So why are people posting so many funny ones? Phnog and the Grunka Lunkas are classic.

Some of the LAMEST lines have actually made me laugh all the more.

Because Sci-fi started cheesy, and it should live on just as cheesily. Cheese and Sci-fi just go together. Am I making anybody hungry yet?

Zapp's lamest lines are from Brannigan, Begin Again

Zapp: I hate these filthy Neutrals Kif. With enemies you know where they stand but with Neutrals, who knows? It sickens me.

and:

Zapp: How do I know these scissors aren't part of some Neutral plot?

and:

Zapp: The Yarn People of Nylar 4? [He points at the pink creatures made of string.] So, a plan to assassinate a weird-looking alien with scissors. How very Neutral of you.

and:

Zapp: What makes a man turn neutral? Lust for gold? Power? Or were you just born with a heart full of neutrality?

and:

Zapp: Kif, if there's one thing I don't need it's your I-don't-think-that's-wise attitude.

and:

Zapp: Y'know boys, a good captain needs many skills, such as boldness, daring and a velour uniform. And I'm not convinced Leela has any of those things.

and:

Zapp: Back when I was captain all I asked from my men was their complete loyalty. If I had that, then for all I cared they could sit around the whole day drinking beer in their underpants.

and:

Zapp: No. You're loyal enough already. Meanwhile, I have a plan. We will single-handedly attack our archenemy the Neutral Planet...
Zapp: ...Once the neutral war machine lies in ruins, I'll be a hero again and the DOOP will reinstate me as captain.

and:

Zapp: Prepare to continue the epic struggle between good and neutral.

and:

Zapp: Precisely. Now, in the name of all that is good and honourable, we'll call the Neutral President with a message of peace, then blast him.

and:

Zapp: [on screen] This is Zapp Brannigan of the good ship...Planet Express Ship. I come swinging the olive branch of peace.

and:

Zapp: Then your mission is complete. I, meanwhile, will have ejected to safety, wearing the only spacesuit on board.

and:

Zapp: Of course. What do you think I meant by "loyalty"? Now help me into the only spacesuit. It looks a bit sweaty in there so you may have to apply baby powder.

and finally:

Zapp: So it's mutiny is it? I never thought I'd see the day. Come Kif, let's eject. I found a children's spacesuit you can wear.

I at first liked the whole Cubert joke about "because I'm twelve", it was ok in one episode when he was talking about a flame sticker making the ship fast in TROAE. But when you had him saying "Ummm, we're twelve, so, yes" I just thought, ummmm thats crap. Just annoyed me really.

dont know if it was mentioned or not in this thread, but the episode where the crew got stranded on that egyptian planet (forgot episode name) and when leela said "lets blow this tomb" and also "time for some kindling" it just sounded lame.. its a shame she's mostly picked to say lame stuff, cos i really like the character spose everyone's had their say of lame stuff, cubert said one funny thing once i remember in route of all evil "good news everyone, im a horse's butt"  big grin

I blame those lame lines (from A Pharoah To Remember) on a rather lame ending in general. The most lame Leela lines I felt were in The Day The Earth Stood Stupid though.

I just realised that's the second Ron Weiner written episode that has a joke in it where Fry says someone other than Bender is good at bending.

 In Luck Of The Fryrish (paraphrasing):
 "But a lot of the sewer tunnels have metal bars so I'll need someone who's good at bending. Leela, how about you?"

If animatics qualify, I'd say one of the lines from the Space Pilot 3000 Animatic.  "It's not working out Fry.  I hope we can still be friends!"

If animatics don't count, I'd say the lamest line is......(Drumroll).....

There has only been one line that has made cringe in the history of Futurama

From "Crimes of the Hot":
"A billion robot lives are about to be extinuished! Oh the jedis are going to feel this one!"-Farnsworth-

I must be the only one here who considered turning off the television after that line was said.

"A Bicyclops for Two" where Alkazar and Leela are playing out Married with Children. They had those alien-animals laughing and oooh-ing whenever something was said.

The janitor in the restaurant to Leela: "Hey, what's the problem, lady? You seem pretty attractive---oh! Forget what I said. I though you had two eyes."

Stupid Leela from TDTESS. That was just obscene. She should have done something like when Homer talks about the hillbilly mansion (Kim Basinger's & Alec Baldwin's house) in "When You Dish Upon A Star" ). You know Homer's stupid explaining voice... That's the one.

I can understand where he's coming from. Basically the same way I dislike "Where No Fan Has Gone Before", because it's basically a big, long, Star Trek reference. (Although it has been a while since I've seen that episode.) While that line doesn't bother me, I can see how it would if you weren't a fan of Star Wars.

Don't get me wrong, Star Wars, and it's sequels, are probably my favorite sci-fi movies, the problem with the line however was it felt like it was written in a second without it given much thought. Basically I'm saying the joke could have been much better (Don't ask how though).

P.S. I hate Star Trek yet I found "Where No Fan has Gone Before" to be a good episode.

agreed there, i'm just suprised that jedi line stuck out to you, i guess its a more recent episode.
a lot of futurama lines seem to have really bad delivery in a way makes things really cheesy or slow and obvious.
maybe its just me i kind of find leelas voice annoying and i dont think katey is a good actor, same with billy he does loads of good voices but often his acting isn't belivable.
I guess thats why I find the romance story between them so cheesy it just always make me cringe. For some I reason I find it embarassing that I'm watching such cheese even if no ones around

BU4000: We speak the same language. The language where we hate Star Trek and still find WNFHGB a good ep... Let's face it- Star Trek is lame-ass seven-inch crap. It seems that nothing has been thought through, and even though the characters are not completely shitty, the plots and technicalities just make me cringe..

Having trouble spelling?

Well this line just really bugged me for some reason (Teenage Mutant Leela's Hurdles)(although this episode was one of my favorites)

Fry: I'll have the sewer burger, without the rat peisis(sp?)
Leela: What are you on a diet?

But like most of you have said Katy seems to have problems with line delivery. I just cringe everytime I hear Leela cry,it sounds so forced.

And here some lamest lines:

Mugger: Excuse me? Hi! Do you have a minute? I live in Jersey City and my car broke down and I need to get back because my Aunt's real sick and she needs this medicine but I need money for the bus. So I'm mugging you. Hand over your wallets.

and:

Security Guard: I dunno...I never heard of no mayor.

and:

Leela: I can't believe the Zookeeper is this late for his own heist. It's just rude!

and:

Double "Yes." Guilty!

and last:

Leela (whispering to Fry): Shh! Those words are forbidden!

Fry: What words? Star Trek?

How could the word star Trek be forbidden when Hermes seid it in Brannigan Begins Again (2ACV02).
