Teenage Mutant Leela's Hurdles - S5-E7

Corrected entry: It is explained in the episode "A Clone of My Own" that when you reach 160 years old you are taken by the Sunset Squad to the Near Death Star. Why is it, then, when the Neptunian used the age machine, she didn't immediately inform the Sunset Squad? Surely, she couldn't have known that Farnsworth had once escaped from the Near Death Star with the aid of his crew?

Correction: It's never said that what the sunset squad do is legal. They may just be robot rebels who have decided that they know best for the old humans. It's unlikely that they'd ever be found, because Zapp is the head of the Earth's defence forces, and he is amazingly inept. It's certainly never said that anyone agrees with what the Sunset Squad do, just that it's inevitable, and it's unlikely that anyone knows how to contact them (after all, it took the Smellascope for Fry and co to find them).

Teenage Mutant Leela's Hurdles - S5-E7

Corrected entry: It is established in the episode "A Clone of My Own" that French is an unknown, dead language. If this is true, then why does Dr. Farnsworth's gargoyle, Pazuzu, tell us good night at the end of the episode in French (bonne nuit)?

Correction: Latin is a 'dead language' nowadays but we use hundreds of Latin expressions (et cetera, post mortem, ante natal and so on ad nauseam) because they have been adopted into modern languages. There is no reason that this principle cannot hold true for 31st century French.
