    Fry's First Veto

    President Fry has been in office for ten weeks. His party, the Tastycratic Party,is in the majority. He has been having frequent meetings with his Cabinet and his First Lady, Leela. The House of Representatives writes a bill funding medical research. The Senate writes a similar version a few days later. Because Fry nearly lost his life by being impaled on a space bee stinger, he threatens to veto the bill if it should pass the Senate with an amendment funding space bee research. The bill passes the House with a majority insufficient to override Mr. Fry's veto; it contains the objectionable amendment. The bill makes it to the Senate. After four days of debate, the Senators vote to invoke cloture. The bill passes by 65%. It reaches the President's desk. Fry delivers on his promise and vetoes the bill. He sends it back to the House of Representatives shortly after receiving it. He sends a written statement of objections; one of these is that the President would prefer not to spend money on a potential suicide mission. This shows that Fry is determined to stand up to an intransigent minority.

    Terrorist Attack on Earth

    It is September 11, 3013. It is a bright, sunny day in New New York. However, tragedy will occur soon. At 8:46 A.M., a rocket ship slams into one of the twin towers of the World Trade Center. The public assumes that this is an accident. Nearly 17 minutes later, a second ship hits the other tower. The people become suspicious. News of the strikes reach President Fry, who then tells Earthlings that the planet is under attack. News reports will run all day. At 9:37 A.M., a rocket ship slams into the Pentagon. Several of Fry's Cabinet members inform him about the hijackings. The Second Tower of the World Trade Center collapses at 10:00. Fifteen minutes later, a fourth rocket ship strikes the Empire State Building. The First Tower of the World Trade Center falls 20 minutes after the Empire State Building assault. Mr. Fry holds an emergency Cabinet meeting to discuss what will be done in the wake of the attacks.

    Leela's Affair

    It is a bright, sunny day in Washington. President Fry is holding a meeting with his Cabinet about the issues of the day. Shortly afterward, he goes down to the West Wing and notices that Leela appears to be pregnant. The commander-in-chief is suspicious and orders a pregnancy test (the test returns with a positive result). Because the result of the test is positive, Fry orders a DNA test to identify the father. He becomes irate when he hears that Secretary of Defense Zapp Brannigan is the father. After a series of tests, it is revealed that Zapp had sex with Leela. Because of this, Fry orders the First Lady to have an abortion. DNA analysis confirms that Defense Secretary Brannigan isalleged to bethe rapist. Under oath, Zapp Brannigan admits that he had consensual sex with Leela. Fry is relieved to hear that.

    Parasites Regained

    Fry eats an egg salad sandwich at a truck stop. Bender slits Fry's arm. Seconds later, the wound heals itself. Leela and the rest of the crew are shocked. The Professor runs tests and confirms that Fry has reinfested himself with the same microscopic worms that enabled him to survive being impaled by a lead pipe. The worms confer extra benefits: Fry is invulnerable to both poison and disease and also becomes highly intelligent. The Professor produces a microscopic robot version of Fry. This robot enters the real Fry and congratulates the parasites for protecting his life. Fry can easily play the holophonor; Leela greatly appreciates this. Fry decides that the worms can stay if they can agree not to sicken him. The worms agree to help Fry. Fry appreciates this and lets them remain in his body.

    Look at Post #14 for the answer to the first question. Politics can also be a source of cheap laughs.

    Having Fry as a politician can be a source of cheap laughs.

    Another Day, Another Veto

    Philip J. Fry, President of Earth, holds his daily Cabinet meeting to discuss daily affairs. This meeting is special because the time is nearing to draw up a budget for Earth. Shortly afterward, Mr. Fry warns Congress that he will veto any budget funding a trip to the colony of vicious and lethal space bees if it reaches his desk. The House drafts a budget that includes funding for the potentially deadly expedition. It passes overwhelmingly. The Senate version excludes funding for the journey. Both houses reconcile the bill and include the provision that permits the use of tax dollars to pay for a potential suicide mission. The inclusion displeases Fry, who then vetoes the budget. Immediately afterward, Congress gets to work on a budget that Fry can sign. It excludes the space-bee provision.

    Fry, Bender, Hermes, Doctor Zoidberg, Amy, Leela, and Professor Farnsworth are watching All My Circuits. Ten minutes into the show, Fry gets and idea. He wants to become a politician because he feels that the planet needs fresh new blood in the White House. Despite his inexperience, Fry decides to run for the Presidency as a Democrat.

On Election Day 3008, Fry wins the election in a massive landslide. The Planet Express crew congratulate Fry on his successful election campaign. Professor Farnsworth begins to look for replacement workers. On January 20, 3009,Fry takes the oath of office and becomes President of Earth. Philip J. Fry needs to appoint Cabinet members and set forth his agenda for the first 100 days in office. Zapp Brannigan is appointed Secretary of Defense and is quickly confirmed by the Senate. For Secretary of the Treasury,the commander-in-chiefnominates Hermes Conrad. The Senate confirms Hermes. He is sworn into office.

    that would make a great episode, but Fry is always to be a loser.

    Zoidbergstien

    Zoidberg is undergoing serious health problems because he has not mated. The reason that other Decapodians are able to live despite not having mated is because they have undergone a process to remove excess jelly. the only way to save Zoidberg's life is to remove the jelly, but it is not that easy, since the process takes several days, and he has only a few hours to live. so the crew pack up, take Zoidberg to Decapod 10 where they can keep him on life support long enough to remove the jelly. In case you're wondering, the jelly is from the episode where he tries to mate. The doctorson the other planet state that Zoidberg is a rare case, a person whose jelly is so builtup, it has fused to his innards. The only way to save him is to use an experimental procedure where tailored genes can be infused into him long enough to break the bonds of the jelly. The procedure goes, zoidberg lives, and everyone is happy, except for Bender, who is mad because he had a lobster recipre he wanted to try out.

    However, on the trip back, Bender makes a joke about Zoidberg, and Zoidberg attacks him, cutting a hole in Bender's ass, after bender says "Kick my unkickable metal ass!". After that, Zoidberg begins acting unusual, like fighting off an entire street gang, starting to turn green, and growing retractable tentacles and various other appedages. The Professor tests zoidberg and determines that the process the saved Zoidberg's life has caused him to start mutating into a more violent, destructive beast. They try to take him back to Decapod 10, but he is kidnapped by Mom, who thinks she can create an army based off this guy. Soon, different people want to use zoidberg for their own purposes, and as everyone at a debate yell over who should get Zoidberg, zoidy collapses, and is taken to a facility run by Mom. Professor decides to test giving superpowers on subjects (i.e., his crew) to win the Mad Scientist of the Year Award. Just then, the building is rumbled by an explosion at Mom's off-shore facility. Bender utters "Oh, your god". Fry yells "Zoidberg!". To be continued, it says.

    The Incredible Zoidberg

    Mom's off-shore facility. several guards are talking about what they are going to do on Friday, when an explosion rocks the building. The guards run to check it out, only to decimated by a weird creature. The only surviving guard takes a look at the monster: a tall, green humanoid which junps into the water after destroying the place.

    Meanwhile, back at Planet Express, the crew are all given superpowers, as so:

    Leela, superstrength and night/x-raythermal vision, can run on walls

    Fry, the ability to transform into anything he thinks of, including just himself w/ powers

    Bender, can create objects from inside his compartment, including devices or mods to give him powers

    Hermes, superspeed and a "bureaucracy ray", incredible flexibility

    Amy, mind control, pheromone control, and flight

    Cubert, superintelligence and psychokinetic powers

    Professor, the perfect body, and an exosuit

    Nibbler is the team mascot

    At the office, they have finished their training when the explosion occurs. The team goes to investigate, only to find survivors who cannot give a clear picture and Wernstrom, who also made a team, including a guy who can explode, a cat person, a pyrokinetic, and a guy made of scorpions. before any work can be done, a second explosion takes place in New New York City. the teams rush there, but wernstrom's team get there first and are quickly defeated. the crew arrives to see the monster: A hulking, 8-foot tall, green Zoidberg who steals the pants off a member of the other team who was incredibly fat. the zoidberg beast does not recognize his crewmates, which leads to a spectacular battle throughout the city. Zoidberg now has retractable appendages, powers of the Hulk, and can spray acid, venom and toxins of various animals, and inks with different effects, like stinging pain or blindness. Zoidberg is brought down, but only after defeating the team, going on a huge rampage through the city, and the development of a temporary antidote. He is taken back to Planet Express, being held in a chamber the professor designed for "No reason, no reason." But the city is now in chaos, and people are going nuts. Meanwhile, Mom is spying on zoidberg...

    Z for Zoidetta

    Zoidberg is being held in Planet Express, while people are rioting in the streets over the chaos zoidberg created. The team try to keep order, but are stopped by the cops, who have been placed under mind control by Mom. they demand to see the suspect, and when they do, they place a bug on him. The bug is able to trigger Zoidy's transformation, which Mom has control of. she wants zoidberg, to find out his secrets, in order to create a whole army to make her supreme ruler of earth. She presses the trigger, but instead of her plan to use the bug to control him, he goes out of control, and goes on another rampage, where he can remember Mom and the faces at the "auction", and proceeds to destroy them all or send them to the hospital. He goes after mom, but is stopped when she gives him the antidote, and he flees.

    After the rioters settle down and go home, the team try to find Zoidberg, who has fled underground to the ruins of Old New York. With some help from the mutants, they find him in an old subway station. Unfortunately, Mom has found him as well, and a whole army of hers has followed him down. A fight breaks out between the sides until zoidberg steps in, and sends the survivors fleeing. the crew spend the night underground, looking around fry's old neighborhood, and learning much about zoidberg's history. the next morning, One of Mom's commanders and some of his men who survived Zoidberg are back, but Zoidberg tells the others to stand back and run to a safe observation area. He then transforms under his own power, takes out the soldiers, and revertsback. just then, Mom comes to try and take him down in a giant robot suit. He destroys it, and Mom, defeated, wonders if she should stop hiring mercenaries and get her own army, to which fry says "Do you have an off switch or something?" mom leaves, and the gang celebrate by cooking with Bender's "essence of pure flavor". After that, they watch TV, while Mom watches them on a monitor, until her oldest son says Zoidberg was granted superpowers in an operation to remove excess jelly. After ther, Mom loses interest in Zoidberg, and decides to genetically engineer werewolves. zoidberg keeps his powers and the rest find a way to store theirs.

    The political episodes could be regarded as sequels to "Parasites Regained".

    That would work, although the seriousness of the episodes could be toned down, since Zapp Brannigan probably believes he does not have to do anything to get what he wants like that. Just needed to be said.

    Orgy in the White House

    Leela and Amy invite Vice President Bender and Defense Secretary Zapp Brannigan to have a party in the Green Room. Interior Secretary Hubert Farnsworth and Treasury Secretary Hermes Conrad join in on the action. At the party, the participants drink Champagne, tell jokes, play loud music, and engage in various lewd sex acts. Eventually, President Fry enters the Green Room and notices that the First Lady, the White House intern, and three Cabinet members are drunk. This prompts the commander-in-chief to inquire into this. Leela admits that she invited these individuals over in order to have some fun. Fry is satisfied with the explanation; however, he states that orgies are to be held outside the White House from this point onward.
