  • "The joke that Bender tells but never finishes (while crawling through the ceiling) actually has no punchline. According to Judd Nelson, he ad-libbed the line. Originally, he was supposed to tell a joke that would end when he came back into the library and said, "Forgot my pencil", but no one could come up with a joke for that punchline."

    i got that from

  • Yeah. It was supposed to ease into the line he says when he lands in the room,. but they couldn't figure a way to make that work, so Judd Nelson just ad libbed the lines up until then. I dug and dug to find this out about 3 or 4 years ago,. because my mother and I had to know.
