Phineas is like Cagney’s shadow.
For those familiar with the UK show “Only Fools and Horses”, an episode called The Longest Night has a character Lennox describe himself as The Shadow. He quotes the following verse in explanation of his nickname:
They seek him here, they seek him there/ those policemen seek him everywhere/ is he in heaven or is he in hell/ that dammed elusive… sh-a-a-a-a-dow.
For Phineas I would substitute “elusive” with “troublesome”! Also, it does not take long to find him as he is usually beside Cagney.
