From this moment on, I am no longer your nerd!

— Baljeet

After Baljeet announces that he is no longer Buford's nerd, a heartbroken Buford accepts Dr. Doofenshmirtz's proposal to help win over the Tri-State Area. The new partnership causes a problem for Perry since he can't reveal himself as Agent P to Doofenshmirtz without Buford seeing him. Meanwhile, over at the Flynn-Fletcher house, Baljeet is thrilled with the freedom to live his own life. With all his new-found energy, he enlists the boys to help him climb Danville Mountain.

Episode Summary

At a local store, Baljeet is at the cashier buying new underwear because Buford wedgied all of his other underwear. Buford suddenly comes up behind him, and after giving him a wedgie demands that he pays for his Tuff Gum and a cheese grater. Baljeet wonders how Buford always seems to be able to find him, and Buford informs him that he has installed a G.P.S. tracker on Baljeet. The store clerk asks if Buford wants a paper or plastic bag, and Buford chooses plastic. Baljeet becomes enraged by his choice (among other things) and declares he is no longer Buford's nerd, storming off. Buford blames the store clerk for this, who is intimidated by Buford. Dr. Doofenshmirtz overhears and decides to enlist Buford to help him take over the Tri-State Area.

Baljeet happily skips into Phineas and Ferb's backyard, exclaiming to them and Isabella that he has boundless energy since ceasing to be Buford's nerd, and wishes to use this new-found energy to literally climb a mountain. Phineas suggests that they make one for him, but Baljeet wants to climb the real thing: Danville Mountain.

Meanwhile, Doofenshmirtz waits in line with his new assistant to get a lab coat from the dry cleaners, since one of his others had scorch marks on it. Buford knocks down the line so that Doofenshmirtz may move to the front; though the clerk isn't happy about it, and tells them to wait. Buford then threatens to spill the clerk's coffee all over the clean lab coats, intimidating him. The clerk hands over Doofenshmirtz's lab coat and the two of them leave. Buford continues to make Doofenshmirtz's daily life easier by intimidating others into submission, and Agent P is unable to intrude due to Buford's presence.

At the bottom of the mountain, Baljeet contemplates the enormity of what he is planning to do. Phineas suggests that he and Ferb build him some "mega-pants" with hydraulics in them to make the climb easier, but Baljeet declines, saying he wants to do it without any help. Phineas is displeased by this, clearly itching to build something. They come across a thin rope bridge across a gorge, which Baljeet also tackles naturally, even using it as a vine after it snaps to swing the others across, to Phineas's disdain.

At Doofenshmirtz Evil Inc. Doofenshmirtz explains to Buford that he plans to use his Sculpt-Inator to sculpt Danville Mountain into a muscular statue of himself. Doofenshmirtz also presents Buford with matching outfits and jet-packs for them, and Buford states that he can't wait to show them off to his friends; though Doofenshmirtz tells him that he will no longer have any need for them. Agent P watches the two uncomfortably from a distance.

As Baljeet and the others climb the mountain, a hysterical Phineas continues to desperately suggest countless project ideas they could build, but is again rejected. The gang reaches the top of the mountain, and Baljeet realizes how much he misses Buford. Phineas is finally given permission to build something, which he does frantically. Ferb then says how he too was ready to explode from being deprived of building.

Buford decides to quit being Doofenshmirtz's assistant so he can go find Baljeet, and shoots off on his jet-pack, allowing Agent P to finally reveal himself and thwart Doofenshmirtz. The Sculpt-Inator sculpts Doofenshmirtz's face just as he is being attacked, capturing his "bad side" and shoots the mountain with it.

Phineas and Ferb's new ice chalet rests on the nose of Doofenshmirtz's face on the newly sculpted mountain, where Phineas begins to calm down. Buford arrives and is greeted by Baljeet giving him a wedgie. Everyone then uses his extended underwear as a parachute just as the disfigured mountain begins to collapse. As they escape, Perry uses the Sculpt-inator to turn the mountain back to normal, and the inator explodes as usual.

As the gang arrives in the backyard, Buford finally removes the G.P.S. tracker button from Baljeet's overalls, causing them to fall down.

Oh, there you are, Perry

Memorable Quotes

Baljeet: Buford, how did you find me?
Buford: (Holds up tracking system monitor) Let's just say the initials were "G", "P" and "S".
Baljeet: My quest lies ahead of me like an unpeeled potato.
Major Monogram: You know, I once put in a request for some muscle. Got Carl.

Carl: And how many attacks since I came on board?
Major Monogram: Well, none, but come on, you could at least look the part. You look like a kindergarten crossing guard.

Carl: No need to be hurtful, sir.
Doofenshmirtz: After all these years, would've thought that all I need to destroy the Tri-State Area was a grammar-school goon. A ham-handed halfpint. A knee-high ne'er-do-well. A pint-size palooka. A pushy prepubescent.

Buford: Are you done?

Doofenshmirtz: Nah, hold on, I've got one more. A pipsqueak pugilist. Okay, now I'm done.
Buford: Dude, what's with the playset?

Doofenshmirtz: Playset? No, no, this is a model of the Tri-State Area.
Buford: So, you play with dolls?

Doofenshmirtz: Maybe... But they help me visualize my evil schemes. They don't always have to require dolls.
The kids reach the top of Danville mountain.

Isabella: Okay, that's enough triumph for one day, are we done here Baljeet?
Baljeet: Yes...
Isabella: Phineas go!

Phineas: ICE CHALET!
Buford: I just don't know what to do. There's a nerd-shaped hole in my heart. There's a nerd-shaped hole...

Baljeet: A bully-sized hole...
Both: A big, honkin' hole in my heart!

Doofenshmirtz: Wait a second! You're singing?! I-I know what this means! You're leaving, aren't you?
Phineas: Okay we got to melt out the inside.

Isabella: You know, you really ought to pace yourself.
Phineas: Mudroom first. Ferb start carving the bearskin rug.

Isabella: You're gonna get The Bends or something.
Baljeet: (after giving Buford a wedgie) Well, I feel so much better. Do not you?
Buford: Wow, I had no idea this was so painful. I am so sorry.
Buford: (while the rest of the gang dangles from his underpants) Do you ever get used to this?

Baljeet: Nope.

Isabella: I'm totally gonna wash my hands after this. Twice.
Doofenshmirtz: Curse you, Perry the Platypus. Whatever.
Baljeet: I am sorry for my outburst earlier.

Buford: No, I'm sorry for putting the GPS on you; Consider it gone!
Buford pulls off one of Baljeet's overall buttons and they fall down.
Baljeet: Oh yes, this is much less humiliating.
Buford: Don't worry, I'll get the duct tape.

Baljeet: He meant on my pants, right?

  • When Buford removes the GPS tracking chip from Baljeet's overalls, it is on the wrong side.
  • When Buford put the bag of Tuff Gum on the counter, the pack was blue. Then when the cashier said the price, the pack of Tuff Gum turned tan and never turned blue again.
  • When Buford says he will spit on Baljeet's house on Doofenshmirtz's non-scale model of the Tri-State Area, he drools, not spits.
  • As Baljeet points at the mountain, his head grows bigger but in the next scene, his head became normal.
  • When Baljeet looked over to Danville, there is no sign on Doofenshmirtz Evil Incorporated.
  • When Buford rips "A nerd shaped hole" in his shirt, it is gone in the next scene.
  • When Doofenshmirtz is holding up Buford's matching jacket, Doofenshmirtz Evil Incorporated can be seen in the background, even though they are there.

  • When the inator shoots Doofenshmirtz, only his face was carved into the mountain, not his whole body.
  • During almost the entire episode, the skull on Buford's shirt is a darker shade of gray. Its unknown if this was intentional or not, due to the fact that it would be very unlikely that a mistake could run for an entire episode. When it was light gray, the eyes of the skull were red, not black.

  • At the end of the episode, when the -inator shoot the mountain the second time, the mountain was sculpted, but when the boys jump over the mountain it felt down.

  • Sidekick - The scene where Baljeet breaks up with Buford is very similar to Eric dumping Trevor as his best friend.
  • Inspector Gadget - After defeating Dr. Doofenshmirtz, Perry deploys a helicopter out of his hat much like Inspector Gadget's own helicopter hat.
