So I just watched this classic episode again for the first time in a while, and this thought only just now occurred to me.
If Fry's checked bounced for the 20th century apartment and everything in it, how come the Robo Repo guy didn't ask for the Angry Norwegian Anchovies? Something like that they almost certainly have a checklist of things they need to take back, certainly something worth $50 million.
I rewatched the scenes and the auction occurs before he gets the apartment, so one explanation could be that maybe his check cleared for the items in the auction and not for the things in the apartment. But if that's the case...where is Ted Danson's skeleton? Was that the skeleton we saw in Fry Am the Egg Man? Am I thinking too much about this? Hahaha.
It's fun to think of these things though.
