Who is the headless character flying the ship with nixon and wernstrom? I vaguely remeber him but cannot recollect
I don't recall at the moment but it is most likely the headless body of Spiro Agnew, I know there was at least one mention of that but I'm not sure if it was this episode. Stardust8212 15:29, 16 May 2007 (UTC)
As I recently brought up at the wikiproject (here) it is time we did something about the cultural references sections. I am moving all unsourced references to the talk pages for the time being in hopes of creating a better, more thoroughly sourced article. Please discuss this action at the wikiproject link above so as not to split it over 72 different talk pages. The information removed from the article follows. Stardust8212 01:22, 1 June 2008 (UTC)
One of Farnsworth’s failed robots is a parody of C-3PO from Star Wars. The same robot was crushed afterwards by a hydraulic press, like T-800 in the end of the movie The Terminator (As it is being crushed, it exclaims "Oh, dear", as C-3P0 is prone to doing).
Farnsworth’s line “The Jedi are going to feel this one!” is a reference to the destruction of Alderaan in Star Wars: A New Hope, after which Obi-Wan Kenobi said, “I sense a great disturbance in the Force, as if millions of voices cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced."
Nixon's henchman "headless body of Agnew" is a headless version of Spiro Agnew who was Nixon's vice-president in his 1968 presidency. Agnew infamously resigned after being charged with tax evasion.
Bender's unexpected reaction to the imperiled turtle in Holland is a reference to Blade Runner, in which the replicant Leon reacts strangely when told about a similarly-afflicted turtle while undergoing a Voight-Kampff Test.
In its initial airing, the episode received a Nielsen rating of 2.6/4, placing it 97th among primetime shows for the week of November 11-17, 2002. 
The reason this information isn't in the article is because either Highbeam Research or Reed Business Information screwed up and titled the article "Ratings for Nov. 11-17" when internal evidence (specifically, the Monday Night Football game referenced therein) indicates that these are really the ratings for Nov. 4-10, 2002.

Out of curiosity, I hammered out a few numbers and found that adding a week to the Earth's orbit would increase the Earth-Sun distance by less than 2 million miles, and decrease its solar energy absorption by only 0.0376%. This doesn't seem like enough of a difference to negate the massive global warming they talk about in the episode... is it? --Lukeonia1 (talk) 07:08, 14 March 2009 (UTC)
