Eat your heart out, Howard Hughes!
―Phineas Flynn

Phineas and Ferb set out to build a bigger plane than Howard Hughes' wooden Spruce Goose, so they build it out of papier-mâché, to do a similar theme to the Spruce Goose, complete with in-flight service and entertainment. Dr. Doofenshmirtz is doing his part to be green by using recycled materials to build an "Evaporator-inator" to dry up all the pools in the Tri-State area. Meanwhile, Candace and Stacy attend Jeremy's pool party only to discover an adventurous Australian girl is capturing Jeremy's attention.

Episode Summary

The episode starts off in Candace's room when she and Stacy were deciding on what to wear for Jeremy's pool party. Candace was asking Stacy which swimsuit to wear. After explaining why Candace's swimsuit choices were not good, Stacy then tells Candace to let her conscience do the talking and go with the swimsuit that she touched first. After Candace thanked the fashion-phenom, Stacy then asked her for advice of what hat to wear to the party. Candace responded by saying that it doesn't matter. After looking at the hats for a few seconds, Stacy agrees with Candace and says that she fusses too much.

Meanwhile in the Flynn-Fletcher living room, Phineas and Ferb are watching an informational TV show, where it tells about Howard Hughes' Spruce Goose, which is the largest plane ever built. Phineas decides to break the world record and tells Ferb he knows what he's going to do today.

Phineas and Ferb go out to their backyard with stacks of newspapers. Isabella, the Fireside Girls, Buford, and Baljeet come over and offer them some help. Phineas tells them that Howard Hughes named his plane the Spruce Goose because it was built out of wood, and since their airplane will be built out of paper-mache, they decide to name it the Paper Pelican.

Meanwhile, Perry enters his lair. Major Monogram informs him that Dr. Heinz Doofenshmirtz has gone green, but still is doing something neutral. Perry arrives at Dr. Doofenshmirtz's building. Dr. Doofenshmirtz pretends to pick up the phone but traps Perry in it. He shows Perry that he has created an Evaporator-inator out of recycled materials. He flashes back to a time when his mother would never let him swim in public pools.

Candace and Stacy arrive at Jeremy's pool party, where they see him talking to a blond girl with an Australian accent, whom Jeremy calls Nicolette. This worries Candace deeply. Phineas realizes that they have built the biggest airplane ever. Phineas, Ferb, and their friends enter the airplane. They ignite the airplane, while Isabella and Baljeet serve refreshments to Buford and the Fireside Girls as flight attendants. After Buford voices a complaint about what he is served, Baljeet creates a dish called Peanut Chicken with the motto "So peanutty, you won't even taste the chicken". It gets Buford's grudging approval.

Stacy helps Candace and tells her that she's much cooler than Nicolette. Candace clears her throat angrily and argues with Nicolette. Meanwhile, Dr. Doofenshmirtz activates his Evaporator-inator just as Candace is about to show everyone a real dive. Everyone grabs their skateboards and use the swimming pool as a skate park. Meanwhile, Perry fights with Dr. Doofenshmirtz. Dr. Doofenshmirtz is about to evaporate Perry with his Evaporator-inator, but Phineas and Ferb's Paper Pelican passes over the sun and causes the Evaporator-inator to lose its power, giving Perry a chance to defeat Dr. Doofenshmirtz.

Jeremy accidentally slips and his skateboard lands near the diving board. Candace walks off and gets caught on the skateboard, causing her to skate everywhere. Jeremy becomes impressed by Candace's skill. Phineas and Ferb's Paper Pelican passes over the sun just as Candace crashes into Jeremy. Phineas and Ferb land their airplane in a body of water, where Baljeet explains that since the airplane is made of paper-mache, it'll soak into the water. Then they all float to land.


End Credits

Candace's cast

Jeremy signs Candace's cast.

As the car pulls into the driveway, Linda tells Candace she really should be more careful. Candace and Jeremy come out, wearing casts. Candace tells Linda they were wearing helmets. Candace and Jeremy then discuss how Nicolette is Jeremy's cousin, and she was talking about a video game level that had her stuck for a week. He asks Candace if he can sign her cast, which he does with their initials inside a heart.

Ferb's Line

Phineas: Alright Ferb, let's go though with our pre-fly chеcklist. Pilots instruments? Check. Co-pilots' instruments?
Ferb: (shows musical instruments) Check.

What'cha doin'?

Isabella: Hey guys, What'cha doin'?

Phineas: We're making the biggest airplane ever.
Isabella: Cool, coincidentally we're going for our Aeronautic Patches.
Phineas: Coincidentally, we can use extra hands.

Isabella: Coincidentally, we're in.

Memorable Quotes

Stacy: Hmm, that's tough. On one hand, if you go with the a-chromatic pink, it kind of says, "Hi, I'm Candace, and I'm bedraggled and pallid." Trust me, you don't want that; I've been both. But, if you go with the more saturated pink, it kind of gives you that overkill, out-to-kill, "my currency is urgency" look.

Candace: I don't want that. I've been all three.
Stacy: Let your subconscious do the deciding. Go with the one you touched first.
Candace: (sighs) Of course! Stacy, you're a fashion phenom!
Stacy: (holding two hats) Which hat should I go with?
Candace: I don't think it matters.

Stacy: Yeah, you're right, I fuss too much.

Dr. Doofenshmirtz: Back story time! You see, Perry the Platypus, when I was boy my mother would never let me swim in public pools.

Doofenshirtmz looks at his mother Mrs. Doofenshmirtz: (in flashback) No.

Dr. Doofenshmirtz: What? That's it! You know, not every back story has to have some big, in-depth spiel, Mr. High Expectations.

Stacy: Wait! Now! We're exactly fashionably late!

Candace: She's like catnip for boys! She's boynip!

Stacy: You're Candace Flynn!

Candace: Yeah! I'm Candace Flynn!
Jeremy: Candace?

Candace: Oh, look. He remembered my name. How nice.

Buford: You'd better have some decent grub on this bucket.
Baljeet: You will be most gratified! (after Buford has walked away) As long as you find insignificant bags of peanuts gratifying. (sighs) Welcome to Wedgie-ville. Population: me.

Baljeet walks up to Buford, holding a plate piled high with airplane peanuts

Buford: That better not be insignificant bags of peanuts!
Baljeet: No, of course not, sir. (chuckles nervously and runs off screen) (The sounds of wrappers crinkling and china clinking take over for a second returns with a chicken made of peanuts) Here, sir. Try our deluxe Peanut Chicken. Our motto is, "So peanutty, you will not even taste the chicken."
Male Voice: (singing) So peanutty, you won't even taste the chicken!
Buford: I better not taste any chicken then, loser. (takes off the leg of the peanut-chicken and eats it). Alright, you survive for now.

Baljeet: Oh, thank you, sir!

Candace: There's been a lot of talk around here about diving and snakes and diving with snakes and snakes into pools filled with piranha and sulfuric acid—

Nicolette: I didn't say anything about sulfuric acid.

Candace: Leave all questions to the end of the rant? Thank you.

Background Information

  • The "Funnies" Buford holds up look very similar to the real comic strips Dan Povenmire did in college called "Life is a Fish," following the secret life of a gold fish.[1]
  • When Candace is on the skateboard, random observers add safety gear to her with the words, "Safety first!" Policy is that all characters on children cartoons practice proper safety precautions when doing certain activities, such as skateboarding. The steering wheel and Candace's comment during the end credit are both subtle jabs at this policy.
  • The title of this episode is De Plane! De Plane!. This is a reference to the original 1970's television series "Fantasy Island" where the character known as Tattoo, played by Herve Villechaize. Tattoo would run up the main bell tower to ring the bell and shout "The plane! The plane!" to announce the arrival of a new set of guests at the beginning of each episode. Also "De" is the Dutch word of English "The."
  • This is the first episode that Doofenshmirtz has a back-story that has no in-depth effect of his life.
  • Once again, Candace does not try to bust Phineas and Ferb.

Production Information

  • to be added


  • When Candace and Stacy originally arrive at the party, they are shorter than the hedge when they go to talk. However, when Candace yells, "I'm Candace Flynn!" she is much taller than the hedge.
  • Doofenshmirtz' shirt is plain black when Perry arrives but before he starts seems to sport a recycling symbol. But after the backstory the recycling symbol was gone.
  • When Candace and Stacy arrive at Jeremy's pool party, Stacy's hat is white, then it turns bluish-purple, and then it turns white again.
  • Phineas states that Howard Hughes called his plane the Spruce Goose. He actually called it the "H-4 Hurcules". The "Spruce Goose" was a nickname given to the plane by the press. In reality, Hughes despised that name.
  • The Spruce Goose's wingspan is actually 320 feet, 11 inches, therefor Phineas and Ferb wouldn't have beaten the record since the plane was 320 feet even, they would come up 11 inches short


  • Stacy reminded Candace of the time she thought D.D. was trying to get Jeremy's attention and she later found out D.D. is a guy. Stacy also reminded her of when Candace, Phineas and Ferb were snowboarding and how Candace was freaking out the whole time. ("S'Winter")
  • Stacy explained to Candace how great she is by reminding her that she fought dinosaurs, went to Mars and when she went back in time. (not in that order). ("It's About Time!" and "Unfair Science Fair Redux (Another Story)")
  • Candace had the same zinc sunblock just like the sunblock Linda gave to Phineas before they went out onto the lake. ("The Lake Nose Monster")
  • Ferb sings Big Ginormous Airplane in a voice other than his own, similar to when he sang Backyard Beach. Surprise enough, in both songs, Ferb's mouth is covered with the mic the entire time excluding the first three lines. ("Lawn Gnome Beach Party of Terror")
  • When the Paper Pelican flies over Jeremy's house, a girl from S.I.M.P. (Squirrels In My Pants) can be seen. ("Comet Kermillian")
  • The girl whose sitting in the first row of the plane is one of the "kids that's going to have a conniption". ("Are You My Mummy?")
  • Candace writes "C+J" in a heart while brooding about what will happen if they don't go back home the same way Jeremy signed Candace's cast. ("It's About Time!")
  • The girls from Shimmy Jimmy Toy commercial appear again dancing with the Fireside Girls. ("Toy to the World")
  • Buford's seat in the plane has the same background color as Candace's (and Nicolette's) swimsuits. The white floral pattern is similar to the single white flowers on the two swimsuits.
  • In one scene, a teen seen in S'Winter re-appears


  • The comics that Buford holds have a fish in them, which is a possible reference to Dan Povenmire's comics "Life is a Fish".
  • Fantasy Island - The episode's name is a probable reference to Tattoo's ubiquitous quote. This quote has also been said by Boomer of The Rowdyruff Boys.
  • The television show, "Wacky Millionaires Throughout History" may be an allusion to the Joan Rivers show, "How'd You Get So Rich?".
  • Howard Hughes - His plane the Spruce Goose, is both mentioned and surpassed by the kids.
  • "Big Ginormous Airplane" is similar to the song heard in The Magic Kingdom's former If You Had Wings attraction that operated from 1972 to Eastern Airlines' bankruptcy in 1987.
  • Pokémon - Greevil is also the name of Cipher's leader in Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness.
  • The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy - The flower pot that appeared during Perry's flip through the floor to escape Dr. Doofenshmirtz's trap may be a reference to the Infinite Improbability Drive in Douglas Adams's "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy". Doofenshmirtz later said that Perry's judo moves were "improbable".
