The Professor plans for Bill Nye.

Objectives

  • Have The Professor Tidy Up the Place (6s)

Story[edit | edit source]

The Professor Good news, everyone! My good friend Bill Nye is visiting New New York. Let's make sure we give him a warm welcome.

Fry Bill Nye the Science Guy? Or Bill Nye the Politics Guy?

The Professor Bill Nye the Politics Guy is no longer my friend.

The Professor He ruined every dinner party I ever invited him to.


Amy Bill Nye's coming to town? That nerd jerk!

Fry What do you have against Bill Nye?

Amy He rejected my application for a job as his TV assistant. I was going to be "Amy Wong the Science Wonk".

Fry Wong and "Wonk" don't really rhyme.

Amy That's what HE said! Smeesh, it's science, not poetry!


Part 2

Description[edit source]

The crew goes on a mission.

Objectives

Rewards[edit source]

  • 150 Nixonbucks 75 XP

Story[edit | edit source]

The Professor Now remember: Bill Nye is a very particular houseguest. We'll need to make room for his bow tie, his blue lab coat, and his honorary degrees.

Fry How many honorary degrees does he have?

The Professor At least five thousand. Sometimes I think people give him honorary degrees just so they can wear their academic regalia.

Fry They have a point. If you're wearing a long black robe, nobody cares if you skip the underwear.


Fry Why were we being attacked?

The Professor It's those danged science deniers. They're protesting Bill Nye's tour to promote science.

Fry But why did they attack OUR ship?

The Professor I may have painted his science tour hashtag on the hull of the ship.


Part 3

Bill Nye arrives.

Objectives

  • Have Bender Steal Diplomas (4h 0m 0s)

Bender Is it true Bill Nye's here? I hate that guy!

Fry You too? What don't YOU like about him?

Bender I'm a science denier!

Fry But aren't you mostly made of science?

Bender Oh, please, spare me your human "logic". What makes you so sure I even exist?

Fry Mostly the beatings.


The Professor Good to see you, old friend! The work you're doing to promote science is much appreciated.

Bill Nye I know - especially by the people who award honorary degrees! Did you know I have over five thousand of them?

The Professor I don't have any. All my degrees are real, and they're for actual science. Joyless, tedious science.

The Professor Please, Bill, take me with you on your space adventures!

Bill Nye Miss, I understand you're the Professor's helper. Could you help me prepare for my lecture tour?

Amy You don't recognize me, do you? I'm Amy Wong! Years ago you rejected my application to be your assistant!

Bill Nye Wong?... Wong... Of course! You're the young woman whose name doesn't rhyme with anything useful!

Bill Nye Did you ever change your name to "Bussistant" like I suggested?


Bill Nye Listen, Amy, I know you're upset you didn't get to be my assistant. But you earned your Ph.D., and you should be proud of that.

Bill Nye I'm sure you'll make many important scientific discoveries. You've probably published some already!

Amy I really haven't published anything. But I did save Earth from an invasion of hyperintelligent mind-controlling kittycats.

Bill Nye Well, keep trying.


Part 5

Description[edit source]

Bill Nye takes on the science deniers.

Objectives

Rewards[edit source]

  • 150 Nixonbucks 75 XP

Story[edit | edit source]

Bill Nye If you believe, as I do, that science is vital to our understanding of the universe, you have to help me take on the science deniers.

Fry Does that mean we'll have to engage them in meaningful debate? 'Cause I'm not much of a debater.

Bill Nye Well, then, let's let our rayguns do the debating for us, shall we?


Bill Nye We've already made a lot of progress getting through to the science deniers.

Fry What made them change their minds?

Bill Nye I showed them my baking-soda volcano.

Bill Nye Then I took it apart to prove it wasn't magic and didn't require divine intervention.

Bill Nye That convinced a good ten percent of them.


Part 6

Bill Nye and the Professor bond.

Objectives

Rewards[edit source]

  • 160 Nixonbucks 75 XP

Story[edit | edit source]

The Professor Your dedication to the cause of science continually amazes me. I feel like I've wasted my life by comparison.

Bill Nye Don't sell yourself short, Hubert. You've created a lot of great doomsday devices.

The Professor Failures! All failures! In every case, I was trying and failing to build a doomsweek device!


The Professor Thanks to your encouragement, I've finally created a working doomsweek device, capable of destroying multiple universes at once!

Bill Nye That's great, I guess...

The Professor Oh my, yes! If this thing destroys your universe, you'll know it! I call it the Multimageddon NSX Bill Nye Edition, after the man who made all this destruction possible.

Bill Nye You think you could move the "Bill Nye" part up to the beginning?

Fry Do you think I could ever be a scientist?

Bill Nye That depends. Are you willing to work hard and dedicate yourself to learning?

Fry Not really. I was actually just hinting that I'd like to try on your lab coat. Can I do that?

Bill Nye That depends. Are you willing to work hard and dedicate yourself to learning?


Bill Nye Even though science isn't your forte, you can still fight for the truth.

Fry That sounds like a lot of work.

Bill Nye Just cheering us scientists on would help too.

Fry I still sense effort will be involved.

Bill Nye give a lecture.

Objectives

  • 300 Nixonbucks 150 XP

Story[edit | edit source]

Bill Nye I'm about to kick off my tour, but there are still a lot of science deniers protesting me.

The Professor Perhaps your eloquence will make them see reason.

Bill Nye So far all it's done is increase the size of their throwing tomatoes.

The Professor Have you considered colorful charts and sock puppets? That's how I win over my physics students.


Bill Nye Guess what, Hubert? Most of the science deniers have just disappeared! Weird.

The Professor Not weird at all! I used the unlimited resources of the vast socialist-scientist conspiracy to deport them to a secret space prison.

Bill Nye The vast what now?

The Professor Oh dear. It appears I've said too much. Would you mind terribly if I killed you, Bill?
