I recently watch the Science-fiction classic 2001: A Space Odessy and though I didn't fully understand it, it led me to one conclusion that [bender]threw my entire perception of reality into question:[/bender]

It's amazing one movie can have so many parodies made of it!


I know there are at least a few references to it in Futurama. here are some I found:
In 4ACV12, The Sting, (1)Fry's coffin floating through space with planets in the backgrond looks eerily similar to the monolith floating through space, (2)When Leela opens the coffin, the funny colors are similar to near the end of the movie when the astronaut goes to.... wherever he's going.
In 4ACV03, Love and Rocket, When they had to disconnect the autopilot, it was almost exactly like disconnecting HAL.
In 3ACV11, Insane in the Mainframe, the sign outside the Robot Insane Asylum says: "HAL Institute for Criminally Insane Robots"

If you can find any others, post them here

"Put Your Head on My Shoulder" (Monolith near Jupiter)

"A Bicyclops Built for Two" (Fry's eyes as he enters internet)

"Godfellas" (Music as Bender floats through space)

"Love and Rocket" (Bender sings 'Daisy')

PYHOMS: Fry's line "My God. It's full of ads." echoes Dave Bowman's "My God. It's full of stars."

"Love and Rocket": The red interfaces of Planet Express ship look like HAL's, the shower scene is from the scene with Dave and Frank talking in the EVA pod (except the PE ship can't read lips   wink ), the ship saying "I'm afraid I can't do that, Leela", heck the entire episode is one big 2001 homage

"FutureStock": the stock exchange is an exact copy of Space Station One

"Roswell That Ends Well" also does the eye-reflecting-odd-shapes thing with Farnsworth and his glasses at the beginning.

That was in the movie 2010, not 2001.

However wasn't it in the original Sentinal short story that the movie 2001 was baised off of?

Sorry, got the book and the movie mixed up with the stars-quote. Then again it shouldn't matter what source it's taken from.

Additonally "Also Sprach Zarathustra" played when they entered the Internet as well.
