Trivia

  • In "Brannigan, Begin Again", Farnsworth says that the DOOP is similar to the United Nations of the 20th century. This suggests that the U.N. was somehow made extinct sometime between the 20th and 30th century. "The Prisoner of Benda" proves, however, that this never happened.
    • Farnsworth's statement could mean that the U.N. has simply changed in form or function since the 20th century, rather than that it dissolved entirely.
    • It could be that the Professor's mention of "in your time" isn't a reference to the U.N.'s change or dissolution, but rather it's the Professor's (failed) attempt to get Fry to understand.
