I thought it would have been a really cool idea to switch Bender and Flexo halfway through the series without ppl knowing it except for their change in serial number.

Would that have annoyed you guys?  Or do you think it would have been a clever twist too?

It would depend on how and why they were exchanged in the first place, I suppose...

I don't actually think that Flexo would fit in as well as Bender, and they may be nearly the same, but I just think Bender goes well in the office.

Bender and Flexo don't act the same, it'd be easy to pick them out for me.

I actually liked the idea of the two switching places from "The Lesser of Two Evils" and "Bendless Love". You know, it's kind of like identical twins switching lives. For Bender and Flexo to fully fool everybody into believing that one is the other just takes some acting skills.

I love the idea of Bender being the evil twin. I used to love the opportunity to answer that stupid question "Do you think you have an evil twin out there?" with "You mean good twin."

Maybe Bender's the Flexo's backup discs can be switched.  I see this as a possibility.

Hmm...
It seems to me that that would give Bender and Flexo severe cases of schizophrenia, split personality, or their robotic analogues.

[*Gasp*]  :eek:

Y'know... that sounds like a right fine idea for a fan-fic.

They had the bender/Flexo serial number switcheroo in a deleted scene from "Bender gets made"

Certainly we all think about it, and it could even be pulled off, but with a series of complex plotholes and whatnot along the way. It would be harder for Bender to switch places than Flexo if they were to act the part....
