In Roswell That Ends Well there is a shop when they go back in time called The Hard Croon Cafe (a parody to The Hard Rock Cafe) but The Hard Rock Cafe was first established 35 years ago.

So in 1947 there would be no Hard Rock Cafe to parody. The Futurama staff need to do some research.

RtEW wasn’t written in 1947, it was written in 2000 or so: By your own post, the "Hard Rock Café" had existed for thirty-some years, and could well have been the inspiration for a gag.

About zoidberg's mother thing, doesn't the woman say something along the lines of "sure you can be a doctor, if you want your parents to roll over in their graves!" surely that proves that she is not his mother!

Then when the noise is heard outside they all rush to he window.

In "Anthology of Interest 1" when Fry asked what would happen if he never went to the future-jiggy, he see's Leela, Bender, and Pr. Farnsworth all together in the Fry Hole, but Leela and Bender would never be with eachother and defiantly not with Farnsworth, because Bender would be dead if Fry never came to the future, and Leela would still work at the Cryogenic lab. Also, when Leela asks what it would be like if she were more impulsive, during the part when Zoidberg is slowly solving the murder in the parlor, Leela continuously turns the lights off once someone is about to reveal that it was her, and then kills that person. When Nibler starts yipping and pointing towards Leela, she turns the lights off and kills Nibler. According to the famous "Grandfather" paradox, shouldn't Fry technically cease to exist? Because later in the series we find out that Nibler went back in time in order to push Fry in to the cryogenic freezer, yet we see Fry later in the episode...

Actually, Nibbler didn't go back in time. He's just really old (and a celebrated pooper). He already did it, so there's no paradox!

Nibbler didn't go back in time - his people lack that ability!
Fry travlled back in time during the events of "TWoF."

I 'd like to know where this misconception that Nibbler time-travelled comes from.

It is known that Fry was in fact the one that ended up pushing himself into the cryogenic freezer, right? And without Nibler, Fry would have never been taken to the giant brain place in "TWoF", right? and he would have never gotten stuck in the brain after breaking his Scooty Puff Jr., and he would never have to go back in time and push himself in the freezer in order to save Leela, so then Fry would never be frozen and die sometime later in the 2000's and not exist in the future... (It's confusing but I think that's why I thought of this...)

Let's just say the stories in AOI 1 don't use the continuity of the series, and even if it did follow the continuity, then Leela could have still killed Nibbler and Fry would still exist, because you could blame it on the What If? machine being faulty.

Did anyone else notice that in The Bird-bot of Ice-catraz, the open the curtains and all the penguins are crushed up against the window.
However two seconds later they step outside and no penguins are crushed up against the outside of the building at all.
I know its supposed to be a joke  big grin So please don't reply to this saying so.

The answer is causality. If Fry never went to the future, it means he never disappeared from his present. Therefore, the series of events that occurred after his disappearance were inexorably changed. After 1000 years of subtle yet incremental changes in the timeline, there is no reason to believe that Leela would have ever worked at the cryogenic lab in the first place. It is plausible that Bender and her would have ended up working for Farnsworth because the physical world is bound by cause and effect; meaning future events usually occur the way they should.

Good point.
This isn't a goof, but I didn't want to start a new thread. In "War is the H-word", does anybody get the joke that the guy on the intercom system says? I think he says something like... "All troops report to tent 4.. I mean 5. Repeat, 4" and then it cuts to the scene of Zap, Kif, and Fry in the shower. The joke never made sence to me, does anyone get it?

I never go the joke in The deep south when Umbriel and Fry are next to the thing tht heats the water to 3,000 degrees, and then fry goes "ahhhhhhhhhhh" and Umbriel says "Did it just get colder" - I have a inklin' but it's either very close or way off.

I always saw that joke as fry taking a whiz in the water ! There is another one earlier in that episode where umbriel says "did it just get warmer ?" when fry urinates again !

Oh for the love of...

Look, the  was hundereds, maybe thousands of degrees next to the vent. Urine is about 98.5 degrees, and thus colder than the ambient water temperature.

Sorry if someone has posted this already, I looked through the search though!

Anyway, in AOI 2 when Fry is shooting the Space Invaders, he says that he is going to shoot up through his own shield. But, he has already done this on the screen shown as he is talking. Then, when it cuts to the wide shot of him shooting, there are no gaps in his shields.

I only noticed today when watching it and although it is small, thought I'd post it anyway.   smile

In the first episode, Fry is supposed to be frozen for 1000 years, but he technically is frozen for 1000 years minus a day. It's wrong!  eek

I know this isn't directly related to Futurama but.....

While watching the Simpsons a few days ago (The episode where they show what happens when Lisa says her first word) Homer says

"Well Bart can kiss my hairy yellow butt"

I was quite surprised to hear that, as I think the episode is from before Futurama

In the Cryogenic Woman when Leela offers her hand to her boss so that he can scan her chip, Leela has 5 fingers.

Also, in The Sting, why was there no blood coming from Fry's enormous puncture wound from the bee?  I mean it skewered him so bad that his spleen was ruptured.  You'd think there would be blood.
And come to think about it, Bender would have had to fly the ship back to Earth fairly quickly and get them to a hospital since Leela was pumped full of poison and Fry was unconsious with a stinger through him.

Because, and many videogames do this, the appearance of blood gives it a higher age rating, thats why certain games don't have blood, even though people get killed in them

Or at least that's what I've heard, anyway

Oh, I just thought of something better - he had the stinger RIGHT THROUGH HIM. no room for blood to escape around it - that's why you don't remove a knife if you see someone's been stabbed - they'll most likely bleed to death, and the knife helps hold the blood in

Well there was blood from that cut Fry got on his arm from "Insane in the Mainframe," and he bled when Zoidberg cut off his arm.

I'm not asking for a waterfall of blood pouring from his guts, I'm just surprised that there wasn't even a teeny bit on his shirt or something.  It would have add a little more drama to the scene.

Well, like mookie said before, the more the blood, the more age rates it gets. You see blood from the Rugrats when one of the poop machines has a cut, so a simple wound wouldn't hurt with some blood.

I understand that in such injuries, the impaling object has a tourniquet effect, sealing the 'vital fluids' inside.

Ralph Snart would be able to talk about it more authoritatively.

lol got a bit of blood lust, eh Jenny?  I kid, I kid.  smile

Ok, so there's probably an explanation for this, but I've always wondered why Leela stays with the rest of the crew when they visit Mars University.  Fry and Amy are enrolled (how Fry managed to afford that is another question), Farnsworth is teaching and running his experiment, and Bender is living in Robot House and helping to corrupt the innocence of a bunch of robots, but what is Leela doing?  The crew spends alot of time there; I'd say at least a couple of weeks.  So, what, Leela just hangs out in the ship for that long and follows Fry and Guenter around between classes?

I think she is just exploring the planet.  Or she actually went back to earth for a while to take care of nibbler.

And didn't they spend a whole semester there?  Or was it just to midterms?  I'm guessing the later.

it might have been a whole semester.  I'm not really sure.  Actually though, I don't think Fry would have lasted that long.  Maube it was just the first test that he took?  I dunno how it works in other schools but for me that would make it about a month into the semester.

Depends on the class.  Some of my classes had a test maybe once a month, while some of my other classes only had 2 tests - a midterm and a final.  Since the sign on the chalkboard just said "test today" he might have only been in college for about a month.

Unless the Professor had other deliveries for her, what else is there for her to do?  It's not like Leela really has any friends outside of the PE crew.

She could have gone home between scenes, though.

Because Fry was killed instantly, and his heart stopped pumping blood.  What little pressure was left in his body wasn't enough to squeeze any blood past the fat cork of the big honkin' stinger.

Wait, you say...Fry was not really dead?  Ah! But he was dead IN LEELA'S DREAM, and that's all we saw after the stinger hit!

Fry may have actually bled like a stuck pig in the real ship (though I doubt it, for reasons mookie pointed out); we never would have seen it, cause we parted company from reality right about then and didn't rejoin it until two weeks later in the hospital.

Which brings me to....

Amen to her fic. I really didn't get some stuff until I read her fic-that just happened to be one of the questions I had, too.
Back to the mistakes, though-
In ABBFT, right when everyone stops whooping at Leela's insult to Al, Fry lowers his arms. In that brief scene, he has four arms...?
