The Planet Express Crew spend the day visiting the Flea Market. While looking around, Leela comes to this stand all about Needy Newbie. The owner explains how these animals are to be collected inside their original box and never opened until they have the whole set. Then, Amy’s mother, Inez, comes by wanting to buy one of them.
She introducing Leela into collecting them and invites her to one of the Needy Newbie Weekly Collectors Meeting. When there, Inez Wong displays her Needy Newbie collection to everyone. Being the most greatest collection in the whole galaxy, Inez only needs 2 more and the set will be complete. Leela and Inez end up fighting on who will get those last two first.
When Leela finally finds the first of the two Needy Newbies, she is bought out by Inez Wong. Now Inez only needs 1 more. Back at home, the Planet Express Crew discovers that if you leave two Needy Newbies alone together, they form together to make one. Fransworth hacked into the Needy Newbies brain to figure out why. When the whole set of them is together, they will become one big Needy Newbie and take over the world and destroy the human race.
Leela receives an e-mail from a person who has the last Needy Newbie that Inez is looking for. She quickly heads off to the planet but when she reaches the door, she sees Inez Wong. Leela tries to tell her what would happen if she bought them all but she won’t listen. Just then, the person trying to sell the Needy Newbie speaks up. He says that they are both too late and that he has already sold it. They all find out that it was Dr. Zoidberg, who bought in return for some blood, which he had laying around the Planet Express place.
Zoidberg drives everyone back to the Planet Express place to show Inez what happens if you keep the Needy Newbies together. She finally believes them and says she is going to start taking up collecting grandchildren.
