On December 31, 1999, deadbeat pizza delivery boy Fry (voice of Billy West) gets accidentally cryogenically frozen until the year 3000. When he emerges, cyclops alien Leela (voice of Katey Sagal) is ordered to implant a chip in his hand for a life assignment. When he finds out that he's ordered to be a delivery boy again, he escapes. He is rightfully baffled by the future world and mistakes a suicide booth for a phone booth, where he meets the lovably debauched robot, Bender (voice of John DiMaggio). Fry and Bender go underground to the ruins of old New York, but Leela catches up with them. When Fry gives himself up, Leela decides to take out her life assignment chip and join them. They find Fry's only living relative, Professor Farnsworth (voice of Billy West), and get new jobs making deliveries with the Planet Express company in the Professor's space ship.
