Did You Notice...
  • Cubert has a Zapp Brannigan lunchbox, and Dwight has a periodic table lunchbox. {AH}
  • Once again, Fry is fooled by a phony pizza delivery prank. This time, though, he's not alone, as both Leela and Bender were also fooled. {JF}
  • Futurama continues The Simpsons tradition of bashing FOX. {JF}
  • The spacecraft Cubert and Dwight purchase looks nothing like the craft in the comic book page? They learned the lesson that every kid who bought Space Monkeys or sold GRIT found out - it's all a big rip-off. {JF}
  • Apparently, skill is needed to send or receive items through a mail tube, too. {JF}

External references
  • 1984 (Ad)
    • The Professor says "We Shall Prevail" in a manner much like the one in the ad by Apple for its Macintosh. {V}
  • Gerald Ford
    • The New New York Daily News headline "Space Monster to City: Grrrrrrr" is reminiscient of the famous New York Daily News headline "Ford to City: Drop Dead". {JF}
  • Klein Bottles
    • One of the beers is Klein's Beer, and is contained in a Klein Bottle, which is a one sided object similar to a moebius strip. {F}
  • Löbrau
    • Probably a reference to the German Löwenbräu (lions' brew) which is manufactured in Munich. {MW}
  • Manwich (food)
    • ConAgra Foods' famous sloppy joe sandwich brand. {JF}
  • Old English Malt Liquor
    • Olde Fortran Malt Liquor is probably a reference to the Pabst-brewed malt liquor Old English. (English is a human language, Fortran is a computer language.) {JF}
  • Pabst Blue Ribbon (beer)
    • Pabst Blue Robot is a reference to the Milwaukee brewing company, which brews Pabst Blue Ribbon and Old Milwaukee, among others. {JF}
  • Paper Boy
    • In this old Nintendo game, you have to deliver papers, by bike, like the two boys (somehow). Just the way the whole scenes are made up, remind me very much of that game, as everything sorta fits. {DS}
    • The dog that chases the two, also appeares in this game. {DS}
    • The sound of the crashing of the Blob's window, is the exact one from Paper Boy, I think. {DS}
    • The streets, Dwight and Cubert do the paper route in, looks like those in this game from the first Nintendo console. {DS}
  • Sam Adams
    • American beer brand named after Samuel Adams who led the Boston Tea Party. {MW}
  • St Pauli
    • St Pauli's Exclusion Principle Girl beer also refers to Wolfgang Pauli's Exclusion Principle which states no two electrons in an atom can have the same quantum number. Wolfgang Pauli was a physist who won the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1945. {II}
    • The red light district of Hamburg, Germany. {MW}
  • The Bible
    • The title is based on 1 Timothy 6:10: "For the love of money is the root of all evils; it is through this craving that some have wandered away from the faith and pierced their hearts with many pangs." {AH}
  • The Empire Strikes Back (Star Wars movie)
    • The dog chasing the hover-wagon is eaten by a space slug from this film. {AH}
  • The Little Prince (novell)
    • The Little Prince's baobab tree is missing, however. {JF}
    • The boy on top of the small planet is a refence to this book by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry {MW}
  • The Real World (TV series)
    • This MTV-produced series followed the lives of people in different cities (the city name was usually a subtitle). Although it supposedly showed unscripted real life, a lot of people found it really unconvincing. {AH}
  • The Tommyknockers (Stephen King book/miniseries)
    • Inventing a device that adjusts your voice too sound like someone else, then using it to mislead people by phone. {MJ}
  • Victoria's Secret (lingerie)
    • Bender is reading the robot version Victoria's Circuit {MW}
  • Wacky Packs stickers

Animation, continuity, and other goofs...
  • Dwight starts complaining about the late delivery of the hoverwagon before 4 seconds have elapsed. {AH}
  • This third season episode aired during the fifth season. {JF}
  • If Farnsworth had been declared dead 3 years ago, the sunset police would never have come for him, among other things. {Z}
  • When Farnsworth speaks into the voice-machine you can hear his own and the machine-generated voice. However, when someone else speaks into it you hear only the machine-generated voice. {JL}
  • The woman at Maple Craters speaks the dead language French {dn}

Comments and other Observations...
  • A Klein bottle is a three-dimentional figure with only one surface. {AH}
  • The Pauli Exclusion Principle states that every electron in an atom must have a unique set of quantum numbers. {AH}
  • A real Klein Bottle is a 4D object which can not be filled with liquids. The 3D one seen in this episode has only one surface which is both inside and outside. It can be filled with liquids, but one needs to go through its bottom with shaky motions. Not the best idea. {MW}
