Peaceful Invasion is one of the goals in Futurama: Worlds of Tomorrow.
Lrrr tries a new approach.

50 75 I have decided to change tactics. Rather than conquer you by brute force, I shall persuade you to surrender with sweet words.
Okay, give it a try.
Okay, okay! Your terrifyingly sweet words convinced me!
I thought you were trying not to use brute force and intimidation!
Brandishing a raygun is considered brute force and intimidation?
Except in parts of Texas, where it's considered Saturday.
Lrrr asks nicely.

50 75 Peace officer! I demand your help as I politely persuade your planet to surrender peacefully!
I believe you call it "using the carrot instead of the stick".
Instead of the STICK? Are you nuts, man? I suggest you start lookin' for one blunt, heavy carrot.
Here, lemme show you what I got in the squad car.
I gotta say, that's one badass cape you're rockin'. Where can I get one like that?
This is the royal Omicronian cape, handed down from father to son for generations of rulers!
Can I try it on?
Asking to try it on is how Omicronian rulers traditionally overthrow their fathers!
Lrrr tries to recruit Scruffy.

50 75 Earthican custodial specialist! I invite you to quit your job and serve your Omicronian masters!
Hmm. What kinda boiler room setup you got?
Our boilers run pressurized chlorine at 2500 degrees, and vent directly into the custodial quarters.
Scruffy don't care. What I meant was, does this boiler room got porn and a cot?
It's a boiler room, isn't it?
Scruffy's quittin'. You didn't tell me your boiler-room porn was all Omicronian.
You do not appreciate the allure of the nude Omicronian female?
I do not. Any Omicronian lady who'd take off her clothes for money is disgusting.
However -- and Scruffy don't claim to understand his new feelings -- if you know any nice unspoilt Omicronian girls, I'd like to meet 'em.
Lrrr gives up his peaceful approach.
Lrrr Vow to Rule the Universe (4h 0m 0s) Have Bachelor Fry Dole Out Advice ()
50 75 I believe this peaceful persuasion approach to Earth conquest is going nowhere!
If it doesn't feel right, then you shouldn't do it.
You are advocating that I return to violent attacks against Earth?
Tell me again why I'm consulting you about how to conquer your planet?
Having failed to convince you to surrender, I shall now return to terror, destruction and mayhem -- the "big three" of planetary invasions.
Wouldn't it be a good idea to try some more modern methods of conquest? Like spreading fake news on social media?
And THEN invading? That usually works.
