[Scene: Planet Express: Lounge. Amy sits on a red hover arm chair, while Fry, Leela and Bender sit on the couch watching a black screen with a few tiny little white dots, there's no sound, there's also two tiny crude looking white space ships on opposite sides from the screen to one another firing little white dots at each other.]

Bender: 'Watching live Spacewar games is great.

Fry: 'You'd think there would be a little better graphics in the future?

Leela: 'There is, there's just lots of people who like old crude looking video games, even from your time Fry.

Amy: 'And this game is even older than you Fry, if you count the years of you being cryogenically frozen.

Fry: 'What year did it come out in?

Amy: 'It came out in about 1960.

Fry: 'Oh. What games have great graphics?

Leela: 'Fry, we have games that look exactly as things do in real life.

Bender: 'Yet, I've always wondered, that maybe our universe, is nothing but a cartoon show being watched from another universe on TV, or maybe we're nothing more than a lame ass fan fiction which someone is going to read, and then they read this sentence, which is breaking the forth wall. [All three just stare at Bender blankly.]

Amy: (confused) 'What?

Fry: (confused) 'What?

Leela: 'You're crazy Bender.

Bender: 'The point is, that maybe our best video games that have real life graphics, would be nothing but a cartoon in another universe's point of view, depending on how things look there.

Fry: 'Mmm, maybe.

Leela: 'I guess.

Amy: 'Could be.

[Farnsworth walks in with his hands in the air.]

Farnsworth: 'Good news everyone!

Bender: 'Oh, crap! Where you gonna send us now to our near deaths or possible deaths?

Farnsworth: 'Not to day.

Bender: 'Oh that's good?

Farnsworth: 'Anyhoo, Leela and Amy could you help me make a commercial for our company Planet Express, which will involve you two in a naked shower scene kissing?

Leela: 'No way! I got enough horny nerds looking at me already from the Internet as it is!

Bender: 'Especially from that site from another parallel universe called The Turanga Pages.

Leela: 'Yes, thank you Bender.

Farnsworth: 'What about you Amy?

Amy: 'No, I can't make a show of myself. I can't hurt poor Kif's feelings.

Farnsworth: 'Oh come on women sex sells! You did in Cornwood?

Amy: 'Because Cornwood messed with our minds.

Fry: 'Yeah, I heard about that.

Leela: 'I told you about that Fry. We were all a bit insane in Cornwood, an--

Farnsworth: 'And you too love each other, blah blah blah ! So will you Leela and Amy do it now?

Leela And Amy: 'No!

Farnsworth: 'Ahhhhh, dammit! [He glows.] Now if you excuse me, I need to go to the Angry Dome for a few hours. [He walks out of the room waving his fists and rambling.] (fuming) Wouldn’t do it! Ohhhhh, rrrrrr, ahhhhhhhhh---

Cut to: Outside Planet Express. Farnsworth can be seen pacing back and forth, waving his fists and glowing. People just look at him for a few seconds, then just shake they're heads, and continue about their business.

The End.
