I don't know if anyone posted this yet but in I, Roomate, while Fry is taking a shower, he gargles and he never tips his head up to get water in his mouth.
Also, In A Flight to Remember, how do Bender and Countess survive when they get wet? wouldn't a robot be destroyed?

Robots are protected against shortcircuiting from water, as Bender and other robots have been seen in bathtubs and showers several times, most notably in "Hell Is Other Robots".

they would have to be protected from shortcircuting incase it rained, because they just walk around on the street.

All true, but I think it was David Cohen who remarked that the bots all being in a hot tub in "Hell is Other Robots" was a blunder.

Don't know if its been said already but in Hll is Other Robots during the song at the end, the devil pulls Bender's arm off and kicks him down a hole. When he lands his arm is back.

In "Deep South" Farnsworth say they're in international waters. How?

Earth have a single world governement, lead by Earth President Richard Nixon's Head. People are even called Earthicans. Clearly the old nationstates doesn't exist anymore, so how can there be such a thing as "international waters"?

Hi everybody  smile 

Livengood is right, i you watch The Why of Fry Fry's flower dissapears when he bends down to talk to nibbler. We don't see him put it in his pocket. I can't believe that I missed this. It is my favorite episode and i've watched it a million times. I guess I'll have to pay more attention.

Welcome to PEEL tooslow,

That isn't actually a goof, that's an intentional joke.  Another example of this type of humor, is Fry's mystery glass of water in "Mars University".  Fry enters the dorm room, has no glass of water, we watch him the entire time.  The scene quickly cuts away to Guenther speaking (I think it was him) and then cuts back to Fry, who is now spitting water out of surprise.

OK here's one: if Star Trek is banned, and even mentioning it sets off alarms, then why was it mentioned in other episodes? Like, Hermes compares DOOP to the Federation in "Brannigan Begin Again". And in "Space Pilot 3000" Fry asks Leonard Nimoy to do the "live long & prosper" sign. But in "Where no Fan Has Gone Before" Nimoy claims he has never heard of Star Trek.

Teral: why can't we have international waters just because every nation responds to one president?
Every american state follows one president, but there is still federal laws. 
Nowadays people (sort of) use the United Nations as a government for the whole world, but there still clearly are international waters.
International means between nations.
Just like the US is divided into states, the states are divided into constituencies(?) and they have cities... so is the earth divided into countries. 
Now, I cant think of any references at the moment, but i'm sure there are countries which arent 100% in agreeance (thank you Fred Durst) with everything Richard Nixon and the previous Earth Presidents stand for.  Therefore, they would have a hard time creating laws for the middle of the ocean that would happify (i invented that word) all the nations.

Sorry for the late response.

When the European Common Market was introduced, it meant a goodbye to duty-free shopping, when travelling between member-states. The reasoning was, since you don't travel between (economically) independent nations, you can't buy dutyfree, because you never left the European Union. I hope my point survived that horrible sentence.

The problem with the UN is it doesn't wield any political power, except the one granted to it by the memberstates. If a nation haven't signed, and ratified, a treaty the rules doesn't apply to that nation (Kyoto anyone).

Anyway. If Nixon is named Earth President, it would imply he was the leader of the entire planet. Otherwise it would as misleading as the term World Series if it only covered North America, oh wait.  wink

Moving along: my goof hinges entirely on the fact that Earth President means Nixon is the leader of the entire planet. This again mean the legislation coming from Nixon (and an previously unseen parliament) affect the entire globe. Afterall there aren't any "interstate, free-for-all water" in Lake Michigan just beacuase it happen to be split among 4 or 5 states. American law still apply.

Similar to an Earth government, it wouldn't make any sense if universal law only applied to land, and a few nautical miles out. The only ones who would use the ocenas of Earth are Earthicans, so why have an "international free-for-all water". when nationstates doesn't exist anymore.

I hope at least some of my ideas is readable from the above.

Similarly to this, in “A Head in the Polls,” once Bender gets rich from selling his body, a waiter lifts Bender’s antenna off to mix the martini. Yet in “I, Roommate” Bender seems pretty upset about the idea of removing “Little Bender” at all. It seems like if he can remove his antenna at will, taking it off temporarily while in the apartment shouldn’t be a big deal; he certainly shouldn’t have to threaten to cut it off later on (even if he was drunk!).

did anyone notice how in Less Than Heroes Morris complained of animal hair allergies towards the end of the ep even though in the opening scene he had Munda's cat sitting beside him on the couch. And did you notice that besides that one scene we never see the cat again? i wanna see the kitty!

In "Hell is Other Robots," Bender joins RObotology and quits drinking alcohol, thinking that drinking alcohol is a sin, yet in "The Bird-Bot of Ice-Catraz," we learn robots need a certain amount of alcohol or they will get arrested.

So for robots, what's the real sin here: drinking alcohol, or being alcohol-free?!

I believe that mineral oil is a valid substitute for alcohol, as far as fueling a robot's circuits goes.

Why, thank you.  big grin

There are lots of other times like this when it comes to Bender's construction, though (not that I mind). Sometimes I'll be watching the crew stuck down in some hole or something, and Bender doesn't extend his legs (as he did in "Fry and the Slurm Factory" ) to save even himself. I'll have to look a little to see which (if any) specific episodes are like this, though...

In regards to Bender's arm reappearing in "Hell is Other Robots", I believe that there were initially two additional scenes between Beelzebot kicking Bender away and the Beastie Boys sequence. This is why they skip from Level 2 to Level 5.

And another goof in the "Security Guard" scene in 1ACV10, "A Flight to Remember": Bender's bowtie continually disappears and reappears as he is beaten up.

That's because it's magnetic, and so keeps getting attached to the security bots? (lame excuse I know...)

I won't bother to read all this, so I don't know if this is said before, but here goes:

In "The problem with Popplers" when Leela finds out that they're alive, she licks her fingers. The visuals clearly shows her licking all her 4 fingers once each, but the sound sounds like 5 fingers being licked.

In 'A Byclops Made For Two' when everyone says 'Ohhhhhhhhhh!' after Leela says 'Why didn't you change in the one place that mattered', Fry has four arms.
In 'Bendin' In The Wind' The robot and human singers share the same microphone, but on another shot they have seperate microphones.
In 'Less Than Hero' when Fry jumps for the Gemerald Leela shouts 'Fry! No! You won't fall fast enough' giving away his identidy to everyone.
