Earth is suffering from global warming and can't counter its rising temperature through the usual method (the dropping of a giant ice cube into the ocean). The Professor tells everyone that the pollution is due to his poor design of robots, so everyone decides to destroy all robots. Nixon holds a robot party on the Galapagos islands to get all the robots in one place so they can be destroyed, but at the last minute the Professor has an idea and gets all the robots to vent upwards at the same moment, causing the Earth to move farther away from the sun and solving the problem.

Archaeologists find the remnants of the pizzeria where Fry used to work in the 20th century, including the petrified remains of his dog, Seymour.

Fry gets his petrified dog back, and the Professor says that he could clone it, but Bender gets jealous of Fry's new best friend and throws the dog in molten lava. When Bender sees how distraught Fry is, he jumps in after the dog and rescues it. The Professor begins the cloning process, but finds out that the dog is 15 years old. Fry stops the cloning, because he only had Seymour until he was 3, so he figures that the dog led a full life and loved someone else. Meanwhile, we see in flashbacks that Seymour spent the rest of his days in front of the old pizzeria waiting for Fry.
