Topics of Discussion[edit]

  • The Hebrew writing is "Today I am a robot".
  • Tress' first commentary recording, however the commentaries are recorded out of order, so she appears on multiple commentaries before this one.
  • How they combine 3D and 2D.
  • David's ability to recall Futurama trivia.
  • "That Guy"'s name is Steve Castle.
    • 80's style design, suits came from Wall Street.
  • Whether Hattie's legs are wrinkled or she's wearing support hose, apparently it's the latter.
    • At the last recording session, David received a message on his mobile phone's voice mail from an old woman looking to buy some support hose.
  • Billy West arrived late, or possibly early for the next recording.
  • Crowd animation and the "people hose".
  • The ad is based on the first Apple ad, in 1984. With the dialogue being a parody of the original audio.
  • Mom's design changes.
  • Chair gas would have been better than chair fuel.
  • Mom's ship has 3 times the number of windows the Nimbus does, about 3300-3500. The ship wasn't used again.
  • OSX is doing better than MSW on the stock exchange, Macintosh Operating System 10 vs. Microsoft Windows. GORN beating Q, is a reference to Star Trek.
  • Matt calls David during the commentary
  • More high-tech things than usual due to the high quantity of 80s references.
  • The Boneitis was originally more extreme.
