    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (9)

      • The old drawbridge from the episode Traffic Cam Caper makes a cameo in this one.

      • In this episode, Doofenshmirtz says that "you could even change your name to Amy", which may be a past reference to Phineas and Ferb's Quantum Boogaloo, where he orders everyone to change their names to Joe so he won't have to remember their names. Also, in The Ballad of Badbeard, Doofenshmirtz named his pet crocodiles "Susan and Susan".

      • In this episode, Doofenshmirtz sings in a different voice than his own, just like Ferb (Lawn Gnome Beach Party of Terror, De Plane! De Plane!) and Candace (Jerk de Soleil) did.

      • This is the second time Doofenshmirtz uses music to enslave/hypnotize the Tri-State Area. (First time: "Phineas and Ferb's Musical Cliptastic Countdown" with My Name is Doof.)

      • Doofenshmirtz declined to go to Perry's surprise birthday because it was probably a trap. It was said in much the same way as in Day of the Living Gelatin.

      • This is the second time in the show that Pinky is shown as a secret agent, the first being Day of the Living Gelatin.

      • This is the second time in the show that Candace has been shown driving, the first being It's a Mud, Mud, Mud, Mud World. Third if you count Phineas and Ferb Get Busted.

      • The flowered minivan can be seen when Candace shows Linda the boys' device (Isabella and the Temple of Sap).

      • Baljeet mentions that Phineas told him to "seize the day", which is part of the lyrics in the extended version of the theme song, "Today is Gonna Be a Great Day".

    • QUOTES (1)

      • Phineas: Do you have any extra time for a bubble?
        Baljeet: Uh, I guess I have time for one.
        Buford: Oh, oh! Can I blow a super-huge one? So I can crawl inside it, and float around like a little woodland pixie? Did I just say that out loud?
        Phineas: Yes, yes you did. But that actually sounds fun, minus the pixie part.

    • NOTES (1)

    • ALLUSIONS (4)

      • Bubble boy is a term used to describe a person who must live in a sterile environment for medical reasons. In popular culture, the term has been used for:

        The Boy in the Plastic Bubble, a 1976 film starring John Travolta.
        The Boy in the Bubble, a 1986 song by Paul Simon.
        Boy in the Plastic Bubble, a 1992 song by The Cavedogs.
        The Bubble Boy, a 1992 episode of the Seinfeld TV series.
        Bubble Boy, a 2001 film starring Jake Gyllenhaal.

      • Home on the Range
        Alameda Slim's hypnotic yodel version of the song sounds similar to Doofenshmirtz's.

      • The references to mixing "Country" and "Western" music may refer to the line in The Blues Brothers where the Bob's Country Bunker barmaid answers Elwood's question of "What kind of music do you usually have here?" to which she replies, "Oh, we got both kinds: Country and Western".

      • The Wizard of Oz
        When the bubble floats, it sounds the same way Glinda the Good Witch does in the 1939 movie.
