Candace feels depressed when Jeremy cancels their date. So Phineas and Ferb try to cheer her up. Meanwhile Perry is on the run from the OWCA after seeing videos of him committing bad deeds; as it turns out they were Perry Clones created by Doofenshmirtz in order to frame Perry.

Episode SummaryEdit

The boys are building The Temple of Angkor Wat out of playing cards while Isabella tries to take a photo. Candace is in her room reading from her magazine when Jeremy call her. He says he has to cancel their date and hangs up after she froze like a statue and does not talk. Candace screams so loudly the tower Phineas and Ferb were building collapses. They then go and see what's wrong with Candace and she says she's going through a teenage dilema. Phineas asks Isabella how to cheer Candace up and she takes out her teen magazine. It states there are three stages to cheer up a friend: give her a makeover, make her laugh and introduce her to someone new.

Meanwhile, Perry enters the HQ and sits down. Two agents, Agent E and a bulldog agent, appear behind him when Major Monogram appears on the screen. He is crying because Perry is apparently stealing money, running from police officers, eating cereal (which the real agent P did before his mission) and lots of other naughty things. Monogram then says to Perry he is fired, but then Perry runs away. Monogram sets the alarm for a rogue agent while Perry makes a getaway.

In Candace's room, Candace calls Stacy and says she'll be right over. A clown knocks on the door and enters, giving Candace a makeover. Unfortunately, her makeover turns her into a clown. Stacy arrives saying they should go out somewhere to make her feel better. Phineas and Ferb arrange a comedy show for Candace and Stacy. They arrive and watch the show. Baljeet has a puppet, Buford rummages through his box of things and tries to make a joke about some of the items. Lastly, Ferb gives it a try by saying 'What's with airline food?' and everyone but Candace burst out laughing.

Perry arrives near Doofenshmirtz Evil Incorporated and sees a doppelganger of himself entering the building with a sack. Perry enters and finds a whole army of platypi like Perry, only with different names. Heinz Doofenshmirtz claims that to defeat someone you need to fight fire with fire, in this case, Perry with Perry. All of the lookalikes attack Perry but he fends them off. He then presses a button to make the machine suck in everything including Doofenshmirtz, breaking the machine. The machine explodes sending Perry flying.  Phineas and the other guys are parachuting down to the park. Perry uses his parachute and Monogram phones him saying Perry is still an agent. Perry smiles and lands on the ground.

Phineas tries one last time to cheer up Candace by putting her in the 'Mix 'n' Mingle' machine. This is where Candace meets lots of new people from around Danville. It doesn't work so Stacy suggests they go and get an ice-cream. Jeremy is at the stall giving out ice-cream. Candace is suprised to see Jeremy there but Jeremy just says he wanted to earn some extra money for their date. Candace and Jeremy then get into a horse and cart and ride around the park whilst Jeremy explains he wanted money for his date. He hoped Candace wasn't one of those girls who take it very seriously and she just laughs nervously. Candace is last seen throwing her magazine out of the cart.

Running GagsEdit

The "Too Young" LineEdit


Ferb's LineEdit

Ferb: So, how about that airline food?

Whatcha doin'?Edit


Perry's entrance to his lair. Edit

While a dog is sleeping in a dog house, Perry opens the dog house's front, showing the audience that the "dog" doesn't have a bottom. He goes through the doghouse, while the door closes by itself. The dog wakes up and realizes what happened.

Memorable QuotesEdit

Candace: Oh, would you look at this? If I wasn't so depressed, my brothers would be so busted!

Candace: Now don't try anything funny!

Candace: He just broke our date AND hung up on me. Oh, it's probably not as bad as I think. Let's see what Quazmo has to say about it. (looks at the magazine and finds something shocking and starts whimpering)

Phineas: The last card. You do the honors, Ferb.
(Candace screams at the top of her lungs and causes a riot of scaring a flock of birds, making dogs bark at each other, causing manatees to dive into the ocean, having monkeys jump around and wail and Tarzan shout his trademark cry; the monkeys look at Tarzan angrily)

Tarzan: What?

Phineas: Candace has a great sense of humor. Remember the time she got her face caught in the sink?

Baljeet: So, little Jeet, I hear you went to New Delhi. And did you try the chicken club?

Baljeet's Dummy: Wow. That's really what you're going with? You know, just do the water drinking bit.
Baljeet: Okay. The pythagorean theorem... (drinks water)
Baljeet's Dummy: Is the square of the hypotenuse of a right tri-
(Baljeet chokes on the water)

Phineas: Let's hear it for the dummy! And that puppet wasn't bad either.

Buford: (as Broccoli Top) I'm gonna do some prop comedy for you, and you're gonna like it! Okay, what have we got? (reaches into the box and gets a house) Here's's a house! For, uh...I don't know. A mouse or something. (drops and breaks house; gets a book from his box) Here's a book! Hey, what am I...what am I supposed to do? Read? (throws book) Next! All right, let's see what else we've got! Um, and here's, uh, um... (gets out an oyster sheel) An oyster shell! Look! mom went to a seafood restaurant...I don't have's me, it's just interesting. I'll put that one back in the box. (puts shell back in box) What else we got? Oh here we go! Look! (pulls out Baljeet) A nerd to go with the book!

Baljeet: I am in both acts!
Buford: (throws Baljeet off stage and onto Ferb's drum set) Thank you! Buford's still in the building!
Candace: This isn't making me feel any better.

Buford: What? You wanna wrestle?

Candace: Say, aren't you the dummy from the club?

Baljeet and his dummy look at each other.

Baljeet's Dummy: She's talking to you.

Major Monogram: (while clips of bad deeds done by Agent P are shown) Agent P, um.. well, due to your reprehensible behavior over the past few days, which I still barely believe is even possible from an agent of your caliber, who's been nothing but the best in his field, (shows clip of Agent P eating cereal) I... actually don't know what was particularly bad about this clip here, but we have no choice but—

Carl: Why, why'd you do it?
Major Monogram: Not yet Carl, wait until I'm done here. You are officially discharged. Okay, now Carl.
Carl: Why, why'd you do it?

Major Monogram: Cuff him, boys.

Dr. Doofenshmirtz: You see it occured to me that what I really should be doing is fighting fire with fire. And by fire, I mean Perry the Platypus, and by fire, I ALSO mean Perry the Platypus. It occured to me while I was on fire.

Phineas: Hey, where's Candace? I'm sure she'd love to see this!
Paraphrasing the famous "Hey, where's Perry?" line

Doofenshmirtz: ...and say aloha to Jerry the Platypus... (shows distorted Perry lookalike) Yeah, he was the first one out of the batch, but you know, he was so cute, I couldn't bear to- (Jerry hits Doofenshmirtz with the pipe he was drooling on) Ow! Ow! No, no Jerry you cannot hit people, you do not- (Jerry hits him again) No, use your words Jerry!
