Did You Know?


The scene where Fry, Bender, and Leela are standing in the shower, formulating their plan, and the ships computer says "I wish I learned to read lips" is another nod to 2001: A Space Odyssey - specifically the scene where Frank Poole (Gary Lockwood) and Dave Bowman (Keira Dullea) are in the work pod working out how to handle HAL's aberrant behavior.

When Bender dumps the Planet Express ship, the PE ship comes to a screeching halt, as seen from the outside of the ship, but when the scene goes back inside the ship, the stars are still moving outside the window. See more »


Turanga Leela: Look, I'm not saying Bender's not great, but have you ever considered that maybe he's, you know, not that great?
Planet Express Ship: You're just jealous! Nobody loves you 'cause you're tiny and made of meat!

The One With The Weird Romance...
13 October 2016 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I really liked this episode. It's funny, but it also makes you think about couple struggles. Especially if one of them is insane, and will literally kill anything that threatens that relationship.

In this episode, the Planet Express ship gets an upgrade, where the crew can now choose from a bundle of personalities for the ship to have. But when Bender picks one, he falls in love with the ship. Then the ship goes crazy when Bender tries to break it off. Talk about an almost fatal relationship.

Title card: When you see the robot, drink!

Best part of this episode: Pretty much anything.

Worst part of this episode: Nothing in particular.

Overall, I give this episode a 7 out of 10, which in my ratings book is: Great.
