|“||I'd be devastated if something happened to him.||”|
— Phineas Flynn

Phineas and Ferb are sleeping, Phineas holding Perry under his arm. Perry goes over to Ferb's bed, but receives a signal saying "Code Red" on his spy watch. When Ferb realizes that Perry is gone, Perry replaces himself with a log to reassure him. Perry then goes downstairs to enter his lair, but meets Candace on the way, who hasn't been able to sleep after eating a peach and pumpernickel sandwich. He reverts to his domestic house-pet disguise as Candace trips over him. She throws him outside, angrily saying "For an animal that doesn't do much, you sure know how to make a mess of things!" After she leaves, Perry angrily mocks Candace before entering his lair.
Major Monogram tells Perry that he will be assigned to the Regurgitator, a new villain residing in the Quad-State Area while Dr. Doofenshmirtz has now been downgraded to a minor threat thanks to the Reguritator's recent evil activity. Major Monogram also tells Perry that he would also be assigned to a new family in the area as well. This doesn't suit Perry very well, realizing that he would have to leave the boys.
Meanwhile, in the morning, Phineas and Ferb talk to Candace about Perry, telling her that he is gone. Candace begins to feel guilty but does not tell them that she put him outside. Perry watches Phineas mourning his loss through the window, then flies off. As Perry flies past Dr. Doofenshmirtz's building. Dr. Doofenshmirtz, wearing a towel around his waist, reads a card attached to a gift basket, sent from The Agency to say that he has been downgraded to a minor threat thanks to the Regurgitator. This angers Dr. Doofenshmirtz, and he goes on his computer to research more about this "Regurgitator". Deciding to go back to being a major threat, Doofenshmirtz opts to confront the Regurgitator himself.
Phineas and Ferb create a device to summon all of the platypuses in the Tri-State Area, so they will be able to find Perry. However, after they use it, they find out that there are many more platypuses then they thought. They try to figure out which one is Perry.
In the meantime, Dr. Doofenshmirtz manages to track down the Regurgitator's location to a broken-down motel, which he finds out that it is a disguise for his lair. There, Dr. Doofenshmirtz realizes that the Regurgitator has already trapped Perry. The Regurgitator offers Dr. Doofenshmirtz a job as an intern, and he accepts due to maternity leave. As a start, the Regurgitator rudely orders Doof to make a pot of coffee. He also confesses that he plans to destroys Perry, which angers Heinz.
Meanwhile, the boys have checked through all the platypuses in the Tri-State Area, and none of them are Perry. Phineas then has a new idea, remembering how much Perry likes music. Candace, after failing her search for Perry, confesses to a shadowed Phineas and Ferb in a window that she was the one who put Perry outside the house at 3:38 A.M. When the lights come on, it reveals Marty the Rabbit Boy and his Musical Blender. Marty tries to cheer Candace up by playing Gitchee Gitchee Goo on his blender, but doesn't help. She then hears some music and goes to find out what's happening atop a building.
Perry helps Dr. Doofenshmirtz realize that he wants to be the main villain, not some intern. He tells the Regurgitator that he has had enough, listing all the things he's done. He also installed an activated self-destruct sequencer and an escape switch inside Perry's trap, as well as a pair of rocket boots. Upon learning of this, the Regurgitator attempts to kill Doofenshmirtz, but Perry, having heard of this, escapes and throws his water bowl to reverse the flow on the vacuum tube Doofenshmirtz entered by, causing the Regurgitator to be sucked through his lair's vacuum tube and fly all the way into the sky. Perry then uses the rocket boots to help himself and Doofenshmirtz escape from the lair before it explodes. Major Monogram then contact Perry, saying that they have the Regurgitator in custody (having landed in the Agency's jail) and that he goes back to his original host family in Danville. Upon hearing this, Doofenshmirtz realizes that they are both each other's nemesis again, causing Perry to drop him into a deserted plain. Fortunately for Doof, he lands on a throw pillow, much to his relief.
Candace arrives at the top of the building to find Phineas, Ferb, Isabella, and the Fireside Girls, among their other friends, singing Come Home Perry. Perry arrives, and they all hug him. Except for Candace, who just smiles and says "Welcome home." Buford grabs the microphone stand, and says to Candace "Good job, Larry".

The "Too Young" Line
He is seen snoring in the beginning of the episode.
Sings in Come Home Perry
Hey, where's Perry?
Phineas: Good morning, Candace.
Candace: What's so great about it?
Perry's entrance to his lair
Through the stepping-stones at the back door. The access code is a short version of his theme song.
Oh, there you are, Perry
Candace: (to Phineas) Well, maybe [Perry] just wandered off. Doesn't he always wander off in some point of the day? A-And later, when he comes back, you say, "Oh, there you are, Perry", and he says, (mimics Perry's chatter)
Candace: Oh, there you are, Perry.
Doofenshmirtz Evil Incorporated!
Candace: Ugh...no more peach and pumpernickel sandwiches before bed.
Candace: You have a pet beaver?
Woman: You have a pet platypus.
Phineas: Maybe we need to think bigger, and with music! Perry just loves music, remember?
(Flashback shows a chubby, yet very cute baby Perry and younger Phineas playing with a xylophone.)
Doofenshmirtz: Don't look at me like that, Perry the Platypus. I know what you're thinking. I-I'm not some lowly intern. I'm an evil scientist! I'm Heinz Doofenshmirtz, and he should be bowing down to me! (at the Regurgitator) Hey you, Mr. Regurgitator! Let's get things straight!
The Regurgitator: What?
Dr. Doofenshmirtz: We did it! We did it! ¡Lo hicimos! We did it!
Dr. Doofenshmirtz: So if we're enemies again, does that mean...
Perry drops Doofenshmirtz, who tumbles and stops at a throw pillow
Candace: ♪♪ I'm gonna move to the prairie,
And change my name to Larry ♪♪
- Perry's supper bowl is a different color than in "Jerk De Soleil".
- In addition to proving beyond a shadow of a doubt that Perry loves his host family, this episode also proves that Agent P is a valuable agent in the agency. His assignment as Doofenshmirtz's nemesis is changed because the O.W.C.A. doesn't need to waste Perry's talents on watching a mere "minor threat." It also suggests that Perry never arrests Doofenshmirtz so that he can stay with his family. ("Jailhouse Doof")
- At the end of "Come Home Perry" when Perry shows up, a group of kids come to hug the found Perry. But in the group, Isabella hugs Phineas instead of Perry, Baljeet appears to hugs Ferb, but his arm is shown to extend to Perry, he is hugged by Milly and Katie, who are dragged off by holding onto Baljeet. Holly and Ginger chase after them all.
- Jeremy plays the tambourine on the roof; he has no other involvement in the plot outside of this.
- During "Come Home, Perry", all the clouds look like Perry.
- Linda was absent in this episode.
- One can see one of Perry's reaction towards Candace by imitating her behind her back.
- The Quad-State Area could be around four corners in Utah, Arizona, New Mexico, and Colorado, because of its desert-like appearance.

- One of the rappers that sang "S.I.M.P. (Squirrels In My Pants)" can be seen in the crowd during "Come Home Perry".
- Candace makes a chattering sound like Perry as she did when imitating Perry ("Does This Duckbill Make Me Look Fat?"). She is the first of three people, the others being Phineas and Ferb ("Interview With a Platypus"), to do so, and so far the only one to do it in more than one day. She also makes a face that is similar to Perry's when he is in "pet mode."
- The music in Come Home, Perry is similar to that used in "A-G-L-E-T" ("Tip of the Day").
- Balthazar appears during the song.
- In most foreign language dubs, like the Russian dub, for example, the sound used on the device to find Perry is Perry's chatter from the original English version.
- Baljeet plays the drums in this episode when he usually plays the keys. Buford, who plays cowbell, would later regularly be seen as the drummer.

- Doofenshmirtz said he installed an escape button in Perry's cage but it isn't shown in the trap.
- In the song, Phineas mentions that Perry is the color of a blueberry, yet in Does This Duckbill Make Me Look Fat?, Candace asks why her hand is green after switching brains with Perry.
- Right after Candace sings that she'll change her name to Larry, the crowd sings Larry one time. They sing it a second time when Phineas is shown, and Phineas's voice can be heard, but he's smiling, not singing.
- Ferb can be seen singing, but has no voice.
- After singing along together with the other Fireside Girls, Adyson is nowhere to be seen again.
- During most of the episode when viewed on iTunes, if you look closely you can see a column on the left edge of the screen is lined out.
- Candace encounters Marty the Rabbit Boy and his musical blender in a store for the second time. He tries to cheer her up by playing "Gitchee Gitchee Goo" on his musical blender ("Flop Starz").
- When Dr. Doofenshmirtz finds a basket outside his door, he says, "Another Gift Basket?". He could be referring to the time when Perry brought him a gift basket for 'defecting to the good side'. ("Voyage to the Bottom of Buford")
- In the song, Candace says she's allergic to dairy ("Candace Loses Her Head", "Let's Take a Quiz").
- Lassie Come Home - The story is similar to this 1943 film. Also, the song "Come Home Perry" has a similar title.

- Heavy Metal - The Regurgitator has a scary resemblance to Hanover Fiste from the "Captain Sternn" segment.
- SpongeBob SquarePants - The theme of the episode and the name of the song bear a very slight resemblance to the episode "Have You Seen This Snail?". Also, the song "Come Home, Perry" rhymes with the song "Come Home, Gary" from the same episode, "Have You Seen This Snail?", although this is likely a coincidence
- The Beatles - The song takes place on a rooftop, much like the Beatles' last concert in 1969, even the guitar that Phineas uses is the same as the Epiphone Casino that John Lennon used in this concert. However, none of the other instruments are the same.
- U2 - Where The Streets Have No Name - The rooftop concert is similar to the video by U2. The song styles are also musically similar.
- Frankie Valli - The melody of Come Home, Perry sounds very similar to the Four Seasons' 1962 hit Sherry (Can You Come Out Tonight?), especially the chorus.
- Pachelbel's Canon - The bass line of "Come Home Perry" is based on Johan Pachelbel's Canon and Gigue for 3 violins and basso continuo.
- Dora the Explorer - At the end, when Doofenshmirtz is yelling, “We did it! We did it! Lo Hicimos we did it!” he says lo hicimos, and that is a reference to the end song of Dora the Explorer (We did it! We did it! Yeah, lo hicimos, we did it!).
- This is the first time Phineas and Ferb worry about Perry when he goes missing because he left in the middle of the night. He's always home in the morning.
- This is the second episode with Perry's name in the title.
- This is the second time Isabella doesn't speak, but is heard singing in the song ("Mom's Birthday").
