And the week is rounded off by this heartwarming family tale from Nicky.
Miranda: Da-dy! I told you, no more kissing until you dispense with that abominable fuzz!
[Phineas and Ferb theme song]
TV: Agent P! The evil Doctor Doofenshmirtz is up to his old tricks! For reasons unknown to us, he’s bought up eighty percent of the country’s tin foil!
Miranda: Doctor Doofenshmirtz is the worst person in the world.
Jon: Now, honey, remember how we talked about…well, actually, you may have a point there.
Shock and awe! What’s going on? Who’s the kid? Why the beard? How does Stephen feel about all this?
Answers to all of these questions (well, except the beard one) coming up, in…In Care Of Thee
Side story! This opening scene takes place several months before the Rally to Restore Humanity, and will look familiar to anyone who’s seen episode 10 of the Hellsing TV anime. (If you haven’t, please track it down, because it’s beautiful.)
The title is from The Tempest: “I have done nothing but in care of thee / Of thee, my dear one! thee, my daughter.”
Miranda: Oh, no! I’m late!
Good morning, Daddy!
Jon: You’re five minutes late, Mandy. But don’t sweat it. We have TiVo for a reason.
