At the Googolplex Mall, Zack and Melissa are waiting for Milo at the food court. Milo get in an elevator with Lydia, Scott, and Coach Mitchell when the elevator stops and most of them start to freak out.

At the Murphy Residence, Dakota is thinking about Cavendish and Doofenshmirtz brings their lunch. Dakota wants to know what Cavendish was thinking and Doof agrees to help him.

At the mall, Milo calls for help and tells the others they are in for a wait. Coach is upset due to missing belt testing day at his lasso class. He tries to get out via the emergency hatch and Scott, but fails.

Back at the house, Doof clones Cavendish. However the clone is Cavendish‘s head on a platypus body.

Back at the mall, Lydia is host an improve session with the others. Scott and Milo eagerly participate while Coach does not.

In the Murphy’s backyard, Dakota and Doof are arguing about Cavenpuss and they ask him what the real Cavendish would do if he went rouge. After the two talk and he expresses his fear that he may never see Cavendish again, Dakota realizes that his missing partner was was looking for a UFO.

Back in the elevator, the finish and they play two truth and a lie when they fall between floor. Milo suggests they save themselves. He has Lydia pry open the doors with her unusually strong fingernails, has Scott‘s hard skull keep it open, and Coach’s budding lassoing skills to pul them to the next floor. They plan succeeds and they escape before the elevator crashes. He meets up with Zack and Melissa and bids the others farewell and has them meet up for an improve group the following Tuesday.

The three meet up with Doof and Dakota in Milo‘s backyard when they tell the kids they found that to find Cavendish they need to find a UFO. Milo takes them to the Octalian Ship where they find Cavendish petrified. Dakota frees him and Cavendish tells them their coming back from Milo.

  • Third episode with a one-word title, after "Athledecamathalon" and "Freefall".
  • Upcoming episode
    There appears to have been a animation change during the making of this episode. In this teaser image, the screens behind them are displaying alien gibberish. But, in the actual episode the screens are covered in pictures from past episodes.
  • This episode shows that Scott has "had" children with Mildred.
  • Despite Doof claiming it would take "all afternoon" to clone a human body, it has been seen in the episode Run Away Runway that Doof can clone himself much quicker than that. As such, it is likely that Doof simply thought it would be funny to see Cavendish's head on Perry's body.


  • Phineas and Ferb - A large portion of the episode takes place at the infamous Googolplex Mall.
  • Pokémon - During the cloning sequence, two of the shapes that appear in the cloninator resemble the Pokémon Haxarus and Chesnaut.
