Storyline

Planet Express is hired to scoop a slab of ice from Halley's Comet and drop it in the ocean to combat global warming. But when they find the comet all out of ice, the inventor of the environment, Al Gore, holds a Global Warming convention. There Professor Farnsworth reluctantly admits the process was sped up by the pollution emissions of all robots. This leads President Nixon's head to invite all of Earth's robots to the Galapagos Islands for a big party (during which they will be destroyed). Written by The TV Archaeologist

Quotes

Leela: Bender, a turtle isn't yourself. Why do you care about it?
Bender: Because I also care deeply about things that remind me of myself, like poor little Shelly here.
Hermes Conrad: What could you possibly have in common with that walking soup mix?
Bender: For one thing, we both have a tough outer shell but live a rich inner life. And also... well, you know.
Leela: You're both alcoholic, whore-mongering, chain-smoking gamblers?
Bender: No, it's just... neither of us can get up when we get knocked on our back.
Fry: What? I've seen you get up off ...

The One With The Giant Heatwave...
20 October 2014 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I really loved this episode. It was so good. It's one of my favorite Futurama episodes of all time.

In this episode, Earth is suffering from a gigantic heat wave, due to Global Warming. Nice to know that it didn't kill the planet by the year 3000. Anyway, the Planet Express crew are hired to go to Halley's Comet and retrieve a giant ice block. This is how the planet has been combating Global Warming. They would get a giant cup, attached to a giant drill, the would be used like an ice dispenser. Then they would drop the ice cube into the ocean. But every time, the ice block had to be bigger. When the crew went to do this task, there was no ice on Halley's Comet. It had been completely sucked dry. Eventually, Al Gore holds a Global Warming convention. When there, Professor Farnsworth reluctantly tells the crowd that he sped up the process from the pollution from his robot emissions. Later, President Nixon's Head invites all of the worlds robots to the Galapagoes Islands for a big party. There, he planned to kill all of the robots. Instead, Bender and his robot pals used their emission gases to push them away from the Sun. I'm pretty sure that's one happened. They farted to do something like that.

Overall, I give this episode a 10 out of 10.
