Okay, Chupa is suck or absorb... but where did they get "nibre"? -- 06:15, 29 April 2006 (UTC)

Just gibberish. See here for more info. Buddy13 19:22, 12 September 2006 (UTC)


OK, so I read the pages about Morlocks from both the X-Men and the time machine. In The Time Machine (Morlock) they are described as being spider-like and cannibalistic, neither of which describes the mutants in this episode, the only similarity being that they apparently evolved from humans and live underground. As for the X-men Morlocks (Morlocks (comics) they appear to also live under Manhattan and be mutated humans (but who in the X-Men isn't) but once again the similarities seem to end there. This really isn't substantial enough to claim that the mutants here are a reference to either of those so I removed the above. If someone who is more familiar with either fandom would like to defend the similarities I am (as always) open to discussion and willing to change my opinion. Just let me know here and maybe we can make the reasoning clearer the next time around. Thanks! Stardust8212 01:03, 9 November 2006 (UTC)

I soncond that Motion[edit]

Originaly in the cultural refrance section, it said that the title is a refrance to a song called "I Second That Emotion". Many people likely haven't heard of it, and it its more likely thay it is a take off of the frase "I second that motion" meaning to back something up.Uber Cuber 01:50, 19 January 2007 (UTC)

I disagree, I have never heard the phrase "I second that motion" whereas I second that Emotion was a very popular song in the US and it is common for Futurama to parody such songs in the titles of the episodes. Stardust8212 14:08, 25 January 2007 (UTC)
It's never been stated that it's based off of some stupid song. Do you have any proof of that it's based off of it? If not, let's just leave it at "I second that motion" due to the sheer fact that it's more common.
If you can give me some proof that it's more common then your argument might make sense but I have never heard that phrase used before and the song title is far more likely. And it's not "some stupid song" it was a top five hit single. Stardust8212 03:14, 29 January 2007 (UTC)

If you haven't heard that phrase before, I'm pretty shure you could hear it either parlement or the senate.Uber Cuber 03:18, 29 January 2007 (UTC)

Don't get me wrong, I know what you mean and I understand where the phrase comes from but it generally isn't used like that. Someone is more likely to make a motion and the other person to simply say "seconded" not the full phrase, I've never heard it used like that. "I second that motion" gets about 69,000 google hits whereas "I second that emotion" gets about 185,000. Also the majority of Futurama episodes take their titles from songs, movies or books which are often in some way related to the content of the episode. If this episode were about court room drama I might be swayed to agree with you but as it is clearly about emotions I am less prone to do so. If it makes you feel better we can remove it entirely until some sort of consensus on the matter is found. Stardust8212 03:32, 29 January 2007 (UTC)
How many google hits for "I second that emotion" are for the Futurama episode and how many are for the song? — AnemoneProjectors (talk) 12:31, 29 January 2007 (UTC)
"I second that emotion" -futurama gets 168,000 " I second that emotion" +futurama gets 15,100 Not surprisingly the song is significantly more influential than the television episode named after it. Not sure if there's a better way to narrow that down, I'm just doing pretty simple searches. Stardust8212 14:14, 29 January 2007 (UTC)
Anyway, unless someone can find a definite source, as it's not obvious which one it is, I don't think either should be mentioned, or perhaps both, as possibilities. — AnemoneProjectors (talk) 19:08, 29 January 2007 (UTC)
I agree. Since there is no proof for either side of the argument, we should just remove it until there is concrete evidence for the title.
I agree, anything else would promote WP:OR and fail WP:V. -- Chrislk02 (Chris Kreider) 13:38, 30 January 2007 (UTC)

Cultural references[edit]

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 00:46, 19 September 2007 (UTC)

Moved items that had returned to the article, still unsourced, back to this list. Stardust8212 03:23, 8 February 2008 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Futuramascene202.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Futuramascene202.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Bender's Song[edit]

Does anyone know what that bit of whistling Bender does whilst baking the cake is called? It's been bugging forever, I just call it the 'Cinema Song' because it's always in cinema-commercials here in Amsterdam.
