    • Farnsworth: Indeed, you see that fossil was made of dolemite - the tough black mineral that won't cop out when there's heat all about! By contrast, observe the lava's effect on this ice swan.(Uses tongs to fetch an ice swan from the freezer and drops it into the lava) Of course that would have melted even at room temperature, I just wanted to get rid of it. But had it been made of that righteous mineral dolemite, theres a slim chance it might have survived. Fry: So Seymour might still exist? Farnsworth: Perhaps, for a few minutes. It's dolemite, baby!

    • Bender: (after retrieving Seymour) And that's why they call me Bender the magnificent! (eyes melt) Hey! Where'd everybody go?

    • Fry: 15? You mean he lived for 12 more years after I got frozen? Farnsworth: Indeed. Fry: Stop the cloning. (He starts smashing the Clone-O-Mat) Farnsworth: Oh, sure! Smash the smart guy's machine!

    • Leela: Bender's been down there too long. I'm going in after him. (She starts to rip off her wrestling suit) Farnsworth: Professor! Lava! Hot!

    • Bender: I assumed you were just pretending to love the dog to toy with my emotions. Oh, what have I done? (He starts to cry) Zoidberg: You didn't do anything. Don't beat yourself up.

    Notes (10)

    • While Wisconsin and Stanford did play in the Rose Bowl game in 2000, the score shown on the TV is incorrect. In the second quarter of the game, Stanford was ahead 9 to 3. The game Fry's mom is watching says Wisconsin is ahead 9 to 3.

    • In the episode Fry tells Seymour to wait for him until he returns from the delivery, which of course he never does and Seymour stays waiting outside the pizza store until he dies, this could be a reference to Greyfriars Bobby.

    • Seymour died at 15. That's 105 in dog years.

    • In the flashback of Fry delivering the pizza to applied cryogenics, when he dumps the pizza box down on the table, you can see Nibbler's eye-stalk poking out of the garbage can. You can also see Future Fry's shadow on the floor as we see the chair tip over (as explained in The Why of Fry).

    • Fry was singing "I'm walking on Sunshine" in a flash back of him on his way to work. He has sung this song before in another episode where he is singing in the shower.

    Trivia (22)

    • The ancient song Fry dances to is "The Hustle" by Van McCoy.

    • If Seymour was fossilized when he was 15, he was frozen in the year 2012. 2012 is the year the Mayan calendar ends.

    • As of mid-2006, it is the most fan-reviewed episode on the 'Can't Get Enough Futurama' website, and is considered to be one of the best Futurama episodes by fans. It is also regarded as one of the most poignant episodes in the series.

    • Leela uses a pile driver move on Amy, usually seen in wrestling shows.

    • Seymour waiting for Fry
      Seymour waiting years for Fry to come back could be a reference to the poem The Odyssey, written by Homer, when Odysseus's dog waits 20 years for his owner to return.

    • Greyfriars Bobby Seymour mirrors the actions of the famous Scottish dog Greyfriars Bobby, a Skye Terrier who stayed by the grave of his owner John Grey for 14 years until he himself eventually passed. Bobby’s memorial reads
      “Greyfriars Bobby  died 14th January 1872  aged 16 years  Let his loyalty and devotion be a lesson to us all”

    • The Clone-O-Mat's dial acts like the 1970's Fisher-Price toy See 'N Say.

    • Mini-Golf Sign: Because someone inconsiderate created unsanitary condition, the windmill green is closed until further notice. This alludes to an episode, Natural Born Kissers, of "The Simpsons" in which Homer and Marge make love in a mini-golf windmill.

    • Professor: It's Dolemite baby!
      Aside from being a REAL metal, the line the Professor says is reference to the cornball film Dolemite.
