What gets me is: Why did the Trojan War take so long? If I were Achilles, I could have taken the city of Troy like in one afternoon.

Buford Van Stomm

"Troy Story" is an episode of Phineas and Ferb.

Inspired by Candace's book club selection, The Iliad, the boys reenact the Trojan War -- but with a Phineas and Ferb twist. Meanwhile, Perry discovers that Doofenshmirtz has a major problem with throwing things away so he helps him find his De-Clutter-Inator.

Episode Summary

While under their tree with Ferb and Isabella, Phineas asks Candace about the book that she's holding, The Iliad. Candace explains it's for the book club she and Jeremy joined. Phineas tells Candace that himself, Ferb, and the rest of the group already read the book. Candace brings up the subject of a "wooden horse", and the group explains how the Greek army built a huge wooden horse and left it outside the gates of Troy as part of their plan to conquer the Trojans. Eventually, Phineas comes up with the idea of recreating the Trojan War. Irving shows up later on asking join in on the fun, but Buford refuses to let him join, until Irving bribes him with some baklava.

At the same time, Perry uses a secret entrance in the Flynn-Fletcher Antiques store to enter his lair. Major Monogram reports on a failed surveillance mission on Doofenshmirtz from "Team Cockroach", and simply asks Perry to go check it out.

Buford, Irving, and Baljeet finish building the scene for their Trojan War reenactment. Buford decides that they need a bigger army, and puts on his "recruitment fustanella".

Meanwhile, at Doofenshmirtz Evil Incorporated, Doofenshmirtz opens the door to allow Perry to fly in using a jetpack, which makes Perry get caught in a net. Doofenshmirtz explains that he's been trying to reorganize all of his stuff, but in the process, he made everything more messy. Since Norm wasn't able to help him, Doofenshmirtz made a "Declutter-inator", which makes people want to "un-clutter" things. Unfortunately, Doofenshmirtz lost the machine, so he hired a cleaning lady named Doreen to help him get organized, but she got lost in the mess as well. Doreen calls out from the mess, but Doofenshmirtz is oblivious to the noise.

Later on, Buford is recruiting more people to join the Trojan War reenactment. Balthazar Horowitz shows up to be in the war, about to explain that he has a medical condition of sorts but then is cut off by Buford. Another person, Dimitri Popaunicolas, shows up. When Buford asks if he has any experience being Greek, Dimitri tells Buford that he actually is Greek, but is cut off by Buford as well, and ordered Irving to bring more baklava.

Back in the house, Candace is reading The Iliad, but starts dozing off while reading the book. She is awoken by a shout from Buford from the outside, and walks over to the window to see what is happening. Upon seeing the Troy Castle that Phineas built, she figures that Phineas is staging a reenactment of the Trojan War, and decides to simply watch the battle and just take notes for her book club. Buford continues with what he was doing, and entices Baljeet to come down from the castle. When he gets down, Buford charges his army directly at Baljeet, and everyone begins recreating the events leading up to the Trojan War in song form.

At Doofenshmirtz Evil Incorporated, Doofenshmirtz is still looking for Doreen in the mess. While Doofenshmirtz isn't paying attention, Perry cuts through the net and activates a GPS showing the way through the clutter maze.

In the backyard, Buford's Greek army starts to leave the reenactment because they have other things to do. Buford then decides it's time for "Plan B", which involves Irving climbing into a wooden platypus, much like the story of the Trojan Horse. Phineas doesn't fall for the decoy platypus. Suddenly, Buford reveals a wooden T-rex with laser cannons that Ferb built, and stomps on the platypus. Phineas realizes that the reenactment is no longer on topic, and decides to go along with it; Candace still believes everything that is going on in the reenactment. Phineas and his army go to two flying chariots, which are also equipped with laser cannons. After realizing that Ferb made the T-rex laser proof, he uses a rope between the two chariots to trip the T-rex, making it fall and destroy itself and the castle. Deciding it was a draw, Phineas goes to look for Candace to tell her how it really ended, unaware she had ten minutes to go to her book club.

Doofenshmirtz, still looking for Doreen, finds that Perry already found the Declutter-inator. Doofenshmirtz is about to shoot himself with it, but then realizes that it isn't plugged in.

Back at the house, Lawrence enters the backyard, and finds all the mess left from the Trojan War reenactment.

At the same time, Doofenshmirtz finally finds a socket and plugs in his Declutter-inator. It makes a whirring sound, and suddenly fires a stray beam and explodes, destroying the clutter and part of Doofenshmirtz's lair. The beam hits Lawrence, who suddenly has a urge to clean all the mess up. Doofenshmirtz admits it did get rid of all the clutter, but then he finds Doreen, who hands him an invoice.

Just as Linda enters the backyard, Lawrence cleans up the rest of the mess. He tells Linda he was just tidying up a little, and Linda invites him in for some cake.

End Credits

Candace, Stacy, and a few of Jeremy's other friends are at his house to discuss the book. Candace talks about her book, but narrates it as how Phineas and Ferb did the reenactment of the Trojan war, rather than the actual story. Jeremy tells Candace to not worry if she didn't actually read the book, because nobody else did. Stacy then says she only goes to the reading club to have tea.

I know what we're gonna do today

Phineas: Ferb, I know what we're gonna do today. We gonna finally recreate the Trojan War. I'll be Paris because my name starts with a P.
Isabella: And I'll be Helen because- (Realizing she wrapped her arm around Phineas' arm) Ah, my... name... starts... with... I which is right after H.


The "Too Young" Line

None.

Ferb's Line

(Phineas, Isabella and the Fireside Girls use ropes to tie the Trojan T-Rex feet)

Buford: Well, that can't be good.

Ferb: Guess they knew that a T-Rex's weakness is also its Achilles' heel.


What'cha doin'?

None.

Hey, where's Perry?

Phineas: You know who else loves history and historical reenactment?
Buford: Hey, where's your dad?


Perry's entrance to his lair

At the Flynn-Fletcher Antique, Perry enters through a mirror then (as his theme plays backwards) opens a door to fall into a Alice in Wonderland-style rabbit hole and lands in his chair.

Baljeet: Buford, just try imagining a larger door.

Buford: Oh, okay, hang on. (beat) Oh, yeah, that's better.


Buford: Yeah, we're gonna need a bigger army. Irving, break out my recruitment fustanella.

Irving: You mean the little green skirt--?

Buford: It's a fustanella.


Irving: (singing) Troy! Troy! Troy! (music stops) Troy! -- Oh, it's all over.


Buford: (reveals a robotic wooden T-Rex) Ha! I bet you didn't see a Trojan T-Rex with a laser cannon mouth and laser cannon eyes coming. Did you?

Production Information

International Premieres

  • August 14, 2013 (Disney Channel Latin America)
  • August 18, 2013 (Disney Channel Brazil)

Errors

  • Isabella is shown with eyebrows throughout nearly the entire episode yet again, though the book Learn to Draw Phineas and Ferb reveals she doesn't have them and is sensitive about it.
  • Right after the castle gets destroyed, Phineas and the gang instantly change into their regular outfits.
  • During Troy Song, the lyrics state that Agamemnon got mad because Paris took Helen to Troy and started the Trojan War. This is false, however, as Agamemnon's brother Menelaus is the one that declared war on Troy because of the loss of Helen, not Agamemnon.

Continuity

  • Phineas mentions that "We're gonna finally recreate the Trojan War.", referencing that they had intended to do that, but put it our hold due to Isabella having her tonsils removed ("I Scream, You Scream").
