I noticed something in 'A Bicyclopse Built for Two', which I hadn't noticed before. I think it might be a very subtle hint. Anyway, when Leela meets Alcazar for the very first time in real life, on his home planet, the first thing he does is jumps down from a very high height. Any normal person jumping from such a height would probabaly break their legs.

A thought came to mind though. Perhaps this was a very subtle hint showing that Alcazar isn't really the man he says he is. His true form is a grasshopper, and grasshoppers can jump from very high heights. It's just a thought that sprung to mind, a possible subtle hint, but maybe I'm looking too far into this  wink What do you think?

Anyway, I know we already have a goof thread, but this isn't a goof. And I know we have a subtle humour thread, but this isn't really humourous either, hense the new thread, and topic. Also, any other subtle hints people may have found, and picked up on, can be posted in here.

Otis, do you really want me to list the numerous times Fry has fallen from great heights and walked away from it?

I'm thinking of "War is the H-Word" in particular.

As early as SP3K we saw examples of Leela's super-human strenght and agility. Based on her actions (and the fact that we didn't know for sure she was a mutant back then) Alcazars jump didn't seem that big a deal.

Yeah, but we're talking all important first impressions here. Well... second if you count the internet, but first impressions in real life.

We ought to count how many head injuries Fry sustains. He's hit his head more times than humanly possible, even for a cartoon!

that's actually a pretty good idea for an episode, kinda like when fry drinks 100 cups of cofee, it could turn out to be quite funny

Here's something I thought was interesting (stop me if someone else pointed this out already or I'm stating the obvious): In "Luck of the Fryrish" Fry finds a 7-leaf clover, which is ridiculous since no one's seen a clover with more than 4 leaves (I assume). They seem to poke fun at themselves for making a 7-leaf clover with the following lines:

Fry: "(yadayada)...septuple head-spin!"
Yancy: "(yadayada)...nobody's ever done more than a quadruple!"

Eh? Eh?

that's a pretty cool find, but what if they were referring to the fact that the 7 leaf clover might have been mutated, and it was his luck to find a mutant clover, which is referring to fry being lucky enough to find leela, a mutant, and that they might eventually get together

yeah its pretty far fetched and im probably over analyzing but so what

Hey I found a 6 leaf clover in my back yard once. No lie! And it wasn't mutated...as far as I know.

One of the Wizard of Oz books had a seven-leaf clover in it, I seem to vaguely recall from my childhood.  I don't expect there's a connection.

Was it a three-leaf clover that looked like each leaf was divided in half? Unless it was 6 individual leaves, I think it was just a 3-leaf. Otherwise I've seen far too many 6-leaf clovers in my life.

In "The Honking," even when the characters think the other car has followed Bender, we can figure out it's him from the design of the car.  They discuss on the DVD commentary that the viewers can figure it out, but that there isn't one single moment when we should know.  But I guess we're supposed to figure it out, since it isn't treated as a surprise when the fortune teller explains everything.

And I've seen six-leaf clovers before, with six distinct leaves coming from one stem.

Seven leaf clover just sounds extremely lucky...
How about a thirteen leaf clover though?

 I think Ken Keeler said in that commentary he was hoping the viewer would think the car that chased those two bums around was the car on the moor. I found that a bit silly though considering that the Bender car is gray and the car that hit Bender was clearly red.  hmpf

When that happened I just thought the werecar had been following him or something. I didn't really know what was going on for a long time.

That's when my sister figured it out, too.  (I knew the plot before I saw the episode, so in a way I never figured it out.  But in another, more accurate way, I knew going in.)

Yeah, when the car honked I just thought it was like Bender's cousin or something.

I knew going in, as well, but it was clear enough with the DiMaggio honk. I should ask my brother or sister when they figured it out... but they are all in bed.

Now, if we're talking about foreshadowing:

Zoidberg: They're tastier than an unguarded penguin nest!
(Problem With Popplers)
Fry:We were sent in for eating penguin eggs.  Zoidberg ate most of them. (Birdbot of Ice-catraz)

Fry: ...And brains flew through space!
(Cryonic Woman)

You raise some good points, Nix. I never realised those such obvious hints, until now, when they've been pointed out to me...

Continuing the trend:

Zoidberg in WMIBACIL, "Fry, it's been a while, so remind me; disembowling of your species fatal or non-fatal?" Fast forward to "Roswell That Ends Well", and we see that disembowling isn't fatal for Decapodans, making Zoidy's question in WMIBACIL legit.

About the "chopping right here, in the gonads!" line, while pointing at Fry's neck: look at Zoidy in "Fear Of A Bot Planet" when he come out of the restroom, he's zipping up his shirt, sugesting Decapodan gonads are located in the neck-area.

wow, that is very interesting

so zoidberg would be a very succesful doctor on the decapodan planet, yet is a failure being a doctor for humans

i think someone or maybe me should investigate some other things zoidberg says and see if they fit for things zoidberg does
