For a long time actually, I thought I was missing something there because Fry never actually mentions any sort of animal before the High Priest guy says that line. But now I realise it's just supposed to be a joke in its own right. Hooray!  red face

I always thought he was thinking of 'lobster' and that the joke was that Zoidy didn't think of it. That makes sense too though.

maybe this isn't exactly on-topic, but in The Deep South, when the prof sprays himself with the fish pheromones, what does zoidberg say?

it sounds like "I'm soaring to you!" or "I'm soooo in to you!" but i'm not sure which. it's funny either way, though.

It's definitely "I'm sooo into you" and it's one of the funniest lines in that episode

The joke I don't get may not count as a joke, but I still don't get it.  What does the title "Hell is other robots" mean?

It gets its name because it's a joint (place) that's hip (cool).  But it happens to share its name with a part of the body.  It's supposed to be one of those slow realization jokes.

It's basically a time-travel joke as I see it.  Causality is the relation between cause and effect. It states that distinct causes have distinct effects. Farnsworth had until then been very careful not to change anything in the past, because if would have effects in the future. After destroying Roswell Airbase they've just made a gigantic amount of changes to the past, and it should have serious consequences for the future. Farnsworth shout "choke on that casuality" as a way of saying "take that time-line".

Ofcourse in the end nothing change about the future.

In one of the commentaries,  John Dimaggio repeats is as "I'll break your arm!"  Of course, I'm sure different episodes have different swears.

Wasn't it "I'll punch you in the..." something or other? In the "The Series Has Landed" commentary, I think.

i just remembered that i don't understand this. in the day the earth stood stupid what do the following things mean:

"zoidy wanna buy on margin!"
"lets join a reform party!" (i don't know what a reform party is...i can guess, but a reform for what?)

and why are these things stupid? there could have been other things they said in that scene i don't get but i don't rememeber.

thanks for the hip joint, yeah more of a pun. then again, i didn't do human biol, maybe that's why it's not so funny...

I don't get the joke when in the second episode, Leela and Bender are talking about how rich AMY is and Amy says, "We're not that rich" and Leela says "Oh yeah, what sorority do you belong to?" and AMy replies"... Cappa Cappa(sp?) Wong"

For "Zoidy wanna buy on margin" line, I don't know a lot about the stock market, but from what I know, buying on margin is incredibly risky and generally will take your money.

The U.S. Reform Party has a stigma of being full of wackos.  Former presidental candidate H. Ross Perot, former pro-rassler/Gov'r of Minnesoeta Jesse Ventura, and uber-conservative/supposed racist Pat Buchanan are all Reform Party members.

@D12D...the joke is that Amy's parents either a)bought Amy a sorority for herself or b) donated enough money to the university to have a sorority named after them.

Kappa Kappa Wong. A sorority is a chiefly social organization of women students at a college or university, usually designated by Greek letters. Kappa is a greek letter. However, they're so rich they have their own house. Kappa Kappa Wong.

When everyone was turned idiotic, they said stupid stuff. Hermes thought that if he couldn't see others, he must be invisible (duh), amy wanted to buy internet stock (dot com bubble burst, so buying internet stock is pretty dumb), zoidberg wanted to buy on margin (this means buying stock on credit, so buying with money you don't have. Buying on margin was one of the reasons the great depression happened), the professor wants to play the lottery (which is pretty dumb, since you're basically wasting your money) and they all wanted to join the reform party because reform parties never win and are full of loonies.

Kif: 40,000 lines of basic.
and
Bender: Tubes! You're older then you said you were!

It's actually 4 million lines of Basic. Basic is a programming language, but Basic isn't wellsuited for programming shapes and objects, so writing a holoshed program in Basic would be a gigantic undertaking and result in a monstrously complicated and bloated program.

Radio tubes was the forerunner for transistors, which in turn was the forerunner for the integrated circuits of today. Meaning radio tubes is a very old technology. Since the PE ship used radio tubes in it's systems it must be a very old ship, but, being a woman (  wink), she probably lied herself younger.

Not much to add, Kif made a stupid choice when he selected, probably the worst programming language to write his holoshed programs in, and the PE ship was caught lying about her age.

Edit: ahh, gotcha!  wink

casual hello,

Thanks a lot for all the great hints here,
but there are still some things that are purple
haze for me as non us citizen with lousy english.
So maybe you can waste your time on me:

Insane in the Mainframe
Fry: Let me guess, he thinks he's Lincoln
robot2013?: Well, he's supposed to,
 Problem is, he's got multiple personalities
 All of them Lincoln

I don't know too much about american presidents,
was Lincoln kind of a 'Twoface'?
and that leads to
A Head in the Polls
Was Washington a heavy boozer?
Bender: Same reason you hocked your teeth.
Washington: Ah, Booze money.

That would be the president questions, i don't
want to explain me the whole presidential losers
section.

But another thing in A Tale of two Santas.
They read out the children x-mas letters on their
way to santa.
You choked him with a chestnut last year, and
he's beginning to smell a lot like x-mas if you
know what i mean!
so this kid had to live a whole year with his dead grandpa in his room, is that right?
i find that offensive,

naa, i'm just kiddin
anyway thanks for somebodies help!
