is it just me or has there been a lot of references to zombies in the latest episodes ?? 


Roswell That ends Well
Fry : 'His body was vapourized so there's no chance of him coming back as a zombie.'
(even though in past...)

The Sting
Hermes : 'that way his zombie doesn't come back looking for his final paycheck'

Farnsworth Parabox
Hermes : 'God bless her zombie bones'

Farnsworth also said things like 'Holy Zombie Jesus'.

I think they are just a common idea on the show.

There's a cut scene from The Deep South (2ACV12) where the Professor is talking in his sleep, and he says "Zombie Jesus? And he's here for dinner? But I have nothing prepared..."

Ah - well I haven't seen any further than Time Keeps On Slippin' because I'm...

a) in England
b) Don't have sky

I've seen a couple of odd ones when I've been babysitting, but that's about it.

Isn't it Jenny McNeal?  I think DXC says Ally McNeal by mistake in the commentary.

this is my semi-obscure reference that i dont want to paste into every episode that contains a zombie reference in the capsules
Hermes is ALWAYS talking about zombies.  The song Zombie Jamboree has HEAVY jamaican/reggae melody.
Coincidence? i think not!

In the future, a zombie holocaust of the likes seen in the Dead trilogy occurred and the dead were too slow and stupid to conquer the Earth people reorganised and fought the dead off. The new world order was built and it slumped back into the corrupted world like ours and now dead bodies are set for organised disposition.

Zombies are part of Haitian and other Afro-Carribean and African-American folklore, that includes Jamaica.

The best zombie reference is in a deleted scene from The Deep South on the Season 2 DVD.
Everyone is sleeping on the top of the ship as the sun is setting. The camera pans across each of the characters slowly, until it reaches Proffesor Farnsworth. He's talking in his sleep

"Zombie Jesus?, and he's coming to dinner!...
But I have nothing prepared...."

Brilliant! Laugh Out Loud Funny!

Wait a second raybow55 your post is just a word for word copy of mine. I guess you just want to use the quote button, it's much easier.
Or perhaps by some incredible coincidence you didn't actualy see my post, and expressed your views on the same scene is exactly the same way?!

Wow, that was incredibly offensive, but also, strangely logical.

Anyhow, plain and simple, Zombies are funny. The word "Zombie" is quite humorous as is the word "Mummy."

Hanukkah and Chanukah are the same festivals in Judaism (to the best of my knowledge - correct me if I'm wrong), so I guess Chanukah Zombie and Hanukkah Zombie are different spellings of the same zombie which are phonetically the same.

Okay, I'll explain this.  As you all should know, Hebrew is written with a different alphabet.  Spelling "Chanukah" with "ch" is a transliteration more faithful to the original Hebrew.  In Hebrew "Chanukah" begins with that gutteral, German-ish back-of-the-throat sound.  The "ch" represents that gutteral sound.  But the problem is, Americans have trouble making that sound, so they substitute the "h" sound for the "ch" sound.  And that's where the alternate spelling "Hanukkah" comes in.

It's not necessarily the Osbournes we know.  Also, who knows, It's not as if Jesus is a head in a jar!

Hm. Head jars.
Are the heads in the head jars supposed to be human heads or robot simulations?

How could they possibly have Washington's head which would have rotted away long before the technology was around?


M Jackson: I think that "Zombies Ate my Neighbours" and "Zombies" was the same game.
Zombies Ate my Neighbours was a game where you had to get to your neighbours before the Monsters got them and there are potions and a humongous baby that would crush you...

Anyway, this isn't a games thread so I'll shut up about that game now.

That's what I always wondered . . . I just assume they're cloned heads, but will we ever get a definite answer!?

What we know:

1. You must be dead to have your head in a jar(this was discussed somewhere else, Zack, but I forget where).

2. However, the heads are obviously still alive with their previous souls.

3. There are numerous references to zombies.

Therefore, all heads in jars are zombies, and the technology exists to bring people back to life. It fits all these lines:

Fry : 'His body was vapourized so there's no chance of him coming back as a zombie.'
(a constant worry in the future)

Hermes : 'that way his zombie doesn't come back looking for his final paycheck'
(someone brings him back to life, he asks for his paycheck)

Hermes : 'God bless her zombie bones'
(she died, came back, and died again. alright, that's a stretch, but it's the best I got.)

"Zombie Osbournes" (a TV show with heads in jars)

Also to think about: Why didn't they bring Fry's cousin Phil back to life? I mean, he was the original martian.
