The pet-store clerk is the clerk at Joe's Ark Pet Store. [2ACV04] When Fry wanted to buy Leela an Xmas present in 3000, he went to Joe's Ark Pet Store to buy her an animal. The pet-store clerk suggested Fry the Electric Snail, his personal favourite, but Fry thought it was a stupid animal. He could either buy one $500 parrot or five hundred Stink Lizards, which cost a dollar each. He decided to get the parrot, and the clerk sold it to him.
Fry: Just give me your best animal.
Pet-store clerk: Best? Well, that's a matter of opinion. I personally like the electric snail.
