Phineas and Ferb Wiki
Phineas and Ferb Wiki

Okay, I'll decide where we go on vacation as soon as I clean out Perry's litter box. Hey, how about Hawaii?

— Lawrence Fletcher

During a Hawaiian family vacation, Candace finds a cool lava rock necklace and is plagued with bad luck, so a native tells her she must take it to the top of a volcano, which spoils the cool, calm vibe she learned from a Hawaiian yoga instructor. Phineas and Ferb go with Candace and along the way, they ride a few waves with pro surfer Laird Hamilton. Meanwhile, Dr. Doofenshmirtz is also at the same volcano, trying to make the population less intelligent with his "De-Evolution-Inator."

Episode Summary

Part I

The Flynn-Fletcher family arrives in Hawaii for vacation. Linda and Lawrence are looking forward to the Annual Couple's Surfing Contest while Candace plans on relaxing and taking a "break" from trying to bust Phineas and Ferb. The family checks out the gift shop while Lawrence checks them into the hotel with the hotel manager. While the manager calls the bellhop to collect their bags, Perry the Platypus goes to a screen with Major Monogram for his briefing and we find out that Dr. Doofenshmirtz is the reason they went to Hawaii, thanks to Perry's subliminal message in his litter box. Monogram tells Perry to go get Doofenshmirtz whose somewhere on the big island and find out what he's up to... and get a hula wiggler for Carl who thinks it would be "neat." Browsing the gift shop, Candace buys some "Pineapple Serenity Lotion" and Phineas and Ferb buy some Aqua Primates, or "A-Primes" that are shown crowning the queen, fighting robots, and designing websites on the back of the box. Phineas then wonders where Perry went.

Perry flies into Pink Unicorn Island, which Doofenshmirtz explains that "Skull Island was booked." However, Pink Unicorn Island was cheaper, and he is able to keep the robe. Doofenshmirtz drapes a lei over Perry which quickly binds him, and explains that the reason he is on the island is that the mini volcanoes contain a primordial ooze which is needed for his De-Evolution-Inator. He plans to use it on the Tri-State Area and devolve everyone so he can take control.

Doing the "A-Prime Calypso".

Back at the hotel pool, Candace is able to relax with her serenity lotion while Phineas and Ferb are in their hotel room with their newly hatched A-Primes. Phineas notices how small they are and how they seem to be able to do only one trick, moving toward a light source. He thinks of how much better they could be human size, so he asks Ferb if there's any more of their growth elixir. They go down to the pool and after a quick rule check, dump the A-Primes in, where they grow to human size. Phineas and Ferb jump into the water and do the "A-Prime Calypso". Candace decides to take a yoga class. She covers herself with serenity lotion and while doing a standing back bend, she slips and falls backward into the pool, scaring the A-Primes out of the water. Phineas and Ferb follow them for their improbable creature wrangling time.

At Pink Unicorn Island, Doofenshmirtz shoos some cats away from his fish skeleton-shaped De-Evolution-Inator and attempts to activate it, after explaining its operation. Nothing happens. He climbs up to its lens and attempts to wipe away a smear, only to accidentally hit himself and Perry with the De-Evolution-Inator and they start fighting while randomly evolving and devolving.

The A-Primes run through the hotel and into an elevator, following closely behind are Phineas and Ferb. Candace runs in to follow and bust them but is stopped by the hotel manager whom Candace passes the "bust baton" to. The A-Primes are running amok through the hotel, still being chased by Phineas and Ferb until they are stopped by the Hotel Manager who chases the A-Primes instead.

Back on Pink Unicorn island, more random evolving and devolving is going on between Agent P and Doofenshmirtz. Candace is finally able to relax with the hotel manager doing her "job". Phineas watches the hotel manager chases the A-Primes from a window and wonders how they are going to round them up. Ferb calls room service and the hotel manager yells, "I'm going to call your mother!" and Candace, down by the pool, yells her number up to him. However, Linda and Lawrence are surfing and don't hear her phone ring so the hotel manager only gets a recording saying, "Hello, you've reached Linda Flynn-Fletcher, and if this is Candace, I'm sure that what ever the boys are doing, is nothing."

Perry finally gets back to normal and turns Doofenshmirtz into a single-celled organism. Phineas and Ferb get the giant flashlight they ordered from room service and use it to bring the A-Primes back. The hotel manager finds their parents and quickly tries to rush them over to see what their boys had done. Before Linda and Lawrence could see, the A-Primes are changes into humans from the De-Evolution-Inator which had shot into space and reflected off a satellite when Perry dumped it into the sea. The hotel manager is dumbfounded while Candace tells him, "Oh, dude, I know, right?"

Part II

Candace's tiki necklace.

Linda, Lawrence, Phineas, and Ferb are hula dancing and Candace made a sand sculpture of Jeremy that gets run over by a wave. Candace finds a "good" luck tiki charm.

Underwater, single-cell Doofenshmirtz is wondering who could've guessed that his De-Evolution-Inator would backfire on him, making other single-cell organisms raise their hands. Annoyed, he sees his De-Evolution-Inator. He goes into the molecular scale control panel and uses it to evolve back into his old self and swim back to an island.

Phineas and Ferb are looking through some wetsuits and compliment Candace about her tiki charm. She tells them it's her new good luck charm and asks them what they're up to. Phineas replies that they are going to try out some semi-aquatic endeavors, causing Candace to wonder where Perry went.

Perry, in his submarine, sees Monogram through the periscope and is told that they don't know the current location of Doofenshmirtz, but that the De-Evolution-Inator is likely on the island of Wa Ta Lot Ta Hoie. As Perry makes his way to the island, Doofenshmirtz uses the De-Evolution-Inator in reverse and hits himself so he has the most highly evolved brain on Earth, but his head is so big he can't get up.

Meanwhile, Candace has a montage of bad luck that she says "Could've been worse, good thing I had my good luck charm." She finally realizes that it's bad luck and tries to get rid of it, but it keeps coming back. A native tells her to take it to Wa Ta Lot Ta Hoie and throw it into the volcano. After ending up on a surfboard, she runs into Phineas, Ferb, and pro surfer Laird Hamilton. The four of them end up on shore and Candace, with a manta ray stuck to her head, tells Phineas and Ferb about the tiki charm and asks them to help her. Phineas throws it away and thinks its gone, but Laird gives it back to her. Candace tells them how to get rid of it for real. Phineas says alright, and that he knows what they're going to do today.

Perry's paradise.

Perry, after crashing his submarine, washes up on shore and is found by Doofenshmirtz. He traps Perry and tells him that he's supreme ruler of the Tri-Coconut Area with his crab minions who he eats if they disobey. Perry stares at the De-Evolution-Inator and Doofenshmirtz tells him that he disabled it because it did bad things to his head and he just kept it around for the crabs. As he wonders why the crabs like it so much, Perry escapes and runs away.

Phineas, Ferb, and Candace are going through the island and Candace has a lot of "Bad Luck". She gets a beehive stuck on her head, runs into a cliff, falls into mud, and ends up provoking bats and a large wild boar.

Doofenshmirtz separates the island between him and Perry with a line in the sand that they are not allowed to cross. He sees Perry has refreshments and asks for some, but Perry just stares at him. Doofenshmirtz asks if it's because of the line and tries to get rid of it but Perry just walks away. He then invents the Sand-Inator to get sand in people's trunks to irritate them. Perry doesn't seem to care because he doesn't wear trunks. Next, Doofenshmirtz attempts to look at the bright side that he may be starving and dying of thirst, but at least he has a hovel and that Perry probably has nothing since he wouldn't be able to build anything without opposable thumbs. But it turns out Perry has his own 'paradise' and had stolen Doofenshmirtz's minions.

"There you are, Perry."

Phineas, Ferb, and Candace are climbing up the volcano when Phineas suggests he and Ferb go up the volcano first, for safety's sake. Candace agrees and waits, wondering what is taking so long until she climbs up and sees the top of the volcano is just a restaurant. She's sees her parents and brothers who show her tons of tiki charms, which are actually table-ready markers. The same native who told her to go to the volcano greets her and notices that she had taken the long way when she could have just taken the escalator. He takes her tablе-ready marker and puts it in a 'volcano' where it says she wins a free dessert. Not wanting anything that the necklace brings to her, she leaves toward the escalator, allowing Laird Hamilton to take the free dessert instead. Candace slips on the escalator and is stuck flipping around endlessly on it.

Doofenshmirtz tells himself he has to get off the island and he need a BO-AT or "boat" which he is now told it's pronounced. He turns around and sees that Perry had built himself a boat and was loading coconuts onto it. He walks up to him and tells him they should work together to get off the island. He picks up one of the nets with coconuts in it and throws it on Perry, stealing the boat afterward. Monogram pops out of the sand unexpectedly and tells Perry that Agent W will take it from here. He also states that he found a tiki charm and that they might get a free dessert at the great restaurant on the other side of the island. Candace, still stuck on the escalator, sees Perry coming up. "Oh, there you are Perry."

End Credits

Doofenshmirtz was happy to escape the island, but it was short-lived when Agent W appeared and swallowed him. Inside Agent W, he tells the coconut and a pelican that he's the supreme ruler until the pelican bites his nose.

Running Gags

I know what we're gonna do today!

Phineas: What can we do to help?

Candace: We need to get to the top that volcano and throw it in.

Phineas: Alright then. I know what we're gonna do today!

The "Too Young" Line

Lawrence: I'll just do an old-school drop de-turn on them, eh? Cut back up on the face, through the sloop, do a nice inner tail, and drop into the green room for a bit of tune time.

Linda: You got that off the Internet, didn’t you?
Lawrence: Yes, yes I did.

Linda: Cowabunga!
Laird Hamilton: Say, aren't you dudes a little young to be riding this kinda surf?

Ferb: No worries, bro. We're just gonna hot dog this hunk of plastic bone up to the sand.
Phineas: You got that off the Internet, didn't you?

Ferb: Yes, yes I did.

Ferb's Line

Wahanies: Aloha!

Candace, Lawrence, Linda, Ferb and Phineas: Aloha!

Lawrence: I do hope that was hello.
Phineas: Wow, I've always wanted a vacation this close to a volcanic hot spot. Do you smell what I smell Ferb?
Ferb: (Sniffs) Hmm-mm, magma.
Phineas: How are we gonna round up the A-Primes?

Ferb picks up a phone.

Ferb: Hello? Room service?
Laird: Say, aren't you dudes a little young to be riding this kinda surf?

Ferb: No worries, bro. We're just gonna hot dog this hunk of plastic bone up to the sand.
Phineas: You got that off the Internet, didn't you?

Ferb: Yes, yes I did.

What'cha doin'?


Where's Perry?

Hotel Manager: Help desk, can we get a bell-person to pick up the family's bag and platypus? Oh hey, where's Perry?
Phineas: Hey, not to be redundant but... Where's Perry?
Candace: Speaking of semi-aquatic, where's Perry?

Oh, there you are, Perry

Candace: Aah! Ow! Oh, there you are, Perry.

Perry's entrance to his lair

In Part I, Perry gets his briefing through a screen on a Tiki statue. In Part II, Perry contacts Monogram on his trademark submarine in his periscope.

Out, Peace!

Single Guy: If this wasn't meant to be, someone give me a sign?

Candace: (Background voice) No, no, no, no, no! (Slams into the window)

Single Guy: Well that's good enough for me. This single guy is out, peace!
Candace: No way, I don't want anything that necklace brings me. Goodbye, good riddance, Candace is out, peace!


Doofenshmirtz: Being stranded on a deserted island is much easier with a normal sized head. Oh, I got something. ... It works! I found a platypus!

(Perry removes a crab from his fedora, then puts it on)

Doofenshmirtz: (gasps) Perry the Platypus!?!

Memorable Quotes

Lawrence: Oh, I can't wait to wipeout!

Linda: Dear, wipeout means falling off the board.
Lawrence: Yes, I know...
Candace: Well there's only one thing I'm saying hello-ha to! Relaxing! And taking a break from trying to bust Phineas and Ferb.
The rest of the family stares at her.

Candace: What? It's hard work!
Lawrence: Well, I am a little rusty on my Hawaiian, but here goes. Buenas dias, señor. Me llamo Lawrence. (Spanish for "Good day, sir. My name is Lawrence.")

Hotel Manager: Oh, no no. That's not necessary. We speak in English here. Hawaii is part of the United States.
Lawrence: Is it really? How remarkable. Well, we're the Flynn-Fletcher family. Two adults, three children, and our pet platypus, Perry.
Hotel Manager: Excellent; why don't you join your family and I'll call for a bell hopper to carry your bags.

Lawrence: Wonderful.
Candace: Hey, what's this? Pineapple scented serenity lotion with SPF. "Apply and feel instantly serene". Mom! I totally need the serenity lotion!
Hotel Manager: Stop right there young man! What is the meaning of this?
Phineas: Uh I'm not sure I understand your question.
Afer being hit by the De-evolution-inator, Doof somehow has a giant ear.
Big Eared Doof: Okay, this I don't even get.
Referring to the Hotel Manager
Phineas: Wow. For someone living in Hawaii, he's awfully stressed.
Dr. Doofenshmirtz: Oh, great. Now I'm a single-celled organism. Now how am I going to drive home?
Candace: Ooh, a good luck charm! (mysterious music plays and the tiki charm eyes glows) With its own theme music.
Doofenshmirtz: Who would've guessed my De-evolutionator would've backfired on me? (the other single-celled organisms raise their hands) Alright, put you pseudopods down!
Dr. Doofenshmirtz: It's strange that my underwear and socks evolved with me.
Candace: I'm cursed. Phineas, Ferb, I need your help getting rid of this tiki charm.

Phineas: Um, personally, I'd be a little more worried about that manray stuck to your head.

Candace: What? Ugh. You know, after the day I've been having, I didn't even notice.
Dr. Doofenshmirtz: Just because we're stranded on a desert island, doesn't mean we should abandon our normal lives, don't you think? Because then the Tiki gods would win!
Dr. Doofenshmirtz: (After seeing the crabs and parrots on Perry's side) Hey! Those are my minions! Traitors!

  • Phineas asks Ferb where's Perry, they didn't go back to see if Perry is still there.
  • All animals entering the state of Hawaii must undergo a period of quarantine. It is unlikely that Perry would have been allowed into the state at all. Though, since they went to Hawaii in the first place at Perry's sign, OWCA could have gotten him past the quarantine.
  • In Part II; after Candace slammed into a window where a couple was wondering if they should be together, the unknown man decided to break up with the unknown woman. During this scene, part of the unknown woman hand is missing.
  • In Part II; when Candace falls inside a water tub, she wears her trademark clothes, but when she resurfaces she wears her Hawaiian clothes.
  • During Bad Luck when Candace looks into the bat-infested cave, the "bad luck" charm is missing and when she was irritated on the bees, she talked but her mouth was still closed.
  • In Part II; when Candace was about to leave to go to the top of the volcano, the "bad luck" charm was not on its chain.

    Candace's "bad luck" charm was not on its chain.

  • In Part II; when Candace is about to pull herself up to see the top of the volcano, she is clean; however, when she pulls herself up and looks at the top of the volcano, she is dirty.
  • When Dr. Doofenshmirtz accidentally transforms himself into a single-celled organism, he is much bigger than a real single-celled organism, as real ones are supposed to be microscopic (thus cannot be seen with the naked eye), and the Doofenshmirtz microbe is about the same size as a goldfish, meaning he can be seen by the naked eye. Technically, it is possible that it was done so it would be easier to see him.
  • When Doofenshmirtz gets turned into a single-celled organism, he asks himself how he is going to drive home. The problem here is that Danville is on the mainland, so it is not possible to drive from there to Hawaii. Then again, he could have been driving underwater.
  • When Doofenshmirtz is transformed into a single cell organism he is not truly a single cell organism because he has eyes, a nose, a mouth, ears, hair and can talk.
  • The growth elixir from "Attack of the 50 Foot Sister" is said to work only once, and at the end of the episode, Doofenshmirtz used it on the entire universe. But in this episode, it works on the A-Primes. Then again, it could be a different growth elixir.
  • The Maori word "tiki" is not Hawaiian. All the islands of Polynesia have a distinct language, belief system, and culture. The correct term for the figure in this show should be the Hawaiian one, which is "ki'i".
  • Because the Hawaiian chain was formed by a "hot spot" and the movement of the plates, there should be only one island with a volcano, which is now on the Big Island. This is because the hot spot is still under that island and no other.
  • Wood materials won't be able to reflect sunlight.
  • Ferb states he smells magma, this is technically wrong because molten rock is called magma when in the Earth's core but is called lava outside.
  • The guy who sat on Candace was at the relaxation exercise but when Candace fell in the pool he was sitting on a bench.
  • Doofenshmirtz stated that there was a smear on the lens, but there never was any smear on the lens at all. Then again, it could be a very small smear.
  • When Doofenshmirtz is stranded on the island he grows facial hair, but he can't grow facial hair as stated in "Crack That Whip". However, it is possible that he changed that in his genetic code.
  • The waiter who drops the food on Candace inexplicably fall off to her despite he is seen safely lean on the railing.
  • When Candace is seen on the water tub, her hair is messed up, but when she says "No worries, I got my lucky charm on!", her hair turns back to normal.
  • In Part II, when Phineas and Ferb run around from behind a tree after a beehive falls onto Candace, Ferb's hair can be seen through the tree.
  • When Candace reaches the top of the volcano, Lawrence is wearing a green shirt with blue leaves. However, when the tiki is thrown into the volcano Lawrence is wearing a light blue shirt with blue leaves.
  • As Monogram shows Agent P the tiki charm, look closely and you can see his right hand has five fingers, when really it should have four.
  • In Part II; the string on the tiki snaps many time, then fixes itself.
  • When Doofenshmirtz is back in his human form, he is not completely naked. Though this may have been done on purpose because this is a kid's show.
  • After Candace says she wants to take a break from busting, the background changes when the camera zooms out.
  • Despite being a mammal, Perry's evolutionary stages include birds, a fly, and a ceratopsian. However, it's possible the De-Evolution-Inator simply transforms animals as well as alter their evolutionary stages.
  • Only one escalator is shown at the volcano's restaurant that went up, so how do the customers get back down?



  • This title is a parody of the 1980s film, National Lampoon's Vacation. It may also refer to The Brady Bunch's Hawaiian Vacation.
  • Pele's Curse - Candace getting a curse from the necklace she found that causing her to have bad luck. The idol is also a reference to the Brady Bunch's Hawaiian Vacation (right down to the identical "theme music") where Bobby finds an idol that brings him bad luck, but he initially thinks it's a good luck charm.
  • Peter Pan - When Doofenshmirtz is explaining to Perry why he was on Pink Unicorn Island, he says, "I wanted Skull Island right over there, but it was already booked ...." This is a reference to the island of the same name.
  • The Suite Life of Zack and Cody - Phill Lewis guest voiced as the Hotel Manager trying to stop Phineas and Ferb, the same way as Moseby, the character he plays in that series, trying to stop Zack and Cody. Ashley Tisdale and Caroline Rhea have also appeared in both series.
  • Castaway - Doofenshmirtz being stranded in the island, losing his body weight and having a coconut friend. This also happens in the Lilo & Stitch episode "Splodyhead".
  • The Lord of the Rings - Candace must take the cursed Charm and destroy it in the Wa Ta Lot Ta Hoie volcano, just as Frodo must destroy the One Ring in Mount Doom, as it must be "destroyed in the fires from which it was formed". This line, spoken by Candace, is also taken directly from the books.
  • Aqua Primates are a parody of Sea-Monkeys, a well-known novelty "pet"-raising activity/toy. (In reality, Sea-Monkeys are a species of brine shrimp.)
  • Scooby-Doo - Phineas and Ferb chase the Aqua Primates through multiple doors, parodying a motif often used in chase sequences on the series (complete with similar '70s-style music).
  • 2001: A Space Odyssey - The crabs worshiping the De-Evolution-Inator resembles the opening scene of this film, in which apes worship a mysterious monolith. Doofenshmirtz points out the "Kubricky" resemblance, in reference to the film's director Stanley Kubrick.
  • Finding Nemo - "Mount Wa Ta Lot Ta Hoie" is similar to "Mount Wannahockaloogie" from the Disney/Pixar film. (The name itself is meant to sound like "What a lot of hooie.")
  • Alvin and the Chipmunks - Once zapped into human form, the female child of the A-Primes is wearing the same dress as Brittany of The Chipettes.
  • Linda and Lawrence's dialog on the surfboard parodies beach movies popular in the 1960s.
  • The Little Mermaid - Doofenshmirtz becomes human under the sea and swims to the surface. The difference is that, while Princess Ariel was naked, Doofenshmirtz is wearing underwear and socks, and he comments on this. Also, "Prime Calypso" is a pastiche of the calypso-style "Under the Sea"_ sung by Sebastian the Crab.
  • Pippi Longstocking - A girl resembling Pippi is in the group of humans during A-Prime Calypso. The only difference is she's wearing a green bathing-suit.
  • The yoga instructor strongly resembles Jillian Michaels.
  • The crabs worshiping the De-Evolution-Inator might be a reference to a 2007 Super Bowl commercial in which crabs were worshiping a cooler filled with Budweiser.
  • Lilo & Stitch - The guy who lays on Candace when she's on the beach chair looks like the guy who drops his ice cream in Lilo & Stitch. The man has the same shades and swim suit as him. Also, Candace's Hawaiian outfit looks similar to one of Lilo's dresses. Lilo and Stitch also live in Hawaii.
  • Madagascar - There are two references to this movie in the episode:
    • When Doofenshmirtz builds a terrible little home and finds out that Perry's home is a paradise, is like when Alex finds that Marty's home is a little paradise.
    • Also Dr. Doofenshmirtz makes a line in the sand, and when he notices that Perry has refreshments, he erases it with his foot.
  • Pinocchio - The scene at the end of Part II Doofenshmirtz is in Agent W's body is similar to Geppetto being trapped inside Monstro.
  • Dr. Doofenshmirtz commenting on Perry's lack of swim trunks being a European thing where he builds the Sandinator is a joke at the nude beaches in Europe.
  • Mortal Kombat - When the coconut and tray falls on Candace in the hot tub, she somewhat resembles Kung Lao.
  • Charles Darwin - After explaining his De-evolution-inator, Doof says, "Isn't that just Darwin?", a reference to this British scientist who made his claim to fame in studying the theory of evolution.
  • South Park - Phineas and Ferb being disappointed that the sea monkeys are not as cool as they were advertised is similar to what happened to Eric Cartman in the episode "The Simpsons Already Did It".
