Yes, 10!

Well done, Cubonius.

You decapitated the unicorn.


-All right.

Oh, oh!

We search his tail pouch for treasure.

Deep in the unicorn's rump sack, you find.


60 gold pieces

and a mysterious scrap of cloth bearing

the unmistakable stench of dwarf urine.

The same stench

that was on the bed linens at the inn?

-The very same.

-Oh, my God. Oh, my God.

I cast a spell of detect magic.

What you doing, mini-meatbags?

Underage gambling?

Shame on you.

Count me in.

We're not gambling.

We're playing Dungeons & Dragons.

Right now, we're fighting for our lives

in the lair of the dragon queen.

Wrong, right now you're

ass-deep in a folding chair.

Yes, but in my imagination

I'm riding a golden Pegasus.

Giddy up, Sparky!

Am I the only one seeing him sitting here

with peanut butter on his face?

Bender, were you built

without an imagination?

What? Don't be stupid, of course not.

It just hasn't descended yet.

Fry, do I have an imagination?

I don't know, Bender. Why do you ask?

Were the other boys making fun of you?


They said I couldn't imagine things.

Well, you never know unless you try.

Like, I didn't know

if I could swallow a softball,

so I gave it my best shot and voila!

Wait, that's not it.

There she blows.



Warning, out of dark matter fuel.

That's not a warning.

A warning is supposed to come

before something bad happens.


engines will shut down in one second.

That's more like it.



This space neighborhood

looks kind of sketchy.

Rock 'n' roll.

That punk stole our hood ornament.

Now no one will know

we have the LX package.


We need dark matter and we need it fast.

Fry, check Nibbler's litter box.

Maybe he dropped a steamer.

Aye, aye, Captain.

Yes! I've never been so excited

to see poop.

Well, maybe once.



There's gas in our ass.


Can you believe the price of dark matter?

It'd be cheaper to fill the tank

with Nobel Prize winners' sperm.


Total dark matter purchased, $632. 14.

Your Speedpass will now be charged.


You lousy...


gets a loads of that ugly ship.

What shades of green is that? Puke?


For your information

it's called Electric Mucus.

More like puke.


Yeah, why don't you come a little closer

so my boot can hear you?

Calm down, Leela.

You can vent tonight on your blog.

What's the matters,

you couldn't affords the LX package?


You're making fun of our ship?

Your ship is the most beat-up thing

I've ever seen,

and I've seen Mickey Rourke's head.

Yeah, she's a little worky,

but you got to gets big time ugly to be

five-time winners at a demolition derby.

That's five more times than we've won

or even entered.

We do suck.

Yup, and it's gonna be six winses

after tonights.

We'll sees abouts that.

Dark matter costs have tripled,

so we must reduce expenses.

Therefore, we will no longer provide

complimentary porno magazines

in the lounge.

-Darn it.

-And no more wasting fuel.

From now on I'll be keeping a tight hold

on the keys to the ship,

swallowing them before I go to bed

and recovering them the next morning.


Professor, it's 4:00.

00 in the evening? Then, good night.

I don't care what the Professor says.

We're entering that demolition derby

to prove our ship isn't a piece of junk.

But won't that turn our ship

into a piece of junk?

Shut up, Zoidberg.

He's right, Leela.

But we have no choice.

Matt Groening

Matthew Abraham Groening ( ( listen) GRAY-ning; born February 15, 1954) is an American cartoonist, writer, producer, animator, and voice actor. He is the creator of the comic strip Life in Hell (1977–2012) and the television series The Simpsons (1989–present), Futurama (1999–2003, 2008–2013), and the upcoming Disenchantment (2018). The Simpsons is the longest-running U.S. primetime-television series in history and the longest-running U.S. animated series and sitcom. Groening made his first professional cartoon sale of Life in Hell to the avant-garde Wet magazine in 1978. At its peak, the cartoon was carried in 250 weekly newspapers. Life in Hell caught the attention of James L. Brooks. In 1985, Brooks contacted Groening with the proposition of working in animation for the Fox variety show The Tracey Ullman Show. Originally, Brooks wanted Groening to adapt his Life in Hell characters for the show. Fearing the loss of ownership rights, Groening decided to create something new and came up with a cartoon family, the Simpson family, and named the members after his own parents and sisters—while Bart was an anagram of the word brat. The shorts would be spun off into their own series The Simpsons, which has since aired 639 episodes. In 1997, Groening and former Simpsons writer David X. Cohen developed Futurama, an animated series about life in the year 3000, which premiered in 1999, running for four years on Fox, then picked up by Comedy Central for additional seasons. Groening is currently developing a new series for Netflix titled Disenchantment, which is set to premiere in 2018. Groening has won 12 Primetime Emmy Awards, ten for The Simpsons and two for Futurama as well as a British Comedy Award for "outstanding contribution to comedy" in 2004. In 2002, he won the National Cartoonist Society Reuben Award for his work on Life in Hell. He received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on February 14, 2012. more…
