He actually yells "J'accuse!", which is French for 'I accuse".

Interesting... the subtitles are wrong on my disk.

Which they mostly are.  Use transcripts instead.

I was basing it off the transcrips on TLZ so I could be wrong but that's what I've always heard.

TLZ got their transcripts from The Neutral Planet (RIP), which are regarded as the best transcripts available.  Which is also why we copied them for the Infosphere.

More importantly it would be funnier if he did say acute.

Why of course it would! Not to you because you're not a TRUE nerd but to us REAL nerds it is.

Hey! I'm plenty nerd! D:

... It's just, in addition to being a bit of a math/science nerd, I'm also a history/linguistics nerd. It's a different branch of nerdom but it's nerdom all the same!

Well... I guess a nerd is a nerd. I'm more of a science nerd, but math and linguistics references never get past me. But for history it depends on WHAT history, being Canadian I tend to get references and inside jokes towards Canada. Canada jokes never bothered me before because some of them WERE nerdy. (Except that stupid episode of King Of The Hill, all it was was them saying Canada sucks over and over with no nerd appeal). I LOVE nerd-humour of all kinds but science/astronemy/astrobiology/astrophysics, ext is better prefered for me then history and linguistics. (Math is a close second).

"Would you censor the Venus de Venus just because you can see her spewers?"
"Oh, it's filthy!"

Did the writers make up the word "spewers"? (I'm assuming [i.e., hoping] it doesn't have anything to do with vomiting, in this sense.)

I used to think that it was a legitimate biological term for a body part of some obscure organism, like 'flagellum' or 'maxilla', but when I tried to look it up I found that it doesn't seem to exist.

Don't hate me, Trinity.  I'm just the messenger.

Please explain the french joke to me. I get acute in terms of an acute angle. I don't really know why zoid would be using french.

Yeah, the acute thing would work better because isn't French supposed to be a dead language?

Then again this IS Zoidberg that we're talking about. Maybe he learned French for a meatball or something, he would do anything for food.

Wow, someone actually caught that!  They even mentioned on the commentary for that episode that they wasn't sure anyone got the Zener diode joke.

Yeah, one of the things I really like about the show is that there are many jokes you won't notice until your second or third viewing andI wouldn't have gotten that zener diode joke had I not happened to choose that particular field to study which makes me wonder how many jokes have gone over my head.

I not only got it, I pointed it out to my friend who usually misses these things, only to be told in a rather hurt voice that he "got" it and there wasn't any point to me trying to make him feel stupid. laff

Another good semi-nerd joke in that episode is "tubes! you're older than you said you were". The fact the any tube technology has survived 1000 years in the future makes me laugh.

Some more good ones are:

The reference to the Turing halting problem in Leela's Homeworld when Farnsworth says "Of course, even if it is possible to analyse the message, there's no way of knowing how long it would take. It could take an hour or it could take a hundred million years. "

The reference to the relationship between the complexity classes "P" and "NP" in Put Your Head on my Shoulder:


And the reference to discrete math also in Put Your Head on my Shoulder:

1729 can you explain your username?
i did like the discrete one. and had no idea about the complexity classes.

11011000001 is the binary form of 1729 (The Hardy-Ramanujan number, or the smallest number expressible as the sum of two positive cubes in two ways).
I picked it because it combines math and computer science (both of which I enjoy), and I thought it would be appropriate for this board because both binary and 1729 are referenced several times in the show.

Yes, the discrete math one is good, but my favorites are still the Aleph-naught-plex(previously referenced by hobbitboy) and the Heisenberg uncertainty principle(which began this thread).

Here's my favorite Science Joke (related to one of Farnsworth's inventions):

Professor Farnsworth: [Farnsworth is showing Cubert some of his inventions] And this is my Universal Translator. Unfortunately, so far it only translates into an incomprehensible dead language.
Cubert: [into the translator's microphone] Hello.
Universal Translator: Bonjour!
Professor Hubert Farnsworth: Crazy gibberish!

"You changed the outcome by measuring it!" is one of my favorite lines ever. I'm still trying to find a deeper meaning in the name of the store 7^11 though it disappoints me somewhat that I can't find some coded message no matter how hard I try.

I think someone already mentioned the joke when Leela is running down the stairs to get something (what was it?) in the Less Than Hero episode, and Fry says "No! You can't fall fast enough!"

Ya, It's the quantum gemerald they're after and fry jumps and  tries to catch it and leela is like "no, you can't fall fast enough!" So she runs down the stairs and makes it to the bottem before he does.

Hey, some of you newer people are alright! I love that line, I laughed and laughed while my friend sat there confused.

Self-serving comment - you're one of the newer people.

And they're mostly not.

The problem with science jokes; few people I know get them, even in my class which is heavy on maths and physics.

Edit: Which is why I love PEEL!

Whatever, I wrote that after I played four soccer games in a tournament so my head wasn't really all together. (also I meant the "much newer" people)

That's the reason I gave my friend for my love of "the internet".
