    • Bender Says "Another classic science fiction show canceled before its time", can be a reference to the short-lived Roswell. Also when Fry takes Leonard Nimoy's head off the shelf, he is replaced by Jonathan Frakes, who is not only from Star Trek: TNG, he was also the executive producer of "Roswell"

      Additionally, this could be a reference to Futurama itself because by the time this episode was made they had a pretty good idea they weren't going to be renewed for another season. It was shown as the last episode of the 3rd televised season but it was made to be shown in the middle of the 4th and (at the time) last production season.
