Dr. Phyllis Show is the twentieth episode of the third season of Drake & Josh. It aired on April 8, 2006.


Over the course of the Drake and Josh series, the two brothers have been fighting a lot lately, and Megan, getting sick of their fighting keeping her awake at night, gets them tickets to be on the Dr. Phyllis Show (an obvious parody of Dr. Phil and Ellen Degeneres combined). They discuss lots of bad things that have happened between them during the course of the show of how Drake not only take advantage of Josh, but also everyone else too of whoever he can, such as: Drake essentially damaging, but not completely destroying Josh's relationship with his Yudonian e-pal Yooka, with the so-called "friendship ceremony" that was revealed to be a marriage ceremony not long after the ceremony was completed, as well as the various pranks that their sister Megan has pulled on them and the arguments that she has instigated between them.

At one point later on, Josh mentions that one of Drake's biggest flaws is his habit of taking advantage of not just him, but other people for his own personal gain, and reveals to Dr. Phyllis that Drake once dated Liza Tupper purely to make his ex-girlfriend, Tori, jealous, and Drake adds that Liza was "not the smartest wonton on the pu pu platter" and a terrible kisser. After Drake says this, Dr. Phyllis reveals that Liza's her daughter, and of course, becomes understandably furious with Drake, but goes too far when she pulls Drake out of his chair and proceeds to start strangling him and does the same with Josh, but with a sissor-lock.

When Drake and Josh get home, they reminisce all the good times they had together, but soon get into an argument over soda. Drake accidentally got diet and wants Josh to switch with him, but Josh refuses to do so.


Intro scene

Drake: (angry) Okay, you want to know something about Josh?

Josh: (angry) Yeah, I'll tell you a little secret about Drake!

Drake: He can be the most irritating human on the planet.

Josh: Sometimes he aggravates me to a point where I just want to go (growls and does a strangling motion with his hands)

Drake: (anger rising) I'm not doing too good in English, right?

Josh: (anger rising) You know Drake hates my girlfriend Mindy, right?

Drake: So last week he goes up to our teacher...

Josh: So on Saturday, Mindy's walking up our driveway...

Drake: And Josh tells her I should have a tutor!

Josh: And Drake sprays her with the hose!

Drake: (furious) A tutor?!

Josh: (furious) A hose!

Drake: I can't take a shower without finding his hair on the soap!

Josh: He pees... near the toilet!

Both: Sometimes, he just drives me insane! (both cool off afterward)

Third scene

Producer: Okay, everyone stand by. In 5, 4, 3, 2...

Dr. Phyllis Tupper: (walks on stage) Hello, I'm Dr. Phyllis Tupper, and welcome to Dr. Phyllis.


Dr. Phyllis Tupper: Today's topic is on Bickering Brothers. First I'd like you to meet Drake Parker.

Josh: W-Wait. Why does he get introduced first?

Drake: (getting annoyed) Why don't you just quit your whining?

Josh: Irritant. (turns to the camera) My name's Josh Nichols.


Dr. Phyllis Tupper: Well, obviously there's been a lot of bickering going on between you two boys. Why don't you tell me about it?

Drake: Well, I'd love to, but I don't know where to start with this kid.

Josh: Clear your schedule, doc.

(both start shouting and arguing at once and flashback sequence starts)

Scene from "We're Married?"

Josh: ...So wonderful you're married. (closes the door and turns to yell at Drake) Drake! You promised me you'd back off! How dare you marry my e-woman?!

Drake: Hey, don't get mad at me! You told me this was a friendship ceremony!

Josh: Well, I thought it was!

Drake: Well, we're really good friends now!

Josh: I'm-I'm, sure you're not actually married.

Drake: Uh, yeah, we are! You heard me say (repeats foreign language).

Scene from "Foam Finger"

Josh: Your room?

Drake: (to Josh) That's right. Since my old room is inhabited by an immature beast.

Josh: This is not your room.

Drake: Oh yeah? Then why is my bed in here? Why is my guitar in here? And more importantly, why are you in here?

Josh: Because this is the living room and uh... (points to himself) yeah, living!

Drake: Maybe, but not for long.

Josh: (getting angry) Okay, you want to tussle?

Josh: You sicken me!

Drake: I hope they cancel Oprah!

Josh: Take that back!

Drake: You want a butt full of foot?

Josh: Bring it, Parker!

Drake: You bring it!

(flashback ends)

Dr. Phyllis Tupper: Well, clearly there is a lot of fighting that goes on between you two brothers.

Drake: Oh, yeah. And he's always starting it.

Josh: Beg to differ.

Dr. Phyllis Tupper: Uh, Josh, Drake is speaking right now, and you need to respect that, because if you don't respect him, how will he ever respect you?

Drake: (in a mocking and taunting tone) Yes, Josh. How?

Josh: He's not gonna respect me. He never does!

Dr. Phyllis Tupper: Do not use the word "never," because "never" is just "ever" with an "n" in front of it. (turning to Drake) Drake, please, continue telling us a little bit more about Josh.

Drake: Glad to, Phyllis. The main thing about my brother Josh is he's a spaz!

(Josh turns to Drake, visibly angry because of what he said)

Drake: And if you don't believe me, let me share a few memories with you.

Josh: Oh, and you think you're a walk through a fresh meadow?

Drake: See? Who says things like that?

Josh: (annoyed with Drake) You hush! This is my time. Now, you want to talk about aggravating? Let me tell you a couple stories about my brother Drake.

(flashback sequence starts)

Josh: (angry) I do not bicker. I just respond to his abnormal, irritant behavior!

Drake: (scoffs in an annoyed manner) You're the bickerer!

Josh: (furious) Liar!

Dr. Phyllis Tupper: Okay, boys, now, I find that when there is tension between two siblings, sometimes that tension can be coming from another source.

Drake: (confused) I don't understand.

  • Walter Nichols and Audrey Parker-Nichols were absent in this episode, though they appeared in flashbacks.
  • Dr. Phyllis is an obvious parody of Dr. Phil and Ellen Degeneres.
  • The episode shows no clips from Season 1.
  • This is the last episode where Josh is obese.
  • This is the last episode of the First Generation.
  • Liza Tupper is mentioned for the first time since Playing the Field.
  • This is the second episode to feature clips from previous episodes, the first being Peruvian Puff Pepper.
  • Near the end of the episode, Drake and Josh claim that Dr. Phyllis only made them talk about only the bad times between but that's untrue, she specificaly said that she wanted them to talk about happier times they shared with each other before the ad break, but they just simply responded negatively without a second thought, so it's likely they forgot she said that.
  • At the very beginning of the episode, Megan calls Drake and Josh clowns instead of boobs.
  • Mindy's absent and not seen in this episode but she's only seen in the past episode Playing the Field which Drake and Josh flashback to in the clip show.


  • At the beginning of this episode, Megan said that it was 11:45pm and after she gave Drake and Josh the tickets, said that they would go the next day after school. Would Audrey and Walter really let Drake and Josh stay up as late as 11:45pm on a school night?
    • They probably did not know as they could be asleep.
  • At the start of the episode when Drake is playing golf in their room, Josh said that Drake destroyed his Kindergarden diploma and that there is no proof. Drake only destroyed the frame not the diploma itself.
  • Drake should have realized that Dr. Phyllis is related to Liza as she said her full name, Phyllis Tupper, but he could have also believed that she was related to different family with the last name Tupper. It is a common thing in real life: there are families with the same last name, but are not related to each other.
  • At the end of the episode, Drake mentions how Dr. Phyliss did not make them think of the good times they had, but just before the first commercial break, Dr. Phyllis tells them to think of happier times.
    • They probably were too focused on the negatives to pay attention.
  • When Dr. Phyllis fights Drake and Josh on set, a man is heard off-screen yelling "Security!". It is surprising that security didn't actually arrive on set and break up the fight, although they could've arrived to break up the fight off screen.
