[Gopher] Where are these "Official section titles" from? I didn't realise there WERE official titles

Buddy13 FW16.png From the DVD's, listed inside the cover.

[Gopher] Huh, never noticed that before. I feel stupid now. heheh

Buddy13 FW16.png In the first season's discs, they aren't called "Acts" but it's the same principle.

Characters[edit]

Buddy13 FW16.png I removed the non-recurring characters from the list. There's really no point in listing them.

Links[edit]

I intentionally left off repetitive links. Only the first instance of a given term really needs to be linked (except episode names and such). Linking every instance of the name "Fry" (especially in the same sentence) gets a bit visually distracting.

[Gopher] Yeah, I realised that and stopped. For really long pages, I'd still add a link if the previous linked name isn't still on the page.[/Gopher]

Klepto Bender[edit]

I just thought of a theory. You know how, before meeting Fry, Bender lived a mundane life of doing what was expected of him? When he was busted for reaching into the claw-machine, because he was assumed to be cheating - that might've actually been how his stealing habit was started. Mcfry00 22:37, 18 May 2008 (PDT)

I suppose it's possible, though I'd think the real trigger (if there was one) was the electrocution in Space Pilot 3000, it triggers his willingness to "de-bend" things. So it may have affected his programming in other ways. - Quolnok 00:01, 19 May 2008 (PDT)
Yes, but we still see him trying to avoid paying for the Suicide Booth, which is before. Maybe the real trigger was when he learnt what the girders he bended was for. --SvipTalk 06:06, 19 May 2008 (PDT)
Ah, touché. Though it could still just be the personality variables in his programming.- Quolnok 06:19, 19 May 2008 (PDT)

Episode Title[edit]

Uh, I was just wondering, isn't this episode called 'Episode 2: The series has landed'? Maybe this is a region difference, but I'm just not sure. Wikipedia seems to say that it is just 'The Series Has Landed'. I'm sure you guys would have gone through this before, but I was just wondering. --Fatt Daddy Inc. 04:54, 1 October 2008 (UTC)

The alternative title is mentioned in the Trivia section. --SvipTalk 10:25, 1 October 2008 (UTC)

Continuity[edit]

Wasn't one of the three robot daughters also in the Miss Universe pageant or something? I remembered a minute ago, but the thoughts just fell out of my head. --Buddy 11:49, 3 January 2009 (UTC)

Yup, The Crushinator - Miss Earth's Moon. - Quolnok 12:45, 3 January 2009 (UTC)
...which should be listed in the Continuity section... --Buddy 19:44, 3 January 2009 (UTC)

Goof[edit]

I just noticed something. Shortly After the professor says, "I am already in my pajamas" we see the Earth from the Moon. In this shot (the one of Fry and Leela's view out the lander window), it appears that it is mid-morning in New New York (assuming that it's in the same geographical location as Old New York). Not really the time for the Professor to be getting ready for bed... --Megatronacepticon 07:44, 13 May 2009 (UTC)

Perhaps, but he is senile. And old people go to be early. And he's always in his pajamas, so he could really say that any time he wanted. Also, animals never had a war; who's the real animals? --Buddy 12:37, 13 May 2009 (UTC)
