Well this has been sorted out, we all know of the animation goofs. Just look at the court scene in 6ACV09. tongue

Shouldn't Zoidberg be dead.... if we infer that Fry in his body did stuff with Leela in the Professor's body..?

Good point. Maybe he never got rid of his male jelly? Hahaha...ew.

There are four explanations on the Infosphere article:
Quote
It was established in the episode "Why Must I Be a Crustacean in Love" that, once a male Decapodian releases his male jelly, he dies. However, in this episode, Fry, who was in Zoidberg's body, wound up having intercourse with Leela, who was in the Professor's body, and did not die.
*It could be that, to die, a Decapodian needs to mate with another Decapodian.
*It could be that, Leela was keen to use her new appendage, therefore it would be Farnsworth's male jelly, not Zoidberg's, that was released.
*Mating and having sex are not necessarily the same thing for all species. The releasing of male jelly might be voluntary.
*Zoidberg's male jelly may only be produced during his mating season. Making it so that there was nothing to release. As for the male jelly in "Why Must I Be a Crustacean in Love", his body probably broke it down and reabsorbed it as in nature.

edit: spelling.

Those are multiple hypotheses.  There are many others for that matter.  It could also be that mating in the Decapodian world is why the Decapodians die.... but mating somewhere else may not kill them as such.  Who knows?  Perhaps Rosencrantz and Zoidberg are already  dead?

I would think that releasing the male jelly simply is voluntary. Having sex as in having sex with a human is different to mating with another Decapodian in the purpose of reproducing.

i'd like to visit the transcript for Why Must I Be a Crustacean in love and see if there are any clues there.

my species passes on its genes, it dies.
Solution: He never passed on his genes to Professor (how could he?) so he never died. I wonder then, would his species die from self love? Under this principle, no. Fry did say he could lend him his arm if he needed it.

Zoidberg has also made mentions of his own self-masturbation.  That's a pretty strange mechanism... perhaps during full intercourse (between a male and female decapodian) they exchange chemicals in their fluids that enact the death process.

I also think that Fry's comment about 'so you have to choose between a horrible death or a life with no sex' with a grain of salt.  It is Fry attempting to dumb down the events in order for him to understand them properly.

Quite interesting. Their loins combined contain the active ingredients for making a deadly bomb within them. Like a sexual suicide pact.

Maybe...that might explain my desire to be a shiksa goddess.

Also I don't like shrimp. But to be fair there are very few meats I like.

I wonder if we'd ever see Zoidberg eat lobster...to keep on topic a little...heh

I still have to wonder what explanation the writers would give for the whole Fry-as-Zoidberg/Leela-as-Farnsworth nastification. I watched the episode with the commentary on, but none of them even brought it up.

To be fair, though, I think they were all too busy trying not to hurl.

Haven't you got enough explanations already? Decapodians die when they reproduce. Zoidberg did not reproduce, he merely had sex, or at least "snuggled" in some form even without using his genitalia.

Well... that's difficult to say too.... it's never explained in great detail the mechanisms that kill Decapodians during mating.  Since Zoidberg and the Professor are different species, it's entirely plausible that they did in fact have sex.  What I find much more confusing if they performed any sort of intercourse is how they actually went about it; since I'm sure Fry is probably adamently not homosexual and Farnsworth actually has a penis.  Perhaps Leela likes anal, and Fry was willing to copulate in a homosexual manner if he got to be the pitcher...... this might make even more sense, since Farnsworth's frail old body would peak to orgasm through anal, and Zoidberg's penis probably gives off all kinds of ecstatic, alien sensations upon being tantalized........ also the Professor probably has a really tight sphincter.

What the fuck did I just type?

We know that male jelly comes out the wazoo (ass), and that Leela is a very dominant person... we don't know if Zoidberg even has a penis. I'd say that Leela used Farnsworth's penis to pork Fry in Zoidberg's anal equivalent.

I guess it's not so much that I need an explanation. It just annoys me slightly that the writers didn't bother to think of one. The lazy sods.  tongue

I'm going with the theory that Decapodians only die when they mate with other Decapodians. Perhaps they even go all praying mantis and bite each other's heads off.

Also, thanks to Winna, I may never eat again.
