"Good news, everyone" is the Professor's catchphrase, and is one of the most prominent catchphrases on Futurama, only contested by "Bite my shiny metal ass".

The Professor often uses it to introduce a delivery for his crew to go on, but also for actual news. The phrase are used often to highlight the fact that it is most often not actually good news. Cubert also has said it on two occasions.

In "Law and Oracle", when Philip J. Fry has quit his job as delivery boy at Planet Express, Amy Wong wonders why Farnsworth did not begin the meeting with his usual catchphrase, to which he explains that he only used it to comfort Fry.


During its usage, the Professor has used different variants of his catchphrase, usually to highlight some actual change. This list shows all variations and their appearances:
