Went back and watched some of the first episodes the other day. Realised the only times the professor said 'but I'm already in my pyjamas' was in the first and second episodes. Srsly, why stop?

This was brought up somewhere else recently too. I'm with you, I liked that line and thought it was gonna be a good catchphrase. The only reasons for discontinuing it that I can think of is maybe they didn't want the Professor to have two catchphrases or maybe they just didn't think it was funny enough to keep doing.

I don't know if anyone mentioned this before, but in Space Pilot 3000, when Leela was chasing Bender and Fry, she calls into her arm band, which is on her left arm, to the police about their whereabouts.  In every episode afterwards her arm band is on her right arm.

I believe they note that as being a goof in the commentary.

After watching How Hermes Requisitioned His Groove Back dozens of times over the course of a dozen years, I finally just noticed that, during the poker game, Zoidberg seems to think they're playing strip poker! laff When they do they time lapse fade, Zoidberg is suddenly in an undershirt and boxers. wink

It is also the only time in that episode where it appears on her left arm.  So yes, it is a mistake.

I always thought he kept losing his money so he had to bet his clothes instead.  Because he is so poor.

When I first started watching, I figured out Fry was from the past but I wasn't sure if he was supposed to be from our time or several hundred years behind. I was basing this on how in Mother's Day he mentions using a can opener but he can barely remember the wheel.

Well, he is missing an entire brainwave. Anyway, his 90s clothes should've gave it away.

I agree. There's an expression in English called "losing your shirt" which can refer to gambling or business ventures (which are in themselves gambles) - the idea being that you have lost everything, even the clothing you were wearing. Plus, practically every poker game in a tv show ends in someone wagering a non-cash item like their business/car/wedding ring, so Zoidy could have wagered his clothing in desperation. Why not?

Edit - From the Infosphere transcript:
Quote
Zoidberg: I can't spell anything with these cards.

    [Time Lapse. The game continues and Zoidberg has lost the shirt off his back. Bender enjoys a winning streak as he wears Zoidberg's shirt and has a few piles of chips in front of him. He hums.]

I also remember hearing the professor saying "Well, I am already in my pajamas." and thought it would be used for the rest of the series. I also only realised after rewatching The Duh Vinci Code that the professor repeatedly says 'My God' so many times that it was hilarious.

What made me realize it was intentional was seeing that Bender's fingers were still there. If it was a mistake, the animators would surely catch it.

As taken from the Infosphere:

*When the crew returns from the 4th Dimension, Bender actually falls to the back of the ship first. The order Bender-Amy-Fry-Hermes-Leela-and then Bender again. You can see his arm for a moment behind Amy's, and then it disappears and he falls again moments later.
**To further this goof, when they get up Leela is actually on the top of the crew pile.
***Leela could have crawled to get in front of Bender off-screen, while the whale was pulling the ship.
****Writer Eric Rogers stated on Twitter that Bender hitting the wall twice was intentional, but it is unknown if he is telling the truth or not.
*****When asked again, he confirmed it was 'a joke on a joke'.
******Bender falling twice could be a 4th dimensional effect/phenomenon. Also applies to Skylab being in the whale, since it fell to Earth in 1979.

Just found out right now:

In Bender's Game, Leela becoming a centaur was of course due to her mutant origin (mutating again, not quite human, etc...). Fry pointing out he enjoyed riding Leegola the over expected, one-time dirty joke...

But it just dawned to me that Fry riding on Leela was also a reference to her pilot job, responsible to transport the others, so to speak...

(Not the most obvious and important reference, but I always considered her centaurean appearance a mere reference to her mutant origin, so I considered the pilot aspect worth mentioning wink )

It took me a long time to realize that in Lethal Inspection when Bender says to Hermes, 'I was in Italy last week', that he was refering to The Duh-Vinci Code.

Years later I am noticing all the Star Trek inspired plots in Futurama. At first I had only seen TOS so naturally I freaked at Why Must I Be a Crustacean in Love, but then recently I was reminded again of the DS9/TOS Crossover Tribble episode, and the one scene with the DS9 doctor when he spots his great-grandma and wondering, since no one really knew who his great-grandfather was, that maybe he was indeed his own grandfather. Oh...I loled so much laff I know the grandfather paradox is quite common in time travel theory but dammit I know that scene had something to do with it!

I love how there are some jokes that you never really get - or don't even realise are jokes until one day they hit you and you can't stop laughing (before the subsequent self shaming of having never realised it before).

For example, in "Leela's Homeworld", when Leela and Fry are looking over all the things Leela's parents have saved after she flushed them down the toilet, Fry says:
"And also, for some reason the letter I wrote you full of my personal feelings!"

The implication there is that Fry had given Leela a love letter and she had flushed it down the toilet. I felt so stupid for not realising this before - I had seen this episode so many times before this. Oh well, it's moments like this that give episodes their endless rewatchability quality.

I just watched TLPJF again, and realised the following for the first time:

When Leela said she does not really like cards and rather remembers their time together:
The card was "lost" to be found by the old, lonely Leela. And for her, that card was not something irrelevant, but maybe the most important message of her live.
So, it seems a bit like the "Leela standing on the bridge with Fry" gave up the card in favor of someone who needed it much more that she did.

(This might well be an overinterpretation on my part...but I just like that thought the story was constructed around even those little twists and details : ) )

I don't think that's entirely true. If Fry had given Leela the card that was left in the hand of dead Fry, the older Leela still would've gotten the one that flew out the time machine. She isn't losing anything by not having the card; and neither is anyone else because it's a different universe.

When going through reference material for Amazonian architecture, I notice for the first time that Tress did in fact unique, different voices for the three main Amazonians Thog (raspy), Kug (deep) and Ornik (relatively high pitched).
Until then, I always had a memory of one single generic, deliberately ridiculous deep female voice, on a "can be used for any Amazonian" basis.

Noticed on a second viewing that the selection machine in AFtA was inspired by the pain box in Dune.

Would have liked to see Fry sticking his hand in that Dune painbox big grin
He probably would not have felt the pain, be hailed as the Quizat Haderach, until people later grew suspicious that he probably was just too dumb to feel the pain/his mind to simple to play tricks upon big grin
("So. he is the chosen one?" "No....he is just an idiot" big grin )

I think that happened to a few people, the title clicked only just after you watched it - kind of throws you off cause the title has nothing to do with the main plot, just something that happens in the last scene xD

In Law and Oracle most recently was it? When Fry had to make the delivery for defrosted wang, a callback to I.C. Weiner. Now, I knew I.C. Weiner stood for either icy weiner or i see weiner (like I.P. Freely in Simpsons). Only just then though, when I saw that episode, did the lightbulb go on that the reason it stood for Icy Weiner was because it was a Cryogenics lab. 10 years. In the dark. I win the epic fail of the decade award for sure on that one!

I never thought about it beeing Icy Weiner, I always just thought it was I See Weiner.

That the radiator that Fry made out with was at his funeral during the Space Bee episode.
