in the why of fry, if fry went back to stop himself from getting frozen but then pushed himself into the pod than wouldnt it have been both fry and nibblers shadow in the 1st episode?

(i mentioned this in the tread about twof but i thought it could use its own thread)

No, because when we saw SP3k the events in "The Why Of Fry" hadn't taken place yet, visible by the Scooty Puff Jr.

After Fry decided to push himself in (and told Nibbler about the Scooty Puff Jr) a new timeline was created. If we could see SP3k in that timeline, we'd probably see Frys shadow beside Nibblers.

But that's just my idea of it, from a layman's point of view, there's a lot more indepth time-travel/quantum reality discussion in this thread

Fry finds his old dog (fossilised) in a museum exhibit. It's done the same way as "Luck Of The Fryrish", with flashbacks intermixed with present (ie future) events. A very wellwritten and moving episode. For more info read the spoilers (but be prepared that doing so would ruin the emotional impact of the episode). I recommend watching the episode first.

Yeah, me too.    puke

Ja, and this paradox thingamajoo can be explained with parrallel universes.

Fry knows that he originally gets frozen by the Nibblonians, so he goes back to prevent it from happening, thus creating a new box... I mean universe. Not box.

For some reason in Jarassic Bark we see this universe instead of the original.

Or whatever, maybe it has something to do with monkey wizards or something, I don't know.

I know what he is saying, see the thing is once Fry went back in time to push himself in, It was always Fry who pushed himself in because he stopped nibbler from doing it therefore it never happened. Hmmm.... I guess that every episode before McSeason 5 is a view of a universe paralell to the on where Fry pushed him self in, that was created when he traveled back in time because of some timetravel side effect. Though I'm basicly saying what Killbot Bot Jnr said again in different words.

The what-if machine shows alternate realities, not the truth. Also that's not why he went back in time or what we're talking about.
