This episode was ridiculously hilarious...
30 August 2006 | by (Nowhere, Joke-lahoma) – See all my reviews

...especially when Barker's head (voiced by Bob Barker himself) asked the crew of Planet Express (who had lost the priceless tiara)if they knew how much the priceless tiara was actually worth. After all had guessed, he informed (I believe it was Bender) he was closest without going over. I rather enjoyed the spoof on the Price is Right...as well as Barker nearly going "mobster" on them for having lost it. This episode is also the premier appearance of Flexo, Bender's long lost "brother"...y'know...the one with the go tee. Bender frames him for the theft of the "Jumbonium" tiara, and he disappears for awhile. He reappears in later episodes, one of which in the form of competition for a love interest.
