    Phineas and Ferb build a shrinking submarine so they can go inside Isabella's dog and retrieve a sash the pet ate, but they accidentally end up in Candace's stomach instead. Meanwhile, Perry must stop Doofenshmirtz from destroying people who can't make up their mind, but, the Doctor feels they should mix things up a little. Another excellent episode here on P&F. Both of the plot were perfect, but Doofenshmirtz's plot was a tad funnier and I'll list that why. As for the P&F plot, I liked/laughed Candace yelling about Jeremy asking a date (then Phineas and Ferb went outside), Pinky (Isabella's dog) eating Isabella's sash, Phineas and Ferb making a small submarine to get the sash, Pinky chasing a cat, Candace eating the grilled sandwich which that cause Phineas and Ferb to be on Candace's stomach, "That's creepy on so many levels," and maybe one more scene. For Doof/Perry, it was funnier because the plot was hilarious and I liked all the parts of it. I got my biggest laugh during the credits sequence when Doofenshmirtz said that he said pee all over tri-state area...LOL!!! Overall, a perfect episode that was super funny in my opinion. 10/10moreless
  • Phineas and Ferb go into Candace and she's not liking it.

    This is the episode that got me hooked on the series. It pretty much sets all the standards, humor and themes for the whole series plus its a parody of a movie I know very well and because of it, just thinking of this episode done live-action makes it even funnier. Phineas and Ferb create a shrinking sub and get misdirected into Candace, and they hack into her nervous system to control her like a robot when she is on a date. I think what makes the series so appealing is that Ashley Tisdale and Mitchel Musso do voices in it. It makes it that much more funnier watching and imagining it live-action.moreless
  • Phineas and Ferb building a shrink ray and submarine, while Perry and Doofenshmirtz fight over his "make up your mindinator".

    8.0
    This episode was pretty average, but was still pretty good. Nice to see Perry actually catch Doofenshmirtz for once, rather than destroy his plans, but let him escape. Also interesting to see that, if he's ever caught, they don't know what to do with him. The Phineas and Ferb storyline worked really well, too. Kid of hard for Candace to mess with them when their inside her stomach. Though, the camera work of Candace and Jeremy leaving the park to the left and entering the city to the right looked kinda odd. Also wondering when did Candace swallow the eyeball they saw in her stomach :)



    Overall a good ep. Grade : Bmoreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (3)

    • Candace eats grilled cheese without any negative effects despite having an allergy to dairy. Also, Pinky probably shouldn't eat them either; Dogs, especially older ones, are notoriously lactose-intolerant.

    • Musical song: Hemoglobin Highway

    • Phineas and Ferb are completely open about their adventures with their parents, however their parents just assume they're imagining it all. This explains why in Flop Starz, when Candace said she would tell Mom, Phineas just said, "Okay, tell her what?" Phineas assumes that Linda and Lawrence always are aware of what goes on, thus, it's must be okay for them to do it.

  • QUOTES (5)

    • (Shrunken inside Pinky the Chihuahua)
      Doofenschmirtz: (connecting to Pinky's brain) Perfect. Now I can pee all over the Tri-State area! (laughs maniacally, but becomes awkwardly silent) Oh, what am I doing with my life?!

    • Isabella(about the plan) Gross, but cool. Except Pinky will eat anything but dog food. His favorite is grilled cheese sandwiches.
      (Pinky starts panting)
      Phineas: Ok, you make the sandwich, we'll make the sub.
      (Ferb starts panting like Pinky)

    • (Jeremy notices that Candace was shaking because Phineas and Ferb got control of her arms and legs)
      Jeremy: Candace, are you all right?
      Candace: (laughs nervously) Never better.

    • Phineas:(Looking through Candace's eyes) Candace is on her date with Jeremy. That means we're on a date with Jeremy.
      Ferb: Again, creepy on so many levels.

    • Phineas: Yeah, we're inside Candace's stomach.
      Ferb: That's creepy on so many levels.

  • NOTES (2)

  • ALLUSIONS (2)

    • This episode bears shocking resemblance to the Dexter's Laboratory episode Fantastic Boyage, where Dexter shrinks himself in a submarine to microscopic size and attempts to enter DeeDee, but ends up inside the family dog.

    • Title: Journey to the Center of Candace


      A reference to the Novel, Journey to the Centre of the Earth by Jules Verne and the movie with the same title.
