Plot[]

Part 1 - "The Salmon"[]

Salmon return to the ocean to feed and frolic. Fry (in salmon form) meets salmon Leela. They grow up with each other and decide that they should mate with each other when they return. In competition with Zapp, Fry overcomes his instincts to return to his own home-stream and goes to Leela fish's river. They mate and die.

Part 2 - "The Pinta Island Tortoise"[]

On the Galapagos Islands, Zoidberg is a Blue-Footed Booby and Professor Farnsworth is depicted as a near-extinct Pinta Island Tortoise, lonely and desperately trying to find the only mate of his sub-species on the island. The birds (Fry, Leela, Hermes, and Amy) convince the old tortoise to make the long trip across the island to meet his only possible mate (Mom). Bender-iguana accompanies them. Amy is eaten by a Sal-snake, but once the remaining 5 arrive, the Professor-turtle mistakes a rock for Mom and begins to mate with it. Mom-turtle walks up, enraged at what she sees, pushes the rock over a ledge and onto the beach. They mate, Mom lays 3 eggs and they go off separately to die. Once hatched, the 3 new Pinta Island Tortoises (Walt, Larry, & Igner) and are immediately crushed by the rock that their mother pushed, making the species extinct.

Part 3 - "The Elephant Seal"[]

Beach master (Bender) is the dominant male of a group of Elephant Seals. Leela and Amy (among others) are females in Beach master's harem, and Fry, Professor Farnsworth, Kif, Hermes, and Randy are the beta-males, who have no chance to mate while in direct competition with Beach master. Scruffy the Walrus apparently hangs out with the beta-male elephant seals. Professor-seal tells the other beta-males that he once was able to mate with a female by sneaking past Beach master while he was mating with the Professor's mother and finding a mate. Kif-seal decides to try this, so after Beach master rolls over onto all the children and tells the women to repopulate with him, Kif brings Amy-seal a delicious treat from the ocean floor. As she's explaining that Beach master will kill Kif-seal and agreeing to his request to mate, Beach master notices the beta talking to a female and angrily saunters over. Kif-seal bravely challenges Beach master, but is crushed in the fight, which Beach master carries on long past when Kif-seal is dead and into the night. The next year new children have been born and Bender-Beach master proclaims that it's a new litter spawned by him, despite the fact that they look almost exactly like Fry, Hermes, Randy, and the Professor.
