There was a recent effort by "Ostab Bender" in the futurama newsgroup to revive the capsule writing biz.
As the responds in the group were scarce, I proposed to have a go here. Please try to add where you can and please stay on topic in this thread. Make clear which section you are adding to, thanks. Here we go:

here's an idea. Get a transcript (somebody? anybody?) and put it on a seperate page. That would be sweet. Just an idea.

Did You Notice...

-This episode was only rated TVPG-L(language), despite featuring fully nude female backsides?

-Arachnion makes an obvious travelling violation. What game were the refs watching?

-The Social Security Office kids are wearing the same clothes 80 years later?


Goofs

-When Fry and Leela collect chromotons(sp?), they leave burning holes in space, yet when Bender collects them with his mouth, nothing like that happens.

Previous Episode References

+Raging Bender
-The Referee Alien from makes an appearance.

+Insane In The Mainframe
-Judge Whitey.
