Trivia

While attempting to fix his straightedge, Hermes swears under his breath, saying "Haile H. Selassie!" It is a Rastafarian equivalent of turning Jesus Christ's name into a swear by adding the middle initial "H." Among the Rastafari movement, Selassie, the late Emperor of Ethiopia (1930-74), is revered as the returned messiah of the Bible, God incarnate. This is the second time Hermes has made this kind of parallel religious swear. In a previous episode, he says "Jah dammit," Jah being the name Rastafarians use for God/Selassie. See more »

Goofs

At the end of the episode, Bender lifts up his sleeves to re-bend the professor. Aside from the obvious joke that Bender, for the first time, suddenly has sleeves, his sleeves suddenly go back to their full length without any transition after he bends Farnsworth back. See more »

Quotes

Turanga Leela: [Picks up L-shaped piece of metal] This is a normal L-unit. Without it, space travel is but the fevered dream of a madman.
Philip J. Fry: Yep.
Bender: Of course.
Amy Wong: Doy!
Hermes Conrad: It's an important unit.
Turanga Leela: And this, my friends, is the L-unit just removed from the ship.
[Unveils a straightened piece of metal; all gasp]
Philip J. Fry: That doesn't look like an L at all. Unless you count lower-case.
Bender: You know we don't!

They don't make 'em like this anymore

This is my favorite episode of Futurama. The first act has some of the best humor I've ever seen on T.V. ("Hey! It's that guy that you are!") Maybe the show has too much going on with all the different plot lines, and who knows, the episode may have benefited from a little trim here and there; but the sheer quotability of this one makes it so I can watch over and over again. This to me was the height of the show's quality, straight up goofy humor throughout. The new shows are good, (as of this writing, episode 100 from the sixth season aired about two months ago.) but much of the luster has been lost in this viewer's opinion. Anyway, nearly perfect piece of entertainment, if not for story, just for the smart and goofy humor throughout.
