Perry and Doofenshmirtz
- The show constantly, constantly, plays Perry the Platypus and his "nemesis" Dr. Doofenshmirtz as some sort of dysfunctional couple. It's ostensibly Foe Yay, but they are remarkably civil to each other even during fights, and on the many occasions they work together it becomes obvious that if it weren't for their respective weird employments they would be closest friends at the very least.
- "It's About Time" is probably the most blatant example, playing Doofenshmirtz getting a new nemesis as close to him having an affair as physically possible, complete with them on a relationship talk show together, and even has a break up song and a remembering past love song!
- "Swiss Family Phineas" has a brief gag where Perry and Doofenshmirtz get thrown in a BIG laundry... cue costume change, with a wedding dress and tuxedo. Doofenshmirtz is the wife.
- And in "Gaming the System", after Doofenshmirtz zaps Perry with the Ball-Gown-inator, he can't stop going on about how elegant Perry looks.
You know, Perry the Platypus, that dress sort of suits you, if, you know, you just accentuate the positive, as they say... Um... I'm going to stop talking now
, I'm moving into a weird area.
- Something similar to this happens again in the episode "Giants" where Doof makes an -inator that makes people be wearing just underwear. As well as the obvious fact that he himself is only wearing his underwear during this sequence, when a beam hits Perry, Doof actually tells him that he "pulls it off."
- In "Nerds of a Feather" after Doofenshmirtz fails to get his show "Doof and Puss" on the air because he wouldn't let the producer give the platypus a girlfriend, we instead get the show "The Platypus And His Girlfriend", with the girlfriend seeming to play the same role as Doof did in the original show.
- Not to mention the smirk on Perry's face when Doofenshmirtz adamantly refuses to give the platypus a girlfriend.
- In "Bubble Boys", Doofenshmirtz is revealed to have Perry-print underwear.
- It's revealed in "I, Brobot" that Doofenshmirtz gave Perry a key to his apartment.
- In "She's The Mayor," there's a blink-and-you'll-miss-it sight gag of Perry and Doof dressed as a married couple◊.
- Perry sometimes acts like the other half of a couple when it comes to Doofenshmirtz doing something for his daughter: helping him even in the most ridiculous plans, even if it involves a potentially dangerous -inator.
- In "Ferb Latin", Norm walks through a wall rather than taking the door out of Doof's apartment, and Doofenshmirtz turns to Perry and says "He gets that from you, you know", much like a disapproving parent accusing their partner of teaching their child bad habits.
- After a sick Doofenshmirtz ends up falling asleep on the floor after another failed attempt with his new inator, Perry comes up to him and....puts a blanket over him. Awwwww.
- In "Mom's in the House", when Doofenshmirtz is duplicating Perry's arms, he mentions on more than one occasion that the arms are rather cute.
- When Doofenshmirtz has to retake the (insanely dangerous) Drusselstein driving test in order to renew his license, he asks Perry to hold his hand because being with Perry makes him feel safer.
- In "Meapless in Seattle", Perry follows Doofenshmirtz to Seattle, where Doof has been taking regular "excursions". When Peter the Panda shows up (with coffee for Doofenshmirtz), Perry's body language and Doof's excuses come off as a cheating lover trying to deny an affair after being caught.
- In the very last shot of "Meapless in Seattle" before the credits, it shows Peter and Perry on what seems to be a date◊.
- As the series progresses, Doof, Perry, Norm and Vanessa seem to be forming a very strange blended family. Vanessa seems to treat Perry almost like a second father, and calls Norm her brother.
- Perry and Doofenshmirtz's hot dog vs. bratwurst duel in "Backyard Aquarium", particularly when Doof gets slapped in the face (repeatedly) with Perry's wiener.
- In "This is Your Backstory" we get to see some of the photos◊ Perry keeps in his wallet. All of them depict Perry having fun with Doofenshmirtz.
- In "Happy New Year", the two are dancing◊ with each other. This isn't like "Out of Toon" where they were zapped with a ray that made them dance - they CHOSE to dance with each other.
- And now Disney Channel's YouTube has posted this. Yes, that is a Taylor Swift song about a relationship.
- Doof once gave Perry a trap hidden in a ringbox.
- The scene at the end of "Sidetracked." While watching Niagara Falls, Perry places a hand on Doof's hand◊.
- In "Lost in Danville" Peter the Panda's nemesis kidnaps Doof because he's jealous that Peter went after him. Doof ends up singing a song about how communicating is vital in relationships.
