Added DiffLines:

* SuddenlyVoiced: Ferb spends a majority of the episode being the SilentBob, however, in the first of many instances, he suddenly says in a sophisticated British accent, "They're the only mammals to lay eggs", in reference to platypuses.


The pilot for ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'', and the set up for all the plots to follow. Enter the Flynn-Fletcher family, as the snarky red-head Phineas remarks that he doesn’t want to spend this summer lazing around, so he and his brother Ferb set out to do something spectacular. And by spectacular, we mean build a roller-coaster. Meanwhile, their sister Candace, whose been put in charge (at least in the case of a crashed satellite) desperately tries to get her mom to see the unbelievable contraption they’ve built. Her attempts to do so are accidentally foiled by her pet platypus, Perry, who is actually a secret agent trying to thwart his nemesis Doctor Doofenshmirtz in his attempts to cover the entire Tri-State Area in tin foil. Why? Because he wants to use magnets to reverse the rotation of the Earth, duh.

Added DiffLines:

** Doof has a bit of a vaguely European accent which is all but dropped in later episodes.

Added DiffLines:

** Phineas appears to care more about profiting off his invention than just having the "best day ever", as evidenced by his line, "We should've charged more."

Added DiffLines:

** Monogram's message to Agent P appears to be prerecorded rather than a live video feed, as evidenced by the "Incoming Message" screen and Agent P clicking an envelope icon to receive his mission.


* OverTheTopRollercoaster: Phineas and Ferb built one that starts with a massive drop, and cuts through the city, with many crazy and impossible turns. Then, due to Perry and Doofenshmirtz's fight, the entire track gets moved from its original position and as a result, the coaster car goes off the rails. It's thrown into the sky, is carried across the country into Mt. Rushmore, gets flung across the Atlantic into Paris, and then flies all the way into space, where the coaster then does a final descent towards the boys' home. "Coolest Coaster Ever" indeed.

* BrickJoke: Candace asks Linda to put her in charge by asking, "What if a satellite falls out of orbit and crashes into the house?" Later, when the boys' coaster gets thrown into space, a satellite passes by, and Phineas remarks, "You know, if that thing crashes into earth, Candace is in charge."

Added DiffLines:

* BaitAndSwitchCharacterIntro: In the first scene, Perry is depicted as an average, mindless pet, with Phineas stating "Well, he is a platypus. They don't do much." A couple scenes later, Perry stands upright and sneaks into an underground lair, revealing his true identity as a secret agent.


* FailedASpotCheck: When Candace comes home with Linda near the end only for the boys to suddenly show up when Candace looks away for a moment, neither of them notice the coaster train flaming in the tree, ''right before them.''
