Last night I asked my husband if he knew where the newspaper comics were and he replied "Knows not does he!" That's one of his favorite exclamations from the exchange between the Nibblonians.

For about a month now I have been driving myself crazy waiting to hear from even one of the obscene number of grad programs I applied to for the fall, and a modified version of Fry's lament from "The Problem With Popplers" has been coming to mind quite frequently: "I wish they'd just reject me already and get it over with--it's the waiting I can't stand."

Whenever my school has an assembly and somebody next to me is quiet, I always can't help but yell "Shut up ____!".

So do I, but mostly in situations I know will result in a follow-up question to which I can reply, "Oh my, no."

I sometimes try to work in Professor Farnsworth's exchange to Glurmo about the Grunkalunkas into conversation.

"What are those things?"
[Person answers]
"Tell them that I hate them!"

Sadly it's kind of hard to find a context to use it.

I love the Professor!! I try to use his responses as often as possible even if people have know idea what I'm talking about :)

Philip J. Fry: Fetal stem cells? Aren't those controversial?
Prof. Hubert J. Farnsworth: In your time, yes. But nowadays... shut up!

Leela "They're the gentle giants of the sea"
Proffesor "I'm well aware of that!"

leela- do you know what might be a hoot?
Farnsworth- No, why would i know that.

Huph. You sound just like my tennis instructor.

I use the line which preceeds that a fair bit. Usually when somebody's removing a coat or other article of clothing. Normally, I get a puzzled look. Occasionally, I get that response.

Which is why I still say it.

Had "The Thief of Baghead" on in the background just now and was reminded of how delightful I find this Zoidberg quote:



I think I'm going to start using that in classroom settings when I want to draw people's attention to a relevant passage in a textbook. That won't quickly become insufferable, right? :p

I've been using the Robot Devil's line about "stupid fingers" a lot, ever since I finally got myself a smartphone a few years ago.  It's also applicable whenever I'm using other touch screens, or anything with small buttons.

Zapp's rant about the Neutrals comes up fairly often when I'm playing Dungeons & Dragons.

There are probably some other quotes that I could list, but what do I look like, a guy who's not lazy?

Same! It's such a normal part of my everyday speech that I forget it's from Futurama.

And I'm also guilty of using the "stupid fingers" line. I can't force that into quite as many situations though, so I have to get creative with my setup. This is all in theory, of course, because what do I look like, a guy who's not lazy?

I often use Amy's interjections, such as "shmeesh", "spluh", "gweesh"... And, like her, attach "shm-" in words like "shmundred" or "shmenurism". As for actual quotes, my favourites would be these:

-It's an emergency sir!
-Come back when it's a catastrophy.

-It hurts when I breathe.
-Then what do you think you should stop doing?

-Please understand - you're a man, I'm a woman. We're just too different!


By the way, does anyone remember what episode this line is from:
"Nails growing, blood flowing - the whole shmagoigal!"
It was said by Dr. Zoidberg. I'm not certain on whether these are the exact words, but it sounded something like that.

According to morbotron.com it's from "Near-Death Wish."  I'll have to take morbotron's word on that, since I've never seen that episode.

Welcome to PEEL, Skyrmion!  Enjoy your stay.

A superviser was for whatever reason listing appropriate PPE to a co-worker a couple of days ago. Lab gloves, she said. Lab goggles, she said. Lab thong, I said, on my way past.

I had to stop and explain.

I used it today and was consequently reminded that I in fact quite frequently use Leela's "Big 'O,' little 'k'" line from "Less Than Hero." I don't always verbalize it, but I often will think it to myself after saying "Ok" to someone.

Just had reason to say, in a work meeting, “I think it’s a little pedantic, but he’s technically correct.” I managed to avoid following that up (out loud, anyway) with “the best kind of correct,” but I’m still inordinately proud of myself for sneaking that stealth Futurama reference into an otherwise soul-crushing meeting.

I think that you really need to start saying more of these things out loud.

Ha, perhaps. To complete the trifecta, I'll note that today was my last day at my current job, which required a lot of goodbying, and prompted me to almost (but not actually) quote Cylon (of "-& Garfunkel" fame):

I can understand not wanting to say that one out loud.  People who didn't get the reference might have thought that you were actually getting emotional.  Gross.

I’ve been incorporating a lot of beans into my diet of late, in tacos and rice dishes and chilis and such, both because I recognize the value of a fiber-rich diet and to allow for more frequent use of one of my favorite Futurama quotes of all time, “They’re the beaniest!”

I was draining a can of red beans the other day and said this line with a degree of pride, as if I were offering encouragement to the little fellas—“Who’s the beaniest? You’s the beaniest!”—before sliding them down my gullet. The pandemic-induced isolation may finally be doing me in...

cB, I cannot properly express how much joy that knowledge gives me. :laff:

Also: Just realized today that I will often say to my dog, when he’s being annoying, that if he doesn’t simmer down I will shove my foot so far up his cloaca... which I’m just now realizing is a slight bastardization (the original quote is “put my boot,” not “shove my foot”) of something Leela says to Zoidberg in Bender’s Game. BG is easily my least favorite of the movies, but apparently that line stuck with me for some reason.

I say "nine, ten, a big fat hen" whenever I'm counting to ten, or whenever I hear someone else counting to ten.  I doubt that most people realize that I'm quoting Bender when I do, though.

I say "barbecue's over" whenever an event ends abruptly.

I still use the Zapp Brannigan pronunciations for things, because they're more fun. And only in the company of those who get the reference. Most specifically, I frequently refer to guacamole as "gwack-a-mole." As in, "I have no idea what to do with these huge-ass avocados besides make toast or gwack-a-mole." or "these sweet potato chips would go great with gwack-a-mole!" Sadly, I've had only one or two opportunities to say "sham-pagin."

Sham-pag-nee is always appropriate, too. :)

And after being an idiot last year, attempting to carry two armloads' worth of broken-down cardboard boxes and tripping over my feet and ending up in a pile on the floor, if you were close enough you would have heard me mutter "You win again. gravity".
