Yeah, you've guessed it.  A thread all about our favorite little red lobster dude!  ^^  Now post here how much you love him and post your little quotes and what not.  You know, Zoidy related things!

Hooray! smile smile I've been waiting for a thread like this! big grin Zoidy is my absolute favourite character.
It's hard to say what my favourite "Zoidberg moments" are, but I love the scene in "the series has landed" where he gives Fry a checkup.  "Why must I be a crustacian in love" is a good episode, mainly because it has so much Zoidberg.  Also, I understand there's a Zoidberg episode early in season 5, and I'd be interested to hear from anyone who's seen it.

Remember this scene from 'Xmas Story'?

Zoidberg: "Amy, this is for you. A set of combs for your beautiful hair!"
Amy: "Oh, that's so sweet! But I sold my hair to a wigmaker so I could buy a set of combs for Hermes!"
Hermes: "Oh, the irony! I sold my hair so I could buy this third set of combs for Zoidberg!"
Zoidberg: "Thankyou!  These'll come in handy for my new hair! Finally, I look as pretty as I feel!"

Zoidberg: "Now open your mouth and let's have a look at that brain. No, nononono, not that mouth."
Fry: "I only have one."
Zoidberg: "Really?"
Fry: "Uh...is there a human doctor around?"
Zoidberg: "Young lady! I'm an expert on humans. Now pick a mouth, open it, and say" (warbling noise)
Fry: "Uh.." (clears throat and does his best imitation)
Zoidberg: "What! My mother was a saint!!! Get out!"

Heh big grin

Actually one of my favourite all time Zoidberg lines came up in one of the new episodes, Less then Hero. I'm not sure if saying this quote would give anything away because a number of non-American PEElers wont have seen it yet, so I'll just pop it into a spoiler for you     smile


That one line from him made me laugh so much. It was class!    laff

Remember how Zoidberg coughed up those pearls in 'Bendin' in the wind', and they sold them to hippies?

Fry: "Brothers and sisters, get your love beads!  Can't journey to the centre of your mind without love beads!"
Hippy lady: "Wow, look at the colours! This'll go great with my soul"
Zoidberg: "Glad you like them!  I've been making fine jewelery for years, apparently."

I've spent my whole life studying insects and other invertebrates, as well as sea creatures. I love tentacled, bug eyed monsters and "weird" (by boring human standards) creatures, so when futurama first began I was thrilled that a gooey crab/squid was finally a major character in a great comedy. It was ABOUT TIME! Useless factoid: my all-time favorite star wars alien when I was little was "squid head", a background character in return of the jedi who also has a tentacled face.

 As the zoology nerd I am, I always love learning new little facts about the biology of his species. They may call him a lobster most of the time, but he's definately a merging of crustacean and mollusc, as he shares slightly more in common with the latter (which includes clams, oysters, snails, slugs, nudibranchs, squid, cuttlefish and octopi)

Who combines all the advantages of both Crustaceans and Molluscs, with none of the disadvantages.

Yeah, cephalopods are molluscs of the squid/octopus sort.

Mollusc aspects: makes pearls, squirts ink, mouth surrounded by tentacles, presumably fertilizes pre-laid eggs (he fertilized the caviar.)

Crustacean aspects: exoskeleton, claws, hermit-crab tendancies (briefly lived in a large seashell) often walks like a crab.

Bender: "Look! Outdoor Theatre! Let's get tickets- ohh, let's do!"

Zoidberg: "No! It's the ceremony of Claw-Plakh, where my species fight to the death over matters of honour... also whether abbreviations count in scrabble... They don't!!"

Fry: "I didn't come here to see any activity involving two guys.  Where do you people do your erotic display?"

Zoidberg: "Same place as your species- the beach!"

That's a great episode "Why must  I be a Crustian in love." Maybe because it's mainly about Zoidberg, anf Fry. This was the first time we saw an episode based on Zoidberg and brought out his true character!  big grin

That episode was all about Zoidberg and it sucked. Just goes to show that too much Zoidberg can be a bad thing...that and the writers of that episode suck!

I think his eye colour changed early in season 4.
In 'Roswell that ends well' he has white eyes, then in the next episode, 'a tale of two santas' they are blue.

And hey, Why must I be a crustacean in love wasn't that bad!  I know it wasn't an all time great episode or anything, but there were some funny bits, and the plot was ok.  What does everyone else think?

Zoidy, it's because they have different people working on the animation and coloring!  :]  It happens.

And like I said on the favorite character thread, I *loved* the way Zoidberg was sucking food off the glass in "Roswell That Ends Well"... he looked like a sucker fish!!  lol.  It was so cute.

Here's my wacked out theory.  Supposedly, since they went back in time to 1947.  The O-Zone layer and the air, thereof, was different.  You know how when you take a nice hot shower and your eyes become red sometimes after one. (Occasionally, but not all the time)  Maybe since he travelled through there and then came back to the future, his eyes had a hard time readjusting.  Therefore, his eyes changed colors.  Although this goes different with humans, he's not human by any means.

The fact that none of the Planet Express crew like him is what makes him such a great character!
