The "Bender Tourist" image reminds me a bit of "Raol Duke". Not 100%, but there is a similarity...

NOT SURE IF THIS IS A GENERIC VOICEMAIL MESSAGE

NOT SURE IF EVERYONE IS WISHING ME HAPPY BIRTHDAY BECAUSE THEY REMEMBERED

*edit*

Looks like the episode is called 'Zapp Dingbat', not 'Dingba'... Anyway, we got this from it:

Carcaron?  Hmm, I wonder if this guy is part of the DOOP or an enemy?  He looks like a bad guy.  Otherwise he outranks Zapp, I think.  We never know what rank Zapp is going to be next.  :laff:

I remember a font on a computer my father owned, about 20 years ago... It was called Zapf Dingbats.

edit - there we go: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zapf_Dingbats

Yeah, I'm almost positive that's what the pun in the title is from.  It would be neat if somehow a font plays a part in the plot, but I doubt it.

I think they started with "CAPTAIN Zapp Branigan" as a spoof on "CAPTAIN Kirk", but then found out that one of the most famous Doop officers would certainly have higher rank, therefore the gatheranyridicukousnumber-star-General.

Also, I think the Futurama universe sometimes uses "Captain" the same way as commander: A military rank as well as generic description for a person's job/function.

I rather hope it will not have a IAGDL like use of Zapp Branigan.
ImhO, that character was made for big scenes, to mess it up big time, and to get on as many people's nerves as possible.
The small "two person theater play" in IAGDL was not really his thing. A potential too strong focus on Zapp/Munda would result in the same weakness.

Edit:  I wonder if this scene takes place before or after Zapp and Munda get together.  Either way, I think this episode is going to be hilarious, and piss a lot of people off.  :laff:

My guess is that Leela has to seduce Zapp to prove to her mum that he isn't a good person that would be faithful to her and that she won't actually sleep with him this time and her and Fry will remain intact.

« #657 : 05-26-2012 22:51 »

Yeah, that's what I was thinking too, cyber.  I highly doubt that she actually wants to sleep with Zapp again, especially after how unenthusiastic she was in IAGDL at the end.  Although, I bet there's a little part in Leela's mind that is competitive with her mom.

Utter speculation, but she could have been about to beat him senseless for bursting in on her... then they look up to see Fry standing at the door with a bunch of flowers. Ooh, awkward.

Anyone else see the 'Yikes!' that MG wrote on the rough? :laff:

Actually, we saw that lingerie in "Parasites Lost". Now it was just slightly recolored. Lazy animators... And sexy Leela. Yep! :)

I guess Fry is gonna have to do something slap-worthy to Leela first, although that shouldn't be too hard for him.

A bit odd that Leela is in lingerie and Zapp is in uniform, it would be more typical if it was the other way around. Looks like a scene of a wife greeting her husband after a late night's work. And almost looks like Leela is reaching for that thing she wears on her wrist like it's a remote control and is about to change the channel on a big TV screen that's not showing the expected program.

It also seems to be in a place we've not seen before. It's not Leela's apartment, her parent's house, and unlikely on the Nimbus. Hmmm...

Regarding TV set: it's potential location seems a bit off. I'd prefer it to be located in front of the sofa.

She's actually trying to change her outfit back to street Leela, because all of her outfits are actually holograms controlled by her wrist thingy.

Maybe Zapp has a penthouse suite on Earth.  :flirt:

Don't know.. it might be (gasp!) their place and Leela's reaching for the "Bad Dream - Wake Up" button.  :laff:

I think a Zapp solo place would be decorated in a more neon erotic motif.

Ha!  I can see it now.  Leela is having a sexytime dream about Fry.  She looks away and when she looks back it's actually Zapp.  The horror!

I think they are just watching the Doomsday Storm. And there will be Fry and Leela prom in "A Farewell to Arms". Judging by Fry and Leela's Prom Photo it seems more like "ON" (in the F/L relationship) to me. At least temporarily...

P.S.
Yeah, I am a delivery boy now!

Leela has one eye. This physical disability may cause her to instinctively read from right to left rather than left to right.

Or, she might have been reading from the bottom of the page.

Or, I'm just wasting time trying to justify my insignificant speculation that's highly likely to be completely wrong.

I can't imagine why her having one eye has anything to do with reading right to left. Being Jewish could do it though.
