Trivia

Billy West states on the audio commentary that the voice of "God" was based on Vic Perrin, the opening announcer from The Outer Limits. See more »

Goofs

Leela states that the ship is the fastest in the universe so they can never catch up with Bender. Speed doesn't work like that you can always speed up with an engine (up to a friction limit) and Bender is powerless. See more »

Quotes

Malachi: My Lord, the infidels on your back no longer believe in you. They say their prayers go unheeded.
Bender: Of course they go unheeded! How am I supposed to hear prayers coming out of my ass?

"When you do things right people won't be sure you've done anything at all"
14 October 2006 | by 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.
