As the final series to premiere this season, Futurama and the crew of the Planet Express travel into the past to mess with history in "Roswell That Ends Well." As the episode opens, Fry and the crew are waiting for a supernova. It's a once-in-a-lifetime event and "anyone who misses this will regret it the rest of their life." So, of course, Bender (voiced by Di Maggio) sends Fry (voiced by West) off to make popcorn.
In a hurry, Fry puts the metal Jiffy Pop popcorn in the microwave just as the supernova takes place. When the blue from the microwave radiation meets the red of the supernova blast, the Planet Express crew find themselves 1,000 years in the past in the year 1947. Unable to get control of the ship, they crash-land in Roswell, N.M.
The ship doesn't suffer much damage, but Bender does. He refused to wear a seat belt and ends up flying through the windshield. Fry finds Bender's head, Doctor Zoidberg (voiced by West) begins picking up Bender's other pieces, and Leela (Sagal) finishes fixing the ship. Unfortunately, their crash landing attracted the natives, and the Army shows up to capture Zoidberg and the pieces of Bender's body.
As Professor Farnsworth (voiced by West) figures out what's happened, the crew develops plans to get back to the future. They have only 24 hours to get back Bender's body and find a new microwave oven before their trip back becomes impossible. Leela and the Professor, dressed as locals, head off to try and get a microwave at an appliance store. In the meantime, Fry and Bender's head go to the local Army base to try and find Bender's body. Fry figures he can also visit his grandfather, an army private who was stationed on the base. The Professor warns Fry not to interfere with the past or he might end up never existing.
The crew has never faced a tougher challenge as Leela faces life as a woman in the '40s, Zoidberg enjoys meeting new people while he's being autopsied, and Fry tries not to kill his grandfather or be attracted to his grandmother. Now it's a race against time for the Planet Express crew to get back through the space hole before it closes and they are trapped in the past forever.
