Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • This episode made me hungry on dessert...lol

    Phineas and Ferb try to make the biggest ice cream maker for Isabella after her tonsils are taken out. Doofenshmirtz's daughter, Vanessa, spends the day at his lair and tries to convince his ex-wife that he's evil. I thought this was a superb episode. I liked Phineas and Ferb's plot better because the ice cream maker (the one that they made for Isabella) kinda made me hungry. lol. The sub plot was good also. It was a little funny in some parts. The funniest part was the ending when Ferb was just looking at Vanessa and then Phineas asked "Ferb, what's happen?" then he replied "I was weak." Overall, a superb episode. 9/10moreless
  • Phineas and Ferb build a sundae machine for Isabella, while Doofenshmirtz builds a raygun and his daughter tries to bust him for being evil.

    This is a fantastic episode. It does a great job of showing that Candace isn’t alone in her quest to bust a family member for what they do on a regular basis. It's interesting to see that the Doofenshmirtz family has perfect mirror images of the Flynns, even if we don't see Vanessa's daily issues with her dad. Great to see a lengthy Perry storyline too, kind of a rare thing for the series. Also, a ton of great references to earlier episodes, like Candace being in charge if a satellite hits the house and the "Flop Starz" song playing in the waiting area. Overall, a great episode. Grade : B+moreless
  • MARVEL at the giant ice cream machine! TREMBLE at the evil tonsillitis! READ this Tiggertine-Approved review RIGHT NOW!

    While not my favorite episode of Phineas and Ferb ever, this episode certainly did give us a lot of information on the characters. Isabella has tonsillitis, so the boys, being the darling sweethearts they are, decide to make a giant ice-cream machine to make her a sundae. Meanwhile, Vanessa makes another appearance and tries to 'bust' her dad for being evil, just like Candace does with her brothers, and they even sing 'Busted' together (a song that I really like). Then, we get an unexpected shocker when Candace realizes her deep, profound love for Vanessa and they get married in a foreign country somewhere....no, not really.

    We find out a lot of info on Vanessa, including that her parents are divorced and she doesn't really approve of Doofy's evil lifestyle and all that jazz, so this was a pretty important episode. At times it felt a bit boring, but still. Watch it. :D

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (8)

    • Doofenshmirtz's answering machine begins with his company jingle.

    • During the scene where Doofenshmirtz is explaining why he's making the Laser-inator, he points out a billboard blocking his view. The billboard is advertising the "Brick" toy from the episode "Toy to the World".

    • In Doofenshmirtz's waiting area, you can hear the "Gitchee-Gitchee Goo" elevator music playing.

    • Doofenshmirtz's ex-wife is in the same cooking class as Linda.

    • When Linda comes back from her class and greets the boys, she doesn't see anything out of place. However, just a few moments before, we see the giant laser gun in the corner of the yard that they forgot to attach to the Laser-inator. Wouldn't she have seen this?

    • Goof: During the Busted song, the machine Doofenshmirtz is building is dark grey and green. However, later in the episode the same machine is light grey and blue.

    • Phineas brings back the rule from Rollercoaster, that Candace can only be in charge if a satellite falls out of orbit and crashes into the house

    • Musical Song: Busted

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Candace: (on the phone) You're not gonna believe this, Stacy, but when I turned around, Jeremy was standing right behind me! Well, he was actually sitting, and he was a couple of blocks away, but he was right there!

    • Isabella: (about the sundae) Wow guys, this is amazing! I was afraid you were gonna go overboard and build some giant sundae contraption or something.
      Phineas: Actually, we were gonna do that, but we accidentally built a space laser instead. Ferb, you're usually so focused, how could you get those plans confused?
      (Ferb flashes back to the plans shop when Vanessa walked in, from his view, Vanessa is surrounded by flowers and dreamy music plays)
      Vanessa: Hey, how's it going?
      Phineas: Hey Ferb, (back to the present) snap out of it. What happened back there?
      Ferb: I, was weak

    • Doofenshmirtz: Now to launch my creation, and begin my reign of terror. Evil terror!

    • Delivery Man: Here's the stuff. But aren't you...
      Phineas: A little young to be using titanium plating and an industrial arc welder? Yes, yes I am. I get that a lot.

  • NOTES (2)


    • In this episode, Ferb, played by Thomas Sangster, has a crush on Vanessa, played by Olivia Olsen. Ironically, in the movie Love Actually, the character Sam (Sangster) has a crush on a girl called Joanna (Olsen).

    • Title: I Scream, You Scream

      This is the beginning of the famous saying: "I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream".
