Quotes

Philip J. Fry: Looking for God. That's important, yeah. But you know what might be a treat for everyone? If you let me use the telescope to look for my friend Bender.
Monk #1: I don't know what to say, other than... absolutely not! Sure, your loss is a tragedy, but our work...

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