You can have the biggest ice cream sundae ever made!
―Phineas Flynn

I Scream, You Scream is a Season 2 episode of Phineas and Ferb.

Synopsis

The boys make the biggest ice-cream maker for Isabella after her tonsils are taken out. Vanessa Doofenshmirtz spends the day at her dad’s company, trying to convince her mom that he’s evil, in the same style as Candace to Linda.

Episode Summary

Phineas and Ferb visit Isabella at the hospital, where she has just had her tonsils removed. Phineas was wondering if Isabella would help them on their next project. But her throat still hurts. Phineas then tells some actors that the Trojan War reenactment will have to be postponed until further notice. Phineas tells her that she could eat the biggest ice cream sundae in the world. This gives him an idea. Phineas tells Ferb to fetch the blueprints for a giant ice cream machine at Blueprint Heaven, while he calls the delivery guy.

Meanwhile, Vanessa Doofenshmirtz is preparing for her weekend visit to her father, Dr. Heinz Doofenshmirtz. She tries to convince her mother Charlene Doofenshmirtz that her father is in fact evil, in that he has evil schemes, and a nemesis. Charlene dismisses these claims in a manner similar to Linda. In order to provide proof, she calls up his number, which has his Evil Jingle as the answering machine message. When she tries to play it again for her mother, Heinz picks up, since he was near the phone. Since they are on the phone, Heinz asks Vanessa to stop by Blueprint Heaven to pick up his special order of blueprints.

Ferb fetches the blueprints for the invention, where he spots Vanessa for the first time. He gets distracted by Vanessa and gets the plans mixed up with Dr. Doofenshmirtz’s prints. Phineas and Ferb go home and start building their machine, which turns out to be a Space-Laser-inator, designed by Dr. Doofenshmirtz. Meanwhile Agent P is on the move, told by Major Monogram that Carl failed in his mission, dressing as a saleswoman who gave the blueprints to Ferb and Vanessa, to not provide the authentic plans to Vanessa but went too into character. Thus Perry has to go foil the plan. When he arrives, Vanessa hasn’t arrived at the Doofenshmirtz Evil Incorporated building, and Dr. Doofenshmirtz asks Perry to sit down in a convenient waiting area reminiscent of a dental waiting lobby. Vanessa arrives and passes the plans to her father. Candace watches Phineas and Ferb behind the fence, while Vanessa writes notes down about her father to gain proof. Candace and Vanessa share a duet, Busted, through the unity of their plans to bust their respective annoyances, over a montage of Dr. Doofenshmirtz building the Ice Cream Machine and Phineas and Ferb constructing the Space-Laser-inator.

Dr. Doofenshmirtz completes the ice cream maker unknowingly and traps Perry in a cage. Vanessa plays along, and Dr. D explains his scheme, to use the Space-Laser-Inator to burn away a billboard blocking his panoramic view of the Tri-State Area and also destroy the other things he despises like nature, beauty, and morning talk show hosts. Vanessa is ecstatic that this will get her the proof she needs.

Candace calls her mom while Vanessa calls her own, who is coincidentally Linda’s cooking partner at the cooking class, and both have to cut their class short. So they leave without cleaning the crepe batter on the burner which catches fire, unnoticed.

Meanwhile, Phineas and Ferb complete building the space-laser-inator and activate it, making it blast off into space. Phineas repeats Dr. Doofenshmirtz’s sentiment. He then realizes that the plans were for a Space-Laser-inator, and says that it’s a good thing they didn’t connect the laser. Linda comes over, missing the device’s launch, and offers to help Phineas and Ferb make a giant ice cream sundae for Isabella. Candace is stunned that she didn’t see the invention. Doofenshmirtz gets covered in mint ice cream when he activates the device. “Well this can’t be right,” Doofenshmirtz exclaims, just as his ex-wife Charlene arrives at his building. Charlene declares that Dr. D is Lactose Intolerant, and reveals she pays him alimony. Vanessa is stunned when her mom says Heinz’s invention was not evil. Charlene then releases Perry from the trap, and dismisses Vanessa’s claims that the platypus is the Secret Agent she referred to, reiterating the statement that “They (Platypuses) don’t do much.”

Phineas and Ferb arrive at Isabella’s house, where they give her the ice cream. Phineas wonders what distracted Ferb (as he is normally very focused) at Blueprint Heaven, which Ferb responds with “I was weak,” which is shown to be caused by Vanessa’s presence there.

End Credits

Second verse of Busted

Running Gags

The "Too Young" Line

Engineer: Say, aren't you a little...
Phineas: ...young to be using titanium plating and an industrial arc welder? Yes, yes I am. I get that a lot.
Vanessa: So Dad, this... plan is evil, right?
Dr. Doofenshmirtz: Why yes, yes it is. Nice to see your taking the interest in the family business.


Ferb's Line

Phineas: Hey Ferb, snap out of it. What happened back there?
Ferb: I was weak.


What'cha Doin'?

Phineas: So Isabella, what'cha doin'?
Isabella: Oh, just recovering, but I finally got my Tonsillectomy badge.


I know what we're gonna do today

Phineas: You know, the best part of getting your tonsils out is you get to eat all the ice cream you want.

Isabella: Really?

Phineas: Mountains of it! You can have the biggest ice cream sundae ever made! Ferb, I know what we're gonna do today!


Hey, where's Perry?

Candace: Phineas, you know I'm in charge, right?

Phineas: Uh, isn't that just if a satellite crashes into the-
Candace: No, no, no! When Mom is in cooking class, I'm in charge. Now, what are you up to here?

Phineas: I'd like to tell you, but it's a big surprise. Hey, wait a second. Have you seen Perry?


Perry's entrance to his lair

Instead of going to his lair, a random spring in the ground launches Perry into the air and into his hovercraft.

Evil Jingle

Doofenshmirtz Evil Incorporated! was heard in Vanessa's cellphone.

Memorable Quotes

Phineas: Hello, Blowtorch City? Yeah, I'll hold.
Carl: (Carl in woman costume) Blueprints for an ice cream machine? Hmm I don't think we make those any more. (Ferb blinks) Whoa hold on there sweetie! No need to get upset! I'll just go check in the back! (searches in the back room and pulls out another blueprint) I got blueprints for a yogurt machine. How that sound? (Ferb blinks again) Yeah I don't care for yogurt either baby. I'll keep looking.
Vanessa: (looking at Ferb) Hey how's it goin'?
Charlene: Remember, you're at your dad's this weekend.

Vanessa: Great. A whole forty-eight hours of evil.
Charlene: Vanessa Doofenshmirtz, your father is not evil. We just wanted different things.

Vanessa: Was one of those things TO BE EVIL? Because he's evil!
Chef: (clears throat) Is there something you'd like to share with the WHOLE class, Ms. Flynn?
Dr. Doofenshmirtz: Then I can go on to eliminate all the other annoyances that make my skin crawl. Like, uh... Nature! (Zaps!) Beauty! (Aww!) Morning talk show hosts! (Yay!) Soon, there will be nothing can withstand the wrath of Dr. Heinz Doofenshmirtz!

Vanessa: Doctor? Since when are you a doctor?
Dr. Doofenshmirtz: (pulls out degree) They don't give these out to just anybody, you know.

Vanessa: (looks at a price tag dangling conspicuously from the degree) Anybody with fifteen bucks, they do.
Charlene: (Answering her cellphone) Oh! For Pete's sake, Vanessa!

Linda: (Answering her cellphone) Candace, this better be important.
Charlene: He's doing what?
Linda: Honey, are you sure that you're not exaggerating just a little bit?
Charlene: Well, it's not that I don't believe you, honey...
Linda: But every time I race home, I find out everything is just fine.
Charlene: Yes, I'll be right over.
Linda: I'm on my way. Teenagers.

Charlene: Tell me about it.
Phineas: I was wondering what that thing was for. That must be the laser. It's a good thing we didn't attach it, huh?
Vanessa: See, Mom, I told you, evil!

Charline: (seing Heinz covered in ice cream) Hm, that's not evil, dear. A bit much, perhaps? Heinz, what is all this? I thought you were lactose intollerent?
Doofenshmirtz: I am!

Charline: (covers Heinz in more ice cream) I am paying you way too much alimony.
Isabella: Wow, guys, this is amazing! I was afraid that you guys were gonna go overboard and build some giant sundae contraption or something!

Phineas: Actually, we were gonna do that, but we accidentally built a space laser instead. Ferb, you're usually so focused. How'd you get those plans confused?
(Ferb flashbacks to Vanessa walking in. In Ferb's view, dreamy music plays and Vanessa is surrounded by flowers as she asks, "Hey, how's it going?")
Phineas: Hey, Ferb, snap out of it! What happened back there?

Ferb: I was weak.


Background Information

  • Phineas says Isabella's catch phrase to her.
  • The doctor checking on Isabella is Dr. Hirano, Stacy's and Ginger Hirano's mother.
  • When Isabella was in the hospital her bow on her head was purple, not pink, possibly to match her purple pajamas.
  • Linda and Charlene are taking their class at Chef Guilbaud's Cooking School, presumably named after storyboard artist Antoine Guilbaud (who worked on this episode).
  • This is the first time Isabella's bedroom is seen. The bedroom's wallpaper is covered in triangles which resemble Phineas's head.
  • This is the first time Ferb and Vanessa have ever interacted.
  • The morning talk show host Doofenshmirtz imagines is the TV host from the episode "Flop Starz", "Boyfriend From 27,000 B.C." and "Chez Platypus".
  • This is the first episode with the song continued in the end credits.
  • The music that plays when Ferb sees Vanessa plays again in "Vanessassary Roughness".

Production Information

  • Episode description from the original Phineas and Ferbruary 2008 press release: In "I Scream, You Scream," airing Sunday, Ferb-ruary 17, Allison Janney ("Juno," "The West Wing") guest stars as Charlene, Dr. Doofenshmirtz's ex-wife. After Isabella has her tonsils removed, she's allowed to eat all the ice cream she wants, so Phineas and Ferb build a huge ice cream maker to deliver the biggest ice cream sundae ever. Meanwhile as Candace is trying to get her mom to come home from cooking class and see what the boys are up to, Dr. Doofenshmirtz's daughter, Vanessa, is trying to bust her dad.

Errors

  • When Phineas tells Ferb to collect blueprints from Blueprint Heaven, a pencil suddenly appears in his left hand.
  • When Candace first calls Linda at her cooking class, there are other students behind her. Later, when Candace and Vanessa call Linda and Charlene, the other students have disappeared.
  • Phineas mentions the laser but never actually cleans it up, therefore their mom should have seen it.
  • When Candace is talking on the phone, her feet are much smaller than usual.
  • When Phineas activates the space laser, the black button stays in place while the space laser bounces around.
  • If you look closley at the door during the scenes of Candace and Linda in the backyard, the area in the door is a hallway instead of the living room.
  • When Vanessa inspects the price tag on Doofenshmirtz's degree, the $ is black, but when Doofenshmirtz holds it in his hand, it is green.
  • Doofenshmirtz recognizes Perry in the trap without his hat on.
  • The cooktop behind Linda and Charlene has four knobs but only 2 burners.
  • Vanessa writes down notes about Doofenshmirtz's plan, but never gets a chance to show them to Charlene.
  • When Doofenshmirtz is mistakenly building the ice cream maker, it appears as if he's actually building the Space Laser-inator, but when he's finished, the audience sees the ice cream maker.
  • While Ferb was at Blueprint Heaven, he was holding onto the table when Vanessa arrived. In the flashback however, Ferb was not holding the table when he sees Vanessa.
  • At the beginning of the song, Candace peeks from behind the fence, but is peeking from the door just seconds later.

Continuity

Allusions

  • I Scream, You Scream - Comes from the old rhyme "I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream!"
  • Love Actually - Thomas Sangster (voice actor for Ferb) plays Sam, who is in love with Joanna, played by Olivia Olson (voice/singing actress for Vanessa).
  • The Godfather - Doofenshmirtz refers to his works as the "Family business," similar to how the characters in the film refer to their works.
