I just noticed in "Loves labors lost in space" Farnsworth says:
Farnsworth: Each pount of dark matter weighs over 10,000 pounds.

I can't believe I only noticed that while watching the episode with subtitles. Has anyone else over looked this or am I the only one?

Ok then  smile
How about this quote from 'Xmas Story'.  Fry, Leela, Bender and Tinny Tim are running from Santa, who is, of course, trying to kill them.
Farnsworth: "Oh dear, they'll be killed on our doorstep! And there's no trash pickup 'till January 3rd!"

I like that "I am already in my pajamas" joke that we see in the first two episodes. I wish they had continued that.

Farnsworth is incredibly stupid. I love in "A big peice of garbage" when he puts the bomb timer on the wrong way up.
Morbo: Blame lies with known professor Hubert Farnsworth and his tiny inferior human brain!
...and then he is holding the manual the wrong way up big grin

i like when he is searching for Kazuzu....
"Kazuzu? KaZUZU? KaZUZU?"

i also like his call in 'Fry and the Slurm Factory':
"Who are those disgusting orange creatures over there"
"Why there the grunka lunka's (or something like that)"
"Tell them I hate them."

i liked him better in the begining as a smiling senile old man, now all he says is:

"Shut up!" or "your aparment smells like cat pea!"

They should try to being back the old farnsworth, i mean younger farnsworth, at least for one episode not that tennage leela's hurdles one mind you, but at least have him lighten up a bit.

However it is somewhat sad, that they completely dumped the Professor-Fry relationship.
That's why I found the it strange how the Professor did react to Enos's death. After all, that did not only put Fry's life in jeopardy, but also the Professor's.

I think that was sort of a nod in the direction of an old gradeschool science class joke that I'm sure everyone has heard:

Q: "Which weighs more: a pound of feathers or a pound of lead?"

A: "Neither!  It's a trick question!  They both weigh exactly the same: one pound!"

A very similar joke is made in TMLH when Fry attempts to catch the falling Gemerald by hurtling after it.  Leela wisely shouts to him, "No, Fry!  You can't fall fast enough!"  This is true; they will both fall at the same rate and the Gemerald had a head start so he could never overtake it.

In TWOF, Fry says that one of Nibbler's "steamers" weighs "as much as a thousand suns!"  This is likely an exaggertaion otherwise it would have at least crashed through the street's surface to the Sewers of ONY, if not destroyed the entire planet by plummeting to the Earth's core and causing some sort of implosion.   

There was another ep where Prof. mumbles some pseudo-scientific gibberish and then tells eveyone, "the words I just spoke made perfect sense."  I hit the floor with laughter when I heard that.  It was so funny the way they lampponed the typical Sci-Fi plot device of having spurious science save the day.  Could someone remind me what ep that was? 

BTW, I have no idea why this discussion couldn't have been dropped into my "FARNSWORTH PATERNITY RUMOR" thread.    up yours

Firstly, just to be pedantic   tongue - it was LTH, not TMLH   wink.

Secondly, the episode you're thinking of is "The Honking", where the Professor explains how robots can appear as ghosts. The commentary on the commentary on the joke is equally hilarious   wink.

Presumably the Professor's life was less threatened than Fry's. Fry is only two generations removed from Enos (or not, depending on your point of view), whereas the Professor is around 25 generations removed - thus there is far less of Enos' DNA in the Professor than in Fry (making the Professor much less susceptible to changes in the timeline at this point).

Cyberknight already gave the correct answer, but this also reminded me of "Time Keeps On Slipping", where Bubblegum Tate gives his techno-babble explanation why time slips happen at the basketball match. Farnsworth reply: "Yes, I see. Something involving that many big words could easily destabilize times itself."

Techno-babble was mocked in "Kif Gets Knocked Up A Notch" too. When Attila the Hun yell to Zapp "don't shoot firestick in spacecanoe, cause explosive decompression!", to which Zapp say "spare me your spaceage  technobabble."

Even though I love Star Trek, I also love to see it's more annoying elements mocked.

Hey, now that I think of it, that was probably also supposed to be a Jewish thing.  Israel is the only country I know where a professor arrives at the auditorium to deliver his lecture in a three-piece suit and open-toed sandals.  That's more of a specifically Israeli thing than Jewish in general, but I'm sure they knew what they were doing when they put that in.  Remind me to dig up that old mispelled thread of mine and add it in there.      laff

Oh, don't be so horny. It's a lot more appealing and interesting when the (admittedly horny) animators tease you a little and leave the rest up to the imagination. Which they tend to do quite a bit.

And since I don't want to get lynched for making a non-Farnsworth post in the Farnsworth thread:
The Professor is my favorite mad scientist. He is just so much fun. At first I thought that he was tough to write for, but after experimenting with him a bit while writing my stuff, I've realized that the possibilites are quite endless!  big grin
