One of the funniest episodes
11 June 2008 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

This is one of the funniest episodes of Futurama out there in the telly. Roberto is one of the funniest and diverse literary characters ever invented, and he is endlessly quotable. "Stand back I gotta practice mah stabbin'", and "IT WAS NOT Nothing!!!" impress the hell ou of girls. In fact, this whole episode is a quote miners gold mine. I find myself shouting "Change places!!" and running at people that are eating at every opportunity. There is also a nice reference to One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest. Watch this episode if you don't want to die unfulfilled. I have to write two more lines. Fry's psychological breakdown and descent into madness is hilarious, as is the BEEP he makes after Leela kisses him.
