must have been quantum slurm, spontaneously switching between degenerate slurm eigenstates.  or maybe not.

Or quite possibly yes! big grin

The Prof. revealed it to the ATF, who were then convinced by Fry that he was just a senile old man making up stories. So you're both half-right.
I'm not half right, I'm whole right! Maybe my use of the word rebuff was incorrect, or maybe that's not a word at all. I remember that scene fondly though tongue You win again miscommunicato!

Ah, I see. Yes, the mighty Miscommunicato chalks up another victory. I didn't quite see your meaning. Looked at another way, your sentence and mine tell the same story. I'm as guilty as you are here of miscommunication, as I took what you said slightly differently than your intended delivery. More the "secret" being "revealed" than anything else, since only one man was ever made aware.



My bad. You carry on.

I think you forgot one rule:
"If it's funny, don't ask questions"

The Slurm gag is funny, why should we try to understand? It's a cartoon supposed to be funny, not to be logical. Like when the Donbot tried three times to kill Bender but doesn't know who he is.

Wrong and right. Futurama was hilarious and logical. It's slowly becoming hilarious and non-logical. Maybe even less hilarious. frown

Futurama had never been logical. In the pilot, the whole plot was: "you gotta do what you gotta do" with the career chips and all that stuff. And during the series, everybody change jobs.

I'm talking about the maths and sciency stuff. Sometimes (like all the time) it's un-realistic, but most of the time, yeah...

In Ghost In The Machines the nurse advised Fry that "No machines are allowed" on the Amish home world and then not long afterwards the crew come visit Fry. While they visit, Leela is wearing her electronic wrist thingamajigger, the very same wrist thingamajigger that Bender had used earlier on in the episode to slap Fry with extra times. This bothered greatly as it seemed like a major contradiction and an obvious continuity error...

Maybe Leela forgot to wash her wrist again, and the Amish people preferred her wearing her wrist thingamajigger, to the stink she would unleash on the Amish planet ...

(I'm referring the line in MD: "WRIST THING: By the way, try washing your wrist sometime.")

That's the lojack beacon. It's the name of a function, not the name of the device.

She refers to it more than once as "this thing" and "the thing I wear on my wrist".

I got the quote --- and the name of the doodad --- from the transcription for that episode. Whoever wrote that transcript called it a "Wrist Thing"; I didn't come up with the term myself.

I've noticed in a few new eps that the entire PE crew is in the building yet the PE Ship isn't in the hangar. There could be multiple reasons and explanations behind it, but yeah.

Maybe there's some cool second hangar or reparation deck that we've never heard of? That's my guess at least.

Well it's destroyed in almost every ep now, so it could be constantly getting repaired.

Which has just made me realise another possible goof. The ship is constantly getting damaged and destroyed, so why did the Professor suddenly make a big deal out of it in Bender's Game?

Because it was not destroyed during an ACTUAL mission?

That makes for an interesting question, how often was the ship destroyed and to what degree.

Not necessarily. Maybe whoever books the mission also pays in the event of the ship getting destroyed on it's way to and from the destination. Or at least pay more depending on how dangerous the rout is. Which both sounds quite reasonable.

So if the ship gets destroyed while not on a mission he has to pay himself.

Quote

Because in Bender's game, the Professor's care was needed for the story:)
It's like Bender's powers: Looking at him bending the pipeway in "The Mutants are revolting", his strength should be so great that the whole Planet Express Crew could not overwhelm him. But they manage to do so as soon as it serves the story/a joke:)

About that insurance thought: Maybe the Planet Express ship was once insured, but -considering it's damage history- no Insurance company would be so foolhardy so insure that ship again. Hm....come to think of it: Maybe they did and that's the reason we do not see too many insurance companies in Futurama nowadays...big grin

Wouldn't all the events of 'All the President's Heads' affect the crew going back to 1947? Like how they are seen and stuff?

How they were seen in 1948, and changed history by making the whole UFO hubbub. My point is that maybe they didn't travel back in time at all in the British version, but it doesn't really matter, since they did in the ultimate (third) version.

I mean, at the end of ATPH, Bender was on the flag and whatnot, meaning he would of been seen as like a famous figure or whatever in 1947.

Oh. Well, while that's possible, it doesn't have to be. Bender was only ever seen as a head in '47, and the flag isn't that detailed.

Possibly, but not certainly. And there'd be a good chance of them just being some unknown people who came looking for David Farnsworth that were recorded, but not to the point that people would recognise them or they'd be 'celebrities'.

I have just noticed a huge error.

In 'The Duh-Vinci Code' it takes the Professor and Fry a month to get to Planet Vinci and a month to get back, yet in 'Lethal Inspection' Bender says 'I was in Italy last week.', meaning the events of 'The Duh-Vinci Code' took place literally last week, yet the Professor and Fry are present in the episode, shouldn't they still be in space in the Spacecraft? no no
