Phineas and Ferb Wiki

Phineas, Ferb, Mom put me on noise patrol while she's taking her online test, she needs there to be absolutely quiet!

— Candace Flynn

After Mom asks the kids to keep quiet while she prepares for her online knitting test, Phineas and Ferb create ninja outfits designed to hide the wearer from anyone who is not wearing them. Meanwhile, Candace becomes increasingly frustrated after she can’t find the boys and bust them. Across town, Dr. Doofenshmirtz invents the De-Handsome-Inator.

Episode Summary

Phineas, Ferb and their friends are playing a "robot attack" game with Buford's robot suit, but he trips over a lamp. Linda tells Candace that she wants everyone to be quiet while she is taking her online knitting test, and is leaving Candace in charge. Candace tells the boys to be "quiet and invisible", giving Phineas the idea to make ninja suits.

Major Monogram tells Perry that Doofenshmirtz has been drawing ugly pictures onto handsome men on magazine covers, including one of Major Monogram, and is probably plotting something. After Perry leaves, Monogram begins to cry and ask why Doofenshmirtz did this to his photo. At Doofenshmirtz Evil Inc., Perry gets trapped in a giant apple. Doofenshmirtz says that the men on magazine covers are "mocking him", so he invented the De-Handsome-Inator to make them hideous. Perry somehow escapes and attacks Doofenshmirtz, who tries to swat him with the magazine. He hits the switch on the inator, changing the setting to handsome, and it zaps himself and makes himself handsome. He of course doesn't know he is handsome, so just leaves to get lunch with Perry.

Phineas, Ferb and their friends have their ninja suits on, and when Candace walks out, they activate them, and the suits hide themselves from Candace.

In the living room, Candace can't see them, but can still feel their presence, so she looks around for them. Phineas, still avoiding her, tells her to put on her suit, and she can see them, so Candace goes to do so.

Everyone is giving Doofenshmirtz things and helping him, and all the girls like him. At lunch, the waiters give Doofenshmirtz and Perry whatever they want, and someone takes a picture of Doofenshmirtz. He sees the framed picture and thinks it got mixed up, but then Perry shows him a mirror.

As they were leaving the diner, Doofenshmirtz was complaining about disliking everything, though he was handsome. Then, he explains to Perry how handsome people are given whatever the want, when or wherever they want it. Just to prove a point Heinz compliments a womans baby, the woman offers to give the baby to him, claiming it likes him more than her. Quickly, Doofenshmirtz refuses to accept the baby.

Back at home, Candace was wearing her ninja suit and tries to show her mom, but she was still busy taking her knitting test. Each time Linda turned around to see what Candace was going on about, the costume caused her to move to another location. Finally, Candace takes the costume off, but the costume jumps out the window before Linda looks.

Meanwhile, the citizens were still oogling over Heinz. Just then, his brother, Rodger, is very impressed that Doofenshmirtz has finally grown into his looks at age 47. He is about to crown him leader of the Tri-State Area, and Perry tries to shoot Doofenshmirtz with the De-Handsome-Inator, but commemorative balloons shaped like Doofenshmirtz get in his way.

The kids take off their suits, and see Candace's suit behind the tree. They realize she still had it activated, making it hide from anyone who did not have the suits on. Candace pushes Linda's chair out of the den to show her the suits.

Perry comes up to City Hall with Doofenshmirtz' remote. Doofenshmirtz doesn't care, because of the balloons. But Perry shoots anyway. It bounces off a mirror taped to a balloon, one taped to a building, the windows of six cars, and a mirror taped to a pigeon flying over City Hall. It hits Doofenshmirtz, turning him back to his ugly self.

The kids activate their suits to put them away. The suits run away and hide before Linda sees them. The Inator bounces off the mirrors and hits itself. It hits Buford, and then blows up. Ferb mentions that Buford looks handsome, and Buford says it's a blessing and a curse.

Background Information

  • The De-Handsome-Inator in reverse produced a similar effect to cutonium in that it made Doofenshmirtz so handsome no one could resist his handsomeness (except for Perry, but this could simply be because he is a Platypus and not a human).

  • Before Linda types the answer to the question to what you call a clever knitter, the whole answer simply appears in the answer box right when she says it, without even typing it in.
  • When the screen first shows the question "What do you call a clever knitter", there is a ball of yarn shown to the right of the question on the screen. However, when Candace is trying to show her mom the ninja outfit, it has a pink scarf on the right side of the question. In the very next shot, it changes back into a ball of yarn. Then, after a couple of shots, it turns back into a pink scarf.
  • In the scene that Roger Doofenshmirtz is giving Heinz the speech "You have finally grown into your looks", the top stripe on his tie changes directions.
  • When Doofenshmirtz gets his picture taken in the cafe, he has a surprised look on his face. In the picture he is handed, he looks confused.
  • Linda would've failed the knitting test, due to constant Candace interruptions and getting dragged away from the computer.
  • The same two questions appear on Linda's test instead of changing.
  • When Buford is chasing the others in his robot costume, one scene doesn't show his neck showing.
  • When the gang is seen hiding from Candace in the living room, Phineas' head is not attached with his body when he is climbing on the ceiling.
  • At the beginning when everyone is running, only Isabella is heard screaming despite everyone's mouths are open.
  • When Doofenshmirtz tries to blast Perry, the crowd is still there, but they all went to go read fashion magazines in the previous scene.
  • During the song I'm Handsome, during the line "My hair is wavy..." a woman in the background can be seen fainting over her windowsill. During the line "Take a picture..." she is seen fainting again the same way with the same awning that was near her, but coming in from a different direction. This is most likely due to the fact that Doofenshmirtz was animated separately, and they flipped the background to make it look different.
  • When Candace presses the remote to turn the TV on, the screen on the TV just gets darker.
  • In the hallway, Candace's room can be seen next to Phineas and Ferb's room, when it should be directly across from it. This error was also seen in "Phineas and Ferb Christmas Vacation!".
  • When the ninja suits are first seen folded they're outlined in red instead of each kid's respective color.
  • When Candace brings Linda out, Isabella is smiling, but whenever the camera zooms in on Linda Isabella is frowning, and her standing gesture is different.
  • Right when Candace brings Linda into the backyard, part of her hair goes over her shirt. Also at the same time, there are leaves in the place where the ninja suits were, but when Linda offers pie the leaves are gone. One leaf also overlaps a leg on Linda's chair.
  • When Linda says "this test is time sensitive" Candace's head outlines turn red like her suit.
  • The kids' ninja outfits are designed to hold tight against their heads so it appears they have no hair. However, Candace's suit is designed so it has the same shape as her hair.
  • When first seen, the commemorative hot air balloons have passengers but later, when seen from Roger and Heinz point of view, none have passengers.
  • The room that Linda comes out of to tell Candace to keep quiet was actually the bathroom, as revealed in "Mom's in the House".
  • Right as "I'm Handsome" ends and Doofenshmirtz walks up the stairs, the middle of the crowd is a copy of the front half.


  • The picture near the bathroom with Phineas and Ferb holding Perry and young Candace is seen again. ("Mom's in the House")
  • Second time Doofenshmirtz is referred to as ugly ("Best Lazy Day Ever"). He also makes his first ugly invention in that same episode.


  • The Simpsons and SpongeBob SquarePants - The episode is a bit similar to "Pygmoelian" and "The Two Faces of Squidward" respectively.
  • Spider Man - When Candace announces that "My busting sense is tingling", it is similar to Spider-Man's motto "My spider senses are tingling."
  • Seinfeld - When the restaurant puts lobster in Doofenshmirtz's eggs, it's like when George put lobster in the eggs.
  • Bob the Builder - After Doof stops being handsome, one of the guys in the front row looks similar to Bob.
  • Fairest - When Linda said how can Candace throw her voice, it's similar to how Aza has the ability to "throw her voice" in Gail Carson Levine's book.
