YLL is also a good example of when it's overdone. Ugh. Leela was just unbearable.
This is one of the few times where it's acceptable to place "good" and "YLL" in the same sentence. tongue

Back onto visual gags, I quite like the Globetrotter's basketball-firing spaceship, as well as their basketball-shaped (well, more like "basketball-patterned") planet.

I guess I agree with the general consensus that Bender is a little too much of a jerk; even moreso than usual. I don't really care very much though. I can forgive the writers if they feel the need to exaggerate a character's personality traits for the purpose of the plot.

I agree. APTR is one of my favorite episodes, and includes one of my favorite gags of all time: Bender whipping a slave and floating away on his jetpack big grin The main reason I like this episode so much is because of how mean Bender is all the way through. I also liked how excited he was to be a slave, and Fry's reasons for not enjoying enslavement.

I love the spaceship graveyard in Möbius Dick AND the spaceship demolition derby in the beginning of Bender's Game.  

Especially when the lunar lander is repeated landing on the other ship.  

I like spaceships.    love

The "As Is" sash on Sally in The Cyber House Rules gets me every time.

UR: Your TOTPD is in time to my music o.o

Back on topic: Bender on fire.


One of the moments I laughed out loud and went back and watched again. So random, so awesome.

Professor Farnsworth's black lab coat at Fry's funeral in The Sting.

Professor's crazy-happy face when he starts to try and clone Seymour.

The Family Guy "12 Laughs a Year" calender from, I believe BBS.

The house exploding in the rear view mirror in RTEW. (Also, Bender's "And you are OUTTA HERE!" is one of my favorite lines).

In Godfellas when Fry looks at the picture of Bender holding Fry by the ankle over the edge of the Statue of Liberty. That moment is complete with Fry's line "He decided not to let go". Hilarious.

The PlanEx Calendar shoot!..with the men laff. I think I had trouble breathing from laughing so hard the first time I saw the Professor right at the end. So many things flapping in the breeze. You can even see some butt-curvature showing through his legs. John Di Maggio noticed it before I did(we don't hang out, I'm just a commentary junkie).



Now this one's not pure visual but that scene where Amy lists the symptoms of Tritonian hyper-malaria while the Professor acts them out independently but rather coincidentally in sync with her:

"You mean the incurable disease that causes fever, spasms, insanity, coma and finally death?"

(Billy West's crazy laugh just puts it over the top)



Oh! I have an old one. Apologies if already posted.

During the end credits of Fear of a Bot Planet, the final scene plays out in a photo-montage of still images. The second-last shot shows Bender angrily holding a broken bottle to Fry's neck. In the next image Fry's neck is sporting two new band-aids.

I love the bit in "Bend Her" where Bender/Coilette is sitting on the sofa, and I think it's Fry who sets a drink on the coffee table. Then Bender/Coilette slips a coaster under the glass. The professor looks on in alarm because Bender is now so female.

Agreed.  "Of course not!" *slips coaster under glass in a snappy fashion.*   This scene makes me laugh even more knowing my sister prefers you to use coasters as well.

For me it has to be Less Than Hero, Fry leaping to his death through a window, then leaping back through another window half a second later as Captain Yesterday.

After throwing a purple gas grenade into a tree hoping to find Guenter, a pile of birds drop to the ground followed by a number of unlikely animals. As they leave the scene, the professor reassures the group, "They'll be fine once the tranquiliser wears off." A slight pause, then an elephant falls out and flattens them all.

From The Devil's Hands Are Idle Playthings:
The picture of Fry and Leela getting a piggyback ride from Zoidberg. The pissed off look on Zoidberg's face is what makes it hilarious.
