1[[quoteright:350:]]˛[[caption-width-right:350:"I agreed to be your Vice-President, but I never agreed to be your son."]]˛˛''The Magnificent Three'' is a 3001 political drama written and directed by legendary silent hologram comedian Harold Zoid, and executive produced by Bender Bending Rodriguez.˛˛The plot is about a son (Calculon of ''All My Circuits'' fame) not wanting to follow in his father's (Zoid in his comeback role) footsteps -- that job being President of Earth, and the son is currently the Vice-President. The film also stars Zoid's nephew John A. Zoidberg as the Vice-President's associate Lieutenant Smith.˛˛Despite negative reception upon its premiere (In fact, everyone left the theater before it ended), the film helped garner Zoid an UsefulNotes/AcademyAward for Best Actor in a surprise win.˛----˛˛!!Examples:˛* BigNo: The Vice-President does this after [[spoiler:his father dies, making him the new President.]]˛* [[spoiler:DownerEnding]]: [[spoiler: The President dies, and now the Vice-President has to take his father's job whether he wants to or not.]]˛* FoodSlap: At one point, the Vice-President throws a cup of water onto his father's face.˛* FunnyBackgroundEvent: As seen in the above picture, several scenes have White House staffers doing crazy things in the middle of tense scenes. This was due to Zoid's insistence to add a little comedy to soften the drama.˛* GreyRainOfDepression: The ending.˛* PieInTheFace: Several White House staffers throw pies at each other. This came about due to the reasons states above. Most of the film's budget ended up being spent on pies.˛* TemptingFate: The President, refusing to accept his son's resignation, proclaims "I would sooner die, I would." [[spoiler:He then falls of a ledge and dies.]]
