Great episode. As said before the theme music was a nod to Star Trek.
But so was the entire episode, Its a re-write of the original series episode "amok time" where spock has to mate. He ends up fighting kirk. One of the weapons zoidberg had to choose from was from that episode as was the national anthem.

For all us Zoidberg fans out there, this episode was probably heaven.

And for anyone who ain't a Zoidberg fan {though i don't see how you couldn't like him} the episode was still brilliantly funny.

"Don't worry, the love miyster will take you under his wing"
"What? Now there's a bird involved!?"

Great episode. I loved the gym scenes and the fight at the end.

"Dr. Zoidberg: I shall begin here [points at Fry's neck] in the gonads!
Philip J. Fry: [to crowd] Shhh! Don't correct him!"

All rise for our national anthem. What makes Futurama great is the geek humor. Only hard core trek fans would've gotten that reference. I think they have to realize by now, if they haven't already, that only geeks will watch Futurama, so why not cater to them?

This one along with "A head in the polls" is my favorite of season 2.
Zoidberg has never been better, and that's perhaps the biggest compliment an episode could get.

"Well Fry, it's been a long time since medical school. So tell me: Disemboweling of your species, fatal or non-fatal?"
"Large bet on myself in round one!"

Excuse me, I have to go take my suicede pill. I can die a happy man now!

Loved the fight scene between Fry and Zoidburg. The national anthem of the Star Trek fight music was excelent. As were all the Vulcan weapons and a pair of shell crackers.
