While Phineas and Ferb help Baljeet build a portal to Mars, Candace thinks no one, not even her friends, wants to talk to her. An accidental trip to Mars lifts her spirits. Perry helps Dr. Doofenshmirtz shop for supplies for his baking soda volcano.

Episode SummaryEdit


At the same time that Baljeet tells Phineas and Ferb his problem about his portal to Mars, Candace is sitting in her room with her cell phone. She tries calling Stacy, Jeremy, Jenny, and some of her old friends, but none of them pick up. Candace thinks they are all avoiding her and walks outside. She sees Phineas and Ferb's bikes at Baljeet's house and sees the portal to Mars they built for Baljeet. Candace walks inside, and at that same moment, the portal breaks.

Candace sees a Mars Rover and jumps in front of it, waving her arms to try to get attention. However, the man who watches the Mars Rover quits and shuts down the rover. Candace steps on it and a few Martians spot her destroying it. They meet her and bring her to their lair, crowning her the Queen of Mars. Candace gets excited and starts singing, calling a few Martians "good Stacy" and "good Jenny".

Phineas and Ferb finish fixing the portal and jump in to save Candace. They hear her singing and drive over to where she is. The Martians see their cart and begin bouncing on it, thinking it is another one of those Mars Rovers. Candace tells the Martians that even though she doesn't spend every single minute with them, it doesn't mean that she doesn't appreciate what they're doing for her, and jumps in the cart with Phineas and Ferb. The Martians become angry and join together to form an enormous Martian that chases Phineas, Ferb, and Candace.

Phineas uses Candace's cellphone to call Baljeet, asking him to open the portal now. Baljeet obeys and Phineas, Ferb, and Candace get out. Meanwhile, Doof fires his very first Inator for an old test and zaps the face of Candace on Mars just as Candace was about to reveal the face of her crowning achievement on Mars to Linda via her new telescope. It now looks like a Rhesus monkey wearing a powdered wig.

Sad and alone again, Candace's friends show up to meet her. Jenny had a dental appointment, Jeremy took Suzy to the movies, and Stacy asks if Candace ever got her text message. Candace admits she thought they were avoiding her only to lead an unknown guy to admit he was actually avoiding Candace. Candace asks if she knows him and he says it works perfectly and leaves behind a confused Candace, Jeremy, Stacy, and Jenny.

24 hours later, Dr. Doofenshmirtz gets sucked into the portal and meets the Martians, whom he sees carrying a crown. However, the Martians place the crown on a bicarbonate volcano next to Doofenshmirtz instead of him.


End CreditsEdit

24 hours later, Doofenshmirtz ends up in Mars and the Martians are about to crown him king, but instead, they crown the bicarbonate volcano. He is heard yelling, "Oh come on!!" during the logo.

Background InformationEdit

  • Produced during the Season 1 time period as the 42nd episode, but broadcast as the 47th episode for both Disney XD and Disney Channel US. The Disney XD premiere was on February 17, 2009 and the Disney Channel US premiere was on March 20, 2009.
  • This is a partner to the episode "Unfair Science Fair".
  • Previous titles for this episode were "Unfair Science Fair, The Return" and "Return to Science Fair".
  • Jenny, from "Lawn Gnome Beach Party of Terror" returns, and Candace states they haven't seen each other since then.
  • This is the first episode to focus on Candace without her friend Stacy.
  • Major Monogram, Carl the Intern, Perry the Platypus, and Dr. Doofenshmirtz meet in the grocery store without getting into a conflict. Major Monogram even moves in order to let Doofenshmirtz go on.
  • Ferb speaks a different dialect of Martian than the rest of the Martians do, but they are able to understand him. Ferb's line in Martian is his line in English played backwards. The Martians' language however, if played backwards, are not English sentences, but appear to be phonetic interpretations of English words backwards. See "Allusions", below for more information.
  • Candace, when she calls Jenny, states herself as Candy.
  • Someone has been trying to avoid Candace so well that he even refers to himself as "Unknown guy".
  • Episode description from a 2009 Disney XD Phineas and Ferb press release: [1]
Candace feels rejected by her friends, so she steps into Baljeet's science fair project which transports her to Mars, where she is worshipped by the Martians. Now it's up to Phineas and Ferb to bring Candace back down to earth.


  • The Portal momentarily connects with Earth's past in prehistoric times. A tyrannosaurus that is seen appears very similar to the one that chased Phineas, Ferb and Candace in "It's About Time!"
  • Before the man watching the Rover's progess is shouting about Mars, the beginning of Watching and Waiting from "Don't Even Blink" can be heard.
  • This is the second episode where Major Monogram appears, but has no lines. The first time he didn't speak is during "It's About Time!".


  • One of the statues the martians made looks like the Statue of Liberty.
  • When the Martians rebuild the Rover, they shout "Yensid" which is Disney spelt backwards. The Martians also say "Erimnevop," which is Povenmire spelled backwards.
  • The destroyed Candace face on Mars' surface looks like the Red Face, a well-known landmark on the planet's surface.
  • The owner of Taco Teepee is disparagingly called "Cooks with Grease" by the manager of Mr. Slushy Dawg, a reference to the character "Dances with Wolves" from the movie of the same name.

Memorable QuotesEdit

Unknown Guy: Unknown guy is out! Peace!

Candace: Queen Candace is out! Peace!

Candace: Candace Flynn is out! Peace!

Doofenshmirtz: Okay, I already got the chicken wire...

(Doofenshmirtz hands the list to Perry)
Doofenshmirtz: Here, you take the list and cross things off as we go along. Should we get something for later? Like one of those big pickles? Or a three bean salad?
(Doofenshmirtz's cart hits another, piloted by Major Monogram with Carl sitting in the child's seat; Major Monogram backs away slowly without saying anything)

Doofenshmirtz: Well...that was...awkward.

Candace: Ooh, I just got a text message, and it's from Stacy. CYL - BFF - S. What does that mean? Let's see... "Candace, you loser. Bad friendships fail. Stacy." Harsh!

Slushy Dawg manager: I'm looking for Jeremy, too. I need him to work tomorrow. Our fry guy just defected over to Taco Tepee. You win this one, Cooks with Grease!

Baljeet: Inside I am thanking you a thousand times, even though on the outside, I remain quite frugal.

Baljeet: Hey, look. It is us in the future fixing the portal.

Future Baljeet: Hello, Baljeet of the past. Just watch us. That is how we fixed the portal. Gesundheit!

Baljeet: Thanks. (sneezes)

Scientist: (screams) I CAN'T TAKE IT ANYMORE! I HAVE BEEN STARING AT RED ROCKS FOR TWENTY YEARS! (Candace is screaming at the rover calling for help but doesn't get any attention) THAT'S ALL THERE IS ON THAT STUPID PLANET! RED ROCKS! Face it...there's no life on Mars...THAT'S IT! I AM SHUTTING THIS PLACE DOWN! GAME OVER! (the rover is shut down)
Candace: Stupid rover! (starts breaking the rover) You're not gonna ignore me too! Take that, you ugly unmanned exploratory vehicle! (destroys the rover) Yeah, that's what I thought!

Stacy: Didn't you get my text? "Call you later, best friends forever, Stacy"?
Candace: (looking down at text) Oh... right.

Candace: So my friend want some time to themselves, huh? Well not without me they don't!
