Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (5)

    • Notice when you see the crowd when the title card for "The Princess Sensibilities" is shown during the movie, you can see everyone is frowning except for one guy. But when the title card changes to "The Curse of the Princess Monster" You can see everyone happy except that one person who is now frowning, claiming that he might like The Princess Sensibilities.

    • Phineas mentions that the snakes are rubber, as they were in Rollercoaster.

    • This is the only episode in the series that does not have a song.

    • Phineas and Ferb have a website.

    • Ashley Tisdale, who voices Candace, was shown on Phineas and Ferb's computer screen while editing the movie. This explains why, when viewing the final edit of the movie, Candace exclaims, "I, I, I, I look beautiful!"

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Isabella: (on phone) Look, my client gets 3% of the gross and a piece of the back end or we walk! Yeah, that's right. You mess with the bull, you get the horns buddy!

    • (Perry breaks through Doofenshmirtz's door)
      Doofenshmirtz: Perry the Platypus? Why do you keep breaking down my door? Why don't you knock first, it's not even locked. This time you'll pay!
      (Perry gets out his wallet and gives doofenshmirtz a few notes of money)
      Doofenshmirtz: That's right, fork it over. What are you kidding me, that's not just dry wall, it's solid oak.
      (Perry gives him an extra few notes)
      Doofenshmirtz: That's more like it. You can't just go busting into people's houses for no reason, you know. Besides, I've given up evil to pursue the art of cheese making.

    • Phineas:(about the filming of the Princess Sensibilities) That's serendipitous.

    • Candace:(wearing the fruit hat) Wow, is this banana hat for some sort of tropical dance number?
      Phineas: We're trying to come up with some exiting camera angles for the big chase scene, so we strapped a camera to this starving monkey.
      (the monkey screeches and chases Candace, the camera view closes in on Candace, then cuts out to Phineas and Candace standing again, with Phineas holding a sandwich.)
      Phineas: Sorry that monkey cam didn't work out, we're gonna try it with Ferb this time. Take this sandwich and remember, Ferb hasn't had his lunch yet.
      (Ferb begins screeching like the monkey, then the camera view closes in on Candace again, cutting out)

    • Phineas: Enjoy it while it lasts, Candace. Fame is fleeting.
      Ferb: But the internet is forever.

    • Candace: Wait, wait. Don't you think there a little young to be big budget movie directors.
      Producer: With 176 million hits, they could be in diapers for all I care.

  • NOTES (5)


    • "Fame is Fleeting, but the Internet is Forever"

      This is based on the quote by Napoleon Bonaparte
      "Glory is fleeting, but obscurity is forever"

    • Candace's favorite play is "The Princess Sensibilities". This may be a play on Meg Cabot's book "The Princess Diaries", which was also adapted into a film.

    • Title: Lights, Candace, Action!

      This is a parody of the line that some directors say: "Lights, Camera, Action!".
