i searched for threads like this and if its a repeat sorry, BUT

i was wondering if anyone noticed similarities between lars and fry besides a few of the obvious ones.

my main interest is the line where Lars is deactivating the bomb that Santa leaves for them and says "a bomb in a case is just like a head in a jar". now i'm almost positive that i've heard fry say "a blank in a blank is just like a blank in a blank" before, i just cant remember the episode or what fills the blanks. if anyone else noticed this or knows when/where it is please reply

I guess they seemed a little similar.... now that you mention it.

I'm just not too sure how you can sweep in and steal the love of your life, from yourself.

Kind of a dick move.

But the first time my sister saw BBS when Lars first appeared she said "hey he looks like Fry"

You may be thinking of when he said "A giant brain is basically a giant nerd", which is similar to that.

When I first heard Lars speak I was a little disappointed that they had so obviously used the same voice actor who does Fry (Billy West) but didn't think anything else of it and totally missed any most of the other clues about Lars' true identity. (I caught his "what?" when the Professor mentioned that time-duplicates were always doomed during the wedding but still didn't twig to its significance.) So I was completely (and pleasantly) surprised by the reveal at the end.

I'm not sure if there's a word for it but I find myself really enjoying those out-of-left-field sudden happy resolution to a seemingly hopeless situation-type endings (e.g. the 'closet' in the apartment episode from the first season) when I suspect they actually should annoy me. I'm obviously just a big softy.  love

When i first saw BBs, I couldnt really tell lars looked like fry, but i could notice the fry in lars' voice. I just figured Billy west was doing lars as a seperate voice! lol

Yea, I was fooled as well the first time I watched BBS; I didn't pick up on all the clues...

I had suspicions when Lars said "You're friend, Fry, seems nice. Are you and he...?"

Since the trailer gave away that the secret to time travel would be discovered I didn't need to wait for the time travel stuff to start speculating. So I spent most of the film looking for similarities.

Although that didn't stop me welling up a bit at the line "Wait for me, Leela. I'll be there in a thousand years." (Aw)

When I first watched the movie when he came in I said "Huh, he looks like Fry, I wonder if it'll be part of the plot at some point." I see why Billy did his voice, but a mustache and baldness was pretty easy to get pass and know who it really is.

haha, when i first watched the movie i had no idea that the lars-fry relationship was coming. I figured lars was a duplicate, but fry never clicked. When i watched the movie again with my friend he asked, prolly by the second time lars was on screen, "is lars fry?" and my mind exploded.

Lol - you've just reminded me. When Lars said "Your friend, Fry, seems nice." the thought that flashed through my mind was that Lars might be checking out if Fry was available! Not that's there's anything wrong with that, mind you. But the rest of the conversation put paid to that idea and I'd completely forgotten about it until just now.

i like that the twist actually makes sense when you look back at the movie. (well, for the most part) like in "fight club". the clues are all there but they're subtle enough to where you don't notice untill the movie is over.
it always annoyed me when a plot twist just semmingly comes out of nowhere and doesn't make much sense.
