Futurama: A Fishful of Dollars

Bender gets arrested for trying to steal cans of robot oil, and Fry has to bail him out. Short on cash, he visits the bank, curious if his account is still open. Not only is it still open, but his balance has reached the amount of $4.3 billion. After much celebration, Fry treats his friends to pizza, but he's awestruck to discover that anchovies, his favorite topping, have gone extinct. He tries to win the last can in existence at an auction. However, Mom, the most powerful person in the world, bids against him. She will do anything to get those anchovies, for they're worth much more than Fry realizes.

Episode Quotes
Fry: Uhm, I've missed a few lectures. What subject is this?
Teacher: Ancient Egyptian Algebra!
Fry: Ah, what a nightmare!
Teacher: Mr. Fry, are those your underpants?!

Mom: Toodle-oo! (under her breath) Dumbass.

Fry: $30? I can't afford that. Unless... Do you take Visa?
Salesman: Visa hasn't existed for 500 years.
Fry: American Express?
Salesman: 600 years.
Fry: Discover card?
Salesman: Mm, sorry, we don't take Discover.

Leela: I know Fry's rich, but do we really have to wear these top hats?
Bender: Maybe you don't understand just how rich he is. In fact, I think I'd better put on a monocle.

Auctioneer: Sold!
Fry: Yes!
Leela: I just don't get it. Who was this Ted Danson, and why would you pay $10,000 for his skeleton?
Fry: I have an idea for a sitcom.

Fry: (bidding) One jillion dollars!
(Everyone gasps)
Auctioneer: Sir, that's not a number.
(Everyone gasps again)

Fry: (to Mom) I've discovered something even more important than money: my friends. And they aren't worth even a penny to me.
