If a nerd should ever save a bully's life, the bully is the nerd's slave for life. "Should" is misspelled.
―The Bully Code, read by Baljeet

The Bully Code is an episode of Phineas and Ferb.


When Baljeet saves Buford's life, Buford vows to become his slave. Then, when Candace and Stacy accidentally send bad pictures of Candace to Jeremy's cell phone, they get a job at Mr. Slushy Dawg in order to get his phone and delete the pictures before he sees them.

Episode Summary

Baljeet is in Mr. Slushy Dawg talking to Jeremy about the lack of change of Slushy Dog's menu. Buford arrives at the building and orders a 'Windmill Dog'. As soon as he eats it, he turns blue and starts choking. Baljeet notices and saves Buford from choking. Buford thanks Baljeet and starts worshiping him. He says that he will be Baljeet's slave forever - as per the 'Bully Code'.

Meanwhile, Candace and Stacy are in Candace's room when Jeremy sends Candace a photo of him. She asks Stacy to take a photo of her and send it to Jeremy but all of the photos are horrible. The photos are sent accidentally and the girls decide to go to Jeremy's workplace and delete the photos before he sees them. As they walk past the garden, they see Phineas and Ferb deciding what to do and Candace tells them they're so busted. Stacy reminds her of their mission and head over to Mr Slushy Dawg.

Perry is in the bathroom and taps the floor. Flashing lights appear on the floor and Disco Miniature Golfing Queen can be heard in the background. Perry slides down a chute and lands in the lair. Major Monogram gives Perry his mission and Perry flies to Doofenshmirtz Evil Incorporated. Dr. Doofenshmirtz greets Perry by asking him if he came to sign his foot cast. He says he saved a space for Perry with 'Save for Perry' written on his foot. Perry then gets caught in a trap from a pen on the ceiling whilst Doofenshmirtz explains how he broke his foot (by an ice-cream van running it over) and shows Perry his 'Re-tire-inator'. He plans to shoot a tire at the ice-cream van that ran over his foot.

Anything But Go Away

Buford helps Baljeet in everything after saving him.

Buford is at Baljeet's house and tries to help Baljeet, but all his actions are unhelpful, almost intentionally so. Baljeet asks Buford to stop being his slave, then climbs out of the window when Buford refuses. He runs to Phineas and Ferb and asks them to help him. They agree and start building a complicated machine across the road from Mr Slushy Dawg, where Candace and Stacy try to sneak in. Jeremy catches them and says that only employees can enter. Candace lies by saying she and Stacy trained to become staff and are next seen in the Slushy Dawg uniform. Candace is working at the drive-through when Linda appears in her station wagon. She is surprised to see Candace whilst Candace spots Phineas and Ferb's machine. She tells Linda to come and see what the boys are doing, but she is stuck in a long line at the drive-through, so Candace starts hurriedly completing orders.

Outside, Phineas is explaining to Baljeet how cool it would be to have a bully as a slave. Baljeet rethinks whilst Buford arrives. Baljeet starts asking Buford to get started on other chores. Just then, Doofenshmirtz sets the gun and counts it down as Perry escapes his net. He jumps on the machine just before the tire is shot. The tire bounces across town until it hits the hot dog on top of Mr Slushy Dawg whilst Candace grabs Jeremy's phone from his hands. The hot dog almost hits Baljeet but Buford pushes him out of the way. Buford says they're even now, disappointing Baljeet. Candace runs into Phineas and Ferb's machine after deleting all of the bad photographs, activating it. Buford catches her, then states that she is now his servant but Candace disagrees. She gives Jeremy his phone back and Jeremy sees the photo Candace took accidentally while on the machine. Jeremy thanks her for the lovely photo and starts to talk about her job at Mr. Slushy Dog. Candace doesn't mind as she quits anyway. Buford ask the boys if they want a Slushy Dog but all refuse. As they leave, Linda passes the boys' machine, looking for Candace. She looks at Phineas and Ferb's creation and says that she doesn't understand public art.

Memorable Quotes

Baljeet: Do you find it as curious as I do that your menu has not changed since you opened in 1929? Jeremy: I know. It's awesome, right. It's our motto - "Slushy Dawgs will never get any better."
Dr. Doofenshmirtz: See? I saved you a spot, right there, see? It says "Save for Perry". Of course, it was a bigger spot before I wrote "Save for Perry" on it...
Dr. Doofenshmirtz: You heard of the internet?! Well, this is just a net. But you're caught!
Linda: Candace? You work here?
Candace: Mom? You eat here?
Candace: I'm going to et-gay the one-phay.
Stacy: Ugh, you KNOW I don't speak Spanish.
Candace: Stacy, we've got to get Mom up here so she can see what the boys are doing. Keep throwing food out the window!
Stacy: Okay...
Baljeet: (excited) YES!! This thing is definitely a thing! What is this thing?
The Re-tire-inator lands on Dr. Doofenshmirtz's good foot
Dr. Doofenshmirtz: Ow! Oh, my good foot! Ow! Oh, my bad foot! Oh, my good foot again! Now my bad foot! Ow, this is really a vicious cycle!

Background Information

  • Major Monogram apologizes for disturbing Perry on Canada Day, which is July 1. However, it is not the first episode to take place in July. This episode may take place before the other ones, and confirm that the episode production order is different than their in-universe chronological order.
    • This is further proven as "Sidetracked," a Season 4 episode, takes place before Canada Day.
  • This is one of the few episodes to have Doofenshmirtz address Agent P as Perry, not Perry the Platypus.
  • Mr. Slushy Dawg was founded the same year as the infamous stock market crash. It is unknown whether this was intentional or not. It's probably why "it never gets better."
  • It is weird that Buford would say to Candace that she is his slave because Buford is not a nerd and Candace is not a bully. This could be because Buford is in love in Candace and wants to have her as her servant for being with her
  • Isabella does not make any appearances in either this episode or "Finding Mary McGuffin".
  • When Perry taps his feet on the bathroom floor tile, a bit of music from Disco Miniature Golfing Queen plays ("Put That Putter Away").
  • Dr. Bloodpudding has the Giant floating baby head with him. It also appears to have signed Dr Doofenshmirtz's cast under the spot Doofenshmirtz saved for Perry ("One Good Scare Ought to Do It!", et al.).
  • The show's Theme Song can be heard when Candace is on Phineas and Ferb's contraption, it sounds like the Original Cut, the more cartoonish version.
  • The Slushy the Clown jingle is heard briefly when the kids debate on going to Slushy Dog towards the end of the episode ("Does This Duckbill Make Me Look Fat?").
  • This is one of the few episodes that Linda actually sees Phineas and Ferb's invention, even though she thinks it is public art.

Production Information

  • In the UK, this episode is called "The Bully Pledge".

  • When Monogram is briefing Agent P, the second and third surveillance pictures bear the same recording time, 12:01:03. This means that the events occur at the same time, which is impossible as the camera is accurate to the second, and it records the same entrance. Also, the blue and yellow cars present in picture two do not appear in picture three.
  • When Stacy wonders what the buttons are for, Candace's legs are in an impossible position.
  • When Stacy first takes a picture of Candace, when the screen of the phone is facing Stacy, it shows a particular picture. But when Candace is looking at the picture, it is a different a picture.
  • When Phineas, Ferb and Baljeet start talking after the hotdog falls it seems to disappear, but they might have been in an angle where you can't see it.



  • Pig Latin - "Et-gay the one-phay" is Pig Latin for "get the phone".
  • Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy - Stacy says, "You know I don't speak Spanish." This is a direct line from the movie Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy.
  • Toontown Online - Phineas and Ferb discuss about a monetary system of jellybeans, much like the ones used in Toontown Online.
  • Garfield - When Doofenshmirtz is describing his "Retire-Inator", he mentions that part of it includes a big orange fat house cat. It could be a reference to Garfield.
  • The Brady Bunch - The episode where Peter becomes Bobby's slave for life after saving his life. The song He'll Do Anything But Go Away? also make reference to it with the 70's sitcom cliche line.
