Recap / Phineas And Ferb Last Train To Bustville

Go To

While the boys and their friends create hot air balloons and have a race, Candace is inspired by an engineer's attitude and decides to finally "give up" busting her brothers. Meanwhile, Doofenshmirtz finds a dodo egg and thinks it will be a fierce, rampaging monster when it hatches, only to discover the exact opposite.

Tropes in this episode:

  • Broken Record: "Give up! Blah blah! Give up! Blah blah blah blah blah! Give up! Blah blah blah! Give up!"
  • Advertisement:
  • Impairment Shot: Linda's view of Phineas and Ferb's balloons placed directly behind their clothes on a rack, which lets her assume it's really them.
  • No Peripheral Vision: Lampshaded; Linda says she needs contact lenses to help her see because she cannot see very well without them.
  • Offscreen Teleportation: When Isabella sees Phineas trying to fix the loose steering wheel, he stops mid-sentence and looks back, and the camera pans to reveal Isabella somehow got into his balloon.
  • Pun-Based Title: The title is a pun on the Monkees' hit, "Last Train to Clarksville".
  • Status Quo Is God: In the end after helping the train get up Gearheart Summit, Candace decides she won't give up on busting her brothers having learned her lesson.

How well does it match the trope?
