Trivia

The army hospital scene refers to the classic American TV series M*A*S*H (1972). The PA announcer is voiced by the same actor from the original series, and Dr. Zoidberg argues with a robot surgeon named iHawk, a parody of "Hawkeye" Pierce, the series' main character. See more »

The One Where Fry And Bender Join The Army...
31 October 2014 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I love this episode. It's so funny. Fry is just so dumb and lovable, that you can't help loving him.

In this episode, Fry and Bender decide they want some bubble gum. So after choosing it, from the wide selection that the future has to offer, they go up to pay for it. They find out that if they're in the army, they get a discount and will save like 35 cents. So they go and enlist and come back and pay for the gum. With the discounted price. Then they get drafted. Bad idea. Leela knows that they won't last without her help, so she dresses up as a man and joins as well. For some reason, they wouldn't let her join when she was just a woman. Fry doesn't realize that it's Leela and hangs out with him slash her. And he begins to grow really attached.

Overall, I give this episode a 10 out of 10.
