“There is a little secret towards the end of the movie, a very subtle visual, I don’t want to give anything away, but it harkens back to something we did in the pilot. There was a real subtle secret thing that we stuck in the pilot that a lot of fans noticed and we’ve kind of done a related thing here at the end of this movie.” 

The plot of “Green Yonder” climaxes at the public demolition of a violet dwarf star. Leo Wong (Billy West) intends to demolish 12% of the Milky Way to make room for a galactic golf course. Distressingly, the demolition will destroy a nearby asteroid that has mysteriously become the host of a brand new incredible biome. Fry (West) was secretly trying to prevent the demolition, but may actually be the one to press the TNT plunger and destroy the asteroid himself. The crowd begins to count down from 10, and Fry panics, hoping to psychically locate a mysterious supervillain before time runs out. (Oh yeah, Fry has mind-reading powers now.) 

The final countdown, it seems, was a bookend for the opening scenes of “Space Pilot 3000.” In the pilot, Fry was delivering a pizza to a cryogenics lab just minutes before the New Year’s Eve countdown to the year 2000. People from around the world are all seen gleefully counting down to the new millennium. When the countdown reaches zero, Fry falls into a cryogenics tube and is flash-frozen. He is thawed on New Year’s Eve 2999, setting up the premise of the series.
