The Why Of Fry without a doubt....the main storyline behind the whole Futurama premise is the best plot ever....

Space Pilot 3000 has by far the best storyline ever! Others:
Hell is other robots,
The Sting,
Bend Her,
and Crimes of the hot. There are way more, these are just the ones I remember.

I would say The Luck of the Fryrish,Rosewell that ends well,  and the Sting would be the thumbs up for me.

These episodes were great, and the storyline was surprising, and emotional.

I have to say that the best episode storylines would depend on the kind of best.

The best overall is definately Space Pilot 3000.  The funniest is, without a doubt, Spanish Fry and Three Hundred Big Boys.  The saddest has to be Jurassic Bark.  The most emotional would be a tie between Leela's Homeworld, The Sting, and The Devil's Hands Are Idle Playthings.  And definately, the most creative, are the Anthology of Interest episodes.

But my top three are: Space Pilot 3000, Leela's Homeworld, and Spanish Fry.

Since this is for best story (not episode, or which was the funniest, or whatever. Story, people), I'd say "Godfellows" stands out.

Godfellows is a good episode but I would have to say the best story line would have to go to

"A Head in the Polls"

That episode was funny and It had about everything you would want.

Come on how could you forget about that episode!

The Why Of Fry and Roswell that Ends Well are the top two for me.  Complex stories make better episodes.

While maybe not the best storyline, it was certainly done well in a lot of ways.  Fry insisting that one vote never made a difference foreshadows Nixon winning by one vote at the end.  Nixon buying Bender's body is a logical development in the story.  I'm sure there are other examples as well.

Hey thanks for The pleasent welcoming Victor

A head in the polls was a classic episode because it had everything from the brain slugs to Nixon Going around and recking up the place, And who could forget the Dudes for the legalization of hemp.

The Why of Fry - bringing together basically every random plot thread about Fry in one ep.  Ingenious.  Now if only they hadn't screwed up the time travel so bad.  I guess that's why Matt and DXC were against time travel - David doesn't know how to write it properly.

The Sting - Actually, this doesn't get best storyline because of the fairly cliché (but not expected) ending.  It still deserves a plug as BEST EPISODE EVER.

EDIT: Damn, I thought I'd gotten that already.

I agree with the whole "Why of Fry" thing--definitely the most ingenious, as you said. Also, "Godfellas" has always been one of my favorites (in my always-changing ratings list, it's either #2 or, maybe, #1)storyline-wise, especially because, being somewhat un-religious (Catholic, leaning towards agnostic), this episode just hits me as being completely open-ended, allowing the viewer to draw their own conclusions about if what Bender saw was really God.

Oh yeah, and one great plug deserves another--go "Sting"!

In all fairness though, very few writers are successful at stories about time-traveling gardening tools. *boom-boom-chic*

I'll be here all night, folks.  Try the veal.

Anyways, this is a fairly open ended question, which can be judged on a lot of criterias. 

Based on more "serious" storylines, there's a lot to choose from.  The trippy, mind-bending story of "The Sting".  The open-ended, satirical, and even somewhat spiritual (and I'm an agnostic for god's sakes, no pun intended there) "Godfellas".  The heartbreaking and suspensful "Jurassic Bark" (and the similar "Luck of the Fryrish" ). 

Then there's the stories that aren't serious, but nonetheless pretty creative.  Who in their right mind would come up with a time traveling story where the protaganist becomes his own grandfather.  The Futurama writers apparently ("Roswell That Ends Well" ).  Or the idea of time randomly switching around ("Time Keeps on Slippin'", and here I'm mentioning it for just that element of the story since I realize it had the more serious Fry/Leela thing going on as well)?  And it takes some serious creativity to take a fairly basic concept (the main character attempting to save a banned tv show) and making it as ridiculously hilarious as "Where No Fan Has Gone Before".

So with that ramble over with, just about any of the mentioned episodes (along with plenty of others) could easily qualify.
