Tate: Pitiful ballplayers of Earth, I am Ethan "Bubblegum" Tate, commander of the Harlem Globetrotters. For generations, your puny planet has lived in peace with the Globetrotter Homeworld. But now, for no reason, we challenge you to defend your honour on the basketball court. Will no one meet our challenge? Have none of you pathetic Earthlings game?
Fry: What happens if we lose?
Tate: Nothing. There's nothing at stake and no threat, beyond the shame of defeat!
Farnsworth: This will not stand! I'll take you on, you air-balling bozos.
