Topics of Discussion

  • The commentary was recorded before the episode aired on television, due to the actor who played Dwight being in China for ten months. They had to wait for his return to re-record some lines.
  • It is possible to have a tiny black hole.
  • Dan, the writer, was a paperboy; this episode is a tribute to his father who helped him back then. Additionally he used to brew beer at home and the Futurama crew brew beer in the offices. The label of Bendërbrāu was designed for the office's beer.
    • They later question the legality of brewing in the office and decide it's okay because they didn't sell it.
  • Voice machines could eliminate the need for all but one voice actor.
  • Sound effect creation discussed.
  • A game was played where the viewer has to guess which of the actors (each doing a Zoidberg voice) was actually Billy West.
  • Maurice demonstrated the differences between the voices of Morbo, Lrrr and H.G. Blob.
  • The actors all love Dawnn's voice.
  • Dan apparently insisted on the barking dog during the fight scene.
