In Episode 306 - Bendless Love, Bender and Flexo become scab workers.
The mafia supports the union, and when they see Bender, disguised as Flexo, flashing his cash-loaf, they get very upset, because he's a scab.
But, how did they know that he was a scab worker?
Bender was always very discreet about sneaking into the factory, can we assume Flexo would do any less? I wouldn't want to push my way through that big crowd of worker-bots

Discreet?  He broke through the fence and walked right in.  I'd hardly call that sneaky.  How he managed to fool anyone is the real mistake.

The workers may not be that bright, but you can't get anything past the Robot Mafia.

I assumed Flexo and Anglelyne were known scabs.  They seem much more straightforward than Bender.

Bender told the workers he was gonna go in there and have a talk right?  and then ended up working there....  I can't remember but I think that's how it went.  Anyways if it is (if it isn't I'll be editing this post so I don't sound stupid  ;)) the case, then Flexo and Angeline were openly scabs while everyone thought Bender was just going in there to give him a piece of his mind (each and every day that is)....  :rolleyes:

In my opinion, the striking robots didn't really seem all that smart.  It's quite possible that they never noticed Bender sneaking into work all those days.

the first time we see him go in, he says he's going to "have a talk" with the manager (sal). he's lying, and he gets a job there.

the second time, all the strikers are looking the other way, so he goes in while pretending to join their yelling.

the robot mafia support the union so they may have seen flexo in the past and remember that he's a scab

well i'm just thinking since bender and flexo are both the same make and model of robot and presumably are the same age and whatever, and they fight symmetrically, one could presume that they'd take a similar stance towards not wanting to be killed by the robot mafia

Sorry too get off topic for just a moment, but there is something that has been bugging me.  Is the title  of this thread supposed to be ironic?

We can only hope it is.

Untill he tells us of course.

[Bender singing] The use of words expressing something other than their literal intention! Now that is"irony" [/bender] I don't know if it is or isn't supposed to be.

Let's assume it is and give JD a little credit.

I agree, he seems pretty on the ball with such things.
