I've seen this episode twice (fell asleep first time) and it just wasn't very funny. I agree with what others have said in that Mom isn't a great character and she just can't carry an episode like Monty Burns can.

If I was to rate it generally, it would be 4.5. Oh well. Mom is quite humorous.

Although this episode had it's moments, it just wasn't up to the standards of most Futurama episodes. It started out so great too, but as soon as the whole anchovie thing came in, it just went downhill from there. Mom and her sons just aren't really funny. More of Bender's rich antics would have given this episode a 4/5 though, they were just hillarious.

It was a good episode. I really don't care for Mom though. Zoidberg went crazy at the end, which was funny. I loved the antique toy joke.
Leela: You're just saying that because he gave you that antique robot toy.
Bender: Ya, it is cute isn't it. (One of the heads pops up)
Bender: Ahhhh!

The one thing I hate the most about this episode is that it's on my DVD collection. I didn't even finish watching it the first time and the second time it was even less funny.
