* IHaveThisFriend: Said after Zapp asks:
-->'''Zapp:''' Let me ask you a serious question, Leela: Does the company that made your bra make a girdle as well?



* TheMutiny: Zapp convinces Fry and Bender to join one in order to remove Leela as captain of the Planet Express Ship and replace her with him. They later stage a counter-mutiny when Zapp’s insane plans threaten to get them all killed. The episode ends with Professor Farnsworth chewing out the Planet Express crew, and Leela muttering, "Let's mutiny!"

'''Bender:''' Yeah, you're one dynamite lady. Can we have a week off?\\
'''Leela:''' No.\\
'''Fry:''' Please?\\
'''Bender:''' Come on, Captain.\\
'''Leela:''' Oh, alright.\\
'''Farnsworth:''' ''(overhearing)'' No time off!\\
'''Fry:''' Aw, man!\\
'''Leela:''' Let's mutiny!

Added DiffLines:

* CharacterizationMarchesOn: In his first appearance, the Hyper-Chicken is depicted as a complete idiot who only asks inadmissible and/or irrelevant questions, and nearly gets the very open-and-shut case against Zapp thrown out via his incompetence. In future episodes, while he's still far from the best lawyer around, he's nowhere near as outright incompetent as depicted here.

** Kif walking around without gloves on, since his species reproduces through touch.

to:

** Kif walking around without gloves on, since his species reproduces through touch. Though this reproductive cycle is only triggered by powerful feelings of love, so as long as he is not in this emotional state then gloves would not be needed.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Homage}}: Zapp and Kif are thrown out of the military and have to live like hobos on the streets. Zapp dresses up in cowboy leather clothing and hustles on a street corner, to the tune of "Everybody's Talkin' At Me". The entire montage is a straight homage to ''Film/MidnightCowboy''.

Added DiffLines:

** Hermes referring to ''Star Trek'' openly, in a way that suggests nobody knows about it.


Added DiffLines:

** After a whole episode being the OnlySaneMan, at the very end of the episode Leela tells Fry and Bender they're going to mutiny against the Professor when he won't let them have time off.


Added DiffLines:

* MeanBoss: Leela, in a rare combination with BenevolentBoss. Yes, she is harsh on Fry and Bender, but they are legitimately lazy and stupid, so if she doesn't act mean, they'd never do their job (or screw it up beyond recovery). And she's a damn sight better captain than Zapp would ever be.


Added DiffLines:

* TakeThat: Doop's old headquarters are situated in New Jersey, with the building being dilapidated and run down.


Added DiffLines:

* YankTheDogsChain: Kif finally gets a captain he likes, with a boss who isn't Zapp, and even manages to laugh again. Just as he starts being happy, Fry and Bender mutiny. Then, Kif's dragged back into working with Zapp.
