Storyline

Dream advertisements inspire Fry to go shopping, but he has insufficient funds. After visiting the bank, Fry finds out his bank account's interest has made him a billionaire. He goes on a spree, buying items that remind him of the 1990s. When discovers that he can't order anchovies on his pizza because of their extinction, he visits an auction that has them on the block. Fry outbids Mom, who believes he's going to use them to make extremely cheap robot oil. Using Pamela Anderson, she sets up a plot to trick him into unveiling his account password. They rob him blind, only to discover Fry intends on eating them. And he would have too, if it weren't for the appetite of Dr. Zoidberg. Written by Anonymous

Trivia

It's stated that Visa and Mastercard haven't existed for hundreds of years, and that the store "doesn't take Discover." While this is clearly a joke at Discover's expense (it's often not accepted at as many stores as the other major credit cards), it means Discover, surprisingly, still exists while the more popular Visa/Mastercard do not.

Predictable with wasted opportunities
12 September 2020 | by hunterandchristopherSee all my reviews

I tend to like most Futurama episodes but they could've done a much better plot for such a unique situation. Having Fry lose his fortune over a can of anchovies is just silly.
