- "Killed? In an atomic blast? No, sir, I'm afraid I don't take much solace in the fact that the implosion trigger functioned perfectly."
- ―Mildred Fry (receiving news that Enos has died)
Mildred Fry was the fiancé to Enos Fry and the mother of Yancy Fry, Sr. She was the mother-in-law of Mrs. Fry and the paternal grandmother of Yancy Fry, Jr. and Philip J. Fry I. She was the grandmother-in-law of Yancy Jr.'s wife and Turanga Leela. She is the maternal-paternal great-grandmother to Philip J. Fry II.
After Enos was killed in a house that turned out to be a test site for an atomic bomb, she was consoled by her grandson who Mildred felt reminded her deeply of Enos (unaware that Philip I was her own grandson) and asked if he would walk her home. Once there she, grieved over her fiancé and immediately began flirting with Philip I, making him uncomfortable. In an effort to distract Mildred, Philip I asks her to make him sugar cookies to cheer her up, but Mildred, refusing to be deterred, rips open the top of her dress and thrust her bra covered breasts at him after seductively asking "How about these cookies, sugar?".
Philip I was hesitant about having sex with Mildred but got over it, incorrectly reasoning that since he still existed and Enos was dead, Mildred wasn't actually his grandmother. Before he could finish his sentence Mildred quickly kissed him and the two made passionate love on the couch which soon moved to the bedroom. As a result of sleeping with Mildred, Philip I conceived his father and became his own grandfather.
The next morning Philip I noticed that Mildred started acting like his own grandmother in his own time, but was out of place as in the 1940s she was an attractive, beautiful and very sexy young woman. She suddenly wore reading glasses and was hard of hearing. It was then that Philip I realized that Mildred was in fact his grandmother and in sleeping with her it made him his own grandfather.
Philip I's affair with Mildred was a likely reference to a parody country song I'm My Own Grandpa, where the singer recounts a complex family tree only to say at the end he somehow married his own widowed grandmother. Nibbler was also aware of what Philip I did to Mildred and commented in "The Why Of Fry" that "the nasty from the past-y" cost him the delta brain wave and thus, his born immunity to the Brainspawn.

- The food Mildred serves in her job as a waitress includes chilli dogs, and a pie with a fried egg on top. It does not include mead, paella, injections of femi-slim and types of Soylent Green, soylent orange and soylent coleslaw (as requested by Hubert and Leela).
- It is never explained why Mildred aged over just one night as the Planet Express crew were too distracted by the incest and had not mentioned Mildred's aging predicament, but it may be due to the timeline changing. It is possible that due to a distortion in the space-time continuum that only Philip I perceived her this way. It is also possible that her rapid aging was simply a figment of Philip I's imagination.
- It would seem that Yancy Sr. takes more after his mother as both of his fathers (Enos and time travelling son Philip I) both possess orange hair while Mildred has brunette hair, a trait that was passed down to her son.
- Because of her and Philip I's affair, all direct members of their family are now descendants (minus Mildred and Mrs. Fry) of Philip I but most of them (Yancy Fry Sr. & Yancy Fry Jr., Philip J. Fry II, Floyd Farnsworth, Professor Hubert J. Farnsworth, Cubert J. Farnsworth, and Igner) do not suffer from the lack of delta brainwave like Philip I does.
- As another result of her and Philip I's affair, Yancy Fry Sr. is also his own grandfather, due to Philip I being both his son and father.
- Mildred and Philip I's affair also caused the Philip I to be both Professor Farnsworth's distant uncle, as well as his distant grandfather. This is because Farnsworth is a distant grandson to Yancy Fry Jr, and Philip I is both Yancy Fry Jr's brother, and his grandfather.
- In many episodes where Mildred and Philip I's affair is mentioned, Philip I has a different reaction to the encounter. There is one moment where he told the Nibblonians that he is proud of doing "the nasty from the past-y" with his grandmother. The second is when the professor mentions the benefits the Forwards Time Machine has to offer such as stopping oneself from sleeping with his own grandmother and Philip I stating that he wouldn't do that again.
