Added DiffLines:

* ChangelingFantasy: Leela, who only has one eye, believes she's an orphaned or abandoned alien, and dreams of meeting her species; later in the series, she discovers that her parents are mutants. Since mutants are [[FantasticRacism second-class citizens relegated to the sewers]], her parents figured their relatively normal-looking daughter would live a better life if everyone believed she was an alien.

* TwentyPercentMoreAwesome: When the Planet Express crew see the Music/BeastieBoys (or their heads) in concert, Leela marvels, "They're bustin' mad rhymes with an 80 percent success rate."
-->'''Bender''': I believe that qualifies as 'ill', at least from a technical standpoint.

* DVDCommentary: As in ''TheSimpsons'', there's a commentary for every episode, and Matt Groening is on all of them ([[OverlyNarrowSuperlative which makes him the likely world record holder for "most appearances on commentaries"]]). Each usually has five or six commentators, and starting in volume 5, they average out to eight, always including Groening, David X. Cohen, Creator/BillyWest and JohnDimaggio, along with writers, producers, directors and other cast members. The commentaries are known for often being as funny as the episodes, with the voice actors doing random bits as their characters.

** In "A Leela of her Own", the Atlanta Braves' uniform has a trident in place of the familiar tomahawk, a nod to "The Deep South", which showed {{Atlanta}} had become an UnderwaterCity.

*** In ''Insane in the Mainframe'', Fry (thinking he's a robot) takes a can of oil from Leela and puts it in his inside coat pocket after using it. Later in the episode when [[AxCrazy Roberto]] stabs him, the knife penetrates the oil can, making Roberto think that Fry really '''is''' a battle robot, causing him to FreakOut and run away, saving the crew.

* {{Calvinball}}: Blernsball, the game that baseball has evolved into by the year 3000. It's as impossible for Fry to follow as it would be for someone from the year 1000 to understand modern baseball. Of course, the writers are actually just making stuff up.

At various times, it included outfielders riding giant spiders, a multiball function, and a trick shot GoldenSnitch in the form of an outfield target that said "Hit Ball Here to Win Game."

** On that note, another episode ("Love and Rocket", mentioned below) was dedicated to parodying [[ASpaceOdyssey 2001: A Space Odyssey]]. It even parodied the sequence of shutting down HAL.
