While I'm here, in 'A Flight to Remember', Bender is told that the house limit is three due (do?) overs when he fails to win at the dice table.

So - what's one of them, then?

A "do-over" is when you get to do something over.

In other words he wanted to roll the dice again because he didn't get the result that he wanted; but he had already done that three times and that was the limit.

Aaah, and that's funny because gambling establishments aren't known for letting you have another go at stuff.

Thanks awfully - once again I bow before your big brain.

Oh, that.  No, it's a reference to All in the Family.  I answered that one at the top of the last page.

I know this became more of an "explain the joke I missed" thread, but they showed Mother's Day last night on CN, and I laughed heartily at this joke, again, and it's something with a second layer of funny that I thought a lot of people might have missed.

The scene in "Mother's Day" where the garbage can throws itself through the window of Sal's Pizza is not only funny because the garbage can threw itself, but it's a direct reference to Spike Lee's "Do The Right Thing," where the riot gets started when Mookie chucks the trash can through the front window of Sal's Famous.

Why does Fry say 'Snap!' when he is told he is the most important person in the universe? I know this is probably obvious but if I don't find out I will go mad!

A question about the ending of TMLH. Is there a point in Pazoozoo speaking French or is that just random?

I mean, I know that French is supposed to be a dead language, but I don't get it...   confused

Thanks, that's gotta be it.  smile I looked it up and found this:

gar·goyle n.

   1. A roof spout in the form of a grotesque or fantastic creature projecting from a gutter to carry rainwater clear of the wall.
[Middle English gargoile, from Old French gargole, gargouille, throat, waterspout.]


I think that refers to the architecture of  their Gothic cathedrals.

Also the fact that he was speaking in a French accent and at the very end french dialect made him more sinister (in a funny way).  In my opinion anyway.

Yeah, and he's talking in an extinct language to boot... does anybody know how they did this in the French dub? Replacing French with German as they usually do wouldn't really work, would it?

I just found out what Slurms MacKenzie was based on... Guess that's part of the social/live style references that don't work out throughout the world.

Kool. But that dog doesn't look like it parties all night  wink  tongue I knew Slurms was based on some dog after watching Big Yellow Belly, where Santa's Little Helper becomes the Duff Companie's mascot.

Something ive never got in "I, Roommate", is why hermes spits the claws he was eating out when zoidberg said,'Thanks.I made them myself'.How did he make them?
Does he shed claws like he can shed his shell??Hmmm"this throws my whole perception into question"hehe

I think that was discussed a bunch of pages back. Try that. I think some people believed they were offspring or something like that. Others just thought the claws would be gross since Dr. Z is a disgusting person.
...how many times have we tried to avoid actually explaining the kegelsizer? I'd think it would be self-explanatory when people click the link that was posted the first time and find out what kegel exercises are.

What he says is, "There, now no one can say that I don't own John Larroquette's spine."  Obviously, Bender has just dug up John Larroquette and stolen his spine.

i didn't get the joke in CHR where right before Leela went to talk to the other orphans she drinks the plant water. I thought it was funny, but why would she want plant water? How would that take the edge of?


The last time i tried to kill myself was about an hour ago. I jumped off this really tall building. But i ended up doing a triple backflip and landing on my feet. No one saw it of course, except for two little kittens and one kitten turned to the other and said "See? That's how you do that."

It wouldn't, she just ran out of real booze to chug down, and grabbed the nearest source of liquid.

Although the water was probably mixed with plant fertelizer, so it should have a bit of an effect.

Okay, just who exactly is Agnoo (or Agnew, or whatever...)?

Me suspects that this be some sort of American type joke... (I am an Australian.)

Also, was not "I have ridden the mighty moon worm" a Dune reference? I haven't seen the movie in a while.

2 theories, either Bender hates turkey for some reason
or turkey tastes like fish.

That's what I always thought the joke meant anyway.    smile

I thought it was that Bender wasn't a very good cook, and would make the same thing no matter what the ingrediant.
