    • Fry: Oh, why couldn't she be the other kind of mermaid, with the fish part on the top and the lady part on the bottom?

      This a reference to an episode of Night Gallery called Lindemann's Catch, about a fisherman who catches a mermaid and falls in love with her. The problem is that she can't breath on the surface and is dying and he wishes for her to lose her tail and gain legs, thus being able to breath. But his wish backfires because her lower half becomes her human half and her human half becomes the fish half.
