In 'Lesser of Two Evils' the delicate balance of power in the Planet Express offices is thrown into disarray as Professor Farnsworth makes an new addition to the personnel, Flexo the robot.

In 'A Bicyclops Built for Two' Leela meets 'Al' the only male cyclops left in the galaxy. He insists that she is the last surviving female but what does this mean for their relationship?

However at the end of the meal he leaves them with the bill, some $1200. Suddenly a job in the kitchens is beckoning... In 'The Problem with Popplers' the crew land on an alien planet and in true early Star Trek fashion discover a totally new lifeform with strangely addictive qualities.

But despite being a rational robot Bender becomes convinced the castle is haunted and ends up being pursued by a terrifying driverless car. Finally in 'The Cryonic Woman' Fry's ex-girlfriend from the year 1999 turns up similarly unthawed, but she kinda doesn't fit in.
