Fry returns to college to prove he can be just as good of a dropout as he was in the 20th century. His dorm roommate - the Professor's latest project - is a superintelligent monkey who shows him up at every opportunity.
This used to be one of my favorites, but I think it was more due to pleasant associations it holds for me... On repeated viewing, it drags a little, and the "ROBOT HOUUUUUSEEE!" bits get a bit tired.
But still worth it if only for that immortal line, "I just wanted to be a moderately intelligent monkey in a suit... that's why i'm going to business school!"

Uw...I've never liked this episode. There was too many new characters, but also the story was very poor and was basically there to provide a few cheap laughs (which most failed anyway). A pretty bad episode.

This episode was pretty bad except for two scenes. The one where the Professor says he'll be teaching "The Mathmatics of quantum neutreno fields" and Fry says, "Mathmatics of wonton burrito meals". And the second was when Bender and his Frat buddies are on the ladder and when they see the inside of the computer their eyes bulge out. Besides that, where was Dr. Zoidberg in this episode!?

loved the refrerence to animal house. the monkey (to me) is a very weak character, even though the plot's spotlight is on him.
