Launch Pad
After watching a sci-fi movie marathon, Candace becomes convinced that Ferb is an alien, but it's revealed that Phineas and Ferb built a spacecraft for Garbog, an actual alien friend of Meap's.

The launch pad that Phineas and Ferb made was wrapped up in a nice little bow, because it was shot by Doofenshmirtz's Wrapped Up in a Nice Little Bow Inator.

The Linda robot controlled by Garbog disappears after he flies off.

In the end, Ferb is not an alien, and there are logical explanations for all of her proof. For example, Candace thought she saw Ferb's head floating in liquid in a jar, but the jar only contained the liquid and Ferb was standing behind it; and when Candace thought she saw Ferb's head ripped off, but she had mistaken him for a cord in a tent.
