music: "Theme from Futurama" by Christopher Tyng


Opening subtitle--"If you don't watch it, someone else will".

Trivia: One of the books that Bender throws into a fire is written in alien text. The title of that book reads 'Backwards Time Travel Made Easy'.

Goof: In the year 50,000,000 one of the women's breast size changes between shots.

It can be theorized that the reason the universe repeats itself during the trio's voyage is, in fact, their continued existence following their universe's collapse, even as a time-traveling anomaly, meaning their very presence affects the new universe's formation, namely in repeating the universal timeline resulting in their creation, life and circumstances leading to their flight (Hereby explaining why the universe is an exact duplicate).


"Pizza delivery boy and major underachieving loser, Philip J. Fry, is cryogenically frozen by accident on New Year's Eve, 1999 and re-awakened 1000 years later in the 31st century".
