I have a strange theory.  I think that fry was responsible for the fact that the flying brains couldn't affect him.  Remember in roswell that ends well he impregnates his own grandmother causing himself to become his own grandfather thus he is in definition inbred.  This may have been the cause for his wierd brain wave pattern.  So it is actually his own fault that the nibblonians picked him out and froze him.

This bout of insanity I have just come across is all your fault with all your stuff about time and space and loopy looping.

I'm pretty sure that in either "The Day The Earth Stood Stupid" or "The Why Of Fry" Nibbler or Ken or one of the Nibblonians said something like ".... delta brain waves do to being his own grandpa...."

Seriously though, we won't ever really know the answer unless time-travel is ever actually invented.[/QUOTE]
  If it was invented, dont you think thet we would be surrounded by futureistic people
telling us what to do and what not to? Even if they didnt, eventually someone will slip up and say something and cause the"past" generations to do something, alterating the future and possibly creating more time "travelers"  roll eyes

I just had a thought. When Fry asks the Infosphere those questions about stamps and dinosaurs, instead he could have asked if Seymour had a happy life. Or what happened to Seymour after he got frozen? Then when he found out, that would have added even more emotion to the infosphere scenes. Then, when he got teleported back to the past, he could have ran to get Seymour, who would have been waiting. Then get Seymour to follow him up to the cryotubes, then put Seymour into the Cryotube to get frozen with himself! I know it's a pretty stupid cliched idea, but my mind wondered...

But if you go back and watch "Jurassic Bark" again after seeing your version of "The Why of Fry" it would rob the ending of meaning, because you'd know that Fry later goes back in time and saves his puppy.

Whichever weird explanation we go with, the stuff future Fry does in 1999 affects the future so freezing Seymour would change the ending of Jurassic Bark and indeed just about every other Futurama episode since he would now have his dog right from the beginning. Plus, he only had a short time to stop Nibbler from pushing him into the tube so there's no way he could get to Panucchi's Pizza and back before getting frozen.

Weeeeernstrum!  wink

*hits David A and Weeeernstrum with a thick plank*

Tell me this, when you watch 'Space Pilot 3000' now, do you see two shadows or one? Unless you've been spice weaseled, you'll still see one. It already happened before 'The Why of Fry', and even though the events of 'The Why of Fry' changed the past, the original past will have always existed on it's own time continuim.

The events that originally happened in 'Space Pilot 3000' and 'Juassic Bark' will always remain the same before the future happening. When things in the future change the past, it creates a new time continuim, but the old one will forever remain. Hence the ending of 'Jurassic Bark' not changing. However, you're getting confused because a new ending will be created, but although it will replace the original ending, the original ending happened before it got replaced, which is when we see it.

Pffft.  I never even noticed the one shadow to begin with.  I guess I'm not very observant.

Then why are there two shadows in the flashback in "Jurassic Bark"?  You can't have it both ways.

That wasn't what I was talking about.  I meant that it would ruin the emotional impact of the ending, because you'd think, "Hey, no big deal.  Fry gets his dog back in a later episode anyway."

Oh, and it's spelled "continuum" by the way.   tongue

But thats only after the second time contiuum existed. The original time continuum always existed, Space Pilot 3000 proved it.

It still happened before The Why of Fry, so at the end of Jurassic Bark, you dont know he's gonna get his dog back, so therefore it hasn't ruined the ending.

Yes but if you watch it again after seeing your version of "The Why of Fry" you do know that he's gonna get his dog back.

::Kill-O-Zaps David A and Otis:: Oh, what was that about planks and sledgehammers? Can you two not accept that you have different fundamental views of how the universe works? ONe believes that it's one universe, one timeline and the other is more of the multi-timeline/universe (continuum) type... if I'm correct.

Truth one: There are many (infinite, actually) timelines and universes. I know this for a fact, because I've read THHGTTG
Truth two: If Fry got Seymour back, one way or another, it would spoil subsequent viewings of Jurassic Bark.

And these truths are indisputable... Done!

Its not a matter of beliefs. When you watch Space Pilot 3000 now, you do not see Fry under the desk grabbing Fry falling on the chair. However, in The Why of Fry he did just that. Judging by David A's theory, on subsequent viewings we would see Fry grabbing the chair, like in The Why of Fry.

*Inserts DVD into DVD player*

Watching Space Pilot 3000 now, we dont see Fry's hand grabbing the chair. This proves that future events have not changed the original time continuum. Remarkable...
Applying this rule based on fact to Jurassic Bark, would subsequently mean the original ending would forever remain. The theory being when future events change the past, it doesn't overide the original time continuum, instead it creates a new one. Then when we watch Futurama, we're always watching the original time continuum. Thus the original ending to Jurassic Bark would remain.

Well globviously it wasn't a typo, dont you get get jokes,sssss?  roll eyes

Something that I shouldn't have posted, apparently, since it just confused the issue.

I don't care about the whole single/multiple universes/timelines thing, but I see that Otis is still arguing against "David A's theory" whatever he thinks that that is.  Whatever.

The only reason that I mentioned the two shadows in "Jurassic Bark" was because Otis was using the fact that there is only one shadow in the pilot as proof that he was right about something or other.  I'm pretty sure that the real reason that there was only one shadow is that the writers hadn't thought of "The Why of Fry" yet.  Nibbler's shadow is there because they had already decided that Nibbler had caused Fry to be frozen, but they hadn't come up with the rest of it yet.  There are two shadows in "Jurassic Bark" because "The Why of Fry" was already in the works when "Jurrasic Bark" was made.  If J. Michael Straczynski had made Futurama he probably would have gone back and changed "Space Pilot 3000" so that there were two shadows.  He did that sort of thing on Babylon 5 all the time.

Now, maybe I'm wrong and the fact that there is only one shadow in "SP3K" and two in "Jurassic Bark" was planned all along, and proves whatever convoluted theory of time travel Otis is in favor of.  I don't care.

If Fry got Seymour back, it would ruin the ending of "Jurassic Bark" regardless of how it happened.  It wouldn't even have to involve time travel.  What if they made an episode where Fry changed his mind and decided to clone Seymour after all?  (He could if he wanted to.  He still has the fossilized dog.)  It would still ruin the emotional impact of "Jurassic Bark" because the ending would no longer have meaning.

[EDIT]This is a reply to Otis' thingy[/EDIT]
Yes, BUT our primitive brains would still just believe that Fry gets Seymour back, no matter if it's an alternate Fry. One gets miserable, the other gets the dog, but to a human mind, it'll just be Fry all the same... (most human minds at least). I am a true believer of alternate universes and that sort of stuff, but it can spoil ANY plot. Whatever you're watching, you'll ask yourself: "Wauw, what'll happen?", but if you apply the theory of alternate universes to everything, you'd answer your question by saying "Anything happens- I don't wanna watch this dungpile of a movie, because in an alternate universe something else will happen in it..." That's not how it works now, is it?
