Fry: "No one can have my pants! Not even the Holy One, blessed be He."
Coward Man: "Coward Man Away!"
Really? I laughed at Fry, seemed a rather random thing for him to say - he's never been particularly religious before.

Had Coward Man been introduced as 'Coward Man' before? Wasn't his only appearance was in TBWABB and his only line 'I am so out of here'? A bad joke, but perhaps they needed to introduce him proper - I hope he's in later episodes, perhaps a whole ep dedicated to the character?
... My brain has just gone nuts with several story ideas for Coward Man  wtf? I must be in story writing mode

TOTP, twice in a row!

Coward Man isn't the funniest thing ever, but I did get a chuckle as he bravely declared: "COWARD MAN... AWAY!" as a woman plunged to her death behind him.  Though I never got why she climbed out of her window just to hold onto the ledge.  Was she committing suicide, had a change of heart, but died anyway?

Fry: "No one can have my pants! Not even the holy one, blessed be he."

I found this line hilarious, simply because it was so random for Fry to say.

edit: Tastes Like Fry agrees with me! I feel validated! big grin

Almost the same statement, in fact, but you used a better phrasing.  big grin
Glad to know we're on the same level of amusement of Pants jokes  tongue

I didn't read what you posted until after I posted. wink

One of the funniest lines of the episode was Fry getting his ticket for the ship for no other reason than the deciding machine liking his pants.

Not really a line but I hated it in the Bender's Big Score film just after they eject the bomb, Leela's "dum de dum dum".

And the repetition of the worm attacking leela in Into The Wild Green Yonder and her bleeping swears were lame.

Amy's most recent catchphrase template is getting very annoying and very unfunny. I'm disgusted that anybody even thought it was in any way remotely clever. Particularly, I have a huge peeve with her line in "The Mutants are Revolting".

"Shmeepers, it's the Land Titanic- the biggest and onlyest land boat ever constructed!"

Really, guys? "Onlyest"?

I agree with Tachyon. Good line, IMO.

Her grammar is all wrong. "Most only" would have been the correct way.

Professor: I'd like to meet this moose.

I know why it's supposed to be funny, but it's not imo. Can't really think of any others, Futurama jokes always make me laugh at least on the inside, if not out loud.

That is a strange line, isn't it? I get why it may not work for some people, but something about the way Farnsworth says it--"I'd like to-ooo...meet this Moose"--whilst regally toying with the mounted moose head amuses me. Then again, I'm weird.

On the subject of lame lines, though: Though I like Nixon's reference to the urine sample Bender (unfortunately) manages to procure from Travers in "Decision 3012," I can't help but cringe at Bender's traumatized response of "Let's not talk about that" (or whatever it is he says, exactly). In a way similar to how Billy West's reading of Farnsworth's line about Moose from TMLH makes that gag for me, John DiMaggio's reading of Bender's line just ruins it for me; I can't quite explain why, but it just comes off as too, like, sissified or cliched or obvious or something.

Can the entire infomercial scene from Bender's Game count? Jesus, that was painful.

That was intentional I think. It was so painful it was funny, for me at least.  Plus, having Bender ask Fry: "Hey, is that the Staghorn?" - right as Fry is trying to murder him with it makes that whole infomercial worth it.

Gorky: Really? cause that put the icing on the cake for me about the whole bathroom gag, and Benders always been offended by human fluids (with perhaps the exception of blood) so it may have been obvious but I found it funny.

Maybe cheap shots just amuse me.

Louis: For me, it started off amusing, then annoying, then really funny, then just sad.

Ahem....
Minx to Zoidberg: "If we're gonna be co-workers, I got to be straight with you. I've been emotionally scarred by years of unspoken verbal abuse."

Shame on this terrible joke. Shame on It.   no no

Really? I found the penis jokes in Spanish Fry hillarious.
My fav is : Lrrr: This human's lower horn is one of God's creatures. A living thing. And all living things, large and small...
Bender: In this case, small. Woooo!

Which was then saved by Zoidberg's ''And I'm Zoidberg, how about you?''.

I get where they were going with that joke, but it only needed to be said once. There's nothing about it that's made funnier by repeating it constantly.
