No, the bracelet was only 93 percent as lovely as her. I think he really did love her.

Maybe if Bender and the Countess had stayed together, Bender would either go straight, or maybe he would brainwash the Countess and they would be like robot versions of Bonnie and Clyde. 

Either way, I think Bender loved her.

He would have eventually gotten bored of her, as he does with everything and everyone else. Remember in Love and Rocket he said he can get bored with things much quicker than humans.

He may have tried to get her back at sometime when he nothing else to do, but it would be nothing more than temporary

No.  He'd have loved her like he loves Mom; so much he'd actually spend money to buy her stuff. 

Of course, he would keep gambling, stealing and cheating, but he'd give up the floozybots and just concentrate on pimping them for profit.

Na, I'm just pullin' ya leg.  wink Actually I agree with Shiny completely. Now here's a dilemma: The professor invents a device that can completely turn a black hole inside out. The problem is, it can only be used once, due to in being powered by a one-of-a-kind isotope of Unbitriquadpenthexseptoctenni llium. Fry wants to reverse the Tempest black hole, and Bender wants the Countess back. Of course, neither of them admit wanting to do any of those things. So the showdown begins...

Also, I bet on Fry.

Also, Bender will probably win.

Also, but I want Fry to win.

Also, I'm ranting.

Oh, the _Tempus_ (as in "time" ) Nebula.  The Tempest Nebula sounds like something that's located in the Galaxy of Terror.  Of course, it's just a name.... Off you go.  Pleasant trip!

I tend to think that Bender would have dumped the Countess, had she survived the tragic romance, for the same reason noted above by Turanga A-- he can get bored of things much more quickly than we humans.  However, it's possible -- slightly -- that the Countess would be to Bender as Leela is to Fry.  A redeeming influence that prompts the character to act politely, kindly, and with honor, and that --

Whoa!  What am I saying?  Bender polite, kind and honorable?  What parallel universe have I been smoking in?  Not even the Countess could counteract Bender's nasty programming -- at least, not for more than a few moments.  Otherwise, we'd have "nice Bender", and oy, would that be dull!

I think he would just 'mellow' in the women department. I think it would work for him to contuniue with his old ways sans dating floozies.

Given Bender's ease at getting over her, I don't think that their relationship would have lasted longer than the time required for Bender to strip her mansion of all saleable assets.

Edit: Non-fake ones, of course.

Pretty good point there, Shiny.  He could do what he's done on previous episodes, saying something like:

BENDER:  I'll never forget her.  She haunts me each minute with so many painful memories.  *presses button inside chest*  *whirr....beep!* And now they're all gone.

I shall NEVER admit that, young man, at least not in public!  And as for the Unfortunate Incident in my past, it's an utter lie.  I was never there, nobody saw me, you can't prove a thing and the sheep are lying. 

Ahem.

So wait a sec...are you saying only lesbians could want Fry and Leela to get married?  That's an interesting premise...not sure what it's based on.

Or perhaps the "fellow" who is so concerned with gender didn't bother noting mine?    wink

Actually, it's not surprising to see a little gender confusion, after all this is an alleged "guy" who picked a VERY feminine avatar.  I guess "he's" still just a little unsure about himself....

So....which part of "J/K" is giving you trouble (or don't you know it means "Just Kidding" )?

Lemme elaborate...I am not a gay man, or a straight man (except sometimes in comedy routines). Also, I've never even been to Scotland. That is how I know the sheep are lying.

And based on your post, I think I know why you sound so familiar. 

Lemme see, obsessed with Leela and hot girls in skimpy outfits, sexist, questioning the orientation of others not similarly obsessed, prone to Malapropism....

Admit it - You're Zapp Brannigan, aren't you?

Wait a sec.... Wait a second....

YAWWWN!

News flash:  Morbo says, "Several PEEL folks (including TomAllen) are homosexual.  They are sooooo bored by the tangent this Countess/Bender thread has taken.  They also like kittens, but kittens give Morbo gas."

Also, Leela and Amy agree -- Pedro has to be a guy.  Why?  Cause he doesn't know what a period is.  smile

(Ba-dum-tum.)  That's pure Zoidberg.  Why isn't anyone laughing?  Oh, right.  Because that's pure Zoidberg.

Linda says, "Please don't anger Morbo.  Ha-ha, ha ha ha ha!  But in lighter news, Futurama fans discuss the death of the Countess.  No Shippers survived.  Ho-ho!  Takes all kinds, doesn't it, Morbo?"

Finally, a point:  Could the Countess somehow have survived the black hole?  (It is the future, after all.)  If so, what does Bender say when she shows up at his and Fry's apartment?

Sure, you can remove things from a black hole. All you need to do is increase the speed of light like the scientists did in 2208. Just do it until the event horizon shrinks down to the surface of the hole. Now, when you increase the speed of light, the power of your engines should increase. That is, the energy output will increase, you know, the whole E=mc^2 thing, c being the speed of light. So, with your more powerful engines, you swoop in, grab what you want, and swoop out. When you're done, restore the speed of light to it's norm. However, reassembling from their component subatomic particles whatever and whoever you picked up is your own concern. Also your concern is the restoring of the thermonuclear reactions in every star in the universe. Good luck!...

But how does doing that stop the thermonuclear reactions in every star in the universe? Wouldn’t they, like the engines, just have gotten more powerful?  (This is where Shiny's brain starts to think that Science is really Magic and wonders why the Scientists won't just admit it and be done with the matter....)

*sigh* All right, I’ll do it...this once.

“Famine” is a lack of food, in Ireland or anywhere else.
“Feminine” is the state of being like a female (at least, as our culture defines femininity).

Other Malapropisms:

“The reports were corregated by several others.” (sh/be corroborated)
“My husband got Viagra, and now he’s not impudent no more.” (sh/be impotent)
“It was worth threatening to chop off my medusa enchilada.” (sh/be medulla oblongata)

Get it?  Got it.  Good.

Now you can steal it and amaze your friends!  Just practice it to yourself, and wait for the perfect moment to spring it on the unsuspecting (it can be even funnier out loud).

Well, the speed of light is an universal law, so when you change it one place, you change it everywhere. When you increase it, the thermonuclear reactions in stars become more powerful. Given, right? Now let me explain.
A star is extremely massive. The only thing that keeps a star from collapsing in on itself is the energy released from the fusion in it's core. Now, if the speed of light decreased, then the energy would go down, disturbing the delicate balance of gravity vs. thermonuclear reactions. The star would then collapse into a dwarf, a neutron star, or a black hole. However, in order to cause the event horizion a black hole to shrink down to the physical surface of a black hole (which quite possibly has several hundred times the mass of our sun compressed down to a space a few miles across) the speed of light would have to be increased, so much that it would definitely tip the balance on these stars, causing them to literately explode. Actually, not so much as tipping the balance as much as banging down on the 'exploding' side of balance with enough force to send the other side flying into the air, splitting into sharp-edged pieces, landing on an innocent passerby and having to tell the police that he/she walked over a very sharp cattle grid while wearing an extremely heavy hat.

Okay, so you wouldn't have to restart the reactions; you'd have to find a new universe to live in because every piece of matter remotely near a star would have gone kablooey.

That makes much more sense.

Or he might have taken about five seconds to consider their relationship, have gotten over it, and aksed Hermes to evaluate the bracelet. When told it is worthless, suddenly he has something else to be depressed about instead.
