I dont know if this has been posted before, couldnt find the search button and im new, sorry if it has.
Anyway, at the end of "The Cryogenic Woman" when Fry asks for his job back, Farnsworth is going to give it to him until Bender reminds him why he fired him, so instead he drops him through a hatch in the floor of the PE ship, so my question is, how did he, Leela and Bender get their jobs at the PE back? :S

Bender decided not to remind Farnsworth a second time, and therefore the Professor simply hired them back after another memory lapse.  Actually, nothing indicates that Leela and Bender didn't get their jobs back the first time around.  Only Fry got tap-doored.

Also, the episode name is "The Cryonic Woman"

The real reson is that, as the end credits are rolling, the professor fell asleep again, only to be visited by the an astral projection of of Fry who convinced him that keeping him on staff would be beneficial, that blood was thicker than water, and some other thing.

The professor is convinced by his dream and vows to rehire Fry.  By this time, however, they are aready back home.  Fry, meanwhile, has fallen to his death in Detroit.  The fall didn't kill him, roving street gangs did.

The professor then constructs an elborate time-shifter device and shifts his crew into the past just before Fry was dropped out of the first PE Ship.  They catch Fry, and are able to pull him aboard safely when the past ship and the present ship get too close to one another, which creates a temporal diffraction field that threatens to destroy the universe.  The only way to stop it is for the present ship to destroy itself in the Sun.  Before they go on their suicide mission, the present crew transfers Fry back to the past crew, thus saving him.

Later, Space Mushrooms with amnesia rays wiped out everyone's recollection of what happened (man, my fake non-episode was better than the actual episode).

Also, Bergey, the device is called a trapdoor.

erm, right, very nice story and all but there's still nothing to indicate that fry ever got hired again, except of course for the fact that in the next episode he was still working there like nothing happened. sorry for the name of the episode and your trapdoor, it was 4 am when i wrote it.

Am I alone in really liking this episode?  I thought it was a great insight into Fry's former life, and one of the best "Omigod, how are they gonna get him out of THIS one?!" situations ever (with a payoff that wasn't a cheat). 

Whoever plays Michelle is amazing - she carried off the "how I got frozen" monologue so it was funny, believable, and it even generated some sympathy for the character...and yet by the end of the episode you hate Michelle entirely.  She's like the worst-case scenario of girlfriends. Being  stuck in what he thinks is the post-apocalyptic far future with her must have been the ultimate nightmare for poor Fry.

The only flaw to me was Pauly Shore and his I'm-reading-from-the-dictionary delivery.  While I still prefer episodes that involve the other cast members more, I enjoy this one a lot.

I think the better question is, why does Bender WANT his old job back?

I like it too.  It's not one of my favorite episodes, but I don't understand why it's so widely disliked.

That was Sarah Silverman, and I agree.  She was a great choice for the part.

maybe because he gets paid for sitting around watching TV and doing nothing all day? like the others mention in quite a few episodes (Fear of a bot planet, My three suns).

I cant say i agree with you guys, I didn't really like this episode, the few post-apocalyptic movies i've seen were without a doubt the most boring movies i've ever seen, and they didnt really make fun of them in this episode (although the thing about this just being LA was funny i guess). While i agree that Michelle is played very well, there were no jokes made about her being so manipulative (at least none that i can remember), and i didn't really enjoy watching it, just made me hate her more =P
the part where fry worked at the cryogenics lab was hillarious though, when they were scaring all the defrostees.

edit: just realized i made a double post, even after spending like an hour reading the rules and stuff the other day, sorry for that.

No jokes about Michelle being manipulative?

"Stop analyzing everything with your relentless logic!"

"Fate brought us together, and Fate brought us here.  "No, you brought us here!" "Whine some more, Fry, I really find that attractive in a man."

"Stop standing up for yourself, Fry!"

Those aren't jokes?  confused

erm, ok maybe i should watch that episode again =P
anyway the first 2 are more like slightly funny fights, she's just trying to be impulsive and do some crazy thing because she "loves him so much" and he always points out the logical side.
the last one is hillarious though   laff

The fact that she accuses Fry(!) of relentless logic made me laugh out loud the first time I saw it. 

And the fact that she calls his pointing out (in perfect truth!) that it was her fault that they were in a living nightmare as "whining" making him unattractive to her is funny in a black-humor way.  I'm sure there are women who seriously use such arguments.

well yeah i guess that is funny =P
but that fight happened just before and just after they "went to the future", the whole scene about the kids and stuff had almost no jokes and was so depressing (like all post-apocalyptic stuff). well i dont know, it's hard to explain it, i just dont like that episode as much as the others.

Eventually, after Fry got fired, maybe Leela talked the Professor into giving his job back.

Man, I can name a dozen Poca-Paca movies that are funny, and not depressing, but that's for a diffrent thread, anyways, there were plenty of jokes in the kids civilization scene. Maybe you were just too depessed to notice them.

btw, I have a question - right now I'm watching DVD's on a device where I can't easily back up or pause; I've tried twice to figure this out at normal speed but have failed. 

Could someone tell me what city the PE ship is flying over when the Prof dumps Fry through the trap door?  I can't tell if it's LA or NNY, or some unnamed city betwixt the two.

I wasn't actually depressed when i watched it =P
I just don't really like that part of the episode for some reason, which i thought i could explain but now that you've showed me how funny and entertaining it is i guess i really cant explain it.

Shiny: I'm not sure, I always thought it was LA but never tried slowing it down to check, I'll make sure i do next time i watch the episode.

Well I'm the robotic prince of darkness and you're some sort of moron.
