- First Appearance: Gen. Zapp Brannigan, Lt. Kif Kroker, and Nibbler.
- Bender's love of cooking is first hinted at in this episode (he immediately offers to cook Nibbler).
- What Could Have Been:
- Zapp was written for Phil Hartman, but Hartman was murdered before he could record any lines. Billy West took over, doing a spot-on impression of Hartman.
- Zapp was supposed to get fatter every time he reappeared on screen, but the animators were too disgusted by the results to do it. They instead used the design sketches of Zapp at his fattest as a basis for the grotesquely obese sauna user that Amy unknowingly hits on in "Why Must I Be a Crustacean in Love?"
