In this episode, the crew heads out fishing on the PE ship, which doesn't float in the water, but in the air. Yet when Leela catches Zoidberg holding the boot, she throws him back into the water. In the next scene, he is aboard the ship cutting the "unbreakable diamond filament". How did he get back up here, wizards?   tongue

Another thing I noticed happens pretty soon after this. Hermes' swimsuit is seen floating up to the surface after the ship sinks, but he was wearing them when he went into the ship with everyone else. I'm assuming the ship is airtight, of course, so how did his suit escape?

Lol! You guys make me laugh with all your so 'logical, pratical' sense of things.
Of course sometime, somethings doesn't fit so much, but who cares?
First, Zoidberg may run, or something like that.  And for the swimsuit of Herme, it's just Funny.
It's like when Leela (In an episode I don't remember the title) Says, JUST before the add:
''IF only I would have two or three minutes to think about it'.
In the world of Futurama, it doens't make sense, but it's still funny.
I won't keep y'a!  smile smile

You know, I think Futurama has the most educated writers in the TV business, so I, for one, would have expected them to make the eps. logical. And they try to make them logical too, so I think it's kinda fun to figure out where they have gone wrong.

Maybe, but the thing with the house of Zoidberg burned out by benders' cigare is SO UNLOGICAL that it is a SURE thing that this stuff is VOLONTARY.  If it's not, I don't have any other choices to escape this world by...killin' myself!

Through the cargo bay. Someone, probably Fry, opened it for him. Zoidy can move pretty quickly when he need to, so those few moments while Amy scream about her fabulous body being ruined is all he need.

Probably a spare-suit. I mean it did look awfully big, and Hermes like them snug.

By the way, if you noticed anything else in this episode that you think isn't deserving of its own subject, you can put it here, like some other "stuff in" threads.

You're probably right about that one DOM, it probably was voluntary. But they really do try to make the show logical where appropriate, at least according to some of the commentaries..

Aahh! Another joke explained. I'd forgotten that the fade to black denotes an ad-break.

Thank you DOM, I've had a bonus chuckle.

Here's a thought. We do have torches that work under-water. Why wouldn't there be cigars that work under-water in the future?

There was no lava involved.  It burned down because of Bender's cigar.  The real question is how the cigar could burn underwater.

Those torches are magnesium-based.  I suppose that Bender's cigars could have magnesium in them, but such a cigar would probably be lethal to humans.  Also, burning magnesium is blinding to look at.

I'm not sure how Greek fire could be put into a cigar.  That doesn't sound very likely either.

Yes hello there my good chums I spotted something too.

Now if you watch the deleted scene for "When alians attack"   There in the car driving to the beach when fry says.

Fry: why are we going to a man made beach.

Amy: you cant swim in the real oceans any more
          there are to many whales.

Professor: Yes after we stoped hunting them there
                    numbers swelled as did there taste
                    human flesh.

and in "the deep south" there watching a whale and a squid fight. it dosent mean that the whale should have gone for fry or anything.

I just thought i would point that out.  no no

If people no longer hunt whales, where do they get the whale oil to power their cars?

This scene was probably deleted because they didn't want to imply that we should kill all whales. Therefore whale oil comes from hunted whales, and the whale not attacking Fry is normal.

Or if you don't like that, the oil-making gene in whales was put into a bunch of third world kids; and the whale was too concerned about the squid to notice Fry.

We never actually see Hermes go into the ship bafore it sinks. It is possible that he lost it while we were watching Doctor Zoidberg try and brake the the rope.

yeah, intentional logic gags like the Zoidberg's house burning down are fun and ok. the joke is that it doesn't make sense.

it's the script continuity goofs and outright animation screwups that are harder to excuse.

anyway, Zoidberg has a 'gas bladder' (from Roswell) and Bender's ass can be used as a floatation device. so i guess they can adjust their bouyancy if they wanted to. but the boots...?

for those who don't already know, notice the roof turret of the PES also, it changes size and position during the fishing segment. and it's even completely missing sometimes! the only explaination, drunk cartoonists...

It's made of the same stuff as the 'anger dome' in 'Kif gets knocked up...'.

What about Amy's sunburn? She gets totally frazzled, and then as snoon as they get to the bottom of the ocean it's all gone again. And it can't just be the lighting underwater, because while they're underwater traveling down, we can still see her sunburn. It's just when they've got to the very bottom it suddenly disappears...

Even today we have somewhat effective sunburn lotions available, imagine what 1000 years of development would do.

The infirmery on the PE ship probably have a dermal regenerator for brun injuries, she could've used that one too.
