Four episodes from the popular animated series hand-picked by Matt Groening and David X. Cohen. In ‘Hell is Other Robots’, during a Beastie Boys concert, Bender runs into a high school buddy, Fender. Fender invites him to a party, which turns out to be robots getting high on electricty. After one try, Bender is hooked. In ‘Anthology of Interest I’, Fansworth creates a What-If machine. The crew decides to ask the machine questions, which it answers as a video simulation. Bender wonders what it would be like to be 500 feet tall; Leela asks what it would be like if she was a little bit more impulsive; and what would have happened if Fry had never been frozen 1000 years ago? In ‘Roswell That Ends Well’, during a supernova explosion, Fry uses the Planet Express’s microwave oven, and as the two forces collide, they are sent back to 1947. They crash in the desert outside of Roswell, and Dr. Zoidberg and Bender’s headless body are imprisoned and taken to a military base, where Fry’s grandfather is stationed. Finally, in ‘The Sting’, after arriving at an asteroid field in deep space, Fry, Leela and Bender attempt to collect honey produced by vicious space bees. Leela decides to take a baby queen bee that accidentally kills Fry. While at Fry’s funeral, guilt ridden Leela has a romantic dream that causes her to believe that Fry is still alive. As Leela’s bizarre dreams continue to develop, she sinks into a much stranger sleep.
