    • Berzerk!
      When Fry and Leela are discovered, the two robots that arrive from the Anti-Human Patrol shout "Get the humanoid! Get the Intruder!" and the speakers announce "Intruder Alert!" This is taken from the classic arcade game Berzerk!, where your human character is being hunted by robots. Not only that, but the robots who spoke these lines look exactly the same as the robots in Berzerk! Being tall, blocky bipeds with wide dome heads and eyes that can rotate 360 degrees around.
