So naturally I was hoping that continuity with it would show up before the series ended.

Movie! Movie! Movie! Movie! Movie!

I noticed a thing while watching Fry and the Slurm Factory. Specifically, in the scene where Leela and the Professor are playing 3D chess. First off, 3 dimensional chess is a classic of Star Trek, but I'm focusing on the letters and words on it. The Professor's letter tray has almost all the letters needed for FUTURAMA except for one a, and the top platform has ONE and EYE crossing each other. Lastly, the second platform to the top has MATT on it.

No, they do play 3D scrabble in Fry and the Slurm Factory and it's regular chess in Xmas Story.

I'm disappointed in all of you (except Quantum Neutrino Field). And you call yourselves nerds.

The holographic chess that Fry and Bender play in "Brannigan, Begin Again" is referencing Star Wars. Three-dimensional chess, on the other hand, is from Star Trek, and is referenced in "Fry and the Slurm Factory" in the scene where Leela and the Professor are seen playing 3-D Scrabble.

I've seen that episodes tons of times and have literally no memory of that scene whatsoever.  I must need to rewatch it.

I love how some of the words are "One Eye" and "Prop Only"  laff.

I just rewatched "Meanwhile" today, and I have to say, for a chick who clearly never wears a bra, Leela's breasts really aged well. Not much sagging. How unfair.

Something about that phrasing bothered me. It took me a few seconds to realize what.

Not quite, young Padawan.
In the first Futurama comic, Bender wants to prove that the X-Ray googles he purchased are working, by telling Leela that she wears a bra. To which she replies that she alway does (indirectly hinting that those proof does not count, because she considers herself wearing a bra something obvious that anyone could guess).

Also, in 2-D Blacktop, Farnsworth said "...when you upgrade your bazooms". So, Leela got at least one boob job. (Regarding the possibilities of genetical engineering, it might possibly have been done without implants. I am pretty sure that someone offering cosmetic surgery - but leaving the women still the right to say "Yes, they are real"- would earn big time).

Ok, I do remember the comic now, but I have a point about your 2-D comment. AND, as the proud owner of breasts since the tenth grade I have a few more, Inquisitor. However it is work time for Luna now, and there are squirrels all over her classroom.

Chase the squirrels away with your breasts. Everybody knows they prefer nuts to melons.

Since we know Amy has at least 1 bra that needs recharging it is possible that there are bras that are not visible or made of cloth and other materials. There may be products that are a combination of anti-gravity and force fields that perform the same task. It may have only taken a generous endowment from the Howard Hughes Head Foundation in 2865 to develop a working prototype.

Ok, Inquisitor, I forgot my points. You win, but even upgrades sag eventually.

Do not worry about the double post. I just found out I made the post list with 10 posts a week. This kinda implies: Right now, Peel needs every post it can get. Be it "legal" or double ones... wink

Someone may have already posted this, but Nibbler's age in "I Second That Emotion" is incorrect. They say he is five, but we know he existed since 1999, when he pushed Fry into the cryogenic freezer--now he could have time traveled, but Nibbler also didn't remember events Fry mentioned when he went back to 1999, which means that 3000 Fry was part of 1999 Nibbler's future, AKA 3000 Nibbler's present.

TL;DR (it was a short post, shame on you):
Nibbler isn't actually five.

Edit: Also, Mom's thought mosquito thing makes a cameo in Brannigan, Begin Again:





Kind of, now that I see them side by side they're not too similar.

Oh, but there's a Neptunian there. That counts for something. Also someone from My Three Suns, if I remember what the water guys look like.
And a robot elder from the anti-human planet.

Edit: hey, another one.
Brannigan, Begin Again.







Edit: Oh I can't stop.

Well, they say he is five if he is anything like the common tree, as the vet who is still a little woozy from the morning's gazelle kick suggests. The characters simply assume that this is true, and a joke is made about Fry's apparent difficulty counting to five (with some ironic foreshadowing, perhaps, given the initial implication that there are innumerable age rings).

Withdrawn.







Noted.

Something else, not really an Easter egg, but something I found odd/lazy.



In "Bender Gets Made", there are frames throughout Elzar's restaurant, but they're always empty.
Okay, I'm done for a while.

Bender frequents Elzar's. Makes sense the frames are empty, he's probably always stealing the artwork. tongue

S8E3, Law & Oracle




Also some state names from Bendin' in the Wind.






Ghost in the Machines, "It Sure Ain't Butter"



Also, in "The Tip of the Zoidberg" Zoidberg calls Mom "Carol". Is that her real name?

Is that her real name? I'm betting it is. John Fucking Zoidberg has been around for a long time, and he has no reason to call Mom anything other than her real name...

Most likely. Kind of weird that the Professor still calls her Mom, though.
