You've heard of Boot Camp? Well, ladies, welcome to Bust Camp!

Candace Flynn

Phineas and Ferb-Busters! is a Season 2 episode of Phineas and Ferb.

Synopsis

Candace enlists her friends Stacy and Jenny to help her bust her brothers, so they run trial busting events in the backyard to prep for the real thing. Meanwhile, Phineas and Ferb create an unlimited power supply to propel a group of cyclone-like vehicles known as "Spinning Tops of Doom." Over at Doofenshmirtz Evil Inc., a new replacement robot for Norm has been called into action but when struck by the surge of power going through Danville, the robot turns on Dr. Doofenshmirtz and makes him the target.

Episode Summary

Candace, yet again having failed to bust her brothers, is inspired to get some assistance after Isabella comments that anything is possible with teamwork. As part of "Nerd Awareness Week", Baljeet chooses the day's activity, called Spinning Tops. Buford thinks that it's lame, but agrees to give it a shot after Baljeet adds "Of Doom" to the name. It turns out to be a board game, which gets boring very fast, and Phineas decides that it needs more "oomph". Baljeet is happy about this, but is interrupted as he's about to ask where Perry is.

Monogram sends Perry out on his mission, and he uses a magic wand to make an exit, which astounds Monogram, though it was just a trick by Perry.

Candace, Stacy and Jenny striking a pose.

Candace has enlisted Stacy and Jenny in the day's attempt to stop the boys, but Stacy shakes her confidence when asks if she can get her bodysuit in pink. Jenny suggests that if they help Candace, she'll get over her busting issues, and the three begin their "busting" training in a montage similar to Charlie's Angels.

At Doofenshmirtz Evil Incorporated, Norm accidentally spills coffee on Doofenshmirtz's lap, naturally causing him pain and irritation. A package arrives for him, and he's excited about receiving a new "nemesis toy". Perry had hidden himself in the box, and kicks Doof in the face after wondering if the "toy" lays eggs. Doof restrains Perry with a Straightjacket-inator, and shows him a new robot that is much smaller, sleeker and more efficient than Norm. Norm overhears Doof's put-downs, and becomes broken-hearted.

Candace runs through the final gameplay with Stacy and Jenny, setting up their positions and assigning them roles for maximum swiftness and efficiency at busting Phineas and Ferb. They successfully perform a drill and get back to scouting for Linda.

After creating large mechanized Spinning Tops, the kids (with the exception of Buford) each climb into their own Top and proceed to start bumping into each other, laughing playfully. Buford still thinks the game is lame, and tries to liven things up by increasing the Tops' radiant power source, thereby causing them to spin wildly out of control. The radiant power sends powerful energy waves across Danville, causing problems to citizens, as well as shorting out both Jenny and Stacy's headsets, making them unable to communicate with Candace.

Doofenshmirtz's little robot is also affected by the radiant power, causing it to evolve into a large mecha that threatens to destroy him. Perry attempts to stop the rampage and save Doofenshmirtz, but he's catapulted out of the building. Monogram contacts him, ordering him to seek out the source of the sudden power wave and put a stop to it. Doof, meanwhile, falls to the mercy of his decontrolled robot, and Norm "accidentally" spills coffee onto it, causing it to short circuit and collapse. Doofenshmirtz happily thanks Norm for coming to his aid. It is also revealed that Norm runs on squirrel power, which is why he wasn't affected by the power surge. Doof then contemplates reading Norm's operation manual.

Linda arrives home, and Candace is quick to drag her to the backyard gate. She waits in vain for her friends' signal, but their headsets are broken and they must dodge the Spinning Tops to avoid grievous bodily harm. The kids, now uncomfortable with spinning wildly out of control, eject from their machines, and the Tops are sent flying into the sky. Perry arrives, rips off the power button of the radiant power machine, and dashes off in the blink of an eye. Linda enters the backyard and sees the kids playing with the board game. Stacy and Jenny ramble to her about the mechanized tops, and Candace tells them to knock it off. Linda offers them pie, and everyone is happy to accept.

Memorable Quotes

As he walks by a dismayed Candace

Buford: You've inspired me: I'm growing out my bangs.
As he too walks by

Baljeet: Namaste, compadres.
Isabella: Do you know how I earned this mountain-moving patch?

Candace: By mindlessly repeating a flawed busting strategy?

Isabella: No, through teamwork. See that mountain over there? It used to be over there. With a little teamwork, you can do anything.
Baljeet: It is called "spinning tops."

Buford: LAME!
Baljeet: Of DOOM!

Buford: Alright I'll give it a shot.
In reference to his newest machine.

Doofenshmirtz: It may be small, but it's stronger and smarter than Norm, and it's so much more efficient!

Norm: (in the bathroom, using a bubble-blower to blow single bubbles) Eight-hundred forty-seven... eight-hundred forty-eight...
Candace drags a Linda-dummy into the yard

Candace: Mom, mom! Phineas and Ferb have built outer space in our backyard!
A cardboard cutout of Ferb topples over
Phineas: Hey Candace. Nice "us"-es. When'd you make those?

Candace: (turning away with the dummy) Pay no attention to them, mom.
Norm: Now I know I have a heart, because it's breaking.
Linda: Well, I've got a few seconds to kill before my bladder bursts like a water balloon.
Doofenshmirtz's Mecha: Doofenshmirtz. Your pathetic schemes have always failed. Now, step aside and let the true master take over.

Doofenshmirtz: *gasp* He CAN Talk!
The Mecha blasts him

Doofenshmirtz: And shoot too. AH! Save me! Save me, Perry the Platypus!
Doofenshmirtz's Mecha: Prepare to meet your maker, Maker!

Doofenshmirtz: (as the Mecha shoots at him) I'm feeling such an odd mixture of pride and mortal terror.
The Mecha extends his blender attachment as a weapon

Doofenshmirtz: Mostly terror! MOSTLY TERROR!
Norm: Don't you remember? I run on squirrel power!

Norm reveals a squirrel on his insides that is powering him.

Doofenshmirtz: Wow. I really have to read your manual.
Jenny Brown: I lied about the persimmon.
Mom: Oh.

Stacy and Jenny continues to explain to mom at the same time but strugglingStacy & Jenny: Giant spinning tops of doom!

Buford:off-screen LAME!

Errors

  • Norm says that he runs on squirrel power, but in other episodes he has been shown with different power sources: oil, batteries, and an on/off switch. ("Traffic Cam Caper", "At the Car Wash", and "Greece Lightning", respectively.)
  • Related to this is that when Norm stated that he ran on squirrel power, he opened up his chest cavity to reveal a squirrel running on a squirrel wheel. However, Agent P was able fit into a miniature control room in Norm's chest area. Both the squirrel wheel and the control room could not have fit in there ("Traffic Cam Caper").
  • When Baljeet ejects from his top, you can see that his top has two buttons while everyone else's tops only have one eject button.
  • Stacy and Jenny's headphones were affected by the radiation but Candace's headphones were not affected. It might be because Candace wasn't in the backyard at the time.
  • When the Spinning tops flew away, the spinning top of Isabella is Violet instead of pink.
  • Linda said she was gonna check on her roast even though that was RIGHT when she got home.
  • When the robot reveals its face, for the first time, the sleeves on Perry's straitjacket are missing thus revealing his arms.

Continuity

Allusions

  • The title is a parody of the movie Ghostbusters. A parody of the franchise's familiar logo is also seen.
  • Scarface - Doofenshmirtz says "Say hello to my little friend" as he shoots Agent P with a straightjacket gun.
  • Candace, Stacy, and Jenny strike a dramatic pose with an explosion in the background, mimicking the opening credits to the 1970s crime series Charlie's Angels.
  • Jenny appears out of a secret tunnel like the one in the 1960s World War II comedy Hogan's Heroes.
  • Isabella mentions being able to move mountains, a common expression of doing the impossible.
  • Norm saying "Now I know I have a heart ... because it's breaking" is a line from the film The Wizard of Oz; the line is spoken by the Tin Woodman.
  • The name "Spinning Tops of Doom" is an allusion to the Disney Channel series Kim Possible.
  • Totally Spies - The suits Candace, Stacy and Jenny wear are similar to the suits normally worn in that series.
