When the Planet Express ship gets a selectable personality upgrade, Bender chooses one and falls in love... but too briefly.
Did You Know?
At the end of the climactic chase that takes place within the ship's circuitry, Bender (as an electron) races through a diode against the direction marked on it and is unable to go back the way he came, cornering him where the ship can catch him. This is more or less an accurate example of how diodes work. The arrows marked on diodes (and their representations on schematic diagrams) actually point *in the opposite* direction to how the electrons move as the people who originally devised the symbols for electronic components were mistaken about which way electricity flowed. This convention held even after scientists learned the electricity moves from negative to positive, and not positive to negative as originally thought, and today, schematic diagrams still depict the electricity moving in the wrong way.

Wow! Letters like 'U' and 'R' can stand for words, like 'you' and 'are.'
