I assume, as I often do to things, (the consequences be damned!), that we are all fairly large fans of Futurama.  Most of us to the point where the mentioning of said show evokes several memories, thoughts, bodily fluids, and other ooey-gooey things of ill repute.

So, the question is, a but narrow than what my original broader idea for a my first topic was, given the just the thought Futurama, what is the one joke, sequence, one liner, or other sort comedic idea, that sticks out in your head.

I've been mulling this for some time, and I think the one thing that sticks out for me, and has since I started watching, is that in Space Pilot 3000, the scene with Bender reattaching his arms.  The paradox of it just makes chuckle everytime, especially Fry's response.

The joke that forever clinched it for me was 'Urectum'.

All those mentioned above did it for me, but I think Stephen Hawking's line stands out...

Fry: Stephen Hawking! Aren't you the guy that invented gravity?!
Stephen Hawking: Sure, why not...

That or Fry's "I love symposia!" line...

OR

Fry: "I've never seen anything so mind-blowing... OOH! A table full of muffins" (or something... )I'm bad with quotes. Random Quote Nazi / Futurama fan feel free to do to me what you will...

I was quite a latecomer to Futurama so its episodes from season 2 that stood out to me. Particularly that bit in 'A Clone of my Own' where Cubert gets a concussion.

But there's also that classic line from 'War is the H Word':

Solider: "This is the worst part- the calm before the battle."
Fry: "Then the battles not so bad?"
Solider: "Oh, right! I forgot about the battle!"

Cryonic Women

Kid: It's like skate boarding, except half the time someone dies.

Fry: Oh, so its safer than skate boarding! *Grins*

Fry's grin was so funny, I laugh everytime I see it.

Linda the Newscaster: We have with us the CEO of Fishy Joe's, Fishy Joe Gillmann, noted anti-eating activist Free Waterfall Jr., and the discoverer of popplers, Capt. Turanga Leela.

Fry: Turanga!?

Amy: That's her name, Philip.

Bender: Philip!?

That sequence still gives me a chuckle, ever since I first saw it on Fox about 4 years ago.

Continuing on in that song:

The range Katey Sagal uses at that part is great.

Nixon's line at the Watergate Hotel in "A Head In The Polls" always make me laugh, and really shine in all it's brilliance.

Nixon: "Oh no? Well listen here missy. Computers may be twice as fast as they were in 1973 but your average voter is as drunk and stupid as ever. The only one who's changed is me. I've become bitter, and let's face it, crazy over the years. And once I'm swept into office, I'll sell our children's organs to zoos for meat. And I'll go into people's houses at night and wreck up the place! Muhuhahahaha!"

Visual, it's Leela beaning down one batter after another in "A Leela Of Her Own".

Don't forget "They poo-pooed my electric frankfurter!"

For me it probably has to be

"Have the boy lay out my formal shorts."
"The boy sir?"
"You. You lay out my formal shorts!"

Sums up Zapp and Kif's relationship perfectly! I'm sure there's another one that sticks out in my head though (ironic since I can't think of it in this thread of all threads).

...Now I remember.

"Kif. I'm feeling the captain's itch."
"I'll get the powder sir."

Zapp's reinstatement to the DOOP, and his little motion telling Kif he's got armpits to shave is quite memorable for me.

Mine would have to be Malfunctioning Eddy's first appearance. I laugh whenever I see that classic bit.

NURSE: He's very excitable, so don't say anything to surprise him.

MALFUNCTIONING EDDY: Pleased to meet you.

FRY: Actually, we've met once before...

MALFUNCTIONING EDDY: WHAT?!

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOMMMMM!!!!!!

Classic.  smile

I have that as the start-up sound on my PC, and I laugh whenever I turn my computer on. It's just so hillarious.  big grin

The second I heard it was from Matt Groening!

Farnsworth: Dr Zoidburg this is fry, the new delivery boy. He needs a physical.

Dr Zoidburg:  Excellent, excellent.

Farnsworth: You'll be fine.

Dr Zoidburg: Now open your mouth and lets have a look at that brain, no, no, no not that mouth.

Fry: I only have one.

Dr Zoidburg: Really?

Fry: Ah, is there a human doctor around?

Dr Zoidburg: Young lady, Im an expert on humans. Now pick a mouth open it and say.....    smile    big grin    smile    big grin    smile

The "Stupid Fry" lines get me every time.

Actually, the one that just comes to my mind is not really funny.

At the beginning of "I dated a robot", when Leela proposes to take the morning off, and let Fry do everything he wants

Fry : Everything ?

Leela : Except that !

WOOOO ! the way she says it is really... sensual !


oh, and a funniest in "Roswell that ends well". (the quote may be rough) Truman/Zoidberg facing one each other

Truman : do you plan to make some human-hybrid aliens ?

Zoidberg : are you coming on to me ?

One of my all time favourites is when Kif meets Amy's parents

Amy: "He's not scrawny, he's just small boned."

Kif: "Actually I don't have bones. I'm supported by a system of fluid filled bladders that..."

Amy's dad: "Yeah yeah, you a big squishy wimp"

That's one of my favorite too, but actually that wasn't Malfunctioning Eddy's first appearance, hence the "We've met once before". His first appearance was in S02E10 - Put your head on my shoulder.

Oh, sorry. I've only seen that episode once, and that was way back in 2000-ish, so I can't really remember it.
