  1. ^ "'Bea Arthur. I would point out as one where originally before she came in I thought "well it's kind of a weird choice, and we'll score points for unexpected casting." She played the fem-bot who was controlling the fem-puter Amazon home world, but she was so funny and gave it such a serious, straight reading to this jibberish about "have you any idea what it's like to be a fem-bot on a man-bot man-puter's world?" She gave this little speech which was nothing but jibberish in the most heartfelt reading. I thought she gave one of the great Futurama guest performances.'"Cohen, David X.
