The Why of Fry - S5-E8

Corrected entry: When Fry blows his past self into the freezing chamber, Future Fry begins to disappear. He should not, as this is NOT a paradox. Fry would need to go into the future so he could go back in time to confront Nibbler. Fry should instead disappear after he tells Nibbler to change his mode of transport, as this change would prevent him from going back in time, which is a paradox.

Correction: Strictly speaking there is no way to prove what should or shouldn't be a paradox. Fry was changing the fabric of time and so unless we saw everything that happened we can't see what exactly pulled him back. However it is perfectly reasonable that he would disappear after letting himself be frozen because he would have stopped himself from being put into the future otherwise.

Fry/Bender: Pop a Poppler in your mouth, When you come to Fishy Joe's, What they're made of is a mystery, Where they come from, no one knows. You can pick 'em, you can lick 'em, You can chew 'em, you can stick 'em, And if you promise not to sue us, You can shove one up your nose.



As the power builds up in Bender, his left eye pops out, making him a cyclops, subsequently being eaten by the Cyclops eater. After the monster dies, Bender comes out, and has two eyes in the long shot, but puts his left eye back in the close up.



The robot devil is voiced by Dan Castellaneta, the voice of Homer Simpson.
