Episode Summary

EDIT
When Zapp Brannigan crashes a space restaurant into Planet Amazonia, the crew discovers the planet is inhabited by a race of giant women who have found that life without the male gender is preferable. These Amazonian women worship a Fem-computer who sentences Fry and the rest of the guys to death. It is up to Bender; a man-bot and technically not a man, to intercede on the guys' behalf. Meanwhile Kif professes his love to Amy.moreless

  • Leela and Amy go on a doubledate with Zapp and Kif, until zapp ruins it and they land on a planet, where fry and bender later get captured, filled with large amazonian women led by a "femputer". The three non-robot males are sentenced to death by "snusnu"moreless

    This episode is funny, mostly for no reason, it's just so darn funny, like the scene where Zapp sings "lola" at karaoke night to win leela's, which is a great example of irony if you know the song, or the sequence where fry, zapp, and kif are sentenced to death by crushed pelvises, which they(fry,zapp) want to die from, by sleeping with the giant amazons until they get killed. This episode is one that should not missed.moreless
  • Hilarious

    Fry, Bender, Zap, Kif, Amy and Leela get stuck on a planet ruled by tall amazonian woman. When the guys mock them, their ruler, a femputer, sentences all of them to death... by snu-snu!



    This is easily one of their funniest episodes, I certainly think so. It has an OK plot, and usually the plot matters more to me than the humor, but this episode is so funny I make it an exception. Surely it is a hilarious episode and I like it a whole lot, one of my tops for the series, my overall grade is an A+, perfectmoreless
  • Death... by snu snu!

    10
    A great episode, and the beginning of the relationship between Amy and Kif, my second favorite couple in the show. Of course, my first favorite couple in the show is Fry and Leela. I was laughing through the whole episode, and I really loved it from beginning to end. It was a clever idea, and a great way to start a relationship.



    Kif asks Amy out on a date, and it turns out to be a double date with Zapp and Leela. The restaurant that they are in crashes into an Amazonian planet inhabited by woman, and it is up to Fry and Bender to save the four of them.moreless
  • Hilarious a lot of characters had me laughing at points.

    10
    This is a hilarious episode and some hilarious parts are when Kiff was reading Zapp's advice notebook to impress Amy and he read out loud to Amy if I said you had a beautiful body would take off your pants and dance around a little and I find the most erotic part of a woman the boobies and when Fry and Zapp where happy about death by snoo snoo but Kiff was horrified and Zapp said what are you gay Also it was hilarious when Kiff was saying how he meet Amy to Zapp and after he is finished Zapp acts interested and Kiff says I'm finished sir and it was very funny when Kiff was singing and when Zapp wanted to sing he just out of no where pushed Kiff out of the way. Overall a very funny episode that I highly recommend.moreless
  • Zap crash lands everyone on a planet of Amazons.

    9.9
    Zap and Kif go on a double (actually Leela calls it a 1 and a half) date with Leela and Amy. They go to a restaurant that circles the earth. Zap insists that Kif use his book of lines for talking to Amy. The lines are so lame and sexist that Amy wants to end the date early. Zap thinks he can rescue the disastrous date by flying the restaurant to a secluded area. He promptly crashes the ship on a planet of amazon women that don't like men. Fry and Bender come to the rescue, but also get caught by the women...moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (18)

    • The stone temple in which the Femputer resides has 2 large globes in front from which smoke flows out where the nipples would be.

    • The speakers in the Snoo-Snoo chamber from which the Femputer speaks are of the brand Sonya.

    • The brand name of Amy's tiny cell phone is printed on the charger....a CellMate.

    • When Zapp has finished his steaks at the restaurant you can see two bones in the shape of a "T" on his plate, quite literally showing that they were T-bone steaks.

    • The magazine Leela is reading while looking for apartments is called "Westside Cave Rentals". Westside Rentals is a popular service for finding apartments in the Los Angeles area.

    • When in the cave, Bender is able to remove his hand from chain and cuffs, so therefore, he would have been able to escape earlier.

    • LOOK CLOSELY: When the camera moves to show the Amazon planet, before it shows Leela, Kif, Amy and Zapp, the moon has a face and the eyes seem to be blinking.

    • Opening theme promotion: SECRETED BY THE COMEDY BEE

    • When Morbo finishes his song, the scene shows the entire restaraunt, including Kif, Leela, Zapp and Amy clapping. However, when the scene changes to Kif talking, everyone at the table instantly stops clapping, while the rest of the people still are.

    • In the Palm D'Orbit, Zap sings his version of Lola (by The Kinks). In the original version, there is a line "... Where you drink champagne and it tastes just like cherry-cola...". Zap refers in this line to 'coca-cola', which originates from the LP-version of this song.

    • During Kif's recollection of the events following "A Flight to Remember", Bender is seen in the background discarding the bracelet he got from the countess to remember her by. Bender had asked Hermes how much it was worth and Hermes told him it was fake.

    • Since they're on a female controled planet, the Sony speaker-box has been changed to Sonya.

    • When the water ripples, the reflection of Leela gets two eyes for one second.

    • While being walked through Amazonia, the chained Fry, Zapp and Bender happen to switch places in the order of the chain.

    • The restaurant is called 'Le Palm D'Orbit' though we've been repeatedly told that the French language is extinct in the year 3000.

    • Dr. Zoidberg's molted shell still has the eyeballs in place.

    • Amy and Leela put on lipstick, but seconds later, when they walk out, it's gone

    • During the scene where Zapp is on stage and then at the controls of the 'La Palm D'Orbit,' the front of his uniform goes from open, to buttoned, to open again.

  • QUOTES (50)

    • Bender: All I know is this gold says that was the best mission ever!

    • Leela: It's funny how the battle of the sexes was only resolved when a Manbot and a Fembot realised they loved each other.
      Bender: Yeah. By the way, if she calls, I'm not here.

    • Zoidberg: And that's how I got my new shell. It looks just like the shell I threw out yesterday and I found it in the same dumpster, but this one had a live raccoon inside. Pretty good story, eh, Hermes?
      Hermes: Stick to someone else, you windy barnacle!

    • Thog: Mighty Femputer. Small girl steal green kissy man. We kill her now?
      Fembot: Come back later. Leave me alone.
      Bender: Yeah, get lost! Ooh! I'm a scary Femputer. Release the prisoners! And bring gold. Lots of gold.
      Thog: Gold? Why Femputer want gold?
      Fembot: You heard the man.

    • Bender: You're no Femputer, you're a Fembot!
      Fembot: It's true. I disguised myself as a Femputer so I could rule the Amazonians.
      Bender: But why?
      Fembot: Why? Why? I came here from a faraway planet. A planet ruled by a chauvinistic Manputer that was really a Manbot. Have you any idea how it feels to be a Fembot living in a Manbot's Manputer's world?
      Bender: What?

    • Guard #1: How Tonk look?
      Guard #2: Tonk look good. Me fat.
      Guard #1: No, you look good. Tonk fat.

    • Bender: I'll miss you, meatbag.
      Leela: Me too, meatbag.
      Fry: Goodbye, friends. I never thought I would die like this. But I'd always really hoped.

    • Bender: Too true, Femputer. You're so wise. Kill 'em all, I say. Good riddance! Did I mention I'm not a man? I'm a manbot. It's an understandable mistake. You can let me down now, thanks.
      Kug: He big jerk like man.
      Bender: I sure am. But check the crotch. Nothing.

    • Leela: Femputer, be reasonable. Sure men are annoying and they wreck up whatever planet they're in charge of, but most of these men are sorta my friends. They don't deserve to die.
      Femputer: Hmm. Perhaps men are not as evil as Femputer thinks.
      Thog: But they make fun women's basketball.
      Femputer: What? Did you explain how the women's good fundamentals make up for their inability to dunk?
      Ornik: Yes. They still laugh.
      Femputer: The men must die.

    • Femputer: Death to the men. Death by snu-snu.
      Fry: Although the snu-snu part's gonna be pretty good.
      Zapp: Baby, it'll blow your mind.

    • Femputer: After lengthy femputations, I, Femputer, have decided the fate of the men. Femputer sentences them to death. By snu-snu!
      Fry: Yay!
      Zapp:Yeah!
      Kif whimpers
      Zapp: What are you, gay?

    • Thog: We hear tell men used for snu-snu. But all we have go on are ancient legend and subscription to Cosmo.
      Zapp: Just FYI, I could be used for snu-snu.
      Thog: Silence. You want die like last men visit Amazonia?
      Fry: What'd they die of?
      Kug: Crushed pelvises.

    • Fry: Leela, I'm through making fun of women. Now I want them to help me.

    • Thog: Femputer, we bring offering of bath beads and scented soaps.
      Femputer: Your gift pleases Femputer. Femputer demands to know why there are men on her planet.
      Fry: It was an accident, ma'am.
      Femputer: That does not fempute.

    • Amy: You all obey a big computer?
      Kug: Yes. It appear mysteriously just about time men die out.
      Leela: So why did you make it your leader?
      Ornik: It seemed like different kind of politician.
      Kug: Not beltway insider.

    • Thog: Here live vengeful, all-knowing leader. She decide men's fate.
      Fry: Is she hot?
      Thog: That not important. She all-knowing.
      Fry: In other words, "No".

    • Amy: This women-only planet is sounding better and better.
      Leela: I'm already looking for apartments.

    • Thog: This our comedy club. Humour here funny in different way.
      Ornik: It not reinforce stereotypes.
      Kug: Comedy come from character, real situations. Not abstract craziness.
      Bender: Translation: Boring!

    • Thog: Here stadium, where our women basketball teams play.
      Kug: We no can dunk, but good fundamentals.
      Ornik: That more fun to watch.
      Zapp(laughing): Oh, God, you're killing me! (Amazonian bashes his head) Ow! God, you're killing me!

    • Leela: Where are all the men in your society?
      Ornik: Men die out many year ago.
      Bender: With all these women around they were probably nagged to death. Are you with me, fellas?

    • Thog: Women go free. Men stay in chains.
      Ornik: We take them to our leader. She know what do.
      Fry: Pft. A female leader?
      Leela: Fry, shut up.
      Fry: Yes, Captain!

    • Bender: Oh, your God!

    • Zapp: Well, hello! I usually don't say this but you are the most beautiful trio of gigantic ladies I've ever laid eyes on.

    • Kug: Me hear people, but me not see people.
      Thog: No big deal. Everybody make mistake.

    • Zapp: Well, nothing to do now but repopulate the human race. (To Leela) Just me and you! (to Amy) And maybe you.

    • Fry: We gotta go rescue them!
      Bender: Eh, I don't know.
      Fry: Bender! Think of the señoritas!
      Bender: Vámonos!

    • Zoidberg: Ah! Muy macho! Hey, gringos, here comes El Zoido to ruin your drinking water!
      Bender: Whoa, whoa, whoa! I'm Mexican and I find that offensive.

    • Zapp: You win again, gravity!

    • Leela: We're going home. Call us a space taxi.

    • Zapp: There's only one sure-fire way back into a woman's heart and parts beyond. I speak, of course, of karaoke.
      Kif: My years in the DOOP Boys' Chorus will not have been in vain!

    • Kif: Amy, (reading) if I said you had a beautiful body would you take your pants off and dance around a little?
      Amy: What?
      Leela: Lieutenant Kroker!
      Kif (reading): I find the most erotic part of the woman is the boobies.
      Amy: Kif!
      Kif: Oh, my!
      Leela: This half-date is entirely over.

    • Amy: Kif, you're so quiet. You haven't said a word all night.
      Kif: Well, um, um... hello.

    • Kif: Oh, and I'd like-
      Zapp: Kif's not hungry. Kif, this place is expensive. I'd like two steaks and the ladies will have some very sensual salads - with low-cal sensual dressing.

    • Zapp: Well, well. This looks to be one disturbingly erotic date.
      Leela: Half-date.
      Zapp: Waiter, bring us a bottle of wine.
      Leela: Half-bottle.
      Zapp: And some oysters on the half-shell.
      Leela: Quarter-shell.

    • Kif: Um, sir? I don't go out on many dates and, um, what if I can't think of anything to say?
      Zapp: Here's my personal book of pickup lines. Say as many of them as you can as fast as you can. Don't stop for any reason.

    • Zapp: I'm calling to negotiate a double date. You and me, Kif and Amy.
      Leela: Forget it.
      Zapp: Then let the negotiations begin. I propose we go out on 10 dates.
      Leela: How about zero?
      Zapp: Nine.
      Leela: Zero.
      Zapp: Seven.
      Leela: Zero.
      Zapp: Eight?
      Amy: Please, Leela? Kif's like the sweetest guy who's ever liked me.
      Zapp: Five, and that's my final offer... four.
      Leela: One.
      Zapp: Two.
      Leela: One half.
      Zapp: I'll take it.
      Zapp: We'll meet you tonight for part of dinner and the first half of a movie.

    • Kif: I met her a year ago... when we were escaping from that cruise ship you piloted directly into a black hole.
      Zapp: Yes! It was in all the papers.

    • Leela: What's wrong? Did you swallow your phone again?
      Amy: Some guy's been calling and hanging up 10 times a day for a year.
      Leela: Men who call too much are the worst... I bet.

    • Zoidberg: So long. I'm off to toss this old shell in the dumpster and maybe pick up those potato chips Amy didn't finish yesterday.
      Amy: Those were toenail clippings.
      Zoidberg: A feast is a feast.

    • Fry: He's dead.
      Bender: What?
      Amy: Oh, no!
      Farnsworth: He always seemed so full of life; laughing, singing, begging for scraps. And now this.

    • Hermes: Now we all love Nibbler, so it's only fair that we all pitch in and clean it up together. Still, I propose we make Zoidberg do it.

    • Hermes: People, we got a problem: Little Nibbler's been coughing up hairballs.
      Leela: Well, so has Fry. What's the big deal?

    • Kif: (singing) Once upon a time I was falling in love... but now I'm only falling apart.
      Amy: Oh that's so emotional.
      Kif: There's nothing I can do, a total eclipse of the hear...
      Zapp: Amateur hour's over.

    • Zapp: We need rest. The spirit is willing, but the flesh is spongy, and bruised.

    • Zapp: There's not a restaurant built I can't fly. (piloting the palm d'orbit) She's built like a steak house, but she handles like a bistro.

    • Brannigan: Oh, I'm sorry. You're crying. Like a woman!

      (Kif sobs)

      Brannigan: It's alright. I've always thought of myself as a father figure to some of my more pathetic men.

    • Leela: Bender, maybe you can interface with the Femputer and reprogram her to let them go.

      Bender: Maybe you can interface with my ass! By biting it!

    • Femputer: The one called Zapp will be snoo-snooed by the large women. He that is designated Fry will be snoo-snooed by the petite women. And Kif, as the most attractive male, will be snoo-snooed by the most beautiful women of Amazonia, then the large women, then the petite women, then the large women again.

    • Recorded Message: The number you have dialed has crashed into a planet. Please make a note of it.

    • Leela: What planet is this anyway?
      Zapp: I don't know. This whole sector is uncharted.
      Kif: It is not uncharted! You lost the chart.

  • NOTES (8)

    • This episode was nominated for a Emmy Award for Outstanding Animated Program (For Programming Less Than One Hour).

    • In a review by IGN, it was voted the greatest Futurama episode ever.

    • This is the first episode of Production Season 3

    • Alien code: In the season 3 DVD, in the usual list of warnings and legal notes roll at the beginning of each DVD, one of them is written in Alien Code #1. When translated, it reads "INTERGALACTIC TERRITORIES. Interplanetary and domestic laws prevent the copying of DVD's, Videotapes, Holodiscs, as well as sound and smell recordings. Unauthorized copying, duplicating, reproduction or any reuse of this program or it's accompanying thesaurus is prohibited, banned, barred, impermissible and out of line. Violators must immediately take the disc or videotape onto which you intended to copy this program, and break it over your knee. As required by the section 629 of the Blerne copyright treaty, enacted 29, 2982 truly you should be ashamed of yourself, under section 629A of the treaty."

    • Alien code: In the Season 3 DVD, a clip is added that was originally removed for television broadcast. It is a black screen with Alien Code #1 written in white letters. It reads: "This program has been modified from its original version. It has been formatted to fit your pathetic, 21st century, human-made, non-interactive television that only broadcasts to two senses and doesn't even look back at you (except in Utah.)"

    • This is the third appearance of the Amazonian's. The first was in "Brannigan Begin Again," as the DOOP ambassador from planet Amazonia, and the second was seen at the Miss Universe pageant in "The Lesser Of Two Evils".

    • This episode is the first reference to Kif and Amy's relationship since it started in "A Flight to Remember".

    • Originally scheduled to air January 14, 2001.

  • ALLUSIONS (10)

    • Twilight Zone

      The computer that tells a group of people how to act and lives while dwelling in a cave is a reference to the twilight zone episode "The Old Man in the Cave"

    • Lipps, Inc.: Funkytown

      This is the song sung (in karaoke) by Morbo while Zapp, Kif, Leela, and Amy are dining at 'La Palm D'Orbit.'

    • Zapp: (preparing to sing) They call me the velour fog.

      This is a take on Mel Torme's nickname, "The Velvet Fog." Of course, Zapp is no where close to Torme in the singing department.

    • Jurassic Park:

      Ripples in a glass and in a puddle of water as the Amazons approach.

    • The Wizard of Oz
      A normal Fembot disguises herself as a huge Femputer and becomes the almighty ruler. Sound a little similar to the story of the Wizard in "The Wizard Of Oz."

    • Bonnie Tyler: Total Eclipse of the Heart
      The song that Kif sings to Amy. Very fitting considering they're orbiting a Moon.

    • Zapp: Zapp's Singing
      Groening has said that Zapp is based on "Captain Kirk playing William Shatner." Zapp's singing is a tribute to Shatner's famous Spoken-Word singing of "Rocket Man" at the Sci-Fi awards.

    • Femputer: Death By Snoo-Snoo
      The concept of this episode is based on a famous dirty joke that got around the Futurama office. The punchline of the joke, "Death By Snoo-Snoo."

    • Title: Amazon Women in the Mood
      The title is a take on the classic B movie "Amazon Women On The Moon".

    • Zapp: I met her in a bar down in....
      This is the opening line to a song "Lola" Zapp changes the name to Leela in an effort to 'woo' her. What Zapp clearly doesn't know however, which makes the whole thing even funnier is that Lola is about a man who falls in love with a woman. However throughout the song something... odd is suggested. By the end of the song we discover that Lola is a man. Thus, this is not a great way to woo Leela.
