  • Quotes

    • Amy : It worked! They totally think we're making out!
      Fry : Yea! (He and Amy begin juggling)...Hey, why aren't we making out?
      Amy : I don't know.

    • Bender: Yep, everything worked out great thanks to good old Bender.
      Leela: Come on! It's not like you intentionally set us up with bad dates so we'd spend Valentine's Day together.
      Bender: Didn't I, Leela? Didn't I?
      Leela: No! You didn't! You just corralled a bunch of stiffs at the bus station and pocketed our money!
      Bender: True. But in the end, isn't that what Valentine's Day is really all about?
      Leela: Yeah.
      Fry: I guess so.

    • Farnsworth: I still don't understand why you wouldn't let me graft a laser cannon onto your chest. To crush those who disobey you... But I guess we're just two different people.

    • Zoidberg: There you are, good as new. Except for your dorsal fin. I'm afraid I couldn't find it after the crash.
      Fry: Can I live without it?
      Zoidberg: If you call that living.

    • Gary: I'm a banking industry regulator.
      Leela: Really? Y'know, I heard that banking industry regulations are really very simple.
      Gary: Oh, no, that's not true. You see, modern banking regulations are a product of five different regulatory traditions. Six if you wanna get technical.
      Leela: Oh, I do.

    • Leela: Why, if it isn't my favourite head on Amy's body: Fry.

    • Fry: Wait, come back, uh, darling.
      Petunia: Can't, hon', I gotta catch my bus back to Nutley. I'd kiss you goodnight but I lost my teeth pulling out a stump.

    • Sal: So anyways, Leela, I'd love to take a whack at ya but that 10:15 to Nutley ain't goin' nowheres without yours truly behinds the wheel.
      Petunia: Excuse me, did you say "10:15 to Nutley"?
      Sal: Why, yes I dids.
      Leela: Bender! Did you just round up our dates at the bus station?
      Bender: Of course not.
      Sal: Anybodys else for Nutley?
      Bender's customers get up and head for the door

    • Petunia: So tell me about your prospects. You a good gambler?
      Fry: Well, ma'am, I-
      Petunia: What's your game? Bingo? Keno? Wait a minute! You don't have your own body.
      Fry: No, but I control this arm.
      Petunia: Slots player, huh? Sorry, but I think I can do better.

    • Bender: Leela, meet your future husband Sal.
      Sal: Nice eyeball, eyeball.
      Leela: Nice ass, ass.

    • Bender: Now how about a rose for the lady? Five bucks a pop!
      Gary: I'll take one.
      Fry: Oh, yeah? Well I want one too.
      Bender: Eight bucks.
      Fry: But you just said-
      Bender: Demand suddenly skyrocketed. You all saw it!

    • Fry: She seems a little old for me.
      Bender: She is well-travelled. And I don't mean she travels a lot!

    • Amy: C'mon in, Gary! I'll just be another 20 minutes.
      Gary: I'll be waiting.
      Fry: 20 minutes? You're practically ready now!
      Amy: Yeah, but it's good to make them wait a little.
      Fry: Oh, God, it's true!

    • Bender: I got your hook-up, Fry. Now, my usual fee's 500 bucks, but seeing as how it's you, I'll need it in advance.

    • Fry: Why exactly did you shave your legs anyway? Are you expecting something to happen with your Valentine's date?
      Amy: What business is it of yours?

    • Fry: Then I have no choice but to do something so pitiful and embarrassing that I'm ashamed to tell you about it.
      Leela: Bender's in his office.
      Fry: Thanks.

    • Fry: This is an emergency. Amy made Valentine's plans with some goon and I'm gonna be stuck there, lonely and miserable. Will you be my date, please?
      Leela: You're too late, Fry. I'm sharing Valentine's Day with a very special man. He's not Zapp Brannigan or anything!

    • Bender: Are you familiar with my friend Al Gore? I'm tellin' you, losers get really desperate around Valentine's Day.

    • Fry: Hey, I can get a date too. Now that I'm single, I'll attract all sorts of women!
      Amy: With my body I think you might only attract one sort of woman.

    • Amy: You're breaking up with me?
      Fry: I just think we should start seeing other people.
      Amy: But, I was really having fun. If that's how you feel
      Fry: I'm sorry, but it is.
      Amy: Well, whatever. Hey, listen, as long as we're not seeing each other, you mind if I ask someone else out for Valentine's Day?

    • Zoidberg: Fry? Are you alright?
      Fry: Ow! My head is killing me. What happened? Was anybody hurt?
      Zoidberg: No, no, no, no, no, of course not. Nobody but you. I'm afraid your body was badly damaged in the crash.
      Fry: How badly?
      Zoidberg: That's it over there.

    • Fry: Amy, you know how at first you like chocolate but then you start to get tired of it because it always wants to hang out with you?
      Amy: Huh? You don't like chocolate?
      Fry: Look, could chocolate just let me finish?

    • Amy: So, ready for a secluded picnic with just you and me?
      Fry: Hey, you know who loves secluded picnics with just you and me? Uh, Dr. Zoidberg.
      Zoidberg: Did someone say something about a free hot meal?

    • Amy: So, Fry, you busy tomorrow? I got two tickets to the big ape fight.
      Fry: Jeez, we're already planning to spend Valentine's Day together. Isn't that enough?
      Amy: OK, sure. What do you wanna do for Valentine's Day?
      Fry: Oh, so all of a sudden we're spending Valentine's Day together?

    • Leela: I think you're over reacting.
      Fry: Am I? Am I? Face it, I'm a prize catch. [He belches.] I mean, I'm pulling down delivery boy money.
      Leela: Fry, she's pulling down billionaire trust-fund money.
      Fry: Then she wants me as a trophy husband.

    • Fry: I'm doing my job, there's Amy; I spend a few hours selecting a candy from the machine, there's Amy; I wake up the morning after sleeping with Amy, there's Amy!

    • Fry: Don't you get it? She's smothering me.
      Amy: Hi.
      Fry: You see? You see? Now she's bothering me when I'm at work.

    • Fry: Everything was going great. Then, all of a sudden, she's talking about hanging out. Hanging out? She's getting way too serious. I'm not a one woman man, Leela.
      Leela: You'll be back to zero soon enough.

    • Fry: Wow! We're great kissers!
      Amy: Yeah! Hey, later, you wanna drive out to Europa? We could have a picnic and spit watermelon seeds at Jupiter.
      Fry: Hey, yeah! I used to spit at stuff back in the 20th century.

    • Bender: OK, Mister...?
      Zapp: Uh, Smith! Zapp Smith. Uh, Brannigan.

    • Hermes: Fry! Amy! Put your pants back on! I need a stapler.
      Zoidberg: Stop! Stop! If you interrupt the mating dance the male will become enraged and maul us with his fearsome gonad.

    • Zoidberg: You're both very lucky. I'd pay anything to end my miserable loneliness. If only I weren't so desperately poor.
      Bender: Wait. You mean people will pay good money for romance? Hmm. I think I have a scheme so deviously clever that I-
      Scene cuts to Courtroom
      Judge: $500 and time served.
      Bender: Stupid anti-pimping laws!

    • Hermes: Well I think Amy and Fry go together like a lime and coconut.
      Farnsworth: Do I hear wedding bells?
      Fry: What? No!
      Farnsworth: Really? Oh, dear.

    • Leela: Bender! Romance isn't about money.
      Bender: Oh, so it's just coincidence that Zoidberg here is desperately poor and miserably lonely? Puh-lease!
      Leela: For your information, it's because he's hideous.

    • Bender: Congratulations, Fry, you snagged the perfect girlfriend. Amy's rich, she's probably got other characteristics.

    • Amy: We ran out of fuel on Mercury and one thing led to another.
      Fry: And it led there again when we got home.

    • Hermes: Which concludes the summary of the movie I saw last night. Now, any old business?
      All: No.
      Hermes: Any new business?
      All: No.
      Hermes:Anyone spend the night together?

    • Amy: You know, Fry, it's nice to find someone I can talk to about stuff, and junk.
      Fry: Yeah, it's like we feel the same way about junk and stuff, or, whatever.

    • Amy: It'll be a couple hours. Oh, I'm gonna get sweat on my sweat-suit.
      Fry: Hey, tell me something: You've got all this money, how come you always dress like you're doing your laundry?
      Amy: I guess 'cause my parents keep telling me to be more ladylike. As though!
      Fry: I've been there. My folks were always on me to groom myself and wear underpants. What am I, the Pope?

    • Amy: It's OK, I have an emergency phone.
      She picks up a make-up case and applies blusher to her cheeks.
      Fry: What are you doing?
      Amy: Spluh! It's a video-phone.

    • Amy: Hey, I'm taking my new car out for a spin to Mercury. Anybody wanna come?
      Fry: Yeah, OK. What's the weather like?
      Amy: The usual: Boiling lead, oceans of lava.
      Fry: So, what? Shorts?

    • Fry: Well, since neither of us has a date, why don't we...?
      Leela: You just assume I can't get a Valentine's date?
      Fry: Shall we say eight o'clock?

    • Leela: Hermes, who were you yelling at?
      Hermes: Myself. I asked myself a Valentine's Day off, but I was in no mood for any of my shenanigans.

    • Amy: Smeesh, Leela! This car has everything a beautiful woman like me needs. Victor said so.
      Victor: No dog food for Victor tonight.
      Leela: OK, the sticker says 55,000, but we'll only go as high as, say-
      Amy: 60,000!
      Victor: Oh, I will have to ask my manager.
      Leela: Amy, you don't go up from the sticker price.
      Amy: I thought it was an auction.
      Victor (comes back from manager): He is not too happy.
      Amy: I'm sorry. 80,000?

    • Bender: You, sir, have defaced a national treasure! I demand you restore my buttocks to their former glory.
      Mechanic: Alright. But sooner or later that ass is gonna blow, and when it does, I just pray you're not moonin' someone you care about.

    • Salesman: Spotted her the minute you walked in, didn't you, sir? She's a real beauty.
      Fry: Yup, she's beautiful coffee alright.
      Salesman: No, the Ford Thundercougarfalconbird! Nothing makes you feel more like a man than a Thundercougarfalconbird. So how much were you thinking of spending on this Thundercougarfalconbird?
      Fry: Sorry, I'm not here to buy.
      Salesman: I understand, and it's wonderful you don't care whether anyone questions your sexual orientation.
      Fry: I care! I care plenty! I just don't know how to make them stop!
      Salesman: One word: Thundercougarfalconbird!

    • Victor: Hello, I am Victor and I know many things about the art of unloading fine cars on beautiful women.
      Leela: Uh-huh. Now tell us she's witty and sophisticated.
      Victor: Ah-ah-ah! A gentleman always sells a lady a car first.

    • Bender: Mind if I tag along? I gotta bring my ass in for servicing. The recall notice says it could burst into flames in a low-speed collision.
      Fry: No wonder you've been staying at the back of conga lines lately.

    • Amy: Hey, let's go car shopping! My parents promised if I got all B's they'd buy me a bar, and I got all C's!

    • Lincoln: Four score and 1145 years ago our forefathers' foreheads conceived a new nation.
      Washington: And this Presidents' Day we honoureth those values that my body fought and died for.
      Malfunctioning Eddie: Values like this brand new Plymouth V'Ger! Hi, I'm Malfunctioning Eddie and I'm malfunctioning so badly I'm practically giving these cars away!

    • Leela: How much?
      Bender: $500
      Leela: OK
      Bender: Zapp Brannigan OK?
      Leela: No!
      Bender: $600

    • Fry: This AC is incredible, I better turn on the heater too. This heater is incredible, I better turn up the AC.

    • Amy (talking to Fry): When ever I get lonely, I can look over my shoulder at this disfiguring scar and think of you.

    • Victor: The seats are stuffed with eagle down, and the dashboard is made form the beaks of a thousand eagles. Also, there are some eagles under the floorboards
      Amy: That's an awful lot of eagle.
      Victor: Yes, and yet (sighs)
      Amy: What's wrong?
      Victor: It is just, the luxury edition has so much more eagle. It saddens me to think of you missing out.

    • Fry: Valentine's Days coming? Oh, crap. I forgot to get a girlfriend again.

    • Fry: You're using an awful lot of makeup there.
      Amy: This is deodorant.
      Fry: What does it do?

    • Bender: Ah, computer dating. It's a lot like pimping, only you don't have to use the phrase, 'Upside your head.'
      Leela: Bender, who would go to you for date advice?
      Bender: Don't make me go upside your head!

    • Hookerbot: Honey, we love you!
      Bender: Shut up baby, I know it!
