Perhapes I can come up with a seamingly plausible explanation..   smile
The lady in the shop is the actor for "LightSpeed Briefs" advertisment. She just happened to shop there at Taylor's when the gang was there too..

Let's Globetrotter Chance's theory up a bit:

Fry have been at "Alien Overlord & Taylors", where the old lady work, before, so he has a vague memory of her.

The LightSpeed Briefs signal only carry the "script" for the comercial, and no information about the people, the setting, etc. Then the script search the memory of the target consumer, find one of his worst nightmares (like being naked in a public school), and use that as the setting of the comercial. The people are created using memories of actual people.

So, an individual comercial for each person, populated by people he's comfortable with and maybe even trust. And they help him overcome one of  his worst nightmares. Now, that's an efficient comercial. No wonder the PE crew felt compelled to buy Light Speed Briefs.

Loving that theory, Teral. Now there is a wizard among wizards.  laff

Something I noticed about "Fishful" while we're in the topic:
Now, I know they set this up as the joke, but in the dream, when The teacher points to the chalkboard, we go to Fry who's in his regular clothes. 2 second later he's in his underwear.
Wha?   confused

That's the only scene where we can really see Fry's body. If they'd have shown him in his underwear THEN, the whole ending of the dream would've been blown.

Besides, it's a dream. Anything can happen.

I was just thinking, if ONLY the Professor told Fry about his cloning machine when Fry had the anchovies...

Sure 'A Clone of My Own' happened after, but Cubert was being cloned for years...

perhaps they arent the same person at all.
maybe its a clone or a type of robot. but much more likely the creators just used her in the background because they already designed her for the episode and it would be cheaper to reuse her.

Hmm, does anyone ever notice that until someone else points it out? I didn't see that. Wow. in a way this is like what Zoidburg said in
"I Dated a Robot"

Welcome to PEEL, Amy  smile
Enjoy your stay, post a lot good text and have much fun.  smile

On Topic: I always thought that the commercial dreams are made by professional dream actors only.
On the other hand, just have a look at Fry's second dream: It's with Leela and Bender!
So, either there are two different kind of dreams or it's rather difficult. Probably a machine reflects the brain-waves of dreaming people and adds a commercial information. In the sleeping persons brain those information will now be mixed with own memories to create a dream. That way commercial dreams would always fit perfectly to the dreamers personality.
Just an idea ...

For the second dream do you mean in A Fishful of Dollars and if you do then they said that it wasn't actually liquid but gamma radiation. Maybe they don't cast the commercials in the daytime.

I think the lady in the dream looks older than the storekeep woman. From these pictures, I can't tell. And when I watched that episode, I only really payed attention to Mom, the boys, and the Deccapod lady at the auction.

i think you're right: there are two different kinds of dreams: ads, and normal dreams. chances are, the companies only "air" the commercials when it's night in a certain area (in this case NNY). they wouldn't waste money advertising their product to only a few sleeping toddlers and old people. so when fry was asleep after getting robbed, there were no commercials on, so he just had a normal dream.
