Animation, continuity, and other goofs...
  • All the whole numbers have been retired, Leela says, yet the manager still wears #4 {GO}
  • The Cygnoids say "and put up clotheslines to hang up clothes everywhere" while the closed caption titles read "and to buy weapons to send to the terrorists back home". Someone probably forgot to redo the closed captions after the September attacks on the WTC. {K}
  • Leela pitched 70-some innings, yet never got an out. These are mutually exclusive at least in Baseball: In order to get credit for one-third of an inning, you must make 1 out. To get the whole inning, you must get 3 people out. Thus, Leela's actual stats would say she's officially pitched 0.0 innings. {m}
  • At the end of the episode, when Leela leaves the field (in the tunnel). As the screen shift from Leela, to Jackie and back (a few times), Leela's black make up line under her eye keeps disapearing and coming back. {D}

Comments and other Observations...
  • The Mets haven't won the World Series (in either Blernsball or Baseball) according to "Anthology of Interest I", so you have to wonder what made the guy give up Ultimate Robot Fighting League for this team. {MN*}
