I enjoyed it because it introduced Mom, though to me it was obvious the "sweet old granny" thing was an act. Her sons did not disturb me, as Guy Pilla states. But, that a differant opinion.
Basiclly a four because it somehow felt...less humorous. Dunno why, it just did.

Wow, what a beginning, that really made me think. I liked this episode better than the last one. I laughed and learned something about Zoidberg's race and I got introduced to Mom. Of course he lost all his money at the end.. but on the other hand, wouldn't it be boring in the long round if he was rich?

I always like how they expand the episode and they did it with this one, Fry has a dream with an addvertisment in it, after talking about it they go shopping, Bender gets arrested and they have to pay the fine, Fry goes to his old bank to get more money out of his account and finds out he has 4.3 million dollars, he uses it to by apartment and decorate it in 1999 style he also uses the money to buy anchovies,ect. so like the is great. Nice jokes too! -thanks Matt for brining Futurama to tv-

This episode was less than great.
it appears that I have never laughed throughout this one. But trying to buy old anchovies away from that old woman, kind of funny. [not just that well I can say that it had Amy in parts of the show.

I'd give it a 3!

I only love this episode because it introduces mom, one of the meanest yet funniest characters in the series.
This episode also came out with intresting ideas, such as ads in your head.
great but not awsome

quite a good way to introduce mom but u feel bad for fry because it got nicked by mom, personally i wud of preferred bender stealing it and using it on booze or something like that. future generations r so dumb to think moms a kind, caring old lady. bitch
