Fulcrum County Prism
|Fulcrum County Prism|
|First appearance||The Beast with a Billion Backs|
Fulcrum County Prism is a prison designed with triangular buildings and laser forcefields. Professor Farnsworth and Dr. Wernstrom were imprisoned there in 3008, but managed to escape with the help of Pazuzu. [TBwaBB] Smitty and URL of the NNYPD seem to work in it, so the Prism might be located in New New York.

- It is a tribute to Folsom State Prison, the California prison made famous through Johnny Cash's performance there, and his song "Folsom Prison Blues".
URL: [Professor Farnsworth and Dr. Wernstrom are locked in a cell by lasers.] Look alive, death row. Your saggy asses got a visitor. [He turns off the laser bars.]
Professor Farnsworth: Regular or conjugal?
URL: [He shrugs.] She looked like a freak to me.
Leela: [To Professor Farnsworth and Dr. Wernstrom in the visitors' room.] The guard operating the X-ray machine came down with a sudden case of broken neck, so I was able to bring you that delicious cake you wanted. [She pulls a pink, multi-level cake out from under the table, points to her eye and blinks.]
Professor Farnsworth: I don't understand. Are you winking or blinking?
Leela: [She sighs and pulls out a pair of LED glasses that have two eyes on the front.] Hang on a second. [She uses them to wink at the two jailers.]
Professor Farnsworth: Got it!
Dr. Wernstrom: [Professor Farnsworth and Dr. Wernstrom stand in front of a table with the cake on it. Farnsworth presses down four of the six candles and the cake transforms into a small Smell-O-Scope. Wernstrom aims it at the anomaly and sniffs.] Curses! If we could only turn up the gain, we might smell clear through to the other universe! But we can't adjust it without a screwdriver.
Professor Farnsworth: Wait a moment. I think I was just shanked with a screwdriver! [He groans as he yanks a screwdriver out of his back.] Yes!
Dr. Wernstrom: A little more. A little less. Heavens to meteoroid! Smell this!
Professor Farnsworth: Holy mother of invention!
Dr. Wernstrom: We must notify the President at once!
Professor Farnsworth: But how can we? Oh, I wish, I wish, I wish we weren't in prison! [A caw is heard. It is Pazuzu, and he rises in front of the Professor.] Pazuzu!
Pazuzu: [He lands next to them and they grab onto his front legs.] You have one wish left, Professor. [He flies away from the prison, and the two sound scared about their current transportation.]
