TRUST ME ON THIS.

WHILE OTHER PEOPLE WEREOUT LIVING THEIR LIVES,

I WASTED MINE WATCHING TV,BECAUSE DEEP DOWN,

I KNEW IT MIGHT ONE DAYHELP ME SAVE THE WORLD.

PLUS, I WOULD'VE LOSTMY WORKMEN'S COMP

IF I HAD GONE OUTSIDE.

NOW JUST READ THESE CUE CARDS.

AND... ACTION!

"MISS McNEAL...

"I'M AFRAIDI MUST DECLINE

"YOUR OFFER OF MARRIAGE,

"FOR YOU SEE, I'M DYING.

COUGH, THEN FALL OVER DEAD."

"MY GOD, HE'S DEAD."

"I WILL NOW MAKEMY CLOSING STATEMENT.

"I HEREBY RETURN

"TO MY SINGLEFEMALE LAWYER CAREER

NO MATTER WHAT ANY MAN SAYS."

"WE FIND THE DEFENDANT

VULNERABLE YET SPUNKY."

HUH?

Attention, McNeal.

We are reasonably satisfied

with the events we have seen.

Overall, I would rate ita C-PLUS.

Okay; not great.

As a result, we will not destroyyour planet,

but neither will we provide youwith our recipe for immortality.

WAY TO OVERACT,ZOIDBERG.

And now we must returnto our planet to catch the end

of a thousand-year-oldLeno monologue.

( eerie whirring )
