Beginning Caption at Bottom: If not completely satisfied…
begins with the Planet Express crew at the table, Prof. Farnsworth
reading a newspaper. Everyone patiently waits, except for Bender, for
the Prof. to finish reading it. Then soon…
Aren't you almost done old man?
FARNSWORTH: What? Oh, you all are here. Why don't you go to the
sun and buy me a souvenir.
We'll need money. Let me hold on to it.
I want to see what has his attention so much. He usually falls asleep
during anything I say.
Professor suddenly collapses on the
FRY: Well it's obvious why. You're boring!
That is not tr….
Soon Fry also falls asleep. Leela
decides to ignore everyone and read the article.
Bender falls asleep. Leela gets sick of this and kicks Fry and punches Bender.
LEELA: Bender, this is something
you might be interested in!
What? Is there a new rich person in town I can mug?
No read this article.
Hey look! The Mayor is allowing a robot to be mayor for a week! That
could be ME! I can imagine it now…
Bender dreams of a fiery place, him as everyone's leader. A wonderful place
where he forces manual labor on people for no reason. Bender soon snaps out of
his dream back into reality. Bender leaves to go put his name in for the contest.
He soon gets to the line and is at the end. By the time he gets to the top of
the line, it is midnight and no one is there. Bender thinks of a devious plot
to win. He inserts 100 pieces of printing paper in his compartment and closes
it. His compartment sliced each piece into 10 slips. They all print Bender's name
onto it and he prints them out of his mouth into the box.
The next day the mayor calls a meeting too pull out a name from the box.
BENDER: Ok, now if I don't win, I'll just
threaten the "new" mayor.
And the winner is…. Flexo!
In your face Bender! Maybe if you put it in as much as I did…
Congratulations! And don't any of you robots count on another
one of these soon!
So am I mayor right now?
Flexo then leaves into the mayor's
FLEXO: Well, I am mayor now. I wonder what I should
Flexo soon notices a picture of him being dragged
away by the cops. He remembers Bender getting him arrested and grows
FLEXO: Well, as mayor I think I'll need a deputy
Flexo goes all the way to Robot Hell, and starts
an interesting conversation with the Robot Devil.
You want ME to be your deputy mayor?
DEVIL: Well, with an opportunity like this I guess I could let go of
the first 32 claims against you to keep you here forever.
What about the other 52?
DEVIL: I'm a robot, not a miracle worker.
Ok I have one job for you to do as deputy mayor.
DEVIL: I have a few hours before my favorite soap opera is on. What
The scene cuts to 3:00 in the morning at Fry and Bender's apartment. Fry has
fallen asleep in front of the T.V. and Bender is in his closet-like room. It then
cuts to the outside wall where you see the Robot Devil climbing up the wall with
his claw-like hands. He gets to the window and uses one of his fingers to cut
a circle through the window (like you see in many spy movies), and jumps through,
knocking over 2 bookcases, which fall toward the volume button on the TV causing
the volume to rise constantly. The Robot Devil hid behind a very small plant,
and his upper body was still visible when Fry was awake. He looked around the
place and said,
FRY: Bender go back offline or whatever…
DEVIL: Uh… sure buddy whatever you say.
Fry soon falls
back to sleep.
ROBOT DEVIL: Moron.
The Robot Devil
opens Bender's door and grabs him. Bender wakes up and is
shocked, but the Robot Devil give him a plug-in that makes him numb.
The Robot Devil starts to walk away, but then Fry, still half-awake
half-asleep, starts to say something.
Bender, are you asleep?
DEVIL: Uh, of course Fry! Why do you ask?
I was going to take one of your beers and if you were awake you would
have broken my hand.
WHAT!? You were going to take one of my beers? I'LL KILL
Suddenly Bender's anger at Fry disables the plug-in
and runs toward Fry choking him constantly. The Robot Devil was in no
hurry and was drinking one of Bender's beers laughing at Fry.
Bender too busy choking Fry didn't notice. Fry, meanwhile woke
entirely when Bender started choking him, and saw the Robot Devil
drinking the beer.
FRY: Bender, he's drinking one of
Why I'll kill you too!
Bender starts to approach the Robot Devil but then he pulls out a shocking
stick and shocks Bender, causing him to go offline. Fry watched Bender get shocked
and started to run towards the Robot Devil, but it was too late because the Robot
Devil already grabbed Bender and jumped out the window sliding down the rope that
was there before. Fry just watched and thought to make the best of a bad situation.
FRY: Well, since Bender isn't
here to drink these beers, I might as well drink them for him before
they get cold.
The scene cuts to the next day at the Planet
Express building, Fry trying to explain to everyone what happened to
LEELA: Wow, so you had Bender's beers? By the
time Bender gets back you better have all your hospital insurance
Leela, you are missing the whole point of the idea. Bender was
captured by the Robot Devil.
Fine, but if you don't have your insurance paid up, I'll
probably said I told you so.
FARNSWORTH: Well I may be old, but it doesn't mean that I don't
know a clue when I see it.
was staring at the Professor as if waiting for a clue.
FARNSWORTH: What do you all want now?
There is a thirteen percent chance that you didn't pay them
their rightful pay ever, and an Eighty-seven percent chance they are
waiting for your clue.
FARNSWORTH: Leave me alone! Just because I am old doesn't mean
I don't know a good clue when I see it!
professor falls asleep in his chair leaning back, his newspaper lying
on top of him.
FRY: The professor is repeating himself again.
HERMES: We all see that, mon. Not all of us are morons!
at Hermes blankly.
HERMES: Ok I'M not a moron.
Let's get back on the case at hand. Where is Bender?
It's in the newspaper again, maybe?
HERMES: Good idea, mon!
reaches over to Hermes and slaps him in the face.
Right, I mean, get away you filthy stink bug!!
There now everything is back to normal.
Bender is still gone you idiot!
Why won't anyone listen to my ideas?
I got an idea! Let's look in the newspaper! It might be there
ALL EXCEPT ZOIDBERG: Hurray! Good idea, mon. Great idea!
starts crying and runs out of the room. No one notices and keeps
congratulating Fry on his (most likely) first idea ever. Amy grabs
the newspaper and searches for any clue Fry thought could be in the
AMY: Hey, I think I found a clue!
What is it?
Didn't you say that it was the Robot Devil who captured
Well take a look at this.
Amy tosses the newspaper at Fry and
everyone gathers around him, including Amy. Everyone instantly sees
the clue Amy spotted.
FRY: Wow, this clue puts everything into
Yes indeed mon.
Everyone is staring at the front of the
newspaper, at a picture with Flexo at the front of city hall. In the
background you can see the Robot Devil with his arms crossed, wearing
a hat that says Deputy Mayor. Everyone starts to read the article
Yesterday morning the mayor of New New York announced the winner of the
contest we told you about in the previous issue. He announced that the winner
of the contest for "Mayor for a Week" is Flexo, a Bending unit. Flexo decided
that if he was going to be mayor for a week, he needs a deputy mayor. He picked
the Robot Devil out of all the robots in New New York, and thinks that this town
needs change. Coming from a bending unit that usually isn't a good thing. Recently
re-divorced from his ex-wife Angelene, we got a statement from Flexo. "When I
am done with this town, there will be two Robot Hells." Well that appears to be
pretty unfortunate, seeing how the rules stated that they can not be taken out
of office until the week is up.
looks at everyone else and exchange looks.
LEELA: We must save
Bender and stop Flexo.
I second that.
The professor wakes up after hearing everyone
talk like this.
PROF. FARNSWORTH: Or maybe instead of stopping
him, we should just hide out on Mars for a week.
I'm already calling for a ride out of here.
Amy dials a
number on her cell phone.
AMY: Hello? I'd like a cab to
Well, I for one will not let Flexo push us around for a week.
PROF. FARNSWORTH: I already suggested Mars, what do you want now?
Leela, you are the only one who wants to go get Bender.
punches Fry in the shoulder in an attempt to get him to go with
FRY: Oh, nice try, but that gives me even MORE reason to
Leela grabs Fry by the ear and walks out of the room.
The scene cuts to Bender strapped to a chair and his eyes open. .
BENDER: Where am I? Is anyone there? HELP!!!
the Robot Devil walk into the room.
BENDER: Why did you
capture me? What did I do to you?
FLEXO: If it weren't for you, I would still be married to my wife.
DEVIL: And I would have one more person in Robot Hell!
Ok, ok, I see the Robot Devil's problem, but how is it my fault
you got divorced Flexo?
She felt bad that you still loved her, and divorced me for that
Ok, but now that we all understand each other, why don't you
let me go, and we all live in peace and harmony.
DEVIL: You know peace and harmony isn't my thing, just like I
know its not your thing.
So you can't blame me for trying.
Actually, I can. I am the mayor for a week. So you are wrong.
scene cuts to Fry and Leela outside the mayor's building. It is
around midnight and Leela is climbing to the top of the building. Fry
didn't find that the easiest way to get in so he walked in the
front door. Leela, meanwhile, made it to the top of the building and
climbed down a ventilation shaft. She followed the shaft to the first
floor where Fry was. When she got there, she noticed when Fry walked
through the front door, he got captured by the security guards. She
was looking down, planning to follow them to Flexo.
GUARD #1: Aww, man what is that smell? You put your deodorant on this
morning didn't you?
GUARD #2: Yeah, maybe it is this guy we grabbed?
Nope, but I recognize the smell. It smells like a good friend of
mine. Her name is…
Leela was listening the whole time
and then crashed out of the ventilation shaft.
previous statement) LEELA!
Leela kicks the two security
guards, knocking them unconscious. She hits Fry a couple times.
What was that for?
I heard you saying that I smelled bad.
scene cuts back to Bender.
BENDER: Come on. Let's join
hands and sing a little song I made up called Love.
I happen to know you wouldn't write something like that.
and Leela burst into the room and the Robot Devil and Flexo are
FLEXO: How did you find us?
I thought this was the ladies room.
DEVIL: Then why did Fry come in here?
While the devil was saying this, Fry was putting a finger to his mouth as to
tell him to shut up. Leela turns around at the Robot Devil's statement. Fry makes
a kind of sorrowful smile and Leela hits him again.
I think we can all understand each other. Give us Bender.
Why should we?
DEVIL: I have encountered Leela before. You don't want to pick
a fight with her. Trust me.
Fine, you can take Bender, but I will still be the mayor for the rest
of the week.
Fry, Bender, and Leela give each other glances of evilness. They walked toward
Flexo and the Robot Devil. You see the shadows of Fry, Bender, and Leela over
the cowering bodies of Flexo and the Robot Devil.
The scene cuts to outer space near the earth and you see the Planet Express
ship land on Neptune. They drop of a rather large crate and swerve back to earth.
The crate rattles and out pops the Robot Devil and Flexo tied together, back-to-back.
FLEXO: Well, this is just great.
ROBOT DEVIL: You had to have me as your deputy mayor and had to capture Bender,
Well, I couldn't think of anyone better for either an evil deed
or kidnapping someone.
The scene cuts (yet again) to the
Planet Express building and they are talking inside at the table.
ZOIDBERG: Everything is back to normal. Now Bender, do you
have any food after being captured?
No, you stupid lobster! Don't make me cook you!
puts on his chef hat and chases Zoidberg into the hallway.
Well, Flexo isn't mayor, we have Bender back and everything is
The important thing is that I had one of Bender's beers and
lived to tell the tale.
Bender walks into the room staring
angrily at Fry.
BENDER: Don't think I haven't
forgotten about that! I'll kill you yet!
Bender starts choking Fry, and then is cut to the credits.
