Topics of Discussion

  • Some exciting comment is to be made ten minutes in.
  • The first appearance of talking money?
  • Lots of old style jokes through out the episode.
  • Fry's scratch lottery tickets being the way for him to loose money was to be much longer and was based on David's mother having won $100 in tickets, spending the winnings on another $25 in tickets, then $4 then none.
  • Discussing the design of Roberto
  • They didn't include "Oww my side" as it wouldn't be as funny.
  • Each time Bender is X-rayed he looks a little different
  • Dr. Perceptron's sparks are hand drawn.
  • Pointing out robots from previous episodes
  • When planing episodes they use coloured cards with writing, the blue ones, used frequently, have "trial", "run away" and "tour" all of which are used here.
  • That robots are built to be insane, like the mad hatter robot.
  • The Crickets being crazy was David's idea, he apparently was the only one who wanted them.
  • Difficulty of conveying emotion through robots and that a Cyclops is actually harder.
  • Fry's "Battle droid" attack is like one used in The Simpsons which Matt and his sister used when they were kids.
  • They made sure to keep Roberto alive.
  • Talking about what the original closing scene was going to be.
