Goofs

Slurms McKenzie didn't really need to stay and "party" to trap the worm queen in the corridor, since his radio did most (if not all) of the work. But he made it clear that he wanted to stay. Apparently, after realizing that he couldn't escape the parties even on Earth, he didn't want to live anymore. Besides, the entire cave-in scene is humorously ridiculous on purpose (much like most of the series). See more »

Quotes

[Discussion of the mysterious Slurm Cola]
Leela: This all must have something to do with the secret ingredient.
Fry: My God, what if the secret ingredient is people?
Leela: No, there's already a soda like that - Soylent Cola.
Fry: Oh. How is it?
Leela: It varies from person to person.

Fry has become addicted to the 31st centuries most popular soft drink; Slurm and when he hears that one can contains the 'golden bottle top' whose finder will win a trip to the planet Wormulon and get to party with the famous Slurms McKenzie he is determined that that winner will be him! He sets off with Bender and the professor's new F-Ray device to search every can but has no luck… until he gets back and helps himself to a can from the fridge and chokes on the cap. The Planet Express crew then head for Wormulon where they go on a tour of the Slurm factory and accidentally learns its revolting secret; a secret the worms will kill to protect.

This episode was clearly meant as a spoof of 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory'; right down to the strange orange Grunka-Lunkas who appeared to make the Slurm. There were plenty of laughs to me had through out; particularly funny were Fry's reaction to being exposed to the F-ray and his continuing to drink Slurm even after he's learnt its shocking secret. One or two jokes fell flat such as the doors labelled 'Real Factory' and 'Fake Factory' although the good jokes far exceeded the weak ones so that can be excused. This was a good conclusion to the first DVD season; having enjoyed this season I look forward to watching the second.
