Brannigan, Begin Again is the second episode of production Season Two and the sixth episode of broadcast Season Two of Futurama. It originally aired in North America on November 28, 1999.

Plot Edit

The Planet Express crew arrives at the new Democratic Order of Planets headquarters in orbit around the Neutral Planet, in order to deliver the over-sized scissors for the ribbon-cutting ceremony. Zapp Brannigan interrogates them, thinking they are assassins going after the yarn people of Nylar IV. He shortly thereafter destroys the entire station by attempting to use the Nimbus' laser to cut the ribbon.

At the former DOOP headquarters in Weehawken, New New Jersey Brannigan is court-martialed. The prosecution, Hyper-Chicken, loses the case until Leela testifies. Brannigan and Kif Kroker are stripped of their titles and dismissed from DOOP service, the latter being dismissed after Brannigan unjustly points to him as the true guilty party. Unable to find employment, the pair wander the streets until they finally arrive at the Planet Express building. Leela tries to turn them away, but Professor Farnsworth decides hiring Brannigan would be good for the company's public image.

The augmented crew is sent to deliver pillows to a hotel on Stumbos IV, a high-gravity planet. Despite Leela's order to deliver one at a time, Fry, Bender, and Zapp decide to deliver all the pillows at once, which in the intense gravity causes the hover dolly to collapse. As punishment, Leela orders them to deliver the pillows by hand, which causes resentment among the crew.

Fry, Bender, and Zapp stage a mutiny against Leela, and lock her in the 'laundry brig'. Brannigan decides to attack the Neutral Planet, thinking this will make him a hero and get him reinstated as a DOOP captain. When Fry and Bender discover the plan is a suicide mission, they free Leela; and she retakes command.

After returning to Earth, Leela, wanting DOOP to reinstate him and out of her life, testifies that Brannigan was an amazing hero.

At the end, while Fry and Bender are cleaning the Planet Express ship, they apologize to Leela and she decides to let them take a break knowing they appreciate her, but the professor overules this so the three decide to mutiny against him.
