Recap / Phineas And Ferb The Fast And The Phineas

Phineas and Ferb decide to get involved in racing, so they trick out the family car, with Ferb making a remote, since the boys don't know how to drive.

Meanwhile, Perry The Platypus must thwart Doofenshmirtz and his plan to deflate everything in the tri-state area, thus giving himself a monopoly on inflating things.


  • Artistic License Physics: Hooking up the car remote to a larger battery makes the car go faster.
  • Big "YES!": Candace's first comment when she thinks Linda busted Phineas and Ferb but she actually thinks they washed her car.
  • Cannot Spit It Out: A lot of problems could've been avoided if Candace simply told Linda about what happened to her car or rather, take a picture of the car with her phone to show her.
  • Crazy-Prepared: When giving a clue that beating Doofenshmirtz would involve cheese, Perry opens a suitcase filled with cheese, and several cheese launching devices.
  • Early Installment Weirdness: Candace's has a total of five busting attempts in this episode, making her role more malicious than usual. This is dropped in later episodes.
  • Exhausted Eye Bags: Candace has these right after the broadcast to the race gets shorted out by Doofenshmirtz's blimp, and again when she realizes the car is back to normal.
  • Iris Out
  • Jaw Drop: Candace, at the very end.
  • Karma Houdini: Since Ferb is the one who's operating the car with the remote while Phineas is the driving, this is considered cheating; therefor Phineas and Ferb would've been disqualified. They manage to get away with it, but it's unknown if they still have the trophy since Linda never saw it.
  • Left the Background Music On: Phineas himself is playing the electric guitar, with Ferb on keyboard.
  • Mood Whiplash:
    Linda: (shocked) You mean...they...
    (Candace laughs, thinking her brothers are about to get busted)
    Linda: (excited) They washed my car!?!
  • Nobody Can Die: Spoofed with a bunch of car wrecks, and then all the drivers waving and saying they are okay.
  • Oh, Crap!: Candace, as usual. Her biggest one is at the very end when Linda believes Phineas and Ferb washed her car, complete with a Jaw Drop.
  • Pimped-Out Car
  • Shoo Out the Clowns: Right after Linda goes back inside before the car reappears, Candace vanishes until after the Fireside Girls appear. In addition, when Linda fails to see the race onscreen, Candace vanishes again until the race starts.
  • Stealth Hi/Bye: When Ferb presses the red button on the remote, the car blasts upward right before Linda comes out; when Linda returns inside, the car lands back on the road.
    • "Candace, this is a dandruff commercial, is there something you want to tell me?" *Cuts immediately to the racetrack*
  • Theme Tune Cameo: The theme song plays at the very end.
  • Tim Taylor Technology: Hooking up the car remote to a larger battery for extra juice.
  • Unusually Uninteresting Sight: Announcer: "And there's the Doofenshmirtz Evil Incorporated blimp!"
  • Up to Eleven: Happens when Ferb uses a special technique causing the car to go super fast.
  • The Voiceless: Ferb doesn't speak at all, making this the first time he does not say anything.
