Guess Who Got to Watch a REALLY Great Movie?

I did. At long last, I have seen Phineas and Ferb: Across the Second Dimension!

The one thing that drives me crazy about a lot of animated movies is that they're always funny in the beginning, but then they're all serious at the end and they don't include any jokes at all. Not that there's anything wrong with being serious, but if you've got plenty of laughs at the beginning, why can't you have some at the end, too? Across the Second Dimension, however, didn't make those mistakes. They had TONS of jokes, all the way through, particularly for those who've seen multiple episodes. If you haven't seen it yet, WATCH IT! You can get it on DVD or find it on youtube. And now, without further ado, quotes! (You were all waiting for this one, weren't you?)

Dr. Doofenshmirtz: Again, Ow. No, it's okay, platypuses don't typically like me.

Dr. Doofenshmirtz: You know, I can't help but notice that your scar goes over your eye patch.
Dr. Doofenshmirtz (2nd Dimension): Yeah?
Yeah?Doofenshmirtz: …Nothing.

Phineas: (After he says "you're a secret agent!? the second time) Anyone else here living a bizarre double life? (Ferb raises his hand) Put your hand down, Ferb. (Ferb lowers his hand)

Phineas: Perry! W-We came to rescue you.
The camera zooms out, showing Norm Bots surrounding them.
Phineas: So far it isn't going as well as we hoped.

Seeing 2nd Dimension Candace fight the Norm bots
Phineas: Can you do that?
Candace: Well, Apparently.

Dr. Doofenshmirtz: Oh you caught it! Here, unlock me.
Candace: Are you even paying attention?
Dr. Doofenshmirtz: (looks at the lava) Oh that's right the lava, it can wait.

Dr. Heinz Doofenshmirtz: If I had a nickel for every time I've been doomed by a puppet, I would have two nickels.

Phineas Flynn: All this time, I didn't think you could spell "platypus" without "us."
Ferb Fletcher: Well, you can, but it would just be "platyp."

Selenda: What!? You're leaving us!?
Nicki T.: Taking a break would be a better phrase to use, but, yes, basically.
Zora: WHAT! Don't you like us?
Nicki T.: Really, I DO like you and all. But your story isn't working. I'm going to do the Other Worlds curriculum and do a sci fi, then I'll come back to you. I need a break from fantasy.
Aidenn: Well, I guess it means I stay around longer!
Talia: Yeah!
Nicki T.: Yes, I suppose it does. Would you like to meet your replacements?
Zora: Well, even if I don't, you're going to introduce us to them.
Nicki T.: Yes, I suppose I would.
(Enter Eric, Amber and Blaze.)
Amber: Hey!
Eric: Uh, hi.
Blaze: Hi!
Selenda: Hello.
Amber: You don't seem to like us.
Aidenn: Sorry. We're just a little... we're in shock. Wait, how could you tell?
Blaze: Amber reads minds.
Aidenn: How is that possible?
Amber (blushing): Did you HAVE to tell them that? It's a bit complicated, but basically, I have something worked into my brain that allows my mind to reach out for brain waves and thought patterns. I can transmit and recieve them at will.
Zora: Sorry, we're just a little... well, Aidenn said it best. Shocked. She just dropped the bombshell.
Blaze: They had those in the Middle Ages?
Zora (shoves him over): Watch it! I'm a princess where I live, and if anyone knocks it, I tend to loose my temper.
Blaze: My apologies, your highness.
(Talia giggles. Zora taps her on the shoulder rather hard.)
Zora: It's not funny, Talia. You are my sister, after all.
(Amber and Selenda stand facing each other.)
Selenda: You are my temporary replacement?
Amber: Temporary. Your story isn't quite working for Nicki, so she's giving you a break.
Selenda: And that is comforting how?
Amber: You get to come back.
Ivar: I'm not sure if she wants to.
Nicki T.: Haha.
Ivar: Well, so long.
Aidenn: Out, out, brief candle! Life's but a walking shadow,
A poor player who struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
And then is heard no more.
Nicki T.: I didn't know you read Shakespeare.
Aidenn: I don't. I'm just a figment of your imagination. You do.
Nicki T.: Oh, right.
Aiden: Goodbye.
Zora: I'll be seeing you.
Talia: Well, see you later.
Selenda: Farewell.
(They walk out the door. Zora wipes away a tear.)
Nicki T.: Don't worry! I'll come back.
Amber: Your characters must love you.
(from outside)
Ivar: YIPEE! We're out of her clutches!
Zora: Guess who brought gummy worms! Crank the music, Aidenn!
(Classical music begins to play.)
Zora: Are you STILL trying to please Nicki by listening to music she can see you listening to? I heard the Owl City yesterday!
("Swimming in Miami" blares from the next room.)
Talia: Let's have some FUN!
Selenda: I could use a break.
(Nicki T. turns to look at her characters. They are glancing at each other.)
Nicki T.: They make it sound worse than it is.
Zora: Come on! I FINALLY get to heal from reading her synopsis! Imagine! Finishing off AIDENN, of all people! And Tarid! And putting Talia into a coma!
(Amber, Eric, and Blaze look as if their worse suspicions were confirmed.)
Nicki T.: So, maybe they weren't.
