"Perry Lays an Egg"

Phineas and Ferb accidentally trap Candace in a video game and have to help her out so that she can get ready for the cotillion. Meanwhile, Perry has to stop Doofensmirtz from zapping men into wearing ballgowns.

Episode SummaryEdit


Phineas and Ferb are hanging out with Buford, Baljeet, and Isabella outside their house. Buford is playing a game called "Jump N' Duck", where all you have to do to beat the game is to jump and duck. Phineas thinks the game is cool, and sees Buford's head on the main character in the game. Phineas takes a picture of himself on the console and his head appears on the game, which gives Phineas an idea. He decides that they're going to create their very own video game in which you can program yourself into it and have to beat the game to get back out.

Meanwhile, Candace gets a call from Jeremy and he asks her to go on a date with him to the summer cotillion, which Candace explains is a fancy word for dance. She blow-dries her hair when the power goes out from Phineas and Ferb's gaming system. Candace goes downstairs to interfere but accidentally walks in front of the scanner and programs herself into the game. Phineas and Ferb watch her for a few minutes and figure out that she can't beat the game by herself, so they program themselves into the game to help her beat it.


Perry goes over to the Doofenshmirtz Evil Incorporated building and finds out that Doofenshmirtz has created a ballgowninator to turn everyone in the Tri-state area girly so that he could look the manliest of them all. He tests out his invention on Perry and Perry is immediately dressed in a blue ball gown. Perry and Doofenshmirtz fight and the ray hits Doofenshmirtz, making him wear a dress as well. He feels humiliated because his invention was supposed to be for the whole Tri-state area and not himself.


Phineas and Ferb program themselves into the game. Candace gets chased by mad fruits and uses her blowdryer to defeat them and tells them they should've named it "Jump, Duck and Blow." When she gets to the final level, she sees a gigantic Buford that is the final level's boss. Candace shouts at Buford and he knocks her blowdryer down the cliff. She then grabs her health bar and hits him upside the head, knocking him backwards and crushing Phineas and Ferb as he falls off the cliff. Candace rushes to Phineas and Ferb's side and breaks down, thinking that they are dead. They disappear and reappear behind her, stating that they have four lives left. Candace gets mad because she thought they had died, but she has defeated the final level.

However, the game is not over yet. The last level is in the real world, and Buford is back and twice as strong. When Buford is about to defeat Phineas, Ferb, and Candace, Isabella creates a diversion by waving her arms and yelling. Phineas yells at Isabella to stop and to leave them and save herself, but when Buford walks over to Isabella, she takes a picture of him and zaps him back into the game. Phineas, Ferb, and Candace have defeated their game, but Candace hears a knock on the gate. Jeremy arrives to pick her up for their cotillion, but Candace isn't even ready yet.

Doofenshmirtz shoots his ballgowninator at Phineas, Ferb, and Isabella, giving them all ball gowns. Perry drops down and his dress slips off, landing directly on Candace. Jeremy states that he thinks Candace is beautiful, and that everyone else looks beautiful too despite being obviously weirded out by Phineas and Ferb in gowns. They then go off to the cotillion.

Running GagsEdit

The "Too Young" LineEdit


Ferb's LineEdit

Candace: Oh no! Jeremy's here! How am I going to get ready in three seconds?

(Phineas, Ferb, and Isabella suddenly get zapped by Doofenshmirtz's Ballgowninator ray and are instantly clothed in ballgowns.)

Ferb: Apparently, do what we did.

Whatcha doin'?Edit


Perry's entrance to his lairEdit


Memorable QuotesEdit

Phineas: Oh, you want cheat codes? No, we don't roll like that.

Isabella: You know what they say, the bigger they are the harder they de-pixelate.

Phineas: Whoa, what happened here? Oh, that's right, Candace has her hairdryer. We'll just follow the carnage.

Jeremy: Wow, you look beautiful. I guess you... all look beautiful. Heh.
Phineas: Thanks. We think it's part of the game.
Jeremy: Okay...

Dr. Doofenshmirtz: Oh I am honored. And at the same time humiliated, so thank you and curse you.

Major Monogram: Good morning, Agent P. I've been monitoring Doofenshmirtz's internet activity. First, we know what you're getting for Christmas. Don't ask. Our lips are sealed. It's a vase.

Doofenshmirtz: You see, it's hard to fight when you're wearing a ballgown.

(Jeremy calls Candace's name off-screen)

Candace: Oh no, Jeremy's here! How am I going to get ready in three seconds?
(the Ballgowniator hits Phineas, Ferb, and Isabella, causing them to look down at their new dresses)

Ferb: Apparently, do what we did.

Buford: And then you do this... and this... and this and this and this and this and this... and this, and this, and this and this... and then thisnthis... and then that!

Background InformationEdit

  • This episode shows the first instance of any character experiencing anything close to a near death experience, as described by Wikipedia.
  • This is the first time Phineas gives any indication of feelings for Isabella. The next is in the Chronicles Of Meap.
  • Goof: On the boss level, Candace tucks her towel into itself. However, throughout the episode, there are times where she raises her arms.
  • Monogram tells Perry what he's getting for Christmas from Doofenshmirtz (a vase), and this is in fact true. Doofenshmirtz gives Perry a vase in Phineas and Ferb Christmas Vacation!.

  • The gag with Doofenshmirtz checking his watch to make sure Perry is too late is recycled from a joke originally used in the Original Story Pitch.
  • Candace's new hairdo from the end of "Got Game?" reappears when she slips into the ballgown.
  • The song Let's Go Digital sounds very alike to one that appeared in Out of Toon when Phineas tells Candace about the creation of the cartoon film of Team Improbable.
  • When Candace is blow drying her hair, there are several beauty products on her counter marked with an "FG" logo, referring to the Flawless Girl products in the episode Attack of the 50 Foot Sister.
  • Major Monogram says that "the most ominous of all" is velour and the molecular structure of the velour [shown on monitor] is in the form of a sad face.


  • Super Mario Bros.: The coin-grab sound effect plays when the characters generate in the video game, and the clothes the character wears in the normal version of jump and duck looks just like Mario's clothes (save for the lack of overall straps).
  • Virtual Boy: The new-improved version of Jump and Duck is similar to the Nintendo Virtual Boy.
  • Nintendo DSi: At the very beginning Buford has a video game that allows him to take his picture and insert it into the game. Timely, as the Nintendo DSi just released in North America on April 5th, its biggest new capability being an added built-in camera.
  • Beauty and the Beast: When Perry gets zapped by the Ballgowninator, the music briefly plays the opening notes from that film's title song. It plays again when Doofenshmirtz gets zapped by the ray, and then again when Perry's ballgown lands on Candace.
  • MC Escher's Relativity: The structure in the videogame visited by Candace , Phineas and Ferb during the song Let's Go Digital is similar to this painting.
  • Jack and the Giant Beanstalk: Candace jumps on top of a pineapple and it grows into a giant beanstalk.
  • Star Trek: The Next Generation: The visor Baljeet wears during the song is very similar to Geordi La Forge's.
  • Digimon: The song's title refers to a recurring song in the Digimon franchise aptly named "Going Digital".
  • Tron: Candace is 'digitized' into the game world kind of like Kevin Flynn was digitized. (And they also have the same last name)
  • Devo: Let's Go Digital is similar to some of Devo's electronic musical styles; Baljeet's sunglasses are similar to those worn by the band in early days; Devo was an early adopter of new types of instruments such as Isabella's keyboard and Buford's electronic drums. Devo frontman Mark Mothersbaugh has done the music for Rugrats, and the movie, Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs.
  • Serial Experiments, Lain: Candace's hair during her run through the videogame is identical to the character from the anime cult-classic about a girl who enters an alternate world within a videogame.
  • Pac-Man.: The sound effect when the ghosts eyes float when Pac-Man eats them plays when Candace zaps the bad guys with her hair blower in the video game.
  • The Fairly Odd Parents: This episode has similar elements to the Fairly Odd Parents episode "Power Mad", where Timmy wishes for a new Virtual Reality game, which, due to Cosmo and Wanda, literally pulls players into the game.
    • Buford being the final boss of the game is another allusion to "Power Mad", where Timmy's evil babysitter Vicky is the final boss of his game.
  • Danny Phantom: An episode of Danny Phantom has Danny entering a online game in order to defeat Technas. While in the game, Danny is given access to both his characters moves, and his ghost powers, which he uses to hurry to the final level, and Technas. This is similar to Candace, who used her hairdryer to make her way through the game so she could get ready for her date with Jeremy.
