Now I have to preface this by saying I haven't seen all the epsiodes (I missed a lot from seasons 3 and 4) so it may turn out to be a really stupid question... but I was just re-watching The Devil's Hands are Idle Playthings and I noticed that the apartment looked very different. When Fry moved in, it was a small room with a door to a much larger one, but in this epsiode, we see a hallway with two doors in it, one of which Bender comes out of and the other leading into Fry's room. Did I miss an episode where they moved, or was this a mistake?

For some reason I kept thinking that they were in the Planet Express building which kept me from noticing this on other watchings, but as far as I know they don't have rooms there.

They could have done some remodeling within the past three years they lived there...

Bringing me to something weird in Cyber-House Rules. Why didn't that place look like their apartment? Maybe it was all the bunkbeds, but it looked very different from the Robot Arms Apt. room they share.

Speaking of their apartment, I noticed it has become full of Bender's stuff. If you watch the 'stealing' scene in BSNBAOTV, there's barely any walking room in there!

Yeah, just pointing out odd little flaws here and there, don't know if they were intentional.

Ok. at first fry lived in the planet express building, but then he moved to bender's apartment. Then they looked for a new place and Fry lived there for a while but as always, by the end of the episode it was back to normal. They still live in the Robot arms apartments. With the small room when you go in and the larger room with a big window. But, they have doors going off the side of the big room that change with the theme of the episode. Hope that is a good explination.

Yeah, I saw "I, Roomate" so I know the story of how they got there, but I wasn't sure if the scene in the final epsiode was supposed to be in their apartment or somewhere else. If they still live in the same place, I suppose it just looks very different. I remembered Fry living in the big room and Bender living in the entryway, but I might remember it wrong. I was just wondering if I missed something.   smile

EDIT: And I just realized that later on in the episode they specifically show the Robot Arms building and then cut to a shot of Fry playing the holophoner. Whoops.  red face

Just curious, why do robots need such huge closets?
Hostages?

Well if other robots loot as much as Bender I would see how it'd come in handy!

They change rooms around on the show all the time... In Planet Express, the ship, and Bending Arms Apt...

what i'd like to know about bender's apartment is that if the doors in the hallway are like 12 feet apart, how is bender's closet 20 feet across with closets on both sides?

Pehaps Bender got some sort of deluxe closet deal because he figured he'd be doing a lot of looting.

Maybe that's what the closets are for.  Poker games. 

Yeah, overall, the architecture of Robot Arms is as elusive as that of the Planet Express Ship.  As I remember it, the hallway in Fry & Bender's apartment appeared fairly early on after "I, Roommate," and mostly stayed, but the setup in "Cyber House Rules" was all new.

In both HHRHGB and TCHR, the door to the apartment leads straight to the closest and Bender's room disappears. Hmm.  hmpf

He's got a space displacer that displaces space so that more space can fit in less room, because it displaces space...

That and a wizard writer did it!
