Both of those fail against autistic people (and people who have diseases similar to autism, one example being FG syndrome). Greyson (talk) 17:49, 24 January 2014 (UTC)

Or, y'know, people who haven't seen the movie/episode. --Alex (talk) 21:09, 28 April 2014 (UTC)

Not exactly, because kids with autistic-spectrum disorders can be more sensitive. The only pop-culture example I can think of is Sheldon Cooper's sadness when he learned of Professor Proton's passing. (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

A better example would be the dog in I Am Legend. Also, the text for the question and for the answers would both have to be distorted slightly. 06:02, 11 September 2015 (UTC)

The obvious alusion is Deckard's empathy test on Leon in Blade Runner to determine whether he is . (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

 You know it was from Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep by Phillip K. Dick first, right? The movie was based on that. ----

I don't remember crying to that scene when I was younger. I do- I mean, did cry when Optimus Prime died in the '87 Transformers movie though. -Pennpenn 04:25, 26 January 2015 (UTC)

The funniest thing is the Infosphere does use Fry's dog as a captcha like this. Hutc (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

This seems to be an allusion to the Voight-Kampff test in the movie Blade Runner. The test is used to distinguish from 'Replicas' (artificial ) by asking questions designed to elicit an emotional response, and then monitoring biological metrics in the respondent. The idea being that replicas would be unable to maintain a convincing fakery against such a systematized methodology. Mountain Hikes (talk) 01:55, 25 September 2015 (UTC)

Am I the only one who didn't cry with that episode with Fry's dog? I mean it was sad but I didn't cry. On top of that one of the movies makes that scene a LOT less sad.

I suppose I'm just a cold, heartless satellite. Fry's dog may work on spambots but not satellites. International Space Station (talk) 15:35, 22 April 2016 (UTC)
