In When a Man Loves a Woman (1994) (info at http://us.imdb.com/title/tt0111693/combined  ), Lauren Tom played a character named Amy. Interesting....

My GOD! David X. Cohen must have gone back in time and changed the past in order to leave us clues so we can save Futurama from the evil Fox empire!

But really, its probably just coincidence, nice eyes though.

That's not ironic, it's just coincidental. Although it does bring up other connections in "Futurama" - in the Season 2 episode "Raging Bender", the movie theater marquee advertises the film "When a Man Loves a Smizzmar", and later on in Season 5's "Kif Gets Knocked Up a Notch", we learn that "smizzmar" is the word Kif's species uses for "significant other", who, in Kif's case, is Amy. Maybe it was a long-thought-out reference.

Then there is the character of the couple's pregnant nanny and housekeeper, Amy, played by Lauren Tom. Amy is onscreen only briefly, but is written and acted with such a perfect feel for tone and dialogue that she seems immediately real. She knows all about not enabling. One night as the kids are screaming and Michael is going berserk, she roots herself in the kitchen, preparing her own dinner. She knows what is her problem and what is not her problem. She has a line of dialogue ("It worked" ) that, in context, is both unexpected and perfect.

[Elzar]My respect for Roger Ebert just knocked up a few notches. Bam! [/Elzar]
