Amy's answer has to be my favorite "no" in the whole series.  Such delicately-shaded emotion.

well first of all she's crazy and second of all she got the kid all these fancy dresses and told her to use fancy hangers. Why there were even wire hangers in the house is beyond me, but hey child abuse is always "fun"

But I think I mentioned this before, but the one person Leela should know Fry tried to have sex with, Umbrellie the mermaid, was not there. I guess the writers have an odd definition of "sex."

The only ones that we can confirm are Amy, Morgan Proctor, and Michelle. We can't be certain of any of the others. (It could be possible that Fry evaded the Amazonians until he was rescued.)

Then how do you explain the pelvis casque at the end of "Amazon Women In The Mood"? Too much running?  big grin Zapp said he "had snoo-snoo", and he's in the same condition as Fry.

We can also confirm Mildred, but I see the problem in getting her to attend Fry's funeral.

I don't get the scene in Brannigan, begin again when Fry and Bender are spraying water at each other and Leela breaks it up and says "This is the third hose fight I've broken up today, the second time using actual hoses"

I don't think it's supposed to mean anything.  Farnsworth is just angry at all the people cheering for their country and is trying to dihearten the Sweeden supporters.

Another joke I didn't get is in Bender Gets Made, when Zoidberg says "I'm coming down!"  What's that supposed to mean?

He's coming down from the drugs he was given, and it doesn't feel so good.  I think that's one of the best Zoidberg lines ever.

Thanks!  Lots of people were saying that that line was so funny and I never really understood why, but now it makes sense.

Yeah, they mention that on the commentary.  I think it was Matt Groening who said, "If you ever want to avoid a potential lawsuit, just give the character an 'alien antenna' to make it noticably distinguishalbe" or something to that sort.

Ah, thanks. I caught onto the lawsuit bit but didn't understand it was supposed to be a dog (being as I've never seen it before). I did have an idea that it was some copyrighted thing though.  smile

???

As someone already mentioned, "Nine, ten, a big fat hen" is from a nursery rhyme.  It was just a random, meaningless statement that tied into the "Nine" and "ten" that had just been used.  I thought it was hillarious just because it was so random.  Maybe the best line in that episode.

It's Spanish for "big."  Certain items on Taco Bell's menu have "grande" in their names.

ChAnCe - When the execubots said the chairman of the network is coming and then made way for that guy you were supposed to think that this was the chairman. Then he puts down the actual chairman and walks off.

Sorry if this has already been mentioned, but I don't have time to read through five pages of this stuff.

In "I, roomate", when the cast is sitting down to watch All My Circuits, Zoidberg is handing around a plate of what looks like crab or lobster claws, and Hermes takes one and takes a bite and says "this is great!" and Zoidberg says "Thank you, I made them myself", and Hermes promtly spits out the contents of his mouth in disgust.

The hell?

I think Hermes was suddenly worried that when Zoidberg said "I made them myself"....well, he meant without the aid of a stove...or any cooking utensils whatsoever
