Futurama, the second most popular animated hit show from creator Matt Groening (behind The Simpsons), ran for seven hilarious seasons from 1999 to 2013. It told the story about a pizza delivery boy named Phillip J. Fry, who unexpectedly finds himself in the future. His only descendant, Professor Farnsworth, runs a cargo shipping service, which Fry joins. There, he meets alcoholic robot Bender, strong-willed ship captain Leela, and the rest of the zany crew. Of course, there are always shenanigans.
If you were to say that Futurama is one of the funniest animated shows of all time, you'd probably have a hard time finding someone who disagreed with you completely. You could probably spend hours scouring the show for hidden details or Easter eggs. For now, we'll leave you with some of the funniest quotes to laugh at.
10 "I'm So Embarrassed. I Wish Everybody Else Was Dead."
Bender is selfish, so it's natural for him to say something like this. In fact, his selfishness is part of the reason he is arguably the show's most beloved character. In this situation, even though he is the one who did something embarrassing, it's everyone else who should be dead so they don't have to see him. As if he knows that he does so many dumb things, the general public should just stop looking at him. He shouldn't have to clean up his act.
9 "Valentine's Day Is Coming? Oh Crap - I Forgot To Get A Girlfriend Again."
This is a great Fry quote. Despite his on-again, off-again relationship with Leela, Fry is not really successful with the ladies. He's not really what you would call a catch, or smooth. At all.
You can use this excuse for yourself the next time Valentine's Day comes around and you're still single.
8 "Fry, It's Been Years Since Medical School, So Remind Me. Disemboweling In Your Species: Fatal Or Non-Fatal?"
Dr. Zoidberg is not the first person you'd trust to be operating on you. Especially if he has to ask if disembowelling someone will kill them. In fact, now we're left wondering what species exists in this world that could survive being disembowelled. But that's one of the main reasons why his character is so funny. He just scares everyone and acts like a lunatic, but somehow he's a doctor.
7 "Well, You Obviously Won't Listen To Reason. So, I Guess I'll Listen To Idiotic-Ness And Come With You."
This quote, spoken by Leela, emphasizes the fact that she must be so frustrated being constantly surrounded by idiots. While it is hilarious, this Leela quote is also pretty representative of her personality.
She's the person who will try to talk you out of doing something really stupid, but if you insist on doing it anyway, she'll go with you to make sure you stay safe.
6 "Now, Now. There Will Be Plenty Of Time To Discuss Your Objections When And If You Return."
Professor Farnsworth isn't really known for taking peoples' feelings, emotions, or even lives into consideration. Especially when it comes to his experiments or his job. He's focused on getting things from point A to point B and doesn't really seem phased when his staff's lives are at danger. But that's just who he is.
5 "Finally, A Uniform I'd Be Happy To Be Caught Dead In!"
This funny quote is brought to you by Amy Wong. Now, most people have said, "I wouldn't be caught dead in that outfit" at least once or twice in their life. But no one ever really says the opposite.
Given the workplace hazards of Amy's job, though, it's understandable that she would utter this phrase at some point or another.
4 "If You Ask Me, It's Mighty Suspicious. I'm Gonna Call The Police. Right After I Flush Some Things."
It's pretty well known that Hermes enjoys his marijuana. That's part of many of the running jokes with his character. Everyone knows that he enjoys this habit, but he's constantly trying to hide it in a hilariously obvious way. This particular quote emphasizes that. Hermes has a lot of really funny signature catchphrases, like adding "sweet" before an animal or object, but he always manages to say some pretty hilarious one-liners as well. Especially when it comes to hiding his marijuana habits.
3 "I Got Your Distress Call And Came Here As Soon As I Wanted To."
Zap Brannigan doesn't really care about anyone else. It's his selfishness that makes him funny. The fact that he would come and help someone in an emergency situation only when he feels like doing so indicates he doesn't actually care about that particular person's situation. He just likes the idea of being a hero when it's convenient for him. It's also pretty funny that he doesn't even care enough to worry about admitting this.
2 "Did Everything Just Taste Purple For A Second?"
This Fry quote is hilarious because it simply doesn't make any sense. How does anything taste like a color? What would the color purple possibly taste like? We could associate it with grape, but it's clear that he means the color specifically. Of course, Fry's character is hilarious because some of the things he says are so stupid they just don't make any sense. It may frustrate his coworkers, especially Leela, but it sure makes the audience laugh.
1 "My Story Is A Lot Like Yours, Only More Interesting 'Cause It Involves Robots."
This is obviously another Bender quote. But he's not really wrong. Any story that involves robots is probably going to be more awesome simply because robots are awesome. It's Bender's style to also be straight up rude to people and shut them down for his own enjoyment. To be honest, a story about Bender, in general, is probably interesting simply because of the shenanigans he gets himself into.
