Highlights / Quotes[edit]

  • David X. Cohen: So Steward Burns you wrote this episode where does the car wash sequence come from?
  • Matt Groening: Like David said this was one of the first ideas for the shows we thought what if he was a delivery boy and what if he drank the Emperor
  • Billy West: (citing his inspiration for Zoidberg's voice) George Jessel. He had a voice like there was a potato lodged in his throat.
    Matt Groening: How'd you know about George Jessel?
    Billy West: How'd I know about him? I'm practically fifty, Matt!
  • David X. Cohen: I think we've had more physics discussions than any other show.
    Billy West: And a lot of drinking.
    David X. Cohen: That's what happens when you give up on the physics discussions.
