Goofs

The term parasite refers to a life-form that harms another life-form in order to survive. Technically, since the worms thrived inside Fry and improved his biologic functions to the point where he was much more intelligent and much stronger, they would not be parasites, but, rather, symbiotic with Fry.

The One With Fry's Parasites...
19 January 2016 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I honestly love this episode. It's one of my all-time favorite episodes from this season, and the entire series. It's just so good, and is such a smart concept for an episode of Futurama.

In this episode, at a gas station in a galaxy far, far away (sorry, I'm on a Star Wars kick), anyway, Fry eats a really old egg-salad sandwich, and eventually starts acting strange. He's smarter, stronger and more reliable, that kind of thing. It turns out that he got parasites from the sandwich, and those parasites are making him the kind of man Leela likes. After everyone discovers the parasites, Dr. Farnsworth, and his crew, shrink down, and go inside Fry's body to destroy the gross wormy things once, and for all. But will Fry allow this to happen?

Title Card: If not entertaining, write your congressman.

Best part of the episode: Every.

Overall, I give this episode a 10 out of 10, which in my ratings book is: Freaking Ridonkulous.
