Between those episodes Fry had Brain worms from episode 34 "Parasites Lost" they repaired many things in Fry. It makes sense that they repaired that problem as well as many others for him.

From wikipedia: A running joke for the episode involves a key plot point in each segment being obscured by the specific animation style, though the characters themselves express amazement over what they see This enforces your idea of the three parts having important information ...
