  • While trying to scab a millitary discount for gum, fry and bender are sent off to war, their opponents being balls and their leader Zapp Brannigan they must fight.

    I love this episode, it is one of my favourites for this show. Bender and Fry want to buy gum but are outraged to find that they only get a millitary discount if they are actually in the millitary. This being done they join the millitary on the basis that they can quit whenever they want. The catch is they cant quit if 'war were declared' and as soon as they sign up 'war were declared' So they are sent off to war. There is a lot of humour in this episode, and the guns they use are great. We see benders list of most used words with daffodil being second which for bender is very unexpected and also brannigan's scheemes which of course will always ensure that at least one of his men dies. Great one.
