- "Robot House!"
- ―Dean Vernon[source]
The stressful job has not been easy on Vernon since he took the job in 2993, but he has been able to retain his sanity with his hobby of building a model ship, which was accidentally eaten by Fatbot after Robot House was placed on dodecatuple secret probation in 3001.
At some point he crashed his Hovercar, evidently damaging property and/or people, but was able to avoid charges by claiming that his horse was driving, although his colleague Professor Hubert J. Farnsworth knew the truth.
Vernon went on a date with Turanga Leela, however, after that, he never called back.
- Dean Vernon is a tribute to the character Dean Vernon Wormer from the film "Animal House". The whole episode in which Vernon appears in is also a parody of said film.
- Dean Vernon is a reference to Richard Vernon, the mean principal from "The Breakfast Club".
