God Entity: Bender, being God isn't easy. If you do too much, people get dependent on you. And if you do nothing, they lose hope. You have to use a light touch, like a safecracker or a pickpocket.
Bender: Or a guy who burns down a bar for the insurance money.
God Entity: Yes, if you make it look like an electrical thing. When you do things right, people won't be sure you've done anything at all.

"When you do things right people won't be sure you've done anything at all"
14 October 2006 | by (Tel Aviv, Israel) – See all my reviews

After a dogfight against space pirates, Bender accidentally gets drifted into endless space. Understanding that he cannot be saved, he looks for entertainment. Meanwhile, Fry is upset for loosing a friend but doesn't loose hope. While floating through endless space, Bender, to his surprise, encounters tiny organisms attached to his body who call him the metal God. Bender soon learns that being a god is not an easy job, and that everything he does has extreme consequences. This episode has a most entertaining perspective on God. It is similar to the Simpsons episode: "The Simpsons: Treehouse of Horror VII" - "The Genesis Tub" story - where Lisa creates a miniature world and becomes God too. 9 out of 10.
