Snail Fail is one of the goals in Futurama: Worlds of Tomorrow. It is the first main goal of the Island of Lost Bots event.
- Bender smuggles some snails.

Um, Bender, I don't want to worry me, but you seem to have snails crawling all over you.
Yep. I spent the weekend on a tropical island planet. Little buggers must've hitched a ride in my chest compartment, because I'm so great.
Okay, but be careful. What if they escape into the wild and cause some kind of environmental catastrophe like I'm always seeing movies about?
Relax. There's absolutely no chance that's gonna happen.
Because it already did.
Bender, you idiot! You smuggled non-native snails across planetary lines, and now they're sliming up the entire city!
Don't blame me!
But you're completely responsible! Why shouldn't I blame you?
Because it's a waste of time. I've never taken responsibility for anything, and if I ever do, I promise you it's not going to involve snails.
- The Professor has an idea.

Professor, help! I was relaxing in the park when I was attacked by a horde of those alien snails! I tried to run away, but I was asleep.
When I woke up, I was covered in snail goop and my skin was dissolving! Fortunately I licked it off before it did much damage.
Just as I feared. The snails are reacting to the hostile Earth environment by turning hostile themselves!
There's too many of them to destroy. We'll have to fool them into thinking they're in their natural habitat by decorating the city with fixtures from their homeworld.
That's the dumbest idea I ever heard! And that's coming from a guy who once licked corrosive snail goop off his own body!
You know that planet where you spent your tropical island getaway? The Professor says we have to go there and bring back the tropical island stuff.
I'm not going back there to do work stuff! It's called a tropical island getaway for a reason!
The reason is, I had to get away fast before the tropical island cops caught me.
- Bender considers skipping town.

Bender, why aren't you helping make New New York a tropical island paradise?
I don't have time. I'm taking another vacation, to a place where you and your precious technology can't strip the land of its natural beauty, because it doesn't have any.
Uh-huh. What exit?
What happened to your Jersey vacation?
I decided to be selfless for once and help you fetch tropical stuff to decorate New New York.
Did you really decide to be selfless, or is it because I put a stop on your paycheck?
It has nothing to do with the stupid stop on my stupid paycheck, which is stupid, by the way.
- Bender and Fry visit an island getaway.

Hey Fry! Wanna vacation on the tropical island planet? You can load the ship with palm trees while I sip on a coconut!
That doesn't sound like a vacation. It sounds like work!
That's because in the 31st Century, we've redefined the word "work" to mean "sipping coconuts on the beach". And "vacation" means "doing manual labor while your robot pal cheers you on".
You mean I've been on vacation ever since I came to the future?
Yep. And as long as I'm your pal, you'll never work a day in your life.
Wow, this tropical island planet place is beautiful! But maybe you shouldn't be throwing your beer bottles everywhere.
No, see, the only way I could get permission to take their trees and stuff was by saying it's part of a cultural exchange program with New New York.
So basically we have to make this place look like a dump.
Which reminds me -- if you could find a mattress, urinate on it and leave it on the sidewalk, it'd be a big help.
Already taken care of, my friend.
- Amy blames Bender for the snails.

Thanks to you, I had to cancel a date with Kif to help get rid of those stupid rampaging snails!
Isn't Kif some kind of snail himself?
For your information, he's not a mollusc, he's more of an amphibian.
Huh. Funny, I thought amphibians had skeletons.
... You're right! Snail-boy's got some explaining to do!
Tell me the truth, Kif: Are you a mollusc or an amphibian?
Umm... that is...
I'm sorry, Amy! Yes, I'm a mollusc, but DOOP had an official no-invertebrate policy, so I had to pass as an amphibian! I've been living a lie!
But your homeworld is called Amphibios 9!
The lie I've been living is a really huge lie!
- Professor makes fun of Bender.

Everyone look at Bender, the robot who caused the New New York snail infestation! Shame, Bender, shame!
Like you're one to talk. You caused the Hypnowaves!
That crisis was so 3017. Snails are the sexy new 3018 crisis!
Oh, well, as long as it's sexy, I'll take full credit.
Why did you take that vacation to the tropical island planet in the first place?
I deserved it! You kept assigning me delivery work and maintenance chores!
But you didn't do them!
Damn right! And after the grueling effort it took to shirk my responsibilities I needed a vacation!
- The snails prevail.

Turning New New York into a tropical paradise seems to have calmed the snails down. Now you just have to figure out how to get rid of them.
And how do you suggest I do that? Wear some snail cologne and make myself irresistible to snails so all the snails crawl into my chest and I fly them back to the tropical island planet?
Yeah, that might work.
Great. Every time I think I'm out of the cologne-designing business, they keep PULLING ME BACK IN!
Thanks to me, the snail problem has now been solved!
Scruffy's gonna miss them little gastropods. Their corrosive goop was the only thing I ever found that could clean the rust stains out the terlet.
Well, I guess we'll all miss them in our own way.
No, you'll all be missing 'em my way a week from now when you check your terlets.
