i just don't really like Mom episodes much. her three sons aren't funny either. of COURSE it was a good episode, since all futurama episodes are... just one of my least favorite.

The first epidode I gve less than 5 points to. The Zoidberg moments were funny, Mom was hilarious, but the fact that Fry lost everything makes it a little sad, especially as he could have crumbled Mom's oil empire, had he but known.

This was a really funny episode. Best parts: the auction, Zoidberg, and the anchovies. It was also a good introduction episode for Mom and her stupid sons.

Not the best character introduction in the world, Mom could have been given better lines, but her personality is all there.

Clerk:'Do you remember your pin number?'
Fry:'Sure, its the price of a Cheese pizza and a large soda where i used to work, Pinucci's Pizza.

Pamela Anderson:'How much do i owe you?'
Fry:'$10.77, same as my pin number.'

Fry:*gasp*'They must have found my secret pin number: 1077.'

Noticing a connection here?

Fry:(in dream)Bender! Leela! Don't leave me!
Leela:(floating away)'Goodbyeeee...'
Bender:(floating away)'Wheeeeeeeeee!'

What a great episode, truly one of the classic ones. Fry is so friggin hilarious in this one, as is Bender. Great introduction to Mom and her three stooges.

This episode deserves a five just for Fry's reaction to learning he's a billionaire - every time I watch that I just die laughing.

Ancient Egyptian Algebra. Hah, cracked me up when i heard that.

And Fry's face was classic when he heard that he got a billion dollars.

But the other parts dont measure up. Good episode overall

One of the best episodes. The commercial joke was a great one (with an egg). Also, really liked the way Fry started to live once he got rich.
