A Big Piece of Garbage - S1-E8

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Leela is telling Fry how even his food is recycled (just after they have seen the video of the origin of the garbage-ball) you can see both Fry's drink can and sandwich on the table. After the closeup of Fry his sandwich has disappeared but in the next full-table shot it's back (albeit moved to Fry's right along with his drink can). (00:10:00)

A Big Piece of Garbage - S1-E8

Continuity mistake: When the team first meet the Mayor, the writing on the Mayor's nameplate disappears after it is first seen, and the button on his desk that he pushes wasn't there before. (00:10:35)


A Big Piece of Garbage - S1-E8

Other mistake: When Professor Farnsworth was presenting the crude drawing of the Smelloscope to his scientific peers, he wiped the napkin which it was drawn on on his forehead, causing all the ink to smudge. But why isn't there any ink on Professor Farnsworth's head? (00:05:30)

Lrr: I am Lrr. Ruler of the planet Omicron Persei 8.

Answer: The initial number is 0101100101 = 357. When reflected in a mirror, however, it reads 1010011010 = 666 (the number of the Beast). It is a parody of The Shining, where the words Red Rum are seen as the word murder in the mirror.
