    • City Lights

      The love story between Zoidberg and the flower girl alludes to Chaplin's 1931 film City Lights where Chaplin falls in love with a blind flower girl. After a series of hilarious events he comes by the money needed for an operation to restore her eyesight. He gives it to her even though he fears she won't be able to love him once she sees that he is just a poor street bum.

    • Sense and Sensibility

      The title is a reference to the Jane Austin novel Sense and Sensibility which revolves around the life, loves, and romances of a pair of non-affluent sisters as well as their heartbreaks. Likewise, this episode is mainly about the romance and impending heartbreak of Zoidberg, who is far from prosperous.

    • Tonya Harding

      When Tonya attacks Bender by hitting him in the knee to sabotage his ability to compete against her. The attack, as well as her name, are a reference to the figure-skater Tonya Harding. In 1994, Harding’s husband and bodyguard hired a man to attack Nancy Kerrigan to prevent her from competing against Tonya by breaking her leg. Tonya later confessed to being involved in the conspiracy.

      I disagree with "bladexdsl", this episode was great and I'm glad that Zoidberg is not alone anymore. It's not one of the best episodes of this season but It's not the worst. Saturday Morning Fun Pit episode is much worse than this episode.

      Oh no, that odious title must surely go to "Saturday morning fun pit"! I actually enjoyed this ep, nice spoof of Chaplin's "City Lights" and the Tonya Harding/Nancy Kerrigan controversy. Just one question: Does anyone know what the title is a pun of (they usually are)?

      Sense and Sensibility, a 19th century english novel by Jane Austen.
