Topics of Discussion

  • The commentators eat some chips and it causes them to talk less than usual.
  • When they started the series they thought people would care what the crew's actual jobs were (apparently they stopped thinking that by the time of this recording) and Bender was supposed to be the cook in the early episodes.
  • It's illegal to eat a horse in California.
    • Further discussion of who's eaten what animal and whether certain animals are legal to do so.
  • Billy needed to be told several times that the lines of the Hobo he played did not contain typos.
  • Origin of music in the training scene is the Karate Kid'.
  • The accusing parlour scene was to be about ten times as long, with many more clues, such as taping some of Fry's hair to the bottle.
  • Bender's composition.
  • Talking about Iron Chef, Matt is a fan.

Highlights / Quotes

  • Bender [episode]: My story's a lot like yours, only more interesting 'cause it involves robots.
    Brian: Sort of the motto of our show.


  • Bender clapped, it should have sounded metallic.
