Training nuts? Okay, what did I miss?

Ferb Fletcher

"What'd I Miss?" is an episode of Phineas and Ferb.

Phineas and the gang introduce Ferb and Perry to their newest project - training domesticated squirrels to live in the wild. Meanwhile, Dr. Doofenshmirtz aims to do a better job of seeing through his evil plans now that Agent P is back.

Episode SummaryEdit

The gang is outside, sitting under the tree, talking about what they did the day before. Ferb is missing. He then walks in the gate with Perry, revealing that he'd finished with debate camp earlier than expected, having changed another camper's worldview in a debate. Phineas offers him muffins made from the previous day's "training nuts," prompting Ferb to ask what he'd missed. This leads Phineas to recount the day for him.

Phineas begins the flashback: He'd originally planned to help Isabella earn her surfing patch, and had made miniature prototype surfboards in order that she could choose a design. Isabella comments that squirrels could ride on them, and that they only need a box of squirrels. Baljeet and Buford promptly show up with a box of squirrels, but the squirrels have been domesticated and "have no squirrel sense." Phineas remarks that he knows what they're going to do today, with Baljeet playing the role of Ferb. Phineas then asks where Perry is, and the flashback ends. Phineas realizes that Perry is again missing.

Perry lands in his lair, and Major Monogram reports that Danville is suffering from a shortage of peaches. He sends the platypus after Doofenshmirtz, but Perry exits in mid-sentence.

Phineas is continuing the story when Candace shows up, demanding to know what he and his friends are up to. When she hears that he's telling the story of what they did yesterday, she decides to go get Linda so that she can hear the story and finally bust the boys.

Perry lands on the beach and is promptly trapped under a bucketful of sand. Doofenshmirtz asks Perry how debate camp went, and it is seen that Perry changed the same camper's worldview in another debate, although Doofenshmirtz cannot see the flashback. He then tells Perry that he is at the beach at the clam bake to do something with his new invention, the Peach-Cobbler-inator, but he has to tell the previous day's story first.

Flashback to the previous day: Doofenshmirtz, at his evil headquarters, is expecting Perry when Agent R shows up instead. He attempts to trap Agent R, but since the trap is platypus-sized, it does not hold the rhinoceros at all. Doofenshmirtz then reveals his evil plan: his brother Roger is officiating a beauty pageant, and he plans to use his A-Leaky-Faucet-inator to drop one huge drop of water on him. (His original plan had involved domesticated squirrels, doilies, and pantyhose containers, but switched after a leaky faucet distracted him.) Agent R, however, starts eating clumsily off a table, much to Doofenshmirtz' annoyance.

In the Flynn-Fletcher backyard, Candace has brought Linda out to listen to Phineas' story. Buford continues by stating that they finally reached "the musical part of the story," where they taught squirrels how to live in the wild, through eating nuts, looking cute, dodging cars, climbing trees, and dancing, which Buford added to the list much to Linda's confusion.

Back at the beach, Doofenshmirtz continues his flashback. Having loaded the -inator onto his rocket skiff along with Agent R, he arrives at the beauty contest and prepares to drop water onto Roger. Despite a momentary distraction when a crow lands on his head, Doofenshmirtz activates the A-Leaky-Faucet-inator, but is annoyed when Agent R does not attempt to stop him. In an attempt to initiate this, he unlocks the shackle on Agent R's ankle, but the rhino just walks away. However, this unbalances the rocket skiff, causing it to spin rapidly and launch the giant water drop.

Meanwhile, the kids are still training the squirrels when the water droplet lands in the backyard. The squirrels ride the wave out of the yard using the prototype surfboards, much to Candace's frustration when she attempts to bust the boys to Linda moments later.

Roger is concluding the talent portion of the beauty contest when Doofenshmirtz and Agent R land on stage, having fallen from the skiff. Doofenshmirtz starts riding the rhinoceros like a rodeo bull, impressing the judges.

Concluding his story, Doofenshmirtz tells Perry that he was crowned King Pretty Pretty Princess -- the first time he ever won something. As such, he has become obsessed with entering contests, and plans to use his Peach-Cobbler-inator to get the clam bake judges to crave his peach cobbler and declare it the winner. However, while he is boasting about how Perry-proof this -inator is, Perry throws a handful of sand on it, shorting it out. Doofenshmirtz throws the Peach-Cobbler-inator behind him, and it fires once as it hits the ground. Perry flies away, and Doofenshmirtz curses him before realizing he's burned his cobbler. He asks how the day can get any worse, and the rocket skiff promptly lands on him before being swept away by a wave.

Phineas has also concluded his story, but to Candace's chagrin, Linda is proud of the boys for teaching squirrels how to survive, and does not bust them. But before she can complain, Candace is hit by the Peach-Cobbler-inator's ray, and now only wants peach cobbler, which Linda happens to have made.

Memorable QuotesEdit

Phineas: (voiceover) It all started simply enough. I got up early to help Isabella earn her surf patch.

Isabella: Thanks for helping me earn my surf patch!
Phineas: (voiceover) And I told her it was no problem.
Phineas: No problem!
(Isabella looks annoyed at something)

Phineas: (voiceover) It was at that point that I decided to stop narrating.
Isabella: What's Rochambeau?

Phineas: Rock, Paper, Scissors.
Isabella: Why didn't he just say that?

Buford: (Angrily) In what universe would a piece of paper ever beat a rock?
Candace: (points at Phineas) Now, don't say another word until we get back. (she points at Ferb) And that goes for you, too.

(Candace walks away)
Phineas: That was ironic, because Ferb doesn't usually talk.

Candace: (off screen) Duh!
Linda: (waves) Hi, kids! (to Candace) All right, what's this all about?

Phineas: We're telling Ferb the story of what we did yesterday.
Linda: Oh, I love stories!
Candace: Oh, oh, it's not just stories, but full...dis-cloh-siah!

Linda: Okay.
Debater: (to Perry) You're right. (to judges) Judges, he's right. He's changed my entire world-view. And I thought that british kid was persuasive.
Candace: No, you can't! I want justice! I want-(a ray from Doofenshmirtz's Peach-Cobbler-inator hits Candace) Peach Cobbler.

  • Buford's other eye is pointed in the wrong direction. It should be pointed at Phineas and Ferb's mom.
  • When Buford steps on the wind-up car during Be a Squirrel, the hood is gray but when he shakes his head responding to the squirrel's failure, then the hood was back to tan which was the toy car's color.
  • When Phineas draws the checks, they are black at first, then when he lifts his pencil they are gray.
  • Doofenshmirtz says his contest victory was the first time he ever won something, but he won the Inator Creator contest in "Robot Rodeo." However, this may be the first time he won something legitimately instead of by default. It may also mean that this episode takes place before "Robot Rodeo."
