I dig the MST3K references. The 3000 on the moon on the first episode was subtle. But the funniest was in "Raging Bender" (IIRC) when they're in the movie theatre, Bender starts cracking jokes and the camera pans to a silhouette of very Tom and Crow-like robots saying "We're trying to watch the movie, here!"

I thought it was one of the more "geek for the masses" jokes that most people who would regularly watch Futurama would get. From what I've heard from people who have listened to the commentaries, there are some very complex mathematical jokes that few without a degree in math or a related field would even notice, much less "get".

With apologies to bouv:

Alien: "Whoa... That hippie's starting to kick in... My hands are HUGE... and they can touch everything but themselves... whoooooaaaaa...."

Leela: I didn't know ancient astronauts were so fat.
Fry: He wasn't really an astronaut. He was just using space travel as a metaphor for beating his wife.

Morbo: "Belligerent and numerous."

And my favorite: "Kittens give Morbo gas."

It was Nixon who asked. And his (Nixon) response was even better. He said "Good man. Nixon's pro-war and pro-family.

Heh, yeah, there's only one thing I'm a stickler for and it's Futurama, but I'll try to refrain from being an ass any more. (Besides, most of you are doing much better. Maybe you're checking your sources.)

More great quotes:

"Everyone's a jerk. You, me, this jerk. That's my philosphy."

(I love that once cause I agree with it.)

Zoidberg: It just so happens I have degrees in Murderology AND Murderonomy!

Scruffy: I'm on break.

Nixon: I'll sell out children's organs to zoos, and I'll go into people's houses at night and wreck up the place!

Morbo: (His wife is adjusting his tie) It's fine, it's fine, I will destroy you.

Nixon: The loot! The loot! The loot is on fire!

Well, some of us are comfortable merely paraphrasing our quotes, knowing that the true Futurama cognoscenti will be able to fill in the blanks automatically.

I'm sorry you lack the confidence in your Futurama knowledge to be comfortable with less than perfect quotes.

I love the bumpers at the beginning with the show's sponsors:
Quote:
sung jingle-style
Call RoboRooter when you flush your towel, and we can also help with an impacted bowel. RoboRooter!
And I also can't believe I forgot Morbo!

Morbo: Morbo can't understand his teleprompter. He forgot how you say that letter that looks like a man with a hat.
Linda: It's a "T". It goes "Tuh."
Morbo: Hello, little man. I will destroy you!

Morbo: "In lighter news, the city of New New York is doomed. Blame rests with known human Professor Hubert Farnsworth and his tiny, inferior brain."

Linda: "The holiday season is time of celebration for most but it is also the time to remember the tragic suffering of the less fortunate."
Morbo: "Earthlings do not yet know the meaning of suffering."

Ahh I get to answer the Quantum measurement joke?

I don't know exactly as well, but I'll pretend I do.

Its based on the Heisenberg Uncertainty principle. As for an explanation of that you'll have to look elsewhere because I only knew enough to get the joke, being that by measuring the position of a partile, you change it because it is necessary to collide something (like a photon) to get any sort of info, which changes the position.


Favorite quotes? I have a particular favorite. It happens when Fry wants to go live with is girlfriend in the lost underwater city of Atlanta. Farnsworth says something like, "Fry, you fool, don't you realize that if you stay down here much longer, you'll never be able to return to the surface!" Fry then says,

"Realize it? I don't even understand it!"

The delivery was perfect. He made it sound as if not understanding it somehow made his reasons for staying greater!"

Favorite moments:

The part where the gaseous cloud in the Star Trek episode keeps on zapping "Welshy" out of anger.

Brannigan: Do you plead guilty, Fry? One beep for yes, two for no.
Fry: *Beep* *beep*
Brannigan: Double yes!

The Farnsworth Parabox is a great episode too.... My favorite was when Leela goes into the robot universe. Robot Fry goes up to her and says.

Robot fry: (Robot voice) Will....you...go...out...with...me?
Leela: um....access denied!
robot fry explodes.

"What smells blue?"

Pannuchi's pizza box in the first episode

"Do not tip the delivery boy"

There are countless quotes of Fry screwing up statements to show loyalty or to show how valubale to him. They usually go like, It may be worth a lot of money to you, but to me its worthless!

Where No Fan Has Gone Before

Why? Because Fry actually gets to zing Melllvar.

(after the trivia contest)
Melllvar : "You will now perform a script written by the ultimate Star Trek fan."
Fry : "You have a copy of my script?"
Melllvar : "No, MY script. I am the ultimate Star Trek fan."
Fry : "Oh, I'm sorry. I was confused because the scoreboard says something different."

My favorite episode? Hard to say. "Jurassic Bark" is pretty high up, even if I could never stand to watch it more than once. Probably "Leela's Homeworld," then.

For quotes...jeez, I thought I had more saved up. But I've got:

"When will man learn that all races are equally inferior to robots!"
— Bender

"Hmm, I have been looking for a way to serve
the community that incorporates my violence."
—Leela

"Aw, there there. If it makes you feel any better, his body was vaporized, so there's chance of him coming back as a zombie."
—Fry

Fry: Wouldn'ta solid gold fiddle weigh hundreds
of pounds and sound crummy? Robot Devil: Well it's mostly for show.

The Illustrated A Brief History of Time has a good explanation of it, I got a discount copy over at Hamiltonbook. Yes, basically on a sub-atomic scale you can know the velocity of a particle OR you can know where the particle is. I'm sleepy so i'd mess somethign up but there are a lot of google links out there.

Oh and BTW, my favorites, the "jacking on" phrases were hilarious, but I liked the 80's arcade game referrences.

I think Zoidberg gets a good amount of memorable lines, gotta love the crazy, incompetent Decapodian doctor

From Parasites Lost;

Hermes; He'll be as strong and flexible as Gumby and Hercules combined
Zoidberg; Gumbercules? i love that guy!

Zoidy; It's good cholesterol but it spreads like bad cholesterol

Prof. F; We're now in the heart, better known as the love muscle
Zoidy; where the food is digested

Zoidy; Quick, we can escape thru that nasal cavity into the capilaries
Hermes; strange, you usually don't know anything about human anatomy
Zoidy; i learned it from a decongestant commercial..."Soothing Action...action...action..."

Prof. F; the Pelvic Splanknic Ganglion
Zoidy; I heard of that, who said i havent?

and of course...
Zoidy; Yippy Ki-Yay, you'll never guess where i've been

Where the Buggalo Roam;
all Zoidy quotes;
do you have any more of that Dom Peringon bubble bath, there was only enough to fill the tub halfway
i took the liberty of fertilizing your caviar
(loudly, from the lake) I broke your television!


Where No Fan Has Gone Before;

Koening; when we woke up, we had these bodies
Fry; say it in Russian
K (bored and exasperated, monotone) ven..ve..voke..up..ve..had..zeese..wodies
F; (joyfully) EEEEEEEE!!! now say "Nuclear Wessels"
K; NO!
(it's Fry's joyful "EEEEEE" that makes this quote)

Fear of a Bot planet;
Mayor; Let the hunt begin!
Trumpeter; plays the startup chime from a Mac Quadra

actually there were a lot of Mac references in that ep;
the trumpeter plays a Mac startup chime
the judge appeared to be a Mac 128 or 512
the Robot Elders eye and mouth coloration was the same color scheme as the multicolor tray-load imacs (Blueberry, Lime, Grape, Tangerine, and Strawberry.

i think one of the elders was also supposed to be Key Lime (the KL iBook's case coloration, a radioactive green was almost impossible to reproduce in print or on TV, it also glowed when exposed to a black light, i've done it myself, the KL plastics glow when exposed to UV light)

Hermes: I'll have a horse Coke.
Vendor: Horse Pepsi okay?
Hermes: Nay!

Calculon: So, you can guarantee me an Oscar?
Bender: I can guarantee you anything you want.

Number 1.0: Bureacrat Conrad, you are technically correct. The best kind of correct!

Judge Whitey: My caddy's chauffer tells me that a bank is a place where poor people put money that isn't properly invested. Therefore, robbing a bank is tantamount to the most heinous of crimes: stealing money!

Judge Whitey: That reminds me of a joke I heard about upper-middle-class people.

Farnsworth: I'll have a croque monsieur, the paella, two mutton pills and a stein of mead.

Nibbler: We live long and are celebrated poopers!

Fry: Attention, meat-creatures. It is time for you to ingest sustinence from my compartment.

QBert: Since you were declared dead last year, I inherrit your building and assets.
Farnsworth: You take one nap in a ditch at the park and they declare you this and that!

Ms. Waterfall: No, great-grandpa! Another victim of the man-o-centric male-ocrocy!

Fry: Ow! My sperm!

Bender: Brought to you by Futurama. The show that does not advocate the coooool crime of robbery.

Lrrr: Bring me McNeal. She is a plucky young human female trying to make it in a human male's world.
Zapp Branigan: Maybe that's just her excuse for being incompetent.
Lrrr: SILENCE!

Fry: Voter apathy party? That sounds perfect. Sign me up!
Volunteer: Not with that attitude.
Fry: OK, then, forget it.
Volunteer: Welcome aboard, brother!
Fry! All right!
Volunteer: You're out.

Amy: Is it true that hemp can be used to make rope and shampoo?
Stoner: Dave's not here, man.

Hermes: Mail call! Fry, here's Sadie's Bra Parade, Leela, Bulk Underpants Outlet.
Leela: You buy ten pounds of underpants and suddenly you're on their list forever.

Terri: Welcome to the woooooooorld of tomooooorrow!

Boss: So I told Leela I must decline her request for a date. After all, that is how I met my horrible wife!
Leela: But you never wore your ring. I didn't know you had a wife.
Boss: And my wife doesn't know I have a job!

Yangtze Fry: Your name is Yangtze. Just like me, and my father, and his father. All the way back to Minuteman Yangtze Fry who blasted commies in the American Revolution.

My favorite episode is “Why Must I Be A Crustacean In Love”. The national anthem part was hilarious.

My favorite line is from a different episode though.
Professor Farnsworth: "He may have ocean madness, but that's no excuse for ocean rudeness!!!"

Fry: Fine, I've got a toast: To Captain Bender! He's the best! ...at being a big jerk who's stupid, and his big ugly face is as dumb as a butt!

Bender: From now on, I'm going to bend what I want, when I want, who I want!

Zapp has got to be one of the best characters:

If we can hit that bull's-eye, the rest of the dominoes will fall like a house of cards...Checkmate.

Zapp: Kif, I'm feeling the "Captains' Itch"
Kiff: (In a tired voice) 'I'll get the powder sir!'

I am the man with no name! (pause) Zapp Brannigan, at your service.

Now remember Kif: the quickest way to a girls bed is through her parents. Have sex with them, and you’re in!

Men, you're lucky men. Soon you will all be fighting for your planet. Many of you will be dying for your planet. A few of you will be forced through a fine mesh screen for your planet. They will be the luckiest of all.

The following is probably not word-for-word accurate as I have yet to find a Futurama script resource, but . . .

-----------

LEELA: Fry, since you came to the future, you've become a fat sack of crap.

FRY (indignantly): Sack?

............

BENDER: Look! I'm steering with my butt!

FRY (with great enthusiasm): Now that's the best thing I ever saw!

Glad I found this page!

Bender (singing and playing banjo):
"We got a right to pick a little fight with rustlers,
Somebody wants to pick a fight with us,
He better bite my ass!
YeeHaw!"

And that in turn reminds me of...
Bender: "Leela, save me! . . . And yourself I guess . . . and my banjo . . . and Fry."

Favorite Episode: If I had to pick just one, I'd say "Luck of the Fryrish." But close runners-up would be "Farnsworth Parabox", "Leela's Homeworld", "Put Your HEad on My Shoulder" and "The Day the Earth Stood Stupid."

Least favorite Episode, hands-down, is "A Pharaoh to Remember." Basically just Bender being a jerk for half-an-hour. Yes, he's usually a jerk for whole episodes at a time, but there's generally other stuff for us to laugh at.

Most of my favorite quotes are already mentioned, but I'll submit:

Fry, from "A Flight To Remember": "Don't worry, Leela, my fake relationship with you is much more meaningful to me than my fake relationship with Amy."

I love Professor Farnsworth's utter disregard for the safety of the crew:

"Good news, everyone. Tomorrow you'll be making a delivery to Ebola 9, the
virus planet." -Professor
"Why can't we go today?"
"Because tonight's a special night, and I want all of you to be alive."


Another quote that's all in the delivery. The way he says "virus planet" slays me.

85 posts and I still have a couple more. These will be paraphrases I am not word perfect on Futurama.

At Elzar's restaurant

Hermes: There's jerk ham, jerk chicken, jerk pork, jerk beef. Is there any kind of meat this man can't jerk?

===

Fry and Bender are at a robot strip joint.

Bender: Man, she is built!

Fry: Yeah, look at that exhaust pipe.

Bender: You're sick

Bender's last line was censored out when shown on Channel 4.

===

About a million sight gags. I can't remember the circumstance for this one (I know someone will)

Someone: But where can we find a doomsday device?

Prof Farnsworth instantly reveals his unreasonably large selection of doomsday devices.

His actual line is "Pervert." So it makes perfect sense that they deleted it.

Bender: "Interesting! No, wait. The other thing. Tedious."

"Why Must I be a Crustacean in Love?" has a couple of brilliant sight gags.

My favorite is "Look, my old scuttling ground!". And the camera pulls back to reveal a car that has six legs and moves like a crab.

And, of course, in the gym, a panning shot moves past a woman pumping several hundred pounds on the kegelcizer.

Anything the robot devil says is pure gold (in shape of a violin).

"Hello Bender! We've prepared several agonizing and ironic punishments for you!"

"You can't just have the characters say how they feel! That makes me feel angry!!!"

From the one where they become superheroes...

The villan appears on the monitor when Leela, Fry, Bender, and Prof are all in there. Farnsworth is upset, and leela says..

"Isn't it time for your nap?"

Farnsworth, "YES, DAMNIT!!"
he falls asleep instantly and ignores the superheroe threat and his chair reclines and takes him away.

The best one is when there is shouting between Hermes, and Farnsworth between them and their children. Zoidberg comes in and says, "Is this angry shouting, or busted hearing aid shouting?"

Hermes: "I'm afraid its both"

Farnsworth, "WHAT!?!?!?!"

Farnsworth has the best delievery of any character in the series.

At the Clawplaq (sp??) match:

"And now let us rise for our national anthem"
Danger theme from Star trek Commences
Fry: "Oh Crap."

Farnsworth: Ooooh that makes me so mad! If anyone needs me, I'll be in the Angry Dome!!!

(when the ship flies out, you see the prof pacing around in a domed area grumbling angrily)



Pet Store Guy: How about this electric snail?
Fry: That's a stupid animal. You're stupid! I said I want the best animal!



Bender: Uh oh, is she behind me?
Accountant: No, I'm in front of you.
Bender: Eeee!



(everyone gets captured except Zoidberg)
Zoidberg: What, do I smell or something? *sniff sniff* ...Ohhh.
(at the witch's lair)
Leela: Why have you brought us here?!
Zoidberg: And why did I have to take a cab?!

One of my favorite quotes, and I chuckle every time I think of it.

Also, as previously mentioned :

Prof. : "While you were gone, the Globetrotters held a press conference to announce that I was a jive sucka."

"I'm just glad my fat ugly momma isn't alive to see this day."
"We can talk about your promiscuous mother later, Hermes, we've got work to do!"

My favorite show of all time. I just finsihed watching the last DVD set recently.

From Spanish Fry

Lrr: Hmm. This jerk chicken is good. I' think I'll have Fry's lower horn jerked.
Bender (off-screen): It's used to it! Woo-hoo!

Fry and Bender are at a robot strip joint.
My favorite part is when they buy the lap dance for Fry from the huge ovoid robot with the stole. She tips over on him and then vibrates wildly, crushing poor Fry underneath.

Yeah, that one's pretty weak, but it did have one classic line:
Fry: You know the worst part about being a slave? You have to work all day, and they won't pay you or let you go.
Leela: That's the only thing about being a slave!
Fry: Oh, and you know what else is bad? The hours.
