( door creaking )

Welcome back,Lord Nibbler,Ambassador to Earth--

Home World ofthe Pizza Bagel.

Thank you.

I bear many receiptsfor reimbursement.

The four welcomes of friendshipto you as well, Leela.

We shall manipulateyour mind

so we appearto be speaking your language.

Do not be afraid,my child.

I'm not afraid.

Uh, good, good.

So, you're real name isLord Nibbler?

That's a coincidence.

That name isfor your sake.

In the time it would take

to pronounce one letterof my true name,

a trillion cosmoses would flareinto existence

and sink into eternal night.

( laughing ):Oh, you're all so cute.

No, we're not.

We Nibblonians are an ancientand powerful race.


When the universe was forged in the crucible of the Big Bang

our mighty race was already 17 years old.

( chuckling ):Aw...

NIBBLONIAN: For the first millisecond

of time, things were okay,

but, then, there arose a terrible enemy--

the Brain Spawn.

( chattering excitedly )

Ever since,we have waged unceasing war

against these dreadful...

Lunch is ready.

Then, let the Feastof 1,000 Hams begin.

( gobbling ravenously )

( belching )

( purring )So, why are these Brain Spawnattacking Earth, Nibbler?

The Brain Spawn hateall consciousness.

The thoughts of othersscreech at them

like the forced laughs

of a billionart-house movie patrons.

Thus, they travelfrom world to world,

making everyone stupid

in order to wipe outall thought in the universe.

Wipe out all thought?

My God, they're likeflying televisions!

And even we arepowerless to stop them,

fearsome though we are.
