Futurama

Bend Her - S5-E13

Question: At the end of this episode, when they are performing the "soap opera" for Calculon's benefit, Leela is dressed in a black dress and blonde wig with sunglasses. This ensemble looks really familiar to me, for some reason, and I wondered if it was perhaps a parody or homage to a well known soap character/actor/plot. Can anyone clue me in? And, on that note, is Fry's character of 'Congo Jack' a parody of something or just a stereotypical soap character?

Chosen answer: Ally McBeal.
