Did You Know?


Hermes pops a pill when he says he has a hankering for a useless remedy created by a schoolteacher. The name on the bottle is Airbunk, a joke reference to the Airborne dietary supplement created by schoolteacher Victoria Knight-McDowell in the early 1990's. The effectiveness of the supplement was sketchy at best and the company was sued for false advertising. See more »

[first lines]
Yancy Fry, Sr.: Double time, soldier. I want this ice fishing operation up and running by 0800 hours.
Philip J. Fry: [shivers] It's too cold, Dad. My teen region is freezing off.
Yancy Fry, Sr.: [blows raspberry] You don't know what cold is. I once survived an entire week trapped in a Swiss glacier eating nothing but frozen Neanderthal. To this day, I can't stand the taste of early hominid.
