Futurama: Anthology of Interest (1)

When Professor Farnsworth invents a "what if" machine, each member of the gang poses a question to this new machine to receive video-simulated answer. What if Bender was 500 feet tall, Leela was more impulsive and Fry never woke up in Y3K? In three separate stories, Bender, Leela and Fry each find out what would happen if their lives were different, and Vice President Al Gore, physicist Stephen Hawking and actress Nichelle Nichols join forces to help Fry.

Episode Quotes
Fry: What if Bender was a giant robot?
Leela: We've already seen that, moron!
Fry: I liked it... I wanted to see it again.

Bender: I came here with a sole purpose -- to destroy all mankind. And this is how it must end?!

Professor: The others are too impulsive. Unlike you, Leela. Good old, dull-as-dishwater Leela.

Professor: You've killed me! You've killed me!
Leela: Oh my God! What have I done?
Professor: I just told you! You've killed me!

Amy: Wow, great go-kart, Leela. So hip, and sexy. Not like you at all.

Zoidberg: (reading letter) Dear Zoidberg, if you're reading this, I'm already dead. The person who killed me was --
Fry: (yawns) I'm bored. You're boring, Zoidberg. I'm going to watch TV.

Fry: (to his horn) I should have left you floating in the toilet where I found you!

Pizza Manager: (while scratching his back with a pepperoni stick) Now, stop picking your nose, and knead that dough!
(Stephen Hawkings comes in)
Pizza Manager: Hey, why don't I make you the usual? A pepperoni pizza.

Fry: Are you Stephen Hawkings? That guy who invented gravity?
Stephen Hawkings: Sure, why not.

Fry: The universe was destroyed! Where are we?
Al Gore: I don't know, but I can darn-well tell you where we're not -- the universe!

Professor: That whole story was preposterous! Stephen Hawkings in a pizzeria?! This machine isn't worth the gold it's made from.
