Vanessa tries to get her dad, Dr. Doofenshmirtz, a capsule containing a rare chemical at the mall in order to convince him that she's responsible enough to have her own car. Even with Ferb helping her, what initially seems an easy task becomes complicated when Candace, Stacy, Buford, Baljeet and Perry also want the capsule for different reasons.

Episode SummaryEdit

Vanessa finds it uncomfortable that her dad is still taking her around on his scooter. Dr. Doofenshmirtz arrives at the mall with a really long shopping list. Among the items he needs is a capsule of Pizzazium Infinionite, an extremely rare element (but oddly, commercially viable), the uses of which are currently unknown. Much to the doctor's frustration, the last capsule of pizzazium has been taken by someone else right under his nose. It is later revealed that Baljeet has the capsule which he needs for his science project, with Buford acting as an "angry wall of meat" to protect it. Vanessa persuades her dad to let her have her own car if she succeeds in retrieving the capsule. Reluctantly, the doctor gives her a pizzazium-locator to aid her in the search.

Mrs. Flynn drives Phineas, Ferb, Candace, Stacy and Perry to the Superduper Mega Superstore. While Mrs. Flynn goes shopping, Candace wants to find the perfect present for Jeremy. Buford carelessly drops the capsule into Candace's hands, which Candace mistakes for a lantern, and keeps it.

After being left alone at the "Park Your Pooch" area, Perry receives a call from Major Monogram, who informs Perry that Dr. Doofenshmirtz is present at the mall. As there are many of Perry's acquaintances around, he puts on a sporty Hawaiian shirt, sunglasses, shoes and remains undetected throughout the caper. Perry overhears the conversation between Vanessa and Dr. Doofenshmirtz about the capsule of pizzazium, steals it from Candace only to drop it later when he bumps into Dr. Doofenshmirtz. The doctor asks him if they have met before. Ferb is reading when he sees Vanessa approaching the capsule, which has ended up behind his chair. He pushes her out of the aisle, narrowly missing Buford and Baljeet riding a cart who regain the capsule.They then cut to Buford and Baljeet who have it but Buford accidentally drops it and it goes into a ventilation system, finally ending up in a ball-pit where Vanessa looks for it.Ferb helps her get it and she discovers his name is Ferb. She thanks him then runs off. Candace and Stacy chase after the capsule wearing helmets and roller-blades. Dr. Doofenshmirtz accidentally activates a lawnmower, which joins the party in a humorous and noisy chase all around the mall. Ferb and Vanessa cooperate smoothly, both displaying impressive acrobatic skills. Perry enters a ball launcher, successfully catches up with the others and temporarily gets hold of the capsule before bumping into Dr. Doofenshmirtz once more. Candace, Stacy, Buford and Baljeet end up crashing into a line of shelves; it is here that Stacy discovers there is a card in the store about "a spilled cheeze dog with mustard." Vanessa swings down the ground floor on a rope of lanterns. She grabs the capsule, but the rope she uses gets caught in the rampaging lawnmower which is stuck at the top of an escalator. The lawnmower is slowly pulling her up the escalator when Ferb swings to her rescue on a fishing rod. Ferb cuts the rope and swiftly disassembles the mower with a Swiss army knife. Ferb uses the ball launcher to send the capsule flying across the mall, landing near the entrance. As Dr. Doofenshmirtz gleefully picks it up, Perry pulls a detector towards the doctor and the alarm goes off, as the capsule hasn't been paid for. Dr. Doofenshmirtz is accused of shoplifting and dragged away by the security guards.

End CreditsEdit

The end credits begin with Candace and Stacy being surprised when they see Linda with a shopping cart full of potatoes and mayonnaise. Vanessa, after seeing her father being taken away by the guards, realizes that she's probably going to have to wait to get a car and goes to get her dad out of trouble. Before she leaves, she gives Ferb a kiss on the cheek. Then Phineas, who is still a little shaky from being in the massage chair too long, shows up, wondering what happened while he was gone.

Running Gags Edit

The "Too Young" LineEdit

Linda: Ferb, honey, aren't you a little old to be playing in a ball-pit?
Ferb: Yes, yes, I am.

Ferb's LinesEdit

Ferb: (whistle)

Phineas: You can whistle that again.

Ferb: (whistle)

Linda: Ferb, honey, aren't you a little old to be playing in a ball-pit?

Ferb: Yes, yes I am.
Linda: Okay, then.
Vanessa: (Coming out of the ball-pit) Your name is Ferb?
Ferb: Well, yes. It's short for - Oh, here it is.

Vanessa: Thanks Ferb, see ya around.

Perry's entrance to his lairEdit

Perry does not go to his lair. Instead, one of the dog spits out a bone with a small screen on the side. Major Monogram then appears on the screen. Carl claims that the bone communicator is his idea.

Memorable Quotes Edit

Linda: I need a 25 lbs. tub of mayonaise, and 80 lbs. of potatoes to make potato salad for the bridge club.
Phineas: Wow. That's a lot of potato salad.

Phineas: Just think, Ferb, 52,637,000 acres of unbridled consumerism all under one roof.

After Carl the Intern mentions that he thought of the Dog Bone Communicator
Major Monogram: Carl! I'm trying to use the bone!

Baljeet: As a person of superior intellect, I require an angry wall of meat to protect my science project.

Vanessa: There must be an easier way to earn a car.

Heinz: You know what they say about taking the easy way...
Vanessa: (exasperated) What do they say?

Heinz: Well, I could tell you, but that would be the easy way, and you know what they say about that.

Phineas: Ferb, you gotta try this chair, I can't feel my brain.

Stacy: Check it out! They do make a card for a spilled cheese dog with mustard.

Phineas: My fingers look just like snakes!

Stacy: You can't expect the perfect gift to just fall out of the sky.

Candace: It's perfect! It's all futuristic-y, and cool, and it dropped out of the sky!

Stacy: Well, I guess I stand corrected.

Vanessa: Well, time to go see where they dragged Dad off to.

Phineas: Did I miss something? (Ferb stops him from shaking) Thanks Ferb.

Background InformationEdit

  • Ferb's name is revealed to be short for another name. The man he is named after in real life's birth name is Frank, so it is likely it's the same for Ferb. [1]
  • This is one of the few episodes in which Phineas and Ferb do not have any project, Phineas remains largely inactive throughout the episode.
  • Candace does not try to bust her brothers in this episode.
  • The episode further showcases Ferb's crush on Vanessa, which has only been mentioned briefly in "I Scream, You Scream" and "The Chronicles of Meap".
  • This is the second time Vanessa sings (the first time occurs in "I Scream, You Scream").
  • Isabella and Jeremy are absent in this episode. However, Jeremy is mentioned.
  • This marks the first time Ferb has more screen time than Phineas, despite having a few lines.
  • This episode focus more on Dr. Doofenshmirtz, Vanessa and Ferb.
  • First episode that Phineas isn't the main character.
  • First episode in which Doofensmirtz gets arrested.
  • Buford is the second character to refer himself in third person by saying "Buford hungry".
  • The logo of the Park Your Pooch pet stop resembles Augie Doggie
  • The Pizzazium Infinionite was discovered in 1894, which was 50 years prior to when the documentary film was made. This places the creation of the film in 1944.
  • The periodic table shown in the film has elements listed up to 114. At the time of the film, it should have only had about 104 elements.
  • Pizzazium Infinionite is shown as element number 104, the element number currently used for Rutherfordium. It also has an average atomic weight of 261.
  • The "Kronk for Hire" cue plays during the film about Pizzazium Infinionite.
  • At the beginning of the episode, Phineas is sitting in the passenger seat of Linda's car. In America, kids must be at least 4'10" and 12 or older to ride in the front seat. This could indicate that Phineas and Ferb are around 12 years old.


  • Perry crashes in Dr. Doofenshmirtz. The doctor does not recognize Perry, saying, "You look fabulous!", then the song "You're Fabulous" from the episode "Dude, We're Getting the Band Back Together" is briefly played. Previously, a longer piece of the song can be heard when Perry walks out of the changing room and a guy in the mall compliments Perry's clothes.
  • At the beginning of the episode, when a biker attempts to flirt with Vanessa, Dr. Doofenshmirtz uses the Away-inator mounted on his helmet to send the biker to another world to be knocked flat by an alien child, like he does in "It's a Mud, Mud, Mud, Mud World."
  • When Ferb whistles, it can be heard a bit, instrumental version from Let's Take a Rocket Ship to Space.
  • Monogram says "I am trying to use the bone!" similar to in Rollercoaster when Candace "Keep it down, I am trying to use the phone!" and to The Monster of Phineas-n-Ferbenstein when Constance says "I am trying to use the quill!"
  • When Phineas says "Did I miss something?" it could be a nod to "Traffic Cam Caper" when Perry in a Ferb suit flies away and the real Ferb shows up, saying, "What did I miss?" ("Traffic Cam Caper")
  • Ferb's yellow umbrella from "Attack Of The 50 Foot Sister!" reappears during the song "I'm Me".


  • Necessary Roughness: Episode title reference.
  • Indiana Jones (Raiders of the Lost Ark): Ferb wears an Indy-esque fedora and swings into action with a fishing rod, much like Indiana Jones using his whip. After Ferb saves Vanessa, she says, "Well Ferb, you certainly know how to show a girl a good time," which is an allusion to the line "Well Jones, looks like you haven't forgotten to show a lady a good time!" in Raiders of the Lost Ark.
  • Final Destination: Vanessa nearly getting killed with the lawn mower until Ferb intervened like the series (in book, comic, and movie)
  • Love Actually: Sam, portrayed by Thomas Sangster, the voice actor for Ferb, has a crush on Joanna, portrayed by Olivia Olson, the voice actress for Vanessa.
