ok so in fear of a bot planet, bender gets taken to (what i assume is jail) for working with humans. But later he becoms a celebrity after telling them he killed a million billion humans. How can he have the ability to kill that many humans (even though he was lying) but still work with some. wouldn't he just have killed his "co-workers" and then just come to chapek 9 himself? maybe the "incompitent robot elders" didn't use their logic routine ? any other explanations?

The simplest explanation: Bender lied.  We all know Bender is usually quite capable of over-torquing the truth when his ass is on the line.  My guess would have been that he downplayed the working realtionship he had with humans, perhaps relegating them to sevants or pets (which would be no stretch of character, actually).  After all, the only thing better than killing humans is exploiting them.  Perhaps the Capekians found it ironic that a device intended to serve man could enslave his or her or its own masters.  As we've also seen, the Capekians sentenced Fry and Leela to robot-like labor rather than simply killing them.

i like ure explanation DrThunder    But here is another one: about sentencing them to "robot like chores" the judge says that they are to perform tasks like robots do on earth. now we know it was founded by robot seperatists from earth, but are we to assume NO robots from the any where in the universe created by any of the many other aliens want to rebel. and that none of the robots that do rebel go to chapek 9? i mean how can he sentence them to perform tasks as robots do on earth.....why not do tasks as the robots on omicron persiae 8 do?   wouldn't that lead to some funny tasks the judge makes them do!?!?    any ideas? (maybe on some funny tasks lur would want them to do?)


ALSO i dont know if anyone has suggested this....but as opposed to having a goof thread why dont we have threads for every episode and then we can post findings in each one about goofs and such. that way we can be more organized and make sure there are no repeats??

This may be a silly question, but ARE there robots on planets other than Earth (and Kapek 9)?

OK, there are a few on the Moon, but that orbits Earth.  I can't recall any on Omicron Persei 8 (or as I call it, The OP), nor on Nibbler's homeworld, nor Zoidberg's homeworld, nor the Giant Brains' culture (except for the Huge Brain, which I suggest doesn't count as a robot.)  Nor on the Brain Balls' planet, nor Trisol, nor that high-gravity planet, nor that Egyptian planet -- well, can any of you with less short-term memory difficulties suggest a planet outside the Solar System that does rely on robots the way Earth does?  (Parallel universes don't count.)

Earth's reliance on robots would thus explain why Bender, forced into presumed subservience, would be hailed as a rebel on Kapek 9.  And why Earth's treatment of robots was singled out as punishment.

Later:  Of course, there are the Killbots.  But who said they weren't built on Earth, or by Earth in some self-reproductive folly?

what about women of amazonia......fembot controlling the femputer. said she left because her world was a world run by a manbot controlling a manputer....thats a whole world of bots that are not from chapek 9 (because we know C9 isn't controlled by a manputer)

We don't know it's a whole world of robots.  After all Amazonia was ruled by a femputer who was really just the entire population of fembots (that we know of).

OK, BBR, you have a point.  Though Bea Arthur -- I mean, the Amazonian fembot -- was the only robot on Amazonia, she did claim to come from a manbot's manputer's world.

But (especially if you've see the forbidden St*r Tr*k episodes), you'll know that just because a manputer (or a manbot impersonating a manputer) controls a world, does not mean that the entire population is robotic.

You're weakening my "Earthicans only use robots" theory.  Darn you.  Still, a fembot or manbot here or there might well have been immigrants from Earth.  Ha ha!  Now what say ye?

(Oh, I forgot.  Robots don't say "ye", according to Hermes.)
