But what you're forgetting is that the Cyclopians weren't real and that the Earth wasn't destroyed.
Not really. What we discussed was that Leela wouldn't have responded "oh noes, we're the only ones left!" but rather "tragic, but there are lots of more humans", ofc mourning the dead and the lost.

Aki, you forget that Leela wasn't in her right mind--she was, like, dehydrated (and dehydration will make you do crazy things, if her actions in IAGDL are any indication). Also, if I thought I saw the Earth being destroyed, my knee-jerk reaction would be "I'm the only one left"; I'm assuming it causes enough emotional turmoil that you don't really consider the possibility of there maybe being some survivors elsewhere. And the damn Adam and Eve thing was shoved down her throat (and ours) since the crash-landing--of course she'd assume she and Zapp were the only ones left.

You're right. Although I did think of her dehydration I didn't consider how upsetting it must be to witness a thing like the Earth's destruction, and ofcourse the Eden stuff brings along alot.

Rebirth: Right before Leela-r is about to shed her skin there are a few frames where she has both the bandage and the thing Leela wears on her wrist, then it goes back to normal.

Yeah, if there was a throwaway joke it would be funny. Right now it just feels like there used to be a joke there but it was cut.

Or alternatively, much like the explanation for most of the goofs: Futurama is a cartoon.
Or if we're not satisfied with that: Because it works for the story.

In "In-A-Gadda-Da-Leela", how does Leela completely strip out of her spacesuit when she can't free her legs from beneath the tree? Shouldn't it stay pooled around, like, her calves? Or is it one of those spacesuits that disintegrates completely around the metal track as you unzip it?

The goofs that I've noticed since four hours after viewing are all in "Rebirth".

At the beginning of the episode, Fry enters with severe burns. But we find out later the Fry we saw was only a robot Leela made. So, why aren't any wires or cogs or metal structures shown inside his gouges? Or could it just be that the robots were wearing really thick skin?

There were one and a half other problems I noticed with the stem cells. First off, as far as our efforts have shown, adult stem cells are successful, but do not show that they can entirely recreate organisms. The big problem was having their memory retained when they were reborn. Then again, maybe the birthing device is so complicated that it can use the brains dumped into the fluids of the tank to transfer information from one body to another (however, this doesn't explain Fry's situation, but I guess it's to show he doesn't have much of a brain anyway).

Also, Bender was stated to have "RNA" in "Teenage Mutant Leela's Hurdles". That was one of the top original Futurama episodes, so us fans just can't say that there is nothing to build Bender off of. (Well, actually, that still doesn't explain why he, or the fact Dr. Zoidberg were recreated in the stem cell slush.

Given that Zapp was able to speak as a head-on-skeleton, I'm going to just say that you disregard the memories question.

On the stem cells: I don't believe the Professor said they were human stem cells. For all we know, there was robot, Decapodian, and Amphibiosan stem cells in there too.

I just assumed (by the end, ofcourse) that that wasn't his burns but rather parts of the deceased Leela that splattered on him.

NO! That Fry wasn't on the ship but was actually a robot, the real Fry was actually completley smashed up, which is why the stem cells wouldn'
t work, and that was the Fry on the ship, not the robot, the robot was bought to cope with his death!

In "Rebirth" when Bender comes out of the Cyclophage's mouth he has both of his eyes. But when it goes to the next scene, he only has the one before he screws in the other. I had to freeze frame it to notice it the second time I watched it.

Also. Does anyone know the relevance of the the name 'Sanguinette' on the cycle-ship you see in "In-A-Gadda-Da-Leela" as they go to Cape Knievel to fly off?

Sooo... the most obvious question comes to mind:  How was Zapp going to enter Leela's "promised land" with the tree trunk laying over her legs.  That would make normal sex impossible.

Logic dictates that he was planning to move the tree off of her legs at some point, but logic doesn't explain how he would explain being able to move the tree after claiming to not be able to move it when Leela first woke up.

Not a goof, but we know Leela loves inflicting pain on others.  She probably enjoyed her sexual romp with Zapp because she had just beaten the holy hell out of him minutes earlier and was probably aroused by it.  She loves Fry too much to subject him to such a beating, so she satified her sexual hunger on the beaten and humilated Zapp. Then went home and deloused herself as she did her laundry.

Speaking from experience, it's not impossible to have sex with a woman whose legs are closed. I realise how dodgy that makes me sound, but it ain't like that Mac.
It's a bit more fiddly, but completely possible.

This is the guy with a pair of salad tongs and a box with the words "Leela's Organs" written on it.

Senile.  Amoral.  Incont of bowel and bladder.  But still a genius.

Already established in a previous episode that Bender has a robotic equivalent of DNA in "robotic RNA".

I actually thought of that, too; my guess is, it wouldn't have been worth the introduction of her parents and all the sappy emotions that would go with that, when Leela was just going to awake from her supposedly irreversible coma eventually (at that very funeral, in fact). I also wondered why Fry's death didn't seem to bother Nibbler at all--him being this messianic creature and such (they are still pursuing that, I hope)--but I came to a similar conclusion: not worth introducing that particular plot-point when "Rebirth" had so much to accomplish otherwise, tying up all those loose ends from ItWGY.

In "Attack of the Killer App", Fry has three legs when he and Leela hug for the second time before the zombie scene.

Also, more of an oversight than an actual mistake, but stars can quite clearly be seen outside the spaceship on the eyePhone right before Leela crashes into Planet Express.
