Zoidberg's species invades Earth when he eats the Earth flag, and he takes refuge in his home planet's embassy.

original airdate-- December 22,2002   rating--4.2 million


music--"Theme from Futurama" by Christopher Tyng


opening caption--"Or is it?"

opening cartoon--"The Queen was in the Parlor" (1932)

Goofs--When Zoidberg takes the flag from Old Man Waterfall, Old Man Waterfall's fake hand is the wrong one, unless he has two fake hands.

Trivia: This is the third role that a member of the Waterfall family appears in, this time "Old Man Waterfall." As with all others, Old Man Waterfall paid a heavy price for interacting with the Planet Express crew, this time getting squashed underneath a huge crab claw. We are also introduced to Frida Waterfall at the end, who will show up again later.
