The Story[edit]

Bender takes charge of a scout troop, but after declaring that membership is for robots only, he is soon challenged by Leela's all-girl, evil mutant troop. Not wanting to be left out, Fry forms a troop of his own, with himself as its only member! When Planet Express sponsors a field trip and delivery competition, Fry, Leela, and Bender set out to prove to each other who has the top troop!

Additional Info[edit]


  • Here are the list of climates changes on the planet:
    • Mountain World
    • Swamp World
    • Tropical Island World
    • Forest World
    • Desert World
    • Volcano World
    • Ice World


    Fry: Fine! I'll just start my own troop with just me in it! I'll call it... The Fry Scouts!
    Professor: That's the saddest thing I've ever seen. And I'm best friends with Zoidberg.
    Zoidberg: Hooray! Zoidberg isn't the most pathetic staff member anymore!

    Bender: Destroy all humans!
    Amy: Ugh! Why did you pick that motto for your bot scout troop, Bender?
    Bender: We tried, "Maim all humans," but it just didn't have the same sizzle!

    Fry: Surprise, Amy! I did your laundry and put everything back in your closet!
    Amy: Oh no! I arrange things from cute to smoking. You put a sexy skirt right next to an adorable top! AAAAGH! This will take hours to fix!

    Hermes: Hmmmmm... Time to use an old conflict resolution technique I learned at camp!
    [Hermes pulls out a taser and zaps Fry, Leela and Bender.]
    Fry, Leela and Bender: AAAAAAAH!
    Amy: You learned that in the scouts?
    [Hermes shows Amy a badge on the inside of his jacket.]
    Hermes: Still got my tasering badge!



  • Leela's scout troop names themselves "The Sisterhood of Evil Mutants" in reference to X-Men enemies "The Brotherhood of Evil Mutants". Also in reference to X-Men, Fry is seen using Cerebro to attempt to recruit scouts for his troop.
  • During Fry's flashback, Yancy is watching ALF.
  • The crew get lost and ask the cast of Lost in Space for directions.
  • Fry is seen on a fake cover of SAD magazine, a publication that resembles MAD magazine.
  • Leela's troop puts on a performance of the musical Wicked.


  • When exiting the ship on the planet, Bungalow-Bot's lower body is not drawn below Leela's ponytail.
