I was just rewatching The Tip of The Zoidberg and I laughed out loud (again) at when Amy says Zoidberg "sand-crabbed" out of the building. Then he's caught "sand-crabbing" into Mom's place.

sand-crab (verb) - To tunnel through the ground in or out of a building.

This is a perfectly cromulent word, and it's good to see the writers adding to the English lexicon.  I personally can't wait for a chance to use this term in real life. Maybe I should watch Shawshank Redemption with a friend so I can comment on his sand-crabbing  big grin

Does anyone else have any words or phrases they like to use from Futurama? There's probably already threads about quotes people use, so I'd prefer single words or short phrases (although whole quotes are fine otherwise).

You can't use the word 'sand-crab' unless talking about something that scuttles side ways. So if you use this in real life, you'll have to be talking about a crab as people don't often sand-crab. Therefore that comment sucks noddles.

When Amy saw the tunnel in the ground, she wasn't referring to the scuttle, she was referring to the tunneling.

Although, the lack of replies to the thread seems to indicate that you're right about the comment sucking noodles.

wowbagger, I find your question interesting! But it's sort of tricky to come up with some uniquely Futurama phrases. After some thought, here are some:

scooby-doo: To deceive a group of meddling teenagers, usually by impersonating a monstrous villain.

For example, "That isn't Mr. Peppy! He scooby-dooed us!"

gleesh: An expression of exasperation or contempt.

As for quotes, some totally random ones I like are, "My deal! It's doing that thing again!" and "Free corn? Well, that'll suit me just--bokaw!" I use that second one quite a bit, especially now that ears of corn are always on sale at the grocery store. big grin

Well done to you for spelling bokaw!

People hardly reply to my threads either frown I was going to set up my own msg brd with blackjack and hookers and some other stuff, but decided against it.

But Danny, there's nothing wrong with us talking 'bout it here, right?

And I don't see "scooby-doo" there so I should suggest it to the Infosphere admin.  smile

I habitually use all of Amy's versions of the word "duh"- spluh, buh, guh, etc. And I know this doesn't really count, but sometimes I'll add an S to the ends of every wordses.

And it's 'Scooby-Doo'd', not 'Scooby-Doo'. tongue

Yes, she said "scooby-doo'd" because she uses it in a passive form.
So the normal verb would be "scooby-doo".

Yes but the coinage is 'Scooby Doo'd'. Which I added.

Today I was reading a book for my English class, and the narration included the word "mightn't." I immediately wrote "No I mightn't!" in the margin and realized that Futurama has affected my vocabulary and manner of speaking in strange and original ways.

Just like that.

In "Bender's Big Score," Nudar says that Fry might have memorized the time code, to which Fry replies, "No I mightn't!"
