Episode Summary

Seeing an opportunity to finally bust her brothers, she follows them back through time to catch them building their rollercoaster, and exposes their antics to her mom.

Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • One of my Favorites!!!!!!

    Phineas and Ferb need a piece from the future to complete their machine, but they come across 36 year old Candace and her kids, Amanda, Xavier, and Fred. Amanda acts like Candace, Xavier and Fred act like Phineas and Ferb(except their much lazier), and Candace.... still acts like Candace. When she sees that Phineas and Ferb time traveled, she tells her mom. But she dosn't believe her.

    Meanwhile, back in present day Danville, present day Candace is waiting for the boys to come back in the machine. They come back, and get the piece they've been looking for. Future Candace decides to use the time machine, and bust the boys in the past, the day they built the Rollercoaster. She does, and goes back in the future, but it's now all messed up and ruled by Dr.Doof, all because she busted Phineas and Ferb. She finally goes back to the past, and tells Candace that busting the boys dosn't matter.

    Overall Grade:100%/A+moreless
  • Phineas and Ferbs...I can't pronounce the rest.

    Hah, I love this episode! One of my all-time favorites. Candace finally busted her brothers! Only, about thirty years from present day. The whole half-hour is an intriguing tale about time travel, reviving a central theme in a season one episode, "its About Time!" Not that I'm upset-this episode is definitely worth watching. It's really more of a Candace story-the episode revolves around her more. It even hints possible futures for the characters, but I won't give anything away. It will no doubt go under the ultimate fan favorites of Phineas and Ferb; the writers really showed their expertise in this episode, like always.moreless
  • The best episode ever!

    This is the best episode ever in the series and im gonna tell you why:first of all..i have a soft spot for time travel episodes of series`s and this is prbally the best time travel episode of a series.When the Candace from the alternate bad timeline poofed....part of the episode felt missing

    because its like we were following that Candace the whole episode!I liked the references they made to earlier episodes like "its about time!" and "Rollercoaster".Seeing future candace`s effect from showing her mom the rollercaoster was funny!I guess the mom really would get upset!Anyway on to the ending:It was funny and cute how Isabella reacted to finding out she might marry ferb and ferb`s reaction!And i liked how Isabella basically erased the entire episode by going back in time to give phinease the tool he and ferb went to the future to get!Well this episode was really good and the Best Episode Ever Of Phineas And Ferb!moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (22)

    • In the alternate future, Doofenshmirtz changes everyone names to Joe so he doesn't have to remember any other names. Sort of similar to when he names his crocodiles "Susan and Susan" (The Ballad of Badbeard).

    • At the end of It's a Charmed Life!, Doofenshmirtz holds a long note, along with the music at the end, it sounds the same as My Goody Two-Shoes Brother ( from the episode Tree to Get Ready).

    • When the older Candace enters the "Super Food and Stuff Mart" the sign on the front disappears, but reappears when she drags Linda out of the store.

    • The time machine is not plugged in because it's at an unpowered dump. However, it is possible that the inventor that brought the original machine to the Future built a self-powered one, but it seems more likely that it's a canon goof.

    • On the checkers board Perry and Doofenshmirtz used, it shows two checkers side-by-side. In checkers, all pieces stay on one of the two colors the entire game. However, it is possible that in the future, that the rule has changed, or that's just how Perry and Dr. Doofenshmirtz play.

    • When Candace was talking to Stacy about waiting to bust Phineas and Ferb she was talking on a home phone. But when she told her that they were on the move, she was talking on her cell phone.

    • If the current timeline stays the way it is, the only time Phineas and Ferb will ever get busted is 20 years in the future, and nothing will come of it.

    • Linda tells the kids that 30-year old Phineas is in Switzerland to receive an award. But likely NOT the Nobel Prize since it's awarded in Sweden. And 30-year old Ferb is in Camp David, Most likely in an advisory role, since being 30 would be too young to be President (35 years old being the minimum age). Also, the President must be born in the U.S., whereas Ferb was born in England.

    • Goofs: As seen from the clip in "Rollercoaster" Perry is seen with with the boys and Isabella after they climb down from the tree. But when the two future Candaces come asking for their help, the platypus is completely gone from the subsequent shots in the backyard. Also, Phineas' voice was different in the earlier episode as it was recorded before Vincent Martella's had changed.

    • Future Linda mentions that she's preparing for her Comeback(x7) Tour, presumably referring to her Lindana career first seen in Flop Starz. She says that if she does two more comeback tours, she gets a free pie.

    • Candace has three children, identical to her own family - two sons, Xavier and Fred, and a daughter, Amanda and it is implied that she and Jeremy have gotten married (due to the fact that Xavier bears a resemblence to Jeremy, and Candace mentions several times that when she marries Jeremy she will name her kids Xavier and Amanda).

    • When adult Candace advises Phineas and Ferb not to travel into the future again, Phineas pointed out that they came for the steel and wood fusing tool, but he couldn't have known this because he was the Phineas from the episode Rollercoaster and hadn't yet desired the tool for their project at the beginning of this episode.

    • Goof: The time machine that future Candace takes into the past was the original one used by Xavier Onassis (who briefly appeared) and it gets destroyed. Therefore, the time machine they all use in this episode and It's About Time should not have existed and Xavier Onassis himself would be stranded in the future unless he was able to build a new machine that looked like his original and journey back to the past. However, it's possible that Xavier Onassis could have made a prototype, seen that there was a flaw that couldn't be repaired in his time and started over from scratch, thus why Phineas and Ferb had to repair it in this episode in the first place.

    • In the alternate timeline, Perry the Platypus was put in an 18 month full body cast due to the tin foil ball, which allowed Dr. Doofenshmirtz to become supreme ruler of Danville.

    • Phineas and Ferb of the present are 10 years old, since Future Linda reveals they're 30 years old in her time. This means that Candace is 15 in the present and therefore, the adult version would be 35.

    • Isabella going back in time to give Phineas the tool he wanted from the future would have caused all of the events in the episode after the tool's delivery to only have happened in another time line, not affecting the core time line.

    • Future (or older) versions of characters not seen in this episode: Phineas, Ferb, Isabella, Lawrence (Ferb's dad), Jeremy, Suzy, Buford, Baljeet, Stacy, Vanessa Doofenshmirtz, and the Fireside Girls.

    • Future Candace reveals that future Stacy is the President of Urguary.

    • Perry still battles Doofenshmirtz in the future.

    • Candace's daughter Amanda sees Isabella and notes that she looks like their aunt Isabella meaning she married either Phineas or Ferb but it is unclear which one.

    • Thanks to the misuse of time travel by Candace; Doofenshrimtz becomes the ruler of Danville in an alternate future.

    • This is the second episode that shows Phineas and Ferb getting busted. However, neither actually happens since Phineas and Ferb Get Busted was a dream episode, and this one was undone by Candace herself (and eventually Isabella).

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Future Candace: Mom, you've got to come with me, right now!
      Future Linda: I can't right now, dear. I'm getting ready for my tour. It's my comeback, comeback, comeback, comeback, comeback...
      Future Candace: Mom. Mom, are you finished?
      Future Linda: Wait. Comeback tour. Two more comeback tours, and I get a free pie.

    • Future Candace: Guys, I need your help. The time machine I arrived in is smashed to pieces. I'm stuck here unless you guys can build me one.
      Phineas: Ferb, isn't there an old time machine in the Museum of Natural History?
      Future Candace: Yes. That's the one you fix later this summer when we go to the museum. It's the one I took back from the future, but now it's destroyed.
      Phineas: Okay. So the future time machine gets destroyed. That means the one here in the present is raring to go. We'll fix it, take you into the future, bring back the time machine, and unfix it again. So it'll be ready to be fixed when we go to the museum next time.
      Future Candace: Phineas, I'm a fully grown woman and I didn't understand any of that.
      Phineas: Just trust me. Come on!
      Isabella: Wow! Rollercoaster ride, now this. Bonus!

    • Future Linda: Candace, you're so young!
      Candance: (gasps) Mom, you're so... ooooooooooooo.llllllllllllllll.....
      Future Linda: You don't have to say that word. (Candace continues.) I mean it!
      Phineas: (entering the shop with Ferb and Isabella) Mom, you're so old! (Future Linda sighs)

    • Future Linda: Hi, boys. Aren't you a little young to be time travellers?
      Phineas: Yes. Yes, we are.

  • NOTES (3)

    • Songs: Today is Gonna Be a Great Day, Charmed Life.

    • Bowling for Soup, the group that performs the theme song for this series, makes a special guest appearance in this episode and sings the second verse of Today is Gonna Be a Great Day in the future.

    • The song that is played by Bowling for Soup in this episode is "Today is Gonna be a Great Day", which is also the song that the opening song is based on.


    • Brave New World
      When Doofenshmirtz rules the world the world in the alternate timeline, the Danville seen here is similar to the civilized world in the 1931 Aldous Huxley novel.

    • Some of the plot line of this episode is similar to the 1989 movie Back to The Future II.

    • The Thanksgiving scene during Dr. Doofenshmirtz's song is staged as a parody of Norman Rockwell's Thanksgiving inspired painting Freedom From Want which was created for the Saturday Evening Post in 1943.
