Now, is that Speedy Gonzales running the booth? I still love the joke about "[he] makes Speedy Gonzales look like Regular Gonzales" from the original run.

That one actually looks like a Regular Gonzales, because he looks so tired.

Sorry this is late, but a nice little spot from Calculon 2.0. Credit to Reddit for this, not me.

I though I saw a sign or some such in Mom's Cloud Lab that said something like "TXS..."
Got me to wondering if it was "TXS 934" from Sealab 2021.

Yeah, the Coilette picture tickled me too. It was also fun to see Calculon's robe (when did he last wear that, The Honking?). It's a shame he didn't pack any of his robot stage make-up though. Or his Shakespearian hat.

I guess the Fry family really tided up their house. I guess you could say this is how Fry remembered his house as before, but I still call it an error. Also I have to ask, why was Fry's first dream that was about 5 minutes in his mind last 13 days in real life while Fry's second dream that lasts for a full day takes less than a day in real life time?

I'm going to give them the benefit of the doubt on that one and say that Fry may have remembered his house in a more positive light than the way it actually appeared in reality.

I have no idea about the answer to your question, though. Even though I really enjoyed GoT and found it amazingly sweet and touching, there were still a couple issues with it that didn't make sense to me.

An obvious reference to Inception. Time gets really distorted the deeper you go into each dream level.

For example, in the first dream level in the movie they drive a van off a bridge in reverse, and essentially the main chunk of the movie takes place during the time it takes for the van to hit the water, which would take about 3 to 6 seconds or so? But they have plenty of time the deeper they go. The deeper the dream, the longer you're in it for. Or something like that. It's been a while since I watched it.

I think the time in dreams are different with real life, like dreaming about something for 10 secs and suddenly when we wake up we realized its 8 hours in real life. But i could be wrong.

Yes, but it's the other way around: time seems to pass more slowly in your dreams.  Watch someone go into REM sleep for a few minutes and wake them just as it stops.  They will almost invariably describe a much longer passage of time in their dream.

You can also overlook all of the continuity errors in Fry's dream since it's, you know, a dream.

Well, the first point is definitely chalked up to Fry's dreams representing the most positive possible version of his memories (hence why the house is in pristine condition and his family is more loving/affectionate), so definitely not an error. Likewise for the inevitable accusations that this episode fucks with the timeline of what happened in 1999 - it omits the knowledge that later-time-duplicate Frys would've had of that night (ie. pretty much all of Bender's Big Score, which was experienced by the Fry who became Lars, and not OUR Fry) since it's only going by Fry's own experiences... I know no one brought that up, but figured it was worth nipping in the bud now. smile

As for the time stuff, it's just a joke about how your perception of time in dreams can differ eratically to real life. Sometimes a seemingly short dream can last for hours in real life, whereas incredibly long dreams can sometimes only last for several minutes. There might be some nods to Inception mixed into that logic (as if the episode needed any more), but Inception's got some pretty strict rules on time, while Futurama merely turned it into a joke that didn't quite land.

The rules of Inception don't have to apply to every single dream-related sci-fi story though. tongue

It was just a nod to the time thing imo.

I'd like to complain a bit about how Fry is actually able to fit inside Bender, able to go inside his arms and legs without getting in the way of any wires, being able to actually bend his hard shiny metal body, with it going back to its original shape after he gets out of him by the way, and creating a 4th finger in each of Bender's hands somehow, but...then again, Frender made me laugh my ass off after I saw it, so I'll let it go.

Also, when Leela said that the panic room could've been really useful for them about 50 times, is that a reference to MotPE being the 50th episode of the new run, or am I just looking to hard into it?

Box; I thought the same thing about Fry fitting in Bender. One possible explanation is perhaps a "suit" is one of Bender's many functions, and all the electronics are fitted in the "walls" of his body and limbs, which leaves room for stuff to go in the middle.

Bender's insides are as hollow as they need to be for whatever's happening at the time.

Also, Frender was the greatest.

The Professor calls Fry "Orange Joe" in Stench and Stenchibility. In Fun on a Bun, Fry told the Professor that most folks call him Orange Joe.

Cubert's last canon appeareance was in "Overclockwise". red face

*edit*

I asked Eric Rogers about Cubert's absence and he said:

Quote from: Eric Rogers
he's not a good character to write for and we couldn't think of any stories worth devoting to him.

I'm not too worried about Cubert's absence (in fact, I'm not worried at all). The last canon appearance contained his biggest role, and he was actually relevant to the plot. A cameo in season seven would have probably made him, once again, insufferable and would have spoiled the fond memory I had of him in Overclockwise.

He had a small cameo in "Saturday Morning Fun Pit", but it was non-canon.

That must be the Moon farm in lower right corner.
Nice shot, far away from Moon, but still showing the surface. (Moon isn't probably that small, though.)


That's a lot of damage... (Eyeball, ear and shoe remained!)

I can't say I remember that, does he have any lines?
