Alright, so this thread has led to the renting of season two. I now have five days to watch 19 episodes of Futurama. Damn full-season-only rentals, don't they know I'm trying to watch the Sopranos as well?

dude you can totes watch 19 episodes in no time. it's easy enough to watch four or five episodes--one disc--a night.

plus season two has the deep south.

I took to saying "I am going to buy you so many lizards" to everyone

I also have been known to do this, and no one ever understands me.  It's such a good phrase for expressing gratitude!

And yeah, the Deep South is a great episode, if for no other reason than the fact that it has Hermes Conrad screaming in despair, "My MANWICH!"  As a fellow bureaucrat, I take a staunch pro-Hermes stance.

ella, for what it's worth, Season Two is easily my favorite.  You can do it!

Well, I did get to see my favourite line (I haven't seen that many episodes - it jumped around too much for me when it was on the air) last night:

In the hall of President's heads, discussing democracy, Gerald Ford claims that "I've never really considered elections to be integral to the process".

I'd be curious to hear other folks' favorite lines of the entire series. 

There are so many bons mots throughout, but for me, the absolute highlight is when Fry's having a moral crisis, and asks how he can live his life if he can't tell the difference between good and evil.  To which Bender responds with a casual, semi-dismissive, "They're both fine choices."

I've hardly seen any episode of the show more than twice, so I don't do super well with the accuracy of quotes.  But I do love when the head alien guy who has come to earth to stop the massacre of Popplers eats the hippie and gets incredibly high, and he says "Look at my hands......they can touch everything except themselves."  Also, I love the entire episode Anthology of Interest Vol. II, when Bender's turned into a human and Amy tells him part of being a human is about having self control, and he cuts her off and says "Whoa! I bet I can eat nachos and go to the bathroom at hte same time!"

My cousin Nathan also take immense joy in showing me the drawer where he keeps various lengths of wire.

I can't really watch the show anymore, but for a time I did love it. looking back, there's one line that truly stands out-

"In the corner? Why didn't I think of that!"

"You can crush my body but you can never crush my spirit!

OW! MY SPIRIT!"

"I find the most erotic part of a woman is the boobies."

"I am the man with no name: Zapp Brannigan."

"What really killed the dinosaurs?"
"MEEE!"


"The Big Brain am winning again! I am the greetest! Now I am leaving earth for no raisin!"

I guess those are all pretty easy. Now Space Ghost quotes, that I can ruin you with.

The flashback ending to the episode where they try to clone Fry's dog is like the most depressing shit I've ever seen.  Or maybe depicting a lonely dog grow old and die was supposed to be funny and I'm just a pussy

YES.

That episode of Space Ghost is the most I have ever laughed in front of a television screen ever.

Space Ghost: Okay. So, I'll talk to you when there's peace. In space.
Björk: Yeah, and you like salmon or you like trout?
Space Ghost: You know what, it doesn't matter. Because I love you so much...
Björk: Yeah?
Space Ghost: ... that it's time for you to go to sleep.
Björk: Okay.
Space Ghost: Because that's what it means to love a woman so much.

I totally did.  I remember when Space Ghost Coast to Coast first came out I wrote an e-mail to the e-mail address they flashed at the end of each episode asking what happened to Jan and Jase, if they'd been naughty or what.  and also what about his little monkey buddy Blip.  They wrote back and I don't remember what they wrote but it was brief and very funny.  This was around what, 1994 or so?  Don't recall exactly.  Anyway I always dug the original show, and Herculoids and all that shit.

Oh, that's such a great episode.  I often sing Hermes's bureaucracy song to myself when I'm filing things.

We'd treat people like swine, and make 'em stand in line, even if nobody paid us."

My favorite Space Ghost ep. is Kentucky Nightmare, no I am not just saying that to be nice.

The single quote I use from TV, more than any other, is, "Bears are crazy, Willie. They'll bite your head if you're wearing steak on it." Of course, I replace "bears" with whatever the subject is, "Willie" with whoever I'm addressing, and "steak" with whatever the subject eats or is attracted to. It is very funny, and by funny I mean puzzling.

Anyway.

"Its just like the story of the grasshopper and the octopus. All year long the grasshopper kept burying acorns for winter while the octopus mooched off his girlfriend and watched TV. Then the winter came, and the grasshopper died, and the octopus ate all his acorns.  And also he got a racecar. Is any of this getting through to you?"

Oh no you're not. That really made me cry.

I think my favourite line is where Zoidberg gets a 'leather daddy' shell and looks at the ass less shorts: "This one's like a summer guy!" actually I think a lot of my favourite bits involve Zoidberg.

As the candy hearts poured into the fiery quasar, a wonderous thing happened, why not? They vaporized into a mysitcal love radiation that spread across the universe destroying many many planets, including two gangster planets and a cowboy world. But one planet was at exactly the right distance to see the romantic rays, but not be destroyed by them. Earth! So all over the world couples stood together in joy. And me, Zoidberg! And no one could have been happier unless it would have been Valentine's Day. What? It was? Hooray!
