I was watching "Why Must I Be A Chrustacean In Love", and suddenly something connected. Before the start of the Claw Plach match Zoidberg asks Fry whether disembowling is fatal for humans. First time I heard it, I just took it as a joke about Zoidbergs horrible knowledge about anatomy. Then in Roswell we see that disembowling actually isn't fatal for Decapodans. So Zoidbergs question was legit.

Similarly someone once posted about his "Chopping him right here, in the gonads."-line. In "Fear of A Robot Planet" we see that Zoidbergs species may have their gonads in the neck-area.

I have a feeling the Handcrafters thing will show up again in "The Devil's Hands are Idol Playthings".

So, anybody else noticed something that just looked like an obscure joke at first, but later turned up again?

Or am I just bored?  tongue

Don't confuse not caring with not knowing!

Further comments on the gonad issue... in Put Your head on my shoulders it seems that the gonad is something to fear.

its the scene where Fry and Amy are in the supply closet and Hermes knocks on the door because he needs a stapler and Zoidberg says

Dr. Zoidberg: "Stop! Stop! If you interrupt the mating dance, the male will become enraged and maul us with his fearsome gonad!"

And in "Why Must I Be A Chrustacean In Love" Dr.Z does get very violent when he needs to mate, tying in with "Stop! Stop! If you interrupt the mating dance, the male will become enraged and maul us with his fearsome gonad!"

I am curious why Bender hates humans all the time.
In the pilot Bender asks Fry if he really wants a robot for a friend. Does that mean that he's been rejected by a human/humans before? Mabey thats why he is is sometimes cruel to Fry.

in When Aliens Attack Leela pegs the Proff in the face with a volleyball. Fits right in with her inability to aim blernsballs in A Leela of her own.

Its sad that he isn't accepted at parties cos' he is a robot living among humans, as he said. He doesn't give a good first impression to some humans that don't know him very well, only the PE Crew. He is sometimes reckless, causing trouble for them though. I guess that is fun or payback.

Good point! At the time I thought it was more to do with Farnsworth's inability at 160 to play volly ball well.  wink But now...  smile

Leela and Hermes both said "axe" instead of "ask." It was said again in another episode, I think it was Roswell that ends well.

In "The Cryonic Woman," Fry is explaining to Michelle why 3000 was better than 4000.  " . . . And brains flew through space."  A few episodes later, "The Day the Earth Stood Stupid" premiered, featuring the Brainspawn, giant brains that, indeed, fly hrough space.

In "The Problem With Popplers," Zoidberg describes the popplers as "tastier than an unguarded penguin nest."  In "The Bird-bot of Icecatraz," Fry accuses Zoidberg of eating all the penguin eggs.
