That policy is not always followed, but it usually is.

For a long time, I thought that when the robot barged into the workshop in SANTA CLAUS CONQUERS THE MARTIANS that Joel or one of the bots said "Sarah Connor?" in an Austrian accent, but nope, it's not there. I mixed it up with a similar Terminator riff in TEENAGERS FROM OUTER SPACE.
Q: In many of the season eight episodes, when a character's hand was shown or focused on, Mike or one of the bots say "I thought you were Dale!" or some variation on that phrase. Who is Dale, and what is that a reference to?A: Actually, these references are all based on a mistake by Best Brains. Here's the whole story. Back in the 1970s, there was a series of commercials for Ivory dishwashing liquid, in which mothers were mistaken for their daughters--because the Mom used Ivory and so her hands were young-looking. At around the same time, there was also a commercial for Grape Nuts, in which a teenage boy mistakes teenage girl Dale's mother for Dale and utters the deathless line: "I thought you were Dale!" Best Brains only vaguely remembered these two commericials, and apparently mixed them up in their minds. There were apparently never any Ivory Liquid commercials in which a character said "I thought you were Dale!" And the Grape Nuts commercial in which that line was spoken had nothing to do with hands. So basically they goofed. But the writers thought they were making a reference to the Ivory Liquid commercials.

I think sometimes the reason he is shown flying is to establish that he CAN fly--so that, when there IS a joke dependent on this ability, it registers as being built on an accepted premise, and not a case of him suddenly being able to fly merely for the sake of that joke. Remember, not everyone is going to binge every episode in a short period, or even watch every episode; there should not be an assumption of "we showed him flying once in the first episode, that is all the establishment we need."The episode where this really pays off is LOVES OF HERCULES.
