Crimes of the Hot S05E01 / 4ACV08
As Earth is unable to counter its rising temperature through the usual method (dropping a giant ice cube into the ocean), Al Gore leads an emergency conference in Kyoto, Japan, where Professor Farnsworth claims responsibility for the crisis. It seems love detoured him from observing proper emission standards on his prototype robot, and that could necessitate the destruction of all its "descendants"... including Bender, who resigns himself to having a farewell blowout before being blown up.
