The Doctor Zone Files is the fifth episode in the first season of Milo Murphy's Law. It first aired on October 17, 2016.[1]

Episode Synopsis

Sara wants to go with Milo to see The Doctor Zone Files Movie, based on their favorite show, but worries about potential problems. [2]


Sara, Milo, Zack, and Melissa are seen wrapping up a marathon of The Doctor Zone Files in preparation to see the movie that is opening that same day. Sara takes custody of the tickets, fearing that they will come to an ill fate given the many mishaps that tend to occur around Milo. Zack and Melissa are then treated to a brief history of the series, which has been running for over fifty years, prior to standing in line at the film. While Sara takes numerous precautions against Murphy's Law, Zack and Melissa become involved in a discussion with Doctor Zone fans Wally and Kris regarding Dr. Zone's sidekick, Time Ape.

An attempt by Milo and Sara to buy pistachios from Balthazar Cavendish and Vinnie Dakota while waiting to enter the theater results in the pistachio stand exploding into the air, followed by the mysterious disappearance of the operators. When Melissa and Zack theorize that Time Ape is in fact Dr. Zone's long-lost brother, Wally and Kris are infuriated, prompting Sara to intervene before a fight breaks out. In doing so, she inadvertently leaves the tickets on the back of a car just before it pulls away, leaving the group unable to attend the showing. Sara does gain an appreciation for Milo, who has always tried to make up for the mishaps that occur around him, and the four are able to view the movie after all once the falling pistachio stand takes out the side wall of the theatre.

  • The Doctor Zone Files closely resembles the TV series Doctor Who---they both involve time travel, and both have been going on for 50 years.


  • Milo's older sister, Sara Murphy, makes her debut in this episode.
  • Several of the people in line outside the theater appear in the same "Speckie" or "Finkie" costumes from the Phineas and Ferb episode Nerds of a Feather.
  • When the Doctor Zone episode ends with a slide saying "The end... ?", It was a reference to the Phineas and Ferb episode, "Invasion of the Ferb Snatchers".
  • Whether it's this episode or The Note, this is the first time "Weird" Al Yankovic voices somebody other than Milo's.
  • Karma: Sara got preoccupied with Murphy's Law and lost the tickets to the movie premiere.


  • At the beginning of the episode, when Sara is watching The Doctor Zone Files, her pajama top has no image, but when she and Milo are dancing at the end of the marathon, there is an image of Time Ape on it.
  • In parts of The Doctor Zone Files intro, Doctor Zone has a right hand instead of a present.
  • After Sara and Milo go to get some pistachios, the barricades that Sara assembled are gone.
  • While watching the movie, Milo is not wearing the clock headpiece he was wearing while in-line for the movie.
  • Milo is not wearing his Time Ape headpiece at the end.
