really are one seriously crazed-up frootloop.
Vlad: A frootloop would not have been able to make his first million with a series of invisible burglaries! A frootloop would not have been able to overshadow enough millionaires to become the richest man on the planet! I-AM-NOT-A-FROOTLOOP! And I am not a villan. All I ever wanted... was love.
Vlad: (Getting up after Danny and Dani knock him down; sees prime Danny clone has been knocked out of his containment chamber and is turning into ectoplasm) Huh?
Maddie Computer Program: Prime clone destabilized, lamb chop. (Clone reaches out with a groan) Degeneration happening, sweetness.
(Clone turns into nothing but ectoplasm)
Vlad: No, No, NOOOOOO!!!
(After clones leave after calling Vlad father)
Vlad: "Father". (Short evil chuckle) I do so love that. Now say it again the way I programed you to.
Maddie Computer Progam: Jack Fenton is an idiot, I am glad I serve you. Jack Fenton is an idiot, I am glad I serve you.
Vlad: (Evil laugh)
Vlad: (Wearing the Specter Deflector) I... can't focus my powers.
Danielle: Which means I don't need mine... to do this. So... "Dad"... (Punches him hard in the face and knocks him out) Stay away from my cousin.
Tucker: (As he and Sam are getting into the Specter Speeder) Man. Lancer seemed mad.
Sam: Maybe you shouldn't have called him old man?
Danny: (after Danielle has appeared in his room, to Sam over the phone) Uh... I gotta go.
Sam: Of course you do!
Danielle: (To Danny) I'm Danielle. Your third cousin once removed. I ran away from home. Hey, you got any food?
Danny: (To Vlad, sarcastically; after he reveals his plan to clone him) Oh, yeah, nothing loopy about that.
Danny: Aren't you at least going to make some stupid crack about my father? Or a lame come-on about my mom?
Vlad: No, dear boy. Funny, joke-around Vlad isn't here today! (Sends a ghost ray at Danny)
Danny: (Hugs Sam & Tucker after knocking Vlad down) Thank you! Thank you, thank you, thank you, you guys! I'll never take you for granted again! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!
Vlad's Maddie Hologram: (As Vlad's trying to force Danny to transform) Containment Chamber beginning to overload. (Machine and controls explode in a storm of electricity) Oopsie. Has overloaded.
Danny: (to Vlad) I've said it before, and I'll say it again. You really are one seriously crazed up fruit loop.
Danny: (To Danielle) Can I help you?
Danny: NO, NOT YOU!
Sam: (To Mr. Lancer) Why aren't we cleaning up the cafeteria? Uh, because we're meeting Danny and totally ditching school.
Tucker: And there's nothing you can do about it, old man.
Mr. Lancer: OLD MAN?! (Starts to chase Sam and Tucker)YOU KIDS ARE IN A WORLD OF TROUBLE!(Hurts his hip)Oww, my hip...
Sam: (referring to the Boo-Merang) Tucker, follow that stupidly named tracking device!
Tucker: What kind of ghost haunts a miniature golf course?
Sam: Well there is a box ghost, obviously all the good haunts are taken.
Tucker: (After Danny overshadows his golf ball so he gets five strokes) Danny, knock it off.
Sam: Yeah, you were suppose to be here an hour ago. (To Tucker) By the way, that still counts.
Danny: Sorry I'm late, but you'll be happy to know that the ghost king won't...(He looks at Sam and Tucker, who look annoyed) Ok, I overslept.
Vlad: I am not a villian. All I wanted.. [frowns; pause] was love.
Vlad: (To Danielle, about Danny, while he is in the containment chamber) I still don't know how I'm going to get him to morph. Unless...unless you could overshadow him for me, dear. Force the transformation?
Danielle But the last clone that tried that melted. What if it's too much?
Vlad: Oh, it won't be.
Danielle: But what if...
Vlad: YOU EXIST TO SERVE ME! JUST DO IT!
Danielle: (Tears form in her eyes; she glares at Vlad angirly) YOU ARE NOT THE BOSS OF ME!
(Hits the unlock button to release Danny)
Vlad: No! No!
Danny: (Jumps free from the chamber; to Danielle) You're helping me now?
Danielle: Do you want to ask questions, or do you want to kick some butt?
Sam & Tucker: (After third clone messes up the cafeteria and Danny and Danielle go after it) Three, two, one.
Lancer: (Barges in) "To Kill a Mockingbird", people! Who started this?
(Dash points to Sam and Tucker)
Sam & Tucker: We'll get the mop.
Dani: (To Danny) It's Dani, with an i.
Danielle: (To Danny) Hi, I'm Danielle, your third cousin once removed.
Danielle: (To Vlad; after primary clone destabilizes) I can do this!
Danny: You don't have to. Cover your ears, and get behind me! (Takes a huge breath and uses Ghostly Wail on Vlad)
Vlad: Ahhhhhh! (Several objects get blown away because of Danny's Ghostly Wail, and Vlad tries to walk through the Ghostly Wail cone, but gets blown away from it, then gets smacked into the wall, with other objects)
Maddie Computer Program: (To Vlad; while Danny is still using Ghostly Wail) Systems damaged. Going critical. Losing coherence. And I never loved you; I loved the Jack Program.
Jack Computer Program: Vladdie! (Kisses Maddie Computer Program)
(as the Booomerang hits Vlad, he picks it up)
Vlad Plasmius: Oh, what stupidity is this?
Nicktoons Network Premiere date: August 29, 2008.
Ben Balistreri created the character design for Danielle/Dani Phantom.
Dani is Danny's female clone, but she's twelve while Danny is fourteen. This probably means that the cloning process was probably calculating on Danny's mature level. Since girls mature faster then boys, that would explain why Danny has a twelve year old female clone instead of a fourteen year old.
Apparently, even though Dani is Danny's clone, they consider each other cousins.
Apparently, there are living jackalope in the Danny Phantom universe.
The name of this episode comes for the fact that Dani is related to Danny (hence te word "kindred" which means relation or kindling), and spirit for the fact that Dani is a half-ghost like Danny.
Title Picture: Danny is melting into goo while the tiny clone is swirling around him, and the other two imperfect clones, with Dani Phantom are in the shadows.
Dani Phantom is the second alternate version of Danny that came into existance because of him getting ghost powers. The first was Dark Danny in "The Ultimate Enemy."
Despite Nick's shuffling the order of the last three episodes, this episode is the Season 2 finale chronologically.
This marks the second time that one of Vlad's minions led Danny straight to him, the first being the vultures in "Bitter Reunions."
Apparently, Danielle can't trigger Danny's ghost sense. Possibly because like Vlad, she's only half ghost.
Danny reveals that the FentonWorks Op-Center has a guest bedroom.
Opener: Vlad is monitoring images of Danny with a computerized version of Maddie, then sends three ghosts (imperfect clones of Danny) to go after him. After this, Vlad entertains himself with the computerized Maddie insulting Jack and starts laughing sinisterly.
This is the second time the band "Dumpty Humpty" is mentioned. It was first mentioned in the episode "Shades of Gray."
It is now apparent Vlad is unable to use the Ghostly Wail.
At the end of this episode, it is hinted that we can expect a new vehicle to be built by Jack because Tucker and Sam destroyed the Specter Speeder when they saved Danny.
Tucker reveals that Vlad's cabin in Colorado is near the Wyoming/Colorado border.
Apparently, Dash doesn't like apple juice.
Danny's eyes are a lighter shade of blue in this episode.
Although Danielle is supposed to have all the powers of Danny, she does not have the ghostly wail. Danny never used the ghostly wail around Valerie, which means her suit did not obtain the ghostly wail's data.
Look Hard: On Danny's bedroom wall, you can see a certificate of completion for a Junior Astronaut course.
At the end of this episode, we see Dani, now no longer being controlled by Vlad, flying into the sunset laughing. It's hinted here that Dani may make another apperance in the future.
For some strange reason, Butch Hartman used a different sound for the ghostly wail in this episode. Also, the ghostly wail cone was made different.
If you don't count Danny appearing in Vlad's files, this is the fourth episode where Danny doesn't appear in before the theme song.
Danielle is the fourth ghost that befreinds Danny, and is the first ghost he considers a relative.
Skulker's spectral energy neutralizer from "Bitter Reunions" returns.
Dani can retain the voice of whoever she overshadows, but not the eye color.
After being hinted in "Shades of Gray", it is revealed that Danny does like Dumpty Humpty since he has at least 3 of their CDs.
The Box Ghost is mentioned in this episode, but not seen.
Pariah Dark from "Reign Storm" is mentioned at the very beginning when Danny lies about being late.
The Lunch Lady (In meat form), Skulker, and the Ghost Dog from "Shades of Gray." all appear in flashbacks.
The Fentons have a pool. It is seen when the Specter Speeder was taking off from the yard.
The bumper sticker on the Specter Speeder reads, "My child is an honor student at Casper High". It obviously refers to Jazz.
Vlad uses an ectoplasmic dome for the first time.
Instead of getting a cat as Danny sugested on "Maternal Instincts", Vlad got a Maddie program (hologram) and a Jack program (hologram). Also the Maddie program says she never loved Vlad but, the Jack program instead.
Dani seems to have the same powers as Danny, excluding the Ghostly Wail.
Dani/Danielle and Danny both have the same emblem, but Dani's emblem is not as bright as Danny's.
Danny doesn't catch a ghost with the Fenton Thermos in this episode.
New Ghostly Ally(s): Danielle Fenton/Dani Phantom
Title Screen Caption: "It Will Leave You Feeling All "Gooey" Inside!
Jazz and Paulina do not appear in this episode.
Major Character Debuts: Danielle Fenton/Dani Phantom
We now know that Vlad had given Valerie her ghost hunting suit, and all of the weapons for the purpose of getting the data he needed to make the clone of Danny. Which means he must have had the idea of making a clone of Danny since "Shades of Gray" or sooner.
Danielle appears to 12, but is in fact is much younger, not more than a year old.
Apparantly Sam thinks that the Boo-merang is a stupid name.
The Specter Speeder from "Prisoners of Love", the Specter Deflecter from "Maternal Instinct" and the Boo-merang from "The Ultimate Enemy" all return. The Specter Speeder is destroyed, but at the end Jack seems to plan on making a newer and better one.
The three ghosts Vlad sent consisted of:
1) A skeleton wearing a bedsheet. It can fly and posesses some strength, but not much else.
2) A large muscular ghost that has incredible strength and can also fly.
3) A tiny ghost like insect which is really a miniture version of Danny. It can fly incredibly fast and glows green.
It is revealed that Vlad got rich not by plotting a business but by robbing banks and overshadowing business men forcing them to sell to him.
Danny's ectoplasmic blasts have grown even stronger since he can now destroy a small area with one blast.
Skulker is seen in a flashback, but in his original form, not the upgraded form from "Micro-Management."
It is revealed that the Ghost Dog from "Shades of Gray" did not disappear for good.
New Halfa: Danielle/Danni Fenton/Phantom
We learn that Vlad does not view himself as a villain, but as a man who seeks the love that he lost twenty years ago.
Marks the second apperance of the Boooo-Merang.
Marks the second apperance of Vlad's Mansion in the Colorado Rockies, the first appearence being "Maternal Instinct".
Dani can't use ghost powers that consume her energy because then she starts to melt.
Danielle isn't Danny's direct cousin, she claimed to be his third cousin once removed.
If Vlad can recover that quickly while Danny remains powerless after using the Ghostly Wail, then it may not be wise for Danny to use it against Vlad again.
This episode marks the fourth time in the series Danny uses his ghostly wail, but used for a longer period of time than he ever did before. This episode also marks the first time Vlad has both seen and been a victim of the Ghostly Wail.
Human Form: She wears a blue sweater with red shorts. Her shoes resemble Danny's, only with blue and white dots on the side. She wears a red beanie, and puts her hair into a ponytail, which also resembles Danny's hairstyle. Her eyes and hair are the same colors as Danny Fenton's.
Ghost Form: Her hair, still in a ponytail, and eyes are the same color as Danny Phantom's. Her emblem is the same, but darker, and her right hand's glove is black and her arm is white, the rest of her torso is the same as Danny's. Instead of a belt, she has a cut that shows her waist. Her pants have white streaks on the sides and instead of boots, she has shoes.
1) Dani melting into goo
2) Danny messing something up or avoiding trouble and Sam and Tucker getting in trouble for it
3) Someone calling Mr.Lancer "old man"
4) Someone telling Sam and Tucker, "You kids are in a world of trouble!"
Main Ghost Bio: Danielle "Dani" Phantom- A female version of Danny Phantom. Danielle is a twelve-year old clone created by Vlad as one of many creations for a clone of Danny. She claims to be his third cousin once removed. She was first obedient to Vlad, her "father", but after seeing he lied about saving her and is only interested in the primary clone, she sides with Danny. She has all of Danny's powers and Danny's interests.
Look Hard: On Danny's Wall, you see a poster saying "Explorer Hartman"
Main Villain(s): Vlad & Dani Phantom(Temporarily).
Dani Phantom: Little girl clone
The concept of Danielle, a cloned female version of Danny, is similar to that of X-23 of X-Men, a young girl who was cloned from Wolverine.
Failed Clones : All the 'failed' clones seem to be based on Bizarro, the imperfect clone of Superman. As the clones are failures becuase they don't have Danny's 'Mid-Morph' DNA, Bizarro is a failure because of Superman's complex alien DNA.
Title: Kindred Spirits
The title refers to two or more peole who are alike. This fits since Dani is Danny's clone and both are half-ghost.
Dani Phantom: (A female version of Danny Phantom)
A female version of a male superhero is common in some comicbooks. Examples include Supergirl/ Superman, Batgirl/ Batman, Spiderwoman/ Spiderman, etc.
Her ability to dampen her genetic progenitor's Ghost Sense and use his powers is similar to Venom, a Marvel comics character. He is invisible to Spider-Man's Spider Sense, a trait his "offspring" Carnage also possesses. Unlike Carnage, Venom's powers are all the same as Spider-Man's.
Dani: (A female clone of Danny)
Danielle may be somewhat based on X-23, Wolverine's female clone, namely how she was made.
Magazine: Sporting Illustrated
The name is an obvious parody of the real life magazine "Sports Illustrated."
Third Clone: Powers
It had the same powers as Wasp of the Avengers. Both can shrink and fly really fast.
The second clone: Appearance
It looks like the original version of The Incredible Hulk. Both have gray skin (The Hulk was supposed to be gray, but was changed to green), and have super strength.
After Danny uses the Ghostly Wail on Vlad, after Vlad recovers and starts walking towards him and transforms, the music resembles that of Jaws when the shark is about to attack.
Mr. Lancer: To Kill a Mockingbird, people!
To Kill A Mockingbird is a famous book that takes place during the Great Depression, narrated by the main character Scout, the daughter of morally sound lawyer Atticus.
Dani is similar to Rini/Sailor Mini Moon from Sailor Moon. Both have the same powers as their partners, and claim to be their cousins.
Dani: Charge up and blast
Her way of powering up a blast, like Danny, looks like the way they use the Kamehameha from the animated show Dragon Ball Z.
This episode has many reference to the clone saga of the Amazing Spiderman comic book series. Danielle plays the role of the Scarlet Spider, who was the only clone that Spiderman considered an ally and relative
Dani Phantom: Supergirl
Dani Phantom seems to be a parody of Supergirl. Like Supergirl, Dani claims to be the female cousin of the main superhero. In addition, both Supergirl and Dani have powers similar to their cousins. Also, their names (Dani Phantom -Danny Phantom) and (Kara-El - Kal-El) are similar to their cousins.
Mastersoft is an obvious parody on Microsoft. The man Vlad was overshoadwing even resembled Bill Gates, the creator of Microsoft, and the richest man on the planet.
