In 'Bender Gets Made' during the Zuban Cigar heist, Bender says he wants to burn down the PE ship, in order to prove himself. The Don-Bot agrees and the Robot mafia fly away in their ship.

Why the hell did they fly away? How was Bender supposed to get back to earth after torching down the ship? is this a goof, or what?

You make a good point. Come to think of it, how did they expect to keep a gasoline fire going in a vacuum? How do you burn something "down" when it's floating in deep space? And why wasn't the ship depressurized when the robots extracted that boarding tube jammed into the side of its hull? I doubt anyone will ever know or care.

Yes, true. One explanation could be that he is a robot and so he can survive in space. But he isnt a Space Shuttle. So how should he "navigate" back to earth and get through the atmosphere?

They probably couldnt burn the entire ship, but at least the inside.

Could be that the robot mobsters just aren't that bright.

But the whole point of not being able to burn down a ship in space doesnt matter, its the fact they left him

Like in Deep South, Zoidbergs house burnt down underwater from Benders cigar.

This raises that old question of things burning to the ground in "The Simpsons" - I think Matt Groening is a closet pyromaniac and just likes watching things burn or blow up! Witness spaceships in a vacuum and things underwater...!

Yeah... it's sort of a running gag on the Simpsons, with completely inappropriate things exploding/catching fire... Futurama's just carrying on a grand tradition.

in the simpsons, one was where they burned the british flag in lisa's wedding n when there house caught on fire and when the tree caught on fire when bart wanted to play with his truck.........and the list goes on. sometimes, the writers just don't put logic into the making of an episode. later

Yeah that was hilarious when they burnt that brittish flag and then threw compost on it and gave it to that brit and said "enjoy".

Perhaps because the topic was started in 2000?

The reviving of all these old threads has made me sad.

If this was in 2000 then I can add the bee explosion in The Sting to the list of funny things blowing up. *Does so*
