I always had this take on what happened in Roswell That Ends Well...

Fry was told that his grandfather was Enos, and he had died in a war, soon after getting his grandmother pregnant. However, his grandfather died because he (Fry) had took him to an A-Bomb testing ground. When Fry went back and tried to "protect" Enos from dying in the war, he was only doing what had happened the first time around. After Fry kills his "grandfather", he goes to comfort Mildred. Fry "does the nasty in the pasty", and the next morning leaves. Where's to say that Mildred hadn't had sex with Enos before hand, and just wasn't sure whom the father was? Clearly, it's Fry, but Mildred could've just assumed that it was Enos.
It's an interesting to to why Fry's immune to pain, albeit not to logical. The "brain thing" on the other hand could be a logical explaination to why he seemingly doesn't feel any pain.

The extra hands...that's just a momentary mirage effect from heat differential in the atmosphere.  The atmostphere on Alkazar's planet was thicker than Earth's (you can tell because the sky is darker) and so refracts light more than Terrestrial atmo does.  The sunlight reflecting off all the white dresses created a warm layer that happened to drift by Fry while he was moving his hands, creating a temporary illusion of doubling.

As for Fry's genetics...I believe there is more inbreeding going on than Fry's ancestor-(ancestress-?)impregnation.  I suspect that Mildred's and Enos's families have had marriage links in the past, and that is why Enos resembles Fry so much.  They are from a small rural community, it would be hard not to be related in some way if the families have both lived there for any length of time.

And of course Mildred would say that Enos was the father.  It was frowned on, but grudgingly allowed, for engaged couples to have sex; it was the sole circumstance where unwedded mothers could retain a shred of respectability. 

As for the name Yancy...another theory: Enos was the younger son of his father; he had an older brother called Yancy, who was killed during WWII before he could have any children.  So Enos had promised his father to name his first son Yancy to continue the slightly broken family tradition.

Well, actually, with the exception of the hair, there was little similarity between Fry and Enos...

As for "Yancy", it's obviously a goof on the writers part, but in another mind; I suggest that this may be where "Yancy" originated from: In 1950, when Fry was with Mildred, we never saw him mention his name. Being my normal lame self, I always just pretend that Fry may have told Mildred that he was called "Yancy" (his brother's name) to avoid suspision (because Fry's stupid, he thinks that if somehow he got into trouble, he could just blame his brother?), and Mildred obviously told her son Yancy (Fry's father) about the actually fling with "Yancy" (Fry). Of course, when Fry was born, he never learnt about "Yancy" (himself in the future) having the fling and was just lead to believe that Mildred's ex-boyfriend Enos was his grandfather.

God, I'm so sad coming up with intelligent theories like that, completely out of no where, just to explain something.

edit: oh, as for the extra-arms... uh... he went back in time, before Leela's wedding, and merged the two Fry's together. So, when Fry applauds, the past version of himself isn't applauding because in his world it hasn't happened yet... uh...yeah...  roll eyes

Er....1947, not 1950.

And Yancy Sr. never said his father was named Yancy.  He said (paraphrase) "just like my grandfather before me, and his father, all the way back to Minuteman Yancy Fry."  So, good save, but there's actually no need for Fry to claim to be named Yancy.

And it's just that the hair is SO similar that I think they have to have SOME genes in common.

Ah, I just say 1950 as it's easier. I'd forget 1947 and say 1942, or 1497 or something. I suck with dates...

Ah, never actually paid enough attention to that quote... I always just assumed he said "just like my father, grandfather etc.". Looks like the writers may have actually planned Fry and Mildred all along, similar to the Nibbler thing.

There are plenty of people in the real world who have similar hair. They don't all have SOME genes in common... it was obviously just a coincidence. Or in the animators words "intentional"...

Okay, when Fry sleeps with his grandma, his dad is half Fry, half his grandma. Then Fry's parents have him and he's half his dad's genes, which consists of half his grandma and half of himself. So what would that half of himself be made up of? Doesn't it just continually loop or something? I don't think it's possible to be your own grandfather. But then there's the problem with Fry lacking the Delta Brain Wave. It wouldn't be possible for him to resist the brains without it.

It is possible to be your your own grandfather (well maybe not in real life yet, util we invent a time machine or something) anyway it took me ages to figer it out, but it does seem possible.

its not exactly a theory because thats actually why he lacks the "delta brain wave" it was answered in the episode where Fry saves the universe from the brains. that Fry is his own grandfather.

Fry doesnt have an inability to feel pain! He was screaming when Zoidberg cut off his arm, I cant remember the other times where he loses limbs, I need to watch more futurama! Anyway if your talking about the pipe gone through him, that didnt affect him because of the worms.

Or maybe, just maybe its all a cartoon!! God Dammit, why do people have to dissect this show over and over?!? When Daffy Duck gets shot in the face and nothing happens except his beak spins, people dont say, "Maybe its due to inbreeding!"

sorry about the rant it just annoys me that people take it so seriously.

The difference is that Looney Tunes cartoons are able to have whatever crazy stuff they want - characters getting blown apart then being fine in the next scene, walking on thin air and not falling until they look down, people running into a painting. Futurama, while hardly an ultra-realistic show, does have some level of rules about what can happen so none of those things are OK unless they are accompanied by some sort of sci-fi explanation.

I was just using it as an example, I could use another example, people dont do it with The Simpsons, Homer is always getting injured to the point where he should die, but people dont try to come up with explanations for it they just accept it thats its a cartoon and its funny and they leave it at that!

I guess its just the Futurama fans, too many Futurama fans must have too much time on their hands or something.

anyway, he does tell zoidy that his lead pipe HURTS. and i am pretty sure that he has said ow once or twice in the show, such as when they are beating him on the water people planet and it hurts so bad he cries.

Dear notorious,

We are nerds. We need to discuss this shit. No one knows why, but arguing fine points of tv shows, movies, or books is like opium for nerds. Now, please don't tell us to drop the subject. It's impolite. We don't tell to stop having sex with sheep, because it doesn't hurt anyone, (except maybe the sheep, but it's not like there's a shortage of those) just like our arguing doesn't hurt anyone.

So, on topic now, maybe Zoidberg's claw is coated in a fine layer of painkiller/ckotting agent, so that's why he didn't bleed to death. Just throwing it out there.

Strangely, Wooter, I had a similar idea...that Decapodian claws cauterize as they cut, which is one of the reasons Zoidberg went into medicine. That takes care of the bleeding.  As for the pain, I think shock and emotion can account for that.  Fry got mad too fast to react to the sudden amputation, and was running on adrenaline until after the fight (at which point he got the morphine).

Are you saying that I fuck sheep or something? What the fuck was that about? I didnt go trying to piss people off or insult them, I just said that people are reading into things to much, and they should just relax and enjoy the show.

Often serious injuries don't hurt much, or don't hurt until the next day. Until new rules required race car drivers be examined after accidents they would often go home and die the next day from bleeding in the brain. Soldiers who've had limbs blow off in explosions often say it doesn't hurt until the next day. I have a spot that got about 50 stitches a while back. When it happened it only felt like getting punched or hit by a baseball. Now when it was being cleaned out and internal stitches were be sutured in, that was the time to dance.

And perhaps the governement is covering up the fact that what we call Roswell actually happened in Utah.

This subject seriously boggles my mind. I tried to draw out Fry's genes using a pie chart. I had to keep plugginig in the end product(baby Fry) to the father side of Fry's dad's genes. (gotten from the "older" Fry) The fraternal side of both Fry and his dad keep getting smaller and smaller in percentage. Could someone help me out here?

I'm certain I've consumed at least 20 cups of coffee in a day before, no super speed but there was a bit of shaking. On many occassions I've consumed 4+ cups in an hours' time. 100 would be quite a bit; not a doctor, but I don't THINK it would be fatal tho, unless you had a serious heart condition to begin with...

At one time I found a website wherein one could calculate the amount of any caffeinated beverage you could drink without dying.  It said I could drink 101 cups of coffee without dying, and I'm not particularly massive.

Eddie's Theory for the Paternity of Fry:

Enis was obviously gay, and he never impregnated Fry's grandmother. He can be left out. After he died, she seduced Fry, thus making him his own grandfather. He then disappeared. When she found she was pregnant, she decided to marry as soon as possible and claim the baby was premature. She married the hapless local boy who'd always had a crush on her, Yance, and claimed he was the father. Her son was named after her husband. This explains how she can be Fry's paternal grandmother.
