  • Trivia

    • Back in season 2 episode "A Clone Of My Own" The Professor stated that he had worked on a time machine for 15 years but was unsuccessful.

    • Near the end of the episode, as the trio travels into the year 3010, we see moments from several old episodes:
      "Space Pilot 3000" - the destruction of New York City and the medieval reconstruction from when Fry was frozen.
      "Love's Labours Lost in Space" - the Professor showing a hologram of Vergon 6.
      "Amazon Women in the Mood" - Amy, Leela, Zapp and Kif discussing their upcoming double date.
      "Future Stock" - Fry and That Guy waking the crew for a meeting.
      "A Taste of Freedom" - Fry and Zoidberg dancing the Freedom dance.
      "The Beast with a Billion Backs" - the Professor having been infested by Yivo, scaring Leela, Amy, Hermes and Wernstrom (who is coloured differently from the previous universe).
      "Attack of the Killer App" - Fry, Hermes, Bender, Zoidberg and Amy playing with their eyePhones, and Leela crashing the ship.

    • The concept of time being cyclical was previously mentioned in "The Cryonic Woman" by the man who wanted to meet Shakespeare. Interestingly, in that episode Fry stated with confidence that it wasn't, but here it's proven that it is.

    • This episode reveals that Leela's birthday is on the 29th July, according to the time machine's display when Fry, Bender, and the Professor enter the machine for the first time.

  • Quotes

    • (Farnsworth's attempt at killing Hitler inside the time machine)
      Farnsworth: Just slow it down! I'll shoot Hitler out the window (Fires laser gun out of window)
      Farnsworth: Darn! I hit Eleanor Roosevelt by mistake!

    • "In The Year 252525" song lyrics:

      In the year one-oh-five-one-oh-five,
      If man is still alive,
      If robot can survive,
      They may find...

      In the year twenty-five-twenty-five-twenty-five,
      The backwards time machine still won't have arrived.
      In all the world, there's only one technology,
      A rusty sword for practicing proctology!

      In a future year that ends with a twenty,
      A shlubby merman's gonna try to get chummy.
      He may look like a watery wimp,
      When in fact he's a bloodthirsty shrimp!

      In the year one million and a half,
      Humankind is enslaved by giraffe.
      Man must pay for all his misdeeds,
      When the treetops are stripped of their leaves!
