The Story

Act I: Fry

At Planet Express, Fry, Leela and Bender learn from the Professor (who's wearing a sombrero) that he's sold the company to Mom. Immediately after this, a report comes on the news saying that she is now the majority shareholder, and ruler, of Earth. Mom claims everyone as slaves and sets a curfew so the crew decide to escape. Unfortunately the ship is severely damaged, with unknown reason, and needs repairs. While everyone else does something important, Fry is instructed to find a hammer. Fry dies getting the hammer but is brought back with the Professor's new invention, the Reanimator (which looks like a giant toaster). Fry keeps the hammer (for a weapon), which the Professor didn't need, and heads off to find the tools that are needed. After the repairs are done, it turns out that the backup dark matter engine is needed, but was pawned. Fry is given a gun and sent via the sewers (to avoid the Hoverbot Death Troopers) to Rook Takes Pawnshop.

Act II: Bender

Fry returns with the engine and they install it, the four escape, taking the Reanimator with them. Mom converts the planet into a spaceship in order to take over the universe and is annoyed to hear that the Planet Express crew is escaping. She then proceeds to try to hunt them down, but the Earth's engines aren't powerful enough. At Sal's Salvage on an asteroid, Sal informs them that the only kind of engine that will move the Earth is a dark matter engine ("and a big ones at thats"), and she'll need the Professor to get it. The Professor informs Bender that he's now a playable character and the ship gets caught. Sal has helped out Mom by trapping the Planet Express ship in a suck beam. Bender abandons ship, in full view of Mom and her sons, then dies on impact with the asteroid and is brought back by the Reanimator, which falls on his disassembled body. He then agrees to rescue the others in exchange for a box of magazines with fembot centre folds.

On his way to rescue the crew Bender has to evade Ignar in a turret, machinery activated by Larry and finally win in battle against Walt, who's in a tank. Bender pulls the leaver, boards the ship, and they escape.

Act III: Leela

The Professor says that he's not skilled enough to invent something to save the day; they'll have to visit his mentor and former graduate advisor Adoy, who lives on Bogad in the furthest corner of the universe. They don't have enough fuel, so Leela, who's now playable, is asked to get some. Mom catches them because she wants blueprints for the dark matter engine. They only exist in the Professor's head so she takes that, in a jar, and sends the ship hurtling towards the Sun. The ship crash lands near Sun City. Ra-Ra the Sun King offers them dark matter in exchange for protecting his people from the Sun God and his army.

Act IV: Zoidberg

Act V: Mom
