Why are things so heavy in the future?
Is there a problem with the Earth's gravity?
The only way we're going to
get them to mate is if they're alone.
You've got to get them to interact...
...in some sort of social....
-You mean like a date?
What kind of date?
What do kids do in the '50s?
They're your parents.
You must know them.
What are their common interests?
What do they like to do together?

Piece of cake.
Look, you wanna compare brain pans?
I won the Westinghouse prize
when I was 12. Big deal.
Published at 19. So what? I got
a double doctorate from M.I.T. at 22.
Chemistry and geology. I taught
at Princeton for two-and-a-half years.
You know, I think this might be
the most uncomfortable room
I've ever been in in my life.
Why do I do this? Because
the money's good, the scenery changes,
and they let me use explosives, okay?
Okay, you wanna be
all psychological with me, that's fine.
I'll tell you one thing
that really drives me nuts...
is people who think Jethro Tull
is just a person in the band.
Who is Jethro Tull?
My favourite dish is haggis.
Heart, lungs, liver.
You shove that all
in a sheep's stomach, then you boil it.
That'll put some hair on your ass.

Homer goes to Hullabalooza, a rock concert featuring freakish sideshow acts, where he displays his special talent: catching a cannonball with his belly.
Left alone, it's time for Homer to get in touch with the young people. He tries to blend in the crowd, but his Jamaican-rastafarian hat gets in the way.
Homer: Good concert, am I right?
Teen1: Yeah, nice try, narc.
Teen2: Where's a narc?
Teen1: That fat Jamaican guy.
Homer: What did I say? What's going on?
Teen4: Hey, we're just trying to have a good time, narc. Why do you want to destroy us?
Teen5: Don't commit your hate crimes here. [yelling] HATE CRIME!
-- All I did was say "Gimme four more justices", "Homerpalooza"
Thus Homer finds himself on the top of the crowd, being led outside.
Meanwhile, Bart and Lisa are at the concert listening to Smashing Pumpkins, where the crowd is dancing in sort sort of nostalgic trance.
Lisa: It may be bleak, but this music is really getting to the crowd.
Bart: Eh, making teenagers depressed is like shooting fish in a barrel.
Homer walks away, disillusioned as always.
Oh... Makes no sense. I haven't changed since high school and suddenly I'm uncool.
-- Hand Homer a mirror, "Homerpalooza"
In his rage, Homer kicks a cannon, which goes haywire. After several bursts, it shoots its bullet right into Homer's stomach. After
bouncing off and falling on the ground, the bullet breaks open, revealing an inflatable pig, which soars in the sky.
Tech: Aw, man. There goes Peter Frampton's big finale. He's gonna be pissed off.
Frampton: You're damn right I'm going to be pissed off; I bought that pig at Pink Floyd's yard sale!
-- Oink oink, "Homerpalooza"
But the crowd is more impressed with Homer's ability to withstand such a blow without any side effects. Even a manager is impressed:
Sir, I run Hullabalooza's pageant of the transmundane --the freak show, and I've been looking for a big fatso to shoot with a cannon. I'd like very much for you to be that fatso.
-- Hullabalooza's manager wants to hire Homer, "Homerpalooza"
The Day the Earth Stood Stupid
Airdate February 18, 2001
"The Day the Earth Stood Stupid" is the seventh episode in season three of Futurama. It originally aired in North America on February 18, 2001.
The episode begins with Tweenis 12, one day's brain flight from Earth, collapsing due to an attack by giant brains.
Meanwhile, there is a pet show on Earth. After hearing that the top prize was $500 and dog food, Bender and Zoidberg plan to enter to win. Leela and Nibbler also enter. After a series of tests, the Hypnotoad wins by hypnotizing the judges. Nibbler is crowned the "dumbest pet in show" while Bender and Zoidberg the "whooping terrier" win second prize, much to Bender's disappointment.
Later the Planet Express staff discovers an ominous trend of destroyed planets leading toward Earth, Nibbler begins gibbering excitedly and runs away. Tracking Nibbler to an alley, Leela is attacked by giant floating brains. Leela is rescued by Nibbler, who has donned a uniform and is piloting a tiny flying saucer. Nibbler and Leela leave New New York and fly away from Earth.
The next day, Fry discovers that all the citizens of New New York have been rendered stupid, except himself. Meanwhile, Nibbler begins communicating to Leela telepathically, and they travel to the planet Eternium, at the exact center of the universe. There, in the Hall of Forever (10 miles west of the exact center of the universe), the Nibblonian council tells Leela of the threat of the Brainspawn, the giant brains that have invaded Earth and are attempting to wipe out all thought in the universe. While the Nibblonians have been fighting them for billions of years—since the beginning of the universe—they are powerless against the Brainspawns' powers of stupidity; in fact, Fry is the only being in the universe immune to the Brainspawn's mental attack, and is the only one capable of combating them.
Leela arrives on Earth to tell Fry of his mission, and retains just enough intelligence to remember what it is. In a successful leap of logic, Fry seeks the leader of the brains at the New New York Public Library. There Fry discovers that thinking hurts the brains, but the brain leader traps Fry and Leela in a mental realm based on Moby-Dick. Fry and Leela pursue the giant brain through The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, and into Pride and Prejudice. Fry breaks free of the illusion, and attempts to attack the giant brain. Fry's efforts result in him being crushed by a bookcase, but this is then revealed to be an illusion based on a story Fry has quickly written, one riddled with "plot holes and spelling errors". In accordance with the story the giant brain leaves Earth (for no "raisin"), and the people of Earth regain their intelligence. Unfortunately for Fry, no one remembers the events of the brain invasion. Nibbler returns to his undercover position observing Earth.

Saratoga communications officer: No response, sir. And the T.D.R.S. system confirms our signal has been received.
Lt. Colonel McQueen: Have it pinpoint the location of the signal reception.
Saratoga communications officer: The linking tracking satellite was taken out in the firefight.
Lt. Colonel McQueen: So what you're saying is they can hear us, but we can't hear them.
Saratoga communications officer: Sir, just because a signal is being received doesn't mean there's anyone around to receive it.
Lt. Colonel McQueen: They're out there. I can feel them.
Lt. Colonel McQueen[ radio communication ]: We believe your radio to be in receive-only mode. We're presently conducting search and rescue operations in the Procyon System. I know you're out there. Hold on. Don't lose faith.
1LT Paul Wang: We're not in the Procyon System. We're far from it. We got knocked out in the firefight.
