That's a Dr. Who reference, where the doctor explains that the inside of the TARDIS is so much larger then the outside of the TARDIS (which is the size of a British police call box) because it is 4 dimensional.

Connection to Futurama?

It's driving me NUTS!  The bridge of the ship keeps changing, one scene it's hudge, one it's smaller then my closet, the next it's hudge and Leela's seat is near the front, then it's at the rear, then it's in the middle of the room.

Heh, you and Payndz would connect well.

Andy (Payndz here at PEEL) keep a log on the ship-changes during the show, and have even made blueprints to the ship based on those observations.

Check out his site ANSTATMAW (The Planet Express Service Station section)

I can be a tech nut, but this was just sooooo freekin obvious in a couple of episodes.  Especially I guess when you are seeing it almost every night and then jump from Where No Fan Has Gone Before to Space Pilot 3000.

Well it is an animated sitcom after all. You can't expect perfect animation every time.

Ah yes, Geoshitties and their stringent bandwidth-policy. It should be up in an hour again. Highly recommendable site, also for Amy-fanatics.

But, yeah, the ship does change alot. Lots of rooms are seen only one time, and others keep changing layout.

David Cohen have said that at a very early point in the creation did they decide not to have a fixed layout of the ship. It would simply be too difficult, and internet fanatics would catch a mistake sooner or later, so why bother.   :D

David Cohen in "Love's Labour's Lost In Space" noted that the ships layout was highly inconsistent (I think), and mentioned that there was "a guy on the internet who keeps track of the blueprints who constantly gets mad at us"  ;).
Teral's probably got the exact quote.

It was in "The Series Has Landed", and the exact quote (  ;)) was:

There's a guy who has a website that is blueprints of the ship, and he gets mad at us all the time at how it fluctuates!"
"We drive him nuts!"

It's probably on Andy's site somewhere.

TARDIS stands for Time And Relative Dimensions In Space, and is composed of many more dimensions (5th, 6th, 7th etc) - so you're incorrect to say it is in "4 Dimensions". It is actually possible for a TARDIS to be larger outside than it is inside, assuming that the chameleon circuit diguises itself as a big enough object (one with a larger volume than the interior of the TARDIS).

As it happens, the Doctor's TARDIS (which he stole) has a malfunctioned chameleon circuit, meaning that it's always a police call box. Other Time Lord's TARDISes adapt to their surroundings (The Master's TARDIS for example, took the form of a beach hut when he materialised on the coast).

It's worth bearing in mind that the TARDIS interior always changed after the Doctor regenerated, so the interior size varied from Doctor to Doctor.

But I'm not a die hard fan of Doctor Who. No sir.   :)
