Best. Phineas and Ferb. EVER!

Excuse me a moment, while I give a /salute to some truly epic writing.

There is good writing, and then there is that miraculous moment when someone nails a line so well, it is instantly quotable.

A line of dialogue, a retort, a reply, a snarky comment that is so freaking spot on perfect that the second you hear it, you try and memorize it for later.

It becomes legend.

Tonight, the second part of the “Where’s Perry?” storyline played out on Phineas and Ferb.

Alex and I recorded it, and watched it together.

There came a moment, as Doctor Doofenschmirtz verbally sparred with Major Monogram, that such a line of dialogue happened.

It wasn’t just me. Major Monogram said it, and Alex and I both did a simultaneous spit take, then roared with uncontrollable laughter.

I won’t sully the moment by rendering it in cold, dead print, because with many of these moments, part of the perfection is the delivery. And the delivery was perfect.

If I’ve enticed you, I’m sure you’ll be able to find the episode soon enough, the internet seems made for spreading video like a virus.

But honestly… here’s to you, the writers and voice actors of Phineas and Ferb, for giving me a line of dialogue that was right up there with the best of them.

Yippee Kai Yay, Motherfuckers.

  1. *Sigh* I’ll have to search to try and find it, neither video is available to me… Me and the kids love Phineas and Ferb, glad to see I’m not the only grown-up who enjoys it.


  2. “Not available in this country” (UK). Can you enlighten me as to roughly where in the episode the golden moment is, please? It will help in narrowing the search :)


  3. It’s going to be on tonight, both parts 1 and 2, at 9pm on Disney channel (West coast at least). I set my Tivo. My kids are a little young for Phineas & Ferb so we don’t watch it as much as we used to before they came along. What’s that say about me?
