"Past-O-Rama" (Part 1) - Episode 5
 
The crew enter a worm hole and when they return to Earth they discover that they have traveled back to 1999. Fry thinks it's the perfect opportunity to go and tell his parents how much he loves them before he leaves them forever. Leela and Bender try and find somewhere where they will not be recognized so they enter a phone booth to see Nibbler using the phone ordering a pizza (Using the name I.C. Wiener)

Leela pets Nibbler and he is pulled away from the phone as it hangs up. Mr Panucci tells Fry to throw the pizza out as the guy has hung up. Meanwhile Fry from the year 3000 visits his parents and is about to enter the house when Nibbler runs up to him and tells him that he needs to enter the cryogenic tube as the other Fry never delivered the pizza. Fry quickly runs to the cryogenic lab and jumps into the tube but accidentally set the freezer for 1,100 years

That would cause a paradox. But dude, that is an AWESOME story. One thing I would change: How Nibbler is prevented from making the call. I doubt Leela would just go 'Oh look it's Nibbler in 1999 let's pet him!'

I like this one a lot. It could also be that Mom is able to clear out all of the robots living in the apartment once she buys it, but Fry, being human, is not detected. So he actually ends up trapped in the converted Robot Arms Apartments with no way to get out (we'd have to do something about the window, maybe Mom installs a shield thing like what Farnsworth has to protect the PE building from Santa). So there would be the plot of what Mom does to the robots, and the plot of "where's Fry, what".

"Past-O-Rama" (Part 2) - Episode 6

Nibbler walks into the cryogenic lab to see Fry's cryogenic tube set for 1,100 years and he quickly tries to change the dial to 1,000 years but it won't budge. Nibbler hides under the table when Bender paradox emerges and sticks the time code onto Fry's butt. Nibbler watches as the Bender paradox returns back to the year 3,000. In the year 3,100 Fry clambers out of the tube and looks around and wonders why New New York looks slightly different.

Meanwhile back in the year 1999 the clock strikes twelve and Leela and Bender watch as everyone celebrates the new year. They decide they've had enough of the past so decide to go and look for Fry and go back home. They slowly walk through the streets of New York calling for Fry when they hear him singing in the shower above the Pizzeria as he had not made the delivery to the cryogenic lab.

In the year 3,100 Fry heads towards Planet Express to see that it has become abandoned and is about to be knocked down. He discovers what year he's in as he spots the Repo men toss out the professor one way time machine, which gives Fry an idea...

At the cryogenic lab, Nibbler is still tying to reset Fry's tube when he senses danger. Meanwhile Bender and Leela head up the stairs of the pizzeria to Fry's room when Nibbler runs up to them telling them that it is not the Fry they know and they mustn't interact with him.  They all sneak out of the pizzeria as Bender kicks Seymor the 'stupid dog'

In the year 3100, Fry climbs into the time machine travelling through time until the Universe resets itself. Bender, Leela and Nibbler sneak through the streets while in the time machine, Fry slows the machine down when he reaches 1999. He jumps out of the machine and runs to the phone booth stopping Leela and Bender from interrupting Nibbler on the phone making the order. Fry tells them to get into the time machine as they watch Nibbler walk out of the phone booth and towards the cryogenic lab.

Fry leaves Bender and Leela in the time machine as he states he just needs to do something as he runs off with a letter. He sneaks past himself walking towards the cryogenic lab with the pizza as he heads towards his parents house.

Fry returns and they travel through time until they reach 3011. In 3011 the Professor tells the crew that they are taking a delivery to the wormhole at the deepest depths of the universe. As Leela, Bender and Fry get ready to go on the machine the time machine appears and squashes and kills them. The threesome appear out of the machine and have their pay cut for using company property without permission.

Back on January 1st 2000. Fry's parents wake up to find the letter Fry posted for them as they open it up and begin to read it...

Wow, the ending is quite touching... If they could make a time travel ep and include a 'B'Awwww' ending (no, TLPJF was not a 'B'Awwww' ending for me) it would be a masterpiece. I'm talking about a JB and TLOTF type ending. Kind of like BBS.

"Attack of the Killer Plants" - Episode 7

Leela plants some seeds outside Planet Express to show off to the neighbours. When the Professor tosses some toxic liquid out of the window and onto the plants, they start to grow at super speed. The next day they discover that the large plants have squeezed into the building and are growing inside Planet Express.

When one of the plants starts to wrap around Leela, Fry tears it out of the ground killing it. They soon start to multiply and spread across town as everyone runs around in a panic. Not wanting to face the wrath of the man-eating plants or the angered citizens, the whole crew flee to hide on a faraway planet until the heat dies down.

On Earth, The plants wrap around the citizens and bring them to the centre on New New York. The plants tell everyone that they will call off the mass killings if they sacrifice the first person who killed one of their kind, Philip J. Fry!

The angered citizens embark on a universe wide hunt for Fry while the crew have accidentally landed on the plants home world. They must find the antidote to wipe out the species from Earth which would be a lot easier if they weren't being hunted down by thousands of Earthicans...

The whole plant thing is similar to the B-Plot of the comic 'Claw and Order'. But not much.

I've never actually read the comic, I just based the basic plot of the plants coming to life from the book "The Day of the Triffids"

"The Bendereth Commandment" - Episode 8

Bender overhears the Don Bot saying that he is going to fake his own death to get thousands of dollars worth of ceremonial gifts. When the day of the fake funeral arrives, Bender announces the Mafias plan (Thinking he'll be rewarded with some of the gifts) The funeral is called off and the mafia aren't too happy as they shoot Bender they miss and shoot the preacher-Bot instead.

As he is rushed into hospital Bender tells him that he will run the church while he's gone. Instead of spreading the word of Robot God, Bender spreads the word of 'Kill all humans'. When his sermons gain more and more publicity some robots take Benders teachings too literally and start brutally attacking their masters.

When Bender realises what he's done it's up to him to spread the word of God instead, but is it too late for anyone to take any notice of him?...

Okay let's see...

"What If?"

The Professor invents an attachment for the What-If? Machine that allows you to see what would of happened if different choices were made in past episodes, instead of creating a completely new story. We see what would of happened if Fry sold Planet Express in 'Future Stock', what if the cloning of Seymour continued in 'Jurassic Bark' (someone on PEEL came up with that) and what would of happened if Fry hadn't accidently discovered Bender in 'Godfellas'.

(Among many others, see what you guys can come up with)

I love the premise of the crew going back in time to 1999, although I suppose Bender and Fry have both already done so.
I still think that could make for a great episode if done properly.

The plant one could be decent too, if not a bit similar to The Beast with a Billion Backs.

I like the set up for the one with the Professor seeking a girlfriend on the Near Death Star, but I'm not so sure about how it progresses.

The others are a bit... fan-fictiony...

"The Trouble With Giggles" - Episode 11

Fry wakes up to discover everyone laughing for no apparent reason. He does everything he can to discover what's so funny. He finds out that if everyone continues to laugh then new gases would fill up the atmosphere making it impossible to live in New New York.

The laughing continues across the town as Fry must think of a way to stop everyone before it's too late. He manages to get the Professor to help him who tells Fry he must reverse the chemical form of Nitrous Oxide (Laughing gas) and cover the whole city with it.

It's a race against time for Fry to fill New New York with the 'Sadding Gas' (Named by Fry) who flies over the city with the ship covering the city and saving the day

I'm a little busy right now with some other project so yes, of course you can write full scripts and screen plays for them, in fact I'd love it if you did! (Would it be possible if once you've finished them you send me a copy and I'll give you some pointers or changes I think should be made?)
