Perry the Platypus
This is the second time that Candace has screamed twice at absolutely nothing, where there once was evidence.
This marks the first episode that Candace sings.
In the episode, they talk about how one-hit wonders have songs that are eventually used as elevator music. In further episodes in the series, you can hear both the PFT song and the Lindana song being used as 'elevator music' in random places, such as at the mall, in movie theaters, and of course, in elevators. Even Doofenshmirtz has been heard humming the tunes or listening to them while he works. The only instance that one of these songs has not been elevator music is in the episode One Good Scare Ought to Do It!, where an elevator jingle of the song "One Little Scare Ought to Do Some Good" plays instead.
Musical Song: Gitchee Gitchee Goo
Phineas and Ferb live in the town of Danville, a reference to a creator of the show, Dan Povenmire.
Phineas and Ferb's mom used to be the singer Lindana.
We find out that Phineas and Ferb's toilet leads to Perry's secret lair.
This episode is the first time that we see Phineas and Ferb's kitchen.
Vin Baxter: Hi. I'm Vin Baxter, Huge-O Records! Drop by my office later, and we'll talk about your future!
Phineas: Future? Cool, he must be a psychic.
Doofenshmirtz: Perry the Platypus?! You're a temp? Are times that hard?
Candace: How did you get a hit single?
Phineas: Well, it wasn't easy. It took most of the morning and half a dozen phone calls!
Candace: Wait a minute! What are you doing?!
Phineas: I'm cuing you....
Phineas: (to record producer) Follow up single? Who do you think we are? A band who will keep making song after song just because you offer us obscene amounts of cash!?
Phineas: That pop star stuff might be fun at first, but then you'd be stuck in a dead end job. Too bad you can't just do it once and move on.
Mom: What you're talking about is a one-hit wonder. (has flashback of pop star days)
Record Producer: Aren't you a little young to be pop stars?
Phineas: (looks at Ferb) No.
Candace: (onstage with Phineas and Ferb) That's it! I'm going to tell mom!
Phineas: Okay... tell her what.
Candace: (thinks) I'm just going to tell.

The song "Gitchy Gitchy Goo" is extremely similar to a song that was featured in a Jetsons episode, called Eep Op Ork Ahh Ahh. Both songs were supposed to just be nonsense, and both were very popular at the time of their release.
Ferris Bueller's Day Off
When Perry and Linda meet at the traffic light and Linda thinks she sees someone familiar, it is similar to a scene late in "Ferris Bueller's Day Off", when Ferris is running home next to his dad's car.
When Candace is trying on outfits, she is seen wearing a sailor suit, a biker outfit, native american clothes, a policeman's uniform, and construction worker clothes. These were the outfits worn by the five members of the 1970s disco group, the Village People
