Maybe to have an argument about it and make up and excuse on behalf of Futurama for a goof that would obviously be realised through the commentry.

It is because in the beggining of the show, Zoidberg was'nt poor just a incredibly bad doctor. He became poor later on.

Zoidberg gets a wage from Farnsworth, bad doctor or not, so that doesn't explain why he is poor. What does explain why he is poor is that he is a hopeless consumer - spends all of his money on totally useless stuff. Examples include the Miracle Cream in LTZ; and the eight records and eight newspapers in TDHAIP.

Zoidberg has been Farnsworth friend longer than any other PE member, so perhaps Farnsworth had higher genorosity towards Zoidberg than anyone else Due to that.
Well I don't know, I can't really back up what I'm saying because I haven't got the episode that firm in my head.

because he is the crews docter and he is treated better than the crew but that raises further questions about amy she is actually RICH but has to stay on the fiesta deck in the bad room?

Thankies. There is a scratch line across the e, but it's difficult to tell since it coincides with the horizontal line in the letter. You can see the tags if you hit "edit" or "quote".

So yeah about Zoidberg being poor or something. In a  flight to remember i suppose he was just given a one off. I mean all characters dont have to follow the personalities that they are given from episode one. Give Zoidberg a break!

Quick, cheesy explanation:  The Professor ordered the tickets for the Titanic in advance.  As you know, he's not that sanguine about the ability of his PE crewmembers to survive their missions.

For example, in "When Aliens Attack":

Farnsworth: You'll be the captain, you'll be the delivery boy, and you'll be the alcoholic, foul-mouthed-- [The door behind him opens and the real crew walk in.] Oh, God, you're alive. I mean, thank God you're alive! [He turns back to the others.] Sorry, check back in three days, a week at the most.

On the other hand, Zoidberg doesn't go on that many missions, he doesn't.  Like Hermes (who also got a good suite on the Titanic) he's mostly Earthbound.

So I betcha the first class tickets were non-refundable.  Huh?  Huh?  Or do I have to get Zapp down here to back me up?

You know what my explanation is for Zoidberg not being rich? That he's a filthy god damn crab who epitomizes the smell of whale sperm and rotting clams into his everyday lifestyle.

It doesnt. In fact , it doesnt say how Farnsworth became to know Zoidberg. And hes never rich because he's not an actual doctor. We all know that. C'mon , his charts are upside down in his room.

Bender: Good evening, I'm-- [Feedback. He turns the knob on the side of his casing.] Whoa, sorry. I'm Bender and I'll be emceeing this roast. Y'know, they say you can judge a man by the company he keeps. So here's the Professor's oldest friend, a grotesque, stinking lobster.
Quote courtesy of The Neutral Planet.  Whether Bender's correct or just reading a jazzed-up script, I can't say, but there's no particular evidence to the contrary.

Also, this thread's topic has been answered like, 11 times, with about three different theories.  I was one of the original ones.  Why are you all still here?

I think the reason why Zoidberg is so poor is because he's working a minimum wage job as a doctor for Planet Express, a delivery service. 

Plus, the Professor probably doesn't pay him that well enough.  If Zoidberg were working in a hospital or had his own medical office, then maybe he would have more money.

He got a nice room for the people who stay he's surprised the crew lived through 3 episodes zoidberg and hermes probably worked there from the beginning

Zoidberg is poor because he's not a good enough doctor to get a better job.  The professor hires the cheapest doctor he can find becaues he expects his crews to die anyway

Wouldn't it be ironic if it turned out Zoidberg had been embezzling PE money from under Hermes' nose the whole time, and was now a millionaire?
