Topics of Discussion[edit]

  • Dr. Zoidberg seems so upbeat which is unusual as he is normally depressed.
  • There was a scene cut where the The Professor wore a Beatles wig.
  • Charleston Chew is actually a real product.
  • Originally Dr. Zoidberg ate the crew's clothes whilst they were in the hot tub.
  • Phil Hendrie plays his only non-Waterfall part in this episode as the man writing Earth Sucks.
  • The Klingon Embassy was going to be the Barbie Embassy but the crew thought a pink Barbie Embassy wasn't a good joke.
  • Eric and James hadn't seen the completed episode until this moment.
  • The court scene is similar to Phil Hendrie show where he plays a character everyone hates whilst the audience boos him.
  • Eric wrote another episode involving the DOOP Army: War is the H-Word.
  • Matt came up with the idea of the Decapodian ships taking a while to get to Earth.
  • The Decapodians were meant to destroy the buildings but it was changed after 9/11.
