I really like Godfellas, where Bender is lost in space and meets God. Very funny.

Fry: "Is there anything religion can do to help me find my friend?"
Pastor: "Well, we could join together in prayer."
Fry: "Uh huh, but is there anything useful we can do?"
Pastor: "No."

Fry: "Bonder? Is it really you?"
Gypsy: "Yes, I am fine. Give the gypsy 10 dollars."
Fry: "Wait a minute...Bender's name isn't Bonder, it's Bender! You're a fraud!"
Gypsy: "Look, you want false hope or not?"
Fry: "Only if you don't have any real hope."

Bender: "Hello? Is anyone still alive? How about in the porno theater? Don't be embarrassed!"

Bender: "So, do you know what I'm gonna do before I do it?"
God: "Yes."
Bender: "What if I do something different?"
God: "Then I don't know that."

I love bender, but I would go on forever listing all my favourite bender moments.

I just watched the tax refund episode last night. The scary thing is I know people like Fry after he's had 70 cups of coffee.

"I couldn't sleep last night, no it wasen't the coffee I had insomnia time to sleep now zzzzz naps over need more coffee"

Also the cheesy ding noise when Fry drinks a cup makes me laugh everytime.

"And the milky way galaxy is sold to the being of unspeakable evil!"
"Bwahahahahahahahahaha. Will a money order be okay?"

"yes"

"Bwahahahahahahahahaha!"

The episode where everyone is invited to Amy's parent's house on Mars, a storm kicks up, and away fly the cow-beetle things they ranch.

Long story short, the natives traded all their land for a "useless crystal" - which in turn turns out to be a ginormous diamond. They give up trying to win back their land and head out with the diamond

It's one of those "What? How much is it worth? Ok, yeah, it was a fair trade" moments. LOL

The end of the episode in which Leela is stung by a giant space bee. She's been in a coma for two weeks, and Fry has never left her side, begging her to "wake up" as she has a series of hallucinatory dreams. When she finally wakes up, she hugs him. Fade to black.

Leela: You could really use a shower.
Fry: You, too.

I loved the fact that Bender was Latino, and the fact that everyone references Bender's Latino Charm.

That was a brilliant show. I never get tired of it.

Oh, and I love the Robot Hell song, too! Now I'm singing it in my head!

The dog episode is my favorite, and I've only seen it once. If I watch it a second time I might hug my dogs, never let go, and sob for hours. I was so affected by that show that I had trouble describing it to my wife, who was crying by the time I managed to finally explain why I was upset. She still hasn't seen the episode, and claims she never will.

As for funny moments, I still love their trip to the moon. Bender's temper tantrums, his tendency to sing folk songs when exposed to a magnet, the Crushinator . . . they are all great moments.

I also like some of the geeky inside jokes the writers throw in every once in a while. For example in one episode (the Slurm factory one, according to Wikipedia), Bender's head is x-rayed and we see a chip labled "6502." The MOS 6502 was an early microprocessor that was used in the Apple II, among other things.

@WildaBeast: Some of the jokes are purely ridiculous. When Fry and Amy date, they sneak into a closet and on the shelf there are various books including ones labelled P and NP. P = NP is a mathematical proof that has stumped mathematicians for years. It is assumed that P = NP but no-one has yet managed to prove it. This suggests that in the future P=/= NP.

I think it is Brannigan's ship that has the number 1729 on the side. 1729 = Taxicab(2), which is the lowest number than can be made as trhe sum of a pair of cubes in two different ways. (10 & 9 or 12 & 1)

In the first episode Fry is frozen at exactly midnight, 1 January, 2000 for 1000 years. Yet he wakes up early evening 31 December 2999. This is because of a glitch (for want of a better word) between the calender and atomic time and it means that Fry wakes up seven hours earlier than he was due to, ie. 5pm, which roughly fits in with the episode.

Futurama writers are all geeks.

Favourite moment? Fry and his seven leaf clover, Lella's hallucinations in The Sting, the jokes from almost any episode. The fans. Futurama fans are great people by definition, you all have good taste. [Smile]

This is driving me mad. Everytime someone mentions an episode I want to watch it imediately, and you are describing some I haven't even seen. I have never had the opportunity to cry over the dog.

I also tear up watching Seymore sitting on the curb in front of Panucci's. Another that always gets to me is the montage of Leela's parents watching over her from behind the walls as she grows up.

I think its really says something when a show that is usually so silly and hilarious can turn around and make me cry like a baby. That's what makes those my two favorite Futurama moments and also the reason I try to avoid watching them.

Leela whacking "devil bot" with the golden violin. And also from that episode the last few lines -

"do you think you could be a little less evil?"
"depends, you think you can survive a hundred foot drop?"

Oh, and also, where they visit the female planet and everytime the guys get shown some of the activities on the planet they laugh. Like the womens basketball where they "cant dunk".

Funny stuff.

Which episode was the very last one?
The one where Fry gets the Robot Devil's hands, I believe.

And surprisingly related, my favorite episodes involve the Robot Devil. Also that one where Leela finds her parents.

Favourite moments - it's the little things. I can't choose, I have been trying to for 10 minutes, and looking up episode details on the internet to check...I like them all. I can't choose. (I want the complete box set, but with Christmas etc. do not have the money).

Anything with Zoidberg.

Me four. I especially like when Dr. Z gets a new shell. He uses a hologrpahic device to select a new shell until Hermes says: Dr. Zoidberg you know darn well our insurance covers just one shell.

He reveals a genetic shell with a giant barcode., Dr. Z groans.


Anyway. The Star Trek episode is my favorite. I have em all. Love them all.

One of the funniest pieces about that ep is that when it originally aired on Fox on the East coast, it was interrupted by news of the 2000 election, and cut just after Bender asked if he blows up after saying "ass".

Lots of favorites already mentioned, so I'll add two more:

(Upon finding Robot Hell)
Leela: "Who would have thought Hell would really exist... and that it would be in New Jersey?"
Fry: "Actually..."


(When Fry and Bender are looking for an apartment)
Fry: "This place is great! What's the catch?"
Realtor: "Technically, we're in New Jersey."
(Cut back to Planet Express)
Fry: "We looked at apartments all day, and not one was even remotely liveable!"


(Why, yes, I am from New Jersey. How could you tell?)

Being from L.A., I loved the show's total trashing of it in Season 3:

Fry: So you're saying these aren't the decaying ruins of New York in the year 4000?
Professor Hubert Farnsworth: You wish. You're in Los Angeles.
Fry: But there was this gang of ten-year-olds with guns.
Leela: Exactly. You're in L.A.
Fry: But everyone is driving around in cars shooting at each other.
Bender: That's L.A. for you.
Fry: But the air is green and there's no sign of civilization whatsoever.
Bender: He just won't stop with the social commentary.
Fry: And the people are all phonies. No one reads. Everything has cilantro on it...

Another favorite moment, in one of the "Tales of Interest" shows: Leela becomes more spontaneous, murders the Professor for his money, then murders the other cast members, one by one, usually turning off the light for the actual deed.

When ONLY she and Fry are left alive, Fry finally figures out that she must be the murderer. She says, "Well, I guess I have to do something REALLY sponaneous now!" She approaches him--cut to black--then she and Fry are in bed together, naked under the sheets. She asks coyly, "Well, what do you think of the new spontaneous me?"

Fry says with awed appreciation, "I like it."

Leela: "Good. Let me just get the lights...." She has an evil expression, the light clicks off....

And Fry SCREAMS!

Long pause.

Then Fry says, "I REALLY like it!"

Oh, a PS--I ran into Billy West, the voice of Fry, at DragonCon in Atlanta and found out he liked audio drama, so I gave him a few of the Atlanta Radio Theatre Company CD's. West said, "Okay, I gotta do something for you. What's your favorite character on 'Futurama'?"

And I said, "The professor." (Because I am one)

So West announces, "Folks, this is a special performance for Brad, who gave me presents."

And in Professor Farnsworth's voice, he began to call hauntingly, "Pazuzu....Pa-ZOOO-zu...."

And darn it, I laughed so hard I didn't think to get his autograph!

I loved the scene is the "lost city of Atlanta" where the ship is sinking to the bottom of the ocean, and the pressure of the water on the hull goes to (IIRC) 400 atmospheres:

Leela: "Exactly how many atmospheres can the ship take?"

Professor: "Well, given that it is a spaceship, anywhere between zero and one". [Window cracks and water pours in].
