  • Fry eats an egg salad sandwich from the gas station that has parasites and they go inside Fry so the Planet Express crew (except for Leela) shrink down and go inside Fry's body


    I thought that this was an excellent episode of "Futurama". It had a very good plot, everything in this episode was original and had some awesome action-packed scenes. I also loved the Fry/Leela relationship in this episode. Fry, Leela, and Bender go to the gas station to give their spaceship some gas. Fry goes uses the restroom and sees that you can get an egg-salad sandwich for 25 cents so he gets the egg salad sandwich from the gas station. Fry eats the egg salad sandwich that happens to have parasites inside the sandwich and the parasites go inside Fry's body. Professor Farnsworth tells the crew that they need to get rid of the parasites inside Fry's body so the Planet Express crew (except for Leela) go inside Fry's body while Leela needs to distract Fry so he doesn't know about the mission. Fry revealing his feelings for Leela was really good. Fry wondering if it's him that does the romance on his own or the parasites so Fry goes inside his own body to tell the parasites to leave his body. Fry is back to his not-so-romantic self again with Leela making Fry leave her apartment. There were some very funny parts in this episode. Hermes' line "He could be smarter than Cher" was hilarious. Bender's part throughout this entire episode was hilarious especially with his running line "Abandon Ship". Although, I kinda didn't like the ending because Fry lost Leela. Overall, an excellent episode of "Futurama" with a kinda crappy ending. 10/10
