Phineas and Ferb help their friend Django impress his artist father by painting the unpainted desert. Meanwhile, Dr. Doofenshmirtz tries to impress his old evil science teacher, Dr. Gevaarlijk.

Episode SummaryEdit

The Flynn-Fletcher family is with Django at his dad's museum of every-day objects. Django's dad Beppo is too busy to hang out with his son, but promises to catch up with him later. Meanwhile, Perry is spending his day off watching soap operas only to be interrupted by Major Monogram, who informs him that Doofenshmirtz's mentor would visit her student that day. Django made his dad a card but thinks that, since everything his dad makes is so big, he wouldn't appreciate his gift. Phineas and Ferb help Django recreate his card on a larger scale: painting it on the famous Unpainted Desert. Conveniently, Django's dad had made a working sculpture of really big art supplies.

Agent P arrives at Doofenshmirtz's home and, through a song, Doofenshmirtz explains that he had always tried his best to impress his professor, Dr. Gevaarlijk, even though she hated him, and that day would be his last chance to leave a good impression. Phineas, Ferb and Django finish painting Django's drawing and make it so big it covers most of a sand dune. When Dr. Gevaarlijk arrives at Doofenshmirtz house, she is impressed by some of the inventions he made, but is then disappointed when she learns that none of them actually worked. Desperate, he tells her that his blender is a "blenderinator, spelling doom for even the toughest of apples". After some sarcastic comments, Dr. Gevaarlijk tries to leave, but Doofenshmirtz insists on showing him more proof of his evilness. He shows her Perry the Platypus, his very own nemesis, but, since he doesn't have a hat, Gevaarlijk thinks he is just a mindless animal; Doofenshmirtz decides to try to impress her one last time.

At the art exhibition, Candace is starting to enjoy herself. However, when she sees the painting Phineas and Ferb made, she reverts to her usual self and tries, once more, to bust them. Doofenshmirtz then reveals to his mentor his latest evil plan of blowing up the moon. Finally, Dr. Gevaarlijk shows some approval, stating that she has always hated moon-related songs. Yet again, Dr. Doofenshmirtz fails (he accidentally moved the machine and it hit a dam). The water from the dam cleans the paint off the sand right before Candace can show her mom. Django ends up giving his dad the original drawing and his dad says that, no matter what size it is, it's beautiful, and proceeds to put it on the fridge. Gevaarlijk, sad because she has always loved toe-tapping dam songs, says that Doofenshmirtz is a total failure and leaves. Heinz asks Perry if he thinks he's evil. Perry gives him a warming smile and Doofenshmirtz says "Thank you, Perry the Platypus. Thank you."

Running GagsEdit

The "Too Young" LineEdit


Ferb's LineEdit

Beppo is putting his son's painting up on the refrigerator he made for his art exhibit.

Phineas: Wow! There's no higher place of honor than the fridge.

Ferb: Especially the giant fridge.

Whatcha doin'?Edit


Perry's entrance to his lairEdit

With the family out of the house, Perry is watching "his stories" on the TV in the living room, until Major Monogram interrupts him with news that Doofenshmirtz's old professor is in town and together they are bad news. Perry puts on his secret agent hat and walks away.

Memorable QuotesEdit

Man in soap opera: I love you.

Woman in soap opera: No, I love you much more than you love me.
Man: I hate you.

(They both kiss and Perry cries.)

Dr. Doofenshmirtz: But follow me. I-I do have something even more impressive over there... my brand new... Blenderinator! Spelling doom for even the toughest of apples! (turns on blender) Bow down to me, Granny Smith!
Dr. Gevaarlijk: Ja, I'm sure if I was a pomaceous fruit I would be trembling. Where is your phone-inator? I need to call a cab-inator.

Dr. Gevaarlijk: In your letters, you said your nemesis was a 'suave, semi-aquatic personification of unstoppable, dynamic fury'.

Dr. Doofenshmirtz: He's just about to do something! Wait for it...

Perry chatters
Dr. Doofenshmirtz: Hmm, I guess it's just a platypus! I could have sworn it was him!

Dr. Gevaarlijk: Heinz, this is just sad.

Candace: Mom, mom, mom!

Django: Dad, dad, dad!

Doofenshmirtz: Doctor, doctor, doctor! Oh, I didn't mean to shout, you were standing right there.

Dr. Gevaarlijk: Oh, Heinz, evil doesn't always have to be on a big scale. You can spread evil in the little things you do every day.

Dr. Doofenshmirtz: (tearing up) You're right...

Dr. Gevaarlijk: But, sadly, you can't even do that right! You're a total failure!
