Trivia: In the Slurm ad, there's a condition for the competition which fills the screen and is written in Alienese. It says "the following species are ineligible: Space wasps, Space beavers, any other species with the word space in front, space chickens and the elusive yak-face."
Trivia: In the beginning, Bender and Fry are watching an episode of "The Scary Door", based on The Twilight Zone. In it, a man is billed as "The Last Man On Earth", and he is walking into a library. This is a mirror of the episode "Time Enough At Last", where the man is the survivor of a bombing holocaust, and winds up at a public library, saying there was time at last to read, but breaks his glasses.Movie Nut
Trivia: When Leela is talking to Alkazar, in the morning after breakfast, he says "please, call me Al." A nod to Al Bundy from "Married With Children." Katey Sagal (the voice of Leela), played Peggy Bundy, the wife of Al. Later, they have Al sitting on a couch, and Leela having her hair done up, like in "Married With Children."Bishop73
Trivia: This episode has a couple of nods to Sci-Fi movies. In the initial attack on Monument beach, the Omicronians destroy the White House the same as Independence Day. Later, Fry is wearing the same helmet as the Rebels in Star Wars, and the Planet Express ship goes by a turret that is copied from the Death Star's turrets.Movie Nut
