Invasion of the Ferb Snatcher/Ain't No Kiddie Ride - S2-E28

Character mistake: In 'Ain't No Kiddie Ride' Carl reminds Major Monogram that he has no sense of smell and that he was born without nostrils noting it on his resume. But in 'Brain Dead' when Major Monogram sees Perry wearing a face mask he points out that Carl is also a germaphobe. Carl corrects him saying "It's not the germs sir, it's the garlic smell." He wouldn't be able to smell anything since he has no nostrils. (01:10:00 - 01:35:00)
