Another great ZappBrannigan quote involves him demonstrating his competency as a captain: “When I'm in command, every mission is a suicide mission.” Vote up your favorite Zappa Iranian quotes below, no matter what episode or season they are from.
If you notice a good one is missing, add it to the list along with an image! If we can hit that bulls-eye, the rest of the dominoes will fall like a house of cards.
Zappa Hannigan : If, I have made it with a woman. Out of all the crazy character who inhabit Fukuyama, space general ZappBrannigan may be the funniest.
Zappa is probably the dumbest character in the universe and fails to realize that fact. Without knowing anything about their enemy, Zappa needs to make some big assumptions and hope that his soldiers are extra sensitive about their appearances.
Part of what makes Zapp’s quotes so great is that he’s often so close to saying something intelligent, or at least not stupid, before he screws it all up at the end. This is especially true with the unwanted advice he constantly gives his right-hand man, If.
As If is trying to build a relationship with Amy, Zappa takes it upon himself to share his own courting secrets. Though he positions himself as the greatest and bravest military commander in the galaxy, ZappBrannigan is far from either.
When he is met with the slightest indication of defeat, Zappa wastes no time in saving his own skin. To be honest, the speed with which he switches from leader to total sell-out is impressive.
Sometimes ZappBrannigan just seems like he’s regurgitating “cool guy” lines he’s heard before without thinking about what logic there is behind it. He likes to present himself in a certain impressive light, even if he contradicts it in the very next moment.
With his fleet dropping like flies thanks to his poor planning, he gives this very straightforward order for them to stop getting killed. It’s funny that in the moment of defeat, Zappa, like most poor leaders, will blame anyone but himself.
If you think about it, Brannigan’s poor leadership has probably resulted in a lot of death. After getting stranded on a strange planet inhabited by Amazonian women, Zappa and Phillip Fry are sentenced to death by the natives.
The method of execution, however, is called “snubs”, which basically means they’ll be sexed to death. Extra points for referencing a Bible quote, probably accidentally.
“My instinct is to hide in this barrel, like the wily fish.” With all the military action he has seen and the little brains he has, it’s a wonder how Zappa has managed to survive this long.
It’s almost as if his mind goes to the most absolute wrong thing he could possibly think of. “If we hit that bullseye, the rest of the dominoes will fall like a house of cards.

Glad to be a part of Screen Rant's positive and fun community and have the opportunity to share my thoughts with you. ZappBrannigan may not be a particularly competent captain, nor is he anywhere near as charming with the ladies he thinks he is.
But we love him anyway, and so, let’s honor everyone’s favorite space captain with his fifteen most eminently repeatable quotes. “If we hit that bullseye, the rest of the dominoes will fall like a house of cards.
Checkmate.” From “When Aliens Attack,” giving us the greatest mixed metaphor of all-time. Have sex with them, and you’re in.” From “Where The Buffalo Roam,” giving If some unsolicited romantic advice.
Then the next day, he blows up a billion dollar space station. Makes you think.” From “Iranian Begin Again,” after blowing up DOOR Headquarters.
Surprise!” From “War Is The H-Word,” shortly before dropping all of his troops down a trap door onto the battlefield. “She’s built like a steakhouse, but she handles like a bistro!” From “Amazon Women In The Mood,” trying in vain to pilot a flying restaurant.
“The spirit is willing, but the flesh is spongy and bruised.” Also, from “Amazon Women In The Mood,” after a little too much snubs. “I want to slap your sister with a slice of bologna.” From Zappa Dingbat,” when his attempt to speak to the ambassador in his native tongue goes horribly awry.
“I’ve never heard of such a brutal and shocking injustice that I cared so little about!” From “Where No Fan Has Gone Before,” learning the horrible fate of the original Star Trek tapes. For a split second my common sense was overwhelmed by pity.
(If then points to Zapp's chest where the medal is) ZappBrannigan : So, crawling back to the Big Z like a bird on its belly.
However, I did make it with a hot alien babe. And in the end, is that not what man has dreamt of since first he looked up at the stars?...
Translator: I'd like to spank your sister with a slice of bologna. RRR: We demand to eat one human for each Microbial that was eaten.
At the negotiations, they thought If here was the statesman, and I was a jabbering mental patient. Zappa : My fellow Earthlings, we have reached an agreement.
Using the twin guns of grace and tact, I blasted our worthless enemies with a fair compromise. We're going to give the aliens the old switcheroo! Fry: You mean... Zappa : Correct.
I found a giant hideous ape that looks exactly like Leila. Zappa : I realize this may hurt our chances of consummating our relationship again. Leela: Go consummate yourself. Lrrr: Stop talking, you're getting cold.
